Dramas that should be, could be, should have been, and could have been. I’m watching 3 current dramas right now, and none of them, I mean literally NONE OF THEM, hooks. At all. Even with the hotties, eye-candies, pretties, the solid performances, you name em, even with LDH and Hyukie! The only saving grace that is and has been preventing me from cursing at the insufferable thankfully, is Queen In Soo and ILICDD (which I have just finished last night in tears of happiness). Which aren’t even current dramas, and which I don’t even want to mention in the same sentence as the pile of inferior quality I’m subjected to.
Year 2012 was a wonderful year for dramas, packed with gems and break-outs, filled with surprises and shocking revelations. I guess you can’t have it all. Luck doesn’t strike every time.

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. 😉

Jung Eun Ji, how much more awesome can you be?!!!!
So I was browsing Youtube for 1997 stuff, BTS clips and interviews (this drama has taken over my life and I am dreading the day it ends T__T) and came across this clip of JEJ singing Kim Bum Soo‘s Bogoshipda (Stairway to Heaven OST).
And I’m instantly BLOWN. Jaw-dropped dumbstruck.
By how much she put into the song, and by how emotionally evocative she was while doing it. It was as if she was in her lil own world, feeling every moment of it, indulging in every second of the story conveyed through the lyrics.
I cried like a baby. >_____<
Love her even more now.
