Tadaima! Gie-chan is back.

It’s been a long while since I last put something here. But of course, this doesn’t mean I didn’t watch anything. I did! I saw a lot and… I am more convinced that I am a fangirl through and through. I sure hope I can remember all the things I saw.

Just for the purposes of documentation:

Heartstrings. Gyah! I didn’t feel like Go Mi Nam cheated on Hwang Tae Kyung. This was all about Shin Hye and Lee Kung!

Yukan Club. This is the series where I fell in love with Jin.

Bandage. This is the movie where Jin broke my heart.

Atashi no Danshi. Love Maki. Nippoon Banzai and Banzai sauna scenes!!!

Love Shuffle. YAY PANDA!!!


want watch

Omo! The Scheduler is crying! 

I think this picture/person alone is enough reason for me to want to watch 49 days. I hope this show ends already and that Scheduler will have a happy ending… Only then will I actually watch! hahaha

It’s been a long while since I saw a korean series and I must say I’m kinda missing it. This season’s lineup is kinda reminding why I got so addicted to kseries.

Now this series, I think I will really watch! Yes, I am such a Hong sisters fan. I will forever be their fan and will always have a bias with their series. Oh and Cha Seung Won is here!

Ever since Princess Hours, I’ve been a fan of YEH. So if I have time to kill- I will also find time read the recaps of this series. And if this turns out well, I just might watch it.

good intentions

I had every intention to watch it, all of it. But 2o hours spent on watching a series is just a little too much sacrifice for me. Yeah, I couldn’t watch Secret Garden in its entirety. I wanted to do but I think I’m so into other things lately that spending 20 hours in royal bum entertainment became too much.

What I did was speed through it. What that meant is watch Episode 14- 20 in reverse order. hahaha. I liked it. But since it’s not in Japanese, the enthusiasm level was just not that high. What I did like about it was Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin. She was really kick ass in 1 moment then totally kyay-cute in the next!

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

The other thing I liked about it was his version of what Snow White is all about: ” A member of elite class who supervises 7 dwarfs. After another elite member comes and kisses her, she abandons the dwarfs and runs!” hahaha. Good stuff right there.

Maybe someday, I hope someday I can have enough motivation to actually watch this series. I know it’s good its’ just not in my priority list.

Yes. I’m having a hard time watching koreanovelas lately. It might be because I am in the ‘dorama’ mode. But still. I tried watching Mary stayed out all night yesterday and it just didn’t work for me. I also started wathching Rain’s Fugitive/Runawa Plan B, but also to no avail.

I am a fan of Jang Geun Seuk and I really, really admire Moon Geun Yoong. Why is it that I am no the least interested or even excited to watch Mary?! I have all the reasons to watch… well not a lot of reasons. I heard and read somewhere that the story was really bad. It was so out of this world and illogical, watching it won’t make sense. Are these bad reviews the reason why I’m not into it?

Rain, on the other hand, is enough reason to make anyone stay glued to the TV. He is ‘My name is Wain’. The story seems interesting enough but there was so much running around. I got too tired the first few minutes into the series. Plus the fact that I don’t like the lead actress. She was pretty in all the right places, but not to me. Also, yeah, yeah! The second lead was from Home Run! And I loved him there… so why did I skip from Episode 4 to Episode 20? Lack of staying power…

gearing up

– for the ultimate end.

In as much as I LOVED and ADORED watching PK, I know that it all has to stop. Especially now that I should be reviewing. Aish! SO yes, I am once again preparing for the withdrawal that is about to happen. I know that all good things must come to an end- mine just has to come earlier than the others.

If there is really one thing that makes me stick to this drama, it is that it is true to life. I get a high watching them but it also slaps me in the face because it clearly depicts real life. Seung jo remains to be a cold mule and Ha ni persists on being a stupid girl. Falling in love doesn’t really rid you of all the quirks in your personalities. And I love that the series is clearly showing this to viewers. This is one picture of what happens during the “happily ever after’.

You have the good, the bad, the annoying, the frustrating, the sweet. But real life has all this. In as much as I really want to talk about how I am squealing like a mad fangirl, I just wanted to say this. Let the withdrawal begin- again!

it was tooooo good to be true! I mean Baek Seng jo being a goody-goody-sweetie?! It’s just so unlike him!hahaha. But as a fangirl, I still hoped it would be true.6pm PH time, I waited for the 1st wepisode to air in youtube- and I was not disappointed. Armed with print screen, I gleefully took these pics!!!

