SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODE 5

Lee Seon Jae – A shy man or a piano prodigy with Asparger syndrome? You who have known me for some time now already know that when I start obsessing over something my obsession reaches epic proportions. Well, to say I’ve been obssesing over SLA would be the understatement of the century. The level of […]

SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODES 3 & 4

Episode 3 is a pure OTP PERFECTION! I’m simply in awe of the way each episode keeps slowly building up the tension and attraction between SJ and HW as it feels like an intimate crescendo that will culminate in a dazzling climax. What is not to love about a show that starts with its male lead kneeling […]

SECRET LOVE AFFAIR – EPISODE 1 & 2

JTBC’s newest Mon-Tue drama has premiered two weeks ago and Nate has been abuzz with it ever since, with SLA being 1.- 5. most searched each day (a huge success for a cable drama). Well, one thing is certain – Yoo Ah In, the noona killer, is back with vengeance as he banishes all my doubts […]

You Who Came From the Stars – Episode 4

If you told me a month ago that I would end up suffering from insomnia writing long ramblings about YWCFTS I’d call you crazy. Yet, it’s 2 a.m. in my timezone and here I am typing about my total addiction for this drama.The ratings are on the rise sweeping past the 20% percent mark with […]

You Who Came From the Stars – Episode 2

It’s official – this show owns my heart! Even for Heirs I haven’t felt this level of excitement with which can compete only one drama this years – SBS’s Jang Ok Jung (despite the lackluster second half). And I don’t want to speak too soon but when every newspaper, blogger and fan out there is putting […]

You Who Came From the Stars – Episode 1

Sayonaraaaa, Heirs! Welcome E.T!!! So the most famous alien in Asia right now has finally landed on Earth and it looks like his motto must be “I came, I saw, I conquered” because he swept through the Kdramaland and won on all fronts bringing in a strong 15,6% ratings and thus beating his competition by […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – LEE SOON EDITION PART 3 – GUGUNBOK

5) THE BLUE MILITARY UNIFORM – THE GUGUNBOK We saw LS wearing this getup during his trips outside of the palace, one of them being his visit to the infamous MH’s coup d’état birthday party.  The whole attire such as it’s shown is called a gugunbok and originally used to be the inner garment of a suit of armor worn by a monarch and […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – JEWELRY & ORNAMENTS SPECIAL EDITION PART 5 – BINYEO

4) BINYEO Binyeo was used to fix hair and coronets on the head but it was also used as a decorative ornament. It came in many different materials such as gold, silver, nickel, brass, pearl, jade, amber, coral, wood, bamboo, or animal bone. A commoner’s binyeo was made of wood or animal bones. Only the upper class and the royals were […]

FAITH – LONG LIVE THE GANGNAM PRINCESS STYLE

Before JOJ came I’ve been a hardcore Fathling so last year I compiled a list of the modern clothes that Eun Soo wore in the drama. Actually, this is the first drama related fashion post that I wrote only with some minor changes for the purposes of this blog. To begin let me put it […]

THE JOSEON FASHION SHOW – JANG OK JUNG EDITION PART 6

12) THE RUNAWAY GOWN If you decide to runaway do it in style because it’d probably be a once-in-a-life-time experience – I guess that is what JOJ was thinking when she chose a pink jeogori with mangnolia embroidery for her fugitive venture. A matching otgoreum and stark dongjeong are neccesity with a black chima to complement the whole attire.
