- Bodyguards aren’t bodyguards without luscious locks
This could have been a movie, but I don’t think so. More likely it was a show I dropped near the beginning. I watched it probably 2-3 years ago. I’ve been trying to think of it for months now but nothing comes to mind. So, I’ll try to pin down the sparse details I do recall…l
It’s definitely sageuk and I’m pretty sure it takes place in Joseon, because I remember the female lead had the unmarried braid hairstyle. She was a princess, or maybe a noble. The male lead is her bodyguard, I think, and he had a ponytail with some hair loose in the front like Gil-dong’s and wore brown(?). The female lead was upset at him a lot I’m pretty sure, can’t remember about what though. There was also something about a tiger or something similar… but it escapes me.
Oh boy, aha, good luck.
- Old-school fantasy
I have been thinking of asking about this for a long time. I will really appreciate your help.
It’s also an old drama. I watched it around 2001 or 2002 on KBS. It was about an angel and a devil fighting over one hundred souls. The devil is a man and the angel is a girl (I think she works as a florist). In the drama, they are already on their last soul, and it’s the soul of the hero. What I remember was that the house of the devil has a lot of clocks. When a soul is won by the dark side or by either side, his clock stops. So in the devil’s house, only one clock ticks.
Thats all I can remember. Thanks a lot for your time!
- Gah, I hate when they pull a “This was all a dream!”
Help! I can’t figure out what this drama is called. I remember it being an early 2000s drama and the ending. It turns out that the whole drama was a dream or the imagination of the female lead.
- Name That Movie
Hi! I would really like to find this movie about a young boy and his father (there is no mother). The father is a minor action actor and always gets beaten up in films, but he endures it anyway to earn money for his son. One day, his son encounters a violin and becomes fascinated by it, but he gets in trouble every time he asks for his father to buy the violin for him because they’re poor. Anyway, one day this rich woman who’s infertile sees the young boy getting hit by his father after asking for a violin and she takes him away whenever the father is not around. Eventually, the infertile woman and her husband become very close to the young boy.
Meanwhile, the father gets beaten up everyday in movie shoots trying to scrap up enough money to buy his son a violin. BUT, when he finally does, he finds out that the rich lady and her husband have already bought him one. Eventually the son goes to America with the rich lady and her husband with the permission of his father to study more music. Then the movie flashes forward to the boy all grown up and going to Korea to see his father (who is very sick) for the first time in several years. He’s a violinist now, but he’s temporarily quit the violin. He also hates the rich lady and her husband even though they still love him. Anyway, at the very end of the movie, the father dies.
Please tell me if you know the name of this movie! I’ve been searching for it for years. It should be quite old by now since I watched it several years ago. Thank you!
- Ghosts and their demands, man
Hi! I have a drama or a movie (I can’t remember) that I have been having trouble looking for over the past year. There was this one scene in which the main character went in a bus, and everyone in the bus suddenly had scary makeup. He was getting haunted by a female ghost who wanted something on the bus. They went under a tunnel, and then when they came out, the main character begged for forgiveness and agreed to do what she wanted because he was scared of the ghosts.
- This sounds pretty dark for a drama
This drama has been bugging me for ages, but I can’t find it ANYWHERE! The main girl has a stepfather, or her mum has a boyfriend, and he’s a MASSIVE stalker. I remember in one scene, he stalks her to a room where she plays the piano, and the male lead hears it and is drawn to it as he remembers that piano tune that his father used to play to him.
I”m not entirely sure, but either the guy or the stepfather tells the girl to take off her clothes. The step father ends up leaving, and the male lead and girl get trapped in the room. They hear a noise and it scares the girl, but it turns out to be a bird with a broken wing stuck behind the furniture, and she helps it.
The male lead ends up telling his story of his father and something about rollerblading, since I think the room is a part of his house. But he tells the story vaguely as though he’s telling a random story. The girl catches on and realizes that it’s about him, and then she vaguely gives advice to him. They end up falling asleep in the room together, and they end up getting out of the room when someone unlocks it. The guy then protects the girl from her stepfather.
If someone could please help me figure out this drama I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks for playing, everyone — till next time!
