Korean Drama “Heartstrings” will start to invade their foreign fans

Heartstrings (넌 내게 반했어) is a Korean Drama starring Park Shin Hye and Jung Yonghwa. This is their second drama together. But, on this time, Jung Yonghwa is now the partner of Park Shin Hye. (Their first drama together was “You’re Beautiful with Jang Geun Suk and Lee Hongki)

Although the drama’s rating was not that good, they made their international fans fallen from it. As a proof, the drama was recently voted as the “Best Korean Drama” on squidoo.com and on a fan-created page on Facebook “Best of Korea” .

It was pre-sold to eight countries including: China, Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines and North America while talks in acquiring the rights to broadcast the show is still ongoing in several other places before the drama aired in Korea.

There are three versions of the drama’s titles have also been confirmed. “Heartstrings” in America, “Ni Wei Wo Zhao Mi” in China and “You have fallen for me” (translated title) for other overseas places.

So, if you have a Facebook account, like the following pages to get the latest updates about the casts and the drama.

Saranghae – Sabrina

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

I

Gusto ko mang gawin

Ang pagpigil sa damdamin ay napakahirap nga naman

 

II

Pag nakakasama ka

Lalo lang aong nangangamba

Ba’t di ko masabi na

 

Refrain:

Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

III

Talagang ibang-iba

Na itong aking nadarama

Sana’y ‘wag nang matapos pa

 

IV

Ngunit ‘pag nahalata

Ay wala na ‘kong magagawa

Aaminin ko na

 

Refrain:

Lagi kang nasa isipan ko

At ‘wag ka sanang lalayo

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo saranghae

 

Bridge:

Dahil d’yan lang sa piling mo

Nabubuhay ang puso ko

Natutong umibig

Sana ay ingatang tunay

 

At sana kung sakali man

Tayo ay mapagbigyan

Na magkatuluyan

Ako ay sa’yo lamang

 

Chorus:

Dahil sa piling mo’y lagi, kay saya ng aking puso

Para bang ako’y nasa langit na

Ang paligid ay ligaya

Kung ito ma’y panaginip

Ay ayoko nang magising

Ang pag-ibig ko’y patuloy

At aaminin ko sa’yo mahal kita.

Dropping Rain Tagalog Version sung by Nyoy Voalnte

Sadyang walang patid ligaya at saya

Pagmamahal natin ang syang nadarama

Walang sayang sa ating bawat sandali

Hindi sanay ng magkawalay

 

Panahon na nagdaan

Tila ba walang hanggan

Sana ay di na matapos pa..

Pangakong iibigin ka kailan pa man

Ayokong makikita kang nasasaktan

At nais kong malaman mong sa’yo lang ang puso ko

Iingatan ko ang tunay na pag-ibig natin

Ito ang pangako ko.

 

Kahit kailan hindi ka na mag-iisa

Tanging ligaya ko’y sa piling mo sinta

Unos ma’t, tag-ulan ay kakayanin ko

Wag ka lang malulungkot at luluha

 

Panahon na nagdaan

Tila ba walang hanggan

Sana ay di na matapos pa..

 

Pangakong iibigin ka kailan pa man

Ayokong makikita kang nasasaktan

At nais kong malaman mong sayo lang ang puso ko

Iingatan ko ang tunay na pag-ibig natin

Ito ang pangako ko

Di magbabago..

Di magba..bago..

Pag-ibig ko sayo..

 

Pangakong iibigin ka kailan pa man

Ayokong makikita kang nasasaktan

Iingatan ko ang tunay na pag-ibig natin

Moon Chae-won interview: Becoming daddy’s girl

As I’d mentioned before, I’m finding the new SBS drama It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl watchable and interesting despite a number of flaws that do, admittedly, hold it back from being as good as it could be. But I like the setup and responded strongly to the family relationships — and it doesn’t hurt that the drama’s lead actress, Moon Chae-won, is finally getting a chance to show what she can do.

She hasn’t totally proven herself yet, but she’s off to a decent start, especially in comparison to her previous roles. She’s had some memorable parts in the past but only as side characters, some of whom were relegated to one-dimensional plot movers. But Moon has been steadily accruing more screentime and experience, through dramas like Painter of the Wind (she played a beautiful gisaeng who falls for Moon Geun-young, who passes herself of as a man), Brilliant Legacy (where she was an antagonist to the Cinderella-like lead, Han Hyo-joo), and My Fair Lady (where she was bright and energetic, but wasted in lame plots).

In It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl, Moon Chae-won plays someone very different from those previous characters; Moon can seem mature for her age (she’s 25), but her character Chae-ryung is completely immature. (At least, at the start of the drama.) Chae-ryung is the type of girl who has her daddy wrapped around her little finger, and who’s not above whining and pouting because she wants a designer handbag, like a young child.

