  1. Never seen Chanyeol in a drama before. To me it does not matter if one is an idol or an actor. The most important factor is their acting ability. The actors feed off each other. If one is not at par with the other....it weakens a particular scene and hence the viewing experience. Therefore, I hope for a strong acting cast so that the story can come across the screen as the writer envisioned it. @bedifferent ......How awesome a memory of you seeing the guitarist play “Quein Sera” at Alhambra. All versions are beautiful but yes ...Michael Buble’s ‘Sway’ is definitely the best for me too.....Very excited even though have never been to Spain so cannot imagine how it must be for all who have been to Alhambra and Granada... Am loving everyone who is sharing their personal experiences. By the time the drama starts in November it will seem as if we’ve been there... @stroppyse Thanks for all the input on HB.... Will definitely look into his movies based on your info before the start of the drama... May I also express happiness at seeing so many old familiar faces and the many new ones making this forum come alive with their presence.. May it thrive even more with each passing day with more people, drama related news and discussions ... May I also take this opportunity to wish all mothers a very happy mother’s day. May it be a joyous one for all.
  2. Memories of Alhambra confirms Hyun Bin & Park Shin Hye casting Last month we shared Park Shin Hye is considering Hyun Bin's ‘Memories of the Alhambra.’ Yesterday, she confirmed to star in this upcoming tvN drama, which makes the biggest lineup for a K-drama we’ve seen in 2018 so far. “Shin Hye will stage a K-drama comeback after two years of absence through ‘Memories of the Alhambra’,” tvN shared yesterday. For Hyun Bin, this would be his comeback in three years. "I'm already looking forward to filming this drama, because I loved the script,” The ‘Doctor Crush’ actress told CJ E&M yesterday. “My on-screen character Jung Hee Joo is a bit different from the characters I've done in the past, and I can’t wait to introduce you to her. Please stay tuned!" In ‘Memories of the Alhambra,’ venture capitalist Yoo Jin Woo (Hyun Bin) travels to Granada, Spain, and spends a night in an old hostel run by Jung Hee Joo (Park Shin Hye). In addition to two of South Korea’s top actors, the ‘Memories of the Alhambra’ team consists of producer Ahn Gil Ho of ‘Stranger (Secret Forest)’ and screenwriter Song Jae Jung of ‘Nine: Nine Time Travels’ and ‘W.’ https://www.dramafever.com/news/memories-of-alhambra-confirms-hyun-bin--park-shin-hye-casting/
  3. ‘Memories of Alhambra’ Park Shin Hye, “I got excited reading the script and can’t wait for it” May 8, 2018 CastKo Memories of Alhambra, Park Shin Hye Actress Park Shin Hye will return to the small screen for the first time in after two years with her newest drama entitled ‘Memories of Alhambra’ that will air in tvN. Park Shin Hye who play the role of Jung Hee Joo, the owner of the old hostel in Granada, Spain said to PD Ahn Gil Ho, “I can’t wait to meet him in the filming set” She added, “I am so excited show this Jung Hee Joo character charm that completely stunning to all the viewers” and she also said that “I will try to work hard in the filming set. I hope you can support me and this drama” ‘Memories of Alhambra’ told strange story of a man who visited Granada Spain for a business trip and stopped by in an old hostel where he got himself tangled with the owner the of the hostel Jung Hee Joo. This drama is a work of combination from PD Ahn Gil Ho who is known for his work ‘Secret Forest’ and writer Song Jae Joong who wrote ‘Queen In Hyun’s Men’, ‘Nine times travel’ and ‘W’. Jung Hee Joo who will be played by Park Shin Hye in the drama is a cheerful character and hardworking one since she has to doo all the part0time jobs to make end meet for her grandmother and her sibling after the death of her parents. One day he met a mysterious man named Yoo jin Woo who suddenly pay a visit to her hostel. Park Shin Hye who will play the role of Jung Hee Joo said, “Jung Hee Joo will meet a mysterious man who is none other than the key to the strange thing that happened to her.”. http://my.castko.com/archives/26589
  4. May I second that too? Shinhye is finally returning to small screen after 2 years. Let’s show her that we stand with her and have been waiting for her. Visiting the drama forum will bring it to limelight igniting interest among others too. Also, becoming a follower of that thread is a good idea too. Obviously, this is her forum so must always be visited. Thanks.... looking forward to seeing you all there too
