[Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of posts the past few months and this year especially – life happened and I haven’t made enough time to write a proper post on the blog.. I have some posts in the works but they’re still incomplete. I really miss blogging (and all of you), so I should get myself together and start posting more frequently. My sincere apologies; nevertheless I hope you all continue to stick around and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the continuous support. – Jas]
After doing Two Weeks back in 2013, Lee Jun-ki is finally back with a modern-day drama Criminal Minds, which is a remake of the US crime procedural of the same title. He’s done mostly sageuks and I cannot agree more that he looks fabulous in hanbok, but seeing him in a drama set in present day definitely excites me! Honestly speaking, I don’t have much expectations for the show but I will still check it out, for oppa (lol). Criminal Minds premieres on tvN this fall, and its cast also includes Moon Chae-won (who is also under Namoo Actors which is Lee Jun-ki’s agency as well), Son Hyun-joo, Lee Sun-bin and more. Pictures and stills of the drama’s filming have already been floating around, now I can’t wait to see their collaboration together~

Lee Jun-ki is stealing the hearts of many with his currently-airing drama Moon Lovers (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) where he stars as the 4th Prince Wang So. His performance is certainly commendable given how deftly he portrays So’s character and emotions, along with the great chemistry he has with leading lady IU, who plays Hae-soo. I am just so happy to see him on screen again after a year! XD That being said, Moon Lovers is also reaching its end quite soon and I am pretty sure that he’ll be missed. However, that is not the main point here – the actor graces the November pages of fashion magazine Singles and I love the pictorial’s simplicity! He also posted some of the pictures on his Instagram account 🙂

It’s a secret already known by most people, but if you’re being out of loop (just like me) when it comes to kdrama news these days, KBS and SBS is at it again: after pitting medical dramas against each other on the Monday-Tuesday slot, they have arranged for yet another big battle, this time with historical dramas or sageuk. Although both dramas lined for the time slot are practically fusion sageuk, it is going to be a war of genre again after Doctors and Beautiful Mind. Both Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and Moon Lovers (aka Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) boast their own strengths, and I am so eager to see how everything will turn out, not just for the sake of the ratings battle.

After last summer’s Scholar Who Walks The Night, actor Lee Jun-ki has been outside of Korea busy filming his first Hollywood movie Resident Evil: The Final Chapter which will be released early next year. He will also be starring in an upcoming sageuk, Moon Lovers which is a remake of popular Chinese drama Scarlet Heart. The story will be set in the Goryeo dynasty and is slated to air this September. Cameras are already rolling for the drama, as more kdramas are moving towards the pre-production route. This March, he is seen in the pages of Allure’s magazine issue which last featured him back in 2012. If you have been missing him like I am, check this out!

Vampire has become a trend in Kdramaland this year, with Blood and currently airing Orange Marmalade giving us a taste of the Kdrama vampires. Scholar Who Walks the Night will take the trend to fictional Joseon this July, and more news has came out as MBC prepares for the drama premiere. This is also another adaptation of manhwa of the same title so expectation is high for the series to come out well.

This is the exact face I want to do after being so busy with real life.

Eun oh is looking for Arang when Dol swe catches up to him and asks where he’s going since the funeral is still occurring. Eun oh replies he’s going back to the office and Dol swe thought they were leaving. It’s because of that woman isn’t it?! Dol swe feels betrayed that Eun oh would do so much for a woman Dol swe has not even met (haha bromantic jealousy?). He starts his interrogation, but Eun oh tells him to meet up at the office later before running off.

This drama is definitely the new definition of pretty. What’s not to love, when everything is so gorgeous? The people, the camera work, and even the clothes? What amazes me the most is the camera work, which makes everything looks like they come straight from paintings. The special effects aren’t that flashy, but I can take it since this is a fantasy themed drama. One might find the story slowing down a bit in this episode, but I enjoyed it so much because there’s a lot of things that worth the watch.
And this is the third time I’m changing the featured image. It’s hard to choose one!

So Eun Oh closes his eyes, expecting a kiss from Arang only to find out it was his imagination (ha! who called it?!) and realizes he’s going crazy. The next morning, he hands Dol Sae a letter, telling him to give it to Jun Wal. Dol Sae asks if he’s really going to be the magistrate for Milyang and Eun Oh replies he won’t be it for that long.
