When a Drama Becomes a Case Study

I have watched most of Kim Myung Min and Cha Seung Won’s dramas, both of whom are seasoned actors, but one person I hadn’t gotten around to watching was Jang Hyuk, another actor possibly in the same league. Therefore, my latest watch was: Beautiful Mind, starring Jang Hyuk and the energetic, lively Park So Dam […]

You can help us make the Beautiful Mind Special DVD become a reality. 

Hi friends. As many of you know, Beautiful Mind was cut short by KBS due to ratings but it was beloved by those who watched it. 

There’s a team of korean fans that has been working hard at trying to get a Director’s Cut DVD but that wasn’t possible because it didn’t meet minimum pre-order in Korea. However, not all hope is lost! There is a possibility of getting a Beautiful Mind Special Making DVD! 


The WiFi couple needs you!

This DVD will have great features and even though it says “No Subtitles” the DVD Team will work on english subtitles themselves. 

Pre-order is now open to foreigners which means we can now help make this happen! DVDs are 52.32 (much cheaper than typical Director’a Cut and which will be refunded if DVD is not made)

We need to meet 500 pre-orders before September 5th. We can’t let this opportunity go! 

Look at this super cute moment! We need more of these!

Here is where you pre-order:

Below is the message from the team who is making our dream come true 👏

This is Beautiful Mind DVD project group. 

We would like to thank everyone who have waited for the pre-order. 

There have been a lot of inquiries about English subtitles. 

BM DVD Project Group is currently organising a team for the subtitles.

As soon as we reach minimum demand for the Special Making DVD, we will start translating. 

We are trying hard to meet everyone’s need. 

Special Making DVD will include:

– 3 disc : including cut scenes of 1 ~ 14th episode that have not been aired. 

– Photo book (80 ~ 100p)

– Hologram numbering sticker 

– Postcards

– Region Code: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 (NO region 2)

Also we are discussing on

1) Scripts of all episodes

2) Written commentaries of the director/writer and actors/actresses. 

Pre-order for BM Special DVD is open until September 5th. 

Price of the DVD is $53.29.

If the Pre-order does not meet its minimum demands, this project will be stopped. The minimum demand for BM Special Making DVD is 500. This DVD project is order based production. BM Special Making DVD can be only purchased until September 5th. 

If this project fails, you can get a full refund. 

We are trying our best not to lose BM Special Making DVD.

Let’s make this happen together.

All the World’s a Mimicry

Forging human connections is like running a makeshift theater academy. At times, a man briefly stages in his head the turmoil ravaging another person’s mind. At times, he recalls and mentally rehearses scenes that have brought someone in those shoes a little cheer. Then he walks onto a visible stage, located wherever the other party can be reached, and re-enacts the soothing […]

Beautiful Mind: Episodes 11-12

We move into Angstville and a number of familiar tropes, which have been simmering throughout the drama, are in full play this week (and possibly the next). It’s difficult to ignore the fact that Beautiful Mind does have enough story to last the full 16 episodes, but I’m trying to make peace with the episode […]
