Recommended Drama – My Name Is Kim Sam Soon

If you are curious about watching a Korean drama but you don’t know which Korean drama to start off with, I would recommend you to watch My Name is Kim Sam Soon (내 이름은 김삼순).

The Story

Its a story about a girl, Kim Sam Soon, in her 30’s who has just been dumped by her boyfriend on Christmas Eve. She goes crying and eventually ends up in the men’s bathroom where she met her future boss, Hyun Jin Heon, the owner of Bon Apetit. Their first meeting is not a friendly one, but little did she know that she would be working for him as the pastry chef of his restaurant. Jin Heon’s mom is continuing to pester him about getting married so he contracted Sam Soon to be his girlfriend. Later on, they both develop feelings for one another, but things get complicated when Jin Heon’s ex-girlfriend came home. Will both Sam Soon and Jin Heon end up together?? Ok.. so I wrote this synopsis myself because I don’t want to spoil the fun of watching the drama 🙂 Although we do know what happens to most romcom (romantic comedy), let’s just pretend not to know!

The Actors…

Kim Sun Ah

This is probably the best role she has ever done! She’s very very convincing..

Hyun Bin

This drama was in 2005, thus this drama was way before Secret Garden.Though we all loved him in Secret Garden, he was pretty good here for a new actor.

Jung Ryeo Won

I super love this girl. She’s one of those who made a successful cross over from being in a girl group to being an actress, she is just absolutely talented! Though this is one of her early dramas. But if you watch most of her works now, you’d be really amazed by her — try watching My Girlfriend has Two Faces.

Daniel Henney

 One word! HOT! ahaha I saw Daniel Henney for the first time after watching this drama and I never stopped adoring him! He is so handsome! kk ok… i’ll stop now before I start typing about how handsome he is.. but he is so handsome, isn’t he??

Why I Like It?

Honestly, this is not  the first drama that I have seen, but if I were to watch Kdrama’s all over again, I’d love to start with this. Most of the other dramas that I watched before this were all melodramas with a heavy theme. But this just hit the right spot, with me thinking at times “Why do you keep breaking my heart” or laughing like crazy. It was fun and light but with a story of its own. I guess that’s what I miss watching in romcoms. Some romcoms now just don’t have the flare of the old ones like Samsooni, Full House, Goong or Coffee Prince. To me they will always be classics.

As this drama was made in 2005, I love the fact that they made a story that many would realize and understand. In Korea its a big deal for a woman when they reach 30 and they’re not married or if they do not have a family. I am not Korean, but my Korean friends who are in their 30s have this dilemma. For most of us its just an age, but apparently there, women feel like they are old and there is that pressure to find your match before you get any older. Women also there feel that the older they are, the lesser will be the chance for them to get married. And if the pressure from the age is not enough, parents and relatives ask them when will they get married. My friend hates going to her hometown because of this pressure! To me, I think this drama made girls understand that women in their 30s still do have a chance and that they can still be beautiful!

Kim Sun Ah was at her best in this drama. She was very very effective as 30 year old chubby loveless girl. And what amazes me is that she had to put on some weight to play this girl. She’s a pro.  I have to say this is Kim Sun Ah’s drama and she will forever be remembered as Kim Sam Soon! Even now, when I see her, I always associate her as Samsooni! That’s how faboulous she is!

But if you watch this drama.. please remember that this was made in 2005, so it doesn’t have all the new gadgets and high fashion of the dramas now..

The OST

 This drama also had one of the most unforgettable songs! It was this drama that made Clazziquai (Alex, Horan and Dj Clazzi) popular in the mainstream Kpop music. Here are 2 of the songs from the drama which you might have heard before.

Be My Love (first part) and She Is

Picture Spam! Don’t you just love this drama!

So if you’re looking for a good Kdrama to start  your Hallyu addiction, My Name is Kim Sam Soon will be a good one!

Introducing the Hanbok Fusion

It’s almost time for Seollal (Korean New Year) once again and sooner we would be seeing some of our favorite Kpop artists and Kdrama actors and actresses to send their greetings to their fans.. and so I thought I would post something about the Hanbok Fusion.

If you are a Hallyu fan, you would probably know what a Hanbok is. It is the Korean traditional costumes. We see it all the time in the Saeguk (historical) dramas. The Hanbok is a very colorful dress that comes in different designs and colors. Most often these dresses are won for special occasions like wedding, birthdays and traditional stuff. However, that doesn’t stop the hanbok from becoming modernized. Thus I give you the Fusion Hanbok.

