Translated excerpts from LMH IG Live (part 2)

cr: @Latifah_

 

(cont'd)

Every neighborhood has its special food that it’s famous for and different from the other, so depending on what you want to eat you can select the neighborhood and get to enjoy every part of Seoul that way.

As for Busan it’s Haeundae. And if you go to Haeundae in this season, you’ll find lots of Pojangmacha (tented restaurants on streets), I love eating seafood ramyun from there. I always look for Haeundae’s Pojangmacha whenever I go to Busan.

Thanks for posting this, @syntyche. Re instagram live video: "'I don’t usually go outside' (Minho is a homebody)." Can you imagine the crowd if he did decide to go out for casual dining?! I imagine that's one of the downsides of celebrity. We often see pictures of him eating outside in other places, like Paris.  He can probably get away with that in those countries, although that may be shrinking if he continues to get more famous.

Yup, @MsDot2. It's actually good for him that he's a homebody. It would be challenging for him to go around his hometown/country anonymously. But I'm glad he could still do that when he's abroad. And he gladly shares it with his fans. We may not get much IG updates from him when he is in Korea, but he blesses us with nice photos/vids on his trips abroad. :)

Hi MsDot, this is good & advantage for his safety. We all know that die-hard fans would go as far as stalking celebrities by waiting for hours outside their agencies. This is the reason why they are always photographed wearing facial masks whenever they are in public places. Most Korean celebrities go to very small cafes that are usually managed by someone they personally know, or owned by another celebrity. These cafes are hard to find as they like to keep a very low profile. :P

Hi syntyche, thanks for sharing this.  LMH is a homebody indeed! Ye, Yeonnam-dong is popular for its dining scene, with hip restaurants serving all kinds of food from European to Asian food. This is the latest hot place in Seoul. I do agree with him that Seoul is all about restaurants. So, he loves Haeundae. I guess because he loves beaches. Visiting a fish market is a must for every visit to Busan. Jagalchi Fish Market is extremely famous for it is Korea's largest seafood market. During my 1st visit in Korea some years ago I was intrigued to see rows of tents, clad in orange or blue-striped plastic with see-through plastic windows. I peered through their plastic windows to see seats, tables, food, and people. The people sat in groups with food and drinks, huddling around heaters against the cold outside. I longed to go in. I asked myself  - What were these mysterious places? Ahhh.......they were (and are) the famous pojangmacha of Korea, places where any traveller can stop, briefly or at length, for a bit of inexpensive food. Pojangmacha are something like a restaurant on wheels, a movable bar. You usually see this at Korean dramas. Koreans all know that a pojangmacha is a place you go to drink, and we’re not talking about juice here. hahaha - The next time or when you visit Seoul  —  just look for that flash of orange plastic. Inside you will find a remarkable array of food and a simple but potent range of alcohol. If you don’t speak Korean, don’t worry: everything should be laid out on the cart and you can simply point to the food you want prepared.

Pojangmachas are usually cash-only businesses. No credit cards are allowed. Pojangmachas do NOT have bathrooms. But, that roll of toilet paper hanging in the pochangmacha is your napkin! hahaha - If you are cold, drink some of the hot broth there. It’s free! The main beverage consumed in pojangmacha is soju. :P

I like that JJ teaches SC not to give up once she chooses the person. LOL, he heard her talking about leaving and that freaks him out that he could lose her. :D Then when he found out that the killer has been stalking SC, he gets really worried and won't let her be alone not realizing how strong she is and could easily overcome the killer. JJ finds SC cavorting with fashionista and thinks she is a beggar and does not want to touch her hands ha!

JJ is hard with his dad but he secretly hopes that his dad will come after him. He is rude to SC, saying she can leave him too. He cries when SC comforts him later admitting that he misses his dad . He kisses her and the next day, he is hot and bothered and sweetly makes her lunch. Both LMH and JJH are cute in this episode and when they go shopping, JJH looks fabulous. A lot of funny and interesting parts as the story advances.

10 Cheesy Romantic K-Dramas That Are Total Guilty Pleasures

 

 

Let’s be real. There are A LOT of cheesy K-dramas out there. Sometimes we watch a particular scene that we’ve seen countless times before that is off-the-charts cheesy, but we still can’t help but love it. There are various tropes or elements that usually result in a drama giving off a cheesy vibe. Some aspects include an accidental hug or kiss, an over-the-top confession, a background song, and super sweet displays of affection in the form of actions or words. And although these cheesy elements are enough to make us cringe, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that the K-drama is an absolute pleasure to watch. Here’s a look at 10 Romantic K-dramas that are cheesy but a total guilty pleasure.

 

Warning: Minor spoilers ahead!

 

 

 

6. “Heirs

“Heirs” is a K-drama that stars Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye as two star-crossed high school lovers. The drama was written by Kim Eun Sook, who has written some blockbuster scripts. “Heirs” took Korea and other parts of Asia by storm mainly for its cast, but we can’t take away from the fact that the cheesiness of the series also helped make for a pleasurable watch.

There’s a true divide of people who have watched this series. People either really loved it or really hated it. Those in the former group loved it for its predictability and accepted the cringiness of it all. Take this scene for example:

 

 

 

 

With the script, the actions, and background music, it makes for quite the cringe-worthy scene. But even with this, it’s so romantic!

