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

This week, wuri Rinchan is taking two important finals so I’ll be recapping alone. I’m sure we all agree that school is more important so let’s cheer her on! As I’ve said, I’ve been watching this drama since the beginning but I think this week was the best so far. Maybe because the good guys are finally taking baby steps towards exterminating the evil? I’ve been wanting for a long time so I’m excited.

Age of Feeling: Episode 12 recap by Dramabeans

Doctor Jung and Ok-ryun get an unexpected delivery to the clinic in the form of Daddy Shin’s body, brought there by Jae-hwa’s men.

But it seems like they may not be the only ones behind the body switch, since Jung-tae heeds So-so’s words about where his father’s funeral should rightfully take place and sheds his funeral clothes. So-so beams: “I guess you’re not fake after all. Let’s go.”

Jung-tae claims he has some business to take care of first, which leads us back to the body reveal with Leader Seol and Kaya. Leader Seol is the only one to open the casket and spot the random dead person inside, and closes it before a sudden letter arrives from Jae-hwa informing him of what he’s already confirmed: that they don’t have Daddy Shin’s corpse

EPISODE 12: “No matter what side of yourself you show, I’ll stay beside you” recap by drama beans

After their argument in the middle of the street, Wan follows Joo-yeon ten steps behind her the rest of the way home. He sighs aloud that the kind of person who’d put her first is right by her side…but she can’t see him.

He regrets his jealous rant earlier about not wanting to lose her to Tae-yoon, realizing that she’s already upset and he just made things worse for her. “I should’ve just smiled, ‘I love you.’”

She eventually stops and tells him not to follow her, though he points out that they live together, so how could he not go in the same direction? She turns to go the other way, and he apologizes for everything, saying it was his fault

“Beyond the Clouds” Off to a Shaky Start with Low Ratings

By in News posted Oct February 18th, 2014 No comments

Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye‘s drama, “Beyond the Clouds,” received rather low ratings for its premiere.

KBS 2TV drama “Beyond the Clouds” aired its first episode on January 17 and received a viewership rating of 3.7%. This was a 2.4% drop from the 6.1% ratings its predecessor, “Prime Minister and I,” received. Knowing that the drama will air in a very competitive time slot, “Beyond the Clouds” had tried to be strategic in its opening by airing its first two episodes together. However, the second episode received and improved, but still low, rating of 5.1%.

With Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye leading the cast and a solid story line, “Beyond the Clouds” doesn’t lack in star power or storytelling, but its starting at a time when its competitors have already developed a strong and loyal following

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

You Who Came From the Stars ep 16 recap by Softy

I dont like you anymore – since you are like this I don’t like you even more so please disappear from my sight – no, from my life. also it would be nice if you knew how selfish you are. MJ suddenly makes all the lights turn on everywhere. he makes her float over to him so she ends up in his arms. she asks what are you going now. MJ: the most selfish thing I can do to you. he leans in and kisses her.

She pulls away and says there really is nothing you cant do. she walks off so he stops her. she turns away and asks why – do you like me? you really cant lie. you could have just said you liked me in this mood

I Need Romance 3: Episode 8 Recap by DramaBeans

EPISODE 8: “It’s a relief that you learned how to cry again”

At the office, Joo-yeon feels another sharp pain in her chest, which tellingly happens right when Tae-yoon walks by. She’s too out of touch to make the obvious connection, of course, and just takes another pill for indigestion.

But then her thoughts float back to what Wan said to her last night, about the pain being caused by heartache because she likes someone. He tells her that he knows it sounds a little preposterous that she doesn’t even know her own heart, but says it’s understandable why she became that way—she spends most of her life at work, and work is not a place where you need a heart

‘Prime Minister and I’ Ends with Sweet Ending, Unfortunate Ratings

By in News posted Oct February 5th, 2014 No comments

Holding onto both smiles and tears, KBS’ Prime Minster and I came to an end on Tuesday night.

The drama jumped from 4.9 to 6.1 percent with its final episode, but still remained in third place in the Monday-Tuesday drama competition. The drama was not able to break 10 percent in its run, especially with a strong competitor like MBC’s Empress Ki.

However, without last minute twists. Prime Minister and I wrapped up with warmth and sweetness in the air with its family-related plotline about the contracted marriage between a prime minister and a scandal reporter.

The Full Sun will pick up after Prime Minister and I on February 10.

I Need Romance Episode 3 - 4 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:


You know you’re watching I Need Romance when the OTP kiss in the third episode. And it’s not because one slipped on a banana peel and fell on the other.

So what happened this week?

***

Episode 2 ended with Allen asking Shing Shing to go to a hotel with him. She thinks he’s propositioning her but to her disappointment, he just needs a ride. Ouch.

On the way there, she wonders why he acts so familiar with her and chalks it up to his American sensibilities. After she drops him off, he doesn’t leave without being a little too friendly as always and she wonders why it always seems like he’s flirting with her. Girl, that’s because he is.

To no surprise, we learn that Se Ryung and Big Baby PD are platonic friends

Taking a leap, MBC′s Empress Ki recorded a new high with its latest episode.

On Tuesday night, Empress Ki recorded 24.9 percent, a 2.1 jump from its previous episode of 22.8 percent.

The drama turned a new chapter, continuing its strongly knit story that kept viewers on their toes since the first episode.

Because of Empress Ki′s raging success and popularity, SBS′ A Warm Word has been floating in second place for awhile, while KBS′ Prime Minister and I continues to linger at the bottom, especially with only two more episodes left.

Yul confesses his feelings for Da-jung and wipes away her tears, apologizing for making her cry again. He takes her hand and vows never to let it go. Oh, swooooon, now that’s romantic.

But their sentimental moment is cut short when little Man-se bursts into the room seconds later, and then throws an adorable tantrum over how Da-jung chose to sleep here with Daddy last night and not him.

Boo, Na-young is still lingering outside the estate—I rather hoped you were just a figment of my imagination last week. A security guard asks her to state her business here, but she leaves without another word.

Looking at Na-young’s photo, Joon-ki wonders if Yul is really the reason behind her death

Despite the twist, Prime Minister and I dropped 0.1 percent compared to the previous ratings.

MBC’s Empress Ki, on the other hand, hit its all-time high with 22.6 percent as Ki Seung Nyang (Ha Ji Won) officially began her revenge.
