1. Kang Joon Hee - Answer Me 1997 - Episode 10

9 Male Idols Who Starred In Some Addicting K-Dramas

We’ve been grooving here with High School, Love On. If you are not watching it, it is a fun high school romance starring Infinite members Woo Hyun and Sung Yeol. The developing onscreen bromance of the real life band members is almost as fun as the onscreen romance. It got us thinking though, what are the best drama roles from our favorite K pop stars?

1. Yong Joon Hyung of Beast in Monstar.

Alright, easy pitch right down the middle of the plate here. Monstar is the perfect high school K-drama. The bullying is mild, the stakes are real (OK real-ish. Reviving a TV show for a high school battle of the bands? Does that really happen?) but not Dramaland crazy, and, best of all, every single character is a realized person whose motivation is understandable

BEST BROMANCES
9 Bromances that tugged at our heartstrings

The bromance is just one among the large number of tropes in K-Dramas - the bond between two or more men that really helps define their characters. Sometimes, it takes a blow because of the romance, as the third member of the inevitable triangle feels resentful. Other times, it"s just a side story that"s sweet for the audience to watch. Whether the bromance is endearing or edgy and angsty, no one can deny that the bromance is an essential part of K-Dramas.

TRASH & BINGGEURE
Reply 1994

Very much big brother (Trash) and little brother (Binggeure), and complete bromance territory. They even had a kissing scene (pictured above) that, um, had an interesting off-screen story... "We got the okay on the first try," said Baro (of B1A4)

Innocent Yoo Ah In Vs. Warm Park Seo Joon: Which do you prefer?

By in News posted Oct April 22nd, 2014 No comments

Innocent but at times reckless, tough but warm, it’s all about the younger males like Yoo Ah In in JTBC’s “Secret Love Affair” and Park Seo Joon in tvN’s “Witch’s Love.”

In “Secret Love Affair,” Yoo Ah In is as innocent and real as ever. The drama plays out the love story between the classy career woman Oh Hye Won (Kim Hee Ae) and the piano prodigy Lee Sun Jae (Yoo Ah In). While they are 20 years apart, Yoo Ah In’s love for Kim Hee Ae is simple and true and breaks the older Kim Hee Ae out of the grasp of society.

Yoo Ah In’s current role is much different from his previous works such as “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” or “Tough as Iron,” where he was tough and rebellious

Everyone Wants to Wear What Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun Wear, Product Placement in Dramas

By in News posted Oct February 15th, 2014 No comments

Jun Ji Hyun gazes at the night sky, captured with the perfect camera angle against the blue-black starry canvas. In this serious atmosphere, what decidedly takes the spotlight is the trench coat that Jun Ji Hyun is wearing. Immediately following that episode of “Man From the Stars,” the various internet sites blew up with searches of “Jun Ji Hyun trench coat,” “Jun Ji Hyun fashion,” “Chun Song Yi style,” etc. This is a perfect example of sponsorship, star marketing, and product placement (PPL) in dramas.

Fashion brands directly see a positive effect from drama contents. The halo effect (a bias shown towards certain items because of a positive impression of something related) that stars have on the outfits and accessories they wear and beauty items they use in dramas, goes far above and beyond what one might imagine

One Warm Word Episode 1 Recap by Beatuscorner:


After an influx of marriage/affair/divorce dramas this year, my expectation level for SBS newest Mondays & Tuesdays drama One Warm Word (Kind Words) was extremely low. Moreover, the writer’s previous drama Can We Get Married was pretty hard to digest (for me) that I stopped watching on episode 7, it was too realistic for my liking. So I embraced the first episode of One Warm Word with extreme caution (ha!). Surprisingly, the first episode surpassed my expectations – it quickly introduced the main characters and their different perspectives (& approaches) towards marriage, divorce and affairs

Marriage angst and partner-swapping in Warm Words

By in News posted Oct November 18th, 2013 No comments

Here’s a peek at SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words, set to take over Suspicious Housekeeper’s timeslot in just a few weeks. The 20-episode melodrama is about two married couples and one affair that threatens to unravel both households. It’s purported to be Desperate Housewives-y, but the teaser seems just straight melo to me, not that the thirty-second teaser reveals much about the show other than the affair that will wring tears. It does start with an intriguing line: “I meet my husband’s lover every day…”


The drama comes from the writer of Can We Get Married and the PD of Five Fingers, and is about the two extended families that hang in the balance when a married man and woman start a dangerous love affair

ES puts her hand in his, and also brings her other hand up, cupping Tan’s, as if in a handshake. Tan realizes what she is doing at first and whispers, “Don’t do this,” but he gets louder and louder.
