We Welcome The New Year!
Wishing all a happy, healthy and fabulous 2014!

Aaaargh! Lee Seung Gi and Yoona are dating!
The hottest story on New Year’s 2014. I’m not sure what to think of this information. I’m not that happy about the pairing… But Seung Gi gets the girl he wants(?). Maybe Seung Gi is not so heodang after all.

Watch this video from 2011 of Seung Gi and Girls Generation on 2 Days 1 Night. (It is also one of the best episodes with the 2 Days 1 Night boys use their creativity to complete their photo taking missions.)

At least Yoona didn’t end up with Joowon. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know why I think so myself. Joowon-Yoona don’t sit well with me. *shrugs*

Girls Generation’s Soo Young is also reported to be dating an actor. I guess Girls Generation are growing up. If all nine girls are revealed to be dating, I wonder how their fanboys are going to react.

Wedding Dress in Prime Minister and I (Ep 4)

The dress, the hair, the bouquet! All has to be perfect for the wedding. What about the man? I guess Nam Da Jeong (Yoona) has to worry about that at a later date.

Her Kate Middleton inspired wedding dress looks absolutely stunning but I think she’s a bit too skinny to fill out the dress nicely. Also, the dress will be absolutely perfect with a sweetheart neckline. That would further increase the slimming effect but obviously Nam Da Jeong doesn’t need any of that. Her hair is pulled back in a simple low ponytail and decorated with a tiara. The bouquet is made out of greenish-white hydrangeas surrounded by coral and yellow roses. The groom wears a bi-coloured pink rose corsage complemented with peach-coloured ribbon. Yes, I know. I should work in the fashion industry.

Prime Minister and I

20131222-232845.jpg

An ajusshi playing the main lead with a love interest that could be his daughter. Who knew this weird pairing will work so well? I credit it to great writing. Entirely. I am not denying the fact that the actors are good at what they do but I think the success of the show will be hinging on the writing more than anything else. Common sense tells us that the pairing of the main leads will not work without a good storyline. Who wants to see an ajusshi kissing a young, hot girl? I bet lots of ajusshis dream of doing it, but really nobody wants to see it.

Dear Drama Writer, please keep up your awesomeness because the moment your writing fizzles, this drama goes out the window.

The show reminds me slightly of Sound of Music. Take the Sound of Music, minus all the singing, insert awesome comedic timing, replace strict military discipline with Kendo, replace a pretty nun with a pretty journalist and reduce the number of kids from seven to three and we’re almost looking at Prime Minister and I.

I am looking forward to the next episodes to find out what happens. What I find fascinating is that I’m not watching the drama for any specific actor, I am purely watching for the drama itself.

I may be writing some blog posts related to this drama. Yoona’s beautiful wardrobe will definitely be featured it my posts!

By the way, Yoon Si Yoon looks… very different. And I’ve spend the last 4 episodes trying to figure out why. Is it really just the hair? Any insights?
