Vietnamese Brides in Korean Dramas and Films Written by Thuy On December 31, 2014
Do any of our drama fan readers recognize this scene?
It’s from SBS‘s drama “Modern Farmer“, where the mother is lecturing her drunken son about getting married. Written in the photo is the Vietnamese subtitle that says:
If you keep drinking everyday like that, even if you go to Vietnam you will not find a bride.
The scene was considered an offense toward Vietnamese women and angered Vietnamese online communities enough for the photo to be spread like wildfire over Facebook. It got to the point that SBS has run into some serious troubles with the Korean Consul General in Vietnam for its lack of consideration. The station has stepped down and apologized, and Modern Farmer continued to air normally, but the story may run deeper than that.
Ho-gu breaks down in great sobs at the thought that they may have sent Geum-dong away with bad people, as Do-hee hides her tears and Kang-chul sits stone-faced. Ho-gu grabs Coach and drags him out of the apartment to help him find Geum-dong, refusing to give up. Do-hee asks Kang-chul if he thinks those were bad people, but Kang-chul just asks in return if his answer would change anything.
Out in the street, Coach admits that he didn’t really know the adoptive parents, that he just met them at a cafe. Is he saying that he sold Geum-dong?? He tells Ho-gu that it wasn’t a physical cafe, but a website, and Ho-gu goes to an internet cafe to do some research.
YJ is furious- how dare she says San’s name? YJ begins to cry.
DH’s mother brings out the pictures of San, alive, healthy, and well. YJ’s hands shake as she looks as the pictures, and even DH can’t shake that expression off his face.
“There’s no way I wouldn’t know that San was living,” YJ cries, still half in denial. DH’s mom says that it was all for YJ and DH, that it would’ve been impossible for YJ to raise San, that it would’ve been impossible to do anything for San with that red string (indicating YJ’s criminal record) around her ankle. She says San is growing well, but YJ doesn’t want to hear her excuses.
EPISODE 13 RECAP
by La Petite
Se Joo walks into the meeting room, introduces himself as Miranda’s grandson who inherits her blood and money but there is one thing that cannot be inherited and that is a challenging mind. He delivers an ambitious speech of his plans for making YBS into a media station that keeps challenging itself and into a media conglomerate that is recognized worldwide.
Mi Rae tries to get a grip of herself in the ladies after getting officially rejected by Shin, Writer Bae walks in and queries her regarding her Christmas date. Meanwhile, PD Lee wakes up from his little drooling nap (yes, there is drool on the desk) and sees Se Joo looking down on him, frowning. LOL. PD Lee obviously has no idea and continues to mock Se Joo but changes tone straight away and shuns Se Joo aside when the vice director enters the office. Oppa enters seconds later and pays his respect at Se Joo awkwardly and using Jondaemal. PD Lee thinks it was some kind of joke and takes him awhile to grasp the truth. Mi Rae is the last to enter the office and sees Se Joo.

