Tag Archives: Jang Geun Suk

Jang Geun Suk will be coming back to KBS in a miniseries called Mary Stayed out all Nightwhich is based on a manhwa that was written by the same creator of the Full House manhwa.

Although the character was originally described as the vocalist of a death metal band, now he’s been tweaked to be a free-spirited hippie who’s the lead vocalist of an indie band. His rival in the love triangle is his complete opposite: a perfect type of guy with a good background and prestigious education. For 100 days, Mary will have an “imaginary marriage” (as in simulated) with both guys; the exact circumstances remain unclear but it intrigues me.

Jang Geun-seok said, “Because Mary Stayed Out All Night is about music, I felt more burden in choosing it. I thought that I might be fixing my image with musician roles. [But] I read the synopsis and script and found it so fun that I was strongly drawn to it. In particular, I grew more and more attached to the character of Mu-gyul, who lives a bohemian lifestyle. Living a non-mainstream life, he has pain from his childhood that he tries not to show on the outside, and I found him very human and appealing.”

For the lead role of Mary, rumors popped up recently that Moon Geun-young was considering it, but no decisions have been made. It would be lovely to see her in a romantic comedy, though.

Writing the drama will be Goong and Love & Marriage‘s In Eun-ah, while directing isHong Seok-gu of last year’s lauded short drama Kyung-sook, Kyung-sook’s Father as well as the inaugural Drama Special episode, Red Candy.

Review: There is no doubt that You’re Beautiful is one of the most famous Korean Drama not only in Korea but internationally. What made this popular is their A.N.JELL actions toward Go Mi Nam. All the members fell in love with “him” knowing that he is a boy. Go Mi Nam looks great together with all the members; however he only loves one person and that is Hwan Tae Kyung the “bad boy” considering that he is part of A.N.JELL. Moving on; is You’re Beautiful a must watch to me its okay. You don’t have to watch it. I am really picky when it comes to these things and to me you won’t die if you don’t watch it. The problems they had to go through and the solutions are very predictable, actually the whole show is very predictable. There is not much tension in the end when they show you what will happen in the next episode because you already knew that it was going to happen. There is also weird things in this show. An example is when Hwang Tae Kyung got lost in the forest and Go Mi Nam was looking for him. If you want to know what happens then watch it or leave a comment below. :p. All in all to me You’re Beautiful is just an ordinary Korean Drama period. What I liked better is The 1st shop of Coffee Prince. I also have a review on that so please do take a look. The story is a little bit the same.

Acting: the acting is generally good. especially FT Island Lee Hong Ki. He is an amazing actor. I almost felt as if he were a real person and what I mean by that is that his character. Lee Hong Ki is one of the best actor that first debuted as a singer. Great job. All the actors are very good. Great job.

Ramil Solis opinion: I agree with you. Lee Hong Ki is really a revelation as if his character is really moving in your world. I actually like the scene where Go Mi Nam and Jeremy rode a bus and Jeremy rendered a song to her. Such a heart-felt song and I really felt sad for him, as if he is my friend who lost the girl he loves.
