I haven’t been a huge follower of K-dramas (I’ve seen less than 10 my whole life), although that will change as I’m on a rabid download spree. Recommendation welcome!

In 2009, I’ve watched Cinderella Story (not sure why I even bothered), IRIS (very entertaining, although the last few eps were a huge let down; they either should of added a few more episodes to flesh out the story, or end it earlier) and You’re Beautiful (wasn’t going to watch this as it looked too “teen” and “cute” for my usual tastes, but so many people recommended it. Good recommendation! Park Shin Hye ^_^).

I am about to begin Return of Iljimae, and plan to watch Shining Inheritance after, since it has won so many drama awards in 09.

As I understand little Korean, the shows that I can watch it limited to the ones that are available on youtube/download with subs.  Family Outing is my no.1 variety show.  I’ve been a huge follower of the first series of couples of We Got Married, but interest has died down.  MNET Scandal seemed to have some promise, in at least we can expect to have crazy fangirl complaints; but that was a letdown too.  Other shows I watched/followed include Intimate Note, G7, Star King, 2NE1/Big Bang TV.  I wish there was a site which keeps track of all the episodes and where I could watch/download them…

Looking ahead to 2010
The Return of the Jedi Jaebum. Comebacks/LPs from:Taeyang, Big Bang, 2NE1, 1TYM, Se7en (basically YG family), Tasha/T, May Doni, Hwanhee, Hyori, BoA.  More material from the many newcomers of 09, such as BEAST, MBLAQ, 4minute, Untouchable, f(x).  Less freaky gifts from netizens to their idols.  Return of X-man alumni HaHa and Kim Jong Min. Movies/dramas/variety/eye candy which feature either Park Shin Hye, Ha Ji Won, Jun Ji Hyun, Park Bo Young, or better yet, all of them together. Anything with Kim Sooro – God of Study is a good start for 2010. New Cha Tae Hyun movie?

And of course, a new blog site. Damn will I ever be able to make it?

2010 – let’s hope for a even more exciting year for k-entertainment!


i have a white wish for boa

29 Oct

BoA released her PV for ~white wishes~ today.

Nothing extravagent, but she looks stunning! She really can make any hairstyle look good~

But what’s with the sudden costume change in the last 20 seconds? She’s wearing the same jacket as the one Ha Ji Won wore at Tablo’s wedding. 2 of my fav ladies sharing clothes?

weekend wrap: tablo x kang hye jung

26 Oct

Just came back from my short break in SanYa (holiday resort place South of China).  Censorship situation is for real in China, couldn’t get on wordpress, facebook, blogspot, livejournals (basically, any blog or networking sites).  The resort I stayed at was beautiful, may post some pics up later.

Anyway, so I finally got catch up a bit on whats been going on in the world of kpop (althoughits only been 4 days!).  Tablo and Kang Hye Jung had their private wedding which many A-list stars attended.  A couple of my fav pics:
