Idol group BTS has released a video giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the shooting of the music video for “Danger,” the title track off of their recent full album release “Dark & Wild.”

[KDrama.com Spotlight] First Impressions – “The Three Musketeers – Drama”

By in News posted Oct August 23rd, 2014 No comments

There are only a few actors that have such mass appeal among international audiences that once their name is mentioned for a drama, everyone is prepared to subscribe. Lee Min-ho, Kim Soo-hyeon-I, and Jeong Yong-hwa are in that top, elite class (among others of course). So when Jeong Yong-hwa was announced to star in TvN"s latest drama, "The Three Musketeers - Drama", it was an automatic "must-watch".

Before I share my first impression of the drama, I must come clean about something: I"ve never read anything about the original "The Three Musketeers - Drama". In fact, I know nothing about the story except that there are, apparently, three men. If you"re in the same boat, don"t worry! You"ll still be able to enjoy the drama - and you don"t have to worry about spoiling it for yourself with knowledge of the original storyline!

Jeong Yong-hwa playes Park Dal-hyang, a seriously sheltered country boy heading to the Joseon capital, Hanyang, to take his military service exam

The boys don"t seem to have a unified theme today as some look like cowboys while others look like classy gentleman, and some just add to the confusion with a chic modern look.
