i still prefer watching my dvd than hearing JJH speak tagalog  ;D  although it would be nice to view it in widescreen  ::)

hahahaha! it would be fun though to hear how they would dub it though. and see if they would name JJH's character, coz as far as i recall, her character wasnt named in the movie.   ;D

copying my post from the Most Recently Viewed DVD thread  ;D




Innocent Steps

was interested in this movie because I thought it would be like a korean version of Strictly Ballroom. It started like Strictly Ballroom, the man is a pro teaching a newbie girl dancer. But it's more of a love story afterwards, not much of dance competition scenes. still, it's recommended for those who likes to watch love stories  ;D  especially if you're fond of Moon Geun-Young

I finished Hotelier - recommended  ;) ;) ;)



and My Name is Kim Sam Soon - recommended   :) :) :)



  There is something in here that really stuck in my head or is it in my heart that I don't know.
   I felt something I can not describe that made my whole Sunday just thinking or do nothing.
   I felt somehow what possibly the guy was feeling.  :-[   drama ko.... Jologs  pa la akoang talaga
   or hopelessly romantic.  ;D ;D ;D

Finished "I'm sorry, I love you."




   :'( :'( :'( hu hu hu - recommended if you want to cry. At first, I though medyo parang hindi ata maganda.
  pero,  after episode 4, addictive na yung story and when the story almost end and I though tapos na ang   iyakan, pina kabahan nanaman yung puso ko dun sa last scene.

My heart is still aching. I went to work heart broken. Maga yung mata namin kakaiyak. Buti nalang hindi ako pinagtatawanan ng misis ko.  :-[

I'll stop muna borrowing Korean dvds. Magkaka heart attack ako. e meron pa naman na ipapahiram sa akin na Autumn in my heart and stairways to heaven. Ayoko na muna.  :'( :'( :'( :-[

Finished Wonderful Life



  - ok lang, not as good as the previous series we watched.
     Sabi maganda pa raw ito sa My Name is Kim., pero hindi ko sya ganong type, maybe this series is best for the fans of Eugene.

Really? I hope matuloy.
Would like to see how Keanu and Sandra will play the role.

Wow! Really? I'm also looking forward to watch that film... I do hope they'll continue with that cast. I love Keanu Reeves' and Sandra Bullock's team (or Charlize Theron. hehe. ;D)

hehe... I'm one of you guyz.. hehe...

Since you loved My Sassy Girl, try catching Crazy First Love.  ::) You might also like it. Remember Gyunwoo? His also the leading man on this film. Its genre is also love and comedy. As usual, Gyunwoo gets the crazy part again. Unlike in tne My Sassy film, Gyunwoo is twice more wackier and wilder on this film.  ;D

Oh yeah, I might forget... Have you heard of Windstruck? Some people say that it's a prequel of My Sassy Girl. I'm just not sure about it but it also have some connections in some parts.Check also this film out. The characters on My Sassy are also the one on this film. It's kind of serious compared to My Sassy but its also good.

Ei, do you want a korean film like so close? Put also on your list My Wife Is a Gangster. The girl there is sooo coolll!! It's a comedy and a karate thing. hehe. I was actually entertained with the stunts and the leading girl. I actually loved the first one. the My Wife is a gangster 2 is not that good so just check out the first one. harhar. Well, I hope you'll like it because my cousin who is kind of choosey on the films he watch didn't like it.  ;)

Oh my... I'm sorry... I should have posted all my messages as one... I remembered something kasi after I have posted it.

Anyway, I'm actually not only into Korean films and tv series but also into Japanese and Taiwanese. Haha. I've just finished watching A Promise of Love at the Dolphin Bay nga eh.  ;D ;D ;D

Here's the catch: Last last month, I finished watching the Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO) Live. It's a Jap TV series. I highly recommend you to watch this. Its concept was from its anime series. It's really really good. I'm pretty sure you'll like the story because the people whom I recommended the tv series loved it and some even burned it for their copy. One of my classmates even slept 4 am in the morning because she can't stop watching it. I tell you, the plot is pretty unique. There even came a time that I said to myself that the scriptwriter of GTO live must be really bright to have come up with such story.  ::) ;D :D I promise you, you won't regret watching it....  ;D

your post is kind of out of topic, since this is a korean movie/series discussion  ::)  but thanks for recommending GTO Live. i didn't know they made a series based from the anime. i wonder how onizuka look like  ;D

For those who loves a twisted serious love story... try watching BUNGEE JUMPING ON THEIR OWN. The first part of the story is actually boring because it's a "from the past" sort of thing. But when you reach the mid part to the end, it's actually shocking - a really unique one! I never watched anything like this. hehe.

I forgot the name of the actors. But if you're watching the ALL IN chinovela (would I say, Korean novela) shown in Qtv channel 11 (7:30pm Mon-Fri), he's also the main character.  ::)

Me and my cousins just finished watching korean films. Among the films I've watched, I liked INNOCENT STEPS. Watch it. It's a new released film - 2005. The lead character is also the actress from My Little Bride and The Tale of Two Sisters.  She acts better on this film.

what if modern korea were a constitutional monarchy with a king? you get a comedy/drama series called princess hours (goong). unique setting but still the same old story. adorable cute girl falls for an a**hole guy, in this story an a** prince. and as usual the lead actress makes it interesting to watch and carries the show. im still on the 11th episode out of 24. so hoping this one would've a different ending for the characters.

btw, in some angles, the lead actress yoon eun hae resembles jeon ji-hyun, as long as she doesnt show her two front teeth  ;D
