My oWn Taste of Hallu
Recently I'm getting oh so addicted with Korean Drama's, well okay, not just recently, I've been watching ever since the Hallyu in the Philippines started, oh wait a second, does Meteor Garden part of the Hallyu? Anyway, as I was saying I'm getting addicted again with this chinkey eyed beauties, this time Korean Drama's.
I guess the Korean Drama "Personal Preference" or "Personal Taste" brought back my mood to watch drama's from Korea, maybe its because I got hooked with Lee Min Ho, nah, I think its because of the story, its actually a bittersweet romance comedy rolled all in one, a must watch I suggest.
Then again, I got busy with Manga or Japanese comics. I'm not a bum okay, I got some work. Anyway going back to the topic, a few month's back when I can still go home early, this certain network airs "The Moon that Embraces the Sun" also known as "Moon Embracing the Sun" among other names, I love it, period.
Next is "Lie to Me" (달콤한 스캔들 / Sweet Scandal), hay! I really like Yoon Eun Hye
from Coffee Prince, isn't she cute. Then, the recently finished "The Princesses Man", if you have watched "The Moon that Embraces the Sun" and loved it, surely you'll also get hooked with this bittersweet series. That was the first time I have watched something from Moon Chae Won but with Park Shi Hoo's case I've seen him in "Prosecutor Princess".
The last Korean drama I've finished is "The Greatest Love", it started somewhat boring but as the story goes its something you cant stop watching. I love the ending. Next would be, well stand by for it since I'm still contemplating whether to watch "Big" or "Flower Boy Ramyun".
