Feb 28, · With AKP fully branching out from K-dramas to TW-dramas in recent weeks, culminating in my decision to recap Sunny Happiness, I think it’s fitting to devote a post to a collection of Taiwan actors who breathe life into dramas and movies from that region of the world.I’ll be giving my personal impressions of these actors, as well as a brief synopsis of their filmographies.
They are listed in the order of their release. Suddenly At Midnight Seon-hee, the wife of a wealthy butterfly researcher is pleased to hear that her husband has contracted a new maid. The girl is young and pretty, though she comes with a tragic past: The couple and their daughter welcome the orphaned young woman into their home, but Seon-hee begins to have misgivings later when she sees a strange wooden doll that the maid has brought with her.
For several weeks she has been having nightmares and visions about this very same doll. Korean horror films from the 70s and 80s can be memorable, fascinating, and at times even cute, but they are rarely frightening. Suddenly At Midnight is an exception. As in Kim Ki-young’s The Housemaid and its subsequent remakings, director Ko Young-nam locates the film’s horror within the space of a happy, wealthy family home that is contaminated from the outside, but he takes the film in different directions than that pursued by Kim.
The result is a mysterious psychological study built on the wife’s suspicions, that beguiles the viewer right up to its bizarre closing image. Director Ko — Korea’s most prolific director ever with films to his credit — has a good feel for how to create tension from precise editing and the patient accumulation of evocative details. Actress Kim Young-ae also gives a convincing performance as the panicked wife. Her fears seem plausible, which makes the film all that much more effective.
I do get the sense, though, that the final reel which had modern-day audiences jumping in fright could have been even scarier if less slow motion had been used. On another level, an aspect of the film that is just as unsettling as its horror elements is its voyeuristic focus on the young maid.

She desperately wants to become a willowy and elegant woman, which is the ideal type of her crush, In Guk-doo, a police officer.

A great number of TV and film stars also owe their current popularity to the success of TV dramas. This page is devoted to providing some subjective reviews of the better-known dramas. For more comprehensive English-language websites on TV dramas, visit Soompi. I loved Ruler of Your Own World, but it was darker, more serious, more dramatic. Coffee Prince is pure fun, and its popularity shows that many Koreans agree with me. The premise is that Go Eun Chan Yoon Eun-hye, Palace , by default the head of her family after her father died when she was 16, is often mistaken for a boy.
A troublesome but eventually touching drama, Fated to Love You is about the unexpected relationship of two people when a chaebol heir, Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk), and a “post-it” girl, Kim Min Young (Jang Na Ra), are forced to marry after their drunken one night stand resulting to an unexpected pregnancy.
However, I can happily watch any of these men below in any drama, as long as the drama is good. I like Ethan, who has had to work harder than his two best friends Joe Cheng and Mike He, to succeed in show biz all three belong to the same agency and are all model-turned-actors, but Ethan was blacklisted because he refused to break up with girlfriend Tiffany Hsu. He has great chemistry with any co-star, and is a genuine acting talent with some still unpolished rough edges.
My favorite Ethan performance is in My Queen, where he redefined the noona-dongsaeng romance. It was his first acting role, and he had incredible screen presence and great chemistry with his co-stars Zai Zai and Sonia Sui. He beat out Zai Zai for the Golden Bell Best Actor Award that year still the biggest upset of all time , and followed it up with a box office smash movie Monga with Ethan.
Got his big break a decade ago in Meteor Garden, and followed up with both onscreen success with various dramas as well as popstar success as the leader of the boyband F4 along with Zai Zai, Ken Zhu, and Vanness Wu.
