The drama world kept our eyes glued to the screen all year round, but it’s time to decide which drama stole the show in 2013.
We’ve divided the year’s dramas into categories by timeslot – Mon/Tues, Wed/Thurs and Fri/Weekend – so be sure to check out each category and, of course, vote!
But choose wisely, because the top drama from each timeslot will advance to the final round, where the drama with the most votes from each category will compete for the title of Mwave′s Drama of the Year.
“Man from the Stars” Episode 1 Recap by drama beans
We begin in 1609, the first year of Gwanghae’s reign during the Joseon era. It’s on August 25 that a mysterious “round, shining flying object” was sighted and logged in the official records; it zoomed overhead with “a thunderous noise” before disappearing into sparks, leaving the skies clear and cloudless.
(This is a real part of historical record, and served as the basis for tvN’s sci-fi-mystery drama Joseon X-Files, which I recommend by the way.)
From “Let It Go” off the Frozen OST, Soyu and JunggiGo’s duet “Some” to Park Wan Kyu’s single for the Empress Ki OST, “Wind Breeze,” music charts have recently begun to look richer in variety. The charts are flush with movie and drama OST tracks, indie band offerings, as well as releases from solo singer-songwriters. The February music charts so far feature a diversity of genres and musicians, leaving one wondering if the idol chart domination of music charts is a thing of the past?
Girls’ Generation’s “Mr. Mr.” becomes our new No. 1 song this week, moving up from No. 3 last week. Carrying the strength of four music show wins in last week’s M!Countdown, KBS Music Bank, MBC’s Music Core and Show Champion, “Mr. Mr.” finally moves up to the top spot and distinguish itself from the rest of the strong competitions. Congratulations to Girls’ Generations.
Moving up two spots to No. 2 is 2NE1’s “Come Back Home.” This song won on SBS Inkigayo last week and prevented “Mr. Mr.” from sweeping all music shows. “Come Back Home” was not yet ranked in M!Countdown yet as of last week, and that explains the gap in scoring between this song and “Mr. Mr.”
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.
Entertainment companies have a significant role when it comes to sculpting their K-Pop idols from head to toe for us to idolize and enjoy. But as a K-Pop fan, it is our guilty pleasure to indulge in the personal lives of our idols to see what they are like when they are off stage. From their silly mistakes and 4-dimensional mindsets to the contrasting personalities on and off stage, we realize that there is much more than what meets the eye when it comes to our favorite K-Pop idols.
As K-Drama fans, we recognize a couple of favorite faces and big names. These are the acting royalty, making up the top tier of Korean Hollywood, constantly being casted and re-casted as protagonists, and basking in the spotlight of our TV/computer screens.
There”s a reason that these actors/actresses 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 acting royalty? Who are the up-and-coming actors/actresses that we can expect to reign in the future? Here are some of allkpop“s choices for 7 K-Drama queens and their successors. Take a look!
The dashing hero reaches out and holds the hands of his beloved. A gentle wind blows. Our captivating heroine with perfect makeup shyly looks up at the charming lead, who has risked life and limb to defeat all sorts of demons to reach this exact moment. Somehow cherry blossoms are falling around them like a flurry of snowflakes, even though there isn’t a cherry blossom tree in sight. The charming couple locks eyes, they move in for the grand finale: the kiss. They inch closer. And we all swoon when the much anticipated lip lock happens as an upbeat OST track plays in the background, signaling the end of a 20-episode run. We feel good. We are content, satisfied that that couple we had been cheering on for weeks has achieved their happily-ever-happy ending. Right? A recent trend in K-dramas explores the other side of the grand finale and the big kiss. What happens, say, when our couple wakes up and realizes that despite all their eloquent and fervent declarations of love, they actually know nothing about each other, perhaps they got married a bit too quickly, or worse, they find out that love might not conquer all. In what I will call “Second Chance K-dramas,” but what others may call “Divorce K-dramas,” the premise is pretty standard: a couple gets divorced but, for various reasons, the story between them isn’t completely finished, and we get to watch as they struggle with both marriage, divorce, and all the messiness therein.

That doesn’t look like a bloody good time, does it? This is the episode where things we’ve come to known start to unravel at our feet. Not only do our characters start to suspect the truth that they’ve told, but I’m starting to doubt some of the things we’ve seen in past episodes. Bad Guys has always hinted at the idea that things are not always what it seems, but now I’m starting to feel like I’ve been tricked into believing events that may or may not have taken place.
On November 29th, the famous R&B duo Fly to the Sky held a concert entitled Masterpiece of the Legends. The fantastic duo held the concert to celebrate their 15th anniversary since debut. Ballad singer Gummy was a guest at the concert which was held at the Pasadena Civic Center, outside of Los Angeles, California.
Before the concert started, Brian and Hwanhee held both a fan meeting and press conference. Fans had the opportunity to win raffle prizes, which included signed CD’s and even a trip to South Korea. Perhaps even more importantly, fans got the chance to shake hands or hug Brian and Hwanhee. The fan meeting also included and Q&A session with fans.
