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 Sleepingย & 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,ย  one may experience the following symptoms:
– butterflies in one’s stomach
– heart meltingย 
– 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
That time Kim Tan back hugs Cha Eun-Sang

Scarlet Heart: Ryeo
Who doesn’t love it when 4th Prince Wang So back hugs Hae Soo

Love In the Moonlight
Hong Ra-on back hugs Lee Yeoung (Oh Bogum.. your smile makes us melt)
love in the moonlight

I still have many back hug memories in my mind I can’t enumerate. ๐Ÿ˜€
What are your favorite? You can comment below. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

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 —ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 (์ด ์‚ฌ๋ž‘) from Descendants of the Sun.

 

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

We want to hear what’s your favorite Kdrama and what makes you kilig. Comment down below.

Waiting (๊ธฐ๋‹ค๋ฆฌ๋‹ค) – Panic (ํŒจ๋‹‰)

I am absolutely enjoying old Kpop songs these days. I don’t know but I get excited when I hear them sing an old song and I immediately jumped to looking for the original singer of the song.

I have been listening to this song over and over for the past few days (its this and David Choi’s By My Side). I know it has been sung over and over again by several artists and it has been featured in Kdramas, the latest of which was in Dream High. But I guess this song will not fade (that’s why I love old songs :))

The song is called Waiting (๊ธฐ๋‹ค๋ฆฌ๋‹ค) by Panic (ํŒจ๋‹‰). I couldn’t find any music video so I settled for a this….

and ย a live version of Lee Jeok (์ด์ ) singing (by the way he was part of Panic but he’s a solo artist now..

This song was originally releases in 1995 as part of Panic’s first album. I absolutely love the strumming of the guitar in this song. There is something about acoustic music that really draws me. Must be my liking for rock music. And the song’s melody is truly saying the feeling of the lyrics of the song, so that’s another plus in my book. I just love it and I have been playing this again and again. Here’s the lyrics to help you sing along…

Waiting (English Translation)

While I was waiting for you,
Iโ€™ve been thinking that youโ€™re so painful after you left me.
So youโ€™re crying on the way back to me.
When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Canโ€™t I see you again?
I canโ€™t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Donโ€™t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
Iโ€™ll hug you like I did before.

When I look at you, I hope.
On a clear day you will come back to me just like when you left me.

Canโ€™t I see you again?
I canโ€™t see me in your eyes
Comfortable waves and remains of the smile make me cry.
You’d come back to me
Donโ€™t hesitate to come to my arms if your heart called me
Iโ€™ll hug you like I did before.

I know a lot of Kdrama fans recognized this song being sung by Pilsuk’s (IU) character from Dream High. This was the song she was singing in the hospital. But I liked this song when I saw Kim Hyun Joong singing it in Boys Over Flowers. This was the song he sang when he was in Macau (before the acoustic version of Because I’m a Fool). *wink *wink ^_^

So who sang it better?

Can’t Open Up My Lips – K.Will (MV)

I knew it!!! When I first saw K.Will‘s new MV, My Heart is Beating, I noticed that there is a guy buy of no significant role. He was just a visitor in the cafe IU works in… I thought… I think he has a role but eventually the video did not let us see more of him!

And yes oh yes! Apparently he does have a purpose… in K. Will’s second single Can’t Open My Eyes (์ž…์ด๋–จ์–ด์ง€์ง€ ์•Š์•„์„œ).

To watch an HD version, click on this link…

So he is the guy who admires IU from afar but can’t say what his feelings are because IU (in this video) like Lee Joon of MBLAQ’a character. It’s a little predictable but I like how they waited for the next video before they tell us why the heck he is there!

Compared to My Heart is Beating, this is a slower ballad and is leaning toward a heartbreak song. And from the comments in the video, I guess a lot of people are wondering who he is. But I have to say he does look good.. so I guess maybe he is a trainee of Starship entertainment and we could be seeing more of him soon! kk

My Heart Is Beating – K. Will MV

I love watching music videos with stories in it. And I love K. will.

So if you add those two you will have this video… K. will’s recent songย My Heart is Beating (๊ฐ€์Šด์ด๋›ด๋‹ค).

The video is from StarshipTV (the company where Kwill is signed). So if you want to view the HD version click on this link.

As usual I love the sound of this song. Actually I have a particular bias for K. will. He is one of the best Korean ballad singers for me and I especially look forward to all his new songs… blame it on Love 119! This is such a sweet song and it is definitely going to go on my playlist!

Anyway, there is a cute story in the video and it features my favorite girl IU!!! IU is really really cute! and I always love it when she acts in a video or in a drama. I reckon in case she gives up singing, she can be an actress. But please don’t give up singing! kk ย I love this kid since I saw her youtube videos and her first song Mia. And she is very lovable! And yes MBLAQ fans would also be delighted to see that Lee Joon is in the video. I’m not so much of an Lee Joon fan as I prefer G.O.. kk

The video’s story is cute and lovable and something that I can’t help but smile after I watched it. Though K-will does not appear on this video, it’s his song, so I am just happy to listen to his voice.

Oh and as a bonus… here is the video of IU’s dance in the video… kk.. I think this is a practice time.. cute cute IU!

Dream High Flash Mob

I love to watch Flash Mobs!

Though I know all of it was planned beforehand but it’s very exciting to watch.

Today as I watched the last episode of Dream High.. I was so excited to see the flash mob dance.

I’m not even finish watching it but I needed to make the post! kk I love flash mobs! kk

Spot Miss A if you can! another cameo! love this drama really!!

Though I am a little sad that this drama is ending. It’s the one (during this season) that I’ve really watched without missing an episode. Sigh.. well everything happy has it’s end… ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish there was a second season.. but one with a story you can compare to this!

IU’s Galazy S Commercials

This girl is really pretty and very talented!!! I liked her ever since her debut!! She has a nice sweet voice that could melt your heart… and she’s now infamous for her 3 high notes!

And she looks very dainty and pretty in these commercials!

IU has become the new model for Samsung’s Galaxy S.

Aww.. so cute…

And I really.. badly want this phone!!! kk… how come Korean smart phones have very good features!! grrrr…

Good Day ์ข‹์€ ๋‚  – IU

The new IU music video is out! I love this girl since I saw hear singing all those acoustic tracks, she’s absolutely talented and her voice is really unique!

She is back with her new track called Good Day (์ข‹์€ ๋‚ ).

For her new album, she has changed her concept, showing everyone that she has now turned into a lady! ๐Ÿ™‚ The song gives you a retro kind of feel. And I love the vintage concept with her clothes.. its definitely something different. I think the kind of clothes she wore in the MV will be in the fashion scene one of these days! kk I also love her eye make-up. The message of the song is different from all those songs she had before. I think it’s nice as she is trying to re-invent herself and do away with the cute little image she had. Well she is still cute in this video, but the grown-up kind of cute. The one thing I don’t like about it though is the dance routine.. kk it looks like another idol dance routine. Sorry IU.. I like your music, but I don’t like the dance routines, I would prefer you would grow to be a singer like Baek Ji Young who could do a pop as well as a ballad music.

Would I want a parrot for a pet… hmm it might be too dangerous because it might get me busted! ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking forward to more of IU soon!
