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.

Flower Boy Next Door’s Last Week

I can’t believe it!!! This is week is the last week ofย Flower Boy Next Door (์ด์›ƒ์ง‘ ๊ฝƒ๋ฏธ๋‚จ).

Flower-Boy-Next-Door-Poster-3

I wouldn’t get to see Ke-Geum or Go Kyung Pyo who exactly looks and sounds like Choi Siwon!

I know I haven’t posted much on the blog but I religiously watch out for this drama… well maybe i don’t have time to watch all 40 minutes of it, but I do watch out for the recaps! Yes, I am still busy but i succumb to one indulgence, which is this drama.

flower boy next door

I love this drama! It’s the last installment of TVN’s Flower Boy Series. Oh TVN, you’re a cable channel but your dramas are so wonderful! The drama PD’s they have are absolute geniuses! Most of their dramas are hits on my book, especially the Flower Boy series. There is not one that I did not like. I like this because it’s something that is very easy to watch, yet it’s something that is close to reality. I like that they do not follow the usual rich chaebol falls in love with a poor girl story line (though there is a chaebol in the story but it’s not following the same pattern). I like that they aren’t afraid to deal with an issues that are real and that really happen and I like that they throw a story line to incorporate a lesson which most teens can relate to.

flower-boy-next-door-9

go kyung pyo

Park Shin Hye and Yoon Shi Yoonย could’ve fooled me to thinking they were really together! haha that’s how their chemistry works! I think, this is the best pairing Yoon Shi Yoon has had over the years. I really liked him in Kim Tak Goo.. In Me Too, Flower, he was funny but looked so young for the character. But this one, I could swear he is the perfect person to play Ke-guem!!! ย I also love Park Shin Hye here. I think is the the best drama that I have seen her in. I love that she can Go Gok Mi’s character come to life. And Go Kyung Pyo… from the time I saw him on SNL where he played Siwon doppelgรคngerย I like him. And now after Flower Boy Next Door, I totally think he sound the same as Siwon!!! Someone to look forward too.. and his acting is not that bad either.

That all said, I am going to be sad when this drama ends tomorrow. I hope I can find another as fun and deep as this drama.

Thank you Dok Mi, Ke Geum, Dong Hoon and Jin Rak for adding color to Monday and Tuesday drama. TVN keep this good dramas coming!!

Bonus, bonus!!! KE GEUM’S PANDA DANCE! Now who wouldn’t love this drama!!!

Of Hiatus and the Joongki Fever

Hello!!! OMG!! I so miss writing on this blog.. I can’t believe it’s been weeks since I last wrote on my blog. I do enjoy writing but the new semester has started and I do have to pay attention with my job sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚

Hehe.. but over the time I’ve been missing, there was one thing — or should I say person — who was keeping me company! It’s him!

Haha.. if you have been lurking in this blog for a long time, you will know that I like this man soo much! And it would not be a wonder why I got caught up with the Song Joongki fever!

I swear this guy is getting popular everyday! hahaha.. especially now with Nice Guy and Wolf Boy showing at the same time. Joongki is every where!! Haha.. He is not just Yeorim anymore! I am so happy everyone is recognizing his talents finally and not just that pretty boy image. This is finally his big break in the industry.

The only thing probably that I have indulge myself in these few weeks was watching episodes of Nice Guy. I swear this drama is killing me! I am more a fan of romcoms but this melodrama hit the right spot! But sorry no spoilers, will be writing about it in another post — when the drama is finished. But I think I could say I started to watch it for Joongki but now I’m watching it because is a worthy drama. Ahh why are you ending next week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyhow… because I have caught with the Joongki bug, I am spamming pics of him when he had a photoshoot in the Philippines. I actually forgot I had these photos and I never posted them on my blog.. Anyway, I’m back to post as much as I can. Ending hiatus with the Joongki fever!! Kya ~~~ so handsome!!!

Song Joong Ki — Nice Guy Pic Spam

I haven’t been paying attention to too much dramas recently (Reply 1997 ended and I haven’t been watching too much Kdrama). These days, I’m busy keeping up with all the English series new seasons and premiers.

But I do watch one drama because of Song Joongki!!!

Now this is not a recommendation post but rather a pic spam post. Though I like the drama’s story and Joongki devious character, I will be waiting for the drama to end before I can recommend it.

