Challenge: Day 4 – Favorite Actor & Actress

Ahh! This is an IMPOSSIBLE question that cannot be answered. However, I will valiantly attempt despite the unfeasibility of this while pulling out all my hair and drenching my keyboard with tears! (That last part may have been a slight exaggeration)

Favorite Actors:

Korea: Lee Joon-Ki

I think it’s only fair to choose Lee Joon-Ki, after all I’ve seen him in half-a-dozen dramas (though I didn’t finish them all, but it wasn’t because of Joon-Ki!). I wasn’t extremely taken with him when I first watched him but he grows on you until you can’t deny how good he is. He just brings so many emotions to his roles and makes you root for his characters every time.

 Japan: Sato Takeru

Sato Takeru played Rurouni Kenshin in the three Rurouni films. It’s very difficult for actors to play sweet or naïve characters without coming off as unintelligent or dimwitted but for me Sato Takeru effortlessly portrays innocence, just as he does maturity. I recently watched him in a J-drama and loved his character portrayal.

China: Wallace Huo

I admit it. I’ve only seen one drama with Wallace Huo. But I do want to see more and hopefully will. He’s one of those actors that has that natural, angst-filled intensity much like Richard Armitage.

Taiwan: Roy Chiu

Okay, so I’ve only seen Roy Chiu in one drama also. But he was seriously adorable in it and really the ideal “boy-next-door” actor.

Favorite Actresses:

Korea: Gong Hyo-Jin

Aww, Gong Hyo-Jin, so perfect with her sweet, mild voice, her adorable smile and overall charm. I just love her acting to pieces. She always makes the perfect heroine.

Japan: Rinko Kikuchi

For a Japanese actress I like, I think Rinko Kikuchi is a good choice. I’ve only seen her in Pacific Rim but she really shone in that role and I’d like to see her in more in the future.

China: Zhang Ziyi

Who doesn’t love Zhang Ziyi? Technically, she’s a Chinese film actress as she’s never acted in a drama. She’s stunning and always brings an intense emotional undercurrent to her characters even when playing icy personalities. She’s got to be a real life princess.

Taiwan: Alice Ke

Alice Ke is so adorable! She has that natural “girl-next-door” vibe and a down-to-earth feel that I really like (and can be hard to find) in actresses. 


  1. Lee Joon-Ki - oh yes, I think he is the only reason to watch historical dramas, I wouldn't have watch if he wasn't there.

    Wallace Huo - another wonderful actor, although whenever I watch him in a drama, his voice is always dubbed so I'm never quite sure how he really sounds, but I did sort of watch some clips with his real voice & it sounded good, though I can't remember now.

    I can't really tell you my favorite as I'm not quite sure how to spell their names so I won't try.

    hope you have a lovely day.

    1. Lee Joon-Ki definitely got me to watch quite a few historical dramas I probably wouldn't have otherwise. ;)

      Whaaa? His voice was dubbed? I guess I should know that - I mean I was aware that they dub a lot of the voices in C-dramas (especially the kids; they always sound the worst), however I didn't realize his voice was dubbed. Oh my word; now I need to know what his real voice sounds like!!

      I didn't know many of these names either, lol, I just looked up the dramas and found their names so I totally understand.

      Thank you! Have a beautiful day as well. :D

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
