[Spoiler] 'Last' Park Ye-jin calls Lee Beom-soo an evil 2015/08/28, Source,
On August 28th's episode of JTBC Friday & Saturday drama, "Last", Kwak Heung-sam (Lee Beom-soo) came to pick up Seo Mi-joo (Park Ye-jin), who was drinking alone at a cart bar and she poured out spiteful words to him.
On this day, Kwak Heung-sam asked Seo Mi-joo how things had gone with lobbying with CEO Yoon's son. Seo Mi-joo answered, "I met him and lured him and exchanged business cards", while she was looking at him hatefully. Kwak Heung-sam said, "Don't hate me" and "It's you who accepted the offer under the condition you get what you wanted to know". He mentioned that Seo Mi-joo had made the deal so she could find out the address of Ryoo Jong-goo (Park Won-sang)'s daughter,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Last" 2015/07/18,
After romantic melodrama 'My Love Eun-dong', jTBC has something quite different coming up. "Last" is not looking like the kind of show which drama audiences are used to, but its cast, approach and the fact that it is based on a popular webtoon might deliver something substantial or at least entertaining. On the other hand, it might be shallow and messy, but one can hope,...More

[Guest Post] Celebrating Family Outing Part 1 - The Cast 2015/07/05, Source,
Seven years ago, an ambitious reality show called Family Outing appeared on Korean TV. Hosted by "The Nation's MC" Yoo Jae-seok (most may know him only as the guy with the bowl cut in PSY's recent videos), this variety show took outdoor reality to a level that is still trying to be reached. The show ran for nearly 2 years on SBS's 'Good Sunday' and had many of the same cast and crew members from the game show X-Man. What this show offered was more than just silly games and jokes, it was a travelogue of Korean villages and offered a glimpse into the Confucian-based society unheard of in America,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Head" + DVD Giveaway 2014/10/25,
Black comedy is a very tricky genre. Not only does it have to be funny and witty, but it has to be appropriately dark without becoming melodramatic. Aside from that important balance, creating sympathy for its usually eccentric characters is a very difficult task to get right. Korean cinema has hits and misses in the genre and "Head" has some issues which keep it from being one of the great successes in it, but it is still a delightfully enjoyable film,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Great Queen Seondeok" 2012/12/23,
Origin myths can tell you a lot about a country. It's not the literal truth of the stories that's really important- rather, it's what people remember about their culture and have decided to pass along to their descendants. The heroes of our pasts are who we want future generations to emulate. In the United States, for example, the Founding Fathers are considered nigh immaculate philosopher kings who produced the Constitution through the sheer force of combined genius. This isn't even remotely true (and the Founding Fathers themselves would be quite disturbed if they knew we remembered them like this), but this simple fact in itself tells you a lot about the United States' current national character,...More
Super Junior reigns supreme 2012/09/05, Source,
This is the 11th in a 15-part series on the stars and trends in "hallyu" or Korean wave, which is gaining global popularity in Southeast Asia and Latin America. The Korea Times produces this special project in cooperation with the Korean Foundation and CJ E&M. - ED. By Kim Ji-soo, Rachel Lee
Young K-pop fans may have killed for the chance that we've had: to walk backstage on M Countdown, a popular cable television music program. Stepping inside Thursday, we saw immaculately-styled Sung Min, a member of Super Junior, whiz by us. Then up ahead, in the room with a paper sign showing the group's name on the door, there was Shin Dong having his violet-colored hair styled up, as Si Won stepped out and with a manner worthy of a world star said hello to his interviewers,...More
[User Review Batch] Movies 2011 - Blind, Sector 7, Head 2011/12/10,
So, a while back I made some Korean Movies 2011 posts in my blog, talking about movies being released this year which drew my interest. There are a few more that popped up so I might need to make another post now, but at the same time, I'd like to start some mini-reviews of those I have seen.
For a couple of them, I might even do dedicated bigger reviews, but for now, this is good enough. I will probably do 3 movies each time, to keep things tidier and keep up with the releases, which vary a lot.
So, here is the first batch, featuring "Blind", "Sector 7" and "Head",...More

The 'cheerful and nothing-can-bring-me-down' female character meets the grandson of a conglomerate. He tries to turn her into a princess and the two fall in love. That is how you could summarize MBC's "My Princess". To add on just a little more detail, Lee Seul (played by Kim Tae-hee) is a stingy female college student who is of royal descent and diplomat Park Hye-young (played by Song Seung-heon) becomes her tutor to make her a princess per the request of his grandfather (played by Lee Soon-jae) in order to restore their imperial family,...More

The cast of variety show "Family Outing Season 2" [SBS]
Happy Sunday's "Family Outing Season 2" - SBS TV, Sunday 5:20 P.M.
There were probably not many people who expected the second season of "Family Outing" to be much different from the first season. Everything that could be shown in the show's format had already been shown during the one year and eight months of its first-season run. Moreover, the family members -- which is the only new element viewers can expect from season two -- are faces viewers have already seen on many other variety programs. Despite such low expectations, the first episode of season two failed to deliver anything at all above viewers' anticipation. The cast seemed out of place, as if they were guests from the first season who had gone on a trip together, but that was only natural since it was their first meeting. But instead of reviving the awkwardness in a natural way, the excessive set-up of trying cover it up right away with a forced friendliness under the name of being a 'family' was far from 'real'.,...More

[ChanMi's take] Choi Kang-hee VS. Park Ye-jin! 2009/10/28, Source, The colorful outfits are difficult to pinpoint as best dressers, mostly, they are not wise choices. A lot of accessories or items make the look uncoordinated and messy rather than sophisticated and modern.
The detail and patterns should not be adorned with a lot of jewleries and should be minimal.
Choi Kang-hee and Park Ye-jin have worn the colorful dresses in different places.
Choi wore it for the film meeting, "Ae-ja" and Park Ye-jin wore it for the press meeting for the film, "Fortune Salon".
