Revenge Episode 11 First 10 minutes

Tyler is completely unhinged now. I guess he's run out of his medication. LOL

Love You You

Cute movie but would it have killed them to kiss? And when they just kept missing each other at the end - how contrived.

Still worth a watch.

He won't go by Adele

My current jam... although in reality, I so would go. I dislike drama-filled relationships.

Fast Five

I just saw Fast Five. It was alright (and even a little boring at times like why was that fight between Dom and The Rock's character so long?) till they finally stole that vault and it got awesome. Those car chases were amazing especially when Dom took all those men out with the vault. FABULOUS. Although I kept thinking about how they were ruining the entire city just to get even with some gangster. Wish I could find a better clip on youtube but this is it...

The twist with the vault was so obvious, though.

Next on my recap list: Wild Romance

I will drop it with a quickness if it sucks but I guess I have a new drama to recap in January. :)

Made Of Honor Is A Horrible Movie...

... but this kiss. I can't help watching it over and over again. ;)

What drama should I watch next? What's next on my recap list?!?!

I tried the Ramyun drama but kinda lost interest in the second episode. Maybe I will attempt another go at some point. But these days I've been kind of out of the loop kdrama-wise so I wonder what's airing soon and what I'll be recapping next. So lost these days...

Obsessed with Greek Yogurt

I only ever eat regular Yoplait yogurt but I was hungry one day at work and all that was left was Yoplait's 2x protein plain Greek yogurt. It was nasty on its own but with some splenda, was pretty damn awesome.

Then they replenished our supplies with Chobani Greek Yogurt and now I am hooked. It'll be weird to get fat on Greek yogurt but that's what I see in my future if I don't stop soon. Hmm... mmm... yummy!

Dan and Blair

Why can't she see how much he loves her? Everyone but her knows at this point. Everything for her is ChuckChuckChuckChuckChuck. Girl, open your damn eyes.

And it slays me that this is literally one of the worst shows on TV but DB are perfection and I'm not even sure they will properly go there. UGH!

Why Can't I Stop Laughing?

And it's been since yesterday.
“I’ll have you know that I’ve been referred to as the modern-day Robin Hood by many of my colleagues.”
“Really. You rob from the rich and give to the poor?”
“I con from the rich and give to myself when I’m at my poorest.”
It's William Shatner on Psych playing Juliet's dad. For some reason, this dialogue just slayed me. LOL

Current Show: Castle

It's just a cute, comedic procedural (not as funny as Psych, though) but I'm enjoying the Daddy-Daughter relationship. As well as Grandma-Son one. I suppose people are shipping Castle and Beckett but I'm still on Season 1 and it's all about the family for me.

Is Dair Finally Happening?

All I know is right now, Penn (who plays Dan) and Leighton (who plays Blair) are filming at JFK and she's in her wedding dress.

And last week or so, she was filmed running out (and looking for someone) in her wedding dress. 2+2 = 4 everywhere but Gossip Girl so I am still skeptical.

Revenge "Love Triangle"

I am quite easy when it comes to American shows and their couples. More often than not, I just go with the flow. Well, when it comes to Revenge, it's a different story because I like neither pairing.

Well, he's just part of her plan and he seems to be very stupid especially as how easy it is for Tyler to manipulate him. I can't invest any emotions in this relationship when it's not even real.
Even though he's cute, he's one creepy dude. Who carries a torch for some chick he met when he was 8 and hasn't seen since? Then now he feels this "connection" with Emily and we are supposed to believe it's cosmic or whatever because they are soulmates or something? Give me a break! And worse, I am not feeling the chemistry the show is trying to push on me. Sorry guys, but it's not working.
The only pairing I like is Emily/Nolan
He's most likely gay and she treats him like a necessary evil yet I find their scenes way more interesting than those with the other two. If we can't get romance, I hope we get a nice friendship.
And lastly, the Real Emily/Jack. I haven't seen the last episode yet but I hear that she might be hooking up with Jack as Amanda. Well, I hope they fall in love for real (and he's an idiot for liking her just because he thinks she's Amanda) and have loads of babies!

