Which drama did you complete despite not really liking/enjoying it?

Today’s question came from Jules: which drama did you complete despite not really liking/enjoying it? (and why?). Quite challenging especially with me. I don’t drop many dramas and I endure it. What do you do? Do you just drop it? Or do you endure the pain like me? Let us know.

14 Days of Fangirling: Day 1

Hey, everyone! Mari, Sada and I decided to participate in Dramas With a Side of Kimchi’s fangirling challenge which started on February 20th. For Sada, she will keep it on Korean drama level. She said that if she includes Chinese and Japanese dramas, it will be too much of a hassle. I agree with her suggestion and Mari and I will keep the same format, too. Although ya’ll know you can never trust Mari… *giggles*

Even though we are 4 days behind, I have decided to blog it daily. Not that I don’t have plenty of time, but since it is a short challenge, I think I can handle the heat (and pressure)! *wink*. So, without further delay… let’s focus on day 1 challenge!

Taking A Dare! -Asian drama Style Day 1 to 5!

30 day challengeYes, I decided to take up on POPDramatic‘s 30-Day challenge. It looks fun, so why not? *wink*. And my guest bloggers, Mari and Erl, are participating, too! How awesome is that? *claps*. So check our answers out!

Day 1: Drama plotline that made you (or nearly made you) ragequit.

Me: Miss Ripley! God that show drove me batshit crazy!!! I saw three episodes and raised my white flag! Hell no. Her constant lying irritated me so much. I just can’t watch her fooling both men! Sorry, I had to hate Lee Da Hae here because of her character!

Mari: If we are going with something that made me quit recently It would have to be
She was Pretty“. The main guy treated her like trash for almost 3/4’s of the drama. He belittles her, constantly screaming and calling her names. He made her cry so many times. Yet she forgives everything because he was “traumatized” as a kid and could not recognize his first love??? also Hello!!!!!!!!!!!!! the second lead ( Siwon! I miss you!) was perfect in his weird way!! I’m still so angry as I type this!!!

Erl: My pick would be Doctor Stranger. That was a real pain to watch and honestly I still have this leftover impulse to pull my hair whenever I think about that drama. Between the repeated desperate scenes involving falling from a bridge and not dying, everything is just all over the place. And I just can’t with Jin Se-yeon, I just can’t!

Day 2: Actor(s) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.

Me: I really dislike idol turns actor. But Big Bang’ TOP shot me down really good with his acting on Tazza – Hand of God. The man is brilliant! His casual acting is unreal! He definitely can act!

Mari:let’s see… If we have to pick actual “actors” and not Idols turned actors I would have to go with So Ji-Sub in “Master’s Sun“. His previous dramas that I seen left me questioning why he was doing something he seemed so bored doing( see “What Happen in Bali” and “MiSa“) so I was surprised and enjoyed his character so much in MS. 

Erl: Hmmm, the unexpected .. Well, I think I would have to go with Seung-Ri, another Big Bang member. I didn’t expect to enjoy his acting in Angel Eyes but I really did. He really provided a comic relief in that drama and boy, am I so relieved that he did!

Day 3: Actress(es) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.


Me: Shin Se-Kyung. I really like her in Blade Man! She improves a lot! But I don’t know her performance in Six Flying Dragons… Jang NaRa is another name came to mind. She was not my favorite until School 2013. From then on, she really fly…

Mari::I have 3!!!! Shin Se-Kyung in “The girl who sees smells” Go Ara in “Reply 1994” and Lee Yeon-Hee in “Miss Korea” the last 2 were always known for being gorgeous while their acting was painful but they did a great job in those shows. For Shin Se-Kyung we discovered that she should only do comedies. 

Erl: Shin Se-Kyung!!! I was really surprised by the amount of love that I felt for her in Girl Who See Smells, it’s crazy and I’m pretty biased with actresses.

Day 4: Corny drama soundtrack that you secretly love to listen to.

Me: Guilty!!! Boys Over Flowers OST. You know the song… Almost Parrradisseeeeee! I secretly hate it yet love it. Sure, call me a hypocrite. I don’t care! Great, now I can hear the song in my head… *facepalm*

Mari: *scans her iTunes playlist* I have & still play some song from the following OSTs: Boys over Flowers, You’re Beautiful, Heartstrings, To The beautiful You & Master’s Sun

Erl: Okay, I guess I have to come clean. I really, really love to listen to the Heirs OST and whenever a friend I’m talking to says the word “moment” I always go.. ooh, ooh, ohh, love is the mommeeeent… And yeah, I leave them speechless.

Day 5: Guilty pleasure drama that you love to watch, even though you know it’s flawed.

Me: Playful Kiss! The Korean version, of course! Please, do not remind me of KHJ’s choppy and woody acting! And don’t remind me of his stupid scandal! *rolls eyes* But I love watching it mainly for Oh Ha Ni! She reminds me of… ME!!!

Mari:You’re Beautiful“, “Heartstrings” and “To the beautiful You” I know they are terrible but they always make me smile 

Erl: I would have to go with You’re Beautiful and To the Beautiful You. I know, it’s flawed, completely flawed but it’s sinfully cheesy and delicious.




Breaking News: A Slice of Heaven Coming To You!

resize_Park-Hyung-SikI’m not so much of a ZE:A fans even though I have heard their songs but today, especially today, I want you to focus on one particular member of the group. Park Hyung Sik or famously known as ZE:A Hyung Sik. I first get to know him as an actor. Nine: Nine Times Time Travel introduced me to him. He looks super innocent in there and acted really well. I was impressed but his role on The Heirs was just okay. But all along, I was never exposed to him as a singer. I have never heard him singing before. Today is an opening eyes and ears. This teaser is spanking awesome! He sounded so sweet and humble and his vocal is ahhmazing. He reminded me of SuJu Kyuhyun for some reason. It’s hard to evaluate the music but it sounded so romantic… The video itself looks very romantic. Every single thing he does… From caring the tray with that goodness chocolate sprinkle on top of the toast *slurps* to pouring water to him holding that flower… Every bit of it screams romance. But the song can also shed tears… I don’t know, I need to read the lyrics to understand the feeling.

Tell me what you think after hearing it… I’m actually excited for this ballad. The release date for One Day, Somewhere Anywhere is March 11. Stay tune!

Stalking: Kim Woo Bin


Dude! It’s Woobie! It’s kfangirl’s boy! Who cares he’s taken? In my dictionary, he is always available for his fans 24/7. ALWAYS! *fingers heart* This model-turned-actor is simply irresistible. I first get to know him through To The Beautiful You as one super smooth and cool oppa. I found him so desirable and hhhhhhhunky handsome! My gosh, it was love at first sight! Ever since then, I tried following closely to his career more and more… Did I sound stalkerish? Nawwwwww *sticks tongue out* I’ve seen almost all of his dramas except Vampire Idol and movies Cupid Factory and soon-to-be-released Friend 2. I’m not a big movie fan so most probably I won’t be seeing them but who knows… I’m feeling naughty lately *wink*.

When I was “researching” Woobie earlier, I found out that his real name is Kim Hyun Joong (or Kim Hyeon Jung). But because his name sounded closely to SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Hyung Joon, he changed to stage name Kim Woo Bin in 2011. Well, frankly *wraps arms* Woo Bin sounds fitting to his look and personality.  And gwah, look what I found? Irresistable wake up call clips by mister eyebrow! Now, I don’t know about you but to wake up to these three hilarious yet playful vid clips by the man of the year is so heavenly… Would you wake up? Five minutes, honey… 😉