  5. Just like her followers, Park Shin Hye looks forward to Memories of the Alhambra. Keen to endear her fans by showing her exclusive charm and talent in projects she worked on, Park Shin Hye expresses elation for her small screen comeback after two years. The sought-after actress returns to portray the character of Jung Hee Joo, an owner of a rundown Korean-American hostel in Granada, Spain. She is sketched as a strong-willed woman, who takes on various part-time jobs to support her grandmother and siblings in an unfamiliar country since her parents departed early. The poignant meeting with a shrewd investment CEO Yoo Jin Woo (Hyun Bin) is going to draw a puzzling entanglement between the main characters. Memories of the Alhambra was earlier touted as a gripping sci-fi story about alternate realities fused in a hyped reality game, but we should expect more plot details released as the production gears on. This highly-anticipated project brings together the creative minds of writer Song Jae Jung, who brilliantly penned fantasy series, Queen In Hyun’s Man, Nine Times Travel, and W: Two Worlds, and director Ahn Gil Ho, who directed Stranger, the Grand Prize television drama winner of 54th Baeksang Arts Awards. Park Shin-hye said, “I felt good from the day I met the PD Ahn Gil Ho and writer Song Jae Jung, and I am looking forward to seeing the scenes of the shooting, and have a good time reading the script.” She further adds how Jung Hee Joo is a lovely person, and she is fired up to meet drama followers with her new character. With her versatility as an actress, Park Shin Hye is set to blend with the positive and clumsy personality of Jung Hee Joo. Her synergy with top actor Hyun Bin will surely radiate an endearing love pairing worthy of anticipation. Park Shin Hye currently enjoys her first variety show, Little House in the Woods. She last starred with Kim Rae Won in top-rating SBS drama, Doctors. Memories of Alhambra will be released in the second half of this year. https://medium.com/@hellokpop/park-shin-hye-hints-excitement-for-her-character-in-memories-of-the-alhambra-35273c396d87

  7. @bedifferent Yes, SH is not filming as yet. She is on vacations in Spain and thoroughly enjoying it. Seeing the magnificent Gaudí’s buildings...Sagrada Familia , Park Güell ( where she posted the guitarist playing that beautiful music that for life of me can’t recall the name.....the role of classic guitarist an$ tour guide that she will plam in MOA) Also, watched Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona match yesterday... its so exciting that don’t know how time will pass until Nov.. @Yippeun_eonnie Yes.....Let’s fall in love together with ‘Memories of Alhambra, Hyun Bin and Shin-Hye....because to me all things seem well aligned to take us along that path........well matched OTP, plot, beautiful setting of Granada and the PD/writer..... @LyraYoo Seeing those gifs/ videos it’s not surprising that he is cast in action movies a lot. Though, he has been very popular as a romantic hero too. That’s very promising for this drama which will have both rom/action with fantasy in addition. Shinhye is a great at action too getting rave reviews for doing the stunts herself as acknowledged by costar Kim Rae Won, PD besides the viewers. So the thought of them together makes me look forward to them ....besides the obviously beautiful visuals.. qq
  8. I have only watched HB’s and Song Hye Gyo’s ‘ Worlds Within’ ... i liked it and both together too ( shipped them at the time ) though I believe it was not a rating success like his ‘ My Lovely Sam Soon’ and ‘Secret Garden’....both I couldn’t go beyond ep 1. Not being helpful am I ? But, I really like HB....a charismatic star...
  9. This trip was planned and tickets bought 4 months back when Park Shin Hye did not know anything about this drama. It’s her destiny with Spain... The other one being SH and HB as costars... I wonder if she will stay back or return to SK to go to Spain with the team The rest of the cast announcement and script reading still needs to be done
  10. Park Shin Hye has worked with S Ji Sub and Yoo Seung Ho in 2013 on his music video 6 pm...ground.... so they are not total strangers .. the lunch should be interesting because they mus5 have lots to share of their experience of living off grid... also, it’s a casual setting. Lookin* forward to it..
