photo933070.jpg

 

On the latest episode of the OCN drama "Bad Guys : Vile City", Je-moon (Park Joong-hoon), who was investigating Jin-pyung's (Kim Moo-yeol) murder case, found some suspicious things about Park Gye-jang (Han Jae-young) .

It turned out that Choi Tae-joon (Yoo Byung-sun) was the owner of the phone number that was found in No Jin-pyung's wallet, the man who delivered drugs via a teen named Kim Yoon-kyung (Jeong Ha-dam), the man who stabbed detective Pil-soon (Ok Jae-yeon) to death, and the man who tried to kill Min Tae-sik (Lee Yoon-hee). However, Tae-joon was already dead.

Il-hoo (Joo Jin-mo) was looking for Kim Yoon-kyung when he discovered that there was a mole in Special Unit 3 and told Je-moon what he found.

He also told Je-moon that Joon-hyuk (Kim Yu-seok) was questionable. Je-moon thought Park Gye-jang was Jin-pyung's killer and stole files from the computer. The files told him Park Gye-jang had been in a secret co-investigation with Jin-pyung's former deputy Park Chang-joon (Kim Jung-hak).

Meanwhile, "Bad Guys : Vile City" is on OCN every Saturday and Sunday at 22:00 KST.

*** I feel bad for the actors and production teams. I feel sorry for JJM! :(

 

*************************************************************

 

Jin Se Yeon, Kim Sang Kyung, Uhm Ki Joon, And Joo Jin Mo Also Not Have Been Paid For Their Dramas

 

Jin-Se-Yeon-Kim-Sang-Kyung-Uhm-Ki-Joon-J

 

More actors have been revealed to not have received pay for their work.

 

Jin Se Yeon has yet to receive pay for her role in the 2014 KBS2 drama “Inspiring Generation,” which totals 140 million won (approximately $131,600).

 

Jin Se Yeon’s agency, Early Bird Entertainment, confirmed on January 17, “It has been 4 years since Jin Se Yeon hasn’t received pay for ‘Inspiring Generation.’ We have sent documents of proof, and have taken all measures we can as an agency. We don’t understand why the production side hasn’t given payment. It’s very frustrating.”

 

It has been revealed that most of the actors who appeared on “Inspiring Generation” are still unpaid for their roles in the drama, with the exception of the male lead Kim Hyun Joong.

 

Although the Korean Broadcasting Actors Union and the Korea Entertainment Management Association have gotten involved, there has been little progress on the issue.

 

Additionally, actors Kim Sang Kyung, Uhm Ki Joon, and Joo Jin Mo have also not received payment for their work.

 

A source from the Korea Entertainment Management Association shared on January 17, “We are aware Kim Sang Kyung is owed more than 100 million won (approximately $94,000) for his role on KBS2 drama ‘Secret Agent Miss Oh.’ Uhm Ki Joon has yet to receive 25 million won (approximately $23,500) for MBC’s ‘Hate to Lose,’ while Joo Jin Mo has not received 70 million won (approximately $65,800) for SBS’s ‘Queen of the Game.'”

 

Sources from both Kim Sang Kyung and Uhm Ki Joon’s agencies confirmed that the actors have not received their appearance fees for the dramas.

 

The four actors join a growing list of actors who are speaking out about not receiving payment for their work, which includes Kim Min Jung, Sung Yuri, Rain, Lee Na Young, Gong Seung Yeon, Jung Yoo Mi, Kim Woo Bin, and Ku Hye Sun.

Korean TV programs showcased in Miami

 

SEOUL, Jan. 18 (Yonhap) -- South Korean TV networks showcased their programs during this year's NATPE Miami trade fair, the government agency that organized the event said Thursday.

 

Considered one of the three largest broadcasting content trade fairs along with France's MIPTV and MIPCOM, NAPTE Miami is the largest fair of its kind in the Americas. The Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) has been participating in the annual fair since 2014, running a Korean pavilion and screening Korean TV programs.

 

This year, officials from major Korean TV networks such as KBS, MBC, SBS, CJ E&M and JTBC showed a total of 15 programs, mostly dramas, in the "K-content screening" side event at NAPTE Miami on Wednesday.

 

Among the 15 programs were OCN's "Bad Guys: City of Evil," JTBC's "Woman of Dignity," KBS's "Angel's Revenge," MBC's "Money Flower" and "Good Doctor" and SBS's "God's Gift."

   Some 100 officials for major broadcasting networks and content creators from across the Americas took part in the "K-content screening" and showed much interest in Korean TV programs, according to the KOCCA.

 

"It was a chance to enhance the brand value of Korean content in the North and Latin American markets, which have high entry barriers," Kim Rak-gyun, a KOCCA official in charge of supporting Korean content's advances into global markets, said in a press release. "We'll continue to provide aggressive support so Korean content can reach wider into the world."

   The three-day fair ends Thursday.

"Bad Guys : Vile City" Joo Jin-mo Is Riveting on Screen

 

photo940681.jpg

 

Joo Jin-mo kept final episode of the OCN drama "Bad Guys : Vile City" tense.

 

Jin-mo as Heo Il-hoo struggled to put an end to Jo Young-gook (Kim Hong-pa). He recklessly threw himself at the Dongbang Gang and fought them. In addition, he worried about Jang Sung-chuk's (Yang Ik-june) health and hurried to visit him when he heard something was wrong.

 

Il-hoo puts his life on the line for what he believe is right. Despite any extreme circumstances, he does what he must and overcomes any obstacles.

