K-drama Heaven

Why is it that all the good dramas seem to pop up during the month where I'm supposed to be studying for exams? Why? Why? Why? Being the drama freak that I am, I usually watch one kdrama and one jdorama at a time but since I'm almost done with Mei-chan no Shitsuji (completely boring towards the end), I'll consider watching two kdramas at once. Both these dramas are currently airing in South Korea at the moment.

Smile, You [SBS]

First in line is, Smile, You [SBS] which looks better than anticipated! I find that usually over-hyped dramas fall short of expectations and the underdogs rule! *squeal* Jung Kyung Ho &hearts is in this one, if anyone's watched My Lovely Week/All About Love, he was the popstar that the nun was head-over-heels in love with. Loved his comedic timing there which is played to perfection in this drama (he was totally wasted in I'm Sorry I Love You and TODAW). Lee Min Jung (Boys Before Flowers) is much better here too than she was in BBF (I don't exactly like her yet, but I love it when they're together ^^). Episodes out: 4 (Some sites say there will 50 eps [the horror!], while some say 30.)

You're Beautiful [SBS]

Next up is the highly anticipated You Are Beautiful [also SBS, they're on a roll]! An trendy drama about an idol group named A.N.JELL. Actors/Actresses I Love: Jang Geun Suk &hearts and Park Shin Hye. Only the first episode's out (the second will probably air tonight). The whole cross-dressing girl plot still ain't growing old in my book and I'll watch almost anything with JGS (he makes it all worth it somehow, even with the bad hairdo). On the other hand it's really corny... (Hong sisters' trademark) I'm still on the fence on this one, need a couple more episodes to really get into it but there's a good chance I'll be watching it...(who am I kidding?! JGS+idol group+comedy=Vanessa magnet)

You're Beautiful main cast

*sigh* So many dramas and so little time. Orthros no Inu (Nishikido Ryo & Tackey!) will just have to stay on the back-burner for a while because I finally found meself some decent Korean dramas. I only watch Jdoramas if I absolutely can't find a good Kdrama (To watch a Kdrama, you have to invest a lot of time as they're usually 16-24 episodes, so I'm very picky whereas japanese dramas are usually about 10-12 episodes in length).

Ah Vanessa, when will you grow up?

UPDATE(10/10/09): Just finished You're Beautiful 2nd episode... I'm definitely watching this to the end!!! Bring on the lolz!

UPDATE 2: I was getting sick of my old banner so I put together a new one in 5 minutes! Ah, Vanessa, you are useless at photoshop.

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...
Alias bin Mati
Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)
Penus (Oh dear.)
Labiah binti Kondong

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
