No bad intention, but why?

I've seen him in 3 projects: From Another Starter, All Surrounded, and Cinderella. I don't mind him but he doesn't make my dream casting.

I'd love to hear from his fans. So I can justify my Pinterest board for him. *What?!*

I seem to be stuck in Hyun Bin land after going to see his and Yoo Hae Jin's buddy cop movie Gongjo/Confidential Assignment. I just finished watching Secret Garden again and now I'm trying to get through Hyde Jekyll Me after originally dropping it around ep 4 back when it was airing. I made it to around ep 13 this time. I think the problem is mainly the writing and not the acting, but anyway we'll see if Hyun Bin acting cute is enough to get me to ep 20 lol

Oh really? In that case I will stick it out until the end since I've already come this far!

I was lucky enough to watch it in the theatre - we are starting to get most of the blockbusters in our city about a month after the Korean release. It just came out Jan 18th so it may not be up yet, but myasiantv will probably have it eventually if you don't alr check there. If you don't want to wait, look up 공조 on youtube and there are quite a few videos with extended scenes and previews. There are some interviews on vlive/v app as well including a 30 min interview with Hyun Bin where he talked quite a bit about how filming went for him, how he prepared, his character etc.

I noticed his looks due to his lack of dialogue at the beginning of White Christmas. When he started to speak it was all about his voice.

It's not often anymore, but it used to take me forever to watch an episode with him.

2 watch - for his looks
3 watch - for all

I like these random questions :)

Lee Jong Suk - liked him since SG and he's got the acting chops to back it up

Lee Sung Kyung - liked her since IOIL, she's got a really cool aura

Nam Joo Hyuk - definitely from WFKBJ

Lee Soo Hyuk - so beautiful, but really wish he got better roles because didn't really like any of them so far

Sung Joon - in small, random doses like in INR3 but since then, there hasn't been much that's caught my attention

Ahn Jae Hyun - in C4K and MLFAS but I've not seen him in anything else (probs for the better)

Cha Seung Won - but he's basically just seen as an actor now, he's so cool haha

I also like quite a few of the YG Models in the webdrama We Broke Up - I think the dude's name was Chang Gi Yong?

Something makes me feel like Soo Hyuk & Joo Hwan are on the same wavelength as Kang Ha Neul. They want roles the interest them, challenge them, complex roles. These roles usually show us their ability. But that's all they want.

It's just a semi-theory based on throw away interview answers. I just feel that it's not so much the roles aren't for them as much as they don't want the roles. Just my opinion of course.

LSH should lead a Web drama like HJH did.

Happy Friday all!

Am currently waiting for Strong Woman DBS new subbed episodes - it made my weekend morning brighter.

My favorite female actreeses in dramaland are Park Bo Young, Kim Seul Gi, Kim Ji Won, Seo Hyun Jin, and Lee Sung Kyun.

Am so glad that they will all be back on small screen soon (or is currently on like PBY)! Except for SHJ but she's highly sought now so I am sure she will be back soon.

Now I just hope this will be the year that Kim Seul Gi would score as lead in a full drama. I am assuming she's popular enough that she is billed as cameo when she appears in other dramas in 2016 (Weightlifting KBJ, Legend of the Sea) instead of just regular supporting actreess - or do I interpret the word 'cameo' differently to what it's supposed to be in Korea?

It's about time she gets acknowledge for her talent, she has great screen presence, sizzling chemistry with all of her partner, and she's funny as hell. Obviously, Yoon Do Joon or Kang Ha Neul would be the ultimate dream OTP but that would be requesting too much from dramagod ?

I think of cameo as less than regular supporting character. Cameos are usually short bursts of screen time, 2 seconds to 20 minutes, but only in 1-3 episodes. Supporting characters are usually throughout the drama, little siblings, parents, exes and such.

Oh, a pairing Kang Haneul-Kim Seul-gi would be heaven on earth. They did an episode of Happy Together where she kinda admitted she'd love to work with him and he seems totally enchanted by her presence. They don't even have to be a romantic couple, they can be a hapless duo of curmudgeons going out on a limb to fight crime and I will be happy.

Come on, dramagods, make it happen! I will totally sacrifice the annoying mosquito in my bedroom in your honor if you do this.

But wouldn't she be moving up? Maybe she is getting expensive with her rates and that's why she is being offered cameos? I mean, wasn't she kinda a second-lead in Oh My Ghostess? I sure hope so. I'd love to see her in a leading role.

Its about time Seulgi score a lead in a longer drama. And before that Happy Together episode, I only wanted to see her pair up with Yoon DooJoon but now, I'd like a pairing with Kang Haneul too.

