Bloody Fight Opens in Theatres February 24th

 Finally, Park Hee-soon's movie Bloody Fight has gotten a premiere date! After months of being stuck in a timeless limbo, the movie plans to open on the 24th of February. I don't have much to say about the posters. They look cheesy, but the more I look, they seem better. I just hope the movie itself isn't cheesy.
The trailer looks better. The movie also stars Jin-goo and Go Chang-suk. Kim Gab-soo also appears in the trailer for about a second.

Dream High Episode 5: Uhm Ki-joon as Kang Oh-hyuk

Episode 5 was by far my favorite. I may sound like a broken record, but Dream High really is getting better by the episode. Ep. 5 was poignant and funny. Now the students are all at Kirin and are starting to strive for their goals. The show no longer relies solely on outside forces to cause problems. Hye-mi continues to fight against others, but the real obstacle now is herself. She has to learn that she’s not perfect and has to be able to slowly break down the wall around her heart.
NOTE: The following is not an actual recap of the drama but is more of a concentrated recap of the character Kang Oh-hyuk in Dream High. Kang Oh-hyuk will be shortened to Kang in the following recap.

Dream High Episode 4: Uhm Ki-joon as Kang Oh-hyuk

The drama keeps getting better which is a major plus. However, I have yet to fallen into the "can't wait for the next episode" category after finishing episodes 1-4. Hope is still not lost though! I'm enjoying it and even if it continues as is, I won't be disappointed (I didn't come in with very high expectations).

Dream High Episode 3: Uhm Ki-joon as Kang Oh-hyuk

It's getting better. There were more scenes of Kang Oh-hyuk in this episode than in episode 1 or episode 2. Kang is growing more as a character and so are the students. Overall, though I didn't want to admit it, I'm getting slightly excited for Dream High.

Episode 3

Dream High Episode 2: Uhm Ki-joon as Kang Oh-hyuk

The interaction between Kang Oh-hyuk and Hye-sung (Hye-mi's little sister) was adorable. This episode had a lot more Kang Oh-hyuk moments which means a lot more scenes of smiling Uhm Ki-joon.

Dream High Episode 1: Uhm Ki-joon as Kang Oh-hyuk

NOTE: The following is not an actual recap of the drama but is more of a concentrated recap of the character Kang Oh-hyuk in Dream High.
Quick Synopsis: Kirin High School is not just simply a school but a place where stars are born. Six students each with their own strengths and weaknesses fight and struggle to reach the top. Let the battle BEGIN!
The Six Students:
 Go Hye-mi – strong vocal skills but stubborn and prejudice


Song Sam-dong – musical genius but is a total country bumpkin


Jin-gook (Hyun Shi-hyuk) – great dance skills but troubled family history


Yoon Baek-hee – inferiority complex against Hye-mi


Jason – good at singing and dancing (from the United States of America)


Kim Pil-sook –has the singing talent but lacks in appearance; has a crush on Jason

GLove Trailer

It looks adorable! The VIP premiere was held, and the movie will be opening in theatres in Korea on January 20.


Park Hee-soon came to the VIP premiere:
I really wish there were pictures of Jung Jae-young and Park Hee-soon together. That would be gold.They should do a movie together. I know they were in So Cute but now they're more famous which means they'll get more screen time! Before that, though, I hope I can see Bloody Fight in the near future.

Park Yong-woo's film Children (2011) Teaser 2

The cast looks absolutely great.

Park Yong-woo (Jejoongwon)
Ryu Seung-ryong (Personal Taste)
Sung Dong-il (Runaway: Plan B)
Kim Yeo-jin (Red Candy; The World They Live In)
Sung Ji-roo (Birth of a Rich)

All are fantastic. Oh no, I can feel my hopes going up.

Jung Jae-young and Jun Do-hyun are cast in Countdown

Jung Jae-young has been cast in Countdownwith Jun Do-hyun (pictured below). Jung plays 100% success rate, loan shark Tae Gun-ho, and Jun plays the beautiful swindler Cha Ha-yun whose whole existence is built on lies. Tae Gun-ho is a ruthless man who places his life as collateral and relentlessly chases Cha Ha-yun trying to make her pay back her loan. Cha ha-yun is an ex-convict who has just been released from jail and manipulates Tae Gun-ho in order to hit the jackpot.

The film is described as a human, action drama. Human is supposed to mean that it’s heartfelt and is not an emphasis that the movie is about humans and not blue aliens (I think). Jung Jae-young and Jun Do-hyun worked together on No Blood, No Tears (2002) so after a decade, the two actors have reunited.

I'm happy to see Jung in another film. I'm even more excited to hear that he's playing a ruthless loan shark. Since his character is supposedly going to move the audience (and in a new way to boot!), I suspect …
