Crazily Impatient over Queen In Hyun's Man Ep12

It's been a while since I've been like this over a KDrama, and the male lead is not my oppas Jang Geun Seok, Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo. 

It stars Ji Hyun Woo (his first KDrama on my radar) and Yoo In Na (whom I watched as the best friend of female lead in Secret Garden). So nothing really special but their team up is sooooo sweet I had to watch the raw (un-subbed) version of Ep 12 and still get giddy over their supposedly date. 

Pls someone sub ep 12 of Queen In Hyun's Man!

Wed-Thurs KDrama Marathon

I finally had time to watch KDramas and unknowingly chose 3 KDrama of the same Wed-Thurs timeslot:

Rooftop Prince

The King 2 Hearts

Queen In-Hyun’s Man

The first 2 will be ending by this week while QIHM will air eps 9-10. I have to wait for at least 2 days to be able to watch it with English subs so my weekend will be another KDrama Marathon.

Is there a good Mon-Tues or weekend KDrama so I could compensate the waiting time?

Ever heard of boy band One Direction? If not, you’re so not in (like me), so let me introduce you to the hottest boy band in the UK and also in the US, the One Direction.

Meet the members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Originally auditioned for The X Factor as solo acts but was later formed into a group. They didn’t win the actual competition but their popularity skyrocketed and was immediately signed in Simon Cowell’s Syco Records. They must be really good if the latter invested on them.

Their Up All Night album includes What Makes You Beautiful, Gotta Be You and One Thing became instant hits both in the UK and US even landing the coveted number one spot in the US Billboards.

One Direction will have their World Tour later or early next year but as early as now Concert Tickets were being sold fast. If you want 1D tickets Cheap, hurry and grab one now.

These boys, age ranging from 18 to 21 are called as the next British Invasion. If you’re as curious as I am to why, then better check out their official site. I saw some cute dolls, posters and other items being sold online.

For Adults Only

This post brought to you by Vianda. All opinions are 100% mine.

I still get shocked with local drama series because it mostly contains violence and adult scenes. I am no prude but I still think it shouldn't be seen by general patronage viewers. Even if they place a notice or rating with Parental Guidance it shouldn't be the case. That's why I really like Korean, Japanese and Taiwanese dramas because if there is a need for those scenes they made it as explicit as possible.

Back in the real world, it's not anymore taboo to discuss about sexual activities and male enhancement. Being such, a new drug Enzyte 24/7 is introduced to help male regain confidence in their sexual performance. It helps promotes critical blood flow and guard against nutrient deficiencies that may impact volume and potency. The new advance formula guarantees peak performance and rock solid results that is committed to the health, safety and enhancement of the users.


Enzyte 24/7 is not a drug and only contains substances that are naturally occurring. Of course, results may vary from one user to another. But the general sentiments are favorable, check the different commercials available.

Currently Watching: The Moon That Embraces The Sun

More appropriate status: Currently Sobbing on death of Prince Yang Myung.

Prince Yang Myung (Jung Il Woo)

King Lee Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun)

I love both the King and half bro Prince Yang Myeong that's why I cannot move on why the Prince have to die. He was never a real threat to the King position because he never wanted it on the first place. Though what Prince Yang Myeong did was heroic, selfless and idiotic at the same time I guess it was needed in the story. So while I'm still sobbing, I'll give it a rest.

The King & Queen Yeon Woo (Han Ga In)

The King and Queen did get their happy ever after ending. After all the tragedies, conspiracy and treason everything was dealt with and kept on their proper places. This KDrama deals more on fate and destiny, that no matter how one tries to mess with destiny it will still find its rightful ending.
