How Well You Know Me Or The Producers? Hrm.

11 Mar

mad-46338_1280I’ve been keeping my eye out for information on the new drama The Producers. Kim Soo Hyun working with the writer from You From Another Star again? Well, it worked so well the first time, why not give it another go?

And then it went down hill from there.

Why? Well, it’s pretty easy if you know me at all. (And, as Miss G over at Operation Kdrama Chat called me out on this the other day, she totally knows me!) One thing turned this drama from the ‘automatic watch’ column to a coveted spot on the ‘not even for a fist full of tacos’ list. Again, why you ask? Gong Hyo Jin? Nope. I lurve me some Gong Hyo Jin and for that reason even more than Kim Soo Hyun, I would have watched this. Is it IU then? Well, I’m not a huge IU fan as, while she’s super adorable, I personally don’t think she has a lot of acting range, but it’s not as if I dislike her enough to let her drive a wedge between me and Gong Hyo Jin. So then that leaves one person. Yep, you guessed it.

Cha Tae Hyun. GAH! Just the mention of his name was enough for me to go, “See you later Gong Hyo Jin, better luck next time.” Continue reading


Fun Friday: Top Five Dance Party Moments

6 Mar

In this cold, cold winter, stuck inside for days, I think we’re all going a little stir crazy. Unless you are on the west coast–and then I hate you.

A lot.

In times like these there is only one thing you can do to raise the spirit and get the blood pumping–and no I’m not talking a broody shower scene. Yep, you guessed it it’s time for a Dance Party! Now here are some of my Top Five kdrama Dance Party Moments. You know, characters getting their groove on!

City Hall

city hall 3

From a drama that turned from a light fun drama to a serious angst fest, it was great to have this last episode which was almost all epilogue, bringing us back to the light and fun. This song to Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry with almost all of our City Hall cast is one to remember. Makes me wish I worked at a job where I could group dance. You now, if only I could forget the episodes of office bickering and backstabbing which let up to this joyous occasion.  Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Couples of 2014

15 Jan

Graphic favorite couplesWhat do we want? Couples! When do we want them? RIGHT NOW! Seriously, if you don’t fork over good couples, we are fully prepared to riot in the streets. Think I’m joking? Go ahead and try us.

Good couples make me happy. Good couples can go a long way to making a bad drama better or by making a good drama just that much better. Seriously, not kidding, I’ve stuck it through many the bad drama because I’ve loved the couple (one of them being on this very list). What goes into a good couple? Well, good writing, acting, and most especially chemistry between the two actors.

Here’s my list of Top 5 favorite couples of 2014: Continue reading

It’s Okay, It’s An Extended Trailer

18 Jul

It's okay thats love

As the premier date for It’s Okay It’s Love is right around the corner (can you believe it’s next week? It’s almost enough to take the sting out of losing out on my weekly dose of Lee Seung Gi. Almost.) SBS has released an extended trailer, which is part teaser, part behind the scenes, and part maddening.

I officially give up on trying to understand what this plot is about. Gosh darn it, I have got to learn Korean so I can understand what they are saying. Why are they on TV? Are they in a group home? If not why are they all in the same house? I thought she was a therapist? If she is, why is she potentially having a relationship with her patient? But is he a patient? He looks like the usual full of it pain in the ass hero, but I’m not sure if that is a mental disorder. Continue reading

Breaking News: Gong Hyo Jin In A Car Accident After Filming

19 Jun

It's Okay That's LoveOh noes! Our Kdrama stars are taking a beating lately. Gong Hyo Jin, who is currently filming It’s Okay, It’s Love, was in a car accident yesterday and suffered a fractured arm! Again–oh noes! Luckily, despite the broken arm, she seems to be okay–as it was a three car accident and could have been a lot worse.

First off–I’m excited to hear that filming has already begun on It’s Okay, It’s Love as I, and a lot of other kdrama fans, are really looking forward to the drama. If they are filming, it means we’re that much closer to it’s premier date.  Continue reading

Breaking News: Lee Seung Gi Injured on Set

10 Jun

you're all surroundedOh noes! Word is coming out that Lee Seung Gi was injured on the set of You’re All Surrounded. Apparently he was stabbed in the eye with a fake knife. Waaah! The damage was serious enough to send him to the hospital and there he was diagnosed with corneal damage and bleeding in the eye.

*Shudder* Eye injuries are so squidgy.  Continue reading

Wednesday Shows Prempted

2 Jun

you're all surrounded 2

Don’t you hate it when real life gets in the way of Kdrama? Well, this is one of those times. Wednesday’s dramas have been preempted for elections. What does that mean for us? No New Leaf. Which is no real big deal for me since I’m not watching it (although it may be on the TBWList when it’s done). The big deal for me?

No You’re All Surrounded! Continue reading

You’re All Surrounded Teaser Puts All the Other Teasers To Shame

10 Apr

You're all surroundedI literally can not stop watching teasers (and for some reason I always want to capitalize Teaser. So, I was just saying no more than like an hour ago what a good teaser can do for a drama. (Sadly,Gap Dong’s teaser was a little lack-luster.) And I couldn’t be more right–and You’re All Surrounded proves it.

The soundtrack! The action! The comic book cuts! So much goodness in a 36 second package. Continue reading

Stranger Danger!

6 Feb
Surprise to me, I believe I’ve developed a resistance to Park Min Young. How did this happen? I mean, I remember her being perfectly serviceable in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. She’s certainly not like the girl from Bridal Mask where the very look on her face irritates me. So why was I happy to hear she declined the offer of Doctor Stranger? And then really bummed to read, in the same article, that she was ‘looking favorably’ on joining You’re Surrounded?

Drama Catch Up: Peeking in on Upcoming Dramas and Casting News

16 Jan

I’m  not sure where I’ve been but I’m feeling woefully behind the current casting news and new show information. It just goes to show that Kdrama stops for no man–or blogger.

For one I can’t believe that no only has Kim Hyun Joong’s drama Age of Feeling made it all the way through pre-production, found a network, and has already begun it’s run. Awww…is it weird I feel proud of our little Kim Hyun Joong? Despite this, I can say I honestly have no intention of watching this drama. I know what you’re saying…but…but…what about this? kim-hyun-joong

KHJ got freaking built for this drama. Seriously what happened to our little JiHoo? Continue reading