So here are the many faces of ย Song Joongki in Nice Guy.

Innocent Joongki

Serious Joongki

Smirking Joongki

Sexy Back!

Smiling Joongki

Say Ahhh

Cute Joongki

Saranghae โค โค โค

 

This guy is really really handsome! I was talking to a Korean friend yesterday and she said he is handsome beyond words. His skin is even better compared to all the other actresses in Korea! Omg!

I’m pretty impressed with him in Nice Guy! On top of that he is very very handsome!

Hope you like it!

Hoya’s Dancing to Deux (from Answer Me 1997)

I know Answer Me 1997 (Reply 1997) has ended but i still can’t get over it and I haven’t watched too much drama because of it (except for Nice Guy).

I’ve been rewatching several episodes and I forgot that I didn’t post this on my blog. Well better late than never! haha

It’s Hoya of Infinite (who plays Jun Hee in the drama) dancing to Deuxย ๋‚˜๋ฅผ ๋Œ์•„๋ด (Turn Around and Look at Me).

Dancing machine Hoya!! Daebak! I know he dances well among all the Infinite members.. and I think I like him more now than L! lol but Sunggyu’s still number one!

Hoya was also good for this drama, especially since it’s his first drama and to play such a role as he did (no spoilers first, will be doing a recommendation later!) is commendable, especially from an idol!

Will be watching out for more of Hoya! kya~~ ^_^

Seo Inguk and Jeong Eunji perform All For You @ MCountdown

Quick post…

I can’t get over this song.. hahaha.. maybe it’s because I’ve liked it before, or maybe because I’m going crazy over the drama, or maybe because I love this couple so much (my obsession these days haha) !!

Oh Seo Inguk! I just love your voice!

Anyway, Seo Inguk and Jeong Eunji perform All For You at MCountdown.

Sigh 2 more episodes before Reply 1997 will end… nooooo!!!

Just the Way We Love – Jeong Eunji and Seo Inguk (MV)

OMG!! They released part 2 of the OST of Answer Me 1997 (Reply 1997 Love Story Part 2). ย And this time, compared to the happy sounding ballad All For You, it’s a slower ballad.

I didn’t expect them to release the song this fast, I thought they would be releasing the song a little bit before the finale.. I think maybe they did it because of the popularity of the drama. Oh drama how I love thee! The song actually sounds quite nice, though I’m not really sure about the lyrics. But Eunji’s voice and Seo Inguk’s voices sound really good together. Well with Seo Inguk.. there is not doubt I like his voice and his songs. I just like this kid period!!!

The video contains spoilers of episode 12. That was the best episode so far! Seo Inguk is pretty amazing as he does Yungjae’s confession. It broke my heart to pieces when I watched that part. I honestly can’t wait what will happen next and who will Shiwon end up with. Though maybe the answer is obvious, but the write has a good way of teasing us! I can’t wait!!! This is another cable drama I’m hooked to again! ^_^

All For You – Cool (Lyrics)

I am going crazy over Reply 1997. And I am going crazier because they released a remake of Cool’s All For You!

This song is one of my favorites from Cool. It’s one of their slow songs. If ย I am not mistaken it’s from their 5th album. Actually I like this song better than Aloha. I wanted to post this a long time ago, but there was no MV for this song, so I settled with posting Aloha. But as this song is getting more popular because of Reply 1997, I decided it’s time to post it.

Like I said there is no MV of this song, so I am settling for this live performance clip. I found better copies on naver but i don’t know how to post it here, so this youtube vid will do.

I really like hearing this song! It’s very sweet.. And it’s easy to sing a long with. I will not be putting a critic on this song, because no matter what someone says at the end I will still say I still love it!

Because it’s quite old, I could not find any good romanizations so I made on of my own. Please credit: chipskjaa@wordpress if you use it! ย Thanks!

All For You ย – Translation

Already itโ€™s been a few days, but you donโ€™t call
Do you know that in a while, itโ€™s my birthday?
Thoughtlessly, time only passes,
Instead of hatred, with a worried heart,
I went to your house to see you,
And I saw you, who smiled for me

Honestly, I thought a lot
I canโ€™t do anything for you.
Even though Iโ€™m not perfect, and I donโ€™t have anything,
Will you accept me?

