I’m sorely behind on news updates aren’t I? They come in bits and pieces… every three-four days or so…kekeke…Why the two dates? Because in my world, it’s already the 21st, but I SWEAR I was writing this on the 20th.
Anyways – it’s a complete TRAVESTY to see Yoona of SNSDbe cast oppositeJang Geun Suk in the drama Love in the Rain, headed by the Four Seasons-director Yoon Suk Ho. She was chosen because she could portray “innocence and purity” required of the dual characters she’s playing (the mother in the 1970′s and the daughter in present time; Jang is doing the same thing with his character). Why do I hate the casting choice so much?
Because 1) I saw her in 9 End 2 Outs and she was irritating. She’s perfect at being annoying; and 2) I don’t see her appeal. I get that she kinda matches with Jang Geun Suk in terms of youth and looks, but she’s not amazing. I don’t see why people think she’s cute; I think her face is too expressionless save for a placid smile; she’s not even interesting in SNSD music videos; and I don’t think she’s someone who should headline a big drama like this.
I refuse to watch this drama, unless someone puts a head restraint on me to lock my eyes on the screen and watch her act. Call me violently biased, but hey, I can have my opinion on an actress right?
She’s considering a role in the upcoming MBC drama Return of the Queen (tentative title), which will be written by Kim Do Woo (My Lovely Sam Soon) and directed by Go Dong Sun (Queen of Housewives). According to KEYEAST, nothing has been set in stone yet, especially since her scandal only headlined, like, the first half of summer, and, like, totally rocked South Korea’s world.
She’s gotta be careful yunno? Her next comeback role can’t be about a woman who finds herself in the midst of a divorce and must learn to reinvent herself while dating a costar coworker.
There is a lot of dating announcements… because spring has just passed and we’re hurtling into summer!!
First up, Song Chang Ui (of the upcoming Heartstrings) is dating singer Lisa. The two of them met on the musical “Gwanghwamun Sonata” (which also starred B2st’s Yoseob for those of you who care), and it evolved into an off-stage romance.
Happy Lunar New Year! 新年快乐，恭禧发财! (My inner China Girl just came out right there…)
Anyways! Who’s got more resolutions?! On January 1, I made the resolution the live it up more and have fun, but on February 3 I’m making the resolution to work hard and watch more dramas! (The second resolution sounds contradictory, but actually it’s not ) So here’s to catching up on My Princess and watching oldies but goodies that I missed.
Also – it’s the Year of the Rabbit, and to celebrate it, DramaFever is holding another contest. They had a Secret Garden one that I didn’t get to win (boo) but I tweeted for this one. T-shirt looks mighty cute! And I looooooooove bunnies! Details are here.
