WWW is so good. Its take on women dominating the workforce is fresh for kdramas. I can't remember the name but there was an American show of the same kind where women dominated the work force and men would only be as a romantic interest. Plus ISJ is kicking it out of the park. Love BTM but its just her name pronounce fully that it sounds like how koreans pronounce vitamin. The show seems to be made by keeping the Bechdel test in mind. However, I wonder how long would the work environment remain interesting. I like dramas that focus on characters life other than work better.

OTTH Ten miles of peach blossoms is what brought me out of slump. Such a great show. Still remember the buzz around it when it was aired but conveniently avoided it because other c dramas had disappointed. I'm glad this didn't, in fact it remained consistently good without me skipping a single episode. Also it helped that i didn't have to suspend my belief because this time around immortals were flying. Are there any other c dramas like this one or was this a rarity?

Cdramas can definitely disappoint. The ones that didn't disappoint me were

Legend of Minglan -- no superpowers at all but a good story.

All is well -- contemporary story about a family.

The Eternal Love 1, 2. -- silly, tragic, romantic.

Story of yanxi palace -- good although if you're not all about the "girl being seen and wanted by emperor" trope, you might be disappointed with the turn the story takes. I get annoyed with all these men having tons of women who are somehow not perfect for their imperial selves. Am not a fan of concubine wars.

Ever Night was my crack but it may not be for everyone. -- Not a lot of gods but tons of folks with powers. It's historical fantasy so if you try to watch it, you'll have to get a quick wiki-look at all the different warring states then somehow merge it into that fantasyland. Tons of characters scheming so it's confusing as heck the first fifteen or so episodes.

Ashes of Love is fun. Silly, funny, romantic, weird, tragic. It's not historical fantasy because it takes place outside of history but if you're up for weirdness, you might like it.

@wapzy If you like fantasy CDramas I can rec Chinese Paladin 5: Clouds of the World. Lots of filler eps in the middle but the show comes to a conclusion that actually makes sense; overall it's fun, the cast is solid, and there's Epic Bromance. On Viki. For something more realistic but with a touch of fantasy there's Love O2O which is about 2 gamers who discover they're both going to the same college in Beijing. Sequences set inside the MMO are filmed with the actors dressed up like for a fantasy TV show. Based on a novel, it has a complete story; a bit much filler in the middle but overall really satisfying. The show directly addresses some of the concerns women who play games on the internet have about harassment and has some realistic drama in the gaming group eerily similar to things I've seen in online groups I've been in. Available on Viki AND Netflix.

I loved Legend of Minglan. I finished Guardian, and started Ashes of Love. The problem for me is that C-drama is just so long that it takes forever to finish. I have yet to continue peach blossoms which I lost interests watching.

I really liked Bloody Romance, torture, sadism and all. Couldn't watch Goodby My Princess because I liked the 2nd lead too much and didn't like the first lead. However, it's still on my list to watch at some time or other.

OTOH: I didn't really like most of the ones listed above but have my own favorite ones that are less popular. If you liked Yang Mi in 10 miles, try her and Ethan Ruan in Legend of Fuyao. Wow, what chemistry, a different kind of chemistry than 10 Miles, very flirty and light hearted.
I did like Chinese Paladin 5 with Elvis Han (oops, need to watch it again). It's a little more shallow in the beginning, but Elvis is quite adorable.
Right now I'm really loving Zhu Yi Long in Granting You a Dreamlike Life. If you like Republican Era dramas (tragic endings are the norm) this one is really good. It's a story within a drama. The beginning and ending are modern times but she tells the story of her grandmother's love during the late 1930s. The story has a tragic ending, but she ends up with Zhu Yi long in the modern story. What gorgeous outfits too! If the editing and CGI seem below par, I think it's done deliberately since it's a story she's narrating.

CRICKET -

Australia Won against West Indies. Stupid play from Indies guys. This one was pretty good match. Waiting Semifinal and final of Wimbledon

Also Nadal vs. Federer - I was expecting much more from it.

@playstore then they expect audience to watch a show which is specifically on pay channels. That was terrible display of an world event.
Cricket has lost popularity in England.
Next Ashes is the one igniting more interest among fans.

Happy weekend Beanies!

As usual I am occupied this fine Friday afternoon. The past Friday afternoons were booked for doctor visits, job exams and weekend trips, but I am pleased to spend this Friday just cleaning and doing chores in my own room. It is tempting to just be lazy and postpone it all, but after the busy month of May I need to spend this weekend sleeping and relaxing rather than doing those chores in between other activities.

The first draft of the weekend schedule predicts a one day delay of work preparations from Sunday to Monday, since next Monday is a national holiday. There is also a local fair on Father’s Day, which will be extra special, because how often can you go out on a Sunday evening? However, I am looking forward the most to Saturday tomorrow, because I have ZERO plans then! Yep, definitely an introvert. :P

Of course a Beanie always has ambitions….there are still about 50 unread Dramabeans articles and K-drama episodes waiting for me… I already bought the snacks and alcohol last weekend. Just in case. ;)

Happy weekend, everyone!
It’s my first time participating in two consecutive weeks of OT here.
I’ve been following One Spring Night, quite diligently and this week’s episodes were worth it, too.
Additionally, I watched one movie this week. I was supposed to study since the exam is getting nearer. It was SoulMate, Chinese movie. The movie won historical shared best actress awards by both of the lead actresses. It was worth giving my time. I was pleasantly surprised as the plot went on. And I want to recommend it to someone who likes sentimental melancholy story with friendship and love. The actresses were the best. Zhou Dongyu has won me twice in this movie, and in Us and Them.

