Initially, I was more interested in his private… life! *laughs* I mean, it is Kim Jae Wook! If you are not interested in him, you are in the wrong blog! Please exit because I plan to fangirling and squeeing over him throughout this post! But if you are interested, eoseo oseyo to you, chingu! Welcome to Jae Wook’s first romcom drama blog post! We have been waiting for him to be the main lead – where he gets the girl (FINALLY!!!!), where he gets to show his quirky side, where he gets to show his romantic side, where he gets to show his capability in making all of us fall in love with him through and through – and no longer the second lead. I am so happy!!!!
Finally, a drama I could brag about! Scary? Maybe. Intrigue? Yes. Interesting? Absolutely. Romance? Get the hell out of here. However, I must say, The Guest is not for the weak heart. Surprisingly, my heart is strong to handle all the grossness. I started watching it when I was in Myanmar. Jet lag is my best friend and it gives me ample of time to catch on new dramas. Hence, I started 100 Days My Prince and of course, The Guest. Bel warned me to watch it at day but I could not resist. When someone says that, it felt like a challenge. The worse part was I saw the first episode while having dinner! I felt so satisfying watching the bloodiest scene while slurping my delicious pasta con funghi!
Temperature of Love. A simple kind of drama. Nothing fancy to rave about yet… I am, however, loving every single bit of it. I don’t even know where to begin. I started out of blue today because I am not ready to be angry with Witch’s Court (I will start it soon). Okay, who am I kidding! I started it because of Kim Jae Wook! Kim Jae Wook in suits and vest. Kim Jae Wook and his voice. Kim Jae Wook looking very serious. Kim Jae Wook smiling. Kim Jae Wook stretching on a couch. Kim Jae Wook. Omo… I am in love. But wae wae wae he is the second lead again???!
When I first saw the trailer, I knew I must watch this movie no matter what. I fell in love right away with Son Ye Jin’s portrayal as Princess Dok Hye. Her stunning beauty and her elegant and poised character struck me immediately. The trailer got me into tears. And when I finally saw the movie, my heart and soul were moved by it. Wait, I was also angry! Angry at how the Japanese treated the Princess and angry at how the citizens were treated.
*deep exhale* I don’t know where to begin. Yeah, honestly I don’t. And why am I still watching it? *deep breathe* *deep exhale* because I haven’t seen many Korean dramas this year. Because it is Jang Hyuk. Because it is a crime and thriller drama. Unfortunately, Voice disappoints me but I heard it picks up after ep 11. Sure, the cases can be brutal. And I love the craziness of the villains portrayed in this show. However, they are not bloody and violent enough for me. Voice could never compete with Japanese’s crime dramas. If you want to see real psycho villains, you should watch Japanese dramas. They will get you good!
Day 9: Second leads that will always be second leads
Sada: There isn’t a rule when comes to Korean dramas. Everyone who are handsome and pretty, and with an at least little bit of talent could get a chance to be a lead. One could move his or her career starting from web dramas and slowly to major production dramas. All they need is a chance. That’s it.
Me: Hmmm it’s hard to name them. It is funny that how Lim Ju Whan used to be main leads but now he persistently accepting second lead roles. And then there is Kim Jae Wook who always in second or third lead role. Choi Si Won is another actor that always the second lead, never the groom! *cries* Like Sada said, they all need to be given a chance and I agree. I especially agree with Jae Wook.
Mari: My beloved Kang HaNeul seems to have been fallen into this category. There’s also Ji Soo but I’m hoping that it is only because he is still fairly new to acting. For female actresses, there are waaay few that I like but wish they could get a lead are Lee Da Hee, Kim Yoo Ri, and the drop dead gorgeous Lee El. Give them a chance! Don’t curse them as second leads forever!
Hey, everyone! Mari, Sada and I decided to participate in Dramas With a Side of Kimchi’s fangirling challenge which started on February 20th. For Sada, she will keep it on Korean drama level. She said that if she includes Chinese and Japanese dramas, it will be too much of a hassle. I agree with her suggestion and Mari and I will keep the same format, too. Although ya’ll know you can never trust Mari… *giggles*
Even though we are 4 days behind, I have decided to blog it daily. Not that I don’t have plenty of time, but since it is a short challenge, I think I can handle the heat (and pressure)! *wink*. So, without further delay… let’s focus on day 1 challenge!
