KDrama: My Fair Lady Eps 1-3

Finally! The long wait is over!

For more than 2 years YEH hasn’t been in the any KDrama, and as soon as I heard of her new project, I was really excited!

I already made 2 posts about it, this is the 3rd one. Not that excited, huh?

Well, I was able to watch the first 3 episodes yesterday with english sub courtesy of

About the drama, I find it very funny and little by little getting the hang of the 3 main characters. Their backgrounds are way too complicated and you must really watch the first 3 eps to at least understand them.

Kang Hey Na (Yoon Eun Hye) is the uber rich granddaughter of a business tycoon. She had everything that’s why she’s spoiled, bratty and evil. She is the female version of Jun Pyo in BOF. But later on you will understand that she was just rebelling from her grandfather’s previous order, not yet clear though what happened but it’s about her first love.

Seo Dong Chan (Yoon Sang Hyun) on the other hand, is a former gigolo and works really hard to pay off her deceased mother’s debts. He had a nasty vehicular encounter with Hena and instead of out-of-court settlement, he pursued that she got penalized and she did by having to render 120 hours of community service. By some twist of fate he was hired by the grandfather to become Heyna’s personal assistant/ butler. But he too had ulterior motive in accepting the job, that is for Heyna to fall for him (using his gigolo antics) and thus get her money (to pay those loan sharks).

Lee Tae Yoon (Jung II Woon) is a human rights lawyer, actually a son of a business tycoon as well, but he opt to cut ties with his family. He was supposed to had a blind date with Heyna but he refused. His character was just starting to entwined with Heyna. So let’s look out for it.

Btw, did I mentioned that he’s uber cute and now he’s my crush? Sorry Dong Jie (Roy Qui)…

Why are the third wheelers cuter and a better person than the lead?

It’s making me furious!

Anyway, I’ll have you guys anytime of the day!

Can’t wait for the next eps!

TwDrama: Easy Fortune Happy Life

As scheduled, I was able to watch this drama during my 2 days off.

I am still waiting for the last 2 eps but with the 11 eps, I could generally picture the ending. Of course, Qiao En would end up with Blue Lan.

But why I'm not happy?

It is the first time, I did not like the male lead, usually even if they play bad boy first (like Jun Pyo in BOF), you would still fall in love with the character and hope he would change (sorry, I'm just a hopeless romantic). It did happen here but I still don't like Blue Lan, ok he's cute and I must say he's effective in his drama but still there's no effect on me. Sorry Blue Lan!

Qiao En is still at her best, although after the huge success of FTLY, this drama fails to at least level up. The first two eps, I was crying my eyes out. The granny's love is so great even after 50 years she is still waiting for her first love's promise. Huhuhu.

Would I forget the uber HOT third wheel, Roy Qui? Wished so many times that Fu An will fall for him instead. Or rather that he would fall for me. Hahaha.

My summary:

Chun Xiang (Granny) and Wang Cai (Gramps) met during their younger years. She treated him when he got injured in the mountain. At that time, his medicine business got bankcrupted. He befriended and stole Xiang's family medicine recipe, then promised to return for her. She did wait, but eventually got her own family.

Present time, Xie Fu An and brother Pi Dan lives with Granny (both their parents died), in a small run-down hut. But till this day Granny still hopes that Gramps will come and fulfill his promise. She later died, with this Fu An and Pi Dan set forth to look for Gramps.

Meanwhile, Gramps remembered Granny after he had a near death experience, and set up to look for Granny but learned that she died but left her 2 grandchildren. So he wants to make amends and to give the company to Fu An and to whoever will be his husband. Knowing that his family, he has 2 grandson, would never give up their inheritance to other people.

So came Yan Da Feng, with a devil-like personality, set to at first kill Fu An, but later on decided to marry her instead to get the money.

And there is also Han Dong Jie, a gangster in nature but had very good personality. He's been saved or rather Fu An helped him one time and he vowed to protect him forever.

Jocelyn Wang as the bitch Jiang Zhen Zhen, the scheming gf of Da Feng. Hate her so much! Grr!

My personal rating:

Title : Easy Fortune Happy Life

Genre : Romantic Comedy

Total ep : 13

Casts : Chen Qiao En as Xie Fu An, Blue Lan as Yan Da Feng, Roy Qui as Han Dong Jie and Jocelyn Wang as Jiang Zhen Zhen

Kilig rating : 7/10
(I don't feel any kilig between Qiao En and Blue Lan. I gave add'l points for Roy Qui!)

