Am I The Only One OBSESSED With Gong Hyo-jin's Dramas?

I love Korean Dramas that have relatable female main characters. A lot of Korean actresses are really cute and all, but make for pretty dry portrayals, which end up making the dramas SO BORING to watch. However, Gong Hyojin has consistently played what I'd call my 'K-Drama Spirit Animal'!
I don't know if she's one of those actresses who gets to pick her own scripts, but all of her lead roles are consistently awesome. I'm always rooting for her and admire her strengths, and at the same time, her characters have flaws I can see in myself too.

Yoo-kyung in 'Pasta'

First off, I loved 'Pasta'. This drama basically combined three of my favorite things - Gong Hyo-jin, a love triangle involving cute male leads, and massive amounts of carbohydrates. Hyojin's pasta chef Yoo-kyung spoke to my emotional eating side. (I mean, look at her face. You just haven't cried until you've cried with a mouthful of fettuccine alfredo.)

Gong-shil in 'Master's Sun'

This is the drama where Hyo-jin could see dead people. I can't see dead people, but I could relate to the general insecurities she had after spending her life that way. I think everyone has felt like something of an outsider before in their life, right? (Except, you know, I probably would have been way more into Seo In Guk than she was. I mean, girl. GIRL.)

Hae-soo in 'It's Okay, That's Love'

I love this drama so much that it's one of the few dramas that I watched twice in a row! Hae-soo was my dream K-Drama character. She was fiercely independent, extremely ambitious, and while she did end up finding love, love was never her primary pursuit. Of course, she had her share of crying scenes, but she always knew to keep her composure.
(Also, I love this picture. She's like 'Don't speak, Jo In-sung. Just stand there and look pretty for all the K-Drama girls binge-watching our show on Viki.')

Ye-jin in 'The Producers'

I LOVED Yejin because she's totally suited to where I feel like I am in my own life - part-time professional, part-time insufferable teenager. I loved the way she moaned and groaned and always had something to be sarcastic about, but at the same time, was smart, driven, and definitely knew how to hustle and get things done.
Sooooooo... that's me and my undying spirit animal crush on Gong Hyo-jin's K-Drama characters! I can't wait until she's in another drama, as I hope her next role will be as equally awesome as all her past ones have been. (Do you hear me, Hyo-jin?! Don't blow this!!)

Korean TV, This Is Just Getting Ridiculous
So by now we all know about Produce 101. In case you don't, though, here's a short breakdown: There have been two seasons on MBC (one for girls, one for boys) that takes 101 trainees and puts them through tests and voting until only a certain number remain and they create a new idol group (for a short period of time, then they go back to their original companies. The channel KBS is preparing to take it to the next level. The company is preparing a show currently called "The Final 99 Match" that will take performers that have had the chance to debut, but never found success. There are plenty of idol groups (unfortuately called "nugus") that have never really succeeded. Ideally, this show is where they get a chance to join a new group and get a shot at fame. That's sort of normal and understandable, but this is where it gets absolutely ridiculous. There reportedly will be 250 BOYS AND 250 GIRLS competing. 9 of each gender will survive and be placed into groups (number of groups have not been decided) I understand that idol TV shows are getting popular, much like how American Idol in the States led to The X Factor, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc etc etc. But 500 people?! When they've already survived the harsh kpop audition and training system to debut? That must be so heartbreaking for all of them. I'd feel less bad if they were complete rookies with zero training but dang, to already debut...its like NU'EST being in Produce 101 right now. So sad for the fans :/ I wish everyone luck and hope it changes some lives for the better but I have a feeling this competition is going to be a heart ache. What do you guys think? source
