Personal Taste review

MBC's Personal Taste


Kae In lives in a famous historic home built by her architect father. Jin Ho is an architect who needs to scout out the house for a potential business deal. After being dumped by her long-time boyfriend, Kae In wants to befriend a gay man who can become her roommate and help her out with living expenses. When Kae In mistakes Jin Ho as being gay at their first meeting, he goes along with the ruse to gain access to her house. But when he starts falling for her, things get a little complicated.
(^credits to Viki, it has a much better description than what I could come up with ^^; )


-Lee Min Ho as Jeon Jin Ho : An architect who moves into Song Go Jae under the pretense of being gay. Practically everyone falls for him because of his good looks and personality(it being LMH, you can't really blame them). As for his mother I'll leave it at she's a cliche drama momma. He loves his mother and is a good guy with a bit too much pride. He and CR's father had beef but they are friends/rivals.
- Son Ye Jin as Park Kae In : The naively trusting, honest, daughter of a famed architect who is herself a furniture maker. Not without her own lovable quirks and kindness, she's the cliche transformee of the drama. Staying true to herself is what makes the drama.

-Kim Ji Suk as Chang Ryul : Rival architect, he and JH's father's had beef. Orginally dated Kae In before trying to marry her bff/roommate of 10 years. He really matures/grows throughout - he can def. grow on you at the end.

- Wang Ji-Hye as In Hee : PLAYER HATA of the series. She's gorgeous and plays the royal idget of the series. It is pretty sad though when you look at it and realize she feels like she gets nothing, but really I'm glad it ends the way it does for her. Kae In's room mate for 10 years who married CR after a month of dating.

Sides : 

Tae Hoon/ 2AM's Seulong! (guess who sang the OST ^^)
 Director Choi - gay director of the TAM Art Center Project who acts as a fatherly cupid almost in this drama - love his part poor guy, 
Hye Mi - JH's supposed fiancee, 
(Jo Eun-ji) Lee Young-sun - anyone would be lucky to have her as a friend/Kae In's married best friend
Sang Joon - JH's assistant/friend. This guy could host his own comedy show - does some stupid things but in the end it looks like things work out

Overall: 9.5/10

It felt very real, despite there being an age difference in the actors. Happy ending(In a nice romantic comedy that's all you could ask for). HILARIOUS. Never dragged for me. The gay twists of the series give it a flare that I haven't seen in other dramas. Ridiculously cute - they add a lot more of the romance aspects than other dramas. Lots of cameos, too! Would've added pictures of full cast but I can't find any ><

Definitely should watch!! Tbh I started watching it b/c of LMH and Seulong, but thoroughly enjoyed the series after. In the end it's all about the romance hehe and if it's available in your region, viki's comments can be a bit harsh (which is when I turn them off) but really make everything more entertaining.

*It's been a while since I'd finished a series - I watched most of Dr.Jin but didn't watch the last few episodes, Watched a third of Coffee Prince but think I'll pick it back up.

Gangnam Style, End of season

in a panda costume!! I know it's become taboo in the kpop fandom but the dance IS really fun and PSY really broke through to America- no one else has been heard on our stations so much! Plus, Rhapsody added kpop to their library after he got big so kpop is no longer illegal download/hard copy/Itunes privy!

It was a productive Halloween, needless to say(=

And yesterday was our last Competition this season! Tons of suspense to see the video tomorrow

Lioele BB Cream Review

Lioele BB Cream 4.5/5
Texture: Creamy, good for moisturizing but not  too overbearing. Oily skinned people may have a rough time though!
Coverage: Buildable medium
Pros: Good coverage/color/consistency, skin feels dewey afterwards, pretty good price!
Cons: does not cover blue/purple undereyes as well as potentially could
Would I buy again?: Probably! Decent price for decent product

You can buy it from! Check out my other reviews on BB creams from there by clicking the tago n the side (Missha Perfect Cover, Fairydrops Picture Perfect, Oriental Gold)

Have a good day(=

Wonder Girls: The Movie

Aww, cheesy end =D

Tbh though, it had no plot and was kinda jumpy(plot and editing). It was a good Drake and Josh/Hannah Montana/Boy Meets World/ICarly type of show though! Fun to watch, ending was cute, Mitchie was really funny.

