Happy Friday everyone! :D
The only thing I've been watching recently is School 2013 (may or may not be 2 episodes behind) which I think is freaking awesome so far. Curse college taking up all my time.
Me too. (Would watch Ozosaki no Himawari, but neither ep 6 or nor 7 have been uploaded and subbed though they have been shown in Japan already.)
Oh, but School 2013 is so fab. So angsty. And it's tearing me apart. That Go Nam Soo, I keep watching him and thinking someone give that boy a hug and some love!
And we've gone even deeper now that we have been revealed a first glimpse of his ugly, ugly past. His thrashing another person is absolutely not defendable, but I do wonder now, how did he get to that point? What was before that gang-past, what made him join that gang? I feel like the gang must have been some sort of family-substitute for him, that it gave him attention and love of sorts (in a twisted way), which he was missing elsewhere.
From all we know, he may well be essentia [Read more]
Yaye...I have never managed to crack the top ten!! Happy OT everyone...been following I Miss You and King of Dramas thru recaps and I love them both for different reasons.....
For I Miss You, I think that there is a sick twisted part of me that likes this drama cuz no one should ever have to suffer that much and go thru that much shit... All of these characters need a loooooot of therapy. Yoo Seungo Ho's character makes me wanna punch him...d shit he has done to that poor girl has probably made her worse for wear..she would have been much better off if he had not been a selfish lonely bastard - though I understand his character...not his actions.
KoD is flat out funny and a true reveal of the industry in my opinion.... I think that this drama is doing all things right....good actors [Read more]
Happy Friday OMG!
Good luck with finals!
I love reading IMY recaps also. heheh
Such a sad, sad story for sure. I do hope it end with a happy ending though. This story really need it.
Happy Friday, OMG! Those are the two dramas I'm following also (and can I say that KoD just stepped it up again this past week.) But I'm also loving Can We Get Married. Other than those, real life is too busy this time of year.
One more week for you. Yeah! Keep up the good work and just keep your eyes on the goal (of having time for Kdrama watching!!!)
good evening everyone! looking forward to IMY and YSH's character... real intriguing cos you wanna punch him (sorry I've been in AATM's world, but just recently got out so i'm barely recovered and still wasn't in this new loop).. gotta stack tissues before i start reading recaps and watch the drama... i know it's halfway through so i'll just keep myself busy watching crack dramas first (aka You're Beautiful hehe) before plunging head straight into this angsty drama
yea i knew i was not gonna be able to watch IMY so i scrambled all over the interweb for recaps and i found one....so glad m not watching it...i feel like i would want to fly to korea, find YSH, slap him upside the head while telling him how sorry i am but his character is kinda horrible, kiss him, then run away!!!! HAHAHA!
sounds like a good plan!
can i come?! i'd like to slap him too as long as i can kiss/hug as well... for my sister... she likes him so much she made him her prof pic in fb... oh my..
sure...for ur sister...hahahha
For your sister??...Ok, then can I come also and kiss him once for my sister, once for my niece, once for my co-worker....etc??????! :D
Way too chipper in the morning. Lol. Good luck with finals, and have lots of fun afterwards catching up on your shows!
Total side note: just found out this week that Kim Ji Suk speaks English and German really well....he has just jumped to the top of my list....yumm
Apparently he went to middle and high school in England.... :)
Hours go by with only tears and mellow music. BUCKETS of tears.
Oh also one more week till freedom n endless hours of kdrama watching...and sleep....Yaye!!!!!!!!!!!
Haaaaaappy OT, dear Beanies!
Ah, you didn't know I was gone. But I was. I was in Copenhagen and couldn't watch any KDrama. It was hard!
... I blame the withdrawal for this: I dreamt that I met and talked to Park Shi-hoo who was working as a bodyguard at some KPop event. His English was perfect and he had quite a fat belly (he was about 20kilos heavier than he really is). Initially, I just wanted an autograph. but then we talked a lot (he had some colleagues there too). I told him about Lee Jun-ki's visit to Switzerland and how I didn't get to see him, despite my stalking. He didn't seem to like Lee Jun-ki much (he wrinkled his nose).
Maybe if we didn't watch so much, we'd met them in our dreams more! Not a theory I'd really want to test out, though
I have the exact opposite theory. I'll watch more and even have it running while I sleep --> MORE DREAMS!
