MAN FROM THE STARS x MY SASSY GIRL

MAN FROM THE STARS is just getting better and better, never mind if it’s been embroiled in a plagiarism scandal. And the ending in episode 6 was something totally unexpected and yet a very nice surprise for a MY SASSY GIRL fan like me. I’ll always be in love with MY SASSY GIRL. I still…

outing celebrity couples

We have our OTPs, people that we hope would date each other; lucky us if they are already dating. Sometimes Most of the time, our OTP hopes come from dramas. But sometimes, a new couple emerges from out of nowhere and it strikes us that, hey, it might work out. Even if they haven’t worked…

you killed the boom-boom inside my heart

Talk about timing… on the very same night I posted this, news came out confirming that one-half of my O2 ship is dating a girl who’s not the other half of O2 with paparazzi photos to prove. *Sound of heart shattering* Another of my ship has sunk. The drama is over, it’s time for real…

THAT WINTER THE WIND BLOWS… the shrink in

[SPOILER ALERT] It’s becoming more and more immediate, this need to see a psychiatrist, in the same way that it’s immediate for Oh Soo to make Oh Young believe he loves her despite the con, and for the both of them to keep on living despite the clock ticking on their lives (her tumor, his…

fangirl vs shipper

One can be a fangirl without being a shipper. Or a shipper without being a fan. One can be both. One need not be both. Does that make sense? It makes sense to me. I was a shipper once, without being a fan of the individuals I was shipping. I was a shipper for their…
