  1. Name : Attention love Summary : A boy and a girl were destined to be together since birth. A long time ago, two best friends each had a child. One named his son Li Zheng, which means "attention", and the other named his daughter Shao Xi, which means "at ease" in military terminology. The two kids grew up to embody their names, with Li Zheng being diligent and paying extra attention to everything he wants to achieve in life and Shao Xi being more laid back and lazy in her approach to life and school. When Li Zheng returns to Taiwan after growing up in Japan, he meets Shao Xi for the first time in high school. Despite their polar opposite personalities, the strong pull of their fates bring them together.

  2. I'm not a fan of high school dramas but this one caught my eyes. It has many remakes because the original became a hit in Norway. I've watched the german and italian remakes, I like more the italian version, the leads are so beautiful together . Yes, I am this shallow Name : Skam Summary : a teen web drama series about the daily life of teenagers. Each season has its own theme and follows a new main character . Watch when you are in mood for : high school life. The series received critical acclaims for its portrayal of societal issues such as homophobia, sexual abuse, racism. Visual factor : Edoardo Icanti Emotional moments you like : when Edoardo and Eleonora finally make up and date again or their first kiss Annoying bits : Eleonora's/ Mia's friend who almost ruined the relationship between Eleonora/ Mia and her beau because of her obsession. The friend in the german version was more annoying. Overall grade: 9/10 Skam Italia German Skam : Druck I actually don't watch telenovas, I watch this one for its plot. The poster of your telenova makes me think it is a fantasy genre, it reminds me of twilight lol
  3. I havent finished it yet. There are indeed many twists . I quackle when something happens .

Name: verdades secretas / hidden truths Summary : The plot mainly features the story of a lass, Angel (Camila Queiroz) who is lured by a famous modeling agency that secretly recruits young women to prostitution and the life of the models behind the curtains, a dangerous obsession of a man that put mother and daughter on a crazy love triangle and drug addiction.

Wow those are some old series. I've watched only Gumus ( some episodes here and there).
  5. omo another one who has watched a turkish series , welcome to the club ! Yeah it's very intense, that's how I like dramas or movies. The fact Hurem is a grey character makes the series magnificent . That's something kdramas lack as the korean characters are either black or white most of the time. Her condition, being an ukranian slave and having her family killed, makes her to seek any mean for survival. She knows that if she doesn't become a concubine for the sultan Suleiman, she will live miserably. That's why she entices some empathy. She is a very intelligent woman and very ambitious too. Once she found out how to survive she put all her efforts into seducing the sultan and eliminating any bareer in her way, i.e the other concubine. She tried throughout the series to make her fall from the Sultan's grace, Her ambition was immeasurable as she was behind most of the events occurring in the country and the Palace. Name : Ezel Summary : Ömer, a young man returning from military service, is set up by his friends and fiancé and ends up in prison for ten years. He fakes his own death and manages to escape. He re-creates himself as ‘Ezel’, a high-end gambler who is outwardly a successful man, but inwardly driven by one thing - his determination to understand why the people he loved betrayed him, and take his revenge.

  6. @rahma92 thanks for those HD pics !! Doesn't the MC look like the actor, Park Chul Min ? He and YSH are really close and he has once mceed his FM. From my little knowledge in korean, YSH said he was really grateful and happy that he has the opportunity to do a FM on his birthday and celebrate his birthday with his fans I wish his iglive could be translated somehow. I want him to go live more often, looking at his face is already enough for me . It feels amazing when he is up close and interacts with his fans, reading their comments. Unpopular opinion, I prefer his longer hair.
