Princess Hours (Goong)

The Royal Couple - Crown Prince Lee Shin & Crown Princess Shin Chaekyeong
As I was reading the comments about Princess Hours or also known as The Imperial Househould (Goong), it is by far, one of the most popular dramas of MBC. It was broadcast from January 11 to March 30, 2006 on Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation.

According to TNS Media, Princess Hours was the tenth most popular drama of 2006. Due to the success of the first season, a second season was to be produced. However, it will no longer be produced due to the withdrawal of two main actors.

Witch Yoo Hee

I've seen the Tagalog version of this drama and since I didn't finished it when the series aired here in The Philippines, I did find some ways to finish this and I'm glad  I did. Amazing story and love the casts! ♥


Ma Yoo Hee (Han Ga In) is the executive of an advertising company. She would never be caught dead wearing make-up and only dresses in black. Her hairstyle and glasses are very business like looks, her only enjoyment in life appears to be the times when she's criticising everything and anyone. All of her employees and co-workers fear her and she is constantly talked about when she's not around. Her stern and harsh nature has earned her the nickname 'witch' When it comes to romance she is hopeless. No matter how many blind dates she has, not one has ever led to a second. The reason for this is her negativity and her inability to loosen up and express herself. She is, however, completely oblivious of her faults and cannot comprehend why she is so bad when it comes to love.

The Moon Embracing The Sun

I've been really hooked with this drama now! I'm watching it daily in Tagalog version. What makes this drama very interesting to me is the fact that the king (Kim Soo Hyun) is very cute.And of course, the Korean culture is very pretty interesting alone.

Learning Korean Through KakaoTalk

Hi guys! This blog has been idle for a while. Been too busy lately and most of the time, I'm on my phone; chatting with  friends, Instagram and a lot more.

Lately, I've been hooked with this Korean messaging app; KakaoTalk. It's an app that you can use for free text and call all over the world. That is if your friends and family are using it too. Don't worry, KakaoTalk is free to download.

Since I am trying to learn Korean and Hangul (Korean alphabet), as much as possible I'd like to connect with Korean people too to become my friends. In that way, I can win friends and I can also learn Korean by frequently keeping in touch with them.

Dongsaeng, HELP!!!!
Hahaha. My phone can write/type hangul and I somehow recall some of the characters in the Korean alphabet, but not all. I can read few hangul words too... but not really that good.

So, there's this one time... I made friends with a Korean girl through Kik (another messaging app) and she greeted me in Korean at first because she thought I am a Korean.. and since I got confused of what she has sent me, I ask another friend in KakaoTalk to help me translate it. hahaha. Silly of me!

But, I find it really cool. Technology is a really great help for us to learn anything we want to learn nowadays.

Thank you dongsaeng for helping me out! :) comments
