Chinese Drama to Watch – Legend of Fuyao

I’ve recently been binge watching a lot of Chinese Dramas – especial historical, wuxia and xanxia ones. Ten Miles of Peach Blossom did this to me!

The one I am most anticipating for this year is Legend of Fuyao (扶摇).
Edit: Watch Legend of Fuyao on Viki! <— Click this link for the first ep.

Legend of Fuyao is a drama adapted from novel Empress Fuyao (扶摇皇后). It’s the story of Meng Fu Yao, a woman born from a divine lotus petal. She journeys through the five continents towards the heavens in search of a secret order and to reveal a conspiracy originating from the heavens. In the process, she falls in love with the crown prince Zhangsun Wuji. (credits: mydramalist.com)

The drama will star Yang Mi, Ethan Ruan (Juan) a Vengo Gao.

Why am I Anticipating this drama?

1. It’s a Yang Mi drama

Like I said in another post, I haven’t gotten over Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. I am still reeling the after effects of Ye Hua and Bai Qian’s love story. Since Yang Mi played Bai Qian in that drama, I am binge watching on her past dramas. Yang Mi is not really my favorite Chinese actress – but I think her style works well in historical dramas – like Palace. As the drama title’s namesake, we will surely be seeing a lot of Yang Mi in this drama.

2. Ethan Ruan (Juan) plays the male lead

I was a very big Fated to Love You (Taiwanese version) fan. I loved how quirky Ethan Ruan was in that drama. If I am not mistaken that was one of his dramas that shot him to stardom. In the past years, I have not watched a lot of Taiwanese dramas (Korean dramas has me busy :)) – so I have not seen him in dramaland for a long time. I can’t wait to watch this drama because of him – and I can’t wait to see him do some action!

3. Familiar Ten Miles of Peach Blossom Faces

Hello Donghua Dijun (Vengo Gao) and Senior disciple Die Fung (Lai Yi)! It’s nice to see you both are in the same drama. Both will be playing important roles in the drama. Although I would love to see more familiar faces with Yang Mi in a drama – but having 2 of them is enough

4. Oh those Fight Scenes

I am totally loving the fight scenes in the trailers. It might be because the drama’s martial arts choreographer – Li Cai – worked in productions like Hero and House of Flying Daggers. These 2 movies – Hero especially – are some of my favorite wuxia movies. I can’t wait to see them fight scenes.

5. Every Female Crew, Every Hardworking One is Fuyao Trailer

In the past 6 months a lot of Fuyao trailers came out – there was the Pure Heart version (posted above), the action trailer and the valentine trailer. But my favorite trailer is this:

The marketing team of this trailer is smart to have made this trailer – because one they know that their main viewers will be women and two because they know how to touch women’s hearts. I love this trailer because it recognized the women behind the scenes of making this drama. The main character Fuyao is a strong woman. This trailer is saying that there is a Fuyao in every women.

This drama will start airing tomorrow, June 18, 2018 until August 23.

Edit: Watch Legend of Fuyao on Viki!
As of writing Episodes 1 and 2 are subbed (yay! thank you subbers)
Although some shows in Viki are not available in the Philippines but I am glad I could watch this!
(ps. I was not paid by Viki to post this)

Totally Enjoying Forever Young by BLACKPINK

BLACKPINK just released their new mini-album SQUARE UP. And while everyone is talking about the title track 뚜두뚜두 (DDU-DU DDU-DU), I decided to write about the second single from the mini-album Forever Young.

I did enjoy listening to the title track, but every time I listen to Blackpink’s Square Up, my heart is with FOREVER YOUNG.

 

Why I like it?

I have to be honest, my first impression of the title track 뚜두뚜두 was kind of mixed – I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. Mixed probably because it was different from Blackpink’s music in the last year. I mean if you listen to Boombayah and As If It Was Your Last (마지막처럼) it’s different. But the more you listen to it the more the rhythm sinks in – the more you like it.

