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’

ABC to remake Korea”s hit drama “Man From The Stars” for US viewers

By in News posted Oct September 19th, 2014 No comments


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

3 Taiwanese Dramas That Need Korean Remakes Stat

3 Taiwanese Dramas That Need Korean Remakes Stat Written by Lo On September 18, 2014

Everything has a secret, even K-pop and the world it opens for people. Korean music leads to Korean dramas. Appearances in Japan introduce fans to J-pop and anime. Anime leads to manga and J-dramas. Of course, you can start with any of those things and find your way around that whole web. But there’s one thing that often eludes fans, an island unto itself, cut off from the Hallyu wave: Taiwan. More specifically, Taiwanese dramas.

Taiwan has as long a history with dramas as Korea but has tended to import rather than export entertainment. The result is a entertainment culture that has been influenced by other cultures and has evolved as a result but hasn’t influenced those same cultures in return. Thus, T-dramas have a different set of usual mores and rules — college settings far outpace high schools, tones are closer to reality, and they’re far more risqué — than Korean ones

7 K-Drama Kings and their Successors

By in News posted Oct September 17th, 2014 No comments
As K-Drama fans, we instantly recognize a couple of favorite faces and big names. These are the acting royalty, making up the top tier of Korea"s version of Hollywood, constantly being casted and re-casted as protagonists and basking in the spotlight on our TV/computer screens.

There"s a reason that these actors are always snagging the big roles; they bring life to their characters with a certain style and flair. But as they grow older and move on to take on more mature roles, we have to ask, who will be the second generation of acting royalty? Who are the up-and-coming actors that we can expect to reign in the future? The current princes who can claim the future vacant thrones.


Last time, allkpop rounded up a list of 7 top actresses and their second generation counterparts. Now, here are some of allkpop"s choices for 7 K-Drama Kings and their successors

Chinese online movie “The Heirs from the Stars” (“来自星星的继承者们“) has come forward refuting accusations of plagiarism that say that it is simply a combination of popular Korean dramas “The Heirs” and “My Love from the Stars.”

At a production press conference on September 16 in Beijing, the director of the Chinese film said that “The Heirs from the Stars” has nothing to do with the two Korean dramas and that the scenario had been out even before “The Heirs” and “My Love from the Stars” were aired.

The director said, “The title was decided upon simply for the commercial and buzz appeal.”

“Many might point fingers, but if people who watch the movie enjoy themselves, that is enough,” the director said, also reiterating the creativity of the movie and mentioning the possibility of a sequel