I didn't dream of any k actors but hopefully one day I will. I shall make that a resolution for next year. But which one.. I guess if its a dream I can have them ALLLL
It was a wonderful dream. It made me very happy, and the effect is ongoing, even though that was two nights ago. And tomorrow, Cheongdamdong Alice will make me even more happy! ahhhhh! Life is good.
btw, enz, I know quite a few ladies who regularly have k-actor dreams. all very chaste, I must add.
It must be like that movie the purple rose of Cairo. Movie star comes out of the screen into the life of this girl who watches his movies all the time. Later, when he kisses her, he stops and says he doesn't know what's next cos in the movies, that's where he stops ( movie set during the time of depression )!!
So that's why all these chaste dreams.. Coz in kdramas most of the time, we only get kisses (often unsatisfactory ones wihtout passion on the part of the girl too). The poor k actors don't know what to do even in our dreams!!!
It's ok.. We take over and do all the difficult bits then. NEW YEAR's resolution ..dream uncharted dreams with k actors of choice . Yeshhhh
Enz, that might be the only New Year's Resolution I've ever been happy to make!
Actually KL, I meant to say unchaste dreams.. Dnt know how it became uncharted which think of it, is even better!
Oh and welcome back kakashi :)
Lol - maybe you need a shot of soju before sleeping! Good to see you on OT. Your Switzerland blogs were awesome to read, and such pretty scenery (both kinds)!
haha, thanks - and it helped to get over the sadness. I hope it has some effect on other Korean actors (i.e. they all want to come because they see how beautiful LJK looks because of the scenery)
I had a dream of Johnny Deep last week where we held hands. I blame the K drama's for my dream being so inocent.
A couple of years ago I dreamt that - ok you need a little background. My friends and I all live on the top of a tall hill and we jokingly call it the compound and dream of finding somewhere warmer to live where we COULD have a compound, AND we were getting ready to attend a Bon Jovi concert in a few days at this particular time - ok - so...I dreamt that we had our compound and it was having some work done and my boyfriend was the carpenter, working on cabinets in the kitchen. He was lovely from the rear, with pretty hair set off by a nice, soft, white sweatshirt, and a pretty butt set off by a nice, tight, perfectly faded pair of Levis. As I entered the kitchen he turned to hug me and I was conscious of two things: I REALLY love the smell of freshly cut lumber, and it was BON JOVI. S [Read more]
buahahaha, man, your dream tops mine by far!!! Though I like PSH much much more than Bon Jovi. Or Johnny Depp. I can't see Johnny Depp and not see Jack Sparrow. Plus, Depp means Idiot in German. That also puts me off.
LOL. nice discription and I want a compound with all my friends.
I actually am not in love with Johnny Depp, but I still wish I at least got a kiss.
LOL!!!! Did you get a piggy back too by any chance?
Welcome back! Did you see the Little Mermaid shown in IRIS1? *Everything comes back to Kdramas.*
wait ... that statue in IRIS was THAT statue in Copenhagen?! I didn't know that. No sightseeing for me anyway, but I already did that a few years ago, when I first went. This time, it was only for business.
Happy OT! Have only been watching School now. Getting prepared for the holidays and new year :)
Good morning my dear DB folk... Today I have not slept since I've just got off of a Hobbit high... :)
Hope you have a wonderful day and exceptional weekend!
Me too! I slept about 2 hours this morning haha! So tired!
Have you seen the movie? Did it meet the hype? I love Martin Freeman in the BBC Sherlock series (1/2 way through the second season) but its hard for me to picture his with big hairy feet. Hee.
I thought it was okay. I'm a MASSIVE lotr fan (my room is ALL LotR) so I wasn't disappointed, but it was okay.
I LOVED IT!! of course you're talking to a major tolkien fan... but yeah it was totally worth my money, time and sleepless day. Freeman was an awesome Bilbo and I'm loving Richard Armitage's Thorin- they are awesome. And there's the silliness of the dwarves... they're all a bit thick in varied different ways and have of course very distinct personalities so it's pretty entertaining to watch this band of mismatched stragglers bond and create strong ties to each other.
Have you all watched the air nz inflight safety message starring characters from LOTR?
YES!!! it's great!
