"Warm and Cozy" is turning out to be more than a madcap comedy about a lazy rich heir and a hardworking poor girl. The Hong Sisters comedy also offers some cooking pointers on the kind of dishes you might expect to find at the Jeju Island restaurant.
It"s important not to stop watching the drama episodes after the credits. At the end of each episode, the charming but shiftless chef Baek Gun Woo, played by Yoo Yeon Suk, describes a dish and gives you some tips on how to make it. Most of the dishes feature the fresh seafood that Jeju Island is famous for. And in each episode, the dish has played a role in the story. The first episode featured Rapeseed Flower Salad and the second episode served up some Conch Seaweed Soup. The seaweed was blanched with soju or vodka. The third episode featured Mel Noodles prepared with chopped green anchovies and carrots.
Following the release of members Daesung and Taeyang‘s solo clips, BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon and Seungri are next to display their acting chops in new scenes from the “Loser” music video.
In a clip spanning 1:32, we see the life G-Dragon leads: from the moment he steps out of his luxury car and away from the spotlight, G-Dragon emits a feeling of loneliness, watching a cartoon in his fancy hotel room alone and running aimlessly on the streets late at night. Seungri seems to be doing no better, trashing a room after experiencing heartbreak from the woman he loves.
The song features the popular rapper Beenzino who is always generous with his punchlines, and this time is no exception. The MV, with its cool blue hues, is a stark contrast to the light-hearted, carefree feel of the song. I was actually hoping to see Beenzino strut his "swag" in the video, but instead my eyes feasted upon a gender-ambiguous construction worker with lean muscles. He(?) actually turned out to be a really handsome girl. Uh...awkward.
The KARA girls are back sexier than ever!
Check out the latest MV trailer for Cupid below:
Viewers are not exactly sure how the relationship between Gong Hyo Jin and Kim Soo Hyun will shape up in "Producers." Gong plays a veteran producer and Kim plays a rookie. Her character lives with Cha Tae Hyun and despite their claim to be only lifelong friends, there"s more to their relationship. Will there be a romantic element in the onscreen relationship between the 35-year-old Gong Hyo Jin and the 27-year-old Kim Soo Hyun?
The drama is not following any tried and true k-drama formulas so anything could yet happen.
In the latest clip from Big Bang"s bonus "MADE" series, G-Dragon trashes a hotel room and walks the streets aimlessly, while Seungri gets his heart broken. Fans will get more of a look into both the idol stars" story lines from the MV.

Character development and solid plot are two of the most important aspects I look for in K-Dramas. Chemistry and the natural portrayal of said characters are also determining factors on how much I enjoy a particular show.
The variety of delicious looking food that greets my hungry eyes and grumbling belly, on the other hand? Just a total bonus! And watching the way those actors and actresses inhale such large quantities of food for show? Even better! (Just don’t try it at home, Soompiers, because I can’t even imagine the pain you’d experience if you down food a la Choi Moo Gak!)
