It is funny about calling himself a girly boy because it is kind of true that many flower boys are considered girly boys. Men are supposed to be macho, hairy, and muscular and  a lot of American women like those kind of men. Even American men consider Korean men, LMH included, Song Jun Ki, Kim So Hyun and many other top stars as sort of not manly enough or nerdy. However, I do not like those hunky ones and do not think Korean actors as girly. Some Kpop singers might because of the way they dress and make up that makes them look girly even though in person they may not be. Just saying ..........

Yes, my best friend thought LMH looked like a girl when I started raving about him in Faith (well, he does have long hair in that one). But over time she's gotten into Korean actors big time, and thinks LMH and Song Jun Ki are the best looking. Guess who's been watching LOTBS with me?

Hi @willenette, he has a scheduled filming for advertisement today, according to the official website. Seems like it's for Shinsegae Hotel.

December airing? Haven't heard of that one. Hopefully!

syntyche, ohhh................thanks for the reply, dear. I hope we could get to see the video of the ad soon. I guess you're correct since the pictures you posted above were outlet of a restaurant & the hotel room. So, this  must be Shinsegae Hotel. BTW, the drama has now been sold to SBS for TV airing. I hope this will be for Netflix airing, too. Looking forward to how the writer & PD will carry out the complicated  theme of this drama, which is also currently being dealt in RAIN's current drama Welcome 2 Life. Here's the one I read about the drama : Do you think this is true? :o:P

K-Drama Time Machine: Lee Min Ho Weaves Time Transcending Romance With Kim Hee Sun In “Faith”

20150104_faith.jpg

 

SEVEN YEARS AGO, LEE MIN HO AND KIM HEE SUN GIFTED FANS WITH A LOVE-AFFIRMING DRAMA IN FAITH.

Striding to a beautiful Goryeo era warrior and modern times plastic surgeon love story, Faith successfully established a connection that will not make it forgettable.

 

Spoiler

Faith.jpg

 

TITLE: FAITH
NETWORK: SBS
THEME: FANTASY, ROMANCE, HISTORICAL
LENGTH: 24 EPISODES
BROADCAST DATE: 13 AUG 2012 – 30 OCT 2012
MAIN LEADS: LEE MIN HO, KIM HEE SUN
OVERALL RATING: 4.5.gif
RE-WATCH VALUE: 4.5.gif
RELATED DRAMAS: QUEEN IN HYUN’S MAN, DESERVING OF THE NAME, ROOFTOP PRINCE

HIGHLIGHTS

SLOWBURNING YET LINGERING NARRATIVE

Taking a slow-moving approach, Faith moves to a direction where it was making the viewers join the drama characters. Cheering for them, feeling each of the character’s pain and glory is inevitable. It engrosses with the happy moments and draws frustrations with the inability to end the villains vile ways. It successfully established a connection that will not make it forgettable.

The baddies who were at a fight-club mood all the time has brought out the best of the protagonists. They had a firm understanding of their presence that never wavered its proportion all throughout. Even at those times when the narration was at a billowing pace, the interaction of the characters efficiently set the mood of the story.

CLEAR CONFLICT PRESENTATION

Focusing on its projected conflict, the series divided the presented problems to the political assertions and the save-the-doctor-struggle in the winding part of the story.  The main character Choi Young, weary but bound to his responsibility to the king was always resolved in prioritizing him. Inevitably, it has pained him that he cannot protect the woman he loves. When his inability to wield his sword struck in the home stretch, I was so worried that they may not get an ever-after. Hence, when he went back to his nothing-fazes-me attitude and went Kenshin Himura to all the people who has been blocking the road to happiness with his woman, it yielded a defining moment highlighting the hero of the story.

A drama moving through political governance contention and draped by the traditional settings normally sets a serious tone. However, how the heroes and villains pulled the tricks on their sleeves eased out the ambiance to set an immersing watch.

ENGROSSING ON-SCREEN ROMANCE

Adding dynamics to the romance line, Kim Hee Sun as the time-travelling doctor was the source of zest and held the magical twist in the story. At the latter part, I enjoyed immensely the sweet nothings and the lines she shared with Choi Young. Additionally, Faith also showcased the fact that Lee Min Ho has proven that he can carry a drama by himself. In all fairness to Eun Soo, she was able to give justice to the general-in-the-black-and-grey-armor love connection she shared with Choi Young through her vibrant attitude. She was strong and serene, at the same time, she avoided the lead girl theatrics of always wanting to be rescued. Instead, her steadfast love patiently found its way to the man of her life.

Img0402_20121015132537_2.jpg

 

Eun Soo, who was actually the wandering doctor they were really looking for in the onset of the series, has traveled through time in the hopes of fulfilling her fated love with the dashing General. She lost her way many times, and in her sojourns prior to her eventual meeting of Choi Young, has left clues for her future self which she was not aware of on the presumed present time.

Choi Young and Eun Soo came from different time and extremely have different personalities. But, they have nailed their romantic scenes so perfectly. The loving gazes, the watching each other while asleep, the cheeky arguments, the no-matter-what-I’ll-protect-you-assurances and the love that was fated to happen – was a convincing and fetching depiction of love that can surpass reasons and beyond reasons.

RECOMMENDATION

Assimilating the action plot with the supernatural spices and decorating it with folklore made Faith an astounding drama treat. Having a band of villains equipped with mojos and X-men powers, a sassy and bubbly modern day doctor that was lost cutely to a new world she was forced to live, and of course the Thor-ish General who made Kenshin Himura looked so inferior – were the essentials that made this drama such an enthralling TV experience.

