Fangirl Stalking: Kim Seon Ho

Watching dramas is my favorite pastime. And even though I greatly appreciate the more popular Hallyu actors and actresses, I often find myself bolting down random rabbit trails to fangirl over lesser-known (and under-appreciated) talent. Enter novice actor Kim Seon Ho.  Admittedly, my soft spot for dimples may have be the reason I first took notice of him!  But I’ve been watching his progression through Kdramas since his very first role in Chief Kim.  A little bit goofy and awkward, but with an abundance of sweetness and sincerity, his characters always have surprising depth and leave a lasting impression.  So come join me as introduce the charming and captivating Kim Seon Ho!

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. Yet, when needed, he is able to easily balance out his imposing stature with a sweet and gentle empathy.  Also, I would be totally remiss if I didn’t mention his voice–it’s a-MAZ-ing!  The magnetism of his rich rumble coupled with his crinkly-eyed smiles is truly exquisite.  Since I’m obviously smitten, I may have, not-so-subtly, hinted that a fangirl stalking post for this particular actor was essential for the blog.  So come join me as I gush unapologetically about Choi Jin Hyuk!

Fangirl Stalking: Ji Soo

Early in my kdrama career, I watched Scarlet Heart, closely followed by Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I was young(er), I was impressionable, and there was this one common denominator between the two dramas — Ji Soo. There’s plenty of eye candy in both dramas, of course, but Ji Soo’s playful gravity, combined with his warm good looks, drew my attention. So come join me as I indulge in a little fangirl stalking of Ji Soo.

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.
