Yongpal: Stills, Posters & Teasers

With a week left before Yongpal’s premiere after Mask, SBS has released promotional material featuring the two leads, Joo Won & Kim Tae Hee. I’m so excited to see Joo Won again since the last drama of his I watched was Good Doctor. In Yongpal, he stars as a doctor Kim Tae Hyun who treats patients illegally in secret. And the reason for that is: his “clients” are usually the uber rich who are unable to seek medical treatment through the proper system due to their shady dealings which most likely are clashes with the law. Like all surgeon heroes, he is talented but what sets him apart is his willingness to treat anyone as long as they have the ability to pay. In this position, he is made aware of some scandalous happenings at the chaebol households. Wow. I’m intrigued. [Updated]

Producer: Real Life Versus Reel Life

My thoughts on another drama which concluded last month- this time we got to see the “real” behind the “reel” and vice versa.

Park Seo Joon for Singles

Oh hey, what a great time to return from my holiday! Park Seo-joon keeps himself busy in between his dramas and movies with pictorials, and he brings alive the manly side of him through his latest photo shoot for the August edition Singles magazine. He is rumoured to make his drama comeback through MBC’s She Was Pretty, which will reunite him with his Kill Me, Heal Me co-star Hwang Jung-eum, if both of them accept the offer. I am happy to see more of him on my screen, although there is no rush since he won’t be leaving for army…because Park Seo-joon completed his service!
