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. 🙂
Starring: Ray Chang as Ruei-Jia Chang (Hao), Tiffany Hsu as Xie Xin-yi, Chung-Hua Tou as Instructor Luo, Jieh-Wen King as Hao’s father, Yi Ti Yao as Qiao Qian-Hui, Hans Chung as Shen Zhi-chao (Superman), Hsi-Sheng Chen as Qiao’s father, Cheng-Chun Liang as Chen Tian-hua, and Wei Ai as Xin-yi’s father

This week, NewKDramaAddict is taking us on a fun non-Korean journey! You can read the rest of her review here. Have a wonderful week, Twinkles~!
Sorry that I haven’t been blogging much recently, but I just couldn’t resist sharing this teaser of Hwarang with you. Oh. My. Goodness! Talk about eye candy galore! 😉 Continue reading Hwarang: Teaser #1
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! 😉
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.
You’ll have to excuse me this week as I deviate from my weekly “Eye Candy” post of Baek Jin Hee and Park Seo Joon, but I think you’ll grant me this leeway once I explain why. 🙂
In honor of our original Eye Candy’s upcoming birthday–Yes, So Ji Sub is turning a glorious 3-9 this November 4th!–I thought it only appropriate that he be given some screen time with our Ms. Eye Candy 2016. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to post a celebratory blog post on the 4th. 😉 However, if I don’t, then consider this my annual nod to our original Eye Candy. 🙂
On that note, I hope you’re all ready to tackle another week! 🙂 Here’s to a fabulous week then, Twinkles! *pumps fist*
Annyeong, chingudeul! I’m shl, from Singapore. My daughter, Tabitha (‘Tabs’ for short) and I took a short trip to Seoul in October this year to celebrate the end of her Primary 6 examinations (these are a very BIG DEAL in Singapore), and Snoopy’s Twinkie has kindly invited me to share our experiences on her blog! Continue reading Romps in Korea: Travels of Our shl and Tabs!
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….
Starring: Ito Hideaki as Komachi Shoukichi, Takei Emias Akita Nanao, Yamashita Tomohisa as Mutou Jin, Yamada Takayuki as Hiruma Ichirou, Oguri Shun as Honda Kou, Kosugi Kein as God Lee, and Kikuchi Rinko as Moriki Asuka

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
Happy Sunday, Twinkles~! I trust that you’ve all been well and staying bright and cheery as our weather turns colder! 🙂
My apologies for the delay on oh-so-many blog posts, but I’ve been battling an unending war–yes! a war–with my health these past few weeks, and blogging has had to take a backseat to everything else that must be done before I can play in Kdramaland. *sigh* Yes, I’m referring to those dreaded Real Life duties that keep me preoccupied with deadlines and more deadlines. Phooey!
Hmmm…I suppose since I haven’t articulated my queue of blog posts, you really have no idea just how far behind I am, huh? LOL. I guess that’s a good thing. 😉
In any case, I hope our dear eye candies bring a smile to your face as you gear up for another work/study week! I’m going to try my best to catch up on my intended blog posts, but I can’t make any firm promises since…I’m a turtle at my very core.
*sigh* Seriously, I am such a little turtle sometimes. *inches ever so slowly through her list of deadlines*
May you all be faster turtles than I in your respective lives, my dear Twinkles~! Here’s to another glorious week! *hugs*
