"Love For A Thousand More" K-Drama Review

"Love For A Thousand More" K-Drama Review


by Violetta




Hello Loveliez!

Long time not seen. Today I wanted to do a little review about the K-Drama "Love For A Thousand More". This drama has 10 episodes with 20 minutes duration each. I really like such kind of dramas, because if I want something for my break of just before going to sleep in the evening, this length and amount of episodes is perfect. Well, but not every short drama has a good story, but to give you a little summary, this one is a really good one.
As often, these sort of dramas are dominated from a certain Entertainment, in this case it is the YG Entertainment. (Not that this is a bad thing)

But before I start, I want to set a little spoiler allert here. If you want my summarized opinion, please scroll down to the end of this post. :-)



 First, a view infos.

My sister and I watched this drama on youtube. Link to the first episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xtmH4b3jTE

  • Genre: Romance / Fantasy
  • No. of Episodes: 10, each around 15 minutes running time
  • aired from 5. December 2016 till 23. December 2016

 Here is a main cast list:

  • Pyo Mi Jo (Hwang Seung Eon) main female role, lives for 1000 years now (is immortal), works as a love concealor
  • Yoo Joon Woo (Kang Seung Yoo from WINNER) main male role, neighbor of Mi Jo, leader of a hip-hop group

  • Yeon Ji (Kim Hee Jung) supporting role, member of the hip-hop group, in love with Joon Woo
  • Hyeong Shik (Kim Jin Woo from WINNER) supporting role, member of the hip-hop group 
  • Jason (Jang Ki Yong) supporting role, knows Mi Jo from a yoga-group where he is the teacher, is immortal as Mi Jo, but doesn´t remember his past and how that happened 😔
 
from left to right: Yoo Joo Woo (Kang Seung Yoo), Hyeong Shik (Kim Jin Woo), Yeon Ji (Kim Hee Jung), Pyo Mi Jo (Hwang Seung Eon), Jason (Jang Ki Yong)


But now, let me begin with the story.
The drama plays in the present. Mi Jo looks like a young women in her 20ies, but actually, she got immortal 1000 years ago. The drama starts with the meeting of a supportgroup which she occured. There are many, well ... let´s say strange people there, talking about their lives and problemes, really open and honest. This group / the meetings within the group is a nice side story, really funny and sad at the same time. (but I don´t want to spoil this to much)
There she said right in the beginning of the story, that she has experienced so many love stories with all different kinds of men, but caused to her immortality, always ended really sad. That´s the reason why she decited to never fall in love again, to not hurt herself and any other person.

The funny thing about this is, that she is working as a love concealor.





Since she isn´t ageing, she moves every 10 years. She already lives at her actual place for some years now. To the beginning of the story, there is a young man called Joon Woo, who moved to the flat above her. since he is the leader of an hip-hop group, it kind of get´s a bit louder in his flat from time to time. 😁 Since she is working from home, she is also annoyed if her neighbor makes to loud noises during day time.
So quickly after Joon Woo moved in, the day came that she had to complain about the noises and they "first" met each other. I just write "first" because, Joon Woo seems to recognize her from somewhere and instantly hugged her.





Since Joon Woo has a personality which is really introverted, this is really unusual, which made his friends and group mates (Yeon Ji and Hyeong Shik) wonder. But because Mi Jo doesn´t seem to know him at all, she reacted really cold and just pushed him away.

Later that evening, Yeon Ji, one of the group members, came to visit Mi Jo, because she want´s to get her help with her relationship with Joon Woo, who she secretly loved. Mi Jo promisses to help her and get her into a romantic relationship with him into one month, if they move away directly after they were getting together, so that she doesn´t have to move again.




