The Return of Superman: Song Il Gook and His Three Boys…Daily Triathlon

Superman 8

The more I see of Captain Song and his hearty little band of boys, the more I’m impressed by his unflagging strength…or rather how quickly his boys are “aging” him. ;)

As always, the triplets give their papa a run for his money. They’re not called triplets for nothing! Triplets = Daily triathlon training for Dad! :) Continue reading

Wednesday What?!: Sept. 17

Wednesday What Green

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Whew~! It’s Wednesday again, and the week is halfway over! Hurrah!!!!

I don’t know about your part of the world, but my section of good ol’ Earth is burning up like nobody’s business. Seriously, it was 103 degrees Fahrenheit today, and the air was so incredibly hot and arid that it hurt to breathe. Truly. :(

But enough about my sizzling part of the world and onto our mid-week game! Yup, it’s Wednesday, and you know what this means! The game’s afoot, Twinkles! ;)

Memorable Quote: My Secret Hotel Episode 7

My Secret Hotel 7

In Episode 7, Kdramaland collides with the world of K-variety as Hong Jin Young plays a cameo and mistakes our Jo Sung Gyeom for her We Got Married husband Namgoong Min (actor’s real name). Even more hilarious is that she calls him Goong Min oppa, referring to her earlier mistake of thinking his last name was Nam instead of Namgoong. Heh. I made the same mistake until Hong Jin Young’s error on WGM introduced me to the existence of 2-syllable Korean last names…learning new things every day… :)

In any case, I’ve been loving the Hong Jin Young-Namgoong Min couple and their multitude of drama vignettes on WGM. This cameo appearance of hers seems like just another of their playful scenes together. Heh…too cute! Without further ado, here’s today’s memorable quote from Episode 7 of My Secret Hotel.

You can see the raw episode here or here.

Wednesday What?!: Sept. 10

Wednesday What Orange

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! I trust you all had a “glorious” Chuseok…despite the fact that the holiday put a major crimp in our regular K-drama viewing schedule. *sigh* I guess we can live with just one episode from Glorious Day and absolutely no episode–NONE WHATSOEVER–from My Secret Hotel this week.

What.

*swallows any further outbursts* Oh yeah, we’ll survive. We may not be “happy” about it, but we’ll survive…won’t we? ;)

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

Woohoo~! Happy Friday, Twinkles! It’s time to start the weekend!!! Can you tell that I’m glad the work week is over? ;)

Now, with Lee Teuk back from his mandatory military service, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate his return with a Friday Fun posting. After all, as half of the much-loved TeukSo couple, he’s a favorite with at least one of the bloggers here in this community. :)

Wednesday What?!: Sept. 3

Wednesday What Purple

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Whew~! I made it just in time tonight to post this week’s “Wednesday What?!” still on a Wednesday. :)

I hope your week is going well so far. Last week’s challenge must have been from a series aired too long ago because there wasn’t a whole lot of response to the picture. Hmmm…let’s see if I can remedy the situation with a more recent pic. :)

It’s Wednesday, and you know what this means! The game’s afoot, Twinkles! ;)

We last left the Song men enjoying their romp to the water park. This segment shows their lunchtime, and imagine Song Il Gook’s surprise when he takes the boys to eat at the first restaurant that he sees…and finds himself at another buffet! LOL

Let’s take a look at how Captain Song tries to make this buffet trip a bit “better.”  You can take a look at their first buffet experience hereContinue reading

The Return of Superman: Tablo and Haru at the Mud Flat in Jebudo

Superman 5

As much as I adore little Haru, I think I enjoy her segments as much as I do because of her awesome dad, Tablo. Anyone else agree with me on this? I’m really looking forward to seeing how this father-daughter duo continues to make onscreen magic for us viewers. :)

Happy Tuesday, Twinkles! I hope this little clip of the Lees brings you some joy today! Continue reading
