Happy Birthday Jung Jae-young

Jung Jae-young always seems to be doing a new project, one after another. As a fan, it makes me giddy but also curious as to when he rests. Not too many pictures of him but lots of stills from his movies this year and upcoming. I can't wait to see him in these projects, plus King's Wrath (no photos here) sounds awesome but that could just be because it has Jung and Park Sung-woong!

The Queen's Classroom: Farewell

NOTE: Does not contain explicit spoilers but the following content pertains to the last episode

As I finished the last episode of The Queen's Classroom, I couldn't help but tear up again. This show took me by surprise with its depth and humanity. It's a sophisticated look at society and the problems surrounding the educational system and youth culture. Though the issues brought up in the drama will not be easily fixed nor will there always be an optimistic ending for everybody, it gives hope that the future isn't always bleak.

However, this post is not dedicated to talking about the themes and problems the show touched upon, that's for another time. Rather, I want to say my good-byes to the living, breathing characters who allowed me into their lives and a small glimpse of their world. I will cherish the love, the laughter, the hardships, and the tears I've shared with them and as my favorite character loves to say, "I won't hold back those who leave.&…

New Drama for Park Sung-woong

Park Sung-woong's new drama She is Wow premieres Thursday, April 18. He plays a famous news anchor, Gong Jung-han, who's married to a beautiful actress, Jo A-ra, played by Oh Hyun-gyung. They appear to be the perfect star couple, but in reality, they are nothing more than empty-shells and a far cry from their touted perfect images. 
Jin Young (the staple idol cast member that every great drama needs) plays Gong and Jo's rebellious son Gong Min-gyu who they like to keep hidden and away from the media. Gwon Yool (Pieta) plays Ji Sung-gi, a hardworking and idealistic college student who lost his parents in high school and is unaware of the harsh realities of the world. He becomes romantically involved with Gong Jung-han.
Han Jung-soo and Ahn Sun-young play a couple, Choi Go-ya and Jin Bo-yuh respectively. He was once a famous baseball player who is gifted with incredible stamina but a lack of wits. She just wants to have children and be a normal housewife, yet after tens yea…

Happy Birthday Park Yong-woo

Happy Birthday!
Well, I feel like what's to come next should be pretty obvious... pictures!

Park Hee-soon's Return to the Small Screen

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
After six years, Park Hee-soon is returning to dramaland in the up-coming SBS drama All about my Romance slated for an April, Wednesday-Thursday time slot. He'll play the second lead who helps the heroine who is a rookie politician. No confirmation about the female lead, though Han Hye-jin was cast but dropped. Lee Min-jung's name is being attached, but I hope that doesn't solidify. In the lead is Shin Ha-kyun who plays another politician who's on the opposite party of the heroine, but (obviously) they get romantically entangled and hijinks ensue.
Park's management company confirmed the casting today stating that he picked the drama because the script was fun and his friendship with Shin Ha-kyun had a positive effect.
I feel super happy that Park is returning to the small screen, but being second fiddle in a rom-com doesn't scream exciting or great to me. May be, just may be, he'll be a fun and cool …

Happy Birthday Park Hee-soon

Ah, it's that time of the year again... Park Hee-soon's birthday. Which simply means a ton of pictures!

Behind the Camera

Director Lee Jae-yong of the movie Actresses, has a new film about to hit the theaters later this month. Like his previous work, Director Lee's Behind the Camera is sort of a documentary... heck, I'll be honest, I have no clue what the movie is.
Basic premise: fourteen actors, a movie to film, and now here's the catch, no director on set. Albeit, Director Lee will still be directing, but throughout the movie, he'll only converse with the crew on set through the internet via video chat. Tensions run high as the absence of a physical director is sorely felt by cast and crew while the cameras still roll, capturing all the interactions behind the scenes.
The cast is quite the plethora of names and credentials. To name some, Yoon Yeo-jung (The Housemaid), Park Hee-soon (The Client), Kang Hye-jung (The Marriage Plot), Oh Jung-sae (I Miss You), Kim Min-hee (Helpless), Kim Ok-bin (Thirst), Ryu Duk-hwan (Faith), Lee Ha-nee (I am the King), Kim Nam-jin (First Love of the Prince

Happy Birthday Park Sung-woong

Happy [Belated] Birthday! Well, this is embarrassingly late, and even worse, I don't have tons of pictures to spam this post with. Anyways, can't believe how quickly time is flying by. I hope Park Sung-woong had a lovely birthday and spent it with his loved ones. He's so awesome and adorable when he's with his wife and kid.
