EPISODE 15 RECAP by Dramabeans
Even after Shinichi receives one of Baek-san’s finishing moves, he continues to fight until a group of Kaya’s henchmen come to fetch him on her orders. Shinichi refuses at first, wanting to finish the fight, but acquiesces immediately when the henchmen show him a mysterious black bag.
Baek-san acts all friendly to Jung-tae after the fight, though Jung-tae’s not too keen on returning the kindness. He promises to repay the debt he owes Baek-san (for saving him from Shinichi), but there’s something darker in that promise—he’s talking revenge.
But Baek-san, none the wiser, tells him that he owes him nothing: “Hwangbang will always protect you.” Oh, you mean when Hwangbang isn’t trying to kill him?
Kaya gets another chance to ask Leader Seol who killed her mother, but instead of answering her directly he tells her about her mother; the way she lived and the way she was loved at Club Shanghai, even though she was the highest female on the yakuza food chain
Chances are, if you’ve heard of SBS variety show “Running Man,” you’ve heard of Lee Kwang Soo, one of the seven principal cast members who is truly one-of-a-kind. From his elaborate antics to shocking betrayals, Lee Kwang Soo proves himself to be a riot – and we have the evidence right here. Read on for the ten reasons why we think he’s just about one of the most hilarious people ever (feel free to add to or disagree with in the comments section below!)
1. Because he looked like this when you first met him
Admit it. You knew he was awesome as soon as he got drenched during his first speech in the opening sequence of Running Man. And don’t get me wrong – you felt bad he was so pitiful, but you can’t help but laugh anyway
Actress Ha Ji Won was born in 1978, the Year of the Horse, so it’s no wonder that she has a special bond with horses.
Ha Ji Won has spent a great deal of time with horses on MBC Monday-Tuesday drama’s “Empress Ki,” having had many horse-riding scenes in the early part of the drama. She recently got back into the saddle five months after her last horseback ride last September.
On the February 24 episode of “Empress Ki” (Episode 32), Ha Ji Won’s Seung Nyang went on a horse riding date with Ta Hwan (Ji Chang Wook) to practice for a hunting competition. She showed off the results of special horse riding training she had received at a riding club, drawing her bow while riding her horse quite professionally.
Action scenes require quite a great deal of practice, and while actors may sometimes choose to use a stunt double to minimize risk, Ha Ji Won generally prefers to choose her own scenes
Super Junior’s Donghae, 4Minute’s Nam Ji Hyun and FTISLAND’s Song Seung Hyun will appear in a new movie project, “Youth Project.”

Film company, InventStone, which produced movies such as “I Love You,” “Grape Candy” and “Aging Family,” was picked to lead the project, with two other film companies, Samgeori Pictures and Little Boy Pictures joining in the planning and development of the project, making this a joint production by the three companies
Yoo In Na sent a love call to Jun Ji Hyun.
Attending the press conference for On Style’s Get It Beauty on February 27 at Conrad Hotel in Yeoui-do, Yoo In Na was asked by the reporters, “Can you name some celebrities you’d like to invite to the program?”
“If I can, I’d like to go visit all the actresses around me to get their beauty advice,” answered Yoo In Na. “I would like to get help from Jun Ji Hyun, Hwang Jung Eum and IU, who I worked on the same drama with.”
Yoo In Na currently acts as Yoo Se Mi in SBS hit drama You Who Came From the Stars, starring Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun.

KBS2TV’s latest weekend drama “Wonderful Days” has quickly proven to be a hit.

MBC’s upcoming drama Hotel King brought together the cast members for its script reading.
The PD and the cast members, including Lee Dong Wook, Lee Da Hae, 2AM’s Seulong and others got together for two rounds of script reading, which took place at MBC’s Dream Center in Ilsan and Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong in the middle of February.
Before the script reading took place, Kim Jin Min CP (chief producer) said, “We’re going to put our full trust in the staff and writer,” and Kim Dae Jin PD said, “I hope we can all enjoy our start. I’m going to do my best.”
Lee Dong Wook commented, “I will try to do well, instead of working hard,” while Lee Da Hae said, “I usually don’t get nervous, but I’m nervous here now. I think I can film comfortably thanks to my senior and junior actors
On the bus, Chun-soo is dead asleep as Jin-hee positions his head back on her shoulder. Chang-min pulls up next to the bus in his car at a stoplight, but neither Chang-min nor Jin-hee see each other. The bus jerks Chun-soo awake and Jin-hee feigns sleep. He nudges her awake, with an “Asleep already?” and she makes a big show of yawning and stretching.As the two order breakfast, Chun-soo tells Jin-hee that she should go do medical volunteer work on an island somewhere. “I think that’s the best fit for you,” he says. Jin-hee replies, “I’d like that. But I’d like to finish my internship first.” She hesitates for a moment before asking, “What’s going to happen to me now?” Chun-soo’s answer is noncommittal, and not particularly comforting: “That depends on your fate.”When the restaurant ajumma mistakenly assumes that Jin-hee is Chun-soo’s “pretty wife,” both Jin-hee and Chun-soo share an awkward moment
Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of Shirokuma Cafe, also called Polar Bear’s Cafe in good olde English. It’s one of those daily life snapshot shows, one that doesn’t have some sort of complex or deep overarching story plot. Instead it tells the tale of a town where talking animals and people live together in relative harmony.
I bring this up because the show has given me two interesting thoughts to dwell on.
sort of reminds me of the seven Penguin sisters in the anime (Maybe it’s because of AOA’s miniskirt album photo?). There is quite a lack of “Feel Good” content in the K-Pop music world.
Obviously can’t discuss both items so lets pick the most important one to ramble on this week.

