Joseon Gunman, Episodes 15-22: Wrapping Up The Ends Written by Joyce On September 14, 2014

So Joseon Gunman finally comes to an end, after a two-episode extension. And the one question I asked myself at the end was, how many people died?

Let’s see — Hye-won died, Merchant Choi died, Ho-kyung died, Adminstrator Jung died, Kanemaru died, Sang-chu died. While such a bloodbath usually serve no purpose other than to make an impression on the audience, I appreciate that all these deaths had a narrative purpose and motivation for it.

For me, Hye-won’s death was just — oof — crushing to watch. Her character especially shined in the first portion of the drama, where she was an independent and confident woman, capable of making her own fate

Mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Song Ga Yeon shared a touching story about her personal life on the latest episode of SBS’ “Roommate.”

On the August 24 episode of the show, Lee Dong Wook, Jo Se Ho, and Song Ga Yeon traveled to the sportswoman’s hometown located on Jeju Island.

While hiking up the famous Halla Mountain, the fighter opened up about memories of her late father, saying, “I started thinking about many old memories [during this trip]. My father was a warm person and only cared for his daughter.”

“When I was in sixth grade of elementary school, we had difficulties at home, and while I knew that my father loved me, something felt different. He changed after that,” she revealed, and continued, “But I could not help him

Joseon Gunman, Episodes 5-14: Gunning for Revenge Written by Joyce On August 20, 2014

Joseon Gunman is practically synonymous with Lee Jun-ki, serving as an extension of his action-filled resume. The more I watch, the more amazed I am how how far he has come since his My Girl days, carving a niche for himself as an action thriller star.

Disclaimer: Spoilers ahead.

After the first four episodes laid the groundwork for his revenge motive, the darker plot and tone starts to really kick in from there onwards. Yoon-kang (Lee Jun-ki) doesn’t disappoint as a lead character, bringing to the plate an intricately woven transformation from a carefree nobleman to a gunman full of vengeance, equipped with a occasionally questionable moral compass

Actress Park Si Yeon will return to dramaland in the fall, playing a single mother in the upcoming drama "The Greatest Marriage."

At the trial Park Si Yeon"s doctor testified that he originally prescribed the drug to help her cope with the disabling pain caused by on-set injuries. She was injured while filming "Marine Boy" and again while filming "Dachimawa Lee

"I think the general notion about marriage has changed greatly these days and there are various forms of marriage or living independently, so there could be single mothers who don"t choose to marry", she added.Park"s return wouldn"t be possible without her family"s support. She became a mother in September 2013 and decided to focus on raising her child for some time. "If my husband expected me to just stay at home taking care of my daughter, I would", Park said

[Spoiler] “Trot Romance” A happy ending: Jung Eun-ji and Ji Hyeon-woo overcome obstacles

By in News posted Oct August 13th, 2014 No comments

Ji Hyeon-woo and Jung Eun-ji became a true "Trot Romance".

On the final episode of the KBS 2TV drama "Trot Romance", Choon-hee (Jung Eun-ji) and Joon-hyeon (Ji Hyeon-woo) finally came together, overcoming all interferences and obstacles.

The way to the end was rough. Soo-in"s (Lee Se-yeong) evil deeds were revealed and she chose to surrender. Choon-hee and Joon-hyeon had a short time of romance, but Hwa-soon (Ji Soo-won) and Myeong-sik (Kang Nam-gil) were there. It turned out Hwa-soon had taken Seong-joo"s (Lee Yeon-kyeong) voice and Joon-hyeon tried to break up with Choon-hee.

However, this all started with Joo-hee (Kim Hye-ri). She was jealous of Seong-joo who had a brilliant talent so she tried everything in her power to stop Seong-joo from doing well, just like her daughter Soo-in (Lee Se-yeong)

Jang Joon-hyeon decided that he would marry her and took her out on a date by the Han River. He sang a song he wrote for her while playing his guitar.

Then there is Hong-joo"s immediate family, her father and brother, who experience the fallout of her relationship with Seok-hoon without knowing why shes a basketcase. Her father eventually discovers the marital troubles and is firmly on his daughter"s side. It"s nice to see a friendly K-drama dad, especially played by veteran Choi Il-hwa, dramaland"s resident ahjussi bad guy. Hong-joo"s relationship troubles bother her brother less, but they will plague him in the future. He and Se-jin, Se-young"s younger sister, are forming a grudging friendship where they commiserate over their places in their families. They are courting disaster because their sisters hate each other. I find this worn plot tool intriguing because the new romance is winsome.

