KDrama: Sungkyunkwan Scandal (2010)

This is a repost from my drama blog that was posted on August 2012.

Main Characters:
Micky Yoochun or Park Yoochun as Lee Sun-joon (nickname: Ga-rang')
Park Min-young as Kim Yoon-hee (nickname: Dae-mul)
Song Joong-ki as Gu Yong-ha (nickname: Yeo-rim)
Yoo Ah-in as Moon Jae-shin (nickname: Geol-oh)
Genre: Historical, Romance Comedy

I finished watching this drama last year but just thought of posting a review of it today. If I am not  mistaken, this was the first drama i've watched of Micky Yoochun (forgive me but I was no big fan of Kdramas before until Boys Over Flowers) and he got me impressed by his acting right away, making him one of the K idols I am fantasizing nowadays.  Park Min Young, on the other hand, shouldn't be left out because aside from this drama's catchy synopsis, she is one of the main reasons why I started watching this.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal is not the kind of scandal you might be thinking right now. I found it a one interesting drama, worthy of note. …

My Say on The Innocent Man

This drama started with a climax and I expected that as it progressed it would offer something more...but it didn't. It had some thrills and puzzles, which would make a viewer think, entice to watch farther and expect. And for me, every episodes promises nothing but boredome. Please don't get me wrong though, It wasnt the actors coz I love them and there was no problem with their acting.  The problem is the story. It didn't meet my expectation basing the plot. It seemed like this drama was aired only to advertise Song Joong Ki's freshness. Lol!

I was entertained by it there is no doubt but I did not totally fall in love with the storyline. I'd expected a much better filmography from that of the plot. I expected more action from Song Joong-ki and this drama made him do nothing but be cute in front the camera (well, at least there were those scenes). I as well expected more action from the lead girl. Gosh I liked how tough she was at the start...and then later on, a…

Casts: Song Joong-ki as Kang Ma-ru, Moon Chae-won as Seo Eun-gi and Park Si-yeon as Han Jae-hee.

The story is about a nice guy Kang Ma-ru (Song Joong-ki) who turns into not really a bad bad person but into someone who is stern, with a heart full of hatred, unforgiving, and vindictive. In a shorter sense, a used-to-be nice and respectful guy Kang Ma-ru no longer existed after a sudden turn of event in his life. And that was after his girlfriend Han Jae-hee turns his back on him for a rich man, choosing money over love. After 5 years of serving in prison due to admitting a crime done by the ex-gf Jae-hee, sacrificing his dream of becoming a doctor, he plans on getting back at her by using the ex-gf's step-daughter Seo Eun-gi, the heiress to a large corporation Taesan.

Butch Turns 25

You may wonder who this Butch is, well I am not referring to any lesbian butch in the family (lol) but a brother who was given Butchie as a nickname by our late father. Our late father made him into his junior giving him the privilege to use his name Ramier hoping they could be buddies but the brother grew up to be a black sheep. Instead of being buddies, the two always ended up in a fight. Despite that, I knew they loved each other.

He turned 25 today, June 07, 2013. He spent his birthday in a simple yet meaningful way. He visited our father's grave around 3:00 p.m. He stayed there for about half an hour. I can imagine what he was doing while there in 30 minutes. He was sobbing while talking to father's grave, asking for forgiveness probably and some guidance and strength. When he came back home, we already had our little birthday preparation for him set and ready. The preparation wasn't much but he was very thankful.

At 25, I know that he is starting to feel the pressure …

Mango Bonding and "Cam-Whoring" with Little Sister

My bad! I was invited to a baptismal ceremony on Saturday as one of the godmothers to my college friend's son but sadly, I had to accompany my youngest sister to a dentist on that day. It was bad of me because I didn't inform her (my friend) that I won't be able to make it to the ceremony. Still though, I am counted as a godmother. It is funny I am counting godchildren but I don't even have my own child yet. Soon....hopefully. I want a baby girl!. 
Anyway, my youngest sister (in red) and I had a really awesome bonding on Sunday. We bought about 10 kilos of apple mangoes and we munched on it until we get fully loaded. We were belching mangoes afterwards. Lol! We just couldn't get enough of the mangoes. Yum and Sweet!

My youngest sister is still enjoying her school break with us though she is making sure she finishes her dentist appointments before her school begins. Last Saturday was her last dentist visit so by Sunday, we were able to bond before she left for the …

Crazy Days and My Pink Frankenstee

Goodbye May, hello June! Wow, it is amazing how time flies! It is the first day of June and it is Saturday. Since it is Saturday, it means time for Chiessy to share something pink. And not only that, it is the first day of the month to share a photo for the ever-loved daily meme, the 366 Blog Photo Challenge (hosted this month by Emzkie). Yey, I have something to write here. It is a very good thing for my mind really can't think of a nice topic to talk about at the moment.

So it's Pink Saturday and the first day of the month for the 366 Photo Challenge. My share for this day would be a flashback. Recalling the days with the really fun and crazy friends can only make me wish I have the power to turn back time. How I really wish! Like that day for instance when we drunk Emperador nonstop for two days at a friend's house and were crazy the next day taking crazy photos after we've sobered up.

This one's one of those crazy photos. I got a really nice glasses on in this…
