Wow, you guys totally rocked the OT last week. Color me impressed. Will you top it this week? I wonder…

Queen – “Don’t Stop Me Now.” I’m feeling nostalgic. Also, just watched Shaun of the Dead again, for about the dozenth time. [ Download ]

YY,

My Kang-ah Hot and Waxy figure melted... :-)

I need to order another one. I think Bourbon might need one too!

MJP unnie, I've been saying this since last week:

YY found her white guy on the Shitty Hunter premier episode and ran off with him. Currently they're hiding on the jungle.

bourbon,

You know YY's Hot and Waxy's also play about ten phrases, if I can recall correctly.

Yaaay! Just to say, the new headers ROCK!!!!

And the Hong Sisters' taste in classical/comical (a brand new genre, who would have known?) music ROCKS as well.

Eeeh, I'm right in the middle of my end-of-high-school exams and I'm torn between revisions and May Madness... K-dramas, why so good?

I must say I am overly enjoying BFB and RT these days - it's probably thanks to the lack of coverage these two get compared to others.

It's exactly like what it sounds like, Viola.

I'm making my own dating manual, based on these Kdramas. I call it "How To Seduce Women, The Korean Drama Way". It's gonna be a bestseller, I'm sure :)

0

It's coming along just fine.
I added 'Cute Relationship with Her Nephew', 'Growing Pet Potatoes' and 'Studying Oriental Medicine'.
Three new chapters!

And how have you been doing? You missed OT last week. It was explosive!

That's good! Although the Oriental Medecine one has not made its proof so far... *sigh* Pil-Joo Darling...

What about we add 'Sharing Sweet-and-Sweeter-Snacks Moments' (thank you, Romance Town)? In the Korean Method, guys can be fat and still seduce women! (Ah, I know many that wish it could easily work the other way around...)

Thats what I hear! Hopefully we might break another record this week - I must leave now, Epicure, Descartes, Nieztsche, and the others are calling for me. I might drop by later tonight!

mirabeau,

Oh, that was sooooo CUTE, when they shared snacks again! She was in a voluntary head-lock looking all adorable, how could he resist her?

0

I know MJP, right? I'm SO happy he finally accepted her, no matter if she was Shi-ah or Soon-geum. They are so cute together I might get cavities from watching them!

I just wish Sung Yuri was a better kisser. Their kisses pale in comparison to the Cola kiss, for instance, no matter how breathtaking the last one was *sigh*

0

Yes, sometimes the Kdrama kisses are definitely HOT and sometimes they are definitely NOT!

0

Your Highness, I am saddened... am I truly that forgettable? I did not miss the last OT *melancholy sigh*

0

I still find it necessary to include the 'Studying Oriental Medicine' necessary. We never know...

0

Oh, 'Studying Oriental Medicine' is a worthy chapter... After all, even though we may want Ae Jung to get on D-line, but personally, we all want to snatch Pil-joo out of the computer screen and keep him for myself ourselves! :)

Hey, YRH Ricky! This sounds like cashing-cashing to me. There's a million bucks waiting for the writer who will take on this book project! And you are just talking of one kdrama here! Wow! You can have a full 50 volumes of this book series...just like the Encyclopedia Brittanica, hah! You dont have to go too far...you can get your drama list from those recapped here in DB! ;-)

Viola, you are NOT forgettable!
As a matter of fact, you are irreplaceable!

I'm a bit late to Best Love and just finished ep.4, but instead of watching the next one I started to watch Coffee Prince. When will a kdrama hero ever top Choi Han Gyul??? He is like embedded in my HEART!

I know! So many dramas, so little time. Sleep is entirely overrated.

I was in Koreatown on Wednesday and was made acutely aware of my sleep-deprivation and Drama-obsession when I stood there on the corner getting insanely excited when I heard someone on their phone say, "ottoke."

Yeah, issues. I has 'em.

LOL! This has happened to the best of us, on many an occasion! I remember hearing these two girls speaking Korean once when i was on holiday, this was right after Coffee Prince. After stalkin following them a little bit, i finally mustered up the courage to go up to them and say, "Are you Korean? I looooooveee Coffee Prince!!" After their initial shock wore off, they were quite sweet, and understanding of my Gong Yoo obsession. :)

Well, at least Gong Yoo will see our zeal and maybe try to leave GirlFriday's lair.

LOL... I know exactly how you feel! I went to my first Korean restaurant and the owner/chef always comes to the table to greet the guests.

She greeted a Korean couple next to our table with "aneyoaseo" and they had a short conversation in Korean.
As she came up to our table, my daughter grabbed my hand and said "please mom.. don't embarasse me!... what ever you do.. don't say hello in korean!"

The opposite happened to me!
I was having a meal with my family at this Japanese restaurant and lo and behold, a korean mom and her son were being umm.. 'interviewed' by a waitress. The waitress was going on and on about the dramas she watched and I can't help but feel that I'm a better addict than she is! Please, all she knew was Boys Over Flowers! She never mentioned the recent ones.
So my family was urging me to go and 'correct' the waitress but I was too embarrassed to do it. I left the restaurant with a full tummy but I wasn't 'satisfied'. *sigh*

Ajummabunny... what else bulgogi! It was delish it came with 7 side dishes... several kinds of kimchi, anchovie noodle, anchovies.. ooh and kimchi pancakes.

my daughter got spice seafood noodle! Next time I go back I'm trying that!

Everything was delicious... ohhh and we even used scissors to cut some meat!

hajroutta... there aren't any Korean restaurants where I live either ... I was visiting my daughter.

that is soooo funny....do you guys know that i find myself sometimes bowing when introduced??? good heavens!

Oh, good we're talking about korean food=) I actually want to ask how side dishes work... I know this is going to sound pretty dumb, but here goes: Are side dishes suppose to be eaten like appetizer or just eaten together when the main dish comes? Because I was at a korean restaurant and my softball coach was begging the team not to re-order more side dishes because according to him that will annoy the waiters since side dishes aren't suppose to be treated like appetizers, yet whenever I re-order (yeah for free food!!! I know, I know, I'm shameless) the waiter always seems so pleased. So are side dishes just a one-time order thing to be eaten as literally a side dish or as an appetizer?

0

I eat them together with the main dish. The side dishes (Banchan) compliments the dishes by adding variety and further flavors to the meal. Think of it like adding the vegetables to your Sunday roast, Without them there is something missing, but when added it is perfect. Kimchi's the most common and the most varied. I also like spiced cucumber, bean sprouts, and radish.

I randomly put "Ottoke?" on a piece of paper having to do with a guy at my job in a fit of k-drama-addiction outing itself. It's been there for months. This week our receptionist took the day to go to her gran's graduation and I had to cover for 2 hours for the first time ever. So of course I left my stuff in my office miiiiiiles away from her desk. I asked one of the guys to get it for me, and what does he see? His paperwork with "Ottoke?" stuck on top! Which required explanation of course....

Oh k-drama obsession...what have you done to me?

At 153cm, I always managed to find men over 180 cm - the tallest over 200 cm. As I've realized, although I enjoy the uber romantic bent back/ lift of the tall man kiss-it makes my neck so tired. Yet for yeeeeeeeaaaaarrs I totally dug the easy access to the heartbeat/ chest snuggle.

I dated and married a man that was 183 cm and my chin reached his shoulder. I had to hunch down for him to nestle my shoulder in his arm pit.
