finished watching SKKS and now watching My Girlfriend is GUmiho
Watching Marry Me, Mary (previously Mary Stayed Out All Night) and I like this fluffy, cotton candy romcom.
Also will be taking a peek at Secret Garden today, Ha Ji Won is always my preferred K-actress.
I have sort of been watching this for the last month.
Choongnyeong is exiled and attempts are being made to bring him back. I tell you, he is such a boring character so far. The crown prince, the mother, the father and others are so interesting. Great acting so far. The actor must be 40 and he is supposed to a young boy.... Oh alright I have good imagination. But somehow delivering a good character without being boring is not happening here. Hope it gets better soon.
Can I have some spoilers? The beggar girl turned maid is going to be his concubine, when does that happen? He is so lovey dovey with his wife. Is she going to be the manipulative misshil? I saw a king Sejong in the Queen Song Deuk thread.
following "Marry Me, Mery" every week and now watching Family's Honor.
EDIT - I don't think Hyun Bin has gotten much thinner. I think it's his hairstyle that shapes his face, but other than that I think he's always been a slim looking guy. I think his English speaking skills has gotten a better since his My Lovely Sam Soon days. I love the OST in Secret Garden. So far all the songs and music played in the background has been appealing to my ears. Oska is a funny guy too. I can't believe that actor knows hows to sing, I wonder if he sung for this drama for real or was he lipsyncing. It's just that his profile says he's a singer and actor too. The more I watch the interaction between Joo Won and Ra Im, the more I see Mr. Darcy and Eliza Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. Joo Won is acting like a totally mad stalker taking pictures of Ra Im's pictures. Hahaha...totally falling for her.
I love Mary Stayed Out All Night too. It has a great cast too. I'm glad Mae Ri is not like Go Mi Nyu/Nam in You're beautiful. I think I like her better than Go Mi Nam. She's a innocent girl and inexperience in love, but she's still a brave and courageous girl who deals with things independently. She's not afraid of speaking up for herself or standing up to Kim Jae Wook's father in the drama. That's why I like her better than Go Mi Nam. Jang Geun Suk and Kim Jae Wook, what more can I ask for in a drama. Moon Geun Young is a good actress too. I like the actor who plays Mae Ri's dad. Haha he's always funny when he's on screen. I love the Karaoke scene where he follows them two to the Karaoke place and says JGS is a chick magnet when he's singing. Hahaha love it!
These two dramas keep me up at night and waiting for the next episodes. So good!

I love the OST for Secret Garden. Best of all, Baek Ji Young's That Woman/Man songs.
I really should stop plonking in front of the TV and watch whatever comes. When I start watching some show, I just have to know the ending. So that's why I am watching Legend of the King. Not the BYJ (expensive drama) but one with a very plain looking main prince, with a bad hairdo.... aiiiyaa couldn't they get a younger, less plain guy?
Maybe it's the writer's fault --- this guy played the filial son to the hilt that I was rooting for the bad brothers. Regardless of what his father did, he was so obedient and completely clueless. Even when his mother was framed, he could not see or refused to see that other horrible things would be concocted by his stepmother and stepbrothers, and should do something. But no. His attempts to act stoic..or maybe strong and silent. oh man
With apologies to those who like this show.
@bella25: I haven't the slightest clue which drama this is. Legend of the King? I dunno.
Dream High (don't judge me! )
I'm missing Secret Garden already. My Princess is coming out so lukewarmy, not as engaging and exciting to watch, but there's eyecandy, so I guess I'll bear with it. The plot and storyline needs to spice up.
I'm currently slowly watching Creating Destiny, which is so super slow paced. I wish the pace would just pick up, there's just too many nonsensical scenes and dialog. It would be more interesting if it didn't drag so much, it should be only 16 eps not 30. It's the typical forcered marriage/hate, then love relationship storyline. I'm gonna just continue it now that I've already started it. I don't really like the scenes where Eugene speaks in English. Her English is fluent but for some reason her acting isn't very natural when she speaks in English.
To compare Secret Garden and My Princess, Secret Garden was funnier and had lots of things happening in each episode. My Princess doesn't have a solid storyline nor does it have well established characters that are real (as I've seen so far). It has some funny moments but it comes from characters acting silly and sometimes the silliness seems out of character. I've seen 6 episodes so far, and everything seems to be presented for fan service rather than producing a solid and strong story.
