Korean Wave: Jang Geun Suk (Korean Actor) + Syamsul Yusof (Malaysian Actor) = Jang Geun Sul??

It's been a while since I write anything in this blog. Well, for a start, let me begin with a greeting; "How do you do?". I'm sorry if it takes a while for me to write again but I been quite busy lately. But don't worry, even though I'm a bit occupied;  I already find something that I'm interested in and I would like to share it with you in here. I hope you'll enjoy reading post as much as I like writing it.

Let's start with the basic thing first...  As you know, I'm currently attending Johore Matriculation College. It has been four months as the time this post is written, but I'm already used to the routine. It's the same thing everyday: lecture, tutorials, classes, night class, lecture again. You know, the same ol' drill... However, there seems to be a new addition in my grey and dull life. And it all thanks to my roommate who had successfully renew my old addiction. Korean Drama!.

The first time I been exposed to Korean Drama was when I was 10 or 12 years old. I bet half of the readers (if you come from Malaysia) must've remember these two infamous Korean Drama; 'Winter Sonata' (2001) & 'Autumn in My Heart' (2002) when it first aired, right? Huhu, I bet those titles brings back a lot of memories, doesn't? Anyway, I was very young when those two drama's aired to be able to understand what it was about. Then, fast forward two or three years later, come along 'Full House' (2004), 'The Princess Hours' (2006) and 'The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince' (2007). This time I'm a bit older and therefore I'm able to enjoy watching Korean drama. I even remember bonding with a few of good friend in middle school because of it! ;) Those are the good times...

However, just like any other hobbies, my interest quickly fades away (I blame it on bad aerial at my house). Another three years passed without me watching any drama's until I start to attend college. But then, comes along my roommate... She brought a laptop (pretty illegal tbh) and that's when I first saw her watching Korean drama's and boy, I immediately get hooked. I don't think I ever feel this excited for a long time. So, thanks to my roommate; I unexpectedly found a new drama with a brand new actor I like and the title is 'You're Beautiful' ( you can see the poster below).

Together (except for Minami manager), they form a boy-band called A.N.JELL.
For those who don't know, 'You're Beautiful' was a South Korean Drama aired which had been around October/November 2009. So, what make this drama so good you ask? Well, the story for once immediately catch my interest. You're Beautiful tells a story about a trainee nun who are forced to take over her twin brother place (bcoz of plastic surgery gone wrong) in a popular boy-band called A.N.Jell. Lucky for her she can sing and looks like her brother, but trying to lie and hide her real identity from her band-mates is what make me fell in love with this series. I think every actor in this drama works really together. One of the actor in particular (the guy in the green shirt) is incredibly CUTEEE!! His name is Jang Geun Suk and as this post is written, he's 23 years old (only five years older than me). So far the only South Korean actor I only know is Bae Yoong-jun, Hyun Bin, and Rain (kinda sad, really). Anyway, the first moment I laid my eyes on him, he kinda reminded me of someone. I try to think who he looks like and after a while thinking and tossing and turning around - I finally found my answer....

He looks kinda similar to our own Malaysian actor, Syamsul Yusoof  (director Yusoof Haslam son's). Like wha...aat now??? Oh, you don't believe me? Please look below and tell me if I'm wrong....

Can you see the resemblance?
Could they possibly be separated by birth??

Same, right? See what did I told you? My eyes don't lie, okay? This actor is my new love interest right now... Any changes will be informed later... Haha...

Thank you for reading this entry. Goodbye for now.
