A Gentleman's Dignity

There is only one Korean actor that I DON’T want to see in person, and that’s my ultimate fave – Jang Dong Gun! He may not be the top Hallyu star nowadays but he is still an A-lister in Korea’s entertainment industry.
Why do I love JDG? It’s because he was in the first Korean drama I followed – All About Eve. I easily fell in love with him and Chae Rim! Of course, All About Eve remains as one of my favorite all-time Korean drama that I still watch from to time. Whew!
It has been 12 years since JDG did All About Eve. It has also been 12 years since the first time I became a Korean entertainment fan. This year, JDG is back on television with a weekend drama called “A Gentleman’s Dignity” after years of concentrating on doing movies.

Jang Dong Gun in A Gentleman’s Dignity

I haven’t seen a bit of “A Gentleman’s Dignity”. I have a policy of not watching a drama until it’s over. Hehehe… But I keep seeing their poster, especially at Chae Sun Dang – the Korean shabu-shabu chain restaurant that I love ;p I’ve also been browsing pictures of the drama from their official site on SBS.
The drama is doing quite well on the ratings game, placing second to consistent first placer “Gag Concert”. Three OSTs have already been released as well. I have yet to get a copy. Of course, I’d love to get souvenirs of the drama too.


  1. Hi! I love this drama, too.
    My name is Ivy. Actually I am looking for a filipina mom who can be my friend. I am 30’s korean and live in seoul with my hus and my 15-month babygirl.
    I want to meet you around Sa-dang station in Seoul and talk about anything – this drama, in-laws :), babies, and so on.
    We can exchange lanuages-korean and english and share some worries .
    A mom who have a baby as old as mine is better for us cause 2 babies can play together. please email me.

    1. Hi Ivy! Too bad I live far and my son is a pre-schooler, but I’m sure there are other moms out there who may be interested ;p

      1. Thanks, i am looking forward to it.
        By the way, aside from this board, where can I write my message to find my filipina friend in this site?
