Seoul connection How K-dramas are building a bridge between India and South Korea

 

New Delhi, Aug 14 (PTI) Rich man-meets-poor woman, a cross-border love story or the classic underdog tale - replace banyan trees with cherry blossoms, the Ganges with Han river and what one gets is a Korean drama with all the themes popular in the Indian space.

 

Respect for elders, showing affection through food and navigating social disapproval for falling in love with a younger guy are some of the other themes that find a resonance in Indian culture.

 

While the Korean wave or 'Hallyu' dates back to the 1990s, the increased penetration of Internet and streaming services in the last few years has made South Korean stars like Lee Min-ho of "Boys Over Flowers", etc. household names in India.

Hi everyone, I have just joined Soompi and this is my first post. I have never been in this kind of entertainment forum but COVID-19 pandemic lockdown brought me to K-drama and I have recently became a fan of Lee Min Ho. I have been lurking here for several weeks and today decided to be an active participant of this thread. :smiley:

 

The King Eternal Monarch was my first Lee Min Ho's drama  and I have been watching all of his other works except Faith and Bounty Hunters (already on my list). I love his performances in all of his works, besides being a drop-dead gorgeous, his acting has also tremendously growing throughout the years. I also recently found out that he loves children and animal, also contributes regularly to social causes. Hot, handsome, talented with a golden heart. Lee Min Ho is such swoon-worthy actor. I am officially a fan girl.

 

I am already looking forward for LMH's next fan meeting, I hope this pandemic ends soon.

Glad to meet fellow Minoz here and I am happy to read all of your posts here.

:allgoodlol:

Thank God TKEM was on Netflix this quarantine, as it ended up introducing me to Kdramas and to Lee Min Ho.


Welcome on board @JoannaID and @pocmagica

I was introduced to LMH through TKEM too, due to the lockdown !    And joined this forum right after.   Glad that you decided to be active @JoannaID - looking forward to seeing your posts more.  Same to you @pocmagica :heart:

I seldom post anymore but do visit soompi frequently and just signed in to vote on favorite couple and post here with the hope that my comment "somehow" is heard about styling this super attractive man we all appreciate so much.  A couple of pages back there's this unflattering girly photo in which our man is wearing a feminine necklace and striking a pose that is very fey.  This also happened right before TKEM and got acknowledged similarly by one or two Soompiers then.  I'd hoped that was it.  But here we are again.  It's not a good look.  Bring back the "man" we all love.  Quickly!  Thanks for reading.

I thought of another fun poll-favorite character(s) we love to hate--not necessarily only villains, but third wheels in a relationship, bothersome parents etc.  Nominations are open!  I have a couple in mind.

 

Hats Down JO Young from TKem.I Loved Him to death, but His irritating nature of Being a Meddler made me mad.

Hi- I haven’t posted on here for a while but wanted to pop on to say how great 
@CallieP’s response was to the Han Cinema articles. 
 

It’s awful to think that LMH must be reading some of the horrible, uncalled for comments in certain blogs, twitter etc. Last year MYM put out a similar notice re this but this time they have involved lawyers so hopefully that will stop a lot of it.

 

Don’t know if this has been mentioned before but leeminhosha who puts some great videos on YouTube has done a brilliant one called The King You are the leader - and Minho looks so gorgeous in every scene!
 

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Well I don't really identify uch from either, maybe a bit of OTT GJD(Shouting every now and then) and Purposefully acting SHY like SC with your BF kinda made it relatable, and yes ES (when she did not get good marks in her exams and said you cannot expect a 99th position ranker not to cry to YD).

 

These few parts I identify with. :D 

 

I have to choose between City Hunter and Personal Taste after LOTBS ... which should I go first?

 

Hah I choose on the preference of FL then, PT is my genre but CH looked thrilling , I do not like PMY so SYJ won in my case :D , and yes also PT is avaialble in Viki, whereas I had to hunt for City Hunter in my region.

Watch PT because it came earlier. Man you will swoon he is such a  good boyfriend in it.  Don't worry about City Hunter. It's a mix of genres. It's really entertaining and a drama crack!

According to an article https://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2020/07/28/veteran-actor-lee-jung-jae-to-make-directorial-debut.html Lee Jun Jae is (or will be) a PD and writer.  Hmmm...

  Reveal hidden contents

Is it possible LMH had dinner with Lee Jun Jae to discuss a possible role in the movie?  I googled Lee Jun Jae because I wondered why LMH was having dinner with him.  Sure, it could be that they're friends, but maybe something more?

 

 

@CarolynH, thanks for sharing the link. For sure, he'll be a good PD since Lee Jung-jae, is a very good actor, known for his role in the film "The Thieves". He also co-founded the entertainment management company, Artist Company. :blush:

@Min2206 After Heirs (which was my first), I went about in a chronological order of his shows from Boys Over Flowers and enjoyed it very much too. You could go that route..the point is you have to watch all of them. PT is a very good rom-com. But City hunter has a bit of hot romance but lots of swoon worthy action scenes of LMH. But if haven't watched BOF, then you need to start from there - just for LMH. BOF is not my favorite drama, but you can see why LMH is LMH in that.

Aishh Tell me about it. I sat through 25 episodes out of which GJP was locked in 15+ episodes just because of LMH. Fan Service to Oppa. I can't watch it a swcond time. Its like a Vintage Heirs.

 

Heirs was my second show had a similar trajectory but man was It worth watching. I sat up hooting and clapping 2 am at night on Some Scenes (Lucifier Returns to Devildom particularly). The Cast itself is so Amazeballs.

I have done Faith and  BOF, @Aleumdaun after The King, then Gangnam Blue (cos I heard he was in a different light which he owns in that movie, totally rawr and courageous (me running out of abjectives to put).  Followed by The Heirs and just finished LOTBS 2 days ago .. planning to start the next one.  So I asked which first .. PT or CT?  Haha!

Hi @JoannaID welcome to the LMH thread!  And welcome back @kdyes and @Lindyloo421 (thought we lost you:kiss_wink:)

*******

In the end, I choose CY and ES and KDR and SH as my favorite pairing.  Neither couple had much PDA, but the love, not a physical (that we know of!) but an emotional love that both couples had for each other, is the reason for my choices.  I thought of choosing HJJ and SC, but KDR and SH's love was more emotional to watch.  I also wanted to choose GJP and Ha Jae kyung; I thought they had more chemistry than the leads.  I liked how she was able to push GJP around.  

********

@madmad min  Jo Young was not expected at all as a nominee for characters you love to hate!  lol.  I'll add him to the list!

***********

@Min2206  Glad you are watching PT next since my quiz is ready for that drama.  It's not a flashy drama compared to the others, but it's still good.

*****

Hope you all are having fun with the poll.  It's interesting to see how people voted.  Something to keep us busy while we wait and wait and wait :Pandabulous:

Ah, my bad. Sorry. You have watched GB? I am yet to watch it. My husband watched it for me - he really liked it. He used the exact same word as you too. He also said he didn't '"once think that this was the guy in the Heirs and TKEM". He suggested that I watch it after the kids are in school so I can immerse myself in it, esp since it looks like I will be working from home a lot longer.

 

I don't want the kids in school just yet, cos of COVID concerns but watching LMH being RAWR without distractions is tempting.  I would like my kids to go to school - to have some me time with LMH.

I am so bad!:headbang:

I chose, CY and ES , HJJ and SC for my choices, why?  CY and ES had the best chemistry. I had a hard time choosing the second as I was debating between several others but finally selected HJJ and SC. :happyshakes:
