The Fairy and the Woodcutter: tragic love, Korean-syle

By in News posted Oct July 27th, 2014 No comments

The Fairy and the Woodcutter is one of the most popular of all Korean folktales. Almost all children in Korea grow up reading a version of this love story. The story has three well-known versions that differ mainly in plot length. The following is a synopsis of the full version of the folktale. There once was a poor woodcutter who lived with his mother. One day, he helped a wounded deer escape from hunters. As a show of gratitude, the deer informed the woodcutter of a nearby pond where fairies came down from the heavens to bathe every month. The deer pointed out that the woodcutter would be able to marry one of the fairies by hiding the fairy"s winged clothing-her only means of flight. He could then come to the rescue of the stranded fairy. The only proviso: everything was to be kept secret from his wife until they had at least three children

'Joseon Shooter' Lee Joon Ki Strategic And Acting Perfectly

By in News posted Oct July 27th, 2014 No comments

"The Joseon Shooter" Lee Joon Ki"s strategy shone.

On the 9th episode of KBS 2TV Wednesday/Thursday drama "Joseon Shooter" (script Lee Jung Woo, Han Hee Jung, director Kim Jung Min, Cha Young Hoon) broadcast on July 23rd, Lee Joon Ki perfectly lied to Yoo Oh Sung who was suspicious of him. Lee Joon Ki and Yoo Oh Sung were together and at that time, Sang Choo had transformed into a shooter and created an alibi for Lee Joon Ki.

In the relevant scene, Lee Joon Ki started to feel a bit shy and lacking confidence in front of Yoo Oh Sung. He saw all sorts of circumstances and made this twist into a way that was more favorable to him. As Yoo Oh Sung captured the screen with his glare and expression, Lee Joon Ki"s strong charisma added to the vibe of the drama.


Lee Joon Ki is continuing to draw out great reviews of action, romance, and strategy, as he perfects his acting and body movements

Block B Gets Wild ’n’ Crazy for “Her” Written by Camiele On July 26, 2014

Just as the summer is reaching its peak, we get an onslaught of sugary sweet K-pop titles all vying for a coveted spot in your iPod’s Summer Jams playlist. Among the fray we get a tasty bit of wild ’n’ crazy from Block B with their latest release “H.E.R.”

Before we get started I just have to make it known. I’ve never really listened to Block B, and I’ve not exactly been particularly interested in them. After watching this video I’m wondering what the hell I was so hesitant about! These cats are nothing if not absolutely friggin’ crazy, out of their mind and talented in a way that should have many of the most popular idol oppas feel a bit intimidated. “H.E.R” is one of those songs you put on, and before you realize what’s happening, you’re hanging from the chandelier, bouncing off the walls, reaching for another tumbler full of Fun Dip

Some “Power bloggers” are paid for their opinions

By in News posted Oct July 26th, 2014 No comments

Searching the web is something college student Ahn Ji-eun takes seriously.

Like countless Koreans, the 23-year-old searches the web to find recommendations on places to go for coffee or for a meal.But as a canny netizen of a highly wired society, Ahn avoids falling into the trap of advice from paid bloggers.Her number one tip is to avoid using matjip as a keyword in a search. "You should never type the word matjip", says Ahn. "Never".Matjip roughly translates to good eatery or delicious restaurant in Korean. Ahn is well aware that matjip is used by paid bloggers on the Web and lost its credibility years ago. Instead, she types in ordinary keywords like "lunch at Hongik University" or "lunch with oppa". Oppa literally refers to an older brother but it is also used to address one"s boyfriend. She scrupulously avoids postings of so-called power bloggers, influential bloggers who have hundreds and thousands of visitors per day
