Without further ado, let me go ahead and announce our winner…and I’m also including a surprise announcement. *cues drumroll* This month’s giveaway winner is… Continue Reading…
This week, I’m going to be asking you three questions about a show I know many of us enjoyed: Answer Me 1997 (and if you haven’t seen it, well, you have one whole week in which to marathon the drama. Ready, set, go!).
I’d like to know:
1) Did the drama engage you immediately, or did it take you a while to warm up to it?
2) Who was your favourite character?
3) What’s the one thing (technology, music, clothing, hairstyles etc.) that catapulted you back to your 1997 self?
From the moment that we are born, we are taught invaluable lessons, lessons that many of our teachers–parents, mentors, siblings, etc.–hope will last us throughout our lifetimes and ones that will keep us forging confidently through all that Real Life has to throw our way.
Starring: Kim Rae-won as Yoo Il-han, Lee Sung-min as Hee-seok, Jo An as Seong-hee, Lee Gwang-soo as Jeong-il and introducing Ji Dae-han-I as Young-Kwang
Rating: PG-13, language
Running Time: 135 min

We’re kicking off a new corner this week, with We Got Married‘s newest couple: Woo Young and Se Young. This segment finds Se Young in hot water and Woo Young in… a princess dress?
One thing’s for sure: life with these two will never be boring.
I hope you’ve all been well this past week! In case some of you haven’t heard, I was supposed to be incommunicado this weekend for a 2-night/3-day church winter retreat with my little minions, but due to inclement weather and bad road conditions, I’ve had to reschedule it for another weekend. *sigh* I suppose it’s better to be safe than sorry, but there are a number of disappointed teenagers and the task of rescheduling everything now.
In any case, the good news is that I was able to use the weekend to catch up on Real Life and keep up with blog maintenance…even if this meant that I had to revise some of my scheduled posts to reflect the retreat cancellation. Continue Reading…
Today is March 1st, a day that Koreans remember as the start of the oppressed country’s fight for freedom from Japanese colonial rule.
For a Korean-American like me, historical moments like this one have taken on more significance and resonance as I get older and learn to better appreciate my rich heritage and ancestry. The countless faceless and nameless men and women who fought for the simple freedom to speak and write their own language, observe their own cultural traditions, and claim Korea as their country and identity strike a haunting chord within me, often bringing tears to my eyes. Yes, I do cry…sometimes. Continue Reading…
Hurray! It’s that time of month again! Giveaway time! LOL
Since we’re in the between month of winter and spring, I thought it would be nice to offer a light and fluffy OST, not that I ever prefer the serious and somber, right? ;) Continue Reading…
The format of this week’s Thursday Three is slightly different, in that instead of asking one question and getting three answers, I’m going to be asking three questions about one specific drama.
I’ve chosen one I think most of us have seen: Boys Over Flowers, and my questions are:
1) Which character was your favourite?
2) Who was your least favourite?
3) Which scene made you cry? (or, okay, made you feel emotional, as I know some of you *eyes Grace* don’t tear up easily.)
Day 2 in Korea…I hope you’re ready!
Despite the jet lag of that first day, I was, thankfully, able to get up fairly early the next morning. I had arranged to meet my friend Alice and two other friends, Yong Suk and Joo Ri, in the city of Bu Pyeong for a cup of coffee, some great conversation, and of course church service. Heh…some of my little minions were surprised that I still go to church when I vacation. *shakes head* Silly little minions. LOL Continue Reading…
I hope you’ve all been well this past week! Sorry for the later-than-usual bulletin board post. Let’s just say that I was made acutely aware of how fickle technology can be. Heh. I misplaced my laptop’s power cord yesterday, so little Einstein (my laptop) has been asleep since yesterday afternoon, which meant that I couldn’t blog until now. Seriously, I think that I must have searched almost every nook and cranny of both my house and church today, trying to locate that power cord…only to find that it had fallen into a crevice between the hallway and the family room of my house. -.- Anyhow, that’s enough about my search for the power cord. Let’s get on with this week’s bulletin! Continue Reading…
This week’s Thursday Three is ever-so-slightly different, in that I’d like you to pick any 3 kdrama characters… and then tell me what you think their theme songs would be.
(And no, the songs do not have to be in Korean.)
As you all know by now, I have an interesting idiosyncrasy: I watch clips and read spoilers even though I’m behind on the series.
Case in point? This little clip from Episode 18, which I haven’t seen yet and probably won’t see for another few days. *chuckles and then shrugs* Whuh? As if you’ve never done this before?
Happy Thursday, Twinkles!
One of my YouTuber subscriptions just posted a NG (“no good”) video clip of this scene from Episode 3, and I thought I’d share it with you. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing the behind the scenes hilarity! If you need a reminder of the scene–as if some of you don’t have them all memorized and categorized by heart!–I’m including the link to the recap here. I hope you enjoy these two filming take after take for one of my favorite scenes in the series! Continue Reading…
How this series loves to tug at our heart strings! If the preview to Episode 18 can be believed, we’re in for some seriously adorable and lovey-dovey moments between our two principal lovebirds.
You can find a clip of the preview to Episode 18 below as well as the English translations to the dialogue. Enjoy!
Woohoo~! I am officially done with all my deadlines for the Winter 2014 term! Never mind that the Spring 2014 term starts tomorrow. Heh. Tonight, I get to celebrate by blogging and hanging out with you all! Woohoo~!
Now, some of you may wonder, what is the topic of today’s musing… Continue Reading…
