Emergency Couple Episode 3 - 4 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:

This week offered so much depth and interesting information about what really went wrong between Chang Min and Jin Hee. I know there’s more to see and we personally can’t wait to discover more. When two passionate individuals collide, we can expect a thrill like no other.

Tessieroo: Jin Hee inadvertently shocks Chang Min, he falls to the ground unconscience. Cheon-Soo rushes to his side. He’s placed on a gurney and his shirt is cut open to place electrodes on his chest. *stares, slack-jawed at Jin Hyuk’s massive chest*

Leila: Just as I thought, shocking Chang Min wasn’t intentional. I guess because of the urgency of the moment, all Jin Hee could think of is saving Chang Min

By in News posted Oct February 10th, 2014 No comments

It’s not easy to let go of a talented singer, and as Hong Jeong Hee left SBS’ K-Pop Star, judge Yoo Hee Yeol couldn’t hold back his tears.

On Sunday night, the judges eliminated Hong Jeong Hee, who was stuck in a tough group to compete with.

As the judges bid her farewell, Yoo Hee Yeol broke down in tears, as he unfortunately had to let go of a talented student that he personally trained for three weeks.

As Hong Jeong Hee said she’ll visit him on his music program, Yoo Hee Yeol replied back that he learned a lot from her in the three weeks of training. He hoped that they’ll meet once again on stage and he’ll even play the piano for her.

Age of Feeling: Episode 7 Recap by Drama Beans

The fight between Jung-tae and the bunch of thugs commences, with Jung-tae being smart enough to use one as a human shield against all the would-be blunt force trauma.

Despite being outnumbered, Jung-tae holds his own and even manages to kick some ass. He receives a few blows to the back and one to the back of the head (ouch), but it’s still not enough to keep him down. It’s brutal, but awesome.

While poor Ok-ryun continues to wait for Jung-tae outside the closed restaurant, we see him emerge, stumbling, from the warehouse. He’s covered in blood and barely conscious, but he’s won the fight. I don’t know why I feel like cheering

Actor Lee Jong Hyuk Shares Son Junsu’s Kindergarten Graduation Photo

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

Actor Lee Jong Hyuk recently shared a photo of his son Junsu in his kindergarten uniform for the very last time.

On February 4, the actor tweeted the photo along with an endearing message that reads, “Today is Junsu’s kindergarten graduation photo day. Looks like the clothes have gotten smaller on him…be sure to take your photo with a smile, Junsu.”

In the photo, Junsu has on a uniform and even a necktie. And just as his father had pointed out, the sleeves on Junsu’s uniform seem a bit short for him.

Netizens commented, “Wow, Junsu is already going to elementary school,” “I already miss Junsu,” and “Even looking at Junsu smile makes other people happy.”

In related news, Lee Jong Hyuk and Junsu left the “Dad, Where Are We Going?” variety program series, where the pair first gained recognition and public adoration for their father and son relationship

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

“Empress Ki” – Episode 23 - 24 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:

This week was equal parts heartbreak, frustration and excitement. Heartbreaking watching Ki suffer and frustrating watching the bad guys continue to win. But there is excitement that we’re moving into the revenge stage. Both ships have suffered blows however, there are signs a new ship is forming? LOL!
Tessieroo: Ki has her baby, alone in a cave. (depressing much?) It’s a boy and she names him “Byul” which means Star. In Yuan, Wang Yoo is thrown from his horse.

Rinchan: That baby’s cry was strong enough to knock some sense in his dad all the way from Yuan, I sense the burgeoning of strong, unconscious family ties here.

Tessieroo: Ki hears voices, she runs but they’re not far behind

Daddy Shin goes looking for Aka the Assassin, but ends up running into the Fortunetelling Elder instead. They speak cryptically, as though the Fortuneteller already knows what transpired, but the fact remains that he holds some kind of sway or power over Daddy Shin.

So when he orders Daddy Shin to come with him (to somewhere unspecified), he can’t help but obey. He only asks that the Fortuneteller promise him one thing in return.

Kaya goes to a riverbank to spread her father’s ashes while Shinichi stands as a silent sentinel not too far behind. Among her father’s effects are the pictures we saw, but also a letter addressed to her with a warning not to trust whoever wears the other half of her amulet—he’s the one who killed her mother, and he’ll kill her too

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.

How could we possibly talk about 2013 and leave EXO out? (On a side note: I keep using this picture for my EXO articles because I really like it for some reason.) When EXO debuted in 2012 with "MAMA", they had a lot of fangirls crying at their awesomeness.
