By: Dramabeans Fighting nerves, Nae-il stumbles onto the stage and sits at the piano for her first-round performance. Looking to Yoo-jin out in the audience calms her, and he thinks encouraging thoughts her way as she begins her competition piece.She’s off to a good start, and Yoo-jin relaxes while the judges start nodding approvingly, noting that she’s the best so far. Teacher Do is pleased, too, recognizing that Nae-il is adding her own feeling into the performance: “Good,” he thinks. “Play just like that.”Also watching is Teacher Yoon from the master class, who remains stony-faced through it all. Yoon-hoo, on the other hand, doesn’t look worried as he joins her in the audience. Nae-il plays strongly through the end, and more than anything I love that she looks thrilled with herself. Teacher Do bursts into applause, and Yoo-jin joins in, thinking, “Good job, Seol Nae-il

The other three boys hunt grasshoppers and wonder where Hyuk went, since he’s not answering his phone.Sang-eun comes squealing up to tell them that their appearance on her video blog was a hit — the video of her father fish-slapping them is going viral on the internet. They’re embarrassed, though she points out that it’s still promotion for their band.

Snake surprises Min-ki by grabbing a grasshopper before he gets to it, and HAHAHA, he’s dressed in country farmer clothing

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

This is a really dense episode, packed with character revelations and plot twists that are actually revelatory and truthfully twisty, and even though it calls for every ounce of attention you can dedicate to it, it doesn’t fail to reward you for time well spent. So much happens this hour that it’s near impossible to sum it all up here, suffice to say that the time to reunite our dearest and most craziest of villains with his missing marbles has come and gone, along with any shot he might’ve had at redemption. He’s positivelyunhinged now, as opposed to just being functionally certifiable before. Don’t think there’s a difference? Wait and see.by DramabeansFaced with a possible traitor amongst them, Woo-jin turns to Dal-goo to ask why he did it, before revealing that he never thought Do-young was psychic and suspected he had an accomplice from the beginning

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

Teacher Ahn is pleased at this sign that the boycott issue was resolved, while Teacher Do sniffs that an S Orchestra student is still going to fail, considering that judging will purely be based on ability.Yoo-jin and Nae-il arrive just in time for the first solo, recognizing Il-lac immediately. While he plays, Il-lac’s mind is full of Nae-il’s earlier reminder of everything Yoo-jin had done for them. In this case, Yoo-jin’s actions speak louder than his words (in that he offered no words). As Yoo-jin watches anxiously, Nae-il reaches out and takes his hand in a reassuring gesture.

by Dramabeans: Yeongjo gives Sun a chance to be reinstated as prince-regent—all he has to do is meet the Qing envoys who are on their way and ready to declare war (over a naval skirmish with a Joseon fishing boat), and stop a war from happening. Oh, is that all?He makes it clear that taking on the task is a double-edged sword because if Sun succeeds, he does get to be regent again, but if he fails, he will forever be stripped of his rights to the regency. That means he’ll never practice politics ever again. Yeongjo makes sure to add that he won’t be lenient on him just because he’s his only son. I’m pretty sure no one here thought you would. But his point stings nonetheless—he’s happy to find a successor elsewhere.The extreme terms of the deal don’t dissuade Sun, and he agrees to take on the challenge to convince the Qing envoys without caving to their demands

by Dramabeans:Nae-il comes to Yoo-jin for comfort after running out on her lesson, where she was told Teacher Do would be her new instructor. She calms at the touch of his hand, but the effect is short-lived because Yoo-jin tells her that she needs a stern teacher to help her grow as a musician, and that she shouldn’t waste her talent. He takes a call from Teacher Do and says he’ll bring Nae-il in to her lesson, and, feeling betrayed, she withdraws her hand from his grasp.Nae-il cries that he’s just like everyone else for forcing her when that leads to tears and pain, but Yoo-jin replies that if everyone’s saying the same thing, then she’s the one who’s wrong. He’s not mean about it, but ouch, that seems a little tone-deaf to Nae-il’s stricken reaction. She sobs, “Not being able to do as I want—you don’t know what that’s like

by Couch-kimchi:A few details were revealed, we learned more about Yeol-Moo past. We also met her Mom, who is most likely crazy from grief and we learned the reason Yeol-Moo dropped Dong Chi but we’ll need more to understand why she thinks he’s a murderer. Ratings for this drama are strong, beating outSecret Door and Tomorrow’s Cantabile to remain #1 in its time slot. I’m gonna make a wild guess that part of it is due to the power of Baek Jin Hee again.Those of you who watched Empress Ki with me will remember the Korean audience being very vocal in their adoration of this actress, to the point that the script was changed to extend her part. I’m sure Choi Jin Hyuk is loved as well but the very tiny Baek Jin Hee has become a mighty draw on TV when she’s paired with a great script. All those pieces are falling into place with this drama, at least for now

by Dramabeans:It’s a grand entrance for a gorgeous woman, whom we’ll come to know as SA-RA (Han Ye-seul), who walks down a street and turns heads left and right with her stunning appearance. Everywhere she goes she attracts admiring glances and drops jaws; she explains that she’s an actress who’s just come back to Korea after working in the U.S. This makes sense to everyone who sees her, and she gets the royal treatment.She gets her fortune told by a face reader, who is awed by the interesting combination of fates she holds in her hands (er, face): Not only is she an uncommon beauty, she also has the fortune of a military general and might even save the nation. That is, if she steers clear of her two pitfalls: the need to get involved in matters, and bad guys.Sa-ra starts to clue into the uneasy feeling that she’s being followed, and this is how we get our introduction to HAN TAE-HEE (Joo Sang-wook, whose combination of dorky and heo-dang antics I have really missed, and love to see back in action here)

Actor Kim Kang Woo met his future wife Han Moo Young at a bar when he was out drinking with a friend.

"I knew right away that she was the one I had to marry," he told Korea.com.

They celebrated their mutual attraction that night by sharing some bottles of soju.

"She can drink a lot," he said. "She said beer was too weak and drank soju."

They finished five bottles of soju between them and had their first kiss that very night. Although they wasted no time getting to the first kiss, the couple did not rush their relationship. They dated for seven years before their June wedding at Myeongdong Cathedral in 2010. They were both 32 when they married.

9 Bromances that tugged at our heartstrings

The bromance is just one among the large number of tropes in K-Dramas - the bond between two or more men that really helps define their characters. Sometimes, it takes a blow because of the romance, as the third member of the inevitable triangle feels resentful. Other times, it"s just a side story that"s sweet for the audience to watch. Whether the bromance is endearing or edgy and angsty, no one can deny that the bromance is an essential part of K-Dramas.

Reply 1994

Very much big brother (Trash) and little brother (Binggeure), and complete bromance territory. They even had a kissing scene (pictured above) that, um, had an interesting off-screen story... "We got the okay on the first try," said Baro (of B1A4)

With hit drama The Heirs and kickass film Friend 2 keeping him busy, Kim Woo Bin is hot stuff these days, but what are people most interested in about the star?

We did a simple search on Korea’s portal sites to see what keywords come up in relation to Kim Woo Bin, and below are our finds.


That’s the first word that pops up next to Kim Woo Bin’s name, and we’re not talking cars. It’s the Konglish term for the lined bomber jacket, one of the many clothing items seen on Kim Woo Bin’s character Young Do on The Heirs.

In addition to “mustang,” “fashion,” “shoes” and “coat” are among the most searched words related to Kim Woo Bin. It makes sense that the star, who got his start as a model, is a fast rising style icon, and many of the keywords related to Kim Woo Bin have to do with his wardrobe choices
