[Drama 2001] Beautiful Days 아름다운 날들

Recommended Posts

This has to be one of my all time favorites, if not THE favorite. The music, the story, the chemistry, yes, definitely the chemistry. LBH is a force to be reckoned with. And he is my all time favorite also. Beautiful Day was the second K-drama that I watched and it's set the standard for the rest. I can only say one word: addictive.

Hi kht2015, welcome to Beautiful Days! Very happy to see you here.. BD is truly the best of all and BH is indeed the Storm! :lol: Come join us at LBH thread, too.. we'd love to see you there. :D

A true romance, a classic chemistry.. so addictive to the last drop.. and pulls you in for more! :lol:

Everything I Learned About Life I Learned From Korean TV Dramas...

Okay, this is hardly new, but it amused me greatly when someone reminded me of it recently. It is the top 50 things I learned from watching Korean TV dramas.

50 things you can learn from a korean drama

1) Hot, rich, younger men love fat, older vulgar women.

2) If you have a best guy friend, he is in love with you. And secretly you are too.

3) You and your boyfriend will always playfully chase each other on an ice rink, at the beach, or in the leaves. And you'll laugh for no reason and your boyfriend will hit you "playfully" but the force of his push will have you flying across the room. But it's okay. Cuz you're still laughing like a crazy person.

4) Brothers/cousin/uncles-newphews will always love the same girl.

5) You're allowed to make uturns wherever you want in Korea. And there is never traffic on the side you want to u turn to.

6) There is a super quick payment device that allows you to pay a bill quickly enough for a guy to run immediately out of a restaurant after his angry girlfriend storms out.

7) Everyone has cancer.

8) If you're sick, all you need is an IV to make you feel lots better.

9) There is vomit and urine all over Seoul at nights.

10) Fighting at a pojangmacha with a random stranger is merely part of a normal night's event.

11) Soju must cost 10 cents. Everyone drinks it everyday all the time, especially the poor people.

12) If you're rich, you're a jerk.

13) If you're poor, you're an angel.

14) Women sleep and wake up with a full set of makeup on.

15) You're not studying hard enough unless you get a nosebleed.

16) If you have a nosebleed, you most definitely have cancer. And you have no money to pay for the surgery that will save your life. And your liver is missing. We're not sure where it went, but it's making your cancer progress faster.

17) If you work in a sool jeep, you have massively curly hair and wear flashy colors from the early 90's.

18) You always order orange juice or coffee at a cafe. And you never drink it. EVER.

19) You will always call your boyfriend by his job title. Or simply sunbaenim. Never his name. Never. He doesn't have one.

20) If you TRULY love each other, you must die together in the end. Frozen outside instead of finding shelter like sane people. Just frozen....

21) You go to America you come back miraculously successful. You go to England you come back amazingly fashionable. You stay in Korea the only thing that changes is your hairstyle.

22) And if you come back with no apparent reason then it's because you have cancer.

23) Everyone always goes to the same hospital no matter where they are.

24) If you stand out in the rain for more than five minutes, you'll end up with a fever and vertigo and people will rush you to the hospital to get some magic IV. And instead of taking an ambulance or driving they'll race you on their back.

25) Even if you're poor and can't eat, you never wear the same clothes twice.

26) If you play a poor kid, you always have dirt on your face and your hair is always messy.

27) If you're saving someone from being hit from a car, you'll push them out of the way and wait for the car to hit you instead.

28) Everyone has a long lost sister/brother/twin. Usually one they didn't know about.

29) If you don't want to answer your phone, you can't just turn it off. The battery

needs to be taken out.

30) All korean men can drink hard, smoke long, sing well and play piano. Usually all at the same time. And at the same restaurant that has a piano that they let anyone use.

31) If you're in a relationship, you must at one point leave and have your lover tearfully come RIGHT before you board the plane (vice versa applies as well. You can be the chaser). 60% of the time you see each other, the other 40% you're roaming around in circles and pass each other about six times, but miraculously never see them.

32) If you're getting off a plane, you're ALWAYS wearing sunglasses. ALWAYS.

