I absolutely loved Descendants of the Sun. I have a brother-in-law who is a medic on the army and so it was great to watch a show that reflected a lot of how he feels about being a soldier and a doctor. The video drama club talks a little bit about what we liked. Also, Song Jae Rim was absolutely adorable in Thumping Spike. *sigh* loved him.
Dramafever had their first celebrity google hangout. Kim Woo Bin was awesome enough to be the first and help promote his movie “The Technicians” which is currently showing on Dramafever. They even allowed members a chance to talk to him directly. I thought about signing up for that, but figured that it would probably be more fun for the younger ones. As much as I like Kim Woo Bin, we shouldn’t scare the poor boy. lol
My friends at DF worked really hard to make this google hangout go well and I just have to say that they did a great job. Even though I didn’t talk directly with Woo Bin, it still felt intimate and personal and I smiled like a giddy school girl the whole time.
Some of the things I found most interesting from the interview:
-he likes both cats and dogs.
-he likes to draw and paint and considering he mentioned having all the supplies for such passions, I imagine he has an art room.
-His favorite Hollywood celebrity is Brad Pitt. Now this became really funny because they don’t call him Brad. For whatever reason, mostly due to the quirks of the language, they say Bang instead. Well, that’s the Korean word for bread. *chuckles* Pair that up with polite honorifics for an older male and basically they call him ‘older brother bread”. I will NEVER be able to think about Brad Pitt’s name the same way again.
-He is serious about becoming a good actor. So he is making a list of 100 goals that will help become a good actor. Attributes to work on, skills to gain. He does the same thing with his character developments. He mentioned in another interview that each character he portrays has to answer a 100 item questionnaire. That sort of dedication is going to lead him to great places.
For more of this interview, you can watch this link to the hangout yourself. I have one more question… whose office were they using?
Kim Woo Bin was such a great sport about this whole thing. He was a champ. Great job.
After a year of volunteer recapping for Dramafever, I was able to apply to join their news team in December. The last 3 months have been a whirlwind and beyond awesome. This blog has experienced serious neglect because both Taleena and I are working for DF news.
We are both still recapping shows for DF but we’re also producing news articles. Both of us are enjoying ourselves immensely. I love being able to tell people that I get paid to write about my hobby. The look of jealousy on their faces is a balm after having lost my previous career and struggling so long to find something my new circumstances will allow me to do.
I love it. I can’t believe I get paid to do this. Make sure to look at our articles, as there are bonuses for individual views. We’ll try to remember to post them here. lol
Also, our current Drama Club recaps can be found on the recaps page. We are currently reviewing Blood, Kill Me Heal Me, Dear Mom and Hyde, Jekyll and Me
Taleena and I have been busy girls lately. We are on so many drama clubs for Dramafever that this poor little blog gets sorely neglected. I’ve updated the links to our most recent articles for Tomorrow’s Cantabile, which just ended. *sob* Also updated Say I Do Again, Modern Farmer, Greatest Marriage, High School Love On and Mr. Baek. We have also started two new ones. The second season of After School: Lucky or Not has finally started. *YAY* And we are taking on a historical in The King’s Face starring Seo In Guk and our favorite psychopath Shin Sung Rok.
I also did a recent DF movie review for Lady Daddy which was a sweet film.
Hyun Bin’s first move after leaving his mandatory military service was to play King Jeongjo in Fatal Encounter. Excellent movie, but make sure you understand the basic history of his situation when he took the thrown or the first 10 minutes will be very confusing.
Here’s my Dramafever movie review. Aunnie and Firnlambe join me and discuss what we liked and didn’t like. I also included that background history information that you will need if you don’t know who this character is already.
