Bad Guy

A freaking awesome new drama!!


Korean name: 나쁜 남자.

Starring Kim Nam Gil 김남길, Han Ga In 한가인, Kim Jae Wook 김재욱, Oh Yun Soo 오연수 and Jung So Min 정소민 .


Broadcast network is SBS and premiered on 26 May 2010, on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 21:55 Korean time.
This is scheduled for 20 episodes. And due to the World Cup, SBS had stopped airing this drama for 2 weeks as they had exclusive rights to broadcast the football games – or something like that -, and so, will be longer than 10 weeks counting from 26 May.

This is a story about a man’s quest for revenge. Gun-wook (Kim Nam Gil’s) plots revenge against Haeshin Group, a chaebol family, RICH family, who took him in thinking that he was the father’s illegitimate son, but then threw him away when they found out that they mistook him for Tae-sung (Kim Jae Wook).

Trailer:

The trailer opens with Kim Nam-gil’s narration: “The thing about cats is… they don’t just bite a mouse once and kill it. They pretend to let it go and play around with it, and finally kill the mouse when they get tired of it.” This is his way of describing his revenge plans for the Haeshin Group — which is the company to whom Tae-sung (Kim Jae-wook) is heir.

Kim Nam-gil’s Gun-wook meets Tae-sung in Japan, who challenges him on the bridge, “Now that I’ve told you to try and kill me, are you afraid? I said, kill!” Further complicating things is their intertwining fates with Jae-in (Han Ga-in).

To watch, at Mysoju for English subtitles and at Xiaoli.cc for Chinese subtitles.

And drama summary, here.

I started this drama because I needed something dark and mysterious, after watching happy ones like Oh! My Lady and Prosecutor Princess (which I will comment on really soon…), this is really really good. I love it, although it is only on its 7th episode. Although I feel that there are loopholes in the whole revenge plan, I am still so looking forward to it.

A point to note, I find it weird that Tae-sung is the heir to the group, because the father has another son, who is older than Tae-sung, so I don’t know. Unless it is the older sister’s (Oh Yun Soo’s) husband or something.

I am BACK!!

I am so sorry that I have not been updating at all. I had a really long break from here as I was studying for my Year 2 Finals and then had a short holiday having fun. I seriously hope that I have done well, but results will only be out on 15 of July, so still a long wait ahead.

Anyways, due to the long study break/holiday, there are lots of dramas waiting out there for me. So, I will put those that have attracted my attention and hopefully have the time to watch them. Also, I will be posting about some of the dramas that I have watched during my break time, reviews and what-nots. I hope you continue to follow this, although not updated as often as others, and enjoy the little opinions that I have on Korean dramas, Japanese dramas, the many many movies and everything in between.

Music drama and CF

Not a movie or a drama, but a CF. But I think it is a really good short short short movie.

I am not quite sure of the details, but what I do know: 2PM’s members are in it (I think not all though) and their song – Tik Tok, featuring Yoon Eun Hye. This is a beer advertisement for the brand Cass and I think the longer version is their music video.

Anyways, the videos:

2PM – Tik Tok MV feat. Yoon Eun Hye

These are the ones available now, I hope a third part is coming out.

60 seconds CF:

30 seconds CF – Nichkhun’s:

30 seconds CF – Taecyeon’s:

Don’s ask me what the 60 and 30 seconds ones mean. I only find both the 6 minutes ones good. I have just added them out of random-ness actually. Haha~

Personal Taste

Also known as 개인의 취향 Kaeinui Chwihyang.


The third and last drama to premier on 31 March 2010, on MBC, Wednesdays and Thursdays 21:55.

This drama stars Son Ye Jin 손예진, Lee Min Ho 이민호, and Kim Ji Suk 김지석.

This is actually a novel, but it is only available in Korean. However, Javabeans is doing a general review on it, here (scroll down until you see the title ‘Personal Taste the novel’), which I have read, and it is quite fun and entertaining. The drama differs in some way from the book though.

Jeon Jin Ho (Min Ho’s) is a straight guy who pretends to be gay in order to become a roommate to his female friend, Park Kae In (Ye Jin’s). His hobbies include organization and ironing, and he’s known for his stoic poker face. He’s a stickler for cleanliness, but he also has a talent for figuring out a women’s feelings. Kae In is very trusting even though she has a habit of being betrayed. However that doesn’t stop her from giving people the benefit of doubt and Jin Ho is no different. How will Kae In react when she finds out that her gay roommate is not actually gay at all and that he has fallen for her? – credits Javabeans.

And to watch, on Mysoju, when it is ready.

Trailers:

I seriously wonder how people in Korea are going to choose which drama to watch lah. Haha~ But I will definitely have no problem at all. Wait till exams are over, then ALL OUT –  first in line would be Oh! My Lady, Prosecutor Princess, then Personal Taste and finally Cinderella’s Sister. Oh! My Lady and Prosecutor Princess is definitely a MUST, but the other 2 will depend on varying factors, especially if Javabeans is doing the recap of episodes then can see whether it will be worth it or not. At the same time ‘quench’ my thirst for dramas. Haha~

Prosecutor Princess

Also known as 검사 프린세스.

Premiering on 31 March 2010, on SBS, Wednesdays and Thursdays on 21:55.

This stars Kim So Yeon 김소연 – woohoo! -, Park Shi Hoo 박시후, Han Jung Soo 한정수, and Choi Song Hyun 최송현.

Ma Hye-ri (So Yeon’s) is a prosecutor without much sense of duty who prefers to go shopping, while Seo In-woo (Shi Woo) is a cool lawyer. In-woo is a character who swoops in to help Hye-ri whenever she’s facing danger, but whose true intentions remain hidden; he is described as “mysterious” and will make audiences wonder if he’s a bad guy (or at least a sneaky one) after all. Yoon Se-Joon (Jung-soo’s) is a top prosecutor who fills out the love triangle.

Prosecutor Princess will incorporate a good amount of legal speak, but its PD assures viewers that the drama will focus more on keeping a bright and light vibe, rather than getting bogged down in heavy drama. – credits to Javabeans

Trailer:

I can’t wait for this drama as I love Kim So Yeon in Iris, but I’ll have to wait for after my exams. *sighs* Then I’ll go out for it. Especially since she is acting as a prosecutor, same like my line of studies. Haha~

Cinderella’s Sister

Also known as Cinderella Unni or 신데렐라 언니.

Premiering on 31 March, Wednesdays and Thursdays on KBS2 at 21:55.

Starring Moon Geun Young 근영 , Seo Woo 서우, Chun Jung Myung 천정명 and Taecyeon 택연 of 2pm.

This a drama with a modern twist, and the twist is far from the original classic story that I think most girls loved as a little child.

The drama is where Cinderella (Geun Young’s) is loved by her stepmother while her stepsister (Seo Woo’s) is not loved by her own mother at all. And so, the stepsister then takes revenge on Cinderella for all the years that she has suffered.

Or from what I understand.

The drama summary, here.

And to watch, in Mysoju, when it is ready.

Trailers:

Although not much can really be deduced from these.

As usual, I should only be watching this when exams are over.*sighs*
