I’ve been wanting to watch this cdrama for a while now, but I finally pushed it up the list and finished it 🙂 Jin Dong, together with a whole group of experienced casts, what’s not to love? And I must say that I’m sooo glad I placed my priorities well – frankly I didn’t expect myself to like it, but the moment you get into it you kind of see the thought they put into producing this through the scenes, lines and lyrics. Overall, I feel that a group of inexperienced actors wouldn’t have been able to pull this off; kudos to the casting director for this because they are just so good. Wow. All of them gave impressive performances which made them feel like real human beings and not mere characters.
Happy new year everyone! Actors Ji Jin-hee and Jung Woo-sung are featured on Esquire Korea’s January issue – it has been a while since I shared pictorial(s) here so I picked this one 🙂 Since it’s for the same magazine, I decided to compile the two separate pictorials into one. Jung Woo-sung continues to be active in chungmuro, whereas Ji Jin-hee is coming back this year with jtbc drama Misty alongside Kim Nam-joo. It airs on 2nd February, which is quite soon. (Yay! This will be his comeback since Second to Last Love in 2016.)
I know, there is literally only 3 months left to 2017 – at this point a post for 2016 seems pointless, hah. As unbelievable as it sounds, this post has been in the works for the longest time, just that it never made its way to the ‘publish’ mode. I was actually contemplating to forget about it for good, but in the end I decided to put it up regardless of how late it turns out (I apologize).
I always say that time flies, but… how is it already September?! Despite me still trying to grasp its arrival, I realise that it’s almost the end of another year once again. Admittedly, I haven’t been on task with watching kdramas lately (the newest one I’m currently following though is Live Up to Your Name). Prior to this I caught Secret Forest (aka Stranger) and I am glad to report that I wasn’t disappointed – it had everything I just needed in a drama. Not everything needs to be dramatic and real happening; mere, small moments if enacted sufficiently well are enough to impact viewers. Every week, I found myself looking forward to watch it and at the end there was a point I actually felt that we got there so quick, hah. From the news release about the drama to the anticipation (it was Jo Seung-woo’s and Bae Doo-na’s dramaland comeback after 3 and 7 years respectively) all the way until it finished its run, it was actually months long. But oh boy, how hard the withdrawals hit.