 

“Heirs” is the type of drama that will make you want to cringe but also squeal with joy at the same time.

 

Start watching “Heirs”:

Hi everyone. With The King the Eternal Monarch  being my first “live” drama I was wondering in  what order events happen. For example does every new drama have a press conference - and is it just before the first episode goes out.? Can press conferences make a big difference to the reception a new drama gets? And final question - The Heirs YouTube video focuses on the cast but do the writer, producer/director also attend? 

It’s Friday morning here in the U.K. so wishing everyone a great weekend.

Hi Lindyloo ye, in Korea, there's always a presscon prior the drama's airing. A press conference is an event organized to officially distribute information about the drama & introduce it to the media/people. During the event the cast & the PD answer questions from the media.  They ask them questions on specific topics related to the drama.  This is important as to gain coverage in newspapers, magazines, blogs and on TV news broadcasts. The whole press conference should last no more than 45 minutes, including questions. The writer & producer are not really required to attend but the PD should be there. 

Also, there are dramas in Korea that practice having a "Ritual ceremony" prior the airing of drama – this is a prayer ceremony and wish for the drama to have good fortune. :P

One of my favorite scenes from ep 10.  LMH/HJJ is so cute!:heart:

Spoiler

LBS ep 10

Another good episode.  The Joseon scenes are becoming so sad.  Even though Shi Ah is annoying, HJJ could be a little nicer to her.  I loved Yoo na telling HJJ that he is unemployed heehee.  So, HJJ's mother called adjussi's wife and asked about him occasionally.  Why couldn't see spy on HJJ from afar?  (yeah I'm back on my soapbox)  Here it is--cute cute drunk HJJ.  I just want to hug drunk HJJ:heart:That cute laugh:tounge_wink: HJJ looks handsome at lunch at the Cha's .  It is rather sad for SC learning that her love is a conman.  Tae Oh is so cute trying to divert Shi Ah from entering her house.  SC is so disappointed in HJJ.  How did SC leave the house without HJJ knowing?  The last scene doesn't make sense with HJJ running aimlessly in the city looking for SC; it reminds me of Kim Tan running around in ES's new hometown in Heirs (ep 17?).  I wonder why the PD decided not to continue the epilogues?  Time constraints?  I know a lot of viewers liked them.  

Happy Labor Day weekend to my US chingus!   Is it confirmed that Kakao M acquired MYM?

Kakao M, an affiliate of Kakao's general content, to take over MYM Entertainment, which is affiliated with actor Lee Min-ho.
 

"Kakao M recently proposed it to MYM Entertainment and there are positive stories going on," said multiple entertainment industry sources on the 27th. 

 

MYM Entertainment is a one-man management agency established in 2016 under the co-chairing system of Lee Min-ho's pro-sister and chairwoman Lee Yoon-jung of Seoul and Star House Entertainment CEO Jang Young-hoon.

LOTBS, Ep. 9

 

I really enjoyed this episode, too. In addition to the scene with his father, I liked the shopping trip where they're setting up their mark.  And the discomfort they all feel in the car talking about a con man. My favorite, though, is after he sees his father. He says some really mean things to SC but she knows he's really hurting. The scene between HJJ and SC where he cries is so sweet, sad and moving. My husband was watching this with me and commented that LMH's nonverbals are really outstanding and what good instincts he has as an actor. And I laugh every time when HJJ later denies he cried, but SC assures him that he can tell her anything and she'll forget, and then he kisses her. Lovely.

Totally agree with your comments on this episode.

Aaand our boy is in the phase of romantic love, as he giddily prepares her breakfast. Love his slight smile upon seeing her photo on Tae Oh's phone. And sends it to himself! Hah. And love the part, too, when he secretly admires her photo on his phone.  :wub:

Really enjoyed your comments for this episode. Just perfect. Thanks @syntyche

Kakao M has been aggressively acquiring management agencies including MYM. If they are successful in acquiring MYM, LMH would be one of around 80 artists that are handled by Kakao M, together with the other big names in the K-entertainment industry.  We could only hope for the best for LMH's career, whatever turns out with this planned acquisition.

Thank you Willenette- I am really grateful to you for sharing your knowledge.

 I saw a YouTube of the ritual ceremony for Gangnam Blues.

Can I ask you another question - I’ve also seen on YouTube some script read throughs with all the cast there- is this usual or is it that only some of them are made public

LBS Ep 10.

I thought this episode really showed LMH’s great acting skills. The scene with the little girl Yoo-Na where she was saying she was invisible to people and no -body cared if she was at school or not and you could tell by JJ’s face how much he identified with the little girl- the scene in the earlier episode where as a child he was crying ill in bed and was ignored and then no one caring when he left home- I thought the emotion and empathy with Yoo-Na was all there in his face. Then the drunk scene- I was thinking back through his dramas and can’t remember him having much opportunity to play a comedy scene. He does this scene so well I hope he does more comedic scenes in future.  His face when the reveal of her being a mermaid comes was so full of shock and then the running scenes when the memories come crowding in so fast and furious that he doesn’t know what to do with himself and can hardly cope- what wonderful acting without a word being said. The writer of this drama Park Ji-eun must have been thrilled to see what he did with her script. 

 

 It’s no wonder KES wanted him for her new drama and said he was an actor she could trust.
