I still love Monstar and wanted to share some oldies but goodies from my treasure trove now that we’re in the final week of its run. The first teaser for Monstar was a stylish what-if fantasy sequence when the kids are sitting in the classroom and Se Yi strums her guitar and starts to sing, when the others hear her music it moves them and suddenly they form an indie rock band complete with too-cool hipster outfits. I love it. I confess K-pop and Korean music isn’t my cup of tea, I love K-songs when used in dramas or movies but stand alone I don’t follow Korean singers and definitely not idol groups. Other than when there is a cross over to acting. Occasionally I’ll fall for a charismatic young thing (like Shin Won Ho in Big) but not have any inclination to follow their other musical career. I’m finding my resolve tested inexplicably by Yong Jun Hyung who plays Yoon “I am a Star!” Seol Chan, and it has nothing to do with him being my dish. I’ve seen Ki Kwang and Doo Joon many times in multiple dramas but never had the urge to check out BEAST, who knew Jun Hyung would be the one to tempt me. He’s totally not my usual type, he looks funny and hardly would catch my eye but for the fact that he’s just so darn mesmerizing onscreen here. He radiates this energy and chemistry in every scene, and that sensation is amplified whenever he has a scene with either Se Yi or Sun Woo. I hope Color Bar doesn’t fall apart before they band together again and kick All for One six ways to Sunday at the duel to see which group wins at the Goddess Kiss showdown. Check out these lovely pics to save in your own stash and then rewatch the first awesome teaser. I can’t believe this cute little drama is ending this week, sniffles.