As for the Seok-hoon/Se-young couple, they are barely resisting the temptation of being near each other with all the time they spend together for work

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] “Temptation” Episode 6

By in News posted Oct August 6th, 2014 No comments

The players take steps towards trying to fix the problems in their lives. While the solutions aren"t the most well-advised, efforts are definitely being made. These efforts have taken the story from a mopey stall towards invigorating forward motion.

Seok-hoon has decided to challenge his feelings for his wife Hong-joo and the deliberate temptress Se-young by forcing himself into a position where he sees Se-young everyday . He goes to work for her again under circumstances similar to what put his marriage on the rocks. While the move is logically moronic, story wise it is intriguing to see the turmoil Seok-hoon faces each time he sees Se-young or receives a call or text from Hong-joo.

Hong-joo is an interesting case because she blames Seok-hoon for all of their problems, but takes no responsibility herself

On the twenty-ninth episode of "Good Day", Han Song-jeong (Kim Mi-Sook) ran into Jeong In-seong (Kang Nam-gil) on her way out of the house.

In-seong called her over when she was about to walk past him and showed her the bag of money from Kim Sin-ae (Lee Mi-yeong). He said, "She gave me this and told me to break apart Da-jeong and your son. Is that all? She asked me to resolve things with you, too". Song-jeong was shocked and went to see Sin-ae right away.

She asked, "How could you do this?" but Sin-ae acted like she didn"t know anything. Song-jeong was furious at her reaction and said, "I pretended to not know what you have done to Da-jeong. Our children like each other!" Sin-ae said, "I can"t let them be just because they like each other"

"You"re Surrounded" Episodes 10-20 Review


After a few unfortunate mishaps along the road (delay because of elections, Lee Seung Gi"s eye injury), "You"re Surrounded" finally came to a conclusion with all twenty episodes, and boy oh boy was the second half a roller coaster of a ride!


I don"t know where to start -- there are so many things I want to say!

Diminishing Relationships and Roles

The first half was heavily focused on getting the main antagonist, the evil Yoo Moon Bae, so that a lot of the other side stories were pushed aside and forgotten.


Firstly, I have to say the frustration that built up during Dae Gu"s misunderstanding of Seo Pan Seok were not relieved to my satisfaction

Take a Sneak Peek of Han Seung Yeon’s First Appearance on “Jang Bo Ri Is Here”

By in News posted Oct May 3rd, 2014 No comments

Kara‘s Han Seung Yeon will soon make her appearance on the MBC drama “Jang Bo Ri is Here.” The recent images showed the singer being welcomed by her mother at the Incheon Airport. Yet by the looks of it, it seemed that Han Seung Yeon’s character won’t be receiving much of a warm welcome.

In the upcoming May 4 episode, Han Seung Yeon will appear as actress Geum Bo Ra‘s daughter Ga Eul who is a spoiled trouble maker. Despite her mother’s efforts to try and make Ga Eul learn English, Ga Eul’s return to Korea with nothing more than shopping bags and a face altered by plastic surgery caused Geum Bo Ra’s character to erupt in anger.

As Han Seung Yeon’s character knows nothing but herself, it will be interesting to watch Ga Eul mature in the coming episodes

Yiruma, the internationally-renowned pianist-composer from South Korea was in Singapore to perform publicly for the very first time at The Star Performing Arts Center on April 5. All 5,000 tickets were completely sold out. I was so lucky to be able to watch him perform his beautiful melodies; it was even more meaningful because that day was my birthday!

The soft-spoken pianist has a great sense of humor, surprisingly. After opening the concert with “May Be“, Yiruma stood up to greet the 5,000 strong audience.

“Hi Singapore, hi everyone. Wow! This is really wonderful, it’s very scary. It’s scary, but it’s very exciting to be here in Singapore. Are there any Koreans here? Annyeonghaseyo! I’m composer and pianist Yiruma, it’s so nice to meet you. Thank You!”
