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.

PicMonkey Collage

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.

shinsekyung_4

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.

PicMonkey Collage

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.

PicMonkey Collage

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.

Just Watched: Northern Line Limit, The Throne and The Classified File

You know I’m on work travel when all you see on today’s post are movies! Yeap, I was forced to watch them in order to stay awake on my flight. I kind of glad I did because the movies were wonderful. I even shed my precious tears!!!! So here are my quick two cents on the movies:

Northern Line Limit

northern-limit-line

Bel had asked me to watch this movie before. I should have listened to her sooner. It’s a military movie! Anything military genre like, I’m in! (don’t remind me of DotS, okay?) Plus, Kim Moo Yeol and Jin Goo are in it. Based on true story, this movie was about the navy clash between the North and South Korea. Obviously, it was told from the South Korean side. The story mainly focused on the lives of the South Korean soldiers and how they fought against the sneaky North Korean. I cried at the end of the movie. It’s a war movie so death was inevitable but I loved how the movie portrayed the courage and high-spirited soldiers. They were so young and naive. Battle of Yeonpyeong was their first true battle and left a deep scar not only to them, but to the country. Overall, I enjoyed it. It was just a steady pace in the beginning but it picked up towards the end. If you love anything military-like movie, you would want to watch it. I wished I saw it with someone… I had so many questions. Well, I have summoned my husband and good friend to watch it so we can discuss the NK tactics *wink*.

The Throne

jLl667j4_203b84_f

This movie can be a little bit frustrating. The back and forth flashback annoyed me in the beginning and I was able to feel comfortable with it 30 minutes into it. The Throne was great. The King was painful to watch and so did the Crown Prince. The King expected a lot from the Crown Prince to take the thrown. But he was disappointed that his son was more into arts than governing the country. The Crown Prince blamed the King for not giving him the fatherly love he deserved. Basically, the movie lingers around father and son relationship. The Crown Prince was mad that his father did not celebrate his mom’s 60th birthday and threatened to kill him. The King charged his son for treason and asked him take his life. Well, the Crown Prince did not but he ended up dead anyway. The King killed his own son. How? You just have to watch it. This is a really good movie of how a son tried so hard to please his father and a father showed too much of his disappointment of his son to members of the palace. The struggle was hard to watch but I really thought it was acted well by Song Kang Ho and Yoo Ah In. Bravo! *claps*

The Classified File

b1zwQ0xL_d50e76_f

I hesitated to watch this movie. The synopsis was not interesting at all. I mean a fortune teller and a detective joint forces to find a missing girl? First of all, how could they possibly solve a kidnapping case? I did not start this movie until my last leg of flight. *giggle* I was running out of movie to watch! But, by the end of this movie, I was beating myself for not starting it sooner! Another true story that you must not miss! The detective really did not believe the fortune teller (I didn’t either) but by the end of this movie, he was impressed by how much the fortune teller’s reading and speculation has helped him with the case. They solved the missing case and worked together few years later again to solve another missing case with the same girl! This movie also showed that the police force in SK is truly corrupt. Well, as if we don’t know already, right? Anyway, this movie left me in tears. What is up with me and crying on the plane? *shakes head* You have to watch this movie. The detective and fortune teller were brilliant. They remain true friends until today. It’s a good hearty movie and seeing how dedicated they were to their work and families were truly admiring and rewarding. It gives a great sense that as long as you do your part, you will soon be recognized.