Hello all:
Ah me, apparently this is the time of life where juggling is the skill we all need. I must've learned this in a kdrama somewhere but had forgotten. Well, now i remember. Am sitting here packing up our household goods but still have no houses bought or apartments rented. Not even sure if we're staying in this state. So, NYS has decided that they haven't seen my son's blood in a while. Since, ya know, it's something of a drama to get and they fear breaking his hand because the kid freaks out and fights because of needles. Hence, they have given us a sedative for him and will be coming with needle et al to our house to take blood. The struggle is real.

Dramas:

WWW -- am loving this so far. Strong, feisty heroine, business drama, noona romance, revenge-competition drama. We've had a lot of noona romances/business dramas this season. And the age of the heroine is pretty much not the main issue. So good! I like this heroine because she is tough but not feral. She's very kind-hearted except with nasty people. The romance is sweet but the male counterpart of our heroine is so perfect that he seems a bit like a wish-fulfillment figure. Waiting to see him develop an actual personality.

Perfume -- noona wacky, absurdist, giddy, fashion biz. I love our hero in this. His go-to assumptions for things are werewolf, vampire, and anything supernatural. For a phobic personality, he's prickly and fearful but so sweet.

Arthdal -- Loving this. It's hitting the main beats of prehistoric anthropology and the journey of the hero-god. Am loving that it's echoing what is happening in the modern world with all the imperialistic theft going on around the globe..while also working with the whole greed issue korean filmmakers are currently dealing with. But it's not preachy, at least so far.

Abyss -- my crack drama. Am amazed at its great plotting and unpredictability. Loving all the side characters. I want abyss back in our hero's hands.

One Spring Night -- the war has begun and Giseok is no joke. He has steel, and possibly cruelty, in him. The competition in the basketball games was foreplay to the real competition. Am hating that dentist. Love Soe-in's gameplay. I keep thinking this drama dramatizes the adage: "love is war."

Secret of My Secretary -- I hate kdrama dependence on lies and dragging out the lies and misunderstanding. But i love this drama so much and our hero is so sweet and needy, i shall soldier on.

Watching several current cdramas and My Dear Boy, an oldie.

That's about it. Have a great weekend, all.

I'm apparently on a KDrama hiatus now that Her Private Life is over. There's a couple shows that looked good but I'm not sure if I'll be circling back to catch them after all. I actually forgot about Big Story after it went on hiatus for a week. I mean I was scrolling through Viki and was all "oops wait I was watching that and I thought I really liked it?"

The thing is, in life, if you don't feel passion about something you like the worst thing you can do is force yourself to keep after it. So I'll be off doing other things and maybe around more later in the summer.

Hi Everyone and Happy OT!
Over here, Aidil Fitri can last a couple of weekends, so although the actual day is past, I still wish all Muslims a Happy Aidil Fitri!

My helper went on home leave and my washing machine broke down. It's been an interesting week with family helping with selected housework, eclectic meals (which I do not actually cook) and running to the laundromat. Fortunately work was not too demanding and I still had time (read: stole time) for shows.

Angel's Last Mission: Love - Once again I find I'm drawn to shows where some young folks suffer and need to be healed, but don't know it, and they heal each other and more people even, in spite of themselves. Plus there's a pretty cute and warm romance with chemistry in spades, and a complication or 3 with one half of the OTP not fully human (yet!). So much to love!

One Spring Night - Still a good study of emotions, decisions and the various ways people respond to a dilemma or shocking news. However I'm beginning to skip watch the non-OTP scenes. When the couple is together it's all good.

I'm happily rewatching Le Coup De Foudre. It's quite a gem and a re-watch enables me to appreciate the nuances and the fact that it's pretty well written, all the parts hang together and the characters are consistent from past into present but they do grow. And I don't really think the first separation is noble idiocy because the reason for not communicating makes sense.

What I am unexpectedly appreciating about the modern Chinese shows ... they are down to earth in their dressing. It's realistic. For instance, the lead female in Put Your Head on My Shoulder, being a student, repeatedly wears the same tops and probably bottoms in multiple scenes. That's what we do in RL after all. I eye-roll scenes where poor characters end up wearing designer clothes without repeating a single piece (for eg. Legend of the Blue Sea).

Too sleepy now ... I'll be back!

Between you and the BitchesOverDramas, you've made me interested in Angel. When I first watched it I wasn't impressed with the first couple episodes and since there's 30 things I want to watch even more I dropped it. But now I'm looking for clues...

With the little bit I've watched, I've wondered if Dan acts so naive and immature because he actually died as a child. Dunno, I usually make guesses too early w/o seeing all the clues first...

The same thoughts came through my mind. But somehow, although I might deplore the immaturity and flailing in other characters, with Dan, it just seems right. We also come to understand that he really has had no experience with human beings and he's becoming a human and an adult at the same time.