Their English is really good, Lim especially! The acting was typical 21st century Nick - not that great. LOVE THE WG! But Nick just doesn't have the best acting atmosphere.

Kdrama: Big review

Hola! I was waiting for Dr.Jin (funnily, I set it aside to finish Big^^) and since Suzy was in this decided to give it a go!

Big : Fantasy Romance


KKJ and YJ get into an accident and KKJ ends up in YJ's body while YJ ends up in a coma in KKJ's body. Is KKJ supposed to marry his teacher now, but as a 30 yr old doctor?! What will Da Ran do?! What was YJ going to tell her before the accident? What was he really feeling about her before it?


-Seo Yoon Jae/ YJ (Gong Yoo, he really grew on me. Not LMH stat, but the most of anyone in the drama.) : An early thirties pediatrician about to marry DR, whom he met at a friends wedding; long story short she fell down a flight of stairs and she was his patient. Se Young, doctor friend, is his ex and moms preferred girl. Very calm, peaceful, kind. I don't think I was the only one who appreciated the shirtless morgue scene.

-Gil Da Ran / DR : Mid twenties teacher about to marry YJ. Clumsy and childish (much like her mom). Just not..the brightest crayon in the box. Un-confident /very shy. Likeable though! Goofy family (Her dad was her moms teacher/ do student-teacher relationships run in the family?), her brother Choong Shik is probably the most lovable character in the show for me. She could make rags look pretty.

-Kang Kyung Joon / KKJ : 18 yr old student. Meets DR on a bus and falls for her. Has very large inheritance from his mom, who died in America. Came to Korea to live with his greedy/not-so-morally-right Aunt and Uncle. His maturity really grows through the drama! But he has his teenage boy moments. Lucky actor basically was paid to sleep on a hospital bed for 10+ episodes.

-Ma Ri (Suzy!!) : 18 yr old student. Knows KKJ very well, best friends. She's convinced they're soul mates but he doesn't think so. (Stalker!!) Very comical, but not very dynamic - stays true to her ways and doesn't really learn. Pretty selfish but I'm sure she believes it's best for KKJ and her.

Overall: 6.5/10

Dragged a lot last 6 episodes and the ending left a lot to the imagination (not a big fan of. I like to be Ma Ri stalk stat when it comes to how the characters lives finish! haha). Also, there was the chemistry but the Hong sisters had way too much push/pull for me. Good drama but not great. A 10 ep. drama put into 16, and not very dynamic. Sweet moments and funny crazy-omma moments in here though(= Lots of other drama references too!

Stay safe in the Phillipines! And have fun watching the rest of the Olympics =D Way to go Phelps and Gabby Douglas!!

Microwave brownie

For those nights you just need your chocolate and alas, have no chocolate chips - this is PERFECT!! (I say this as I'm eating one rn)

What you need:
- 2 tblsp flour
- 1 tblsp Sugar, Cocoa powder, Vegetable oil (would not reccomend switching with applesauce - turns into a gummy mess because there's no egg), Water
-Dash of salt
-Pecan bits/choco chips/sprinkles/etc. (whatever you like in your brownies!) (opt.)
-Spoonful of ice cream (opt.)

Mix everything into the mug and microwave for 40 seconds or so and enjoy!!

I really wanted something chocolate (for over an hour!) so I caved and made this, yumm

It has roughly 300 calories with no nuts/sprinkles/ice cream but is def. big enough to satisfy cravings. I've tried making it healthier but this has the best consistency opposed to applesauce and olive oil! Maybe it''s time to crack out the Canola oil! haha

Have a good day!

Cow Appreciation Day

Totally didn't order the healthiest version - even though I should've gotten the most expensive combo just because it was free! haha But nothing can beat Number 1 original sandwich though!!

Next year am going to ALL the Chik Fil As here, didn't realize you could go to more than just one until after I had taken a shower and stuff ><

Marching band solo. On clarinet. No mic. ME? Oh man!!


Ate all my main meals on vacation but had tons of dessert on vacation,
I avoided most processed things though and went for greens! Gosh my sweet tooth might actually be satisfied for a long long time (whole week probs haha!)

Hahaha have actually been using twitter lately!

When my dad, brother, sister and I went shopping we stopped by a XX21. My sister wanted a dress so my dad offered to buy me one too! =D I accidently grabbed the wrong size so when we got home, I put it aside so my mom and I could return it later.