Tyler Is Such A Shit-Stirrer

I just started watching Revenge and OMG, that Tyler dude is such a shit stirrer. WTF is his deal? Makes me want to find some spoilers. UGH!

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Dair happening?

Looks like Dan is going to try to confess his feelings to her. My poor baby, but I think he won't be able to which is fine because the longer they stretch it, the higher the chances we will get some good Dair!

Damn Spam And Wordpress

We get like 5 times as much spam comments than actual comments these days. What gives? How can I wake up to see 30 spam comments? Goodness.

It will not bring Michael back but...

... I'm glad Conrad Murray was found guilty. I didn't follow the case at all but the principle of it... injecting someone with propofol when you are not even an anesthesiologist, a doctor that can't even perform CPR, how he tried to hide evidence... Are you kidding me?  Glad he was found guilty and hope he doesn't get probation or whatever. He must go to jail.

Which would you choose?

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

It looks like they are actually going ahead with the DAIR. LOL

Spoiler pics:

And then he gets hit by a car (LOL) and she witnesses it. LMAO. Gosh, this show. But if this is really the case then I guess this incident will force her feelings out. She watches CHUCK almost get hit. Of course...

In Time With You Episode 6 Recap...

... on Couch Kimchi! And we've passed the 1/2 million mark! Now, if only that was in $$...

Saturday, October 22, 2011

I've been in a Toni Braxton mood today and loving every minute of it...

... to be honest, there was a time I was a super fan. Anyway, these two songs kind of go together:

And another one:

And a favorite of mine:

I guess I'm in a broken-hearted kind of mood today.

Thursday, October 20, 2011

I created a tumblr for Couch Kimchi...

... but at this point it's like 100% DAIR. I need help.
 Nope, that isn't a real kiss - they wouldn't DAIR - but a reenactment from a book. Yeah, whatever. Give us real DAIR although I did enjoy the kiss :D. The very soapy dialogue beforehand (Dan, be a better writer) I could live without.

Thursday, October 13, 2011



But we have to ask - who do you think Dan's soul mate is?

“Blair, actually. Definitely. I think Blair is Dan’s soul mate. I don’t know if they’re ever going to get together, but I’ll tell you that I’ve never enjoyed any scenes on the show as much as those scenes with Leighton Meester, on a strictly intellectually as an actor. There’s a whole other thing—like everything that happened early on in the show, like the obvious Dan and Serena stuff, that moved me in a different way for obvious reasons, but strictly as an actor, those scenes with Blair are the best.”

Now, if only the retarded writers could feel the same way. UGH.

"Champagne For My Real Friends, Real Pain For My Sham Friends",

Lmao. I need to read more so I don't have to Google "Francis Bacon" when I see quotes like the above.

I have yet to see it but from screencaps it looks like that bitch, Maggie, called Da Ren and You Ching took the call. Serves her right. LOL

I didn't even watch the episode but look at these screencaps. Now I have to freaking watch.

Dramaland seems to have slowed down...

... or is it just me?  Hmm. I am contemplating my first sageuk but we shall see. I did try to watch Emperor of the Sea when it was hot but I couldn't even last 5 minutes. What's fun about watching people ride horses?

I guess I will try I'm A Flower, Too and 1000 Days Promise when they air but I can already envision myself dropping them at some point. I still have to finish Greatest Love (yeah, yeah, the last two episodes have been on hold forever), Romance Town (I might just watch the final episode), Scent of A Woman and Protect The Boss. Then there are a bunch of Japanese dramas I have on hold. I can't even say, "So many dramas so little time" because even when I have the time, I still don't watch them. What do I do when I have time to kill? HMMMMMMM,

Sunday, October 2, 2011

I tried Blogger's Dynamic Views and...

