ILICDD, Queen In Soo

ILICDD [120/170]


ILICDD oh ILICDD, I didn’t think you could get better, funnier, lovelier or more awesome-er than you already are. I’ve been watching for about 3 months now, still taking things slowly, an ep or 2 (at most 3) a day, savoring the goodness and loveliness of each episode, laughing over stupidity and silliness that count (as in RL they do happen but I so dun wanna admit to myself that I’m just as silly as others), crying and sobbing over small scenes that may not matter or seem to matter to others.

ILICDD: Kim Hye Ja & Jung Woo Sung

Kim Hye Ja

Yay, I’m half-way done with ILICDD, the loveliness and perfection continues ❤ ❤ Drama is still rawking my world, giving me endless laughs and gags, making choke tear up at the littlest and trivial but loveliest of moments, at times giving me both at the same time, making me look like a freak mad woman.

A dear friend of mine made a ILICDD post just yesterday, and said I’m not even there yet, nowhere close towards PERFECTION! I’m getting all excited EXCITED EXCITED, expectations heaped over a mountain now, if they fail to top the perfection that it is already where I am, I am going to eat you (you know who you are lol).

This is such a lame excuse to spam ILICDD along with you chinggu, but to commemorate the day I finally reach the halfway mark of this awesomesauce drama, I want to share one of my fav fav fav moments in this drama.

This is absolutely one of my fav because I could truly relate, when Hallyu crushes took over my world, and the amazing wonders they did to me LOL

*padam padam* oh how my heart fails me

Random shout out to the Cheongdam Dong family ♥


That is all, I really have no other better words to describe the awesomesauciness of this drama. One of the most original, creative and heartwarming dramas I have ever EVER seen. Hilarious without being OTT and slapstick, witty without being stupid, endearing without being cheesy, sarcastic without being offensive. Approaches real life issues with so much heart and hilarity. Mocks at human traits and foibles in the most creative of ways. And more than anything, never pretentious and never aims/try to be something it isn’t.

This drama has practically everything. Everything! EVERYTHING!

A diamond at its shinest, gold at its purest.


Note: Am at Ep33, when the real bromance between Hyun Woo and Sang Yeob begins! <3333

Stress reliever of all…

this. This. THIS!

JGL ain’t enuff to get me all energetic or pumped up for the next day, he services me well alright, with his smiles and genuine charm and everything (I melt into goo whenever he smiles like a crazy bum). But he is no where and no way any near to the bunch of peeps above who make me gag in undying laughter every night before I pop onto bed. Normal peeps in fact, who live lives like we do in RL, who encounter fun sad awkward stupid and bizarre unbelievable things like we do all day, who day dream day and night dreaming and hoping for things to turn out they want. Just like us, our lives, our daily encounters.

Thanks to the wonders and magic of the internet, thanks to the awesome redpinkboxes, I have finally found a way to get my ILICDD fix. I have found the way to drama heaven! I admit I was in a secret streak of jealousy back then, when all my drama buddies crazed and raved mad cray cray over this gem of a drama while I could just sit and stare. While they swooned mad over the guys, ajusshis, Kim Hye Ja and the bromance, I just stared green and envy at my twitter-feed, and cursed like mad that I couldn’t be part of the frenzy.

But better late than never! Good things can wait, and will always be there to endure the test of time. Although I’m only a mere 12 episodes in, I already have a feeling I will be hop on a re-watch of random episodes when the drama ends (who knows when I’ll get to finish this, it’s 170 eps!). It doesn’t require me a full-time commitment, it gives me the best of smiles and laughter, the jokes are always original and creative (never a dull moment, not yet at least), and the characters are all so preciously endearing and adorable! What more can I want as a stress relief?

Nothing substantial has happened yet so far, but I’m so ready for what is to come. Bring on the lies, the jokes, the romance, bromance… and just everything capable of making me laugh and cry. I’m just that easy to please. 🙂

Random on LDH and ILICDD

Oh yes, some random stuff on LDH after having not updated on our girl for some time. There isn’t much, girl is enjoying her holiday spree in the States right now, giving us updates from time to time thru weibo and twitter. She’s having the time of the world vacationing and relaxing obviously, her pics show that plainly and blatantly. They’re a bit posey and purposely shot (she’s quite the camera attentive lover we know) but hey, as long as she’s happy and having fun.

Now there’s this something that I’m curious and haven’t been able to get my hands on, even having been her fan of the longest of time. Her family migrated to Sydney when she was young, she studied there for a bit (hence her mildly decent grasp on the English language), came back to Korea to pursue an acting career. I think her family moved back with her, because she never really mentioned about her going back to Sydney or anything since, and her brother’s currently living in Seoul. But the thing that’s been elusive and has never been explained (prolly nobody cared), she’s also always flying to the States for holidays and stuff, and in her recent tweet, she even mentioned that she’s been paying electric bills and water bills for her mom while doing her day job as mommy’s driver there. I dunno, either mom’s living there or they have a family holiday home there. :/ I know she hails from a well off well-to-do family, but in fact, as a fan, I just realized that I knew so little.
