K-Drama Disc Jockeys

By in News posted Oct August 6th, 2014 No comments

 

In the last year several highly desirable k-drama characters have been at least part-time disc jockeys.

Sung Joon played Joo Won a.k.a. Allen Joo, a 20-something celebrity disc jockey and songwriter in "I Need Romance 3." His character is a global star, playing at nightclubs and producing records in the U.S. He is a highly sought after disc jockey when he returns to Korea.

Of course the heroine, played by Kim So Yeon, falls for his musical skills before she realizes that they were children together and they already know each other.

And now Choi Jin Hyuk is in a drama that also affords him a turn as a DJ. He plays Daniel an industrial designer superstar, who just happens to be an ace disc jockey on the side. When he spins records in "Fated To Love You," he dresses the part, wearing a superstar gold leather jacket that gilds his undeniable charms

Which Dramas Ranked Highest In China?

By in News posted Oct August 6th, 2014 No comments

 

As the Hallyu attracts more attention around the world, k-dramas no longer just get real-time rankings in the Korean ratings. For example, in China, where dramas air at or around the same time as they do in Korea, k-dramas are also ranked in terms of ratings.

Who ranked high in China this week? That depends on which reporting source you ask. But the results are pretty similar to the domestic ones, with some argument about which drama came in first or second place.

According to one source, the Wednesday-Thursday drama "It"s Okay It"s Love" is the most popular Korean drama on the Chinese video portals Todou and Youku.

The story of a mystery novelist and a psychiatrist, who each have mental health issues to contend with, has aired at the same time in Korea and China since July 23

Notes on a Scandal: What Can SM Entertainment Learn from 2014?

Notes on a Scandal: What Can SM Entertainment Learn from 2014? Written by Kelsey On July 30, 2014

All is not well in the house of SM Entertainment. To be fair, 2014 thus far has given us a host of scandals across the entertainment companies, but SM has had more than a full plate of controversies, most of which have been handled really, really poorly.

I’m sure the big wigs in the management offices have asked each other the question we’re mulling over now: how can so many things go wrong in a such a short time period?

Over the course of just seven months, SM Entertainment has lost grip of the strict, faithful schedules and procedures by which they have always done their business.

These scandals give the public even more reasons to hold SM accountable for their actions, and if there’s anything that the Great Scandal Season of ’14 has offered, it’s that SM is fundamentally failing at managing their idols
