Having turned just 27 this year (Korean age), Kim Soo Hyun has become one of Korea’s representative and irreplaceable actors.
From his early project Giant to the most recent syndrome-causing You Who Came From the Stars, the actor has been setting records with his successful projects.
With numerous places sending out love calls, Kim Soo Hyun turned all of this success to those around him and remained humble.
Having just completed filming, without having chance to look around at the explosive response surrounding him, Kim Soo Hyun looked rather relaxed and calm. One could see the actor has finally left behind ‘Do Min Jun,’ the character who struggled with deep emotions, from the looks of ease on his face.
-How would you compare Do Min Jun to Kim Soo Hyun?
“(Do) Min Jun knows many things, but I need to study a lot more
In the woods, a SWAT team sweeps the area with dogs as a man flees for cover.
Inside the presidential villa, Security Team Leader Ham sits with his shirt off after bandaging a wound in his arm. He growls that the suspect in the assassination attempt against the president has been spotted: “It’s Secret Service agent Han Tae-kyung.”
And back in the woods, we see that it’s Tae-kyung who’s being chased by the army of agents. Crud.
90 minutes earlier. March 5. 8:00 PM.
We go back to the moment of the blackout, this time from the Secret Service agents’ perspective from inside the villa. They scramble to get communications back up to check on the president’s status when the shots ring out: one, two, three
With its second episode, SBS’ God’s Gift – 14 Days set down its plotline, piercing fear and thrill into the viewers.
The first two episodes introduced the characters, before immediately jumping into kidnapping and murder of the drama’s youngest character. Viewers have been praising the high quality story, as well as the acting of Lee Bo Young, who perfectly portrayed a mother who is willing to do anything to save her child.
The episodes also brought up many social issues that have been taking place in Korea, sending fear at the possibility that what’s happening in the drama could easily happen in real life.
Although the drama received a ratings increase, so did MBC’s Empress Ki, who kept its overwhelming record at first.
Wow, talk about a 3-in-1 combination! 2PM’s Ock Taecyeon displayed his gentleness towards his family in the recent episode of KBS’ “Wonderful Days.” Episode three of the KBS drama showed how Ock Taecyeon’s character, Kim Dong Hee, cared for his family. Although in the public he maintained his manly composure, a scene in the March 1 episode depicted Dong Hee as the best son, brother, and father. When he returned home to find his mother praying, the son pleasantly surprised his mother, Jang So Shim, with a loving back hug. The action alone could label him as Korea’s best son, as Dong Hee openly displayed his love to his mother. However, his love wasn’t reserved only for his mother, as he showed care for his entire family.
Upon entering the room shared by his daughter and older sister, Dong Hee helped move his sleeping daughter (although she knows him as her older brother) in to a more comfortable position
“Emergency Couple” has broken its previous ratings with a great margin!
According to ratings agency Nielsen Korea, episode 11 that aired on March 1 recorded average ratings of 4.1%, with peaks as high as 4.8%. As episode 10 attracted merely 3.4% of viewers on average, this is a significant rise. The drama also took the first place among other shows airing at the same time.
On this episode, Oh Jin Hee (Song Ji Hyo) and Oh Chang Min (Choi Jin Hyuk) took small but steady steps towards getting closer again, as they reminisced their life before the divorce. Due to a collarbone fracture, Jin Hee was unable to move her arms freely, thus struggling to eat her meal. To help her out, Chang Min could be seen feeding her in an adorable manner.
The memories they wanted to forget and destroy after getting divorced slowly begun to change into moments that both of them wanted to restore