Can't wait to see the Hobbit - an going with my bro on Christmas Eve. Real life story - I dated a guy who carved the Hobbit characters (yeah, I know, should have been a clue)- marionettes was what they were- and toured the show. I helped paint the backdrops.
Anyhoot, there were copyright issues, and it was so artsy and otherworld that our worlds ended up colliding. Bleh. Needless to say, I hate marionettes, they give me the creeps.
Happy Friday OT!
Good luck to all those with final exams!
Btw, KoD is freakin hilarious!
I'm only a few epi's in, but Anthony's character is over the top and adorable!
Jeon Woo-chi, The Great Seer, I Miss You, May Queen, and Alice in Cheongdam-dong complete my week. What are you guys watching?
i'm watching Alice in Cheongdam-dong and king of dramas. they really make my weeks along with 1N2D.
I'll give School 2013 a try after reading the recap for ep. 4, the twist in the finale left me craving for more.
I'm trying to watch IMY again but i'm not totally convinced, i was really invested in the first episodes but after they grew up the plot turned too soapy for my taste. The acting is pretty good but i have problems with the way the charaters behave and the "you are SY so i'm gonna become your stalker" attitude.
Absolutely love Madamme Butterfly, Cheongdam-dong Alice, King of Drama ang Gaksital.
Also watching Horse Doctor, God's quiz, School 2013 (I feel like there is something missiong in this show or maybe am just plain irritated by the bully who would dare hit a school teacher.)
Planning to start Queen Insoo and A wife's Credentials.
Queen Insoo is awesome - hands down the best sageuk of 2012, if not in recent times. So far they have subbed 14 episodes out of 60 and I hope the rest get subbed as well so that other people can enjoy the whole of the drama!
MisterX rates it highly in his award nominations:
Considering his taste in dramas, I bet it's not lightweight fare? :-P
I'm watching king of dramas and Alice in Cheongdam-dong.....
King of dramas: simply awesome and will soon become one of my all time favorites :)
Alice in Cheongdam-dong : it's also very good :)
just completed queen in hyun's man :)
planning to watch school 2013 as well.... ;)
And watching fugitive plan B again..with my mom :)
I TRIED TO watch fugitive plan b but daniel henney's acting is driving me crazy but rain sure is a sexy pervert
OH, and that girlfriend of his!!
I think I need to check out King of Dramas one of these days since I always here about it.
Happy Friday everyone, even if I'm not feeling the happiness coz I'm required to work this weekend.. :(
Just came home from buying Korean DVDs. I am sure I'll be my Mom's favorite daughter this Christmas..
Happy OT all! ^^
Still behind on lots of Kdramas. Been busy with real life and watching Jdrama, Thai lakorn and anime. heheh
School 2013 is getting really interesting. :D
Alice: still need to catch up.
GS: also need to catch up.
Jeon woo chi: need to catch up or might stop watching and marathon at a later date.
Doctor X: almost to the end. Still good.
On a more kpop note, I'm listening to lots of JYJ and Bigbang songs. hahah
Hope everyone is doing well!
Hello. I watched the first episode of Doctor X this morning.
I like it. I'll have to catch up on it this weekend.
Hi John! ^^
Yes, you won't regret watching Doctor X. It has a very ineresting storyline and the operations that they do in the show look real. lol
I'm so glad JYJ and SM settled. I know it's not gonna happen, but I'm desperate for a TVXQ reunion.
Yep, I'm glad too. However, until JYJ are on variety shows, etc, I'll believe it that SM isn't interfering with their activities.
Reunion? unlikely. I hope the singers stay friends though. Suks to ruin friendship over work/ent management.
Like cv, I won't believe the settlement until JYJ performs and is broadcast. I kept thinking about Junsu's Tarantallegra video and the awesome choreography. It was better IMHO than the MAMA award recipient.
Did you see the newest one...kinda bout the making of Tarantallegra? He looks beautiful...as a woman. ^^
Yes - I loved that video, with the different colors and such!!
Morning cv! How are things in your neck of the woods? Cold? I still love looking over my Big Bang videos on my phone. Have you seen the one online that Seungri took himself during the encore Friday night? I looked for us but couldn't find us, haha!
Hi! it's actually really nice today, in the 40s. But I heard it's suppose to snow/rain tomorrow so we shall see. Maybe we'll get lucky and it'll past us by? lol
So wolfboy is good watch then? hmm... I'll wait until it's subbed online.
