the first drama i ever watched

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo is one of the best kdrama of all time and it continues to be overlooked as hell. It doesn’t even rank top 20 in Korea despite having one of the most well-written, organically developed plot AND characters for a kdrama. This is the first kdrama I’ve ever seen where they actually show a healthy, supportive relationship between the main leads without using over-exaggerated storylines to drive the romance. Also it’s one of the few Korean dramas that actually talks about mental health issues without downplaying it or use it as a plot device for ratings. I honestly love this drama so much and it deserves so much more love. It’s so fluffy and fun but also serious and relatable when it’s important.

Your first wlw ship (subtext)

My first subtext ship was Rizzles.

JUST LOOK AT THEM.

Detective Jane Rizzoli and Dr. Maura Isles are married and in love.  That’s an indisputable fact.

I was always a sucker for a cop drama and this one came out and it was female led.  Of course I watched it.

But then it hit all my buttons.  Jane is a rough around the edges tomboy who is tough and strong.  She doesn’t take any shit.  She’s the best of the best.  She loves her job (maybe a little too much) and she loves her family.  If you are ever confused about what futch is, it’s Jane Rizzoli.

Maura is a genius, card-holding member of MENSA.  She doesn’t really get subtext and is a stickler for the rules.  She cannot identify a sticky red stain as blood until the test results come in.  She is incredibly empathetic.  She’s an ME to give a voice to the dead.  She’s lonely because she’s better at understanding the dead than the living.

Not only are they my favorite kinds of characters, but they are best friends. They’re not like the het cop shows where they’re forced together as partners. No, they’re friends from the beginning, choosing to stick together.  They’re affectionate with each other, as shown above.  Like even as a show about female friendship, which was their intention, it was incredibly powerful.  Maura ends up being an adoptive part of the Rizzoli clan and it makes me all gooey inside.

This was the first show I ever read fic for.  And honestly, if I could come up with a case of some kind I would write fic for it, too.  I think this was the first fandom I joined on tumblr other than Doctor Who.

I think they missed out on a powerful story here too.  I mean yes, female friendship is severely underrepresented in the media, but this level of slow burn friends to lovers would have been epic.  Like.. Sasha Alexander (the woman who plays Maura) was a hardcore shipper.  She literally said in an interview that unless the writers could give good love interests for them both it was always going to be them.  She’s straight and she ships it.  My mom ships it.  It could’ve been great, but unfortunately TNT is stupid.  

I miss my crime fighting babies and I miss when people included them in things.  Like, it’s great that there’s more wlw content out there now that they get pushed back, but like….. I’m still in love with them….

I’m here to give you a warning. Leave me and the people around me alone. And what if I don’t? If you don’t, I’ll come and find you, no matter where you may be. I’ll end our first encounter with just this warning but if I ever come to see you a second time, you will die.

Reasons you should all watch the first season of Veronica Mars

* This is considered as one of the most perfect piece of entertainment having ever graced the networks.

* It actually has some flaws but who cares this is still phenomenal.

* This is feminist, in a very Buffy/early 2000 way ( yes I’m talking about the first season there ) most of the time in a very clever not-at-all cliché way.

* Veronica is one of the most empowering female character I’ve ever watched on TV. She is so strong, but you will want to wrap her into a blanket and give her a cup of tea because she is still a teenager, fighting alone against the rest of the world.

* An amazing romance, everyone love them, 98% of the fandom ship them and you will do too. This romance tears appart any tentative of love triangle or petty drama because you know damn well that they are the best thing that ever happened to this show.

* The best father/daughter relationship on screen.

* The characters are all A+, deep and flawed and full of secret.

* The Echolls family is more entertaining to watch than the Kardashians, no joke there.

* I said you’ll want to wrap Veronica in blanket ? Then what should I say about Logan ? No joke, at some point you’ll be beggin’ the show to give him a fricking break because this kid needs to breath from time to time.

* The final plot twist will destroy you. It destroys everyone though, so don’t worry about that and enjoy the ride.

* Literally everyone is in this show. From Max Greenfield to Paris Hilton. Hell, Michael Cera is in this show. SUE SYLVESTER IS IN THIS SHOW TOO. Also this dude in Mean Girls. And Blair Waldorf. And Ben from Park and Recs.

Are you surprised to find out who our first actor of the month for the new year is? Well, so am I! Say hello to Yamada Ryosuke!

Phew. I didn’t think Yamada Ryosuke would ever appear in this list for various reasons. But then I began watching his latest drama–Cain and Abel–and was impressed. His acting has taken a mature turn; very unlike his role in Assassination Classroom. I can somehow feel a connection with his character (Takada Yu) in that series; childish yet serious at the same time. He gives me a feeling of liberation whenever he appears on screen. I’m glad he decided to take a more diverse role because it’s clear that he gained a good acting experience from it. I look forward to his next movie–Fullmetal Alchemist. I really hope he gives Ed justice.

