2004 KBS Drama Awards : Best Couple Award for Bi and Song Hye Kyo

Review by puccakiss79

Adorable and sweet, Full House is full of great acting and enjoyable characters and brings to life a wonderful story of endearing relationships which compensate its replica episodes. Most notable is the gorgeous Song Hye Kyo and her unwavering performance as the charismatic Han Ji-eun. Also, the story provides surprisingly likeable characters with each having a crafted purpose to contribute to building the plot. Although the latter episodes begin to tie down the drama with repeated cause-and-affect situations, fans of Song Hye Kyo will not be disappointed with her presentation in Full House.

Adding a fresh character to her works, Song Hye Kyo takes front-and-center stage with her performance as Han Ji-eun. Effortlessly, she is able to put aside her renowned performances of old with an adorable giggle and a vibrant smile that even shines through her eyes. She brings realism to the character showing Ji-eun’s aspiration and determination, her laughter and happiness, her foolishness and regret. Undoubtedly, Song Hye Kyo plays this role naturally opposite attractive Bi or Jung Ji-hoon and his fitting performance as Lee Young-jae. Of course, both stars are fortunate to play a part in a drama with well written characters.

The drama is flavored with different types of likeable characters that similarly push the story forward with their foolish actions. First, Ji-eun and Young-jae thoughtlessly enter into a contract marriage even though they obviously loathe each other. Meanwhile, sly-fox Hye-won desperately tries to sustain Young-jae’s companionship despite his marriage. Then, deciding to get involved because of the way Young-jae treats his wife, Min-hyuk knowingly risks their friendships and challenges Young-jae’s love for Ji-eun. Finally, the top tier of this foolish cake is the surprisingly enjoyable friends of Ji-eun, Dong-wook and Hee-jin. These two continuously give the plot momentum with their hasty chatter and clever lies. All in all, the characters’ irrational personalities are balanced with decency and purpose.

Towards the end, the drama slow downs and the foolish love-war relationship between Ji-eun and Young-jae is redundant. Whether she is apologizing for upsetting him and doing the housework to makeup for her actions or he is, the same set up and execution is used for several episodes and begins to get old.

Still, Full House ranks as a must see drama. Song Hye Kyo is a sure hit while the story’s characters are easily revered despite their faults. With a little tolerance for excessiveness, viewers can walk away from Full House with hearts full of contentment.

The music of Full House enhances the audience’s love for its characters. Songs like Why’s ‘Unh Myung (translated to ‘Fate’, track one), Byul’s (Star) I think I (track 4), and even Lim Jung Hee’s ‘Geh Deh Ji Geum’ (not featured on OST) beautifully express Young-jae’s and Ji-eun’s inner struggles. Sung with strong conviction from Young-jae’s position, Unh Myung has tender lyrics, “Like a fool, I’m regretting this late…I wished that it wouldn’t be you.” (KBFD translations) On the other hand, ‘Geh Deh Ji Geum’ and ‘I think I’, speaks of the Ji-eun’s overwhelming feelings. It is lovely music for a lovely drama.

The young man’s name was Lee Hoo (Se7en), more commonly known to his friends as Kang Hoo. Lee Hoo worked as a delivery boy at a Chinese restaurant, and was known for his 7-minute maximum delivery time.

Goong is a story about young love in face of tradition, politics, and intrigue. In the imaginary world, modern-day Korea is a constitutional monarchy and the Royal Family lives in a grand Palace, the Goong. Story opens with the sudden death of the reigning the King. Faced with the decreasing popularity among the public for the Royalty, a grand wedding for the Crown Prince, Lee Shin (Joo Ji Hoon), is decided to be the best publicity move to improve the image of the Royalty and at the same time prepare Shin for immediate succession. The intended bride? The headstrong, awkward, and sweet spirited Shin Chae-kyung (Yoon Eun Hye) that just happens to go to the same exclusive art school. Chae-kyung was betrothed to become the next Crown Princess by her grandfather and Shin’s grandfather.

After 14 years of living in England with his mom, Lee Yul (Kim Jeong Hoon) appears all of a sudden. He is Shin’s cousin as well as the former Crown Prince. Everything seemed to be going normally until Chae-kyung’s optimistic spirit wins the heart of internally lonely, Yul. As the Crown Prince Shin and simple-minded Chae-kyung’s relationship appear to developing deeper feelings, a series of scandals are exposed to the public right after the pair were officially announced married. Will love prevail all in a world of political pressures and martial hardships? Or will being in the spotlight of the public be too much for the young newlyweds to endure?