I'm currently watching her 3-4 episode Queen of the Ring. and re watching SSL, Seulgi needs to be in longer dramas

I have been saving some money to buy a serum I have been wanting it for weeks. The brand itself is well-known and I've used some of their products and they are great. Then I bought it and instead of hydrating it turned out to dry my skin even more! How awful.. so I searched the internet and concluded that it was hyaluronic acid which is a possible culprit. Huff.. sadly, it seems like I'm one of a few who HA turns out to dry out my skin.

My apologies if this sounds like a complaint.. but yeahh.. that was the most unexpected thing which happended to me this past week.

With HA you have to make sure you apply on damp skin and apply a moisturizing product on top. Or you can mix it in with a moisturizer.

Oh thanks a lot for your suggestion. I suddenly realized that I used my toner which really dried my skin before using the serum with HA. Perhaps that's the reason behind all these messes. I'll try again today, perhaps tomorrow to see if applying it the way you suggested really helps. If it still does not, guess that's my skin problem and I might resort to other things. Perhaps First Aid Beauty as @harmonyfb suggested. If I can find that in my country ofc ;)

reply

afaik HA only works in humid environments since it draws water from the air to your skin. if the air is too dry however, it would draw water from your skin outside instead.. i think in dry climates, oils which will prevent moisture from escaping your skin would be better

@ Hyades @siesta

Thanks to all the dermatologist beanies :) Your suggestions are much appreciated. My first solution would be to try every way possible to make this thing work since I feel pitiful for the money I spent, and don't wanna use any more of it so soon. Last night was ok: I applied the serum when my face was very damp. Then I sealed it with another moisterizer.

If it made your face breakout or seriously chapped it, you could also try taking it back - some places will refund your money if the product irritates your skin.

A guy who I met in the school cafeteria a few days ago (and who seemed perfectly normal) sat down next to me today and started talking to me about the occult.

Not that there is anything wrong with believing in the supernatural... but it was weird. It was very sudden and he told me about a time his aunt was walking in a city in Bosnia clutching a rosary when a demon approached her. And then spent a good 15 minutes showing me this website about real supernatural findings.

Okay, dude.

Yeah, I must have read your of your rants :P I got curious and went to watch the ending. I had dropped this show two weeks ago.

The only sense I can make out of it is that the ending doesn't belong to the story. I guess the real ending was left to the audience to infer from the 'last scene' and the ending which infuriate so many viewers was actually just a kind of good bye from the cast to the viewers. If it was the real ending then the thing Missing was Sanity.

Thank you for mentioning this. Saves us from waiting for the recap to come out, and lets us vent while the steam is still coming out of our ears.

The most charitable explanation I can think of is that the final scene was actually the wrap party - perhaps all the wrap party they could afford with those ratings ? :)

Otherwise no way Tae-ho would be there, acting like that, and the others would be treating him like that.

Or, just how hallucinogenic were those mushrooms they were eating on the island ??

Too bad, I liked most of the rest of the show.

I wouldn't celebrate with a serial killer happily that way, Soo Hee's brother was also playing with him, the cast must be disappointed as we are in this ending, even Tae Ho surprised how the writer forgave him and let him celebrate with everyone, he can't believe himself he had a shy smile the whole party.

I guess Murakami's books and Art-house movie fan is speaking in me but I actually liked this surrealistic ending.
It gave us some real ending (court decision) and the other about how they felt and where they stand now. It also answered the question about color mystery.
When I watched it I actually cried because it was so beautiful and perfect, my friend had the same reaction, as I can see everyone else hated it so you have to check for yourself

1. Though I am aware of the different controversies that surrounded CITT, I still ended up watching it because of the amazing reviews it got for the drama's first half and because I am a fan of Kim Go Eun. I must say that what I basically did was still having faith in the drama even though I know that it will just a heartache in the end like true kdrama masochist. Haha.

2 While watching CITT, I kept thinking that either Kim Shin or Grim Reaper would suddenly appear and check on Hong Seol because maybe she's just one of Eun Tak's reincarnations hahahaha.

2. I kept seeing Yook SungJae in Seo Kang Joon's face and voice. Am I the only one seeing that haha. I think they have a lot of similarities aside from being great actors!

3. I am currently loving Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun's chemistry in CITT so much that I want them to star in a new drama together despite all the issues that surrounded them.

While watching Entourage, I noticed that Seo Kang Joon looks similar to Takeshi Kaneshiro from the side.

Kaneshiro was my crush in high school, I wonder what is he up to lately, I haven't watched any Japanese drama sice BOF.

