The long awaited Xiah Tod enslaved my heart with his ethereal singing voice and figure.
Xiah Tod – noble, cruel, sweet and appealing to me, if I might venture an opinion.
Rather than my opinion, following episode tells you more. My daughter, who had been unfamiliar with musical actor Kim Junsu, was so excited and burst into tears saying “Who is this man? Too cool!!!” as soon as the curtain fell. With tears in my eyes, too, I was quite happy and proud of Xiah’s singing voice which grabbed and moved people’s heart.
My daughter and I couldn’t forget Xiah Tod’s singing voice and couldn’t sleep well that night. We had an exciting talk about him hoping to come and see his performance again. I never imagined I would have this kind of experience together with my daughter.
“His performance should be permanently preserved!” was my daughter’s remark in praise of the superb Xiah Tod.

On March 31, Park Yoo Chun held a fan meeting to meet his fans and promote his current drama, “Rooftop Prince.” This fan meeting was held in Korea, but was open exclusively to Park Yoo Chun’s Japanese fans. Through this event, 500 lucky Japanese fans had a chance to participate in a fan meeting and check out “Rooftop Prince”s filming set. The tickets sold out almost immediate after the pool was open, proving Park Yoo Chun’s popularity in Japan.
Excited Japanese fans prepared placards not only for Park Yoo Chun and his previous dramas, but also for “Rooftop Prince,” which has not yet aired officially in Japan. A Japanese fan commented, “Many K-drama and Park Yoo Chun fans are very excited for ‘Rooftop Prince.’ We watch it almost in real-time via internet.”
An official from this event commented, “Both of Park Yoo Chun’s previous dramas, ‘Sund Gyun Kwan Scandal’ and ‘Miss Ripley’ are widely popular in Japan. As a result, he has become one of the leading Hallyu actors. Many online fan communities were formed in Japan instantly after Park Yoochun’s casting news was released.”
During two hours of fan meeting, Park Yoochun updated his fans about “Rooftop Prince” and his recent activities. He also participated in many mini-games and made Onigiri (also known as Triagular Kimbab in Korea) with the fans. He thanked his fans for visiting, “Although ‘Rooftop Prince’ only recently started airing, I’ve gotten so much love and support already. Thank you all for your support and visiting me. Please keep cheering for ‘Rooftop Prince.'”
New shows reflect a shift in the relationship with authoritative figures.
In the SBS drama “Rooftop Prince” (2012), the crown prince of the Joseon Dynasty suddenly appears in the middle of contemporary Seoul, jumping in time over 300 years. Starving on the streets without money, he observes people eating steaming cups noodles at a nearby convenience store.
The prince looks at the customers with pleading eyes, but when they walk past unmoved, he bellows at the store employees, “Get ready to serve those noodles to me right now!”
They stare coldly at the unruly man donning anachronistic hanbok and call the police, who handcuff him and drive him away.
The Joseon Dynasty crown prince depicted in SBS’s latest drama is a perfect exemplification of the tectonic shift in Korean dramas’ relationship with authoritative figures. Read More →
