Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! Are you excited today? If not, I think you will be when you read that the newest JTBC series Strong Woman Do Bong Soon aired its first highly-awaited episode today and released the first song of its OST.

Are you excited now? 😉

Without further ado, let’s take a listen and more importantly, a closer look at the series that may just put the cable station JTBC on a whole new footing with us Kdrama fans. If nothing else, it’s promising to provide us with a super adorable couple who will probably make our hearts pitter-patter with glee each Friday and Saturday for the next few months. 🙂 Yup, I’m talking about Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik! 🙂  Continue reading Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)

Friday Fun: Park Hyung Sik (박형식)- “I’ll be Here” (여기 있을게) from Hwarang (화랑) OST

Happy Friday, my dear Twinkles~! I hope you’re all staying healthy and warm this last Friday of January 2017! 🙂

Today’s “Friday Fun” comes to us from Park Hyung Sik, one of the few idols I have seen who can act, and I mean really act! If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was strictly an actor and not an experience idol member of the group ZE:A. Needless to say, I’ve been quite smitten with him since I first saw him as the rascally Jo Myung Soo in Heirs and warm-hearted Cha Dal Bong in What Happens to My Family? 

I think you’ll agree with me when I say that he’s not only a prime example of Kdrama Eye Candy but also a soothing dose of Kpop Ear Candy! Who better than Park Hyung Sik then to help us usher in another weekend? 😉  Continue reading Friday Fun: Park Hyung Sik (박형식)- “I’ll be Here” (여기 있을게) from Hwarang (화랑) OST

Friday Fun: Park Bo Young – “Leave” (떠난다)

FF 07-31-15 2

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! It’s been a good two months since I last wrote a “Friday Fun” post, huh? But with my summer term almost over, I’m now ready to resume blogging duties. 🙂

I know that my FF posts usually feature upbeat songs, but today, I thought that I would introduce you to the newly released song from the Oh My Ghost OST in commemoration of some goodbyes that I had to say yesterday.

You see, for the past eight years, I’d been teaching at a second college as an adjunct faculty member. During that time, I had made some unforgettable memories, forging meaningful relationships and honing my craft as a teacher. But more than anything else, I’d come to love the college that had provided me with so many opportunities…and now as I prepare to settle down permanently as a full-time, tenure-track faculty member at my first college, I thought it only fitting that I say a final farewell to my time at this college, one that has certainly meant a great deal to me.

For those of you in similar situations of transitioning into a new phase of your life, or perhaps you’ve already done so and would like to simply reminisce about the past, I hope that this soothing song of memories and leaving–sung by none of that Park Bo Young–will help you not only ease into another weekend but remind you of the good memories and provide you with hope for what is to come.

Bulletin

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!
