big 7 korean drama
Okay, I seriously love this episode. I swear it’s not even because our hero finally gets a makeover (even though that’s worth a round of applause in and of itself—fare thee well, Mop of Shame!), but because the family stuff hits all the right chords. It’s an episode about fathers, and the kind of love that’s so steadfast that sometimes a reminder is a shock to the system—a poignant, tear-filled, affectionate shock.by DramabeansTiger J.K – “첫사랑” (First Love) for the Pinocchio OST
EPISODE 4: “Romeo and Juliet” We rewind a little to see that Dad finds the kids on the rooftop and hides out of sight, just in time to watch Dal-po try to stop In-ha’s day-long bout of hiccups, over having to lie that things went great with Mom and she’s totally fine giving up on journalism altogether
Im Si Wan plays worker Jang Geu Rae on the drama "Misaeng." He plays a worker with only a GED but he"s no dummy. His character"s ability to strategize had him on track to become a professional baduk player. And those strategizing skills come in handy at the office.
It"s fitting that ZE:A"s Im Si Wan should play someone smart as he studied mechanical engineering at Busan University. There he was considered a gifted student and received plenty of academic awards. His fellow ZE:A members even voted him the smartest in the group.
Actor Kang Dong Wan also majored in mechanical engineering, only he attended Hanyang University. The actor, who appears in the k-movies "My Brilliant Life" and "Kundo: Age of Rampant," graduated Hanyang University with honors
by Dramabeans:Back in the van, Goo-tak assures Tae-soo that they’ll find the guy that killed the pawnshop owner since they’ve found the weapon. But Tae-soo recognizes a fellow assassin’s work when he sees one—an expertly-placed stab wound caused Pawnbroker Im to die from massive blood loss within seconds.The professional they’re dealing with is among the best of the best: a completely emotionless assassin, whose work leaves no trace of evidence, no unnecessary wounds, and lastly, no sense of guilt.Team Crazy Dogs heads back to HQ where Prosecutor Oh is already waiting for them. He’s delighted to meet everyone in person—Jung-moon in particular, to whom he says it’s been three years since they’ve last seen one another. A quick flashback reveals that Prosecutor Oh had chuckled at Jung-moon’s high psychopathy score in the interrogation room years ago
Contract workers’ dramatic fight for rights are put in the spotlight in the newly released film Cart (카트). It’s the first mainstream film to be made about this serious issue in South Korea. Yum Jung-ah (The Big Swindle) plays Sun-hee, a mother and contract worker for a large department store. She works alongside single mother Hye-mi (Moon Jeong-hee, Deranged) and Soon-rye ( Kim Young-ae, Birth of a Beauty). The contract workers find out that they will be fired for no apparent reason and decide to create a union to fight the company. The film showcases the struggle between the workers and the corporation. The film’s director Boo Ji-young wanted to show the human side of the workers, rather than just the political side
Ratings with more than 6% for a cable television channel are very rare. Crossing that threshold means that a show is officially a sensation. So if a tvN cooking-eating cable variety show reached 8.3% in ratings, no one could deny that it is simply crazy.
Na PD — the genius behind 2 Days 1 Night and the Over Flowers series — is responsible for coming out with this smashing hit; Three Meals a Day. The idea is to put actor Lee Seo-jin and 2PM member Taecyeon in a secluded village house and ask them to cook anything and eat those meals three times a day. Little that he knew, his simple idea has sent Korean audiences into a frenzy
Agh, they’re so cuuuuute. Now that our backstory is in place, the second episode actually brings our leads together onscreen, and I’m happy to say that their dynamic is adorable—their bickering relationship is funny and heartfelt, and I really like both characters. It was impossible to tell from the first episode alone if the show would reel me in, but by the end of this hour, they’ve got me. Last-place student Dal-po wins his first round of the TV quiz show, wiping the smirk off of the first-place champion and surprising everyone in their class. As the audience claps and the cameras turn to him, he narrates in voiceover that after suffering those cruel events with his family, he vowed to never set foot in a broadcast station or exchange words with anyone even remotely associated with a network
It’s Sunday, the day of rest, and in the early morning, Geu-rae goes for a run, remembering how his old baduk teacher counseled that physical health is important for mental health, especially when it comes to will power and stamina.At a coffee shop, Baek-ki tries to appear politely interested in his blind date, but she’s more focused on his salary and how he would be able to provide for her. He bails early and heads to the movies, where he runs into Young-yi (and he lies that he’s dressed up for a friend’s wedding, not a blind date).They end up watching a horror-film double-feature together, and afterwards Young-yi is amused at Baek-ki’s glassy-eyed expression. Ha! Apparently he can’t handle scary movies. She leans in to tell him one more scary thing: “Tomorrow’s Monday
It has recently been announced that actor and model Lee Jong Suk has become the face for popular eyewear and apparel brand, Oakley.
Based out of California, Oakley focuses on sports equipment and apparel as well as various other pieces of athletic gear.
Lee Jong Suk is the first Korean model to appear in endorsements for Oakley.
In the new promotional posters and ads, the popular Korean leading man is seen posing casually in the famous eyewear. In addition to the eyewear, Lee Jong Suk also took part in modeling various pieces of urban athletic wear
Before Lee Jong Suk was making leaps and bounds as a drama star, he was boasting quite the extensive modeling career having walked fashion runways for some of the biggest shows
November 11 marks the celebration of Pepero Day: an unmistakably corporate holiday that is marketed heavily by South Korea’s Lotte Corporation. Lotte is so successful in this endeavor that Pepero Day sales (from October to November) make up half of the candy company’s annual profit. It’s impossible to miss the signs of Pepero Day approaching. Stands and towers of Pepero and romance themed gifts pop up just about everywhere, even in stores that may not otherwise carry candy products regularly. Idol group endorsements also flood the media (this year with Exo and Red Velvet).
South Koreans celebrate Pepero Day much like Valentine’s Day. In lieu of valentines, they exchange boxes and sticks of the popular chocolate-coated cookie sticks (worry not — there’s a space on the back dedicated to writing your own love message to the recipient)
It’s not that big girls need love too, it’s that they need pity and really good cosmetic surgery. At least, that’s what I expected the pilot episodes of SBS’s Birth of a Beauty would try to have me believe. However, I stand corrected.
Reminiscent of the hit 2006 film, 200 Pounds Beauty, the familiar make-over/revenge plot is re-vamped with humor, mystery and an attempt at social commentary that make Birth of a Beauty both unique and touching. It’s not that plastic surgery becomes a cure-all for the plight of Guem-ran (Ha Jae-sook). Rather, her transformation forces both her and the audience to consider the complex beauty standards that seem to dictate a great deal of a woman’s life
