MY LOVABLE GIRL, EPISODE 8

Hyun Wook plants one on Se Na

RECAP
So Hyun Wook told her not to do anything with anyone at ANA, and Se Na asked if that included him. In this episode, he tells her that she has to do things with him because there are no trainees that don"t interact with the CEO. Later, at the retreat, Hyun Wook"s stepmom gets a call from her private investigator, who sends a picture of her husband meeting another woman. She goes back to Seoul, gives back his ring, and leaves him. Se Na gets another visit from Shi Woo, and this time accepts his gift and firmly friend-zones him.

The next day, Shi Woo and ANA are preparing for his debut. Hyun Wook takes Dal Bong (the dog) to the vet

My Lovable Girl, Episodes 1-6: Art Imitating Reality Written by Joyce On October 9, 2014

I don’t think any drama has gotten so much hate for its casting, weeks before the drama even hit the small screens. Idol-actors castings are usually unfavourably received, and considering that three-quarters of the main cast are idols, My Lovable Girl (or She’s so Lovable) probably received three times the normal amounts of downvotes right from the start.

And to a certain extent, the critical reaction is not unwarranted. The subpar acting is something to cringe at, and it doesn’t help that the script is terribly cheesy and one-dimensional. Some dialogues are goosebumps-inducing, and romantic music chimes in at certain scenes to attempt to drill into my mind the non-existent chemistry between the lead couple

Hyun Bin Plays Two Sides Of A Love Triangle In The Same Drama

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

 

If a character falls in love with another character"s two distinctive personalities, does that constitute a love triangle? Hyun Bin is about to find out when he returns to the small screen in a romantic comedy tentatively titled "Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde."

The 20-episode comedy will be based on the Lee Choong Ho"s webtoon titled "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Hyun Bin will play a radio disc jockey and writer who has two very different personalities. He"s aloof and cold during the day and warm and charming at night. This makes it more likely that his night personality will inspire people to fall in love with him. But one lucky woman manages to fall in love with both sides of him.

The character who falls in love with both his personalities has not yet been cast

MY LOVELY GIRL, EPISODE 5


Hyun Wook struggles with his tinnitus.

RECAP
Jae Young is starting a new company and has offered the boys in Infinite Power a spot there. Bandmate Rae Hoon also kicks Shi Woo out of the band. Hyun Wook dispatches agents to find Shi Woo, who turned off his cellphone and is missing. Se Na still does not get on well with the other artists, who have ostracized her. Hyun Wook is driving when a lane change prompts another driver to honk at him, and somehow this sound incapacitates him for a time (we saw this before with the monthly review). Hae Yoon confronts Jae Young about his actions, but he is unapologetic; he feels that Hyun Wook has stolen his woman (Hae Yoon) and the top spot at the company

HIGH SCHOOL: LOVE ON, EPISODE 9

Seul Bi tries to console Woo Hyun

RECAP
Seul Bi walks away with Sunbae and at the last minute, stops and tells him she"s not going back. She takes Woo Hyun back to the shop, but all he does is sleep. Later that night, Seul Bi talks to Sunbae, asking to see Grandma one more time. He says it"s beyond his power. Sung Yeol sees her talking to apparently thin air and asks her who she was talking to. Obviously, she tells him nothing. Friends visit the shop the next morning, but nothing rouses Woo Hyun. Sung Yeol comes by; he and Seul Bi look at recipes, prepare food together, and share a moment. Then two loan sharks burst into the shop and start ransacking the place. Apparently Woo Hyun"s father used the shop as collateral for a high-interest loan, but didn"t pay it back

Series Overview: Fated to Love You is a Bundle of Laughter and Tears Written by Joyce On September 20, 2014

On the back of the finale of Fated to Love You, I’d like to say that the show will stay in my memory as the drama with the best character interpretations. It features the reunion of Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara, who starred together in Successful Story of a Bright Girl ten years ago. While Fated‘s plot is nothing out of the ordinary, the characters are really what steal the show and cement it as one of my favourite dramas ever.

If you’ve seen the Taiwanese version, you’d have a good sense of the plot – a one night stand, a pregnancy, a forced marriage, and then, a miscarriage. Cue angst with a capital ‘a’

“My Spring Day” – First Impressions

By in News posted Oct September 20th, 2014 No comments

“My Spring Day” premiered on MBC last week and I was very surprised by its setting. Initially, I found the couple’s pairing a bit odd due to the considerable age gap. However, thinking about it, a rookie actress could find more experience if she plays and learns alongside an experienced actor.

The story uses an interesting concept of cellular memory which is a medical hypothesis implying the recipients’ personalities are inherited from their donors. Will this show be able to make its way into the top ranking charts? Let’s find out.

About the cast

Lee Bom Yi (Sooyoung) is a clinical dietitian working in Hae Gil hospital and is dedicated to living her life to the fullest. She is very down-to-earth and her morals are well-placed

It’s Okay, That’s Love, Episodes 5-8: Couples, Consent and Coitus Written by Alolika On September 19, 2014

“They did it! They did it! They did it!! Yeah!”

But I am not rejoicing because “it” – my juvenile euphemism for “sex” – was the most anticlimactic resolution to Hae-soo’s (Gong Hyo-jin) sexual anxiety (no pun intended). However, before I get down to the issues I have with the eighth episode in particular, let me broadly outline the problems the narrative is developing as the show continues (or considering my delay, the show has continued).

What felt like a strained connection between the two focuses of the drama – psychiatry and love – is now at one level, completely wrenched apart and at another level, intermingled with the purpose of sentimentalization
