Lee Dong Wook is the Iron Man

iron man korean drama

32-episode long of SBS’ drama Hotel King finished at end of July. And Lee Dong Wook quickly jumps into new drama, this time for KBS2, titled Iron Man.

Lee Dong Wook plays a cold man, with a hurt heart and also has a supernatural power. Perfect casting!

We always think that Lee Dong Wook is a perfect choice to play a cold hurt hearted man.

 

Meanwhile the leading lady is Shin Se Kyung, her character is a caring woman who tries to heal Lee Dong Wook’s wounded heart.

Again , perfect casting. Just look at her face, she’s born with that caring, soft heart face.

 

Filling up the supporting roles are Shin Seung Hwan, Jung Jin and Jung Yoo Geun.

 

Iron Man will replace Joseon Gunman next September and the drama started it’s campaign by releasing its script reading photos.

Jung Yong Hwa gets parody

jung yong hwa

The Three Musketeers brings a hidden side of Jung Yong Hwa.

He played in several modern dramas before this, in which he  looked handsome and cute. And when he finally wears warrior outfit for The Three Musketeers, it seemed that his new appearance mesmerizes a lot of people.

One of them was his early still from the drama, when he rides a horse. That was a great still, he looked cool, handsome and manly.

This new image of him was so powerful , it inspired some people to create parody photos which are spreading and popular on online communities lately. Those parody photos were funny !

And now, the fans will get another treat, as The Three Musketeers released another Jung Yong Hwa’s still. This time, they paraded Jung Yong Hwa’s amazing body, particularly his incredible back muscle.

Will this one get another parody too ?

We’ll see !

Lee Jin Wook : if rating over 5% , through his drawing, he would buy meal for 20 people.

Yang Dong Geun : if rating over 12%, he would go to Mount Baekdu and plant a Jeju orange tree.

Jung Hae In : if rating reaches 5% , he would wear musketeers’ outfit and gives  free hug at Ganghwamun

Seo Hyun Jin : if rating reaches 4.8%, she would go to Gyeongbok Palace with her drama’s outfit and gives free hug

Jang Hyuk and Lee Kwang Soo showed fatherly side

jang hyuk

Jang Hyuk is a father of 2 sons in the real life, so it looks natural to see him skilfully takes care a baby in his current drama’s filming set. People in the filming set said that even the 37-year-old actor played peek-a-boo with the baby during his breaks.

He must  loves babies !

By the way, that baby was present in the set when g.o.d Park Joon Hyung made a cameo to Fated To Love You, that baby was the baby who was took cared by Park Joon Hyung on his reality show g.o.d’s Babysitting Diary.

Meanwhile, Lee Kwang Soo is 29 and still a single. But it doesn’t mean that he has no fatherly feeling. Just looked at several photos from the set of It’s Okay, It’s Love. Looked at how effortlessly easy for him taking care a little boy, he looked so patient and natural doing it.

And the little boy was Gong Hyo Jin’s on screen nephew.

Having a little kid around in the filming set sometimes is refreshing !

This could be the battle of two irresistible good looking men.
Who’s your pick ? Jung Il Woo or TVXQ’s Yunho.
Both wear their Joseon’s outfit.
Jung Il Woo is the prince while Yunho is the genius swordsman.
It’s certainly a tough call ! Ha !

Jung Il Woo and Yunho are the leading actors for upcoming MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama The Night Watchmen.
The drama just released the first still of them.
Jung Il Woo plays Lee Rin, prince who has unique ability in seeing ghost. But, he keeps it as his secret and his character always posing with happy face and entertaining behaviour.
Yunho plays Moo Suk, a talented swordsman. With his handsome face, he’s popular among woman but only his heart only belong to the leading lady Do Ha (played by newcomer Go Sun Hee).

Overall, just like its title, the drama is about a trained squad who patrol in the street every 9 pm to 5 am to catch ghost.
And with love story plus attractive characters, this drama sound promising.

Temptation press conference event

t9

Temptation held its press conference event on July 10 and we loved how the main cast dressed for the session.
Leading couple Kwon Sang Woo and Choi Ji Woo opted for a black ensemble while second couple Lee Jung Jin and Park Ha Sun went for a lighter vibe with pastel colour.

It also a relaxed press conference, all the actors were in great mood, all laughing , smiling and they’re really comfortable with each other.

As usual there’s rice donation from fans to wish the drama doing well. For Lee Jung Jin, he got a bucket of flowers from fans and he uploaded the picture on his twitter.

This is 11 years reunion drama for Choi Ji Woo and Kwon Sang Woo.
Choi Ji Woo mentioned that she’s comfortable working with Kwon Sang Woo. She said Stairway to Heaven was like a pretty melodrama while Temptation is more a melodrama for adult.
We couldn’t agree more on that. She described it perfectly !
Meanwhile Kwon Sang Woo revealed that Stairway to Heaven still has a big impact on him and said that Choi Ji Woo is always a great partner to work with.

About the pressure of rating, both Choi Ji Woo and Kwon Sang Woo agreed that they have no burden, feel great about the new drama, will enjoy the shooting and be focus on the work.

We wish Temptation will be killing the rating !

Jung Yong Hwa posted a picture from his newest drama The Three Musketeers on his Twitter account and wrote “I’m Park Dal Hyang”.

The 25-year-old actor and singer wore his saeguk outfit. Rides a horse and he was very convincing and perfect as a warrior !
Definitely can’t wait to see him in action.

This will be Jung Yong Hwa’s fourth drama (or fifth if we count his cameo appearance in A Gentleman’s Dignity) and also the first saeguk ! Such a perfect timing for him to elevated his game with an exciting action saeguk.

it's okay it's love

After being rocked with plagiarism scandal for its previous cute teaser, upcoming SBS drama It’s Okay It’s Love comes with another cute item.

It’s a behind the scene video and it’s very cute. All but smile is what would you do upon seeing it !

And with that kind of working atmosphere, it certainly doesn’t feel like working for those actors.

The drama itself will premiere on July 23.
