K-Lookbook: How to style your hair like a K-drama male lead

They say your hair is your crowning glory. Most of the time it is associated with women; their hairstyle can make or break their whole look. But I think it is also true for men. Just take a look at Korean actors we all fell in love in. They changed their hairstyle depending on the…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Finale

We reach the end of the long and winding maze that is Chicago Typewriter. I really enjoyed reviewing this series, although it's just sad that it got low ratings in Korea. I just hope more people get to watch it and appreciate the superb writing and admirable execution of the script. Yoo Ah-in, Go Kyung-pyo,…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 14

It pains me so much that after all the hype built to support this drama, Chicago Typewriter remains to be underrated, and still far from reaching even just the hairline of Goblin. This drama has a lot of potential with a solid story to tell, but I guess the competition in the South Korean television market is so challenging,…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 12

It's the moment we have all been waiting for. Just as we all thought we are ready for the big reveal, it's still painful to learn the truth this way. Though the show gave us hints of Shin Yul's (Go Kyung-pyo) death, we remained in denial that maybe, just maybe, he died because of natural…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 11

I swear this series sure knows how to tug at heartstrings! I was almost disappointed with Jeon Seol's (Im Soo-jung) seemingly obvious plan of leaving our hero writer Han Se-joo (Yoo Ah-in) behind after seeing his face as the person she "killed" in the past. We are not even sure of it yet, and I…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 10

Awww, Jeon Seol (Im Soo-jung) remembers our puppy-eyed ghost! Shin Yul (Go Kyung Pyo) was the first person whom Seol recognized in her vision of her past life. She knows that he was the one who taught her how to use a pistol, and many other things. As much as I root for our OTP…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 9

After weeks of zoning out from the weekly write-ups, your resident GF is back! I am sorry it took me so long to compose this episode's reaction, but I promise I would stick around more this time. Also, I'll try not to recap so much starting from now, and only share about my personal say in every episode…

Go Kyung-pyo to test chemistry with Chae Soo-bin in new KBS2 drama Strongest Deliveryman

It seems that Go Kyung-pyo will set aside break for the meantime as he is confirmed to make a quick follow-up to Chicago Typewriter with the new KBS2 drama series Strongest Deliveryman (literal title). He will star opposite Chae Soo-bin (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) in the said drama where he will play the lead role of Choi Gang-soo,…
