MBLAQ is King of Live Performance?

I have to admit I throw around the term "King of Live Performance" a little too easily. But seriously, after reviewing a few of MBLAQ's performances, I have nothing but great appreciation for what they bring on the table, or in this case stage, every time. I'm just glad there's more singers out there that aren't merely recording artists.

Movie Review: Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005)

Now I have to tell you, I hate war movies. Or war overall. I hate war. I'm totally against the concept, the idea of war. Whatever the reason for war I never agree with. I hate the blood, I hate the fights, I hate the selfishness, I hate everything about it. Especially the blood and piling corpses. Which automatically leaves me hating war movies. I just don't have the heart, or stomach, for it.

Double Dose of Jo Seung-woo!

One of the things I'm looking forward to at the end of this year is the two movies released both starring one of my favorite actors, Jo Seung-woo. It's been two years since his last movie was out, so I'm extremely excited.

Spy Myung-wol, a Drama Within a Drama

If you've been following Korean entertainment news in the last 24 hours, the biggest story to come out of it all is probably what I like to call Han Ye-seul vs Spy Myungwol. So, what's up with all the hullabaloo you ask?

Netizens Say No to KBS's Lesbian Drama

There's an interesting news bit that came out today that I want to talk about. It's about netizens (or internet citizens) being upset about KBS airing the first Lesbian-themed drama titled Daughters of Club Bilitis. This isn't the first time the netizens have spoken about their disappointment of a certain channel airing topics concerning the LBGT group. I guess it's nothing new that a conservative society is speaking out against LGBT. I understand them at first. But now, it's just getting old.

The Best K-Variety Show: 1 Night 2 Days

To tell you the truth, there is no better variety TV than Korean variety TV. There's just something about K-variety shows that makes you want to sit in front of the screen and watch it more and more. It's mindless fun and a great way to end a hectic week.

One of my ultimate favorite variety show is KBS 1 Night 2 Days (1박 2일). It follows 6 celebrities of different backgrounds (actors, comedians, singers) and age (the youngest is in his mid 20s and the oldest in his 40s) as they travel around the country highlighting Korea's beauty in 2 days and 1 night. The show debuted in 2007 and has since garnered quite a large audience, both inland and international. The cast has changed a few times during its 4 year run. Currently, it boasts "national MC" Kang Hodong, comedian Lee Sugeun, singer/rapper Eun Jiwon, singer Kim Jongmin, the multi-talented Lee Seunggi, and their newest addition the adorable ajusshi/actor Uhm Taewoong.
