Eye Candy Friday: Yeon Mi Jung

Posted September 9, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week, I’m featuring Yeom Mi Jung from My Liberation Notes. I just really liked her character and portrayal in this drama. She was a huge draw for me tuning in every week. The show itself was pretty heavy but I never missed an episode.

I’ve seen mention around Twitter that this show was really slow and while I agree that the story moved slowly, I thought the pacing felt right with the kind of story they were telling. I thought Kim Ji Won hit this character out of the park. She was my very favorite part of this show and I had a giant girl crush on her. Love her!

The Wednesday Five: K-Drama Girl Crushes

Posted September 15, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that.

This week’s Wednesday Five will feature my top 5 k-drama girl crushes.

1. Lee Hyeri

Filmography: Reply 1988, My Roommate is a Gumiho, Record of Youth, My Punch Drunk Boxer, Monstrum, When Flowers Bloom I Think of the Moon

Lee Hyeri is my top girl crush right now. I’ve only seen her in two dramas and I’ve never heard her music before but holy cow, the two characters that she played made me a huge fan of her work as an actress. My favorite character of hers is hands down Deok Sun from Reply 1988 but she was fantastic as Lee Dam in My Roommate is a Gumiho as well. She’s a gorgeous woman with great chemistry with all of the actors and actresses that she’s acted with and when she popped up in Record of Youth, I thought she was gorgeous and that was what prompted me to watch Reply 1988. I’m so glad that I did because I hella loved her and Park Bo Gum in that one.

2. Park Bo Young

Filmography: Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, Abyss, Oh My Ghostess, On Your Wedding, The Silenced, Doom at Your Service, Concrete Utopia

Bo Young made her way onto my radar in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I absolutely loved that show and the chemistry between Bo Young and Park Hyung Shik was off the chains good. Because of that show, I’ve been watching her stuff and keeping track of when she’s got new things coming out. I haven’t watched all of her stuff but I do enjoy her acting and think she’s absolutely adorable. I’m a fan of hers and she’s definitely one of my girl crushes.

3. Park So Dam

Filmography: Record of Youth, Cinderella and the Four Knights, A Beautiful Mind, Parasite, Fukuoka, The Silenced

Park So Dam came onto my radar after I watched Parasite. I thought she was spectacular in that movie (she made me feel so many emotions!) and because of that, I watched Record of Youth, Cinderella and the Four Knights and then A Beautiful Mind. I enjoyed all of those shows though some of them ended on notes that made me scratch my head. I really enjoy her acting and her vibe so I’ve been crushing on her lately.

4. Moon Ga Young

Filmography: True Beauty, Recipe for Youth, Find Me in Your Memory, Tempted, Twenty Again, Eclipse

I really enjoyed Moon Ga Young in True Beauty. There were times when I thought she did a lot of stupid shit but overall, I enjoyed her acting and the chemistry she had with Cha Eun Woo. I tried watching Tempted but that was a disaster of the first few episodes so I quit it but I am looking forward to supporting Ga Young in her future projects. She’s great.

5. Kim Go Eun

Filmography: Goblin, Cheese in the Trap, The King: Eternal Monarch, Tune in For Love, Coin Locker Girl, Yumi’s Cell

I love this lady. I watched her in Goblin and thought she was fan-freaking-tastic so I just kept watching her stuff and watching her stuff and watching her stuff. She’s been pretty great in every single thing that I’ve watched her in and I am really looking forward to what else she’ll be doing in the future. I absolutely love her vibe both in her dramas, but also on her social media and photoshoots. She seems like such a sweetheart and I am a big fan of hers. Love this one!
