Anyong Yarobun!

Allow me to begin my entry with the iconic sound-effect from Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo:

what

Say it ain’t so! Andwae!!

One of my favourite shipped-to-life couples, Nam Joo Hyuk & Lee Sung Kyung, have parted ways. I was just re-watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo this past week, inhaling the love and re-living those moments when they indeed fell in love with each other. Of course they inserted that standard template of an excuse for the falling out, but they are young, and have so much more to experience too.

Still…

JiJi couple, you’re my only hope (at the moment) for yet another reel to real-ship.

Maybe I should re-watch a classic like Coffee Prince or Secret Affair, because there’s no way in heck those OTPs are gonna get on board the cruise line 😆

Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! 😄

BLURB: Suspicious Partner/ Love in Trouble

This is not a recap, nor is it a first impression of the drama.
Suspicious Partner had a momentous run and by the end of its air-time lifespan, fans around the world began shipping the OTP, willing them into the next real-life couple.

But talk about leaving a Lasting Impression… Oh. My. Lawd.

Open those windows and wipe your flushed face down with a cold towel

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

I just HAD to say something about this little dynamo that can hold its own against The Legend of the Blue Sea.

While many viewers were anticipating the premiere of Lee Min Ho’s latest drama, a few of us tuned in to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo mostly out of curiosity. Well, maybe not so for Nam Joo Hyuk’s die-hard fans, but we’re talking about David & Goliath proportions when these two dramas were pitted against each other in the Wed-Thurs prime time slot.

As I watched Lee Sung Kyung’s character transformation (from Bee-yotch Doctor in Doctors to No-nonsense Athlete in WFKBJ) in Episode 1, I had a feeling this could be her defining moment as an actor.

Anyong Yarobun!

This has been one of those “Catch-Up” Weekends for me, drama-wise. Come Monday, my brain will switch gears to “where did all that time go?”

XD XD

When realization hit on Saturday morning that I had Mirror of the Witch, 38 Task Force, The Flower in the prison, Beautiful Gong Shim to sink my mental teeth into just for the weekend, I felt a sudden tide of bliss. YAASSSS!!

Weekdays are meant for Doctors, Beautiful Mind (an under-rated drama, IMHO), Lucky Romance and Uncontrollably Fond. I know. Squeezing in KDrama during weekdays in between Real-life tasks is an art form ^_^

However, there is one newbie who flew in under the radar and has all the interstellar potential to knock a few Home Runs during its run: The Good Wife.

And no site (that I know of) is SUBBING this Gem 😦

Unless you know of a site that does English-subbing regardless of on-air grabbage factor.
Let me know, STAT! ❤

In the meantime, this is me waddling through my limited understanding of Hangeul while watching The Good Wife:

Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! 😀

 

Breaking News:
KDrama Gods have answered my prayers!
The Good Wife has been subbed! YAAAASSSS!!! XD

Anyong Yarobun!

Just so I do not have guilt-trips come weekends, there are a few things I’ve got to get done before KDrama Mega-Catch Up like:

Laundry. Driving kids to classes (yes, on a Saturday o_O ). Folding clothes that were left on the dining table because everyone waits for Momma to do so.

Then, I get to make myself a cuppa, settle down in my viewing spot and inhale the goodies that will pretty much take me to dinner time 😀 😀

There was a KDrama draught for me a few months back, but now (even before Uncontrollably Fond premieres) it’s like torrential rain. And I mean torrential to the power of Mangled Apricot Hellbeast level of downpour.

Okay, Descendants of the Son was the exception. One episode in and my reaction was “Hell no. When did Joon Ki become such a Namja?” As in Alpha-Namja? Swoon.

Someone needs to create a time-travel mechanism so that we can still contribute to society while living in a parallel universe (applicable only to hardcore KDrama viewers) o_O

What’s the torrential list I have come weekends, you may ask?

Mirror of the Witch (Fri & Sat)

38 Task Force (Fri & Sat)

Flower in the Prison (Sat & Sun)

Beautiful Gong Shim (Sat & Sun)

 

Doctors (Mon & Tues)

Lucky Romance (Wed & Thurs)

And then the cycle begins again…
See the deluge? o_O

 

Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! 😀