Itโ€™s only 4 U, just wanna be 4 U
You? You just have to stay by my side like always,
And even if Iโ€™m born again, Iโ€™ll only look up to you.
The future I will spend with you, just for you.

You might not know, but it was a bit hard,
Am I the one that matches with you?
Even though Iโ€™m not, and somebody else is,
Iโ€™ll throw away that thought. ]

Itโ€™s only 4 U,
Just wanna be 4 U
You? You just have to stay by my side like always,
And even if Iโ€™m born again, Iโ€™ll only look up to you. LOVE
In my little heart, oh love.

Even though Iโ€™m trapped in your scent forever,
I can be happy, just for you, just for you.
I canโ€™t get everything in the world,
But Iโ€™ll promise this to you,
Iโ€™ll be the one made for you.
Itโ€™s only for you,

We canโ€™t be happy forever, one day there will be pain,
But, if we love each other like now, and look up to each other,
There will be no problems.

All For You – Hangeul

Seo In Guk and Eunji (A Pink) Remakes Cool’s All For You

I am getting addicted to the drama Reply 1997 (Answer Me 1997)! I can’t believe how good this drama is and how the writers were weaving the story of the main characters Yunjae and Shiwon..

Anyway, Seo In Guk and Jung Eunji (A Pink) have released a song for this drama (the OST is called Love Story). It’s a remake of Cool’s All For You.

The Song

When I saw the title of the song, I was like… wait a minute is this Cool’s song? And I was not mistaken! And how nice this remake is! It’s originally sang by group called Cool (the same group that sang Woman on the Beach). It’s one of my favorite Cool songs. It was one of their slow songs. Although Seo In Guk and Jung Eunji play the main characters in this drama, they are singers first before they became actors. So I am not surprised that they performed a good remake of the song.

I love their voices together. If you aren’t familiar with Eunji, she is actually the lead singer of the group A Pink. Also, she is the one who did a duet with Yoseob (Lovely Day). I think she has a really sweet voice. I liked her voice when she did that duet with Yoseob. It was a very cute and bubbly song. On the other hand, I love love love Seo Inguk. I’ve been impressed by him ever since he won Super Star K. He can really sing! And I like his voice. So add them both together and you get the picture why I like this song! Oh and did I mention the chemistry between them? They make watching Reply 1997 a very pleasant experience!

Oh, and I’ve read somewhere they will be releasing a second part for the finale… I can’t wait!! I love this couple!!!

The Video

This drama is making me crazy and seeing the scenes in the video is making me crazy! Ahaha… if you haven’t watched it there are a few spoilers. I super love this couple and I super love the way the writers are putting together the story of the drama. But I will save that for another post!

For the lyrics: please see this post..

Final Verdict: This remake was done beautifully. I think it’s the perfect song for the couple in the drama.

Nice Guy (์ฐจ์นธ๋‚จ์ž) Teaser is Out!

I have work tomorrow but that does not stop me from posting this! I should really be going to bed now!

But OMG!!! The trailer for Song Joongki‘s new drama is out.. actually it was posted 2 days ago! Grrr.. I should have checked my youtube subscriptions!

OMG! OMG!! I can’t imagine him playing a bad guy! (sorry for all the exclamation marks, but as you can see I’m very very excited!)

Song Joongki will be playing the lead character Maru in the drama ์ฐจ์นธ๋‚จ์ž (Nice Guy). His role will be a good guy who was betrayed by his girlfriend in the past. He decides to change his ways to become a bad guy and get his revenge. His co-actors for this drama are Moon Chae-won and Park Shi-yeon. Oh and by the way, this is the drama where Lee Gwangsoo (from Running Man) is casted too.

Like I said I really could not imagine him being a bad guy! Maybe because his roles in the past required him to be the cute guy.. who at times can be serious (oh Yeorim how we miss you!). But this will be a first and I am quite excited to see the different side to him. This would prove his ability as an actor! I’m not very sure though about Moon Chae-won. I am not very quite convinced with her roles in the past. But you never know maybe it would change.

But I can’t wait for it for this drama.. ย I can’t wait for Song Joongki’s transformation….

From this:

To this:

Nice Guy will be premiering after Gaksital.
