I can’t believe it’s already time to announce the winners to this giveaway! Time sure flies when one’s head is in the midst of grading. LOL.
Let’s just get right to the winners, shall we? Continue Reading…

The two main characters of Answer Me 1997 make their much-anticipated cameos in Answer Me 1994‘s Episode 16 set to broadcast this Friday. We don’t see a whole lot of their roles here in this preview other than the fact that they’re high school students again, especially since it looks like the director released a NG clip of the two of them filming. In any case, the preview clip and translation of the dialogue can be found below. Enjoy!
Kyahhhh~! I knew I loved the two mothers. More than the love stories in this series, I find myself immensely enjoying the various friendships, and the odd friendship between Tan’s mother and Eun Sang’s mother is one that brings a smile to my face, especially when Tan’s mom is up to her silliness.
As usual, the clip to the preview and its English translation are below.
I hope you’re enjoying the second week of December as the 2013 year slowly approaches its conclusion. I, for one, am trying to stay as healthy as I can in the midst of grading (final semester grades need to be posted by Tuesday of next week).
In light of the hectic schedule, I’ve had to definitely push back a few things to the back burner…like trips to the post office, holiday shopping, etc. Continue Reading…
The series throws another curve ball (baseball reference intended) at our newly minted couple. We’ve got six episodes to go, and Episode 16 seems to hint at a possible time lapse during which Na Jung and Oppa will be apart from each other. Hmmm…it’ll be interesting to see if the old adage, “Out of sight, out of mind,” proves true in their case, and what this means for Chil Bong.
As usual, the clip of the preview along with its translated dialogue can be found below.
I’ve been fooled yet again by a well-placed, misleading preview. When will I ever learn to watch these previews with a discerning (aka suspicious) eye? *deep sigh*
The good news for Team Oppa fans is that Oppa is not, I repeat, not out of the honeymoon phase of his relationship with Na Jung. And the good news for Team Chil Bong fans is that “It’s not over till it’s over.”
Let’s get this recap started!
Tell me it isn’t so! Tell me that Oppa hasn’t already moved out of the honeymoon stage of his relationship with Na Jung! The preview to Episode 15 seems to indicate that Oppa may lose Na Jung after all…just as his little cousin predicted in the hospital.
No~! Say it isn’t so and that it’s just the writer yanking our chains again. -.-
As usual, you can catch the video clip of the video as well as the English translations below.
I nearly forgot about this post! I almost had a panic attack earlier today when I realized that I’m so behind on this week’s dramas that I even lost track of the hotties! But then, I figured that Eye Candy is not all about guys! I have girl-crushes, too! Continue Reading…
Some of you may have already heard through the Kdrama grapevine, but it’s official: Friend 2 is coming to North America (U.S. and Canada) and set to premiere on December 13, 2013. That’s next Friday!
This is the long-anticipated sequel to the 2001 blockbuster hit, Friend, which stars Yoo Oh Seong and Jang Dong Gun. Friend 2 stars Yoo Oh Seong, who reprises his role, along with Joo Jin Mo and relative newcomer Kim Woo Bin, who is winning hearts left and right with his recent portrayals of high school bad boys in A Gentleman’s Dignity, School 2013, and most recently Heirs.

Today’s episode really felt like Chil Bong’s episode to me. Sure, we see Na Jung and Oppa enjoy the first stage of their relationship, but Chil Bong’s continued patience and perseverance in his devotion to Na Jung really stands out to me for some reason, probably because his conversation with Na Jung is Just. So. Darn. Bittersweet. It really gets me here. *pounds heart with fist to clear ache*
And the “last” night mentioned is not the military service for one of the boys but something equally distancing as Chil Bong says his goodbyes to his friends.
In under 12 hours–sooner for some of you Twinkles around the globe–we’ll find out just how quickly Na Jung and Oppa adapt to life as a “couple” and how the rest of the gang, especially Na Jung’s parents, react to this new development.
Until then, I give you our usual weekly preview clip and English translations. Enjoy!
I’m still buried under this avalanche of papers, but I came up for a quick breath of fresh “air” and saw the newly uploaded MV from Koyote’s “After Winter.” I thought that this would be a fun, upbeat song to share with the rest of the community, especially those who are trudging through finals comme moi.
Sharing is caring! And I love that my Twinkles community is always available to provide such warmth and comfort to me during this time of year. Enjoy!
On this sad Thursday, I’d like to know: which 3 couples did you ship madly, against all odds, even when it looked as though that ship might (or definitely would) go down in flames?
Once again, it’s that happy time of the month when our community celebrates the joie de vivre with giveaways, and this month–because it’s the month of Christmas, which I absolutely adore–there’ll be what seems like a non-stop series of them. No one’s complaining, right?
To kick off the holiday season, this giveaway is sponsored by none other than our dear Nayong, who has kindly given me a DVD box set for one lucky Twinkle. Of course, she’s opened it to ensure that it has good English subs.
Interested? Keep on reading then! Continue Reading…
It’s official. Just as the waterworks–aka angst–starts with a vengeance on Heirs, my schedule gets the better of me, and I’ve had to stop watching. Hmmm…Is this just a convenient coincidence?
Seriously, though, I am keeping tabs on the story via my youngest sister who’s apparently enthralled with the story. Heh. Personally, I think it’s the number of pretty eye-candy on the show that’s caught her interest, but hey, at least she’s back in Kdramaland.
As usual, the preview to the episode is below with the English translation. Enjoy!
It is, unfortunately, that time of the term again when I get buried under what feels like an avalanche of papers and exams…which means that my Kdrama watching and blogging become sporadic. I’m hoping that this time around, though, the grading won’t be too brutal, but one never knows….
Despite entering into finals week in just a few days, I couldn’t resist sharing with you this video clip of the cast of Answer Me 1994 as the actors go about filming last week’s episodes. Enjoy!
From time to time, one hears of surreal situations that arise like this past week’s episode of Answer Me 1994 in which Kim Min Jong sang the congratulatory song at Na Jung and Mystery Groom’s wedding. How did the celebrity from Kdramaland end up singing at Na Jung’s “real life” wedding…and with Samchunpo singing Son Ji Chang‘s part no less?
A chance meeting that was cultivated for over 8 years by a father who dreamed of presenting his daughter with an unforgettable wedding gift, that’s how.
This is akin to what happened recently when I traveled to Korea. Continue Reading…
