Blurb: She Was Pretty Ep 14 – Heart Slayer

SWP_backhug

Didn’t I just mention how Kim Shin Hyuk slayed me thus far in She Was Pretty?

Didn’t I just mention how AWESOME-sauce Choi Si Won has been as Kim Shin Hyuk in this drama?

SO HOW IS IT POSSIBLE HE SLAYED ME AGAIN IN EPISODE 14?! o_O

Not gonna talk about the meandering story about “Will We or Won’t We” sink plot line in Episode 14. In fact 95% of this episode was stretching The Most about doing all they can for the magazine. But, in the last 10 minutes of the 4th Quarter, my jaw slackened at how A-may-zing Kim Shin Hyuk is.

Sorta Spoiler Alert!!

He sneaks Hye Jin out for a date in one of the most unassuming ways I’ve seen (even in real life!) and she ends up spending the entire day out with him having a great meal and acting like kids at the Theme Park. He was, in his way, creating memories with her and filing them away as one of those moments in time when he fell in love and had to let go.

Of course he HAD to re-enact their signature radish scene, but this time, in a posh hotel setting…

BLURB: She Was Pretty

SWP_MainPost2

Two weekends ago, I surprised myself for carving out time to browse through currently on-air KDramas… just to get a feel on what’s going on. Y’know what I mean?

I’ve really been out of the KDrama Universe, but I knew my Sweet Cheeks, Yoo Ah In, is in SBS’ Six Flying Dragons and Lee Dong Wook will dive into a romantic comedy with Jung Ryeo Won in Bubblegum (which I shall also check out later 🙂 )

So, with zero expectations, I began Episode 1 of She Was Pretty on Friday night, 8:30pm… and by Saturday noon, I couldn’t wait for the upcoming episode of this drama. Much thanks to the Meteorically Improved Choi Si Won o_O

Who would’ve thought he could metamorphosize the 2nd Male Lead character into the unofficial MALE LEAD for this drama?!  In fact, I was ROOTING for him to be with Hye Jin instead of Sung Joon!!

What blasphemy!!  😮

First Impression: Orange Marmalade

As Unkind Women bows out, another (well, a handful) comes into my viewing line up.

I haven’t had the chance to really identify the ones I want to follow, but had an inkling that the high-school/ vampire/ romance Orange Marmalade would likely fall under “easy to watch,” hence it wouldn’t be so taxing to do a recap (which I’m still mulling over).

Orange_Marm_Main01Premiered on May 15th with 2 episodes shown back-to-back on KBS2, I had to keep myself busy while waiting for the subs to kick in. It is mandatory that I totally immerse myself in the Twilight-like Korean Drama XD

The premise is rather to the point: 200 years ago, humans and vampires finalized a peace treaty, but till this day, both parties do not get along well with each other. Heck. Humans still can’t along with each other o_O

Fast forward to 2015, the story begins with the introduction of Baek MaRi (SeolHyun) riding the subway to school, Jung Jae-Min (Yeo Jin-Goo) who is a popular high school student also happens to be on the same train.

We are well-versed with the eventual pull Jae Min will experience with MaRi because she is a vampire and vamps have that I-can’t-help-but-magnetize-anyone powers 😀 .

However, MaRi tries very hard to fit in and does her very best to hide her real self.

First episode in, Jae Min has been TKO-ed by cupid…

Drop That Beat: Sung Hoon (of Brown Eyed Soul) – I Love You

What a way to ease into the weekend 🙂

The person featured in this video is Kim Seol Jin, a stupendous Modern dancer who has had massive dancing experience in Europe. My introduction to his wonderful display of talent and skills was via Dancing 9, a dance survival program on Mnet.

Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! XD
