Prime Minister and I: Episode 16 Recap By DramaBeans

Despite Yul coming to collect her, Da-jung declares that she won’t be going back home with him, and adds for good measure: “Let’s break up.” But Yul refuses to hear it and takes her suitcase before ushering Da-jung into the car by the hand.

It’s a mostly silent ride until Yul pulls over to the side of the road and gets out to finally get some air. When Da-jung follows him, he demands to know her train of thought by having him meet his not-so-dead first wife and leaving them—was it for his sake? Or the children?

“It was for me,” Da-jung answers. The idea of becoming the children’s stepmother had scared her despite her feelings for Yul, and felt it appropriate to step aside now that their mother had reappeared

“Man From the Stars” Kim Soo Hyun Increases Book Sales

By in News posted Oct January 12th, 2014 No comments

American writer Kate DiCamillo’s “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” recently sold over 30,000 copies.

The book was first published in 2009, and was quickly forgotten without receiving much interest. However, it’s as if the book has sprouted wings; it’s selling like crazy. This is because of its appearance in the currently very hot SBS drama, “Man From the Stars.”

In the drama, which is about the fateful love story of 400-year-old alien Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) and top star Chun Song Yi (Jun Ji Hyun), Do Min Joon is often seen reading books, and they have become more than just simple props.

The lines from the book fantastically fall in line with the innocent heart of Do Min Joon, and give his story another level of wholeness, as well as an additional element of foreshadowing in the drama

“Hot Blooded Youth”: Posters and Trailer revealed!

By in News posted Oct January 7th, 2014 No comments

This turned out to be more of a comedy than I expected, not that I’m complaining of course. The trailer for Park Bo-young and Lee Jong-seok’s ’80s youth movie Hot Blooded Youth shows a light, quirky bent to the story of a gangster girl who laments that the ladies’ man on campus doesn’t see her as a woman, while he in turn runs from her, constantly terrified that she’ll beat him up because he doesn’t like her. Cute.

Lee Jong-seok plays the “legendary Casanova” who takes after his smooth-talking father (Kwon Hae-hyo, Goddess of Marriage) and can get any girl he wants, as we see at the start of the trailer. Park Bo-young is the loyal gangster who rules the school and gets greeted with bows at the waist like she’s a little mob boss in the making

Marriage angst and partner-swapping in Warm Words

By in News posted Oct November 18th, 2013 No comments

Here’s a peek at SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words, set to take over Suspicious Housekeeper’s timeslot in just a few weeks. The 20-episode melodrama is about two married couples and one affair that threatens to unravel both households. It’s purported to be Desperate Housewives-y, but the teaser seems just straight melo to me, not that the thirty-second teaser reveals much about the show other than the affair that will wring tears. It does start with an intriguing line: “I meet my husband’s lover every day…”

The drama comes from the writer of Can We Get Married and the PD of Five Fingers, and is about the two extended families that hang in the balance when a married man and woman start a dangerous love affair

After spending much time on land, the men of MBC’s Real Man headed off to sea, only to meet perhaps the harshest trainer from hell yet.

On Sunday night, the celebrity soldiers were visited by 2EYES, Park Eun Ji, and Jung Joo Yeon with picnic lunches. However, the members were dropped from cloud 9 as soon as they hit the naval base, where their trainer, perhaps the scariest they’ve ever encountered, was waiting for them.

The members were constantly yelled at by the trainer, even for the tiniest movement. And even during snack time, the trainer had all the soldiers wrapped around his pinky as he ordered them to eat their snacks in the most delicious manner.

The fierce training in the navy brought the series to the top of the variety show ranking with 18.1 percent on Sunday night.
