The Vampire Boys, idols, and managers of Vampire Idol

girlfriday: Omg.

javabeans: So. This looks amazing. In one sense of the word amazing.

girlfriday: Like scrape-your-jaw-off-the-floor amazing? Wonder-if-you’re-sober amazing?

javabeans: I-guess-the-description-really-was-accurate amazing?

girlfriday: I’m not sure WHAT I imagined for alien vampire prince who travels to Earth to become an idol star, but this is definitely BETTER.

javabeans: Also: I pictured ONE vampire, Little Prince style. This is vampire clan.

girlfriday: It’s High Kick: Counterattack of the Short Fangs.

javabeans: It’s basically Hello Franceska all over again, which is great because that show was great. (Centuries-old vampires under persecution pass themselves off as a normal Korean family and try to blend in.)

girlfriday: I can already tell the Shin Dong-yup / Kim Sumi couple is going to be my favorite. She’s human so she ages, and he’s a vamp so he stays young.

javabeans: That’s so sad. It’s like Buffy: The Golden Years.

girlfriday: Right? ‘Cause that’s real life. Well…. yunno… real life if vampires were real. Ha. I love that they’re not doing the slick Vampire Prosecutor version of vampiness, but the straight-up Nosferatu, Interview With a Vampire -watching version of high camp.

javabeans: I think the idol boy wannabes are gonna be a hoot. Each boy on his own is actually pretty good, but hasn’t had a chance to shine solo yet. Singer Lee Jung is the vampire prince, also from Nonstop 5. Lee Soo-hyuk is from What’s Up and Tree With Deep Roots. Hong Jong-hyun, I’ve had my eye on — he’s from Ghost, Jungle Fish 2, Oh My Lady, Warrior Baek Dong-soo. And, get this — he plays a vamp with an IQ of 700. Is that even possible?

girlfriday: Wut? If it is, my regular-sized IQ can’t comprehend it.

javabeans: The fourth member is played by a model named Kim Hyun-joong.

girlfriday: That is a very unfortunate name. Dude, change it.

javabeans: You’d think he could’ve picked a stage name, huh? So here’s the deal. Lee Jung is a real (well, “real”) vampire prince and the lead singer. And Lee Soo-hyuk is a bloodsucking vamp. But our four boys are part of an idol group named Vampire Boys, with real managers and stuff. So…

girlfriday: So they’re a gimmick band, but then, they’re really vamps?

javabeans: Are they vampires posing as humans acting as vampires?

girlfriday: Hahaha. That’s so awesome. I suppose it’s as good a cover as any.

javabeans: Get this — the name of their planet is Vampirutus. Or Vampyrutus? But you know what would make my day? If it were VamPirates.

girlfriday: Like Argh, ye matey?

javabeans: Like, I vant to suck your blood, arrrrr.

girlfriday: My head might explode from the colliding of genres. The space vampire thing is hard enough to wrap the brain around.

javabeans: And THEN! There’s a girl group called…. Girls Girls.

girlfriday: Are they vamps too?

javabeans: They’re human, but part of the same agency as the Vampire Boys. One dates a vamp, one figures out the vamps’ identity first, one is a rival to the vamps’ manager girl.

girlfriday: So there are only male vampires in this world? How come all the vamps are dudes?

javabeans: Blame Twilight.

girlfriday: Daaaammnnn Youuuuuu Twiiiiiiliiiight! If these vampidols twinkle/shine/sparkle from anything other than stage glitter, it’s over.

You haven't seen Victor Victoria, Raine? You've missed. It's about a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman. It's old, but it's a really great comedy. One of Dame Julie Andrews' best. You should definitely look it up sometime.

White Christmas was that triller school drama on KBS right? I've wanted to watch it, but I cant take even "Scary Movie" style horror so I kind of avoided it.

Is it a monster movie horror or simply a thriller?

That depends on how you define "monster" :D It's a psychological thriller, but it addresses the issue of people becoming "monsters,"---not literally, but through their thoughts and actions. I really enjoyed, it but it definitely is creepy.

So... umm... if all the vampires are boys, *hopefully* they have female vampires on their planets. *thinking of reproduction*.

Unless their secret goal to come to Earth is to find a wife.

Cue contract marriage between human and vampire!!!

Btw, who's the "lead"? Unless its going High Kick style and focus on everyone.

Finding female "mates" sounds similar to some trashy romance novels I've read (guilty pleasure I assure you).

I do hope it's like High Kick. The boys are pretty but I also love some of the seasoned actors in this.

I just cant wait for the ridiculousness. The photos look just like the High Kick promos, and high kick is crazy enough without all of the vampire-ness thrown in there!!

*goes crazy*

Seriously. I love all of the actors already in here, and I'm sure the newbies will be just as fun to watch! Shin Dong Yup <3 Kim Sumi <3

IQ of 700? *dazed* :( It's like Limitless. Is he going to be super broody or super quirky?

And, KWANGHEE?! WTF? I didnt know that he was in this. I know he's a real "idol" but I've seen him on variety shows and the boy puts the craze in crazy. Fuh real.

I'm more giddy for this than I am for What's Up. And I've been waiting for What's up forever.

I know Lee Jung and Kwanghee the Energizer Bunny are a welcome surprise. I recognize them more for their variety show than anything else. But this will be awesome indeed.

Jung Ui Chul--YESS,where is he...? Very unforgettable during his short stint on BOF....

Lee Jung and Kim Sumi were lots of fun as the demanding mother and slow son on the fun-looong sit com Unstoppable Marriage back in 2008. Sooo now they are redeeming him with an IQ of 700...

This looks lots of fun, can't wait... Need funny shows vs long tearjerker dramas...

Thanks JB and GF...

Damn, Twilight has really tainted anything vampirey for me. The whole "vampires trying to live as normal people" thing just seems OWNED by it now (and not in a good way). Now I'll just be expecting one of the human girls to stubbornly and selfishly insist on becoming a vampire too. Does Korea even have any mythology about blood-sucking immortal humans?

If this goes for straight-up comedy I might be interested.

This. Looks. Hilarious. I love how they cast idols for their LOL factor - Kwanghee and Minah are going to be a hoot, I can already tell. I hope this gets subbed, and I miraculously have time to watch it.

Also, I KNEW Pyung was Lee Soo-hyuk. Don't know how I missed it in the TWDR recaps, but it's been bothering me for ages - "He looks so familiar..."

Why do vampires and 'other' creatures (gumiho) have blue eyes in Korean drama's?

reply

Required fields are marked *

In Korea blue eyes are considered to be either a mystical or a monster-like trait. Wayy back in the past if a child had blue eyes due to some off-genes (a very rare case), then he/she were usually treated as freaks, being called fish-eyes and such. Now blue eyes are more of a magical trait.

(Eye Candy for the Young). Flower Boys for my taste and age like Jo Ji Sub Love his eyes !! Park She Hoo love his smile , Lee Ki-Woo i love his tallness i would have to wear 5 inch heels..
