  1. trendingkdrama --------------------- Lee Joon Gi To Reunite With IU For “Hotel Del Luna” Cameo Jul 17, 2019 by E. Cha Lee Joon Gi and IU’s friendship is still going strong! On July 18, Lee Joon Gi’s agency Namoo Actors announced that the actor would be making a cameo appearance in IU’s new drama “Hotel Del Luna.” A representative of the agency confirmed, “Lee Joon Gi will be making a special appearance in Episode 3 of tvN’s Saturday-Sunday drama ‘Hotel Del Luna.'” Namoo Actors went on to reveal that Lee Joon Gi’s cameo was a result of his ongoing friendship with his “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” co-star IU, stating, “This special appearance came about because of his friendship with IU, with whom he appeared in a previous project.” To catch Lee Joon Gi’s appearance in “Hotel Del Luna,” tune in to the next episode on July 20 at 9 p.m. KST! https://www.soompi.com/article/1339494wpp/lee-joon-gi-to-reunite-with-iu-for-hotel-del-luna-cameo -------------------------------- Adding article First Impressions: Hotel Del Luna http://www.dramapanda.com/2019/07/first-impressions-hotel-del-luna.html It's much darker and complicated than I ever expected which is a nice surprise, giving us a fashionista of a cold soul that's self-deprecating when it comes to her existence and a young man scared to his core from the frightful ghosts he can now see. It's the characters themselves that make this feel like a dark comedy of sorts with noir components due to the supernatural elements and as a result, we get a unique series. The intricacies presented in relation to Man-Wol from the very start add to the mysticism and the idea of destiny which forms a connection between our main leads. The revelations of Man-Wol's past makes the show more interesting as she's shrouded with an air of opulence in the present, a striking contrast to what we see her as in the beginning of the pilot episode. There's no confusion or guessing as to how Man-Wol became the owner but rather what prompts her to travel far distances to a mythical house that's only rumoured to exist, so we're left to guess the why aspect. She's an individual that's unique in the sense that there's a constant countenance of indefinite sorrow from having lived so long and having to emotionally detach herself from humans in order to continue existing without really living. Her slight obsession and single determination to have Chan-Seong as head Manager of her hotel seems a little odd considering her personality but it goes to show how much she needs someone else at her side. What I absolutely adore about the show is the direction the Writes and production team have taken in portraying the supernatural-fantasy elements with a modern twist. The hotel itself looks like it came right out of The Great Gatsbybut each of its rooms is unique and designed for its individual occupants, one door may lead to an actual beach while another to wintry mountains, or a library large enough to hold every single book in existence. The journey to the afterlife requires souls to cross an actual bridge, driven there by 'heaven's' car once a Grim Reaper comes to accompany them. It's all these instances that make the show extremely fun to watch and open to endless possibilities of the imagination. Even the more intentional supernatural elements that are vital to the drama's plot are noteworthy. Man-Wol's sword which she uses to exact her revenge is engraved with 'Full Moon' being engulfed by a mystical tree which is the foundation and central 'heart' of the guest house/hotel. The sword isn't hers (most likely considering the information we're given so far) but it captures her life's essence and deepens the bonds Man-Wol and Chan-Seong have since the tree comes to life and bears flowers in the presence of Chan-Seong and his father. The tree is otherwise lifeless and I somehow get the feeling that it's a direct reflection of Man-Wol's soul and Chan-Seong's past life. I like how the show can be unpredictable with the daily operations of the hotel and its guests but the nuances when it comes to the core supernatural story, is compelling and distinctively drawn out for us to interpret. And this gives us a change of pace to what we've been getting lately with a lot of other K-dramas so this series is clearly out to shake the drama world along with the fashion industry. A magical world full of imagination and ghosts, Hotel Del Luna is unique in style and tone, full of charms and concepts of life and death with clear conditions. The visuals are stunning with a sprinkle of spookiness and conflicting characters to keep you thoroughly entertained. Release Date: July 13, 2019 (Eng Sub available on Viki)

  5. ep 4 vs ep 16 https://www.soompi.com/article/1327563wpp/7-k-drama-male-leads-who-know-how-to-say-theyre-sorry 7 K-Drama Male Leads Who Know How To Say They’re Sorry FEATURES May 30, 2019 by Azra_A When you’ve been watching K-dramas for a while, there are certain characteristics you come to expect from your male lead. Obviously, he has to be hot; that’s the law. It’s also pretty likely he will be rich. If he’s not rich, he’s probably talented at something — we’re talking genius level talent here. And if he’s hot, rich and/or talented, he’s almost certainly going to be full of himself! In a world full of smarmy, charming flower boys who get away with murder, sometimes we just long for a man who can own his wrongdoings and humbly apologize for them. Y’know, an actual adult who can learn from his mistakes and sincerely change his ways. These unicorns do exist in Dramaland! You just have to know where to look for them. Here’s our pick of the ones who make us swoon when they say that magic word: “sorry.” Warning: spoilers ahead! 1. Ryan Gold – “Her Private Life” Oh, Lion. Not only do you have great taste in suits and practically perfect cheekbones, but you are also the epitome of #boyfriendgoals. We can understand why Ryan (Kim Jae Wook) got upset when Duk Mi (Park Min Young) poked around his apartment uninvited. She didn’t mean any harm, but she unwittingly got close to the core of his deepest issues, which would freak anybody out. But after Ryan blows up, it takes about three seconds for him to realize he was wrong. He knows immediately that he was taking it out on Duk Mi when she didn’t deserve it. Some male leads might mumble an apology when they’re both back at the office, but not Ryan. He starts running like a crazy person and doesn’t stop until he finds Duk Mi and makes it right. The (almost) kiss that follows is the icing on the cake. nuestsaron
  6. They cut away! they actually just kissed and then woke up. That is not how babies are made They owe us a lovemaking scene. I hope the next episode fills in what they took out. The writer of this show really do understand what it’s like to admired an artist in an exciting, slightly time consuming, healthy way.
  7. ======== They have this magnetic energy between them that tells us immediately that there is something special happening right in front of us.
  8. The chemistry between Park Min Young and Kim Jae Wook is Surreal/Unreal. It feels like the director gave them a rough script and told them to improvise the rest. Everything runs so smoothly, as if we’re watching a real couple interact. ====== When did your heart flutter?
  9. One of the inspiring features which make we (viewers) not stop watching HPL is the positive energy, pure outlooks for both leads. Deokmi and Ryan Gold support and understand each other.I can feel their sincerity.Such endearing scenes DC
  10. ===== #ZhaoLiying's Sheng Minglan and #FengShaofeng's Gu Tingye have joined the wax figure collection at Madame Tussauds Shanghai!
  11. Part translation of ParkBoGum's interview on the drama, "Boyfriend" & his character, KimJinHyuk ======= https://twitter.com/heymilkbrownie/status/1089933301509308418
  12. tvN really never disappoints! Encounter deserve a lot. Its theme suits everyone who enjoys melodrama's. The matured vibe? It's perfect. You can conclude that everything was planned very well and was thought of precisely at the very beginning. Thank you. For being brave. ======
  13. I think ting ye is a well written character. He's not perfect but that's what makes him likable & interesting because there's more room for him to develop. I love his relationship with the people around him. I like that he's also responsible, sensible. the only good man in this drama
  14. There's something about ming lan and ting ye when they are together. There's this fire that's ready to ignite. I like that Ting Ye is a very experienced man who's well-versed with the outside world & he adapts to all sorts of situation, just like ming lan. They both complement each other.
