Top 10 K-Drama Cameos By Your Favourite Actors and Actresses

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

K-drama cameos are fun little surprises for fans. When you recognize an unexpected face on the screen, it’s like being part of a secret drama club! Here (in no particular order) are just a few of the best K-drama cameos:

1. Yoon Eun Hye, Personal Taste, episode 8

This cameo is for every person who has ever wished that Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Min Ho would share the screen in a romantic drama. Sadly, Eun Hye was only onscreen for a few minutes as Lee Min Ho’s ex.

(Fun fact: Kim Nam Gil also had an unscripted cameo in this drama when he happened to be passing by the filming site and agreed to sit in as a patron in a coffee shop.)

2. Kim Hyun Joong, Dream High, episode 1

What better way to lend legitimacy to the premise of a prestigious performing arts school than to claim Kim Hyun Joong as a former student? If only he had stayed long enough to sing a song with the other students!

[HanCinema"s Drama Review] “Nine: Time Travelling Nine Times”

By in News posted Oct August 24th, 2014 No comments

Although to be expected from a medium which uses interesting elements as gimmicks, it has to be said that "Nine: Time Travelling Nine Times" is not really a drama to explore time travel and it is not a sci-fi one. It uses time travel and what it can do to existence, but never really lays out any rules or explain how the changes work or their origins. In a work mostly about the human impact or change within the person, this would not be as important. The reason why this lack of rules is a flaw here is because the drama does play up the time travel aspect enough for those to be necessary. No rules means that the series conveniently shapes the way time travel works to solve its plot holes and help its progress. By the end, it is all an unexplained mess, overriding many things it supposedly established earlier.

Once past that issue, the series is actually entertaining as a suspense, mystery show

Choi Jin Hyuk Chooses Active Duty

Earlier this year it was reported that actor Choi Jin Hyuk would serve out his two-year mandatory military service as a conscripted policeman in the Seoul Police Public Relations Unit. But the actor has changed his mind.

His agency, Redbrick House, says that he opted out of serving in the police public relations unit and will instead serve as an active duty soldier.

Since the actor passed the examination in March and has declined to serve in the police promotional unit, he is obligated to report for active duty as a regular soldier.

His enlistment date has not yet been confirmed, although it is said that he will enlist some time this year.

All Korean males must serve two years of military duty between the ages of 18 and 35

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

Moon Jeong-hee had Song Yoon-ah all wrong.

On the sixth episode of the MBC drama "Mama - Nothing to Fear", Seo Ji-eun (Moon Jeong-hee) blamed Han Seung-hee (Song Yoon-ah) thinking that she had spread rumors about Seo Ji-eun"s husband Moon Tae-joo (Jeong Joon-ho) and his affair.

Jin Hyo-jeong (Jeong Soo-yeong), who likes to talk, heard this rumor from Kwon Do-hee (Jeon Soo-kyeong) and told Seo Ji-eun. She didn"t say where it came from. Jin Hyo-jeong "comforted" her saying to be calm and to tell her the truth, but Seo Ji-eun asked where it came from and that Bona"s father wouldn"t do such a thing.

Seo Ji-eun then remembered seeing Han Seung-hee (Song Yoon-ah) and Jin Hyo-jeong talking together

K-Drama Actresses As Close As Sisters

By in News posted Oct August 8th, 2014 No comments

 

Actresses can be negatively portrayed as being self-absorbed. Think Jun Ji Hyun"s character Chun Song Yi in "You Who Came From The Stars." Although she was a superstar she was not the best of girlfriends and more likely to make a frenemy than an unni. Her supposed best friend, played by Yoo In Na, was really resentful and jealous of her.

But off set quite a few k-drama actresses are friends and actually good friends and continue to support each other"s careers.

In real life Yoo In Na is one actress who is happy to have another actress as a friend.

Yoo In Na is currently on the set of "My Secret Hotel," filming a drama about a divorced couple that meet seven years later. But her best friend singer-actress IU missed her so she sent over a coffee truck for the crew

In the last year several highly desirable k-drama characters have been at least part-time disc jockeys.

Sung Joon played Joo Won a.k.a. Allen Joo, a 20-something celebrity disc jockey and songwriter in "I Need Romance 3." His character is a global star, playing at nightclubs and producing records in the U.S. He is a highly sought after disc jockey when he returns to Korea.

Of course the heroine, played by Kim So Yeon, falls for his musical skills before she realizes that they were children together and they already know each other.

And now Choi Jin Hyuk is in a drama that also affords him a turn as a DJ. He plays Daniel an industrial designer superstar, who just happens to be an ace disc jockey on the side. When he spins records in "Fated To Love You," he dresses the part, wearing a superstar gold leather jacket that gilds his undeniable charms
