Park Ki-Woong (unfinished)

I made an attempt to draw Park Ki-Woong circa Full House take 2 a few months ago. Truthfully, I am a big Park Ki-Woong fan (I started watching Korean Dramas because I saw him in My Tutor Friend 2) but I couldn’t watch Full House Take 2 because of all the horrible hair.  Still, I thought the glasses were cute, so I gave it a shot.

Review: Epielle Facial Essence Mask

NerdNoona here!

This is something my mom picked up for me at Big Lots. She knows I have an obsession with sheet masks, especially ones from Korea. These are indeed made from Korea, from a company called Epielle. I did a little research and discovered that they are known as a cheap brand but of course cheap does not mean low quality. These masks feel quite good to the touch. The mask itself is not rough at all which is great! They are loaded with moisture which is something I look for in a good mask. I’ve had more expensive masks dry out because they were not loaded with the essence. These masks are not revolutionary. They did not make my skin perfect but they did do their job. My skin felt hydrated and moisturized. The scent is pleasant and very relaxing. These are not going to change your skin greatly but for 2 bucks for 4 masks they are amazing for those nights where you want to wind down and relax. I would recommend them for anyone that wants an inexpensive mask to throw on after a hard day of work or school. Have you ever tried these before? If you have let me know what you think of them!

Until Next Time!

I guess I have to Watch Roommate tomorrow

Hi all! I think if you viewed this blog before you remember I have a special affection bordering on obsession with Song Ga Yeon. She was such an adorable mix of mellow little sister and spunky fighter that I wanted to adopt her immediately. I stopped watching Roommate not because Ga Yeon left, but because the whole structure and cast of the show was rapidly falling apart.

I had developed some interest in seeing the show’s new incarnation “That’s okay, it’s roommate” when I saw who the newer members teaming up with the skeleton crew of the old team would be. I’ve watched a few clips and I’ve really come to like the dynamic between some of the cast. That said, I am VERY wary of watching a show that I feel will screw me over, by either ending early or having sudden unexpected casting changes. (Surplus Princess being cut down to 10 episodes broke my heart, by the way.)

I saw this video this morning, which instantly means I have to watch episode 23 of roommate. Ga Yeon comes to visit, and Jackson, who apparently sees Ga Yeon as his ideal female, is a little…um…shy?

The fact that a member who moved out last season is visiting makes me hate what happened last season a little less. The thing that bothered me the most is that there weren’t on screen goodbyes. The cast who left were just gone. I know they did have blurbs at the very end, but it was too little, too late. Now that the show is illustrating that they all still know each other and get along (real or not, it just works for me narratively) I can enjoy the new episodes.

Looking at past posts

My feelings have really changed about a lot of shows, and sometimes I go and look at posts I wrote and am shocked by what I read there. Like about “We Got Married” apparently I wrote that I thought Jo Kwon and Ga In really had romantic feelings for each other. Me barely three months later is looking at the screen with my eyebrows raised going- “Really? You really think so? Ya sure?”

Having a blog is pretty hilarious, because sometimes I look at past posts and just want to hug my former self. Like when I got all enthusiastic about Trot Lovers, not knowing that right before the end the unrealistic-but-entertaining writing would turn unrealistic-and-insane. Of course, I would have continued to watch it had I known or not, but at least I would have been prepared. At one point I swore off watching currently airing dramas, but that was the most boring 48 hours I’ve ever spent in my life.

Variety and reality wise, I have a new philosophy: I don’t try to pretend I think it’s real, or that it should be real, or that it in any way shows reality. I look at it like I look at the 50s. I was watching Project Runway the other day and thought “There’s no way they actually voted that dress through. The producers must have-” And then I realized I was breaking my rule, so I just relaxed and shrugged it off. And I feel much better for it.

Is there any show you once loved but now hate? Or vice-versa? Y’all, I would love comments about anything, truthfully. I always wonder what people actually think of this blog.
