I’m Walking On Sunshine – The Sunshine Blogger Award

sunshine-blogger-award

An award? For moi?!! I am duly humbled and deliciously delighted that my dearest, sweetest (and inspiring) friend, Kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict felt that I brought a little sunshine to her life and, as a result, nominated me for a Sunshine Award. And, if that wasn’t enough, my little baby MBLAQ sister, Nelly of MyMyooz also nominated me. Really, though, if ever there were rays of sunshine both here in the blogosphere and simply in general, these two darling ladies are all that and more! Kfangurl and I go way back…way, way back and I am one lucky blogger to have her in my corner as both mentor and friend. Nelly and I bonded and I mean BONDED over our mutual love, respect, and ardent adoration of MBLAQ’s main lead vocal, G.O, and this is a bond that will never be broken even in light of the latest news of alleged departure of two of the five members of the group. But…please, let’s not go there right now, because I just can’t….

So let me first say thank you to both Kfangurl and Nelly for the nom – I love both of you, lots!! Like this:

My Lovable Girl…This Likeable Man

third-teaser-trailer-and-new-poster-for-the-Korean-drama-My-Lovely-Girl

I owe a lot to Rain. In fact, I owe him everything for where (and most likely who) I am today in my short, but turbulent career as a fangirl. He put South Korea on the map for me in more ways than one. He led me to MBLAQ’s G.O (and I am forever grateful – *bows* profusely to Rain). Contrary to probably the opinion (and belief) of many, I still have a very special place in my heart for Ji Hoon. And, I certainly have a deep and strong admiration for him as an actor, singer, and performer. Most importantly, however, I have a sound respect for him as a man. So when I heard he was returning to the small screen in way of a 16-episode drama entitled My Lovable Girl, my interest was piqued.

[series] Rain’s World of Endorsements: FuMa-licious!

I like to write about Rain….does it show? ♥♥

Fuma2Is it just me, or does Rain look delectably and deliciously happy when he is eating?  I cannot imagine him ever turning down an opportunity to endorse food – especially something sweet!

Back in 2007, Rain signed on to endorse FuMa Cakes in China.  Generally, it seems that in Asia signing on for an endorsement is a big deal, like in press conference big deal.  Unlike here in the States, I believe a lucrative endorsement in Asia is indeed a celebrated event complete with press (obviously) and perhaps even some champagne.  Fijan Fuma Foods Group was clearly happy with Rain on board for this campaign.  Golden boy meets golden snack cakes?  Yep, that works!

[Fangirl Footnote:  Isn’t he so perfectly handsome in that chocolate sweater and tortoise-shell framed glasses?]

Decked in white, ethereal and angelic, I love the way he moves throughout…

K-Shot Postscript: Rain 비 – Full House

I guess it is painfully obvious by now that I will never shy away from an opportunity to talk about Rain.  It is also clear that he manages to show up in every post even when it is not about him!  Yes, it’s true, I am a full blown Rain fangirl!  Luckily, this post IS about him.  When I posted Rain as my first K-Shot of Hot, I was in the process of watching his 2004 drama, Full House.  At that time, I had no idea how the drama would play out but what I did see of it at the time of writing was enough to convince me that Rain’s Young Jae would make some kind of transformation.  Now that I have long finished watching Full House, traveled to Seoul, and watched Rain walk through the West gate a fully discharged ROK Army sergeant, I am finally able to sit down and share my thoughts on his turn as bratty, loud, petulant, but eternally cute, Young Jae.