Oh and I watched Silenced. Dam.... depressing and sad but it's good. Topic like that needed to be addressed and out in the open. At least now they are doing something about it in SK. But those so call teacher/officials got off too light.
Silenced - wow. So well done, and it did a great job of not sensationalizing and focusing on the pain of the kids. I encourage all of my U.S. teacher friends to watch it - you never know where it could happen again.
Still afraid to watch Silenced. Any kind of child abuse traumatizes me.
behind dramas?! i'm in stone age right now talking about kdrama eras... lol hi there! i love listening to BB... they keep me company and happy on the way to work... makes me wanna dance while walking under the sun.. wow! fantastic baby! happy otp!
Hi! glad to see another VIP fan! yay!
I'm trying to get more people to listen to kpop. lol
What's your favourite drama with Park Shi Hoo?
Since I have only seen him in 'How to meet your perfect neighbour,' I am currently debating over starting Alice in Cheongdam-dong or instead watch Princess' man or Princess Prosecutor?
Since Alice has just started, i suggest you watch Princess Prosecutor first. Or you can watch both since there's only 2 episodes released per week, you still have a lot of time to spare for PP. :-)
I guess you are right, I'm over thinking. I mean there isn't a thing as too much Kdrama or rather too much Park Shi hoo. : )
I watched Princess Prosecutor last week- it gets good after the first 3 or 4 eps and I really loved it. The trouble with watching kdramas is the more you watch, the more there is to watch. I am so behind even though I am trying to catch up - hooked, yeah!
"The trouble with watching kdramas is the more you watch, the more there is to watch." Tell me about it, I thought my question would lessen my problem but I now have three more PSH dramas to watch now! hehe
Thanks for the review though since I do still want to watch it and your encouragement would help get me past the first few episodes. I mean if PSH isn't enough encouragement. : )
Oh, the Princess' Man. *sigh* I watched that over Christmas last year and fell in love. Just a word of warning: it's incredibly addictive, so don't start it yet if you have big deadlines in the near future.
I've heard the other two are good, too, but I haven't gotten to them yet.
I agree. And I've been watching it over and over again. PSH's dramas are all good. :-)
Ahhh ..... Park Shi Hoo ...... You can never go wrong with him. I hope they air his new drama here in the U.S. *crossing fingers*
Thank you for the warning. I am actually looking for something for the holidays so I might just marathon Princess' man. I wanted something addictive and would leave me feeling satisfied. Thank you!
Smart choice!! His performance in PM was phenomenal!! He won my heart.
Anyone having a hard time watching Alice?? I thought I could do it for PSH but I'm just not connecting with it. I enjoyed reading recaps than the actual show.
Thank you for replying and the good review is very encouraging. : )
If you really have some time over Christmas go for Family Honour with Park Shi Hoo. I liked him best in there his dark and conflicted as well as his playful, funny side were displayed exquisitely. It's however 50 episodes. The storyline with Park Shi Hoo gets real romantic momentum from Ep. 15 onwards and keeps going strong till the end. The other storylines are very good as well. The drama is on viki.
Just talking about it, I feel a rewatch of the best scenes is just what I need this weekend.
Ooh! Something different. If I can find it then I will surely check it out.
Family's Honor is my favorite Park Shi Hoo drama. He's so, so, so hot as the rich jerk that I wish they'd redeemed him later in the show, so he could have spent more time being nasty and pushy. Say...episode 50.
It may be a long show, but it flies by.
Swoon i Love PSH in Family's Honor so much of the Cute!
I second that. That is my favorite sageuk. He was just so good in it. (The whole cast was good!) Prosecutor Princess is more cute, but good, too.
OK. Thank you!
"Being told most of my school-life that I’m weird and unlike-able by classmates and people I thought were friends, was not very healthy for my self-esteem, I think that’s where my need for confirmation comes from." Weird is relative. There's a story about a man who walks into a therapy session and sits on the one chair that is out of line with the others. The doctor asks why he chose the chair out of order with the others to which he replies, 'why do you think it was out of place? Maybe all the other chairs were out of line and it alone stood correctly in place.'