33) All guys wear hideous tracksuits zipped up to their neck. Even if all they're doing is jumping rope.

34) Girls will always storm off because they're mad and the guy will stoically grab them by the arm and swing them back- and by magic, not dislocate their shoulders.

35) Guys always look like they're 6 feet tall, even if they're only 5'10. Thank you camera angles.

36) Guys like to wear foundation, eyeliner and sometimes a smudge of lipliner.

37) You always get stuck in an elevator with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Even if there are six different elevators, you'll always be stuck in the same one with that bastard you hate (or just fought with).

38) Unless you're fabulously rich, your in-laws will always hate you.

39) So will your sister-in-law.

40) Your brother-in-law might be pining away for you.

41) There are only 2 ways to kiss. You either press your lips against theirs with your mouth completely shut, and just press away for a very long and uncomfortable time. OR you devour the other person and suck out their soul. In both instances, the world spins.

42) A guy will always get the right size ring, even if you're never held hands.

43) People stare off into space and ponder a lot. They'll just stop in the middle of the road and watch a leaf on a tree for a good three minutes, and just ponder.

44) You'll get pregnant the first time you have sex.

45) You'll get pregnant if he kisses you on the forehead.

46) Hell- you'll get pregnant if you hold hands.

47) If you overcome great obstacles to be together, one of you must die. Probably due to cancer.

48) One Korean man can kick the butts of 6 gangstas. Especially when they all stand in a circle and attack the guy one by one. Then when each of them get their butts OWNED, they wise up and attack the guy at the same time. Then the guy will get pulverized and bleed out onto the dusty concrete floor of the empty warehouse they've found to fight in. There will be a fire in a trashcan somewhere. And the girl will have watched this the entire time, screaming in horror. Instead of calling 119, she'll just watch and cry. But it's okay. Cuz the next day the guy will be fine with a few random bandages and a few face scars. But never a black eye.

49) It ain't a real fight unless the gangstas fight dirty with a stick or switchblade.

50) If you study in the states (perferably Harvard), you are one of the top students and can speak perfect English (as assumed by the reactions of those around you). Why the rest of the world OUTSIDE of the TV can't understand a single word uttered out of your melodramatic mouth is beyond me.

Ryu, Epik High to Perform in Japan

By Min Hee-young

Korea Times Intern

080820_p18_ryu.jpg

Singer-actor Ryu Si-won and hip-hop group Epik High will visit the Japanese market through separate performances.

Ryu, 36, will hold a solo concert at the Tokyo Dome on Christmas Eve.

"The Tokyo Dome is a difficult place for even Japanese artists to perform. Considering the size, budget and the season, Ryu's concert holds great meaning," Ryu's agency R's Company announced Tuesday.

Ryu is the second Korean singer to perform solo at the Tokyo Dome, following Rain last year.

The singer in June began an 18-city tour of South Korea Japan (thanks to Rhapsody for the correction). Performing in 30 concerts over the past two months, he will finish his long journey at Tokyo's Budokan with a three-day concert ending Friday. The first hallyu star to perform for three consecutive days in the city, Ryu will also release his eighth album in Japan in October and hold a birthday party and fan meeting in Seoul Oct. 5.

Korean hip-hop group Epik High will also perform at the Yokohama BLITZ!, Saturday and Sunday.

Comprised of Tablo, Mithra Jin and DJ Tukutz, the group will hold a joint show with Korean balladeer Tei, who has steadily garnered a Japanese fan base.

This weekend's performance will mark the group's first formal encounter with their Japanese fans.

Epik High was voted the ''most desired group to see in a live performance" on the Japanese Web Site "Mixi," according to the group's manager Woolim Entertainment.

"We hope this upcoming performance will start a continuous relationship between Epik High and its Japanese fans," Woolim said.

The group performed in Thailand early this month to an overwhelmingly positive reception.

Many may not realize that Beautiful Days was also directed by the same PD for Stairs to Heaven. Looking at PD Lee's filmography, LBH have quite a number of times acted in the former's list of impressive work.

