Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

I just HAD to say something about this little dynamo that can hold its own against The Legend of the Blue Sea.

While many viewers were anticipating the premiere of Lee Min Ho’s latest drama, a few of us tuned in to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo mostly out of curiosity. Well, maybe not so for Nam Joo Hyuk’s die-hard fans, but we’re talking about David & Goliath proportions when these two dramas were pitted against each other in the Wed-Thurs prime time slot.

As I watched Lee Sung Kyung’s character transformation (from Bee-yotch Doctor in Doctors to No-nonsense Athlete in WFKBJ) in Episode 1, I had a feeling this could be her defining moment as an actor.

BLURB: She Was Pretty

SWP_MainPost2

Two weekends ago, I surprised myself for carving out time to browse through currently on-air KDramas… just to get a feel on what’s going on. Y’know what I mean?

I’ve really been out of the KDrama Universe, but I knew my Sweet Cheeks, Yoo Ah In, is in SBS’ Six Flying Dragons and Lee Dong Wook will dive into a romantic comedy with Jung Ryeo Won in Bubblegum (which I shall also check out later 🙂 )

So, with zero expectations, I began Episode 1 of She Was Pretty on Friday night, 8:30pm… and by Saturday noon, I couldn’t wait for the upcoming episode of this drama. Much thanks to the Meteorically Improved Choi Si Won o_O

Who would’ve thought he could metamorphosize the 2nd Male Lead character into the unofficial MALE LEAD for this drama?!  In fact, I was ROOTING for him to be with Hye Jin instead of Sung Joon!!

What blasphemy!!  😮

Secret Door Ep 3: One Man’s Poison is Another Man’s…

People say I’m ruthless. I am not ruthless.
And if I find the man who is calling me ruthless,
I shall destroy him

Prince LS reads out in disbelief the outcome of HB’s autopsy: Suicide? Even the most straight-forward of men, Chief Hong Gye Hee succumbs to group pressure in his road to “justice”. He paints a possible scenario: HB broke hid neck as he fell head-first into the well. The witnesses who “assisted” in his investigation mentions HB being drunk and did say he was going to Ehlong (King GyeongJong’s tomb). Really now?


Even Minister MS is surprised with the Chief’s report. The Chief has taken a few steps in to the Dark side.
Prince LS’ eunuch announces there is an urgent *Jungyoo for him… (*Order from the King)
