By in News posted Oct October 16th, 2014 No comments

 

"Modern Farmer," the k-drama about a disenchanted band that tries to live the country life, begins this weekend. The drama, which stars FT Island"s Lee Hongki, Park Min Woo, Lee Si Un, Lee Ha Nui and Kwak Dong Yeon, is the latest in a k-drama legacy about the boys in the band.

In this drama the burned-out rock band Excellent Souls moves to the country to make a new life. Not only is it not the first show about idols or the only drama in which idols play idols; it"s not even Lee Hongki"s first k-drama role playing an idol. But that"s okay because k-dramas about bands are usually entertaining to watch.

Here are a few other k-dramas that strike the right note for music fans.

"My Lovable Girl": This currently running drama starring real life idols acting the roles of idols shows some of the darker sides of the entertainment industry

10 BEST HISTORICAL DRAMAS
Historical dramas run the gamut from comedy to brutality, sometimes all in the same drama! Counter to the normal K-Drama, a historical drama can actually provide a little bit of education. While I won"t pretend that "The Night Watchman" or "Book of the House of Gu" is real, they do have as their backdrop a real period in history, which can provide an interest in learning more about that era. They can also provide a rich visual feast and show you things you simply won"t see anymore. Whatever the reasons, the historical drama is an important K-drama staple. Here are my picks for the 10 best!




CHUNO
Pure guilty pleasure, not unlike the barbarian movies of the 1980s. "Chuno" is about a Joseon-era slave hunter who finds and recaptures slaves because of a slave that burnt his house down, killing his family

By in News posted Oct September 9th, 2014 No comments
As K-Drama fans, we recognize a couple of favorite faces and big names. These are the acting royalty, making up the top tier of Korean Hollywood, constantly being casted and re-casted as protagonists, and basking in the spotlight of our TV/computer screens.

There"s a reason that these actors/actresses are always snagging the big roles; they bring life to their characters with a certain style and flair. But as they grow older and move on to take on more mature roles, we have to ask, who will be the second generation acting royalty? Who are the up-and-coming actors/actresses that we can expect to reign in the future? Here are some of allkpop"s choices for 7 K-Drama queens and their successors. Take a look!

We all love watching Korean dramas. Most of us are probably even guilty of neglecting the real world from time to time so we can go on K-drama benders and marathon our favorite shows.

They suck you in, make you laugh and cry, and keep you glued to your seat because you just HAVE to know if your favorite couple is going to end up together, or if the handsome spy is going to survive until the end. But K-dramas aren’t just exclusive to TV. Here’s a list of some of the best music videos with K-drama style plots!

By in News posted Oct August 29th, 2014 No comments

 

If you"re enjoying the funny and tear-inducing scenes in the current k-drama "Fated To Love You," you may want to check out the Chinese version. The k-drama starring Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara, Wang Ji Won and Choi Jin Hyuk is a remake of a Taiwanese drama of the same name.

In the 2008 Taiwanese drama the Jang Nara role is played by Joe Chen and Ethan Juan plays the Jang Hyuk role. Baron Chen plays the Choi Jin Hyuk role and Bianca Bai takes on the Wang Ji Won role. The series scored the highest average single episode rating in China and won several awards.

But "Fated To Love You" is not the first k-drama remake of a Taiwanese drama. One of the best-known k-dramas, often described as the gateway drama, is "Boys Over Flowers." Although it is based on a Japanese manga "Hani Yori Dango," it aired as two seasons of "Meteor Garden" before the Korean version

A huge part of the Korean drama industry has been taken over by remakes of foreign dramas and anime. An example of a recent remake would be MBC’s “Fated to Love You,” which is an adaptation of a Taiwanese drama of a similar name. Recently, a list of the Best three and Worst three drama remakes were made:

“It doesn’t get any better than this” Best 3

The top remake of all time is 2009 KBS drama “Boys Over Flowers,” which brought upon a worldwide F4 syndrome with a best rating of 33.5% and an average rating of 28.5%. It started Goo Hye Sun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Joon, and Kim Bum. “Boys Over Flowers” was a remake of a Japanese manga of the same name.

It’s about time we show our love and respect for our favorite women in their 30s gracing our TV (or computer) screens with their beauty. Here are eight of those talented actresses who effortlessly prove that aging might be something to look forward to after all.

1. Choi Ji Woo

We start off strong, seeing as Choi Ji Woo is 38 and still wowing us to this day. Many fans know her from her emotional performance in Winter Sonata, but she can now be seen playing the titular character in the newly premiered The Suspicious Housekeeper.

2. Song Hye Kyo

Another actress well-known for her work in the seasonal Endless Love series, Song Hye Kyo is 31 and possibly—probably—even more beautiful than she was ten years ago

Top 8 Charming Actors With Bromances in K-Dramas

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

Bromance has become an important staple in Korean dramas. At times friendships between the male characters can be so endearing that viewers come to cheer them on just as much as the main romantic couple. Here are some of my favorite bromantic pairings!

1. Go Nam Soon (Lee Jong Suk) and Park Heung Soo (Kim Woo Bin) in School 2013.

These two are beyond adorable. Not only did their troubled friendship in School 2013 steal the hearts of viewers, but these models turned actors are actual friends in real life! I hope we can see more of their fantastic bromance in future projects.

2. Geol Oh (Yoo Ah In) and Yeo Rim (Song Joong Ki) in Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Who could forget the heartfelt and hilarious friendship between sullen Geol Oh and flamboyant Yeo Rim? These tight friends really knew what it meant to give each other support, regardless of the circumstances

Casting Drama: Should Idols Act? Written by Joyce On August 22, 2014

In recent weeks, drama land has been filled with news of idols being cast in lead roles — Sun-hwa in Rosy Lovers; Rain, Krystal and L in My Lovely Girl; Soo-young in My Spring Day. While idols venturing into the acting field is nothing new, I doubt there’s ever been such a high percentage of lead roles given to idols.

While there are a handful of idols who have successfully proven their worth in the acting world (Yoochun, Rain, Lee Seung-giLee JoonSeo In-guk, etc), it’s not surprising that most idol casting news is met with a healthy amount of skepticism and unhappiness

Joseon Gunman, Episodes 5-14: Gunning for Revenge Written by Joyce On August 20, 2014

Joseon Gunman is practically synonymous with Lee Jun-ki, serving as an extension of his action-filled resume. The more I watch, the more amazed I am how how far he has come since his My Girl days, carving a niche for himself as an action thriller star.

Disclaimer: Spoilers ahead.

After the first four episodes laid the groundwork for his revenge motive, the darker plot and tone starts to really kick in from there onwards. Yoon-kang (Lee Jun-ki) doesn’t disappoint as a lead character, bringing to the plate an intricately woven transformation from a carefree nobleman to a gunman full of vengeance, equipped with a occasionally questionable moral compass
