Dream High‘s cutie Kim Soo Hyun dons the traditional Korean hanbok to usher in the new lunar year. I’m an avid follower of the drama Dream High and the adorable and steadfast Sam-dong (Kim Soo Hyun) is my favourite character after Go Hye-mi (Suzy) 😀 Kim is such a natural on screen and his Sam-dong is so so charming!

With casting finally complete, MBC’s romantic-comedy series My Princess held its first script reading on the 20th this month.  Present were the drama’s leads, Song Seung Heon (East of Eden), Kim Tae Hee (IRIS), Ryu Soo Young (Lawyers of Korea) and Park Ye Jin (Queen Seon Deok). The 3-hour long rehearsal was apparently a first meeting for the cast, but the atmosphere was described as comfortable and light-hearted.

Here’s Song Hye Kyo for the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

[A Song Hye Kyo post to follow up on a Binnie one, how appropriate! Lol.]

Secret Garden is turning out to be very, very winning. The characters are interesting and layered, the dynamics funny and the premise engaging. I can’t say I’m hooked, but I AM committed to it already!

Hyun Bin as Kim Joo-won, CEO of a department store

I knew this guy has comic chops, but I’m still pleasantly surprised! I’ve seen the most of Hyun Bin in melodrama Snow Queen, and bits in Kim Sam Soon and Worlds Within. Here in Secret Garden, he’s so engaging a character! He’s outwardly cool and aloof, but we’ve also caught a bit of his sincere side. Besides, he’s a tad immature (thus providing endless entertainment for us), has a glib tongue (naughty witty?), and knows how to get his way (you want your man to be a MAN, don’t you?). Shall I say, flawed in the most attractive way possible? Teehee.

Currently fangirling over:

Chinese table tennis star Zhang Jike (currently ranked world no. 4)

He’s so adorable.. and apparently he’s quite rebellious/naughty too, just my cup of tea! :pp

I’m not really excited about the idea of body swap in the upcoming weekend drama Secret Garden, and it’s described as a melodrama.. isn’t that taking itself too seriously? Buuut it’s got Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won, who’re both looking good in the stills released. The drama which premieres November 13 has released its official posters (and the first of the two really channels You’re Beautiful for me teehee).

I wonder if there’s any significance in the drama title.. or thematic resemblance to the novel?

I wonder how that pose came about -.-

Anw, I love how Moon Geun Young looks at the production press conference of Mary Stayed Out All Night. The dress is cute, and the shoes are a highlight! She even has a lovely healthy glow.

  

The drama airs next week, can’t wait! 🙂

[Okay this has been talked-about for a while now, but I’m still intrigued.]

Barbie Hsu (Da S) is engaged to Chinese 2nd generation chaebol Wang Xiaofei! Their whirlwind romance has been causing a storm in the Chinese media and speculations finally came to an end with Wang’s confirmation of their engagement on his Wei Bo on 29th Oct afternoon. The two apparently met and fell in love at first sight at Taiwanese actress Ady An‘s birthday party in Beijing, and are planning to marry in February next year.

I became inexplicably drawn to Sungkyunkwan Scandal from like episode 8, and it definitely has a lot to do with the awfully sexy and charismatic Yoo Ah In! Omg, that guy totally owns my heart now ❤

It’s not like I don’t know that Sun-joon and Yoon-hee are the OTP and Sun-joon truly deserves her love and affection. (Not that Guh-ro doesn’t, really!) So one moment I’m giggling at the cuteness of the OTP, and another moment I’m clutching my chest in hurt for my Guh-ro. Show is seriously turning me schizophrenic.
