Hi Samsooki!

Looking forward to your next thought-provoking post!

Well, lessee.

I tweeted recently about this actress that I like, Yoon Eun Hye, and how her performance in Coffee Prince was really good.

Coincidentally, my twitter account recommended to me that I follow YEH. And I was all like, "so Twitter recommends that I follow YEH. But would Twitter recommend to YEH that she follow samsooki???"

Of course, that's all vanity, cuz YEH is YEH and samsooki is, well, samsooki. As Jenny said on Best Love / Greatest Love, "she's on this level" (waving her hand up high) "and you're on this level" (waving her hand down low). LOL!

Anyhoo, then another person, I won't say who, tweeted YEH directly and told her what I said but paraphrased it to 140 characters, and, in Korean, she made me sound like a stalker. LOL. So THEN I had to tweet YEH myself, telling her that the original person was the queen of lunatics so please don't pay her any mind. Dude, it's TOUGH writing Korean on a blackberry.

So that was my week. Not sure if that was thought-provoking, but it sure was interesting. :)

Yeah, like, she's 2 parts awesome and 1 part cool.

That makes her like awesome awesome cool, or something like that.

Thanks for sharing that, samsooki.

It reminded me of the post here in DB about the twitter wars between Eric and his character in MW The Spy, Kang Woo. So funny!

In your case, if YEH would only know that you are a legend yourself around these parts :-) then she would realize that in other aspects "you are this level and she is just down there" :-)

And since Twitter is not socially-discriminating then Im sure it has already suggested to YEH to follow you, samsooki. :-) When she does follow you on Twitter, let us know the inside scoop (much as we would want to follow her, the language barrier would make it difficult....plus Im not very active on twitter so that makes it next to impossible, haha)

After a very ordinary end to the work week - oh hell who am I kidding it was utter extraordinary $@&! week - came to DB for my daily dose of crack (FYI my flavour of the moment - LMH City hunter crack. Yum yum.) Not only do I find the awesomeness that is javabeans/girlfridays City Hunter finale recap I stumble upon the OT for the first time in ages to help with LMH withdrawal and what do I see as comment 1.

Samsooki!

OMG Samsooki has been found? *rubs eyes* *waves*

[Dear Santa
Is this another present? You have already been so so generous in gifting a whole bunch of AWESOME May/June - so much so I think people mistake my eyebags for new eyewear....
I mean May was:
Kang Jihwan (I know I know JB still has first dibs..but thinking she may now have to fight YEH as well as the usual Kang Ji MINE!s)
AND
Cha Seung Won (who as awesome as he was as Dokko Jin sorry he will always be Shin Min Rae's Jo Gook to me!)
AND
CSW/Jo Gook's assistant from City Hall (aka Lee Jung Hyuk as Mr Noble *sob sob*) turning on the hot and noble working against/with the City Hunter
AND
Lee Min Hot..I mean Ho? Have I been THAT good?

yep I, bspanda, must have been good in those few minutes spare where I was not watching kdramas recently! I will hold up my end of the bargain if you keep it coming! Sheesh who needs sleep....Keep it coming I love you!]

A million posts/dramas since i've posted in OT - but still fully paid up member of the Dramabeans fan club!

Greetings and hugs to my fellow DBers from the BoF (aka Lee Min Ho Round 1)/City Hall/O-P-W discussion period). Shout out to ockoala (omg I love yr playground! it's my other crack den esp TW variety, OMG yr recaps of Drunken to Love you are the bomb!!), cingdoc, langdon813, hjkomo, samsooki, of course Javabeans and many many more (you know who you are!)

This site has only grown more awesome...as if anyone reading this did not know.

Now can anyone tell me the cure for LeeMinHo withdrawal? The chq will be in the mail! Hmm better still.....

Dear Santa can I have Lee Min Ho for my next present? Ta

You're so funny.

Lee Min Ho was the main dude in BOF right?

And... this current craze is because he's in some drama called City something or other? City Hunter, is it?

Does Lee Min Ho hunt for cities? So, by the end of the drama, did Lee Min Ho find the city he was hunting for?

