First day of the water snake year, Happy Lunar Year all!
This year’s comparatively quiet compared to the previous, my place. Last year we had fireworks and crackers blasting thru the night for hours and hours until the dragon arrived. This year? Drastically less, uneventful and un-happening. Last year we stayed at our grandma’s house until the night burned out, this year, everyone left for home 2 hours earlier, stating reasons of all sorts. I’m not sure why, but overall, the mood is pretty lull and vapid compared to the previous years. Lions and dragons (performances) don’t roam around neighborhoods anymore unless invited for special performances (eg. open houses), we get A LOT of Chinese new year songs on the radio and all, but for some reason they don’t excite or seem to be that inviting or invoking of the festive spirit. The night markets and bazaars are on but sources tell me business aren’t good, at all, probably because of the ridiculous price hikes and all hmmmm. I visited a friend’s house today, and reception didn’t seem as good or vibrant as before. Something’s obviously different, amiss this time around. Maybe I’m older, such things do not excite me anymore, or maybe, I’ve just grown out of the tradition? I really hope it’s just a passing feeling, and not me being all passive all of a sudden. It is the new year after all, I should be looking forward to more good things, blessings and abundances. 😉
Okay, I better shuddup. Not meaning to rain on the festive parade hehe TBH. The day isn’t as bad as you think, I’ve got red packets, well wishes, good sumptuous food to last the whole lunar new year, I shouldn’t be complaining. And it’s only the 1st day! 14 days to go! Plus I’ve got a whole lot of cute discovered this very auspicious day to squee swoon over I cannot be happier :
Full interview clip here as I have no idea how to embed a youku link.
Shin Ha Kyun! Anything Shin Ha Kyun makes me happy, doesn’t matter if he’s all serious, not saying anything relevant, doesn’t matter if he’s all shy and embarrassed most of the time during interviews, he’s just that capable of making me smile SMILE SMILE whatever he does. He’s such a low profile person fans literally crave and yearn to just have something, anything of him to savour until his next appearance. His filming of The Running Man was carried out without big buzz or hype , and I bet nobody knows that he has already confirmed his new drama, and has already started filming! All this I didn’t get from any news sources (because there aren’t any!), I only found out through a co-star’s twitter that things are already set in stone and they’ve already begun script reading.
So imagine my excitement when I found this interview, with Shin Ha Kyun TALKING A LOT, smiling a lot, and making people laugh! He always makes people laugh with his weird interview answers, but talking the way he did in the interview, very incredibly RARE! I’ve repeatedly watched the interview, still doing it, altho I only get about 50% I’m still a happy fangirl watching. He’s got the loveliest and most genuine teddy bear smile I’ve seen I can just stare all day. <3333
Ahhh in HEAVEN!
Other cute news:
That Winter, The Wind Blows secondary cast Kim Bum and Jung Eun Ji so omg AWKWARD CUTE I cannot even!
Drama and acting aside, can you NOT fall in love with them being so awkward around each other?!! Just look at them, it’s as if they’re trying to set boundaries but are so incredibly shy when just attempting to do so. Their smiles, awkward gestures, all remind me of how a boy and girl would react when they have feelings for each other. Of course I’m not going so far to say that they do in RL, you could see that they’re just trying to make each other feel comfy but have no idea how to LOL.
But tell me you didn’t feel a thing watching it! XDD