What's all the drama about scarlet Johansson speech or whatever?

I didn’t watch her speech but what I’ve gathered is that her speech was typical white fem nonsense. I know that she literally said “Trump I want to support you but first I ask you support me” which alone is like…why would ever say you want to support Trump? And if he supports “her”? Also she supports Israel and woody Allen and takes roles away from poc so I don’t like her anyway

What did he do to deserve that? 

Don’t get me wrong 3 out of 4 characters got a happy ending, but Shin? Shin is trapped in an endless circle of waiting for her, being with her and watching her die, he will never actually move on cause she will reincarnate. 

What if he has to wait hundreds of years next time? why is he the one that gets screwed the most?!

“You have nothing to worry about (Y/N). Listen to me, okay? I love YOU. Soonyi is just an actress who I have to work with. I don’t feel the same way for her as I do for you, and I could never feel like this towards anyone else. Trust me, okay? Nothing could ever change that…so just believe me…” you remembered your sweet boyfriend’s words to you last night as you both sat and watched the first episode of his drama. You couldn’t help but feel intense jealousy whenever they had a cute, loving scene together – nothing more than just holding hands or looking at each other, but it ate you up inside. Jin, of course, sensed your uneasiness as he pulled you into him, coming face to face with you and completely ignoring the television as he gave you his full and undivided attention – showering you with kisses and making you feel a little better; something he was always so good at, no matter the situation.

[TRANS] 170122 Park Bogum Asia Tour Fanmeeting in Taipei: Bogum’s handwritten letter to Taiwanese fans

Hello! I am Park Bogum.
To be able to have the opportunity to see you all again in Taiwan where I held my first ever overseas fanmeeting, it feels very new.
It has been 9 months today since I made the promise to meet again with a more handsome image, has everyone been well since then?
During that time, I did my best (acting as) Lee Young in the drama  <Moonlight Drawn by Clouds>.
During the times that were not easy, when I needed comfort and support, I gained strength by watching the video of Taiwanese fans singing ‘a small fortune/happiness’ together.
It is nice that your warm hearts can be conveyed no matter how many times I watch it.
To me, I think it’s a big fortune that I have people that support me in places where I can’t (physically) see.
Thanks to everyone’s prayers and support I have been able to become a cooler actor, and more handsome person compared to when we first met.
I sincerely thank you for your unchanging prayers and support.
I will continue to work hard in the future in order to become an actor who can make you smile, touch your hearts, and bring you comfort and happiness.

Thank you, for being with me in my youth.
I hope that everyone’s lives will always only be filled with thankful things.
God bless you!

Why I Switched To Korean Skin Care Routine
External image

Hello, dear Tumblr friends! Here’s another entry about the real reason why I chose to switch from using Western skin care to Korean skin care products. I’ve tried several products to get rid of dry skin, impurities, minor blemishes, and as well as to even out my skin tone but none of them seem to work for me until I’ve tried my first ever Korean branded facial wash from 3W Clinic. 

Aside from the fact that I’m being influenced by a lot of Korean dramas I’ve watched from the past year, finally, I made a big move and tbh, I’m really glad I did switch from using Western skin care to Korean skin care products.

Here’s why:

I watched baby’s SHOWROOM and my heart was in pain for the whole thing ‘cause I couldn’t stop smiling and she seriously is one of the most adorable beings I’ve ever seen like I just can’t. She’s just too adorable. And funny. And beautiful. And precious. (Also Rikopi and Piichan as guests AAAAHHHWWW❤)

I also watched the first episode of mamepro. 

Let me say that I kinda like it. 
Kinda a lot. 
For now. 
And that JuriSaku shippers are being so fucking lucky like it’s amazing the amount of stares and looks these two have exchanged in Kyabasuka and I’ve got the funny feeling that this is going to happen again in this new drama with the only difference that now

JURINA IS SO FUCKING HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

LIKE HAVE YOU SEEN HER? HAVE. YOU SEEN. HER?!? THAT COSTUME??? AND THE HAIR?!?? CAN SHE PLEASE NOT?! CAN SHE NOT BE SO HOT?!? AND I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT ME ‘CAUSE WHATEVER MY OSHIMEN IS WATANABE MIYUKI-SAMA AKA A GODDESS SO I CAN KINDA CONTROL MY HORMONES RIGHT HERE (……………..it’s very difficult but I can, I can totally do that) I’M TALKING ABOUT MY BABY. MY SWEET BABY. OKAY?! O K A Y ?!?!? ‘Cause if Sakura is hilarious and talented and beautiful and an artist, then Jurina is… like… Talented, and beautiful and funny and FUCKING. HOT. Like, this is not good. She already pinned the tweet where she talked about the wrestling match she went to see with Jurina… Like… This feels so much like a Deja-vu to me… (lol)

This is not good. Somebody tell her to stop. 
Thanks. 
Bye.

anonymous asked:

what are your favourite kdramas?