My sister ended up washing it. It's her size so I guess it's hers now. Even if I wanted to, my body frame doesn't fit the dress really - I'd have to go anorexic to fit it/some unhealthy body fat percentage for my age.

Sure I could lose about 5 lbs. But where would the fun that comes with cooking and making food go? I already don't eat much processed food anymore, and drink only water and tea!

It's still a pretty dress though!

Healthy homemade chicken and spinach hot pocket

Why hadn't I thought of this before today, it's so yummy!!

What you need:
-Lavash Bread ( or a tortilla )
-Chicken (already cooked)
-Mushroom (Opt. replace with peppers, etc.)

1. Spread a handful of spinach evenly over half a lavash bread wrap (evenly covering whole bottom)
2. Take sliced/cubed mushroom and chicken and spread it around evenly
3. Layer the cheese on on top!
4. Toaster oven on medium for 4 minutes
5. Roll and enjoy =D

Reminded me exactly of a hot pocket - but better because there's no added preservatives/salt/sugar! /this could also be a quesadilla, but it reminded me of a hot pocket so, healthy hot pocket is it's name

Animazement 2012

 Hello! Panda box bigger than my head, prob. overpriced because the supermarket probably has it for a few dollars less, but it was worth it

Only went to Saturday this year, would go today(Sun.) but I'm so tried, finals are next week 
and the house needs a good cleaning, see you next year!
Speaking of which, next year I think I might...cosplay! I was thinking Kairi from KH2 or FFX Yuna, but the latter is really common so I'm not sure, definitely going to need to get some friends on this case with me..

Btdubs, whoever took the CD, I'm watching you >>

People these days

I'm finding that as I get older, I push myself to step out of my comfort zone if it's for a good reason/thing.

And yesterday at an assembly, this girl was being just plain ugly about everyone. One girl had a very thick accent with a high pitched voice, another girl had a lisp, a student who we should've been proud of because of what he accomplished was called "just as fat as his mom."

After I hear, once again, the girl behind me go, "Ugh I hate people with lisps"('Cause I'm totally sure they love their lisps!!) I turn around and go, "Why are you being so mean to them?" She didn't look at me (although her friend saw). Again. No response.
So I poke her, thinking maybe she couldn't hear. Instead of answering my question she just looks at me and says, "Don't touch me. I don't know you!" with this disgusted look on her face(really does wonders on how you automatically judge someone's appearance with personality). I said something about how rude her comments were and the people up there were trying there best, then turned back around.
According to my friends, I turned around but was meanwhile being called some choice words and threatened to get slapped. Oh. Well, if slapping someone and getting a lonesome suspension makes you think about how you talk, then so be it. I won't hit you back.

Just please remember, don't embarrass your parents by how you talk, nor make fun of people with stuff they can't really help. There's a different boundaries with friends than someone you don't know and don't like because of how they talk.

Off to go give a speech! Bye y'all ~

Hola! L'Oreal HiColor Magenta turn out

Hola yall(= It's been a while hahaha

Dyed my hair Ariel/Ariana Grande red a week ago!! I'm debating whether I should dye it once more and then go back to brown, or just go back to brown once it fades(which it does fast O.O and I'm only washing my hair with shampoo like 2x/week)

I used L'Oreal HiColor Magenta, and it worked really well with no bleaching at all! My roots turned out a bit lighter but I think that migth've been my fault for when it was put it on. I used a 30 developer and a packet of brass/copper eliminator. It was left on for 25 minutes give or take.

(After, 1 shampoo)

Spring Break starts tomorrow! Super excited, because it's WG championships and then free time is back! =D

Edit: I have an extra tube of unmixed dye, so I've applied a conditioner/dye hair mask thing a couple of times, but the color hasn't faded too much. Going to have to go back to brow soon for jobs and things though TT

Bruce Lee: 11 memorable quotes

"If you always put limits on what you do,physical or anything else, it'll spread into the rest of your life. It'll spread into your work, your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. Man must constantly exceed his level."
-Bruce Lee
1. A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.

2. A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.

3.Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successfull personality and duplicate it.

4.I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

5.I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.

6.It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.

7.Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.

8.Real living is living for others.

9.Simplicity is the key to brilliance.

10.Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

I'm currently devouring information I can find about him and his philosphies. I hadn't realized what I was missing out on haha
