It’s hard to believe that Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love has ended. To be honest, I was contemplating on whether to continue the journey with the conflicts that started to rear their ugly heads when Ok-jung decided to pursue her love, but I hesitated. I loved the first 9 episodes too much to let it go just like that and I decided to follow the drama as an outsider. I read the recaps and the forums, witnessing how people were reacting to the episodes with each week passed by in the blink of an eye and getting the gist of the story from my friend, who is also a loyal fan of the drama. I thought I would be able to bid goodbye to the drama coolly, but I found myself sobbing like a baby after I finished watching the last episode live. I think Jang Ok Jung, Live in Love is like an unrequited first love to me: you thought you can forget it, but there’s a part of you that will be attached to it.
I’ve been trying to find a good title that can be at the same level as Queen Inhyun’s Man, but this is the best I can come up with. I suddenly became interested in Jang Ok-jung: Live in Love after Hong Soo-hyun joined the cast. I was keeping my excitement low for the time being, but the press conference yesterday did it all for me, leaving me craving and waiting like crazy for next Monday. All I can do right now is praying for the drama to turn out really, really good and become my first sageuk fix of the year.
Adorable. That’s what I thought of these celebrities all in their hanbok for Lunar New year greetings. The pictures were released by sidusHQ, featuring the celebrities under the company all smiling and looking happy for the pictorial. I’m still waiting for other actors and actresses from other companies for their pictures to be released but maybe they’re just too busy with filming and such. Anyhow, enjoy the beauty of both the people and the hanbok itself!
With Bridal Mask coming to its end this week (and technically today), Nice Guy’s premiere is fast approaching us. Yesterday, the press conference for the drama was held and everyone came wearing black. Maybe it’s to show the concept of the drama itself: dark. This is a melodrama about revenge, after all.
It’s nice to see them all smiling brightly, as it would be almost impossible to see them smiling so frequently in this drama.
A long official title for the comeback drama of Song Joong-Ki, also known as Nice Guy or Innocent Man. Finally…seeing him in a drama is like a dream come true for me. But this one isn’t full of fluff or cuteness like a rom-com drama; Nice Guy is a pure melodrama, centered around a man who’s out for a revenge after his life was destroyed by his ex-girlfriend. Some might have doubts whether Joong-Ki can pull off a cold, evil role like this…but if you’ve seen him in Tree with Deep Roots, you’ll know it’s possible for him to get into the character as a cold playboy Kang Maru.