So what drew Moon to the role? Aside from getting her first opportunity to be the leading actress, she found herself drawn to the drama that is rooted in father-daughter love: “I was very moved by it. Four months ago, I first received the synopsis for this drama, and reading it conveyed a very touching sense of family love. You might just say that I’m suitable for a trendy drama by looking at my acting experience, but I wanted to do a drama that had a deeper value. And in the end, I came to meet Eun Chae-ryung.”

She added, “I had a lot of worries about getting fully in character as Chae-ryung. I would have to completely depart from my previous roles, where I played relatively mature characters, and play the kind of innocent young girl who could burst into tears at the smallest thing. I’m currently trying to live as Chae-ryung in my everyday life as well. You know, trying to laugh nonsensically, then suddenly turning sullen. [Laughs]”

One thing that could have been a cause for concern is that the drama has collected a number of young, fresh faces in its cast, many of whom were from the pop music world. In fact, in its early days some referred to Daddy’s Girl as a “pop singer drama”: You have Lee Hee-jin from late’-90s girl group Baby VOX as the eldest sister; Kang Sung cast as a spendthrift rich boy; Super Junior’s Donghae as the lead’s younger brother, who works multiple jobs to keep his family afloat; and CN Blue’s Kang Min-hyuk, who plays a delivery boy and drummer in a band.

This could have provided fodder for criticism if the idols hadn’t performed well, but thankfully nobody’s bombed. Lee Hee-jin in particular is attracting praise, and she deserves it: As Chae-ryung’s older sister Ae-ryung, she exudes warmth and heartfelt emotion. Moon said of Lee Hee-jin, “I’d remembered her as one of the original idol stars, but as I came to work with her, I was really shocked. On the set, she’s always exchanging lines and practicing dialogue, always deliberating over her acting. She’s a promising actor.”

Lee is definitely the strongest performer of the idol set, but Kang Sung is also acquitting himself pretty well as the frivolous Jin-gu. He hasn’t had as much emoting to do, but he carries off the character’s silliness and arrogance. And while Donghae is obviously very green and his line deliveries aren’t quite natural, he’s been holding up. He’ll probably get to stretch himself more than, say, Min-hyuk — who has barely had anything to do so far — because it looks like his earnest character will provide opportunity for a lot of dramatic acting.

In response to the idol issue, Moon Chae-won said, “Because we’re all learning about acting, I think it gives the drama a strong energy. It’s my first leading role and they [the idols] are starting on a new path, so we have reasons for needing to succeed through this drama. The shooting atmosphere is passionate.”

Since they’re mostly peers, there’s also a strong sense of friendship among the actors. Birthday parties are common when actors are shooting dramas on their birthdays, but Moon explained that she was so touched by the cast and crew throwing her a birthday party on November 13 that she cried. Her co-star Choi Jin-hyuk wasn’t shooting that day, but he came bearing flowers.

Moon debuted in 2007′s drama Run, Mackerel; prior to that, she was a student at Chugye University for the Arts, majoring in fine arts. “I studied art since I was a child. About the time I entered university, I realized that the profession I really wanted to pursue was acting, but it wasn’t easy to shed my original dream so I entered school in the fine arts program. But with my personality, I couldn’t focus on two things at once, so in the end I decided to choose the path of actor and left school.”

She also writes, whenever she has time. In the past year during breaks from work, she’s written numerous essays, and dreams of publishing a book sometime off in the future.

“When I’m in the process of acting is when I feel the greatest happiness. I want to be an actress who is respected by all, like my great sunbae Sohn Ye-jin. In choosing this career path, I’ve gotten to meet many outstanding directors, writers, and other valuable people. I’m really happy, aren’t it? [Laughs]”

“Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards” under fire for suspicious poll results

A controversy has recently been surrounding the ‘2010 Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards’, as many fans are doubting the legitimacy of its online voting system.

Between November 8th and the 30th, Yahoo has been conducting an online poll for three categories:‘Korean Male Buzz Star’, ‘Korean Female Buzz Star’ and ‘Asia’s Buzz Star‘.

The problem that had caught the attention of sharp fans is that the poll results for some nominees had either taken a sharp rise or drop in a spontaneous fashion. For instance, in the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category, Jang Geun Suk’s poll results saw sharp rises and falls at a continuous rate, while a considerable number of votes for Kim Hyun Joong dropped unexepectedly.

Consequently, many netizens are suspecting the poll results to have a substantial error in voting calculations.

