T-ara’s Hwayoung is Out!

The famous Kpop girl group T-ara is suffering the worst scandal today.

Rumors and speculations have been posted throughout the internet about T-ara’s Hwayoung being bullied by other T-ara members. Why is that so? What is happening to them?

There has been an event that Hwayoung got injured in the leg in their performance on SBS Inkigayo last July 22 and she wasn’t able to perform in their Budoken Concerts in Japan last July 25 to 26.

Eun Jung tweeted last July 25 saying “Like how the location creates a person, a person’s will also does the same. Sigh. It’s so unfortunate. You have to know how to take care of the people around you.”

Since then, controversial tweets were seen and it talks about ‘will’, ‘respect’, ‘difference’, ‘common sense’ and other stuff, more like of pertaining to Hwayoung’s incompetence.

In addition to that, many photos and camera snapshot relating to the bullying scandal where posted, like Eun Jung trying to feed Hwayoung a whole rice cake on a Japanese broadcast and another scene where Hyomin poked Hwayoung’s eyes while lifting her arm. Isn’t it too much for the T-ara members?

What’s happening behind the scandal is a question to every netizens and T-ara fans and a possible out casting of Hwayoung in the group became a rumor. But every problem should be resolved no matter what.

And so the representative of the Core Contents Media, Kim Kwang Soo, stated that, “After I return from this business trip in Japan, I will make an announcement about T-ara on the 30th”, for things to be cleared.

Finally the long wait is over. As of this day, Hwayoung is no longer part of the T-ara group. How unfortunate. 

Bye Bye Hwayoung :'(

The Moon Meets the Sun: Korean Drama Series Review of The Moon that Embraces the Sun

Aligned with the best tv series like Dong Yi, Jumong, Jewel in the Palace, Chuno and Queen Seon Duk, another Korean drama series will definitely hit the Philippine television by storm, “The Moon that Embraces the Sun”.

The Moon that Embraces the Sun is a k-series adapted from a novel with the similar title that depicts the life of a female shaman and the king of the Joseon Dynasty.  The sun represents the king of Joseon Dynasty and the moon symbolizes the queen.

Meet the Main Characters:

Han Ga In (Heo Yeon Woo)  is a daughter of a righteous family and chosen to become the Crown Princess of the Joseon emprire. At the palace, she meets Hwon by accident, the crown prince but at first the prince hides his true identity to her.  As time passes by, the relationship between Woo and the prince deepens, they fell in love with each other. When the prince decided to marry her, the high position members of the palace prepared a dark plan against her. The Queen Dowager Jung Hui, orders Yeon Woo to be killed because she wants Yoon Bo Kyung to become the crown princess in its place. But their plan of killing her failed because a shaman saved her life, and brings her to the place of shamans. She was raised there and after eight years she returned to the palace with a new identity, she was called by the name Wol and she doesn’t remember anything of what happened to her eight years ago.

Kim Soo Hyun (Lee Hwon), an easy-go-lucky young crown prince who doesn’t care about being one of the highest positions in the palace not until the day he met Yeon Woo. Through Woo, he finally realized that he will one day rule a palace and become a king. He falls in love with Woo and he’s determined to make her as his crown princess but unfortunate thing happened, Woo unexpectedly dies. After that incident, years later, Soo Hyun became the king and turns out to be an arrogant guy and he rarely smiles He marry Yoon Bo Kyung instead. After eight years, he meets Yeon Woo again, but this time she can’t even recognized him.

Jung Il Woo (Prince Yang Myung)  is the elder half brother of Lee Hwon. A carefree and free spirited guy but deep inside he’s longing for the love and affection of his father (King Seongjo) because his father treated him with coldness. After meeting Yeon Woo, he started to love her. When Woo chooses to become the crown princess and later dies, he was extremely poignant and furious to what happened with the person that he secretly loved. Eight years later, fate lets him meet Wol again.

