Monday Fuzzies and Funnies: 1 Night/ 2 Days – Episode 603

1N2D 603.1

As we begin the week, I thought that I’d try out a new little corner to help us through the Monday blahs and call it “Fuzzies and Funnies.” 🙂

It’s scenes like this one that often remind me that our beloved and sometimes not-so-beloved celebrities are part of a family, susceptible to all the human emotions that we feel (probably more so given the level of scrutiny focused on their lives). This is one of the reasons why I try to refrain from personally criticizing people I don’t know–they are someone’s son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, etc. I guess you can call it my small effort to give them some privacy in an otherwise public life. *sheepish grin*

So for today’s first “Fuzzies and Funnies,” I bring to you two clips that are designed to warm our hearts and tickle our bellies. Our beloved Yoon Shi Yoon gets to visit his maternal grandparents and share some heartwarming moments with us. You ready to enjoy a few minutes of beautiful fuzzies and belly-clutching funnies? 😉  Continue reading Monday Fuzzies and Funnies: 1 Night/ 2 Days – Episode 603

2 Days and 1 Night: Endorphin Injection!


Whether you know this long-running variety show as 2 Days and 1 Night or 1 Night and 2 Days, the title matters little in comparison to the hilarious content that gets broadcast each weekend. And oh my is this featured game hilarious!

Seriously, I haven’t laughed this hard in quite some time, and as we hurdle through the mid-week hump today, I thought that this challenge that the men of 2D1N have to complete would be the perfect thing to give us that extra boost of endorphin (aka laughter) to get us through the rest of the week…and I don’t think you need to have English subtitles for this. After all, laughter and silliness are universal! Continue reading 2 Days and 1 Night: Endorphin Injection!

Friday Fun: HongCha (홍차) – “Cheer Up” (힘내쏭)

FF 07-01-16 1

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! I’m back and so is our Friday Fun corner to help us usher in the new weekend!

In addition, it’s the first weekend of a new month! And July at that! Woohoo~! *blows noisemaker in celebration*

Why is this month so special, you ask? Well…it is the birth month of yours truly and my dear co-blogger, NewKDramaAddict! 🙂

Now, as you know, Real Life has been a bit crazy for many of us, so for today’s selection, I thought that you’d all enjoy a unique collaboration between Cha Tae Hyun (차태현), one of my favorite K-drama stars, and his buddy veteran K-singer Hong Kyung Min (홍경민).

Very much like Hong Jin Young’s “Thumb Up” (see blog post here), “Cheer Up” is a song that reminds us that life, despite how discouraging it can be, is worth living and celebrating because we are not alone; it is made infinitely bearable and better by the support group(s) around us.

Shall we take a listen and recharge from the week for the upcoming week? 😉

2 Days & 1 Night: Season 3 – “Struggling Friend, Part II”


A couple weeks again, we were pleasantly surprised to see Jo In Sung–along with a number of other celebrity guests–make an appearance on 2 Days & 1 Night. We resume their adventure in this post as the men split up into the usual two teams to compete for what else…food!

You can catch the subtitled episode below.  Continue reading 2 Days & 1 Night: Season 3 – “Struggling Friend, Part II”

2 Days & 1 Night: Season 3 – “Struggling Friend, Part I”

2D1N 1

I don’t know how many of you follow the recast series 2 Days & 1 Night, but I took a quick peek at it today on the suggestion of one of my church minions and was pleasantly surprised by how much this show has changed (and survived) since the days of Kang Ho Dong and Lee Seung Gi

If you’re in the mood for a fun little variety show that demands incredibly ridiculous and difficult tasks from its members, this may be just the variety show for you! And today’s episode…let’s just say that I was quite thrilled to see just how sweet one of my favorite actors Jo In Sung continues to be in his relationships with his sunbaes like Cha Tae Hyun.
