“Destiny is something that you can’t change even if you want to…
It’s something you can’t escape no matter how hard you try..
It’s something you can’t just cast off no matter how you struggle…”
“Destiny and Soul mates are all selfish fantasies that people created so that they don’t have to agonize over love.”
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
It’s a story about an old spinster (a.k.a. old maid) who wants to get married badly. This series kept me glued for two reasons:
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
Aneong Ha Sae Yo! (Hello!)
As promised in my previous article (Korean Aficionado), below are the Korean TV Series that I’ve watched for the past two (2) months. You may click the links to view:
Note: I prefer watching the original series with subtitles than the “Tagalogized” (dubbed in Tagalog) version.
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!