 

Currently Watching: Oh My Venus

photo653268

I felt pressured when so many people are watching Oh My Venus and I was not. I really wanna be in the crowd. I wanted the attention too *giggles*. Plus, the anticipated pairing of Shin Min Ah with So Ji Sub is something that no one should missed. But I think it got a bit out of hands. I’m surprised that there are some that are not a fan of this pairing. Some finds Shin Min Ah boring. *hands on cheeks* Oh my God, really? I never thought I would hear this. Min Ah boring? Wow, I did not see that coming! And then I met a few that flat out told me that they don’t find gangsta oppa Ji Sub attractive. Whoa whoa, say that again? That is so not ganji, people! Really? Sure, oppa can be a bit….. older but to find him unattractive? Hmmmm…. *rubs chin*x6hxqRBOh_My_Venus-SJSBut, but… if you don’t like them, there are SuJu’s adorableness Henry who constantly referring Min Ah’s character Kang Joo Eun as ma’am (now I really want a cute adorableness to follow me around and call me ma’am too!) and hunky Noble, My Love Sung Hoon *bats lashes*. Yoo In Young is back as well though I never like in any of her so called “villain” characters. I don’t get why she’s drawn to such foolish and weak second lead. And of course, Jung Gyu Woon is back. I think the show has solid cast but all depends on the presentation and story plots, right? RIGHT!so-ji-sub-super-junior-ms-henry-and-sung-joon-prepare-to-train-shin-min-ah-in-oh-my-venusWhen I started Oh My Venus, I thought to myself, what is this? Why am I not drawn to it one bit? If not because of Henry’s ma’am here and ma’am there, I think I would have quit this show. Jjinja, I was not hooked. Even until now, I’m not so into it. I’m fed up with the OTP playing rookie in love for the past 10 years… I mean 10 episodes. Seriously, the writer should know better. These actors are not in their cute teens anymore, so to act cheesy cute at this age can be awkward. Thankfully these two are darling to me so I found them terribly attractive. But at some point though, enough is enough. “Your body is mine” can be translated into numerous meanings in your head, depending on the time of day or month!CVWtJocU8AAoA-Ofullsizephoto653262

Do I sound harsh? I guess I am because I’m a bit disappointed with the ruckus the writer is throwing at us. We have been waiting for the OTP to be on the same screen for gazillion years and what we got? Blahhhhh. Don’t get me wrong, we got great chemistry with the OTP and the men! I’m just… I should shut up before someone smack me in the face. But anyway, what Oh My Venus is all about? So we got So Ji Sub as Kim Yeong Ho or aka John Kim. He lives in the US,  *rolls eyes* and a well-known Hollywood trainer. He and his minions escaped the US one day due to a cruel rumor that he was dating a famous actress. On his way back to Seoul, he met Kang Joo Eun in an awful situation. Kang Joo Eun happened to be in the US on her work assignment. One her way home, she took a strong alcohol with medicine and she suffered a massive illness that made her suffered a massive chest attack. So who came to rescue our damsel in distress? None other than our knight in shining armor! *giggle*8672f53dd858c15b23f9dccb5a3c94a4Kang Joo Eun is in an off-and-on relationship with Im Woo Sik. Joo Eun has put on weight since they started and now in dire need of losing those weight. Woo Sik officially and finally left her for Soo Jin, a once overweight gal she’s now super slender and thin, and also Joo Eun’s new boss. So you can imagine how much her ego is hurting! Just coincidentally, she keeps bumping to John Kim. She doesn’t know his identity and nor him to her. But one day she found his card and thought Ji Woong is John Kim. She went to his place and beg him to help her lose her weight. To revenge against Woo Sik, of course! But what she ended finding was Yeong Ho is the real John Kim!12232832_1668178280096346_8573876116105751732_oThe encounter between the two are funny and he had helped her big time. Along with getting her on a diet, they both developed a healthy relationship as well. But… BUT there is a catch! Yeong Ho never disclosed to Joo Eun his real identity and when she found out, she immediately feel that she is not his match. The money gap is too big and Joo Eun knows her place well. shin-min-ah-and-so-ji-sub-become-unlikely-fitness-partners-in-oh-my-venusHow would Oh My Venus ends? I just started episode 11 and 5 episodes away to the ending. Would these two able to go through their differences in health, wealth and status gap and survive their relationship? I think they will, don’t you think? I can’t wait to see the ending but I really hope that the writer will stop toying with us and treat us with dignity. I would watch Oh My Venus as my fluffy filler drama or marathon it on my day off. It is painful to watch it live. I feel that my time is wasted. Sorry chingu, I blame the writer *shrugs*Oh My Venus

ADGirl

I know you both are probably in bed; I am going to watch it now.