This picture of “weeded bliss” just doesn’t reflect who you are as a couple. I mean, really… Baek Seung jo being lovey-dovey? If cats can talk, sure. But really… I don’t think so.

Now this…

This is the more accurate presentation of who you are. LOL!!

Ha ni, I feel for you girl!

But you wouldn’t be Ha ni if you didn’t try. So try you did to make him your own version of an English breakfast; of which we know ended like a disaster. But still- he loved your coffee, even if I’m also unsure whether that was really edible.

But he wouldn’t be Baek Seung jo either if he wouldn’t appreciate it, right? You really are sly! You act all cold but when she’s not looking you’re all smiles! Aish!Why do I tolerate you and your smiles?

Ok! I am so gonna a couple shirt-jacket-shoes, whatever it is that you’re trying to advertise! hahaha. I’m gonna buy a couple-anything!!!

But at the end of the day, this is my takehome! Yah, Baek Seung jo!!! It’s really the little things that you do that make Ha ni and me fall in love with you!

I know that this episode and the other eps are like so fanservice, but I’m not complaining. Bring in all the fanservice!!! I’d gladly take it, any day. And yes, in spite that I only knew 3% of the Korean that you used in this ep, I think I understood 90% of what happened. If that ain’t love, I don’t know what is. hahaha! Tomorrow can’t come too soon- for ep2!!!

-that was elicited from me because of this picture! Clearly, my PK addiction is still very much on high. hahaha.

I am currently in the office, trying to make a decent living when I received an email prompt about this and I obediently looked at it!. Big mistake. How can I focus now when I’m gonna always have this picture in my head for the entire day?!

It seems that my PK addiction has not really ended. Well, giselle, it can’t really end when you’re cellphone is full of PK goodies! Anyways, I am practically squealing right now because the teaser for the youtube version is out and gyyaaaahhh!!! I can barely contain my fangirl squeal!

The best thing about this is that they’re gonna air this on November 2. And what day is it today?!!! It’s already November 1!!! I must have lost track of dates and times because I was surprised when I realized that I can watch this tomorrow! Yes, tomorrow!!!

I will most probably have a silly smile plastered on my face- for the entire day! And most probably my boss and other officemates will ask me what’s up with me. hahhaa

Something tells me that the shirt is too big for Jung So min, but it doesn’t matter. All I know now is that I AM SO GETTING THAT COUPLE SHIRT – for myself. hahaha. But I’ll never know maybe I just need to buy that shirt so I can give the other to that someone else. nyehehe.

In all honesty, I was never a fan of Kim Hyun Joong. When I actually found out that he was gonna have a concert here in PH, I was not even interested to know when and where it was gonna be. I admit I even asked my friend who KHJ is. The name that got stuck in my head is Ji hoo. But now, but now…

I still don’t consider myself a fan.

But I am seriously in love with Baek Seung-jo! I don’t know how that fits in the universe but I’m quite content with it. I think if a girl wouldn’t melt if smiled at like that by him- then cursed be you for you are a stone!

It is gonna be a long 24 hours from now till 7KST…

very afraid

It has been a while since I last wrote anything… And I must admit I am very afraid to write another one. PK has ended and I don’t know how to end this series as well. All I know is that I loved it and I am now trying hard to move on with my life. And it has been so hard…

How can I forget you? How can I when my new phone is named Baek Seung Jo and my wallpaper is Hani and Seung Jo and my ringing tone is the OST for this series? How? Tell me…

How can I when all I can remember about you is this scene of uber cuteness and utter delight?But I know that all things must come to an end. You even had your own party. I am so gonna miss you…

Ok, yes, I lied.

In spite of me saying I would not lurk around forum sites… I was not able to keep my word. I spent precious hours catching up on what I missed about PK.

And now I CANNOT WAIT for this Thursday episode. Gyah!!! Finally- the rain/confession scence!!! gyahhh!! And since I will be out of town on that day and the place I’m staying has wifi- I just might see this episode live!!!