 

In the beginning, he was just a restaurant owner, but he had a unique aura. As the story went on, his scarred life revealed itself and he revealed layer after layer of emotion.

The Best Historical K-Dramas To Watch From Each Time Period

 

There are plenty of reasons to love Korean historical dramas: sageuks are the perfect mix of royal romances, palace conspiracies, and aesthetic AF robes and scenery. And whether you consider yourself a history geek or not, historical K-dramas are also a great way to gain a little insight into Korea’s fascinating past. Maybe you want to know all about the political conflict surrounding the founding of the Joseon Dynasty, or maybe you just love to watch decorated court ladies and Goryeo princes parade across your screen. Either way, we’ve put together a master list of the best historical K-dramas from each time period. Come take a trip through Korea’s rich history, and see which eras you may want to stop at along the way!

 

Three Kingdoms of Korea

First up, the Three Kingdoms period refers to the time from 57 BC to 668 AD, when the Korean Peninsula was divided among the ancient kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla. Each state developed its own unique cultural identity, while testing their borders and alliances with each other.

 

 

“Empress Ki”

 

Empress-Ki-e1535216989827.jpg

 

Goryeo was required to send tribute to the Mongol Empire, which included shipping young women off to the Yuan Dynasty in China.

 

Against all odds, one of these women rose from her low class position to become the powerful empress of the Yuan Dynasty. A story of one woman’s ambitions and loves, “Empress Ki” is a unique look at an aspect of Goryeo’s history that reached outside of the kingdom’s borders.

*** SBS has confirmed Joo Jin Mo will star opposite Han Ye Seul in the drama, "Big Issue" -  I’m excited about this pairing… I miss JJM in the small screen. I'm curious to see what kind of chemistry these two can bring to the table. He will play a photographer and will expose celebrity scandals. I read that the writer is the one behind Yong Pal and The K2.  "Big Issue" is scheduled to air in February. Looking forward to this upcoming drama. :lol:

I am a returning fan of Joo Jin Mo.. I don;t know why i forgot about him or stopped watching Korean movies and dramas for many years.. i only just remembered him from watching Empress Ki! I am only at episode12 but i am so rooting for him! 

 

I am now looking for other movies he starred in years back, but i am not able to find them. Or i can't get access to them. I saw that Happy End is available for streaming on Amazon Prime but because i am not based in the US, I am not able to purchase streaming for that.

 

Could anyone here advise how i can download (happy to pay) or buy a hard copy of the following movies? 
- Happy End - 1999 

- Gabi - 2012

 

Thanks so much! 

 

Regards,

Mavis

The two have reportedly grown close to each other as they share the same hobbies such as fishing.

Joo debuted in 1999 in the film "Dance Dance." Since then, he has appeared in many movies and TV shows, including "200 Pounds Beauty," "Frozen Flower," and "Bad Guys: City of Evil."

His next role is in the TV show "Big issue," a follow-up to "The Last Empress."

Joo Jin Mo, Han Ye Seul, And More Show Passion At Script Reading Of “Big Issue”

 

3f7f97249e2e4152a2679bb584d423ea.jpeg?s=

 

SBS’s upcoming drama “Big Issue” has shared some photos from their script reading!

 

The reading took place on December 17, 2018 with the full cast including Joo Jin Mo, Han Ye Seul, Shin So Yul, Choi Song Hyun, Song Kyung Chul, and Oh Kwang Rok, as well as director Lee Dong Hoon and writer Jang Hyuk Rin.

 

“Big Issue” will tell the story about a man who turns his life around from being an alcoholic homeless person to an elite photo journalist to find the cure for his sick daughter, and a heartless chief editor who uses her connections to reveal all sorts of celebrity scandals.

 

Joo Jin Mo was previously confirmed to take on the role of the photo journalist Han Seok Jo, and Han Ye Seul will play Ji Soo Hyun, the cold-hearted editor-in-chief at Sunday Report.

 

Joo-Jin-Mo-Han-Ye-Seul-Choi-Song-Hyun-Sh

 

At the script reading, Joo Jin Mo was able to portray the extreme life-or-death situation his character goes through with his perfectly-controlled facial expressions. On the other hand, Han Ye Seul exuded much charisma as a chic, professional career woman and left people at the script reading in awe.

 

Joining the main actors is Shin So Yul. As the actress is returning to SBS for the first time in a year, she showed her determination and readiness to fully transform into her character as a journalist at Han Ye Seul’s news company, Sunday Report.

 

Choi Song Hyun, who will be making her first drama return in three years, will take on the role of Bae Min Jung. She is the wife of Han Seok Joo (Joo Jin Mo) who ruthlessly asks for a divorce once her husband faces a crisis due to an unfortunate incident.

 

On the other hand, Song Kyung Chul will act as Doo Chul, the leader of the neighborhood alley in Seoul Station. Last but not least, Oh Kwang Rok will appear as a homeless man who calls himself a doctor.

 

The production team said, “‘Big Issue’ plans to showcase the exciting work of paparazzi that will remind [viewers] of spies at war.

 

Please look forward to seeing a new and exciting genre that conveys the style of caper films.”

 

Check out a video of their script reading below!

 

 

 

 

“Big Issue” will premiere on March 6, and it will also be available on Viki!

*** Oh..............I stand corrected - This drama  premiered on March 6, which was last night.  The pilot recorded viewership ratings of 4.1 and 4.8 percent. These are quite low figures but, I hope it will still increase as the EP progresses & will get a double-digit figure for its ratings later on. :o
