Goblin: Episode 13 Squee Moment

This scene just doesn’t get old! *indulges in another squee moment*

For those of you who have already watched today’s episode, my selection of this particular scene as the “Squee Moment” should come as no surprise. It features the long-awaited/long-dreaded sword-pulling scene, and our master writer Kim Eun Sook beautifully untangles many of her well-crafted knots in this 3-minute clip…!

Goblin: Episode 6 Squee Moment

Episode 6 continues the story in much the same vein as the previous episodes–further development into the characters and story with a liberal smattering of humor nicely mixed in with the drama.

Despite the number of memorable scenes today, though, I’ve got to admit that Kim Eun Sook knows how to plan her cliffhangers. This is the last scene of the episode, and we get our first kiss in a way that makes sense. And yes…it’s not a trick of the camera angle as in Weighlighting Fairy Kim Bok Joo this past week. 🙂

Goblin: Episode 5 Squee Moment

I’ve been doing errands left and right today, but I managed to take some time to watch today’s Goblin episode, and oh my cuteness! I just had to log in to blog about this short but squee-worthy moment. Sure, there are a great number of them in this episode–as with the other episodes–but this one is particularly cute. Enjoy~!  Continue reading Goblin: Episode 5 Squee Moment

Friday Fun: Shinhwa – “Orange” (오렌지)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! We have less than ten days before Christmas. I hope you’re not getting caught up in the flurry of the gift-buying season and are instead able to relax a bit this weekend and actually enjoy yourselves. 🙂

To help us usher in another weekend, I thought the men of Shinhwa could help us relax with their latest song, “Orange.”  Continue reading Friday Fun: Shinhwa – “Orange” (오렌지)

Friday Fun: Park Jin Joo

ff-12-02-16

Hi, Twinkles~! It’s been a while, huh? My apologies! I’ve certainly been remiss in my blogging, huh? 🙁

Well…I was going to wait until my final exams and grades were all posted to resume blogging, but I just couldn’t resist sharing with you my newest pixie crush. 😉 Yup, it’s Park Jin Joo who stole many of our hearts in Jealousy Incarnate as the deadpan nurse who masterfully handled our recalcitrant Lee Hwa Shin. 🙂 Once you see her, I think you may just end up developing a pixie crush yourselves. 🙂

So…here’s a return to our weekly “Friday Fun” with two songs that are designed to uplift your spirits and set your feet tapping. 🙂  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Jin Joo

Walk down Memory Lane: The Master’s Sun (2013)

MS 17.46

I can’t believe the month of October is over after today and with it, the opportunity for more walks down memory lane for 2016. 🙁

Ah well, all good things must come to an end at some time, I suppose, and there’s always next year as bittersweet as this may seem right now. On the bright side, it’ll just make us anticipate the “Walk down Memory Lane” for 2017 all the more! 😉

For our fourth and final memory for 2016’s “Walk down Memory Lane” then, I thought it only fitting that we conclude this year’s stroll through our memories with the blockbuster of 2013. 🙂 Thanks for being a part of so many wonderful memories…!
