I've been sort of wanting to do a series for Omona for a while but didn't know what I could really contribute (besides my sporadic 'NEW MUSIC?!' posts, lol). In light of the whole Kyle Hanagami/A-Pink incident (and others like it), I think I found something I'd like to do. Basically, I'm going to spotlight a Korean choreographer (based in Korea) and bring to ya'll some of the talent that is going seemingly untapped over there...at least by the entertainment industry. I'm a dancer who watches way too many dance videos anyway so, you know...always nice to share!

It’s understandable to lose your faith in love after being stood up on your wedding day. Ban Ji Yeon (Uhm Jung Hwa) was devastated and then believed that marriage wasn’t for her. The 39-year-old has focused on her career as a reporter, so seriously that her colleagues refer her to as a witch, and put her romantic life on the back burner. But when Ji Yeon meets Yoon Dong Ha (Park Seo Joon), the 25-year-old owner of a small errand center, she finds herself in an unexpected December-June relationship that could thaw her hardened heart. But will her life become further complicated by the return of her former fiancé, No Shi Hoon (Han Jae Suk)?
“A Witch’s Romance,” also known as "A Witch's Love" and “My Queen,” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Lee Jeong Hyo. It is a remake of the hit Taiwanese drama “My Queen.”

"My personality isn′t really like what′s been seen, but it′s closer to an image of a little boy. With this character, I was most comfortable and I enjoyed it because I was able to think more and act," said Lee Soo Hyuk. "I′m not at the level yet to create my own character though."

"I really wanted to play a role that was human like, but I was also a ghost or a murderer," explained Lee Soo Hyuk on his past roles. "But with this project, I think I will be able to show more natural sides to me."

Yoo Jae Won PD also added, "Soo Hyuk comes out surprisingly adorable. With smiley eyes too," and "If there′s a surprise twist in this drama, that would be it."

tvNs′ High Schooler King of Life is about a 18-year old teen who much lead a double life of a student and a company head.

[Lee Soo Hyuk is Happy for His Model Friends′ Success in Acting]

Concerning his model-turned-actor friends′ success, Lee Soo Hyuk revealed that he′s happy.

On June 11, Lee Soo Hyuk attended the press conference for tvN′s High Schooler King of Life at the Imperial Hotel in Gangnam.

He shared, "Kim Young Kwang and I read some of the replies. They said that there are two submarines carrying nuclear bombs in the modeling world, and that was me and Young Kwang."

"We carry nukes, but are always submerged. A lot of people say, ′You′re rivals. Don′t you feel a sense of competition?′ but it′s actually fun for us," said Lee Soo Hyuk. "We share about our casting offers and help each other find the acting points. There′s a lot to learn from Kim Woo Bin and Sung Jun, and we′re all doing well. We help each other. We have a good relationship."

"Each of us are different, so the order of when we receive the scripts are also different. Sometimes scripts that went to Kim Woo Bin come my way, and sometimes scripts I had go to Kim Woo Bin. It′s fun seeing things like that," said Lee Soo Hyuk.

"For us, we′re just happy to be receiving attention. So since I′m carrying nukes, I′ll continue to work hard."

High Schooler King of Life is about a teenager who lives a double life as a student and a high positioned office worker. The drama was written by Yang Hee SEung and Cho Sung Hee, who have created hit sitcoms such as Soon Poon Gynecology, Three Men, Three Women, and the High Kick series.

K-Pop Vocal Analysis: Judging Idols, Most Underrated/Overrated Singers, and More

We all have our own opinions as to which idols are the best and worst singers in K-Pop. On first glance, these opinions might appear to be totally subjective — one person’s pick for best K-Pop singer can seem light-years away from the next person’s. However, most of us tend to agree that certain vocalists are clearly better than the rest, and of course there are a few unfortunate idols whose singing “ability” can only be defended by the staunchest of fans.

This is a long but interesting read.

JSYK they are analysing the singers as "vocalists" and not as "singers", they're analysing their technique and comparing them to classical singers.IMO analysing kpop singers (or any pop singer for that matter) with the criteria of a classical singer is like if a classical percussionist analysed a rock drummer. But that's just me.
