A SURPRISE POST! Here in the U.S., we are getting ready (most of us) for a long, hot holiday weekend, Memorial Day. For those on the coast, we know that this mean triple the traffic, accidents, short tempered drivers and just being miserable on the road. But for those lucky, it means some great barbecues and food galore. Continue reading
The end-of-the-term time is once again upon us, and I’m finding that this term, I’m a bit more pressed for time than in the past. As such, sad as I am to be typing this post, I’m going to be taking a self-imposed hiatus from my little Kdramaland play world until my RL duties for work and school are under control.
Fear not, though, Twinkles! I shall be back within the month. In the meanwhile, NewKDramaAddict will be holding down the fort with her ever-constant “Movie Monday” corner. And…you can always revisit past posts to keep yourselves entertained until I return.
I shall miss writing posts for you to read and interacting with you, but rest assured…I shall return! Until then, I wish you all the best…!

Happy Friday, Twinkles! And what a truly happy Friday it is! What time is it?!
*shouts “Jinusean time!”*
To help you celebrate the end of another work/study week, especially since some of you students are about to hit your final exams, I offer you a song that may just help provide you with some very much needed relief from stress. 😉 Oh, and the cover picture of the Beamer…I just couldn’t resist featuring it. Can you blame me? *whispers in awe* It’s stunning. Continue reading
By now, you should all know that I adore the Song Triplets, and in particular, Song Dae Han, hence the cover picture of just him by himself and without his brothers today.
Apparently, KBS is capitalizing on the widespread popularity of their newest and littlest stars by having them advertise the variety show, The Return of Superman…as if the show needs any more marketing. Heh.
If you’re curious to see what’s in store for us this May 17th, take a peek at the boys with their father here. Just be forewarned that you’ll probably squeal and gush when you see these three, so you may want to view the clip when you’re either by yourself or with “Kcraze-understanding” peeps. 😉
*For English-subbed videos of the episodes from the variety show, you can check them out here.
Our dear Eye Candy is back, everyone! Woohoo~! *blows noisemaker* Granted, he’s not back in a full-series format as many of us hope, but still…!
As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, So Ji Sub made a brief appearance in the Hong Sisters‘s latest project, Warm and Cozy (starring Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang So Ra), that began its first broadcast today. *hums happily* For those of you who can watch Korean dramas without English subtitles, you can check out the first episode (here or here). In the meanwhile, if you’re wanting to check out just the clip with SJS, keep reading for the video and a brief update on what our dear Seo has been up to! Continue reading
Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Woohoo~! It’s Wednesday!!! 😀
This week, kfangurl quickly solved the “mystery” and thank goodness she did since hers was the only comment. LOL. We definitely have a good number of silent lurkers here, don’t we? *shakes head ruefully* You can check out her answer here.
Everyone ready for this week’s challenge? It’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot!

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! Let’s get started on this week’s announcements! Like last week’s bulletin, I’m afraid that this week’s announcements will be short…at least I think it will be.
To spark off a fun-filled weekend for you all, I bring to you this upbeat song from Henry and Amber. If nothing else, their antics on stage should bring some smiles to your faces. Continue reading
Happy Parents’ Day, Twinkles! If you’re a parent, I honor you today, and if you’re not, I honor your parents then on this 8th day of May.
The relationship between a child and his/her parent(s) is such a complex thing, filled with love, gratitude, responsibility, angst, sadness, etc. How can I possibly even try to verbalize what mothers and fathers are to children? All I can say is that for me, my parents have been an incredible source of encouragement, patience, insight, love, guidance, etc….especially these past few months since I’ve morphed into a veritable grizzly bear. Truly. *sheepish grin*
So as I honor my parents, I wish you–if you’re a parent–and your parents a blessed Parents’ Day!
I think we’ve already established the fact that I can sometimes be a glutton for punishment and that I can be quite loyal at times, right? Well, I’ve been keeping NewKDramaAddict company in her journey through the painful series, Lady of the Storm, and decided to “take one for the team” by briefly recapping Episode 134 and the preview to Episode 135. Why, you ask? Because our dear NKDA can’t stomach the roller coaster that is Lady of the Storm today and plans to skip out on Episode 134. What can a fellow Twinkle do but help a dear friend when she’s down? 😉 Continue reading
Happy Wednesday, Twinkles!
This week, it was a joint effort as Kehinde and Brenda came through with the answers for last week’s challenge. Woohoo~! You can check out the comments here.
So you all ready for this week’s challenge? It’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot!
Happy Children’s Day to all the Twinkles under the age of 18! Today is the day that we celebrate Y-O-U! *dances Happy Snoopy Dance* And if some of you still insist that you’re children at heart, we celebrate the child in you, too! 😉
If you did not know, you’re finding out now that every May 5th, Korea takes this day to celebrate children and to shower loads and loads of love on them so that, hopefully, each and every child feels special and, more importantly, loved. Continue reading

Just when I was expecting an end to this little sketch–after all, almost everyone is now in the know–the writers ingeniously insert a new twist. Yes! I quite approve of the new plot development. *nods in approval* Want to know how this story is taking shape? Keep reading and watching then! 😉 Continue reading
Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I’m going to keep today’s post really–and I mean really–short. I’ll explain the reason as soon as I’m able. 😛
Without further ado, let’s get started on this week’s announcements…few as they are.
In case you haven’t heard, May is the month when Korea celebrates children (May 5th – Children’s Day) and parents (May 8th – Parents’ Day). In honor of these two holidays, I’m calling this month “Family Month” and holding what I hope is a coveted prize package. Let’s get into the details! Continue reading
For this Friday’s selection, I came across this beautifully sung quartet performance from last year’s LA Korea Festival and thought that some of you might like to ease into this weekend listening to it as well. Enjoy, Twinkles! Continue reading
