‘Oh My Venus’ and my fitness goals for 2016

Ironic as it may seem, but I started the New Year watching the last episodes of ‘Oh My Venus!’—the Korean drama that hooked me just before 2015 ended. I love this rom-com not only because its very funny, the actors were superb A-listers, So Ji Sub is sooo downright cool that I want him and… Continue reading ‘Oh My Venus’ and my fitness goals for 2016

Haedong Yonggungsa Temple (Busan part 2)

I’ve been to many Buddhist temples but this is the first time I’ve been to one that sports a spectacular view of the sea… Haedong Yonggungsa, definitely, nailed my search for one of my best travel spots in South Korea.

Chicken Omurice

There’s this particular scene in Rooftop Prince where the heroine, Park-ha (Han Ji Min), prepared a hearty dish for the err, “lost”  Crown Prince (Park Yu-Chun) and his entourage.

All Hail Queen Seon Deok! (A belated review on QSD)

I know…I know, this review is already really late, but there’s something so addicting in this Korean saeguk (historical) drama that I just feel like I can’t get enough of it.

Musings: How Queen Seon Deok started it all

I wasn’t into any Korean dramas before, but when GMA-7 started running QSD, a Korean saeguk drama on the life of the first female ruler in old Korea’s Silla Kingdom, I was hooked. There was so much discussion going on especially in the Internet plus the fact most of my friends and acquaintances had been talking about… Continue reading Musings: How Queen Seon Deok started it all
