Kim Rae Won for Marie Claire

It is great that actor Kim Rae-won has been garnering more attention since his return to dramaland for legal thriller Punch at the end of 2014. The previous drama project he did before that was A Thousand Days’ Promise in 2011. He received a Producer Award at last year’s drama awards for his portrayal of Prosecutor Park Jung-hwan (Cheers! XD ) This year, he graced the small screen for medical romance drama Doctors – anyone misses Hong Hong Hong and his charms? After wrapping up the project, he took to LA to shoot for a feature in Marie Claire’s October issue! I am so glad he is getting featured more on the fashion magazines ❤

Second To Last Love – Midway Musings

Sometimes, we face difficulties in defining the simplest of terms because it either covers an overly broad range of areas that it is hard to pinpoint exactly what it is, or it could perhaps be due to the fact that we have never really stopped to think about what it actually means. This gives rise to different interpretations of the same term whenever we are asked.

Train to Busan: Beneath the Zombies

Happy September everyone! Let’s hope that it will be good for all of you in dramaland~ Here I’ll be welcoming the new month with my take on 부산행 (Busan-haeng), the latest zombie film that swept the box offices of its native South Korea and countries in the world!

I had the opportunity the catch this much-anticipated film at the theatres – it was like a beautiful painting with many eye-catching elements. Then you know sometimes when we appreciate such artwork for instance and become too engrossed with the prettiness on the surface, we forget that there is also much substance within. Whatever that is inside tells us what the painter wants to portray, the story as well as feelings that he wants to tell and show. That pretty much sums up my experience with Train to Busan: with the issues explored and questions posed throughout, it was definitely more than just the zombie horror.
