Just started watching this Korean drama. With actress: shin hye sun and actor: Kim myung soo, L
Synopsis: Dan (Kim Myung-soo) is an optimistic, carefree angel who is always getting into trouble. In order to return to heaven he is tasked with a mission to find true love for the talented but emotionally distant ballerina Lee Yeon-seo (Shin Hye-sun), but ends up falling for her himself.
I’m at the fourth episode currently, and i think it’s quite a good show! Interesting, funny and sad at times. I think Shin Hye-sun acts quite well, although very bad tempered and arrogant but also very pitiful. And the guy is quite funny haha.
For now my rating: 9/10
Just completed the whole show, and my rating is 8.9/10 because of the last few episodes – i think it could have been better.
Regarding last few episodes (spoiler):
Like the last few episodes was quite like repetitive already – he wants to sacrifice his life for her and she wants to sacrifice her life for him and we go through several times where either of them almost died… and then after everything he comes back as like a guardian angel, just watching over her, but suddenly for reasons untold, she could see him, and happy ever after?? very randomly. i guess it could have just ended with him as a guardian angel full-stop, or give a reason for this. Or have a happy ending sooner without all that to-and-fro.
Nonetheless, still a show worth watching! Funny and pulls on your heartstrings! & really loved shin hye-sun’s acting!
On the day of the wedding, Feng Xi Er laid on top of the ‘Ghost king‘, eager to take off his wedding robe. He squinted his eyes, flipped over and switched their positions. He held her dishonest hand and said, coldly, “Miss is so eager to get on This Prince? Are you so desperate?” Feng Xi Er was just desperate to prove something, and once again reached out to take off his mask. The Ghost King smiled evilly, grabbed Feng Xi Er’s wrist and began to remove her robe and say: “Since Miss wants it, This Prince shall satisfy you…”

Went to Korea last month (June) so here was what I did! 😀
Jeju (5days)-> Busan (4days) -> Seoul (3days)
Jeju Day 1:
Stayed: Jeju Resort (Airbnb)
Evening: walked at the beach
Dinner: seafood place nearby. The Abalone porridge was quite nice (although I didn’t find any Abalone…?) and then seafood hotpot. The ajummas were super friendly and cute which was nice c:
Climbed hallasan – SO exhausting (>5h total). But so worth it cos the view was superb. Luckily I saw insta before going, that ppl packed food like gimbap so we also did and ate there around lunch time. Met a friendly ajussi while climbing and chatted a bit.
Osulloc tea museum – innisfree shop was unfortunately closed.. Bought the set to eat there – cake & tea & bought some tea back as souvenirs.
Dinner: Chicken and beer at jeju town
GD Monsant cafe – Pretty cafe with super nice view of the sea. Took many pictures there. But the food (dessert, cakes) was so-so and I tried the royal milk tea, which was labelled ‘HIT’, – not nice..
Lunch: ate at a ramen seafood shop nearby. Walked: at the nearby small gifts shops as well
Shinhwa Theme park (20+sgd from KKday) – super empty lel. Like the rides had no queue and was mostly only us at a time. 1 of the roller-coaster was quite fun and I rode it like 3, 4 times. All their rides were the spinning type.
Duty-free shop – walked at the mall near to the theme park
Chill: at Guemneung beach nearby (actually wanted to go to hyeopjae but taxi driver said this one was prettier and it was right beside the hyeopjae so stopped there instead)
Dinner: Dongmun Traditional Market – all the food stalls, like Taiwan night Market. Ate the big corn dog (with cheese and sausage inside yumz), some (lobster?) toast thing. Also had a set of Abalone, prawn. And had meat cubes thing which was good.
Bought soju, beer from e-mart – drinking night with friends
Lunch: Ginseng chicken soup – at a famous place. Tasted very healthy (abittt too bland for my taste) & portion was so big.
Manjanggul cave – was SOO COLD. Cave inside was pretty cool although I still don’t really get the science behind it, all the volcanic lava and stuff. Has the tallest column in the world apparently.
Checked in: at Airbnb right at the bottom of seongsan. And the view around was really nice.
Dinner: Black pork BBQ – recommended by the airbnb owner. SOOO DELICIOUS. Best samgyeopsal (?) EVER. really juicy. And I can almost use the phrase: melt in your mouth, for it. And for all 3 of us, it was only 60,000 won. 10/10 best black pork belly.
Seongsan Sunrise peak – woke up at 4am for sunrise. Had a shock cause the first gate we saw was closed, so we thought we can’t go up. But saw people from a distance so followed them – went up through the ‘exit’ gate. Didn’t feel cold because of the hike (stairs non-stop). Sunrise was AMAZING – literally saw the sun looking like an egg yolk slowly rising up from the sea. (At first thought that it couldn’t be seen, because of clouds or what, cause it was getting quite bright, but nope, patience) was so excited cause probably my first proper sunrise?
Rest: at airbnb for a while
Paik’s Coffee: had a sausage bread and chocolate latte
Udo Island: took the ferry there, and rented an electric bike (was quite scary at the start cause cannot control the speed haha) Lunch: Marinated pork and added on Hallasan fried rice
Women Diver show at hallasan: bought some raw seafood to try
Dinner: Black pork street, the store beside dumbledon. (But yesterday’s black pork near hallasan was definitely nicer)
its a good twist from the usual, she’s domineering and ‘hong yan huo shui’, smart and mischievous, adorable character that is quite likeable, not just the good innocent kinda character, (she is actually good though). & yes not all-powerful or all-knowing, but just smart and witty. and he spoils her (so i do like ML too) but still has his emperor arrogance and dominance. she’s just fulfilling her role as ‘chong fei’ and wants to live well, but in the end it does show that she does love him. it was quite interesting to read, their relationship from start to end. sometimes, funny. only at the last ch did i feel that it was quite sad (cried). Might want to re-read this again when english translations are done. (I read in chinese when the translations were ongoing)
The free-spirited and brutally honest Ye Zhen Zhen was unwillingly chosen as Empress to the playboy Emperor Ji Wu Jiu. Their very first wedding night, she kicked the Emperor down from their bed and he sought out his concubine instead. This completely disastrous start was only the beginning of their eventful life together.
My rating: 9
Special mentions (currently reading & translating):
Just went to the Floating Utopia exhibition yesterday night (Friday). It was free (!! haha main point) and also interesting. Highlighted the history of inflatables and how there was a ‘balloon fever’… saw an interesting use of it in japan many years back (for shelter from rain), and air mail started with balloons in Paris.. and then culminated to space travel. Which was the highlight i suppose the huge moon (until now, i don’t know if it was an inflatable… or a hologram??). It was actually quite crowded here! (don’t know if it’s cause of friday night.. ) and there was some.. performance? Could not see cause i was way at the back – hence, couldn’t take a photo as well of me ‘carrying’ the moon haha (ok i actually did – with my strong fingers haha). Anyway, didn’t see the performance but heard uh electronic music?
just created a blog yey! In a very random mood, nua-ing at home. Anyway, will probably be putting up very random stuff, posts, lists (cause i kinda like to create lists of where i’ve been, what i’ve read or watched), and works..? Soooo… yuuup, if you’re reading, hi there~ heh and.. bye..
