September 2015 Choices - Videos and K-Dramas

Coffee Prince (2007)
As some of you may have seen previously, I finished and wrote a review for Coffee Prince about two or so weeks ago. It was an amazing drama to watch. It was hilarious, heart-breaking and adorable all at the same time. It definitely tugged at some of my heart strings. And plus, the actor Gong Yoo (who played Choi Han Kyul) was such a strawberry (terminology I use for a hot/cute guy). Coffee Prince is a must-watch for romcom lovers.

A tomboy is mistaken for a young man, but maintains the deception for the sake of employment. The situation is complicated when her male boss begins to develop feelings for this "boy".

I don't remember what I've done or said for karma to bitch slap me in the face, but it's hit me hard today. Really hard. It's nothing depressive or aggravating, so don't worry your cotton socks.

As some of you may remember from a while back, in my first ever monthly choices post, I posted about getting my 'The Amazing Tour is Not On Fire' tickets. That day is soon approaching (12 days!), and I'm super excited for it. I've actually have a countdown in my planner since April of this year, counting down the days until the 9th of October.

Happy Belated Birthday, Lee Jong Suk!

I already knew on the 14th that it was Jong Suk's birthday, however, I wasn't in a great mood to be writing a post on it, and I was like that yesterday as well. I don't really know why, but I did the same thing with Joy's birthday on the third of September (but I didn't post about it because it was too late by the time I got round to it). Anyway, here's to my second favourite actor since my k-drama debut in January! Happy Belated Birthday!

Small Announcement

As some of you readers have hopefully noticed, pretty much since I started this blog, I've been doing the monthly CFs (commercials) from South Korea and picking my favourite ones. However, due to me being in Corfu for the end of August (when the list of CFs comes out), I was unable to do a post on it. I was getting slightly bored with it anyway, so I have decided to stop doing them. That's all.

Red Velvet

At the moment, I am only a fan of one female kpop group, and they are Red Velvet. They are a pretty new group, that was only formed a year ago. The reason why I am talking about them now is because they have just released one of their singles that will be complied together in a new album: The Red. Red Velvet is a very popular group, despite being so new, because their previous single, Ice Cream Cake, was a massive hit.

Synopsis: Bong Sun, a timid young woman, is possessed by the ghost of a lustful virgin. She has zero self-confidence, and because of her extreme shyness, she doesn't have any close friends. At the restaurant where she works as an assistant, she's not particularly good at anything, and mostly just gets yelled at a lot. Her grandmother was a shaman so from a young age she's been able to occasionally see ghosts, though it's not until she meets the lascivious ghost that she gets possessed totally. Sun Woo is a conceited star chef who's overflowing with confidence in his food and his skills. Bong Sun harbors a secret crush on him, though he doesn't take much notice of her for two reasons: because he's always surrounded by women and because he's hung up on an old flame. But the one day, Bong Sun starts acting differently, shedding her mousy personality, and ends up constantly on Sun Woo's mind.