It helps tremendously that he's so charming and so earnest as well. 😍

2

@growingbeautifully Come to think of it, I might be putting my childhood beliefs of angels into this. I was taught we become angels when we die, but I don't think that's what the Christian Bible says...
I don't know kdrama beliefs about angels, whether they're former humans or just made.
My dad truly believed he'd become a god - he even had picked out which galaxy in the universe he wanted to rule over. Heaven help those poor souls with my dad in charge.

I'm finally finishing off Beauty Inside, and there's this English song that plays sometimes as an OST in these latter episodes. It's brilliant, and I can't find it ANYWHERE.

Speaking of brilliant English OSTs: Bom Bam is killing me with all the Rachael Yamagata. And the lyrics go beyond typical angsty love songs.

It has been a sad week for me, I just want to let everything out.
One of my dogs passed away this monday and one of the other 2 has cancer and has no much time left. I cried like a baby for 3 days. I lost her while we were on our way to a pet hospital and I am about to lost another one. They are my babies, I don't have kids.
Tomorrow we are going away for a little vacay with the family and next week is my birthday, this trip is a birthday celebration for my sister and me but I have no mood to celebrate, Am I wrong?
I want to cheer up but I feel a hole in my heart.
I need a good drama to help me to heal, one that does not make me cry, help me beanies I know you will, I trust you.

I am so sorry to hear this. I lost my dog Finn to an accident - hit and run - in a housing estate (I am so angry!) - just this March. It was so traumatic and I cried and cried. I still do when I think of him (am tearing now) and the ache remains. They are family. But a friend said to me - that Finn loved me too and he would not want me to be depressed and down because of him and that he'd want me to be happy. Somehow that comforted me. Our pets love us as much as we love them and they are always looking out to comfort us and are happy to make us happy. We do not forget. We remember the good times and the good memories and that is where they live on forever. I pray that your dog with cancer will not suffer and will have a peaceful passing when the time comes. I pray that you will dwell on the good times and remember them for their happy faces and smiles and loving.

Hi,

Today is first summer vacation for my daughter until she starts summer school in two weeks. My other two kids are still in school. Their last day is Tuesday June 18.

Novoland:Eagle Flag seem to be lots of rumors of why it did not show during this week. I do hope they air it because I was really looking forward to this drama then any other dramas.

Other than that, my hubby is on business trip doing trade show. Therefore, I am single parent until next week. I have been watching Chinese drama and Korean drama here and there. So far, some shows are ok then others. I am waiting hubby to get back to watch my favorite show The Handmaiden’s Tale. I heard the first three episodes are really good. I also have one book on Amazon Kindle that I need to read before the fourth book coming out end of this year.

Happy Friday everyone!!!!

The Secret Life of My Secretary 8.5/10 Another one I am finding super cute. I wasn't going to watch this as I am tired of the female secretary and overbearing male boss. But both characters are weirdos and I am so far liking both their characters and their interactions together immensely. I also like how naturally it has played out how and why Gal-Hee ends up cosplaying as Veronica Park. And speaking of Veronica Park, I LOVE her.

Her Private Life 8.5/10 So far I am quite enjoying this drama. I wasn't sure if I would as I don't get fangirls and even find some creepy and extreme, but they have done a good job balancing it in the show. She is definitely a huge fangirl but for the most part she keeps it on the downlow. I also get her, as when I was a teenager I was huge into anime but I kept it SUPER SECRET to the point that not even my friends knew I was into it. The relationship is cute and Ryan has loosened up and become sweet. He still has some growing to do but he is an enjoyable character and I like that he takes responsibility for his actions such as apologizing when he is in the wrong. Overall I am really enjoying this drama and hope it stays cute!

Scarlet Heart 7.5/10 I actually saw the Korean version of this first (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) and the Chinese version is so much better. The Korean version was so angsty and had unneeded forced drama and for some reason they went full edge-lord with Lee Joon-gi's character. The actors and characters are also much better and realistic in this Chinese version and I am ultimately enjoying this drama. Even though there is romance and love it's not really about that. It's more of a drama depicting the life of a modern woman who finds herself in the Qing dynasty and her time there (she spends 20+ years there) and her being caught between the many princes and their struggle for the throne.

Well-Intended Love 6.5/10 I was loving the first few episodes of this and then Ling Yi Zhou got super controlling and domineering and pulled some really really shady stuff to end up with Xia Lin. Thankfully she called him out on it and by the end he had fixed his overbearing ways. But the drama also had some over-the-top villains that made the drama a little ridiculous at times. It was overall ok but I did love how lovey-dovey the main couple was. They also had really good chemistry with each other.

Guardian 6/10 I was initially liking this but the drama has gotten pretty bad and it's clearly a lower budget drama. I really like the main characters and actors and their interactions with each other and the premise. But pretty much everything else is not good. The side characters aren't very good and some are so obnoxious it makes it almost unwatchable. One of the worst characters I have seen in a drama is in this one, who I call a useless piece of meat (Xiao Guo). He makes many more issues then helping and is just so so so annoying. The villain is super cliche and over-the-top. There are dramatic moments that are super contrived and easily remedied, but the drama ignores logic to progress the plot and make drama. And most of the actors aren't very good. I dropped this at about ep. 20 and probably wont finish it.

