Tree with Deep Roots (korean drama)

Based on Lee Jeong-myeong's novel “Deep-rooted Tree”. Work that highlights the serial killings during the 7 days before the announcement of the Korean script.
A series of murder occurred during the reign of King Sejong. As Kang Chae Yoon who is investigating these cases gets closer to the root of the truth, he finds himself embroiled in a massive conspiracy behind the serial killings which involves a group of genius who are willing to risked their lives towards their cause/goals and secret powers who will interfere with the course of his investigations.
My heart is bleeding after watching this. The aftereffect is really bad this time. sighhh In short, this series was awesome. It was intense so much and I was always anticipating the next scene. It was so sad as well, the king was especially awesome. In fact, all the cast were awesome. Young chae yoon really left an impression on me. He portrayed his role fabulously. I'm not going to babble much after this, so I'm just going to recommend this series and hope that you'll enjoy it. Here's a bit of sneak peek for you. well that or you can consider it a spoiler hehehe enjoy!!!

Jeon woochi (korean movie)

500 years ago in the Joseon Dynasty. The Pipe of the prophecy has fallen into the evil hands of the goblins, propelling the world into a whirlwind of disorder. The ancient Taoist wizards turn to the greatest ascetics of their time, the Master (Baek Yoon-sik) and Hwadam (Kim Yoon-seok) for help in vanquishing the goblins and trust each wizard with one half of the Pipe. Meanwhile, the Master’s rascal student Jeon Woochi (Kang Dong-won) tricks the king with the art of transformation and creates a fiasco, which makes the three Taoist wizards and Hwadam visit the Master. But they find the Master murdered and his half of the Pipe missing. Woochi is framed for the murder, and as punishment he and his trusty dog Chorangyi (Yoo Hae-jin) are imprisoned inside a scroll by the wizards.
Seoul, 2009. For some strange reason, goblins that had been sealed up in the past begin to appear one by one, wreaking havoc on the city. The three Taoist wizards had been enjoying their years of retirement as a priest, a monk, and a shaman, while Hwadam has long disappeared in order to polish his Taoist art. After much discussion, the three wizards unseal the scroll and call forth Jeon Woochi and Chorangyi. Being offered freedom in return for catching the goblins, Woochi sets out on his task. But what began as a hunt for goblins slowly turns into Woochi's personal sightseeing expedition of the modern-day world. And to top it off, he meets a woman with the same face as the one that had captivated him so many centuries ago (Im Soo-jung). Together with Seo In-kyung (his new, yet old love), Woochi begins his adventure.
well as you can see, this is more if a fantasy action, fusion mixed historical drama. no idea what to call it hehe what i really enjoyed most about this movie was the special effects. when woochi used his powers, it didn't look fake at all, it was so powerful it left me whoaaaa. also it was hilarious as hell. especially when i saw the true faces of the goblins. pfft... you'll know when you watch it hehe enjoy this.

Duelist (korean movie)

Based on a novel, this beautiful period film centers on a tomboyish detective by the name of Nam Sun (Ha Ji Won, from Love So Divine and Phone) who ends up being assigned to investigate a case revolving around some counterfeit coins. Going deep undercover in a variety of diverse disguises, Nam Sun quickly finds herself chasing after a notorious assassin named Sad Eyes (Kang Dong Won, from Too Beautiful to Lie and Romance of Their Own), who just may be involved in the crime she's investigating.
starring kang dong won and ha ji won, these two had such sizzling chemistry in this movie, just great teamwork, and they managed to pull of the fight scenes fabulously. their fight was literally a tango and i'm sure you'll agree with me when you watch this.
all in all, this is quite a good movie though you might be a little confused at first, but one thing you'll get is they'll be on opposite sides although both will feel that pull towards each other.