So the next day, Mi Jo began with a little investigation about him and followed him around. Beside her first (really bad) impressions from him, she saw the kind and helpful man, who also works in a (just a bit embarassing) part-time job. (Maybe some of you know this blue bear with the harsh face) 😁



On that mission, she also met Hyeong Shik, who acted a bit weird with some highschool students on the street. He gave them money, without no obvious reason. This is stilla misteria for me, even after watching till the last episode (If you know what ths means, please tell me in the comments)







The more she tryed to help Yeon Ji, the more she spend time with him and more and more falled in love with him. He also, after their first meeting acted a bit cold toward her, more and more realized his feelings for her.
Since she has sworn to herself to not fall in love again AND since she has a client she is working for, she tries to ignore her feelings. 😭



But you will recognize soon, that the two have a common past, both of them aren´t realizing this in the beginning. But soon enough, their past will causa alot of trouble and conflicts (mainly with their feelings). 😢


Since Mi Jo is such a beautifu and characterlystrong woma, she also has one or another admirer. Here joins Jason (Jang Ki Yong), the yoga teacher of Mi Jo, who firstly seems to just have a crush on her, but you can see soonthat there is much more behind their relationship then it seems on the first view.





Since I don´t want to spoil you to much, I don´t want to say anything more about the story. :-)

So if you are looking for a supercute drama, which has a short running time, this one would be perfect for you. My sister and I loved it. It is such a cute romance drama and has in comparison with the running time a good amount of depth of the story.

Please tell us if you watched the drama and what your opinion of it was. If you have a good recommendation for us, especially for short dramas, please let us know. We are always looking for some new good dramas to watch.

Thank you for reading. I hope you liked ths review.

Etude House "Dear Darling Water Tint" #3

Etude House "Dear Darling Water Tint" #3

by Rosalie

 

 

 

Hi Lovelies,
ordering overseas still let me feel uncompfortable. Why? Sometimes packages get lost with no one doing anything wrong, you can loose your money...

For the product I want to write about today it was something I really wanted to try for a long time. I ordered it and the packet never arrived. After waiting for some more time now I decided to get it a new try (also with a different colour choosing...) and I finally got this product yeii! <3

It's the "Dear Darling Water Tint" from the korean brand Etude House.


BRAND: ETUDE HOUSE

PRICE: $5.20


TYPE OF PRODUCT: WATER TINT


In Germany I never have heard of something like a water tint but in korea it is pretty popular these day's. Other brands like TonyMoly have some similar product's, too.

The product came in 3 shades, wich is pretty untypical for a Etude Hosue lip product, since they always create reaaaaaly many colours like 3 red's, 5 pink's...
So having only 3 colours to choose from can help but also can make it more difficoult if you couldn't choose wich colour you want but simply wanna try the product because you are curious! :D On my first try I choosed red but this time I ordered the colour #3 orange.





The applicator: similar as from lip gloss products. With this applicator it is pretty easy to put the colour where it belongs to!



The consistency of the product is really liquidy. Like you really have coloured water in this tiny bottle. So for your own sake don't put the open bottle upside down! :D


As the product is equal to water it also is like water when you apply it onto your lips. For me it was a bit tough to controll the liquid from not running away up to my chin. (It's not so bad ahha! But if you try to put real water onto your lips you can feel what I mean. It is and will always be really liquidy!) :D

But after using it for 3 times I become more familiar with it.

The product has a intense smell out of the bottle wich should be like oranges or fruits? I don't really like it, but after the product is dry on your lips you couldn't smell anything so it is ok for me.

Also, the colour looks more pigmented and intensive when it is still  liquid.
As it dries (or you reapply it with a fingertip) the colour dissapear a bit. It is a bit like using water colour's: the colours look much more interestung wet but dry they can loose some intensity. But for this product I really like the final colour. I mean the wet colour would really be heavy, to much for me. So this is a really nice all day colour and I also use it with low make up and it looks really natural but put's a bit of a colour finish to my lip's. 

 



All in all this is a really interesting product and I am really happy that I could use it after a long wait. If you have tried different colours please let me know what you think about them.
Bt to all of you who search for a great new lipproduct I highly recommend this one. It also doesn't makes my lip's dry, wich is always a big plus.  

