Recommended Drama – Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Ok so I haven’t recommended something in a long time.. but I have to write about this before I get stuck up again with lots of work related stuff to do! And because the drama is still airing.

Actually though I am not posting a lot of articles in the blog I have been up to date with the dramas, though not so much with Kpop and variety shows anymore. And this drama is what I’ve been looking forward to see every week!

Most of the dramas I watch are from the big Korean stations, I don’t usually watch dramas on Korean cable because they’re not so much popular. I think the only cable dramas I watched were Manny and Joseon X files. With Korean dramas I tend to stick with the mainstream ones. But I started to watch this out of the whim for the ever so popular Scheduler from 49 Days. Yes, because of the Jung Il Woo, I watched Flower Boy Ramyun Shop!

I’ve always like him since I saw Nae Sarang (My Love) the movie he starred with Lee Yeon Ji among others. He used to have little baby fat that time though, but he was cute. I didn’t even know who the other characters were, except for Lee Ki Woo. This is his come back drama after enlisting for the military — but I only remember him from the movie The Classic.

Flower Boy Ramyun shop is a story about a girl, Yang Eun Bi who struggles through passing a civil service exam. While her fortune about her exams told, the fortuneteller says she will be meeting the one destined for her and she will hear bells when she does. One day, she accidentally meets a handsome but arrogant Cha Chi Soo and she hears bells. Eventually she ends up asking him to date, only to find out (to her humiliation) that he is still in high school. Later we find out that Eunbi’s dad has a ramyun shop but she does not inherit it but instead was given to her dad to a lazy Choi Kang Hyuk. And so Eunbi ends up working for Kang Hyuk and so does Cha Chi Soo.

I actually thought that this was another simple drama, with a story line that contained a lot of cliches, but as I watch the story unfold, its full of twists that I would never have guessed. The script is also commendable as it gives you an excited and giddy feeling thinking about someone you love. I think it’s story, though some parts I’ve seen in other dramas already, has a lot of depth to it. It’s not just seeing a bunch of flower boys and screaming your heart out. Every week I couldn’t wait what’s going to happen next. They’ve got me anticipating for the next episode.

And the biggest plus in the drama for me is Lee Ki Woo!! Like I said I faintly remember him in The Classic. He was the guy who married the heroines mom. But I think the army did good to him! I knew he always has a towering body like a gentle giant, but he looks absolutely fantastic in this drama! And he fits the role perfectly. Yang Eunbi.. if you don’t want the pillar can I have him instead! I love that his character is the dependable man who seems to be lazy on the outside, but in fact is so calculating and smart on the inside! ย I want a man like that! ^_^

This drama isn’t a boring one as there are a lot of jokes and characters that make it a nice show to watch. The sub characters add a little more flavor to the ramyun that the main actors have cooked. If this was my ramyun I would give it a 4.5 out of 5… The 0.5 ย deduction is because there are some cliches that are there.. some twists that I could have guessed but kudos to the writers for giving a new light to it.

This ramyun is better served hot so as a sample, I give you a song from the OST. It’s called Loving Loving by Yoon Sae Ha.

And as a side dish I give you some pic spam of Lee Ki Woo!!! kk ๐Ÿ™‚

I Can’t Wait for Skip Beat!!!

Ok so I know some of you may have seen the trailer already as it has been uploaded on youtube for sometime now. But I really really can’t wait for it.

Skip Beat is actually one of ย my favorite anime and manga. It’s one that I have watched for a long time, though unfortunately I haven’t been paying close attention to it now. I like it because Ren Tsurugaย is to me the ideal man! (though this kind of men you only meet in mangas, i’m not sure if they really exist!! kk). Also, the story of this anime/manga is quite interesting to me.

I was really happy when it was picked up for a live action adaption which was then supposed to be starred by Ariel Lin and Jerry Yan. I’m not much of a Jerry Yan fan (though I have to admit he is getting more handsome the older he gets), but I like Ariel Lin. She is by far a very talented Taiwanese actress, at least in my opinion (i love how she can change characters but I love her the most in ISWAK).

When news of the change in the actors came, I was a bit disappointed that Ariel Lin was not going to be part of the project. But the disappointment was replaced by happiness when I learned Siwon was going to play Ren Tsuruga!! Wee… Just perfect!

So I can’t wait for this to be shown!!

Of Lee Seung Gi and the Gumiho

I don’t usually play around with my blog, I am just contented with posting stuff about Asian music. But today, I think I’ve done the best revamping my blog has seen since the time I started it! And I am indeed very pleased!

