 EPISODE 6 RECAP by drama beans

So our married couple spends their first night together with Yul staying up to work while Da-jung sleeps. The following morning, Da-jung encourages a reluctant Man-se to attend kindergarten. She promises him a playdate, but a stern word from his father gets him to grudgingly head off to school.

Calling her a worry (geok-jung), Yul sighs in exasperation and removes a note attached to Da-jung’s back (another one of Na-ra’s pranks). He tells her to stay out of trouble since worrying about national affairs gives him enough of a headache and to stop wearing the hanbok.

He also assigns her to keep a daily log on his children—their thoughts, concerns, behaviors, and so on

A secret never stay hidden forever, the truth always prevails. No matter how hard people are trying to hide their secrets, their problems, sooner or later, people will discover them. For Jae Hak and Eun Jin; they know they cannot hide their relationship forever; they’re not naive but obviously they don’t realize that Mi Kyung has already found out about their “humane relationship”. People say the quiet ones usually are the ones who’ll attack and cause extensive damages; so they’d better get ready because Mi Kyung will do anything she can to “torture” them.

One Warm Word Episode 1 Recap by Beatuscorner:

After an influx of marriage/affair/divorce dramas this year, my expectation level for SBS newest Mondays & Tuesdays drama One Warm Word (Kind Words) was extremely low. Moreover, the writer’s previous drama Can We Get Married was pretty hard to digest (for me) that I stopped watching on episode 7, it was too realistic for my liking. So I embraced the first episode of One Warm Word with extreme caution (ha!). Surprisingly, the first episode surpassed my expectations – it quickly introduced the main characters and their different perspectives (& approaches) towards marriage, divorce and affairs

Mi-rae’s Choice: Episode 15 RECAP by Drama Beans

Se-joo belatedly reveals himself to be Mi-rae’s savior, explaining that he simply wanted to approach her as a man, nothing more. With that, he asks her to accept his feelings. At her silence, he slips the ring on to her finger and hugs her.

Having signed the contract, Shin shows up to work at NTN the next day. He overhears a few employees arguing, but the pretty VP tells him not to worry about it and leads him into his swanky new office.

Se-joo hits yet another roadblock in his plans, so he seeks Grandma’s help with acquiring investments. She notices the ring on his finger (couple rings, perhaps?) and agrees to help, on the grounds that he marries the girl of her choice

Hi, another great episode to share with. Enjoy!


ES walks into airport to see R hugging T. She turns to leave, but Tan sees her and calls out to her. “Cha Eun Sang, stop right there.”

Eun Sang turns around. T says bye to R, and walks over to ES, R completely forgotten now. T yells at ES for not calling. He wants her number from her. ES looks at R. She says to T that she thanked him and already said bye so don’t leave his fiancé like that to ask her something like that. ES walks past T and R. R looks at T, realizing more how much T likes ES already.

Inside the plane, R goes to E who is filling out the entry form. R is waiting for ES to finishing filling out the form. R says to ES that she is getting a sad hunch that they will see each other again. ES says they will not. R says, “You’re saying that because you don’t know Tan

Can ‘Tomorrow Cantabile’ Be A Successful Music Drama?

By in News posted Oct October 17th, 2014 No comments


The new KBS 2 TV Monday Tuesday drama "Tomorrow Cantabile" premiered this Monday on October 13, 2014. From its title, it is evident that the new KBS 2 TV Monday Tuesday drama "Tomorrow Cantabile" is a remake version of the popular Japanese drama "Nodame Cantabile," which is a drama about orchestra. Main actor Joo Won and actress Shim Eun Kyung played a role of an orchestra composer and a pianist. However, the drama seemed to be lacking to be classified as a well made music drama. When compared with good precedents such as the MBC drama "Beethoven Virus" and, more recently, the cable channel JTBC drama "Secret Love Affair," the new KBS 2 TV Monday Tuesday drama "Tomorrow Cantabile" seems to be lacking in the characters" musical talent. Of course, the drama has only aired its first two episodes and has a lot more to show

[Album Review] Ji Eun – “25”

By in News posted Oct October 14th, 2014 No comments

JI EUN - 25

About 3 weeks ago, SECRET member Ji Eun released her single "Don"t Look At Me Like That." The MV had a mysterious numeral at the end: "25." Well, at least we know what that means now as she has just dropped her new album with that title. Near the end of September, she uploaded a pic onto her Instagram and wrote, "25. Now it"s the age where I know things. Look forward to the new project," giving us the idea behind the album.

The album opens with the upbeat, short intro song "Janus." While the tune is fairly epic, the lyrics are a bit confusing. Janus is the Roman god of beginnings, transitions, doorways, and endings. He is portrayed in art as having two faces. While the title itself would make sense (as it is the beginning track), the lyrics seem to indicate more pliability than two-faced-ness -- such as "I can be anything you want

When K-Drama Actors Play Classical Musicians

By in News posted Oct September 29th, 2014 No comments


It takes a special kind of actor to attempt playing a classical musician. Even if the actor can already play a classical instrument, it"s unlikely that he or she can play at the performance level their characters are said to have achieved. So the actor has to learn his part and his music.

Joo Won is about to play Cha Yoo Jin, the perfectionist music student who dreams of becoming a conductor in the drama "Cantabile Tomorrow," previously called "Nodame Cantabile." Based on the Japanese manga, which has inspired both animated and live action productions, the drama takes place in a music school. Cha Yoo Jin plays the violin and the piano.

To convincingly pull of his role, Joo Won practiced the correct conducting posture non-stop for about five months

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

Two of this year"s breakout stars have been chosen to host the 2014 Seoul International Drama Awards. Actors Shin Sung Rok and Jin Se Yeon have been confirmed as masters of ceremonies after impressing audiences with their varied performances during the last year.

Shin Sung Rok first impressed audiences as the cold-hearted antagonist in the sci-fi romance "You Who Came From The Stars."

Then Shin Sung Rok did a complete turnaround and played the sweet supportive entertainment agency CEO in "Trot Lovers."

Although Shin has played both good guys and villains in several dramas and films, he considers himself primarily a musical theater star

When Drama Leads Have A Huge Age Difference

By in News posted Oct August 26th, 2014 No comments


Kim So Hyun is the latest actress to star in a drama that features a huge age difference between the leads. The 15-year-old recently discussed what it was like to work with her co-star Chun Jung Myung, who will soon be 34. She was asked what it was like to work with her much-older co-star in "Reset."

They got along well, she said at a press conference for the drama, and it was not at all awkward.

"I was surprised to find he was 19 years older," she said. "I do not feel that at all. I look mature for my age and Chun Jung Myung has a baby face. I don"t think people will sense an age gap when they view us."

In "Reset," Kim So Hyun plays two roles. One of them is Chun Jung Myung"s first love, but he loved her when he was 19

Breaking Up In A K-Drama Is Hard To Do

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


Breaking up is hard to do-especially in a k-drama. Lately, several k-dramas have focused on couples getting back together after a break-up or divorce. A recurring theme in k-dramas is that some couples are fated to be together and no matter how they try to avoid each other they were destined to meet. And in some cases that fate is so strong that it will survive a break-up or even a divorce.

These dramas may also reflect the rising rates of divorce around the world and in Korea. As sad as break-ups and divorces can be in real life, it"s nice to see that k-drama characters can resolve their differences and reconcile.

In the past year viewers have enjoyed the comic antics of couples that broke up then made up in "Emergency Couple" and "Cunning Single Lady
