That squirting dumpling is called Xiao Long Bao which has chicken or pork broth inside thus challenging to eat. I love it! Some people say it’s meant to be eaten whole but it’s so darn hot! I believe it’s Shanghai in origin (am I right @gtLmh0622 ) and considered a special dish not all Chinese dimsum places can offer. You ought to try it! 

 

Yes, you're great !

Talking about Xiaolongbao, the most famous restaurant is Din Tai Fung. There are lots of branches in different countries, you may try it ! :P

I liked the saguek part where LMH is a town head. He looks distinguished and scholarly. The love story part is sweet. However, I think the first episode of LOTBS is still trying to find its feet. The funny scenes were not that funny to me and it seemed contrived. Both JJH and LMH comedic scenes were not effective. The con man part with the lighter and stuff was overblown. My favorite con man parts were when LMH pretended to be a dufus and you see his face change when he left the room. That was my favorite scene and con. Where he pretended to be a prosecutor was my second favorite. 

 

The show improves though, the last quarter was better and the way you see LMH start feeling a bit guilty taking advantage of this innocent soul and he went back with an umbrella, that was a good end to episode one. I did not think JJH stood out at all in episode one. The lollipop scene was funny though at the very end.

I just watched a Youtube video on how to eat a soup dumpling.  One thing they said  not to do, is to eat in two bites or the soup will go everywhere ala LMH:lol:.  I went  to a dumpling restaurant with a friend from Taiwan, so I watched and copied how she ate it otherwise, I probably would have tried to eat it in two bites.  

 

Thanks @CallieP for your LBS comments and the recommendation to watch episode 21.  I totally forgot about the directors cut. 

Spoiler

When I originally watched LBS episode 1, I said that I loved it.   I think that I was so excited to finally be able to watch a LMH drama and comment with everyone else, that I didn't think much about the content.   Now having the benefit of watching the entire drama, as far as LMH is concerned, the saguek section was the best in episode 1.  I was a little concerned how LMH would look in saguek, but I think he looked regal.  I hope he looks the same in The King.  I know LMH worked hard on the lighter trick, but I think it was a good decision (assuming it was a mindful decision) to eventually eliminate the lighter.  I thought the beginning with SC in HJJ's hotel room was pretty funny.  She had great expressions.  A lot on DB commented that LMH's English was improved from Heirs.  I agree.  I hope during MS he continued to work on his English.

This is my third time (and a half - I once watched the drama but only the sageuk parts)  watching LBS. It's in this drama that I became a LMH fan. I was recruited into the LMH fandom by Dam Ryeong. :D

 

I've known LMH since BOF days (my sister says she recommended BOF to me then, but I don't really remember) but I never actually watched any of his dramas. She again recommended a LMH drama, LBS, when it was airing then, and I'm so glad I finally listened to her.

 

Like @CallieP and @CarolynH, I also like the sageuk parts; as I've mentioned, I once watched LBS with only the sageuk parts.

Dam Ryeong at the banquet - it's at this point that I was entranced by LMH's divine looks. I wondered what the heck was I doing all this time. :lol:

I like the first meeting of Dam Ryeong and the mermaid. There were no words exchanged between them, but the look in their eyes is intriguing enough to draw me into their story.
 

HO1VBRe.gif

 

5D9c748.gif

 

The moment Dam Ryeong released the mermaid into the sea, I was hooked into his character. His kindness towards a being whom he only met for the first time, despite the possible gain he might get on keeping her, is quite admirable. And the mermaid swimming back and reaching out her hand to him, as a sign of gratitude perhaps (in contrast to the myth of mermaids stealing the soul and erasing the memory of those they touch), hints for an interesting story to unfold.

Heo Joon Jae as con man. What I like about this part is that he gets to play various characters - a lawyer, a dufus, an elevator technician, a prosecutor, etc. It's interesting to watch him play such an array of characters in one drama. With different looks to match those characters.

I've seen JJH's early works, and it's a treat for me to see her and LMH both on the same screen. The hotel scene was rather amusing.
 