I cannot tell you how much fun it was to watch a couple of episodes with my daughter of Just You. Her commentary made it even funnier. I was glad to laugh hard. She wants me to wait and watch more with her. I will watch ahead and watch with her. OK off to watch the Final episode.

ADGirl

While I am commercial of the wake up time…. YAHFREAKINHOO! What a great beginning. I laughed so hard at “What are you now? A Dog? A ……” “Meow” “Meow”

ADGirl

One of the funniest sisters’s ending so far! All the ghosts, to how Meow admitted she missed King. King saying “Keep trying hard to seduce me.” Hwaiting! And then shivers. Swoon thud

ADGirl

AWE Cruella and ROcky how sweet.Sister and Cheap mouth…That’s it King get into her life every way you can. We are routing for you.Yay, the Aunt is pregnant. So happy! Well not so happy now. Poor woman cannot carry babies. No wonder why she loves King so much like her own.That just makes me want to take all the bad things back that I said about her.She only wants the best for King and for him to be happy.

ADGirl

Cannot take the smile off my face. Her call and invitation. Him talking to the dead french lady LMAO

ADGirl

Love Love Love it!!!!!!!!!!!! SSSSQQQQUUUUEEEE! It is almost 2 AM and I just finished. I hated the commercials by the end they started coming about every 3 minutes for about 1:30 min… Drove me insane. So I will give a better comment write up tomorrow when my brain can function.

ADGirl

For now off to bed and dreaming of our beloved couple.

Currently Watching: One Sunny Day

onesu

I have to be quick. This is a 10-episode, 12 minute average per episode drama produced by LINE. I just started and I’m already in the first 5 minutes of episode 1. I don’t know how fast can I type and I’m already feeling out of breath. I love marathoning a drama but this one will exhausts me. And guess what? I’m on episode 2 already! *screams* Okay, here we go. This webtoon drama,  One Sunny Day, was aimed for Thai audience. Why them? I do not know but honestly, I must thank them coz this show brings together gangsta oppa aka So Ji Sub *giggles* and my lubba girl, Kim Ji Won. The story is pretty simple. Two strangers met in Jeju Island and they both were robbed overnight at their motels. They met at the police station the next morning and somehow they kept on running into each other more and more. *grins* Such a great fate, eh? The funny part is he lost everything but his cell and she lost everything but her wallet. Wow, I think God is planning something for these two! So now, they are both relying on each other… Sort of!

maxresdefault

And as you guess it, I’m on episode 3 already and it has gotten cuter and cuter! She’s intrigued by him. She keeps on looking at him from the corner of her eyes. He looks a bit wary and nervous, he  noticed her but unsure how to react to this sudden feel. I know he feels a bit uneasy with another girl around him because on the first episode, there was a flashback of him with his ex-girlfriend. Did his ex ask for a break up? I wasn’t sure and honestly I’m not interested since she is his past. But these two OTPs are looking adorable walking side by side. They are getting more curious of each other and starting to show some caring feeling as well. Hmmmm… And I’m on episode 4 now. Wahhh, time flies!

maxresdefault (1)

My favorite line so far by her: “Ommmaaaa! Eotteoke? Eotteoke? What am I supposed to do? I saw everything!” I laughed so hard at her innocent gesture! So cute! And I’m now on episode 5! Wait, episode 7 now! Kyyyyaaaaaa… Okay, let’s wrap up! Because it is a short drama, I highly recommend it. Plus, the chemistry between the two as the episode progress is growing. You can definitely feel it. The cuteness is just overloaded… I just can’t hold it any longer! One Sunny Day is a must watch, peeps! And yes, Grace, I’m gushing again! *winks* Ooooh, also, I want that umbrella!!!! Where can I get that umbrella???

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Welcome Back, Yoo Seung Ho!

