Unfortunately for her, she has some bad friends and they trick her into thinking she has won a vacation. While she’s on vacation, they sell her house to spoiled brat superstar – our male lead.

Rain and Song Hye Kyo were very adorable together, in my memory. *three bear song plays*

Based on the popular webtoon, “Noona Fan Dot Com” by Kim Seng Yeon, this is the romantic story of a woman who dedicates her entire life to a celebrity only to be blindsided by her overbearing, handsome new boss who finds out about her fangirling of a younger pretty boy of the famous boy group called White Ocean. Seong Deok Mi is an art curator for a prestigious art museum during the day and the loyal manager of the pop idol Cha Si An’s fansite at night. She uses her business trips as excuses to catch glimpses of her Cha Si An, treasures her high-powered camera to capture the clearest picture of her prince charming only to photoshop his photos before publication, and goes on the fangirl version of a pilgrimage to holy places Cha Si An’s feet have walked upon. Her new boss, Ryan Gold, a genius artist from America who discontinued painting for mysterious reasons, clashes with Seong Deok Mi the first few times they interact, revealing the sexual tension behind all that “interacting.” Through Cha Si An and a coveted painting by an unknown painter, Ryan Gold and Seong Deok Mi become more connected outside of their professional lives.
Hope everyone had a great new year! My parents decided to spend New Year in California, far, far away from their kids and home. It was really quiet without my mom’s laughter. So I decided to watch a Korean drama…. The Crowned Clown with Yeo Jin Goo playing a crazy King who is paranoid of his enemies and so he finds a clown who looks exactly like himself and places him on the throne. Who would have thought Yeo Jin Goo will one day steals his own thunder. Lol. What a powerhouse actor he is and I sat there marathoning the first half of the series, shocked at the ending of episode 8!
Aww, the remake of Korean series Reply Me 1988 looks adorable! It’s officially known as Our Youth (我们的青春期). And it’s airing today (6/26). Lol. One of the things that stood out from the stills and trailers is the fact that we have equal number of boys and girls. I love it! Sisterhood and bromance! C’mon ladies, we need more dramas that depict the love and sacrifices us girls can make for and with each other too!
Am I dreaming?! I have time for a drama! Columbus day, thank-you! Great characters in that they are not what they appear to be at first. Some people need time to groove into your dance and show you their best side. Patience is a virtue! 😉
Looks good. The Thai Remake of Korean series You Who Came From the Stars has cast Matt Peeranee and Nadech Kugimiya as the leads and they had a costume fitting yesterday and both look amazing, especially Matt Peeranee, she’s feisty and those eyebrows – they slay. Filming is due to begin in October!
