**SQUEALS in MULTIPLE DELIGHT!**
Please don’t mind the squees, glees and screams, cos I’m just SO excited that Hyuk is coming back to drama THIS SOON. 28th February 2011 is the BIG DAY!
Love the man, love his dedication, love his workaholic attitude. But most of all, I love that he always manages to make time for MORE. I won’t get tired seeing him act, seriously. He just got done filming Client with Ha Jung Woo and Park Ha Seon, then immediately dove into Midas. Was rumored to be confirmed for an upcoming sageuk titled Tree With Deep Roots. And today I just read that he’s confirmed to star in another movie titled “Evil Seed?”!! He’s totally going ALL OUT nowadays.. I know you’re hardworking and you wanna earn more $$$ for your wife/children, but man, you’ve gotta get some rest!
Back to Midas, I have earlier on groused on Hyuk’s decision to take on this drama. Not because I’m not happy that hes not having enough rest (he really needs IT!), it’s the scriptwriter whom I’m having qualms with. I don’t exactly dislike Choi Wan Gyu, granted that I’ve professed my fondness towards some of his previous dramas in the past eg. All In, Gourmet. I think he has ways of telling stories capable of engaging a viewer’s interest and tho he’s not great and all, there’s just something about his works which magically makes people want to follow thru till the very end. Negative stuff? I’ve heard enough and will not elaborate more. I just hope that he’ll be able to bring out the best in Hyuk as well as the other cast. The PD, Kang Shin Hyo who directed Hyuk’s gambling hit Tazza, is relatively unfamiliar to me as I’ve not seen any of his other works. I did not finish Tazza, but I liked what I saw in the first few episodes. Again, me hopes he’ll be able to capture the best in Hyuk, just like how and what PD Kwak did with him in Chuno.
Kim Hee Ae, I don’t think I’ve seen her in anything so I cannot comment. But Lee Min Jung, I’m definitely checking her out. I admit I haven’t finished a full project of hers, even the generally well-received Smile, You which elevated her to her hallyu fame today. But I found her acting to be very natural and charismatic in what I’ve seen so far. And she has this very natural aura devoid of gloss and glam, something which is rarely seen nowadays in the entertainment industry.
I’m not sure about the premise of the drama which revolves around corporate conspiracies, stocks, markets and whatnot. Nothing about the genre interests me save for the fact that Hyuk’s in it, and playing a hot chaebol. He’s a winner for sure, and I’m looking forward to him tackling the 2 women! Haha, you saw it, I’m more into the triangular romance. 😛
Ooops, did I forget to mention about those flawless Midas stills? Yeap, Kim Hee Ae looks confident, Hyuk cool but sad, and Min Jung, gorgeous. If there’s anything about Midas that I like for now, it’s the cast. Hands down.
