The year refers to the year which I finished the drama in. Some dramas don’t have dates as I don’t remember when I watched them. >.<
Either I have a bad memory or 2015 was a good drama year.


I actually haven’t watched Oh! My Lady in a really long time, but it’s #kdramawomensweek and I love Yoon Gae Hwa so much, so I’m gonna try to explain why:

She’s super persistent; she rarely lets people completely defeat her. She talks her way into jobs, offices and theatre productions, and while she doesn’t always get her way, she never gives up willingly. She’s really resilient and it makes her fun to root for.

She does the best for her daughter, even when it’s the last thing she wants. Her ex-husband is such a total arsehole, and you spend half your time wishing she would just deck him, but she stays civil in the face of his utter douchebaggery because she doesn’t want her daughter to be exposed to their fighting.

Similarly, she takes care of Min Woo’s daughter so naturally, and tries hard to help her recover from her own parental distress. You get the feeling throughout that Gae Hwa has had to deal with too many domestic fights and arguments, and her recovery from that allows her to really empathise with others. 

There is much more to her than the fact that she’s a mother, but it’s a huge part of her character and honestly it’s so positive to see a really great, capable, working mother as a leading character, when often the “mother” role is taken up by the ~evil~ head of the chaebol. She doesn’t just mother the children; she looks after pretty much every character in the show at some point. There’s something about her character that feels really comforting even as a viewer - I think Chae Rim did a really good job portraying her, making her seem so warm and relateable in a way that a lot of female leads aren’t.

What else? I dunno I just like that she’s a real pain in the butt to everybody so that she can take care of her family. I wanna give her a hug.


A girl like you should not be in the palace. A girl like you could easily die.

rachelrambunctious  asked:

I haven't been keeping up with suju since 2010 when I graduated school, omg help?

I am trying to very logically sum up 7 years and I’ll admit, I totally cheated on some parts. And I won’t list every solo activity, that would take days to write.

2010: I knew of SuJu. I just didn’t know them. Siwon was in a Kdrama called “Oh! My Lady” so when I researched him, Super Junior came out. And I was like ???? they’re all handsome??? halp???

2011: A magical year. All the boys personalities start shining, they’re more confident and they’re grown men, literally look at siwons abs bruh. The album: Mr. Simple sells a shitload. Best songs for me? Opera and Superman. SKIP BEAT! DONGHAE HELLUUUUR MAY I SAY MORE. HIS OUTFITS GORGEOUS, HAIR TO DYE (yes i spelt it like that on purpose) FOR. FLAWLESS. (i am biased) SUPER JUNIOR M: TAIWANMEI. high five eunhae in the back! (10 points to slytherin if you can spot it in the video! and by slytherin, I mean me bcuz i’m slytherin)

2011- continued: EunHae duo exists. Awesome singles. Seriously. These two are like milk and cookies. Eunhyuk is smooth like milk and Donghae is so cute and heartwarming like chocolate chip cookies.

2012: A difficult year leading into 2013. Kangin returns (he left in the first place because of the scandals surrounding him) and his voice is widely missed truly it made some of the songs for me. But Heechul and Leeteuk go for military service. Amazing album, gorgeous posters (flower boys) I legit cried over the poster in HS. Endless EunHae marriage comments. It was beautiful. also panda and hedehog, awkward kisses on hae’s part (like srsly bro u ever kiss before?? letz not forget them hickiessss. I mean that happens in 2013 but srsly…srsly) Listen to “Spy” for fingers and suits. Listen to “Sexy, Free and Single” to feel awesome about yourself. Listen to “Gulliver” cause Eunhyuk wrote it by hisself. Listen to “From U” which is “For ELF” and the Eunhae action we got in the live show oh yeah hae chest, KRY vocals ON POINT.

End of 2012: Bad. Very Bad. Big scandal of IU and Eunhyuk. It was terrible like legitimately terrible. It almost caused Eunhyuk to quit everything. Everyone turned on him, even some so-called fans. He was so depressed and even Donghae suspiciously posted lyrics to a song implying someone being deceitful. It was odd and I believe he deleted it. Eunhyuk went low-key for months. It was that bad.

2013: Hero. Its a Japanese song, but done very wonderfully. It’s really cute. Blue world is about ELF again, but the video is a little too blue. EunHae again: Listen to “Still You” and sob at that elevator scene where they’re supposed to pretend to be in the elevator at different times but instead gaze into each others eyes. great acting 100%. SUPER JUNIOR M RETURNS WITH AN ACTUAL ALBUM: Listen to “Breakdown” everyone’s outfits and hair on point. cue donghae exercising too much and ripping his jacket like a pack of skittles. (see if you can spot it in the video!) Yesung enlists and we all sob.

2014: SUPER JUNIOR M AGAIN with a single “SWING” watch the beautiful Henry say “uno dos tres” like a pro, the on-point dances, the office attire, sexy mustachio of siwon making its fierce apperance and most of all suspenders.on.donghae. you will drool, i drooled, we all cried and sobbed. Super Junior: MAMACITA. Heechul and Leeteuk return. The album was pretty much flawless and the best from these lovely boys since Mr. Simple. Listen to “Mamacita” for quirkiness, “Shirt” for Donghae’s songwriting skills, and  “Evanesce” for feels. SUNGMIN IS MARRIED. Everyone flipped out. A ton of ELF felt betrayed and I will admit, I honestly thought it was a shotgun wedding. I didn’t mean to disrespect Sungmin, it legit happened that fast. Again, I apologize to Sungmin for being selfish.

2015: EunHae’s The Beat Goes On. I own this album. I own the poster. I own my feels. Listen to “Growing Pains” for Donghae’s amazing songwriting skills, srsly let my boy write everything and “Sweater and Jeans” for Eunhyuk’s growing vocal skills (vintage sweater and jeans <–thats haes line tho sorry i love him) Sungmin and Shindong enlist. Super Junior’s Devil drops with the return of Yesung, his beautiful voice was greatly missed. MY BOYS WENT TO THE MILITARY. Donghae left on his birthday and I cried like a bitch cause Eunhyuk went two days before him so they could get out together. Siwon enlists a month after in November.

2016: Yesung drops a single “Here I am” and Ryeowook drops an album “Little Prince”. Ryeowook enlists.

2017: EunHae will return July 12th and July 14th, respectively. And Siwon will return August 18th. Kyuhyun decides to enlist so everyone will pretty much fully unite by 2019.

This took me approximately 3 hours to respond to. I tried to sum up everything in short paragraphs! HOPE THIS HELPS~~ XOXO- AyaniELF
