 ‘The Heirs’ Remains Stuck in LA without Progression

We’re extremely thankful for the eye candy in SBS’ The Heirs, but it’s true that we rolled our eyes at the lack of action on Wednesday night.

In the previous episode, The Heirs left us on our toes with a sudden movie theater confession by Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho), which ended up being quickly overlooked by Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye). While, it’s probably something that would happen in real life is a complete stranger sudden confesses his love for you, but the disappointment continued with the lack of any major events with Kim Tan’s big brother and bratty fiancée issues – which we already knew from earlier episodes.

“Prime Minister and I” Reveals First Stills Featuring Girls’ Generation’s YoonA and Lee Bum Soo

Seems like Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA is literally clinging to Lee Bum Soo right from the beginning.

KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Prime Minister and I” recently revealed the first stills showing the lead couple caught up in an interesting situation. YoonA has both of her arms tightly around Lee Bum Soo‘s leg while staring at the man with her puppy-dog look. With his piercing eyes, Lee Bum Soo looks at YoonA intensively, making viewers wonder what has happened between the two.

ES goes outside to throw out garbage. She sees Tan standing in front of the café with a dazed look and tears brimming in his eyes.  She looks at him silently, feeling what he feels, as he struggles to breathe with the tears rising in his throat and his chest squeezing in pain. ES starts to cry, and tears fall on both ES and Tan’s cheeks, mirroring each other.

THE PREMISE

To get a fuller intro into the show, you can catch our recaps for Episode 1 and Episode 2, but I’ll give an abbreviated setup anyway:

Our hero is Park Sun-woo (Lee Jin-wook), a successful news anchor who sees every scenario through a no-nonsense, facts-first lens. He has an older brother who’s a wandering lost soul, as weak-willed as Sun-woo is strong; his ailing mother lives in a nursing home with dementia; and his father, a hospital director, was killed twenty years ago in a fire.

Park Shin Hye asked to choose between 'Heirs' co-stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin

Park Shin Hye was faced with the tough question to choose between her “Heirs” co-stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin!

On the November 29th broadcast of KBS Radio Cool FM“s “Super Junior”s Kiss the Radio“, F.T. Island“s Hongki and Jonghun got in touch with Park Shin Hye through a phone call.

When Park Shin Hye”s former “You”re Beautiful” co-star and friend Hongki shared, “I am watching “Heirs” very well”, Park Shin Hye also threw a compliment, “Because Hongki lent his voice for my drama”s OST, it is doing well. I love [listening to] F.T. Island”s music these days.”

When dramas go crazy: Aurora Princess, a case study

We’ve been following the ever-evolving story of Aurora Princess with raised eyebrows for months, as it has become a fixture in the headlines for its parade of shenanigans. And while it’s not the type of drama we’d typically be devoting a lot of attention to, it’s worth looking at if only as the cautionary tale of what not to do when making a show. If ever there were a case of a drama having more drama behind the cameras than in front of them, this would be it.

 “Man from the Stars” Hits the Right Notes in Episodes 1 & 2

The new SBS drama “Man from the Stars” kicked off on December 18 taking over the Wednesday/Thursday time slot from Heirs. I will be covering this fantasy rom-com for Soompi on a weekly basis. Please be sure to check in and share your thoughts about this drama!

Summary

When Do Min Joon landed on Earth 400 years ago, he didn’t realize how much he would dislike living there. He doesn’t age, making it very hard to build relationships with other people, and his super abilities like extra sensitive hearing and the power to stop time don’t seem to do him much good. It’s understandable that over time Min Joon has developed a very cynical outlook towards human life. How will this viewpoint change as he interacts with the loud and opinionated actress Chun Song Yi? As fate would have it, these two already have a deep connection, a connection which spans over 400 years. Get ready for a romance that is out of this world!

Variety Roulette: Rain Effect

Variety Roulette: Rain Effect

I totally wasn’t intending to write up the brand-new reality show Rain Effect, but I fired up the first episode out of curiosity and immediately got sucked into its fun, funny vibe. (Trust me, I wasn’t looking for another thing to recap!) It’s been a while since we’ve done a Variety Roulette; nothing like a little Rain to merit a comeback.

These kinds of reality-docu shows aren’t by any means new, but it’s not often you get one with a star as big as Rain. (And I’m sure I’m not the only one who had a brief flash to the Jeon Ji-hyun character doing one in the newly premiered drama You From Another Star.) True, he hasn’t been as big in recent years as he once was at the height of his pop-star fame (the mid-2000s were SO all about Rain), even if you factor for his two-year army-duty absence, but he’s certainly achieved enough to have solidified his place as a lasting star in the K-pop firmament.

Answer Me 1994: Episodes 14 to 19 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:

One more day and this drama will end! I’m really excited to watch the finale.

On that note, shall we focus on the story and set aside the shippers war?? Oppa and Chil Bong respect each other so much to even compete for Na Jung. She isn’t a prize to be won here. I know that being on either side brought tension and less excitement to some viewers. Personally, I avoid staying at threads because it also influence me. Just to stay within the story, and enjoy it more, let me share with you a view from where I am. Biases aside. I love Oppa so much I’m not going to trash talk him. He doesn’t deserve that, even if I’m on Team Chil Bong.

We’ve reached the halfway point of “Man from the Stars” and the show continues to astound viewers. Episodes 9 and 10 focus largely on present day events, exploring the topics of love, money (or lack there of), and sinister plots. Song Yi must confront her growing feelings for Min Joon, while at the same time, Min Joon already worries about what consequences his future departure will have on Song Yi. Jae Kyung continues with his murderous plans, but Min Joon isn’t content with letting Jae Kyung have his way. Be ready for some dramatic confrontations!

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.
