Kim Jong Kook and Song Ji Hyo booted off “Running Man” without notice:…2016 just sucks man…

My lovely Spartace…how I will miss your chemistry on-screen

 

 

Yesterday was just simply a horrid day for fellow runners such as myself. Many are left in a tragic state over this news, and I felt that I myself needed to contribute my thoughts on this matter, and hopefully help others who are torn over the news.

Thoughts: Friendships?

My life exactly...Credit: Link

You know who you are hahaha…Credit: Link

Have you ever sat down for a second and thought to yourself: “Who are my friends?”

If you’re thinking of that question now, who did you think of? Was it the people you saw on a daily basis due to work or school, or was it the ones who you’ve rarely seen since ‘life’ happened, but still chat with on a regular basis?

Current trek with “Fall In Love With Me” (愛上兩個我) [EP 3-11] – IT’S GETTING BETTER, HONEST!!!

Haha another poster pic! This one looks cuter >//<

Haha another poster pic! This one looks cuter >//<

Soooo, I am back with my updated/current trek with “Fall In Love With Me” (愛上兩個我). We have just reached the third-way mark (does that make sense people?? Does it??) of the drama and can I just say that initially, perhaps I was too quick to judge this drama. Sure, the drama is not exactly the most amazing one I’ve watched in a while, but the drama is definitely having those moments where it just suddenly shines through.

So, this post is just here to let you guys know how I’m finding the drama so far, and whether or not I would consider following the drama to the end. Also, this isn’t exactly a recap post (I can’t write proper recaps, trust me! I don’t believe that I am worthy of it!) but I can’t guarantee that I will avoid spoilers. Of course, I will try to not say too much, but no guarantees can be made here hehe!

Note: Just as a fun fact, both my Chinese and legal name are used as characters in the drama! Helen is my legal name, and Huan Huan (歡歡) is my Chinese name. It gets real weird when both are in the same scene; I feel as if they are all calling me LOLOL!

*clears throat* So, apart from the slightly awkward fun fact, let’s get busy!

I finally return to…lawsuits and break ups…WHAT the hell??!

Pfft, I wish LOL!

Pfft, I wish LOL!

I am finally returning!!! Hooray!

Oh my, how I’ve have missed you all! *Kisses and hugs thrown everywhere* Exams are now all complete, essays have all been handed in and I’m slowly gaining my sleeping routine back (staying up for five consecutive nights is the worst sort of pain to ever experience. Trust me, DON’T DO IT!!! ><) So, I’ll be slightly slow, but I’ll get there.

The purpose of this post is simple – it’s just going to be short and sweet, and it’s just a way to say “Thank You for waiting” and that “Yes, I’m still alive!”

“Hwang Jin Yi” review: Wow, it hit me just as hard as the first time…

I am a guilty victim of the “rewatch whole Kdramas whilst procrastinating” illness. And I did exactly that just two days ago when I should have concentrated on finishing off some homework due the following morning.

In one night too.

Yep, judge me. Go ahead, because I know 100% that what I did was wrong ><

The thing about this illness (and yes, I consider it an illness since I feel that it is severely contagious) is that it does pros and cons (yes, surprisingly there are pros in this!) The cons are quite obvious, but the inconspicuous pros are what I want to focus on slightly.

Pros about revisiting an old drama that you watched years ago (ignoring the whole “I just stayed up all night to finish this marathon” bit) is that you get to discover points and highlights in the drama that you probably never noticed the first time around. With my experience of reliving the world of “Hwang Jin Yi”, I’ve come to realise that there is a good reason why good Kdramas are just good. And so, here is my review that will entail you all of my 2nd experience with “Hwang Jin Yi”!

And yeah, this post possibly may not be spoiler-free; you have been warned!

An absolutely stunning photo taken~~

An absolutely stunning photo taken! Ha Ji Won unni looks so beautiful *o*
