The Musical: First Impressions

I have to say, I didn’t think I would like this drama. I actually wasn’t going to watch this drama at all, primarily because the cast wasn’t exciting enough for me to watch.

However, I caught the first episode. Hm. My initial thoughts have been reversed. Episode 2 will determine for me if I keep watching or not.

News Bits: 8/21/11 Edition

News flash! Yoo Ji Tae and girlfriend Kim Hyo Jin are to get married!

They’ve set the date for December 2. They’ve been dating for 5 years now (whooo freakin’ long!), and met on the set of a photo shoot in 2003. They were friends until they announced their relationship back in May 2007.

It’s good news after news of Yoo Ji Tae’s feature-length directorial debut came out. Yoo is currently working on a screenplay about a female migrant laborer, which I think would be interesting as there are plenty of immigrant workers in Korea. While “migrant” does not necessarily mean “immigrant,” I think it would be interesting if the film was about someone who’s not natively from Korea. Anyways – he’s already directed four short films, but this will be his first feature-length film.

Countdown to 2011

Kim Tae Hee: So, what do you think of 2011?

Happy New Year to all!

It’s been a crazy year in 2010, and I’m really glad that it was. I’m looking forward to 2011 and the dramas to come. There will be My Princess (starring the two actors whom I think have the looks but not the depth in acting skill), Dream High (which might work out, but I’m actually looking forward to What’s Up more – if it ever airs), Sign (Hmmm… sounds like an underrated drama in the works), The Duo (fantasy sageuk anyone?), City Hunter (I actually wrote City Hunger at first – which could be an interesting drama in itself, but anyways…), Poseidon, Faith (if it ever gets a lead…), and The Musical (I think the trend for 2011 is to do a lot of musicals).

Hmm… sounds like a good year to catch up on old dramas!

Hehe – I sound cynical, but honestly, not a single drama has really caught my eye with this line up. I think 2010 was an awesome year, because there was a huge spectrum of good, bad, and the middlers. I wonder if 2011 will be the same…
