News: The Battleship Island (2017)

Let me first preface this post by confessing that I just got home from a 3-hour evening lecture, so I’m feeling a bit drained. I make no promises of complete coherence in this post. 😉

Barring certain lapses in coherent English, though, I just couldn’t resist sharing with you a trailer that I saw earlier today. Truthfully, I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw it during my lunch break.

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

The Princess of Trot (aka Hong Jin Young) is back with another song, this one from the newly released movie, Fabricated City (2017), which stars Ji Chang WookShim Eun KyungAhn Jae Hong, and other notable stars.

I know that the song is a bit melancholy and odd–the clips from the movie don’t seem to quite fit the song–but it’s Hong Jin Young, and you know how I feel about her. 🙂

So let’s get this weekend started with another HJY song! *blows noisemaker*  Continue reading Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young – “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” (Fabricated City OST)
