Ji Jin-hee is sure a hard worker, because he still finds some time in between filming his drama to participate in a photo shoot. The male lead of SBS weekender I Have A Lover was featured in L’Officiel Hommes last month and this October, he took his good looks and charm to SURE Korea! Still as handsome as ever, no matter which magazine he’s on 😉
Four episodes into Yongpal and I really love it! It delivers in the tone, story, directing and acting- if you are thinking over whether to watch it I would strongly recommend the drama. Medical dramas may not be a popular choice among viewers, but Yongpal manages to weave in an impressive concoction touching on different areas in a medical context: the power struggle, class divide and underworld coupled with lots of action. Just like the premise, the show hints at darkness and we know that there is more to the plot than meets the eye. And you really don’t have to be a fan of the medical genre to watch it; there are great visuals, interesting characters and thrilling moments which you should see for yourself to feel that adrenaline rush 😉
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]
What’s the best cure for drama addiction? Watch another drama and continue the addiction, I’d say. Hee. I consider myself a fan of the historical drama or sageuk, and I feel like I’m deprived of a good sageuk lately. I am watching Empress Ki and loving it to bits, but the wait for the new episodes is getting unbearable. Hence, few days ago, I decided to browse through my drama folder while thinking that I would give another sageuk a try…and here I am, unable to stop watching the currently airing sageuk, King’s Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang. Somehow I regret the choice I’ve because I find myself craving for another episode after finishing one. It’s hard to stop the urge, because it’s that good!
Nothing is better than this title. Sincerely, this is the best Kdrama that I’ve ever watched. Well, maybe there’s people who won’t be on my side, but each of us have our own opinion, right? For me, I really enjoy watching 49 Days. I cried, laughed, shouted, and get angry along with the characters. Surely, I won’t forget them : the soft-hearted Han Gang, the sweet Ji-Hyun, the playful Scheduler Yi-Soo, the strong Yi-Kyung, the mean Min-Ho, and the pretty In-Jung. Also, the great writer, So Hyun-Kyung-nim and PD-nim (sorry, I forgot his name) for producing this great piece of work for all the viewers to enjoy (or maybe not all).
What I learnt from the drama: life offers so many surprises to us. At times, we may feel bad about what is happening to us, but God knows the best. Everything happens for a reason that we might not know about it, but that is all given to us by Him that knows us the best, because He is our creator.
