I don’t know. People keep saying it’s good but I’m a little skeptical. Also Scheduler from 49 Days is in this! Exciting stuff. I might just have to wait until all the episodes come out and see what people say about it, then watch it. lol I know that’s lazy but a drama is a huge time investment and it pisses me off when it turns out badly. Lie to Me, for example. Can someone please tell me what was the point of Lie to Me? Anyways, that’s a whole different rant.

HUNKS THAT CAN ACT (#4)

Goong Yoo: He’s arguably the most seasoned actor in my list. He captured my heart and my respect by perfectly portraying the role of a sexually confused main character in Coffee Prince (homosexuality is a pretty controversial topic in Korea) and he never gave neither back. More recently, he has acted in the movie The Crucible which tackles the heavy subject of abuse in a school for mentally and physically disabled children. I would need to gather all my emotional courage to watch a film like that, let alone act in it. So huge props. He has also acted in the film Finding Mr. Destiny which I have been meaning to watch forever. Really, the only reason Goong Yoo is not higher in this list is because I have yet to watch most of his works but I’ve heard from many people that he is a phenomenal actor so I’m really looking forward to getting to know him better.

*excuse the ridiculously blurry middle picture but I just could not leave out topless Goong Yoo. *___*

This is the start of yet another one of my silly lists to amuse you guys while I decide what drama to review or recap next. Originally this list was supposed to be about whom I believed to be the best actors in k-dramas, j-dramas, and tw-dramas but then I realized how difficult it would be to comply that list. There are so many actors and so much criteria to grade on. It would take me months to come up with a legitimate list! So, my solution? Let’s drastically narrow the selection and maybe make this a little more fun. Hence this became: Hunks That Can Act. There are exactly two criteria to make this list: 1) the actor must be hot and 2) he must be a good actor as well. Much easier to do. lol And to add to the excitement let’s do this in descending order so I get to reveal my all-time favourite at the end! To start up let’s look at the individuals that couldn’t quite make the list but I felt bad leaving them totally out of this post.

HUNKS THAT CAN ACT

~Honorary Mentions~

Jang Guen Seuk: He was the hardest one to leave out of my top 5! This Korean actor is more pretty than handsome but he’s got a smile than that can warm just about anyone’s heart. Casting directors can not bear to let his amazing singing voice got to waste so he’s usually cast in music-related dramas.  See him in You’re Beautiful and Mary Stayed Out All Night.

Roy Qiu: To be honest I have only ever watched him in one drama. He was the second male lead but he definitely stole the spot light from the primary lead with his adorable character and genuine emotions. I had the biggest drama-crush on him in Easy Fortune Happy Life (TW).

Mizushima Hiro: Okay, so his acting is not top notch but it’s bearable. lol His mediocre acting skills are a small price to pay to see his pretty pretty face on the screen. Have fun watching him portray wacky characters in Hana Kimi (JP) and Absolute Boyfriend (JP).

Ryo Nishikido: His heartbreaking performance in the Japanese tear-jerker 1 Litre of Tears immediately put this young talent on the map for me.

Jerry Yan: I’m not completely convinced he is a good actor but he was really cute in Down with Love. His greek statue-like features help a lot too. (Also do you guys see the resemblance between him and DBSK’s Changmin? It’s crazy!)

Needless to say: I have returned, if anyone still follows this blog…. *cricket* *cricket* *tumbleweed*

Where have I been? Nowhere and everywhere. Summer’s passed (which was supposed to be when I would post the most, ironically) and autumn’s is halfway to it’s end. After a short vacation in California (which was AWESOME by the way), I started university. Then it was just a lot changes, work, assignments, tests etc etc. I’m still not convince I love it to be honest. Believe it or not, throughout ALL THIS TIME, I hadn’t watched a single drama. I finished Lie to Me and Sunny Happiness before school let out and started some (City Hunter, The Greatest Love, 49 days) before that. But for nearly 4 months now I watched zero dramas. Zip. Nada. 0. Lately, however, I’ve been hearing good things about Protect the Boss so I made a resolve to watch it but somehow I ended up hooked on A Thousand Days’ Promise instead and now I don’t want to watch anything else because it might ruin the ~mood~ for me (I’m weird).  So yeah that’s what I’ve been up to. There was also this friend of mine who kept asking for advice on what dramas to watch because she is still fresh in her drama phase. Of course, I gave her the most opinionated and long explanation as to why My Princess was definitely better than Marry Me Mary (but it all ended in my recommending Snow Queen instead lol) and suddenly, I missed my blog. Since then, I had been conflicted on starting up this blog again because it takes a lot time commitment but nostalgia got the best of me. So here I am. Back and with lots of fresh ideas. ^^

I watched Love Buffet! It’s this cuteasabutton Taiwanese drama. But ohmylawd was it frustrating. The main girl was okay at first (although overlybubbly, in my opinion) but as the drama got on she just wore me down because she changes crushes like she changes clothes. Like seriously. It just goes against all drama rules. Main girls are supposed to like the main guy throughout the majority of drama. Or else people like me will get confused and won’t know who to root for. Okay? Good.

….

Alright you got me. I’m just butthurt because the guy I liked isn’t the guy that gets her in the end. *sobs* Don’t you just hate it when that happens? It’s just so tragic. Here’s this guy who is so flawless and perfect but then BAM something happens and you can see that he isn’t going to end up with the girl. Nope. He is destined to be #foreveralone.

Anyways, I stopped watching Love buffet around episode 9 or so (I know I’m being a baby about this). It really wasn’t all that bad, if I’m objective. I’ll try to do an unbiased mini-review for it sometime soon.

Just in case anyone was wondering why I was MIA for a while there… that’s why. And guess what? I finshed it. Yay!

Battle of the cute?
The Milky couple (the highlight of Dream High according to my friends) or Kim Tae Hee and Song Seung Hun. I’m going to watch both but WHICH ONE FIRST? :/ I don’t know… I guess I’ll have to go by The First Episode Principle*. Updates later. ^^
The First Episode Principle*- theory that states that the first episode always determines how good the rest of the drama will be.