For the most part, I blame Chinese censors for Guardian turning into the drama that it was. The original novel was mythology-based. However, right around middle to end of filming, Chinese censors issued new regulations effectively banning TV shows based on such material. So a whole bunch of stuff had to be reworked. And the production team ran out of money!

Since then in cdramas, Chinese mythological beings/creatures have been turned into aliens from outer space.

Also, regulators demanded less bloodshed, violence, and dark societal undertone. Instead, they wanted more optimism and positivity. Thus, Xiao Guo was turned into the naive, clumsy, "What I learned today" guy. All supporting characters received major revisions almost unrecognizable from their original forms.

The original story itself was complex. Cdramas, made for all-ages audience, often end up being quite simplistic. Villains tend to be the first to be simplified.

So, first semester exam starts next week Thursday, kicking off with a compulsory course; jurisprudence. I’ve been reading since morning, yesterday, Wednesday, however I’m not understanding. I always knew I cannot write nor can I remember things the way it’s written (texts in sections included), so I try my best to understand the topic and put it in my own words. But, jurisprudence is impossible to learn. I’m not grasping the message it’s trying to pass across. Most of the time, I’m reading and I stop, because I don’t remember what the correlation between what I’m reading and previous passages have. I can’t read it alone because I have company law and labor law and family law to read too. I’m scared that I might fail this course.

TGIF! Hope everyone had good week. I am glad to see comment section is alive again for some recaps because I was sad to see so little comments for many wonderful recaps. (and the more recaps, the merrier- sad some are missed: Who else did get chills watching Kim Young-min(paster)'s acting in Rescue Me2? It surpassed Seo Ye-ji's such acting in S1) I'm the one who reads recaps diligently because there is always something I find I missed watching the show. Anyway interviews this week were still mostly about the film Parasite, but there were a few interviews from casts in Special Labor Inspector Jo Jang-poong. I checked one for Kim Dong-wook who played the lead Inspector Jo.

[OSEN,StarNews, 2019/06/02-03] Jo Jang-poong is a drama about Jo Jin-gap (Jang-poong means powerful wind), an Judo-trained physical ed. teacher who could not bear injustice in the past, and now 6th year government worker and his heroic act punishing evil business owners as labor supervisor of the Ministry of Employment and Labor. The show received rave review with realistic depiction of the workplace, and a fantasy punishment on the power-abusing employers and the authorities. It ended with highest viewership ratings among shows in same time slot. Kim Dong-wook, who got recognition in both TV and big screen through "The Guest" and "With God" last year, took the "one top lead role" for the first time with this project.

When asked how he felt now that the show ended, Kim said, "It ended up drawing a rising curve better than I thought, and the viewers responded well. I'm very satisfied because the ratings went up at the end rather than the first time we started. It would be a lie if I say I didn't feel burdened. Even though I was not stressed enough to have trouble with shooting, I was nervous but luckily, we got better response after the second or third week of broadcasting. So I think I filmed having alternation of joy and grief. Most of all, it is relief that it ended without any problem or accident."

"I was worried about the ratings on the set every time. I liked it when it came out well, and we consoled each other saying, "Let's not be sad." when it fell. I thought that we would do better after the first week of broadcasting, because some of the texts came out fun, and some scenes came out more creative than the text. So I thought we could finish with much better response than when we started."

For Kim Dong-wook, Jo Jang-poong was the first title-roll project he challenged after 15 years of acting. "It was natural that responsibility and burden I felt became bigger as it was my first one-top lead/title role. As the lead character Jo Jin-gap, this was the project that I had a lots of things to do, in addition to the large amount of screen time. So I prepared thoroughly before starting shooting and I devoted much effort so that I could keep going until the end without faltering in the middle physically." Kim continued, "If I keep thinking...

..."I have to do it myself alone" then I might overdo, and I will miss what I have to do. It was clear that there were many parts I was responsible acting-wise, but I concentrated not to feel uncomfortable on the set.

Kim made preparation intensely for the show. "I seemed to pay attention to appearance a lot this time. As well as the stylistic part, the gestures, the speaking tone, and so on.-I seemed to have worried about these a lot. But I think it was expressed well." In particular, to play a former judo athlete and a physical ed. teacher, Kim gained about 10kg to express his long time off from the sports. "I thought it would be good if he had more weight and rugged look than having an athlete's body. But it was situation I had to gain fast against the speed of gaining naturally."

"I was out of breath since I was overweight when I filmed action scenes. I gained weight steadily doing exercise at the beginning, but when I was in the middle of shooting, I didn't have time to exercise and my body became duller. When I received the first 4 episodes of the script, I thought "Oh, there is a lot of action scenes" but it kept coming until after mid-section." Kim said he had learned Judo himself for realistic action scenes. "I felt burdensome because it should not look clumsy." But he was attracted to judo's charm. "It's a very attractive sports, and I'm trying to learn in earnest." When he heard there was an article about his weight, Kim laughed. "I am thinking of controlling somewhat now because of my health problems."

