[Travel] Short trip to Sri Lanka

DSC_0688

It’s been a while since I last updated, and that’s because I was busy travelling overseas for work. Sri Lanka is famous for its tea (I’m a tea lover), its glorious temples and safaris, so I was somewhat eager to see this country for myself during my short stint there that lasted no longer than a week. I didn’t get to see a lot since I wasn’t there for leisure, so I’ll just highlight the few attractions I got to see.  Continue reading “[Travel] Short trip to Sri Lanka”

[Translation] Squad 38: Seo In Guk, Ma Dong Seok – 1st Look Vol. 112

The Men’s Cheerful Drama

1stlook_38sagi01

A meeting between two men who seem like they will never be compatible with each other in this life. One of them is a tax official known for his sincerity, the other is a legendary swindler who doesn’t know about failure. Because of brazen tax defaulters, the two board the same ship and embark on a chaotic voyage. But alas, the meeting between the two of them, who share many things in common, is a wonderful one right from the start.

[Translation] Seo In Guk – The Celebrity 2016 January issue interview

Seo In Guk is returning to the small screen this June with his upcoming OCN drama Squad 38, where he plays a conman who assists the police in catching errant taxpayers. It is hence befitting that this interview — though published way back in January — was written along the theme of “naughtiness”. Looking forward to seeing him channel his inner bad boy on OCN!

[Translation] “Pied Piper” Shin Ha Kyun, Yoo Jun Sang, Jo Yoon Hee – Vogue Korea March 2016 interview

Before the drama “Pied Piper” went on air, the three leads — Shin Ha Kyun, Yoo Jun Sang and Jo Yoon Hee — had a fashion pictorial and interview done with Vogue Korea as part of promotions for the drama. It is a pity that this magazine feature (just like the drama) was “lost in translation” and went unnoticed by many, likely because the three of them do not seem to have a strong overseas fanbase. Some of these talented but less popular actors do deserve some attention from us too! And if you haven’t watched Pied Piper, I do encourage you to watch it! 😀 

Lost In Translation

We do not reach out even when they speak up; we do not hear even when we prick up our ears to listen. Within the painting that Pied Piper’s Shin Ha Kyun, Yoo Jun Sang and Jo Yoon Hee had walked into, a story of change is beginning.

[Travel] Visiting the film set of korean sageuks – MBC Dramia / Dae Jang Geum Park

Ah~ how nice is it to be back in South Korea after 3 years! People always ask me why I keep going back to Korea, but there’s just so many things to see and rediscover in this vast country. And as long as I continue to love Korean entertainment with all my heart, I’ll definitely be a regular visitor.

One place that I didn’t manage to visit last time was MBC Dramia, which should be a compulsory stop on the itinerary of any Kdrama fan, especially for those who like sageuks (historical dramas). I enjoyed watching Empress Ki a lot, and that drama made me want to visit this place all the more. I’m happy to say that I finally got to check this off my bucket list during my trip to Korea this time!
