Variety: We Got Married Global Edition

 Variety programs are fun! None as entertaining recently as We Got Married (Global Edition). I do love an episode of Running Man and 2 Days 1 Night from time to time but I find that the one I can't bear to miss every week is WGM! The Korean version never really interested me except when they had superstar couples like the Adam's couple (Jo-kwon/Ga-in), Lee Jang-woo/T-ara's Eun-jung, Lee Teuk/Kang So-ra, Jung Yong-hwa/Seo-hyun and Nichkun/Victoria.

What kind of show is We Got Married you might ask? This might come across as pretty cheesy, I couldn't wrap my head around the concept either circa the pilot season with Alex & Shin Ae. The show pairs up Korean celebrities and shows them a bit of what married life is like.Each week the couple is given missions to complete and you get to see them in candid interviews, talking about feelings.

One might argue that Nichkun and Victoria were probably the first ever global edition couple since they are Thai and Chinese respectively. Producers paid attention when they turned out to be one of the most popular couples. In the current show, we have Fujii Mina (most popular for her appearance in a TVXQ music back when they were still relevant) paired with FT Island's Hong Ki and 2PM's Taecyeon paired up with Taiwanese star Gui Gui.

The show is amusing so far with Hong Ki and Fujii Mina always being really shy and sweet with each other. I had a few laugh-out-loud moments with Taec/Gui Gui because that woman is hilarious and Taec somehow puts up with it. It's something you have to watch to really understand. At first I thought the couples look mismatched somehow during the press conference.

Catch it on ONE HD every Friday at 7.45pm. They usually show last week's episode first and the current week's episode later. If you don't have Astro's Beyond HD, their official Youtube channel also airs clips of each episode. Mind you, these are edited and shortened, sadly.

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...

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…
