Eric and Han Ye Seul Make Peace

Han Ye Seul returned on set a mere 48 hours after she had left it and flew to the States. It goes without saying that the set must have been an awkward place to be. Her scenes with Eric Mun were initially awkward, and it didn’t help that Eric was wearing sunglasses so Han could not read any of his expressions.

Why hello Han Ye Seul! Hope L.A. weather is working for ya!

Funny ’cause… her mom arrived in Seoul. I just want to say – her case has been shockingly addicting for the Korean entertainment world, and as far as I know, unprecedented. I want to stop reporting about her, but I can’t. It’s like crack. I just want to know what happens next!

Although, it looks like they’re just going to kill her off.

Han Ye Seul to Be Replaced on Spy Myung Wol

What. The. Eff.

Again – I repeat that I don’t really like this drama. However, episode 10 ended on a promising note. So I’m kind of hoping for more closure on the Myung Wol – Kang Woo storyline here. I’d really like to see Han Ye Seul and Eric Mun go on their real dates and stuff, yunno? So even though I don’t like this drama, I’m damn disappointed by this outcome.

More Trouble for Spy Myung Wol?

Spy Myung Wol isn’t the greatest drama in my book. After a few more episodes, I’ve officially tuned out. I check in every so often (skipping episodes) and definitely saw the last few minutes of episode 10’s cliffhanger. However, Han Ye Seul isn’t a gripping lead, and though the premise is zany, I feel like it’s trying too hard to be normal. If you’re going to go zany, go all the way. Might as well have fun with it. I feel like the Dramabeans recaps make it far more amusing than it really is (for me), so I’d rather just read the recaps than watch the episodes.

But now the drama has been given a short extension (two extra episodes – eep!). It’s also on a live-shooting schedule, so imagine the trouble when its lead actress decides to not show up on set.

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.

Happy July 4th! Hope you’re all having fun with barbecues or watching the fireworks!

Yoon Eun Hye went down to Taiwan for a photo shoot – looks like to promote a new cellphone – and tweeted some photos of her fellow model Ethan Ruan! The two of them brought out the charms with their V-signs and making faces.

Man, they just look so good together…

Spy Myung Wol Teaser Trailer

I cracked up at this teaser – and it’s really made me excited for this drama. It starts off with Myung Wol (Han Ye Seul) planning to assassinate Kang Woo (Eric Mun), only to have a girlish ringtone interrupt her killing. She then changes her plan – she’s not going to kill him – she’s going to MARRY him!

Well now. That puts things in a knot, doesn’t it?

It’s like Shiri” – but funnier. Han also resembles Kim Tae Hee in certain angles, which makes me wonder how she would have done if she were in IRIS
