Memorable Quote: My Secret Hotel Episode 10

My Secret 10.1

Episode 10 is going to tug at your heartstrings as it seems as though Hae Young is edging forward in his campaign for Sang Hyo’s heart in the earlier part of the episode, only to be pushed back by both Sang Hyo’s determination to move on and Sung Gyeom’s full-on campaign to press his suit forward as the episode progresses.

*sigh* I no longer know who’s the male “lead” anymore since I don’t know how the writer’s going to extricate herself from this quandary: Hae Young shrinks in pitifulness while Sung Gyeom increases with muhshiseoness.

Whuh? *blinks eyes innocently* You’ve never heard of Konglish? ;)

The Return of Superman: Song Il Gook and His Three Boys…Tricycle Lesson

Superman 11

Captain Song is one smart father as he tries to teach his boys how to ride tricycles and recruits three neighborhood hyungs to be his boys’ personal teachers.

*screeches to a halt*

Did I just type “one smart father” and “tricycles” in the same sentence? LOL. Oh, this is going to be fun! ;) For his part, Song Il Gook is well aware of how rambunctious his boys can be and fully anticipates spending most of the afternoon chasing after the toddlers…And since the hyungs were so helpful, I thought that the most helpful one should get some love from us with a cover picture, don’t you? :D

*happy grin* Toddlers on wheels…Just the thought of them is enough to chase away the Monday blues. Let’s get recharged with the Song Triplets! Continue reading

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. ;)

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.

Woohoo~! Happy Friday, Twinkles! It’s time to start the weekend!!! :)

As you listen to and watch the music video, I hope its message will propel you into taking action this weekend…and live a life without regrets! :) Without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s Friday Fun selection to usher in the weekend!

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.


*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! ;)