However, I think Forever Young is more the sound of the Blackpink I know and like. It’s more familiar to my ears. I am not saying it’s not a good thing to have a change in style. I actually think that it’s more advantageous to be more versatile in music – to not just have one style. But I’m someone who need time getting used to something that’s new. Also, Forever Young is more my kind of music – I’ve always preferred upbeat hits when it comes to Kpop groups.

Lyrics to the songhttps://genius.com/Blackpink-forever-young-lyrics

Square Up has been anticipated by a lot of fans. I’m not a Blink – Sorry Blackpink but I will always be a Blackjack by heart – but I am kind of disappointed that YG only made a mini-album for them. I mean it’s been 2 years since they’ve debuted – I think they deserved a full length 10-12 track album by now. Four songs are not enough for their fans. But then again – this is YG’s style (remember how many mini-albums Big Bang had before they had a full length one?).

Anyway, here’s a link to Blackpink’s title track: 뚜두뚜두 (DDU-DU DDU-DU)

And here’s a playlist to their Square Up mini-album in case you’re interested to listen to it

Happy Listening!

Ten Miles of Peach Blossom OST – Bracing the Chill 凉凉

I was late in the Three Lives, Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossom / Eternal Love craze.

The drama was released earlier last year – but I just finished watching it 3 weeks ago. And I still haven’t gotten over it!

Ye Hua and Bai Qian story is still pulling heartstrings. I haven’t rewatched the whole drama but I’ve been rewatching a few of my favorite episodes. Because of that I cannot NOT post this!

This post is short but it is definitely a dedication to my favorite song in the drama.

The song is called Bracing the Chill (Liang Liang  凉凉) and it was played in the drama over and over again. Whenever I hear this, my heart is being pulled into a hundred different directions! Talk about having an effective OST for a drama!

It will take another blog post for me to share to you my thoughts (and love) for the drama, but for now I will make this post short.

If you haven’t seen the drama, go to Youtube or Dramafever to watch it! I promise you sitting through all 58 episodes is worth it!

Youtube playlisthttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLi8NbMnb2eFhaNro97G_rMoQLpOvA75bq

(PS: I might edit this post later for the lyrics – so I will only have the video for now)

Meteor Garden 2018 – Interesting Bits from the Trailer

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted something. I’ve actually been itching to blog but I couldn’t find the right time and the right subject to write about. Today, I’m sitting here waiting for my friends to finish work when Youtube suggests the Meteor Garden 2018 trailer.

Perfect! Perfect subject – perfect time to write a blog post!

Before I continue talking about the (fairly) new trailer, I have to add a disclaimer that I have always been a fan of the Meteor Garden / Hana Yori Dango / Boys Over Flowers. Although Meteor Garden (Taiwan) was the first Asian drama that got me hooked, Hana Yori Dango (Japan) will always be my favorite version. Probably because it’s the closest adaptation to the manga (in my opinion). But because Meteor Garden (Taiwan) opened my eyes to a whole new world of Asian dramas – it will always hold a special place in my heart. (Not to mention Vic Zhou is still my ultimate Taiwanese actor crush! Zai zai ai ni <3! lol)

I’ve been anticipating the trailer of the new Meteor Garden drama since it was announced then Shen Yue (A Love So Beautiful) will play Shancai. I just finished watching A Love So Beautiful and I was quite impressed with her so I am quite pleased with the casting. When the trailer came out – my anticipation reached it’s peak!

Trailer

Trailer with English subs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiesmxjQozk

Here’s why:

Original Soundtrack – Qing Fei De Yi (情非得已)

Hearing the original guitar rifts of the OST from the original Meteor Garden will sure bring back memories to those who’ve seen the original drama. I think it’s great strategy for them to use the original opening theme because it definitely brings nostalgia from the fans of the original drama. Makes them curious to watch the new drama.

