Turning Three…and Counting (Hopefully)

16 March 2014.

Has it been three years already since the day I registered this blog?

16 March 2011: I was that bubbly fangirl who aspired to become a decent blogger focusing on Korean dramas.

16 March 2012: The girl had grew up alongside her talking cupboard.

16 March 2013: The girl was maturing with regard to her thoughts and her drama blogging habit.

16 March 2014: Today, the girl realizes that the world continues to change and so is herself.


We’re bound to change because of various reasons: the surrounding and our inner selves.

Looking back at the past and comparing what it was back then with today…it feels different. Today feels alien to me and sometimes I don’t even have a clue about my own thoughts. It’s…complicated.

My drama watching habit has changed tremendously in these few months. I try to pick up new shows but it’s like searching for a pearl in the deep blue sea. I don’t know what I like and sometimes, it’s freaking frustrating.

Blogging is fun in a sense that it gives me a comfort. The blog is like my home: the cupboard where I keep my drama-addicted soul. But then, I am afraid that I will fall out of love with dramas and that will cause me to abandon my cupboard. I am terrified.

I am afraid that I’ll lose this virtual home one day.

Changes…are inevitable, right?

I am different from who I was three years ago.

My writing style has changed, my taste in dramas has changed, and I…have changed.


The perks of growing up, I guess.

I do wish I can go back to that time when I was brave, confident, and happy.

Don’t you?

I wish I can stay as a drama lover forever without growing up. Growing up is not fun at all.


Happy Third Anniversary, the talking cupboard. Thanks for being my virtual home all these years. May the odds be ever in our favour for the longest time possible.

To all the readers and followers: sorry, thank you, and I love you!

Yours truly (who was bitten by an emotional and insecure bug),

You from the Stars E04.avi_000204571

  1. saengil chukhahapnida !!!!! me too …I share the same worries about dramas !!!

  2. Happy anniversary! I think most of us change in regards to taste and preferences of dramas over the years. I’ve been watching asian dramas for around 7 years now and what I once liked when I first started my addiction I now consider mediocre and a cliche. It happens.

    The problem is when you feel the change between the you now and the you a year ago and you become unsure of what you like anymore.

    Hope to see more posts from you for another year~

  4. Changes… they happen when you’re not looking, don’t they? Congratulations on turning three! May the next year bring new confidences and loves and a fully stocked cupboard. πŸ˜‰

  5. Congratulations! Happy 3rd. Anniversary! Thank you for writing and sharing such a wonderful, blog. I discover your blog since Empress Ki’s beginning and now I’m always waiting for your recap with those intelligent and fun comments. I’m sure you’re giving the world the best you have and I’m sure the best will come to you. I want you to know that I really appreciate all your hard work. Congratulations one again! God Bless you!
    P:S: I would like to know what do you think about “Bride of the Century”, I’ve been captured by Hong Ki charisma.

    1. Thanks πŸ˜‰
      I haven’t watched BotC yet but I know that it receives decent response from Kdrama blogging community. I’m going to wait for a while and marathon the drama later when it’s approaching the end.

  6. Happy third anniversary!

    I know what you mean about your tastes changing, but I’d like to give you a few comforting words – change isn’t always bad πŸ™‚ Hopefully you’ll find new confidence and motivation. Keep up the good work!

  7. Congratulations on your anniversary! I started watching K-dramas about 3 years ago, roughly when you started this blog. I have mostly been a silent lurker here even long before I even heard of or joined soompi. We do change over time and I agree my drama tastes have changed as well. I find myself searching for the pearl of a drama these days too. Thank you for your insightful recaps and posts. Here’s to more treasures to be found and more dialogue to be had. πŸ™‚

  8. Congratulation on 3 years! I feel sad that I didn’t find you until this year but I’m happy you’ve become such a trusted source of information (and a friend) Thank you so much for your continued support and quick, meaningful recaps. I hope we never lose track of one another!

  9. ..Happy belated 3rd anniversary, dear Mimi~!

    So sorry for the lateness to know this, i was out travelling for sometimes.

    Yes, growing up is not fun, all the unlimited dreams, bravery and imaginations become limited. But, dear, one day you will look back to your youth and say it proudly to yourself and the world; “Look at that, Mimi… You were doing good deeds and having fantastic time.”

    And I’ll be there to be one of the witness of your youth dearie.. And shout it outloud that;
    “You are 1 heck of amazing young lady!”

    Lots of love and bear hugs for you..


Rant Out, Souls!
