K-drama: Baby Faced Beauty (Thoughts)

So on the K-drama front, I haven't been dutifully watching anything recently, just bits and pieces...but I think I'll pick up Baby Faced Beauty again because last night's episode was so cute! (it's episode 10 on KBSWorld and it's the one where she's crying on the ground and then comes penguin hug!)

At first I thought Daniel Choi was overdoing it a little bit on the dorky guy act but it can be quite refreshing and charming sometimes. :) Especially if you look like Daniel Choi.

Elsewhere, you can't imagine my relief when she finally comes clean about her age, I thought the whole idea was preposterous anyway as lying about your age will only backfire. Can't wait to see what happens next week in the aftermath of her confession! Dun dun dun.

P/S: Someone told me that all I blog about is Korean dramas and all I can say is that FYI I usually blog about what I'm thinking about at the moment and to record stuff I did or went through at some point in time (kind of like a diary). I actually meant this blog to be more article-based but those kinds of posts are a bit stuffy. :-P

Other dramas airing at the moment you can check out:
1) I Need Romance (TVN) - Sort of like Sex and the City. A little risque.
2) Romance Town (KBS) - Young Hee!!!
3) City Hunter (SBS) - Too Athena/Iris-ish for me.
4) Miss Ripley (MBC) - Femme fatale con-woman on the loose... It's Micky!
5) The Greatest Love (MBC) - I don't dig the actress or the story. Mianhae, Cha Seung Won oppa!

Take your pick! Nothing really standing out at the moment but I do keep up with BFB, RT and I've just started on INR (Kim Jung Hoon, rawr!).

totally random: is it just me or are k-dramas featuring more older woman/younger man relationships?

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...)

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…