That Volleyball Scene

Oh yes – there was a volleyball scene in the original drama. I still remember how cringe-worthy it was watching it but – hey 4 cute (handsome for some) guys playing volleyball in one scene is too much to handle for a teen watching the drama. But I am not sure if I find the new F4 cute – just not my type now (still rooting for Zai zai!)

Similarities with Hana Yori Dango

I’ve mentioned in the beginning of this blog that Hana Yori Dango is my favorite among all the adaptations. The trailer has snippets of scenes very reminiscent of the Japanese TV version – like Ski Resort scenes, the mansion looks similar with Domyouji’s mansion and the emphasis on Hua Ze Lei’s (Hanazawa Rui’s) violin playing skills. If I remember correctly, the original Taiwanese version had some changes in the story that made it different from the original manga. Although these were ok – I am still a gal who prefers faithful adaptations. I do hope that this version will stay true to the drama.

Adapting the Story for Millenials

The first Meteor Garden version was released in 2001. That was almost 20 years ago from today. Fashion, fads, language and culture has changed since then. Although Meteor Garden’s story can be retold a hundred times – the setting indeed has to be changed. I’m glad they’ve changed it to adapt to the new generation.

Location Location Location

Meteor Garden’s story involves bringing the cast to a different country. In the new trailer – I see that they went on 3 different locations – the Ski resort (it’s probably in another country), England (I see one scene where the English flag is flying) and Shanghai. We might be seeing more than just those 3 places. This production is indeed a big one!

This trailer makes me excited for the new reboot! However, I am not quite sure yet whether I would like the drama or not – because it will still be the same Meteor Garden story and because deep inside I will be comparing it to the older versions. But I do have faith in Shen Yue! Although Barbie Hsu Shancai was quirky and strong, I think Shen Yue’s Chen Xaioxi was more effective in A Love So Beautiful. As for the male leads – I am not as familiar with them so it’s difficult to give a commentary.

Are you excited for the Meteor Garden reboot? Comment below to let us know!

The New Meteor Garden 流星花园 will start airing on July 16, 2018.

I’ve Just Discovered BTS… and… I get why fans adore them

Truth be told I am an old soul when it comes to Kpop. I became a fan back in 2008 when DBSK / Super Junior / Wonder Girls / Big Bang ruled the industry. Back then I could recognize the idol group, their members and name their songs.

I have been out of sync with the Kpop world for a few years and when I started listening to Korean music, I cannot by the life of me, recognize the artist or their songs anymore. In the past 4 years, it’s amazing how the Korean music industry grew. It’s even more accessible to the public now.

Anyway – going back to this post.

My friends have, for the longest time, been persuading me to listen and check out BTS방탄소년단). I just keep saying – I will soon. There was still a lot more of catching up to do for groups, singers and shows that I’ve shelved in the past 4 years. And then finally, last Saturday I had time to listen to BTS and… I am MINDBLOWN! (Don’t believe check out this week’s Spotify playlist -it’s BTS baby!) 

I’ve just discovered BTS – and I absolutely get why fans adore them.

If you didn’t know yet, this is BTS:

7 (handsome and charming) boys who debuted in 2013
– who are now taking the world by storm!

I still couldn’t recognize who is who (sorry – this eonni’s memory is not so good anymore). But their names are Jin, J-Hope, RM (formerly Rap Monster), Suga, Jimin, V and Jungkook. Honestly, I only know V (because I saw him on Celebrity Bromance and his friendship with Bogum) and RM (because I saw him on a show rapping).  For their extensive profile, check this link: BTS Profile.

I’ve just discovered them but I adore them because:

Their songs are different!

Kpop is a genre that I love – but one reason why I refrained from listening in the past years is because they’ve become too CUTE and too similar. Don’t get me wrong – I still listen to some of them – Twice’s Cheer Up and IOI’s Very Very Very are some of my new found favorites. I guess there was a time when the industry just followed the cutesy trend.