Even though he had to make such efforts, the reason Kim Dong-wook chose the project as his first title role project was because he was greedy on the part of the character. "I am personally pleased with Joe Jang-poong. Many reasons there are. It was my first title role, and I was able to show other professional skills which was different from action I had shown in other dramas, and in acting area, it had both of comedy and fantasy, and these things were greedy elements for an actor, and the script was also very interesting. In fact, I received a title role proposal before too. I am not saying those works were not good, but Joe Jang-poong was the project that gave me the desire to achieve something. It's important how you do the first time since the start is half, they say. It seems to me that this start was not bad, and I fastened the first button successfully. Personally, I am very thankful for all people I worked with. It was the work that I felt very much burdened by both acting and physical strength-wise, apart from lots of screen time and my weight, but we finished without any trouble- it was project with big lesson itself and great experience for me."

But Kim was cautious talking about topic in the show. There were the scenes and settings that reminded people of the events that stirred up the real Korean society. "I have seen only small part not to be able to talk about labor world. Some people are still experiencing some of plots our drama told, and they are real for some people, so I'd be impudent if I dare to say the word "I'm sympathizing." He continued, "There was cautious parts acting. Because when they bring incidents in real news into the drama and portray it, the actors must clearly recognize its sensitiveness when they act. However I realized again that there is such an environment. It was expressed in the show to a certain extent, and some of them were a bit out of the reality, but at least, drama presented fantasy and wish "It will be nice if such incidents are resolved." I was even more cautious when approaching the lighter and funny scenes."

To play the role, Kim tried to understand the world of civil servants and labor supervisors he didn't have chance to meet, by receiving the materials from production team, search/find the interviews, etc. As a result of his study and experience through the project, he was amazed how this occupation looked difficult. "It seems like a real hard job. It is occupation with very big responsibility and a sense of duty. It is job which has much trouble in its own way."

In the show, Kim had various helpers, such as Cheon Duk-gu (Kim Kyung-Nam) and Ju Mi-ran (Park Se-young), and worked with hoobae actors. "They are so sincere, humane, and true friends. Since they are guys who can act well, I felt assured. And we became very close personally too. I was able to act more and more comfortably on the set as time passed. As we make the drama together and share acting-wide, it seemed the scenes we appeared together came out solidly." Kim made personal efforts to show stable, harmonious acting with hoobae actors. Kim Kyung-nam has already revealed the fact Kim Dong-wook bought the meal, and confessed his gratitude and warm atmosphere of the set. Kim said, "It was not like I lead to change the atmosphere. I thought "Let's not stand out. Let's not make people feel uncomfortable." It was Oh Dae-hwan sunbae-nim who played Goo Dae-gil who led the set atmosphere pleasant. Isn't it fun just watching him acting?"

Kim continued, "I was sorry to Se-young ssi personally." In the show they were divorced couples, but they recovered their relationship in the second half. "We wrapped up in pink at the end, but mostly bromance with male actors were commented.". Furthermore, He mentioned the comment about chemistry made him most happy. "I feel good when I hear "His/Kim's chemistry with actors is good.", "Those actors' chemistry is excellent." "

When asked about the episodes which especially made him angry in the show, Kim laughed saying "Many". "There are many scenes where I felt hate toward the employers and got angry...

...watching them. Like when Yang Tae-soo (Lee Sang-yi) and Choi Seo-ra (Song Ok-suk) appeared, and when employees were dismissed at the beginning. There were so many scenes where I thought "How they can do that?" from a common-sense standpoint. About synchronization with his character, Kim said "I don't know how I'd think and actually do since I haven't experienced such situation much. But I don't want to feel ashamed to myself, so I don't think I will make a cowardly choice."

In the show Jo Jin-gap punished vicious business owners as a typical "hero" character who could not tolerate injustice, giving the viewers thrilling catharsis. "It is not easy to live like Jo Jin-gap in real life. I don't really know how righteous I am usually, but I'm not going to live cowardly. I like hero genre very much, and I think hero is attractive and good because he is needed to someone, and can solve the problem, not because he has special ability. I think we succeeded if people felt "He is hero needed in reality." watching Jo Jing-gap."

Is there Jo Jin-gap's unique charm Kim wants to take after? "If I have a similar trait with Jo Jin-gap, that is the fact we think people are the most important. I think that I want to meet nice people and live together, and Jin-gap gained more and more friends he could trust as time passed. Wouldn't that be Jin-gap person's charm? I want to be like that."

Some viewers are talking about Season 2. "First, I have to receive a proposal.", he said and revealed there was no specific discussion at the wrap-up meeting.
Kim Dong-wook's goal of sending Jo Jang-poong off is to restore the increased weight to a healthy state. Kim was happy seeing the favorable comment about his chemistry with actors, but was not happy with the comments like "Why he doesn't take care of his weight" because he gained the weight for the work specifically. However, he said, "It is the part that you have embrace as an actor."

Kim plans to take a rest for a while and choose his next projects. "When the next work is decided, I will adjust my weight according to my role. First I plan to lose some weight while I work out. None of clothes I used to wear fits. Haha." He especially wants to do scuba diving which is his favorite hobby.

KDW fighting! I thought "wow this is not joke" when I read three labor unions sent the snack/coffee trucks to the filming site when Jo Jang-poong drama was airing.

