Romance is a bonus book

I tried to fill in my time, after finishing my work schedule with a movie. As you know from my past postings, I am a Korean drama fan. I found the movie Romance is a bonus book and decided to give it a try.

I often tend to doze out at movies, especially with the new morning schedule. To my surprise, this movie kept me awake and curious about the next episode. 

I was delighted by the story of Eun-Ho and Dan-I, and I have to admit, watching this movie felt like reading a good book. 

Dan-I’s sad story and her challenges in life were thrilling. It was amazing to watch the history of a former copywriter trying to search for a job nowadays.

Usually, movies depict reality differently, trying to bring only the positives and unexpected outcomes for the movie characters, adding supernatural powers and God knows what sprinkles.

It’s nice when a movie gives you the power to relate, to feel the pain of having to find a good job and being rejected for various reasons. I loved the small details, even Dan-I’s broken shoe had it’s perfect place in the story.

I also liked how Eun-Ho stood by Dan-I, and assisted her on the up’s and down’s of her career; first as a friend, then as a lover. How she stepped up from an assistant, performing menial work to arriving in the Marketing Team.

The idea of starting from scratch, having nothing to begin apart from talent and faith that it will work out until the end, is stunning. In my opinion, this is how life works and you need to work hard to achieve success.

Some of the quotes from Romance is a Bonus Book:

“Two people who have spend a long time together do not need words to express their feelings.”

“We are like books. We wait for someone to find us and open us to see what’s inside.”

“Some relationships are like gifts.”

“I feared my good days are over and I couldn’t run anymore but I can run again.”

“When the world changes drastically, people’s diligence keeps it up. All I have to do is put on ointment when she falls.”

“We are trees that branch out in solitude and bear fruits. We are beautiful trees with growth rings of our lives.”

 “Opening a new book is like opening a room full of my favorite things.”

“Everyone has their own tunnel to pass.” 

“Telling someone how you feel is as hard as translating an ancient document.”

“Sharing a moment  with someone is precious because it can lead to other possibilities.”

 “A book that inspired others may not always inspire you, so find a book that does.”

“Did you get dumped because you’re a workaholic? Or have you become workaholic because you got dumped?” 

“In life, we face many hurdles. We use each others love to jump over them.”

“Keeping a promise is rare like a star in darkness that is meant to shine.”

 “Passion spreads like the warmth of a fire spreads. It becomes comfort, hope, and happiness.”

 ”I opened up an old book of mine again. It was good when I first read the book but when I read it for the second and third time, this book made me underline the sentences over and over again. I find new sentences in this book everyday. It’s a book that stayed with me the longest. ” 

“Let’s fold the corner of this page for now. We’ll leave the page marked and open the book whenever you want to.”

Korean crush

Watching Korean dramas got me addicted lately, and I stumble from one Korean movie to another. After watching so many movies with the actor Gong Yoo I arrived at one clear conclusion. I have a crush 🤫😪.

Yes, I know, this should not happen. I mean the actor I have a crush on is in his 40’s smashing his movie career. But what can I do? It’s not like you can control your feelings.

And I thought to myself, Kate, this can be treated 😂. So, here I go, trying to check other movies, still Korean, of course (can’t give up at my passion for Korean movies either), but changing the actors and the frame completely.

It took me two weeks to completely start and finish the movie: The heirs.

A cute movie overall, but my mind was still with Gong Yoo. Don’t get me wrong, the actors in this movie were good and played their role amazing. But I guess it’s not easy to get over your first Korean Movie Crush.

So, Gong Yoo, if you ever read this post (like this is ever going to happen), please don’t hate me. I could not control it. 

How do you deal with your movie crushes, dear bloggers? Any treatments? 😅

New Korean Drama

It’s been a while since I have not posted anything in regards to Korean Dramas. Mostly, because I did not have time for watching any, and limited to one or a maximum of 2 episodes per night.

I finished the Goblin, as you know from my previous posts 😄😁 and considered starting a new Korean series, the Coffee Prince. I believe that Gong Yoo is a very good actor and wanted to try another Korean Drama with him in the main role.

Coffee Prince

The Coffee Prince is a 2007 Korean Drama that surprises an irresponsible bachelor that pretends to be gay so he can avoid blind dates arranged by his grandma. He hires Eun-chan to be his lover, not knowing that she is a female.

I managed to arrive at episode 5 yesterday and I am continuing to enjoy the series over a cup of hot lemon tea. I like how a movie keeps you trapped in its story with its cute and funny feelings.

Korean Series – New update

Hello, dear readers! So, today I wanted to update the list of the Korean Series that I have watched lately. On my list I managed to add Cinderella and Four Knights as a Korean Series.

The show is not so new, as the first episode took place on August 12, 2016 and the last one on October 1, 2016.

Cinderella and Four Knights

Cinderella and the Four Knights is a Korean TV Show that involves a young girl living with her cruel stepmother and stepsister which is hired by an old man to look after 3 rich young men.

Eun Ha-Won (Park So-Dam) is a student in the third grade of high school. She wants to became a teacher, following on her mothers footsteps, which unfortunately died in a car accident.

Ha Won is working really hard to raise money in order to pay for the storage of her mother’s ashes at the cemetery but also in order to get her to a good university, hoping to pay her tuition fees.

Ha Won is a great person with amazing skills and personality but she is always unhappy due to the things that happen at home. She is always being mistreated by her stepmother and stepsister who try everything in their powers to make Ha Won’s life bitter and sad.

On the other side, the rich young mans Ji-Woon (Jung Il-Woo), Hyun-Min (Ahn Jae-Hyeon) and Seo-Woo (Lee Jung-Shin) are trying to live together in a mansion called Sky House raising above their different personalities.

Cinderella and the four knights meet together at a wedding ceremony when the grandfather of the young boys (Kim Yong-Geon) asked all four of them to be present for the special moment. At that moment, the grandfather of the boys decides to hire Ha Won due to her special skills as a live-in butler in order to take care of them.

Cinderella and Four Knights is a Korean drama full of twists, funny moments, hatred and love. Hope you will enjoy the K-drama!
