REVIEW

Honestly, I’m a fan of Jonaxx on wattpaad and that is not the first story that I’ve read from her.

I am very doubtful whether I will read it or not. But I ended up reading it.

Curiosity will really kill the cat!

It’s been a long time since I’ve decided to type again and update my blog. And the first thing that comes into my mind is to share how my fangirl life is doing. And I’ve been busy with so much Korean dramas going on. So I thought you would like to know what I’ve watched and preferred you to watch (plus the summary) So here it is:

Confessions of a K-drama Addict //01

Because I can’t held it inside of me without sharing it with anyone…

That’s one big reason why I created this. I’m a person who wanted to share every wonderful things I’ve experienced in my life. I consider me being a fan of Korean drama a big thing in my life. Then I realized, why I barely share these kind of feels to my friends.

I’ve been keeping all of these, inside me for a long time now. Then it hit me. Why didn’t I share it to my beloved blog? But maybe I did. I somewhat did when I made some drama reviews. But maybe it wasn’t enough for me.

Well then here it is! My very own confession of a K-drama addict!

To be honest, I didn’t like korean dramas before.  My cousin has been very deeply in love with k-pop and dramas since then and I knew it. She collected dramas and k-pop songs and we had lots and lots of it.

Then one time, on my facebook news feed, all posts were about Descendants of the sun. I thought about it was a song. I didn’t have any idea back then that I will be loving this k-drama.

A few days later, I opened my snapchat account and saw some posts of my friend. Then one of my snapchat friend happens to be my cousin’s friend which is also a k-drama and k-pop lover. There was a picture then the caption was “Crying over descendants of the sun”

The name was very familiar. Then I caught my cousin,s talking about it. Then me being an epal cousin, asked them if I could borrow or watch it. Then they let me borrow the tablet.

Then I was shocked, it was in korean language and the thought that it’s about the love between a doctor and a soldier, was very weird but amazing at the same time. Weird because I’ve never seen a soldier in a drama mostly I see them in action movies.

And the story doesn’t just run between their love, it’s also how they take part in their own jobs! I was like, “Wow! I wish I would be like that when I grew up!”

It was an inspiring story. It makes me want to pursue medicine. Not because it’s Kang Mo Yeon’s job but I really had that dream in me before I even met her. The drama was a success!

And I want to congratulate my beloved and oh-so- awesome Song-song couple for winning the Grand Award of KBS! It was surely a good starter for the next year. And being a fan, I’m so proud for the both of them! Saranghae!

Rant: Lee Jong Suk with Suzy?!

Hey! You all knew that I love Lee Jong Suk, I’ve seen his famous dramas and he’s a very great actor. A news came that he’s gonna have a drama soon. Very Very Soon.

I was like Yeah! Yeah! May gagawin na naman ako evry evening tapos papagalitan na naman ako kasi nagda-download na naman. But the saddest part is, He’s gonna be paired with Suzy.

Don’t get me wrong, Suzy’s a very enthusiastic person and a famous idol in Korea or probably the whole world but let’s all face it, her acting sucks big time!

I’m not a hater nor a basher of Suzy but that’s the truth. If you are a kdrama fan, you might have known about Uncontrollably Fond which is starred by Kim woo Bin and suzy. The plot of the story was amazing but the actress didn’t seem to put enough justice on it.