EPISODE 12: “No matter what side of yourself you show, I’ll stay beside you” recap by drama beans
After their argument in the middle of the street, Wan follows Joo-yeon ten steps behind her the rest of the way home. He sighs aloud that the kind of person who’d put her first is right by her side…but she can’t see him.
He regrets his jealous rant earlier about not wanting to lose her to Tae-yoon, realizing that she’s already upset and he just made things worse for her. “I should’ve just smiled, ‘I love you.’”
She eventually stops and tells him not to follow her, though he points out that they live together, so how could he not go in the same direction? She turns to go the other way, and he apologizes for everything, saying it was his fault
Making viewers laugh while sitting on a bed of nails, Super Junior-M’s Henry became the new hole soldier on MBC’s Real Man.
On February 16, Henry joined Real Man, experiencing the Korean military for the first time. With the not-so-helpful tips from his Super Junior members, Henry believed the military would be easy, even thinking the filming would take place on a set instead of a real army base.
However, once he set foot on base, the scary trainers with the red hats, who Kangin mentioned were going to be Henry’s new managers in the army, made sure to wipe that smile off Henry’s face.
The army doctor, who looked at the basic healthy examination for Henry, noted that his first impression of Henry was like dealing with an elementary student
Today is Valentine"s Day
You know what that means. Chocolates, flowers, teddy bears... Well.... if we had a significant other, maybe.

HE WAS TOO EARLY
Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae will be working together again for the first time in 8 years in the new MBC drama “Hotel King.” The last time they worked together was in the 2005 drama “My Girl.” This is also the first time back at MBC in awhile for both actors. For Lee Dong Wook, it’s his first drama with MBC since 2008, when he starred in “La Dolce Vita,” and for Lee Da Hae, it is her first comeback with MBC in three years, since 2011’s “Miss Ripley.”
In “Hotel King,” Lee Dong Wook plays Cha Jae Wan, the manager of Hotel Ciel. Cha Jae Won is called the “hotel monster,” a cold-hearted manager who doesn’t show emotion, but carries with him a pain-filled past. Playing Amone, the only daughter of Hotel Ciel’s CEO and the heiress to the company, is Lee Da Hae
Emergency Couple Episode 3 - 4 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This week offered so much depth and interesting information about what really went wrong between Chang Min and Jin Hee. I know there’s more to see and we personally can’t wait to discover more. When two passionate individuals collide, we can expect a thrill like no other.
Tessieroo: Jin Hee inadvertently shocks Chang Min, he falls to the ground unconscience. Cheon-Soo rushes to his side. He’s placed on a gurney and his shirt is cut open to place electrodes on his chest. *stares, slack-jawed at Jin Hyuk’s massive chest*
Leila: Just as I thought, shocking Chang Min wasn’t intentional. I guess because of the urgency of the moment, all Jin Hee could think of is saving Chang Min
There are always too many drama specials that go by each year to keep up with all of them, but I’m definitely going to tune in for this one. It’s a sageuk one-act short for KBS’s 2014 Drama Special series called Funeral Singer, and Kim Yoo-jung (Gold Rainbow) is headlining. She’ll be reuniting with Seo Joon-young (Unemployed Romance) four years after they were both in Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child. I really adore them both so I’m excited to see them in something new, even if one hour is way too short.
The drama special comes from PD Lee Eun-jin of Anticipate Love and Don’t Worry I’m A Ghost, and is scripted by a newbie writer. It tells the story of a young girl who was born into a family of funeral singers in the Joseon era (they’re the people who wail the sorrowful song in the funeral procession through town for noblemen’s deaths)
Chu Sa Rang is definitely not an easy girl to please!
On the February 9 episode of KBS 2TV‘s “Superman Returns,” Chu Sung Hoon and his daughter paid a visit to world star Rain‘s practice room and went out for a meal together.
The singer had prepared a Minnie Mouse plushie for the young Mickey Mouse lover, and confessed that he is a big fan of her. He also made a request to turn down the volume of music as Chu Sa Rang entered the building, showing his affection for the adorable girl.
As the three moved to a restaurant, Rain revealed he reserved a table at a Korean restaurant, as he heard Chu Sa Rang loves seaweed and Korean food. He then handed her lunch boxes filled with grapes and seaweed, which are some of her favorite snacks

Age of Feeling: Episode 8 recap by drama beans
In order to help Jung-tae learn how to fight against swords, Boss Hwang takes him to the gibang to meet Ajusshi Choi. Though Jung-tae’s known him for a while, he seems unaware of Ajusshi’s past as a guard for the Korean Empire (which ended in 1910 when Japan annexed Korea).
So Ajusshi Choi takes Jung-tae under his tutelage, and despite what I thought, Jung-tae isn’t trying to learn how to use a sword, but to fight unarmed against one. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but… why wouldn’t he want to use a sword even just as a shield instead of relying on his squishy human flesh for protection?
But Jung-tae answers that question by learning Ajusshi Choi’s lessons with lightning-quick accuracy, and in the end, wins the fight with his fists
