This round is brought to you by my need to share this gif of Ji Chang-wook. (And my overcompensating nature for the lack of posts last week.)
It was Yoo Ah-in’s birthday last Friday so I thought of finally reviewing these two movies of his that I’ve seen. I’ve loved Yoo Ah-in since 2010, when he made everyone suffer from Second Lead Syndrome in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I was even a contributor for one of his international fan sites. (I tend to be obsessive, okay.) BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OPPA!!! (Forgive me for being late. Huhu. This was supposed to be posted last Friday but I got so busy and I wasn’t able to finish the reviews.)
I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Sunday to Saturday. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes! (Posted a day late because I got so busy last week that I couldn’t even finish this weekly round-up post!) Continue reading “Weekly Round-up (10): October 1 – 7, 2017”
Another month has ended so I’m here to share the songs I’ve been into the past month. Here’s a Spotify playlist to make it easy for you!
The songs here are mostly by artists I already like and follow, such as Demi Lovato, ZAYN, Sia, Niall Horan (album this October!), Dagny, WALK THE MOON (NEW ALBUM THIS NOVEMBER NOPE I’M NOT HYPERVENTILATING YOU ARE), and BØRNS among others. Dagny’s “Wearing Nothing” has been on constant repeat recently and I also got Sarah into it. Hahaha! The playlist even has its acoustic version and a remix. Basically, I can listen to it again and again.
I finally got around to listening to Dua Lipa and YES, I LOVE THE GIRL AND HER MUSIC. And to Lauv as well. New discovery c/o Sarah on IV Of Spades, a Filipino band. LISTEN TO THEM!!!
If you’ve been following my weekly round-ups, the songs I usually spotlighted every week are in here, like Kang Seungyoon’s You. Yes, it looks like Korean songs will now always be in my playlists. I’M BACK, KPOP! Hahaha. Two songs from the My Secret Romance soundtrack are also there because there was a night I got into kdrama OSTs and I listened to those two again and again because Y SO CUTE
Also, not in there are Taeyang and G-Dragon’s songs because I had playlists of their concert setlists so I listened to them separately. But I listened to them A LOT this September since they had their concerts and I SAW THEM!!!! SUCH SUPERSTARS SO GREAT SO TALENTED SO GOOD
Anyway, please do share what you’ve been listening to recently. Don’t be a grouch! Share good music!

Probably the only reason I haven’t cancelled my Netflix subscription yet is because of Stranger Things. (Let’s be real though, I will never be able to quit Netflix even if I’m jobless like now because TV is LIFE.) I loved the first season and in fact, I watched it a total of THREE TIMES in a span of two weeks?? Something like that. It was just so compulsively watchable that I remember sleeping at 7AM just to finish it all. (Pro-tip: Do not start watching a series at midnight.) Admittedly, what initially hooked me was these kids playing Dungeons and Dragons because I play D&D myself. But each episode was more gripping than the previous and I was unstoppable as I queued an episode right after the other. IT IS JUST THAT GOOD. What made Stranger Things even more fun for me was watching it again with my friends, most of which also play D&D with me, and discussing it and loving it altogether.
So this October, I am planning on hosting a Stranger Things viewing party!!!!111 YAY!!!! *confetti* And now, you gotta help me with it! Continue reading “Help me plan my ‘Stranger Things’ viewing party!”
THIS IS SO NOT PART OF MY PLAN! I wasn’t supposed to watch While You Were Sleeping. For one, I am not a big fan of Lee Jong-seok. Don’t brick me, I think he’s a good actor but I’m not following each and every project he makes. Second, Suzy. We all know she isn’t a talented actress so I don’t exactly look forward to her dramas. And lastly, I gave it a chance and checked out the teasers and the trailer but I wasn’t enticed by them. So I was set to pass on this one. But here I am, telling you my thoughts on While You Were Sleeping‘s premiere week. Life is indeed full of surprises.
For this round, I’ll be talking about two Korean web dramas with WINNER members as leads. (I am getting too deep into this fandom.) I’ve seen both on the same week and I can’t promise that I won’t compare their acting abilities. Still, I love both members, okay. My thoughts on these web dramas under the cut!
With an upcoming drama this October 9 in This Life is Our First (Alternative Title: Because This is My First Life), Lee Min-ki and Jung So-min are doing the publicity rounds and one of this is posing for Marie Claire Korea for their October 2017 issue! Lots of photos under the cut! (LOVE THESE TWO)
