The weekend means that I get to catch up on my Taiwanese dramas! And that means, more episodes of My Queen! And that means, more Ethan Ruan! Episode 4 had me squeeing at how awesome he can be. I really enjoy how there will always be misunderstandings, but the feelings are always straightforward; as in, there doesn’t seem to be a confusion as to who they really like romantically. That’s my kind of TW-drama.
The drama also has me getting annoyed at Cheryl Yang’s Shan Wu Shuang; though her heart is in the right place, she never lets anyone see that good heart. Therefore she comes off as abrasive, and therefore annoying as a character.
But nevertheless! The marathon continues! Although it sucks that since we must all spring forward, I’ll lose an hour of sleep. -__-”
It has been a FULL WEEK since I last did one of these. Dang…
Do I have an excuse? No.
My recap is going to go up later this week, but I just want to say that I finally finished Dr. Champ! And I think it is safe to say that while I didn’t love it, I liked it. Very much. If I proclaimed my love for it now, I know it is purely because I am riding on a high right now, since I just finished it. I’m not going to give my review of it here, lest it be a double post of sorts, but here’s a review of the final episode. WARNING: read it ONLY if you watched it already OR want to know what happened at the end.
Kim So Yeon – you make me proud, as always. (I’m allowed to claim a “girl” and have my girl crush right? Because while Park Shi Hoo and Uhm Tae Woong are mine, I am staking a claim on Kim So Yeon. She is awesome to the nth degree.)
During a press conference for her new film “Grand Prix,” Kim Tae Hee revealed that after filming she would usually relax and not worry about how well or badly her works did. But after the success of IRIS, she is now “greedy” and more worried about how well received her future projects will be. Makes sense – once you have a taste of success, you really want it to continue. But she’s got to improve her range… She did well in IRIS but was no competition to her supporting actress Kim So Yeon.
Lovely Jang Geun Suk posed for famous Korean photographer Jo Se Hyun to be part of a photo exhibition titled “Beautiful Eyes.” The idea behind the exhibition was “a person’s story is told with their eyes and that a person will look beautiful if he/she has a beautiful gaze.” Jang was featured alongside Park Ye Jin (Queen Seon Deok), Bae Jong Ok (The World They Live In, On Air), and Jang Mi Hee (Prince’s First Love) and other celebrities. Proceeds from the event will go to World Vision. I love seeing him more natural than all made up for his roles.
Lee Jun Ki completed his five-week training for the military and was assigned to the Public Relations unit. With his talent, he will be working on the promotional side of the military, participating in television and radio shows for the military to boost their morale. If I’m not mistaken, I think Gong Yoo did something similar to this too during his stint in the army.
Here’s something that made my jaw drop to the floor.
Lee Jun Ki dropped out of BOTH his film “Grand Prix” and his drama Faith to enlist in the army…next week! Though it’s good since he knows he cannot delay it any further, “Grand Prix” has already started shooting. Now both productions are going to have to find someone to replace him…
Maybe it sounds like I’m exaggerating, but really – my jaw dropped!
GONG YOO IS MAKING A COMEBACK! After entering the military – and leaving us all hanging and wanting for more after his remarkable performance in Coffee Prince – Gong Yoo has been carefully selecting his next project. He’s done some modeling – but psh, that’s nothing. But NOW he’s casted for the film “Finding Kim Jong Wook” alongside Im Soo Jung. Im will play a woman seeking the first love she met in India. Gong Yoo will play the man helping her with her search. (Guess who fall in love instead!?) Anyways – main reaction is YAY! UBER YAY!
I just wish it were a drama instead of a film – haha.
