Missing You–A Happy Ending+The King of Dramas–A Hurried Happy Ending

Missing You–A Happy Ending

After all the hints of a tragic ending for Jung Woo and Soo Yeon of “Missing You” including [supposedly] Yoochun’s assessment that his character needed to be killed off to make things right, I was happy to see that my own personal desire for the melodrama’s ending was realized. I could see no justification in a conclusion that would separate Jung Woo and Soo Yeon after all the heartache they had been through. Fourteen years is a long time to have an ache in your heart–at least the reward of being together can ease that hurt. There were a lot of positive role model elements in this melodrama that endeared it to my heart immediately. Jung Woo displays great compassion and sensitivity, and Soo Yeon has an ability for self-sacrifice that is fearsome. The two of them deserved each other. All of the actors in this melodrama were commendable, believable, and deserved awards all around.

I have to say something here about Yoo Seung Ho who portrays “Harry” aka Kang Hyung Joon in “Missing You’. I was curious so I looked up his profile and realized why he is such a good actor. He has been acting for years. I believe that his acting in “Missing You” was top notch. He somehow managed to be a villain and make you love him at the same time. My mother’s heart went out to Harry Borrison.


The King of Dramas–A Hurried Happy Ending

I have no idea how the ratings went for this remarkable drama. It probably wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea–it taught too many life lessons. I fell totally in love with all of the characters especially Mr. Aen Seo-ni and Writer Lee aka Kim Myeong-min and Jeong Ryeo-won. Choi Si Won of Super Junior also starred in this drama that centered on the transformation of the main characters from self-centered obnoxious persons into caring individuals. I enjoyed every moment of this drama that was packed with an excellent cast. It was apparent that the writer’s intent was on redeeming the hearts and minds of the main characters, especially Aen Seo-ni, who makes a 360° transformation by the conclusion of this drama. His influence and inspiration–a mere slip of a girl who teaches him that people matter more than success or appearances. I was only disappointed at the end of this drama by what appeared to be a rushed ending. I believe it would have benefited from two additional episodes.

Hats off to both of these well-written, well acted dramas.

Jaejoong, you DO look erotic
(Jaejoong, 12:37am KST, 121207) My friend told me this today.. He said that I look erotic/sexual.. So I said, “There’s no one on earth who looks as warm and loving as I do,”. I have a “native” face. (T/N: When Jaejoong says “native”, I believe he’s trying to say that he has a very Korean, traditional face.)

That’s happening to me too these days 😛

120109 [News} The Cute Quotient

[News] The Cute Quotient

By Primastuti Handayani
The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network
Saturday, Jan 07, 2012

South Korea’s best-known export today is not pickled cabbage.

Instead, it comes in a sleek, pretty package and suits the tastes of people across Asia – especially young women – and increasingly the world.

Move over, kimchi. Come on down, K-pop male idols.

In the past few years, Indonesian teenage girls, like their peers across Asia and increasingly in Europe, have become devoted fans of Hallyu (Korean wave) entertainers such as Choi Si-won of Super Junior, Kim Jaejoong of JYJ (formerly a member of DBSK/TVXQ), SS501′s Kim Hyun-joong and many more.

Back in 2009, the era of Bae Yong-joon with his famous Winter Sonata TV series gave way to protégé Hyun-joong in the role of Yoon Ji-hoo in Boys Before Flowers.

Jaejoong’s Protect the Boss and Si-won’s Poseidon, produced in 2011, have captured the hearts of fans who watch the series however they can – cable TV, video streaming, pirated DVDs or on YouTube.

Asian countries, especially Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, have turned out plenty of attractive young entertainers in the past, but these Korean men – stylish, well groomed and well built – fulfill a fantasy for young women of the very handsome boy next door.

According to psychologist Dewi Dewo, moviegoers want to see men who are good-looking but not intimidating.

“Why do sweet-looking boys sell? Because the trend today is for them. Even young stars from the West are cute guys,” she says.

