Rapper Beenzino appeared on the August 22 installment of KBS 2TV"s "Yoo Hee Yeol"s Sketchbook" where he was asked, "How do you get good at rapping?"




He replied wisely, "I keep trying to learn rap from somebody. However, it"s not something you can learn. If that were the case, I"d be in school. If you keep doing it while being absorbed in it, there will be a time you"ll find that you"ve improved. Then it will be good."


So any readers out there who likes to rap--just keep at it and you"ll get there in no time!

Wonny reveals music video for “None” featuring Jay Kim

Wonny reveals music video for his second single, “None” featuring Jay Kim!

"None" follows the release of Wonny’s first single earlier this summer "By Today" featuring Device Hoon also from Malhada. However, it takes on a drastically different mood from the first track.

While Jay Kim’s soulful vocals open “None” with a deeply emotional spirit, Wonny’s impressive and fluid rap builds on the heavy beats of the instrumental background.

"None," composed by Wonny, creatively uses people as props in the music video as the rapper and vocalist are the only ones to move. The video ends with Jay Kim on the floor in defeat as Wonny reaches a helping hand to her.

Take a listen to “None” and tell us what your thoughts are!

Now that the "Joseon Gunman" is close to its final episodes, it may be time to get excited about the drama that will replace it. That drama is "Iron Man" and it will star Lee Dong Wook and Shin Se Kyung.

Fans of fantasy may be more excited than most as this drama has been described as a fantasy melodrama.

In "Iron Man" the hero"s pain causes him to develop a dangerous supernatural ability. Knives actually spring out of his body, making him a lethal adversary. But when the knives retract, he is left with scars. Because of those scars, the fantasy plot seems like it will be a very moral tale about the perils of seeking revenge. The hero"s bitterness about his past and his desire for punishment cause him to become scarred, not just emotionally but physically

The ratings rose for all three Wednesday-Thursday night dramas but the order remained the same. The order is not likely to change for the few remaining episodes but they are not that far apart so anything is possible.

The KBS historical drama "The Joseon Gunman" remained in first place, rising from 11.1 percent to 11.7 percent.

The drama is gearing up for a tense finale between Park Yoon Kang, played by Lee Jun Ki, and his enemy Choi Won Shin, played by Yu Oh Sung. Swordfighter and sharpshooter Yoon Kang loses an important ally when Kanemaru, played by Otani Ryohei, makes the ultimate sacrifice to save him, and that sacrifice defines Yoon Kang"s next course of action.

Following close behind is the romantic comedy "Fated To Love You," starring Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara and Choi Jin Hyuk

Casting Drama: Should Idols Act?

Casting Drama: Should Idols Act? Written by Joyce On August 22, 2014

In recent weeks, drama land has been filled with news of idols being cast in lead roles — Sun-hwa in Rosy Lovers; Rain, Krystal and L in My Lovely Girl; Soo-young in My Spring Day. While idols venturing into the acting field is nothing new, I doubt there’s ever been such a high percentage of lead roles given to idols.

While there are a handful of idols who have successfully proven their worth in the acting world (Yoochun, Rain, Lee Seung-giLee JoonSeo In-guk, etc), it’s not surprising that most idol casting news is met with a healthy amount of skepticism and unhappiness

8 couples we want to see paired up again on-screen

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

K-dramas don’t usually do second seasons or sequels, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been some on-screen pairings that demand an encore. Here are eight couples that shared crackling chemistry the first time around, and we want to see them pair up again on the small screen. A girl can dream, right?

1. Bromance of the Century: Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin

In School 2013, Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin showed what high school friendship is all about (hint: it’s a rocky road). I’d love to see them pair up again. Whether it be love triangle, love square, love pentagram, or sibling pairing, I am sure their bromantic chemistry would again steal the show.

2. My Personal Preference: Son Ye Jin and Lee Min Ho

Personal Taste is an apt title to me, as I so enjoyed this K-drama