But listening to BTS – I found their songs different from the norms. Their songs were definitely more edgy. It kind of gave me Epik High / Big Bang / Block B vibes – something I think this industry should have more. It was pop – but definitely had hip hop tones. I could listen to their songs all day.

My top 3 songs would have to be:

Spring Day  (봄날)
(I absolutely die when they say bogoshipda. I am a sucker for songs that sound like this. It reminds me of Kpop songs circa 2010-2012)

Blood Sweat and Tears (피 땀 눈물)
(By far, the one with the best beat for me. Makes you want to bob your head up and down)

Just One Day (하루만) 
(It’s more pop than hip hop but I like the rap. It’s one of their earliest tracks.)

Their Greeting

In an industry where competition is fierce, a groups greeting should (1) be distinct and (2) recognizable so people can easily remember it. Super Junior has mastered this with their “Orinuen Super Juni – O – R” greeting.

BTS’s “Bang Tan” with its matching hand gesture is one greeting that is recognizable and distinct from others. And I love how simple the greeting is – and because of it’s simplicity it can be changed to different languages – while sounding the same… don’t believe me – check out the video below and listen to the English and Japanese versions.

BTS A.R.M.Y

A group is only as strong as their fandom – I am a firm believer of this. The support the fans give a group fuel a group’s performance.  I should know being part of a fandom that has been existing for years (E.L.F).  So I cannot not notice the group’s fanbase.

BTS is blessed with what I could consider as a great fandom. If there is one word that I could use to describe BTS A.R.M.Y (an acronym for Adorable Representative MC for Youth) it would be DAEBAK!

Fans are instrumental for the rise of a group. I commend how well they support BTS – especially through fan projects. I love it when fans do something like this:

I’ve just discovered BTS and I truly get why their fans adore them.

I still have a lot of catching up to do these boys and their music – but I have definitely become a fan and I cannot wait for them to be on the Late Late Show!!!

Super Junior 슈퍼주니어 Black Suit MV Teaser

Countdown to Super Junior  슈퍼주니어 comeback: D-5.

I got a message earlier today on LINE reminding me of Super Junior’s comeback. Just a few days more to go.

That message also told me that they’ve just released the first Teaser Video of Black Suit‘s MV.  When that message came, I was out with friends, I couldn’t wait to watch it. Now fast forward to (an agonizing) 12 hours later, I finally get to see it.

Looking at the video, I cannot help but think how mature they’ve grown after their respective military services. It’s often said by several artists in the past that military service brings a change in them. Maybe it’s just probably me, but somehow, there is something more manly in the way they project themselves now.

There must be some story in the MV as each member is assigned a persona (the Security, the Appraiser, the Transporter, the Millionaire, the Client Representative, the Decoy and the host). I’m guessing it has something to do with transporting the all important Black suit somewhere – I mean there’s a decoy (Oh ye Hollywood, you’re making my imagination work!). Just a thought though – I’d wish Yesung’s Transporter had Jason Statham vibe. Yep, I’ve definitely been watching too many action movies!

There will be 2 more teasers released tomorrow and on the 3rd. And on November 6 (Suju’s anniversary) their 8th album will be released.

It’s a pity though that Siwon will not be able to participate during broadcast promotions (SM released a statement yesterday about this). As my bias, I was anticipating him being on music shows. It was sad to only have 7 of them participate in the album, now it makes me sadder that Siwon won’t be performing.  But although he will not be in the broadcasts, we can still catch him in his new drama Revolutionary Love.

It must be hard on the rest of the members. But I know they’re see it through
Now it’s up to us ELFs to show them our undying support!

Super Junior fighting! 슈퍼주니어 화이팅!!!

BlackPink in your Areaaa…

Raise your hand if you’re a BlackPink fan!

