AINyeong haseYOO SIKseekers! We’re back with update on Ah In’s drama Jang Ok Jung, Live In Love Week II for episode 3 and 4, and I proudly announce that this drama has shaped up to one fine Sageuk,  and Yoo Ah In has redeemed himself completely from the Fashion King’s doom!

Jang Ok Jung is so well-written and well-developed~ with each character having layers and their own back-story so compelling that you just want to dig them more. It got people hooked and took them by surprise because they didn’t expect much at first. Cinematography at its best, acting chops that are not over the top, the balance between love and political conflict’s flow that’s satisfying. It’s a crack.

In another hand, Jang Ok Jung is also a hidden gem~ an under-appreciated, underrated drama in Korea. The re-imagining character of Jang Ok Jung from a villain to a heroine, apparently doesn’t sit well with Korean audience. As I previously stated, I couldn’t careless about viewerships, as long as this drama managed to become a high quality one, which it did. Note that high ratings doesn’t indicate the quality, and vice versa.

A thought from Dominique in Dramabeans about her reasons watching this drama has my nods~

“Yoo Ah In’s mesmerizing presence, sexual magnetism and depths/shades of acting.

The story. What with royals, aristocrats, beautifully dressed and coiffed ladies and geishas, power play between a boy Crown Prince and his Machiavellian future father-in-law, a talented girl with ambition, and interplay between several girls who are fated to take turns to occupy a place in the future King’s bed (as in Henry V).

The entertainment quotient. Jang Ok Jeong is almost British in its looks, witticism and sensibilities. Except when the drama takes us back to her childhood, which consisted of not one but a series of life-and-death traumas, that is when the drama becomes suddenly makjang Korean. But otherwise, it is brisk, unsentimental and fun.”

 

I highly recommend you to check Jang Ok Jung recaps from Koala’s Playground who judges this drama from her point of view and produces an unbiased and very articulate analysis: Episode 2Episode 3 and Episode 4. She also translated the complete characters description HERE

Yoo Ah In’s Secret of Popularity is His Butt?

Yoo Ah In reveals his secret to attracting older women~

The cast of ‘Jang Ok Jung‘ was interviewed by SBS‘ ‘One Night of TV Entertainment‘, April 10th, and the reporter asked him, “Why do you think you’re popular with older women?”

Yoo Ah In joked, “I think it’s because I have a cute butt.” The actor also revealed, “When I was 20, I was asked out by a woman 10 years older than I was.” When he heard this, fellow castmate Jae Hee made everyone laugh by saying, “It’s true then that older women like cute butts.”

On how much older he would be okay with dating, Yoo Ah In laughed as he answered, “It’s all right as long as she doesn’t have a cane.” LMAO!

      YW, Mr. Moony 😀 Indeed Prince Lee Soon/King Sukjong role just perfectly fits YAI. Let’s cross our finger and hope that he’ll grow pornstache for the upcoming eps!
      I’m totally with you~ It’s too bad that this drama is unappreciated by its own local viewers but it gains much more respect outside the country 🙂
