According to Dramabeans she’s been offered the role and shown interest but is yet to formally accept it.

Will she make a good  Iwaya Sumire?

Since I’ve never seen her in anything I really can’t guess but I’ll have to say she really looks the part!! If she’s as tall as she looks in her pics and they put her in heels, they might even be able to address the height issue (Iwaya is supposed to be taller than Momo). Plus it seems she is also a fluent English speaker just as Iwaya is in the manga (Need to confirm this).

I only hope she and Sukkie have the right chemistry to make this film the hit the dorama was in Japan.

Well it’s everywhere now but I’m still going to say it here because dammit I’m an Eel (though unofficial as of yet) and it’s my job!

It’s finally been announced officially that my Sukkie will be Momo in Korean Movie version of J-Drama, “Kimi Wa Petto.” I am, as I was before, all rainbows, ponies and swallows about this!!!^^

Here are the reasons why I know he is absolutely going to nail this role:

1. His amazing level of commitment to every role he takes

2. His performance in “Going Crazy Waiting” where he plays a youth in a relationship with an older woman with charm and conviction.

3. Sukkie charming the socks of the the noonas and ahjummas on Ideal Type World Cup when he shows them how he does aegyo (cute expression) via texting (ahh – that bit totally got me too! Lolol!!!)

and finally

4. Hullo??? Look at him!!!!!!

credit: once again, I’m sorryyyyyyyy!!! T T

I will admit it, I was a little nervous about the ballet thing. Sukkie is a trooper and he looks cute as hell when he’s doing routines to sexy back or mimicking abracadabra – but he’s no ballerina! But I hear he’s already in training so I’ve decided to put my faith in him. I’m sure he’ll stun us as usual in the end!!!

So excited to see a new Jang Keun Suk! This one with ballet muscles!!! Waaaaaahhhh!!! I wish they’d start filming already!!!

The source of this news for me was Dramabeans.

And now for your enjoyment! Cute bedroom moment from Going crazy waiting! This could have been his audition for Kimi Wa Petto!!!

Just Sukkielicious!

Anyone Watching “Oh! My Lady” ?

It’s a Kdorama that’s airing right now and I thought I’d try it out because it was mentioned on dramabeans. A girl has to do something while she’s waiting for Jang Keun Suk to put out some more work already!!! (Come on Sukkie! How about an MV or a CF!! We need more product!!!)

Hehehe, well, I’m four episodes in and I remember now why I HATE watching things that are currently airing bcos now I’m dying to see what happens next!

The premise at least is preparing me for the coming of the Korean “Kimi wa Petto” as it involves a young, hot guy and a Noona (older lady). Well…an Ahjumma to be precise (a woman about 30s/40s). Here is the synopsis from drama wiki:

A spunky 35-year-old housewife, Yoon Gae Hwa, takes on the job of manager to prickly top star Sung Min Woo in order to earn enough money to regain custody of her child from her ex-husband. Romantic hijinks and hilarity ensues when they find themselves in an awkward living situation as Min Woo pays Gae Hwa to take care of his daughter, Ye Eun.

The Ahjumma is played by cute Chae Rim while the top star is played by real life top idol, Super Junior’s Choi Si Won, he of the dimples and the belief defying abs.

Please don’t imagine that this is in anyway a deep show. It is a typical, shallow, cliched romcom with laughs and hi-jinks that does not take itself that seriously. That said, I am finding it very entertaining.

Here are my top reasons for you to check out OML:

Fan Service:

My comment here? “Oh flegibberty…” because some things can not be expressed in words that mean things! And is she seriously supposed to answer that?

Every episode so far except episode 4 has featured a more than satisfying glance of the famous abs. I don’t care how above fan service you consider yourself to be ladies but Siwon’s abs are a wonder to behold and it is worth checking out this show just for a glimpse of them. This is just plain truth

Possibly the World’s Cutest Little Girl:

Oh my God, I dare you to show me a little girl more adorable than sad little Ye Eun played with cry baby aplomb by tiny actress Kim Yoo Bin. In fact it is a ridiculous aspect of the plot that this kid was abandoned!!! Who wouldn’t want her???? Oh and the adorable little wardrobe that the show’s stylist has hooked her up with has such incredible awwwwwwwww factor!!! Loves it and her!!!!!!!!! ^________^

Love Triangle:

Ooh!! Big surprise there! But lets not be cynical, after all this is what we watch dorama’s for, right? So they haven’t come out and said it but it’s looking like both Siwon’s top star and the producer of the show he’s working on, an older but still dapper guy played by Lee Hyun Woo, will be battling for our cute ahjumma’s affection. And of course they each have an evil lady in their life whom we will love to hate so the set up is quite complete.

Anyways, this is where I am patiently following this show. It’s a really great site cos you get to see the translator’s comments as you’re watching and they are hilarious!!!


Kimi Wa Petto, Sukkie and the Noonas.

If you’re familiar with Kimi wa Petto and also with Jang Keun Suk, then I probably don’t need to follow up my post header with an article. This smilie should suffice:


But I’ll do the article anyway.

Fangirl world is a mystical place.

It all started with the josei manga “kimi wa petto” (by Yayoi Ogawa) which has been on my must read list for the looooongest time. It’s a story about a beautiful, independent career woman with a not so great life who finds an injured bishounen and adopts him as her pet. For goodness sake, the first chapter of this manga is called ‘How to Raise a Bishounen” so anyone that knows me immediately gets this book was obviously written for me, right?

Only thing is fate keeps me and this manga apart. Every time I want to start it I’m having an internet blackout period or I’m completely buried at work. So years pass by and I more or less forget about it.

Then this year I discover (as the Taiwanese Press call him) Korean flower boy Jang Keun Suk or (as international fans like to call him) Sukkie. After seeing most of his work and more or less binging on his media exposure I immediately transformed into a shameless fangirl of what would be referred to in Korea as the Noona variety.  And I quickly found out I was not alone. Most of the other shameless Noona fangirls out there seemed to be thinking the same thing. We would adopt Sukkie as a pet in a second.

Then when Sukkie (calculatedly?) expressed the desire to act the role of a young man in love with a noona, after much waaaaaaahhhhhing!!! and kyaaaaaaaaaaaaing!!!, visions of kimi wa petto danced before our eyes and some of us even dared to hope that  we may see with our eyes what our minds had long fantasized.

But it had already been announced that the show was going to be remade in Korea and that precious role was to go to  cute Kim Hyun Joong of Kpop boygroup SS501. So the truth was we were being unrealistic.

But then this morning, like our cups of joy were not already full from images and footage of Sukkie’s truimphant fan meet in Taiwan, the news arrived and our cups officially runneth over!!! Lol!

Sukkie will be Momo (the pet bishounen) and all is right with the world.

He’s already been playing with the mop like hairdo. We know he has the acting chops and the charisma to pull off the role though the general consensus is that he has big shoes to fill in following Matsumoto Jun’s reportedly outstanding performance in the japanese dorama version. My only worry is the ballet but we’ll see, I guess.

I’m reading the manga now and will follow up with the dorama then i don’t know what I’ll do to contain my anticipation!!! I guess go on forums and natter on endlessly about it.

But for now, I am purring in contentment.:3

UPDATE: Wow! Almost forgot to mention. The sensational news was broken by the dramabeans blog, a good source of all things Kpop and Dorama!
