The Top Kdrama Crushes Of 2017

Who I crushed on in 2017. Who made you swoon?

Ji Soo

Guk Doo ya…we fell in love with his dark and brooding Bok Dong way back when on Angry Mom, the lovelorn prince on Scarlet Heart, and that earnest meathead on Page Turner. Ji Soo continued to break hearts as the second lead (sigh) on Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.

Jang Ki Yong

Full disclosure: pretty sure most of Jang Ki Yong’s draw is because he looks so…tall. Throw him in a uniform and GAME. OVER. The very tall and very handsome actor popped up in Go Back Couple, crushing on Jang Na Ra’s character something fierce.

Park Seo Joon

PSJ had a good year, that 2017. There was feature film Midnight Runners,  co-starring Kang Ha Neul, there was Fight My Way, with solid chemistry between him and co-star Kim Ji Won. (And there was that time he took off his shirt.) And yes, there was that Hwarang which people seem to want to forget. You can catch him these days on Youn’s Kitchen Season 2 – hellloooo PSJ speaking to me in Spanish. Swoon.

Woo Do Hwan

If anything, 2017 was the year of Woo Do Hwan. He was the bona fide breakout star of Save Me, with an enviable onscreen presence and charisma to match. He then took on an even bigger role in Mad Dog opposite Yoo Ji Tae (for which he snagged a 2017 KBS Best New Actor Award).

Yang Se Jong

As a relative newcomer to our kdrama screens (and hearts, heh), Yang Se Jong took on his first leading role in 2017, opposite Seo Hyun Jin (Let’s Eat 2, Another Oh Hae Young) in Temperature Of Love. Although its strong start and notable kiss scene couldn’t save the show from its later lukewarm tension and dragging storylines, the thesp held his own as headstrong, naive-in-love chef.

Korean Films Now Streaming: “Socialphobia,” “New Trial,” and “One Way Trip” [August 2017]

The latest Korean films streaming. Enjoy.

Socialphobia (2015)

“Socialphobia” is a gritty indie film starring Byun Yo Han (who blew up – along with the rest of the cast – in Misaeng), Ryu Jun Yeol (from Lucky Romance, Reply 1988), and Lee Joo Seung (The Producers, Let’s Eat 2). Find it on DramaFever.

New Trial (2017)

Because Dongju: Portrait Of A Poet left us all wanting more. Or at least have something with KHN to hold us over until his other movie finally hits US soil. “New Trial” stars Jung Woo and Kang Ha Neul, along with Lee Dong Hwi (Reply 1988, Entourage). Now on Viki.

One Way Trip (2016)

Dark coming-of-age tale appropriately told with some of kdrama’s already familiar up-and-comers.  Ryu Jun Yeol, Ji Soo, Suho, Kim Hee Chan. Because we’re still upset from seeing Ji Soo get rejected not once, twice, or thrice, but a fourth time. Probably even more. DramaFever’s got it.

Honorable Mention: Bleak Night, quite possibly my favorite indie flick, is now on DramaFever. You’re welcome.

BTS!: Behind-The-Scenes of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

Dang, cuteness abounds even when the cameras aren’t rolling.

Another BTS treat!

Park Bo Young.

Ji Soo.

Park Hyung Sik. That time Park Hyung Sik was in drag.

Let’s take a look at those behind-the-scenes shenanigans of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, shall we?

 

And one more.