... while it looks cute at first, I hate that it doesn't allow me to preview posts nor make any edits to the layout like the other themes do. Plus I chose "Flipcard" but it saved it as "Magazine." I know readers can choose whichever format they like but I wanted them to first see "Flipcard" whenever they visited my blog.

It also showed me that I should try to have an image in every post. Er... don't think I can do that.

Thinking About Writing Fiction Again

This happens every few months, right? LOL. Well, I think I'm going to try to write a short story every month. I've just pooled my kdrama-related fiction on a blog and hope to update that with a short story each month starting in November. We'll see if I actually do it. LOL

Korean Drama Fanfiction

This also came about because there are so many things we all want to do with our lives but never do, aren't there? I'm trying to move from simply dreaming to doing.

It definitely helps that I've been writing on Couch Kimchi for a while. Even if they are only recaps, it does teach me how to collect my thoughts and keeps me writing.

Friday, September 30, 2011

Let me be the one that you turn to...

... someone you can rely on. Closer each day, Home and Away

I can't even remember any of the characters from this show but I still love the theme song

Of course the Neighbours theme couldn't compete

Tuesday, September 27, 2011


Yeah, these writers will ruin this even more but I'm just going to watch their scenes and ignore the rest of this crapfest (like I did last season). And wait till they completely kill it.

Oh, and she's pregnant with someone's baby. 99.99999999% sure it's not Dan's cos I doubt they've even slept together. So that pretty much kills it. This is worse than Days Of Our Lives.

In Time With You Episode 2

Okay, the story has really begun to move and I think I love it. Will have to watch properly later but so far, he's practically a part of her family, they are very close and she keeps imagining him as more than a friend although she refuses to acknowledge it. Just because he said, "I May Not Love You?" Come on, You Ching! That was so long ago and you guys didn't even know each other well back then.

I feel this song will describe Da Ren and You Ching's relationship in "In Time With You"

Yeah, it's 98 degrees and also my first time of hearing this song.

Friday, September 23, 2011

I'm in the mood for a Bollywood Movie

It's looking like I might watch "Delhi Belly" but I'm more interested in a romance :(

In Time With You Recaps

Yup, I'm writing them at Couch Kimchi.

Zenkai Girl Episode 11

Pitaro's so cute
I'm just skimming but it looks like in the end, everything I didn't want to happen is happening - Shindo let her go, she proposes to Shota and then after she proposes, he gets manly and says that it's a man's job to propose. Oh really? Then he proposes. My Japanese is beyond sketchy so I could be getting it wrong but it looks that way. Then she accepts with a handshake. LOL
It does irk me a little that people rarely date in dramas. It took you guys 11 episodes to finally confess your feelings and the next step is marriage? Just because you like someone doesn't mean they would work as a life partner but I suppose I am using too much real world logic here. But at least they didn't give us a crappy kiss.

Anyway, the Chinese subbed video can be found here.
Subs have been released. She's FAST!

Zenkai Girl Episode 11

I just got this off tumblr. Yay, proper kiss.
She's in a wedding dress and he's in his chef's uniform. WTH? LOL

Zenkai Girl Episode 11 Preview

Just skip the first 30 seconds


Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Go Gaga!

lol. She sure is enjoying her fame.

This is a 29-year old?

Damn, LeAnn!

Zenkai Girl Episode 10

I couldn't find any links last night so I haven't watched it yet. Good news is the soft subs are already out! The Chinese subbed stream can be found here. I can't really comment since I'm yet to watch but from what I understand, things have gone from bad to worse. WTF?

Monday, September 5, 2011

Zenkai Girl Episode 9

I watched it live even though it was buffering like crazy so I can't say I got everything. 
Good things: The focus is finally back on the romance. Wakaba confessed to Shota.
Bad things: Shindo had a private chat with Shota. After the confession, Shota walked off with Soyoko. LMAO. Of course this makes him a pure bastard because he's using the poor girl.
And then next week he's hugging her like this. WTF is his problem? LOL
If they don't end up together it will be a fail drama but let's just say I'm not the biggest fan of Shota's weakness so on a certain level, I'm okay with this character not ending up with Wakaba. But we all know this is just the angst used to stretch out the story. How many episodes does this drama even have? And Ririka will be back next week.