"...even though going in with a mindset that I will not succeed does influence the result a lot." Pre-emptive strikes don't actually bring security they just make you more paranoid. I don't think we shoul [Read more]
"Maybe all the other chairs were out of line and it alone stood correctly in place." Ha, that's such a great story! I really like it : )
"Just chose people who would be fair and are wise to begin with. Who wants the good opinion of an idiot? Exactly."Those are very wise words. And I know I shouldn't be too concerned with what other people think of me. And I didn't even wanted to be part of those girls, but always standing apart is no fun too. A lot of my friends then changed themselves so they good be part of that group, but I never did. That's why I never fitted in. It didn't make it easy for me, but I'm glad I stayed true to myself.
Hello there scrooge! I have to say that I don't celebrate it because I'm religious, but more because it's a tradition. The whole family coming together [Read more]
@FishcalledWanda - I feel like I've jumped into the middle of a private conversation that I don't see the beginning of, but this is the only place I see that you've posted on here so just want to thank you for reading my blog and enjoying it! Kang Hyung Min forever!
Aw, thank you! It was so funny that I had to laugh out loud! Please write more, you're hilarious! Also, my keyboard's thanking you for making me spurt out my drink, it needed a wash badly, hehe. Oh and before I forget: I made the Creme de Menthe Brownies of which you shared the recipe on your blog, they were delicious! So thank you for that too : )
I keep meaning to put my Kahlua cake recipe up there, but have to add a few other recipes of "regular" food first so people don't think all I eat are alcoholic sweets!
Regarding washing your keyboard - when I did that once it cost me $750! I have a Mac, with insurance, but water damage isn't covered. Better swallow before reading next time!
Haha, I'll keep an eye out for that cake then! There's nothing better than alcoholic sweets ; )
Eeeks, okay that scared me off! I don't know if my laptop is insured, but I'll keep any liquids out of a miles radius!
"...but I’m glad I stayed true to myself." The thing is if we change to fit in, we lose ourselves so that a disconnect forms between our actions and our feelings and we end up being alone again. Sometimes the world does make you feel like, 'Am I the only one?' but then once in a while you find someone who gets you and "it shines out all the more brighter for it!"
"I’m religious, but more because it’s a tradition." I do think it is one of the world's biggest traditions. I remember doing a project on Christmas around the world and it was really interesting learning about the different takes on it. Apparently in Korea it is seen this as a time of sacrifice and charitable efforts. However I too, like you love that it is a time when you spend time with the family. Me and my sister j [Read more]
Princess man and then Alice.
I could never finish his other dramas. Started liking him in PM. Good drama too.
OK, so a lot of support for PM. I generally tend to agree with people here so I shall follow your good advice. Thanks
OH that's easy... it's the Princess' Man by a long shot. That is actually one of my top 5 dramas ever. The romance is wonderful, the story is wonderful, both the H and h are wonderful. Honestly it is almost a flawless drama.
I also liked Park Shi Hoo in Prosecutor Princess, Queen of Reversals, and Family's Honor.
"almost a flawless drama" That's very impressive.
I had wanted to watch PM or tree with deep roots, i.e. a drama that needed time and commitment with lots of focus and attention but would return that love too. However people warned me about the endings to both so I always hesitated. I finally have some time to give a drama some due care and attention so I thought I would randomly through this question up in the air and see where it led me and fortunately I feel that PM is the way to go. : )
Thanks for the other recommendations, I will put them on my 'check out' list. Thank you.
they're all good!!
haha. I'm a big PSH fan. He has a very specific charisma. I find it hard to explain, but he does it every single time. He's in a drama and ... kabooooooom, I'm again deeply in love with him.
I'd watch Princess' Man first, overall, it's better than Prosecutor Princess.
Hehe 'Kaboom' I'm going to hear that every time I see his face now. Hehe.
OK, I think PM it is then! Thank you!
Did you like How to Meet your perfect neighbor? I started it, but I wasn't too into it and after the first ep stopped. I like Alice and PP and Princesses Man so don't know what to tell you there!
Hehe, no worries, I think I will watch them all eventually but for now I will start with PM.
As for HMPN, well if we lived forever, I would say sure watch it because it was an enjoyable watch with some good moments BUT since time is limited and the list of Kdramas to watch only ever lengthens, I would say watch something better. I found the characterizations very much stifled and annoying rather than engaging. The plot also dragged but maybe because it wasn't all that innovative or exciting.
