You’re Beautiful – Episode 15 & 16

31 05 2010

Episode 15 & 16 –

Basically the last two episodes were fairly formulaic – 15 wraps it up and 16 closes it out.

Praises –

  1. Overall a great series
  2. Well paced, well-balanced
  3. Excellent casting and all gave great performances
  4. Great scenes expressing the feelings of falling in love.

Criticisms –

  1. The Shin Woo relationship never really got off the ground for me, I was never totally pulling for him, because there just wasn’t any tension there.  Although we know he is a good guy, he didn’t give any sustained pressure.
  2. They should have done more with Shin Woo and Tae Kyung, some rivalry and more jealousy.  That was underused in this series, but would have been fun to see.
  3. The Fly Me to the Moon song
  4. They didn’t end it with a kiss.  Buzzkill.

…. If I knew in advance I would have liked it so well, I would have savored it more.





You’re Beautiful Episode 12 & 13

27 05 2010

Episode 12 – The kiss really wasn’t that exciting, no fireworks, but what happened afterward I totally loved.  Her fantasy of asking him why he kissed her… this made my heart practically thump out of my chest.  Tae Kyung’s/Jang Geun Suk’s smile is a ridiculously dangerous weapon and very firework worthy.

Also I noted the electric guitar version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.  This song must really be a big deal in Korea, I have heard it in several dramas.  If anyone knows any additional info please leave a comment.  Thank you.

I have read that the ending line of this episode was somewhat misrepresented by the subtitle, it is more of a recognition that she likes him and he is okay with that rather than how conceited it sounds.

Check out this vid of some behind the scenes footage.  I can’t be the only person who thinks there is some flirting between Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa.  Enjoy!

Episode 13 – This is an episode that shares one of my favorite scenes and the one scene that I really wish they would have not made.  The thing is here in America, “Fly me to the Moon” is a classic.   We have heard it from Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra.  It was painful for me to watch them murder the classic.  But there were also great moments,  I especially loved the “test” he gave her after joining the fan club.

I am continuing to learn how to make my content richer, etc.  I am updating old pages as well as starting a new page for videos, music, etc. anything that I want to share.   Please continue to return as I try to update often.  Thank you!





You’re Beautiful Episode 11 plus grocery store clip, no eng sub

27 05 2010

Episode 11 – Just two comments on this episode… Love how Tae Kyung picks up his jacket after unsticking Go Mi Nam’s fingers, very stylish.  I also loved to see Shin Woo stepping it up – about time he really went after the girl he wants.

Previously I had a  clip from the super market scene that was not in the U.S. version I saw.  Sorry it is no longer available… I hate that we can’t always tell if it has been modified/edited from the original… what’s up with that??

I found a version of the grocery store scene, but no eng sub

Please let me know if you find the clip or if you find a dead link on my site.  Thank you!!

Episode 9 – still so good… I feel bad for Shin Woo, I think he waited too long to make his move.  So here is a video for Jung Yong Hwa fans.  He is the leader of the band CN Blue.. so good.

Episode 8 –

Just a fun vid showing the various photos they took for promotional things… I had a cool BTS photoshoot, but as per norm they took it down.

I am continuing to learn how to make my content richer, etc.  Please leave me a message if any of the links don’t work, etc.  I have started a new page for videos, music, etc. anything that I want to go to Interesting Info .  I currently have a video of T.O.P. and Kim Hyun Joong https://kormerica.wordpress.com/interesting-info/.





You’re Beautiful Episode 6 and clip

You’re Beautiful continued…

Episode 6 –  Here is a link for a Youtube video of some extra’s during the fantasy, “who got tased” scene.  Enjoy!

Update – Okay, I can’t seem to keep that clip.  I find it put it up and then it gets removed, so I am replacing with this BTS clip but if you haven’t seen the whole series, you probably shouldn’t watch it yet.

I loved the tantrum Yoo He Yi throws trying to get into the studio.  It was so real and as a non-Korean speaker it sounded really cool.

Also am I the only one who appreciated Jung Yong Hwa’s pants in the Myungdong scenes?  I did feel so bad for him when TaeKyung called.

Please continue to check back as I continue to update and add content to make my site more fun.  Just added a new page for Music vids and other tidbits.





You’re Beautiful – Episode 2 plus BTS clip of Lee Hong Ki

24 05 2010

Continued discussion of You’re Beautiful

Episode 2 –  I absolutely loved the animated clouds, so cute!

Let’s take a moment to talk about Lee Hong Ki (Jeremy).  Okay, if anyone knows why his character has an American name, I’d love to know.  But cheers all around, good choice, it fit his character and I loved hearing the Korean actors say it.  Anyway, Lee Hong Ki is the lead singer for a band called F.T. Island.  I don’t know much about the band, but I do love their song “Love Sick”.  *update – Lee Hong Ki has really grown on me since this show.  He is so cute I can hardly stand it.  I saw him on Family Outing, but he had just had his wisdom teeth pulled so he was pretty quiet, but it was cool to see him out of character.  I really liked him and he sang part of Love Sick and his voice is awesome.  I also saw a clip of him on some dating show, so if anyone knows what show that is, please leave a comment so I can check it out.

Here are some behind the scenes clips of “Jeremy”… not eng subbed, but really cute.

Jung Yong Hwa (Shin Woo) is a guitarist and vocalist for the new Korean group C N Blue.  Due to his success in this series, he is now the leader of the group (previously held by Lee Jong Hyun).

I love the little hardcore riff they play when Tae Kyung comes on screen.  It just feels fun.

This is the second series from the Hong Sisters that I have watched.  The first was Fantasy Couple, which was good, but I think it was tainted because in America we saw the original Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell OverBoard, which is totally hilarious and Goldie Hawn was just so charming.
