Canon (feat. Lee Je Hoon and Shin Min Ah)

Whelp, I didn’t think that it would be this fast, but apparently Canon Korea has courted Lee Je-hoon to join Shin Min-ah as the faces of its latest camera line, EOS M6. Looks like the cameras in Tomorrow With You are a part of product placement but I thought it was for Shin Min-ah as she has been endorsing Canon since 2015 (if I’m not mistaken). I’ve said before that Je-hoon has strong ties with cameras since a long time ago, and this endorsement is his second for camera line after Samsung, which paired him up with Han Hyo-joo (they even have a cute mini movie for the CF!). Yeay for more pretties, and bonus for Tomorrow With You fans who still can’t let go of the characters 🙂

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?

[recap] Arang: The Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 7

Hi everyone! Sorry for the late recap, we’ve been busy with a lot of school stuff (boring stuff), but here’s the recap! There’s not much plot movement in this episode, but there is a lot of Arang and Eun oh bonding time as well as introductions of new creatures which roam this mortal world! So onward we go!

[recap] Arang: the Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 5

Episode 5

Eun oh is looking for Arang when Dol swe catches up to him and asks where he’s going since the funeral is still occurring. Eun oh replies he’s going back to the office and Dol swe thought they were leaving. It’s because of that woman isn’t it?! Dol swe feels betrayed that Eun oh would do so much for a woman Dol swe has not even met (haha bromantic jealousy?). He starts his interrogation, but Eun oh tells him to meet up at the office later before running off.

[recap] Arang: the Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 4

This drama is definitely the new definition of pretty. What’s not to love, when everything is so gorgeous? The people, the camera work, and even the clothes? What amazes me the most is the camera work, which makes everything looks like they come straight from paintings. The special effects aren’t that flashy, but I can take it since this is a fantasy themed drama. One might find the story slowing down a bit in this episode, but I enjoyed it so much because there’s a lot of things that worth the watch.

And this is the third time I’m changing the featured image. It’s hard to choose one!

[recap] Arang: the Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 3

Episode 3

So Eun Oh closes his eyes, expecting a kiss from Arang only to find out it was his imagination (ha! who called it?!) and realizes he’s going crazy. The next morning, he hands Dol Sae a letter, telling him to give it to Jun Wal. Dol Sae asks if he’s really going to be the magistrate for Milyang and Eun Oh replies he won’t be it for that long.

[recap] Arang: the Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 2

Yeah, I know I’m late. Life seems to be beckoning me to go out instead of staying in the confines of my room and my videos were making the internet lag which means my mother couldn’t watch her dramas. If mama kich couldn’t watch dramas, the kich household is not happy.

Episode 2


Moo Young continues to chase the two while on horseback and to prevent him from following closely, Arang takes out some peach blossoms and throws it at him. When they reach a safe distance, Eun Oh forces Arang off the horse and demands to know where she got that hairpin which looks exactly like the one he gave his mother. Arang replies that she had it with her since she died. Eun Oh deduces that it means she must have met his mother, however she won’t know since she lost her memories.

[recap] Arang: the Magistrate’s Chronicle – Episode 1

Well, I’m back alive and kicking (pun not intended). So you’ve got ghosts, ghost reapers, gods, shaman, and people all in one drama which you’d think would turn out to be a scary ghost hunting “Walking Dead” sort of deal, only to find a funny comedy in a Joseon Era setting – not that I mind. It’s better this way!

Upcoming Drama Updates

Since I’ll be quite busy in this upcoming 2-3 weeks, I’ve been forced to pay less attention to dramas. I even have to put a hold to my Baker King! But this is all for my future so I don’t exactly have any choice 🙂 Still, I’m so excited about the upcoming dramas and I do read the news and updates, it’s just I don’t update about them here. So…this is a make up post for the latest news about the upcoming dramas: Arang: Magistrate’s Chronicle, Five Fingers, and Nice Guy.