Lol! I also going through Lee Minho withdrawal....
Now.... How did I live life before City Hunter.....? I've forgotten.... :(

hi samsooki... i'm kinda frequent on twitter and usually when i accept the request of the person who added me, it also showed a button for me to add that person. mine is under the secure mode so others have to request but even if not, it will actually show up... twitter isn't discriminating in any way...

hope YEH follows your tweets too :)

Happy OT everyone!

Samsooki,

Ya know, sometimes it's tough when dealing with the repercussions or other people's actions. (i.e. The person who tweeted their interpretation of your tweet.)

It (your story) is interesting because I really wonder if YEH has time to read all the Twitter messages she receives. Like, does she pay an employee to review all the Tweets? If she does, did you create a stalker file on Samsooki? Is she really tech-savvy? Twitter... What does it all mean anyway?

There, just some of the thoughts your story elicited.

You know your presence last week on OT was an awesome surprise. It was such a surprise my mind started working overtime wondering if you were going to recap Kim Sun-ah's new drama that, coincidentally, also aired it's first episode last week Saturday. Alas, no recap (although I'm loving jb and girlfriday's recaps), but I'm just saying it wouldn't have been much of a surprise if you did return to recap another Kim Sun-ah drama. Good to see you're joining us on Fridays.... If you're "not stalking" YEH, have you been frequenting KS's Twitter (if she has one)? XD

Hi samsooki! Good to see you! I miss your writing since Chuno. Have you looked into Warrior Baek Dong Soo? I'd really like to know what you think about it. I really enjoyed the details you've put into Chuno, so it would be nice if you could do a bit of it about WBDS. Up to ep 8 now & I'm really enjoying the three young men with different adorable characters. The veteran actors talents add bonus to the drama.
Have a good wkend!

Where are the You've Fallen For Me recaps for ep. 8 and 9? I've shaking in the corner, going through withdrawal...

0
25
reply

Required fields are marked *

How is "You've Fallen For Me"? I've stayed away from reading recaps of dramas I've not seen yet.

I know I used to get withdrawal symptoms when watching certain dramas... I'd get antsy and all wishy for the next episode. All I would want is a time machine to zoom me a week into the future so that I could watch the next two freaking episodes, and nothing else (no peeking at future winning lottery numbers or stock market picks).

Still, that never happened. My future self didn't come back into the past to give me a time machine so that I could go watch all the episodes of a current drama. I can only surmise that my future self has information that would be vital to survival of the human race, which information would be compromised if I went backwards in time, so that's why I don't currently have a time machine. Butterfly effect, and all that.

Oh, I went off on a tangent. Hehe! The other thing, it's kinda bad form to ask when recaps will come. They'll come when they come, and asking for them won't make them come any faster, but might raise the ire of those that do the recaps.... just a friendly piece of advice. :D

Thanks for the advice! ^^ I know it's bad etiquette to be asking for recaps. Most of the times I'm amazed by the speed of the recaps and the detailed nature of them. Girlfriday and Javabean are the best--sorry if I messed up your names!!

This is the first time I followed a Kdrama from week to week. I don't think I'd want to do this again. Too much anticipation.

As for You've Fallen For Me, I have a love/hate relationship with it, but that doesn't make me not want to watch it. It's definitely flawed and some people complain about the slow pace, but it's soooooooooooooooooooo good to see PSH and JYH together as leads.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

yup, i agree about it being kind of bad form. and you would know, huh? SAMSOOKI,we miss your recaps! i know i can't be the only one!!!

also, regarding yffm-- may i? it's actually going much better than i expected, or at least, i'm liking it (WAY) better than i thought i would. i think it's because the drama embraces the lightness of its premise,instead of squeezing in aspects that may add *gravitas*, but totally would NOT fit in. so..props to them for that. :) if you're feeling light, fluffy and a little craving for some old school romanticism, stolen glances, googly lovey eyes and smiles that scream, "my god, i love you, your eyes are like stars, i wanna have your babies, my GOD!", then i say give yffm a shot. :)

Pick a name, pick a name! I can't keep up.

Half of you are talking about Heartstrings, and the other half talking about YFFM, and they are one and the same, right?

0

Samsooki,

Yes, YFFM and Heartstrings are one and the same. Blame the Korean network or powers that be for creating an additional English title (Heartstrings) via a Dramafever contest.