Aaah the Mao-Jun chemistry was so palpable <3 I still remember my own kokoro breaking during that "I never thought I'd hear your voice here again" phone call scene in season two *cries in Nihonggo

Maybe i am in the minority who didn't care about the piano taking over the main OTP despite not being a fan of SKJ but I kept enjoying the show, what I didn't like the last 2 episode there was unnecessary stuff happened in my opinion that doesn't add much to the main plot but ruins it instead.

I totally agree with your 1st and 3rd points! (I haven't watched Goblin yet, so I can't agree with point #2 just yet.)

I must be of the small minority that still enjoyed CITT till the end. I think dating a guy like the one Park Hae Jin played would be pretty difficult, and so a break from him would be kinda realistic?

I also kinda find the ending realistic and it is just the romantic in ne that wants to see them together ib the end but nonetheless CITT was refreshingly original and beautiful. :)

Currently watching CIIT too! Despite all the rants about the ending. I'm currently loving Inho, which is a surprise because I almost never go for the "second leads" at all. Maybe it's the eyes. Hmm.

Also Yoo Jung's got to be the most mysterious character I've seen in dramaland in a while.

not that kdrama aren't moving forward but sometimes I feel like I want more in a drama.it can be few episode dramas, not always long. sometimes I found some dramas really lacking, some are repeated but different names, some lack themes, while some are out of point depending on the theme. Though I love watching them but sometimes the thrill is not there I just watch. like I said b/4 I found my self wanting more.

Ahhhh kdrama slump. I've been there before and what I did was watch kbs drama specials. They are short, from 1 episode to about 4. They are quite good and if you chance to find a not-so good one, it's not regretful because you only spent an hour for it. Have you seen Flowers for My Life? It's a 2007 drama that starred Cha Taehyun and Kang Hyejung. That's the drama that finall got me out of my slump. :)

When i feel like this i switch to japanese or English language dramas for a while. Japanese dramas can have a similar but totally different feel. Like, often thematically similar but w different execution that often suits me better. Manga based stories can be really different and fun to watch for me if I'm sick of the korean romance formula for a while

Chief Kim : My baby Myung Seok is surely growing up in Chief Kim this week's episodes. Hopefully this actor will become bigger actor, he is good in comedic roles.

Saimdang : I am at epi 5, I am way behind. lol. I am more interested with Yang Se Jong. Good for him turned down Bride of Water God, after started his career with two drama with reputable veterans, he should pursuing his career with great drama ahead. Saimdang is not doing great in rating, but he got to act with Lee Young Ae though.

You're Too Much : Saw the first two episodes, it was OK so far. Story is not engaging yet. Gu Hye Sun is doing OK, as long as she doesn't become 'Geum Jan Di' I think it will be OK.

hi sera!

lets share our dramas stories this week! and Hi lovely TGIF beanies !

What I watched :

THE KING MOVIE (Jung woo sung,Jo In Sunga
Okay, this movie is good in oddest way! Tbh, I can rated this 8 out 10, but the plate itself not perfect nor delicious as fq. I got L-Dcaprio's feeling from his Wolf of Wall Street, at very strong, seriously. The way this movie take POV from ultimate hero,the slow-mo & wildness party & the riches niche world shove to us how the upper class play, the inner hero voice, the downfall, the tiger's wife. Who's with me ??

MASTER MOVIE (lee byung hun, kim woo bin, kang dong won)
2 movies in a row? yeah why not! I pushed my patients all in noon, I watched all night n wake up in panda.
This is awesome! I love lee byung hun, but he doesn't share to many screns, for me Kim Woo Bin again, steal the shine with his very personal humour he always injects, but this time, hits all the right note. And Kang Dong Won, oh my dramagod, now I knw why you are the claimd-King of pretty boys back to wed, damnyun!!

JEALOUSY INCARNATE
I love love super love!! I pushed this dramas all the way when i tot my love for Gong hyo Jin has dried up, but is not! Even all her drama all bad (IF), i'd still love her fashion to death! Forgive me. She's seriously the most fashionista of all A-LISTER K-Actress along with JJH, but her fashion sense is chic ready to wear laid back hipster very subculture inspired/ LA-Hongdae mixture.

oh I forgot the drama, haha, I stop at ep12, since at ep14 GH & the hero will kiss rite? and I read recaps first, and no no to aldutery. Omg please find me a reason to continue since i love this show.
a lot of comments said she & second lead not have a exclusive relationsip yet, excuse me? in back ep, GHJ said to JJS she HAS A BOYFRIEND. it means seal the deal. They're not in dating stage. And, it means Cheating, with big C.