Capture

I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it
I’m about to lose control and I think I like it
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it
And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know I want you, want you

– I’m So Excited by Pointer Sisters

For those who knows me really well, I have two biases! Michele called me a player! Hehehe I’m already married so I guess I deserved to be crowned a player, don’t I, Michele? Besides my 24/7/365 love for G.O, I have another love and he will be checking out of his military service in a few hours from now! Do you know who he is? Yes, he is none other than Yoo Seung Ho. Some say that he is finally out of jail bait. He recently turned legal. Well, in my dictionary, it is not legal that I care much since we are not together in real life. But to like such a younger man bothered me for awhile. I spent time convincing myself that this May-December relationship can work from far. I even confessed to Grace early this year over jimjilbang. Yeah, I was THAT open to her! I can’t help it. If I wanna do it right, I better do it right the first time.

Loi22

Seung Ho, a working child star, quietly enrolled for mandatory military service on March 5, 2013. And he is ready to check out December 4, 2014 (few hours from now). I’m very excited to hear the news and as soon as he is out, he waste no time at all. He will start shooting for a movie soon and have fan meeting in Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai. Those women are lucky to see him! My karma is just not good this year… Sigh.

iu ysh 3

Anyway, I didn’t even know he sing until I saw this vid. Sure, the boy should stick to what he does best! ACTING! He can’t sing but he sing it sweetly though. Who knows maybe one day this Little So Ji Sub may sing with hyung, So Ji Sub (or I called him gangsta oppa). That would  be awesome, right? But listen, with IU is even better too. They graduate on the same day, they are of the same age and clearly, they are good friends. They even do print ad together! Aren’t they the cutest?

IU-and-Yoo-Seung-Ho-–-G-by-Guess-Ceci-Magazine-May-Issue-’12

And here’s another clip of him singing Because I Love You in front of his Japanese fans back in 2012. He sounded so shy yet very sweet. His voice is deep but that’s not the only thing I’m gushing about… He plays piano! There is always something when a man plays a piano… Sexy!!! And just look at him! He smiles when he sings…. Everybody now say aaaaaawwwwwww…

Besides acting, Seung Ho also did special appearance on his hyung’s MV, Eraser. Isn’t it nice of him? The song is… well, it is by gangsta oppa and he sounded very gangsta to me *wink* but hey, I do like it too.

See, these two are very compatible and comfortable they even did CF together! Should we just ship these two together?

Should we ship them harder???

Have I gone too far on this post? I think I have, right? But I hate to disappoint you coz I still have plenty to show you. This is a special Wednesday for all you Yoo Seung Ho’s fans! Look at his younger time… Still good lookin’. He’s a noona killer! I don’t know how many times I have been shot to death by his looks! Be still my heart, be still…

Here’s Seung Ho at fansign. His smiles is so bright!

And of course you can’t leave without looking at his drama interview for MBC’s I Miss You. He’s simply  handsome.

Yoo Seung Ho knows how excited his fans are he even released a recent photo of him and with news of him planning to greet his fans at on his military discharge meeting. Awwwww, how thoughtful of him. I really like this kid a lot. I’m dying to see him in public in regular clothes again. I’m dying to see his future project as well. Welcome back, Yoo Seung Ho!

I’ve Been Liebstered!

LiebsterAwardWell, well, well… Look what I received while I was far, far 13,000 miles away from home! I got nominated not once, or twice… but five times! Congratulations to me! *ruffles self* And I’d like to dedicate this award to my crazy self first and foremost for all the sleepless night I had to make this blog happening to the eye of my followers and readers. It’s not perfect, I have no sense of direction, my writings are horrible, and I write whatever. Basically, I’m a messy writer. I constantly emphasize to people that if I could write with numbers, I’ll excel in writing this blog. Ok enough about that, I also would like to bow and extend my thanks and gratitude to DDee from the Obsessive Compulsive K-Drama Watching Disorder, Snow White from the The Drama Corner,  Drama Fan & Gumi from the Stuck on Hyuk, Jaime from the The Drama Noona and NeeNee from Asian Addicts Anonymous for nominating me!

happy

DDee’s Questions: ddee

I stumbled on DDee’s blog site one day and I remember liking and commenting couple of her posts, especially the Samsung web drama for Malaysians. We connect instantly ever since. Being Malaysian, we sort of speak the same language although her writing is way better than mine. I enjoy reading her unpredictable post. She’s unpredictable. Expect fun when you visit her blog. My mission this year with kfangurl is to get her on Twitter! Wish us luck!

