A Fan Girl Goes to the Theatre – Shinheung Military Academy Musical

When the stars align and life hands you the opportunity to see one of your favorite Korean actors perform live, you jump on it!  I was recently able to snag tickets and attend the Daejeon performance of Shinheung Military Academy Musical, starring Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, and Sung Gyu (from the k-pop group Infinite).  Since these three actor/singers are currently in the middle of their mandatory military service and have been MIA from our drama screens, it was an especially delightful way to end my time in Korea.  AND being able to watch Ji Chang Wook act on the stage, right in front of me, was all that I dreamed it would be!

Fangirl Stalking: Choi Jin Hyuk

It’s no secret amongst my fellow fangirls that I am in L-O-V-E with the currently airing Kdrama Devilish Joy.  Why?  I present to you Exhibit A:  Choi Jin Hyuk.  This actor commands each different character given him, captivating the viewers with a quiet strength and unwavering determination.
