Favourite Finds #1 [15 March 2014]

I've been thinking lately of trying out something new, and this is what I happened to think about - something I can hopefully keep up weekly. It'll be a sort of smorgasbord of things I read and find on the Internets. Let me know if you like the idea, and feel free to add your own favourite finds in the comment section below!

Now the problem is where to start!

1. You From Another Star fanart.

For those of you who wanted at least one baby appearance in the drama epilogue, someone with clever photoshopping skills managed to do just do that. [credit: the YFAS FB Fan Page]

2. Those of you watching Emergency Couple might be suffering from a bad case of SLS (second lead syndrome). Jaime of The Drama Noona wrote this little love note to Lee Mil Po who is playing the quite lovely Dr. Gook. And while I do love Choi Jin Hyuk quite a lot, I would actually not mind Jin Hee ending up with Dr. Gook please don't hurt me.

3. The talented and hilariously funny blogging crowd over at The Problem of the Unproblematic have posted yet another hysterical hair post where they discuss the evolution of Lee Hong Ki's hairstyles. I promise you will laugh out loud while reading this one.

4. VIXX is one of the K-Pop groups I absolutely adore! My favourites are well...all of them. I do have a soft spot for Leo's absolutely adorkable interview shyness (because he is definitely not shy while singing). Here is is Leo's "Q&A special" interview from VIXX TV (and yes, it has English subs already embedded ~ thank you VIXX).

5. Sometimes I take a meandering stroll through Youtube and just watch random K-Pop or K-Indie MVs. I found a bunch of really beautiful and excellent ones that I will add to my next K-Indie playlist, but I just have to share this one! It's Kim Yuna (not the ice-skater) of Jaurim, a Korean alternative rock band. The song is titled "Going Home" and it's absolutely gorgeous! Enjoy!

6. If I had to pick a favourite on Running Man, I would have to say Kim Jong Kook, but in reality it's super hard to choose just one. I was looking for the Jong Kook-Kwang Soo pictorial from Cosmo Men to pin, and stumbled across this lovely post. I laugh at the bickering Tiger and Traitorous Giraffe just as much as anyone else, but I also adore their real-life BFF bromance. One of my favourite parts is one of the videos (of his Singapore fanmeet) where the event host asks to touch Jong Kook's biceps ㅋㅋㅋ and Jong Kook, you said you're looking to get married...I'll gladly take you up on that offer!

7. Toheart just released their first single, "Delicious" this week. I thought SHINee's supporting message to Key was hilarious, mostly because Jonghyun seemed extra put out that he hadn't known about the Woohyun-Key sub-unit. (SM actually subbed it, just click on the CC button)

8. G-Dragon's latest Summer G-Market commercials are equal parts sexy and adorable GD. I don't really know how he pulls that sexy-adorable image off. [from BIGBANG Updates]

9. This lovely picture of Song Joong Ki I found today, which turned into the header at the top of the post.

10. And last, but not least, this gorgeous song by Urban Zakapa, "Blind" from their latest album [03]. I could listen to them all day.

I hope you enjoyed this week's favourite finds! For extra favourite finds during the week, feel free to like our Facebook page ^^

  1. Oh! I like it! This format is perfect for new discoveries, as well as a way to keep up with k-entertainment landscape for the busy ones! ^^

  2. I'm so glad! I like it when experiments work out ^^

    Awww! Thank you for including my little article in this post! You're the sweetest! I enjoyed this post! I'll be looking forward to the next one! And I love that Song Joong Ki pic!

  4. My pleasure! Ah Song Joong Ki, that man is definitely one of my all-time favourites! I have already started collecting for the next post o.O

  5. I think this is a great idea!

    Sweet! I think that this will be an awesome weekly addition!

  7. Yay! I am glad you like the idea ^^

  8. Right?! Isn't "Going Home" so lovely?!! I didn't know Jaurim at all until my meandering the other night, which is why I go meandering through Youtube ^^

    Yeah, I didn't watch episodes for a while because I didn't know they subbed them. They seem to be pretty cognizant of their international fans, and I have always loved that they're always vlogging for us. And Leo. He is just lovely in all his adorkable, shy, dramatic on stage-ness.

  9. This is a lovely idea hon <3

  10. I am so glad you like it! I am having fun with it & I like sharing old & recent favourites with everyone. I am also going to try to encourage people to share their favourite finds too ^^

  11. ommo. I loved "Going Home"! I discovered the song at the end of last year. I think this was her first solo project away from the band. Such a wonderful voice and great song.

    I didn't realize VIXX TV had subtitles. I'll have to watch that more often now. It's amazing that when it comes to sports and singing, Leo has such a fierce presence...but in any other aspect of life...he's cute, adorable, quiet, and ... yeah. I love him. Thanks for letting me know they have subs embedded!!!
