Welcome to our new home, Twinkles!

In the coming days and weeks, I hope to work on this site to make our new home as comfortable and as familiar to us as possible, so I hope you’ll settle in and take a look around.

Here’s to a new phase of our Kdrama romps together! 🙂

New Direction for 2018…

Hello, my dear Twinkles! Long time, no write, huh? My apologies.

Over the past few months, I’ve debated what to tell you, how to tell you…and then the new year began, and I realized that I needed to stop hemming and hawing over the changes that I needed to make regarding Musings. So, you ready to read what’s in store for this little blog? Continue reading “New Direction for 2018…”

Friday Fun: Unnies (언니쓰) – “Right?” (맞지?)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

I bet you’re surprised to hear from me before my self-imposed September comeback, huh? 😉

Although I’m still dealing with Real Life in all its various shades of joys and struggles, I just couldn’t resist sharing with you something that’s been giving me great joy these past couple of months.

There’s a new girl group in K-pop, and Unnies is making a name for itself! Not only is this newbie group comprised of seven extremely talented women in their respective professions, the members span an unprecedented age range from the teens to the forties! The variety show world–despite the sometimes lackluster ratings–has been rocked with mirth and warm fuzzies as these women bond together to forge the newest K-pop girl group, and now they are taking the K-pop industry by storm! At least I think so! And if the music charts can be believed, so does the rest of the K-pop world! 😉

So…since sharing is caring, I wanted to share with you something that is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and a light skip or two to your hearts! And if you follow the Sister’s Slam Dunk Season 2 show, the “extras” in the music video are going to have you chuckling in appreciation! 🙂 Continue reading “Friday Fun: Unnies (언니쓰) – “Right?” (맞지?)”

News: Going on a Temporary Hiatus

Dear Twinkles,

From time to time, real life takes up so much time that my playtime in Kdramaland gets affected. Boo~! Today is such a time. Double boo~!

For the next few months, probably until the end of summer, I’ll be going on a hiatus–a temporary one–so I hope you’ll stick around and patiently wait for my return. 🙂

In the meanwhile, NewKDramaAddict will still be posting her “Movie Monday” posts over at her website (here) as real life allows her. 🙂

Until September then, my dear Twinkles…~!

News: The Battleship Island (2017)

Let me first preface this post by confessing that I just got home from a 3-hour evening lecture, so I’m feeling a bit drained. I make no promises of complete coherence in this post. 😉

Barring certain lapses in coherent English, though, I just couldn’t resist sharing with you a trailer that I saw earlier today. Truthfully, I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw it during my lunch break.

You ready to see why, despite my tiredness and resolution to only blog on Fridays and Sunday evenings, I caved and am now blogging on a Wednesday night when I should already be asleep or at least getting ready to sleep? 😛

Get prepared to scream, Twinkles~! Some of our favorite eye candies are heading to the big screen in a historical movie of epic proportions, one that is clearly determined to wring out every last vestige of tears in our bodies if the trailer is any indication!

Doubt me? Take a look at this trailer and see for yourself…  Continue reading “News: The Battleship Island (2017)”

Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~! Are you excited today? If not, I think you will be when you read that the newest JTBC series Strong Woman Do Bong Soon aired its first highly-awaited episode today and released the first song of its OST.

Are you excited now? 😉

Without further ado, let’s take a listen and more importantly, a closer look at the series that may just put the cable station JTBC on a whole new footing with us Kdrama fans. If nothing else, it’s promising to provide us with a super adorable couple who will probably make our hearts pitter-patter with glee each Friday and Saturday for the next few months. 🙂 Yup, I’m talking about Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik! 🙂  Continue reading “Friday Fun: Jeong Eun Ji (정은지) – “You’re My Garden” (그대란 정원) from Strong Woman Do Bong Soon OST (힘쎈여자 도봉순 OST)”

Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young – “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” (Fabricated City OST)

Happy Friday, Twinkles~!

The Princess of Trot (aka Hong Jin Young) is back with another song, this one from the newly released movie, Fabricated City (2017), which stars Ji Chang WookShim Eun KyungAhn Jae Hong, and other notable stars.

I know that the song is a bit melancholy and odd–the clips from the movie don’t seem to quite fit the song–but it’s Hong Jin Young, and you know how I feel about her. 🙂

So let’s get this weekend started with another HJY song! *blows noisemaker*  Continue reading “Friday Fun: Hong Jin Young – “Loves Me, Loves Me Not” (Fabricated City OST)”