0

haha, yes, they are one and the same.blame the romanization and the english "translation" LOL. and while i wouldn't call it GOOD just yet, (so close to the ending of city hunter, which actually deserves the adjective in a superlative)i would venture to say it actually is good enough-- it holds itself up quite nicely, it has great music, it sticks with familiar ideas and comforting images of what young love is and it never pretends to be something it's not. make of that what you will :P

I posted a response, but the system ate it. Which means there was probably something the DB system didn't like in it. I'm gonna wait to see if it just shows up after review. If not, I can put it in another way that the DB system won't freak when it goes through.

Kyu Won: It's a shame that it rained. We didn't get to the beach to look at the sea. I wanted to sit on the beach at night and if I saw a shooting star, make a wish.

Shin: What would you wish for?

Kyu Won: It's a secret. If there's another falling star, I'd make another wish.

Shin: I should make a wish too.

Kyu Won: What is your wish?

Shin: It's a secret.

Kyu Won: Hey, you copied me!

Shin: Want to hear my wish? I hope you will like me again.

It's okay. At least I was happy for like, 10 seconds. HAHAHA!
But those words, for me, are actually more heart-thump-inducing than just 'I like you'. We would've had this same conversation if Kyu Won didn't get all mad at first. And it's actually silly how the first line of the Episode is exactly its last line, too. Hee.

Well i beg to differ. It's similar but not quite the same. In episode 8 he said "don't stop liking me" meaning that he's confident that she still likes him, which can be misunderstood as being narcissistic, while in episode 9 he said "you know what my wish is? for you to start liking me again", not assuming that she still has feelings for him.

I just hope he does better this time when she starts questioning him, not like in episode 8 :D

Wow episode 8 and 9 was just full of cute moments between the two... LS singing "Lucky" by Jason Mrazto KW, and to the last part of episode 9. I gotta admit i was fangirling to my heart's content watching the two episodes (mostly episode 9) .<

Required fields are marked *

There's no more reply button in your reply above this comment so I'll just use the reply button here. HAHA.

Well, now that I've seen Episode 9 fully, Shin wasn't actually being narcissistic when he said "Don't stop liking me" in Episode 8. He just wasn't fully ready to admit his feelings as Kyu Won directly asked him if he liked her but when he was already ready (lol) to defend and clear up the misunderstanding, Kyu Won's temper dominated depriving him the chance of explaining. I understood this during Episode 9, when Shin insisted on sitting on the mat Kyu Won was sitting on, he said "I think you're the one who's slow. You can't comprehend sentences very well." Kyu Won, just proves him right, and just asks him what he was talking about. Just a theory, though. But it does make sense, right?

Since the Episode 9 giddiness is still in me, I'll just include the thought that's running in my mind. I think Kyu Won and Shin will go home from this trip AS LOVERS already... if drama won't be cruel and have someone interrupt that beautiful moment again, that is.

ONE LAST THING, I have this strange feeling that Seok Hyun kinda likes Kyu Won. It sounds silly, I know, but the drama emphasizes his annoyed, or rather dissatisfied, reaction whenever Yoon Su would tell him that Shin likes Kyu Won. I hope it doesn't happen. I did hope for them to have a love line before but I totally like Yoon Su now, seeing how bright a sunshine she has become, and my heart would actually break if Seok Hyun develops feelings for Kyu Won. No, drama, no.

I am looking to recruit volunteers who currently live outside of Asia to answer a few questions about why they love Korean dramas and how they came to them in the first place. Participation is entirely voluntary and will mean responding to emailed questions over an agreed week in August (i.e. 7 days maximum). You are guaranteed absolute anonymity if you choose to take part.

Full details will be available on the Participant Information Sheet which you will be sent to all interviewees before the interview begins. If you would like to participate, please email me for more information and a consent form. My email address is: [email protected]
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kayleigh Lovell

PS – Many thanks to all of you who have gotten in touch already and for the fantastic interviews!

