Sword-fighting skills can come in handy for an actor, especially if he wants to try a role in a historical drama. But that does not mean they are easy to learn.

When TVXQ"s Jung Yunho first tried using a sword in rehearsals for his upcoming drama "The Night Watchman," the experience frightened him.

"When I was filming a sword scene with an actual sword, it was scarier than I thought. Looking at the hay getting cut down all at once made me surprised," Jung said.

He arrived on set early to practice his sword skills and got a few pointers from his co-star Jung Il Woo, who previously brandished a sword in the drama "The Moon Embracing The Sun." In that drama he played a prince and practiced his swordsmanship with his royal half brother, played by Kim Soo Hyun

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "Gabdong - The Serial Killer"

By in posted Oct Comments off

Despite the existence of plenty of logical flaws and unresolved issues, the series managing to stay focused to a bigger degree than such stories usually do is commendable. It is also worth noting that the female characters here get good development and a position in the plot that goes beyond their romantic interests, the romance part also not overshadowing the main plot and appeal. In a series which could have easily turned them into damsels in distress, without agency or part in the crime side of things, this was a pleasant surprise.

This work could have been a lot more had it been shorter or perhaps spent more time with its characters than its complicated crime solving part, but as it stands, it is still much better a series and much truer to its genre and plot than average. Given how difficult it seems to be for a show trying something different to succeed in it, "Gabdong - The Serial Killer" remaining a solid series throughout and leaving the viewer with some food for thought make it a good addition to the evolution of Korean drama and hopefully an encouraging attempt to other creators who have different things to say

The top 5 K-drama Villains We Love To Hate

By in posted Oct Comments off

Wrapping up You Are All Surrounded and reflecting on the perfidy of Assemblyman Yoo, I realize I have become completely spoiled. I am used to my K-drama villains so ruthless, evil and crazy, that a man with a 20 year slow climb to power got a “meh, I guess he’s bad.” K-dramas have a wide variety of villains and some you love to hate. Sometimes you just need to stand up and cheer when these Baddies get their due. Here are five villains we love to hate:

5) Lee Hye Young as Jun Pyo’s mom in Boys Over Flowers.

Face it: you all hate her almost as much as you love Pretty Lee Min Ho. Jun Pyo eventually won us over, getting over his jerky, entitled self in the wake of Jan Di’s awesomeness. His mom? Well, Jun Pyo got his tendency to run roughshod over everyone and strut around like the Lord of Creation from somewhere
