The Time That They Were (not) In Love?

TheTimeThatWeWereInLove_Poster

With just over two weeks before the premiere of ​The Time That I Loved You, 7000 Days, SBS has found it the right time to change the title. The Korean title is “너를 사랑한 시간,” which Google translates to, “You loved hours.” A Korean translator says, “The Time I Loved You.” But SBS says the English title is “The Time We Were Not In Love.”

At least the one thing that’s consistent is ‘7000 Days’ is out of the equation.

I get that SBS probably wants to give a title that reflects the drama the most, but you’re telling us two very different things! Either they’ve been in love for a long time, or they never loved each other that entire time! What’s going on?! Pick something!

To those who’ve seen the original Taiwanese drama this is based off of, In Time With You, the two titles could make sense. But as someone who likes to rely on the English title telling me how to read and interpret the Korean title, this is confusing as heck.

Petty rant, over.

 

Yoo Ah In Out, Lee Jin Wook In

Yoo Ah In is no longer going to be in Doctor Frankenstein, as had previously been assumed. And he’s taking that May KBS time slot with him because now the production seems to have been pushed back in favor of another ‘monster-esque’ drama, Hello Monster. And that drama will star Lee Jin Wook.

Ebook: I Need Romance 2012 Recaps!

And here it is! The ebook for I Need Romance 2012. Starring Jung Yoo Mi, Kim Ji Suk, and Lee Jin Wook, this was an interesting take on romance because it’s all about timing. For the main couple, they would have been perfect for each other if they were at the same emotional level at the same time, and that’s the only reason why they kept breaking up.

Spy Myung Wol: First Impressions

This particular first impressions post will cover the first four episodes of Spy Myung Wol. Sometimes I do only 1 episode, sometimes I do it after 4, and it’s really just based on how I saw the drama. The Princess’ Man wasn’t compelling enough for me to launch into Episode 2 right away, whereas for Spy Myung Wol, I actually saw episodes 3 and 4 before I saw 1 and 2.

I think watching it out of order did not help me appreciate this drama any more. However, now that I’ve seen all the episodes, things are making sense now.

News Bits: 6/10/11 Edition

Seo Hyo Rim (who was last seen in Sungkyunkwan Scandal as Jun Tae Soo‘s silly younger sister who was in love with Micky Yoochun) will take a dramatic turn as she joins the cast of Scent of a Woman. The drama, which also stars Kim Sun Ah, Lee Dong Wook, and Uhm Ki Joon, will air on July 16. Seo’s character is a cold-hearted chaebol heiress (OOH – hey! It’s not a cold-hearted chaebol MAN, but a WOMAN!) who has had her heart broken after willing to give up her entire wealth to be with this man.

Iiiiinteresting.

Spy Myung Wol is No Melodrama

Well – we kinda knew it wasn’t going to be a melodrama when the premise is a North Korean spy falls in love with a Hallyu actor. But then again – you never know – it could have been an ATHENA mixed with Best Love but no Hong Sisters humor. That would make it an action/melodrama type.

But guess what! The plot is: Han Ye Seul is the spy tasked with stopping the spread of Hallyu fever in North Korea.

Oh my God. Just when you thought it was over…

The fight between Seo Taiji and Lee Jia rages on. I was already ready to move on to drama world – and they create their own drama in the headlines. Grr. Lee Jia had withdrawn her previous lawsuit, but apparently without notice to Seo Taiji’s side, and now he’s filing a lawsuit of his own. Yeah, I know right? His side wants to sort out the issue now, and so they’re both dragging their asses back to court on May 23.

I guess the reasoning is also that since everything is out in the open, they might as well sort out their problems rather than sweeping it under the rug. There’s no way they can escape this scandal anymore, so they might as well battle it out. Besides, who knows? What if Lee Jia decides to raise hell again and submit another lawsuit? I can understand if that’s Seo’s reasoning, but honestly? Why so public?
