It’s really awesome that every winner of the DramaFever awards managed to send a message through video to their fans, and a lot more came in person to pick up the awards! George Hu and Arden Cho did a great job hosting, although I feel that Arden was more on point with the hosting duties than he was. That’s not to say that their jokes and overly-forced flirting was not amusing. Poor Arden, George Hu was just not up to doing the Pinocchio toast kiss!
The 3rd Annual DramaFever Awards was such a BLAST! It was really fun seeing the stars arrive on the red carpet and then watching them live on stage. I was sitting near the back of the orchestra level so I still had a great view of the stage, and felt so close to the stars. I could have sworn Lee Tae Hwan was looking at me!
It’s a new year, and a new awards season! Okay, I have to admit I haven’t really been following the Academy Awards/Golden Globes/SAG awards in the States, though I hear about snubs and lucky nominees. (The Lego Movie – how could thou be snubt!?) In any case, it’s a busy time for dramas too! And I’m happy to say that I’m attending the DramaFever Awards again!
There are two Asian Americans in this film! Aaaand that’s all that really ties this movie to my blog. Mwahaha.
I really looked forward to this film. I really really did. I’m an OK fan of “300” (I always watch it in parts, never fully) and I did like “Watchmen” (still prefer the graphic novel but it was a decent movie), so I was looking forward to “Sucker Punch.” Plus – I definitely like stylized films.
But again, as I said, I looked forward to the film. That doesn’t mean it was good.
Happy Lunar New Year! 新年快乐，恭禧发财! (My inner China Girl just came out right there…)
Anyways! Who’s got more resolutions?! On January 1, I made the resolution the live it up more and have fun, but on February 3 I’m making the resolution to work hard and watch more dramas! (The second resolution sounds contradictory, but actually it’s not :P) So here’s to catching up on My Princess and watching oldies but goodies that I missed.
Also – it’s the Year of the Rabbit, and to celebrate it, DramaFever is holding another contest. They had a Secret Garden one that I didn’t get to win (boo) but I tweeted for this one. T-shirt looks mighty cute! And I looooooooove bunnies! Details are here.
OK – the Secret Garden furor isn’t really dying down. I don’t think even My Princess can take over it, even though it’s popular in its own right. Reminds me of You’re Beautiful, when I was stuck on that drama for months after it ended…
[No spoilers on Secret Garden please. Though I spoiled myself silly with the dramabeans recap (dumb, dumb, dumb move) I will refuse to talk about it until I’ve actually seen the ep myself.]
Until then… DramaFever has created a new contest – Tweet or Facebook your love of Secret Garden to enter to win an originally-designed T-shirt with chibi Kim Joo Won and Gil Ra Im.
I don’t care if you believe in Santa Claus or not – but CHRISTMAS IS AROUND THE CORNER!
There isn’t much that Harry Potter has to do with Christmas, but there is a reason why I put Harry Potter up there – “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” opened this past weekend in South Korea and soared to the top of the box office list, beating Lee Seon Gyun and Choi Kang Hee‘s “My Petty Love Affair” (which climbed from third place to second place), and Gong Yoo‘s “Finding Mr. Destiny.” Though I feel a teensy bit sad that Gong Yoo is at third place, the keyword is teensy.