Very pleased because I have now made Lee Seunggi as the header of my blog. And the picture that you see is one of my favorites. If you watch 2 days and 1 night, I’m pretty sure you will recognize this picture! The angel without wings.

So why suddenly Lee Seunggi. One I have been constantly reminded of him in my class! Most of my students like him a lot, especially the women! He is the perfect husband they say!Oh yes, our Seunggi is a kind soul. He’s not just kind, he is smart and he can sing and he does best at everything he does. I sound like a crazed fan… but I think I am. I am a certified Airen! for those who does not know, that’s the name of his fan club!

Another reason why I thought of him when making my header was because finally (after ages and ages of waiting!) My Girlfriend is a 9 Tailed Fox is going to be shown on TV!! Well TV in my country that is. True I have seen the drama, but I can’t wait to see it again, though this time I won’t be hearing his voice because it would be dubbed. But at least it will be shown in the TV network I prefer. So I am confident it will be dubbed properly (bato bato sa langit ang tamaan wag magalit).

I saw the promotional clip and I can’t wait for it. Though I am guessing it will be shown during a very late timeslot (I hope it replaces My Princess.. kk sorry). I think I will be watching out from me. Anything to see my favorite Hoi Hoi couple.

So why this drama and not My Princess, well there’s Lee Seunggi and then there’s No Min Woo for one (oh the biases here they come!). But kidding aside, I like the story because it was a different Gumiho story. I’ve had my fair share of seeing Gumiho stories in Kdramas, but none would compare to the love story found in this drama. Though it seemed predictable at first, I mean we know Dae Woong (the human) would fall for the lovable Gumiho, but at the latter part there were puzzles you had to discover to understand the whole plot. This drama worked for me just fine! Oh and not to mention the OST! Love the songs, especially the Gumiho teardrops song, makes me feel a little sentimental.

And who would ever forget this song! Losing My Mind

Lee Seunggi joahaeyo saranghaeyo! kk

So I’ll stop here.. gotta go back to watching 2 days and 1 night and more Lee Seunggi! kk

Goong Pic Spam

I know I know this drama was shown ages ago… but I still love it and it has to be my all time favorite.

A student of mine spoke nonstop of this drama the whole day! kk Actually she was watching the drama for the nth time but she says she always gets giddy with Goong (Princess Hours).

So I had nothing to do and I looked through my old files for my Goong pictures… and I decided to do some pic spamming.. kk…

Fell in Love with the characters in the drama…

 

The Crown Prince….

The Crown Princess (Yoon Eun Hye is very cute here!)…

The Original Crown Prince (who was recently discharged from the army! ooh can’t wait for his next project!!)….

The Other girl.. the Ballet Dancer (I used to hate Song Ji Hyo but I so love her now! Long Live the Monday Couple!!! kk)

Some liked the Shin and Chaekyung Couple

While others prefer Chaegyung to be with Yul

But in the end… Chaegyung chose Shin…

 

And got married… oh what a lovely couple!

Some other pics… I wanted this stuffed toy?? stuffed whatever… kk

And this is probably the most romantic scene in the drama for me!!!

And who could ever forget the lovable teddy bears!!!

I could watch this drama over and over and over again!!!

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!

My Favorite Milky Couple ^_^

The drama that I am really crazy right now is Dream High.

However, I am not a fan of the Samdook + Hyemi + Jingook love triangle. I would prefer the Milky Couple!! Jason (played by 2PM’s Wooyoung) and Pilsuk (played by IU) really look good together..

Long Time No See.. Ep 9

Profile Pictures!!! Who’s phone is this??.. Ep 12

Beware of Samdong.. Ep 13

Pilsuk Sings To Jason.. EP 15

Kiss Scene… Ep 15

I found some clips on yt that I wanted to share.. ย these are must-see scenes, so you better watch them before yt takes them down!! kk

This is drama is one that I would recommend to someone who is looking for a light drama to see. It’s a mixture of the elements of Korean drama with a hint of Glee. The characters are adorable and the songs are really nice. When you watch it, you also develop an appreciation for the old Korean songs as well as how they train an idol. It let’s us in the world of the idol groups and understand them better.

I would be really sad when this drama ends! part 2 anyone?

Kim Bum in Philippines! :D

So most of you may have seen this news on the Korean entertainment sites. I actually saw this news on TV yesterday.. but I didn’t have the time to put it up last night so I’m doing it tonight! and I was still waiting for the pictures ^^

Kim Bum visited the Philippines yesterday (he arrived at 11 AM in Manila). He was here to shoot a CF with a local actress (Maja Salvador) for RC Cola. Oh lucky her! and she’s really one lucky girl because the news that I saw said that Kim Bum thought she was pretty!

