  1. Reminiscing about Spain in sunset in Tvn’s Memories of the Alhambra Excrept for the whole articles and pics use the link below... Great, now I just want to get on the first flight to Spain! I’m really looking forward to the premiere of tvN’s upcoming romance Memories of the Alhambra, if only because I get to see Hyun Bin (The Negotiation) back on the small screen, with Park Shin-hye (Doctors) as his co-star. And if the three short teasers that were just released are anything to go by, this show is going to be gorgeous to look at. Memories of the Alhambra follows Yoo Jin-woo (played by Hyun Bin), the CEO of an investment firm, who travels to Granada, Spain on business. There, he ends up staying at a hostel that is owned by Park Shin-hye’s character, Jung Hee-joo. The synopsis doesn’t reveal much else besides that they both get caught up in a strange turn of events, which could turn out to be anything and everything with this writer, Song Jae-jung, of W–Two Worlds, Nine, and Queen In-hyun’s Man. Nine, and Queen In-hyun’s Man. The teasers didn’t reveal much about anything, but they definitely succeeded if the whole point of them was to whet my appetite for this show: The shots of southern Spain, the music, the lighting were all so romantic and atmospheric, and now I just want this show to start immediately. Besides Hyun Bin’s return to dramaland and my soft spot for Park Shin-hye, what makes me even more excited is knowing that Memories of the Alhambra is in pretty reliable hands, in terms of writing and directing. PD Ahn Gil-ho of Forest of Secrets is directing, and I’m curious to see how he fares with the suspense romance Alhambrapurports to be. Memories of the Alhambra will premiere at the end of the year, and is slated to start its run on December 1. http://www.dramabeans.com/2018/09/reminiscing-about-spain-at-sunset-in-tvns-memories-of-the-alhambra/
  2. it’s here....simply beautiful trailers ...lovely Shinhye, handsome Hyun Bin in one frame ( finally officially ) and the cinematography ! As someone rightly pointed out...Chuseok Gift for alll Happy Thanksgiving indeed... 1st Trailer..... 2nd Trailer...Park Shin Hye Version introducing 3rd Trailer Hyun Bin Version introducing Yoo Jin Woo
  3. Some new stuff as usual discovered by @Lolastarlight1 First pic with our lead Yoo Jin Woo ( Hyun Bin) and second his bright and amiable secretary, Seo Jung Hoon played by the actor Min Jin Woong.
  4. @alcides14ahjumma.....I wish that was the case because then we would have had something a long time back....... Actually these pics are not from the MOA team/ cast but were taken by a fan/admirer Tamara_Luca_ in Hungary while the team was there for filming few weeks back. She agreed to share them now courtesy LolaStarlight1on twitter. The MOA team still does not seem to have any intention of giving us any news at the moment it seems...September is starting ...just 21/2 months remaining. Let’s see if we have anything in this month....a mini-trailer?... lets see them them once again....the pic to tide us over until the next one.... Th@nks Tamara and Lola!
  5. Finally Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin captured together...filming in Hungary a while back Not a very clear picture but still looking great together....our Yoo Jin Woo and Jung Hee Joo... Pic credit: Tamara_Luca_ via LolaStarlight1
  6. @soziko50bal.....I have to agree with you ...The plot was well scripted, the characters...Dalpo , Inha, grandfather, father, reporters, brother ...all were interesting and their relationships with touches of humour lightening the dark areas.. The acting was top notch, director did his job well and I loved the music too.... a drama that I can watch again....something that I say for few ones only...
  7. @JojoCx3...somehow, I feel we will not realise in some places where a particular part of the drama has been filmed specially when it’s indoors....simply because of similar setting, landscape etc of the places. Did you notice that HB has been in the same jeans and jacket in Hungary which we saw him in Granada, Girona too So, If Chanyeol was not in Slovenia does not mean he will not be there. Just my feelings... Though, something did happen to him because there were blood stains on his T-shirt in the railway station pics in Hungary...as you pointed out so many conjectures because of lack of drama related info.
  8. It seems SH may be returning home today from Slovenia since her stylist is flying back.... So much assumptions and guess work based on the people surrounding the cast and those involved in the drama production.... what have they done to us...turning into a stalker??? @alcides14ahjumma.....sorry to convey the wrong impression but that’s not HB but the actor Seung Hoon Joong playing the character Min Jin Woong swimming in Bled Lake. He plays secretary to Yoo Jin Woo(HB) in the drama
  9. The saga of missing OTP continues...with everyone else being captured on film but them ....our fate that I have become resigned to... Here is Min Jin Woong ( Seo Hung Joon) swimming in the beautiful Lake Bled, Slovenia...He plays the role of the secretary to Yoo Jin Woo ( Hyun Bin) The visuals of this drama are not a joke....from the cast to the setting... would be worth watching for just that even for a non-interested viewer @alcides14ahjumma.... I think you have a long wait as far as seeing HB-SH together are concerned, my dear friend! i see the first trailer coming out in October with Press conference in Nov. We will be very lucky if we see a magazine spread of them together.... Pic ctto via Lolastarlight1 on twitter
  10. according to this , Park Shin Hye and Park Seo Joon will attend Ryo event in Seoul on Aug 27th cr AboutPSJ
  11. The team had been filming in these places for the last 3 days.... Info courtesy..... @Lolastarlight1 on twitter too....fount of everything related to the drama and often the first one.. pic cr 652south @JojoCx3....oh it’s already over! SH must have been busy with other commitments...
