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.

I was just looking for No Min Woo too. I didn't find any article stating he dropped out or whatever. Wassup Dramabeans? Find out.

I don't speak Korean, so... why's Kim Hyun-joong an unfortunate name? Is it like being an actor named Ernie?

no, it's because there is already another korean entertainer named kim hyun joong. he was originally a singer, but recently branched out into acting, and he is much much more famous than vamp hyun joong.

it's sort of like if you're an actor who is named keanu reeves (his acting range is about on par with the nonvamp kim hyun joong), but you are not the guy who did the matrix.

I am reserving judgement until I actually see it but my initial reaction was what the fudge is the world coming too. Youth Melodrama, Idols and Vampires...it just sounds...crazy.

I just finished watching the sit com. I actually love it, and it's very confused by the ending! Do you have a recap on the ending? I need someone to explain to me what's going on since i don't know Korean. I'm sure the sub miss out on stuff. Thanks!