I hope this review was fun and helpfull for you! ;)

Etude House "Pink Showroom Customizing Palette"

Etude House "Pink Showroom Customizing Palette"

by Rosalie

 


Hi Lovelies,
I love to collect things. Not all things, but all the things I like, why not collecting them?
Yep, that really can be a problem! :D
I also collect eyeshadows, these small containers. As I tried to reorganize my make up desk I realized that I started to build high towers with all these small eyeshadow containers. I searched for something to put all of them in, a palette or something, but all palettes that Etude House had were to small or to big for the number of eyeshadows I had.
And out of nowhere Etude House came out with a new palette, where you can put in your play 101 eyeshadows AND the dear my enamel eyes talk things plus a blusher. Amazing! ok, I don't have a blusher for this size but well, I thought it will be so nice to have all of these things organized in one, to be able to use them together and don't always bring ton's of these small containers.

So I decided to buy this "Pink Show Room Customizing Palette". *__*


BRAND: ETUDE HOUSE

PRIZE: $ 14.40

 


The palette came with a mixing palette, a double side brush and small magnets (that I couldn't find anymore haha, sry! But I don't needed them anyway!)

Here you can see the already filled palette.
The colourfull layer is in holographic optic, I guess because it's the trend these days. I would have prefered an other option, like a uni colored one, but anyways, this makes the palette really interesting.

I haven't used the brush so far because I am afraid to make it dirty (like I am with all brushes and make up things in the beginning! :D ) and I really don't know how I would ever use the mixing palette, but maybe time comes by and I need it! We will see...

In generall, all my eyeshadows are together in this palette, I am so happy! <3





This is the mixing palette...


...and this is the brush.



Now I will show you how you can put out the eyeshadow of the original small container, to put it into the palette.


 I have one enamel eyes talk left, so let me show you with this how it will work...


You need your container of course and a thin needle or a pin. After putting it out, the left overs will look like this.


 Can you see the hole? You have to stick in the needle to push out the eyeshadow.


Just push and it will come out easily.


This eyeshadow is supposed to sit in one of the upper howles. So you can combine your palette new how often you want. Seriously, I think it really was fun to see how well the colors match together.

It really makes it more easy to use the eyeshadows at once. I am so happy that I have bought this palette.

So if you are like me and have loooot's of these small container's I simply recommend you to buy a palette, too, because they are really handy.

Please let me know if you ahve problems with all these small container's, too.

I hope this review was fun and helpfull for you! ;)

ETUDE HOUSE "O-LE-MONG One Shot Sherbet Cleanser"

ETUDE HOUSE "O-LE-MONG One Shot Sherbet Cleanser"

by Rosalie





Hi my Lovelys,
since a few days it is pretty hot here in Germany. It feels like more and more that I am a spring type of person and can't controll my makeup and sweat in summer. (eah, sounds disgusting haha, sry!!)

Anyway, in these hot days it is really important to take good care for your skin. For me it is to clean my skin and remove the makeup nicely.

So I decided I will show you my cleanser that I am using right now. It's the ETUDE HOUSE "O-LE-MONG One Shot Sherbet Cleanser".


  

BRAND: ETUDE HOUSE

VOLUME: 150ml

PRIZE: $14.40


TYPE OF PRODUCT: SHERBET / OIL CLEANSER


I odered this product at the ETUD HOUSE Global store. The product line "O-LE-MONG" has some other product's as well like a foam cleanser.

picture from ETUDE HOSUE about the details


It is pretty much a oil cleanser, you have to apply it onto your dry skin, massage it and then remove it with water.
When you first open the box you can smell a great lemon/grapefruit mix. Really fruity, I like it, not chemical. The design is also really neat, the yellow gives me a feeling from some great citrus fruits and freshness. Also the shape is handy and doesn't take to much space in my bathroom.



When you took the product out of the box it is milky white, but when you massage it in, it turns into something transparent and oily. When you wash it off it turns into transparent white again. 

As you can see the cleanser really does a great job. It has removed everything!! <3


 I think this product is really easy to use and effectice as well. Because you don't have to rubb your face hard, only massage it, it really is a soft cleanser and pretty nice to your skin. After you have removed it there is a bit of this fresh lemony smell left, but only a small bit. My skin feels a bit dry after this product, but I guess this is pretty normal. After cleansing I can apply a nice moisturizer and my skin is well prepared for the next hot summer day yeii! <3


I hope this review was helpfull for you. If you have tried some other products of this line please tell me, I am interested if they work as well as this cleanser do.