The Chinese subbed video can be viewed here.

Zenkai Girl Episode 8

I only skimmed it but looks like an emotional episode for Wakaba (it's all about her dad). But how come when she's crying (it was her turn this week), she has to be the one to lean on Shota and hold him first, huh? But at least he held her hand. Are they going to make out at this rate??!?!?!
In ep 9, Wakaba finally confessed. Can't wait to see that.

The Chinese-subbed ep can be viewed here.

Closer Than Close

For some reason I just started humming this song. Didn't even know who sang it but thank God for Google!

Pyaar Ka Punchnama Hilarious Scene

The first 6 mins or so

If he frustrated or what? LOL

Friday, August 26, 2011

Lol, I just saw this on a blog and found it hilarious...

... cos it's true! LOL. Why can't the girl hug back? :D

Park Min Young and Lee Min Ho

So I didn't even know that PMY had so many antis. While most of the reaction to their dating news is positive, there are some negative comments too (as would be expected). Seems that some Min Ho fans don't think PMY is good enough because of her facial reconstruction. Well, we all know that plastic surgery isn't uncommon in the K-ent industry and most of those women get married or in relationships so clearly their facial work doesn't hinder their dating lives that much.

Secondly, men just don't care that much about what a woman did as far as they are attracted to her. That's just something I've learned over the years:

Guy: She's hot
Me: Well, she's had her boobs and nose done.
Guy: So what? She's still hot.

Unless the woman looks like an alien, guys don't care... hello, we all know they are shallow. And frankly speaking, the more I get into K-ent, the less I care as well because it's not my face they are cutting up. I just wish they didn't feel the need to have cosmetic surgery for their jobs and wish they didn't feel pressured to do it but it's not something I judge them for. So I don't think a woman doesn't deserve to be with a hot, wonderful, etc etc guy just because she's had work done.

In Time With You Eng-Subbed Trailer

Yep, he's loved her the whole time. Can't wait!

Zenkai Girl Episode 7

I got to watch it live today and it was a good one - very emotional. Although the Pitaro's Mama story has proven to be rather undramatic but it's all good.

Sunday, August 21, 2011

They should stop teasing us with posters and just air the drama now!

Yes, this is another In Time With You post. I hope I don't hype myself out of enjoying it.

In Time With You Teaser

So this is definitely on my watch list

I think he's been in love with her for a long time.

We need more OTP moments (Zenkai Girl Episode 6 Spoilers)

The episode was more about Hinata and her mom but I want more Wakaba-Shota moments.

Even though Shota pushes Soyoko off him, Wakaba doesn't see it because she's distracted. She runs home and starts to work to make herself busy but she starts to cry without realizing it.
Hinata's mom has to work out of town so she has to spend some nights with Wakaba. Hinata makes them spend the second night with Shota and this is what we get:
And this:
And Wakaba dreams that the person who'd confessed to her while she slept is none other than the good ol' principal. LOL. But only because Shota planted it in her head earlier when she asked him who spoke to her while she slept.
Hinata is devastated when she learns that her mom won't be able to see her in the school play and Shota comforts her. I wish he could become her real dad. :(
More Shota and Hinata moments after he talks her mom into coming and Hinata freaks out when she does.
The play is a success and Hinata clears up the confusion for Wakaba that it was Shota with her while she slept and not the principal. She realizes he confessed to her and runs to him.
But she finds Ririka there and gets mad at herself, I think, calling herself an idiot for liking him (I think).
And this makes her agree to marry Shindo.
And the preview has her flaunting her diamond at Shota.
Wakaba, grow up!