I don't regret watching it, and rate it as something I enjoyed but I wouldn't return to it nor would I jump to recommend it. I hope that helped a little.
Thanks! The one thing that I hate is draggy plots. So I'll put that on my maybe never list.
Hands down Prosecutor Princess! I abosutley fell in love with him in this drama. His character is really dynamic and I love their love line. (Also shout out to PSH in sunglasses, in a tracksuit speedwalking, and PSH in a yellow V-Neck).
I also really loved his character is Queen of Reversals. One of my favorite drama characters of all time. (I would so day Yoo Gong shik in real life). His story doesn't really come into the picture till like episode 4 or 5 (or maybe later, cant remember) But he is awesome.
Also if you want to see PSH being cute watch Family's Honor. So freakin adorable!
"Hands down Prosecutor Princess! I abosutley fell in love with him in this drama."
Same here. I became a big fan of him because of PP. The very first PSH kdrama I've watched is Iljimae, but he didn't won me over there. Maybe because his character is not the good one, and there's LJK. I was a big fan of LJK that time.
Then, I've been considering to watch The Princess' Man for a long time but I didn't have the courage to watch because I'm afraid that the ending is sad (since the drama description tells it is the Joseon's Romeo and Juliet). Fortunately, after watching PP, the green light turned on for TPM.
After watching it, I realized it's a good thing I decided to watch PP. If not, I will never encounter an awesome actor with an oozing charm.
Now, my top 3 actors are:
1. Park [Read more]
Aw man, you are making it really hard with your sincere and passionate arguments! Also those descriptions have me really curious and excited!
OK, so I pretty much have PSH on view for the next few Kdramas. Win win really. Hehe.
Thank you for sharing.
Happy OT Fridaaaay!!!
Took my last final on Wednesday, and now I am free free free! Well, except for all of the things on my to-do list that I've been putting of because of school. : ) Catching up on dramas is, of course, on that list. I'm not caught up on ANYTHING right now, but I love the little bits and pieces of what I have seen. I especially love CWGM (just finished ep 4 last night) and School 2013 (I've only seen one episode, but it hit all the right notes - I am IN).
Hope everybody has a great weekend, and good luck to those of who are still taking finals. You can do it!!
Happy Friday, everyone!
School 2013 is so awesome it makes me want to squeal, and I'm way too old to do that in public so I will just do it here - it's brilliant! I love that 2012 is bookended by not one but TWO great dramas set in high school - first SUFBB, and now this, with Answer Me 1997 in the middle for a perfect sandwich <3
I'm also watching The Princess' Man, which I quite like, though I haven't come to Park Shi Hoo in Iljimae-costume yet so maybe that is why I don't LOVE it......but I do love the princess (great second leads <3) and Se-ryung, who is an awesome heroine even if JB and GF hate her sageuk diction (I suppose this is an...advantage of not knowing the language? lol)
I'm also into I Miss You, though I will watch episode 11 and repor [Read more]
Hi pogo! Come talk to me in #33 when you've finished IMY 11 and 12. I'm spent.
hey owl! I prob. won't finish Episode 12 till tomorrow, so if you're around for the weekend we can chat - I already see LOTS of tears in the few caps I've seen.
The Princess' Man will just keep getting better and better. I remember when I watched it at first I wasn't sure what the big deal was, and then all of the sudden I couldn't stop watching. I marathoned 24 episodes in one weekend. Such a great drama.
Loving King of Dramas, hooked to Alice in Cheongdamdong!
Have been watching eps 1-12 of King of Dramas over and over and over again while waiting for Monday! (Ok, maybe like eps 6 onwards, I rewatch them more coz they have all the memorable scenes!)
Will start on School 2013 soon! Hope the Jang Nara-Daniel Choi pairing is as good as when they were in Babyfaced Beauty!
What I'm watching:
- Cheongdamdong Alice: The 2 last eps were hilarious.
- King of Dramas. ♥
- Horse Doctor. The 2 last eps were super slow and dull. And still better ratings than KOD. *Headdesk*
- School 2013. Liked the first 3 eps. Ep 4 is repetitive (fights, fights and more fights: Do kids study in that school?). Hope it will have something new to offer next week.
- Can We Get Married? ♥
- May Queen.
