The Fangirl Verdict

Completely biased reviews and fangirling


So besides my list of k-loves, I do also appreciate a lot of the other k-men. Just on a much more.. er, shallow level. πŸ˜‰

This is where I share The Pretty. No personal love story, no comments on their real-life personalities, nor their acting / singing abilities. Just Pure Pretty.

Hope you enjoy gazing and appreciating and.. (hee) ogling with me.

  2. I humbly request some “Pure Pretty” for Joo Won, please. He’s so underappreciated, but incredibly talented! Kfangurl, I *love* your reviews because they are well-written and in-depth. This new section has me very excited! And yeah, it’s a shame that Song Seung Hun can’t act very well (Dr. Jin = disaster), but he sure is *gorgeous* …


    • Oh, I do enjoy Joo Won, and will keep your request in mind, sarah! πŸ™‚ He really is a talented actor. He blew me away in Gaksital, and I loved his character in Ojakgyo Brothers, SO MUCH. ❀ I love that he takes his craft so seriously, and that he applies himself to it so passionately!

      Yay that you’re enjoying the Pure Pretty series – feel free to float more requests as you feel inspired. I can’t promise I’ll be able to fulfill every request, but I’ll definitely do what I can! ^^ Thanks for the encouragement on the reviews, sarah.. I’ve been experimenting with review formats and styles, so the in-depth-ness will vary. But it’s really good to know that when I do get inspired to go the way of the epic review, that it’s welcome and appreciated! πŸ˜€


      • So Ji Sub is so hot!! Love him to bits in “Ghost.” And so is Joo Won… Does that count as two people for Joo Won on pure pretty? Even if it’s just me voting twice? 😦


        • Giggle. I can so tell that you’d really, really like Joo Won featured! πŸ˜€ I do have plans for Joo Won up my sleeve, so look out for when he finally makes his appearance! πŸ˜‰


      • Oh My. If ever you do come out with a Pure Pretty for Joo Won, YOU KNOW I’ll be all over THAT. *hysterical laughter.* It’s the season of giving, too. No pressure… πŸ˜‰ kidding.

  7. Would like you to consider also adding Lee Min Ho to pure pretty, by the way love your reviews, you new insights to the kdramas


    • Hey there Kaffy, welcome to the blog! πŸ˜€ Glad you’re liking the reviews and the Pure Pretty.. Lee Min Ho is currently on my bad side coz I was underwhelmed by his performance in Heirs. BUT, don’t worry, coz I’m a fickle and fairly forgiving fangirl (wow, how about THAT, for alliteration! XD ) and all it’ll take is him doing well in his next show, and I should be all ready to showcase him as a Pure Pretty poster boy! πŸ˜‰

  17. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any recommendations? Thanks!


  18. I hope someday Yin Ji Han graces this site. πŸ™‚


    • Hm.. Do you mean Jin Yi Han? Coz if you do, then Eep. Coz currently I feel somewhat allergic to Jin Yi Han. It just so happens that I haven’t liked him in the shows that I’ve seen him in, which are Hooray for Love (douchey ex-boyfriend), Master’s Sun (also douchey ex-boyfriend) and My Secret Hotel (somewhat annoying ex-husband). πŸ˜› I won’t say never, though. If he ever blows me away in a role, I might just come around to his charms. πŸ˜‰


      • Yep. Oops, typo there. I hope Empress Ki changes your mind. Right, I hated his ex-boyfriend stint in Master’s Sun too. Haven’t checked out My Secret Hotel. Haven’t even made it to A New Leaf in my shortlist. But his first work is one drama I really like. Have you seen Conspiracy in the Court?


        • Conspiracy in the Court is on my neverending watch list, and so is Empress Ki. So yes, I might change my mind yet, about him! πŸ˜‰ Don’t bother with My Secret Hotel. It’s quite terrible. I ended up dropping it.


          • You should watch it. It’s only 8 episodes but not a minute wasted. I found it really really good. I liken it to The Princess Man in terms of the plot and White Christmas in terms of production value.

            Okay, I’ll heed your advice on My Secret Hotel. I checked out the first episode of A New Leaf. It was good and I enjoyed it with its power house cast. However, I’ve read it was not able to maintain its intensity towards the end.m 😦


            • Ooh, TPM and White Christmas? Those are pretty solid comparisons! I did really enjoy TPM, and I thought the WC production values were very high. CotC has been on my watch list for a long time, I just never seem to get around to it, with all the other shows that I want to check out. I will definitely watch it some time πŸ™‚

              Yes, I heard a lot of meh reactions to A New Leaf. But then again, I also heard a lot of meh reactions to Blood, and you managed to finish that one quite well, in that you didn’t seem to want to tear your hair out! πŸ˜‰ If you liked the first ep, maybe A New Leaf might work for you? πŸ™‚


              • I really suggest you put it up on that long list. Besides, its really short. There are two versions, the original and the director’s cut. If I already knew you girl, I’m sure you’ll love it. I can already see a review, maybe even an epic one?

