The Distractors’ Holiday Cut: Countdown with Oppa

jisung_dcholiday2015-01Actors become renowned for many reasons but for most actors it’s that one role, that one film, that one thing they did, that one time, that sticks to them for the remainder of their career and while those things aren’t always good, this next Oppa has certainly found a way to be better. 

After wrapping pretty much the best drama of 2015 earlier this year, he set out in preparation for the summer birth of his first child and an unprecedented solo concert in lieu of a traditional fan meeting, which was a success at the beginning of this month. 
And today, Oppa was in the news for finally getting the much deserved recognition for his talent, time and commitment! Last night, he was presented the Daesang at the MBC Awards for his stellar performance in Kill Me, Heal Me. He and his co-star Park Seo-joon also cheekily won the Best Couple Award. 


jisung_dcholiday2015-04Name: Ji Sung (Kwak Tae-geun)

Oppa Cred: February 27, 1977 

New Year Notice: Smitten

Current/Holiday Status: Last seen in Kill Me, Heal Me; currently available for 2am feedings and noontime naps with Kwak Ji-yoo. 


Unnichan: I don’t know about you, but Ji Sung is an Oppa that kind of crept up on me. He’s done lead roles since Save the Last Dance, I think but I didn’t really notice him until New Heart, and even then my highest priority was Jo Jae-hyun. Which means, it was definitely his performance in Swallow the Sun holding his own opposite Jun Kwang-rul that sold me with him. And he’s basically been on a roll (for me anyway), ever since. jisung_dcholiday2015-02

Ekun: Swallow! Lawrd Swallow! While I hated the it towards the end, my love for Ji Sung was real and true! I agree that he has been on a roll since then. His last role in Kill Me, Heal Me literally had me in tears almost every time I turned it on! Do-hyun… Se-gi…js_sgkmhm2015-01js_sgkmhm2015-02js_sgkmhm2015-03js_ynkmhm2015-01
Girl! Hahaha! That was pure talent I didn’t know he had! Hahahahaha!!!!!

Unnichan: He has to go down in history for his performance in KMHM! Yoo-na changed my life forever! Now he’s a father and hopefully, after his recent concert he will take a break. That role wiped him out (and for good reason). I am willing to give him some father drama leave for awhile. ‘Cause I definitely need him in top form for whatever he chooses next.

Ekun: He is a father now isn’t he? Yay! People procreating is always an exciting thing… As long as I am not the one having to birth the children. I agree, much needed rest is in order. I will patiently wait for his reprisal to dramas and movies. jisung_dcholiday2015-07

Unnichan: I want to believe we can be patient. He and Lee Bo-young are so adorable together, I can only imagine them doting on their newborn baby girl. Many happy returns Oppa!!!


Not Our Oppa, but My Oppa: E-kun’s Top 10 Picks

3a78fd42-f0a5-49a1-b61b-b5d91be5e57c_zpszt6kke4w Be still my beating heart! Jung Kyung-ho has this voodoo ability to make you believe in what he is selling. The only reason I continued to watch Ja Myung Go was to see him. I did not see him in Smile,You, but when he came back from military—Heartless City was on and poppin’! So were my ovaries with the Doctor’s son.jkh_dcholiday2015cover05

Kyung-ho is adorable and has qualities that seem adorkable. But do not let that hoodwink you away from his dangerous glares. I want to catch him in something this year. *fingers crossed*jkh_dcholiday2015cover03

I just love this look! The denim jacket under a sportcoat?! Genius!

The Distractors’ Cut: Kill Me, Heal Me 7-10

Unnichan: It’s been nearly three weeks since we’ve spoken about this drama and I think it’s safe to say that I absolutely love this show! I liked it from day one but I’m so caught up at the moment that I might claim a spot in my 2015 Top 5 by the time it is over. I mean, even Ji Sung had me questioning myself during episodes 7-8.

Ekun: I can’t even sum up how head over heels I am in love with this show! And I totally understand being caught up with Ji Sung during episode 7-8… Continue reading The Distractors’ Cut: Kill Me, Heal Me 7-10

Distractors’ Cut: Kill Me, Heal Me Edition

As promised, Ekun and I are back with another mental health drama discussion. With our opinion of Hyde, Jekyll and Me fairly placid, our intake of its competitor is the complete opposite. Comparisons are drawn immediately due to their premise and prognosis, but you won’t find any of that in this post. For now, we seek only to share our thoughts and impression of the highly popular and outrageously addicting Kill Me, Heal Me.

Lore In Stone Cities

Kill Me, Heal Me is on the top of the list of things that will kill me… if not my obsession with Bacon! There are so many different things that I love about this show… though it is already 6 episodes in, and we are in week 4 (episodes 7-8), I had to call on Unnichan to share in my fangirling, thinking, and rants about the show. Is anyone else out there totally obsessed with Shin Se Gi the show? Let’s all discuss:

Synopsis in the brief:

Do Hyun (Ji Sung) has dissociative identity disorder aka DID… you can imagine how this can cause him a lot of problems.


Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung Eum) is a doctor, specifically a psychiatrist, who seems to have a past with Do Hyun– along with her “twin brother” Oh Ri On (Park Seo Joon).


When Do Hyun’s aggressive personality, Shin Se Gi, puts…

The Distractors’ Cut Roundtable Edition: Hyde, Jekyll and Me

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the two biggest mental health dramas of the Winter 2015 season, look no farther, because your local Distractors have got you covered. For, there is nothing like a little assurance, in Dramaland and we have no problem deducting the stress of your mental health check-in.

This time around Ekun and her blog partner over at Stone Cities, Lore, the always amazing Drama Debussie, and I, discuss Hyun Bin‘s first drama since military service, Hyde, Jekyll and Me, co-starring his The Fatal Encounter actress, Ha Ji-min, who is notorious for being rather cold and having little spark with co-stars. The trend continues here, however, the lack of sizzle has just as much to do with the written personalities as their actors’ interpretation.