- Rascal Sons. Seriously fast forwarding a lot.
- Priceless. ♥
- Kekkon Shinai. Like it.
- Doctor X. Stalled.
- A Great Way to Care. Still watching 1 ep by month when nothing else is available. At that rate I will need 9 months to finish it. Which suits me fine. :)
Thank God it's the end of FH2 this week: Funny in the beginning then [Read more]
hey how do you make a heart in a comment :D
I copy and cut it from my wordpress blog who has it in the custom characters. Surely there is another way but that's the only one I know... :)
or you can do ALT + 3
like this ♥....great!!
Ah, someone else is watching Priceless. ♥ is right. (Although I'm still putting Osozaki no Himawari higher up - ♥♥♥. Impatient for ep 6 and 7 which have aired but not been either uploaded or subbed...)
<I NEED Flower Boy Next Door, like yesterday
I'm loving School 2013. Every episode.
I still haven't watched eps 3 and 4 of Cheongdamdong Alice, the first two were not particularly compelling. The agreement from the recaps for ep 3 and 4 seems to be that it's gotten (significantly) better, but the storyline I'm seeing in the various recaps I have read just sounds so crazy! Like it makes no sense... so I'm not sure if I am going to try again.
Yes, waiting for subs for Priceless and Osozaki no Himawari . So, I watched Doctor X, which looks good.
I'm enjoying Osozaki no Himawari. So many good looking actresses. Cheery cast ensemble theme song too.
I love the cast ensemble theme song of Osozaki no Himawari! This is what drama watching does to you...
The boys are pretty too, but, you're right, Maki Yoko is gorgeous, while Kashii Yu has a rather distinct but intriguing look (as does Emoto Tasuku).
Everyone seems to be talking about Doctor X this week, I'll have to look into it.
I want flower boy next door tooooo! Nowww hahah!
When does it actually premiere?
Think the 7th of January on TVN
7th of January!!!! That's like.... in forever.
I'm convinced that there are more hours to the day in France :)
That's what I was thinking too! Lol
yes. definitely. Mysti, send me some of your time! thanks!!
I started subscribing to your blog as well. So good to have a blog that does k-dramas as well as j-dramas. Added some of your recommendations to my dramalist.
Priceless is definitely good. Have you tried Tsumi to Batsu? It's a Crime and Punishment adaptation with hikkikomori student. He's murdered now so he can't go back. (Kept wishing he wouldn't but...ah well.)
Also Ooku: Arikoto Iemitsu Hen. Sooooo good.
Hitorishizuka: Also good.
Am also liking Piece a lot.
And yes, am waiting and waiting and waiting for Flower Boy Next Door.
Carole, I'm a chicken: I have a hard time watching the darker J doramas. I mostly prefer the shows where they put their pink glasses on. I don't think I could handle Tsumi to Batsu...
Ooku: Arikoto Iemitsu Hen is on my to watch list.
Yeah...avoid Tsumi, then. I was already to be on my Japanese Raskalnikov but then he kinda did something that made me drop my romanticized idea of him -- no, not the first murder. So it'll be hard to keep being on his side.
Ooku is sooooooooo good. It's hard to write a character who is good, noble, self-aware, honorable...and yet not boring or pompous or self-righteous. This actor NAILS it.
Yay for someone else watching Kekkon Shinai. I like it a lot too, watching it is like comfort food.
Love Shuffle - Jdorama

Starting/Picking back up this weekend
Jeon Woo chi
Anything else that tickles my fancy. lol
Oh and I want to start reading the City of Bones series...
Also, am I the only one who's loving the soundtrack for School 2013? I knew the title track was by 4minute without even having to look it up, and it's so energetic it makes me want to dance.
Ikr, I really love the soundtrack too! :D
Me too! I usually don't notice the music so much, but they were playing "So Happy Together" during the bus ride during episode 4! So good!
Good luck to all in school right now! My daughter is taking midterms right now...8th grade is a challenge. So much homework and she's got FOUR midterms on Monday. Poor dear.
