There has been news about a sequel for IRIS in the past but no confirmation. Now, the producer of the drama confirmed that they are really doing the sequel which will be airing next year. This is good news for someone like me who had watched the drama and fell in love with it. And thinks that the ending of IRIS was somewhat hanging.

"IRIS" producer confirms sequel. 

KBS’ 2009 hit TV series “IRIS” producer is gearing up to produce the sequel to the drama aiming to hit the airwaves next year.

Taewon Entertainment, the original series’ production company, is in the pre-production stage of the action-packed TV series' second season, a rep from the firm talked to the magazine over the phone Friday.

“We are in the process of renewing and refreshing the original story [for the next season], so we have yet to to talk about the casting. We're aiming to air the show next year, but it has not been settled yet,” the official said briefly.

Industry watchers predict that producer Chung Tae-won will get his hands on the project after wrapping up filming the fifth installment of "Marrying the Mafia" series, a comedy pic due out this year.

"IRIS," which aired back in 2009, stars some of the biggest names in the Korean entertainment industry including Kim Tae-hee, Jung Joon-ho, Kim So-yeon and Big Bang member T.O.P. 

The espionage series dominated the primetime lineup during its run, between October 14 and December 17, with its viewership ratings reaching nearly 40 percent, and later turned into a big screen film, dubbed "IRIS: THE MOVIE" in 2010

To The Beautiful You Screen Caps + mslee's thoughts

Mslee is busy watching k-dramas that are currently airing in Korea. There is Faith by Lee Min Ho and To The Beautiful You, a first drama series from SM Entertainment starring  Shinee's Minho and Seol Ri of f(x).

To the Beautiful You is a  Japanese shōjo manga series, more popularly known as Hana Kimi. The Korean series is the fourth television adaptation of the manga.

 A girl who likes an athlete and pretends to be a man in order to go to the same all boys school and be close to him. At first, I thought, another same story. Like Coffee Prince and You're Beautiful. The two dramas are good but watching another same plot was kinda predictable. But then, it's me, so decided to take a peek. Well, I am not really impressed by the first two episodes. Just an ordinary campus life and the love of this girl to Kang Tae Joon, played by  Choi Minho. They even became roomates!

 Few screen caps only...

Anyway, after watching episodes 3 and 4 this afternoon, I am beginning to like the story. Why? Because compared to Coffee Prince and You're Beautiful where the personality of the girls were only revealed much later, in episode 4, Kim Tae Joon already knew that Goo Jae Hee is a girl, but without her knowledge.

Fast right? Yes. And I think will wait for next week's  episode for more. :))

The sad news was although this drama is star studded, the ratings are declining. Well, let us see if it will go up again now that there are developments in the story. After all who does not love teenage love stories? I do.:))

Moon Embracing The Sun...screen caps update episode 12

Updating my screen caps for Moon Embracing the Sun. I 'm now in episode 12, one of the highlights of the story.  In this episode, the King was being forced to consummate the marriage with the Queen. A little maneuver here and there by the Queen and her father along with the doctors and officials who wanted the King to produce an heir.

King Lee Hwon was confused by the presence of the shaman, and he felt something for her even though he wanted to believe that she was her Crowned Princess. As for Wol, the name given by the King to Eun Woo, she also started to feel something for the King, unknowingly, it was her heart that was remembering the feelings. Prince Yang Myung on the other side was there for Wol and asking her to choose him instead. 

 The story builds up for the four main characters. The greed of Queen Bo Kyung to have  His Majesty all to herself, the confused King  Lee Hwon and  shaman Wol, and the heartbroken Prince Yang Myung.

Will the marriage be finally consummated after 8years ?

the screen caps...

Will Bo Kyung succeed?
