Friday Fun: Unnies (언니쓰) – “Right?” (맞지?)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

I bet you’re surprised to hear from me before my self-imposed September comeback, huh? 😉

Although I’m still dealing with Real Life in all its various shades of joys and struggles, I just couldn’t resist sharing with you something that’s been giving me great joy these past couple of months.

There’s a new girl group in K-pop, and Unnies is making a name for itself! Not only is this newbie group comprised of seven extremely talented women in their respective professions, the members span an unprecedented age range from the teens to the forties! The variety show world–despite the sometimes lackluster ratings–has been rocked with mirth and warm fuzzies as these women bond together to forge the newest K-pop girl group, and now they are taking the K-pop industry by storm! At least I think so! And if the music charts can be believed, so does the rest of the K-pop world! 😉

So…since sharing is caring, I wanted to share with you something that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and a light skip or two to your hearts! And if you follow the Sister’s Slam Dunk Season 2 show, the “extras” in the music video are going to have you chuckling in appreciation! 🙂 Continue reading Friday Fun: Unnies (언니쓰) – “Right?” (맞지?)

Friday Fun: Kim Ji Soo (김지수) – “Dream All Day”

This week’s Friday Fun is dedicated to all you Twinkles who love to frolic in Kdramaland with Park Seo Joon! The music video seems to encapsulate the typical Kdrama fan’s dream, wouldn’t you say? 😉

Enjoy! Continue reading Friday Fun: Kim Ji Soo (김지수) – “Dream All Day”

Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! Are you excited today? If not, I think you will be when you read that the newest JTBC series Strong Woman Do Bong Soon aired its first highly-awaited episode today and released the first song of its OST.

Are you excited now? 😉

Without further ado, let’s take a listen and more importantly, a closer look at the series that may just put the cable station JTBC on a whole new footing with us Kdrama fans. If nothing else, it’s promising to provide us with a super adorable couple who will probably make our hearts pitter-patter with glee each Friday and Saturday for the next few months. 🙂 Yup, I’m talking about Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik! 🙂  Continue reading Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)

Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young – “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” (Fabricated City OST)

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)

Friday Fun: Block B – “Yesterday”

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! I hope you’re all staying warm and anticipating the weekend!

For today’s selection, I thought that I’d share with you a recent “find” of mine–Park Kyung. I first saw him as the “idol brainiac” on the tvN show, Problematic Men, and instantly became smitten with his persona.

Simply put, the show is a brain-teaser for anyone, but for those who find intelligent people attractive…well, it’s television at its best then! If nothing else, the show feeds the eyes and the brain. 🙂

Who knew that I’d come to love Park Kyung’s trademark expression of “Bam!” and his corresponding arm gesture? LOL. Shall we take a look at the FF…?  Continue reading Friday Fun: Block B – “Yesterday”

Friday Fun: Angels (앤젤스) – “Always for You” (얼웨이스 포 유)

From time to time, I experience this odd nostalgia for Jang Na Ra, and today is one of those times. 🙂

I can’t explain why or when this happens, but for no apparent reason, I suddenly develop this intense craving to watch her in something or listen to one of her songs. And lucky you! You get to partake in my craving today! 😉

Perhaps it’s because she’s one of those Kdrama stars who represents for me some of my favorite and earliest Kdrama memories; I loved her in My Love Patzzi (2002) and absolutely adored her in Successful Story of a Bright Girl (2002).

So to celebrate her longevity in the Kdrama industry, what better way to indulge in my Jang-Na-Ra nostalgia than with this sugary music video from one of her recent shows, One More Happy Ending (2016)? 😉

In the immortal words of Sung Deok Soon (Reply 1988), “Let’s music!!!!” *chuckles* Where’s my Jung Hwan and his stunned look to complete this reference? 😛 Continue reading Friday Fun: Angels (앤젤스) – “Always for You” (얼웨이스 포 유)

Friday Fun: Park Hyung Sik (박형식)- “I’ll be Here” (여기 있을게) from Hwarang (화랑) OST

Happy Friday, my dear Twinkles~! I hope you’re all staying healthy and warm this last Friday of January 2017! 🙂

Today’s “Friday Fun” comes to us from Park Hyung Sik, one of the few idols I have seen who can act, and I mean really act! If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was strictly an actor and not an experience idol member of the group ZE:A. Needless to say, I’ve been quite smitten with him since I first saw him as the rascally Jo Myung Soo in Heirs and warm-hearted Cha Dal Bong in What Happens to My Family? 

I think you’ll agree with me when I say that he’s not only a prime example of Kdrama Eye Candy but also a soothing dose of Kpop Ear Candy! Who better than Park Hyung Sik then to help us usher in another weekend? 😉  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Hyung Sik (박형식)- “I’ll be Here” (여기 있을게) from Hwarang (화랑) OST

Friday Fun: Rain – “The Best Present” (최고의선물)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

With the pouring rain here in Southern California AND the recent wedding announcement of Rain (aka Jung Ji Hoon) and Kim Tae Hee, I thought that this week’s “Friday Fun” selection just had to be Rain’s latest song, “The Best Present.”

