하자 전담반 제로/Romance Zero

Genre: Comedy/Romance/Drama
Language: Korean

Kim Woo Jin used to be a top matchmaker. However, one of his matches end when the man is discovered to be gay and leaves his bride at the alter!Everything crumbles from there. He gets pushed to a tiny office, and his new employees are the "Zero Team" a.k.a the misfits. Together they join people together, and overcome battles themselves.
However will they themselves ever find love?

Finished this one last night. It's pretty cute. Then again I'm a sucker for Kang-In♥. The characters are funny, especially "Madam Jang" with her crazy voice! Each client was entertaining, but sometimes I found the matchmaker's side plots to be a bit trying. The ending was sufficient, however I didn't like how Woo Jin ended up. He was a pretty tough, logical, cookie the whole show, and then the last 10 minutes he became a sappy romantic, ugh...but I digress...

Try this one out! Funny, and the characters are cute.
You'll be surprised by some of the episodes....
mwahahaha I can just imagine the reaction to a certain episode on a "hobby"....

Alex - My Vintage Romance

I bought this CD for my mother (as a Mother's Day gift)
as she loved Alex in WGM.
it wasn't just for me to listen to...kinda
I ordered it from YesAsia, which was prompt,
and it arrived in good condition.Crazy Fact:
알렉스 used to be a sushi chef from Vancouver, before he debuted in Korea.

Title: My Vintage Romance
Artist: Alex Chu
Genre: Ballad/Jazz
Released: June 13, 2008
Language: Korean
Ah... Ever since I heard him sing on, "We Got Married" I've been a fan of Alex. This album is a great one, his songs just melt together. Smooth, is how I would describe this CD. It describes the songs and his voice perfectly. It's mainly laid-back (lounge-y?), with it's fair share of ballad-esque stuff. Though there is the odd rap song mixed in. Some of the more mellow ones might mush a bit in your brain, but it's good stuff.

Highly recommended.

Here is the MV for 사랑하오 (I Love You)
Follow it to the end, it has an interesting switch.

(I have a few more CD's from this order, so look forward to it :)

Proposal Daisakusen/Operation Love/プロポーズ大作戦

(I'm Back :)
Genre: Romance/Drama
Language: Japanese

Iwase Ken realizes, only too late, that he has feelings for his best friend, Nagasawa Masami. On her wedding day, just as the slideshow starts at their reception, everything freezes! Iwase Ken discovers that the angel, of the church, will give him a chance to go back in time. He can go back to the pictures in the slideshow, and change the endings, so that they are happier. He does his best as he goes through the pictures, from highschool to college.
But can Ken really change the past?

Hmm I liked this one. Didn't love the lead girl, thought she was a little...too needy? However I'm a Yamapi fan. It is rather...drawn out though. However there are some heart-warming moments. The whole idea is at least a little original. The angel is pretty funny too. "Hallelujah Chance!" fuufuufuu....

Last year in Japan, I started to watch the Proposal Daisakusen Special....however I was dead tired (like most nights) and had to go to bed :(. It was a lot tougher without subs too...I later watched the Special back home, it wasn't the best...>_>;