  11. @Lolastarlight1 : Yes, it does seem odd that no supporting cast is announced and Shinhye is already there. It makes me think that she has gone earlier with rest of the team yet to join....... It’s generally been the pattern in the past that after a project and before a new one Shinhye travels and relaxes. She must have finished shooting for ‘The little house in the forest’. Hence I thought she might be making the most of the opportunity to see Spain as she prepares for her role in the drama. @bedifferent Thanks for sharing your personal experience of the place. That will make watching the drama even more enjoyable. It sounds like a beautiful and memorable hike. ShinHye did mention her legs were shaking as that pic was taken. I read that they strongly advice not to hike alone but in groups and to at once inform if someone goes missing. Just looking at these historically and beautifully fascinating pictures...Its an exciting thought that the filming for the drama might be in more places too other than Granada...
  12. Everyone very excited and anticipating the return of Hyun Bin after 3 years and Park Shin Hye after 2 years...to the small screen.. patiently waiting for further news related to the drama... supporting cast, script reading.....even a pic together....maybe from the BBQ meeting.. http://m.entertain.naver.com/read?oid=109&aid=0003774613 # Hyun Bin, Chungmuro ...... King's return Last year, Hyun Bin, who has won the theatrical performances with the movie 'Hyojo' and 'Daejin', appears in the drama in three years. In the first half of the year, it attracted 7.8 million viewers with 'cooperation' and swept the theater market during the New Year holidays. In the second half of the year,....audiences were mobilized as a "master" and proved to be the best actor in Chungmuro in 2017. Hyun Bin's heat will continue in 2018. Hyun Bin, who confirmed his appearance in ‘Memories of Alhambra Palace' on tvN, is a doctor of engineering and a successful investment businessman with a gifted game development ability in the play, and plays the talented leader of investment company Yu Jin-woo. In addition, the movie 'Prodigy' and 'negotiations' are ahead of the release, so I expect that it will be his year again. google translation..
  13. some pics from the festival in Granada in June... hope am able to post these pics been trying without success... Giving up for now... tried nth time... except for change in text colour nothing happened and use of spoilers ( maybe)
  14. quiet here..... got curious what it will be like in Granada, Spain in June. They did pick the right month to go there... wish I could post pics...completely forgot how after so long... here is what I found... May-June best time to visit Granada with comfortable temperatures and some of its most important cultural events. 1: Feria del Corpus Cristi is the city's biggest annual event ( fair). People get all dressed up for a week full of festivities ( day and night )including processions and bullfights. 2: The International Festival of Music and Dance of Granada is one of the most attractive in early summer in Spain. It features theatrical performances at the Alhambra and other historic sites around the city. The drama will have all this coupled with the incredible heritage of Granada, its monuments, its gardens and its history, the city during the first days of summer, in a party atmosphere as background setting. Now imagine all this as the background setting.... It excites me beyond belief.... To see our OTP with their story in these surroundings..... Can November come quick?
  15. @LyraYoo @Lolastarlight1 Thanks! All info very positive in regards to the quality of production and drama on the whole... 1: Producers: Big which means no scrimping and short cuts compromising the quality of drama viewing. 2: SJJ: innovative writer who likes to walk her own path. Justified by critical success and nature of her dramas. In recent times ‘W’ was written on her own. QIHM and Nine she had a co-writer. Haven’t watched any of the 3 so wonder what difference if any seen because of this. I remember watching ‘The three Musketeers ‘ that I enjoyed a lot. There does not seem to be any confusion in regards to MOA being action, fantasy, melo. But, mention of games setting does set me wondering as to their nature and extent.. 3: PD: I really loved Secret Forest, Mrs Cop 2015 ....with Rooftop Prince a fantasy which was a rating success ....so feel happy that he is in the directorial seat 4: No need to say anything about the beautiful setting of Alhambra Granada. It speaks for itself 5: last but not the least.....the leads...HB-PSH.....perfectly cast for action, mystery, melo and.....fantasy genre. Both big names home and abroad...should bring in the expected sales, ratings and critical acclaim (fingers crossed)
  16. yes, as long as the finished plot is a good one and drama executed well... Right now it seems to cater for the likes of all viewers.. action, mystery, melodrama, music, beautiful setting, loved cast and sci-fi... These days goid sci-fi does require use of tech depending on how much and what kind..Never watched any of SJJ’s drama so can only guess. Even if I had it doesn’t really ensure athis drama would be same since a writer does like to evolve and be innovative. On a a side note....wonder who will join as the supporting cast..
