I can say whatever I want, @mktb! I'm not calling her names or insult her. I'm explaining why I don't like her acting... period. Just like I can say what I don't like or like about uri Chaewonnie's acting. Everyone has their weaknesses/strengths but when we live in a world where I cannot criticise the weaknesses but only bless what's good then we don't need forums like this. We're all grown up people! No need to tell me what I can do and what not.
@evergreen I have no particular favourite writer but the ones you mentioned I like. There were no many good dramas in the past 2 years unfortunately so I have lost my trust. I would like to see MCW in a cable drama because they're taking more risks and they take more time filming prior to airing the drama. Also I think MCW needs a good director. NG director did a good job in taking her strength as an actress to hide her weakness. So it's important she gets a director who knows how to work with her. And thank you so much for posting the link @jeonghyang!
Yes. Seems like it's Moon Geun Young who is in talks for the new drama. I'm happy tbh... I like Kang Ji Hwan but I don't see MCW with him. I love how uri Chaewonnie left this message on DC... good to know she knows we're anticipating her comeback to the small screen.
I've seen all these comments about SJK and SHK... and I kinda lol'd. It's not like they went out for dinner on their own. It was with the crew - so basically they did some team building - very common in Korea - while getting ready for the next months filming. Actually MCW and SJK started working on "Nice Guy" WAY earlier... I think 7 months prior to the film airing (considering there is still no airing date for DoS yet). If I remember it correctly they even met with the writer to get to know their characters. On a sidenote: I'm not very fond of SHK's acting either... she is pretty bland. I remember her in "That Winter, The Wind Blows" and playing a blind woman fit her very well because she is great in having dead eyes. I know this sounds harsh but that's how I feel. Her face doesn't show any emotion - all she can do is look pretty. And the reason why she got cast over more talented actresses is because she has a lot of popularity/stardom in Korea. And they need that because this drama is SO expensive they NEED high ratings - they need a successfull drama. And even though SJK is very popular as well I don't think he does have the same amount of stardom as SHK. So KBS chose pretty/popularity over talent. I'm going to check out the drama for SJK but I can only laugh at the people saying that Song-Song will have great chemistry. SJK is capable of having chemistry with a stone. lol
@zoe13 BBJX is short for Bu Bu Jing Xin. It's a Chinese drama from 2011 which was really popular. And there were news that this drama is going to get a Korean remake. The production is still in the early stages so it's possible it won't air until 2016.
Mmmh.... Thanks for posting the article, @anoosha! I don't know! I don't have a good feeling. Especially with the writer... I want Chaewonnie's comeback to be powerful and GOOD! It needs to be a hit rather than a miss. It's been so long and she can't risk doing a drama with a weak writer. I don't care if the PD is from Healer - which seemed to be a good drama considering how crappy last year was - because the PD doesn't write the show. Okay we'll see! First I'm looking forward to MCW making an appearance at the BiFan tomorrow.
@cedricgordon I hope she doesn't accept. I mean was Healer good!? I haven't watched it. *walks to dramawiki* Mmmh.... I know this drama existed but no idea if it was good, great or brilliant. Or was it a trainwreck!? But I don't want uri Chaewonnie to come back with 8-episode-drama. If it were on cable then yes but KBS!? I hate she has this strong connection with KBS. A lot of good dramas are lost for her because of that.
For those who think ChaeKi isn't happening... please rewatch THIS VIDEO and around 4:10 MCW is saying "Joong Ki..." *looks to him* and adds "sshi" with a lovely smile. Now tell me there wasn't any attraction between these two! And also you hear people laughing at this in the background... like a knowing laugh. *drops mic*
OH YAY!! I'm so happy for her! Congratulations to uri Chaewonnie! And yes I'm happily waiting for her return to the small screen as long as it is a project she supports fully. So I can wait until next year if there is not good/interesting offer.
