10.21.10 [Korean Economy] Expectations are growing that ‘The Fugitive Plan B’s plot line will start to gather momentum

by jax625

KBS 2TV’s drama ‘The Fugitive Plan B’s plot line has started to gather momentum.

In the 7th episode of the drama on October 20th, Kai (Daniel Henney) brought Jinny to ‘Yang Du Hee’ (Old man) as ‘Yang Du Hee’ ordered, but Kai insisted that he would never forsake Jinny (Lee Na Young) in front of ‘Yang Du Hee’.

Kai, who is as cold as a stone, had ‘Ji Woo’ (Rain) pegged as the murder of Jinny’s family members by saying, “Ji Woo is the Megideck”, and then, Kai and Jinny enjoyed dating in a long time.

‘Ji Woo’ who didn’t know such situation, visited Jinny with impatience in order to tell her that Kai was in league with the enemy, but he saw Kai and Jinny kissing. To make matters worse, ‘Ji Woo’ was arrested by Do Soo (Lee Jung Jin)

When ‘Ji Woo’ who never lost his sense of smile in any dangerous situations, was devastated without smiling by the situation where Jinny was in Kai’s arms without receiving Ji Woo’s phone call, its audiences felt sorry for ‘Ji Woo’ to see him in such a situation.

From the 8th episode to be aired on October 21th, the story based on reasonableness will be developed in earnest.

Since the upcoming episodes will be set in Korea, it is expected that subtitles will go down markedly, which will engross the audiences and pull them into the drama.

Do Soo’s (Lee Jung Jin) sense of release is only momentary after arresting ‘Ji Woo’ (Rain). As the investigation progresses, too perfect evidence that has surfaced is thrown discredit on ‘Do Soo’, “It would not be a common murder case.”

Kai (Daniel Henney) tries to make the Josun Bank bill back for sparing Jinny (Lee Na Young) her life, perfectly getting set to team with ‘Yang Du Hee’ (Old man).

The situation becomes so aggravated that ‘Ji Woo’ who has been completely nonchalant must avow that he is the Megideck, as ‘Ji Woo’s attorney suddenly disappears and they have obtained conclusive evidence that ‘Ji Woo’ is the Megideck.

Even if Jinny is sure that ‘Ji Woo’ should be the Megideck after hearing the explanation from Kai, she has niggling doubts about Kai’s identity because of some aspects of the truth ‘Ji Woo’ has showed her.

Officilas from the drama production asked, “You can have an opportunity to enjoy the quintessence of mystery and detective drama through the 8th episode. Please keep watching out for the drama how endangered ‘Ji Woo’ will deal with trouble.”

In the preview of the 8th episode, when Jinny is seen to be in tears, visiting ‘Ji Woo’ who has been prisoned, its audiences have expressed that they are filled with anticipation about the episode, commenting on it, “I hope her to believe ‘Ji Woo’ at the very least.” “I was moved to her tears at the scene”

The production expressed, “Japanese fans have visited Korea to see Rain shooting the drama. Modu Tour, a tour agency, has arranged a tour package to give his fans a good chance for them to see Rain through the set. The tour agency has received more applications than expected, so each itinerary has been made out and these visitors have opened the tour package.”

According to the production, one woman fan from Osaka was quoted as saying. “It was very nice to see Rain’s realistic actions. I was worried Rain would be wounded because there were a lot of scenes of fierce fighting during the shooting.”

Actually, Rain fell out of the roof of a car during a confrontation he had with his opponent martial arts actor. Then, staffs with the main martial arts director, ‘Park Joo Chun’, immediately ran towards him and looked at his condition and found that he sustained only a minor injury, so they were able to reopen the shooting.

But, that elicited exclamations from the audience while groans ‘Ah’ were heard everywhere.

With the appearance that is worthy of the name ‘World Star’, Rain turned remained time to politely greet his Japanese fans who showed interest in his every movement.

10.11.10 [KBS]Two Stars Kiss in ‘The Fugitive: Plan B’

by jax625

Interest in the new KBS2 series “The Fugitive: Plan B” is increasing after a kissing scene of two stars in the fourth episode.

In the October 7 episode, Gee-woo (Rain), a private investigator, reunites with Ji-ni (Lee Na-young) — who hired him to investigate who is behind the murder of her parents — at an airport to leave Japan after the two escaped the danger of being caught by some mysterious agents.

The two are talking about how they address each other when Gee-woo suddenly embraces Ji-ni. Embarrassed, Ji-ni makes resistant gestures, and Gee-woo tells her that somebody is looking for them.

Gee-woo sees Do-soo (Lee Jung-jin), a police investigator, and his men looking for him. But Gee-woo tells Ji-ni jokingly that he felt as if someone was watching them but he must have been wrong. When Ji-ni responds that she won’t tolerate his joking if he does it again, Gee-woo kisses her, smiling.

The drama board was filled with messages about the kissing. Some viewers say they were surprised and at the same time excited, while others express further expectations for the romance between the two.

Meanwhile, Lee Na-young successfully performed tough action scenes, shaking off her usual feminine and mysterious image.

10.04.10 [Dramabeans] Runaway (Plan B): Episodes 1&2 Re-Cap

by jax625

**please note, this post contains spoilers, so enter @ your own risk ^o^


Runaway: Plan B premiered this past week to huge intro ratings, setting KBS up for yet another hit this year. (You may know the title as Fugitive: Plan B but don’t worry if you’re confused, since not even the drama’s official site is keeping things consistent.)

What we get here is a stylish action drama that is — let’s face it — pretty fluffy entertainment but executed well and with a cheeky attitude. It knows exactly what it is, and plays that to the hilt. The casting is spot-on and the action sequences are designed to achieve maximum cool effect.

Did I like it? Very much in parts, and not much at all in other parts. It’s complicated. We’ll get to that.