BTS nominated for Billboard Music Awards

BTS nominated for Billboard Music Awards

by Rosalie



Hi Lovelies,
I was such a proud ARMY when I heard that BTS are nominated for an american music award. OMG!!! I think this CAN be something amazing and will bring them some attention that they deserver!! OMO, I am so done!

To give you some more details: BTS are nominated on the Billboard Music Awards 2017 in the category "Top Social Artist". (I really don't know if this category is a big thing or not but I guess our kid's should bring this award home to korea haha!!)


To get this award we need to vote for them.
Click for the link!!





The show will be on MAY 21st so untill then we have the chance to do something for them!


I have read that they will also join the award show, so they will be in America, good for the american ARMY's. But even if I am normally not interested in american shows I think we all can do something for the kpop music industry. In my opinion the korean music is often much better than the american or german ones. I´ve showed my mom and her boyfriend some music video's (they are no kpop fan's) but they also said that the albums are made with so much more love and the music videos are full with amazing effect's comparred to american and german ones and they also said that the singer's are really great.






Beside, BTS are the secound korean music group wich is nominated for an american award, first Big Bang was nominated on the MTV Music Awards.

I don't know if anyone read this and don't know BTS? You really should check them out. 



 


 


They make a hip hop -like music, but lately they also did some different kind of music, more soulfully. The ARMY likes it, so do I. 
I guess BTS get most attention with their music video for "I Need You", wich is the beginning of a long range with a big story behind. There are maaaaany descriptions from the fan's but this is really something deep wich isn't solved yet I guess.





I was also proud that they're last album where the lyric's are inspired by german writer Hermann Hesse. 

BTS really isn't some ordinary boygroup, they are special and I wish them the best. So please help getting them the award.

Beside, what do you think about this american attention with this award stuff? Is it good for them or not? Do you want to have a small fandom or a worldwide fandom like BTS might get soon?


HAHA! Some BTS SHIT! I just love them so much! <33

If you wanna hear more about BTS please let me know or if you have some quetsions.
Share the ARMYNESS around and be proud and selfconfident as the kid's are. :D

B.A.P WORLD TOUR PARTY BABY FRANKFURT 05.05.2017 concert diary

B.A.P WORLD TOUR PARTY BABY FRANKFURT concert diary


by Violetta










Hey Loveliez!

What a wonderful day it was, when my sister, my friend and I started early in the morning to go to Frankfurt am Main to visit the B.A.P WORLD TOUR PARTY BABY CONCERT.

Awww it was so early in the morning ... we started 4 am, to be in Frankfurt at 8 am to get a good place in the first row. As in the last year, we "just" got a GENERAL ADMISSION STANDING ticket, which was around 100 €. There were 6 different ticket categories, 4 in the party pit, where you got different extras, from a photo with the members and hand shaking event and also some merch, and 2 categories in the general admission, standing and seated.
Since we wanted to party together with B.A.P, we wanted to stand as near to the stage as possible. *.*




After 4 hours driving, we made it to get really good numbers, as you can see. ^^
The whole numbering was organized by fans, because the event organizer didn´t wanted to organize it. But I personally think this is a really good thing, to prevent people camping infront of the hall and that the people don´t have to stay the whole day just there. (Because you all know there are fans that would do that, me too.)
And here I really want to say thank you to these awesome people, who spend the whole day organizing everythink infront of the hall. You all were always kind and everything was really great time mannaged.




Since we went there by car, it was really easy for us to store our bags and jackets somewhere before the concert. Since we came so early, we didn´t had to pay any parking fees. I saw later, people had to (but I don´t know how much).

