I am not exactly a big fan of children but this boy is SERIOUSLY making me think that i should probably have one.
That moment when you know a show has got you hook line and sinker because you start shipping a pair of toddlers and you spazz over them like crazy.
Hoo and Ji Ah?
I’d sink with this ship!
Me with Korean Actors.
Every. Single. Time.
To my Han Namja,
My first Korean Love and ultimate Bias,
Thank you for being born and for gracing the world with your gorgeousness.
Here’s my list:
I find this category really hard to answer since i don’t particularly have one as my biases vary (I am absolutely HOT for Channing Tatum and Robert Downey Jr just as an FYI as of the moment).
However, if we’re talking about a favorite due to purely sentimental reasons, it will be TOM CRUISE as i loved him eversince i was a school girl in TOP GUN and i still can’t get over how he’s still able to give me the same kind of butterflies in the stomach from that time, when i watched him once again as drool worthy, sexy as hell, popular rocker Stacey Jaxx just recently in ROCK OF AGES.
The man who made me believe that there is a whole world of hotness in the Asia Pacific that i have not yet explored at a time when i was so enamored of the Brad Pitts and the George Clooneys.
He made my heart go pitter patter the moment i laid eyes on him on MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON and he turned me into a raging k-drama addict not only with his good looks but also with his spazzworthy performances while in character that there are not one too many times late at night when i imagine myself as Sam Soon or Ra Im.
My Han Namja, the man that with just a glimpse of his face can send me squeeing, for the Korean category, on my list will be the one and only HYUN BIN.
A very recent find but i can say that he is all time because he toppled my ever favorite Taiwanese gege Joe Cheng off my number 1 spot when he played the ever so perfect, flawless guy you’d want to bring home to momma Li Da Ren in IN TIME WITH YOU.
There’s just something about BOLIN CHEN that’s so soulful.
There’s something about the way he stares that seem to pierce way deep down into the recesses of your soul that it can only be described as “come hither”.
He’s dark and broody and mysterious but when he smiles, it lights up his whole face that it leaves me breathless.
It’s that exercise in contrast that made me fall head over heels for him.
This man plays the lovesick, long suffering boy with an unrequited love to perfection and maybe for that reason, i fell for him hook, line and sinker.
They can say whatever they want about his acting, they can label him all they want as a mediocre actor but there’s a reason why YAMAPI is one of the Hottest commodities in the Japanese entertainment industry and i think it’s because he holds such an elusive charm and strong mass appeal that one can’t help but like him.
Sure, the pretty boy good looks does not deter from that in any way but to me, it is the earnestness in which he portrays his characters that converted me into such a big fangirl.
When he cries, he cries as if he means it. When he looks at his female lead, he makes you believe that he is sincerely in love with her at that moment.
Even his signature pursing of the lips seem to be always part of his character that even if i’ve seen him do it in Pro Dai and then in Buzzer Beat, he still gets me in the heart as if i’ve seen him bring that nuance to his character for the first time even if the truth is, i’ve seen him do that time and time again.
Who doesn’t love a girl that’s so drop dead gorgeous but isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself?
Whether she’s playing a caricature of a cop in Ms. Congeniality or playing lead in a heavy hitting drama that delivers a message, SANDRA BULLOCK is sheer perfection.
However, to me, it is her real personality while off character that has really endeared her to me.
That awwww inspiring moment she gave me when i saw her high five audiences at the Oscars while all glammed up and decked out in a Monique Lhuillier gown or the grace that she has exuded under pressure when news of her ex husbands cheating made the rounds.
She is a a good mother to her adoptive son and i love how she has been able to retain her sense of humor despite the divorce hell that she has went through that makes her such a class act in my opinion as compared to other actresses around.
The Proposal is one of my most favorite rom-coms ever and it is thanks mostly to Sandra.
I really can’t wait to see her next project and to see what she has up her sleeves for her audiences the next time around.
Ugh… Where do i start with how much I LOVE HER?
I mean it.
I LOVEEEEEEEE HER.
So much that sometimes i get confused if i want to be her or want to just get to know her.
Her drama choices might have been hit and miss after My Name is Kim Sam Soon but KIM SUN AH is an actress in the truest sense of the word because you can just see her passion and dedication to the characters that she’s played.
To her, It doesn’t matter if the storyline has gone down the crapper or if the ratings are not according to her expectations. Sunny is and will always be a true professional who would bring her A-game to her projects and it is evidenced by her Baeksang worthy performances from start to finish, no matter how mediocre the plot of her drama might have been.
She is not afraid to push the boundaries.
