Yes, I guess that is part of the reason why they chose K-actors instead of T-actors. It kind of makes me sad because I already had some T-actors in mind to play Ren and Sho.Quote:

Anybody familiar with the show 1 Night 2 Days? I've seen clips of it on youtube (it's got Lee Seung Gi in it) and it's ridiculous, it's hilarious, I love it!
sadly I can't find any good sites of the first season online. I found a website that only showed the first parts of the episode and the rest of the links on it were ads!
Still, those fragments that I watched were unbelievably hilarious!
EDIT: I kept watching bits and pieces on Youtube. This show is really unbelievable! It seems you can't also find complete episodes on Youtube, maybe the KBS police is on the prowl.

And I kindly invite you to >> http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...Gu-Family-Book
Korean reality shows are funny and stupid, easily enjoyable. I've only seen few episodes of Running Man (obviously episodes with Seung Gi in it, muahaha) and 1N2D.
Talking about Joo Won, he's gonna come back in a new drama... And Won Bin too, looks like a comeback is scheduled soon.
For those who are interested, some information to the new dramas that have already started or will be released in the near future:
Dating Agency: Cyrano
The Queen's Classroom
I hear your voice
Anybody watched the newest adaptation of Itazura na Kiss? A new J-drama titled Itazura na Kiss ~ Love in TOKYO. I was just too curious about why this manga got 5 drama adaptations so far, so I checked the newest one... I was rather annoyed constantly in each episode but somehow still wanted to watch more. And that brings me to episode 10, in which I was totally sold to the lead actor Furukawa Yuki. Been thinking about it since I watched it yesterday, repeating the scenes, and hunting for the couple photos together! *__* /crazyfangirlmodeon
ah yeah started reading the manga some five years ago, but when I found out the manga was incomplete because of the death of the mangaka, I didn't want to get invested. :/ Although the first few volumes I read were really interesting.
So I opted for the anime, where they said they offered quite a good alternative ending, but I was not able to find good quality copies of, so I dropped it too.
But you know, I was already familiar with the story so I really wanted to watch somehow. Then I heard it had a Taiwanese/Cantonese? live action- so I tried watching that- but I didn't like how the actors looked, so I dropped it after the first episode.
Maybe there is hope yet! When you say there's a new Japanese adaptation out-- maybe I'll watch that!
After I finish Shining Inheritance. I know, I'm so late in watching this show- but it's because I needed more Lee Seung Gi fixes. Very slow pace, this drama, considering it has 30 episodes... I'm still at ep 10 where balls finally start rolling. -_- But it's kind of like a slow torture.
Btw, may I ask what was it that annoyed about the first 9 episodes, phio-chan?
You are so tempting me to watch this J-drama, phio-chan!!Quote:
I’m currently watching GFB and enjoying every minute of it. I’m also planning to watch “Arang and the Magistrate” and “Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang”. About the latter, I watched it a long time ago but I never finished watching it and since I don’t remember what was the last episode I watched and I don’t remember the story very well I’ve decided to watch the series from the very first ep.
The anime is very good, and the ending is very sweet. If you like this story, I would definitely recommend you watching the anime.Quote:
That is another series that is part of my must-watch list. So many awesome dramas, so little time!Quote:

regarding Arang, I tried but I couldn't get past episode 4. It kind of bored me, or more like, too many cultural references. Or whatever, I couldn't really pinpoint, but it didn't hook me.
I also tried DGHC, since it was by the Hong Sisters, but when I started I didn't expect it to look so old lol. I couldn't get past the fashion sense... haha. I barely held it together by finishing My Girl, which was released a year after DGHC i think? Even then the fashion sense was so old
I have watched DGHC before so I know I’ll like it. And yeah, even though it is not that old it does look a tad old in some aspects. For instance, the cell phones.Quote:
Eh... 10 episodes to go on Shining Inheritance.
Seriously, what an investment of time! (30 friggin eps is killing me)
Ahem. My review so far:
It's very slow, pace-wise, especially in the first um... 12 episodes? ahaha.
Also, it's your typical cinderella/chaebol story, with young masters and inheritance shenanigans *cough* title *cough*.
But! I'm still watching because
1- The consistency of the characters are great. Bravo. Once you get to understand how each of their personalities work, it does get predictable but it's also fun to watch how they stay so true to the character they've fleshed out.
2- It's so entertaining to see character developments, as a followup to no. 1. So fun to see them digging their own graves, deeper and deeper in the shitz episode per episode. So fun to watch how from innocence, these people gain motive and their hearts turn black by the day, you get to see how their own doings corrupt their souls and drive each other crazy.
3- And as a followup to no. 1 and 2, as you get invested in their corruption, you'll want to see how karma will take its toll on such evil plots, and will root and root for might I add, the awesome heroine. You'll want to see her triumph over evil, you'll want to see how vengeance is carried out.
So yeah, I'm pretty much hooked.
It depends on each viewer's taste, but from other comments on MDL and DramaCrazy, people seem to like this new adaptation of InK just fine. They like the Korean one the least, but the best one seems to be the Taiwanese version. I'm not planning to check other adaptation but the current Japanese one, though. Furukawa Yuki <33333333
Shining Inheritance is a slow torture, I agree. Even watching GFB is a torture waiting for the romance, so it's definitely worse with SI. But I don't regret watching it, I totally enjoyed my first Lee Seung Gi drama. I fell in love with him ever since. <3
The worst annoying part is on episode 1, to be honest.
But episode 10 alone is enough as a payback for all those annoying episodes, lol. I even downloaded the whole series!
Lee Seung gi, where have your choco abs gone?
I think people find the Taiwanese version the best because it covered the whole story and because it remained pretty faithful to the canon material.Quote:
After reading your guys’ comments, I’m not so sure about watching that drama anymore…Quote:
I watched the first episode and it was great! The cute moments and the funny moments were awesome!! And that ending, it was hilarious!!Quote:
AAAARGH!!! Gu Family Book!!! So Frustrating!!!
Why did you have to end that way???
Last 2-3 episodes really dragged the entire show down!! I was played with, mind-fucked! Robbed of what could have been a precious Lee Seung Gi drama
