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.

Nothing happens in the scene, but the music that’s used is mesmerizing. I have no idea what kind of genre the piece even is — ambiance? — but I feel submerged in calm. It goes perfectly with the idea of driving at night in a well-lit city.

Portrait of a Beauty

Most beautifully shot period piece I’ve ever watched. I don’t think ‘visual orgasm’ is enough to properly describe it all.