As last year, the entering was a bit hectic. The official entering time was 18 pm, but the diamon ticket owners (the ones who could take a photo ith the B.A.P members) were admitted half an hour earlier, because I think they took the picture before the concert (but I don´t kow exactly). That´s why the rest of the audience where admitted a bit later, which first doesn´t sounds so bad, but if you were awake since 3 am in the morning and standing for a view hours in line, your legs are tired and maybe, you want to visit the toilet. So yes, in that moment, half an hour feels like 5 hours. :O
After the gold ticket owners entered, there was a bit chaos which caused that all cathegories left entered at the same time.
Maybe it was the first time, that the security personal ahd to deal with so much different cathegories

But again, the fans were really kind to each other. We also met one girl who gave us some dextrose, packaged super cute with a picture of the members. She was so cute.




That´s the thing I like about kpop fans, they also care about each other and know what it means, to get the chance to see ones idols maybe just one time only in life.

They also offered merch in front of the hall. This year it was less chaotic than last year. You could also buy some concert bracelets (fan organized) and light sticks, but the latter jut with preordering. As you may know (if you also read the concert diaries from last year) I already had my lightstick. Rosalie bought her beforehand on Daebak (click for the link), a german online store for kpop merch and such stuff.




Comming to the concert itselfe, it was  A M A Z I N G !!!!!!

The concert hall itselfe has a really good size. it was more wide than long, means everyone was standing quite nead to the stage, which was really broad itselfe. So I think the view was good even from the rear standing areas. The seating area was on a platform, so that they also had a really good view I suppose.

Himchan Instagram update #GERMANY


Since the motto was "PARTY BABY", they chose songs that are typical. They also started the concert with kind of an opening act of the DJ "B.SHOO", which was kind of nice, but since he just played american music, it didn´t matched my music taste, but it was ok.

Same as last year, when the boys get on stage, I was flashed how beautiful a human being can be. It´s so unbelieveable.

So the songs all had kind of a "party" feeling, chosen really good in my opinion. The only disadvantage is, that they didn´t came up with songs like "Warrior", "Young, Wild & Free" or "1004 Angel", not even "With You". That was a bit sad, but they did songs like "Hurricane", "No Mercy" and "Feel So Good", also some of their latest songs like "Skydive" and "Awake".

They said, they performed "One Shot" only in germany, because of the reaction from last year. (As they said, they didn´t performed it in other countries, but that is really sad, because this one is one of my favourite songs.) 



They also did a bit more special effect on the stage compared to last year. The confetti, smoke and lights gave us a really party like feeling.





During their first talk, they also tryed to speak german. Was so cute. They had a really good pronunciation, if you ask me. Please watch the video above to hear for yourself. *.*

Since I preparred myselfe with some ear plugs, I understood their talk really good. But with this trick, I also heared all the songs much better compared to last year.



B.A.P also planned a special event. Beforehand they announced, that Baby´s should dress up in certain party outfits as the members explained on thei social media. What we didn´t know: One of the members is choosing one Baby out of the audience, to bring her on stage and well ... has a little chat with her. ^^

In germany, it was Zelos part. It was soooo cute, he chose one girl from the party pit area and beside some loveshots on stage, he became her boyfriend. It was so crazy, just as if a fanfiction was comming realty.*.*


cut out from the video Zelo gave to her


Nicole, the girl chosen, stayed really cool and as a present, she got the whole meeting on stage with the members an a video. Zelo said he also was a bit nervous (nervous enough to drop his drink). ^^
In the end, Zelo kindly accompanied her back to the auditorium. So cute. 😍
Since she also is such a beautiful girl, I think she represented the german Baby´s really good. ^^

~~~ such a lucky girl ~~~






All in all, the concert was really amazing, and is also worth it if you can only buy the cheaper tickets as we did. B.A.P made some careful intimations, that they´re coming back next year, but that´s not set yet. I personally really hope so, because this concert was one of the best evenings in my live. (The other one was the concert last year. ^^) So if B.A.P is coming next year again, I hope there is nothing standing in my way to attend it then.


Thank you for reading. I hope you liked it. If you are interested, please read our concert diary of the B.A.P concert last year (click for the link). If you have any further questions, please ask. We are always happy to chat with you in the comments.
