First, I owe all these lovelies who nominated me for this award a huge apology for taking so long to respond. I went into hibernation for a lot longer than anticipated.
Second, to anyone still reading this blog, I’m sorry too for taking a leave of absence not fully planned or accounted for.
Life gets in the way, yunno? Or more accurately, feeling like I wasn’t in the right headspace to blog. Or rather, not feeling like anything I had to say was worth writing about. And then the side of me that’s full of self-loathing emerged with her devil horns and said to me, “No one reads this blog anyway. So go ahead, just keep on being lazy.” Silly me, I listened to her.
Also, my drama watching had slowed to a trickle and then came to a screeching halt, so that compounded the rut.
And then I became obsessed with Rurouni Kenshin (aka Samurai X)–the films, the manga, the anime, the EVERYTHING–which sort of took over my life. I even thought of turning this entire blog into a shrine to Kenshin. But that’s another story.
But I recently picked up watching a couple of shows again. So here I am.
TL; DR I’m sorry, I’m back, and here are my answers to your questions: Continue reading
Episode 3 – 3rd Cup
Synopsis: Han Kyul is forced to takeover Wang Ja Coffee by his grandmother, egged on by Eun Chan who’s desperate for a job. Eun Chan and Han Kyul get to know each other a little more, while Yoo Joo and Han Seong rekindle their relationship. Eun Chan however, is forced to continue the charade of being a boy in order to keep her job and enlists Manager Hong to keep her secret. Manager Hong and Han Kyul clash right away with the latter wanting to overhaul the entire concept of the cafe–a rename to Coffee Prince, all-male staff, and a new menu selling waffles. Renovations begin and since Han Kyul is put on a tight budget and timeline, he recruits his friend Ha Rim to help with the re-design. Min Yeop rounds out the new crew, but screws up an order for coffee beans which Eun Chan takes the fall for. Han Kyul tears her a new one asking her to leave if she can’t handle the job.

Well, I’m back with another round of questions to answer for the Liebster Award. Shucks, I’m really chuffed yet again by the shout-outs, especially since these are from blogs I love and read all the time. So let’s do this!
1. If you could write the script for a drama, what would it be about?
I recently heard a story about a fortune teller who tells fortunes using a deck of cards. The cards need to be buried with the fortune teller and then dug up after a few days by someone she’d chosen to pass them on to. And I thought, now that would make a great character!
So, my drama would be something along the lines of a fortune teller who goes in search for someone to pass on her powers to when she finds out that she’s dying. After a string of rejects she stumbles on a young woman who is a con artist with whom she inexplicably has a connection. Throw in a hot client-turned-love interest and another sidekick they pick up along the way, as this rag tag bunch go on their merry way trying to prevent a murder that the fortune teller has foretold. It’ll have lots of womance–our leads learn from and heal each other–lots of comedy, thrills and spills, heart, and some sexy kisses. But it ends with the fortune teller’s death. I haven’t filled in all the details yet and I doubt I can since I’ve never been one to write fiction, so if anyone out there cares to fill in the blanks, be my guest!
For a drama I deeply love and the one I credit for making me fall down the rabbit hole of drama addiction, Coffee Prince could do with a little more love on this blog. I haven’t even written a review of it, mostly because I fear being unable to adequately describe in words my love and affection for this show. But since this is a new year and there’s no better time to try new things, I thought I’d rewatch this show and compile a guide of sorts, which as you will see, is really a collection of
fangirl gushing musings.
I’ve also included a list of songs from each episode from both on and off the official soundtrack, since the music was flawless, and one of the many reasons why this drama is one of my favourites of all time. I’ve shamefully stolen from the amazing work of Dramabeans for this, filling in some gaps where I noticed them. Continue reading
[Shucks, there’ve been a couple more (thanks again Snow and Ahjusshi Fan!)so I’ve updated this page to keep the Liebsters together. Scroll down if you’re interested ;)]
Well lookie here! I’m really chuffed and grateful for Erl at A Mix of Anything and Everything for nominating me for the Liebster Award (why do I feel like I’m writing my Oscar acceptance speech?).
I know everybody says this but it is true that I’d never really thought anyone would read anything on my blog, let alone receive something like this. So I am downright humbled and well pleased that this has come my way. So Erl, I shower you with rose petals, and same goes for anyone who has ever read and commented here on my little corner of the world. Everyone gets rose petals! Continue reading
