I can understand the village but whole Seoul with TV intervievs and such. It just seemed so over the top. Perhaps now, but for a mining village, this was a big deal. I didn't think it was completely inplausible given that the majority of Korea was very, very poor and that Seoul Univerisity was a fa...

I'm liking SSH a lot better than I thought I would (when did he get such a DEFINED six pack???) Got Military? It does a body good. :D SSH gets better and better as the show progresses. His laid-back decency (mixed with a lot of rage) gives the show -- which as you progress just oozes with hate, hat...

KTH's acting is questionable and she might even make TOP look good And yet somehow I can visualize her in a love triangle including TOP whereas I couldn't with SYJ. TOP: "Noona.

So if LBH is the Main Man and KTH is the Main Lady, but there's also a guy who's supposed to be in the love triangle (which is usually the Second Guy), and SYJ is the Second Lady, where's TOP supposed to be in this? Let's just say if this is true, the best special effects we can hope for are shadow...

EoE is, indeed, deeply anchored in greek tragedy. the characters are bold and shades aren't welcome. Actually the show that's most currently anchored in greek-style tragedy is definitely Kingdom of the Winds. You have inevitable prophecy; you have intrigue between nation states with an ephemeral wh...

i am more and more disturbed while watching EoE. It only gets more disturbing in episode 14. At that point, they actually take a note from daehas like Eyes of Dawn and use a semi-real historical point onto Dong Wook. It's bitter, bitter stuff. East of Eden keeps pulling me though, because there's j...

To be honest I never really thought LBH would ever be back in the small screen considering his status, Definitely felt the same way. He really paid his dues on TV and had become one of the standard SBS leads for their blockbuster dramas. I didn't think he'd want to do that again. This is really a r...

On a more general note, hearing all this stuff about LBH has made me even more interested in this drama. T LBH is one of my favorite actors. When he plays dramatic, tough guy roles, there's just so, so much gravity there. His rage, his tenderness, his masculinity, etc. If you want to get a taste of...

Having a true professional on set (with high work ethics, too) might prove helpful to a newbie like TOP. He might be intimidated and fail badly, or they might enhance his performance crucially. For his defense, I've heard he's majoring in film and theater in college. (tho I'm not entirely sure how ...

but usually the lack of experience shows when there's just one newbie with big names (which I just assume they are, since they aren't familiar to me). The problem is that Lee Byung Hyun will eat him alive. Alive. He's not just an actor with true A-list movie star charisma (not unusual for other act...

Lee Byung Hun and Son Yeh Jin? In a big budget remake of Shiri? Sweet Mother (of) God (but how the heck can they afford both salaries and have anything left to shoot a show?) With that, I would love to see SYJ play alongside LBH in Iris, and I'm sure she would do a great job. Kobe, you're the Yul Br...

Honestly I'm still in shock. She was kind of an inspiration (just all the obstacles she overcame throughout her whole life) to me. Choi Jin Shil was maybe the most popular K-drama actress of the 90s. But that probably doesn't adequately describe what an icon she was. When you think of "Korean Trendy...

can't wait for The City of God. Anyone have some information about when it will be aired?
City of God was scrapped. But he's currently the lead in the blockbuster drama East of Eden. Best performance he's ever done.

She and the Dong Wul meet during the Gwang-ju Massacre or Uprising. It's pretty scary, actually. LDH's acting BTW is by far the best of all the younger ...
