Just a quick update to let you all know that I am alive and also I have a new header rotating itself around at dramabeans :) :) :) Please take a look!!! —>>>

(Kindly click on image to see the full res. file of the banner… saaankuu! ^_^)


It’s Go Soo on the left and Kang Dong Won on the right. What do these two pretty faces have to do with each other? They teamed up in the 2010 film directed by Kim Min Suk, Haunters (aka Psychics,) which I’ve been dying to see before production even began. However, to this day, my DVD stores continue to want to charge me $27.99 for a copy. Really? Hontouni ? *shakes head* *wags index finger* “Nuh, nuh, nuh, jicksypops doesn’t do that.”~~ (As usual, economical pointers to where I can watch it would be muchly appreciated. I will repay you in… an onslaught of new blog posts, ahahahaha.)

The only encounter I’ve had with Go Soo is through the film Into The White Night. To put it nicely, the movie was underwhelming in comparison to its chillingly brilliant, predecessing J-dorama counterpart so I’ve never really sought out to further investigate the actor’s filmography and/or dramaography.

That indeed might be a good thing because I have enough actors that I am working on (and struggling— but enjoying! :D :D) being a completist for. And Kang Dong Won is one of them. I’m not even sure if I have ever mentioned how much I friggin’ love him but hear me now— I would not even think twice about mothering the beautiful man’s babies.

Duelist was the first film I watched of his, and while I got that it was very visually beautiful and dynamically poetic, I never really quite connected with the plot or the characters.

But then I watched Temptations Of Wolves (aka Romance Of Their Own,) and the rest is friggin’ history. Once you get past the incestual thing— no, wait, Kang Dong Won will make you get past the incestual thing (huh ? What incestual thing, you ask? Nothing graphic, just, still, nah, ’tis not great…)— how do I explain it… you will get that feeling as if you are crossing paths with a the teeniest, tiniest, fluffy little stray kitten… you will want to take him home and give him all your love.

As much as I love him, I’m not blind enough to say that he is the most perfect, most refined artist in terms of acting skill… but he is most definitely on his way. He is no doubt one of the best of his generation. Can’t wait ’til the Korean government returns him. X

Until then, here is a picture of Kang Dong Won shi I found in my, er, treasure chest *clears throat*, with a fellow actor who I feel like is walking a very similar career path, the equally serious-about-acting, just as beautiful, Won Bin shi (btw, I have no recollection of how I sourced this image in the first place so if you believe I owe you or someone else a credit, or you would like me to remove the picture, please gimme a holla.)


My question is, just how unlucky do you have to be, to be the girl caught in the middle..? *spazzmatic left eyebrow twitch*


P.S. I know I have no right to ask for anyone’s trust again so believe me only if you will— I do hope never to abandon my blog for such a long time again. m(_ _)m

P.P.S. I sincerely hope everyone has been well and happy :-)
