Coffee Prince and Goong Now in Latin America

Reading this piece of news makes me glad. Finally, Latin America will also have a taste of Korean drama especially these two dramas where YEH was the lead actress. Actually, these two dramas were one of the best I have watched so far of YEH's. Her sweet character in Goong and her double personality in Coffee Prince  left a lasting impression on me. She was a good actress, there was no doubt. I became a fan after watching Coffee Prince.

According to MBC, the series Goong started airing on SERTV in Panama on July 30. The series Coffee Prince will start airing in Paraguay on September 15 and Goong will also air in January next yea

MBC has been airing thirteen Korean TV series, including historical series Daejanggum and Damo, and modern series Queen of Housewife, My Name is Kim Sam Soon, and The Greatest Love so far. The most popular TV series is Daejanggum, in which actress Lee Young Ae appeared.

Yeo Seung Chul from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Panama said that the series Goong is receiving considerable attention from the local public.

City Conquest Photo Stills - Kim Hyun Joong and Jung Yoo Mi in a Sweet Back Hug

A couple of still photos from City Conquest, [Kim Hyun Joong's new drama] were released in the net showing Hyun Joong holding Yoo Mi in a sweet back hug, a romantic scene that is always visible in every K-drama.

Hmmm..just adding my thoughts, quickly... I hope that as the drama progresses, the on screen chemistry will also develop. For now, I'm still kind of searching for it. But, then, it's still the early part of filming and few photos were shared yet. [just my thoughts]

CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa is currently attracting a lot of attention online with a muscle in his back.
The muscle in Jung’s back can be seen in the video of “Come On,” CN Blue’s third single released in Japan last month.
In the video, Jung is posing to show off a muscle in his back in a black sleeveless shirt. Jung’s firm muscle in his back and arm muscle remind many people of Sylvester Stallone from the movie Rambo. Jung used to appeal to many girls with his gentle image, but it seems like he can also appeal to many people with his strong image.
People responded: “I love the muscle in his back.” “Jung even has a great muscle in his back.” “I want to cling to his back.”
CN Blue released their new song “Friday” on July 31 at midnight.

Starting on a New K-drama...Moon Embracing the Sun episode 1

Today I started watching another periodical drama [fictional] Moon Embracing the Sun. 

The Moon That Embraces the Sun

Just finished episode 1 for now, and although I find it hard to memorize the names, which is understandable, at least I try to remember the three lead characters of the drama. 

Summarizing the story of episode 1, Moon Embracing the Sun is a love story that will involve the three main characters. The two half brothers, one Crowned Prince [dongsaeng]and acknowledged by the King and the other one who is  older [hyung] who unfortunately is not favored and lives like any other noble man but with a good heart and who loves his dongsaeng.

The Crowned Prince is Lee Hyun [Yeo Jin Goo playing the child prince] and the half brother Yang Myung Goon [Lee Min Ho playing the child older brother] will both fell in love with a young miss [agassi] who belongs to a noble family named Heo Yeon Woo who later be called Wol [Kim Yoo Jung plays the child character]. I  remember Kim Yoo Jung as the young Dong Yi, a previous historical drama, too.

In episode 1, a Prince who the villains thought to be a threat to the King's position was plotted and killed, which was [un]fortunately witnessed by a shaman. She was then pursued and while on the run, she met a good hearted woman who is carrying a child then. the shaman had envisioned the child's future and saw that she will be the moon that will play a big part in the lives of the two suns who are the future crowned prince and his half brother. She promised the woman that she would always protect the child [moon] even after she dies.

This shaman had a close friend who was also a shaman, living inside the palace and she told her to find and protect the child. But unfortunately, she was unable to to tell her more.

Years passed and the three main characters were all young adult. Heo Yeon Woo's brother is a friend of Yang Myung Goon. I guess that this friendship will play a part on how Yeon Woo and Myung Goon will become closer.

It is still difficult to remember the names, yet, the story started good. I just can not resist writing something about it after finishing episode 1. Few screen caps only.:))

Kim Hyun Joong is not only a certified Hallyu Star but also the best artist and performer. Kim Hyun Joong recently concluded his Asian Fan Meeting tour in Bangkok, Thailand on 29th of July. This marks the end of his tour around 5 Asian countries and 8 cities.

He toured starting this May from Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Thailand and all his eight fan meetings were sold out.
