By: Dramabeans We rewind a little to see that Dad finds the kids on the rooftop and hides out of sight, just in time to watch Dal-po try to stop In-ha’s day-long bout of hiccups, over having to lie that things went great with Mom and she’s totally fine giving up on journalism altogether. In-ha knows that Dal-po gave up college for her, and says she can’t live off of his taxi-driving income forever.But Dal-po stops her from burning all her books by declaring that he needs them now, because he’s going to become a reporter too. Just like that, her hiccups stop, and fireworks explode in the distance.As they head back down with her suitcase full of books, In-ha offers to give Dal-po her precious notes that she spent three years compiling. She worries about Grandpa finding out that Dal-po isn’t dumb, but he’s not concerned at all, since he plans to keep his cabbie job and just study intermittently because he’s positive he won’t be hired

Recap for SBS Drama Pinocchio Episode 4

By in News posted Oct November 21st, 2014 No comments

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

EPISODE 4: “Romeo and Juliet” We rewind a little to see that Dad finds the kids on the rooftop and hides out of sight, just in time to watch Dal-po try to stop In-ha’s day-long bout of hiccups, over having to lie that things went great with Mom and she’s totally fine giving up on journalism altogether

Michael Jackson: K-Pop’s Biggest Idol?

Michael Jackson: K-Pop’s Biggest Idol? Written by Laura On November 16, 2014

When newly-minted international superstar Psy was asked by The Hollywood Reporter in 2012 what he deemed to be the USA’s greatest export, he answered:

“First of all, the English language. And also pop music. A song like Michael Jackson["s] ‘Billie Jean,’ it’s like the world’s biggest, most universal language.”

Now, the answers he chose (language & pop music) might not be surprising. But the fact that he chose Michael Jackson as an example is notable, and, as this article will convey, in no way a coincidence.

Of course, some might argue that Jackson is an obvious pick. Hailed as the King of Pop for decades, and with his popularity surging up again after his untimely death in 2009, MJ would easily come to a lot of people’s minds when they think of pop music

When Idols Show their True Colours: The Dangers of Racial Stereotyping Written by Sidrah On November 13, 2014

On the November 1st broadcast of C-Radio Idol True Colours, Red Velvet member Wendy revealed a rather controversial personal ‘talent’ that left many people — particularly international fans — somewhat less than amused. During a segment of the show, she felt it was appropriate to perform a few questionable impersonations of both Black Americans and White Americans, male and female, to the absolute delight and encouragement of her peers. Unfortunately for her, they also inevitably fell under the incredibly sensitive topic of racial stereotyping, which presumably resulted in a majority of negative responses and backlash within a sea of fairly mixed comments

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.

Recap: “Old Goodbye,” MBC’s Drama Festival Special

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

I was one of the many who immediately jumped on the “Old Goodbye” bandwagon when news first broke out that it was due to air this November. Not only was the time travel, fantasy plot interesting, but this drama special is, quite possibly, the only chance we’d ever get to see a true “Fated to Love You” reunion. The staff of “Old Goodbye” involves not only Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara, but also Im Hyung Joon, who portrayed half of the Hamo-Hamo duo, Mr. Choi, and Kim Hee Won, the director for “Fated to Love You.”

As such a big fan of the drama, “Old Goodbye” was a gift. The anxiety of waiting for November 10 to roll around gave way to excitement when I was finally able to push that play button

To get a better understanding of the couples, let’s take a closer look at the husbands.

Hong Jong Hyun – The Ice Man

Yura is the loud and bubble idol while Hong Jong Hyun is the quiet handsome actor who just leans a little bit away when Yura starts playfully hitting him. It’s not that Jong Hyun doesn’t have a sense of humor, sometimes he can be quite witty, it’s just that his initial reaction is to not say much

Our favorite female idols are beautiful. Stunning beings with their sexy eyeliner, beautiful skin, and glorious hair, female idols are bombshells that are here to blow us away with just one look.



Queens. Bow down.




Despite being flawless, however, some special female idols have quite the rep for being unexpectedly, hilariously derpy. Here are some of the derpiest female idols around that often have fans laughing at and falling in love with their array of facial expressions, whether they derp on purpose or not.


Girls" Generation"s Sooyoung


Many people deem Sooyoung"s looks to be "exotic", but some don"t know just how "exotic" her contorted facial expressions can get!

9 Female Idols That Pull off Crazy Hair: Pink Edition

By in News posted Oct October 13th, 2014 No comments

We previously listed 8 male idols that can rock pink hair. Female idols, too, continuously prove that it"s not just men that can sport this flashy and fashionable color. So, let"s take a look at which 9 female idols (yes, 9 rather than 8) can pull off crazy pink hair!


Red Velvet"s Irene

When Red Velvet debuted this year with "Happiness," the girl in the pink hair stood out the most to me. She is none other than the leader, Irene. I think the pink colored tips perfectly complement her feminine features and petite frame--it adds just the right amount of edge to her pretty-girl look.

Sooyoung of Girls’ Generation is praised for her wonderful acting in the recent Wednesday-Thursday drama, “Spring Days of My Life.”

Recently, Sooyoung’s acting has been receiving a lot of attention for her portrayal of Lee Bomyi as emotions and tensions run high on the recent episode of “Spring Days of My Life.” A writer from TV Report Korea wrote a spotlight on Sooyoung as an actress, complimenting her - “Her acting is real. She is an ‘actress’ rather than an ‘idol who acts.’”

Lee Bomyi, is a woman given a second chance at life. When she meets Kang Dongha, played by Kam Woosung, the two begin to fall for each other, but a tragic secret puts their love in jeopardy when it comes to light. This heartbreaking story of star-crossed lovers is guaranteed to be full of tear-jerking moments that will tug on every viewers heart strings

[HanCinema”s Idol Actors] Lee Seung-gi

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

Lee"s first leading role was in 2009"s "Shining Inheritance" as the quintessential prickly male lead, Seon Woo-hwan. Lee showed an affinity for the camera even though he tended to overact, especially during scenes of anger. This habit trended through many of his dramas save for his latest, "You"re Surrounded". The emotions are clear, but seem overwrought, as if geared for the live stage rather than in front of a camera. This is most evident in "Shining Inheritance" and tones down in each subsequent leading role that he landed. Again, it is Lee"s earnest portrayals of his characters that make him so well-liked despite any flaws he may have as an actor. It"s his appeal that keeps the role offers coming."My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" from 2010 was Lee"s real breakthrough as an actor. He worked beside from the very nuanced actress Sin Min-ah from whom he learned a lot

Roundtable: Sicapocalypse Now Written by Seoulbeats On October 4, 2014

So much has happened in such a short period of time that it’s hard to make sense of our emotions. As the story unfolded, these were our reactions from the time Jessica released her first official statement disclosing her side of the story. What was your initial reaction to reports of Jessica being booted from SNSD? What were your feelings like as more facts were revealed? What’s to become of the Nation’s Girl Group?

Gaya: I actually understand SM‘s decision to drop Jessica: accommodating her promoting just one more album may have been possible, but I get it if SM wasn’t interested in keeping her around for that long. But if that was the case, why have her renew her contract and then dump her weeks later? That just doesn’t sit right with me