BlackPink
I am the type of person who loves music not by what it means but by its beat. I became an instant Blackpink fanatic when a friend of mine gave me a link on Spotify with all the Kpop Music, and while playing it I fell in love with Stay and Boombayah. Their music video is the bomb! The colors, the setup and everything is on point. All of the members are also good dancers and singers – you’d wish you’re part of their group! (dreaming) 😀

All of the members are pretty too <3. See below :

Lisa – Main Dancer ,  Lead Rapper , Sub Vocalist

Lisa

Jisoo – Lead Vocalist , Visual ,  Face of the Group

(It goes a little something like)
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
jigeum dangjang manheungeol baraneun ge anya
geujeo nae gyeote stay with me
(music)

English Translation:

Before the dark night traps me in
Don’t leave me
Do you still love me? If you feel the same
Don’t leave today
Don’t ask why it has to be you
Just stay with me

(It goes a little something like)
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
Lalalalalala Lalalalalala Lalalalalala
I don’t expect a lot right now
Just stay with me

 

2. Boombayah

(music)  Boombayah
Yah yah yah boombayah
Yah yah yah boombayah
Yah yah yah yah
Boom boom ba boom
Boom ba oppa  (music)

The way they deliver the word Oppa is the sexiest thing I’ve heard.

 

3. Whistle

(music) Make a whistle like a Missile bomb bomb (music)

Nahh, I’m just amaze by how it rhymes. (hahahaha)

 

4. Playing with Fire

(music)
uri eomman maeil naege malhaesseo
eonjena namja joshimharago
sarangeun machi buljangnan gataseo
dachinikka Eh
(music)

English Translation:

My mom told me every day
To always be careful of guys
Because love is like playing with fire
I’ll get hurt

 

5. As If it’s your last

(music)

Baby nal teojil geotcheoreom anajwo
Geuman saenggakhae mwoga geuri eoryeowo
Geojitmalcheoreom kiss haejwo naega neoege
Majimak sarangin geotcheoreom

Majimakcheoreom mamamajimakcheoreom
Majimak bamin geotcheoreom love
Majimakcheoreom mamamajimakcheoreom
Naeil ttawin eopsneun geotcheoreom
(music)

English Translation:

Baby, hold me till I explode
Stop thinking, what’s so hard about this?
Kiss me like it’s a lie
As if I’m your last love

As if it’s the last, as, as, as if it’s the last
As if it’s the last night, love
As if it’s the last, as, as, as if it’s the last
As if there’s no tomorrow

There you go my BlackPink my loves. Comment below if you’re one of us. 😀

One More Chance (비처럼 가지마요) – Super Junior (MV)

It’s the perfect time to be for my Asian madness to come back! Perfect because my boys are making their comeback!!!!

I’ve been watching them on VLive for some time and I have been highly anticipating Super Junior’s 슈퍼주니어 new releases. Although it has been decided that their title track will be “Black Suit” (it was also my favorite among all those samples they’ve reviewed), they’ve release an MV ballad 비처럼 가지마요 (One More Chance).

I know Super Junior is mostly known for their dance tracks but I’m so much pleased that they’ve released a ballad first! In one of their VLives Heechul was convincing them to release a ballad – just like what Sechskies did. And I totally agree with him. This ballad shows the mature side of Super Junior. It’s high time that they release something like this – it’s time to tell the world that it’s not only Super Junior KRY who does the ballads!

Although it’s kind of sad that there will only be 7 members who will be making the comeback this time – it’s better than them not releasing at all. On the brighter side of things, having only 7 members participate in the comeback mean they get to showcase more of their singing chaps. I’m especially thrilled in that this song has Shindong singing lines – not just the adlibs (like he did for Bonamana). With the absences for Ryeowook and Kyuhyun (since both are in the army), Donghae, Siwon, Heechul and Leeteuk have longer parts. But it must be a burden for Yesung. I just wish Eunhyuk sang – but there has to be a rapper so that’s fine.

