I really like this drama a lot. The storyline is great despite of 4 episodes cut from originally 24 episodes 😦 . But i think there are some plot that lack of attention and not too great ending especially Seol and Prince Yang Myeong ending (sorry for the spoiler for those who haven’t watch this drama) and i like their childhood story better than when they are grow up. My final rating for this drama is 8/10. What do you think? Do you like this drama? Your thoughts in comment are appreciated! 😉

Touch Korea Tour : 3 things I would do in Korea

Hi everyone! this is my 3rd post and now i still want to talk a bit about Korea 😀 . (Make sure you read my previous posts! :* ). I want to make a to-do list if I go to Korea. There are so many things i want to do if I go there (probably would take a longgg time to finish it) but I will mention 3 things that i really really want to do in Korea.

Take a photo of me wearing pretty & colorful hanbok

I’m weak over cute and pretty things and here it comes! Super pretty and colorful hanbok! I just can’t stop staring at it. I love the combination of bright color, but pastel color looks good too! The flower prints, the colorful stripes really make a gorgeous combination, such a national treasure & heritage, really great! 2 days ago I just finished watching the recent and very popular K-Drama Moon Embraces The Sun which are the story of a kingdom where the casts wearing super pretty hanbok. Watching that kind of drama makes me love hanbok more and more ❤ .

Take a stroll, go to stylish cafe, and taking photograph

I often saw many articles about many stylish cafe in Korea, you know i love photography. i love to take pics of nature & scenery and also love to take pics of stylish place. So i want to take a stroll in the street, take my time, looking around, take some photos, go to cafes, enjoying the snacks, and take some photos again,haha.. (of course if the owner don’t mind because some of the fine restaurants and cafes in my country don’t allow me to take photos of their interior even with me in the photo 😦 ).

Try Jjimjilbang (찜질방)

This is the popular public bathhouse/ korean spa that i want to try. Watching many K-Dramas and variety shows scene taken inside of Jjimjilbang and it looked like really really fun (cracked the egg on your friend head sounds fun :p and i want to try Iced Sikhye too! ), so i thought i want to try it someday if i go to Korea.

Yeap, those are 3 things I would do in Korea. What do you think? Any interesting idea? Please share with me!
