Keeping the Faith 6
What a week it has been! I caught a cold which gave me time to catch up on dramas, namely Cheongdamdong Alice, My Daughter Seoyoung, and Missing You. Actually it was more like I actually got to see them the day the aired instead of weeks later. Yay for cold and bed rest! Missing You continues to be strangely addicting and I’m happy to report that Jung-woo has stopped being grabby and started giving Soo-yeon her space. My Daughter Seoyoung is your typical weekend family drama but since it is typical, as usual it’s perfectly addicting (my Park Hae-jin!). Alice, I’ve written about in a separate post.
I’ve also had time to do some pleasure reading and I’ve taken up “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” As you may have guessed, it’s a biographical portrait of Abraham Lincoln and his cabinet, and I call it a pleasure reading because Doris Kearns Goodwin, the author, writes in a very simple and clear prose. I expected dense and convoluted history but the book is engaging without being superfluous. I highly recommend it for an informative and enjoyable read.
I also read the shoujo “Say ‘I love You’,” which is such a typical shoujo with the most popular guy in high school falling in love with the outcast girl because of her roundhouse kick to his face. It’s very unoriginal and the mangaka just jumps to the message of the week without developing a very good story; yet, I devoured it. I can’t help it; I’m a sucker for shoujo.
Another thing I fangirled this week was Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love.” Plain and simple, it’s just a good song. Originally by Bob Dylan.
I also bring you two vids from my City Hunter youtube browsing days.
This one is like a opening credits to a weekly American drama.
This one puts together some of Lee Yoon-sung’s awesome faces with moody music.
This is one of my favorite Lee Minho photos featuring the things I like most about him- his legs. He had to stand a step below to match the height for the photograph. Hehehehe.
Shall I share another one of my loves? Kang Ji-hwan, in “Runaway Cop.”
What did you guys fangirl this week?
