Actually I think the answer is no to that question. Show business used to be pretty ratty in the early days. That was when women were considered cheap and 'no better than they ought to be' (whatever that means) if they set foot on the stage.
The musichalls were full of comedians and chorus girls and families who put on emotional melodramas. The life they led was tough, and children often slept in the suitcases when they were on the road. At least those days are over.

Nowdays I don't even watch any Hollywood films and rarely see US TV shows.
It's all so vulgar and it doesn't seem to bother anyone that children are exposed to violence and raunchy sit-coms. I am not easily shocked, but I am soon disgusted and most of the stuff now is too disgusting for words. I sincerely hope Korean and Japanese dramas will remain more tasteful even when they present dramatic stories.

Entertainment is just a tough/weird business to be in, I guess. :|

I rarely watch US movies/tv either, for a lot of reasons probably very similar to yours, and don't expose my kids to it either. I also join you in hoping that Asian dramas do NOT follow the western/US lead & stay (overall) more tasteful & restrained.

I'm not much original myself, I was bored to death with US/Western movies, dramas and shows. I'm not prude, but I got sick when in every show the first date was ending in some motel or restroom. I prefer korean holding hands more. Even if it's only on screen, I don't care.

Same here. I never really liked US dramas/movies. I prefer my fellow Asians. :)

I found this cute pic, by the way. Hope you like it. :D

After watching Painter of the Winds, I realize that SS was a great re-make. I can see where SS made up for what POTW lacked. I'm glad I saw both though.

Posted: Mar 13th, '11, 00:42
by Ethlenn
And you are mistaken. SKKS was based on the book, and Painter (...) on the real person.
It's not a remake of any kind.

Posted: Mar 13th, '11, 01:50
by iluvasiandrama
I still associate the two because of similarities and SS is much better than POTW.

So Yoochun's next drama is MBC's Goodbye Miss Ripley?

There is so more news about the drama now. It is supposed be based on "Shin Jeong Ah", a professor who faked her academic credentials.

I am not sure how they will approach this story line. but most likely Lee Da hae will be playing this professor or whatever, while Yoo Chun her love interest or student?!!! ACK!! why did they have to cast Le Da Hae.... :cry:

Oh please, LDH, drop this project, pretty, pretty please. I can't imagine ff-ing the whole drama whenever her scenes come up.
Jeez... or Yucheon should drop it.

Posted: Mar 16th, '11, 19:21
by aility
i highly doubt that she will drop this project. I mean, she has been dropping TWO projects already. I think I even read somewhere that the reason she dorpped was due to this one...

ack, why didnt Yoochun pick another drama, with a LESS annoying lead lady?!

Posted: Mar 16th, '11, 19:32
by Ethlenn
Oh hell yeah. Whoever has an account on Twitter - please write it to this boy!! Please persuade him that there are better actresses than this one. He could have not noticed since he was busy with no time to watch drama... Aigoo...

@ aility thanks for the answer Hearing that ,make me sad why is it supposed to be her ?!! More than that I cant see any any chemistry btw the two of them !

Posted: Mar 16th, '11, 19:39
by aility
Lee Da Hae is supposedly one of the prettiest ladies in Korea, an image of Korea etc etc... So I guess, YC wont complain thaaaat much about being paired up with her, no?

And you know, a lot of people will defend her... for some odd reason.

ACK! I dont know why I am even trying to defend her now, perhaps to get back the joy of having YC in a new drama? aish...

I think I'll go with your advise Ethlenn cause it looks like the torrent I got for the JYJ is not going anywhere. Ohhh well, I'll keep trying for a little bit but look into DBSK.

But to just add, Ah-in lately has been criticized a lot. And I do get what this come from, eh...

@esmer86: in case you need something, let me know, keke^^

Posted: Apr 10th, '11, 09:08
by middlefour
Ethlenn, do you know how long Launch My Life will air? That's three episodes already.
What you said about Ah In made me curious. What was he being criticized for?
I haven't had any news about k-entertainment for the past 2-3 weeks.

Posted: Apr 10th, '11, 09:12
by Ethlenn
Have absolutely no idea of how long. I'm not that interested and I don't even watch those, I just put it here because there are Ah-in fans out there.
Plus, he appears in other reality shows right now, with the similar title, and the episode 7th already aired.

Well, he's being slightly criticized for his attitude. I didn't stalk his news, and this is all I read once on Nate, so don't know the detail. I bet there is something else in it, but I'm not that curious.

Posted: Apr 10th, '11, 09:22
by middlefour
I see. Thanks! I'm sure there is more to it also since it's an attitude problem.

There is also the interview with Yu Ah-in in yesterday's Entertainment Weekly. The show's number: 1370. 2011-04-09. KBS will sub it in appr. 2 weeks, and DevilSlob most likely upload it here, so keep your eyes open.

I feel yah, Ethlenn. Alert me if you manage to get a hold of a copy.

Last monday, there was a feature on M! Coundown in tvN about the comeback of TVXQ.
They sang "Love in the Ice," "Hey!," and "Mirotic." Micky's always hidden. Haiz.

Any news about Ripley? When is it gonna be shown?

Posted: Apr 20th, '11, 18:14

Ripley scheduled to May 30. And we have a thread on it already
Crap, I missed that Mnet episode... Will check it right now, thanksies^^
Hmm... can't find it... you sure it was Mnet on April 19th?

And yes, Yucheon wasn't even 2nd plan... idiot.