SGfl0DM.gif

 

1cMiAQw.gif

 

When Heo Joon Jae saw the mermaid being handcuffed and then saw her scraped-up feet, he kind of felt bad. But what pushed him to actually go after her is the valuable jade bracelet she's been wearing. After all, he IS a con man.
 

So before he snatches the bracelet from her, he at least buys her a dress and a pair of shoes so she'll not walk around barefoot. 
 

limCSwQ.gif

 

61v5ykB.gif

 

And then feeds her, as he remembers that she likes to eat. 
 

OX07m5Y.gif

 

Then con man Joon Jae goes back to business and snatches the bracelet. 
 

But looks like he's guilt-ridden, with the cherry and traffic light reminding him of the mermaid. A con man with a hint of conscience - it's interesting enough for me to watch.
 

temWCbb.gif

 

And was I relieved to see him go back for her. The similar sight of him reaching out for the mermaid, as Dam Ryeong did years ago, hints for a drama which intertwines stories from two distant eras. How the stories are told without confusing the audience, and how the connection of these two eras are laid out, are things to look forward to in this drama.

LOTBS Ep. 1 (21). This is one of my favorite episodes in this series, and I appreciated the reminder about the Director's cut.

- I have an aversion to men's costumes during the Josean era, as the hats look silly and the hair style too severe to me. But he wore it with his usual grace and good looks. Liked the feather in his hat. And the expression in his eyes when he first sees her is worth a paragraph of dialog.

- The modern day portion was terrific and I liked his costar's antics; she was hilarious. I laughed out loud several times, particularly when she tried to jump through the window of his hotel room and when she was pulling tissues out of the box with such joy. He looked terrific in his white suit on the island, and how romantic was that walk up the escalator with her in his arms?!

- I agree, the lighter is a little over the top, but this is a fantasy. Not much different than picking her correct shoe size right off the shelf. I can suspend disbelief pretty easily. 

- One small criticism. To me, he wears very intense lip color in some parts of this series. Wish he'd tone it down a bit in next series. He doesn't need it to look absolutely stunning.

- His acting continues to improve with every show he does; he's just excellent in this series. He seems so at ease and genuine in these two roles. It's quite a change from the heavy dramatic role he played in Gangnam Blues, so perhaps he's having fun here, as well as being so much fun to watch!

I watched LOTBS the same week I watched GB and I was blown away by how good an actor LMH is in which ever role he plays. I watched the first episode on an iPhone in a hospital waiting room when the doctor was 2 hours late turning up and I couldn’t help laughing out loud at some of the scenes- especially the scene at the traffic light.I got some very strange looks! One of the things that surprised me about LOTBS was how close the camera went in to his face- and no matter how close or from what angle he always looked so handsome.

15 K-Drama Bromances That Are Cuter Than The Lead Couple

Forget romance, we’re in this for the bromance.

 

Korean dramas tend to focus on one main couple, most often male and female, that face hardships along the way to realizing their ultimate happiness with one another. One major plot device is the rival love interest, creating a love triangle or even a rectangle. It’s made even more tense when these “rivals” are long-time friends, cousins or even siblings.

In some dramas, the way these frenemies interact is even more hilarious and moving than the lead couple, and there have been several epic bromances in recent dramas where the chemistry between the male rivals is fun, engaging and pulls on the heart strings!

Kim Tan and Choi Young Do, Heirs

hdNMopV.gif

These two used to be best friends and turned bitter enemies due to a past misunderstanding. When Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) returns to Korea after being exiled to the US, Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin) begins picking on the girl Kim Tan loves, Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye), just to irritate Kim Tan. Tension ensues when Young Do also falls in love with Eun Sang, and the two begin competing for her in the most adorable ways.

Maybe the rewatch will be different because Minho has completed MS.  When I initially watched LBS, it was somewhat with a heavy heart knowing that he would start MS soon after the end of the drama.  Episode 13, will be hard to watch,regardless, even though one of the scenes ranks high on my list of favorite scenes.  Episode 20 was very difficult to watch even though the ending was a happy one.  I felt sad watching the final scene, then the photo of the crew made me feel even more so.  Of course, we didn't know at that time that we would see LMH virtually every day:D.  This time, I think I'll feel differently watching the final scenes.

