Eye Candy of the Week: Still Connected

bjh-23

Happy Sunday, Twinkles~! I hope you’re enjoying the first week of the fall season. As you’ve probably guessed by now, I am relishing the beginning of my favorite season! 😉

Don’t you love the fact that our eye candies continue to work together even after their roles in I Summon You, Gold have ended? This picture was taken during their music video shoot for The One‘s “One, Two, Three, Four” back in 2014 after Baek Jin Hee filmed Empress Ki.

Friday Fun: Park Bo Gum Fever

ff-09-23-16

We continue to observe Park Bo Gum Fever with this medley of songs that our dear little “Gummy” sang in the series Wonderful Mama (2013).

Yes, I acknowledge that many of my dear Twinkles have contracted this highly contagious Kdrama illness, and the only way to monitor and assuage their symptoms is to provide a vaccine of sorts in the form of more PBG clips. 😉

So…shall we usher in our first official weekend of the fall season? *squeals* My favorite season of the year has started, Twinkles~! *dances Happy Snoopy Dance*  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Bo Gum Fever

1% of Anything (2016): Teaser Awesomeness

opa

How timely is it that in my Children’s Literature course last night, I lectured on the power of an effective retelling of a story and then came home to discover that teaser #2 had been released?

Add to that coincidental timing the fact that I love the second teaser–and I mean LOVEI’ve completely reversed my stance on the remake. 🙂 After my mini-marathon of the original series this past weekend–even with the over-the-top acting and all–I still wasn’t willing to concede that the remake could be a good thing…until now!  Continue reading 1% of Anything (2016): Teaser Awesomeness

On the Way to the Airport (2016): Teasers

owa

The powers that be in Kdramaland are conspiring to kill us, Twinkles~! Here I was just going about my business–emailing students, tidying up my desk for the upcoming week, etc.–when I decided to treat myself to another peek at my YouTube feed. Oy~! B-I-G M-I-S-T-A-K-E…

*shakes fist at YouTube*  Continue reading On the Way to the Airport (2016): Teasers

Jealousy Incarnate: Bad Case of Second Lead Syndrome

ji-8

So…some of you may want to avoid reading anymore of this post if you’re tired of succumbing to the condition commonly known in Kdramaland as Second Lead Syndrome. Yes, I’m talking to you! 😉

However, if your heart can still handle falling for the adorable second lead and are prepared to suffer right alongside him–through all the highs and lows–you’re going to want to take a look at the sizzling onscreen chemistry between Pyo Na Ri (Gong Hyo Jin) and Ko Jung Won (Ko Kyung Pyo).

Just remember that I warned you… Continue reading Jealousy Incarnate: Bad Case of Second Lead Syndrome

Eye Candy of the Week: Pots of Gold – Part I

psj-22bjh-22

Happy Sunday, Twinkles~! I trust that you’re all doing well and staying healthy…despite the fact that we’re heading into flu and cold season. 🙂

For some reason, I’ve been on a “blast-to-the-past” kick this past week, watching clips from oldies but goodies like I Summon You, Gold and 1% of Something. Yes, I’m sure this walk down memory lane was prompted by the news of the upcoming remake (view post here). Seriously, I can’t wait to see the remake after my mini-marathon of the original this past week! 🙂

In any case, I hope these two eye candies of ours continue to bring smiles to your faces. 🙂 Have a glorious week, everyone!

Oh…! Anyone know the episode and scene of these two screenshots? *wiggles eyebrows* Seriously, I would be truly amazed if some of you can answer this question. 🙂

Friday Fun: Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum

ff-09-16-16

If the first part of 2016 belonged to Song Joong Ki with his blockbuster series Descendants of the Sun , I think it’s safe to say that his hoobae Park Bo Gum is staking the latter half of the year as his with Love in the Moonlight.

Shall we usher in the weekend with a fun little video of these two? 😉 Just be warned: Some of you may want to book the next flight to Korea. LOL   Continue reading Friday Fun: Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum

Eye Candy of the Week: Happy Chuseok!

bjh-21psj-21Happy Chuseok, Twinkles~! Can you believe it’s already time to celebrate the harvest festival in Korea? Oy~! Where did the time go? Pretty soon, it’s going to be November 4th again and time to celebrate SJS’s birthday. 😉

It honor of Chuseok this week, I thought that I would opt for the traditional hanbok. Don’t our eye candies look beautiful in their hanboks? 🙂

I actually entertained the idea of adding more eye candies–just for this week’s Chuseok celebration–since there are so many hanbok-wearing eye candies these days (i.e. Park Bo Gum, Kim Yoo JungLee Jun Ki, Kang Ha Neul, etc.), but I managed to restrain myself. LOL After all, I have to give the spotlight to our 2016 Eye Candies. 😉

In any case, I wish you a wonderful “harvest” week, Twinkles! As for my efforts to be glam, I’ve failed miserably and reverted back to my “usual” attire. LOL Perhaps I’ll try again during the holidays. 😉

Friday Fun: N (엔 of VIXX (빅스)) and Yeo Eun (여은 of Melody Day (멜로디데이)) – “Without You” (니가 없는 난)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

Whew~! Am I glad that it’s Friday…finally! I’m only in week 3 of the fall term, and I already feel as though I need to somehow learn the magical art of manipulating time. LOL

Since such a thing doesn’t exist, though, I’m just going to relish our weekends together! 🙂 You ready to usher in another “W”-onderful weekend? Enjoy!  Continue reading Friday Fun: N (엔 of VIXX (빅스)) and Yeo Eun (여은 of Melody Day (멜로디데이)) – “Without You” (니가 없는 난)

Eye Candy of the Week: Simple Yet Glam

BJH 19PSJ 19Happy Sunday, Twinkles~! I hope you’re all enjoying the last week of August. 🙂

As I mentioned in last week’s “Eye Candy” post, I’ve been making more of an effort to dress a bit more “stylishly,” and I can proudly share that I wore heels from Monday to Thursday of last week as I lectured. 🙂

Now with a new week before us, I find myself watching to be a bit more “classic” or “retro” glam, if that makes any sense. So…for this week, I’m going to try to take out my blouses, shirts, and blazers from the closet and let them see some beautiful California sunshine. In addition to the heels then, we’ll see how long I can keep up this “new” look. LOL.