I am not really into him during the Kkotboda Namja days ( i miss that drama)… I like Kim Hyun Joong better (Ji Hoo). But when I saw the news he looked really good.. but I think he looks too young :D… However since I know a lot of you like him very much… I’m posting the pictures of him visiting the country! Enjoy!

And i found this video on youtube..

Crazy In Love – Ji Sun (OST Shining Inheritance)

Ok so I know it’s too late for me to post this song.. Actually I think I;m lagging way behind my watching dramas. And I just finished watching Shining Inheritance – 2 months after it stopped airing! And the last drama I watched before that was Kkotboda Namja.. grrr.. I’m way to busy these days.

I’m a little tired to put in details the story of the drama so click this site to know about it…

shining inhertance

So anyway I like the drama and I really recommend that you watch it. Though the story is just a typical one – but I think it was worth watching because of the antagonist and because I could not resist Lee Seung Gi’s smile! oh the dimples! (I likes his songs before but I wasn’t really a fan.. but I liked him in this drama so I had to finish the drama!).

If you’ve read my blog you would know that I am a sucker for OST’s and this dramas OST got me again! kikiki ^^. The song sung by Ji Sun (Loveholic) for this drama is my favorite. Though I heard it played over and over again I am not bored of it. And because I like it I’m sharing it!

Crazy In Love (Translation)

I only said it because I wished to smile.
Why cant you understand how I feel?
I promised myself but again, Im crazily in love.
Its gripping me viciously and controlling me.

I am standing where you left
And am still watching you
It hurts so much when will we ever
Become strangers?

my heart cant stop pounding
even as we parted, we still loved each other
it still seems like that now
The pain doesnt wash away
Although I tried several times to endure it,
Its so hard to live day by day without you.
Youre my life.

Words like sorry and goodbye
Why do you hurt me so
I promised myself but again, Im crazily in love
Its gripping me viciously and controlling me.

I am standing where you left
And am still watching you
It hurts so much when will we ever
Become strangers?

my heart cant stop pounding
even as we parted, we still loved each other
it still seems like that now
The pain doesnt wash away
Although I tried several times to endure it,
Its so hard to live day by day without you.
Youre my life.

You, you probably dont know
Little by little, we are
disappearing from you
even if I put you back in my life, because my heart is worn out
Words like love
Are starting to fade away

The pain doesnt wash away
Although I tried several times to endure it,
Its so hard to live day by day without you.
Youre my life.

Kiss – Sandara Ft. CL (with Lee Min Ho)

So I figured most of the Boys over Flower addicts must be missing Lee Min Ho and the other guys. The boys have been busy I guess.. Just a bit of news — Kim Bum has just finished filming his drama after Boys Over Flowers, it called Dream.. then he will be heading off to England to have a photoshoot.. and the he will be coming to the Philippines to be a volunteer (ok fan girls.. you can scream now!) — Kim Hyun Joong has been down with the dreaded swine flu.. and he needs about 15 days to recover, poor Hyun Joong, I hope he gets well — Lee Min Ho just recently filmed a CF with Sandara! And that’s what this post is all about ^^.

The song I’m posting is the full MV of the song Kiss which Sandara sang and this song also features the 2NE1 leader CL. The song is for the CF of Cass Beer of which Lee Min Ho is an endorser. I saw the preview of the MV and I think the MV just came out maybe today. So Lee Min Ho fans, I bet your jealous at Daraย  ^^ — ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹… ย but kidding aside, Dara looked really pretty in the video!

The song was sung by Dara and it features CL. I think Dara is really getting prettier – without any biases.. I think she is the most beautiful in 2NE1 (definitely not biased because CL is my favorite!). This song from what I’ve read has beaten G Dragon’s Heartbreaker in some on the online sites! so Go Dara! ๐Ÿ˜€

If you haven’t seen the CF (teaser video), I’m also posting it here! Enjoy!

Joe Cheng Picture Spam…

This is another request from my sister.. and I’m giving in today because it’s her birthday!

This post is a Joe Cheng pic spam! Aside from Lee Minho, my sister likes Joe Cheng. She started like Joe Cheng when we saw It Started With a Kiss. This drama was aired on Saturday morning’s before and both of us would wake up early just to catch it. I like Joe Cheng but for Taiwanese guys I prefer Mike He ๐Ÿ˜€

So I won’t blabber more and start the spamming!

I couldn’t resist posting these pictures also… Joe Cheng with longer hair! wahahaha!
