Pride (Hockey + Romance) ^_^

It'll be unusual for a Vancouverite not to be part of the hockey culture. Even though, this has nothing to do with anything about the Canucks, at least I can supply my interest through a
j-dorama about hockey plus romance! Ha...ha...ha And what more can I ask for when it stars with two of the best leading actors!

Enter Takuya who portrays Halu, the over-confident yet suspiciously, fragile hockey player. Yuko whom I loved in "STYLE" plays the innocent and traditional mild-mannered office lady who is still waiting from her boyfriend for the past two years.
At first, both start to be cautious not to fall in love with each other and thus treat their relationship like a game. But what happens when they see that their opposite characteristics can bring out the closeness they have initially avoided? Will Yuko help out Halu believe in true love and will Halu help out Yuko forget her neglected boyfriend?

This recipe brings so many nice childhood memories especially from Christmas in Peru. ^_^
It's just too good to not post it up. Now I'll see when I get the chance to bake some :)

Please Come Back Soon-Ae

I apologize to any readers who might have anticipated anything on any new posts. Because I've been preetty busy with school, work, and some personal problems, I have been inactive on my blog.

Anyways enough about me (ha! bet you guys are already zoning out).

In between my busy and lazy summer days, while I was searching for any fun comedic k-dramas, someone said that "Please Come Back Soon Ae" is hilariously funny.

Warning a few spoilers ahead:

It's preetyy much a korean version of Freaky Friday, lol, except without all the annoying teenage angst.

I've watched the first episode, and I already disliked (detested at first?) the second main in lead character because of the way she steals the main character's husband without any shame. But!It's when the characters' souls switch between their bodies, that it gets interesting because that is when I can somehow foresee that the both female leads will be able to understand each other's situations and why their characters have become the way they were initially.

I'm tooo lazy to re-write in my own words the plot, so I'm borrowing wikipedia's write-up of episode 1.

"Heo Soon-Ae is a 40-year-old homemaker, devoted to her pilot husband Yoon Il-Seok, their son, and Il-Seok's mother who lives with them. But one-day, Soon-Ae finds out her husband has been cheating on her with a 28-year-old flight attendant Han Cho-Eun. The news shocks Soon-Ae and she cannot believe it, but the mistress, Cho-Eun, wants to convince Soon-Ae, because she wants Soon-Ae to divorce Il-Seok so he can finally be with her. So the two get in the car together and drive towards the airport where Il-Seok is due to arrive from his flight; the plan is to show up before Il-Seok together and ask him on the spot who he wants to be with. But their plan turns supernatural when the two get into an accident that has them switched; so Soon-Ae is now trapped in Cho-Eun's body, and vice versa. Since they can't seem to switch back, the two must learn to live in each other's body, as each other, and things get really complicated when the real Cho-Eun's ex-boyfriend, Hyeon-Woo, tries to win Cho-Eun back. "

Basically, Han Cho-Eun is the 28yr old version of Lindsay Lohan. She's preety but a bit self-centered. Soon-Ae, on the other hand, is the kind but hot tempered mom. I'm up to episode 3, and so far I like the character dynamics between the 3 female characters, Soon Ae, Cho-Eun, and the ditzy but loveable friend( or foe?) of Soon Ae.

So anyone loved this series? Got any opinions?