  17. @LyraYoo Thanks for the update ..... last news I had from Hancinema was posted April 10...It did not mention AR only action, fantasy & Romance below ”the series "Memories of the Alhambra" to be aired on the cable channel tvN that incorporates various genres of action, fantasy and romance “ I assumed since they mentioned fantasy it would encompass the use of AR technology Thanks for removing the misconception ...
  18. @dulcinea1 Alhambra is so beautiful ! Thanks for the pics. It would be perfect if they can make it happen by getting permission to do actual shooting there. So exciting just to see the pics...cannot imagine what will it be like to see them there. @Tiggie2 Hi Tiggie....great to see you again. Looking forward to reading your take on everything related to the drama. Just two clips to show how well Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin are matched in the action scenes too. SH did all the scenes herself without a double in ‘Doctors’ having specially trained in martial arts for the drama Hyun Bin makes the action scenes so effortless ( So sorry for the extra stuff that gets posted with the gifs....Just wanted the clips....am trying to recall how to post . Please bear with me) clips credit to the respective owners...
  19. @rori0711 good to see you here too...it’s been so long. It feels like old times. A very good feeling indeed Just remembered something from few articles where they called HB and SH as ‘romance artisans’ well here are they....thanks to HyunBinArab for HB’s gif and whoever made SH’sgif
  20. @Lolastarlight1 welcome! You came with a bang....I knew you would be a fountain of info with your resourcefulness. one thing is for sure that this drama will be one of a kind....with its setting, plot and treatment. Waiting for 6 months for only16 episodes Augmented realityAR is really cool...seen some of the videos. It will need a competent director like Ahn Gil Ho( Secret Forest) to incorporate in the story and execute it well. The thought is exciting! Also, hope the action involves Shinhye too along with HB. We have seen in Doctors how good she is. After listening to the memories of Alhambra on guitar.....cannot wait to see SH as a classic guitarist. Song Jae Jung has really researched well and seem to have gone into great details. All in all many aspects to look forward to besides the main HB-SH tandem.
  21. @alcides14ahjumma Now that you have Shinhye’s comeback you have started wishing for more... But, even if KWB cannot make it....do hope he is recovering well and in good physical and mental health. Actually with the synopsis as it is and only 16 episodes....I do NOT want a triangle. A good story, action and focus on their story is enough. The triangle is SH-HB-Alhambra, Granada Spain as far as I am concerned
  22. Here is some info regarding the PD and writer....Impressive work ! Here is hoping they bring their best forward in this drama. Hoping for some more details on the synopsis. Read somewhere about Augmented reality...( vague idea about it since am not good at tech lingo....but seen it used well in Start trek movie and Cdrama Love020....So that could be great if done well...)

  23. @verit. Hi yes....it was meant to be! SH-HB pairing caught the eyes of more than one casting team. Not surprised....Shinhye not only looks good with everyone but is a good actress with popularity to beat all. Also, was making a comeback after a long time They really wanted them for Fox Star Bride. Then her for Incheon. MOA team seemed to like them for the same reasons.... Do hope the drama turns out to be a good one .....better than what they rejected. It definitely has unique features. Location shooting at Beautiful setting of Alhambra, Granada..., Great PD, OTP, action melo (fantasy my only concern because it needs to be done well). Also, it’s only 16 episodes. Wanted to see SH for 24ep Overall, excited for the drama
  24. our charismatic and beautiful/handsome OTP.... @NileRose delighted to see you hear dearest friend. It wouldn’t have been same without you. @mshan welcome back. Shinhye’s drama comeback also brought many back too.
