    Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    @Karen they did not win the popularity awards BUT THEY ARE NOMINATED IN THAT CATEGORY IN MBC DRAMA AWARDS 2013. Can’t you see the PICTURE?!

    What’s with quality compare to popularity? That’s a conflict dear! Popularity is about being popular, being most talk-about and being overrated. Han Ji Hye is much popular than other nominees in Baeksang Popularity section as well as Kim Jae Won.

    I am not surprise that they did not get any nominations for the performance section, but at least grabbing nominations for popularity section is a equalizer since this drama is way popular and has high ratings.

    And for emphases, I AM TALKING for POPULARITY, NOT for PERFORMANCE. Adios!

  2. 1252
    Gretz16 Says:

    @ Karen , and @ Kurayuzaki666 ,…. cool down guys . . 🙂 . We don’t know how they choose and who nominated the nominees, so, there’s no point to argue about it. I also saw the list of nominees and i agree to Kurayuzaki666 that some of them are actually less popular if we compare to Kim Jae Won. And i also notice that only few artist are from MBC … mostly, are from KBS2 and SBS. I also read a news that on voting for popularity award, you need to register and pay before you can vote. So, the awarding is actually partly a kind of business. It’s not just simply awarding who is the best or popular. I used to think that Baeksang Award is the best in term of credibility, but i guess i was wrong. Anyway, there’s quite a lot on the list that is really popular, hopefully the one who deserve it win the award. 🙂

    Kurayuzaki666 Says:

    @Gretz16 actually there are reports that Baeksang has lost its credibility last 2 years ago esp. last year for giving the Best Actor award for Kim Soo Hyun over Shin Ha Kyun (Brain), Park Shi Hoo (Princess Man), Han Sak Yung (Deep Rooted Tree) and Cha Seung Won (The Greatest Love). In own point of view, out of these 5 great actors Soo Hyun is the youngest but at the same time the weakest. so many had questioned th outcome. Some points it because of the high ratings. PERHAPS! But as far as I know, Baeksang mainly looks for quality not for quantity.

    Baeksang is now on its Political strike I think. I was just disappointed that stars from this drama are snub and excluded. They deserve even a single nomination.

    @Karen Peace. I am not angry. Im just stressing/showing a clearer picture.

  4. 1254
    Karen Says:

    @Kurayuzaki666, i’m quite disappointed too. I don’t mean to argue. Maybe we just have different view and understanding on how Baeksang Arts Award choose their nominees. I’m not really sure how they categorize it.

    May Queen recieved major awards from KCEA (Korea Cultural Entertainment Award) and MBC Drama Award in 2012. I’m quite surprised that not even a single nonminee is included on Baeksang Award.

    Hey..guys… good news for all Kim Jae Won fans and lovers..
    Check out the latest news about Kim Jae Won 김재원 new drama “I Hear Your Voice” alongside with Lee Bo Young … at http://koalasplayground.com/2013/04/19/sbs-swaps-out-can-we-love-for-i-hear-your-voice-with-kim-jae-won-and-lee-bo-young/

    May Says:

    Good news for all Jaewon fans… it seems like your going to see you oppa on screen again… here’s a news update surely you gonna love.. 🙂

    Actor Kim Jae-won and actress Lee Bo-yeong might appear as a couple in a drama.

    Kim and Lee have been offered roles in the upcoming SBS drama “I Hear Your Voice” but haven’t decided on anything yet. If Kim Jae-won agrees to star in this drama, it will be his first come back to SBS in 9 years since the 2004 drama, “My 19 Year Old Sister in Law”.

    Kim Jae-won’s agency claims, “‘I Hear Your Voice’ is one of the many offers he got. He’s looking through them and will decide what he wants to do in due time”.

    Lee Bo-yeong’s agency claims, “She was going to take a break after “My Daughter Seo-yeong” but the synopsis was so good she’s thinking about it”.

    Meanwhile, “I Hear Your Voice” is written by Park Hye-ryeon from “Get Karl! Oh Soo-jeong” and “Dream High” and is about a public defender who fights for the 1% of innocence.

    Karen Says:

    Not really good because i read on the recent news that Kim Jae Won rejected the role on I Hear Your Voice. I think he is considering other drama offers. He can afford to be picky because he is quite in demand this days and he is receiving quite a lot of offers. I think his schedule is very tight because he is always in and out of Korea for other activities in Japan and China.