Thanks for the interview @fanwho! I really enjoyed Jo Jang Poong's adventures because of the thrill of seeing good and justice prevail at the end of the day.

I did notice he looked bulkier (I thought it was the clothes and the puffed jacket) but didn't realise he had gained weight. I could tell he paid attention to his appearance because he had a funny little walk, not the elegant strutting I remember from RADIANT OFFICE.

Aw, it's nice and yet sad that he felt he needed to apologise to Park Se Young. Her part was really minor for a female lead, which was my only complaint. It felt more like an ensemble drama actually, with several strong women.

Thank you for translating @fanwho. This drama was so much fun to watch.

Thanks @fanwho 😃. I too was so happy to find great interest in at least 1 show (Angel) again, that I'm watching, so that our comment section has become loads of fun. Reading all kinds of ideas and deductions and searching for clues is so much better with a community!

And I do love Actor Kim Dong Wook in The Guest. This interview is making me think that I should pick up Special Labor Inspector Jo just to watch him again. 😋

About few comments in the recaps section:
I was just thinking about this today: with the rise of the fanwall many beanies are now spazzing there instead of recaps. Not all shows are recapped, and sometimes announcements for recaps take place weeks after a show starts.

Kim Kyung-nam is another actor who had interviews for Inspector Jo Jang-poong. [OSEN, StarNews, SportsDaily, 2019.06.07] He debuted with the play "Love" in 2012, and did drama "Faith" in the same year. Since then he has been active in film and dramas and recently (in 2018) he did Come here and Hug me, and Fox Star, both of which he received the acting award for his role. In the show Jo Jang-poong,
Kim Kyung-nam, who was student of Jo Jin-gap (Kim Dong-wook) played an inquiry agency president Chun Deok-gu. He was a great assistant to Jo, showing bromance with him, and he made viewers' hearts fluttered with his romance with Mal-sook(Seol In-ah). Casts had boastful teamwork- Kim Kyung-nam said he recently went on M.T. with members, and was planning scuba diving with Kim Dong-wook. Here is Q&A session.

Q: How did you feel after the show ended?
Kim: It's been a week or so since it ended. I've been to MT this week with our team. Since we had wrap-up party and MT, now I feel it is really done. I felt so empty not seeing the people I saw daily. I always have disappointment but this was project I learned a lot so I feel good. Since my role was bigger, I felt burdened but I am thankful viewers watched favorably. It was a very good role, a role I wanted to play, and there was a lot of things to show. There was a melo, action, comedy, and bromance. I wanted to show everything, and liked it seemed to show all well.

Q: How was the atmosphere in MT(group-bonding activities)?
Kim: Actors went on 1 night 2 days trip. I suggested MT because we won't get a reward trip. It was really like college MT. I went with about 9-10 people- we played sports, games, and ate delicious things. The atmosphere was dominated by Dong-wook hyung. And among the male actors, Lee Sang-yi(played villain Chaebol son) was the youngest and he was drive force for MT. He is a very active and funny friend.

Q: This was your first lead role.
Kim: I felt so much more burdened and responsible than before. If you look at the size of the role, the frequency of the exposure increased, and since there were some parts which could hurt the drama if I didn't do well, I felt stressed. I was in the position of leading the drama along with Dong-wook hyung, and Ryu Deok-hwan hyung, so burden was huge in that part. But I felt that I just needed to focus because there were my colleagues who act together. And I felt assured because director-nim and writer-nim trusted me and cheered me on. I thought I was not alone. It is meaningful project. I could show various parts I couldn't show before, but most of all I think I remember for a long time because it was project I made with good people.

I really relied on director-nim a lot at the beginning, but he showed me 100% trust, so I believed in him and kept going. I wondered if I was doing well later and asked for advice from Dong-wook hyung and Deok-hwan hyung, and I was grateful they cheered me on saying I was doing well, which gave me strength. I was wondering whether the image shown in the first 1-4 episodes was a little artificial, but it was also the period when I got acquainted with the casts. Later I became to relax naturally like talking in everyday life. I got the courage because Dong-wook hyung said "I really feel comfortable with you guys."

Q: Kim Dong-wook said he is a very humorous person.
Kim: It was not easy to notice Dong-wook hyng's wit at first. He pursues high-class gag/joke. He demonstrates luxurious gag which you have to think a lot. I admit he is an interesting person.

Q: Chemistry of you two were good.
Kim: I love to hear that. It was the first time I met him in person. I was nervous and worried a lot if I could do well since our chemistry had to stand out. I am the type it takes time to get close, but Dong-wook hyung approached me. It wouldn't have meaning drama-wise if people couldn't see Jin-gap and Deok-gu's chemistry. It was the most important part, and hyung focused on that part, and I also tried to approach him as comfortably as possible. Dong-wook hyung took care of me like his brother, so I could film without any problem. In this project I bumped into Dong-wook hyung the most acting-wise. I was really thankful for the fate. I felt like I met the real teacher. I learned a lot from him as sunbae actor.

Q: What did you learn while you worked together?
Kim: Even though he was veteran experience-wise, he prepared acting meticulously, and in detail. He has such passion for the work that I felt ashamed to reflect on myself. He has clear sense of value for acting. He is an actor who has lot to learn from.

