Rest in peace, Park Yong Ha.

30 Jun

I am having the shock of my life right now. When I saw a post in allkpop that said Actor Park Yong Ha Commit Suicide, I was like ‘bleh, allkpop really loves to shock people when it’s all but a gimmick.’

Noncommittally I just click on the post and my eyeballs nearly popped out from their respective socket. The first question that comes to my mind was WHY? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHY?

I still remember him in Winter Sonata. The drama was the first drama of his that I watched, and instead of rooting for Bae Yong Joon’s character, I was rooting for him. Then came more dramas featuring him. I watched. I laughed, I smiled, I cried with his characters.

And I also remember how much I love his voice. I still remember wondering whose voice was it that tugged my heart every time I was watching All In. When I discovered it was him, I was pleasantly surprised. Happier when I heard his voice once again in Full House. And of course, in On Air.

But now, neither can I see him in a new project with Yoon Eun Hye nor can I heard him singing with that somewhat soothing husky voice.

I am asking over and over again why is he doing this… but I know the answer will remain with him forever. He was taking it all with him to his grave. Reading a report at dramabeans, I felt sorry for his family and close friends. Especially those he talked to just before the incident happen. Park Si Yeon, please be strong!

I think this post by Elizabeth Tai rang a bell. It’s sad that some people, celebrities or common folks suffered from depression and nobody around  had realised what was happening to them.

Suddenly I was reminded of late Lee Eon. It was extremely sad the fact that an accident took his life, but it would had been even more devastating if he commit suicide. Just like Choi Jin-shil, Choi Jin-young, Ahn Jae-hwan, Jang Ja-yeon and Kim Ji-hoo, to name a few.

Joining the list now was Park Yong-ha, and even though this is very heartbreaking… I felt regretful just thinking about him.

Rest in peace.


Kim So Yeon… the mistress of facets.

The title sound so corny. Hahaha ^^

Anyway~! Because today I found another display of talent from Kim So Yeon, I’m gladly updating my no-visitor blog for the sake of having fun. *(^o^)*

I think now almost everyone who follow K-drama closely knew Kim So Yeon. She is the badass anchor Young-mi in All About Eve, the tough-and-level-headed spy Seon-hwa in IRIS and the latest, adorable lawyer Hye-ri in Prosecutor Princess.

If people still stay she cannot act, they really don’t have eyes. She shows so many facets in her acting career, and nobody who watched IRIS doesn’t like Seon-hwa! To be honest, I watched IRIS because of her! Her character, albeit with limited screen time, she always manage to steal the screen with her flawless performance. Actually, in my humble opinion, she was far better than the heroine herself (sorry, Kim Tae Hee fans…).

Enough about IRIS, I just watched something really interesting in YouTube. Look what I found! The two IRIS casts who usually displayed such charismatic auras whenever they were on, Kim So Yeon and Kim Seung Woo (the guy who played the cool North Korean agent, Seon-hwa boss)!

I must admit that KCM, the singer of these MVs (they were trilogy, so… go figure) has really nice voice, albeit sorrowful. And the MV itself was WOW. Give the props to Korean for always giving all out in making extravaganza MVs. Anyway, do enjoy. If, you stop by. ^^