Fusion Hanbok is like taking the traditional Hanbok and giving a new twist to it so it can be worn for other occasions like an office party, or a modern wedding, or at an awards show. You may have noticed some Kpop girl groups wear them before (like Secret).

Some of the designs include having the hanbok style cut like a cocktail dress, and some have the same hanbok style as well as the length minus the sleeves. These style added a touch of the contemporary style.

I’m posting up my favorites on this posts…

Which one would you wear?

Sandra Oh Wearing a Hanbok at the 14th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards 

John Galiano‘s Hanbok inspired gown presented at the 2011 Christian Dior Couture Fashion Show — I LOVE IT!!!!

I love the pastel colors in this modern Hanbok.. I would love to have one of this!

How the Hanbok would look like in the 1920’s….

Now let’s not forget the Kpop stars who look good with Fusion Hanbok… these are the ones I like… oh and I loved the Hanbok’s Secret wore (picture on top).. especially Zinger’s!

Zinger (Secret) – Love the Color!!

 Seungyeon (Kara) – I love love this.. it’s something you could wear to a party!

Eunjung (T-ara)

Jessica (SNSD)

I super love fusion hanboks! I wish I had one… I think this is all because of seeing Yoon Eun Hye’s clothes in Goong! kk

But if you would like to have your own fusion hanbok, you can visit this site:  http://www.sonjjang-hanbok.com/

They make hanbok.. but i’m not sure about the quality though. I haven’t ordered from them, but their designs are quite good, especially the cocktail styled hanboks.

Now I want my hanbok!~~~ kk

Kpop Star’s Su Pearls

Annyeong!

It feels so good to be posting on this blog. I really should be doing something now but I thought what the hell.. I’m gonna write a post on my blog! I can’t believe that this blog has come a long way from the first time i created it. But again thank you for visiting my blog 🙂

Anyway so I’ve been busy with work and everything so I haven’t caught up with the latest Kpop trends. I still have to watch the year end Gayos.. I downloaded them but I need to find time to watch them. I’m missing a lot of songs lately, and my playlist hasn’t been updated for ages.  So when my friend sent a video of a Kpop reality called Kpop Star, I didn’t know about it. And after I watched the performance she sent me I was literally  having goosebumps! I never saw something like this in Kpop reality search!

I am talking about the breathtaking, brilliant, astonishing, superb (I’m running out of adjectives!) performance of Su Pearls!

One word: BRAVO!

I am not kidding when I say that I have goosebumps! This is one of the best I’ve seen on Korean reality! Can you imagine being there when they performed live! Ok too many exclamation points. — that shows you how excited and giddy I am to talk about this audition video. It’s unlike any other..

A quick background about the show: its called Kpop Star and its a show on SBS. Like most Kpop star search shows, they are looking for the next big star. However, this time, the judges on the show are from the 3 big companies that gave us the idol groups whom we now adore. They are BOA (SM Entertainment), Yang Hyun Seok (YG Entertainment), Jin Young Park (JYP Entertainment). I would probably guess that they are looking for the next big name in the Kpop industry.

So anyway, they do the same thing having auditions and stuff, but I have to say most of the contestants on this show are really good… So on with Su Pearls..

The reason why I liked this group so much was because of the harmony they did to the song. I mean, yes its a pop song.. but they gave a soulful twist to the song which made me great! And it sounded totally different from the original. I liked “The Boys” when Girls Generation did it, and I loved it more when they made their rendition to this song. Girls Generation did the Pop version while Su Pearls did the Rnb version! Different genres of music, same song! Wonderful, just utterly wonderful!

Also, you might have recognized the third girl on the video as the girl that sang Rolling In the Deep on the same show.

The video went viral that it was even shown on the news! Park Jimin — OMG! she’s only 15 and she can belt like that! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! This is probably one of the best Rolling in the Deep cover that I’ve heard! And her pronunciation’s great too. If I was closing my eyes, I wouldn’t have guessed it was a Korean singing it!

I’m watching out for these girls again! I like Lee Michelle too.. I’d love to see her sing.. I’m thinking she’s like the next Insooni.. kk I can’t wait to see more of her..

Looking forward to more of this show! (Su Pearls Fighting!!!!)
