Recommended Posts

I am really curious what the meeting is about?  I was hoping a drama but if he is thinking of Ask the stars... then perhaps not.  Maybe a commercial in the US? One can only hope.  He still has the Huntington Beach clip to show I think and the LACMA.  So LMH Episode 3 coming soon.  Yaay!

Goo Jun Pyo (Lee Min Ho) has got all the characteristics needed to be a chaebol. He’s good-looking, charming, popular, has a lot of friends, and is pretty arrogant, so it’s no wonder when Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun) transfers to his school that he treats her horribly. He bullies her, which in turn makes his fellow classmates bully her too. It takes a destined event and transformation for Jun Pyo to realize that his hate for her may not actually be hate but genuine feelings of affection.

 

Seeing an ice-cold Goo Jun Pyo go from being very mean to the new girl to following her around like a love-sick puppy, “Boys Over Flowers” will have you intrigued. The series is a classic. It has brought in a large wave of K-drama viewers and deservedly so! There is an adorable main love story and an epic love triangle that the K-drama world continues to talk about to this day. You’re bound to get sucked into their whirlwind romance!

6 weeks passed, and Nobody talks about Dr. Brain in Korea, articles of drama are so little ,even you count easily. This is result Apple Tv's poor promotion in Korea.Nobody didn't talk drama. I never saw a post about Dr. Brain . I am worried about Pachinko too.Disney made so much noise while they enter in Korea. But nobody talks about Apple Tv in Korea..It seems Apple Tv isn't best decision.

Here we are again Friday!  Join the rewatch of Heirs ep 14!

cr:  SBS via Timepass Paisa Wasool

 

**********

I think Apple TV should have launched in SK earlier so Koreans could see what good shows Apple TV has secured.  I've liked almost everything that I have seen on Apple TV.  A lot of big stars have shows or movies on Apple such as Jennifer Aniston, Tom Hanks, Paul Rudd (and soon LMH :grin:with any luck!).  I might extend my subscription because Leonardo Di Caprio's ( with Robert DeNiro) movie will also be on Apple.  Those are big names, so Apple must be doing something right.

Did you see South Korea Netflix TOP 10? Koreans watch almost just Korean dramas and show , Top 10 almost full of Kdramas , so they don't care so much foreign dramas.Also They watch mostly shows on Wavve , TOP 20 full of Korean shows.And Apple TV has just Dr. Brain. Drama started and ended nobody talked about it. Disney bought Running Man and has so many Kdramas now .

We have listed out the top ten best K-dramas that you should watch this Christmas to make your day a little merrier! The series have been selected based on the cool winter setting and cozy warm feels that are perfect for this festive season. Happy reading!

Looking for an old-school drama this Christmas with a cliché but addicting storyline? ‘The Hiers’ starring Lee Min-ho and Park Shin Hye might be your pick! The story revolves around a group of teenagers attending the same high school, classified by the social position of their families. Kim Tan was sent away from Korea by his half-brother when he was fifteen to prevent him from meddling in the family business. However, when Kim Tan meets a poor girl from South Korea, Cha Eun Sang, he cannot help but keep falling for her in spite of being engaged to the daughter of a wealthy family.

He finally returns and realizes that Eun Sang’s mother has been working at his place while he was away. And now begins the epic, impulsive and passionate love story of the two while also being strangled with corruption and a love triangle.

 

Legend of the Blue Sea (2016)

Screenwriter: Park Ji Eun
Director: Jin Hyeok
Starring: Jun Ji Hyun, Lee Min Ho, Lee Hee Joon, Shin Won Ho, Moon So Ri, Shin Hye Sun
Total Number of Episodes: 20
Where to Stream: Netflix, We TV, Viki, Hulu

 

The year 2016 was the golden year for the K-drama watchers as multiple memorable Korean series were produced and ended up occupying a huge place in our hearts. One of them is ‘Legend of the Blue Sea—’ a show centering on the love story of a mermaid named Shim Chung and a con artist, Heo Joon Jae. Despite an unusual first meeting and Joon Jae trying to fool her into giving away her jade bracelet to him, the two eventually get along owing to a turn of events.

However, their bond isn’t just based on coincidences but also an incomplete past story of which they are yet to know. While Shim Chung adapts herself to the new environment, she realizes that the world isn’t full of pure-hearted people like her.

I agree with what you wrote about Apple TV  CarolynH - there are some good shows on- I am enjoying some of the dramas and films and being British I love Ted Lasso!  I struggled with Dr. Brain. 

Because Pachinko is very much based on Korean’s history I am hoping that will boost SK subscriptions, as well as the great cast. I seem to recall that Netflix 

subscriptions in SK really went up because of TKEM.

 

I feel really excited about 2022- we’ve got Pachinko- we may have the space drama  and he had those meetings in LA. Everything crossed!

I read that one of the places in the 2nd ep of the vlog is Eva Chow's (co-chair of the LACMA event) home in Holmby Hills.  It's the room that, to me, looks like a museum.  The place where the meeting took place looks, to me again, like the Beverly Hills Hotel.  Waiting for Minoz investigation as to the meeting place lol.

*********

Wow, the price of a ticket to the LACMA event was $10,000; tables $100,000!

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/25/fashion/eva-chow-the-culture-queen-of-los-angeles.html

 

Ok, I think the switch went on in my brain.  Eva Chow's husband owns the Mr Chow restaurant where LMH had dinner.  Finally, we are connecting the dots!

"The Legend of the Blue Sea"

 

A male lead who believes in taking from the rich and getting rich in turn and a female lead who is quite literally a mermaid make for a romantic comedy that is one for the K-Drama history books. Lee Min-ho and Jun Ji-hyun's electric chemistry is unbeatable and there are no two ways about it.

This drama series stars Jun Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho. It is inspired by a classic Joseon legend from Korea’s first collection of unofficial historical tales about a fisherman who captures and releases a mermaid. The Legend of the Blue Sea is a romance between a con artist and a mermaid who travels across the ocean to look for him.

 

Jun Ji-hyun plays Shim Cheong, a mermaid, while Lee Min-ho plays Heo Joon-jae, a witty con artist. The series revolves around rebirth, fate, and unrequited love. Shim Cheong and Heo Joon-jae’s story is juxtaposed with the parallel story of their Joseon-era incarnations, the mermaid, Se-hwa, and town head, Kim Dam-ryeong.

Thank you Syntyche for the IG info. - according to Ice he is meeting designer

Cho Gi-Seok.


I always take articles on LMH’s worth with a pinch of salt!
As we know he never media plays, MYM never disclose his fees

and if the figures surrounding Pachinko are correct he certainly earns a lot more per episode then quoted here.

Although it looks simple, to be able to get a curtain cut hairstyle, you have to grow your hair thick. This hairstyle is usually often used by people who have tall posture, because it will add a cool and volume effect to the beauty of their hair.

Then, you can shape it by trimming the side of the hair, and make sure it is neatly shaved, yes. This curtain cut hairstyle is back in trend among young people, so it's perfect for you.
