I dont know why people didn't like him ..the best was that he spoke less but whenever he did it was words full of wisdom ..especially his big brother treatment towards Cindy . The couple was called the Umbrella Couple because of their romantic scene under an umbrella. That aloof, not-caring attitude and poker-face paid off totally big time in the scene w/ CEO Byun in the dressing room. He was just hilarious today letting himself go in the drunk scenes and really shining. One of the reasons I liked BSC and Cindy together better was he didn't seem so childish around her. Not to mention, she earned a friend from a celebrity whom she used to hate. I somewhat blame his dominating presence (not him obviously!) Somehow CTH makes JM's sheepishness and pigheadedness believable and forgivable to me. Are you kidding me?! Such a pity because there's so many lost potentials. http://vote.kdramastars.com/best-k-dramas-2015-first-half, Awesome finale!!

But the episodes are much longer than the average show! Actually in an old interview back in 2011, the host asked him if he thought he was handsome and he sheepishly said yes, ha! fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); Every things settled perfectly in final episode. I'm going to have risk certain death by disagreeing with you and Javabeans here: I never got an 'Answer Me' type-vibe from this series at all, since I thought it was pretty heavily geared towards THE MAIN OTP > everyone else, the entire time. His dedication to acting and desire to always challenge himself is truly admirable. The four of them had a complica… He interviews that he already regrets his choice since now the director is refusing his calls, though I’m sure his tears will dry soon enough. i don't want it to end! That's quite some achievement. Joon-mo drops in to check with Seung-chan, who’s not sure how well his shoot is going. Haha sequel Managers, now that would be interesting since they'd know all the juicy everything, Cindy's manager really was a scene stealer, I agree. @CityHunter No it's not worth watching, especially if you are a kim soo hyun fan. In it, she broke down in tears about her parents passing away, but a manager suddenly came in to stop the interview and told them to edit out those parts. Seung Chan’s episode previews are getting more and more popular, but Joon Mo is still lecturing him about petty things. 1st and foremost, TP has strong writing w/ well-developed characters and scenarios and changes to characters/relationships which seem real/plausible and good acting to go along w/ it. He’s natural and funny too. It aired on KBS2 from 15 May to 20 June 2015 on Fridays and Saturdays at 21:15 time slot for 12 episodes. I suppose if the response at home was so overwhelmingly in one direction it doesn’t make sense for producers to ignore them—domestic viewers are, to use Joon-mo’s metaphor, the regular customer base that you don’t want to alienate by trying to get too wild and crazy. - which tend to be the best K-romcoms, but don't always get the ratings/love. There is solid characterization, no unnecessary makjang like the spurned 2nd lead doing any sabotaging etc. When she worries that CEO Byun will punish him for this, he says she doesn’t scare him—not like Cindy. At KBS, the other five idols wonder if it’s true Cindy’s really joining them, and as usual, Sandara is all petty jealousy. See more ideas about yo seung ho, yoo seung ho, korean actors. I found Cindy by far the most relatable and engaging narrative of the show, which is unexpected given how she started. I hope the show won't be cancelled any soon. "I’m firmly in camp Korea. Don't get me wrong, it's been a huge success, but the combined firepower of four leads who are individually hugely popular in Korea (and in Kim Soo-hyun's case, abroad as well), is going to be very hard to replicate. This one should be even better. She gives him thirty minutes to make it to their ddukbokki rendezvous spot or cut ties forever, and he freezes in indecision. I liked the earlier PD much better but the eventual romcom turn was really good too. They shut up nervously when Ye-jin emerges and addresses the head writer, who’s worked with Joon-mo for the past five years. Himself? I’m definitely more than little sad to be done with this drama because c’mon, only 12 episodes of Kim Soo Hyun is not enough! I’m very sad of the ending ! Huge shout out to KSH who has proven yet again that just because he’s currently the biggest Hallyu star, doesnt mean he is a flowerboy who cant impress the heck outta me. Exactly - Producer, at the end, is not a revolutionary new kind of drama, but it's still a very engaging and watchable drama, which didn't suffer a last-minute slump despite the crazy live shooting schedule. All my frustrations with the lovelines has been well paid off, especially with JM and YJ. Cindy venturing out to the ent-world on her own, Hip hip Hooray! houses alone was cute, whereas that giggly-smirk w/Ye-jin was just irksome. That has a better connotation, doesn’t it? Ye-jin smiles as she walks along the now-lit path, and calls Joon-mo late that night while he’s already asleep. Joon-mo interviews that they’ve bought themselves three more months, and the response to the show is on an upswing, with people saying that it’s changed for the better. But gradually as we get to know Cindy more, we see that it was IU's acting that was stiff, but Cindy's mask that makes it look like that. T_T, I think, Cindy's Arc saved Producer for being the Producer. hahahah. and I think there could have been more to this show.... but I don't know, I'm not s PD CTH unfortunately got pushed in the background for so many episodes, which was just so unfair. I have to admit too that I nearly gave up watching it (on Season 2), but then the Season 3 starts and I have to say I love it! Seung-chan bemoans his seven-year program coming to an end, only to have Song Hae say his has been 35 years. I didnt think it was that believable that she would crush so hard on seung chan though so that loveline would have not made much sense to me if it had been realized. He was frustrating in most of the earlier episodes because he was never really developed well enough for us to understand what's so great about him. And oh Da Jung, I've such mixed feelings for your general brattiness, but I guess you've got your heart in the right place and is just way too straightforward. I'm glad that yejin got the confession she'd been waiting forever . CP Kim shakes his head in an interview, saying that you don’t realize what love is (as in, ratings) until you lose it. The drama was broadcasted … Though it's weird to think their main competition - and very legitimate competition at that - is tvN (I believe Three Meals A Day airs in the same time slot, and picks up double digit ratings. She also dated many strong guys before and even entered the GOH tournament … Another bestfriend-turn-lover story?

Totally agree with you there. It's a shame people get so attached to actors that they feel a realized love-line is often a requirement, or an acceptable form of measuring quality. I think he wanted to shed his Do Min-joon persona that was so present before this and felt Seung-chan was the perfect character for that. ), 'especially when so many idols even below IU’s level won’t touch anything less than a lead role in a drama.'.

Change ), You are commenting using your Twitter account. ?? But then, Seung Chan takes the luggage and carries it for her! “Your methods were wrong, but I know you loved me. Ha ha. I think it's obvious CTH got the short end of the stick here in terms of character and screen-time, but GHJ did too in my opinion. Me too. Many have expressed their dissatisfaction at Jun-moo because of his passivity but now that the show has ended with this reveal, I think it would be interesting to watch the show again with the knowledge that it was Jun-moo all this time who had the unrequited love for Yejin for 25 years.