25. SHINee “Dream Girl”
Label: SM Entertainment
Release Date: February 19th, 2013
SHINee“s been a busy, busy group this year, knocking out comeback after comeback with very little time for breaks in between- so much so that it seems like “Dream Girl“, their first video of 2013, came out much earlier than it actually did. The video features all five guys navigating a strange, topsy-turvy dream world while chasing a faceless girl in a painting through rooms where time and gravity have no meaning.
Do you think SHINee‘s “Dream Girl” and Toheart‘s “Delicious” sound similar? It seems the four members of SHINee (Jonghyun, Minho, Taemin, and Onew) think so as they mercilessly tease fellow member and one-half of Toheart, Key, in the support message video uploaded to SMTOWN‘s Youtube channel.
The adorable and funny video is filmed hidden-camera style, showing the members of SHINee gathered around a table backstage discussing the collaborative project duo Toheart. Member Jonghyun starts off the conversation asking what the team name of Key and Woohyun’s duo is. Minho jokingly gives the name Park Ji Sung, the soccer player who is often described as having two hearts due to his incredible stamina and endurance. Jonghyun seems to cautiously believe this at first before Taemin and Minho say in Korean what translates to English as “two hearts.”
Infinite”s L, also known as Kim Myungsoo, has been cast in a new role. He will have a part in the upcoming SBS drama “My Lovely Girl,” which also stars Rain.
True to life, he will play a flower boy singer, and although several singers will appear in the drama, his role will be an important one. The drama is also notable because it marks Rain”s small screen comeback.
It won”t be L”s first time playing a musician in a drama as he played an indie band member who goes on to be an idol in “Shut Up Flower Boy Band.”
Hyuna Rules in “Red,” But I’m Not Ululating Written by Gaya On August 3, 2014
The colour red has often been considered as a chromatic symbol of strength, boldness and sexuality. Given these connotations, it’s no surprise that Cube Entertainment would think it the perfect colour for Hyuna‘s latest comeback. “Red” seeks to consolidate Hyuna’s brand, using the hue as shorthand for the qualities she embodies… And does a pretty good job of it. But does Cube keep up with her?

1. Almost Paradise – T-Max from Boys Over Flowers
Gag Concert and Foreigners: Not A Good Mix Written by Gaya On August 17, 2014
Gag Concert has a grand history as the longest running comedy show on South Korean television. Beginning in 1999, Gag Concert has managed to keep up with a rotating cast of comedians and new and newer skits. As a sketch comedy show, Gag Concert comprises of “corners” featuring certain scenarios, like Bboom Entertainment and Discoveries of Life. These skits have been retired, though, to make way for new material. And that new material is this (Note: video may not be viewable in your country):
Esna Steps Into the Spotlight with “I, I Love You” Written by Andy On August 22, 2014
Esna may, or may not, be a familiar name to K-pop aficionados. She’s the brain behind “Some,” “Without You,” and “Special Love.” She’s written songs for Mamamoo, 4Minute, and MR.MR; she’s also worked with Wheesung, K.Will, Geeks, and Phantom, and even participated in the OST for hit drama Heirs.
(Photo : SBS, MBC) Melody Day sings for “Fated to Love You,” while “I Feel You” appears on the “It”s Okay, That”s Love” soundtrack.
K-Pop trio Melody Day lend their voices to part seven of the “Fated to Love You” original soundtrack, as the drama draws to a close.
“Fated to Love You” utilized whimsical plot elements to present a unique adaptation of the 2008 Taiwanese hit drama.
“You’re My Everything” captures the emotionality of the lead in to the penultimate episode , as Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk) and Ellie Kim (Jang Na Ra) attempt to decide if they are truly destined to be together.
“It’s Okay, That’s Love” continues to deliver a non-judgemental approach to mental illness while embracing those who are phobic of falling in love. The relationship dynamic between Jang Jae Yeol (Jo In Sung) and his brother, Jang Jae Beom (Yang Ik June) continues to be one of the most intriguing in the drama.
Psychiatric resident Ji Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) continues to deliver the image of a strong female character, which is contradictory to the average Korean drama.
Hong Dae Kwang sings “I Feel You” for part five of the original soundtrack.
Ulala Session also appear on the “It’s Okay, That’s Love” soundtrack with “Love Fiction.” Part one of the full drama soundtrack was released on August 21.
Sweet Sorrow appear on the first part of the “Discovery of Love” soundtrack. Actress Jung Yu Mi from “I Need Romance 2012” stars as furniture designer Han Yeo Reum in “Discovery of Love,” which plays on the same concepts as the “I Need Romance” series. Sung Joon , who recently starred in “I Need Romance 3” is included in the cast as the seemingly dutiful boyfriend, Nam Ha Jin.
“Discovery of Love” gets an extra boost from Eric Mun of the legendary K-Pop group, Shinhwa. Eric portrays Kang Tae Ha, the ex-boyfriend who shakes up the tidy life of Han Yeo Reum.

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.