 

I saw the LG styler at my local H-Mart today.  It made me think of LMH.  Well, heck, anytime I see anything Korean, I think of him.  

Remember this commercial?

Hallyu star Lee Min-ho as a goodwill ambassador for the Sejong Institute.

 

0004384076_001_20190702094005570.jpg?typ

 

Actor Lee Min-ho, 32, will promote the Sejong Institute, which teaches Hangeul in foreign countries. 

 

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said Tuesday that it will appoint actor Lee Min-ho as a goodwill ambassador for the Sejong Institute. He plans to participate in the production of Korean and Korean culture learning content and conduct activities to promote Sejong Institutes around the world. 

 

Marking the 13th anniversary of his debut this year, Lee has appeared in more than 18 works, including "Boys Over Flowers," "The Heirs" and "The Legend of the Blue Sea." Not long ago, Kim Eun-sook's "The King: The Eternal Monarch" was the talk of the town.

 

Not only has he secured a huge fan base outside the country, but he has also continued sharing activities through donation, including environment, children and animals, through its donation platform "Promiz" since 2014. 

 

The ministry has designated and operated Sejong Institutes overseas since 2007 to promote Korean language and culture around the world. It started with 13 from the three countries in 2007 and has now expanded to 180 from 60 countries. About 60,000 foreigners are exposed to Korean language and culture at Sejong Institute each year. 

 

Meanwhile, the Sejong Institute will hold the opening ceremony of the "2019 World Korean Language Educators Conference" at the Plaza Hotel in central Seoul on July 9 to strengthen the expertise of overseas Korean language educators and establish a cooperative network.

 

https://n.news.naver.com/entertain/article/009/0004384076

 

The actor has long been committed to social contribution, through his donation platform, PROMIZ, so he is very suitable as the Institute's Ambassador for the promotion of Korean and Korean culture.

 

The Ambassador Appointment Ceremony will be held on July 9, where a letter of appointment will be issued to Actor Lee Min Ho

Hero of 'Boys Over Flowers' to promote Korean language, culture

optimize


By Park Si-soo 

Actor Lee Min-ho will promote Korean language and culture as a PR ambassador for the state-run King Sejong Institute. 

The appointment ceremony will take place at the Plaza Hotel in central Seoul on July 9, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism said. The institute, under the ministry's control, is committed to offering Korean language and cultural education programs for foreigners interested in the country. 

As of June this year, the institute has 180 offices in 60 countries, teaching nearly 60,000 foreigners Korean language and culture annually. 

Lee, who rocketed to stardom through TV series "Boys Over Flowers" (2009), has solid fan bases in many Asian countries. He cemented his fame with "City Hunter" (2011), "The Heirs" (2013) and "Legend of the Blue Sea" (2016).

"Lee has high popularity at home and abroad," a ministry official said. "We believe his presence (as PR ambassador) will help promote Korean language and culture."

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

 

Actor Lee Min-ho named as promotional envoy for Korean language education institutes

 

The government said Tuesday it plans to designate South Korean actor Lee Min-ho next week as a promotional ambassador to promote overseas institutes, established by South Korea, that offer foreigners Korean language courses and Korean culture activities.

The culture ministry and the Seoul-based King Sejong Institute Foundation are scheduled to hold a ceremony in Seoul next Tuesday to mark the designation of Lee, an icon of "hallyu," or the Korean wave, as an envoy for the state-run King Sejong Institute.

Named after the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) king who invented the Korean alphabet "hangeul," and launched in 2007, the institutes offer language education programs teaching Korean as a second language. 

As of June this year, there were 180 such institutes in 60 countries, where about 60,000 students were learning the Korean language.

The actor, who finished his military service in April this year, gained widespread fame from starring in "Boys Over Flowers" in 2009 and continued to ride a huge wave of popularity through his following works "City Hunter" (2011) and "The Heirs" (2013). (Yonhap)