1. If you could bankroll your dream drama, what genre would it be and who would you cast?

Romantic comedy, for sure. When it is acted, written and directed right, this genre drama can be extremely awesome and entertaining. With whom? *rubs chin* This is too much! I have too many actors in mind but for some reason, Kang Ji Hwan pops in my head. Well, he did pretty good in Lie to Me, Incarnation of Money and the movie My Girlfriend is an Agent. Sure, why not Ji Hwan-shi?

2. If you could travel back in time and be a fly on the wall in any drama shoot in the universe, which would you pick and why?

Rooftop Prince! Call me cheesy, who doesn’t want to be in a drama with 4 K-hotties, right? 

3. If you weren’t blogging about dramas, what would you be blogging about?

Well, I most probably will be blogging my daily life with my kid. I find him very interesting creature. He taught me a lot of things in the past 3 years than I have learned in my past 30+ years in life! LOL

4. How soon into your drama addiction did you want to start cooking and eating ramyun?

Soon! But then again, I pretty much grew up with ramyun and it is my staple food *wink* 

5. In what ways is your family similar to and different from the average K-drama family?

Similar enough: my husband is just like the typical Korean men! Mean, cold, dry humor and mannish. I still love him though hehehe. But that’s the only thing I can think of. Other than that, we live a normal life. No conglomerate family on my side, but yes on my hubby side which both of us are working hard to detach ourselves from them.

6. List 11 random facts about yourself. 11 random facts?

Hmmmmm, here we go:

  • I’m a vegetarian, but not a vegan – love eggs, cheese and milk too much to quit
  • I’m a Malaysian but have been away from the country since 1999
  • I have two cats I adopted back in 2008
  • I circle the globe every year (for work, of course)
  • I am licensed to drive on both right and left side of the road
  • I also enjoy driving stick shift (manual) car
  • I love to bake and I can bake all day long if I could
  • I dislike shopping – it stresses me out!
  • I am allergic to chocolate (cacao, cocoa, etc.) – but I’m stubborn so I take medicine daily so I can enjoy this sweetness 😉
  • I love spicy food even though my tummy said otherwise – i win, screw you tummy!
  • I have been with my husband almost 18 years – I can’t believe I spent half of my life with the same man! *thank God he doesn’t read my blog!*

SnowWhite’s Questions:

dcI visited Snow White’s The Drama Corner a lot. I don’t comment as much due to my busy schedule but her Picture Perfect post is my favorite. The picture post she posted speaks volume. And she’s not bias and stick to current airing dramas. It is one memorable post. She’s a true sunbae in kdrama blogging. She’s quit the popular Snow White 😉

1. Who is your favorite K-ent actor and actress?

This is a tough question because I have so, so many actors and actresses I like and love. Just to name a few: Yoo Seung Ho, Lee Dong Wook, Gong Yoo, Jo In Sung, Sung Joon, So Ji Sub, Song Hye Kyo, Kong Hyo-Jin, Kim Nam Gil, Ji Chang Wook… ok, you get the idea. I could go on forever! But to pick the best of the best? Here they are… coll

2. Talking about favorites, what are your favorite movies, tv serials, actors and actresses outside Kdramaland?

Oh geez, you got me… The last crazy tv serial I was into is Lost. Yes, I was extremely obsessed with the show. I have visited forum, I discussed every episode with my ex-colleagues at work all week long, and I even dreamed of it! As for actor and actress, I love Michael C Hall from Showtime network drama, Dexter and Rachel Griffiths from HBO’s Six Feet Under.

