Common-looking face Is The Charm of Nam Joo Hyuk In "Surplus Princess"

On October 19th, the MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment Relay” has a quick interview with the up-and-coming actor, fashion model Nam Joo Hyuk at the Seoul Fashion Week.
After this interview was released last week, it has been drawing attention of online communities.

When the reporter asked Joo Hyuk, “Which is better: living in the dorm or walking on the fashion show runway?” Without batting eyelash, the famous model immediately replied that, “The runway, I don’t like the dorm, it’s not for me”. Then, the reporter continued heating up the air by the interesting question, “What do you you think about your charm?”. This time, Joo Hyuk surprised both interviewer and viewers by his glib answer, “I think it’s my common-looking face. Many people told me that they have seen a lot of face like me before”....

With news that Surplus Princess‘s episode order had been cut from 14 to 10, viewers were understandably worried. It didn’t help that the news came out just as episode 8 was about to air, meaning that the the production team had to scramble to tie up loose ends in less than two weeks.

At the time of the announcement, the big question was whether the Surplus Princess team would try to continue the Ha-ni/Hyun-myung pairing or place her with Si-kyung. ...

The Princess and the Idiot: Behind every good man is a great woman

The Princess and the Idiot: Behind every good man is a great woman

The story of Ondal the Idiot and Princess Pyeonggang of Goguryeo may seem strange or even implausible at times. As a result, the tale is often viewed as a historical folktale about a man”s rise from destitution to greatness and the woman who had the wisdom to believe in his potential.

A Stubborn Princess
The tale begins in the royal palace of King Pyeongwon of Goguryeo, who ruled from 559 to 590. Among his children was Princess Pyeonggang, a chronic crybaby whose crying was so persistent and got on the king”s nerves so much that he often threatened to marry her off to Ondal the Idiot if she didn”t stop. Ondal was an infamous beggar who lived outside the palace gates and was reportedly as ugly as a donkey. He was often seen begging for food for himself and his blind mother. His ugliness, dirty clothes, and seemingly foolish behavior earned him the ridicule of everyone who knew him, as well as the nickname “The Idiot”. ...

Prince Hodong and Princess Nakrang: A tragic love in a time of war

Prince Hodong was the handsome and intelligent first son of King Daemusin from the Goguryeo Kingdom (37 BCE–668 CE), one of the ancient Three Kingdoms of Korea located in the northern and central parts of the Korean Peninsula. The 20-year old Hodong was very popular among his people due to his vibrant, enthusiastic and cheerful personality.

One day, the prince competed in a hunting contest and caught a white deer, which symbolized a godly creature. Coincidently, he met King Choe Ri of Nakrang, a kingdom which was allied with China”s Han Dynasty (206 BCE–220 CE). The king discovered the sparkling charm of Hodong and decided to introduce him to his 18-year-old daughter, Princess Nakrang. The prince fell in love with her at first sight. ...

For Your Viewing Pleasure: Pantone Color Report Fall 2014, Aurora Red Written by Lisa On September 29, 2014

Welcome back to For Your Viewing Pleasure, where we take the time out of the week to share some of the most recent fashion-forward photos tied to the K-pop landscape.

This week is an homage to Pantone Aurora Red. If you haven’t heard of it, the influential Pantone Color Report periodically broadcasts seasonal color trends, taking data from different fashion weeks, and this year, one trend for Fall 2014 is the so-called “Aurora Red.” Now I am not an expert on color algorithms, so some shades of red may be slightly off from the “verve and spark” of the perfect Pantone shade, but I hope you enjoy the nod to a popular reddish fall color nonetheless. ...

Surplus Princess, Episodes 1-4: Mermaids, Magic, and More! Written by Laverne On September 3, 2014

Surplus Princess is only four episodes into its run and already it has become one of the best comedys of the year. Not a single episode goes by where the drama doesn’t manage to elicit laughs whether it is due to Ha-ni’s persona, the roomates’ actions, or the wonderfully-selected soundtrack.

Surplus Princess follows mermaid princess Eileen (Jo Bo-ah) who wishes to become a human. She is obsessed with human things such as food and dramas and most importantly, her “one true love,” Chef Kwan Si-kyung (Song Jae-rim). Eileen enlists the help of the witch Ahn Ma-nyeo (Ahn Gil-gang) to become a human and through her rush to become human drinks a potion with a consequence — she must find true love within 100 days or vanish forever. ...
