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”....
Surplus Princess, Episodes 5-10: A Rushed but Reasonable Ending Written by Laverne On October 16, 2014
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 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 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. ...

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. ...

Princess Hwapyeong (played by Yoo Jin in a fat suit) thinks she”s met the man of her dreams, only to realize that she”s so horribly overweight and unlovable that he has no interest in her, and has even resorted to checking out other women. Princess Hwapyeong, being a princess and at least making an effort at being a kind person, attempts to save the marriage and her husband by undergoing a weight loss regimen.
This is, to be clear, a comedy. The tone for that is set well enough early on whe Princess Hwapyeong attempts to do dignified princess stuff only for it to fail because, well, she”s not that kind of princess. Nor is it that kind of costume drama- in its most inspired moments, “Drama Special – Hwapyeong Princess”s Weight Loss” does montages coupled with modern rap music. The blending of old and new is about as weird and it sounds, and makes for the drama”s greatest appeal. ...
