THE BEST KOREAN DRAMA OF ALL TIME?

I deliberately didn’t write more about the plot of Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo because I’m just going to assume that everyone who reads this is going to watch this drama anyway. Yes, EVERYONE.

Now, I think I’m really hard to please when it comes to dramas so trust me when I tell you that this drama was probably the best one I’ve seen yet. Yeah, even better than Age of Youth and Reply 1997.

I love light-hearted and happy dramas with a well done romance and comedy storyline. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo fulfilled all these criterias. The actors were amazing and I fell in love with Jung Joon Hyung. What a man. Sigh.

Everytime he said or did something cute to Bok Joo I freaked out and squealed like a pathetic fangirl. So yeah, there is that.

What I also loved about Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo was the well rounded ending. I even cried, not because it was sad, but because I actually loved it so much.

Definitely a must-see drama!

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!
