Uncontrollably Fond was one of my happy pills this past long weekend.  It is a story about two young people who got separated in high school because of circumstances, but managed to bump into each other years later, at a time when the guy Shin Joon Young, played by Kim Woo Bin, discovered that he got only 3 months to live and decided mission to find the woman he cannot forget.  On the the other hand, the lady, portrayed by Suzy Bae was not willing to be reconnected with him.

This is my first drama starring Kim Woo Bin and Suzy.  I was so curious of Kim Woo Bin the past weeks because that he was diagnosed with nasopharangeal cancer.

Some of my unforgetable points and comments of this drama:

—- Joon Young died, while sleeping on the shoulder of Noh Eul. – his death was not so overly dramatic.  Although moments before he died were worth noting:  His mom’s visit,  he send off his mom at the bus stop, they took selfie together

—–Kim Woo Bin was great in this drama.  I can see he was so passionate in his act especially in the last 2 episodes — the tear-jerker episodes. You did well, Woo Bin in spite the low rating from your country

—–Suzy did well but not so well. I rate her acting 5/10 although I think if the director gave the lead male and female more happy moments or episodes (less dramatic shoutings and ungirly-like tantrums) then maybe I would also fell in love with her in this drama.

—–The change (from negative to admiration) of attitude from Ji Tae toward Joon Young was impressive.  He portrayed well as a second lead male.

—–Shooting locations.  I will travel to South Korea in the future and might visit that Island where Shin Joon Young wanted hid from Noh Eul. But his original plan was to bring the girl that he loved in this place, but because Noh Eul like someone else, Joon Young then just went there alone.

If you like melodramatic, romantic series, then Uncontrollably Fond is for you.  Watch it with tissue box with you, especially the last 2 episodes.

The drama was shoot from November 2015 to April 2016, so here are seasonal moments that became my favorite.

Travel Tales

I had this Facebook status a year ago.  Thanks to FB for reminding me what were the thoughts i’ve shared on Facebook. lols!  Oh well, this got me thinking, so I thought of making a post of it.

2014 granted me a trip to the US
2015 granted me my FIRST SOLO BIRTHDAY trip (Macau) and Barkada trip to Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia)
2016 granted me a spring fling with South Korea
2017 pwede JAPAN naman? (I am dreaming of having FUN in JAFUN)

I’ve been to Mainland China, HK, China, Bkk Thailand and KL Malaysia, HCM, Vietnam, and PP, Cambodia years before 2014.

I am thanking God for all these travel blessings and yet I am claiming that this Jafun wish will also come true.

These trips are not free. Flying out of the country is not cheap even if your back and forth tickets only cost less than a thousand pesos. All these places were possible because of hard-earned money.
I am not financially rich, but I am rich with WILL.
As said, “if there is a WILL, there is a way.”

I am really wishing I am somewhere than making this status. lol!
Gotta catch some pokemons now. ^&^

Fast forward to 2017. It is the middle of the year yet I do not have any pending travel anymore.  Why? Because the Lord granted me a trip to South Korea this year.  Who would have thought i’d make it back to Seoul this Year of the Rooster. 🙂

The highlight of the visit to Seoul this year were:  traveling with a big group, the day trip to DMZ and the benchmarking tour at Sahmyook Medical Center (Sahmyook Adventist Hospital).

Fan Girling | Strong Woman: Do Bong-soon

Strong_Woman_Do_Bong-Soon-p2

(Hangul: 힘쎈여자 도봉순; RR: Himssenyeoja Do Bong-soon) is a 2017 South Korean television series starring Park Bo-young in the title role as a woman with superhuman strength, with Park Hyung-sik.  This was aired in JTBC from February 24, 2017 until April 15, 2017.

This drama was not in mind until I saw a CD copy of the whole drama, while walking around the city, the week before last week.  I started watching it middle of this week and done with it after several hours at night for 4 days.

The story is a strange mix of romance, comedy, supernatural, police investigation, and even bloody (scaryyyy)thriller.  I am not a fan of any of the leads but it is nice to discover them.  With the purpose of having a film to watch, I can say I was entertained 7/10.   I think this still makes me a Korean drama fan girl!

Dear Bong Soon,

Thank you for using your special talent for the good.
Thank you also for learning to love Ahn Min Yuk. You are so cute together. It makes me giggle even if In Guk Doo’s face turns sour in jealousy. ha ha ha. Bad me. But yea, I thought you will not be able to like Min Yuk because Guk Do is your childhood crush.

Dear Min Yuk,

I know you are not a high and mighty type of guy. I know that in spite your being a CEO of your company, you can be down to earth but yet frank.  I find humor in your witty lines.  I understand in the whole course of the series that you too have a painful past, but it inspired you to be good at where you are.  I was also surprised that eventually you fell in love with Bong Soon.  Now that you are in love and happy and married, you will forget those who hate you and spite you, especially your selfish brother.  May you be an inspiration to your brothers and family. Continue to be good in your business and with your peers and most especially your cute little love. strong woman, Bong Soon.
