Seoul Diaries IV

So where did I leave off last time? Oh yes, The Rose. I only went to listen to them once when I posted two weeks ago, but then I managed to go a second time last week. Their first busking event was at University Road or 대학로 which is where many of the performance scenes [...]

Lee Jung Shin’s Longing Heart

Quite honestly, writing this review is one I have been avoiding due to a single reason: Jung Yong Hwa's scandal. After the events of last December, we were all just recovering that CN Blue fans got hurt by Yong Hwa's scandal. An absolutely illogical scandal that has left me very disturbed, especially because of Yong [...]

Year 2009: You’re Beautiful

With Hwayugi's finale fast approaching, here am I paying my own kind of tribute to the ladies behind a multitude of classic Korean dramas that have defined pop culture for over a decade: The Hong Sisters. For many new fans of Korean culture, specifically dramas, these women, rather script writers are ones they are unfamiliar [...]

Hi guys! This article starts a new feature regarding various Korean music acts, whether pop, hip hop, rock or indie. The first article in this series is on CNBlue, since this is a band that holds a very special place in my heart, since they got me into Kpop in the first place. So here [...]

Jung Yong Hwa’s The Package

First of all this has to be his BEST, I repeat BEST role after playing Lee Shin in Heartstrings, which was 2011, meaning 6 years passed till he landed with [...]

Sam Soon’s Secret Garden of Hyde and Jekyll

I have found my newfound obsession: Hyun Bin. Except I’ve probably watched all his famous dramas and am writing this review hoping to successfully cover all of his work.So the truth of the matter is that I only ran into him thanks to Sung Joon (Ji Hyuk from Shut Up!) I decided to watch Hyde, Jekyll [...]

Pinocchio

So I have watched a few dramas since my last review but not many stood out for me and therefore, this is a very special piece on Pinocchio that just ended last Thursday. I wish to commend the drama for its very realistic character portrayals and the fact that I think I’ve found a new [...]

Fusion Music Pulls at Heartstrings

The first drama I ever watched! Heartstrings: that’s what it truly did! It pulled at my heartstrings, tugged at them and made me break down and cry more than once. The most addictive drama I’ve ever seen, and one I sat through over 5 times. Some obsession was this drama. A drama about being young, [...]