  7. Another must-watch Turkish series. If koreans are obsessed with Joseon, turkish people are then obsessed with the Ottoman Empire. Name : Muhteşem Yüzyıl / The magnificent century Summary : It tells the life of the Ottoman sultan, Suleiman who has the strong ambition to establish an empire more powerful than the Alexander the Great ever did. With the help of his friend, during his 46-year reign he conquered the West and East and consolided his power. The series focuses on the tension between Christian Europe and Ottoman Empire. But the events take a turn when Aleksandra, an ukranian priest, was caught during one of his conquests and becomes a slave. The sultan falls in love with her.... Watch when you are in the mood for : Intrique, political and palace issues, a lot of battles. Visual factor : Costumes, art, decoration, actors Emotional moments : The moment Aleksandra is chosen as the Sultan's favourite and becomes his concubine Annoying bits you might ignore : no annoying bits Overall grade : A+
  8. I mainly watched it for the OTP, it's an intense/ makjang drama but not all turkish series are like that. That's the thing I hate about them, they are way too long and have too many fillers. I don't have an answer for this. It doesn't help when they have many seasons, they operate like the US. I have just found that Turkey is the world's second exporter of series behind USA. Many of them are available on netflix. I'm going to recommend the most known series, I am sure there must be some eng subs for those. If you start watching Turkish series, you can't bypass at least this one, it's a legendary drama. Name : Ask-i Memnu / forbidden love Summary : It's an adaptation of the namesake novel written in 1900. A widower lives in a mansion with his two children . He marries a young woman. A few months after the wedding, his wife deceives him with his distant nephew who has been living at home since the death of his parents and who considers him as his uncle. Watch when you are in the mood for : A saga with a blend of secrets, greed, ambition, twists and villains where every person has their own agenda Visual factor : Acting of the leads, breathtaking locales, the mansion on the shore of Bosphorus strait, the luxurious lifestyle of the family living in the mansion Emotional moments : The shocking finale Annoying bits : no annoying bits Overall grade : 9/10 @thistle Thanks for the recommendation, I will try to watch it !
  9. OMO !!!! Someone who has watched SBA . The chemistry of the OTP was on fire I'll come with my list of recommended dramas, even turkish dramas !! I used to watch them, so the ones I know are around 10+ years old.
  10. Im shocked too !! I saw it too late Im waiting for someone to upload the video. No there was a MC, a male.
  11. Messages from his JP fanclub & story J company I just cannot watch dramas or movies filled with flaws. If an actor I like is in them, it's too bad then. For MSH, I dropped it and watched the short clips in SBS, kokowa and viki youtube account. I looked for YSH's parts. Hence I can still skip his dramas.
  12. @See Wong we have different ways to cope with it. I don't mind him taking months off and doing his own things like car racing. I don't moan about it because he has always been like this. I've learned to be patient and wait for his return. I prefer to not be optimistic since it could be another wave of disappointment. I want to be proven wrong regarding his choice. But I see all these red flags telling me it's going to be another bad drama. Of course, I will support him even though I might skip his drama. Last year I continued posting MSH news despite the fact I had dropped it. I have almost moved on. I am someone who quickly moves on when I encounter any bump haha.
  13. I wish him success with this new romcom . It's not confirmed but we can deduct from the latest news he will choose Superstar Miss Lee as his next work. I'm disappointed and right now Im licking my wounds. Let's wish his romcom will get good ratings at least. Nope I disagree, he is inconsistent. To quote his words : " However, as much as possible, I want to avoid roles that are the same as or overlap with something I’ve done before. I think now is the time for me to try a genre that I haven’t been able to attempt before.” The last sentence gave us hope he would try a different genre and hone more his acting skills. I would have never imagined a few years ago that YSH would one day play a cheesy sexy role, going topless and doing multiple bed scenes. The webtoon has quite a few bed scenes so I expect the drama adaptation to have 2. Indeed it can be a challenge for him but I want to remind that YSH has always been known for his maturity and acted in a lot of dramas with mature vibes. Maybe people have forgotten it because of his romcoms. If he wants to break his goody mommy boy image, I prefer him to do it with his acting showing his maturity as an actor ( like IU in my ajusshi, Seo In Guk in the smile has left your eyes, Jun Kyung Ho in Cruel city/ heartless city). Showing your maturity and your manliness is not just about being sexy and revealing skin. I'm not annoyed that it is a female centric drama. The reason of my rant is not because of that. I'm afraid it will turn into a show about the female lead neglecting the male lead. Many dramas who are male-centric or female-centric tend to focus on one lead, elevating him/her at the expense of the character development of the other lead that in the end is used as a plot device and becomes a victim of bad writing. I don't want this to happen to YSH simply, hence I said the drama might benefit the female actress rather than him.
  14. We've already been through this. It's a deja vu. After IANAR he said he didn't want to do a romcom soon but the year after he chose another one ! Why am I surprised though? Each time I lower my expectations but I still get disappointed. Getting good ratings is an achievement in itself. Not lying, I'm going to be quite annoyed if his romcom ( assuming he chooses it) gets poor ratings.
