The Wednesday Five: K-Drama Male Besties

Posted November 16, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 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 the five k-drama male characters that I want to be besties with. These are male characters that will round up my bestie squad quite nicely, I think.

1. Jo Eun Seob from The King: Eternal Monarch

I can’t remember much about this drama, which sucks because it’s a Kim Go Eun drama but you know what I do remember? Jo Eun Seob. I remember how much I loved him. In every single scene, he was such a delight. No matter which world he was in, he stole the show. Every single time. I would have the best time with him. We would laugh so much and I know that he would have my back no matter what cause he was loyal to the soil. He’d make a great bestie and I would never forget to tell him how handsome he is, haha.

2. Ryu Dong Ryong from Reply 1988

Life would be so much fun with Ryu Dong Ryong as your best friend. He’s one of the funniest characters I’ve ever watched but more than how silly he is, there were moments in Reply 1988 where he was also very insightful and gave some of the best advice to his friends. He was loyal and an all around fun character so why wouldn’t I want to be his best friend? He can also sing the hell out of Stevie Wonder’s I Just Called to Say I Love You.

3. Kim Ju Meok from Crash Landing On You

Kim Ju Meok from Crash Landing on You is me. We would be such great friends. We already have so much in common. We love South Korean dramas and we rope everything in our lives to a Korean Drama plot point and when he meets his K-Drama favorite actress?? I about died because he is all of us. I want to be his bestie because we’d spend our days eating jjajangmyeon, watching k-dramas and spinning wild conspiracy theories about our favorite dramas. It would be great!

4. Lee Sang Sik from Gaus Electronics

This guy is a riot. He’s also extremely unlucky and I want to befriend his ol’ goofy ass all the same. He’s such an optimistic person, and the way that he kept pissing everyone at the office off with his personality and the way that he’s a bit of an airhead would round out my friendship circle for the better. I would love to tease him about his love story with Cha Na Rae and it would be a whole lot of fun to hang out with him, Na Rae, and Aziz.

5. Woo Gwang Nam from Love in Contract

Gwang Nam’s a great best friend to Sang Eun that I know that we would be great besties as well. I’m pretty mean in real life so I would slay all of his dragons for him while he beats everyone up for me because he’s a jiu jitsu teacher. Everyone needs a champion in their lives just like Gwang Nam. I would slay all of his dragons because he is precious. So yeah, we need to be besties.

Who are some male k-drama characters that you want to be besties with?

The Wednesday Five: My K-Drama Besties

Posted October 26, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 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 K-Drama Besties. These are some of my favorite k-drama characters that I would love to be besties with in real life. These characters have captured my heart and I adore them to pieces and know that we would have the best of times if we were really best friends.

1. Ji Eun Tak from Goblin

I want to be besties with Eun Tak because if anyone needed someone in their corner, it was her. I mean, I know that she eventually finds her found family but before she found them, she was living life on her own and I got a mean mouth so I could have stood up for her at school, I could have fought some bitches for her, especially her cousin. I could have definitely fought that bitch. I wanted to protect Eun Tak so much because she was such a sweet person, even with the shitty hand she was dealt. She’s a much better person than I am.

2. Naksu, from Alchemy of Souls

Naksu is a bad bitch and I always want to be around bad bitches. Naksu is such a bad bitch that she could protect me from anything and everyone. And since I have this big ol’ mean mouth, with Naksu, I could run it without fear of consequence because having Naksu as a best friend, she’d handle all of my light weight, haha. Let’s not talk about my love for her boo thang. LMAO.

3. Sung Deok Sun from Reply 1988

Deok Sun is one of the funniest and most fun female leads that I’ve ever watched. She was funny as shit, silly as shit, and just looks like she’d be a good time, no matter what we were doing. She’d be the best best friend because of everything I mentioned. We all need a goofy bestie to make life more interesting and Deok Sun fits that bill perfectly. Let’s not talk about my love for her boo thang either, haha.

4. Na Hee Do from Twenty Five, Twenty One

Ain’t nobody as loyal to the soil as Na Hee Do. She’s one of those best friends that take all of your secrets to the grave so she’d be a great bestie. She’s also really good at fencing so I’d carry her bags so that I could travel all over the world so she could play and I could see the world. It would be a fun friendship, I promise. I would be her loudest cheerleader at all of her matches, too. See? So much fun.

5. Jin Yeong Seo from A Business Proposal

I really loved Jin Yeong from A Business Proposal. I thought she was a great best friend to the main female lead. She was thoughtful, she was funny, and just the right amount of silly that would be a good time. She’s the kind of bestie that sleepovers were made for. We would have so much fun together. Our girls nights in would be full of laughter for sure.

There you have it. The five k-drama characters that I want to be besties with. Who’s on your list?

Eye Candy Friday: Choi Taek from Reply 1988

Posted January 21, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 2 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 Choi Taek from Reply 1988. Park Bo Gum was the reason that I watched that show and Choi Taek was my absolute favorite part of that show. He did such a great job bringing Taek to life and I just adored him so much. Choi Taek was just as precious to me as he was to everyone in he neighborhood and I was Team Taek from the jump. Even though I loved the hell out of Jung Hwan, for me, it was always Taek. These were some of my favorite moments that aren’t spoilerish so..check it out!

Until next week…enjoy!
