Gong Yoo’s Return in One Fine Day!

I’m busy at work today but not so busy that I haven’t been sneaking around answering comments here and there!

I wanted to say a quick thanks for all the warm wishes back! I appreciate it! I sincerely missed blogging for the days I was away and to come back to so many great comments it’s always an absolute pleasure!

For an afternoon break I thought I’d mention the fact that Gong Yoo’s newest drama, One Fine Day, is available for purchase on DVD!

It came out on May 27th but I’ve been so busy running around that I didn’t get a chance to pre-order it! I just ordered it so expect a review shortly. The price is listed as $99 USD on YesAsia but a few online shops have it marked at a much more reasonable price so if you’re lemming it do check around for the best deal!

It’s nice to see Gong Yoo in action as I had heard he was giving acting a break and joining the army. I thought it’d be a good, long while before seeing him in a new drama!

Anyone see it yet?

Love it?

Want to see it?

Love Gong Yoo?

Tell the Muse!

You seriously didn’t think I’d close the post without a little eye candy did you?



About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    i haven’t seen it, but one fine day isn’t gong yoo’s newest drama. he was actually in a drama called coffee prince after one fine day. coffee prince was all the rage in korea but i thought it was only ok. and he left for the army like last month i believe so he’s gone for two years.

    what a surprise! i’m a relatively new visitor to your site, and i had no idea you were a fan of korean dramas. this particular drama actually aired in 2006 (wasn’t on my radar, unfortunately). as far as i know, gong yoo is currently in boot camp (as you may know, military service is compulsory for male citizens in korea, but it only lasts 2 years – meaning, he’ll be back by 2010). i think “coffee prince” was his last drama.

    in any case, as a fellow korean drama fan, here are some recommendations (although, you may have already watched a few of these):

    hong gil dong
    come back, soon-ae
    princess hours
    my lovely samsoon
    money war
    delicious proposal

    i’m not sure if they’re all available to watch here (although, they were subtitled when they were broadcast on the korean stations here in the u.s.)… anyway, hope you find them and enjoy!

    Hiya Muse~* I am so happy to see you back in control again~~ I came to see your blog everyday but I’ve noticed you have been away. Hope you had a awesome break!!!
    SInce you put Gong Yoo’s sexy picture, I had to
    jump in and leave you a comment.
    My flatmate actually has seen him in the club in SEOUL! She said he is not as tall as he appears to be in the TV and has quite dark skin. But it doesn’t matter what he really looks like, I was so envious of my flatmate!!!!!!
    SO this summer my ambition is to go to all these exclusive clubs and try to meet some male celebs kk Who knows?I might be lucky to bump into Gong Yoo when he’s on his break?? kk
    I can’t wait to go back to Korea and try some of Muse’s approved Etude house peach collection ^-^
    Take Care *Hug*

    hi there anna!

    You are correct! 🙂 I was sitting here thinking wow what the hell is gong yoo doing in a new drama. Appears that this is being released for the 1st time in Eng Subs.

    I seen coffee prince and adored it!

    Why didn’t you like it? =-) It was awful cute hehe!

    Thanks for the comment! Hope to hear from you again soon!

    hello there jkim!

    Thanks for visiting me here 🙂 I love catching up with all my readers! I ADORE korean dramas 🙂

    I read that he was joining the army and than suddenly this new drama pops up…I was like what…I was compulsive and brought it immediately as he’s lovely to say the least. A reader than mentioned it was older and I looked it up and it appears that this is the first release with eng subs…so def NOT new 🙁 la sigh!

    I adore coffee prince by the way.

    Thanks! I’ve seen princess hours and my lovely samsoon but the rest I haven’t yet seen so this is a treat 🙂 I love hearing recs on good kdramas as sometimes, as you know being a kdrama lover, you have to weed through alot of bad to get to the good dramas 🙂

    I don’t get the korean station as I believe it’s available on dish and I’m a direct tv girl 🙁 sniff sniff.

    Thanks for the recs! Greatly appreciate it 🙂

    Fab talking to you! Hope to speak to you again really soon!

  • the Muse

    hiya humming!

    Aw thanks! It’s good to be back!

    It was a lovely time away 🙂

    AHHHHH you are kiddin’?! I’d jump him if I seen him in public lol!

    Little disappointed about him being darker but I did suspect as much from Coffee Prince as a few time he was outside he skin seems very tanned and not as milky white as promo images make him out to be!

    Hells I wouldn’t mind either if I seen him up close and personal I’d be drooling!

    LOL Can I come please????

    Oh honey you must try some of the Etude House! It’s fab 😉

    Love ya!

  • Jnie

    Gong Yoo….*drool*
    have you seen him in : Biscuit Teacher and Coffee Prince?
    Oh my.. the eye candy.

  • Jnie

    Ooooh…Gong Yoo…Hmmmm…
    Have you seen Coffee Prince or Biscuit Teacher?
    Oh my…look at the eye candy..thank you *wink*

  • the Muse

    you’re just jealous b/c I fancy him Mandy 😛

    If you’d get your breasts out sooner than later maybe we’d have some other eye candy to stare at..but until that day the blogging world has to deal with my posts on hot korean actors!

    ;P Nanner Nanner!

  • the Muse

    ‘ello jnie! How are you!?

    I’m with you on the drool! Yummie man candy 😉

    I seen Coffee Prince and postively adored it. Haven’t seen Biscuit Teacher though 😉 You’re about the 8th person that rec’ed it. Good stuff????

    I may have to buy it!

    Just visited your site and just like most adorable Gong Yoo fans, you are a breath of fresh air. It’s so cute how many of us really adore him…please check out for you to have access on some of the latest news specifically Yoo’s whereabouts. The Yoo Girls (as how they are called–official fan club, i guess?) always gets me through the whole stressful week I have in the plant. (Info: I am the only girl I know who works in a Power Plant). Thanks again and hope we all have to save up, meet and go clubbing in Korea!
