Secret Garden.

Korean Drama.
Genre: Melodrama, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy.
Starring: Ha Ji-Won, Hyun-Bin, Yoon Sang-Hyun, Kim Sa-Rang, Phillip Lee, Lee Jong-Suk, Yoo In-Na.

The drama tells the story of Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin), an arrogant and eccentric CEO who maintains the image of seeming perfection, and Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won), a poor and humble stuntwoman whose beauty and body are the object of envy amongst top actresses.

To complicate matters further, a strange sequence of events results in them swapping bodies.

My Review:
What am I going to say about this drama? This is one of my favorite Korean Drama! I so love the story, the twist of the story, the cast, everything about it! It's just so awesome! It's not that i'm overreacting or what but it's just so good. And it has the cutest ending among the other drama that I watched. HyuBin is just so adorable I love him to death! He's acting as Kim Joo Won he really did a nice job, I really fell inlove with this one. I'm super kilig!while watching this!Its a must watch! If you want some good drama to see, don't miss Secret Garden it's one of the best. I'm still waiting for the season 2, I hope it has a sequel. I love you Kim Joo Won! <3

Comic book artist Sophie (Zhang Ziyi) is a sweet and carefree girl brimming with creativity. She and her handsome surgeon boyfriend of two years, Jeff (So Ji-sub), are the perfect couple. After his marriage proposal to her in front of her family and all of her friends, Sophie is the happiest person in the world.
One day, Jeff meets a famous movie star, Joanna (Fan Bingbing), during a surgical procedure. Immediately afterwards, he breaks up with Sophie.
Devastated, Sophie takes to bed. She is unable to face anyone, especially her mother who had been planning the wedding. Sophie decides to cover up the break-up, with only her 2 best friends, Lucy (Ruby Lin) and Lily (Yao Chen) knowing the truth. She comes up with a master plan : she will use the remaining two months before the wedding date to do whatever it takes to get Jeff back.
She also plans to publish her many strategies in her new comic book. She wants to show women everywhere how to use a 'scientific' approach to win love back. Sophie's first strategy of "Generosity and Forgiveness" does not go well. At a Halloween party, hosted by Gordon (Peter Ho), a photographer, she drowns her sorrows in alcohol. She stumbles upon a photo of Gordon and Joanna together which immediately gives her the idea of forming an alliance with him. Gordon agrees to become Sophie's partner and her guest for revenge becomes a roller coaster of comedic turns and twists. Together they create a duo filled with surprises and adventures. But there seems more to meet the eye with their relationship.
Will Sophie win her man back? Is revenge all that it's made out to be? Is it madness or is it love? Sometimes love can be found in the most unlikely places.

My Review:
I watched this drama because I saw this in my friend's album and it was one of her favorite so I give it a try. And I'm also wondering what the title means.
It's not my typical genre of a drama, I'm more than in a Romantic Comedy but this one is more in heavy drama though I didn't cry, I feel sad for the main characters who suffered and there situations are really unfortunate. It's a bit slow while i'm watching I mean the story is slow but the cast really act well. And I'm sad with the ending though I know maybe it was the best for them.
I gave this 3 out of 5.

Dream High.

Korean Drama.
Genre: School, Comedy, Romance.
Starring: Kim Soo-Hyun, Bae Suji, TaecYeon, Eun Jung, Wooyoung, IU.

"Dream High" takes place at Kirin High School of Art and follows the lives of students as they aspire to become superstars.

My Review:
At first I was hesitant to watch this, It looks like similar with The God Of Study which is also reaching your dreams of something like that and it didn't entertain me that much. So finally 2 days ago I decided to give it a try and I was so happy I watched it! :D The Story is about reaching your dream no matter what, it was really inspiring and it makes me wonder if what I really wanted to be and what path should I take. The casts are awesome, they really act well and I really like them! I love the 3 guys they are all handsome in there own way, teehee :3 And it's not boring, it actually gave me sleepless night cause I wanted to watch what's gonna happen on the next episode haha! It also has a cute lovestory, I love Jason & Pisuk they're so cute! :D The Soundtrack's are really ear catching, I actually download all and I am trying to learn the dance (trying hard). Overall, it's a must watch If you want to be inspired, enjoy, and entertain. No regrets to this.

Etude House: April Haul.

I had a visit at Etude House SM Fairview Branch awhile ago, and those are the stuff I got. I've been craving for the Miss Tangerine Collection since the day it was released but due to my busy schedule in school I wasn't able to visit them that time.

And since I purchased around 3600+ I had the 2NE1 CD, 2NE1 Calendar and the Sauna Kit for purchasing 2 products from Aqua Cure Line. :)

I will try to post a review about the products.
