Battle of the Antagonists!

Posted by Joachim Ardiles Jukie

   Hey, guys! It's been a while since I updated my blog entry... I think it is about six months already? My God! How times flew by... Anyway around the time I didn't write anything my blogs, I watched this 2 great dramas on SBS channels that is <My Love From the Stars> and <Three Days>. It has it own interesting story plot, but what really captivates me is the antagonist of both dramas. Let's see who are they and what kind of evil beings they are (well, in the dramas actually)...

LEE JAE KYUNG (acted by Shin Sung-rok)
In the drama <My Love From the Stars>, Lee Jae-kyung own his dad's company, S&C Group. He had an elder brother, Lee Han-kyung (acted by Yun Woo-jin) which supposed to be succeed his dad to run the company, but killed by well, of course Lee Jae-kyung, where he put poison in the juice which Han-kyung drank it, and it caused gradual paralysis as Jae-kyung enter the room to see it. The next day Lee Han-kyung was 'killed in a car accident' which makes Jae-kyung as heir of SC Group. Unknown to him, there was a pen (got a recorder, must be bought on one of Bond movies xD) on Han-kyung's room where he was murdered, and later discovered by his wife, Yang Min-joo (acted by Kim Hae-in), and sent her to mental hospital. No one knows where she is, he told his family that she wants to further her studies in England. He is responsible for Han Yoo-ra's (acted by Yoo In-young) death, initially Cheon Song-yi (acted by Gianna Jun) was framed for murdering Han Yoo-ra, as they were rivals. 
He have a way to tell that he wants to murder a person, telling the person he is about to kill, "Be healthy," or touching his ring before he kills a person, which makes the audience nervous whenever he says the same line or does the same action. His appearance, he had this old pompadour style, using tons of gels, looked like it was licked by a cow, and that dress he used in the drama really gives an impact for the audience.
Among all of his lines, I liked this the most,
 "There are two types of people. There is useful people and those who are useless... The world is full of people who are as expendable as bugs, with only a few who are truly necessary and when a few of those “bugs” get in his way, it’s best to eliminate them."
“That isn’t evil,” Jae-kyung says. “It’s a good deed that benefits more people.”
I took this line for my drama script (for the drama society), it gives an impact to many viewers.

KIM DO-JIN (acted by Choi Woon-young)
Previous drama, The Inheritors, he played as Yoon Chan-young's (played by Kang Min-hyuk) father, but his character in 3 Days really gives an impact compared to his previous drama. He owns a large and dominant electrical company, Jaeshin group which is under a powerful American weapon supplier, Falcone. He had an addiction of Chopin music, he often played a Nocturne by Frederick Chopin Waltz no.10 Opus no.69 no 2 in B minor. 
Compared to Jae-kyung's, he had no fancy hairstyle, or fancy dress, but his charisma really gives the character a strong identity as a very rich and powerful antagonist. Interesting thing about him is that he always lifting his eyebrows, which is kinda reminds me of Kim Woobin in The Inheritors (could be that he learned from him xD)
Without telling too much about him, lets read this info....

So, no matter Jae-kyung or Do-jin, but I learned a lot from them, not for my acting but also to survive in life, there are something we could learned from them to be adapted in our lives (just don't take the bad one though)... So, you choose... LEE JAE-KYUNG or KIM DO-JIN???

Those 17 Days

Posted by Joachim Ardiles Jukie

Those 17 days
They hold hopes high as the mountain
Those 17 days
They kneel pray for their safety...

Though their prayers unfulfilled
But God have greater plans
Though hopes scattered into pieces
But they aren't gone
There are brighter futures
Even without them
As from this grieve
We shall grow stronger
Even without them...

Now we no longer pray for their safety
But, we pray for their souls
May they be in eternal peace and happiness
In the Eternal Land with the Eternal God...

-Dedicated to all 239 passengers and crews onboard the fateful flight MH370. The flight aren't fall into the sea, but into higher sky to be with God...

Here are the masks that I tried throughout the end of year 2013...

*Clay mask that contains zinc and white clay. It claimed that it could heat my skin and purifies my face for 7 days 
*Suitable for oily/combination skin like me.

*For skins that are dirty, oily with acnes, large pores and comedos
*Maintains proper moisture of skin, helps to kill germs resists, inflammation resisting and clean pore.
*Use 2-3 times a week for 15 minutes (I used it for 20 minutes)

My Verdict 
*Has a cooling effect to close my pore :)

Silent Tears

Posted by Joachim Ardiles Jukie

Voice unheard in the mist of silence
Tears dropped unnoticed                                                                    
Nobody hears
Nobody cares.

Nobody comforts me
Nobody wipe my tears
Even angels know not
My heart full of sorrow.   

Let the music share my tears
Even the song of comfort help me not
But bring more tears.

The more I hope a shoulder to cry
Tears getting louder
Pain gets deep
Yet still in silence...

*Taken from the drama My Daughter, Seoyeong.

100th day after death on one spring day...

Posted by Joachim Ardiles Jukie

   Today would be the 100th day since my grandfather's death. I dearly miss him quite a lot since his death. Now, how could words be able to describe my feelings, all I could say that I love him so dearly. Every night thinking about him and how I am regretted not saying the last goodbye to him. And how regrets deepen when he might thought how his grandson (me) not visiting him before inhale the very last breathe in the hospital.
    It was spring at that time. How I was thinking about lovely flowers blooms and a song from 2am <One Spring Day> keep banging on the stereo and my head on and on. That song, the message is about this guy who leaves the place where memories and his loved one stay. So, whenever I heard this song, it reminds how my late grandpa leaves us on that One Spring Day. 
   Now, thinking about it is nothing but sadness and regret that take root in my heart. R.I.P my dear grandpa. Our memories shall be cherished in my heart and all those who loves you.


                                                 OUR LATE GRANDPA:
                                                 BUSU@BESH ANAK (SON OF) DANGEH
                                                 WAS BORN ON:28TH APRIL 1929 
                                                 DEATH ON       :11TH MAY 2013
                                     Forever loved and cherished by wife, sons, daughters-in law,   grandsons, granddaughters, great grandson, relatives and friends.
