So I’ve been working on some upgrades to the site. Maybe for the better? Maybe for the worst? Point is, kaedejun.wordpress.com will cease to exist.
This is not an April Fool’s Joke.
The new site is at http://www.kaedejun.com/. Please do give me some feedback on the site. While most of the posts have been updated and added there, I’m probably going to make more tweaks in the coming days (or weeks. or months.).
So. Yeah. Bye bye old home! I’m growing up now! *sniff sniff*
There are so many things wrong with this album cover, and only one thing right. (In my opinion, of course.)
Let’s start with the bad.
With this, I am officially caught up on Birdie Buddy recaps, and awaiting this coming week’s episode 17 and 18! Whew!
Sucks to balance K-dramas with The Good Wife, Amazing Race, How I Met Your Mother, Ringer, and Warehouse 13 on TV… Oh yeah, and real life.
I loved this episode for all the exposition. It’s about time we all learned more about what’s really going on. Even though we got hints as to everyone’s hidden motives and their pasts, it’s kind of refreshing to get it all out in the open. That moment of revelation is very satisfying for me.
Plus – 9 more episodes and we’re at the end!
Have I mentioned that I’m excited for this drama? No? OK, let me officially state that I’m excited for this drama. Murder? check. Mystery? check. Historical? Ehhhhhh – half-check. Han Suk Gyu? Double check.
The cast – Han, Shin Se Kyung, and Jang Hyuk were present at the press conference held on the 29th at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Seoul. Jang Hyuk admitted that he was going to turn down this drama at first because he thought his character was boring. He thought that there were other more interesting characters in the original novel this drama is based on. However, when he read the synopsis and script, he realized that his character was richer and more dramatized, and works as a narrator for the storyline.
Han Chae Young isn’t Korea’s “Barbie Doll” for nothing. She models for a European luxury brand Derercuny and the photo shoot was themed after an Italian film, and showed off her intense eye makeup.
Damn, I actually wish I could pull off sexy smoky eyes like that. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Her legs are unreal.
Not an exciting episode, but again the focus was on Hae Ryung. Though Lee Da Hee isn’t a bad actress, I think her storyline has just gotten to a point where I just don’t care. It’s always her fighting with her mother, and she keeps holding a grudge against Jung Woo. Most of the other characters have moved on, but I feel like she’s still revolving on the same plane.
Nevertheless, her actions are simply setting her up to be Mi Soo’s great rival.
Cha Tae Hyun is a father again! His baby daughter was born on September 29th, four years after his son was born in 2007. Congratulations!
He will start filming a new movie – “Gone With the Wind” – next month. Looks to be a historical comedy as the movie synopsis describes it as thieves stealing ice from an ice house.
Park Shi Hoo, Serial Killer.
Park Shi Hoo, Convicted Murderer.
Park Shi Hoo, Best Selling Author.
Park Shi Hoo, My Boo Can Do No Wrong.
Advantages of this drama: the 45-minute episodes help make the drama feel fast paced; the length of the drama (24 episodes) allow for a slower but better character development. Case in point: I hate Jung Woo’s actions and conflicting feelings, but I can understand them better because nothing’s rushed.
Disadvantages of this drama: too much of Sae Hwa being stubborn; the plots keep recycling in some way – competition, setback, withdrawal, resurgence. And the mother just keeps cycling between controlling and frustrated.