  15. Yeah it looks like to me the female lead will take all the spotlight. I read the first chapters of the webtoon for free actually. And in the first chapters, the male lead doesn't appear much. All the focus is on the female lead and the body swapping. He made us hoping uselessly with his interview : " I want to try a different genre and challenge". I thought he would choose a strong/ bold character. I'm kind of gutted. No confirmation of the PD. But the writer is almost a new one with only a few works under her belt IANAR was directed by a good PD, but look at what happened. Writing is the heart, if there are cracks because of the writing even a mindblowing performance from actors and a high quality directing cant save or cover the writing's flaws Yes the rumours say it will either air at the end of this year or the beginning of next year. Not surprised though. YSH likes to film on winter.
  16. That's another reason to me that he should refuse it. Since the plot is focused on the female lead, YSH will not be given some spotlight. In the end the drama might benefit the female actress rather than him. Thus, YSH will not have made a step forward for his career, which he really needs as he keeps taking steps backwards. We have been saying for months that we hope he chooses a good drama with a good role. It's because we know that he must go forward and get a role that will finally make him to go back to where he was before IANAR & MSH. The drama will surely get buzz with YSH and another big actress attached to it. But we should rather take a look at the aftermath. I don't think the romcom has the potential to help him getting better offers. He is going to build for himself an image of a cheesy guy who is sexy. I can already imagine that after its completion he will be snowed under offers for characters that are sexy.
  17. yes. Hence I said it's good and bad news. I can only deeply sigh. I thought YSH was over with romcoms and wanted challenge. So I guess his challenge will be to act sexy ??!! People story is a production company, so it's good that BS is affiliated with it and the actors under BS will be cast in productions by Story J . BS will become more competitive. However people story is the one that produced ruler too. Given their modus operandi, they like to make noise and hype up a drama written by a new writer who is clueless about writing ( that's what happened with ruler). And remember the rumours about superstar Miss Lee, that a big actress got the offer. So I can assume if YSH accepts it, they will use the same marketing again. YSH + big actress = noise and buzz but with poor results. Seeing how BS has merged with another company to be more competitive, its size went from a middle-size company to a big size company. Let's see how it will affect the actors. To be honest, I am disappointed with BS and their management with YSH. I expected better. Since BS is now a big company in terms of size, I wish YSH will change agencies and go to another big agency who is more competent, will truly help him and give him more work. Until now I haven't seen any particular change between BS and his former agency. I want YSH to stay away from people story company and anything related to Ruler.
  18. Translation of the BTS YSH: Hello, I am Yoo Seung Ho Q. Before the photoshoot what did you do ? YSH: Hmm... I read books( laughs). It went normally Q. Do you have an ideal pose for today? YSH: No, I don't( laughs ) Q. Which places you've visited are the most memorable? YSH: I went to Vietnam a while ago. Vietnam was really beautiful. The other places I went so far... ( thinks) I really liked Hawaï. Caption : The reason YSH likes Hawaï YSH: Really...I watched movies.. the feeling...people, the atmosphere. Q. What was the most memorable thing in Hawaï ? YSH: Is it food ? I don't remember the food I ate. But that day, long before going to the military, the thing I liked the most, whatever you say.. Very popular DJs came to Hawaï, 20-30 people set up their own cabins on the side of the road and listened to their favorite songs and drinked. The season ( the time) was really convenient. I don't know exactly but it was really fun and interesting. Q. Places you want to visit ? YSH: I want to visit the places I haven't been yet. Q. Do you usually wear such clothes ? YSH: This is only.. there is nothing inside ( laughs). No... I cant wear what I want. Caption : He lists the places where this kind of style can be worn. Q. What is your everyday's style ? YSH: I wear T-shirt and pants. In fact, since I am not interested in clothes, it's hard for me to choose T-shirts. That's why I have about 20-30 T-shirts. Everyday I wear different clothes but it's not terrorist fashion. Ordinary, I wear very ordinary clothes. Caption: He's not a fashion terrorist, he only doesn't have interest Q. It is because of the lack of trust in fashion that you dont care about appearance ? YSH: ( laughs) No,No .... It's only because I'm not interested . Q. What do you think about your appearance ? YSH: ( laughing on the floor while thinking..) Q. The program after the shooting ? YSH: I have to eat and go to home. I don't have to go but I'm going. I mean there's nothing to do. Housekeeping, online shopping, sleeping. Sorry for the long delay!! His japanese fans paid ads in Seoul station for his upcoming birthday. The news of the merging is at the same time good and bad in my opinion. I will explain it later.