And no worry, if I get ahold of the copy, I will post it here right away. Unless I pass out with elation, mehehe...

It was on tvN asia so I'm not sure if you'll find that on april 19.
That was probably a month ago, or so.
If only I had a recorder. It was replayed three times after. aish

Performances included FT Island, Shinee (Love Like Oxygen), Brown Eyed Girls,
SeeYa, Wonder Girls (Nobody), Lee Min Woo (Don't Trust Men), 2PM (10 out of 10).
Looks like it was an episode from 2008. :( About the same time I stopped listening to kpop.

Hello all, hope this topic is alive and kicking for I love Sungkyunkwan Scandal and curse my luck I came to d-addicts so late. Really, you were the people I was looking for! Though it has been many months since SKKS ended, I haven't been able to get it out of my system and don't think I would ever want to. What a beautiful script and such round characters! Makes you think and feel at the same time. It was just like reading a great book with layer added to layer. The characters had their own internal logic which made them life-like.What an ensemble cast! I loved the Jalgeum quartet and adored the LSJ-KYH pairing. Now have made the natural progression from LSJ to Yoochun to JYJ to K-pop and artists' rights. Keenly waiting for City Hunter and Ripley. One of the best dramas I have watched . Who am I kidding? The best drama I have watched :)

Welcome aboard, mimi! I'm a late bloomer like you. haha.
Just finished my third run of SKKS earlier today.
What a way to cap the Holy week eh? :D

Posted: Apr 25th, '11, 05:19
by mimi2601
Thanks middlefour. Third re-run of SKKS, eh? You have used your time wisely. I am still a re-run behind you. Actually, plan on showing it to my friend who is miles away. But since this is one drama where she needs to have some knowledge of the historical context, plan to sit with her and do another re-run.
SKKS in Japanese theatres is great news, no? I haven't still given up hopes of a sequel and hope this one makes the producers see the possibilities of a movie sequel to SKKS, as Song Joongki was saying. I know it is an impossible thing, yet ....
Btw, did you finally get to watch 'Launch my life'?I gave it up after the first two episodes, but hope it improved as the show progressed.

Posted: Apr 25th, '11, 06:32
by middlefour
The rerun was kind of late, actually. I planned to watch it last Feb but my schedule's a mess that time.
Yeah. How I wish there was that kind of anticipation in my country, too.
I don't usually go watching movies but if its SKKS, I'd definitely go.
I've seen Launch My Life raw. Dunno much about what it's for, really. haha. Photoshoots?
Have you seen it subbed somewhere?

Posted: Apr 26th, '11, 04:17
by Ethlenn
Oh, hi mimi2601, we hope to hear (read??) more from you^^

As for Ah-in's show... well, it's weird...

Posted: Apr 26th, '11, 13:26
by mimi2601
Thanks Ethlenn. I have visited your blog and find it very interesting and extremely entertaining :D . Like you, I too love SKKS with all its flaws for I can find few dramas which were so daring in what they attempted to do. Found the drama's concern with the larger society so refreshing as also the consistency in characterization.

Middlefour, the haveners have subbed 'Launch my Life'. They must have subbed the whole thing by now. From what I have seen, I think the show was kind of built around the theme of how to survive life with Ah-In for 28 days(?) and the show consciously highlighted his 'difficult to get along' nature. But from the responses I have seen, I don't think most viewers got it. I vastly enjoyed his section tv interview though.
Yes, watching SKKS in a theatre would be quite an amazing experience! But quite happy with the re-runs as of now. Understood some of the parallel scenes and dialogues better the second time around.

Yes, Ethlenn, good news travels fast. Wish those sales figures could persuade at least one of the many producers of variety shows to actually have the guts to air one with Yoochun! It's pretty frustrating reading about how yet another show was canceled with Yoochun in it. When will they grow a backbone and not backtrack at the last moment with the lamest of excuses?

SKKS is a classic. I see nothing out of place and I could watch it over and over. Good cast young and old. Experienced actors never put a foot wrong and the young ones, even beginners, were never gauche. Lovely drama.

Hello all,

Saw the chinese subbed interview of Yoochun from the dvd on Youtube. Hope they Eng sub it soon. The Haveners are sure to do Ah- In's. Hope somebody subs Min Young's n Joong Ki's as well.

Middlefour, it sure is frustrating! Feel for Yoochun who must have gone to so much trouble to be there for Kim Kap Soo whom he revers.

Ethlenn, as we say here, what to do with people who close their eyes and call themselves blind? All the broadcasting stations know what is happening, but choose to turn a blind eye .

Peggy, well-said! SKKS sure is a classic. Kudos to the script-writer n director as well, especially for the changes they made in the characterisation of the Jalgeum quartet from the novel. Added so much depth to it. They wanted this one to be more than a drama( which I am sure ticks off some of the viewers :)) and that's why it continues to stay in our hearts.

Posted: May 5th, '11, 21:33

I'm sure I didn't post it here...
In the theme of "Let's delve into nice memories", I present - opening for the drama^^

Jalgeum Quartet in this gem of a drama

It's been a while, and I have the feeling that this drama will not grow old. It has so much to offer, so much to explore.

My apologies for being very vague here but I read somewhere on the net that in Korea they are having a serious meeting to discuss situations such as the boycotting of JYJ and others ...also the scanty costumes worn by some girl groups. About time in my estimation for the latter.

I think this was a grouping of officials with various TV people so there maybe a change in the wind. Let's hope so.
