김종욱 찾기 (Finding Mr. Destiny)

I have a confession to make, and that’s that I never really liked “Coffee Prince” as much as everyone else in the Kdrama world did. It was alright but I wasn’t a huge Gong Yoo fan and I’m definitely not a Yoon Eun-hye fan, so I watched it just to find out what was the big deal. Yes Gong Yoo is hot, but I never really got it. Til now.

Finding Mr. Destiny is the cutest movie I’ve seen in a while. Beautifully shot and edited, great soundtrack, and enough intensity from the two leads that makes this movie just a cut above the standard rom-com fare. Watch it if you can, it’s really a visual treat. Oh and dear god, Gong Yoo is hot.

Mr. James Stewart

I went through a black and white movies phase during high school. I’ve obviously gotten out of the phase, but I still think James Stewart is the handsomest man ever.

Double establishment

Won Bin and Moon Geun-young for Basic House.

I would pay to see some kind of screen establishment between Moon Geun-young and Won Bin. My desires to see Won Bin on the silver screen (after watching Ahjusshi) and to see Moon recover from Mary are massive.

49 Days, episodes 1 to 8

I can’t believe how unexpectedly good dramas have been this year thus far. I had no intention of liking 49 Days because I wasn’t the least bit interested in 98% of the cast (Lee Yo-won, Jo Hyun-jae, Nam Gyu-ri, Bae Soo-bin, Seo Hye-jin), but yet here I am. C’est la (k-drama obsessed) vie.

I do have to preface with the disclaimer that even though I feel very positively about the drama so far, only eight episodes have been broadcast. At the moment, I’m tentatively erring on the side of caution, because it’s still relatively early in the game. There is the dangerous possibility of a Cinderella’s Sister redux: smooth sailing for the first half, and then mind-blowing confusion in the second.