Anyway best of luck on your research! Do share the link with us when you're done... we'd love a generalized viewpoint on what makes us tick. :)

Happy Friday everyone!!!
I'm about to watch CH 20... I know there are mixed feelings about it.
Hopefuly now that is over YFFM will have better rating, particularly now that the story is all about Shin and Kyu-won.
But what it makes me sad is that I Need Romance will end next week. I think is the show I like the most lately.

went to spanish theme park 'port aventura' this week and when i was queing for a ride i saw 'big bang k-pop xx' scribbled onone of the rails, lol, and i got well excited in seeing it ;)

on a drama-related note, am addicted to both myung wol and warrior baek dong su. can't wait to see myung wol's reaction in next ep! and first time seeing eric in a drama, and he's so loveable! (even if his character is an ass!)

last time I went to port aventura was 10 years ago :)

I'm not sure what it is going to happen con WBDS since Yoo Seung Ho had a car acciedent yesterday and factured his chick bone.
On the other side, my concern with Myung-wol is, she should kick Kang Woos ass and leave, but her life and her comrades life depends on her marring him. We will have to wait till monday to see what happens

Actually, it was reported at Soompi that he as a serious skull fracture.
He's such a beautiful child - this is awful. :(

Happy Friday, everyone! It was just reported on our local YTN newscast that Seungho-ssi is not as severely injured as first reported. In fact, after being released from the ER, he wanted to return to the WDBS set ASAP! What a trouper!!

The orbital bone around one of his eyes was fractured, so he's going to be wearing a face cast for the next 4 weeks until it heals. The other option was surgery, but after consulting with the surgeons and his mother (I keep forgetting that this cutie pie is still only 17 years old!!!), he opted for the cast instead. A stunt double will be used for the action scenes, allowing YSH to continue with the drama scenes when shooting resumes middle of next week.

The more serious problem is his stylist is in 'critical' condition in the ICU with more severe injuries. Regardless, my prayers and thoughts go out to everyone affected by this accident... and remember to wear your seatbelts!!

Anyway, I'm still reeling from the City Hunter finale. I think I'll go watch it again... :-)

Thanks for the update! I feel bad about his stylist :( Very sad news. I hope s/he will pull through and that their family has support to help them handle it.

This is bad news! I hope its not too serious & he gets better soon. I'm so so in love with their (Dong soo , Yun & Rip) adorable characters. I'm really enjoying WBDS. Yoo Seung Ho, please, get well soon.

I'm waiting to read dramabeans recaps too. More the merrier.

And how awesome was City Hunter this week! I can't believe it's over! :-(

I see bunny has already initiated you to the OT, but once again, welcome! This is the place we wax eloquent about the k-ent scene, wait for tinpra's recent updates about Hot Asian Guy, and generally spend waaaay too much time than is actually allowed by our places of work/university/sleep patterns. :)

Open Letter to Myung Wol

Myung Wol dear,
Let's be clear,
Ryu is way better for you.

He's super hot,
Doesn't pout,
Nor does he slap women about.

If I were you,
I'd run to Ryu,
And forget all about that a$$ Kang Woo.

I have never truly succumbed to second lead syndrome until Ryu. I like Kang Woo, but I LOVE Ryu. Ryu makes ME feel feelings, how could Myung Wol be unaffected?

Ryu = way more interesting than Kang Woo.
Cool, albeit slightly un-adapted to the real world... and hot without trying.

I love Ryu! The only parts in Spy Myung Wol that I replay are:

1. the Ryu scenes (in episode 5, when MW was practicing her protect-and-hug tactic on Ryu-- how does she not notice how hot and chiseled he feels?)
2. any scene where I can get a good look at MW's shoes.
and
3. fight scenes.

I like Eric, but KW isn't really all that interesting, except for the part where I wonder if he's got military/spy training.

I've only watched 4 episodes, and so far Ryu > everything else. It's funny how watching Spy MW is like watching BL or SG for me, where the only thing I like and care about is the second male-lead.

Love the pome!

I am not sure if I totally agree.

We have to ask the question:
Other than hotness, that they both share, which of the boys' character traits would help MW grow the most?
Which boy complements MW the best, and which one can bring out the best in her?
Which boy can MW help grow the most? Which one needs her the most?

I don't know the answer at this point, either.

I do wonder, all this time that Ryu has known her, was he there to help? It seems like he may have been, behind the scenes. Maybe he didn't want her to pass the test because he wanted to protect her?
If yes, I don't like him for her for that. She can take care of herself.

Then we have to throw in, what is MW looking for in a boy? Someone like her father? Does she want someone who can pull her out of the straight-jacketed life she is in or is she just fine, thank you, like that?

