Lack of Updates

For the regular visitors of this blog who were disappointed with the recent lack of updates, I sincerely apologize. I was accepted to an accelerated nursing program and will be attending it in May. And so, in addition to work, I was busy with completing all the required paperwork and travelling down to the school to take care of business. Thus, blog updates will occur on an ocassional basis, instead of regularly. Once again, to those who care, I apologize.

Below are some goodies from the latest K-dramas, namely, Que Sera Sera and Witch Amusement. Enjoy!

Modernizing Classical Symphonies

Recent K-dramas, in addition to their entertaining storyline, have integrated the works of classical music geniuses into their OSTs (Original Sound Tracks) and have transformed those “outdated” yet classic pieces into something trendy and hip. The amazing thing is that these remixes fit perfectly with the dramas and they definitely enhance the audience’s experience of certain scenes and/or emotions. Examples of “modernized” classical symphonies include songs from the OST of My Girl and most recently, Witch Amusement.

Mozart’s Symphony No. 40

“Never Say Goodbye” – Mario & Nesty

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 (1st Movement)

운명의 장난 命運的惡作劇 -Mc진리(Feat.하하)

Special thanks to yeohweping for the OST.

Random Rant

I’m not feeling well at the moment. I think I got food poisoning or something along those lines. Note to self and those who are reading this: do not consume leftover pizza that is four days old, no matter how “normal” it looked or tasted. I repeat, do not! Trust me on this one.

I finally finished watching Save the Last Dance for Me after it has been taking space on my computer for months. I also finished The Snow Queen. So that’s a total of 36 hours of my life, mostly wasted on nothing more than eye candies. Surprisingly, I liked the former more than the latter even though it doesn’t have Hyun Bin. I’m not that shallow, you know. I can be objective too, sometimes.

I’m also done with Hwang Jin Yi and I loved it! One of the best dramas I’ve seen to date. I’ve been wanting to write a review of sort for the drama but it’s quite difficult coming up with right wording and organizing all my thoughts into one that’s coherent and detailed. I’ll try and see if I can get one together because I really want to get the word out on how great this show is. Highly recommended!

The premiere for Witch Amusement will be pushed back as Surgeon Bong Dal Hee will be extended to 18 episodes due to its high ratings.

I also read that the airing date for Time Between Dog and Wolf will be further delayed until September. Aish, really. Let this be the official date. Please, no more delays!

Thanks to this blog, my respect for Hollywood has changed dramatically. Not that Hollywood cares about what a little person like me thinks about them, but I’m writing this as a kind of “just so you know..” type thing.

I’m probably going to do episodic summaries and/or screencaps of Hello!Miss because this blog is, after all, “mukgu-fied.” March 19th is the premiere. It’s next Monday! Woot woot!

Previews

Witch Amusement
Uploaded by: hirohiroH2

It looks like a fun drama from the preview. Han Ga In is oh so gorgeous but Jae Hee’s hairstyle is odd, much different than his look in Sassy Girl, Chun Hyang. Anyway, I’m definitely watching this one!

The Devil

The clip looks intense. Although I’m still slightly annoyed at the fact that Uhm Tae Woong is second lead, I guess we’ll have to see how much screen time he has.

I’m loving the March line-up this year. In addition to the two dramas above, we also have Hello!Miss with Lee Da Hae, H.I.T. with Go Hyun Jung, and Lee Dong Wook in a new drama if he accepts the role. I’m considering doing a episode summary for one of these shows but won’t know which one yet until I see the first episode of each drama. Or perhaps an episodic project is too ambitious since I still haven’t finished the first one that I started. Heehee. I guess we’ll see how determined I am this time around.
