Lee Da Hee NOT Lee Da Hae in Big Man

Lee Da Hee is Cast in Big Man with Kang Ji Hwan and Choi Daniel

Actress Lee Da-hee is starring in the new KBS 2TV drama "Big Man". However her agency claims she hasn't made any sure decisions yet.

Park Jin-hee in MBC "Triangle - Drama" as profiler with Lee Beom Soo (Mini-Giant Reunion?)

Park Jin-hee Returns to Drama in MBC "Triangle - Drama"

Actress Park Jin-hee is starring in the MBC drama "Triangle - Drama". Her role of the profiler is a connection to Jang Dong-soo, the first detective of the three brothers acted out by Lee Beom-soo. She was specially employed by the police department. As important as any male in the drama, Park Jin-hee has many ties with the staff on this drama.

"Triangle - Drama" is written by Choi Wan-gyoo from last year's MBC drama "Guam Heo Jun" and produced by Yoo Yong-cheol. This is also the first reunion with Lee Beom-soo since the SBS drama "Giant" 4 years ago. It also appears that the writer has a unique affection for Park Jin-hee.

"Triangle - Drama" is about three brothers who get parted young and meet again as grown-ups. Lee Beom-soo and Si Wan are the eldest and youngest of the brothers and Song Seung-heon is a likely candidate for the second.

My Thoughts: I'm a big fan of Park Jin-hee so this will be my 4 or 5th drama that I've watched of hers. Of course Choi Wan-gyoo already has me as a fan from GuAm Heo Jun last year, my 2nd ever daily drama (thanks Hulu)! Add to this, Lee Beom Soo (does the man ever rest), I am definitely adding this to my Plan to Watch list! How about you?

Funeral of Kuchon, In Animated Gifs-King's Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang

First Animated Gifs Honoring Kuchon's Funeral Scene from King's Daughter, Soo Baek Hyang, episode 89
The cleansing of her father in preparation for burial

Knowing that he is at peace and with her mother

Showing him how he is her only father

Letting him know that he will always be with you
This is the most beautiful (and sorrowful) funeral scene that I've ever encountered in a drama! I think I cried from beginning to end. Seo Hyun Jin managed to captivate and pull us deep into her sorrow as she mourned the passing of her father, Kuchon. I think this scene will remain with me for a long, long time! This scene truly sent her up my list of favorite actresses! Her acting has been impeccable in this drama. A drama sadly ignored by the viewers as well as the industry! I look forward to seeing her in more roles like this. Evil she does very well, this was my first experience seeing her in something else. She has managed to awe and amaze me!!

I've said it once and I will say it again: If you are NOT watching this drama; you must!

Drama News: You're Surrounded

Lee Seung-gi and Cha Seung-won to star in "You're Surrounded"

Source: News.Nate and Hancinema
Actor Cha Seung-won and Lee Seung-gi are starring in the new SBS drama "You're Surrounded".
Contracts are being signed and first meet-ups are being settled by this week.

Cha Seung-won is coming back with a drama for the first time in 3 years since the 2011 MBC drama "The Greatest Love". Lee Seung-gi starred in the MBC drama "Gu Family Book" last year. The female star is likely to be Park Min-yeong.

"You're Surrounded" is a 20-part romance drama about four rookie detectives running for their dream and becoming righteous keepers of the law. It is written by Lee Jeong-seon from the KBS drama "Ojak Brothers" and produced by Yoo In-sik from "Salaryman".

My Thoughts: Well it is definitely the male cast that will have me running to watch this drama weekly. Unlike everyone else, Gu Family Book just didn't click with me but King 2Hearts left me well satisfied. And Cha Seung-won, with all of his family issues, hasn't been on the screen in awhile so I can only be happy to see him return again! Again. no thoughts on Park Min-Yeong, I'm just not a fan. But with the writer from Ojakgyo Brothers also gives me hope!

Japanese Drama Review for 2013-The Ones You May Not Have Heard Of

       Japanese Drama 
        2013 Year in Review    
           Romance, Drama, Comedy

Late but not forgotten! I love Japanese dramas! I feel in some genres like Medical, Suspense, Crime, Psychological, and Thriller, the Japanese excel. Let me take it one step further, only the Japanese can get me to watch High School dramas! Even I can’t watch the Korean ones! Though I love the Japanese dramas, I find them hard to find with English subs or on websites that I can comfortably watch. So, from year to year, I don’t get to watch as many as I want “I miss Dramacrazy TEARS”! Here are a few that I was able to watch and I enjoyed.
