Ena’s Korean Rom-Com Drama Recommendations!

Recently I blogged about Thai Chick Flicks on Youtubeย that I watched and recommend, this time round, I’ll be blogging about Korean Dramas! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

My favourite Korean Drama genre is romantic comedy, so the ones I recommend are also in this genre!ย I watch Korean dramas from a variety of sources, usually in Chinese subs because they are released a lot faster than the English ones.

Korean Drama Classics

These are the dramas that I love and strongly recommend, although they were filmed a few years back, I still love them now as much as I did then. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Full House

full-house-complete-korean-drama-english-subtitle-9cc48Synopsis:ย Han Ji Eun is a naive writer who got swindled out of everything she owned including her house by her best friends. Stranded in China, She managed to borrow money from an actor Lee Young Jae to return to Korea. On her return, she found out that her house was bought by Lee Young Jae. In an attempt to get her possessions back, she entered in a contract marriage with Young Jae for one year. In spite of losing all, Ji Eun manages to be cheerful and takes things in strike and the business relationship between the two becomes personal as they start to rely and care for each other. Based on a popular manhwa of the same title.

Review: From what I can remember, this is the korean drama that started my obsession with korean dramas, lol. I loved Song Hye Kyo in this movie, her cute and lovable looks and antics and her wonderful chemistry with Rain. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a must watch!

2.Goong aka Princess Hours

GoongCast

Synopsis:ย Set in an alternate 21st-century reality whereย Koreaย possesses a royal family, since 1945 to present, this show revolves around the lives of the Crown Prince Lee Shin, and his new bride, Chae-kyeong.

The series starts off with the news that the King, Shin’s father, is very ill. There is a grim outlook on the King’s health, the royal family scrambles to find a wife for Shin, so as to allow him to take over the royal throne if the situation requires. Despite being in love with another girl, the ambitious and talented ballerina Hyo-rin whom Shin initially proposed to (she rejects him to pursue her ballet dreams), he eventually marries a commoner to whom he was betrothed by his late grandfather in an old agreement with the girl’s grandfather. He marries the headstrong yet lovable Chae-kyeong after Hyo-rin’s rejection. Despite initially feeling nothing for Chae-kyeong, love eventually blossoms between the couple as time passes.

In the meantime, however, matters are further complicated with the return of Lee Yul and his mother Lady Hwa-Young, who was once the Crown Princess before the death of her husband, the late Crown Prince, older brother of the current King. Yul and his mother were chased out of the palace some time after the death of his father, and it is later revealed that this was due to the King’s discovery of an affair between Yul’s mother and the current King who was his father’s younger brother. Yul’s mother has returned with a sinister motive in mind; to restore her son back to the throne, which, in her mind, is rightfully his. A series of events befall the palace with the schemes Yul’s mother carries out. It is further intensified by the various scandals involving the royal family, which are inclusive of the Shin’s continuing relationship with his old flame Hyo-rin, and the budding love Yul develops for Chae-kyeong, his cousin’s new-found bride. Things get out of hand and the royal family takes matters into their own hands.

Review: I remember being obsessed with this drama and watching it even though it was my PSLE period. Lol! Now that’s a really long time ago. This was a really well produced drama, with elaborate and beautiful settings and costumes. Plus it was Yoon Eun Hye’s first drama and she really shined in this drama. Plus a lot of people were rooting for the second lead so it created quite a buzz then. However I rooted for the main lead, heh. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Coffee Prince

Coffee-Prince-01

Synopsis:ย The life of Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye) is not easy; she works many jobs to pay off debts and even gave up her feminine image. Choi Han Kyul (Gong Yoo) is the heir of a big food company, but his grandmother wants him to settle down, so she arranged many dates for him. After Eun Chan bumped into Han Kyul and was mistaken for a boy, Han Kyul decided to hire Eun Chan to be his gay lover in order to avoid the arranged dates. Desperately in need of money, Eun Chan had no choice but to accept. Han Kyul’s grandmother also made Han Kyul in charge of a filthy coffee shop in danger of being bankrupt. Eun Chan begged to work at the coffee shop, and not long after, feelings start to spark, except, how would Han Kyul accept his “homosexuality”?

Review: This is a really cute drama. It was one of the first drama I watched which featured a female cross dressing and behaving as a guy which was of course a cause of a lot of misunderstanding and humour that made for great drama. I love the pairing of Yoon Eun Hye with Gong Yoo! It’s the kind of pairing that made you root for them and wished they were a couple in real life, lol.

Laneige, Korean Actress Song Hye Kyo’s Beauty Secret

This is my entry for a Nuffnang & Laneige sponsored blogger’s challenge.

I am a K-drama fan, and I have loved watching Korean actress Song Hye Kyo in dramas especially since her Full House days. I also loved watching her in the drama, Worlds Within, where she had spectacular chemistry with her co-star Hyun Bin, whom she dated for a while after the show.

Full-House-jung-ji-hoon-rain-bi-3536304-800-600Song Hye Kyo and Rain in korean drama, Full House

Worlds Within Song Hye KyoThey had such good chemistry in Worlds Within, Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin.

Most recently, Song Hye Kyo starred in That Winter the Wind Blows, where she doesn’t seem to have aged and her skin is still flawless and fair…

Song Hye Kyo That Winter The Wind Blows

With her co star, Jo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo, looking fine as ever.

The secret to Song Hye Kyo’s fair and bouncy skin is Laneige, being their face and ambassador, Song Hye Kyo has no lack of access to their very hydrating products that keeps her skin smooth and supple!

Laneige is introducing their new BB cushion which is a compact that contains a patented cushion filled with cooling air and BB cream. It is a unique type of BB product with 5 benefits; soothing, skin tone correction, SPF 50+ PA+++, brightening and sweat proof.

How the Laneige BB Cushion looks like!

Laneige is looking for 10 winner who will attend the make up session recreating K-beauty looks with the Laneigh BB cushion.

And thanks to Laneige and Nuffnang, the 10 K-Beauty looks will enter the Laneige Beautiful Blogger Challenge where a Grand Winner will be crowned through public voting. The lucky beautiful blogger will win a 1 year Laneige K Beauty Blogger contract & $2000 cash price from Laneige!

The question we are to blog about is:

Which is your favourite Laneige skincare & make-up product, and why?

And my answer would have to be Laneige’s Water Drop Sun Care!

Laneige Sun Block

And of the three above, I’d pick Sun Block Supreme!

Laneige Sun Block Supreme

That’s because I think the most important beauty routine is protection against the sun’s harmful rays to prevent pre mature aging (ugly spots!!!) and the Sun Block Supreme has powerful sunscreen and waterproof formula that resists water and sweat which would be the most suitable in Singapore’s sunny and humid weather! ๐Ÿ™‚

If I am selected to be one of the top 10 winners, I would choose to re-create of my favourite looks from below:

1. Song Hye Kyo’s cute sexy looks in Full House

Cute floral inspired looks with pink and purple eye shadow and blush colours.

2. Son Ga In’s sultry sexy looks

Son Ga In Sexy 1

I probably won’t go shirtless like she did… HA.

Edgy and rock chic brown and black eye colours.

Last but not the least I might also go for Yoon Eun Hye’s Pretty in Pink in her Missing You look:

In the show she gives off a feminine fashionista look often carrying very light pink lip colours and au naturel looking skin, lightly brushed facial foundation coverage.

Ending off with a photo of what I’d consider a typical Ena make up look, bare face and dark eye liner! ๐Ÿ˜‰
