[Article] 'Fondant Garden' Gained Positive Comments

Much thanks to RoyalPJM for another article shared on their blog which you can visit HERE is you want updated news about Jung Min.

Honestly, when I was watching the romantic comedy drama last Friday, of course I was disappointed when I heard Jung Min's dubbed Chinese voice. Much as I really wanted it to be I want to hear Jung Min speak in the drama Chinese regardless how he delivers his Chinese lines. Put the director opted to dubbed his voice for a better understanding of the Chinese viewers. In fairness to the dubber though and to the voice editor, I find it that the dubbing was not really that bad. But as a Jung Min fan you would easily know that it's not him.

Anyway, as I have been telling earlier, I just hope that if ever they will release a DVD version of this drama, they will consider using Jung Min's real voice in the scenes where he speaks Chinese.

Btw, by any chance, has anyone know what the 1st episode rating is?

Both Park Jung Min and Kingone are the lead male in the drama, netizens are protecting their own biases, think that Kingone is handsome, Park is cute, the pairing with Jian Man Shu is refreshing. She acted as a skilled baker, a scene in the drama was her having Ginseng Chicken Soup, netizens says " This drama is too oppressive, is a drama that makes people hungry while watching" Her expressions was being described as "Naturally Foolish".

The "Behind The Scenes" are causing the netizens to fall over from laughter, Park Jung Min is hilarious, because he often forgets his lines causing NG, he admitted through the camera that he is "Spoiled" (meaning his head is spoilt), he even played "1 second becomes single eyelid", when rehearsing for the drama, he accidentally says that Jian Man Shu is his "Boy"friend, Kingone teases him and says: "So are you her boyfriend, or are you her girlfriend?"

In the drama he acted as someone who dose not want to take over the family business thus having lots of conflicts with his father, in real life he revealed, initially his family was against him entering the Entertainment Industry, because his father was a rather conservative person, hopes that he will be a normal office worker, however he insist and did not give up, had conflicts with his family, but because he is the youngest in the family, he just have to act coquettishly to his father and everything will be alright.

the highest weekday drama ranks at 4 and the highest weekend drama ranks at 2.5
if it really is .6 for the first episode its believable... i hope itll go up to like 3 or 4 at least ... jungminnie is hoping for an 18 percent tho lol
maybe we can find a way to make the ratings on viki go really high ... ?
