51st Baeksang Awards Winners

The 51st Baeksang Awards was held last night and what an exciting night it was! While I wasn't able to watch the show myself, I was able to experience the surprising night thanks to a few friends Shura and Mimi. It was a great year for both the film and television categories and despite some of my chosen favorites didn't win, I couldn't say it was terrible because the actual winners are really good themselves too. And while I'm at it, let's how well I fared in the winner-prediction game.

51st Baeksang Awards Predictions

The 51st Baeksang Awards is happening tomorrow night. This is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, entertainment awards ceremony in South Korea as it encompasses both TV and film (when it's usually separated). I talked about Baeksang once a few years ago and made the mistake of predicting winners when I knew absolutely nothing. Well, maybe mistake is a bit harsh, but it wasn't the best decision. But this year I made it a mission to watch as many Baeksang nominated works as I can so I can say stuff and feel justified because I actually watched them. Now, because of limited time, I was only able to watch the film categories, and not even all because lack of availability. For dramas, I'll just gauge them off of the reviews I've read from other bloggers and commenters online.

Drama Review: The Girl Who Sees Smells

This drama took over my life the past 2 months. Okay, that may be an exaggeration. But I have a feeling this drama might be one of the more memorable dramas of the year, at least in the couples category. And for all the stupidity happening in the drama, The Girl Who Sees Smells moved my heart just a tad more than I'm personally comfortable of dealing with.

My Most Played K-pop Songs

I've been wanting to write something on the blog for a while but don't really know what. I've actually been working on something (hint: 51st Baeksang Awards) but I want to be as thorough as I can, at least in the film category. So in the mean time, I thought I can talk about a topic I used to talk about a lot in this blog which is K-pop. I actually used to write more about K-pop than K-dramas but I haven't listened to much music in general these days. So I thought it'll be interesting to write about my most played K-pop songs just for the fun of it. Also, the songs featured here may not be my current favorites, mostly because I listened to them a lot at the time while I haven't listened to the newer ones as much.
