Where To Start ?

I honestly wanted to write about a lot of things, but somehow, I don't know where to start. It's not that I am feeling lazy today, its just that my brain is not working properly (as always) lol! Maybe a little later or by tomorrow, I will be able to write about Kim Hyun Joong and "the other person" that I was talking about plus the reality show that I've been watching everyday over and over and over again! That's the truth! Since I've seen this show, that's all I watch everyday till I fall asleep. I don't know why! Because of "this show" I have met new online friends that's addicted to it and "them" too! Will tell you more about it later. I will recharge my brain and hopefully something good will come out of it soon! :) Later peeps!

Why I Love Boys ...

… Over Flowers? It's because it led me to watching Kim Hyun Joong and another one of a kind human being plus a Korean reality show that I have re-watched and will be re-watching probably for the rest of my life... who and what? I will definitely write another entry for that... :)

Anyway, Kim Hyun Joong or KHJ, as I would refer to him in my future entries, was one of the F4s in Boys Over Flowers. He caught my attention not much of his acting but his good looks :P. As I have mentioned, he is prettier than most, if not, some girls out there :) Even my husband asked me if HE IS A SHE! Lol

Since I am the laziest blogger in the world, here’s the link to KHJ’s bio on wikipedia for you to read :)

I've Seen A Lot of KDrama But ...

Yes, during the duration of my being a bum/jobless, I've watched a lot of Korean Drama, however, I don't think I will post all of them here...laziness attack! LOL... Anyways, there’s this one drama that really led me to one of the most important “discoveries” of my life! naks! LOL I am talking about the drama series Boys Over Flowers or Boys Before Flowers…

I think this was based on a manga story. Here’s the description from

Kim Joon, Kim Bum, Lee Min Ho, Koo Hye Sun and Kim Hyun Joong
Boys Over Flowers is one of the biggest Koreandrama hits of our time, sweeping ratings and awards across Asia in 2009 and2010. This Korean take on the popular Japanese manga of the same name, tacklescomplex issues involving outcasts, socio-economic disparity, family, love, andfriendship. Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning storelocated near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa High School. After saving aboy from jumping off the roof of Shin Hwa High School, Jan Di is admitted intothe school on a swimming scholarship. At school, Jan Di tries to avoidconfrontation with the four richest and most spoiled boys known as the F4,because she knows what happens to those that stand against them. However, whenJan Di's friend, Oh Min Ji, accidentally gets ice cream on the leader of theF4's shoes, she's forced to declare war on the leader of the F4, Goo Joon Pyo.What will happen though, when she falls in love with someone from the F4 andGoo Joon Pyo starts feeling something for her too? Will the love triangledisrupt F4 and change their lives forever? Get ready for addictive drama,romance and comedy at it best.

I totally fell in love with these boys! They are so handsome (one of them is prettier than a girl lol). This drama has a Japanese and Taiwanese version, however, Korean version is the best for me. It was not boring unlike the Taiwanese version that I couldn’t finish watching the 1st episode, not to mention that Korean version of the F4 is waaaaaaaaayyyyyy gorgeous than the Taiwan F4 boys. Sorry people of Taiwan, that’s just my honest and humble opinion.

Honestly, I've seen this drama countless times and every time I watch it, I still cry a river and laugh like there's no tomorrow! :) To think that I keep putting this on the back burner lol... just got so curious coz on alone, there's over 1000 reviews and was rated 4-5 stars out of 5. I will let you know in my next entry why this series led me to one of the most important “discoveries” of my life :)

After Secret Garden This ...

Since I fell in love with the quirky Hyun Bin in the drama Secret Garden, I "googled"  him and checked out all the show that he's been on and it led me to this... "My Lovely Sam Soon/My Name is Kim Sam Soon", another one of my fave Korean drama series...It was aired in 2005 so Hyun Bin is much younger here and much "meatier" :) FYI, he intentionally (according to some articles online) lost at least 7-8 kg for his role in Secret Garden and lost even more through the duration of the series because he's only getting about 2-3 hours of sleep. Meanwhile, Kim Sun Ah, her leading lady in My Lovely Sam Soon, put on some pounds for her role. 

Anyway, here's a short summary of MLSS:

Kim Sun Ah, Hyun Bin, Jung Ryeo Won, Daniel Henney

Secret Garden Korean Drama

Here it is folks, my second Kdrama and so far one of my favorites... this was aired, I believe in 2010 and became so popular. "Secret Garden" starring Hyun Bin (my first korean actor crush - lol) and the pretty Ha Ji Won - It is  a romantic comedy and fantasy series...It has 20 episodes (which I also finished watching in less than 24 hours :P) Can't help it, I was a bum at that time lol 

I am a bit lazy right now, I don't feel like telling the whole story (sorry about that lol), so here's a brief description of this series (courtesy of

In this fantasy, romantic comedy, Secret Garden follows rich CEO Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin) and poor stunt woman Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won) as they switch lives and learn how the other half lives - literally. Kim Joo Won has always had everything handed to him, and he makes no apologies for being wealthy and arrogant. Gil Ra Im is an orphan who works hard at every film, even though her face will never be seen by audiences. When the two of them meet, Gil Ra Im cannot stand Kim Joo Won's haughty manner, and he cannot stand Gil Ra Im's poverty. However, a mystical force changes the two of them when they switch bodies and lives. Each are affected by the other's circumstances and realize just how different their worlds are. Also starring in this hit drama are Yoon Sang Hyun (of the drama Queen of Housewives), as Joo Won's celebrity cousin Oska, and Kim Sa Rang (a former Miss Korea), as Oska's ex-girlfriend and Joo Won's potential bride through arranged marriage. The witty dialogue and sizzling chemistry between the actors have captivated audiences week after week, making it one of the hit dramas for the year.