Kim Min Seo (Yoon Bo Kyung), the one who married Lee Hwon. She was used as a means by the Queen Dowager to gained more. The queen’s planned became successful when Bo Kyung finally marry the crown prince and later she turn out to be the Queen of the palace but she never get the love of his king because he is still in love with Woo.

Can Yeon Woo/Wol bring back her memory and regain her rightful position in the palace? Will they have a happy ever after ending? This k-drama series is a must watch and I’m pretty sure it will be well love by Filipinos, just like the previous korean dramas aired in the Philippines.

Woman Power! Korean Drama Review of Big Thing

The star that brought you ‘Queen Seon Duk’ (2009) and ‘What’s Up Fox?’ (2006) is back with her latest Korean drama series. Introducing Korea’s finest actress, model and singer Ko Hyun-Jung partners with Korea’s hallyu star Kwon Sang Woo, “Dae Mul or locally known as “Big Thing”. 

Brief Synopsis:

Big Thing depicts the life of a simple woman who turns-out to be as one of the greatest ruler in Korea. Korea’s first female president, Seo Hye-Rim (Ko Hyun-Jung), didn’t expect these kinds of things would come to her life. She was once a radio announcer and became a member of the National Assembly and all she wanted was justice for her husband’s undeserved death. 

Ha Do Ya (Kwon Sang Woo) supported Hye-Rim all the way, even if he was a lowborn. He studied hard and became a prosecutor. President Seo Hye-Rim will now face all the adversaries as she sits in the highest rank a Korean female ever made. 

Side Note:

This tv series is a must watch! I adored Seo’s character here because of her toughness as a woman, honesty, strength, and loyalty. She knows how to forgive and forget all the bad things that happened to her life and managed to climb the stairs of success. She stands her ground even if there are people against her decisions and prove each of them what she really made of. Overall, Big Thing is well written and acted. Highly recommended!

The King of All King: Kim Tak Goo “The Baker King”

The King of Baking, Kim Takgu also known as The Baker King was one of the successful Korean drama series aired in the Philippines. The story revolves around the life of Kim Tak Goo, the eldest son of the president of Samhwa Enterprise Goo II Joong.


Kim Tak Goo is a simple person with a big dream, to become famous in the baking industry just like his father. He is the eldest son of Goo II Joong to Kim Misun (mother of Tak Goo) which is his mistress. Due to loathing and envious to Kim Tak Goo, the chairman’s wife Insok, made his life miserable. Worst, she planned to rob Tak Goo’s mother just to get rid of him.

After his mother was kidnapped, Takgu decided to leave his home to look for his mother because his mother is very dear to him. He spends 12 years looking for her. With his journey to find his mother, he entered a baking school of Pal Bong (a legend in the baking industry, just like his father and who happens to be the teacher of his father).

At the baking school, Takgu found the man who kidnapped his mother, but he tells that his mother is already dead. After knowing that his mother is already dead, he continued his life in the bakery and become skilled in making bread.

On the other hand, Majun, Takgu’s half brother is also at the same school. He wants to learn the art of making bread to get his father’s approval to take over their family business. But, Takgu is not aware of it since his half brother never reveals his true identity to them.

On the later part of the story, it is revealed that Takgu’s mother is not dead, and she is also looking for his son as well. The president also spent some years looking for his eldest son, eventually learned that he is living in the bakery where he first master the art of making bread and he was so angry to Majun because he hide the truth from him.

Takgu reunited to his mother again. However, it is not yet the end of the story. Insok and her lover Han (the President assistant), made another dark planned to kill Takgu and to make sure that Majun will take the position of his father as the president of their company. Unfortunately, they failed with their planned and Han goes to prison. And at the end, as the saying goes “the characters live happily ever after”.

Point of View:

I love the character of Takgu. He’s like a typical person who never fails to dream and always think positive. He will do anything to make his dream come true whatever it takes. Despite of the trials and hardships that he encountered on his journey, he never failed to smile. Also, I love the way he love his mother and he never let anger stay on his heart which makes him a better person, from my point of view.