3. If your life were a drama, which one would it be?

Wow, another tough question. I want to be treated like a lovable princess like Chae Kyung (Yoon Eun Hye) from Goong. And an added bonus? To be married to a hottie Prince Lee Shin (Joo Ji Hoon). *fans self* My dream! 

4. Dramas or novels? Why?

I love both. But I have to say, I prefer dramas nowadays so I don’t have to waste my time imagining the scenario in my head when reading novels. Call me lazy… but dramas are in my mind 24/7/365!

5. Which color you like the most and why?

Lately I’m into red and I don’t know why. It somewhat screams confident and beautiful! So when I was in the Philippines, I was attracted by the color red so much I bought myself a red skirt! One day I’m going to brave myself and wear a bright red lipstick!

6. Your dream cast for a drama: main lead as wells as second leads…

Joo Ji Hoon. Ji Chang Wook. Sung Joon. And my best hottie: Yoo Seung Ho. Wae? I can’t have all of them in one drama? Bite me 😛 As for the female actress, I’ll cast Shim Ming Ah and Song Hye Kyo. 

7 . What is the best thing about blogging in your opinion?

I get to share my opinion with my readers and be part of Kdrama community. They are the best people I know and having the same dream as theirs making my blogging experience even memorable.

Drama Fan and Gumi’s Questions: dfOh my goodness, Drama Fan and I bonded really well through Tweeter last year when I started watching Chuno and Tree with Deep Roots. The girl is an avid sageuk drama! And I’m not…! So she hold my hand entire time while I was watching Jang Hyuk’s best work ever. And the fact that we are on the same continental, same time zone, 4 hours driving apart, this friendship is getting better and better every day. Gumi, on the other hand, it’s hard to keep up with as she is based in our motherland! And I envy her for meeting the man, Jang Hyuk oppa, 6 to 7 times now!

1. If you are going to a desert island, and you can only take 3 k-dramas with you, which will they be and why?

Playful Kiss, Goong and Operation Proposal. These dramas are my favorite of the bunch and a girl need her dose of romance all year round in order to survive in this desert island.

2. You are on the same desert island and you can make only 3 k-hotties to come spend time with you. Who will they be, and what would each be in charge of? (Who would do the cooking, etc?)

Yoo Seung Ho to cuddle with, MBLAQ GO to serenade me with his beautiful voice and Yong Doo Joon to eat with!

3. What is the one Korean singer I must definitely listen to, and which are his/her best songs?

You are asking the right person! My kpop boy toy, MBLAQ GO! I love all of his songs and it is hard to pick which song I want you to listen the most! Let’s start with O-IWI-O! You’re welcome 😀

4. The next time I go to Korean restaurant, what should I definitely order?

Sorry, I’m not helpful to you coz I’m a vegetarian. So my order is always sundubu jjigae and extra spicy juseyo!

5. What was your first K-drama crush?

Joo Ji Hoon! His character as Lee Shin in Goong did it! Last year alone (2013), I marathoned Goong 6 times because of him. 

6. What is the maximum number of episodes you have watched in a day?

Hmmmm, I think 25 episodes? But in my defense, it was 30 minutes episode long. Yeah, what was I thinking? 

7. Which is the Kdrama cliche you just can’t stand?

When the female lead get kissed and all she can do is stood there with her eyes open! What the…?

8. Which is the Kdrama cliche you actually enjoy?

When the male lead try to put seat belt on the female lead… I so want to be in her shoe!

9. Who is your favorite Korean actress?

10. Tell us your favorite Kdrama OST The absolute best?

I’m thorn between Bad Guy OST and Marry Me, Mary OST. I listen to these soundtracks religiously. 

Jaime’s Questions: noona

I get to know Jaime recently when kfangurl introduced her to the Tweeter world. Since then, we bonded pretty much instantaneously. In addition, we share one common ground: we are both mothers. Jaime is my new favorite person in Tweeter land. She’s also dipping her feet into fiction kdrama writing which I dig. If you are interested her working novel progress, check her site under Heart Murmurs.

