My Drama Land is experiencing a bit of drought again. Most biases have completed their projects, and some are leaving for military services, whereas a couple of them are just taking their sweet honey time reviewing script offers. Meanwhile a few are busy with fan meetings. Damn those fan meet tours. And the good shows are coming to an end one week after another. Aish. Not happy. Not happy at all.
Here we have it—The anticipated CNN Talk Asia coverage interview on Gong Yoo. It is indeed an interesting interview presented with a different perspective by CNN.
Gong Yoo is the cover face of June issue of Esquire. He is well-known in his own household after the success of Coffee Prince, but now he is propelled to popularity outside of South Korea through blockbuster movies Train to Busan and The Age of Shadows, and hit drama, Goblin.
Snap! Here are our 53th Baeksang Art Award winners.
Frankly, it was the most boring Baeksang I had seen. I get bored from time to time watching these award shows because of the language barrier; however, this year’s Baeksang was boredom on a whole new level. It began at the red carpet where not one single star *wow* the floor. The dresses were all a big MEH.
I was contemplating of quitting the live streaming if it were not of Park Bo Gum with his little *BLUR* but cute stunt, and later the three crabs moves. After this, the show did get a little bit more interesting since it was time to announce the Best Actor and Actress awards.
The vicious cycle starts again with 53th Baeksang Art Awards as they recently release the nomination lists. Almost every year I go on a rampage at the results for South Korea’s Award Shows, but I can’t ignore because I am a sucker for seeing stars dressing up prettily on the red carpet. I love seeing biases or drama couples I adore reunite and appear together for their nominated projects. This year’s Baeksang is as highly anticipated as 2014’s when I was infatuated with You Who Came From the Star.
Let’s take a look at the nominees for this year. I have chosen my winners in light blue, hehe.
I don’t like the beginning of 2017 because it’s so god damn dull, and it’s still god damn dull. *CRY*
The Maxim Kanu commercial that Gong Yoo shot in Sydney, Australia is released. Amazing the CF turns out so well when behind the scenes there were so much crowd and staff around watching him work. It would be so difficult to concentrate, but he’s look mighty handsome in it. There were many spoiler pictures on SNS for this ad because he was mobbed and stalked very badly that few days.
Just when we thought he’s done shooting, he’s spotted in Sydney again today! This time his schedule was all hush-hush. Nobody knew he flew out of South Korea or when he landed in Sydney until he was caught on camera in a café and at Sydney University.
AAAHHHHH~ my 939 years old dokkaebi hubby, Gong Yoo. How I have missed him! Right after wrapping up Goblin, he jumps right into doing a photoshoot for Discovery Expedition with magazine High Cut. The photoshoots turn out well, too.
I never intended to love Goblin, but with the stellar casts and the excellent performances they put into the show, I got addicted. Soon enough, I started experiencing withdrawal symptoms, albeit it came belatedly because I had to digest that ridiculous ending. So now, I’m just happy to see a smiling Shin / Gong Yoo on my screen.
How awesome was episode 13 of Goblin last week despite having us bawling along with Eun Tak? Pretty awesome how the story turned out in my opinion. As we reach the near end of the drama, so are the soundtracks. To end with a bang, tvN is releasing the Original Sountrack that consist not only the already released OST singles, it is also including the background music / themes from the drama. In total, we will get 16 tracks in the album. Hmm, what’s new? Wait, of course there is more!
