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: New posters and 5 minute trailer


We find the new posters released for Beautiful Mind to be original and interesting. Let’s take a look:

   

“The most dangerous doctor who saves lives”

   

 
“The miracle of simpathy we have been waiting for” 

  
  
    
“Look at me when you speak, so that I can read you”

And here is the 5 minute trailer. Enjoy!

 

Beautiful Mind – Teasers, poster and more


  
Squeeeee!!! Hyukie will be back very very soon to the world of kdrama. More specifically on June 20th with the medical- mistery Beautiful Mind. Check out the teasers below and get as excited as we are! Teaser 3 is the one that did it for me and teaser 5 is also highly recommended (thanks to Zoi)

Due to a medical condition Dr Lee Young Oh (Jang Hyuk) is unable to feel emotions. On the first teaser he says “Look at me, so I can read you”.

Teaser 1

His inability to read emotions has made him a lonely person as we can see on teaser 2.

Teaser 2

While the first two teasers were intriguing, teaser 3 got me really excited about this drama. Why? Because Dr Lee looks distraught and intense and yes 30 secs of Jang Hyuk in some kind of distress, showing off those acting skills of his, are enough to make our hearts pump! 

Teaser 3

On teaser 4 we get introduced to our leading lady intepreted by Park So Dam.

Teaser 5 is a longer version of teaser 4. Aside from the super sexy visual of Dr Lee showing off his handcuffs like in a sort of baddass/cool/unphased manner, he says something like:”Do you see me as the witness or an accomplice?” in a very casual tone, as if it’s not a big deal. This gives us an idea of how dettached the character can be. 

Teaser 5

In addition, here is the official character description of our two leads (translation by Gumi)

Heartless man,Lee Young Oh: He is a dangerous man, even believed to be a psychopath. Fast and dexterous hands, crisp logic, fearless decisions, are all great characteristics in a doctor.

  
But Dr Lee’s greatest talent is that he lacks empathy. His cure ratio probability game is his identity as a Dr.

  
Bad guy, in fact, poor guy Lee Young Oh suddenly experiences a “change of frecuency” when he meets 100% pure, Kye Jin Sung. The easiest person to read in the world becomes  a riddle impossible to solve for Lee Young Oh. 

  
Young Oh finally learns there’s emotion that can’t be decoded by logic. And that there’s eyes that cannot be read by body signals. That was the beginning. That was when Lee Young Oh’s perfect world started to crack. 

  
Unstoppable train, Kye Jin Sung: No hipocrisy, no circumlocution. She acts according to rules, speaks according to feelings and walks along the path she believes in.   

  
While others spend time covering up their feelings due to pride or calculation, she reveals her 100% pure heart. So, it is hard to hate her. She has never turned her back towards the world or towards her love. 

Some find her honesty to be “too much” but spend some time with her and you’ll find her lovely. 

  
After her many encounters with Young Oh, Jin Sung found out he is not a dangerous man but rather a poor man. As always, she can’t turn her back on Lee Young Oh either. She can’t turn her eyes away from him.

FTLY support event report + Jang Hyuk’s message to fans


I know it’s really late, I’m sorry! Hahaha…but yes here’s the report for August 11 DC Jang Hyuk Gallery FTLY support event. Yes, the event for which some of you contributed. Here are the photo reports, compiled by DC JH gallery Narara.

web_2016561691_19e8cbf5 web_2016561691_46bf9e6c web_2016561691_5bc20b27 web_2016561691_a02e59ec

These are the photos we took ourselves, well the photo quality isn’t very good cuz it was dark and we only had our cell phones to work with…

BUT! luckily there were some professional photographers on site and this is the beautiful picture they took990688359_ab827a82

which, I’m sure some of you may have already seen looong time ago, haha.

Well, here’s something that NONE of you guys would’ve seen before! Cuz I had it by myself all along and now I’m revealing it for the first time…!

Jang Hyuk’s video message to his fans!!

I apologize for the quality of the video, I was seeing the divine beauty standing in front of me and my hands….couldn’t control my hands…..also it was pretty noisy on the site, and Jang Hyuk speaks pretty softly…it was so hard to understand what he was saying in the video, I had to read his lips, lol. One of the staff members actually asked me to check if I could hear the sound well in the video, but I just said yes yes I can, cuz I didn’t want to bother Jang Hyuk again…he looked tired enough with the filming….

Anyways, I mean, still being able to see a video message is faaaaar better than none, right? Tell me so, so that I can feel like my courage to walk up to him and ask for it wasn’t in vain…!

I also specifically asked for a message to ‘international fans’, telling him that this time some international fans contributed in the support event as well. Although his message can apply to any fan who loves him. I mean, we are all one in that we all love him, haha.

So, enjoy. You can turn on the caption on youtube if you don’t see English subtitle. (and I am telling you, he was even more beautiful in person than in this video)

And here is an autograph for Stuck on Hyuk and Soompi…two places I asked for contribution for the event. Hey, I made him spell out those two…! He knows the existence now! (altho I can’t blame him even if he forgot, poor him, he was half zombie out of fatigue)

Ok, end of the report! If you have any question, please don’t hesitate to ask 🙂