The provocative plot matches the annoying villain assaults and the firm spirited retaliation of the underdogs. I know that goodness will prevail in the end, and I was looking forward to how the protagonists will take their final stand considering how smooth the pounces were of the bad guys.

In the year when most of the things in K-Dramaland involved paranormal activities and strongly portrayed characters, Faith rose to be different. Having Lee Min Ho in this drama would take his fans to a higher level of adoration. But more than that, it was really the effective way of how the drama sweetly chained viewers through an endearingly sketched narrative. The story made sure that the characters shone memorably, while the characters moved in sync to the story.

WHY YOU SHOULD WATCH FAITH?

Faith is a remarkable love tale albeit the consistent dawdling and sageuk clichés. It successfully notched the path where it was directing the audience to – hope, holding on faith and feeling real happiness.  Faith’s ability to balance the transcendent elemental nonsense was plausible and cohering to how it mounted to the story’s peak.

Utilizing the back-to-the-future arc linked the primary message and the title of the drama – FAITH.  Every essence of it and how a person should have faith to claim the love he deserves.  “Was I lacking of my yearning to see him or was I lacking faith?”  This was a very strong line I remembered from the drama and has pierced directly to my romantic veins.

Defying time and never giving up on their love, even if the time played with them makes Faith a drama worthy to be added on your watch list.

QUICK PLOT ROUNDUP

Choi Young, the strong and steamy hot Woodalchi warrior was a General serving the Goryeo King.  His last mission before embarking to his dream of becoming a bummer was to escort the new King and his queen that was held hostage by the Yuan Empire.

The opposing forces tried as much as they can to have the King not reach the palace.  They were unsuccessful with their intention but were able to harm the queen.

Should the queen die, Goryeo will be facing Sauron’s eye because the queen was a Mongolian Yuan empire princess so the King desperate to find a cure to salvage the wounded queen resorted to an urban legend of a famous doctor who just suddenly disappeared.  He commanded the General, Choi Young of the Royal family’s elite soldiers to go to the Heaven’s Door to bring the doctor.

 

Img0402_20121022131221_1.jpg

 

THE DOCTOR FROM HEAVEN’S DOOR

Choi Young bravely went to the portal and what they thought to be a heavenly place turned out to be modern day Gangnam city in Korea where he found Yoo Eun Soo, a plastic surgeon.

Not realizing and buying the craziness of the whole deal I guess, the general grabbed the doctor to Goryeo period to fulfill the King’s command with a promise that he will return the abducted doctor.

Complications arose when the news of a doctor from heaven swept the Kingdom, the wily Prince Gi Cheol, who has sworn brothers and sisters with supernatural abilities wanted Yoo Eun Soo for his invincibility dreams.

From there, Choi Young promises to protect the doctor. Eventually, falling in love with her in the process.

4 Korean Dramas On Netflix To Get You Hooked

Cheesy plots, eye candy, ramyeon. What’s not to love?

The following 4 shows will allow viewers to dip their toes in the water and, hopefully, take a dive into the addicting realm of Korean drama.

 

Boys Over Flowers

There was no way I could make this list and not include a classic Korean drama. “Boys Over Flowers” was one of the first shows which captured my attention. Once I got passed the cringeworthy hairstyles, binging the series from start to finish was smooth sailing.

 

71n6DEsPU2L._RI_.jpg

 

The show was directed by Jeon Ki-sang and created by Yoon Ji-ryeon. The K-drama classic was originally released in early 2009. Yet, the series still manages to tug on heartstrings and convert viewers into K-drama fans.

Hye-seon Ku (Jan-di) and Lee Min-ho (Jun-Pyo) are the main characters of the series, and they don’t exactly start off on the right foot.

The pair become familiar with each other after Jan-di gets enrolled in the same prestigious high school. Jun-pyo doesn’t like Jan-di. That much is clear, and he is determined to teach her a lesson. Between dealing with the rude boy and the mean girls of her new school, Jan-di fights to remain optimistic even though her world has been flipped on its head.

This is one of the few series I have re-watched again and again. Like most K-drama shows, it is impossible not to become invested in the lives of the characters.

Watching any one of these series or more will be the perfect introduction to K-dramas, and it will help determine what you enjoy most within a show.

Hi syntyche, thanks for sharing this. This is a 5-star hotel. I didn't know that this is a boutique hotel brand of Shinsegae Chosun Hotel. This is just a 15-minute walk to Namsan Park. This is new, which opened just last year. It's an urban French-style boutique hotel brand. We can see this on the pictures you posted. I have worked before in a hotel - In the hotel industry a high-end modern hotel goes old in 10 years, no matter how great it starts off.  You know, this hotel has its pet-friendly aspect. They have an exclusive floor for guests with pet dogs. The rooms are prepared with needed amenities and beds for pets. One of their restaurants, a modern Chinese one has a separate zone for guests with pets to dine at. :P

Hi i-Minoz, thanks for sharing this. Ratings from a drama bring along recognition, and recognition is directly associated with CF contracts. Advertisements are a rich source of income for many Korean celebrities. For actors and idols, endorsements are like extra credit points or salary bonuses from your boss at the office — something that’s not explicitly part of work expectations, but secretly hoped for anyway. Commercial deals provide an avenue for celebrities to gauge their own popularity and image. I'm happy for LMH! :P
