its quite widely known that LJG is beyond nice and approachable to his fans. but i would also like to point out that his fandom is exceptional in a lot of ways, which explains why he is always so nice

Something to brighten up the mood  Got this nice Japanese magazine with Joon Gi on the cover as well as the Japanese DVD for MLSHR, both with long and interesting interviews of the MLSHR cast.

OMG! The 4th prince has his own thread! I discovered it by accident! I love him since friday, the day i started watching SHR. It started with this scene: then it intensified by infinity beca

*** Seeing these new pictures of LJK I just missed him MORE on the small screen now. It's been a while since "Flower of Evil". The drama was an epic.  I feel that he's due for a rom-com drama this time. I'm glad that he renewed his contract with his long time agency. Namoo Actors has been doing a good job with his project choices. So, it's not a surprised for me that he renewed it with them. I heard that he signed for another 7-year-term. :wow2:

He is growing his hair - is that a sign for what is to come?
 

Patiently waiting because I want him to take his time to pick his next project.

7 Of The *Best* K-Dramas To Recommend To Your Friends Who Aren't Fans Yet

They'll be binge-watching until 2 a.m. in no time!
 

We all have that one friend who we can’t seem to get into watching K-dramas, no matter how hard we try to convince them. Okay, I’ll admit it: I was one of *those* people, but I can vividly remember a summer in college when my best friend successfully pursuaded me to finally watch my first K-drama. I binge-watched Descendants of the Sun in two days! Since then, I’ve watched my fair share of Korean dramas and have picked out the ones that will encourage ~*non-believers*~ to give them a chance.

Here are seven K-dramas on Netflix and Viu that will transform your friends into diehard fans:

 

 

2. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (2016)

Who’s in it: IU, Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul, Nam Joo Hyuk, Ji Soo, Kang Han Na, EXO's Baekhyun

Where you can watch itViu

Why you should watch it: This series is perfect for fans of period dramas. It tells the story of a woman from the present (IU) who wakes up in the Goryeo Dynasty. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo is guaranteed to give you the kilig (soooo many cute boys!) with a hint of Korean history.

7 Crime & Mystery K-Dramas That Keep Us On The Edge Of Our Seats

 

8bb18a080d074d0fa71ea85f6c47eab8.jpeg?s=

 

Crime and mystery K-dramas are often underrated in favor of their romantic counterparts. While there’s nothing more satisfying to watch than an epic romance unfold, sometimes you want to put the fluttering feelings of love to the side and watch something more thrilling. From murder mysteries to conspiracies, to delving into the paranormal, there are so many good, thrilling crime and mystery dramas to watch. Here are a few favorites.

 

Warning: mentions of violence, sexual assault, and death below.

 

 

Flower of Evil

When it comes to crime and romance, usually the two don’t mix. Or, more commonly, there are just subtle hints since romance isn’t the main plotline of the show. However, tvN’s “Flower of Evil” takes the plunge of intricately tying a marriage into a cold case that’s over a decade old. The story follows detective Cha Ji Won (Moon Chae Won) who discovers that her husband, Baek Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) may actually be a murderer. It feels like an understatement to say that these two go through hell as they both try to solve the case and reveal the true events that happened.

Spoiler

The romance absolutely drives this drama forward. With every episode, you truly have no idea if their marriage will fall apart or become stronger than ever. The drama toys with Hee Sung’s innocence quite a bit in the beginning, but by the end, you can’t help but hope for their happy ending.

 

Each character is deeply connected, and those connections plus the drama’s insane attention to detail make the murder mystery so addicting to figure out. Once you start this drama, you’ll have to keep watching until you finish.

 

Catch the first episode below:

@Tuiwgn, I share your happiness. I am so happy for him. I am proud to be a fan of such a good actor. He brought so much quality into every scene in this drama. I'm sure you agree with me. It's exactly one of his best dramas. It's just so sad that Moon chae won is not nominated. She deserved a nomination. Best Actor category is very competitive. Congratulations for all nominees - especially to Kim Soo Hyun, too! To both of you - Fighting! :heart1:

8 K-Drama Remakes Of Your Favorite International TV Series

You have probably watched the OG series!
 

Korean dramas are arguably one of the most popular genres for television shows. But did you know that some of your favorite titles are actually spin-offs of foreign series? Yup, you read that right!

We rounded up eight popular K-dramas that are remakes from international titles:

 

 

2. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (2016)

Who’s in it: IU, Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul, Nam Joo Hyuk, Ji Soo, Kang Han Na, EXO's Baekhyun

 

Where you can watch it: Viu

We still miss you, Prince Wang So! This 2016 hit drama is based on the Chinese novel Bu Bu Jing Xin which translates to Starling By Each Step. Before Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo was released, China released their own version of the drama titled Scarlet Heart in 2011.

 

 

 

5. Criminal Minds (2017)

Who’s in it: Lee Joon Gi, Son Hyun Joo, Moon Chae Won, Yoo Sun

Where you can watch it: Viu

Everyone, including their eommas (moms), has most likely seen an episode of the American TV show, Criminal Minds. But did you know that South Korea has its own version that aired in 2017? Unlike its American counterpart, South Korea’s Criminal Minds only lasted for one season, whereas the original had a whopping 15!

Lee Joon Gi  DREAM 2

Naver NOW, live broadcast April 17, 8pm (Korean time)

Let's crash the server again for his birthday !!!

 

@Tuiwgn, thanks for sharing this. Since this was in celebration of his birthday, IU made a surprise phone call and they   talked about their friendship and “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo,” the drama through which they were first introduced to each other. “ Lee Joon Gi brought up a question he often received from fans, which was whether there would be a season two of the drama. He commented that it was realistically difficult to make it happen, but he asked IU if she would be interested in appearing in the drama if a second season were to be produced. IU answered, “Isn’t that amazing? If the conditions are right for us to all gather together, there is no reason not to do it."  Ohhh.................I missed the drama. It's been over four years??? Am I right? Well, I don't need season 2, but, I am curious for those deleted scenes, though. I remembered so many signed up for a petition way back then just to have "Scarlet Heart season 2!" Since this is a remake of a Chinese drama,  the Chinese drama has a season 2. :coolshades:

 

 

Belated Happy Birthday Oppa! :popcornjackson:
