49 Days: Please be good!

I've finally found something watchable! Usually anything Dramabeans recommends is usually a good watch and 49 Days appears to land in that category. Four episodes in and I'm hooked.

Lee Yo Won is very endearing and I like her scenes way more than Nam Gyu Ri's, who I find incredibly creepy and plastic (I got used to it after a while). Bae Soo Bin is doing an awesome job as a villain and as for Jo Hyun Jae, playing the gruff but caring Han Kang, I'm SOLD! It also helps that the Reaper (details) is the smexy Jung Il Woo and goes around pushing on people's buttons in the afterlife as a Scheduler, on his fancy motorbike.

Brushing aside a paranormal plotline which involves a girl, wrongly a car crash victim before her time is up, having to collect teardrops from 3 people who sincerely love her besides her family (a task which looks even more formidable as each day passes), we have a light comedy smattered with obvious cliffhangers.

It must be in the way the plot ekes out tiny details about the GRAND PLOT behind it all as well as each character's back stories which were very reminiscent of another drama. And no wonder, as this drama is written by none other than So Hyun Kyung who was also behind other silver screen gems like Shining Inheritance (LIKE) and Prosecutor Princess (SUPER LIKE). The only problem is that her dramas get really weepy towards the ending.

TWO good reasons to watch this:

Reaper Boy (Jung Il Woo)

Han Kang (Jo Hyun Jae)

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...

Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)

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…
