The Hong Sisters have been gone for so long they could have been featured on “What’s Happening With…”. For regular writers, a year or two off would be no big thing, but for the Hong Sisters? The writing pair where for years, they came out big hit after big hit each consecutive year? Their silence has been noticed.
After all this time, they’re coming back with a new drama called Hwayugi, scheduled to come out by the end of the year on tvN. Read more
For someone who is crazy about music, who can’t go without 5-10 minutes without something going on in my headphones, thanks to an unfortunate phone with limited memory, I don’t have a lot of actual albums stored there. This means I have to strategically plan for what I think I’m going to listen to. So when I realize I have multiple CD’s of one band, it is pretty telling. Read more
And if you listened verrry closely? Do you hear that? That noise? Right there? That my friends is the sound of SaraG wailing her loss. Her children will never know the wonder that was to be New Daddy. Of course, the sound you hear could also be the cumulative cries of many a Song Joong Ki fangirl. Read more
Hey everyone! KpopontheDL here! While SaraG is off on vacation, I offered to cover her Musical Monday! I’m sort of famous around here for my love of nugus (newbie groups) and this is a perfect opportunity for me to introduce you to a group we’ve all been watching with interest.
Last week’s request of Jasper Liu spawned a request for more dimples! We like to please around here so we started to construct a list, or, I should say, Stephanie started to construct a list because it appears I am dimple blind. I don’t notice them. I couldn’t think of a single person! So this list is largely due to Stephanie and the Internet’s affection for dimples. Though, like I said last week, the pleasure of doing this post, and being in Kpop in general, is my new appreciation for charm points I hadn’t noticed before. So, bring on the dimples!
In this episode, we’re talking about what we’re watching! And we’re watching stuff! And Stephanie is very excited about what she’s watching (Ahem… Fight My Way). We discuss how a Kpop book has Jr McFeeley incensed. And we talk about some newsy topics like casting news for Kwang Soo and Lee Byung Hun, Yoo Ah In and Seo In Guk’s recent military news, and BTS blowing away the internet. We may also have a discussion how Stephanie may or may not now have dominion over all things Korean. (She doesn’t make the rules she just lives by them…)
SaraG is off to recharge her batteries with her required yearly international travel. Which means you’re stuck here with me for these musical instances. Okay so, not gonna lie, I almost forgot I was supposed to be covering for her today so, I don’t really have anything special for you planned. Once I had that “Oh Crap” moment I was wondering what to showcase for you guys, and then realized I’ve actually been listening to the same song for about three weeks straight.
Everyone is very excited for the news that Lee Byung Hyun has signed up to star in Kim Eun Seuk’s upcoming drama. This will be his first time back to tv-land since Iris (which in dog years of Kdrama, was a very, very long time ago). To this, I shrug my shoulder. Why are we surprised huge stars are willing to work with Kim Eun Seuk still? She is THE drama hitmaker in Kdrama right now. Has been for years. It’s almost universally known that a show of hers will be instantly popular and the stars (well, the male leads) become instant household must-haves. (Gong Yoo, Song Joong Ki, Lee Min Ho) Her shows are pretty much shoo-ins for the lexicon of the Kdrama-much watch. So when I see so and so top star has agreed to be in her show, it gets an ‘eh’.
Now her premises though, that’s a different story, and her upcoming drama is no exception…