This week was entertaining. I got into my first heated discussion about K-pop and Gangnam Style. First off, I don't give a poo about that song. It's not my style and Psy is no flower boy. But don't sit here and tell me that I'M pronouncing it wrong when I've learned the dang hangul and listened to the flipping WORD in like a BAJILLION dramas...don't call him the "fat old Asian guy" because he's like MONTHS older than I am, he's been in the business for a million years, he's worked hard to get where he is now, and he's not a fly-by-night artist. I respect Psy. I don't care for him much, but dang he's worked hard. [Read more]
What's happening with PSY was predictable: People hear one song and start behaving like if they had invented the alphabet. Add a bit of anti-Asian racism and you have a nice stinking cocktail. Guh, we were there before them and we know better. :)
@Mystisith Yeah, I pretty much ignored all teh Psy junk b/c it's what happens with pretty much all pop stuff. The herd likes it and then they move on to the next. I just got really touchy b/c this was coming form people who completely dismiss my K-everything love! And they were acting like they knew EVERYTHING! Hey! Last time I checked I was the one with the kpop decal collection on my car and all that jazz! >_<
@CV I know! I think it was pretty harsh what Psy said back then, but I remember when those two girls were killed and it was a TERRIBLE time! I understand how emotions can really get out of control. He lived here, he knows not all Americans are douchebags, he apologized...get over it! My opinion hasn't changed. It's like when idols had been performing in blackfa [Read more]
It's hilarious that people loved Psy he's hot with his hit but when something bad is written about him from his past, everyone starts dropping or badmouthing him. That just tells me they aren't really fans but just people going with the flow of trend out there...when it ends, they end too.
Psy's music is different... mostly rap. I'm not really a fan of his music but I do respect that he's a musician and does work hard to get to where he is at today. It's added bonus that he's with YG ent which most of my favorites are from. Ex: BB, 2ne1, Seven, epikhigh, leehi etc. haha!
I always love to hear your convos with your daughter. What a good Mom!
The whole Psy thing is pretty comical to those of us in the know. And yeah, the fat old Asian guy comment is a bit much. I don't even equate him with Kpop. And I love when I mention that I went to see Big Bang, a kpop group, people ask me if I meant the guy who does the horsey dance.
Let's broaden our horizons a little, people!
@Korazy Lady Awww, thanks! <3 We have so many of these convos a DAY but I forget them! I think nothing beats me walking into the public library downtown a few weeks ago and seeing the red umbrellas hanging from the ceiling and exclaiming: "JYJ UMBRELLAS! FROM LOTTE DUTY FREE COMMERCIAL!" Cella looked at me like I was NUTS! HAHA!
Parts of me wishes that people would give kpop a real try, but then I worry...Kpop makes me feel special. What if by luck SHINee comes to towna nd I miss out on tix b/c all these new fans snagged them first? That being said, they wouldn't even come if there wasn't a fanbase...AGH!
ON THE OTHER HAND...licking Woo Bin should ALWAYS be a goal.
Oh yes! HAHA I've always said that i wanted to bite someone when I thought they were cute...to my delight I found out that it was an expression in Korea (more or less)! Color me happy!
Kim Woo-bin, be prepared for lovey bite marks!
HAHA! "Psy is no flower boy" so true. When GS came out my friends asked me if that was my favorite song now. I looked it up and saw him and without even hearing the song. I said, "no way". haha
plus I really don't care for the song. I'm loving Block B. Zicooooooooooooooo u r too young for meeeeeeeeee. omg. I'm still up. I wish I could fall asleep as fast as a Korean character.
LOL My daughter LOVES Zico! He's sooo cute! Do you know who else is cute? L. Joe from Teen Top. He's so teeny and manly and CUTE all at once. God, I feel gross even tying this hahah!
I can't help it. I love my flower boys. MYNAME is a super cute group. Every single one is adorable (ignore Gunwoo's lame hair in the Japanese version of "Message") and I switch from wanting to feed them to wanting to nom them. lol
haha! I know. I feel gross too. lol
ugh. even PSY is younger than me.
The first one was “name 3 personal goals.” She tried to put “Learn Korean, go to Korea, marry a Korean.”
Are you sure that's your daughter and not mine...
I'm pretty sure she's mine...does your have pink hair too? Hey, maybe our rugrats can go together. haha. I know a few people who live there (or are in the process of moving there) so that makes me feel better about it.
LOL! I can't wait to show everyone what I got her for Christmas! I got her the "Soy Un Taeminnie" shirt from EYK and I'm DYING for her to have it already. AGHHH!
