Enlisted for the Military Training
"MBC ‘Feel Good Day’ Reports On Male Stars Enlisting For The Army Soon" The September 2nd episode of MBC ‘Feel Good Day’ not only reported on actor Song Joong Ki who enlisted for the army last month, but also male actors who will be enlisting soon as well. Male stars who were born in 1985, 1986, and 1987 especially are next in line to join the army. Lee Min Ki and Choi Jin Hyuk will enlist next year, while Lee Tae Sung who is currently filming ‘Gold, Appear!’ will enlist after the drama concludes. Park Ki Woong will serve in the Whistle Theatre Group as his national service, under the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency by year-end. Others who are due for enlistment in the coming months includes: Jang Geun Suk, Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Min Ho, Park Yoo Chun (JYJ), Kim Jae Joong (JYJ), Kim Junsu (JYJ), Lee Seung Gi, Choi Daniel, Yoo Ah In, Seo In Guk, and TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho. One of the show’s hosts was curious as to whether numerous overseas fans really make special trips to South Korea just to send off their favourite stars to the army. Another host replied, “They do not just come for that, as its part of the travel package that they brought. They can see stars, and also visit the tourist attractions. Although the PR agents unit have been scrapped, there’s still the Whistle Theatre Group where talented people can put their talents to good use. The Whistle Theatre Group puts on many musicals for the police officers. Lee Je Hoon is one of the recent additions to the Whistle Theatre Group following his enlistment last year, while Park Ki Woong will also be joining him in the near future.” By: Korea Star Daily | KpopFighting.com; Jo Hae Jin Copyright @KpopFighting.com
Flower of Evil - K-Drama Recommendation
Main Cast: Lee Joon Gi, Moon Chae Won, Jang Hee Jin, Seo Hyun Woo Episodes: 16 (1 Hour Episodes) - Currently Airing (On Viki) Rating: 15+ Genre: Thriller, Romance, Crime, Drama, Melodrama Other Genre Tags: Mystery, Serial Killer, Hidden Identity, Psychological, Suspense Synopsis: Baek Hee Sung seems like the ideal husband. A hard-working craftsman, his metal-working studio has met with its fair share of success. Able to provide a good life for his wife and daughter, he’s a good example of what a husband should be. But this perfect façade hides some very dark secrets that even his wife, Cha Ji Won remains unaware of. Unfortunately, secrets have a way of coming out and as a hard-hitting homicide detective, it’s Cha Ji Won’s job to uncover as many as she can, in her never-ending quest for the truth. While investigating a particularly cruel case, she finds herself on a dark path that could crumble the very foundations of her happy life. But she is determined to bring this psychopath to justice. Delving deeper into the case, she realizes that he may have been closer than she thought. (Source: Viki) My Thoughts: VERY intriguing so far! There are only 2 episodes out so far and it's very suspenseful and thrilling. This isn't really a spoiler but Baek Heesung/Do Hyunsoo (Lee Joongi) is suspected to be a serial killer but has changed his identity and has married Cha Jiwon (Moon Chaewon) who happens to be a cop. The two of them have a kid together, however, there's a kicker being that Heesung/Hyunsoo lacks emotions. Something he seems to have gotten from his father who is also said to be a serial killer. Note, this is not really a spoiler since all this is revealed within the confines of the first 2 episodes. I find this plot-line to be very new, at least to the Korean drama scene. The only Korean drama I can even pit against this one in being similar is Kill It and that is because the male in that drama is also a murderer, but their backgrounds are entirely different. You could say that Psychopath Diary is slightly similar, however, that drama is a comedy and is based off the idea of a misunderstanding. Even though we haven't been fully exposed to the idea that Heesung/Hyunsoo is infact a murderer we still see him doing stuff that someone who is innocent wouldn't do. I find this interesting. Another thing I like is that we get to see a character who has trouble showing emotions. This isn't something new to the K-Drama scene for we have seen similar variations in dramas such as It's Okay To Not Be Okay, Dr. Frost, Stranger (Forest of Secrets), and The Smile Has Left Your Eyes. It is nice to see characters that aren't perfect if that makes any sense! I am definitely curious to see where this drama leads and to find out if Heesung/Hyunsoo is actually a murderer or if he's being falsely accused and us the audience are being tricked! - See my last K-drama recommendations below: Train It's Okay to Not Be Okay Extracurricular Memorist & Arthdal Chronicles Rugal & 365: Repeat the Year The World of the Married & Find Me in Your Memory The King: Eternal Monarch & My Holo Love - What I'm Currently Watching: Flower of Evil 2/16 - Korean It's Okay to Not Be Okay 12/16 - Korean Psychopath Diary 5/16 - Korean Train 4/12 - Korean Trap 4/12 - Korean Web-drama U-Prince: The Badly Politics 3/4 - Thai - Friend Me On MyDramaList Here: Halsyeon - Asian Drama/Movie Taglist: @KendraReeve @travelloveskin @MelissaGarza @KpopIsPleasing @LostMage @2ilVer @LinnyOk @rocklvr @VeronicaArtino @Just2BLoved @Kyla05 If you'd like to be tagged in any of my Asian drama/actor stuff please let me know!

MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NU’EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3
