It’s disappointing for me to discover that Episode 3 of Lie to Me didn’t make any moves to improve on the first two episodes. It moved the plot forward in the most perfunctory of ways, without laying any solid emotional groundwork. Of all the May dramas, this was the one drama I personally wanted to love the most, but I fear greatly that it may end up being the turkey of the bunch. That would piss me off to no end.

This was a markedly slow episode, low on the zany antics and fast-paced story progression, but high on the rich emotional forward momentum. The ending of this episode also guaranteed that each and every single Drunken to Love You addict would be gnawing on our right arm for next week when we get to episode 6 which promises us, in one word, OMGTHATISSOHOT. After tackling some professional hurdles in episode 4, it’s time for our Jie Xiu and Xiao Ru to tackle some of their long simmering and festering emotional scars. Continue reading
The upcoming MBC college-set music-themed K-drama You’ve Fallen for Me (formerly known as Festival), has selected the fan-voted title Heartstrings for it’s English title (while the Korean title remains You’ve Fallen for Me). I know, it’s totally weird, but I do like the title Heartstrings, which alludes to both the romance and the music elements of this drama.
The drama commenced filming today, as it has only 7 weeks to go until its premiere following the end of Best Love. The first stills of leading lady Park Shin Hye have been released, and it looks like it was a day of shooting on campus as her character attends classes. Continue reading
This will be the second to last written preview I bring for 49 Days, which is bittersweet, much like how this drama makes me feel. I’ve ended up loving 49 Days so much that it’s earlier bumps now seem so distant. I won’t hazard a guess as to how this drama will end, only that I am expecting to cry another bucket of tears, hopefully all happy rather than sad. Continue reading
The original flavor flower boy, though I should perhaps call him flower man now that he’s completed his military service, has been released from MS for all of less than two weeks, and he’s probably done more than I do in half a year. Jo In Sung‘s first post-MS CF is already out, and he’s going James Bond suave to hawk SK-telecom’s W mobile phone. Rumor have been flying on which project Jo In Sung will pick for his comeback role, and I’ve heard that he’s leaning heavily towards doing a movie, which is unsurprising since he’s done only movies for the last few years prior to his enlistment.

This is it, folks. I’m officially sold. Do you accept credit cards, oh production of Material Queen? The upcoming TW-drama held a press conference this week with Lynn Xiong and Daniel Chan (Vanness Wu couldn’t make it due to scheduling conflicts) as the promotional train continues. While the more I watch the first trailer the more I love the trailer (still iffy about the drama itself), I thought the second teaser trailer was pretty cool as well, it’s this third preview that has me signing up for the MQ ship come June. I’m serious, I love this video!
The video below contains BTS footage of the filming, an interview with costume designer Patricia Field, and a third teaser at the end. If anyone is curious about MQ, please take a look, because I was pretty impressed with the painstaking detail that went into creating this drama. While Patricia Field’s designs are hit or miss with me, the genius of her creativity is that her hits are stratospheric and her misses so hideous it gives one nightmares. I adore her creed – dressing is about expressing one’s individual identity, not about brand or price. Continue reading