Story rating : 7/10
(Same old plot line, but still I enjoy watching it)

Drama Mode

I’ve been keeping myself away from my major addiction, that is watching asian dramas, mainly because as like any addiction I can’t seem to stop.

So I think for months I was successful in doing this but I already missed it so bad.

That’s why for the next two days (read my Unusual Weekend post), I will succumb to my weakness.

I already made a list of my must see asian dramas:

My Fair Lady – first ep was shown Aug 18, I don’t care whether subbed or not, I must see YEH!

Dream – Kim Bum’s drama after BOF

Calling Big Star – I wonder if it already started airing, I want to see Mike He!

Easy Fortune Happy Life – curious about Qiao En’s drama after FTLY

Tamra the Island – kdrama adapted from manga of the same title, according to a reliable source, cute and funny story

Hopefully I could watch it all…haha…

Sticky Note: New Title and Plot for YEH's new Kdrama

I've written about YEH's upcoming drama to be shown this August.

But along the way, the title, plot and characters kept on changing.

Now it is called My Fair Lady after Please Take Care of the Lady and Lady Castle.

And the cast and plot has been finalized.

Yoon Eun Hye as Kang Hye Na
Yoon Sang Hyun as Seo Dong Chan
Jung II Woo as
Lee Tae Yoon

Here's the summary I got from wiki-addicts:

Of the high-rolling top 'hot celebrities' of the wealthy upper class in Korea's high society, Kang Hye Na (Hena) is the one desired by the men, feared and hated by the women. Being the only successor to the largest conglomerate company, Kang-san Group, Kang Hena has both the looks and the background. She is the owner of the ‘Lady Castle’ and lives a ‘princess-like’ life with her servants.

Until one day, out of pure coincidence, she comes across Seo Dong Chan who turns her life upside down. Not only does he make her do community service, he even kidnapped her... and now he's the new household manager!!! Even after stepping on him, crushing him and biting him, he still doesn't run away. She may have finally met her match...

Can't wait for Aug 18!

Hopefully someone can subbed it soon after it's release, although I do watch eps without subs and can get some ideas correct, talking about being a drama addict!

And from the looks of it I'll fall for Jung II Woo!

Sticky Note: Rain in Enter the Dragon remake

After his assasin role in the movie "Ninja Assasin" there comes another Hollywood offer from Warner Bros, Bruce Lee's most famous film Enter the Dragon.

Although as of this date Rain and his agency has not yet confirmed or accepted the offer.

Not a huge fan, but love him in Full House with Song Hye Kyo.

I'm sure a lot of his fans would want to see him in Enter the Dragon.

I'll watch it too, promise!

Sticky Note: Playful Kiss , Korea ’s adaptation of Itazura na Kiss

After Boys Over Flower, Korea will soon work on their adaptation of the manga and anime Itazura na Kiss. It has previously been made into JDrama and TwDrama.

Remember ISWAK? It Started With A Kiss that made Ariel Lin and Joe Chen a household pair, it was followed by They Kissed Again.

We expect Playful Kiss to get as much attention as BOF.

Who will play the lead roles? Wanna bet?

But we have to wait until next summer to watch it.

Sticky Note: Taiwan's Jay Chou goes Hollywood

Columbia Pictures has confirmed that Jay Chou has been casted as Kato, the sidekick of the superhero in The Green Hornet which will be played by Seth Rogen. The movie is set to be released by July 2010.

I’m not a fan of Jay Chou, but I must admit he’s a pretty good singer and actor. Last time I watched him is in the movie Kung Fu Dunk and drama Hot Shot with Jerry Yan.

Go Jay! Make us proud!

Sticky Note: Hyun Bin and Song Hye Kyo are a couple!

Yup, you read it right...not just friends and dating but they and their own agencies confirmed that they are definitely an item.

Lovers already for 2 months!

OMG! I can't contain my happiness!

I both love these korean actors.

Followed SHK from Autumn in my Heart, Full House, etc.

While HB from Kim Sam Soon, Snow Queen, etc.

They paired up in the World's Within and I guess there blossomed their lovestory!

Really happy for them.

And they do look good together!
