Meet -Memory Moon

Memory Moon Vaal Meet our new puppy.  In this picture she is 6 weeks old. She is a Landseer Newfoundland.                   Aren’t I cute? Strange name?  How did we come up with it? My husband makes his living with computers.  Every pet he wants has to have something to do with computers in their name.  His bird was Data and our last dog, and Italian Greyhound, was named Webblee after the Web. Memory was the prettiest thing I could come up with for a girl dog and still be within his desires. Moon -this is me.  She is named after two of my favorite Korean actors: Moon Chae Won and Moon Joo Won. Labor Day weekend we drive north to pick her up.  I can’t wait.  Our last Newfoundland we adopted as a two year old.  Sir Manchester (Manny) was not the prettiest dog when we picked him up.  He was dirty and depressed.  We put blankets down in the back of the car and brought him …

Foreign Drama -Doctor Crush

Doctor Crush 20 episodes 2016 After Heirs then Pinocchio, I think I expected to much from Park Shin Hye.  Of course she was terrific -but she had no chemistry with Kim Rae Won. Kim Rae Won was adorable, cute, handsome and sweet.  His chemistry was sweet and endearing!  Yet, the drama lacked the power, the fire, the passion she shared with Lee Min Ho and Lee Jung Suk.  I don’t know why, it just wasn’t there. You may remember Rae Won from Gangnam Blues.  He also has two other new dramas this year: The Prison and RV: Resurrected Victims. Now, I understand there was so much more to this drama then just two people falling in love.  This drama is about life, death, revenge and forgiveness.  In all of these areas -this drama rocked.  Park Shin Hye and Kim Rae Won both delivered a powerful performance, along with an amazing cast. I can’t talk about this drama without mentioning the wonderful performance of a real cutie: Lee Sang Yoeb.  This actor had such a tiny …

Foreign Music: Ji Hyun Woo

  JI HYUN WOO                 I don’t know how many of you know much about Ji Hyun Woo, but I wanted to show you all that he isn’t just a super talented actor and kisser.  This man is so much more. Born November  1984 and is 188 centimeters tall which is basically  6’2″. If you decide to only watch one of these videos watch the first one and see him playing Love Story on an electric guitar.  It is amazing. This video is the English song, Creep by Pearl Jam, sung by Hyun Woo.  It isn’t the full song unfortunately. iframe width=”420″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/9iMAsiZW-gg?rel=0&amp;controls=0&amp;showinfo=0&#8243; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe> This last song is Yellow by Coldplay, sung by Hyun Woo. This scene from Queen In-hyun’s Man,  is to show his wonderful kissing talent.  The song is You Are so Beautiful by Xia, is not part of the drama.  

Foreign Drama: Wanted

Wanted 16 episodes 2016 If you are looking for a drama with a powerhouse of performers and will blow you away with a storyline both intriguing and packed with action and thought -this is the drama to watch. My only regret -its over.  Ji Hyun Woo is amazing!  Personally, I wish there could have been a romance to develop between him and Kim A Joong, but I will take Hyun Woo anyway I can see him on the screen.  So, I can’t report any amazing kiss scenes by Hyun Woo -I know… it is disappointing. So many quality actors in this drama.  I never got tired of who was on the screen.  There are to many for me to go into detail, or saying anything new about I have mentioned in other reviews. Uhm Tae Woong Park Hae Joon Lee Moon Sik Park Hyo Joo Jun Hyo Seong Shin Ja Ha Kim Byung ok Lee Seung Joon Park Min Soo Bae Joo Ram Most of these names you’ve watched over and over in different dramas …

Foreign Drama: You’re My Pet

You Are My Pet 110 Minutes 2011 Oh I love Jung Guen Suk but this movie was just about awful.  Guen Suk doesn’t even begin to show his charisma until nearly the end and then there are only moments that he shines.  A couple of the pictures of him in the semi-dark are amazing! First of all, a man being a woman’s pet is stupid.  What makes it even worse is that he acts like a dog.  I love my pets but the last thing I want is my husband to act like one.  Where is the sexiness in that? I understand the storyline.  This woman can’t trust other enough to let them in so the best way to get to her is to come in the back door, so you are a part of her life without her suspecting it. First, what women would actually treat a man as a pet, forgetting he is a man?  Okay, maybe there are some people out there whom are into this type of foreplay -you may love …

Foreign Drama: Hwayi: A Monster Boy

Hwayi: A  Monster Boy 125 Minutes 2013 Yeo Jin Goo (Orange Marmalade; Potato Star 2013; I Miss You; Tree With Deep Roots; Moon Embracing the Sun; Giant) breaks the heart of every mother in this drama.  When we birth a child we have dreams of their happiness and success in a world where they are floating on a cloud of wonderment. Now, this never happens.  At least I’ve never met anyone so blessed.  Even children of wealthy families have strife and conflict, and many poor children are truly happy. So what made this movie so awful?  Not only is this child kidnapped but he is turned into a killing machine.  This would be a true nightmare for me -knowing my child was not only kidnapped but their lives had been turned into a living hell. Hwayi is around 2 or 3 when he is taken by a gang of 6 men.  These men are evil!  The leader, portrayed by Kim Yun Soek, (a man who makes more movies then dramas) is not only the primary father to this boy he …
