The men of Shinhwa make another appearance in this “Friday Fun” corner with what promises to feel like a mini-concert for us. :) Here to help us usher in the weekend is a compilation of three songs that are, for all intent and purposes, “classic” Shinhwa. Enjoy~!Continue reading

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles!

In any case, it’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot!

Friday Fun: Shim Eun Kyung – “One More Time” (한번 더)

FF 03-20-15

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

Today’s FF comes to you from one of my favorite movies of 2014, a movie that introduced me to the greatness that is Shim Eun Kyung. There’s a reason why she won the 2014 Baeksang Arts Award for Best Actress for this role. The young star already had quite the impression list of movie and drama roles–not including her somewhat questionable performance in Tomorrow’s Cantabile–and this role, which required her to portray a grandmother in a twenty-year-old girl’s body is certainly a feather in her acting career/cap.

Let’s take a look at one of my favorite songs from the movie…Continue reading

Wednesday What?!: March 18

Wednesday What Yellow

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles!

I hope you’re all enjoying hump day and bravely forging through the week with a smile firmly in place and a spring in your steps! :) If not, perhaps today’s pictorial challenge will help you smile and bounce…just a wee bit, especially if you remember the scene. ;)

It’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot! ;)

Hi, Twinkles!

I hope you’re all doing well this beautiful Sunday! :)

I’ve been trying to manage my time more “efficiently” as I divide the 24 hours allotted to me among my various Real Life obligations and social media fun time. Let’s just say that I’m still tweaking my schedule. :P Shall we get started on this week’s announcements? ;)

Friday Fun: Jung Woo – “I Give My All to You” (나 그대에게 모두 드리리) and “When the Saints Go Marching in”

FF 03-13-15

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

This week’s FF selection comes to you all the way from Singapore as our dear shl requested the soothing songs from the men of C’est Si Bon. I hope you’re ready for another weekend because this week’s songs are perfect to ease us in for a hopefully relaxing and recharging few days. :) Let’s take a listen to this performance from Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook…

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 20 Preview

KMHM 20

I’m surprised that the preview to the final episode is already up. Oftentimes, studios like to keep any spoilers regarding the last episode pretty tightly under wraps. Hmmm…hurray for us! :) Let’s take a look at the clip…because as Ri Jin slowly says her farewells to Do Hyun’s various personas, our last and final persona makes his appearance…Continue reading

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 19

KMHM 19.1

Although I was sorely tempted to pass on blogging this morning because of my schedule, since today’s episode is the penultimate episode, I felt the need to cover what I could of Episode 19 before Real Life yanked me out of Kdramaland. So…you all ready to brace your hearts for our goodbyes with Ri Jin, Ri On, Do Hyun, Perry Park, Yo Na, etc.? Boxes–yes, boxes!–of tissue paper within arm’s reach?

You can see the raw episode here or hereContinue reading

Hi, Twinkles!

I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the “beginning” of Spring. Yes, I know: The first day of Spring 2015 isn’t until March 20, but I usually think “Spring” when we spring forward one hour for Daylight Savings time. Yup! That’s how I mark my seasons, and I’m sticking with it. *nods for emphasis*

Now that I’ve cleared up that little bit of convoluted thinking, shall we get started on this week’s announcements? ;)

Friday Fun: 2PM – “Come Back When You Hear This Song” (이 노래를 듣고 돌아와)

FF 03-06-15

Happy Friday, Twinkles! :)

For this week’s FF selection, I thought that I would introduce you to a song that I think represents the type of songs (not music video) I usually like. You can think of it as a “quintessential” Snoopy’s Twinkie song–upbeat and a song that I can bop to while I go about my day. ;) You ready to take a listen?

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 18

KMHM 18.5

I still haven’t seen the episodes for this week–I know, some of you can’t understand my bizarre method of blogging–but I thought that you should at least have some report of Episode 18 from me before I leave for work so…

The drama and hijinks continue if the clips are any indication. Heh. The Oh Twins seriously crack me up, and then add Do Hyun/Perry Park/Yo Sub/Yo Na to the mix, and we’ve got a veritable party in the house! ;)

You can view the raw episode here or here. Detailed descriptions of the clips are below. Continue reading
