2 weeks ago i finally got my Shinhwa the Greatest Artist 1998-2007 DVD. Here’s the pictures i have taken..

…also listening and addicted to Minwoo’s 4th jib: M Rizing. As i expected… the theme of the songs are different from his previous albums.. i admit, among the 6 members of Shinhwa, Minwoo’s the most talented in my opnion. He’s got a great voice, good at writing/composing songs, and he dances good. The others are talented as well in their own respective ways but it’s just Minwoo for me even though Junjin’s my favorite, LOL. ^^,

Here’s the latest MV of Minwoo: Don’t Trust Men

Here’s a picture of my Shinhwa 9th Album Special Limited Edition. ^^ Still wasn’t able to get my copy of their 9th Jib White Edition (Repackaged Limited Edition). Hopefully i can get it next week.

As for the dramas i’m watching….

East of Eden

I have seen episodes 1-5 as those were the only episodes with english subtitles at the moment. I would not watch this drama if not for the many stars i like: Park Hae Jin, Lee Da Hae, Han Ji Hye, Yoon Jung Hoon minus Song Seung Hoon, lol! not much of a Song Seung Hoon but i don’t really hate him… ^^ The drama’s a mixture of revenge, family and complicated love story… very interesting but a very long one…

Wed/Thurs Drama:

Eric Moon – Koo Hye-seon, Lovers in “Strongest Chil-woo”

Posted in Entertainment News, Shinhwa with tags , , on April 28, 2008 by koala41

Koo Hye-seon, who was in “the King and I”, will be acting once more in a historical drama.

She was cast as So-yoon in “Strongest Chil-woo”, set to come out in June, and will be lovers with Eric Moon.

Kang Chil-woo is one who punishes lawbreakers for the king by day, but at night, he changes into a killer who punishes the acts of evil. Jeon No-min will also star as one of the killers.

Koo Hye-seon used to be a daughter of a noble but is sent somewhere as a workwoman. When she comes back, she becomes a servant. She is Chil-woo’s (Eric Moon) first love and only lover.

A representative of Koo Hye-seon said, “It’s another historical drama after “The King and I” but it’s a different feeling from that”.

The production company Olive 9 said, “Koo Hye-seon acted very well in “the King and I”, and she is once again the female lead. She also pushed back her plans for studying language and is showing passion by being a part of this”.

Lee Jun Ki vs Eric: Who will be the Ancient King summer 2008?

Posted in Entertainment News, Lee Jun Ki, Shinhwa with tags , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2008 by koala41


After a long period of time, MBC seems to be dominating the ancient genre with several huge dramas, such as Joo Mong, Legend, and Lee San. Summer 2008, viewers will be watching the competition between drama Iljimae (SBS) and Choi Kang Chil Woo (KBS2).

Let’s take a look at Iljimae of SBS first. This drama will be aired in May, after the completion of On Air. Because it’s the second ancient drama that Lee Jun Ki will perform, he doesn’t have much pressure on him.

Lee Jun Ki said that first thing that attracted him from this drama was the special image of main character who hides all his face but only his eyes. Moreover, Jun Ki felt that the drama is very meaningful because throughout the protest against feudal regime and class discrimination, the drama satirizes modern society’s bad side. Thus, he respects the drama and will try his best.

Lee Jun Ki’s determination and hard-work ethics are admired by many people at the filming site. Many dangerous scenes such as dropped into the water by the enemy or flying back and forth, he did them all by himself without the help of a stunt man.

Next, drama Choi Kang Chil Woo will be aired starting from June 9. This is the first ancient drama of Eric. It is said that appearing as an ancient character puts a great deal of pressure on Eric. However, Eric is fascinated by the character he plays as a normal citizen during daytime but a skilful assassin when the night comes. After thinking thoroughly, Eric decided to take place in this drama before carrying out his military duty.

The first half of 2008, Korean small screen is dominated by ancient drama Lee San of MBC. Therefore, the appearance of Iljimae and Choi Kang Chil Woo bring more opportunities for SBS and KBS to prosper in ancient genre this summer.

Currently, drama On Air has quite high ratings. As a drama aired right after that, Iljimae will benefit a lot. Although Iljimae will be showing against Spotlight (MBC) with two stars Ji Jin Hee and Son Ye Jin, it’s believed that Iljimae has more advantage because of Lee Jun Ki’s appearance and its interesting plot.

About Choi Kang Chil Woo, it is the hope of KBS in mini-series drama to raise the ratings of shows aired on Monday and Tuesday nights. Thus, KBS will invest greatly in Choi Kang Chil Woo in order to create a good drama and take back its lost position in mini-series drama on Mon-Tue.

The news of two handsome and popular actors in two different ancient dramas rise curiosity in viewers and make them want to see how the two actors will perform.

>>>Looks like there will be a tight battle of ratings for Junki & Eric’s historical drama… I’m anticipating both… can’t believe i’m so much into historical dramas lately because of the actors in it… hahaha it all started with Kang Ji Hwan’s Hong Gil Dong then Bae Yong Jun’s Legend, both are great and amazing historical dramas but i don’t like their ending.

>>> It also seems that i won’t be able to start downloading old dramas i’m planning to because of the upcoming dramas (Saraghae, Iljimae, Choi Kang Chil Woo, Spotlight, 1 Mom 3 Dads). ^^

Eric will appear in an ancient drama of KBS2 in June

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on March 31, 2008 by koala41


My thoughts: can’t wait for his last drama before he leaves for military… 

Singer and actor Eric has decided his final work before joining in the army

He will appear in an ancient drama of KBS2 channel named Choi Kang Chil Woo (temporary). Eric will play main male character Kang Chil Woo.

Choi Kang Chil Woo is the second mini-series ancient drama of KBS in 2008 after Hong Gil Dong. Character Kang Chil Woo played by Eric is a lowest rank mandarin who works in the Criminal Court (is the place where interrogate criminals). In daytime, he’s a normal person who has nothing special, not smart, and also can’t do anything.

But in nighttime, Kang Chil Woo becomes to the strongest assassin who is specialize in annihilate the rascals, to liberate the justice spirit. Eric will be experienced with a character has two different faces.

The drama uses background of Criminal Court (equivalent as present police office) with the imposing action scenes.

This will be the final work of Eric before he enlists. His management company Topclass said “Eric feels that he himself is not suitable with ancient dramas, but the script is really interesting. Therefore, he decided to act this drama. He has relaxed for a year, now his health has already recovered. When the drama is finished in mid-August, Eric will go to do military service in September.

Choi Kang Chil Woo will be aired from June 9 on every Monday and Tuesday evening after Powerful Enemy (played by Chae Rim)
