Friday Fun: AKMU – “Re-Bye” and Detective Hong Gil Dong (aka Phantom Detective)

FF 05-13-16

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

If you read last week’s “Friday Fun” post and saw my AKMU‘s “How People Move” post, then you probably suspected this week’s selection. Heh…I am, if nothing else, quite predictable. 😉

Our quirky and dynamic sibling duo is back with their sophomore album, and “Re-Bye,” released simultaneously with “How People Move,” is another nod to previous works, this time alluding to the the classic whodunit mysteries of the 1940s.

You ready to see Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Su Hyun transform themselves into perspicacious gumshoes who match their wits against a heartless villain in time to prevent a murder? 😉  Continue reading Friday Fun: AKMU – “Re-Bye” and Detective Hong Gil Dong (aka Phantom Detective)

You’re All Surrounded: What Were Your Thoughts on the Series??

Finale-cap: What can I say? Absolutely nothing! I am posting this because I feel so guilty that we came so close to finishing the recaps on this series but unfortunately either it was us or the drama that totally fizzled in our minds that we just…couldn’t…do…it.

You’re All Surrounded – Episode 13


Ahh, what is this…all in the family, Korean style? Okay, that’s my prediction but not all is clear as of yet. Interesting episode with more on the love front and more mysteries to be revealed. Sorry for the lateness. My next recap will be much sooner but I am determined to finish this series; kicking and screaming. Let’s get started…  Continue reading You’re All Surrounded – Episode 13

Wow! You are actually going to get this early for once! Saturday, I’m heading to the Green Festival in downtown Washington, DC for the day. Looking forward to the festival, but not the drive to get there. Anyone who knows me, I complain profusely about the traffic in this area but it should be fun otherwise!

Reveals! Reveals! Secrets! Secrets! And looks like someone can’t forget that drive-by kiss! Not a lot going on in this episode but more development for the stories ahead. Let’s get started… (And I like the new 15 logo! Don’t ask me why!)

These are the top stories for this episode. Let’s get started…

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 4

YAAS.42014-05-18-21h34m21s23

Aww! Yeah! I picked up the right episode to recap! Episode 3 frustrated me to no end, but this one was so sweet and awesome! Soo-Sun shows that even if her actions don’t always lead to the greatest results, she always pour her heart in all the things she does. Dae-Gu learns to accept his mistake and works as a team, while Pan-Seok slowly starts to warm up to his bunch of little ducklings.

My first question for this episode: How in the world did Eo Soo Sun become a cop again? I must rewind for that explanation again! Another revelation (for me), the music producer for the background soundtrack definitely duplicated the beat from Lonnie Liston Smith’s Expansions (you youngsters don’t know nothing about that)!