  12. @alcides14ahjumma....We don’t have much choice but to be patient! Below too as you can see....never together... But actually now I don’t have any expectations until October end...because right now HB has a MV out and another one coming next month. Also, with Netflix collaborations like MS they don’t seem to start publicity lots before telecast......so I am good.. @JojoCx3....I know SH will definitely go....she is already friends with DO since their MV Annoying brother together and now Chanyeol. But, even if she had not been she loves music and regularly attends concerts Below is HB ( in same jacket and jeans from Granada to Girona to Slovenia ) filming today in the vicinity of Hest ( Art gallery row ) in Ljubljana, Slovenia cr galerijahest via mylovelybinnie
  13. From SH’s stylist they have said their goodbyes to Budapest.... And now from another source below it seems they are headed for Slovenia to continue with their filming abroad... They are expected to return to South Korea in beginning September
  14. Chanyeol filming at the railway station.... No sign of HB and SH....as expected are their scenes so few that they cannot afford to show us a single pic too? pic cr as tagged
  15. ssinz7 IG update Aug 19... [ My Note: looks like the filming set.... or is it a place visited on their day off .....? ]
  16. ” I’m doing well” Park Shin Hye The Goddess beauty https://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=076&aid=0003301378 [ Shinhye ( Jung Hee Joo) posted pics on her IG Aug 16 from Hungary where she is these days for the filming of Memories of the Alhambra alonwith the rest of 5he cast until first week of Sep.... The lower one seems to be in a church....filming setting? Chanyeol as Jung See Joo her brother in MOA also posted on his IG too.....his pic reminds me of similar house in Granada with Mural on the wall.....filming in similar surroundings??....I wonder?.] Chanyeol IG Aug 16
  17. Lee Byung Hun x Kim Tae Ri vs Park Bo Gum x Song Hye Kyo vs Hyun Bin x Park Shin Hye, the best couple is? July 13, 2018 CastKo excrept.....from the above article.... A few new couples will rule the main screen this second half of this year and they’re ready to greet the viewers through their works. The candidate of the new legendary couples has appeared in the second half of this year. First is the couple that appeared earlier than others Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri for Kim Eun Sook’s newest work tvN ‘Mr.Sunshine’. meanwhile Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum will meet each other in the second half of this year. Best HyunBin and Park Shin Hye Have also announced their historical meeting. The two of them are currently filming their new drama entitled ‘Memories of the Alhambra’ in Granada Spain ( in Hungary now). Park Shin Hye will play the role of JungJee Hoo, a woman who runs the old hostel meanwhile Hyun Bin will play the role of CEO who went for a business trip inGranada and stayed in a hostel that is run by Jung Hee Joo. This drama is th3 combination of romantic comedy and fantasy written by the writer Song Jae Jung who is known for her great works. The two will get into series of strange things that happened to them after their meeting in the old hostel in the foreign country. The viewers are anticipating the story of the two of them that will unfold along with the beautiful and exotic background. [ Needless to say....Though, all good artists in their own right but .....Hyun Bin-Park Shin Hye to me appear to be the most appealing and charismatic OTP of them. Let’s see at the end of these series...]
  18. The main cast is in Budapest, Hungary too for filming .......and is expected to return early Sep. Park Shin Hye was live from Budapest Aug 12 .... in 3 clips below.... I guess today was off with filming starting from Monday, Aug 13 ? [TRANS] 120818 #ParkShinHye IG Live. PSH: Hello everyone. It’s been a while so I chose to greet you guys by doing this IG live. PSH: The weather here is really nice. Fan: Is it today your time to see sceneries? PSH: No, it’s just me since I don’t have shootings today. PSH: Looks like I don’t really have tight schedule here so I spend time going around. PSH: It’s so pretty here, since I really want to see it I went here. What special here is .... (?) isn’t that amazing? PSH: Right now I’m in Budapest. There’s a lot of people here. PSH: You can’t hear what I say? It’s seems like my network here is not really good.

Thank you..... @YYSY_ on twitter All Translations above PSH Live courtesy: @YYSY_ on twitter Thank you so much....
