I don’t blog about kpop artist’s performance, but I can’t help but share my opinion about this 2PM performance in the recent SBS GAYO.
They started the performance with the song ‘Electricity‘ that was first shown live ever, with a gangster look ang seriously they killed the stage, most especially their maknae, Chansung. I can honestly say, that 2PM is one of the group who can perform live shows better; with their energy and angst, the audience will really die watching them.
Hayate The Combat Butler is another Chinovela / Taiwanese series to watch for; with its comical plot, fast phased story, easy to like characters, and catchy OST one who’ll watch will surely love this another manga adaptation from Taiwan.
At first, I never thought Park Shin Hye and George Hu have that nice chemistry! George Hu looks like a cute teenager matches he’s character, Xiao Sa (Li Qing Sa) very well. Park Shin Hye on the other hand has a very lovable and child –like face especially when she’s acting like a brat in the story.
Park Shin Hye’s character, Xiao Zhi supposed to have unlovable attitude but I can’t help but love Park Shin Hye in this drama. As always from Stairway to Heaven til now she got me with her acting. Though the story is a lot like Heartstrings; Girl likes boy thingy… Park Shin Hye has given a different flavor in this drama.
George Hu who I have seen in Romantic Princess is another catch! With that look he portrayed well as a loyal, sometimes pitiful butler. Another character who got me was Maria, I don’t know her nor haven’t seen her in the past dramas but she’s a good twist to the story and how she acted from being good to being mean and back to being good.
The OST of this drama is another factor to appreciate the plot. Even after watching the said series, I’ve been hearing the songs play in my brain; has a real huge impact, isn’t it?
For so long, I haven’t watched a Chinovela / Taiwanese drama, and this series makes me remember all the feeling I had before when I was watching Meteor Garden and other dramas from Chinese & Taiwanese.
For the readers, I recommend to watch this adaptation, though I seriously haven’t seen the anime version and haven’t read the Manga, this is worth watching; it has a love story, it is comical, family tied story and makes all girls wish to fall in love over and over again.
PS: If George Hu isn’t a Taiwanese, I will gladly ship for this couple. 🙂
So in two days, we’ll be leaving our home for 13 years and since this house is already sold; Packing my things and stuffs in my luggage isn’t easy! Though we recently had a bazaar of our belongings here in our subdivision, I find my clothes and shoes still too many to fit in a single bag.
If only I will be having a vacation in Korea, I will enjoy doing these stuffs but we’re not! It is a lifetime residency waiting for us.
If Park Shin Hye‘s recent dramas will be aired on ABS-CBN just like Heartstrings & Hayate The Combat Butler(/via kapamilyanovelas.multiply.com); Her leading man in He’s Beautiful, Jang Geun Suk is also another solid Kapamilya! After “Marry Me, Marry“, his new show that will be aired early 2012 in Korea, Love Rain was bought by ABS-CBN to air in Philippines. Along with the Asia Prince is the Princess of the SNSD, Yoona.
From the same source, here’s the picture teaser of LOVE RAIN for ABS-CBN!
I was on my way home with a friend; Underground floor of Grand Central in Monumento when my friend told me that there’s a Korean convenience store there. Yeah! It is a lot like 7-11, where everything are like ready to eat goods except the part where they are frying/steaming dumplings and serving a korean orange juice, just like what I’m seeing in Korean dramas. Of course, I did grab the chance to eat there. And because I’m craving for some Pesto, I bought a Rameon Bokki which is best served if there was a Tokbokki but due to circumstances they lack supply. But swear it tastes very spicy and sweet. 🙂
I also bought a pack of dumpling for only a hundred seventy pesos, and my dear younger brother who hates Korean foods liked it! Little sour inside best served when there’s soy sauce with calamansi & chili powder.
Along with that here are the pictures of what my friend and I ate:
It is no secret especially here in my blog site that ABS-CBN will air Lee Min Ho‘s City Hunter soon. READ HERE! Other dramas/series from Lee Min Ho were aired in the said network like Boys Over Flowers and Personal Taste/Perfect Match.
And now as Lee Min ho craze all over Asia continues, Filipinos will be able to see the one of a kind epic-action-romance-drama, CITY HUNTER.

Can’t watch this series in a Tagalog-dubbed voice! 🙂
Personally speaking, I’m having an instinct that this drama will be replacing ‘Nasaan Ka, Elisa?’ But that was just my theory. Let’s all wait for ABS-CBN.