EMPIRE OF GOLD
Still new, at ep 6.
I wonder is this worth my time to the end?? I kinda tired but interested in this cooperate fight ride to hell they all riding, but is this keep continuing w/o another plot drive?

another suggets if any of these dramas are good :
HEARTLESS CITY
INTROVERT BOSS
VOICE
MR. BACK................anyone watched this? I came across this dramas & how can I resist the cast??
MISSING NOIR M........kang hae neul as what in this? the only important point

I LOVE Jealousy Incarnate, I can watch Jo Jung Suk doing anything and I'd still have a smile on my face.

I wasn't disappointed about what happened in episode 14 (maybe because I was always on Lee Hwa Shin's ship) and tbh to me, the draggy and disappointing parts are towards the end when the noble-idiocy plot kicked in. I won't spoil it but know that it doesnt take too long (thank God!).

This week, I am still watching Entourage with the hubby because he seemed to enjoy it. If it's just me solo-watching, I would have dropped it few episodes ago. Up until episode 6, none of the characters are likable. Young Bin is so unprofessional, childish, and selfish. Not to mention SKJ doesn't amp up any charisma and I just cannot buy him as big star. The only positive thing is Jo Jin Woong, when the episode focuses on his issue (like in episode 6 with his daughter and bf), the episode immediately becomes 5x more interesting. The ultimate problem with this series is definitely the writing, but the actors (excluding 1 or 2 in the group) doesn't help in elevating the material. Now I get why the rating is low.

Also marathoning Voice. It started good and clever but then plot holes keep appearing one after another, which I assume is because of live shooting. Otherwise why would they need to show Jang Hyuk fighting with the southeast asian assasin for half an episode, other than for filler purposes? And am I the only one who was irked by how they all can tell that he comes from Southeast Asian? Even the nurse who prob only saw him for one second. I want to say this is mild racism but then we are all Asian so I don't know what to call this. I am from SEA and he looks 100% Korean with a little bit of tanned make up. If I would have to call someone who looks SEA that would be someone like Ha Suk Jin (perhaps because of his round double lidded eye and angular jaw), but I don't go around saying he's different. It's just such a shallow thing to do.
I am still watching for the weekly case and Kim Jae Wook - he's a hottie but mostly I am intrigued by his character, like why does he turned to be so effed up? I hope the writer already has this back story in hand from the start instead of winging it because otherwise I will feel so cheated, I mean he's the ultimate baddie of the series after all.

re: the long fight scene. I am not going to generalize that all men like such scenes, but many do and I always think these kind of shows have a certain # of men watching along with the gals. At least they have an actor who obviously is good at these scenes and they want to show it off.

I will watch The King this weekend.

About JI : Actually this show kind frustrating. I skipped few episodes in the middle and picked up it back around the last 6 episodes. I only read recap for the episodes I skipped. Hehe. If no GHJ and JJS in this drama, for sure I will stop watch.

EOG is worth for your time if you like serious drama, with corporate fights and no romance. This together with other drama from the same writer are all my favourite.

Based on your suggestoon list, Heatless City is a good drama. Not started on Voice yet, but reviews said it is a great drama too. Introvert Boss - not something really good but not something bad as well But it has content to watch and not just a nonsense..

I wont spoil anything, Thank God I didn't at first plc as well, only thing is be careful of Jung Woo Sung. His face and smooth hair up is deathly lethal

One question abt EOG,
the drama itself is setting in 1990 ish? or am I wrong? I kinda confused tho, n somehow after a long fight scene, there is chiil, and it sets up like there is time jump after last frame, but there is no explanation at all.

N, did Sung Jin's household know Sung Jae is not their blood-related siblings?
I watched in half raw so somepart I don't understand.

I decided not to go see The King bc i wasn't that interested in the subject matter but i really recommend all the promo interviews, the actors have ridiculous chemistry. I thought i was watching a variety show lol

I really liked Master too. I loved Kim Woo Bin in Twenty but i think he improved comedy-wise in this one. I'll definitely watch it again at some point

HEARTLESS CITY--great
INTROVERT BOSS--soso
VOICE--I dropped, not my kind
MISSING NOIR M--good

chanelboy -

Empire of Gold is fantastic. It's interesting in that all the corporate maneuvering and countermoves are revealed through the dialogue and tea-drinking sessions.

Regarding Mr. Back, it includes a good cast, but I have to say that this may be one of the worst-edited dramas I've ever watched. It was absolutely horrible in that respect unfortunately.

@chanelboy--

I've noticed Gong Hyo Jin always dresses similarly quirkily in most of her dramas.. Could it be that she gets to pick her own outfits? I thought that all the actors and actresses were styled, and so I wasn't inclined to credit or discredit them when they looked good/bad. Unless they bring their own stylists to different projects, so they end up looking similar??
