hi this is Cinderellala.

I don’t know where to post my comments on Fashion 70s. I have to say this has become one of my all time favorite dramas. for some this is not an easy drama to watch, but i somehow found myself getting engrossed with each twist and turn. not to mention the love angle between the leads, Dong-young and Do-mi. I likewise love Kang-hee and Jang Bin, plus the mother Yang-ja and the father, and the curly haired student, and also Jang Bong-shil.

My favorite part should be the helicopter scene the first time DY met DM in Mongkol Island, and the time both promised to stay. that was very sweet.

Is JJM close to the cast? I understand he said he’s closer to Lee Yo-won than Kim Ah-joong. she’s among his Twitter friends, right? how about CJM, is he close to him too and Kim Min-jung?

I find Fashion 70s a memorable drama for its beautiful story, and for reintroducing JJM to me.

Hello, it’s me again. Thank you, LoveJJM for this thread. I’ll try to gather all my thoughts re Fashion 70s and share more insights. it’s been 2 weeks since I’ve finished the marathon and I’m still so in love with it.

i’ve watched quite a number of K-series and hardly have i come across a storyline as engaging as Fashion 70s. The plot and the subplots were woven seamlessly that I found myself searching for the name of its screenwriter, whose name Jung Sung-hee I’ve memorized the whole night so I won’t give her (not sure if the writer’s a she) the disservice when referring to her works in the future.

I specifically like the war era as its initial setting. It’s not a Taekugi in terms of production design but the scenes are just as heartbreaking when the families are being torn apart. The twists are unpredictable, proving me wrong one after the other. Among the four child actors, I find the young Kang-hee as the most talented. She isn’t as pretty as the young Joon-hee, but when she cries, there’s something in her eyes that seems to beg for a little space in your heart.

I remember one scene where Yang-ja climbed up the window, with the intention to take her daughter away. From the moment she was convincing Kang-hee to leave to the sequence where she saw her daughter saying goodbye to the surrogate father, Song Ok-sook just blew me away. I could hardly breathe when she was running out of the house and her daughter was chasing her in the rain. Is there anything more heartbreaking than a mother abandoning her child?

Young Joon-hee looked so adorable with that set of big round eyes. I love the way she smirked, her pouting lips and the scene where she called her mother the stepmom in Cinderella. LOL! I found myself getting so protective of her that when she woke up inside the trunk, suffocating from the lack of air, I was clutching my blanket hoping someone would finally come and let her out.

Who could ignore the classy Jang Bong-shil? I kinda disliked her in the beginning but her character eventually grew on me. The part when she looked so helpless in front of a rebelling son whose hatred for her seem to be unceasing made me wince a bit. It’s always hard to watch scenes like that. Btw, I know a lot of fans would agree if I say Lee Hye-young seems to be very classy in real life. You just can not fake it.

Do-mi… ahhh. I have so much to say about her unruly eyebrows in the early part of the series. I thought to myself, didn’t they notice her thick eyebrows? I was itching to get a tweezer, no joke. It was very distracting and it also made me think they should have gotten a prettier actress. But as the series progressed, I was delighted to see her face becoming more and more refined. (I think I saw her wedding pic and her eyebrows weren’t this thick! Did the production people do this on purpose?) Of course, I was rooting for her and Dong-young, all the way. I was applauding whenever she’d turn Jang Bin down, because she knew in her heart she could only love one man. I love (wait, I love this scene the most) it when they were on the beach, promising each other that they won’t ever leave Mangkol Island.

Dong-young: I’m not leaving. How about you?

Do-mi : I’m not leaving too.

(hear me *scream*)

If only for this scene, I’d definitely proclaim Fashion 70s as one of the most romantic series I’ve ever watched.

One confession coming up.

The reason I stumbled upon this series was because of Cheon Jeong-myeong. Notice my username, cinderellala. I’ve just finished Cinderella’s Sister weeks ago, and because I was smitten by this young man, I searched for his previous works and Fashion 70s was one of the most recommended. And so without warning, I borrowed the box set and started the marathon. But before I go to the main point, let me analyze Jang Bin first. Clearly he was the third wheel here, and I was a bit dissatisfied at how his role was written. It was bland, like he was put there to fill up a spot. (His character was vital but I’m saying it somehow felt that way when I was watching his parts.) Until the part where his right arm was injured. Oh boy, that really made me pay attention to his character. He portrayed a man in pain, literally and figuratively, to the hilt. I love how CJM managed to draw so much attention with his brand of acting. And who could forget the way he shouted in his mother’s face, and when he was confronting her for abandoning him when he was little. I didn’t like his persistence in pursuing Do-mi, though. But I like the way he chose to keep his bond with Dong-young out of their love entanglement.

Kang-hee. I choose to leave this character second to the last. As I feel so much for her. K-series don’t make me cry that easy. But as the story was coming to its conclusion, I was totally overwhelmed by the decisions she made and the tragedy she chose to accept. I cried bucket of tears in her last moments, when the irony of life was finally rendering its maximum effect. I love how on the surface she seemed to be the antagonist, (she was made to look like one even in her childhood, being exposed to the harshness of life early on, learning the ways of thievery and be corrupt in order to survive.) but as layers of the story began to peel off, it was clear to me that she is the real protagonist in the story. Easily one of the most unforgettable characters of K-dramas in my book.

Dear Joo Jin Mo’s fan,

How are you?

Are you enjoying the beautiful weather? Do you have a minute to look at the beautiful sky? Or, do you have a different weather, hot and humid? I guess some of you do. :)

In the past week, we, active members in the Garden, got quite busy working on a project – it is not big one, but it is significant one. Why?

1. Joo Jin Mo will appear at 3/13/2010 GGIO2 Model Autograph Signing event;

2. A good friend of ours from JJMnet is going to see Jin Mo on 3/13;

3. This friend gave us an offer that none of us can resist, :) – she’d love to help us to deliver our letter/card to Jin Mo’s hands (no kidding!) on 3/13;

4. One of us, a member from Singapore tried her best to find someone who helped us to translate our letter to Korean. This way, Jin Mo can understand what we are saying.

Below is one of our greeting card to Joo Jin Mo, in Korean.  There are 3 other cards.

Each one of Jin Mo’s fan, this is a Must See clip – a beautifully edited clip from Wanee and Junah by Mayi, Mexico. I just couldn’t believe my ears when I opened this link: Moon Represents My Heart/月亮代表我的心

How how, dear Mayi, figured this out?! Just amazing.

Joo Jin Mo, himself said once in an interview – among all the characters in his movies/drama, Junah is the closest one to him. That is somehow his true color.

How lovely to watch this – this beautiful song by Teresa Teng tells exactly how we feel about Joo Jin Mo.

The original description by Mayi at YT was:


http://www.joojinmo.org Joo Jin Mo’s Garden , no dudes en visitarnos si quieres saber todo acerca de Este hermoso actor coreano, es un sitio en Ingles con un Rincon Español, Si !! unete ^.~

Esta pelicula me gusto mucho porque hace un muy buen planteamiento de como las personas a veces nos estancamos en el pasado dejando ir el presente…

Escogí esta canción por que creo que va perfectamente con el Amor que le profesa Junah a Wanee.
