K-drama Updates! (September 2012)

I really adore S One TV Asia. They choose such addictive family dramas! These span oh-so-many episodes but they're like crack. I'm vaguely watching Glass Castle and Bride of the Sun still, though Bride of the Sun will be ending soon me thinks. Thank bejeebus, that thing has more than 100 episodes!

Glass Castle on the other hand, I peeked at spoilers (I just had to!) and I'm not sure I want to keep watching  it anymore. It hardly ever budges anyway, and at episode 40, Min Joo still hasn't divorced Joon Sung even though they mentioned her divorce in the general synopsis of the drama. Like wth, with 11 more episodes to go, you'd think they would have done it much earlier on and I wouldn't have to listen to her barmy mother-in-law bossing her around. Igeddit. Marrying into a chaebol family isn't as perfect as it sounds. *rant*

But S One TV Asia, do you know horrible it is to listen to Malay dubbed dramas? And it would be nice to have an option to choose English subtitles. *grumble* Thank you though for recently adding Definitely Neighbours!

One small thing niggling at me. It is HORRIBLY difficult to find DVD boxsets of daily dramas in Malaysia. Are they available online? Because they usually only sell the short trendy dramas at DVD stores.

My current love is: Definitely Neighbours (SBS)! It has an Ojakgyo Brothers feel to it. Also known as My Ex and the Neighbour, I'm currently lovin' this 2010 feel good daily drama but because of my work hours, watching it would mean staying up till midnight. *blink blink* I'll work it out. I think I see Han Chae Ah (Gaksital), Shin Sung Rok (3 Dads, 1 Mom), the evil mother from You Are Beautiful, the pretty ahjumma from the movie Sunny and a bevy of other familiar ahjummas and ahjusshis.

More on Definitely Neighbours later!

This pairing is super adorable!

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
Ignor Ingor

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…
