“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

It is confirmed that broadcast station ABC is going to air their remake of Korea"s hit drama "Man From The Stars" (which stars Jun Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun) and the production is already in progress.

Quoted from The Hollywood Reporter,

"Based on the Korean format, My Love explores why a superhero has to save the world and asks why he can"t save just one girl. ABC"s take is described as epic supernatural love story about a world-famous actress, Lark, and her anti-social neighbor, James, who happens to be from another planet. Disillusioned by the pettiness of human nature, and a resident of Earth for the past several hundred years, James has a centuries-old rule that he will never use his abilities to intervene in the lives of the people around him. But when he gets a premonition that the infuriatingly self-centered but compelling Lark is going to be murdered, James finds himself drawn into her chaotic life and falling deeply in love — just as he finally has the chance to return to his home in the stars

Little to No Love for Spica.S’s “Give Your Love” Written by Camiele On September 17, 2014

It seems the latter part of 2014 begins the season of office fantasies. Sunny Hill returned with their ode to the work week romance, “Monday Blues,” and now we’ve got Spica.S, the “sexy side” of the powerhouse vocal group SPICA, giving us much face and fashion with their latest MV, “Give Your Love.”

Spica.S (meaning “Spica Special”) is the first foray into subunit territory for the vocal group. However, instead of being a specialty group consisting of only a few of the members, Spica.S seems to be a means for the girls to express their more daring, sensual sides. The only member who opted out, so to say, was Kim Bo Ah, who has taken the time to concentrate on a solo project

John Park’s “U” — An Addiction to Love? Written by Laura On September 13, 2014

A haunting piano melody resounds. Illuminated by harsh lighting, a young man cocks his head as he stares relentlessly into the camera. The movement seems barely human, an impression underlined by his unchanging expression.

Can this be him, the viewer may asks themself — the same young man who strolled around pastel-colored sets just 14 months ago, fumbling to declare his love to his “Baby“? The same wide-eyed, amiable babo who quietly worked his way into some of the most popular variety shows in South Korea over the course of the last year?

Indeed, John Park has returned to the music scene; and what a return it is. His new song “U”, described as a “soul-based UK pop-style song”, certainly adds a new sound to this year’s diverse releases
