I cut the Saranghae Korea! into different links. I separated each Korean TV Series to give way to Leila’s request. She wanted to comment on separate TV Series. I think it’s a very good suggestion because it made the article more organized and “clean”. Thanks Leila! By the way, check out her newly set up blog site -> Vaindulgence
Have fun reading everyone! More articles will be posted in a flash! Saranghae!
I saw this series being shown in Singapore and I got captivated! I admire the female lead’s “never say die” attitude. Incidentally, she’s also the female lead in Boys Over Flowers. I admit that triggered me to watch the show. 🙂
I can’t say much since I haven’t finished it yet. Nevertheless, I’m loving it to the maximum level!
This is another good show for unattached individuals who are chubby and with a very odd name which is “unacceptable” in the society. I fit the bill for being single and fat. Well, my name is unique and strange… but i love it! :p
The series also emphasized that being vocal is an asset. Know what you want, voice out how you feel and fight for your rights!
This made me stop and ponder on things. It truly hits home!
Whether we admit it or not, we all want to meet our soulmate. There are relationships that are not meant to be, no matter hard you try to make it work. Tragic but it’s reality. Accept the inevitable and move forward. It’s such a waste to live a pathetic life. :p
At first, I don’t like the plot of this series including the title (it’s corny!) but after watching few episodes, I finally find it appealing. The male lead is very charming and has an endearing hilarious antics. The way the male and female leads tried so hard to avoid the love that they feel for each other makes me think of some people I know. Indenial stage eh?
Also, this series made cooking an interesting and artistic undertaking as well as provided helpful tips and tricks.
It’s kinda weird because the female lead’s plan to have a child without a husband coincide with mine. Hush hush! I even sent a text message to my prospective “donor” two (2) years ago. We did not yet talk about it. I think he’s ignoring it on purpose. I wonder why. Maybe… Just maybe… He has something else in mind that I will know soon? Or it’s just my wild imagination?
Hmmm… Whatever it is, he has still six (6) months to think things over. You know who you are. Ha! If I don’t receive a reply after that period, I will resort to plan B. :p
I’ve also watched Boys Over Flower (multiple times!), Coffee Prince, Sassy Girl, Temptation of a Wife, Full House, Baker King (partial) and… I forgot the others. I plead guilty. I’m a sucker for Korean TV Series and reached the point of becoming proficient in the art of reading subtitles!
iPhone crunchyroll app provided a convenient way to watch Korean shows whenever and wherever. Thanks much Steve Jobs and the Apple people for developing the iPhone! I hope the Flash Player issue will be sorted out soon so that I can watch more. Ha!
As for the Hearts of 19, it’s not yet in the crunchyroll so I have to watch it in mysoju.com. I hope the crunchyroll guys will soon add it in their list. Wheey! Time to stop! This blog entry has gotten way too loooooooong! :p
See you all in a bit! Saranghae (I love you)! Aja!
I’m a true blooded Filipino who was born and raised in the Philippines. I stayed momentarily in Europe and Singapore then eventually migrated somewhere in North America. Moreover, I’ve never been to Korea… and nobody paid me to write this. :p However, if Koreans would like to treat me with an all expense paid trip to Korea… that would be awesome! If given the chance, I want to see the Jeju Island, Seoul and the Namsan Tower.
I can’t really understand why am I so hooked with Korean TV Series.. maybe because it’s an excellent stress reliever? Koreans make simple stories into a great feel good and charming series. I’ve finished watching five (5) series plus one (1) in progress. Every episode lasts for an hour and the usual series have 17 to 25 episodes.
Only Hearts of 19 has 160+ episodes. I’m now in the 95th episode but currently I stopped watching so that I can focus in writing entries for my blog site and at the same time, live my life like normal human being should do. :p
My nephew was bugging me to have a battle with him few days before the beyblade tournament in their school. I’ve already turned him down a dozen times because I don’t have the slightest idea on how to play but this time, I gave in.
Before the battle, my nephew patiently taught me the basics. It’s kinda cute because we had to chant “3 2 1, let it rip!” before launching. Ha! I can really feel his love for the game. I wonder how long will it last? 😉
After a few minutes, we started the battle in the “stadium”. His beyblade kept on jumping out of the stadium. According to James, by rule, it doesn’t count (note: with “his” rule,I don’t get to add points to my score) and it needs to relaunched.
I did pretty good for a first timer because he nearly lost. -_- He gave me encouraging words like “you did pretty good Tita, you’ll win next time”. A motivator in the making eh? We called it a day and I went back to my Korean Comedy Series and he went back to his Wii game.
Before getting engrossed to my fave series, I wished him good luck on his beyblade tournament. Guess what he replied? “I don’t need any luck.” I nearly fainted because he said it like a grown up and with gusto. He even asked all of us to watch him and be his cheering squad.