Q: He/KDW said he would like to receive the best couple award at the awards ceremony at the end of the year.
Kim: I'll be thankful it they give us. (Laughter) But I don't like man-man chemi much. I think it would be better to receive it with In-ah(Mal-sook). I think hyung wouldn't disappoint, but In-ah would. It was good to have bromance with Jin-gap, and romance with Mal-sook. Teacher Jin-gap also showed jealousy with "Deok-gu you look good these days" in the second half. When we filmed the date scene, hyung even envied me saying "I heard you are having fun these days."

Q: There was a lot of skinship with Seol In-ah.
Kim: There was much awkwardness in the first filming first scene, but I tried to get close to her. I got comfortable and didn't have problem filming in middle and later. I was very nervous doing the first kiss scene. After that I focused on how it could come out pretty.
Working with her was very good, I was surprised that even though the age difference between us was quite high(8 years), she was very serious and mature acting-wise, and she was very passionate. There was no problem working with her, and I even learned a lot. I thought we are in same age at first impression, because the aura she had was mature and she was very serious about acting.

Q: How was the acting breath with your GapEul planning family (his agency). They gave Oh dae-ri/Kim Se-eun, Paek Bu-jang/Yoo Soo-bin and you/Chun Deok-gu the affectionate nick "Chon Oh Baek".
Kim: I felt I had to lead well watching Dong-wook hyung on the set as the lead in the pack. I thought I had to do well with my two dongsaeng in my company team. I had lots of affection because three of us mostly filmed together. We talked even during break just like real siblings. I was happy to go to the set.

Q: You portrayed the role of president of Inquiry agency comically.
Kim: When I received the proposal, the character description and script was so much fun. I tried to stick to the script, because I could clearly see what kind of person Deok-gu was. We built the scenes in which three of us appear talking a lot, because director-nim said our chemistry was important.

Q: How did you feel playing comical role?
Kim: I tried to give up a lot. My old neighborhood friends said if I was acting too easy. They said I resembled Chun Deok-gu, watching the drama. I am not the type who shows this side of me well. It seemed that my image only shown to the people close to me melted into my character. I think I tried to show shameless or playful image. I tried to feel more at ease, so I think the side of me I didn't open to other people easily was expressed through Deok-gu. Actually I'm lacking a lot and not perfect at all.

Q: The show was a satirical comedy drama. It unraveled critical messages that pinpointed the prevalence of the current "GAPjil/power abusing culture". There were also scenes that reminded people of events that have shaken Korean society.
Kim: I had to act more carefully and deliberately as the events were based on reality. There were a lot of things satirized in small scale, and there were some events that I did not know before I read the script, so I thought I should pay more attention.

Q: There are many compliments about your appearance these days.
Kim: I've never thought about it (Laughter) There is nothing special I do about appearance management. My make-up teacher is the same. Since there was a lot of comedy parts in the show, there were many times I got messed up. I feel relieved they watched me favorably.

Q: What is the most memorable feel-good scene?
Kim: I personally think that the drama was divided into four short shows. They were divided into four plots -Oh Dae-hwan (Gu Dae-gil), Lee Sang-yi (Yang Tae-soo), Song Ok-sook (Choi Seo-ra) and Yang In-tae(Jun Gook-hwan), but I think that the scene we went to wedding and caught Sang-yi was the most satisfying. Since there were some past events directly related to Deok-gu, and it was like wrap-up for that event, it was the most memorable.

Q: You were a member of the reality hero 'Gap-vengers'.
Kim: I filmed really feeling thrilled. There was a scene the door opened as five people making an appearance grandly, and I thought it was really cool. I watched enjoying as one of viewers.

Q: If they make Season 2?
Kim: I hope all the actors join who have appeared this time. But nothing was talked about it yet. I am thankful since that means viewers enjoyed the show very much.

Q: What kind of work Jo Jang-poong would be remembered as for you?
Kim: It's the project I played the first lead role in major station, and the actors who acted together will be memorable for a long time. I feel I gained colleagues I want to act with for a long time. It was a project I learned a lot. People were gain.

Q: You took audition for Come here and hug me, but you got the call for Fox star and Jo Jang-poong.
Kim: Jo Jang-poong seems to be my life work so far. The role of Chun Deok-gu was the first lead project in major station, and it is meaningful in that respect. I got on this work based on what I learned and felt in my previous works, but I have noticed some of the things I did not know before, so I think it is very meaningful to me personally.

Q: Last year you worked really hard.
Kim: I digested movie, short plays, performance, drama, all of them. I didn't plan on doing many projects, but thankful and good opportunities showed up in succession. I hope to keep doing projects if opportunities given this year too. I don't want to take a long break.

Q: I heard PD Shin Won-ho of 'Wise Prison living' was preparing a new work.
Kim: I didn't have an offer yet. Since director-nim announced he wouldn't work with the people in Prison living in his next project, I don't feel too disappointed. But his new project seemed really fun.

Q: What is your hobby?
Kim: I don't have much. Meeting friends near my house to drink, and going to see some performances- that's all. Recent performances I watched were Chamomile and Bibim-myeon. I try to watch more since there is the play festival in June.

