This was really cute. I won’t say too much because of spoilers but the scene where the 3 of them are together and get their sonic screwdrivers out was what prompted him to run and get his one. He got really immersed in it!
So who watched it?
Korean movies and dramas
It’s so bad it’s good! In a Boys over Flowers way. Of course my husband has no interest in this drama so I could enjoy it without his criticism while he was away.
I actually think the subplots are more interesting than the main plot and would like to see more of that. I won’t say too much else in case others are planning on watching it and haven’t yet.
I actually changed the pacing of this one because he really wanted to be a zombie at the end.
We’ve been having some bad bushfires in Australia (I hope anyone near them is okay!) so there has been a lot of smoke over Sydney. It was pretty creepy looking at night, especially with the full moon.
“Take a sickie”, “Chuck a sickie”, “Throw a sickie” is Australian slang for pretending to be sick and not going to work but still getting paid. My husband used to be a hard worker until he was corrupted by the Australian workplace! He saw how much other people take sickies when they just want a day off and started questioning why he was working so hard.
He loves shows like the X Factor and there is a Korean girl this time so he’s been following it. But because he works at nights he will be missing a lot of it. He can just catch up later though. I’m not letting him stay home from work just so he can watch the X Factor!
So I’m enjoying it. Even with the overacting, Lee Min-ho’s curly hair and that weird thing she does with her mouth.
I haven’t watched a Korean drama in a while because I know when I do I end up wasting so much time. My husband doesn’t like these types of dramas and if he watches a drama it’s usually a serious one.
But yes, I am enjoying it. I can see why this one is so popular.
This is what happens when you are on Tumblr late at night and then go straight to bed! You are bombarded with all these images from different fandoms one after the other. The things you love can cross weirdly. That’s what my brain decided last night… and I still think that would be really cool. Maybe one day The Doctor will be an androgynous Korean boy. I’d watch the hell out of that.
So, Doctor Who fans… what do you think of the next Doctor? Did you watch the reveal? It was on at 4am here so I just waited until I woke up… and which is why at about the time it was being revealed I was dreaming that it was GD.
I think the next Doctor might be a bit more scary? Or maybe I just think that because Peter Capaldi’s expressions scare me sometimes. I’ll have to wait and see!
This is how many of our arguments end these days. Our arguments are very minor, just about stupid stuff, but the person who first gets in “You know nothing Jon Snow!” usually wins.
That’s a Game of Thrones reference for those that don’t know. I think I’ve used up all my Game of Thrones ideas for comics…
Mr Gwon isn’t really a hoarder. We have no space at all so if he was there would be major problems. And we’d have some big problems in our relationship too. The times when I ask him to throw something out and he doesn’t do it is because of laziness, not because he can’t let go of some rubbish.
Anyway, apparently he thought “hoarder” and “hodor” were enough alike to make a joke.
This is our video of our Supanova experience! We didn’t have much time as my husband had to work that night and my brother was only in Sydney for the day. It was really crowded inside, even more so because people couldn’t hang around outside as much due to the rain. I’d really like to see it in a bigger venue next year (though we are unlikely to go as we’ll be in Korea).
We really liked seeing the Game of Thrones costumes. My other favourite was the Futurama ones. It’s always cool seeing the effort people go to.
It would be nice to see more areas for people to sit and talk to others. People are forced to sit on cold cement up on the second level walkway. Also an area for children is needed as well I think, there seems to be more children every year and it would make it easier for them and their parents if they were catered for too.
Overall it’s still a really cool experience and we enjoyed it, even though we were functioning on only 4 hours sleep.
We have almost finished watching Game of Thrones. We’ll be done in a few days, it’s just difficult to find time to watch while my husband is working, but soon!
So yes, I caught him pretending to be a Dothraki warrior in the bathroom. For those that don’t watch Game of Thrones, he was pretending to be like this:
It’s funny though, Jason Momoa who played Khal Drogo is someone I’ve been a fan of for a long time. I used to be a big Stargate Atlantis fan, which he was in. Now my husband wants to look like him. I told him if keeps working out at the gym I’ll make him a Dothraki costume sometime.
Speaking of costumes: if anyone going to Sydney Supanova Pop Culture Expo next weekend?
No spoilers! We haven’t caught up yet. But we probably will because my husband has a few days off so we are going to stay with my parents in my home town. We’ll have lots of time then.
Now because we are going to be at my childhood home and it’s much bigger than where we live in Sydney, we are going to make some cooking videos while there. So please give us some suggestions of what you’d like to see us attempt to cook!
We are only at the second season so no major spoilers please! We should catch up soon though.
South Korea is quite conservative and there is more censorship, but Koreans have the fastest internet in the world… they just go download the things they want to watch anyway. I’ve been meaning to watch Game of Thrones for a while but it wasn’t until some Korean friends recommended it to my husband that we actually started. It’s better to watch it now with Korean subtitles so he can understand everything.
But yes, in my husband’s words, “HBO shows EVERYTHING”. Many times I feel like I should cover his eyes to protect his innocent mind.
Sorry… if you don’t watch the TV show Arrested Development you may not understand this one!
It’s very nice of him to go along with our practical joke. If you watch Arrested Development (it was cancelled years ago but now there are new episodes) you know why we got him to do this.
I finished a drama the other day and yet again was disappointed with the ending. Why aren’t things properly resolved??? I think it’s no surprise that my favourite dramas are usually the ones that resolve everything at the end and tie up all the loose threads. Too many just don’t though. There may literally be 5 hours footage of the guy and girl staring at each other in the drama, but apparently there is not enough time to resolve everything?
If you haven’t watched a Korean drama before, please don’t think they are so bad. They aren’t all like that. There are some really great ones and there are lots of good points about them, just too many end in a really an unsatisfying way. (I put this comic up on Tumblr first and saw some interesting theories about Korean dramas being allegories for Korea and the hardships Korea has faced).
Also, unlike TV dramas in Western countries, Korean dramas tend to be about 20 (long) episodes and then just finishes forever, unlike ongoing dramas in other countries that have many seasons, so the story and episode structure is very different in Korean dramas.
