I would love to know everyone else's thoughts on the drama so far...
Thanks for the link, hobbitwebgirly.

Well, I'm guessing that Fany is the guy in the last section of Episode 2? I like the new shorter hairstyles on these guys, especially the lead actor.

As for Hwanhee, I've watched it very carefully, trying to find a trace of him and couldn't, except the actor had a husky, lower-register speaking voice so I presumed this must be Fany.

I'll always like his singing but my feeling from this brief viewing of "Saranghae" is that I'm watching a stranger I've never seen before—one that so far doesn't particularly grab my attention. That's just my first impression. It could change... though when I first laid eyes on the old Fany there was magic in him that I can't find in the "new" Fany.

As for the drama itself, I'll have to hold my opinion for a while. I'm not exactly thrilled about the storyline of a guy getting a girl pregnant just when he discovers the "love of his life." It's also kind of disconcerting to me to see the lead actress is the same one from Over the Rainbow who was in love with Rex.

I guess this is supposed to be a comedy, but I'll have to review the first episodes again more carefully and try to be more objective.

Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


I only watch the drama because of Hwanhee. To me, this is a challenge role for him - especially for somebody like him (Hwanhee) who hardly talks. Even Brian was saying Hwanhee is shy and talks less - but in this drama, he is such a dork - irresponsible and carefree divorced father. He can deliver his dialogues non-stop. I guess he spent a lot of time practicing on portraying that role. Because I'm a Hwanhee fanatic, I watch the unsubbed episodes at veoh.

BTW, Hwanhee (and the other half of FTTS) will be performing at the Walt Disney Concert Hall sometime in July - then after that, at the Chabot Theater in SF.

K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


Wow the Walt Disney concert hall! Did you already get tickets viyra. I agree with you, it seems like this role is challenging for him and I hate to say this, but I may be falling all over again for the new Hwan Hee. You know, it's not the same spark and charisma as the other one, but there is still something about him...almost like a whole different and new spark and charisma. I can't wait to discover more of it in the drama.

Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


hobbitwebgirly I sent you a PM -

tickets don't go on sale until next month. Korea Times is doing this concert. They have finally given up on fans like me who bug them about having these guys come for their own concert.

I liked Hwanhee then and I like him more now because he continues to show his fans he is not just a singer. I can appreciate him more now that he is showing that other side of him in this drama.

Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


Viyra I tried to pm you back, but it said your box was full. I LOOVED those pictures. He may not look the same, but there is still just something about him. I may be falling in love with him all over again. Maybe its newfound confidence he gained from the surgeries. If it helped him, I guess...its okay. To me he is beautiful anyway, but confidence is another form of beauty. Thanks so much for those pics, I may make you a wallpaper this week with those pics. I hope the concert is not too much money. Keep us up to date, I would love to go.

posticon Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


I know it's been awhile, but Viyra did you end up going to the concert? I couldnt go. Ive been really sick, but if you wen I would love to hear a synopsis of it. Did anyone watch the whole drama of Saranghae? I got kind of bored at episode 3, so I didnt, despite my ever growing love for the new Hwan Hee.

Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


I went to the concert. What else would you expect from Hwanhee and Brian but awesome performance.

WDCH is a venue for symphonies, operas, etc. and it is a good venue for the boys's amazing voices. They are very strict, tho' - no pictures, no vids - others were able to take vids and pics secretly. My friends and I were seated on the second row right hand side (Hwanhee side) and can see Hwanhee come in and out the door to change.

Re: K Star: 환희 Hwan Hee


Just a note that Hwanhee is in the MBC drama Stormy Lovers. It's currently airing Mon-Fri on the MBCD 18.3 channel (terrestrial TV). It's good to see him!

Here's a YouTube video from Stormy Lovers, Ep 2

Here's a more interesting behind the scenes video while filming Stormy Lovers.
