Lee Joon Wants To Play Even Scarier Roles

 

Lee Joon got to explore his dark side when he played the deranged barista Ryu Tae Oh in the drama "Gapdong." He was pleased when he won praise for his role but he"s not done taking scary-crazy roles just yet.

To prepare for his "GapDong" role, he said he looked at videos of dangerous mentally ill patients and then tried to copy their facial expressions.

"I practiced so I could convey "Ryu Tae Oh"s feelings with my facial expressions alone," Lee said in an interview with enewsworld. "I worked hard to relax my facial muscles and to be able to use the muscles that I"m not used to using. I tried to focus on each scene. When I was practicing, I repeated the same scene over and over again until I could express the feelings."

We Got Married (WGM) is that one TV guilty pleasure that has managed to stay afloat for many years. The show is also magnet for trouble for the cast as audiences for some reason continue to have a hard time believing the show is not real. In its latest recasting, the show has brought on BtoB’s Sungjae and Red Velvet’s Joy as one couple, and Oh Min-seok and Kang Ye-won as the other.

10 romance dramas you can revisit as a bored and broke K-Drama fan this summer
Now that school is officially out of session for most students--except for those poor souls who are stuck taking summer classes--you know what you have to do! No, not sleep in, go to the beach, or hold a grand barbecue cookout, you silly! It"s time to quench your "Hallyu thirst" with all the K-Pop comebacks of the summer and hole yourself up in your room for a long-awaited K-Drama marathon.


As someone who once was a broke student on a budget (ah, the good times when eating out at Applebee"s was an event to look forward to), I have learned to be resourceful and find ways to satiate my Korean Wave mania in the least prodigal way possible. During those destitute days when I had nary a penny to my name, I always turned to Amazon.

BIGBANG Wrapped Up in Plagiarism Speculations Concerning “Sober”

BIGBANG has been wrapped up in plagiarism speculations concerning their latest song “Sober.”

Namely, some netizens have been raising doubts about the originality of the song citing its similarity to U.K. pop band The Wanted‘s “Glad You Came,” which was released in August of 2011. There has been pushback by other netizens claiming that the two songs don’t sound similar at all.

The specific part of “Sober” that is at issue is the hook, arguably the most important part of any pop song as it’s what catches the ear of the listener. Netizens are claiming that the hook of “Sober” (1:01-1:15) sounds all too similar to the hook of “Glad You Came” (1:04-1:19).

Don't Let The Drama Title "My Beautiful Bride" Fool You

 

The title of "My Beautiful Bride" might incline a drama viewer to think that it was going to be a romantic comedy complete with sparkling engagement rings and weddings under a flowery bower.

And while there is a sparkling engagement ring, the drama is a far cry from a romantic comedy. It"s a dark, engaging thriller about a bride who disappears just after she accepts her lover"s proposal.

On the surface, Yoon Joo Young, played by Go Sung Hee, seems like the perfect woman. That"s why Kim Moo Yul"s character Kim Do Hyung proposes to her.  And he seems like Mr. Right. He is sweet, conscientious, and devoted. He has a good job at a bank.