My boys have become so much cooler after their army days!

Now I can’t wait for their come back! Just a few days more! Super Junior fighting! 슈퍼주니어 화이팅!!!

Perhaps Love – Eric Nam and Cheeze (Lyrics)

Joy mentioned in her previous post that one of the reason why we are so KILIG for Kdramas is the OST. Each one of us has their own favorite. Mine – to this day – has always been  사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) from the drama 궁 Goong (Princess Hours).

This OST has always made my heart flutter every time I hear it. It’s the first song that I learned to sing in Korean and it has always been a go-to noraebang song for me (because I know the lyrics by heart). Memorized much? you bet – since at that time I wasn’t able to read Hangeul yet.

I couldn’t recall of a remake of this song – and it hasn’t been sung much on Korean shows. However – early this year – March 24 to be exact, Eric Nam (에릭남) sang it in a show called Duet Song Festival.

Thank you Eric Nam and his duet partner for bringing LIFE. It has been so long since this song was played on broadcasts. I’m pretty sure that a lot of people aren’t familiar with the song. So for that THANK YOU  for  reintroducing this song to Kpop audiences again. [By the way – Eric Nam if you’re reading this, I’ve been a fan since your release of Heaven’s Door (천국의 문)].

Another reason to thank Eric Nam is because he released a track fro this song with Cheeze.

Although the video is quite short, but you can listen to this full track:

The song has a different vibe and style from the original one. The original one was a classic OST song, while this is a trendy one. I’m not really a fan of covers because at times they don’t give justice to the song. But with this cover – I’m not complaining (though Howl and J’s version would always remain a classic).

I’ve posted the lyrics to this song when I first started this blog (back when I didn’t know much what I was doing).  Because my obsessive compulsive tendencies on this blog are complaining, I’m re-posting lyrics for this song.

Perhaps Love – Translation

Since when has it been? I can’t remember…
When my head became dizzy with thoughts of you
Once or twice, these thoughts would pop up in my mind
I feel anxious as my heart opens more towards you
“It’s nothing”, “My heart is insignificant”
If I keep telling you, it would be – kind of awkward

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

I want to explain what’s in my heart now
(But) You’d have to become me, it’s the only way you’d feel it
I’m already inside you, as you’re inside me
With each other… (With each other)
Already, that we’ve been too familiar, we have no idea

Is it love? If you feel the same way, is it the beginning?
My heart keeps saying it loves you
It yells until the whole world can hear
Why has it taken so long for me to hear it?
We’ve finally met, Love has found us right now

If I try thinking about it, (If I try thinking about it)
At many moments,(At them)
How often did my heart flutter?
It might be a little late, but I’ll surely make it better

We’ll do it together, I’ll only give you memorable memories
Please don’t leave my side ever again
Even a shortest moments make me uneasy
Please stay with me
So much like this, (Much until that point)
I love you (Only you) already

사랑인가요 (Perhaps Love) – Hangeul

언제였던건지 기억나진 않아
자꾸 내 머리가 너로 어지럽던 시작
한 두번씩 떠오르던 생각
자꾸 늘어가서 조금 당황스러운 이 마음
별일이 아닐 수 있다고 사소한 마음 이라고
내가 네게 자꾸
말을 하는게 어색한걸

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈
사랑한대요 온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우 –
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

지금 내 마음을 설명하려 해도
니가 내가 되어 맘을 느끼는 방법 뿐인데
이미 난 니안에 있는 걸
내 안에 니가 있듯이
우린 서로에게 (서로에게)
이미 길들여진지 몰라

사랑인가요 그대 나와 같다면 시작인가요
맘이 자꾸 그댈 사랑한대요
온 세상이 듣도록 소리치네요
왜 이제야 들리죠 우-
서롤 만나기 위해 이제야 사랑 찾았다고

