Friday Fun: Ra. D (라디) – “Thank You” (고마워 고마워)

FF 12-18-15

Happy Friday, Twinkles! I’m “officially” back! Needless to say, I’m ecstatic to be able to romp in my happy place again with you all…and without deadlines looming before me! 🙂

With only one more Friday left of 2015–and that’s Christmas day!–I thought that I would take the time to use today’s penultimate FF post of 2015 to not only help us ease our way into another weekend, but take another stroll down memory lane via this music video as we reflect on some of our own past relationships of this year…and say “Thank you.”

Splish Splash Love (2015): 퐁당퐁당 LOVE Teasers

SSL 1

MBC has done it again! It’s luring me into a state of must-find-and-watch anticipation with yet another fun little drama starring none other than my beloved little eye candy, Kim Seul Gi.

Set to broadcast this December 13, 2015, Kim Seul Gi will pair up with Yoon Doo Joon in what looks to be an absolutely adorable 2-episode short drama about a couple who transcends the limits of time to meet and fall in love with each other.

*happy sigh* I now have another reason to look forward to the end of my fall term! 🙂

I loved Kim Seul Gi in The Diary of a Resentful Woman (view post here) as Kong Ji and the short little snippets of her new character in the following teasers do their job in whetting my appetite for more glimpses of her in her latest role. I suspect that I’ll be fangirling about this show just as soon as it airs and I can locate a video of it. 😛

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the teasers! Be forewarned, though: You’re going to want MORE once you finish. 😉 Continue reading Splish Splash Love (2015): 퐁당퐁당 LOVE Teasers

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Sunday or at least what is left of it since I’m posting this later than usual! 😀 For those of you in the U.S.–or any other part of the world that shifted into daylight savings time today–I hope you enjoyed an extra hour of sleep as we “fell” back an hour in anticipation of the shorter daylight time. 🙂

With only two months left of 2015–seriously?!?–I’m changing up the contents of the bulletin board. Hopefully, you won’t mind the changes. 😉

Shall we get started on the announcements? 😉

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Sunday! 😀

As long as last week’s bulletin board post was, this week’s post is going to be just as unexpectedly…short. Surprised? lol Let’s just say that I’ve been publishing more posts this past week than before, so I thought that I’d give you all a chance to check out the previous week’s postings and not be deluged with another long list of announcements today.

Hmmm…or it could just be that my little brain is tired from thinking, teaching, and grading. lol. In any case, shall we get started on the announcements? 😉

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I hope you’re all doing well this glorious and beautiful Sunday! 😉

The season of massive paper grading and midterm grading has once again descended upon me, but despite this crunch for time, I’m going to try to keep to my usual blog schedule. 🙂 So…without further ado, let’s get to the announcements!

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! 😉 This week was a bit hectic, huh? Especially when the blog went offline due to some technical difficulties. 🙁

Despite the unexpected disturbance to our blog romping in Kdramaland, there was plenty of enticing dramas to keep us entertained, wasn’t there? 😉 Without further ado, let’s get to the announcements!

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! 😉

I hope you enjoyed your weekend, or enjoy what’s left of it. 🙂 I’ve got about 1 more hour left of Sunday here on the Pacific Coast as I type this post before the day draws to an end. Thankfully, I’m still able to make my “Sunday” deadline for this bulletin board post. 🙂

This week is relatively light on “new” announcements, but I think that’s understandable considering how the studios are already running full-blast on some very entertaining dramas. Ha~! If only we had enough time to watch them all and still attend to Real Life duties, huh?

Without further ado, let’s get to the announcements!

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! 😉

As some of you have already mentioned to me, there are just too many K-dramas out there right now that are piquing our interests that it’s been difficult trying to make time for all of them. Ack~! I feel as though my attention is being split in I don’t know how many directions. 😛

My solution? Watch what I can via YouTube video clips…and in non-chronological order. 🙂 *anticipates gasps of shock and dismay* I know…I have odd viewing habits, especially when I’m pressed for time. 😉

In any case, shall we take a look at a few more dramas that are about to join the ever-growing melee of must-see K-dramas–old and new–that are fighting for our time? 🙂 Continue reading Bulletin Board: September 13, 2015

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I know that I’m late with this week’s announcements, but unfortunately, I didn’t get around to writing the post before I left for a camping this past weekend, so…I’m now writing the post after my exhausting but fun-filled camping trip with my church peeps. *abashed* It’s still Sunday, though, so better late than never, right? 😉

I hope you’re excited about the month of August because two of my favorite actors–and probably yours!–are about to return to the small screen. Intrigued? Without further ado, let’s take a look at the announcements I have for you this week!

Happy Sunday, Twinkles! I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack~! *dances Happy Snoopy dance* Did ya miss me? 😉

Needless to say, I totally missed you guys! It’s kind of weird, though. After not writing anything for almost an entire month, typing this post tonight makes me feel a bit…odd. I just can’t explain it other than that I feel rusty. LOL.

Anyhow, for those of you who’ve been keeping up with all the Kdramaland news, you probably already know just how many announcements I have to share…However, in consideration of time, I’ll try–operative word being “try”–to keep today’s bulletin post to a reasonable length. Just keep in mind that I haven’t blogged for several weeks, so who knows just how long this post may actually be…Heh, you’ve been forewarned. 😉

Enough hemming and hawing. Let’s get started on this week’s announcements!

MBC Drama Festival: The Diary of a Resentful Woman (2014)

WN 1.1

For those of you who have never heard of MBC Drama Festival, it is a series of 10 episodes that features one-episode stories by new directors and writers, stories oftentimes considered experimental or unconventional stories. This year’s festival started back on September 4th, but I didn’t get a chance to check out the showcase of episodes until today…because one of my favorite actresses Kim Seul Gi is headlining today’s broadcast titled, The Diary of a Resentful Woman. Her smirk in the cover picture seems to say it all, doesn’t it? 😉

Happy Friday, Twinkles!

It’s time to celebrate the start of another weekend, and for this week’s selection, I thought that I’d take you on a short trip back in time to 2013 when we met our adorable couple from Flower Boy Next Door. 🙂

I hope you’re ready to relax and let the sweet sounds from our “dark-circled” songbird usher you into another well-deserved weekend! 🙂 Continue reading Friday Fun: Kim Seul Gi and Ko Kyung Pyo – “I Wake up Because of You”
