Hi there! We are Drama Fan and Gumi and we want to welcome you to this special place dedicated to our current obsession: Jang Hyuk, and his fans.
So, why did we open a blog for Hyukie when there are already similar blogs out there? Here are a few reasons:
1.- The language: We follow awesome and up to date Jang Hyuk fan sites and blogs but they are mostly written in Korean, Chinese or Japanese, and while google translate is a great ally for any “Jang Hyuk enthusiast”, we figured we could make English-speaking fans life a little easier by translating some of the news and information we find out there. Actually, it will be Gumi doing that part of the job, because Drama Fan is still in the process of learning the language. (As in, her korean vocabulary consists of 10 words) but, hey! if Ddolbok could learn the korean alphabet in 16 days, Drama Fan can in 16
months years maybe. Well, she’ll try.
2.- Our addiction to Hyukdramas: We just can’t get enough of Jang Hyuk’s dramas and we wanted to give ourselves a good (or any) excuse to re watch every single one of his dramas teehee! So, yesss, we will have to “sacrifice” ourselves and re watch everything in order to write our reviews Poor us! We will never intend to compete with the excellent, professional, reliable, accurate un biased and beautifully written reviews you might find in blogs such as Dramabeans, etc. Our reviews will be naturally Hyuk centered, spazz filled and literary challenged BUT, written with a lot of love and a genuine attempt to be objective (we will occasionally mention other actors and characters too…maybe)
3.- Shameless fangirling/fanboying: Do you feel embarrassed about being totally biased? Do you feel that you have to make too much of an effort to write “objective” and “logical” opinions in blogs and forums only to not be qualified as a crazy lady (or guy) whose opinion doesn’t count because you’ve lost all threads of objectivity when it comes to Jang Hyuk? Do you feel the occasional urge to “review” his Ads, his interviews, his photo shoots, his abs, his swagger, heck! comment on pictures of him staring at the wall? Do you feel alone in thinking that he is just the best actor in Korea and the universe???????? You are not alone! There are plenty of insane asylums…:D…kidding…there is this blog. We won’t judge you! Also, there is no need to be THIS crazy about him. Como join us and you’ll get there eventually. We just know it! 😉
So welcome aboard and let’s have fun!