I’ve seen Skins in Youtube when I was searching a video for my Biology homework and that time it made me have a pretty little research about the series. It was all a research until a good friend, downloaded it and gave me a copy. Maybe she passed by through it in Youtube, I think? So that how it all started! I must admit, since the one I saw in Youtube was Effy’s episode I jumped to Season 3 and 4, without watching 1 & 2 despite of my friends’ advice that season 1 & 2 were a blast and really a great generation. I decided to make it a prequel, after watching the second generation.
Just like in the picture, I was quick to like Freddie; he is tall, dark and handsome, perfect guy to like and has that sense of maturity. Unlike Cook who at first I thought was just a piece of a shit cast, making trouble for the whole gang which included Effy, Panda, Naomi, Katie, Emily & JJ.
The 3 musketeers: Freddie McLair (Luke Pasqualino), James Cook (Jack O’Connell) and JJ Jones (Ollie Barbieri) have fallen inlove with Effy Stonem (Kaya Scodelario), because naughty Effy made a game to the musketeers causing them to be attracted to her. All I thought was James Cook just loves sex and pleasure with Effy but it turned out to be he is already serious with his feelings towards her while Effy is just evading her feelings to Freddie causing a rift between the musketeers. With these scenes and as the plots are twisting, I can feel that my attraction for Freddie was disappearing and Cook have stolen my heart. Cook was like a bad boy, but on the later episode you’ll be seeing his heart and sincerity.
Other members of the gang included lesbian love affair for Emily & Naomi while Season 3 has become more in tensed when Emily’s twin, Katie had a relationship with Freddie when Effy had decided to break up with Cook to tell her feelings
Kaya (Effy) & Jack (Cook) were in a relationship when they were doing those scenes, making them beg the producers and the director so that their character could end up together. I think you can see that in the last scene in episode 8 and at the beginning of the episode 10. but too bad Kaya’s character, Effy really loves Freddie.
The Fourth season, started with a bummer feeling when a girl committed suicide and the gang became a suspect, when the truth is Naomi had a relationship with the girl and becoming jealous to Emily has caused her to kill herself.
My favorite Cook, I thought was about to have a relationship with Naomi when they were acting like close and sweet friends but it was just a ‘guess’ because all they had was just a friendship. James Cook really loves Effy and so he gave up on her and Freddie and Effy became a couple.
Here comes the puzzle from the first generation (Seasons 1 & 2) when Effy started to be like a psycho because of what happened with his brother Tony who was really indicated that was bumped by a bus. Effy consulted a psychiatrist who is actually a lunatic who ended up killing Freddie in Effy’s episode. Cook in the last episode looked for Freddie with demand from Freddie’s sister, Karen leaving the ending for us to imagine.
So I made the First Generation a prequel, eh? With Tony Stonem (Nicholas Hoult) being the biggest star here, episode 1 started introducing the different members of their gang in a way that Tony is calling each of them. I must say, that Tony had my heart from the very first scene he opened his eyes and with his manipulative, smart attitude. He has a bestfriend named Sid (Bailey) who loves his girfriend Michelle (Pearson), that’s no secret to Tony, he even organized a scheme for his bestfriend and girlfriend causing Sid’s admirer Cassie (Murray) to commit suicide. Jolly, Chris is engage in a relationship with his Psychology professor in the first season, while Jalonda, Michelle’s bestfriend loves music. Maxxie being gay and Tony being adventurous created a conflict in the Michelle-Tony lovestory; Tony asking for forgiveness was hit by a bus making the ending hanging.
Second season rotates with Tony being mentally challenged, forgetting all his memories. This made Michelle & Sid have a relationship despite the fact that the one they truly love is Tony & Cassie respectively. New couple blossoms in the second season, new character who happened to be a stalker of the hot Maxxie. In the end, 1 died, 1 had an abortion, 1 followed his heart to NY and Tony & Michelle story just like the other character made us predict our own ending.
1st Generation happens to be more of a little conservative. less drugs & sex generation, if you’ll compare it to the second generation where there is always an influence of drugs & Cook was like a sex whore fucking almost all the girl casts.
I’ll be watching Skins season 5 soon, I’m just in the phase of moving on with my Tony Stonem craze. 🙂 I can honestly say, that SKINS series is my first ever non-Korean addiction & Jack O’ Connel together with Nicholas Hoult are my first non-Korean obsession.
Skins, is a lot far from any twee-tums, cute Korean dramas I used to watch. This opened my mind to the world of vices and teenage life problems I am not seeing to Asian dramas. This is a series, I will always remember.
