I found this deeply moving and powerful!

K-Drama Ramblings

My evil readers recommended I try out Sassy Girl for size! Sadly, I believe it’s no longer available stateside as I couldn’t find it anywhere so I ended up buying a rather shady copy of it from an Asian video store in Queens. I really hate buying versions like this because the subtitles are awful. I normally wait and buy the English Version of K-Dramas but since Sassy Girl is so new an English DVD Set is unavailable. I believe the official release was available from YesAsia upon it’s release in October or November but it’s since sold out and it takes ages to get back in stock! Impatient as I am I wanted it now thus I ended up with this set!

So I got it!

Yay!

I just finished Coffee Prince and I’m happy to say it was rather awesome! As I was telling a reader in comments Coffee Prince isn’t your standard K-Drama! All the normal ho-hom elements are definately in Coffee Prince. Example: Girl meets Boy. Boy is rich, Girl is Poor. Girl and Boy fall in love. Boy treats Girl kinda harshly. Boy’s family strongly disapproves Girl’s background. Yada yada yada etc..etc…typical Korean Soap! However, even though Coffee Prince follows the same old story plot as every other K-Drama I’ve seen it does have redeeming qualities that sets itself apart from your standard drama! The twist of the main character pretending to be a boy is one thing that makes the drama really different and interesting! Plenty of comic relief from a great supporting cast helps relieve the tension in the story! Quite a few sexy, romantic moments really add a nice touch of sweetness to 17 hours you’re wasting on this! The beginning, the middle and the ending is very fulfilling thus when it’s over you’re actually feeling like you’ve lost some new found friends instead of wanting to bawl your eyes out that you wasted time on a soap that killed off one of the main characters!

Anyway! That’s my little mini wrap up and review of Coffee Prince icon smile

YAY my copy of Coffee Prince’s Soundtrack! Tis awesome you need it!

I’m now looking forward to watching Sassy Girl after all the rave reviews! I just ordered Witch Yoo Hee, SOS, Sweet Relationship, Foxy Lady and Heavenly Forest…so I guess this means my Resolution to NOT buy K-Dramas until I watch what I already have has gone out the window? Sigh. Oh well! I don’t have enough hours in the day to watch all these but it’s sure fun trying to watch at least an hour a night and failing miserably!

What are you watching right now?

Because I Love Mandy…..

I was tagged a few week’s ago to spill my purse contents out for the blogging world to see by Grayburn! You’d think I’d have gotten on it by now!

Sorry but this isn’t a post about what’s in the Muse’s bag but it is a post about what’s in Mandy’s bag!

You can find similar posts on a few other blogs that are participating in the tag game! I’ll be doing my post shortly but I highly suggest running over to peek at Mandy’s bag spillage. Click!

I’ve singled out Mandy’s particular post because her her third to last post had me rolling around laughing so hard that my tea went down the wrong way and ended up coming out my nose!

Do read the comments for further proof that maybe Mandy isn’t quite all there!

Hang Tough!

Cosmetics will return shortly but now a word from our sponsor…….

Wow. That’s really the only word that comes to mind when I heard that New Kids on the Block are regrouping and rejoining the pop civilization as we know it. Wow.

This both scares and embarrasses me.

Would you look at Joey’s hat? The height of fashion circa the 90’s!

This basically means I have to embarrass myself by admitting that I actually loved this group when I was…11…12….13? It’s so long ago I can’t even recall my age how very sad! If you tell anyone about this I’ll deny it in aces!

Prior to discovering what real girly men are made of in Japan I was subjected to the girlish delights of New Kids on the Block (Hey, this isn’t Japan and we have poor imitation girly men here in the states! I just live here don’t blame me!)!

Now where as the Japanese produce idols that are seriously drool worthy we here in the US are subjected to such groups as the long forgotten Jordan, Joey, Danny, Mo, Larry and Curly (I forgot the rest of the names so I just added in the bit about Mo, Larry, and Curly).

Seriously I really did forget their names oh wait one just came to me! Donny! What about Jordan’s brother what’s his name? We can just go around calling him Mo for the remainder of this post!

I remember at first Jordan was the one I cried over (and hyperventilated and fantasized over) and later on I realized that a majority of the female population was actually crying over Joey so I quickly reverted to crying and screaming over Joey since everyone else was doing it and I didn’t want to be the outsider!

I think I was a late bloomer as everyone else was way into our friendly boy band before I was and I remember at the time my best friends Ellen and Kelly having their concert on VHS (VHS is probably before your time kids so go and google it) and it would be some sort of Friday ritual to sit down and watch it. Hell, I can even remember Ellen’s four year old sister dancing around to “Hanging Tough”….ah memories!

So what’s the point of this fine post?

No point! I’m just enjoying taking a trip down memory lane! Actually what I’m enjoying even more is the fact that the potential for funny is definately in this comeback! I need to laugh so bring it on New Kids! I welcome your come back with open arms! I can’t wait to see five grown men regroup and reform a boy band from 100 years ago! This should be awesome!

Hmmm…do you think Mark Wahlberg might consider making a comeback with the Funky Punch and releasing a new CD?

Maybe not. He’s kinda sorta an actor now I think? Only in American can you go from being Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to Mark Wahlberg, Oscar and Emmy Nominated Actor!

Prior to heading home I leave you with this gem from youTube:

“Donny’s D on the backup drug free so put the crack up”!

What the hell does that even mean…..I think I’ll e-mail Mark before leaving work and ask him about the lyrics!
