Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

GFB 13

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….

Anyhow, without further ado, let’s take a look at the post for Episode 1!  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: Gu Family Book (2013)

It’s certainly been a memorable walk down memory lane this year. I hope you feel the same way!

K2H 11

Team Korea proves in this episode that team work and an unwavering faith in each other can cover a multitude of disadvantages. This was definitely one of my favorite episodes…hmmm…Actually, I can’t really pinpoint a favorite episode to save my life since I loved almost all of them. However, if pressed to explain why this particular episode was a favorite, I’d probably have to say because it not only gives us a celebration of Team Korea’s WOC win but also Jae Ha and Hang Ah’s win. 🙂

Shall we plunge into the recap…? You can take a look at the original post and comments here. Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: The King 2 Hearts – Episode 15

Now, please keep in mind that I got swamped with Real Life between episodes 8-13 back in 2012, so we’ll be picking up from Episode 14. *hangs head* I know…some of you were looking forward to reliving some of the awesome moments from those episodes…like Jae Ha’s abduction and subsequent proposal to Hang Ah. 🙁

Walk down Memory Lane: The King 2 Hearts – Episode 1

K2H 1

Hello, Twinkles! It’s that time of year again when you and I “walk down memory lane” to one of our previous K-drama loves, and this year, I’ve settled on revisiting The King 2 Hearts, starring Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won.

If you’re new to the Musings community, then this will be your first trip down our memory lane. We’ve only done three of them thus far. We started in 2012 with Sungkyunkwan Scandal, continued in 2013 with A Thousand Kisses, and ended last year’s in 2014 with High Kick 3. Since K2H holds a very special place in my heart, I thought that I should showcase this in celebration of our fifth year together. 😉

Without further ado then, I give you the first of 2015’s “Walk down Memory Lane.” Enjoy!  Continue reading Walk down Memory Lane: The King 2 Hearts – Episode 1

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.