1. Why did you start blogging?

I just want to share my opinion with drama watchers, simple as that. I want to let people know if the drama they decided to watch is worth investing. Lately, I have been a little biased and said yes to almost every drama I saw. My only reason not to drop the drama I started is because every drama deserves a second chance regardless of bad acting, poorly written script or unorganized plot. I tend to be more patience than others and not to quit any drama I started watching. 

2. How did you come out with the name of your blog?

I was attracted by the word muse but too many people have muse or musing as part of their blog title. I googled it and found that muse is pronounced as myooz. Asa and that’s how it started!

3. Who is your favorite author?

I haven’t been reading lately… But I love Sophie Kinsella. I’m very girly and chick lit is my thing.

4. What type of show/movie is your guilty pleasure?

Anything with fighting scene and the actor must be super cool at it! Example: Ji Chang Wook and Yoo Seung Ho in Warrior Baek Dong Soo. They are the bomb!

5. Do you have someone to watch dramas with?

Yes! ADGirl! I came to know her last year through Operation KDrama Chat and we have been kdrama BFF ever since. We pretty much talk about everything now, and not just dramas anymore. 

6. What is your favorite drama genre?

Rom-com. Jjang jjang! Isn’t it obvious though? My love for chick lit novel shapes me for anything romance and romantic comedy drama. 

7. Do you watch dramas from multiple countries?

Yes. I also watch dramas from Japan and Taiwan but I mainly focus on Korean dramas. 

8. If you could meet any actor, from any country, who would you meet?

Easy. Yoo Seung Ho. He’s my favorite actor. I even convinced myself that despite our big age gap, we can still work this noona-deongsaeng relationship *giggles*

9. Who is your current drama crush?

Sung Joon. He’s currently in I Need Romance 3. That face, that well build body, that smile, that height… Wow! I pronounced him as my new boy toy of 2014! 

10. Have you ever been nominated for a blogging award before?

Yes, I believed I was nominated 6 times last year. Nope, I’m still unpopular… *pouts*

neenee

Wow, I bonded with NeeNee last year through Crazy Love. That drama…. Let’s not go there but NeeNee’s posts for Crazy Love led me to know her more. We are also on the Twitter a lot so we exchange notes just about everything too. And also, we both love C-Clown! How cool is that?

1. What made you start blogging?

I decided to blog because I couldn’t find any partial reviews. Most of the reviews out there give out spoilers. I don’t mind spoilers but I know most people do. So I’m trying my best to review any drama once I hit the middle of the series. 

2. What keeps you blogging?

The kdrama community. I enjoy exchanging my views with kdrama fans, be it on my blog and in Twitter land. I love it. 

3. Future goals (in our outside the blogging/drama-watching sphere)?

Eeeeee, I  never thought of this before. I don’t want to think about it… But if you insists, I want to be a baker. I want to sell my cookies and cakes.

4. Profession (out of curiousity, what do you do in your real life)?

Hehehe, I deal with numbers. Lots of numbers. 

5. Gateway addition in the drama realm?

Wow, tough. It all started with Hong Kong drama. I’ve been watching Cantonese dramas since I was 6 years old. Yes, I’m truly an addict. There is no medicine for this. Hence, back to your question #3, that’s why I never thought of any future goal outside of drama-watching *wink*

6. Favorite quote?

get lost

7. Coffee? Tea? Neither?

Tea, all kind of tea except with mint. Yuck, mint should stay in toothpaste only.

8. Have you ever tried Calpis water (or something like it)?

Yes, but I haven’t had it in awhile. Hmmm… thanks. I should get a bottle for myself.

9. Are you proficient in more than one language? If so, which?

I speak Malay and Indonesian. I also self taught myself Chinese (because my MIL doesn’t speak English) and Korean. 

10. Favorite OST.

Too many! And I’m thorn between Bad Guy and Marry Me, Mary OST.