To always take on new characters that would challenge her an actress and she will do everything that’s necessary whether it be gaining 30 pounds or starving herself just to bring her characters to life for her audience.
And don’t even get me started about how she creates chemistry with each and every one of the actors she’s paired with.
She takes such a backseat to them and lets them shine in their characters and i guess i wouldn’t be too presumptuous to say that thanks in part to Sunny, Cha Seung Won, Hyun Bin and Lee Dong Wook are the hot actors that they are today.
When someone who’s not yet popular is paired with her, then it’s guaranteed that after getting paired with her they become popular and if they are already popular, then she makes them even MORE popular by doing the same thing.
And i believe that’s her magic.
That and the care and concern that she shows to her fans and co-workers that is genuine and real and that endears her to almost everyone she gets to meet and most of all, she’s an inspiration to all womankind for growing old soooo gracefully while retaining all that sexiness and vampiness that can give all those other actresses a good run for their money even if they are all younger than her.
I have made such a long post already in my blog previously about how much i love ARIEL LIN so for the same purposes and reasons, i am reposting it here just to explain why i love her and how much i adore her:
The girl is literally an acting chameleon.
Just watch In Time With You and then watch her in It Started with a Kiss and you’d get to see how she literally imbibes her characters and breathe life into them.
Heck even throw in a little of Tokyo Juliet and Love of the Condor Heroes and you’d get to see how she is able to reinvent herself as another person depending on the story and the character.
The reason why i love Ariel’s acting and why i adore her as an actress is because of her ability to always show something new depending on her projects.
She’s a filial daughter, a good sister and she’s just so genuinely serious with her craft and with improving herself that you can’t help but admire not just her acting ability but also her values as an actress.
Another thing that’s inherent in Ariel is her ability to create crazy chemistry with anyone of her leading men.
People ship her with Mike then with Wu Zun then with Joe and Hu Ge and now with Bolin.
And i can’t say i blame them.
It’s because she has this uncanny way of really making us believe that she is not just playing a role but rather living as the characters that we see in the story of any drama that she’s acting on.
The more that Ariel gets older, the more her acting matures and the more beautiful she’s becoming.
One thing is for sure.
I can’t wait to see what this girl has up her sleeve and i am still praying up to now that she would retract her drama retirement because if she indeed does it?
I will be almost half giving up already on watching Taiwanese dramas because to me?
She is really literally only one of the handful of T-drama actresses that are really worth watching.
I really don’t know that much about SHINOHARA RYOKO outside of the characters that she plays outside her jdrama but whenever i see her onscreen, i like what i see.
She is the type of actress who seem to throw herself into every character that she plays.
I love how she can make me ship whatever OTP she’s playing at the moment and to root for her and her leading man no matter whoever it is that she may be paired with.
I sincerely wanted to kill Lin Zhi Ling in Tsuki No Koibito mostly because i just want her and Kimutaku to end up together and i also love the fact that she’s one of the rare Japanese actresses who has no qualms about being passionate with her onscreen partners if and when the situation calls for it.
I’m always excited to see Shinohara in a drama that even if i have no plans of watching it, as soon as i know that she’s in it, then i’m in.
Her best work for me however would remain to be Anego as she made me live out my Jin fantasies vicariously through her and when Shota had the hots for her as Maemi in Moon Lovers?
Then that’s it.
I was sold.
She will be the cougar noona i want to be when i grow old.
Here you go anon… Have a start with one of my most favorite fanmade MV’s of their offcam moments that i must have watched a zillion times.
If you want some of the BTS from My Name is Kim Sam Soon, you can find it HERE on Dailymotion.
You may also refer to my previous post about this ship HERE to learn more about their history and for reasons why people really believed something went on with them during the time that My Name is Kim Sam Soon was being shot and even long after.
During an interview last year with Kim Sun Ah on Taxi around November , Kim Sun Ah said that Binnie and her are still in touch up to the time that he entered Military Service.
More than that, she said that they drink alone together and hang out with just the two of them on occassions when they don’t have work and call each other.
The timing indeed is very suspect.
Sunny putting up that account and Wookie resurrecting from God knows where after being inactive in me2day?
And this, months after Sunny has also deleted her previous account to lie low from the issues sorrounding Wookie and her on the same SNS site?
I see what they did there.
Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah attend KingKong manager’s wedding
Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah attended KingKong manager’s wedding this past weekend. The groom is Kim Sun Ah’s manager, his name is also Lee Dong Wook. lol. And guess who was the emcee? It’s Wookie, of course! ^^ Fellow artists from the agency were also in attendance, such as Kim Bum, Lee Chung Ah, and Seo Hyo Rim (officially joined the agency last month).