I always direct new kdrama fans to web dramas as they are much shorter in length and relatively easier to understand, so I’d always suggest either any idol-based web drama like Exo Next Door or Mimi. 

Then I will forever and always recommend the same kdramas to budding watchers, and I always suggest I Remember You (Hello Monster) as a first drama because it seriously was one of the best things I’ve watched- it had the perfect amount of suspense and romance, and essentially it had comedy which was a must for me.

But, for a list, I would definitely say that my favourite kdramas are:

  1. I Remember You (Hello Monster)
  2. Descendants of the Sun
  3. Sassy Go Go
  4. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo
  5. Goblin is currently one of my favourites, seriously breaking kdrama boundaries right now, it’s so good.

I’ve watched some others too but they don’t exactly fall into my favourites category!

Some of my favorite dramas of 2015

My top 5 dramas from 2015 ^_^ (in order of when it aired)

1.  Pinocchio- Most of the episodes for this drama aired in 2014 but it ended in 2015 so I ended up putting it on this list instead of last years. I love the leads and everything about this drama. I feel like this was the better version of Heirs in the sense it was made up of great cast and crew with a lot of potential and unlike Heirs Pinocchio was a success. 

2. Kill Me Heal Me- This was one of the first dramas to air in 2015 and let me just say dramaland had a great start in 2015 with this master piece. Not only did I love the Oh siblings but Ji Sung did a phenomenal  job of playing 7 different parts. Hands down one of the best dramas with some of the best I’ve ever seen. This drama aired same time as Hyun Bin’s drama with a similar plot line and I first started watching Hyde Jekyll Me because of Hyun Bin but I soon lost interest and tried Kill Me Heal Me. Let me just say I fell in love after the first couple of episodes. 

3. High Society- This was a nice surprise. It was like Marriage not Dating from last year, I don’t think either of the dramas had a big following but I loved watching them both. I wasn’t a big fan of Sung Joo first drama in 2015 (Hyde Jekyll Me) but High Society made up for it ^_^

4.Sassy Go Go- I actually binged watched this drama after it aired. I’ve seen most of EunJi’s dramas and I just love seeing her playing a student. Her character in Sassy Go Go reminded me of Reply 1997, both a must watch. 

5. She was Pretty-  I started the year with Jung-Eum and Seo-Joon and also ended they year with these two. I have to admit the chemistry between these two actors is amazing and its very rare. I wouldn’t mind seeing them in another drama ^_^ Loved the leads as well as the supporting leads. Si-Won also did a great job in his role right before enlisting into the army. 

What made it to your list? ^_^ 

Check out  my list for 2014 

long story short, I’m just going to make whatever makes me feel good with no concerns for quality or for any other purpose, I don’t care that ii is one of the worst things i’ve ever seen at least i’m having fun for now and i’m preoccupied with something

I’ll just shitpost to my heart’s content.

please don’t watch inanimate insanity

Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo Review.

I have waited for this drama to end to make a review of it. 

This is like one of the best dramas I’ve ever watched (And I have seen a lot of them trust me.. ). Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo is a refreshing drama with great actors in it. That is for sure !

*SPOILER ALERT*

I was so not over Moon lovers that when I saw that Nam Joo Hyuk (The freaking 13th prince) and Lee sung Kyung (Literally one of my favorite actresses ) are having an upcommming drama and that it’s a romantic comedy one…and…and…*Breaths heavily* I just couldn’t resist.

BUT, actually when I saw the first episodes, I was not so into it to be exact. I thought it would be just another cute drama with a LOT of aegyo. LITTLE DID I KNOW !

Actor wise : This is no joke…They portrayed the characters perfectly in my opinion (Even tho having a model as an athlete got me like HELLA NO at first, but Lee sung kyung NAILED IT ). Not only the first leads did great, but also second lead roles…I liked them all !! Especially KBJ’s uncle (I was a little bit biased since I loved him in Let’s fight ghost but he didn’t deceive me *Winks* ) 

Originally posted by younqshin

Plot wise : It was really well written. The main couple had a great chemistry and that is not only because they have great acting skills but also thanks to the plot. There is no such thing as solving a problem in 2386423 episodes, they didn’t make the leads self centered and only think about their relationship. This drama showed us that family and friends count too. It was really heart warming <3 There is also an evolution of the characters. All the struggle they faced were realistic even though I would have liked if they clarified more things about joon hyung’s trauma..

OST wise : I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of the OST of this drama but hey…No one cares !! 

The ending : THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL A GOOD ENDING! Thank God after that wave of having sad and unsatisfying endings, we finally got a beautiful, sweet and an amazing one.

It was perfect.