  19. I love the filming abroad since we get to travel other countries. But, I got to know more about the places, the culture, history etc while researching them because of curiosity while watching their dramas. That’s how I learned even more about South Korea, China, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia and recently Spain ( As I followed the team to Granada, Barcelona, Terrassa and Girona). Time to research Hungary and Slovenia now They did film in Seoul too after coming back from Spain uptil recently....Paradise City ( luxury resort, Seoul ), Incheon airport, a graffiti alley and I am sure other places we don’t know of. The varied nature of locations foreign and local does heighten interest in/curiosity about the plot. It’s a pity MOA is only a 16 ep drama. They surely will have footage for more episodes by the time filming winds up. The financial aspect of the drama is huge! From the cast, production team and filming abroad ...they haven’t spared the money. The investor Studio Dragon is producing the drama for Netflix. It’s also likely to be sold to China’s Subscription over-the-top OTT Video market that is booming. Millions are forecasted to watch in 2018 via the subscription streaming services like iQiyi, Youku Tudou or Tencent. ( source: The Investor Korea) So, I hope it does really well from all aspects...the financial, for our stars SH and HB AND from ours !
  20. From the departing team leaving for filming abroad ( Hungary/ Slovenia ) ...it seems it will be for a month again. Most probably because HB need to be back for his MV Premiere on 19th Sep. @frozentundra : we seem to be on the same page in regards to our expectations from the drama and writers in general... enjoy watching the three musketeers.... Pinocchio is one of my favourites too. I love her in all......
  21. @frozentundra : Totally agree there about people’s preconcieved expectations about a drama often letting them down specially in genre like fantasy /AR. That’s why I am quite content about not knowing any details about the plot or filming pictures. But, after reading what you had to say....will pray that Augmented reality will be part of it. Only completed ‘The Three Musketeers’ which I enjoyed. Started QIHM and ‘Nine...’ long time back but couldn’t go beyond Episodes 2 & 1 respectively. Not too enamoured of the Fantasy genre. Maybe, should once again give them a go after your illuminating input. Am hoping for a well written strong female protagonist....not an insipid forgettable one that is just an extension of the male lead. That would be a total waste of SH’s abilities and this OTP. Also, would make for a boring watch. QIHM and Nine were written in collaboration. SJJ won the best screenplay award for ‘ W ‘ so am hoping for even better results for MOA. After all one is supposed to get better with time and the big advantage is the cast / director to make her creation become alive for us viewers. The beautiful setting will surely make things even more watch worthy. With so many things to look forward to....I find myself ignoring the rare anxious moments and feel more excited about the drama.
  22. That’s great news....second phase of filming abroad begins....more beautiful and culturally rich places. I got to learn so much more about Spain while following the filming. Now, cannot wait to do that for Hungary and Slovenia... I believe HB has Press conference for his movie Negotiations on Aug 9 and SH also has CF filming.... @frozentundra : really appreciate your in-depth input on SJJ’s dramas and writing style. She sounds creative with her script...walking a path of her own. That’s bound to invite lots of discussions and critics. Something that brings lot of anticipation along with a little anxiety for HB-SH followers who want this highly lookforward comeback drama to do well. The Stranger PD at helm of the original script supported with excellent cast and what seems like hefty budget does translate into good production. Enough to look forward to Nov... Like you so rightly said we should have an open mind.....
  23. @verit : unable to see your posted YouTube link....don’t know if it’s just for me. What is it about....curious... @intrariver : No worries! You are welcome! I am not sure about the plot except what’s there for all to see. Everything from the story to BTS pics or rather any pic has been kept totally secret by the production team. What little we see is from the very enterprising fans and admirers of Shinhye and HB. i actually prefer not knowing the plot. But, pic of the OTP once a while wouldn’t be bad. It’s good to see you like SH too. She is definitely not shy! Never has been except when enacting a scene. She is also not overwhelmed in any situation or by anyone no matter how big a celebrity since she has been in the Entertainment industry from a very young age. She herself is a big Hallyu and global star in her own right. Just wanted to set that straight for those who don’t know about her. @lduc : just wanted to say thanks for keeping us updated at the earliest with the latest news about the drama and related matter. @frozentundra : having not watched any of SJJ’s dramas, I feel reassured from your post in regards to the plot/story. It’s the only area I am unsure about . Thanks
  24. @intrariver : Hi you are right about a number of conjectures floating around about the plot ...AR being one of the earliest one. I feel that we most probably will see it in the drama. It’s based on two things...fighting scenes were filmed in Alhambra involving warriors from past and secondly there are a few number of characters with video games background and expertise. in regards to the pic at Incheon...it seems that it’s not HB with SH. Also, SH is a thoroughly professional and seasoned actress with excellent chemistry with all her costars. I have no doubt that will be seen yet again with HB too. That’s why cannot wait to see them in Nov The drama starts November 19 and ends Jan 8 "..
  25. Its simply fantastic to see so many news ... First, to finally see our OTP in one frame as they film for MOA at Incheon airport..it makes me so very happy. They look great together.. @alcides14ahjumma Yes! it’s high time we have a name for 5he OTP. Maybe, once th3 drama starts...it will happen automatically Shinhye at #2 in Viki....with no drama for 2 yrs and she always stays among top 3. That’s, not a flash in the pan popularity which goes once the drama ends. Krystal sending food truck to th3 filming site with an ador@ble message...... ”Our beautiful Shinhye unnie should not get hot. From Krystal, who will always love Shin Hye. “ Their friendship lasting long after The Heirs ended... Friendship goals to aim for...
