Foreign Drama -My Amazing Boyfriend

My Amazing Boyfriend 28 episodes 2016 Drama Fever When I first saw the male lead Kim Tae Hwan, I thought -he doesn’t look  Chinese.  His eyes are too dark and his hair is all wrong.  Since it is a Chinese drama I just assumed I didn’t know what I was talking about.  Then again, I was right -he is Korean, and this drama is his debut.  Before this, he was a model. I also thought he must be around 6’7″ cause he towers over the lead female, Wu Qian.  But, upon further investigation he is 6’2″. So, what did I think of him?  First of all, this drama is the Chinese adaptation or version, of Korea’s My Love From Another Star.  This fact is obvious from nearly the moment you turn this drama on.  The down side to this -Kim Soo Hyun is such a dedicated and perfect actor how could someone making their debut come even close?  He can’t.  That simple. Second, he isn’t Kim Soo Hyun -so why try to remake perfection?! Okay, here …

Friday Travel – vol 16

Originally posted on Dutch goes the Photo!:
Today, I thought I’d share a couple of travel photos from a trip to Nova Scotia about 10 years ago.  In particular, there’s a great little town called Peggy’s Cove, just a little south of Halifax that I want to share with you. Lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, N.S. The classic red-and-white lighthouse is still operated by the Canadian Coast Guard, and is situated on an extensive granite outcrop at Peggy’s Point, immediately south of the village and its cove. This lighthouse is one of the most-photographed structures in Atlantic Canada and one of the most recognizable lighthouses in the world. Visitors may explore the granite outcrop on Peggy’s Point around the lighthouse; despite numerous signs warning of unpredictable surf (including one on a bronze plaque on the lighthouse itself), several visitors each year are swept off the rocks by waves, sometimes drowning. The first lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove was built in 1868 and was a wooden house with a beacon on the roof. At sundown the keeper lit a kerosene oil lamp magnified…

Foreign Drama – Descendants of the Sun

Descendants of the Sun 16 episodes Drama Fever (hulu) 2016 Ok, there is no way I can begin talking about this drama with out first mentioning my awesome Onew.  They gave him an easy role because the Onew on screen is pretty much just who he is naturally.  Onew is goofy, shy and pretty quiet.  He can get emotional as well.  Even though he was perfect for the character they gave him, and he did an awesome job -I hope the next drama he does they challenge him.  After seeing how he did in charades at the Chicago Fanmeet I know that there is much more to Onew’s talent then just being himself.  Of course, next time I hope there is a kiss. Song Joong Ki (8 movies including Werewolf Boy & 9 drama’s.  This is his first drama since coming back from military duty) -great actor.  I was worried because there wasn’t a great kiss scene.  Maybe Joong Ki can’t do a kiss scene, and if he doesn’t will the story have as much impact …