    Rose Says:

    Looks like our May Queen cast will turn into rivals on weekend ratings soon. I just read this news:

    According to MBC Officials Kim Jae Won is being considered to cast as main lead on upcoming MBC drama “SCANDAL”, the successor drama of 100 Years Of Inheritance, which is currently aired during weekends. Casting is in progress and nothing is confirmed yet. The drama will start after 100 Years Of Inheritance ends.
    Check out more details at http://m.media.daum.net/entertain/enews/view?newsid=20130429145806069

    What do you think guys? Kim Jae Won decline the offer from SBS “I Hear Your Voice” , do you think he would accept this offer considering that he had quite close ties on MBC?

  11. 1261
    Analie Says:

    I read rumors from other sites that MBC offered two option for Kim Jae Won ,
    first option is upcoming drama “Medical Top Team” which will follow after When a Man Fall In Love end. Then second option is upcoming drama “Scandal” after 100 Years of Inheritance.

    I guess that’s the reason why he decline SBS offer to lead in I Hear Your Voice. He haven’t give his decision yet. But i have a feeling that he will announve it during his special fans meeting on May 18, organize by a Japanese company for his fans.

    I heard , KJW new drama “SCANDAL” is on the same time slot of May Queen before. It starts airing on first of July and it’s 36 episodes drama. 🙂 I’m so excited.

    Sandy Says:

    I’m sorry, but this drama is just so so. It doesn’t take long to realize that the good guys will never, and I mean never win in this drama until the last episode. Also, there is just way too much drama. There was absolutely NO chemistry between the lead actors. I wasn’t convinced that she was in love with Kang. At times there was a lot of over acting. I kept waiting for the bad guys to get some pay back, they never really did. After episode 24, I just lost interest.

  16. 1266
    Alfe Says:

    @Sandy, you are actually lucky that you could skip some episodes that you don’t like. I watch it on live streaming before and Hae Joo character really drive me nuts, to add up, HJH acting is so bad. Even if it ended happily, i was never convince that she was in love with Kang San, it seems like she only stick to him because he is the only one who could make her dream in reality, and the fact that San was deeply and unconditionally in love with her. I feel bad for San because he had endure so much pain on the entire series. Sigh…

    @Kurayuzaki666 , When i read KJW message and announcement for us on his Official Fans Cafe, i was so shock, then i honestly feel sad at first and can’t hold my tears back. But somehow, after some thoughts and imagining about his baby., i feel better now and i really wish he is happy. 🙂

    Nudge Says:

    This drama was a string of plot devise after plot devise, which became tedious, and frankly, offensive.

    I understand that viewers watched because among the cast were their favourite actor/actress, and I have nothing against that. But charismatic and gorgeous talented actors aside, what’s left is a horrible succession of scenes that I can only describe as an orgy for sadists. I barely survived it.

  23. 1273
    Joy Says:

    @Nudge , honestly speaking I was a big fan of Kim Jae Won and i wanted everyone to watch all his works. On this series most of the cast are good on portraying their characters but the story can push you to the edge that you might even wish to fly to Korea right away and struggle the writer .. 🙂 It’s a relief that it ends happily but i still can’t forgive him for giving me so much torture along the way. Sigh.. I’m glad you survive it. The only thing that motivates me watching this ’til the end aside from being a fan of KJW is the hope that the good people will get what they have to and live happily.

    This drama started out good, but then it went no where. It was the same in every single episode, evil guys always won. It also turned ridiculous in the storyline– I’m not sure what the writers were thinking. Also, some of the acting was over the top–in a bad way. I was just ready for this drama to end. There was absolutely NO chemistry between the leads. I was disappointed over all.

    I WANT TO WATCH THIS DRAMA!!! ^^ I’ve watched some clips of it on YT and I loved the Hae joo-Kang san couple. <3 Hae joo somehow reminds me of Go eun sung from Shining inheritance. Kim jae won is sooo handsome and I'm also reminded of Joo ji hoon whenever he smiles. They both have the kind of smile that can make a girl's heart melt. ^^ The young counterparts also did a great job. I now understand why this drama gained high ratings and even had an extension due to its popularity. It really is a drama worth-watching. ^^
