  1. Being a Shin Hae Sun fan is such a joy. The dramas she chooses seem to push the envelope of her already incredible acting skills, breaking new ground each time. She is such a hard worker and more than once she has said she will work even harder. Music to the worlds ears. I can't wait to see what new mountain she climbs in her next drama.
  2. I was thrilled to discover that Netflix Canada is now showing Korean variety show Men on a Mission, as I know Shin Hae-Sun, along with Bae Jong-ok, are on one of the episodes. I have not watched it yet, but I had seen bits and pieces of it around the time of Innocence, usually without subtitles. So I’m really looking forward to seeing the whole episode with subtitles. However, I take slight exception with the the Netflix overview of the episode which includes, “Time to take acting lessons from top professional Bae Jong-ok and talented newcomer Shin Hye-Sun.” Newcomer? Seriously? Sh
  3. It seems impossible for some in the main stream media to focus on positives without drowning in negatives. Case in point is a February 4th Korea Times article "Historical comedy series 'Mr. Queen' on roll despite controversy", https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/art/2021/02/688_303581.html . Shin Hye Sun was given accolades and the ratings success is acknowledged, but at least half the article is about the dramas negative associations. First, its old news. Second, the producers are clearly innocent of malicious intent and have apologized and adjusted things accordingly many weeks ago - again
  4. Hello everyone. It's great to see a little burst of activity here these last few days. There certainly is a lot of buzz over Mr. Queen elsewhere online that I suspect is keeping everyone satiated with well deserved accolades for our hero Shin Hae Sun. I guess that happens when you dominate the screen and the ratings every single episode. It almost seems like Mr. Queen was written specifically for SHS. As has been said by many others, it's hard to imagine anyone else pulling off the role. I've always considered her to be acting royalty but she is Queen of the screen in every sense of the word
  5. I am very much enjoying Mr. Queen. Judging by the ratings, so are many others. I just read that there will be some 10 minute mini episodes after the main drama ends. Sounds good to me. Looking forward to hearing more about She's Dead in the coming months. Not sure I like the title though.
  6. I wish the best of the festive season to Shin Hae Sun lovers everywhere, and to Shin Hae Sun herself, whose acting is the perfect gift that keeps on giving. Thank you all for sharing and caring. Stay safe and warm.
  7. I sincerely hope that any controversy about the historical commentary in the comedy drama Mr. Queen will translate into even bigger audience ratings than the near record breaking ratings it has already achieved. People who weren't interested in this drama before may now want to see what the big deal is. If they have a functioning sense of humor they are in for a really good time, with the added bonus of watching Shin Hae Sun, one of Korea's best actresses, doing her acting magic.
  8. There are few human characteristics more important than a sense of humor. To be able to laugh, especially at ourselves, helps keep our lives balanced and re-energizes our souls. Looking forward to more Mr. Queen. Korean fiction for the soul.
  9. I watched the first 2 episodes with a great big smile on my face the whole time except when I was laughing out loud. I wish I understood Korean so I could focus more on watching Shin Hae Sun rather than reading subtitles, although the dialogue is hilarious. The expressions on her face are amazing and convey so much meaning. Such fun! So glad this colourful comedy is getting good ratings.
  10. I have a few thoughts. I have only watched a few historical k-dramas on Netflix and I found most of them rather silly, with the exception of Kingdom. I actually like silly as I'm sick of reality these days. I don't think these dramas were meant to be all that funny but they always seem to have plenty of comic relief. Mr. Queen seems to take silly historical dramas to new heights and is comedy at its core. Shin Hae Sun is about to prove, once again, how incredible an actress she is. She has already nailed serious, she will now nail comedic. She seems to draw her character instincts from a deep
  11. Since Covid started with all the social distancing and other requirements, I wondered how dramas or movie productions could even be made anymore. Do they test cast and crew every day and sanatize the whole set? I worry about everyone but as a SHS fan of course I worry about her most of all. But it was only in the last week or so that I heard about a few productions, including Mr. Queen, that had to temporarily shut down because someone tested positive. I know Hae Sun is safe but it's still nerve racking. We are probably all watching more TV now than we usually do. Cast and crew members are mor
  12. Mister Queen, as I think it will now be called in English, is going to be a fantastic eye popping journey. Knowing what an outstanding actor SHS is, I'm super excited to see her interpretation of this complex gender bender historical comedic role. Her pose in the poster made me laugh out loud already.
  13. Comedy Film "Collectors" opens at top of local box office. That is a headline from an article in November 5th Korea Times. https://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/art/2020/11/689_298811.html I love the fact that Shin Hae Sun's last two movies opened at the top of the box office (but it doesn't surprise me). Congratulations!
