[summary] The Incarnation of Money – Episode 24

Three months passed by and we’re already at the end of the journey that actually spanned more than 15 years, getting to know how money is a dangerous thing to begin with. Money can make some people turn a blind eye to the sight of a nearly dead person but at the same time, money can bring two different people together. Well…it can be regarded as the root of all evil, but if it’s used in the right way, money can bring smile and happiness.

Is it too late for the conscience to be shown towards the wronged by the criminals? For me it is. 15 years passed by and you only realize now that he’s like your own little brother? Dream on, Se-kwang. I still want to see Cha-don giving you the most humiliating judgement, in front of the people fooled by your mask.

A Guide to Joseon Hairstyles and Headgears

I think it’s about time to edit this post to add several types of other hairstyles and headgears. The hairstyles and headgears used during Joseon Dynasty were from the dynasties preceding it  such as Three Kingdoms Period and Goryeo Dynasty and also with influence from China’s dynasties. Here’s a post to list down mostly, if not all, the hats, headgears, and ornaments worn by the Joseon people. With reference to the dramas, I think it will be easier for us to see how the headgears and hairstyles look like.

When the fallen hero falls deeper, he doesn’t take the fall for nothing. Is it the case for the devil who rise higher? Nope, he’s climbing to the top without any worries. Cha-don really needs to teach him a good lesson. Not even three deaths can compensate for Se-kwang’s crimes and crazy ideology of justice.

Bad premonition. Sad news doesn’t come unannounced; it always come with some signs and although it’s uninvited, but it’s something that human beings are unable to escape from. The only thing that they can do is accept the news with open arms, though it’s too bitter to be swallowed.

15 K-Drama Dream Pairings: Secondary Couples That Deserve OTP Status

[Specially written for Soompi’s 15th Anniversary. Thanks a lot, Susan! ;)]

Hello! I am muchadoboutlove, a blogger at the talking cupboard. I’ve been an avid drama watcher since I was young, thanks to my father. Korean drama is my latest obsession and the blog was created to become my drama watching diary. Soompi is one of the earliest sites I frequented when I first got my very own internet connection  and it’s the first forum site I’ve ever registered with under the name kaeruchan (that is my nickname back in secondary school). It’s not too much to say that I got to learn so many things and meet amazing people through the wonderful site that is Soompi. For the 15th anniversary of Soompi, I feel so honoured and flattered to be given this opportunity to write for Soompi.

Have you ever encountered a couple or pairing in a K-drama or a K-movie that wasn’t the OTP (One True Pairing) or the main couple, but you loved this couple as much, or even more than the main couple? I have a few, or indeed, a handful of these pairings that I really wish to see again, paired together in a drama. Since these actors and actresses, who were once second leads, rise to become the main leads nowadays, it can be hard to see them meet again in dramas, but a fan like me can dream…right?

Hanbok for Women: Lee Se-ryung’s Style

This is actually a random post made after browsing the post that featured Boong-Do. I was searching for a female drama character that has worn every type of hanbok and suddenly, it hit me: why didn’t I think about Se-ryung? She experienced almost everything in her life; from a noble woman to a princess, before demoted to a slave and finally, a commoner. That gave her the chance to wear the hanbok for every social class and for that, she’s one lucky woman. In conjunction with the premiere of several sageuk this week, I present to you: Hanbok for Women, featuring Lee Se-ryung of The Princess’ Man.

Another purpose of this post is to make people start watching The Princess’ Man. Seriously, go and watch it, peeps!

How do you greet your enemy when both of you have decided to get rid of the masks? Will you be as composed as you were with your mask, or you’d feel helpless without it?

It’s just a matter of time until the puppets realize that their lives are being controlled by the strings of a puppeteer. The concern right now is whether the puppeteer realizes it or not, that those who used to be under his power are already two steps in front of him…
