Hello

Yup, nursing school began on Monday and to say the least, I’m very overwhelmed and stressed. Well, it’s not like it’s unexpected since the program is three years compacted into one. I have to wake up before sunrise and there’s barely enough time to eat and sleep.

I’m sad that I can’t blog as often as before since blogging and talking about k-drama and entertainment with people who share the same interest is fun. I’ll still check the blog and respond to comments and questions but updates/new entries will be infrequent. Also, if you come across any good new shows or interesting entertainment tibits, please do share them with me using the comment option on this entry or the shoutbox feature. Thanks in advance.

In the mean time, there are a gazillion of entertainment blogs out there for your reading pleasure. Some are excellent, while others are… Anyway, the good ones are on the side, under “blogroll.” Enjoy!

p.s. Hi chel and Jill! Thanks for dropping by and for the warm wish.

Lee Dong Wook Update

According to the latest drama news, Lee Dong Wook will no longer be leading the upcoming SBS drama Bad Couple. Instead, Park Sang Min will take over the role. (I just read other news which state that PSM isn’t the actor who will replace LDW, but I’m not sure.)

Special thanks to yeohweping for the info

Although I didn’t know who the leading actress would be, I was looking forward to this drama because of LDW. Is he busy with filming new cfs or traveling to other countries for promotional activities? Apparently, I read from soompi.com that the reason LDW pulled out of the project was because the script/storyline of the drama doesn’t allow him much room and screen time to demonstrate his ability. I guess his management company tried to negotiate with the production company but they wouldn’t budge; hence, he’s not going to be working on Bad Couple.

Secondly, Dong Wook was involved in a “scandal” with Hyun Young (his co-star in The Strongest Romance) over something that he said jokingly when the cast and crew of the movie went out for drinks. A fellow Mukgu-er gave me the low down of said incident and really, what he said wasn’t that big of a deal; it just got blown way out of proportion. DW did apologized for his action, which again, I don’t think was that serious. However, he took responsibility for it and I admire him for that.

Dong Wook sshi, we hope you feel better soon! We will wait patiently for your next project.

I love his new haircut! It really makes him look younger and less feminine.
