Inspired: Shouting to You

The Heirs_Poster

“Saying I’m sorry, saying I love you, you can’t hear it anymore. But now I am shouting out to you.” (Lee Hongki-I’m Saying)

I remember when I first heard this song while watching ‘Heirs’…I fell in love with it almost instantly. I also recognized Hongki’s voice, strong as usual.

I thought that the lyrics were a pretty good fit for the song and, though there is a hint of sadness in the lyrics, it is definitely a song that’s hopeful and touching. In fact, I thought that the sadness and the feeling of wanting to overcome that sadness present in the lyrics makes the song even better!

“I’m saying that I only look for you, I’m saying that I love you. I’m saying that I only see you, even when I close my eyes.”

King 2 Hearts

Hi everyone! Note: Spoilers ahead! (But I can’t spoil the ending for anyone…I haven’t even finished it myself…)

So…this is the drama that I’m currently watching. I thought it might be a nice and light drama…I guess it wasn’t as intense as, say, ‘IRIS’, but this definitely kept me on the edge of my seat during a lot of scenes.

The only other dramas I’ve ever seen Seung Gi in are ‘Brilliant Legacy’ and ‘The Greatest Love’ (His cameo appearance was hilarious) and, after seeing this one, it makes me wonder why Seung Gi is always playing the rich bachelor who also happens to be a jerk, as most rich bachelors are in K-Drama land. Or at least not a great person in general. Oh well.

I’ve always loved Ha Ji Won’s characters, though…especially in this drama. A female lead that can save herself when she gets kidnaps? And the male lead, too? That is just awesome.

Sure, there are lots of female leads out there who are great but can’t really do anything when they captured. But then there’s Hang Ah, who threatens to stab herself with sunglasses and starts giving orders to her captors, and then plans a pretty successful escape. And we can’t forget the way she single-handedly took out the guys on the carousel, saving Jae Ha.

Seriously…she’s an incredibly memorable character.

And watching Jae Ha grow up and mature…it was really satisfying. And, though he started out as a jerk, he became so incredibly sweet that I went from wanting someone to punch him in the face to swooning over him.

And then there’s Shi Kyung…an impossibly idealistic guy, even in K-Drama land. It broke my heart seeing all of those ideals being shattered (By his father, nonetheless!), and his death…I don’t know if I can get over that.

The princess, Jae Shin, was another character that I loved. It was great how rebellious she was in the beginning and, after her accident, it was amazing watching her go from someone fragile to someone who was incredibly strong. The moment when she stood on stage and gave her speech…I very literally felt shivers going down my spine just watching it.

I just hope that this drama has a good ending…I hate it when an amazing drama is ruined by a terrible last episode.

Inspired: The Love I Dreamed Of

IHearYourVoice_OST_2_bc

“Why am I like this? Why do I keep thinking of you? I guess the love I dreamed of is you.” (Jung Yup-Why Did You Come Now)

I just recently finished watching ‘I Hear Your Voice’ and basically fell in love not only with the drama and the characters (Especially Soo Ha), I also fell in love with the OST. It fits the drama perfectly and I had a hard time deciding which songs I liked best.

This song was one of my favourites from the OST, and the lyrics were so sweet that I decided to create an ‘Inspired’ post about them.

My absolute favourite song from the OST is an instrumental, though, so there are no lyrics or anything to really post. So I decided to choose this one. It does have my favourite lyrics from the entire OST, though.

I had also noticed that most of my ‘Inspired’ posts were pretty dreary (I guess I just like sad songs, more), so I decided to get something a little more hopeful and cheerful in here.

So here it is!

“Why did you come? Where were you? It seems like it’s a bit late, but we finally meet.”

[4 Days Until Christmas] Countdown to Christmas…Korean Dramas!

Yesterday’s post was about Youtube videos…and today’s is about something that consumes even more of my time in general…Korean dramas.

A special mention for ‘Dream High’…while it isn’t on this list, it is definitely one of my favourites!

Here are my 4 favourites…it was hard to choose!

1) Goong: I became fans of both Yoon Eun Hye and Joo Ji Hoon through this drama. Oh, and we can’t forget Kim Jeong Hoon (He was the cause of one of my worst cases of Second Male Lead Syndrome ever…). A rags to riches sort of Cinderella-esque (But also not really…it’s gard to explain) sort of drama, this is my absolute favourite.

2) You’re Beautiful: There’s no way Shin Hye could’ve passed for a boy in real life (Especially with that singing voice…which her twin brother also apparently has, which I thought was a little weird), but this drama was really good despite that. Kang Shin Woo is and will always be my absolute favourite K-Drama male character ever. And this was probably the only drama I experienced Third Male Lead Syndrome watching…

3) Operation Proposal: The drama that introduced me to the amazing actor that is Yoo Seung Ho. One of the only actors that ever got me bawling with him almost every time. A memorable drama and one that was funny, touching, sad and absolutely wonderful all at the same time.

4) Boys Over Flowers: I know, I know…of course this would be here, right? But it’s a classic…and I really did love it. Second Male Lead Syndrome was also intense during this drama…I loved Rui in the manga, and I loved Ji Hoo in the drama. Plus, he played violin. But really…this is just one of those dramas that pretty much every fan has watched. And that’s still popular. But for a good reason.

Some of you will agree with some of my choices, others won’t…and we’re all entitled to our own opinions.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed today’s post…maybe it’ll give a few of you something to do over the holidays, too!
