Hyun Bin is The Man

Posted: 01/06/2011 by Asian Ties in Uncategorized

“Secret Garden” is my latest obsession in K-drama. I didn’t know that this drama was slated for 20 episodes so it was bizarre to me watching a sudden twist in Episode 16.

This drama has some good and bad points but the storyline is good enough for me to keep me interested. It helps that Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won are acting in this drama. Can’t believe that this is Hyun Bin’s first romantic comedy since Kim Sam Soon. It was such a long time that I forgot how fun it was to watch him act. Glad that he chose this drama before he enlists himself to the army.

Speaking of our golden boy, Hyun Bin also sang his own version of “That Woman/Man” which is one of the theme songs of this drama and originally sang by Baek Ji-Young. Listen to the two versions and I’m very sure you will love them both :) Read the rest of this entry »

Happy New Year! I hope that 2011 will bring new hope and love to you and your families. Make sure that there is something to look forward to in the coming months. Time flies fast if you haven’t noticed yet.

I missed y’all in December so here’s a recap of my 2010 MV/year end performances I love to watch over and over again. Read the rest of this entry »


One of the disadvantages of being a celebrity is keeping their love life under wraps. It’s true for any country where die hard fans would like to keep their idols for themselves. Sometimes, there are celebrity couples who manage to stay strong amidst the pressure but most of the time the couple would end up breaking up.

Recently, Jong Hyun of South Korea’s boy band SHINEE admitted to having a relationship with the beautiful Se Kyung. For a month now, the two have been dating secretly around Se Kyung’s neighborhood. In the end they had to get out as they couldn’t hide their love anymore. I’m hoping for the best as they make a lovely couple.

Another couple who I would like to see get out in the open if they are indeed in a relationship are Choi Seung Hyun (TOP) and Sandara Park of the South Korean bands Big Bang and 2NE1.

We wrote earlier that 2NE1 performed their new song It Hurts live in SBS Inkigayo today. For those who haven’t seen it yet, here’s the link again it-hurts-2ne1

Now, YG released the much anticipated music video of the song. A photo teaser was released on 10/30 and you can see Dara sporting an eerie look.

The music video for It Hurts will be their 4th from their ToAnyone album alone. I remember G-Dragon and Taeyang of Big Bang from the same company released 3 music videos last year and this year respectively for their solo albums. YG surely knows how to give back to his artists’ fans.

Dara of 2NE1 is the main actress in this MV and acted along side Lee Soo Hyuk. I’m not sure if she is scary looking gal but I enjoyed every bit of it. I want Dara and Soo Hyuk in a drama. There is a chemistry between these two. Take a look. Read the rest of this entry »
