The Return of Superman: Tablo and Haru…at the Dentist

Superman 29

It’s been said often that children are more resilient than adults think, and today’s segment with Haru demonstrates this quite clearly and definitively: Our spunky marine-life-loving 5-year-old girl puts on a brave face for her anxious father.

*warm fuzzies* Our little girl is growing up into such a strong young woman…I LOVE it! :)

The Return of Superman: Song Il Gook and His Three Boys…Alligators!!!

Superman 26

I’ve been fighting a losing battle for the past two weeks or so with my allergies, and for the past few days, my battle morphed into an all-out war as I conceded defeat and succumbed to other ailments. *sigh* So you can imagine how much I welcomed the newest segment of our three little angels, especially since I can’t call in a sick day this week, not with my students all scheduled to take midterm exams throughout this week. :(

Thank goodness for the Song triplets and their alligators! What is it with these boys and their love of alligators? First the song…and now, it’s cute, adorable alligator plushies! ;) Continue reading

Walk down Memory Lane: High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs (Week 22 – Episode 98 Link and Recap)

Today’s “Walk down Memory Lane” features Episode 98, which resonates with me as I am quite attached to my “older” cell phones and try to use them for as long as I am able. Needless to say, I have yet to switch over to a data plan/smart phone. :)

In addition, this episode epitomizes what I love about the third installment of the High Kick series: It’s a smooth blend of the comedic and the dramatic, often eliciting laughter and tears from its viewers within the same episode…even within the same scene!

Let’s take a look at the recap from February 18, 2012…verbatim. :) Continue reading

2 Days & 1 Night: Season 3 – “Struggling Friend, Part I”

2D1N 1

I don’t know how many of you follow the recast series 2 Days & 1 Night, but I took a quick peek at it today on the suggestion of one of my church minions and was pleasantly surprised by how much this show has changed (and survived) since the days of Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi

If you’re in the mood for a fun little variety show that demands incredibly ridiculous and difficult tasks from its members, this may be just the variety show for you! And today’s episode…let’s just say that I was quite thrilled to see just how sweet one of my favorite actors Jo In Sung continues to be in his relationships with his sunbaes like Cha Tae Hyun.

Walk down Memory Lane: High Kick 3: Counterattack of the Short Legs – Episode 69

High Kick 3 (2)

Hello, Twinkles!

Today’s post continues our 4th birthday celebration with the return of the annual “Walk down Memory Lane” corner. As you can see from the cover picture, this year’s featured series is the third installment of the High Kick franchise. Personally, I adored this series because it was a combination of comedic hilarity and dramatic poignancy. For a daily–probably one of the few I’ve actually seen–this series ranks right up there in the top 5.

Without further ado, I present to you my humble little recap written back in January 5, 2012, of Episode 69 (Week 16, broadcast on January 3, 2012). Enjoy the “walk down memory lane,” Twinkles! Continue reading

The Return of Superman: Fathers…

Superman 22

Fathers…what can I say other than that they play such a significant role in the consciences of their children. Whether a “good” father or a “bad” father, men can exert quite the influence on their children.

Let’s take a look at just four fathers and be warmed by their efforts to love their children as best as they can. Continue reading

You’re All Surrounded: What Were Your Thoughts on the Series??

Finale-cap: What can I say? Absolutely nothing! I am posting this because I feel so guilty that we came so close to finishing the recaps on this series but unfortunately either it was us or the drama that totally fizzled in our minds that we just…couldn’t…do…it.

The Tourist: Shall We Take a Journey…to Macau?

The Tourist 5

With the official beginning of the fall season, it seems appropriate to bring you a special event here at Musings of a Twinkie, especially as we get ready for our 4-year birthday. :) It’s my privilege to present to you (for your viewing and listening pleasures) the entire–yes, entire!–solo concert that The Tourist held this past summer in Seoul. *pauses for dramatic effect to let that bit of news sink in*

I am so excited that Peter Dal Woo Kim, the leader of the group, decided to make this video available for us! I had been disappointed when my little hoobae, Aulia, couldn’t make the concert and cover it for us during her trip. Imagine my utter delight then when I was able to watch the entire concert from the comforts of my home from Southern California! ;) Continue reading
