2017, a fresh start?

My old domain used to be unnie.net. When I set up my blog I didn’t realise that since I’m not korean, I shouldn’t be using the word “unnie” as a domain. Also I revealed my true identity and ended up feeling uncomfortable with posting personal thoughs etc. This lead to my blog being inactive and me regretting my decisions.

{ I let all my Affiliates know about the url change – I’m really sorry for the inconvenience. }

I decided to go for redvelvet.cc because lately, I’ve been really getting into the k-pop group Red Velvet. Also, I love the aestetic of this domain and then there’s red velvet cake. Amazing. Originally I wanted to register jellyjoy.net, but apparently that’s a lube brand. So yeah, there’s that.
I thought about going back to my old nickname Ran™, but then I thought that a fresh start includes a new nickname as well. Since the whole concept of this website is inspired by Red Vevlet I thought Joy would be a nice choice. She’s my favorite member and since I wasn’t able to register jellyjoy that would be a nice alternative. 😀

I don’t kow if the Shoutbox works properly. If you are using WordPress, it should be fine. If you are a logged out user and try to leave a message and put in your website, the message won’t send for some reason. If you leave out your website it works though. I don’t know what to do about that 🙁 I hope I find a solution soon.

Other than that there’s nothing new. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

THE BEST KOREAN DRAMA OF 2016 SO FAR!

I am officially adding this drama to my “Favorite Dramas of all Time”-List!
Honestly, at first I wasn’t that interested in the plot and did not expect much but Age of Youth definitely proved my assumtions wrong.

The characters were unique and had a major character development. I loved watching those girls grow and overcome obstacles. Each one had a different story and background. Their friendship was refreshing and heart warming, I enjoyed that the main focus on this drama was not on love but rather their relationship.

You had some family drama but it wasn’t the typical “Oh-no-my-son-wants-to-be-with-a-poor-girl”-type of family drama. The romance was also really well done and I liked how everything ended. I do not want to give too much away but let me just say; WELL DONE!!

I was a bit worried since I know that a lot of korean dramas tend to get really bad towards the ending but luckily Age of Youth was not one of them. I’m sad they only did 12 episodes, I’d rather have 60+ 😀
Oh well, in germany we have this saying:

“YOU SHOULD STOP WHEN IT IS AT ITS BEST.”
