Musing for Today: Sibling Love

So Eul Da Eul

Siblings, like so many things in our world, can be a source of great strife and pain, but they can also be a rich source of endless love and support. We’ve seen this demonstrated time and time again in our personal lives, in the lives of our beloved K-drama characters, and most recently in the lives of the newest little munchkins in The Return of Superman.

Week after week, Lee Da Eul unashamedly displays his love and affection for his older sister, Lee So Eul, by shadowing her every move. Talk about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery! If you haven’t seen these two in action, you absolutely must. They are sweetness and love all bottled up in pint-size munchkin bodies! *squees from cuteness overload*

Recently, I received an email from one of my silent Twinkles–we’ve long accepted the fact that many of you are silent readers; yes, I’m talking about most of you reading this right now LOL–and her email made me think a great deal about sibling love and just how beautiful a thing it is.

FF 04-29-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

Woohoo~! *belts out in song* It’s Friday! It’s Friday! It’s Frrrrrrrriiiiiiiidddddddaaaaayyyyyyy! *finishes with a twirl*

Seriously, I don’t think I’ve looked forward to Friday like this in quite some time. Why, you ask? *sheepish grin* Because I don’t have to go to school today and can use the day to catch up on errands and grading.

Yeah, I know…It’s “boring,” mundane stuff. *chuckles* I did say that I take pleasure in simple things, did I not? 😉

Anyhow, today’s Friday, and we need to C-E-L-E-L-B-R-A-T-E. You ready to celebrate the end of another work/study week and the beginning of some much needed rest and relaxation? 😉

Here’s an oldie but a goodie from the movie, Passionate Goodbye (2013). Such a heartwarming music video! Enjoy~! Continue reading Friday Fun: Lee Hong Ki (이홍기 of F.T. Island) – “Jump”

BJH 7PSJ 7

Happy Sunday, Twinkles!

Here’s wishing you another awesome week of work/study! Fighting, Twinkles! 🙂 Not only will we survive, but we shall thrive! 😉

Friday Fun: 2PM – “Please Call My Name” (내 이름을 불러줘)

FF 04-22-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

For this week, I thought that I’d take us all back to 2013 when the guys of 2PM brought into creation a beautiful song that reminds me of just why I adore the group as I do. 🙂 And to make the song even more meaningful, it seems as though our US-raised Ok Taec Yeon helped to write the song.

Cool. Very cool. 🙂

Shall we usher in another glorious weekend with this upbeat song then? 😉 Enjoy~! Continue reading Friday Fun: 2PM – “Please Call My Name” (내 이름을 불러줘)

Friday Fun: CNBLUE (씨엔블루) – “You’re So Fine” (이렇게 예뻤나)

FF 04-15-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

The guys of CNBLUE are back, and they’ve got another toe-tapping, heart-bumping, feel-good song to help us usher in the weekend!

What a nice little reminder that although our world may foolishly measure beauty based on outward appearances, some think otherwise. As this music video showcases, what’s truly beautiful is the beauty that resonates from the inside.

Shall we say hello to the weekend and do some awesome good in our world? 😉 Enjoy~! Continue reading Friday Fun: CNBLUE (씨엔블루) – “You’re So Fine” (이렇게 예뻤나)

FF 04-07-16 1

To make up for last week’s missed “Friday Fun,” I thought that I would give you double the energy and excitement for the weekend with the latest song from none other than K-Trot’s “vitamin” girl, Hong Jin Young! *applauds enthusiastically*

If you’re having one of those ho-hum days, I hope her “Thumb Up” song cheers you up and reminds you that you’re pretty awesome! “Thumb Up” to my beloved Twinkles out there in Real Life!  Continue reading Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young (홍진영)- “Thumb Up” (엄지 척)

Eye Candy of the Week: That Wow Moment

BJH 4

My apologies for the late “Eye Candy” post today but perhaps this fun little picture that I’ve unofficially titled, “That Wow Moment,” will make up for the lateness of the post and still give you that extra spring in your step to tackle another work/study week! 🙂

If you are a fan of this couple from I Summon You, Gold!, you will surely recognize this “Wow” moment. 😉 Don’t you just love Baek Jin Hee‘s reaction to seeing Park Seo Joon at the lake? OK, fine. I’ll amend that to Baek Jin Hee’s character’s reaction to Park Seo Joon’s character’s lake pose? 😉

Happy Monday, Twinkles~! Fighting! Wishing you all a “Wow” moment of your own this week. 😉

BJH 3PSJ 3

Happy Sunday, Twinkles~!

Here are our two rays of sunshine for the week. May their megawatt smiles energize you for another productive and diligent work/study week! 🙂

In honor of Easter, I thought that I’d pick pictures of our eye candies wearing white. Don’t they look beautiful in white? 🙂

For those of you who celebrate Easter, I wish you all a Happy Easter! Jesus has risen, my lovely twinkles! 🙂

Friday Fun: Tim Hwang (팀)- “I Love You” (사랑합니다)

FF 03-24-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

I thought that on this Good Friday, a slow and soulful song would be more appropriate, given the solemnity of today for those of us who observe Good Friday.

So…I introduce to you an old yet still beautiful song, one that catapulted Tim Hwang into ballad stardom back in 2003. May this lyrical song help you usher in a meaningful weekend of reflection and celebration. Continue reading Friday Fun: Tim Hwang (팀)- “I Love You” (사랑합니다)

Friday Fun: Jang Na Ra – “Sweet Dream”

FF 03-18-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

It’s finally the end of another work/school week, and I thought that I’d take you way back into the past with one of my favorite songs by Jang Na Ra. Yeah, I’ve been on a Jang Na Ra kick these days since the end of her recent series.

As you usher in the weekend with today’s selection, don’t be surprised if the music video seems “current.” If you haven’t already figured it out yet, you’re going to learn with today’s video that one of Korea’s original K-pop “fairies” hasn’t aged much since her debut over fifteen years ago. 😉   Continue reading Friday Fun: Jang Na Ra – “Sweet Dream”
