Here’s a new little corner to start off our “Fall 2014″ season: “Memorable Quote.” To introduce the quote, here’s a short glimpse into the conversation…Continue reading

I don’t know about you, but when I read that Song Il Gook took his sons–Dae Han, Min Guk, and Man Se–romping to the water park, I just about died! Poor Dad~! *anticipates exhaustion*

Friday Fun: Henry – “Bounce”

FF Henry

Woohoo~! Happy Friday, Twinkles!

It’s finally Friday! I cannot tell you how happy I am for today! :) For whatever reason, the first week back to school has been a rough one for me…I was so exhausted! I couldn’t believe how tired I was. *grimaces* The bright side of the week is that I met a great number of students (150+) who seem eager to tackle a new semester of studies with me! :) Their eagerness to learn and further their education helped minimize my fatigue. ;)

Without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s fun selection to usher in the weekend!

Glorious Day: Episode 38 Written Preview and English Translation

Glorious Day

The proverbial other shoe has finally dropped for Shin Ae, and in all honesty, I don’t know why the family kept this secret from her. Granted, the woman may be self-centered and all, but as the daughter, she should have been the first one to be told of her mother’s medical condition once Chul Soo became aware of the diagnosis. Hmmm…I guess we’ll see this Sunday how Shin Ae reacts to her discovery…

It’s OK, That’s Love: Episode 12 Video Preview

It's OK That's Love 12

We knew it was too good to last, and the Episode 12 preview seems to hint at the beginning of the end…not of Hae Soo and Jae Yeol’s relationship, but of the end of ignorance as people learn of Jae Yeol’s undiagnosed medical condition. Tomorrow’s episode seems rife with continued plot and character development. Hmm…This series really doesn’t know when to take a break, huh? Usually, series start to lag a bit in the middle of the series, but It’s OK, That’s Love just keeps chugging away. Perhaps this is why it’s become such a favorite show of mine! :) Continue reading

Wednesday What?!: August 27


Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Thank goodness for Wednesday, the wonderful mid-point of the week when we play a fun little game and wait anxiously for the written previews to Glorious Day. :) I don’t know about you, but I’ve had an exhausting first two days back at school, and I’m in much need of cheering up and playing silly games. ;)

I hope your week is going well so far. It’s Wednesday, and you know what this means! The game’s afoot, Twinkles! ;)

Happy Monday, everyone! :)

For those of us dreading the start of another work week, if we keep telling ourselves “Happy Monday!” it’s likely to be happier, right? ;)

Nothing cheers me up more than a kid having a memory-making moment with a parent–yes, I like alliteration LOL–and today’s video selection from The Return of Superman simply warms the heart as Tablo and Haru go on a romp to an animal farm. :) Continue reading

Bulletin Board: August 24 – 30


Hi, Twinkles!

I hope that you’ve all been well. :) Some of you may have been surprised by the number of posts yesterday, but it’s easily explained by the fact that I had Saturday technically free with teaching duties since I’m done with the summer term. Of course, next Saturday will be a completely different story. >.<

In any case, if you’re new to the Musings community, a big welcome to those of you who have joined us this week! Without further ado, let’s get started with this week’s announcements! :)

Script: They really can’t take pictures. A snapshot with a dam that’s not even visible.

Glorious Day: Episode 35

GD 35

It’s Saturday! Woohoo~! Another Glorious Day! Pun intended. :) And since Dr. Kang rarely gets LOTS of love from Glorious Day fans, I thought that I would shower him with some love by featuring him as this post’s cover. :)

Much happens in today’s episode…especially as Jae Woo finally learns the truth behind Grandmother’s ailment. I confess that I haven’t watched the full episode yet, but I wanted to get this post out to you as soon as possible, so…I give you this very truncated recap of the video clips released by SBS. Many thanks to the studio for making these clips available to its viewers! :)

The Return of Superman: Song Il Gook and His Three Boys at Lunch

Superman 2

One of my favorite Kdrama actors, Song Il Gook, has joined the show The Return of Superman with his three boys–triplets. Yup, you read correctly: T-R-I-P-L-E-T-S! :) And he’s named them Dae Han, Min Guk, and Man Se…what a patriotic set of boys! :)

If you thought taking care of one toddler was a handful, wait until you see a dad single-handedly take three boys to a buffet of all places and try to feed them lunch…without any “major” mishaps. Hee~! Anyone want to say “Mission Impossible” now? ;)

Let’s take a look at the show’s Captain Song as he leads his small troop of boys to lunch! Continue reading
