After a long wait, Yoon Si-yoon’s interview for ARENA is out, at last! Too bad the magazine only shared small-sized images for the pictorial online, and I bet that there are lots of B-cuts they did not release :3 I guess we should be thankful that even with Mirror of the Witch coming to an end last week, we still get to see him every Sunday on 2 Days 1 Night. Enjoy the interview!
To the drama in short: You will be (in) my memory.
Almost two years without him gracing our screens, Yoon Si-yoon has been making multiple strides right after completing his mandatory army service: he is currently starring in jtbc’s Mirror of the Witch and joining 2 Days 1 Night as the latest addition to the fixed cast after Kim Joo-hyuk’s departure from the variety. As his fan, I can say that my weekend has been blessed with his appearance on my screen from Friday to Sunday. He donned colourful (and sometimes questionable) clothes for Grazia and the interview has been released. Enjoy!
These set of teaser movie posters have got to be one of the finest this year, because the gorgeous colours and the eye-catching details incorporated into the posters will surely catch people’s attention. The four posters are the first promo material released for the movie Gosanja: Daedongyeojido (고산자: 대동여지도), translated as Man of the Old Mountain: The Great Map of the East Land, and they are like playing a game of Finding Cha Seung-won in the posters. Once you have recovered from the visual shock, you will realize that he is there in every poster, finding his way throughout the land of 19th century Joseon.
I did not expect to have another pictorial of Lee Je-hoon after he concluded the promotion for his latest movie Phantom Detective last month, but Singles have been so generous to court him for another photo shoot, putting him on a plane to Hawaii earlier this month, on the day of Baeksang Arts Awards. Although he did not get to walk on the red carpet or appear at the event with Signal team, at least we get this pictorial…with his slightly longer hair. Me likey.
We last saw Jung Kyung-ho as a warm-hearted man in the recent One More Happy Ending, but I already miss him! He was so adorable together with his on-screen partner Jang Nara, along with the comedic parts that made me burst out laughing😄 Thankfully, GEEK Korea gave us a pictorial of the actor this June and I am so happy that we got some eye candy❤ As we await his next project, check out the black-and-white pictorial!
I just realized that June is a month full of doctors and police, which means a lot of medical and crime cases coming to us very, very soon. Most of June dramas are premiering in the second half of the month after a lot of teasing (I’m looking at you, OCN!), with some shuffling done before the pilot episode airs in this upcoming week and the week after. So, should we take a look at them?
After Pinocchio and Doctor Stranger back in 2014, actor Lee Jong-suk is back in dramaland with another project titled W: Two Worlds where he will star alongside Han Hyo-joo, whose last drama was Dong Yi in 2010. I miss them both, so W will be on my radar😉 The upcoming drama will be about 2 characters living in very different worlds – one fantasy and one reality; W will tell the story of their romance after they cross paths in the same universe. It will only air late next month but the first teaser is already out, making us fans all excited. This month, Lee Jong-suk is seen on the cover of Céci magazine and I am blown away by the colours and visuals!
I was looking for Han Joo-wan’s latest project yesterday when I stumbled upon a web drama he starred in earlier in February, entitled Devil’s Diary. Web drama tend to be misses for me because I often lose interest in the middle of the series (despite the bite-size episodes) but I think I am lucky to discover this one, because it is just a four-part drama, 15 minutes each. Hence, I decided to spend less than one hour for Devil’s Diary and it was such a cute, cute show.
As the plot goes deeper and we get nearer to the center of everything, Mirror of the Witch has reached its halfway mark in what feels like a blink of an eye. The story is easy to follow but I can see why the opinions are divided for the drama: it’s either exciting or boring, not in between. For me, the joy of watching this little fairy tale is in watching the characters grow (albeit not in the fastest rate), finding solace and support in each other. But that does not mean the baddies are doing nothing; they are lurking from every corners and holes, prying for their targets and goals.