Kwon Sang Woo to Star in Epic War Drama 'No.1 Road'

IMAGE

Popular Actor Kwon Sang Woo, who drew much attention recently over his marriage with Son Tae Young, is slated to play the leading role in the upcoming war drama “No.1 Road’.

The production company for the drama, which also produced “Stairway to Heaven” and “Last Scandal”, confirms the participation of Kwon Sang Woo in “No.1 Road”. This 13 billion won mega-production currently stands at 10 episodes.

The timeline for “No. 1 Road” is set during the Korean War and is based on the events occurring around “Route 1”, which lies between Seoul and Pyongyang. Kwon Sang Woo plays as the officer Lee Jang Woo, who displays extraordinary survival skills, friendship, cooperation and ideology under brutal war conditions.

The drama will take a documentary approach to re-enact the epic battles of the Army’s 1st Division, hence bringing a sense of realism to the viewers. It is seen by many as the television version of the 2004 movie “Taegukgi”, where the majority of its crews will also be working on “No.1 Road” to provide the expertise and technology needed to produce a high quality war drama.

Kwon Sang Woo, who rose to stardom with his drama “Stairway to Heaven”, will be collaborating with PD Lee Jang Soo again after 5 years. There have been several discussions on distribution rights and investment schemes with major Hollywood production companies.

“No.1 Road” is scheduled to begin shooting in January next year and will premiere in September 2009.

Now everyone hold your excitement first, in case you are getting too excited. Wait for the official announcement from Kwon Sang Woo before celebrating. And also pray that it doesn’t get caned like Daemool.

There's one that you missed:

51. When the leading man is dumped, the wife is cheated or a depressing family well-kept secret is revealed, he or she goes to the Han River & shout at the top of his/her lungs.

Hahaa! That's a good one, sis-Armin! :lol: It happens in BD, too.. also in All In! :blush: 50 is just not definite, obviously. I'm sure there are more to pick from Korean drama series. ^^

Btw.. I love your cute avatar. :wub: Now.. everything looks much better and more interesting, isn't it. :rolleyes:

Yes, we can come up with a lot more especially the K-drama veterans who have made watching K drama series a part of their routine ... hehehe like you & me. :D

There's one BD issue that I want cleared ... its about the original script that was revised to suit the clamor of the viewers. It must have been a major change in the script. There were talks that Yeonseo was supposed to end up with Seonjae but out of the viewers appeal/request the writer had to modify the story line. The shift must have been done during the early episodes of the drama otherwise it would not have proceeded the way it did. I remember Yeonseo accepted Minchul in the 7th episode, the beach scene & also here she admitted to Seonjae her love for his brother. The Yeonseo-Minchul couple must have earned viewers support from the start leading to the call for them to be together up to the end of the drama.

rubie, I tried my hand on attaching images for my siggy but did not succeed. There must be specifics on size, etc. I got a CJW pic online but the board denied it because of questions on the url.

About the image(s) for the siggy, the soompi forum is quite strict with the rules as stated below. I was writing about this at BH thread since we're managed to achieve the first step putting up the blinkie earlier on...

If anything at all that you need help with, just let me know.. and we'll go step-by-step like before.. :)

Q: HOW MANY BANNERS ARE WE ALLOWED TO HAVE IN OUR SIGNATURE?

http://www.soompi.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1317

sig_rules.gif

Avatar:

- File size cannot be more than 40KB (40,960 bytes)

Signatures:

- Maximum of 4 lines of text.

- Maximum of 2 banners/images that can be on the same line as long as they fit the size requirements

(you cannot substitute an image for a line, vice versa)

This means you can have a maximum of 6 lines. (4 text + 2 images)

Empty line still counts as a line

Each line must be short enough that it doesn't wrap. The maximum number of characters per line varies depending on the font size you use. The limits are listed below and remember that spaces count~!

size=1 : 140

size=2 : 125

size=3 : 110

Mixed : 125

Font size for lines cannot exceed size=3 (size=2 is the default)

Maximum width for each banner/image = 400 pixels

Maximum height for each banner/image = 175 pixels

Maximum file size for each banner/image = 40KB (40,960 bytes)
