Wednesday What?!: Dec. 17

Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles!

It’s officially the first day of winter break for me, and I’m finding myself literally snowed with errands…! Errands that I’ve been putting off until my grades were posted…LOL. *happy sigh* Despite the busy schedule, it feels nice to be on break now.

For those of you still diligently plowing through the work week and/or finals weeks, I wish you good cheer and an extra dose of encouragement! The end is in sight! ;)

Now, everyone ready for this week’s picture? The game is afoot~!

K-Pop Star: Park Yoon Ha – “Sad Fate”

KPS 4

Three of Korea’s K-Pop giants are at it again, this time rolling in the contestants of K-Pop Star Season 4. Now, I know that I had said I wasn’t going to cover the series until the contestants were through the audition round and in full competition mode, but what’s a twinkie to do when she needs a break from grading and a plethora of YouTube videos are at her fingertips? ;)

I just took a peek at one video clip–honest!–and was simply taken with Park Yoon Ha‘s rendition of an old timeless Korean classic. Let’s take a look, shall we?Continue reading

Hi, Twinkles!

The weekly bulletin board post is here! I haven’t forgotten…just in case some of you were surprised that you couldn’t read it at your usual time–assuming you have a regular time when you read this weekly post. :) The good news is that it’s still Sunday where I am, and I am still in time for  a Sunday posting…at least according to Pacific Standard Time. ;)

As you can imagine, I just got too tired last night from grading and prepping for Sunday that I went to sleep without typing up the weekly bulletin board, hence the later-than-usual post. You all understand, right? :)

In any case, now that I’ve had some sleep and finished my Sunday church service and duties, let’s get to some of this week’s announcements…!

Hi, Twinkles!

Happy first Sunday of December! Has anyone started an official countdown yet? Hmmm…I guess I can start one…or NOT! :) I’m still in finals mode, so fun things like countdowns will have to wait until next week. ;)

MBC Drama Festival: The Diary of a Resentful Woman (2014)

WN 1.1

For those of you who have never heard of MBC Drama Festival, it is a series of 10 episodes that features one-episode stories by new directors and writers, stories oftentimes considered experimental or unconventional stories. This year’s festival started back on September 4th, but I didn’t get a chance to check out the showcase of episodes until today…because one of my favorite actresses Kim Seul Gi is headlining today’s broadcast titled, The Diary of a Resentful Woman. Her smirk in the cover picture seems to say it all, doesn’t it? ;)
