Son Ye Jin movie marathon

So, when my short 1 week break started, I started watching Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food (for Son Ye Jin & PD Ahn Pan Seok), which led me down the rabbit hole of watching all the SYJ movies I haven't watched so far. I've watched Alone In Love, and it kinda ripped my heart out, so I know she's great and have always loved that she has both the beauty and the acting chops, but I just haven't been keeping up with her activities these few years when she focused on movies. But luckily this means I have material to watch while waiting for new Noona eps haha.

I've watched The Classic and A Moment To Remember before, and decided to watch AMTR again just to bask in my tears LOL. These two are classics that most k-movie fans will probably have watched before so I don't need to add more, except that she was LUMINOUS.

Drama Reviews - Because This Is My First Life (2017)

Because This Is My First Life is a romantic comedy about a writer, Yoon Jiho (Jung Somin) who gets into a contract marriage with Nam Sehee (Lee Minki), as she needs a roof over her head and he needs the rent money for his house loan. Jiho has 2 best friends - Woo Sooji (Esom) who works in a big company and prefers one night stands over a relationship, and Yang Horang (Kim Gaeun) who just dreams to marry her long term boyfriend.

So many people raved over it, so it was one of the few 2017 dramas I decided to watch. Not because I don't want to watch more, but because I simply have no time!

Drama Reviews - Age Of Youth 2 (2017)

The one and only drama I completed during this hols is this precious little gem of a drama! I finished AOY S1 about a month before S2 came out so I was hyped for S2, and luckily wasn't disappointed. Of the 5 housemates last season, our beloved Kang unnie left the house to be a business woman, so we had a new addition in the character Jo Eun. Song Jiwon also took center stage in this story as hers was the last demon left to be uncovered.

December 2017 - Shanghai + Osaka (Part 1)

It's vacation time again after 4 months of school. After our short 6 week mandatory research project, I did my paediatrics posting for 8 weeks which was super exhausting because an average day is 7am-7pm. And then I'm currently doing my psychiatry posting which is a lot more chill. We have a 3 week break before going back to psychiatry so I planned 2 trips - 8 days to Shanghai + Osaka with my family, and another 5 day trip to Vietnam with friends. Also can't believe it's about almost a year to our final MBBS exam! Time flies...I still can remember being a clueless first year. Now a slightly less clueless 4th year.

This will be about my 1st trip to China & Japan. I headed to Shanghai because my brother was heading there for a business trip so my mum and I decided to tag along After 3 days in Shanghai, my mum and I would fly to Osaka to continue the trip. Originally wanted to go to Okinawa but I think you need a car to get around in Okinawa and I haven't driven since passing my driving test 3 years ago! And because I really really wanted to go to Universal Studios Japan.

July 2017 - Switzerland

Annual summer break, annual big holiday! This is 2 months late cos I was lazy and too busy watching dramas!
We chose Switzerland on a whim. I just thought the 1.8k flights to Zurich on SQ were pretty reasonable so I booked it, and didn't expect everything else to be so expensive. Luckily, it was a family trip, so all expenses covered by the ATMs, aka the parents haha. My sister booked the flight a couple of weeks after us due to some scheduling problems, but thankfully, due to wonderful SQ, we got seats all together :) 

Also, all my pictures are unedited/unfiltered, and blogger seems to reduce the quality of pictures which is really annoying, but real life is definitely prettier than whatever we took!
