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…!

Walk down Memory Lane: Heirs (2013)

heirs-1-3

In staying with this year’s “Walk down Memory Lane” stroll through the year 2013, it seems fitting that our third memory come from Heirs and the memories associated with that show that had so much potential but failed to deliver on so many levels by its conclusion.

Incidentally, this was the first time that I blogged for DramaFever, which was a fun experience in and of itself but one I was never able to repeat due to scheduling constraints. Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Heirs (2013)

Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

GFB 13

Our second memory for this year’s “Walk down Memory Lane” comes to us from our Gu Family Book series back in 2013.

As much as we adored Lee Seung Gi and Bae Suzy, it was really Choi Jin Hyuk who stole the show–for at least the first two episodes–as he exploded onto our collective radars. I think it’s pretty safe to say that this series helped shower him with some serious stardust.

OK, I concede that the series sprinkled a good amount of stardust on some other rising stars like Sung Joon and Yoo Yeon Seok. We really shouldn’t forget about them either. 😉

It was also the first series that I tried the video recap format. You remember how this was my “real” foray into YouTube, recapping the episode on video and uploading just pictures on the blog posts? Hmmm…I have mixed feelings about those old videos. LOL. Seriously, I took a quick look at the one associated with this post and had myself a good chuckle. Heh. Ah well, it’s all part of our past romps together….

Anyhow, without further ado, let’s take a look at the post for Episode 1!  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today

AM1994.3-42013-11-10-22h03m02s220

To new and seasoned Twinkles alike, I bring to you our annual walk down “Memory Lane,” a nostalgic stroll down previous blog posts that is designed to help us relive our memories from those times or to introduce you to past posts if you missed them because you are new to Musings. And again, my apologies for the lateness of our walk this year. At least we still have seven days left of October for our strolling, right? 🙂  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today

Wednesday What?!: October 28, 2015

WW

Happy Wednesday, Twinkles! Woohoo~!

Anyone excited for She Was Pretty today? *wiggles eyebrows and chuckles gleefully* The preview to Episode 12 was quite the provocative teaser, huh? 🙂

However, since this post isn’t about that series, I’d better move on and get right to the point. 😉 After a very silent “Wednesday What?!” challenge the other week, last week’s mystery was quickly solved by XXYYZZ. Congratulations! You’re this week’s true K-drama fan! 🙂 You can check out her comment here.

Now, in anticipation of So Ji Sub‘s return to the small return in a few weeks and since this month is our annual walk down memory lane, I thought the picture below would be apropos. 🙂 It’s Wednesday, Twinkles! *blows noisemaker* And you know what this means. *wiggles eyebrows* The game’s afoot!

Walk down Memory Lane: The King 2 Hearts – Episode 15

K2H 11

Team Korea proves in this episode that team work and an unwavering faith in each other can cover a multitude of disadvantages. This was definitely one of my favorite episodes…hmmm…Actually, I can’t really pinpoint a favorite episode to save my life since I loved almost all of them. However, if pressed to explain why this particular episode was a favorite, I’d probably have to say because it not only gives us a celebration of Team Korea’s WOC win but also Jae Ha and Hang Ah’s win. 🙂

Shall we plunge into the recap…? You can take a look at the original post and comments here. Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: The King 2 Hearts – Episode 15

Now, please keep in mind that I got swamped with Real Life between episodes 8-13 back in 2012, so we’ll be picking up from Episode 14. *hangs head* I know…some of you were looking forward to reliving some of the awesome moments from those episodes…like Jae Ha’s abduction and subsequent proposal to Hang Ah. 🙁

Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today – In the Eye of the Beholder

AM1994.3-42013-11-10-22h03m02s220

Some of you know that right around this time of year, I take a bit of time to help some of the students in my personal life revise their personal statements as they apply to colleges/graduate schools. In the midst of preparing another “Walk down Memory Lane” post for The King 2 Hearts, though, it dawned on me that some of the new Twinkles here in the Musings community may find the following post–a “Musing for Today” post–helpful, especially if you missed it when it first published back in November 12, 2013.

If nothing else, it’ll be a nice reminder of just how perspectives may change based on who is doing the beholding. 🙂 I hope some of you find this journey back in time to one of my past “Musings for Today” helpful as you reflect on how to present yourself to the admissions committee! 🙂  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Musing for Today – In the Eye of the Beholder
