GOBLIN: A Great and Lonely God 

  1. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (16) - Nam Joo Hyuk, Lee Sung Kyung, Lee Jae Yoon, Kyong So Jin --> sweet, refreshing, and fun to watch the profession of the relationship. I feel that they could have gone one for another 10 epsiodes. It's the first drama to end this year. {12 January 2017} 
  2. Iljimae (20) - Lee Joon Gi, Park Shi Hoo, Han Hyo Joo, Lee Young Ah --> a great historical. I wished I knew which girl he ended up with but the series is very satisfying as it it. I love the dads. I wish all dads are like them. {16 January 2017} 
  3. Goblin: A Lonely and Great God (16) - Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook, Yoo In Na, Yook Sung Jae. A most perfect show. ❤❤❤❤❤. Chemistry of the cast was off scale. So good. Don't miss it. {22 January 2017}  
  4. Romantic Doctor Kim (21) - Han Suk Kyu, Yoo Yeon Seok, Seo Hyuk Jin, Kim Min Jae, Yang Se Jong - Great cast and storyline. Two awesome kiss scenes. Medical drama. ❤❤❤❤ {22 January 2017}
  5. The Legend of the Blue Sea (23) - Lee Min Ho, Jun Ji Hyun, Lee Hee Joon, Shin Won Ho, Sung Dong Il. ❤❤❤❤❤ Great romantic comedy. I laughed so much and cried a little. Wonderful story. {25 January 2017}.

  8. One Percent of Something (16) - Ha Suk Jin, Jun So Min, Kim Hyung Min, Im Do Mon, Kim Sun Hyuk. ❤❤❤❤❤ I love this show. Will watch it again. It's sweet and the characters are lovable. Even the cranky male lead. So unlike MY SHY BOSS. {3 February 2017}
  9. Painter of the Wind (20) - Park Ahin Yang, Bae Soo Bin,  Ryu Seung Ryong, Moon Geun Young, Moon Chae Won. Great story but I like a little more romance to my ending. Same King as Yi San. I've always like that character. {12 February 2017}
  10. 100 Days with Mr Arrogant (1) - Ha Ji Won, Kim Jae Won. Cute story and was happy to watch it. Too bad can't enjoy final case as the scene was spinning and I'm an easiest to sea-sickness. {17 February 2016}
  11. Hwarang (20) - Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Sik, Go Ara, Choi Min Ho, Do Ji Han, Jo Yoon Woo. Awesome series. Favorite scene: soccer game. {21 February 2017}

KDrama: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

I just finished watching this show. I watched it from the very beginning. I'm sad to say goodbye to the characters. They have such great chemistry. I like how they ended it. Great job writers.

South Padre Island in Winter

We went on a winter vacation to the beach. South Padre Island. My husband and I took turns crying as we look at our boys and we were missing Yoel from the group. Despite it being winter, it was a sunny day at 77F. My youngest got sunburned. 

The boys seemed content to just dig and pile sand. They work so hard to build a fort. Chana and my husband talked. The girl didn't want any saltwater on her person. 

There's me taking pictures and getting my long pants wet. I wasn't planning to go to the beach right then, but the sand looked lovely and we just stopped and rolled on it. Except for the girl, of course.