생각해보면 (생각해보면)
많은 순간속에 (속에)
얼마나 많은 설레임 있었는지
조금 늦은 그 만큼 난
더 잘해 줄께요

함께 할께요 추억이 될 기억만 선물할께요
다신 내곁에서 떠나지 마요
짧은 순간조차도 불안한 걸요
내게 머물러줘요 우-
그댈 이렇게 많이 (그토록 많이)
사랑하고 있어요 (그대 하나만) 이미 –

6 Reasons Why Korean Drama Make us Kilig <3

Hi I’m Joy. I’m a fan of Kdrama and Kpop.
I’m currently into While You Were Sleeping & BlackPink.
I’ve always wanted to blog and so I couldn’t believe I’m posting my first post ever! Enjoy

First off let’s define Kilig!

** KILIG **
Noun:
– A sudden feeling of an inexplicable joy one gets when something romantic or idealistic occurs.

When a person is at the state of Kilig,  one may experience the following symptoms:
– butterflies in one’s stomach
– heart melting 
– shivers down one’s spine
irrepressible noises from one’s mouth
– uncontrollable smiling
– an inner conflict between hope of something wished for and reality

Here are 6 Reasons we think Korean Drama’s make us KILIG!

Reason #1 : Back Hug
Most of Korean Dramas have this action of affection. In my fangirling point of view back hugs not only made us kilig it made us smile and weep.

Here are my back hug favorite moments:
The Heirs

Reason #2 : Grab and Kiss

Ahhh, who could resist feeling kilig when your favorite love team do this in drama you love. Like you can screeaammm your lungs out because you could do nothing but to scream! Your first impression usually: it’s harsh for a guy to grab the girl, but then you’ll realize it is romantic that after he grab her he make her feel protected then will kiss her. Sometimes it is a sudden kiss that our heroine could do nothing but to close her eyes and feel the moment!

 

Reason #3 : Cold Outside but deep inside super inlove

Most, but not all of Kdramas I’ve seen, has it’s lead actor treat the heroine with coldness but this treatment will eventually change into love. Then towards the middle of the drama, this harsh guy will eventually become the knight of the shining armor of our lady in waiting. Isn’t it kilig? It’s like you feel emotional outburst —  butterflies in stomach you can’t handle.

Reason #4 : Cutie Actor

When they smile or wink or just simple gesture make our heart melting.

Lee Min Ho, Park Bo Gum, Ji Chang Wook, Kim Bum, Song Jong Ki and other hot korean actors, there appearance make you kilig for no reason. We all have our favorites… whose yours? Comment below 🙂

Awww whose hearts wouldn’t melt when you see these:

We’re guilty including them in our prayers to be loved by the character we fall in the drama.
If you need a daily dose of kilig to light your day, best to follow your favorite Oppa in social media!

 

Reason #5 : The Scene itself

Setting is one of the vital component in drama. What i like about South Korea is there place is so romantic and their seasons (Spring,Winter,Summer,Fall) are the best. So let’s go back with our kilig topic. When you witness your favorite love team kissing under the falling cherry blossom tree plus the slow motion, your not just feeling kilig but also day dreaming it was you. HAHAHA

Or when our heroin feels cold in winter and then the leading man offers his hand for her to feel the heat. Ahhhh!! No wonder there are a lot of people visit each filming location of there favorite Kdrama and one day I will. (Crossing my fingers to this one!)

 

Reason #6 : OST (Original Sound Track)

Let’s not deny that after an episode, we can’t stop to hum the OST played with the vivid vision of what we saw and feel. Well, for me an OST can be one of the factor we feel kilig, the soundtrack when it is played especially on the scene that they are confessing there love for each other (heart bursting ahhhh).

It is in the OST that when it plays the feels of the Kdrama comes back (sigh).

My favorite has to be Davichi’s This Love (이 사랑) from Descendants of the Sun.

 

So there you go, my 6 Reason why Kdrama makes me Kilig I’m always hooked!
