A look at the K-dramas of 2012 2013/01/01, Source,
This year was really a wild ride. It was my second full year as a k-drama watcher and my first full year blogging. Phew. Did 2012 go by as quickly for you as it did for me?
Some of it I loved, and some of it left me lukewarm. There were a few dramas I really wish I could obliterate from my memory. But the good ones made up for it, 'cause there were some GOOD dramas.
The reviews will be highly biased and highly noninclusive. It's about what I remembered at the end of the year 2012. How did these shows impact me? Am I still salivating? Or did I forget it existed until I had to write this thing?,...More
K-Invasion expands to musicals 2012/05/04, Source,
Korean musicals have found great success in Japan, joining the ranks of K-pop and television dramas in spreading the Korean Wave overseas. The Japanese theater market, valued at 1 trillion won (886 million dollars) is the third-largest in the world. [JoongAng Ilbo]
Japanese music fans have grown accustomed to airwaves and album charts dominated by Korean pop groups. A country that used to be fodder ground for J-pop and Western tunes has embraced the Korean Wave, and it shows no signs of abating anytime soon.
Next up for Korean performers is the Japanese theater market, the third-largest on the globe, driven there by a receptive fan base and the chance to make enormous profits. The Japanese musical theater market is valued at approximately 1 trillion won ($886 million), more than five times the figure attached to Korea's theater world,...More
Kang Tae-young (Kim Jeong-eun) (SBS) Han Ki-ju (Park Shin-yang) (SBS) Yoon Su-hyuk (Lee Dong-geon) (KBS) Can you imagine what it would be like to become Cinderella? Sophisticated romance and passion taking place in the beautiful city of Paris… Tae-young (Kim Jeong-eun), who used to help her father manage a small, run-down theater in the outskirts of Seoul, decides to leave for Paris to study after her father passes away. Although Tae-young makes it to Paris, she finds that she cannot afford to even pay her rent unless she works part-time. One day, she gets a job as a cleaning lady at a beautiful mansion-style apartment. Ki-ju (Park Shin-yang) was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. As the son of a multi-millionaire, Ki-ju is a bright and sophisticated gentleman with a good sense of humor. Ki-ju has only one fear in life: love. In the past, he went through a loveless marriage arranged by his parents that ultimately led to a divorce. Despite these factors, Ki-ju soon finds himself helplessly falling for the unsophisticated, yet genuine charm of Tae-young.
ark Shin Yang is a very good actor and every time he plays his role you can always tell the sincerity and the devotion he has on his work..his life!
He's a very talented actor and he can always put colors on every drama he's part of.
I watched LIP 4 times and he always amaze me and makes me wonder how every time i watch this drama it makes me feel that it's my first time seeing it, i still laugh though i already knew what will happen, i cry on every heart-warming scenes PSY, KJE and LDG will have as if I'm in pain the same way they are.
Park shin yang for me is irreplaceable..
He's Park Shin Yang and will always be Park Shin Yang...
No mater he's still banned from doing any drama and being restricted to do things he's really great at, I know he'll be back someday cause Korean Entertainment industry will not be completed if one of it's foundation is missing..that for me is Park Shin Yang
I want to greet Mr. Park Shin Yang advanced happy birthday!!
Please be healthy, happy and positive!!
hope to see you and kim jeong eun again of big or small screen!!
God bless to your family

his was the first Korean drama I've seen and since I bought the DVD set, I've seen it over & over again and still never get tired of it! The casts, screenplay, soundtrack, direction are just super! This is the best Korean drama for me & no other dramas could surpass this one! The only downside of this drama is you get addicted to it. From the time I fell in love with this drama and Park Shin Yang of course, I never wanted to watch any other American series on TV or movies!
I love Korean dramas/movies because you don't see the kind of violence or sex that you often see in American films for that matter. know what it is but for me Korean dramas/movies are the best!
I loved Lovers & to me this is #1 and thereafter I've been wanting to watch more Kdramas! I just wish SBS would consider having a sequel to this wonderful romance/comedy story! It's remarkable & I can't stop talking about this! More power to you all!
the story tells that it doesnt have to be in Paris to meet yr fate..it can b anywhere in the world..thats why they said if fate would hv it it doesnt hv to b in paris..and thats the reason the replay the scene again..as u can see the setting is in korea instead of Paris..do u understand now?? :)
