• Descendants of the Sun: Song Joongki’s Treat at 한라산

    With the high viewership rating and all the love received from public, Song Joongki gave a treat to the entire drama team of Descendants of the Sun on 01 April. Due to the overwhelming amount of people crowding the place, they even changed a restaurant at the very last minute. The media still caught hold of the news and flocked to the new restaurant in no time. Look at the crowd. Song Joongki came out for a while to greet the media and allowed photographs to be taken. Thanks to the media photos, I managed to find the address of the restaurant they visited! The barbeque restaurant opens til late and…

  • Descendants of the Sun: 서래갈매기

    Have you watched episode 13 of Descendants of the Sun? After Yoo Sijin and Seo Daeyoung returned to Seoul from Urk, they got 3 days leave which they decided to spend their time drinking. The place where they struggled to stay awake from 72 hours of drinking is situated in Seoul! I was screen capturing the scenes of this episode and went a little overboard because I simply couldn’t resist the drunk and cute Song Joongki. (Coughs) This place is fairly easy to reach, as compared to the dal.komm coffee cafes I introduced previously. How to get to 서래갈매기 Hop on the subway to Hoegi Station and take exit 1. Come out…

  • Descendants of the Sun: dal.komm Coffee [02]

    I am back with another filming venue of drama Descendants of the Sun! I must warn you though, this place is not in Seoul either. Good news is this place can be easily accessible via subway as well, like the one mentioned in my previous post! Episode 1 where Song Joongki and Jingoo sat down at a cafe after catching thief Kim Minsuk and sending him off to a hospital. The two of them each sat with a soft toy that Lee Kwangsoo wanted them to take, for them never to return to his shop. This is once again, another dal.komm Coffee outlet. How to get to dal.komm Coffee Hop…

  • Descendants of the Sun: dal.komm Coffee

    If you have not heard about the new Korea drama “Descendants of the Sun”, you are definitely missing out. Starring Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo, episode 6 of this drama has already broken the viewership record of drama “My Love From the Star” last episode. Song Joongki has captured so many female hearts that there is now a term “송중기 효과 (Song Joongki Effect)”. I am obsessed with this drama myself and I am too embarrassed to say how many times I have watched and re-watched the episodes so far. To distract myself a little, I went to search for the filming sites that had appeared in the drama so far.…

  • Returning to Childhood in Seoul

    Back to my Korea trip in July! 4 months has passed since my trip and boy, I am missing Korea so badly. Everyone of us woke up to an empty and growling stomach. Butterfinger Pancakes to save the morning! When I said I haven’t tried Butterfinger Pancakes before, I received gasps from my friends who couldn’t believe me missing out on the goodness. Please do not belittle the quantity. As much as the 5 of us wanted to stuff these delicious plates of food into our stomach, we simply couldn’t anymore. I felt like if I had continue stuffing, I’d need to loosen the button on my shorts.If you haven’t tried (gasp at you) and…

  • Running Man EP262: Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race [02]

    I am back with Part 2 of the Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race broadcast on 30 August 2015! This post has taken longer than expected because I went overseas for a short trip and busy with work. Yeah, all the excuses. It’s plainly because I was lazy. A whole lot of pictures in this post, so less words. Yay for you! Hope you are full when reading this post though. Or you’ll end up like me, always taking a break from the post to fill my tummy with meat. Are you ready? Let’s go! Gary, Haha and Nam Bora were first brought to eat Kimchi Stew (김치찌개) at a restaurant near Hongdae.…

  • Running Man EP262: Taxi Drivers’ Restaurant Race [01]

    It took me some time to come up with this post because I usually write at night when it’s all peaceful and quiet to pen my thoughts, but having to look at all these food photos are apparently too much for my mental state to fight the hunger pangs.  The same reason why I don’t follow foodie accounts on Instagram. Episode 262 of Running Man is a race where members board a random taxi and have the driver recommend a dish. If the dish coincides with the team’s previously chosen dish, the team wins. Else, the team will have to eat whatever dish the driver recommended, before boarding the next taxi. This…

  • Seoul Chillax

    After the hectic concert days, it was finally down to our own itinerary for the rest of the trip. I got to meet a new Japanese friend with my travel mate and we hanged out together the entire day. We started off the day with an early lunch at 별다방미스리 (Miss Lee Cafe) in Myeongdong. Does the restaurant name ring a bell to you? This is the restaurant where YongSeo couple (Yonghwa from CNBlue and Seohyun from Girls Generation) visited in We Got Married Season 2. They visited the store in Insadong, but this outlet in Myeongdong is more convenient in my opinion. We had the entire second floor to…

  • Super Show 6 Encore

    The second day started off with sundae soup at 마포소문난족발순대국, near our guesthouse. I’d lose my voice if I consume spicy food in the morning, so I ordered a non-spicy one. Surprisingly, the non-spicy sundae soup also tasted awesome! I guess we came to the right store. This place seems famous with the pictures of broadcasting stations hanging on the wall. The photo below isn’t blur, by the way. The steam from the pipping hot sundae soup blurs out the ingredients. The sliced meat pieces were soft and chewy. The glutinous rice steamed to perfection. I couldn’t get enough of the tasty soup. With our bellies filled to the brim, we…

  • Continuing… July is Seoul Wonderful

    The first day in Korea was indeed a busy day. Meeting with different people to pick up and exchange tickets for our Super Junior 6 Encore Concert. We headed on to Chocolat BonBon, opened by Super Junior member Eunhyuk. A small and cozy cafe. Eunhyuk’s mum was there as a cashier when I visited. Glad to see customers other than fangirls visiting the cafe. It’s a sign that cafe is well accepted by public, isn’t it? We stayed for a while before hopping on a cab to the MOM House, a guesthouse in Myeongdong, opened by another Super Junior member Kyuhyun. The cab ride was so comfortable that I fell asleep…