Only fitting given the circumstances, wouldn’t you say? 😉  Continue reading Friday Fun: Rain – “The Best Present” (최고의선물)

Friday Fun: AKMU – “Reality” (리얼리티)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! It’s certainly been awhile since I’ve blogged…or at least that’s what it feels like to me. 😛 And although I’m a bit late, I wish you all a very happy New Year! 🙂

Many thanks to NewKDramaAddict for keeping Musings alive and well these past few weeks while I sorted through certain things; I’ll be blogging about just what those things are in the coming weeks. 🙂

For now, let’s jump right into the first Friday Fun selection of 2017! The dynamic duo we know as AKMU is back with a quirky take on the yodel. Enjoy~!  Continue reading Friday Fun: AKMU – “Reality” (리얼리티)

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: Chan Yeol (찬열) and Punch (펀치) – Goblin OST 1 “Stay With Me”

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

As you may have noticed by now, Kdramaland is atwitter with the goodness that we know as Goblin, so for this week’s “Friday Fun,” I thought it only appropriate to give a nod to one of the great songs that is helping to create such wonderful delight for us. 😉 Continue reading Friday Fun: Chan Yeol (찬열) and Punch (펀치) – Goblin OST 1 “Stay With Me”

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

Friday Fun: Park Bo Gum Fever

ff-09-23-16

We continue to observe Park Bo Gum Fever with this medley of songs that our dear little “Gummy” sang in the series Wonderful Mama (2013).

Yes, I acknowledge that many of my dear Twinkles have contracted this highly contagious Kdrama illness, and the only way to monitor and assuage their symptoms is to provide a vaccine of sorts in the form of more PBG clips. 😉

So…shall we usher in our first official weekend of the fall season? *squeals* My favorite season of the year has started, Twinkles~! *dances Happy Snoopy Dance*  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Bo Gum Fever

Friday Fun: Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum

ff-09-16-16

If the first part of 2016 belonged to Song Joong Ki with his blockbuster series Descendants of the Sun , I think it’s safe to say that his hoobae Park Bo Gum is staking the latter half of the year as his with Love in the Moonlight.

Shall we usher in the weekend with a fun little video of these two? 😉 Just be warned: Some of you may want to book the next flight to Korea. LOL   Continue reading Friday Fun: Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Gum

Friday Fun: N (엔 of VIXX (빅스)) and Yeo Eun (여은 of Melody Day (멜로디데이)) – “Without You” (니가 없는 난)

ff-09-09-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

Whew~! Am I glad that it’s Friday…finally! I’m only in week 3 of the fall term, and I already feel as though I need to somehow learn the magical art of manipulating time. LOL

Since such a thing doesn’t exist, though, I’m just going to relish our weekends together! 🙂 You ready to usher in another “W”-onderful weekend? Enjoy!  Continue reading Friday Fun: N (엔 of VIXX (빅스)) and Yeo Eun (여은 of Melody Day (멜로디데이)) – “Without You” (니가 없는 난)

Friday Fun: Ahn Hyeon Jeong (안현정) – “You and Me” (그대와 나)

FF 09-02-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

It’s been another busy but meaningful week for me, and hopefully, you’ve had just as meaningful a week as I, minus the craziness. 😉

Without further ado then, let’s usher in another “W”-onderful weekend! Enjoy!  Continue reading Friday Fun: Ahn Hyeon Jeong (안현정) – “You and Me” (그대와 나)

Friday Fun: Jeon Woo Sung (전우성) (Noel (노을)) – “My Heart” (내 맘) – “My Heart”

FF 08-26-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

To celebrate the reunion (finally!) of our beloved Kang Chul and Yeon Joo, I offer you today’s “Friday Fun” selection–number 6 on the OST.

I don’t know about you, but my first week of the fall term was a crazy one–almost as crazy as the events of W, maybe LOL–so this song is perfect to quietly usher us into a much welcomed weekend! 🙂 Enjoy!  Continue reading Friday Fun: Jeon Woo Sung (전우성) (Noel (노을)) – “My Heart” (내 맘) – “My Heart”

Friday Fun: KCM – “Remember” (기억)

FF 08-19-16 W

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

So…I’m obviously still on my kick. 🙂 As I get ready to return to my college for another academic year this upcoming week–my first faculty meeting of the year is today (Friday)–I thought a slower song for this Friday would be appropriate as a slow deep breath before plunging into the hustle and bustle of the fall term. 🙂

Enjoy! I wish you a soothing and calm weekend, my dear Twinkles! Continue reading Friday Fun: KCM – “Remember” (기억)

Friday Fun: Love in the Moonlight Dance Party!

FF 08-12-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

And O.M.G! For this week’s “Friday Fun,” I bring you a treat that is guaranteed to make your jaws drop in stunned amusement and your eyes twinkle with mirth…at least if you have the same sense of humor as I do! 😉 Enjoy and let the weekend festivities begin~! Continue reading Friday Fun: Love in the Moonlight Dance Party!

Friday Fun: W and Uncontrollably Fond

The little canine who keeps me busy.
The little canine who keeps me busy.

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

As you know, I’ve succumbed to the lure of W and was actually going to mini-recap Episode 6 on Thursday, but alas, Real Life duties intruded into my Kdramaland fun and prevented me from frolicking with Kang Chul and Yeon Joo.

*deep sigh* >.<

However, I thought that I could at least share with you a fun little music video from the series, and just so that some of you don’t feel the sting of leaving Uncontrollably Fond in the ratings dust, I’m also offering you all a bonus Friday Fun selection. After all, some of you may want to go and support the other series as well. 😉 In truth, I like watching Shin Joon Young and Noh Eul as much as I enjoy watching Kang Chul and Yeon Joo. 🙂

In any case, have a fabulous weekend! Enjoy the Friday Fun selections, my dear Twinkles~!
