[Translation] Lee Joon Gi – Arena Homme September 2016 interview

Misunderstanding prohibited

If you thought you knew Lee Joon Gi, you actually didn’t know him at all.

Did you go for tanning?
I got a little dark because of filming.

I never imagined that dark skin would suit you.
Is it alright? Haha

[News/Trans] Two weeks’ Lee Junki “As a 32-year-old romantic fool, acting as a dad was difficult” (Part 1)

Translator’s note: Lee Junki’s interviews are never ending! In part 1 of his interview with TVReport, Lee Junki talks about his close brush with death, the ridiculousness of Two Weeks, happenings on set, his “rivalry” with Park Hasun for their onscreen daughter, and is praised to the heavens by the reporter.

[News/Trans] Dependable actor Lee Junki “There are no limits, only challenges”

“I will give it my all”; Junki received praise for his passionate action and emotional acting in “Two Weeks”.

More than breaking the limits of his acting, actor Lee Junki steps forth to greater heights.

In all his works, Lee Junki has always managed to break away from his own image and make a perfect transformation into his characters. He has transformed from the shy and determined clown in “The King and the Clown”, to the tender youth filled with a strong sense of justice in “May 18”, the NIS agent filled with deep emotional scars and uncontrollable rage in “Time Between Dog and Wolf”, to the magistrate gifted with exceptional intuition and insight in “Arang and the Magistrate”.

[Fangirl Musings/Review] Two Weeks episodes 19&20 (finale)

TwoWeeks_E16_END.avi_000046179

We’ve finally reached the end! It seems like my life got shortened by two years from watching this show. This D-Day sign made me feel both relieved and sad that the show was ending, that Jang Taesan’s journey of suffering was finally ending, for better or worse. Overall, I was very pleased with this show and it’s definitely going into my list of Top 10 Kdramas. The top-notch acting, great writing with twists and turns in every episode, plus the nice balance of action and emotional scenes in this show make this worth a rewatch. Oh, and how could I forget the sizzling, fluffy cotton-candy, “awww”-inducing chemistry of this year’s unlikely kdrama couple — Soojin and Taesan!

My verdict:

Overall: 9/10
Enjoyment: 10/10

[Fangirl Musings] Two Weeks Episodes 13&14

TwoWeeks_E14.avi_001449649

I really enjoyed these two episodes much more than those from the past two weeks. Writer is pulling out all the stops to shift the final leg of the story into high gear. All the action is back again, with barely enough time for my heart to take a rest. The father-daughter relationship also advances to a new level, and these scenes continue to wrangle tears out of me.

[Fangirl Musings] Two Weeks Episodes 11&12

TwoWeeks_E12.avi_001206172

Is it just me or does the second half of this series seem to zoom past in a flash? We are only left with two more weeks to the finale!! I’ll be sad to bid this show goodbye. I’m still enjoying this show, although not as much as I did with the first half. The acting and pacing are still top-notch, but this show is starting to demand for a lot of suspension of belief from its viewers.

[Fangirl Musings] Two Weeks Episodes 9&10

TwoWeeks_E09.avi_001224724

This week’s episodes are noticeably less action-packed than the previous ones as Taesan is now becoming an expert at his game of hide-and-seek as he starts playing mind games with his pursuers. There’s enough suspense to keep the show exciting with more flashbacks than usual to calm my nerves in between. But the writer obviously overestimated my level of intelligence as a viewer because I was left terribly confused in episode 10. I had to watch it twice to fully understand what happened. Show sure gave my brain a good workout.

[Fangirl Musings] Two Weeks Episodes 7&8

TwoWeeks_E08.avi_000378745

Oh my, what an episode! Episode 7 was alright, but episode 8 really took things up a notch — it’s probably my favourite episode of the series to date! Paths cross for our hero, his enemies and his potential allies, and we learn more about our tortured hero through flashbacks that put a nice saccharine touch to an otherwise adrenaline-filled show this week.
