KDrama: Recently watched 26.07.2013

Hello all!

I got a great response for my last blog post on my favourite Korean Dramas (KDrama) last time so I am back here again today with a list of my recently watched KDramas and what I think of them.

Baker King – Kim Tak Goo

Baker King

Episodes: 30

This drama is nothing less than amazing. It’s very inspiring. I don’t know how else to describe it. Just. Watch. It. I must warn you though, this is not the lovey dovey kind of drama nor does it make you laugh every few minutes. But it’s definitely a must-watch! Can’t believe I didn’t watch it sooner (though I definitely do prefer my romantic comedies!).

Innocent Man

 

 

 

 

Innocent Man

Episodes: 20

After a rather “neutural” and “inspiring” drama, this is definitely a very depressing, wrong-in-every-way kind of drama. As I mentioned before, I started watching this because of the cast. So many people I know from variety shows (Family Outing Season 1’s Park Si Yeon and Running Man’s Song Jong Ki & Lee Kwang Soo). This was definitely more depressing than I thought though! Oh and it’s got a rather “Inception” ending if you know what I’m talking about – I still don’t know exactly what happened. But still glad I watched it – some really sweet moments there.

Ma Boy

Ma Boy

Episodes: 3

So Innocent Man got too depressing for me so I decided to find something light and fun and romantic (a.k.a. my RomCom hunt begins). I found this mini series along the lines of finding new stuff to watch. The story is cliche and the acting is not the best but nonetheless it did its job – entertained and cheered me up after Innocent Man.

The Thousandth Man

 

 

 

 

 

The Thousanth Man

Episodes: 8

Another just-for-fun kind of drama, but this time, with a touch of fantasy – the legend of the nine tailed fox that is apparently very popular than I thought. The story follows a family of “Gumiho” (nine-tailed fox) trying to get their 1000 livers from 1000 men in order for them to become human again. One of them though refused to take livers from men who didn’t have love and compassion for her – this drama follows her journey in getting her one thousandth man.

Nail Shop Paris

Nail Shop Paris

Episodes: 10

More fun & games. With (again) the legend of the nine tailed fox intertwined in it. Another series with not-so-great acting and over-reacted parts though I enjoyed this nonetheless. I must admit I didn’t really expect the ending. I heard though this drama didn’t get good enough ratings to keep going so they ended it short at episode 10.

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

 

 

 

 

 

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop

Episodes: 16

This drama was hilarious and fun to watch. The acting was definitely way better in comparison to Ma Boy and Nail Shop Paris and I promise you no “Gumiho” was involved this time. This drama kind of reminds me of the Taiwanese drama Devil Beside You though the lead actress plays a student teacher and the lead male plays the son of the owner of the school. Comedy and romance in a drama? You know I’m a sucker for it.

That was everything I watched in the past 2 months or so. I tend to get very “obsessed” when I watch dramas. I always want to know what happens next and rarely do I ever stop watching series before I finish all the episodes – especially if it’s romantic comedies.

Have you watched any series lately? Let me know in the comments below!

$1 Candle!

I know, I can’t believe what I saw either.

$1 Candle

$1 Candle

I’m not normally a candle-burner and I am sensitive and particular to smells. (I am one of those people who can smell cucumber, celery, rain, coriander, etc) I absolutely do not enjoy sweet milky smells unless it’s a real cupcake or cookie baking. I have tried a couple of the Glade candles (the Lavender and the colour-changing candle) a while ago and I love them but most of the time I hesitate buying candles just because I don’t think they’re worth the price.

I went to K-Mart (Australia) the other day and found these little candles for $1 each! I know, out of all places to find candles. But hey, Australia don’t have Bed Bath and Beyond and so the ever so popular Slatkin & Co. and Yankee candles are almost impossible to find (unless if I buy them online). I was of course sceptical as to how these candles smell, but at the same time I couldn’t resist smelling all the scents they had.

The candle that I picked up was the first candle I smelt and oh my, it smells fresh and fruity and delicious. Then I thought I should smell the other ones too – bad choice. They all smelt horrible to me and I hated them.

In the end what made me buy this candle was the price. For $1, even if it doesn’t make my room smell nice, at least I will have a candle for possible future photography projects.

The candle is burning on my desk right now and it has been for the past maybe 20 minutes and yeah I do smell it from here. So I guess the $1 was definitely worth it.

Anyway, do check these candles out. TIP: I heard that the correct way to smell candles at the store is to smell the lid. That way, all the scents are already “mushed” together and you’re not just smelling one element of the candle.

Let me know if you like these kinds of posts so I can do more!

Lots of smiles,