Akankah Go Mi Nyu dapat terus menyembunyikan identitas dirinya yang sebenarnya adalah seorang wanita? Lalu bagaimana pula jika sebuah ‘bintang’ muncul di dalam hatinya, dan bersinar begitu terang, hingga ia tidak dapat menghindar lagi?

Pendapat Gallery Film Eden

Bagaimana kami harus mengungkapkan dengan kata-kata rasa suka kami terhadap film You’re Beautiful? Drama ini, secara keseluruhan tidak terlalu berbeda dengan drama-drama sekarang yang lucu dan manis. Namun film ini istimewa dalam memberikan humor-humor yang menyegarkan. Film ini banyak menyajikan imajinasi-imajinasi gila yang membuat orang tidak bisa berhenti tertawa. Kami sangat suka dengan karakter tokoh utama laki-laki, Hwang Tae Kyung : gengsinya yang setinggi langit dan sifatnya yang suka seenaknya sendiri membuat cara dia mengungkapkan rasa cintanya menjadi sesuatu yang spesial dan indah. Kemudian ditambah dengan ending yang menyentuh, kami rasa film ini benar-benar layak untuk ditonton.

Although orphaned at a young age, Mu Cheng does not let her past affect her and lives life with great passion and determination. A harmless bet brings the two together and Guang Xi slowly changes as Mu Cheng teaches him how to give and love.

Yan Dao

Desember 13, 2009

Title : 硯道 (Yan Dao)
English Title : A Chinese Ghost Story; The Prequel of Yan Dao
Release Year : 2006
Director : Lam Chi Wai

Description :
An inkstone is a crucial component in the art of Chinese calligraphy. If you think the idea of a television drama series about an inkstone doesn’t sound very appealing, then perhaps the stars attached to it could change your opinion. Handsome Hong Kong singer/actor Daniel Chan shed his gentle, scholarly image (like his Ning Caichen in 2004′s Qian Nu You Hun) to play the rough-hewn master inkstone-smith, Xiao Fei. Hong Kong actress Yvonne Yung (Xiu Niang Lan Xin) and Mainland actor Kou Zhen Hai (Moment in Peking) co-star in the 2006 costume drama Yan Dao, the first TV drama in China about the delicate art of inkstones. The show depicts the tortuous journey taken by a rebellious young man who must learn to make the ultimate inkstone in order to save his father.

Synopsis
When President’s only daughter, Liu Xin Ping, checked into the hospital for her chemotherapy treatment, the head of internal Medicine, Dr. Xu Da-Ming, and the head of surgery, Dr. Tang Guo-Tai, became the core members of the President’s medical team. Both men planned to use this opportunity to prove themselves to be the best person for the hospital director’s position.

Xu advised Liu to have a Central IV implantation to alleviate the discomfort of her treatment. He appointed Dr. Su Yi-Hua, an expert in this type of operation, to perform the surgery. When Tang found out, he was furious that Xu appointed one of his surgeons without his explicit approval. To spite Xu and take credit for the treatment, he replaced Su with Dr. Qiu Qing-Cheng and publicly announced that he himself had performed the surgery. However, this move put himself and the hospital in a very difficult position when Liu developed serious complications after the surgery.

Through out the ordeal, Su tried to maintain his integrity as a doctor by standing up to Tang. His actions created great displeasure in his boss and caused him to be alienated by the entire surgical department.

While Su was experiencing alienation, the woman he loved was also under duress in the hospital. Anesthesiologist Guan Xin was caught in a medical malpractice claim involving hospital director Huang Kai-Yuan. Through Tang, Huang put pressure on Guan to take the blame for the malpractice. Guan refused. In the ensuing media circus, Guan endured pressures from both the hospital and the victim’s family. She learned that it’s difficult to maintain principle in the face of reality.

Tang’s overbearing attitude eventually led to his own downfall and Xu’s rise to power. The shift in power stirred up series of personnel changes, of which, directly impacted the future of Qiu, Su and other members of the surgical department.