Q: It seems your interest in the stage performance seems to be steady.
Kim: I have a lot of affection. I think it is a part that I have to keep embracing. I try not to let go of string/connection when I take a break. I'd like to keep doing the play if I have a chance. Because working methods are different from drama or film, there is attractive area. Meeting the audience live on the field, and breathing with actors and things you can gain during the practice are different. And it is a lot of fun. This year, there is nothing planned, but it is not like I can do when I want to. I am the type who keeps telling the company I want to do when good opportunities come.

Q: You must not even have time for dating.
Kim: I want to date, but I am not the type who actively pursue to date. I just wait hoping a good person will appear. On the set, Dong-wook hyung kept teasing me trying to fix me with In-ah. I felt he was more interested in my dating than myself.

Q: Your Ideal type?
Kim: It seems to keep changing. But the thing that doesn't change is that I like a person who I can learn from. I liked such person ever since I was young.

Q: It was impressive to see your shocking expression when you received the new actor award last year.
Kim: It happened three minutes after the ceremony began. It was the first time I attended the ceremony. I thought it would have some prior stuff, but they did right after the ceremony started, so I was stunned. My family really liked it when I received the award. My sister runs a beauty shop in the neighborhood, and I heard from her customers that noona really liked it a lot.

Q: There was no family opposition to your acting?
Kim: They were worried but there was no objection. Watching me feeling happy doing the stage play before I did the broadcast/drama, they cheered me on. They supported me a lot.

Q: What was your reason when you decided to become an actor first time?
KIm: It was case that the thing I thought vaguely when I was young never changed. I thought I should be a person who appeared on the TV when I was young. Deciding on my career, I went naturally to study theater (in college) and took the actor's path learning acting with many friends.

...KKN interview continues
Q: What you think you did if you did not act?
Kim: I'd done well whatever it was. I've done a lot of part-time jobs, and I tend to enjoy whenever I work. While working I thought going into business would be nice experience. I am an avid fan of Baek Jong-won's Alley Restaurant, but I find doing business is not easy as I watch more. Now I am not so keen on it.

Q: You appeared in 'Running Man'.
Kim: I felt awkward and difficult because it was my first variety. But when can I have such an experience? I can call Yoo Jae-suk hyung as hyung. And watching people I watched in TV closely in person was so fun and amazing.

Q: Do you have greed for variety?
Kim: I feel Fear first. Since the real person Kim Kyung-nam is open to the public in variety, I feel something cautious and uneasy. It seems different from doing a drama.

Q: Is there any role you want to try next?
Kim: It is not like I want to choose certain genre and I have to do certain role, but I want to try a lot with open mind because there are more roles I haven't done. As actor's greed I want to show different image, playing diverse roles. In the second half of Jo Jang-poong, there was a scene in court (Ryu) Deok-hwan hyung argued defending his client. As I watched him in the audience, lawyer role looked cool. I want to try a professional role using technical terms.

Q: What is your goal you want to achieve as an actor?
Kim: Acting is my work. I think this work might become a bit tiring and difficult someday, but it is not yet. Even when I had hardship, I thought I had to enjoy it. It is nutrient- they were something to see the light someday. I don't think there's an end to the acting. I wonder "What kind of person I would become" when I am a middle-aged actor after acting a 10-years, 20-years. My biggest goal is to do this work for a long time, and to be able to do that I think I should not be too obvious. I want to be an actor people keep being curious about. I want people to keep watching me with a fresh and happy mind.

KKN fighting! I think he is an actor who shines as much as the lead.

It was raining almost all day - so good for the mother nature and I started to look through my patterns because I was sure I had baby booties somewhere there. Didn't find it but saw lots of interesting things, I my hedgehog eyes! So much work to do while my little one is sleeping!!! I did go to Pinterest to look for patterns and tutorials and I found other lovely ideas. So cute! There are these fish like sleeping bags, sneak head supporter for kid's head while sleeping in any seat of transportation, elephant pillows, owl door stopper, etc. So good to combine it with tutorials on youtube and life is so easy these days.

I'm not crazy about his stalkerish tendencies though. The show needs to give her some power, and he needs to keep the handcuffs away (unless she consents, of course) or I'm out. I'll give it at least one more episode because I like Jasper Liu, and Puff seems to have toned down her voice.

Just watched two episodes straight. It looks like an addictive thing to continue.

More backgrounding about Jasper Liu’s character is necessary for us to board that ship but the attraction between the leads is strong. Jasper has been too sweet for my taste and so, this is a nice change to see the tsundere in him for the first time.

for me, best thing about the week was the premiere of WWW:Search; i absolutely loved the first two episodes and can't wait to watch more of the show. Regarding, The Secret life of My Secretary, while i'm not very keen on the lead pair, the show overall is fine and i want to watch the character of Veronica Park, she is ridiculously amazing, over the top wacky, lot of fun watching her. I'm looking forward for the next episodes of Arthal.
offline, I'm decluttering 20 years of junk (physical/material hoarding), its going slow, and emotionally draining, and most of the times i just want to hide myself by watching kdramas; nevertheless, it is what it is, and i just have to finish this work effort:-) thank you for letting me share.
