So there’s Eric Moon and then there’s Jung Yu Mi. Both are my favorites. How could I not watch Discovery of Love? You tell me. I first saw Eric’s acting in the ill-fated Spy MyeongWol and then the interesting Zorro-like Chilwu, The Mighty. This guy is hot I tell you. As for Jung Yu Mi, I first saw her in The Queen Of Office and then I Need Romance 2. She did so great in The Queen Of Office that she immediately became my favorite.
Joseon Gunman or Joseon Chongjabi 조선 총잡이 is the kind of drama anyone would love. Masked, double identity hero… You get what I mean? I came into this drama with great interest and it surely did not disappoint so far (I’m at episode 10 as I’m writing this). Because I was so hooked with this drama, I marathoned it until the latest episode as shown in Korea.
Full Sun is known as 태양은 가득히 (taeyangeun gadeukgi) or Beyond the Clouds. Beyond the clouds there is a silver lining. 🙂
I didn’t bother at all with Full Sun when it started as I didn’t know the two leads (Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye). I haven’t seen them acted before. Then WHAM BAM… just first episode and I already love them to death. The drama ended with me being heavily invested in it.
I hate ghost story because I’m afraid. And The Master’s Sun is exactly that and others.
But ohhh a few peeks here and there and I’m hooked. A BIG part of it I gotta blame my sister for tuning in to that channel and for the amazing chemistry between So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin that drew me in in the first place. They’re just daebak (good). Shoot, I’ll just block the ghost face with my hand in those scary scenarios. LOL So I ended up marathoning The Master’s Sun two weekends ago. Watched the finale last week with a BIG smile on my face.
Shark is my favorite drama of 2013. So far.
To understand why this drama is called Shark, read the dialogue below which can be found in episode 1.
Hae Woo: What do you like most in the world?
Yi Soo: Sharks.
Hae Woo: ??
Yi Soo: Sharks don’t have swim bladders.
Hae Woo: Then how do they live?
Yi Soo: To live, they must keep moving, since if they stop, they die. Even when they are asleep, they have to keep moving to stay alive.
Hae Woo: They sure live a tiresome life.
Yi Soo: Still, in the ocean, shark is the strongest.
Hae Woo: So is that why you like shark the most? Because they’re strong?
Yi Soo: No, I pity them. Because it doesn’t seem as if anyone would like shark.
I’ve been looking forward to this sageuk drama since the news came out… mainly for 3 reasons. One, because it starred Lee Dong Wook. I quite like his two previous work (Wild Romance and Scent of a Woman), two because Song Ji Hyo my favorite gal aka the ACE from Running Man is in it and three because I’m curious (궁금 해요) how are they going to make a fugitive last for 20 episodes! Won’t he ever get caught?