Fans have become even more angered by Yahoo’s lack of investigation on this matter, who merely called it a simple ’server error’. Netizens commented, “The globally acknowledged Yahoo doesn’t want to be humiliated in public, which is why they are ignoring the hard work of the fans”, “I want to rebuke Yahoo for their lack of action regarding this issue.”

Responding to such criticism, a representative of Yahoo Korea explained on December 2nd, “There was a problem with the server overloading, however, we have not been able to confirm a manipulation of the poll results. We are still inspecting the reasons behind these errors.”

They carefully continued, “We cannot reveal a correct set of poll results without fully completing our investigation. We cannot confirm anything for now.”

Meanwhile, according to the online poll results on the site, Jang Geun Suk ranked 1st place for the ‘Male Buzz Star’ category for this year’s ‘Buzz Awards’.

Kim Hyun Joong has only 40 numbers in his phone?

When asked how many close celebrity friends he had during an interview with Sports Chosun, Kim Hyun Joong replied, “I really don’t have many. The people I spend most of my time with are not celebrities. I only have about 40 numbers saved in my phone because I like memorizing numbers instead.

On Xiah Junsu: “I became close with him along with Hero Jaejoong because we debuted around the same time. He’s one of the ‘Men’ members of our celebrity soccer team, which also includes Lee Wan,Kim Bum, and Micky Yoochun. Wan-hyung went to the military so we don’t meet up to play as often, but we all love it enough to meet up at 2:00 AM to play. We don’t have specific positions or numbers, we just run around in packs, chasing after the ball. One time, Junsu suggested that we make uniforms with our own numbers on the back. I said I wanted to be ‘Root3′ and he told me to shut up.”

On Micky Yoochun: “I don’t see him often, but he’s a drinking buddy that I’d run out of the house for at any time of the day. He’s never fake with me, which is why I love him. Our nicknames for each other consists of swears. I actually wasn’t able to monitor for him when he was doing ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal‘ because I was in ‘Playful Kiss,’ but I did watch it all at once later and felt that the drama ended right when it was getting good.”

On Gummy: “She’s a close nuna that is even friends with my mother. A while ago, her parents opened an oyster restaurant in Bundang, so I went and had a meal with soju by myself.

On SS501: “We’ll be releasing an album next year. They’re dongsengs that will be with me for the rest of my life. Some time ago, Kim Hyung Joon said that I ignored his text in a conference for his musical. I was in China at the time and my battery died, so I was unable to check his text. Now, whenever I go out overseas, I’m going to make sure I bring an extra charger.”

Moon Geun Young reveals BTS photos from “Mary Stayed Out All Night”

The nation’s cutie, Moon Geun Young, has uploaded some cute behind-the-scenes photos from her drama, KBS 2TV’s “Mary Stayed Out All Night.”

The pictures show a lot of her comedic side, such as two with her face pressed up against a window, and one where she imitates the Puss in Boots from “Shrek.”

Producers of the drama stated on November 24th, “It’s difficult to for her to find a balance between looking cute and embarrassing herself. Thankfully, people have been responding warmly.”

Kim Hyun Joong to release solo album next year + interview

It isn’t a mere coincidence that Kim Hyun Joong has already played two animation character roles in a row.

The nickname ‘pretty boy’ has followed him since his debut five years ago with idol group SS501 and became only further engrained into fans’ minds after he made his acting debut through, “Boys Over Flowers.” Even with his casting for “Playful Kiss” this year, the nickname stuck by his side like glue.

A rich perfect man named Jihoo and the cranky prodigy Baek Seung Jo. Both characters were the ideal men of the female leads, but also prettier than them as well.

However, as an actor burning with desire to try other roles, such a strong one-sided image isn’t always positive, as Kim Hyun Joong states, “People look at me and just think that my image is a ‘pretty boy.’ Since I’m now a rookie actor, I think they just give me roles that fit that look. I’m sure I’ll be able to try other roles next time.”

im Hyun Joong is divided into two: an actor and SS501’s leader. He grew as an SS501 member and now stands as one of the greatest Hallyu stars, attending events such as the “2010 Guangzhou Asian Games” and others.

It made me look back at myself since I attended the event representing Korea. It was an honorable experience. They told me that just one side of the stadium held 100,000 audience members. It was quite the experience.”

Another nickname that was recently added beside his name was, “The 2nd Bae Yong Joon.” The star was personally scouted by top Hallyu star ‘Yonsama’ into Kaist Entertainment and seems used to the nickname now.

They say that I resemble him in my smiles and in the way I manage myself. I must resemble him in some ways for them to say that, I suppose. I honestly don’t know. Whenever I meet hyung, we talk comfortably about acting and living… We’re not able to meet often because he’s busy.”

