K-drama Fun: Dream Show & Cast Pt. 2


My second K-drama dream casting!

This time I have a favorite movie that I think needs a K-drama rendition! (After all, there’s already a Bollywood version!)

KNIGHT AND DAY

June Havens is flying home when she unknowingly crosses paths with a secret agent, Roy Miller. When the CIA think June’s assisting Roy, she ends up on the run with him. Despite her constant questioning if Roy is really dangerous or not, the twosome fall in love amidst car chases, shoot-outs, secret hideaways and dangerous train rides.

This is one of my favorite rom-coms! It’s a hilarious blend of action spy flick with zany romantic comedy! The movie has a lot of great, entertaining moments with most of them revolving around the ever-mysterious and adorably-polite secret agent Roy Miller. I think the cast is extremely important as it could make or break the show. Tom Cruise was essentially the glue of the original film, not only because of his solid acting but because of his previous work in spy films. I mean when you think spy, who doesn’t think Mission Impossible? Which is why choosing the right actor for Roy Miller is very important…

My Dream Cast


Roy Miller – For the character of Roy Miller, my casting choice would be Ji Sung! A fabulous actor with loads of solid performances under his belt, Ji Sung has a knack for comedy (Kill Me, Heal Me anyone?) that would be perfect for this show!! I could totally see him bringing the deadly side of Roy kicking secret agent butt as well as his sweet and adorable side! Oh man, now I want this so bad.

Runner up choices –

Lee Joon-Ki – I mean who can’t see Joon-Ki playing a hot secret agent? Also I’d like to see him come in more touch with his comedic side. I mean, he’s played emotional and tortured enough times (though he’s so good at it, we probably don’t want him to stop, haha).


June Havens Lee Yoon-Ji. I’ve always felt that Yoon-Ji was greatly underrated as an actress. She’s been in dozens of dramas, but usually with a supporting role. Her most notable dramas are Dream High, King 2 Hearts, Goong. I think she’d be awesome as the classic romantic heroine!

Runner up choices –

Kim Seul-Gi. Seul-Gi would be hilarious in the role of June! I could totally see her bringing the zany side of a “normal” person suddenly thrown into secret agent shenanigans. It’s just the 10-year gap between her and Ji Sung, and the fact that she looks younger than her actual age (25) that makes me pause. I think they could sell it though!

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
Ahem.
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…