Wow! Now I have to go think about this...

PS ERIC IS SO HOT I CAN'T STAND IT!

Has our KDrama video-maker extraordinaire considered making one for YFFM? I have a song for it, too! ;)

The breezy beats of Colbie Caillat's 'Fallin' For You', or like in this week's episode, Jason Mraz's (feat. CC) 'Lucky'.

Also...

I LOVE YOU TOO, RYU!!

Why you so hot?!

Hi Schmazel!
Hope you are well today.

The whole show is a music video! They don't need me!

Maybe I will do one for SMW, with slow mos of Eric and fast mos of Eric, and reguluar mo's of Eric.
Eric clothed.
Eric not.
Eric freezing.
Eric hot.

I wouldn't need any of the other characters...maybe some Ryu, actually.

City Hunter.. what can I say about this truly amazing show? It sucked me in from episode 1 and left me in tears at episode 20. I laughed, I cringed, I groaned and I cried for the show, I raced home after uni to download the latest episode, I hit refresh 60 times a minute on Dramabeans to see if the recaps are up. I started watching the drama live, without knowing a single word of Korean besides “oppa” and “unni”, yet there I was at 11pm on Wednesday and Thursday nights watching the show and simultaneously refreshing Soompi, hoping that someone that actually knew Korean was translating. It has honestly been a while since a drama has been this addictive and captivating for me.

My thoughts on the ending:
The drama as a whole was memorable, but the final 2 episodes left me a blubbering mess. I cried so hard when the prosectutor died.. sure I found him annoying at times, always appearing at the worst time possible, but hot damn, his final speech, hit something so deep inside me, not the part where he asked for his father’s forgiveness, but the moment when, bloodied and beaten, he drags himself up and states ChaeMan’s crimes and sentences him to 22 years. He lived so righteously and died a hero and inspiration in my heart, if only one day I could be that passionate as a lawyer.
*tiny side note.. SeeHee’s acting was a tad unbelievable for me, but it was passable in the moment, but it didn’t go unnoticed.

The ending of all endings... FRACK! My GOD! The drama was pure genius! They lured me into a sense of security because thus far NO ONE had been killed then BAM the prosecutor gets beaten to death and Yoon Sung puts a gun to his head and slowly pulls the trigger. I think I now have a heart condition as well as the puffy eyes. Jin Pyo’s last act was to protect his son and it killed me inside knowing that he finally showed that he cared!
Our OTP.. I knew they were either going to not be together (one or both being dead) OR it was going to be an opening ending, so I was just happy that they were happy to see each other. Nothing needs to be said between them to convey what they are thinking, everything they’ve been through is a testament to their secure and locked future.. UNLESS there is a SEASON 2 (but i would prefer it if City Hunter remained a one-off, staying pristine and perfect in my mind forever)

THANK YOU JAVABEANS AND GIRLFRIEND FOR TAKING THIS HIT OF CRACK WITH US. City Hunter really was “exactly my brand of heroin”

I would definitely like a season 2 of City Hunter.... IF (with capital letters because it's a big "if") they have a script as strong as in the first season.
Maybe with a slightly different tone (funnier, darker, whatever), and with some new characters. My only request: do not recast Yoon-sung or the president.

Thanks, Linda. Apparently, we must have been separated at birth. You've said pretty much what's been rolling around in my brain since yesterday. It's a rarity when I can't bring myself to comment on a drama - the only other time I suffered from PTSKDS (Post Traumatic Shock Kdrama Syndrome) was at the end of "Stairway To Heaven". These gut-wrenching endings take a toll. I accept the fact that I'm one of those people who cry at parades, any heroic, military-type music, and watching any race that Secretariat ran (don't ask - I totally blubber watching Big Red demolish his competition)!

City Hunter pushed all those buttons for me. Big time.

PTSKDS -- love it! here's encouragement from a fellow CH-PTSDSer: let's face the LMH/CH withdrawal bravely together :D

...but seriously, I am at a total loss now...for weeks I looked forward to Wed/Thurs because of City Hunter, and now I can't find anything else to direct that focus onto anymore...gaaah! if only we knew what LMH's next project is, like we know PMY's next drama :/