When asked about his thoughts on being the first leading role for a drama, he didn’t seem too disappointed about the lag in viewer ratings and believed it to be a personal advancement for himself. “It was harder than ‘Boys Over Flowers’ since I had to lead the entire drama on my own. There is a bit of disappointment but I want to grow and work harder in my next project.

When asked to choose his favorite actors, he chose Yoo Hae Jin and Oh Dal Su.  The two are famous for being the supporting actors in various films. “I’m definitely thankful in being able to play the lead roles twice in a row, but I think that supporting roles are great as well. If I like it enough, I won’t care about the importance of the role.

But just because he began walking down the path of an actor doesn’t mean he’s giving up his dreams as a singer. He is actually preparing for his comeback with his first solo album due for release in the first half of next year.

I can’t give up being a singer, which is why I’m preparing a solo album. I’ll be releasing one by the middle of next year and I’ve currently received about 200 different songs. Out of the 200, I chose about 5. You can check what kind of album it is when it comes out.

Despite going through a rigorous schedule, he calmly states, “I’m happier than I am tired. I’m able to do the things I love. I’m no longer just following what others say, I’m actually planning my future and accomplishing things. I like planning, I’m always planning.

When asked if he wasn’t granted the same freedom before, he replied, “It’s different from now. Back then, I had to do the things I was asked to since we were a group. Being in a group and being on your own is different.”

He continued, “I still keep in contact with SS501. They’re all busy so we’re not able to meet often but we haven’t disbanded. We can be together whenever we want. Actually, I’m not sure who started the rumor that SS501 will be releasing a group album next year. Even if we do, I want my solo album to be released first (laughter).

When asked about his dreams, he hesitated before answering, “As a singer, my dream is to open a large-scale free concert and invite all of my fans. I have to do it some day.. As for my acting dreams, I want to be an actor that people anticipate the future of.

What about his personal dreams? “I want to meet aliens and travel to outer space. If an alien came up to me right now and asked me to leave with him, I’d leave without any hesitations. Even if they wanted to do a live-body experiment on me, I will go with him.” He plans to travel into space one day no matter what. Having already traveled to the North Pole, he is hoping to visit the South Pole next as well.

The interview was concluded with one final question: If he had to choose between Baek Seung Jo and Jihoo, who would he choose?

Definitely Jihoo. Seung Jo is smart, but he’s poor. If I was Jihoo, I’d be rich enough to travel to outer space.

Moon Geun Young winces at her own ‘Shrek cat eyes’ expression

Actress Moon Geun Young revealed her true feelings regarding the cute expressions.

On the 20th, KBS 2TV Entertainment Weekly introduced the set of new KBS drama Mary Stayed Out All Night. For reference, the main cast members of this drama include Moon Geun Young, Jang Geun Suk and Kim Jae Wook. The drama centers around a cheerful girl named Mary (Moon Geun Young) who is “wedded” to two men for 100 days, where she must choose one man at the end. Regarding this wedding life, Moon Geun Young said, “Up until now, it’s still manageable.”

The actress recently garnered a lot of interest for mimicking the facial expression of Puss in Boots,from the movie Shrek, where she proceeded a pleading look at Jang Geun Suk with her big round eyes. Although the actress was deemed inevitably cute by the audience, she had very different opinions as she expressed, “To tell you the truth, I feel very embarrassed. I’m thinking that the people who watch this probably feel the same way.”

Meanwhile, on this day fellow cast member Jang Geun Suk also revealed that Moon Geun Young likes to drink beer and soju mixed drinks.

Making Film Part 2 of ‘Playful Kiss’ Special revealed through YouTube

 

MBC’s ‘Playful Kiss‘ came to an end on the 21st of October. The drama went against some tough competition and suffered in the ratings department. Despite that, the show grew a small die-hard fan base and they were quite disappointed to see the show end so soon. However, that disappointment was somewhat turned around when there was news stating that Playful Kiss would continue airing via special episodes through video sharing website Youtube. The announcement also mentioned that it will have a different storyline than the TV version!

We have posted the 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st specials before, and now check out the second part of making film video (as I posted the first part of it yesterday) below!

Kim Hyun Joong stated, “Since Youtube doesn’t have strict restrictions, we were able to show a steamier love scene than on television. I believe that the couple will look more natural than on TV. Youtube is a place where netizens of the entire world can share and communicate. I hope ‘Playful Kiss’ can participate in the phenomenon and become an international icon.”

The making-of video for the drama “Playful Kiss” was revealed on Novemer 17th, featuring never-before-seen scenes and various NG cuts.

Since November 2nd, the Youtube channel for “Playful Kiss” has been uploading three special episodes every week, achieving impressive records in views and replies.
