Drama Crack: Flower Boy Next Door [TVN]

 Mondays and Tuesdays just got terribly exciting! I started watching the first few episodes and that time I still could wait patiently for subs. After a few episodes, I started reading recaps and raws. By episode 7 & 8, I was waiting for live recaps on kdrama forums. Okay, I am that ballistic about this TVN drama. And guess what tomorrow is Monday!

This drama just hits all the right notes with me so far! It has a lovely music score and even though it's not a huge production but the people are relatable (is that a real word?), even if they are a little over the top! I especially like the song that Park Shin Hye sings (it sounds like her voice) in Episodes 3 and 7 but it hasn't been released yet. TVN just keeps producing a lot of dramas that are right up my street these days, what with Reply 1997 and I Need Romance 2.

Fo shizzle!
My favorite characters have got to be Enrique Geum, Go Dok Mi and Oh Jin Rak. I secretly love Do Hwi too because that woman is hilarious! Even if she was a bitch in school in the past, I believe that if two people used to be best friends in the past, a small part of that former person will still remain. People change but not that much. Speaking from personal experience I guess, but friendships can be mended.

The sleepless editor!
 Dong Hoon has excellent comedic timing and his bro-ness with Jin Rak is amusing to watch. I also love the sleepless editor! Sometimes, looking at the way she is completely invested in the webtoon Jin Rak is producing, I can relate especially with the way I feel about this drama. :-P Seo Young seems like a plot device here and someone who is used for Product Placement fillers. Winter jackets, TVs and shoes anyone? So far, the Japanese guy is just someone who smiles a lot and Tae Joon is a tall, gorgeous statue and under-utilized! Apparently in the real webtoon, he had a larger character arc.

This post is probably just an excellent excuse to post adorable pictures of the cast! :)

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…