Tati Winarsih, the author of Seoulvivor, a book on K-pop hot spots in Seoul released late November, believes that it’s only natural for everybody to want to see “beautiful creatures”.

“These girls really love those pretty boys because despite their beautiful look, they are still able to show their macho side, their manly character. They aren’t effeminate despite their beauty,” she says, adding that reality shows have helped the stars to reveal their true selves to their fans.

The dramas also sell Korea.


The comprehensive training system, according to SM Entertainment CEO Kim Young-min, is the secret behind the success of K-pop.

SM is currently the biggest entertainment agency in South Korea, with its stable of stars including DBSK, Super Junior, Girls’ Generation, SHINee and f(x).

“If a group concept is chosen, then the members start training their foreign languages, dancing and singing,” he was quoted as saying by Soompi.com. “I think the most important aspect of training is training a celebrity’s personality.”

“Creating” a superstar is not a cheap enterprise.

SM founder, Lee So-man, revealed how his agency spent 4 billion won (S$5.1 million) grooming the original five members of DBSK, according to Chosun.

The amount doubled as the group – named the best second-generation K-pop band from their 2004 debut until they splintered into DBSK and JYJ in 2009 following a legal dispute – started producing their album and doing promotions.

The enormous investment pays off: The artists, once successful and popular, are veritable money machines.

According to one estimate, the Hallyu may have generated as much as US$4 billion in sales in 2011, a 14 per cent increase from the previous year. The number is likely to grow given the high demand for more concerts and fan meetings overseas.

Choi Siwon has undertaken the role of Kim Seon Woo, who has made a name for himself in the local regions through the use of unconventional investigation techniques. TVXQ’s Yunho has made a friendly appearance by playing a character who mysteriously left for Japan for further studies. This is a drama which can allow viewers to discover the different charms of uniformed policemen.

NEWS 110929 TVXQ’s Jung Yunho May Return To Drama “Poseidon”

[News] 110929 TVXQ’s Jung Yunho may return to drama “Poseidon”


TVXQ’s Yunho has received enthusiastic response through his special appearance as Marine Police Special Forces Tactics Team leader Kang Eunchul in KBS’s new drama series “Poseidon” through the first 4 episodes. Although his character has exited the drama, it is expected that there will be a comeback.

Yunho’s last appearance in “Poseidon” was in the 4th episode broadcast on September 27th. Because Yunho was not a fixed cast member and only had a special appearance, he appeared in a glamorous fashion in the initial parts of the drama and then bid goodbye to the audience.

His appearance in “Poseidon” is Yunho’s comeback to the drama industry in 2 years after MBC’s “Heading To The Ground” in 2009. As a result, the anticipation of his fans and other netizens were huge. As a singer and member of TVXQ, he had reached the pinnacle position, but as an actor, it remains a fact that his activities were minimal. Particularly, in light of the fact that fellow TVXQ member Changmin had made his acting debut through “Paradise Ranch,” the anticipation for Yunho could only increase.

Fortunately, Yunho has received good reviews through his brilliant visuals and action scenes in “Poseidon,” as well for his stable acting ability. However, what is a pity at this stage is that Yunho is leaving the drama through his last appearance in the 4th episode. Accordingly, a portion of viewers showed responses such as, “We plead for an increase of Jung Yunho’s part,” “We want to hear more about Jung Yunho, who provided the twist in the drama.”


Fortunately, the production crew has revealed the possibility of Yunho re-appearing. “Poseidon” Kim Seungmo PD hinted, “It is possible that Yunho will re-appear in the latter part of ‘Poseidon’ as his character Kang Eunchul. We have set aside some room for that possibility.”

Particularly, the production crew explained that Kang Eunchul’s character is a main role, which straddles between good and evil. This allow the drama to smoothly go on. Kang Eunchul and Choi Heegon, the head of the criminal organization, got entangled, and constrained by unforeseen circumstances. In the 4th episode, Marine Police Special Forces Tactics Team leader Kang Eunchul abruptly left the country, leaving behind many questions.
