Aw… Yeah!

You know you’re a goner when it comes to K-dramas when your proudest moment of the week is successfully getting your friend hooked on City Hunter.

It all started with this impressive fanmade trailer for City Hunter, which I discovered via dangermousie.

(Special thanks to luchiaichigogirl for uploading the trailer.)

My friend is now two episodes ahead of me and she told me the other day that she’s obsessed (her word, not mine). Ahh, I guess this means that I’m a K-drama enabler and you know what? It feels so good! 🙂

Sexy Personified

I recently saw X-Men: First Class in theater and besides enjoying the movie immensely, I walked out of the theater in a state of bliss because I discovered the amazingness that is James McAvoy. It is about 1:00 in the morning where I am and instead of sleeping, I’m in Youtube-verse, watching interviews clips of this charismatic man.


I love how his brows furrowed when interviewed, as though he was focusing all his attention on listening to the interviewer’s questions.

Bromance! ♥

I love watching his interviews with Craig Ferguson because they looked so comfortable around each other and could talk about anything under the sun. Perhaps it’s because they’re fellow Scotsmen.

So I guess it’s official… I’ve embarked on a McAvoyage and I don’t think I want it to end. His accent, talent, eloquence, and all-around awesomeness… *melts into goo*

At Last!

Ever since Sungkyunkwan Scandal ended last year, I hadn’t found a drama that was as addicting and exciting as SKKS. Until now.

City Hunter, it is so good! Seriously, I marathoned 9 episodes in one day and didn’t sleep until 3 a.m. because this drama gets better and better with each episode. Interestingly, City Hunter also stars Park Min Young, playing another kickass character. I think she’s fast becoming one of my favorite young actresses.

Also, I love this song from the OST.

Romance Town: A Pleasant Surprise

Dear Romance Town,

I’m sorry for judging you on your uninspired title prematurely and putting you on the bottom of my list of May dramas to check out. You are so much more than what your name would suggest and have managed to charm your way into my heart with your wonderfully quirky personality. I love your adorable OTP because their relationship set-up is my favorite, the one where two strangers become friends first before blossoming into romantic partners.

I also love your heroine, who is lovable and spunky, not to mention incredibly pretty. I think I may have a small girlcrush on Soon Geum. And let’s not forget about your hero, who, despite not being attractive to me on a physical level, is endearing in his own way. I’m glad that I gave you a chance and cannot wait to get to know you better. Thanks for being so delightful!


What Have You Done Today To Make You Feel Proud?

Not much, particularly with regards to this blog, seeing how the last update was almost a month ago. But I did manage to find the time to check out Sherlock, which comes highly recommended by zooey. (Thank you!)

I just finished watching Season 1 all in one go and let me get this out of the way. SHERLOCK IS FREAKING BRILLIANT! Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are perfectly cast as the titular Sherlock and the trusty colleague/friend, respectively. After each episode, I was left speechless, head spinning, and jaw on the floor. The show is all around awesome, from the acting, writing, and directing to cinematography and music. It’s fast paced, well-acted and written (I always appreciate it when a show does not insult its viewers’ intelligent), with a dash of dark humor thrown in. And the ending of episode 3? This is how cliffhangers should be done, people. I am so looking forward to Season 2!

I’ve also been rewatching Miranda, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I started speaking in a faux British accent. Like the times when I binged on K-dramas, I’d answer questions with “ye” and “anio” instead of “yes” and “no” and people would give me quizzical looks. Now, if I do pick up the British thing, let’s hope that it’ll do me some good and make me more articulate and sharp.

Why Bother Walking When You Can Gallop

Miranda (Season 1, episode 3)

You guys, I’ve been missing out on some awesome television gold. That is, until I stumbled upon darkeyedwolf’s LJ yesterday and he/she was recommending Miranda, the BBC sitcom which began airing in 2009. (Thanks a bunch for plugging Miranda!) On a whim, I decided to check it out because 1) the episodes are all on YouTube, 2) situation comedy is one of my favorite genres, and 3) I like British humor. Now, I guess I should tell you that this was around 10 pm, which is not a good time to try out something that is potentially cracktastic, especially when one has school early in the morning the next day. To be honest, I did not expect to like Miranda this much, but a few minutes into the show and I was already LMAO! THIS TV SERIES, IT IS FRICKING HILARIOUS! And then, when the time was around 12:30 am, instead of going to bed like I should, I wanted moar and ended up not sleeping until close to 2 am.

I went to class today and guess what I did right after I got home from school? Yes, that’s right. I watched more of this delightful show.

If you haven’t seen Miranda, please check it out! Here’s a short clip to whet your appetite.

I love you, Miranda!
