Four episodes into the series, One More Happy Ending (also known as Happy Ending Once Again) is slowly making its way into my heart, and I can’t put into words how much I enjoy every single episode so far! I have noticed that the featured songs are always spot on with both characters and scenes, so I am trying to put all of them in a single list. If you happen to know any of the songs which I have yet to add here, I will be happy to include them in the post! ^^
Last weekend, I had a sudden urge to check out Youth Over Flowers in Iceland despite the lack of subs online, and it has to be one of the best choices I have ever made this year because I found a new appreciation on the guys: musical actor Jung Sang-hoon, actor Jung Woo (aka Trash Oppa-ya), actor Jo Jung-seok (aka Shep!) and last but not least, Kang Ha-neul as the maknae of the quartet. I have lots of things to say about the show but let’s save that for another post because this week’s Magazine Monday star is Kang Ha-neul, because I know lots of people are going to like this!
After so much injustice, we gain some satisfaction in Jin-woo’s quest to make sure justice is served for Dad. However, the Big Bad still remains as powerful as ever with no hint of falling as of yet. It’s still a race against time as the lawyer faces his personal obstacle, unbeknownst to others.
The star for the week is actor Park Hae-jin, who plays Yoo Jung in the Mon-Tue cable drama Cheese In The Trap. The television ratings have been hitting new peaks every week, which is great for the production team and cast! It’s even better to know that filming for the drama is completed; the cast even had a wrap-up party! I haven’t started watching the drama yet, but I definitely hope to strike it off my to-watch list soon ;) Check out the various pictorials he has had, classified into 3 segments <3
After his drama Pinocchio alongside Park Shin-hye, actor Lee Jong-suk took a break from the screens and this year, we finally get to see him on the cover of HIGH CUT Volume 166! In an interview with the magazine, the model-turned-actor said that he promised himself that he would act in at least three projects this year. Who is looking forward to his dramaland comeback like me? ;) I last watched him in Doctor Stranger; Pinocchio has been on my to-watch list for a while now, I’ll have to make time for it!
Here’s another dragon featured on this week’s Magazine Monday: Shin Se-kyung is the only female lead among the five males in Six Flying Dragons, and I am glad that she does not get overshadowed by the other characters in the series. Boon-yi is shining brightly in her own way, and I think Shin Se-kyung does fare better in lighter rom-coms (for instance The Girl Who Sees Smells) and sageuk compared to melodramas. Now that I think of it, it has been more than 11 years since the first time I saw her in the movie My Little Bride as Moon Geun-young’s best friend!
After starring as Ha No-ra in hit cable drama Twenty Again, actress Choi Ji-woo has reached another peak in her career following the widely popular melodrama Stairway To Heaven back in 2003. The tvN drama garnered high ratings and much positive feedback throughout its run. In the recent years, she has also made guest appearances on variety programs Three Meals A Day and Grandpas Over Flowers. This time, we get to see her featured on GQ magazine in black and white. The monochrome shades show her distinct features; she’s one gorgeous lady! <3
The story development in Episodes 7 & 8 was not out of my expectation but Remember still managed to deliver two hours of certain intensity, tugging at the heartstrings at times. Jin-woo falls further behind in his quest to save Dad but as they say, “You win some, you lose some.” And the people around him begin to get more involved after becoming more aware of the battle he’s really facing.
As for the latest week, it’s when I feel really sad for the protagonist and those on his side. Though some intentions are made clearer, there’s so much heartbreak ㅠㅠ It’s also the two episodes where it’s hard to tell what will happen next and I think that this is certainly a good thing plot wise. It’s no fun without the thrill or suspense, right?
These two names are probably more familiar in movieland than in dramas, but the two actors are going to appear on the small screen with upcoming cable drama Signal on tvN! Given the stellar cast, it’s like we’re in for a movie ;) The hype has been around since forever, and the show’s premise sounds very intriguing. They have been featured on the January issue of Vogue and the background of the pictures have Signal’s synopsis as their theme with radios, an hourglass as well as other communication devices. Both Lee Je-hoon and Jo Jin-woong look so fine in leather jackets, coats and suits <3 What a delight to see them in a pictorial together!
Park Min-young first caught my attention when she starred in fusion sageuk Sungkyunkwan Scandal back in 2010; the series gained many fans’ support despite mediocre ratings. She quickly followed up this success with manga adaptation drama City Hunter in the following year alongside Lee Min-ho. Recently, she made her mark again with action thriller Healer and had a love line with Ji Chang-wook’s character as the titular hero. Now, she’s back with another drama Remember: Son’s War and plays rookie prosecutor Lee In-ah. I like how In-ah has a mind of her own and does not give in to pressure. It’s heartening to see that the show’s ratings are steadily on the rise! The actress has had some pictorials over the years, and I’ll be waiting for the magazines to feature her this year! If you’re wondering why the male cast of Remember are not featured this week, no worries because it’s coming soon ;)
