For some reason today I started to think about rookie cyber crime unit detective Lee Tae Kyun. It has been awhile since I watched 유령 [Ghost] and I may be ready for a re-watch. In the meantime, a little Lee Tae Kyun love for today’s G.O One Shot. I have been breaking my one shot rules quite a bit lately so today I continue the tradition with some LTK .gif spam. He’s too cute!
Do you ever long to see Lee Tae Kyun again? I have not had him on my mind for awhile but today, a G.O One Shot .gif day, I am in the mood for a little shot of the quiet but ever-dedicated detective from the Cyber Crime Unit in the Korean drama 유령[Ghost/Phantom].
Imagine your bias gets his first solid, non-cameo role in a hyped-up drama with a pretty impressive cast. Then, imagine the network airing the drama decides to hold an event where your bias, along with two of his co-stars show up to promote that drama the same day it is set to premier. This is exactly what happened on 30 May 2012 when SBS brought G.O, Im Ji Kyun and Song Ha Yoon together to have a watch event with fans for the premier of the Korean drama 유령 [Ghost].
By the second to last episode of the Korean drama 유령[Ghost/Phantom], the Cyber Crime Unit of detectives led by Kim Woo Hyun (So Ji Sub) were starting to gel at last as a team. When brusque and salty Detective Kwan Hyuk Joo (Kwak Do Won) gathers the team for an afternoon picnic, it could easily have been considered a team building retreat of sorts. The underlying reason for the getaway, however, was far more serious and instead of butting heads (as they had been doing for 18 episodes), they finally came together to begin to truly unravel the mysteries and conspiracies of the rash of murders the show revolved around.
I truly enjoyed the whole of 유령 [Ghost], but admit that the draw for me was seeing G.O in the drama. Even though he did not have a whole bunch of screen time, he made the best of the scenes he did grace, notably so in the drunk dinner scene of Episode 16.
Sometimes I wonder what more we would have learned about Lee Tae Kyun had G.O not been on tour with MBLAQ during the filming of the drama 유령 [Ghost] and the writers had more license to build his character. It is only speculation on my part, but if the Blaq% Asia Tour did not conflict with filming, we may have possibly received more back story on the Cyber Crime Unit’s resident computer programmer whiz Tae Kyun as well as been flooded with more episode screen time for blossoming actor, G.O. I won’t be greedy, however, for when your bias is a musician first and foremost, any screen time in a drama is good screen time.
An award? For moi?!! I am duly humbled and deliciously delighted that my dearest, sweetest (and inspiring) friend, Kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict felt that I brought a little sunshine to her life and, as a result, nominated me for a Sunshine Award. And, if that wasn’t enough, my little baby MBLAQ sister, Nelly of MyMyooz also nominated me. Really, though, if ever there were rays of sunshine both here in the blogosphere and simply in general, these two darling ladies are all that and more! Kfangurl and I go way back…way, way back and I am one lucky blogger to have her in my corner as both mentor and friend. Nelly and I bonded and I mean BONDED over our mutual love, respect, and ardent adoration of MBLAQ’s main lead vocal, G.O, and this is a bond that will never be broken even in light of the latest news of alleged departure of two of the five members of the group. But…please, let’s not go there right now, because I just can’t….
So let me first say thank you to both Kfangurl and Nelly for the nom – I love both of you, lots!! Like this:
And now, what’s the deal with this award?
Reason 5 – Everybody on the Left
I happen to think left-handed people are otherworldly. There is something unique and mysterious about them and so it comes as no surprise to me that MBLAQ’s resident mischief-maker is left-handed. Call me crazy (and you probably already do), but I find that characteristic oddly attractive and rank it as one of the reasons to love the adorably sweet and delightfully left-handed Byung Hee.
