Fangirl Stalking Military Edition: Keeping the Home Fires Burning for Go Kyung Pyo!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Fangirl Military post, but it popped up on my radar that one of my favorite actors, Go Kyung Pyo, is enlisting. I fell for this adorkable guy many years ago and I have continued to cheer him on as he has grown as an actor.  While he’s serving his country let’s look at some dramas we can watch to help the time pass. Beware! There may be spoilers!

The Rules of Fangirl Stalking:

We will start with the dramas I think are must watch works by the actor.  Followed by the shows that could go either way.  This means that they are worth watching in my opinion, but I know there are some people who don’t like the genre.  Lastly, we will cover the dramas/movies that you really could skip and not miss much (at least in regards to the actor featured).  These are the shows that are for die-hard fans who want to watch everything.  So let’s jump into obsessing about Go Kyung Pyo!

Watch ASAP!

Chicago Typewriter

I love a love story that transcends time, and I especially love the idea of a gentleman ghost who seeks to settle the injustices of the past. Yoo Jin Oh/ Shin Yool gave me all the SLS feels and I really wanted him to have a happily ever after. Watch this one for not only the mystery and romance but also for one of the best bromances out there.

I can’t think of anyone who didn’t like this drama. It was literally drama crack for many of my friends.  Sun Woo’s character was easy to fall in love with. He was a good son, a doting brother, and a loyal friend. I’m a sucker for a good romance and the side story of Sun Woo and Bo Ra really grabbed me.  Also, the boy can KISS. You may need to fan yourself off a little after this kiss scene.

Flower Boy Next Door

I remember watching Flower Boy Next Door and thinking “where did this guy come from”?  He was a total scene stealer! We meet him as a happy and carefree artist, but we find out that his character has many layers. I will happily admit to being 100 times more invested in his romantic side story than in the OTP. I mean come one, don’t tell me that you weren’t rooting for our guy and the Editor!

Bonus: They recorded a song for this drama and I found this cute video.

Depending on my Mood

Naeil’s Cantabile

So, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this drama, but I loved his part in it.  He certainly helped keep this drama fun and interesting. He plays a rebellious violinist who keeps everyone on their toes. The picture above catches all the fun and flair of his character.

Strongest Deliveryman

Finally, a leading role! This is a drama about chasing your dreams and finding success.  I’ve actually got this one on my to be watched list because somehow I missed it during the time it was airing. I’m a full-time student so there are a few dramas I missed on the first go around. Comment below and let me know if you liked this one.

For the Die Hard Fans

Jealousy Incarnate

That look you get when everyone else liked the drama…

Any list would be incomplete without mentioning Jealousy Incarnate.  I may get kicked out of the club, but I never really got into this drama.  Don’t judge me too much fellow fangirls, it wasn’t the actors, it was the storyline, it bored me to tears. It started off strong and lost my interest somewhere in the middle.

Let’s keep the home fires burning for the guys who are serving their country by keeping them in our hearts and on our screens while they are gone.

Until our next Fangirl post,

Fangirl Stalking: Zhao Zanilia

Occasionally there comes along an actor, or in this case an actress, that just clicks with viewers. Zhao Zanilia is just such an actress. She is so tiny, but on my screen, she seems larger than life as she plays character after memorable character. Which is why she deserves her very own Fangirl Stalking post. Come join me as I share all the dramas you should be watching as well as those that you can afford to skip despite Zhao Zanilia’s talented presence.

Fangirl Stalking Military Edition: Welcome Back Oppa! Choi Siwon

DramaKimchi10

Lately I’ve been boohooing over all of our favorite actors who are leaving for the military, but now I’m going to focus on our guys who are coming home or already home. We tend to have them leave for the military in groups, but it feels like they come home slowly and one at a time.  There are many reasons to be excited for the end of an actor’s military service.  I’m completely shallow and I love seeing all the post military abs that are always showcased in the first drama after they return.  Seriously though, there is something about a man who has served his country and that level of loyalty and service changes how they play their roles.  We may see an actor in a comedy, but suddenly he is playing his character with more depth and personality than we’ve ever seen, and I think this is a good thing.

Fangirl Stalking Military Edition: Keeping the Home Fires Burning for Ji Chang Wook.

Thinking about how to say goodbye for now…

This year several of the stars that I’ve come to love are leaving for the military and it feels like drama land will be so empty without them.  I’ve been a drama fan for long enough to know that leaving for the military doesn’t have to be the kiss of death for our favorite guys.  Let’s send off Ji Chang Wook with hopes that he stays safe and happy and comes back with several new projects to delight us and hopefully one that will showcase his post military abs!

Fangirl Stalking: Kim Seul Gi

18518565_1911794102438080_1262055261_n

During a recent fangirl post I realized that Kim Seul Gi hasn’t graced our screens in a regular (not web) drama in a while.  I love her quirky roles and her cameos are always great, but I’m really excited that she has a supporting role in the new drama Lookout coming out soon.  This is one actress that I am cheering for to eventually get a role as the lead in a romantic comedy because she is so talented, but we almost always see her in supporting roles.

Fangirl Stalking Shin Won Ho

shin7

While stalking major hallyu stars is a beautiful way to spend a few weeks, sometimes it’s fun to stalk a rising star. One who has some drama credits to his name but who can be effectively stalked in a couple (sleepless) days. One who happens to be a rising k-pop star. One who- oh, I don’t know- has a porcelain baby face and a crush on our favorite mermaid. Fellow stalkers, I give you the play by play of our favorite hacker, Teo-Oh, otherwise known as Shin Won-Ho.

Fangirl Stalking: Seo In Guk

fotorcreated2

It has come to my attention from several of our readers that I have been remiss in doing a Fangirl Stalking post for my ultimate bias of all time Seo In Guk.  It isn’t because I don’t love him (as we all know that I do) but just the thought that I write about him so much that I might annoy people with my fangirl exuberance.  But obviously that is not the case since we have had requests so without further ado……here are my thoughts on Seo In Guk’s filmography!

Fangirl Stalking: Lee Min Ho

lee-min-ho

With a nickname like The God of Asia, you know Lee Min Ho is kind of a big deal. It’s not hard to see why.

Tall? Yes.

Good looking? Ohmygosh, I can’t stop staring.

Acting chops? All day long, baby.

He’s gorgeous, talented and … actually, I heard he might be kind of a jerk in real life, but with a face like that, I’ll give him a pass. He’s my original bias, the leading man who first swept me off into the world of Kdramas and as such, he will always have a special place in my heart. Continue reading

Fangirl Stalking: Wang Kai

Wang Kai rocked my drama world the first time I saw him as lonely and forgotten Prince Jing and my love for him has not waned in the year since.  Which makes him the perfect pick for my first Chinese subject of Fangirl Stalking.  So come join me as I chat about Wang Kai’s filmography and which of his dramas are a must watch.