                Oh, Blood. Well at least the story was okay. In A New Leaf, reading the reviews makes me think its the other way around. Or perhaps because it was cut short. Maybe, I’ll just rewatch CitC but I should first find a more modern English sub. Hehehe


                • You make an excellent point. It IS short, and you DO know my taste in dramas, kaiaraia! Okie dokes.. I will bump it up on the watchlist! ^^ I just checked, and I think I have the same Shakespearean-ish subs. I only scanned the subs for E1, but it doesn’t seem so bad. But then again, I actually loved the subs for Chuno, which other people found too Shakespearean. Maybe I will love this show after all? XD Y’know, I think it’s the word “conspiracy” that holds me back. I don’t care for political stories much, and the word “conspiracy” implies a political one.

                  Ah yes, I do think you might be right. Kim Myung Min’s a great actor, but I think the story wasn’t so great in A New Leaf. πŸ˜›


                  • Well, yes, it is political. But one that sets forth changes in a nation, much like in Tree, though this is a tragic one. A beautiful tragedy. I had scribbled some thoughts about it but its quite spoilery so I’ll just save that for later. Shakepearean English is beautiful but pretty daunting and distracting cause I have to pause every so often to check the dictionary, hehehe. Especially so for this intense drama. Anyways, at least I get to watch a drama and enrich my vocabulary at the same time. I just hope the term is not to archaic that should I use it I will be understood. πŸ™‚


                    • Ooh, TREE! I really enjoyed Tree, so that comparison ups the appeal of this show even more! Yes ma’am, I will make this more of a priority on the watch list. Currently I’m maxed out, but when I clear something off my drama plate, I’ll be sure to check this one out!! Also, let’s see whether I’ll do ok with those subs.. I wonder if I’ll need a dictionary too! XD


  19. May I suggest two “Pure Pretty” posts with the leads from “She Was Pretty” aka Choi Si Won and Park Seo Joon? No rush, whenever you get to it. It would be something to tide us over until CSW comes back from the military.

  21. Annyeong kfangirl! Stumbling upon your blog, this “pure pretty” section has caught my interest and it’s such a nice read ❀I am a first-time reader, btw. So glad to know that we have the same preference of lovely and pure pretty korean guys! I hope you’ll sooner add Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin in your list!


    • Hey there Rica! I just happened to see your comment come in as it did – you’ll be pleased to know that both LJS & Woob have posts of their own, in the k-loves section, which you can find here. πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy the posts! And, welcome to the blog!


  22. What about Park Bo Geum? He’s so pretty it hurts.


  23. How about Won bin?? πŸ˜€ My first Korean love


  24. can i pitch in for my first love Lee Minho… he is very very pretty…


    • Can I be an unfangirl and say bleeeeech Min Ho, awful acting and so much plastic. I can usually look past plastic if they can act. But…. please don’t sully
      This beautiful list with Min Ho.

      I know. If I can’t say nice things, don’t say them.
      I accept my scolding.


    • Hi there denise.. Welcome to the blog! πŸ™‚ Thanks for enjoying the Pretty! I’m sorry to say that I currently don’t have immediate plans for a Pure Pretty post, as Real Life is super hectic and I’m working on just keeping relatively updated with my reviews. πŸ˜…

  25. yes yes yes to Park Bo Gum, and…..Lee Seung Gi pretty please?


  26. Choi Si Won…. second lead syndrome omo…… worst except for Um Ki Joon in “Scent of a Woman.”


    • Oh yes. Siwon in She Was Pretty is SUCH an amazing second lead. I don’t often love 2nd leads more than the main lead, but I definitely liked his character more intently than I did Park Seo Joon’s! ❀


      • You take your time, Fangirl. If you need any help with the site, just let me know. I can do bits here and there. That sounds pompous, but I’ve done fan work in the past, so I know how it goes and would love to give back.

        Be well!!!


        • Oh, if you were looking for the Siwon Pure Pretty post, you can find that here. As for help with the site, that is so sweet of you! I will let you know if and when I need your help! ❀

  29. Hi, I must say I love all your posts. What do you think of doing a feature on Lee Dong Work? As additional enticement I’m sure you’ll get to indulge in Gong Woo too for part of your search…


    • Hi Saumyalina, thanks for enjoying the posts! Thanks for the suggestion on Lee Dong Wook.. I’ll keep that in mind. I feel like I might get suitably inspired, since I plan to check out Touch Your Heart soonish! πŸ˜‰
