“The Inheritors”, I’m ready for you!

th_1-225x300

After my beloved Ji Sub amused me with his cold but appealing role in Master’s Sun, I’m finally ready for some Lee Min Ho lovin’. And to add to that, Park Shin Hye is joining in too! What more can you ask? Well, actually, there’s more because Kim Woo Bin and Kang Min Hyuk will be at the party also! Whew!

I’m so excited on how Min Ho and Shin Hye will take us on a roller coaster ride in this 20-episoder drama SBS is presenting us. It is being described as Gossip Girl-esque as the story would revolve around the privileged and uber-rich elitists. What other role could fit our beloved Minho best but a rich son of a business tycoon and Shin Hye, the ever gorgeous damsel in distress. I’m clenching my fists in thrill!

Am I the only one excited here?

Be at home on October 9 everyone.

Master’s Sun is on my Radar!

Master's Sun

Last August 7, So Ji Sub came back and took over the Wednesdays and Thursdays time slot previously occupied by “I Can Hear Your Voice” with actress Gong Hyo Jin.

This drama series is one of the much-awaited dramas for so many fans of one of the most sought after actor in Korea. Master’s Sun is Ji Sub’s come back to the small screen after his movie “A Company Man” which was released last October 2012.

And it was just recently that I finally got a glimpse of what Ji Sub has to offer this time. He was known for acting all serious, scarred, fierce and sexy from his previous dramas and movies. This time, he plays as Joo Joong Won, a CEO with so much greed for money, cold and distant due to a traumatic past.

Ji Sub gives off a comedic feel into this drama making it his “almost” first shot in doing a RomCom Drama. It is like a breath of fresh air for me as he really dived into ROMANTIC COMEDY! Exactly the same how many other actors took their shots in RomCom like Song Seung Hoon, Cha Seung Won and a whole lot more.

Adding to that, what makes this drama more interesting is that this is a fusion of comedy, drama and horror all together with the love story between Joong Won and Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin). It makes oh-so excited how will Joong Won contribute to Gong Shil in shaking off her weirdness despite all the horror happening around them.

After watching 4 episodes, I got totally hooked and made me crazy wanting for more! I actually ended up watching Cain and Abel “again”! That maked Ji Sub my August man! Dang, I so want a co-worker like him in the hospital. I’d gladly agree to a whole month On-Call duty if he’s the resident!

I don’t think I can say more! It’s a given that Ji Sub-dramas are always “Daebak”!

Master’s Sun airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:55pm on SBS.

Here’s the long trailer!
