You’re Beautiful DVD + Poster

Posted on 14 February 2010 by Flisha

So you want the original copy of the Korean drama You’re Beautiful?

If you’re in the Philippines, it will set you back USD12 or about PHP600. Not bad, especially since it comes with a free poster (add USD10 if you want it in a tube and not folded up) and a membership to the ANJell Fan Club.

You can order the DVD from this site, and the instructions in English are here.

Tubes are only available until Feb 18.

P.S. Watch some behind the scenes clips of You’re Beautiful below.

P.P.S. Watch Park Shin Hye’s commercial for Etude House, with Lee Min Ho of Boys Over Flowers. Cute! LOL. But cuter if it had been Jang Geun Suk. :D

Online Streaming Shining Inheritance Episodes

Posted on 08 February 2010 by Flisha

Shining Inheritance is a Korean drama filmed in 2009. It is also known as 찬란한 유산 or Brilliant Legacy.

It stars Han Hyo Joo as Ko Eun-seong, the rich girl turned pauper overnight; Lee Seung Ki as Seon Woo-hwan, the arrogant heir to the Beef Soup empire he loathes; Moon Chae-won as Yoo Seung-mi, Eun-seong’s step sister who wants to marry Hwan; and Bae Soo-bin as Park Joon-se, Hwan’s cousin who secretly loves Eun-seong.

Shining Inheritance / Brilliant Legacy

This drama rated highly in Korea, even besting Boys Over Flowers, which interested me enough to watch it. Currently, I am still downloading the first few episodes, so I will be posting short summaries over the next few days. :) So far, though, I’m quite surprised it rated so highly. It’s quite the drama – death, family, money, pride and honor – all kinds of hardships – it is actually very like a Filipino telenovela, in my opinion. So I am not loving it all that much as I prefer to be entertained by laughing not by being burdened by other people’s problems, even if fictitious.

Still, I’ve started, so I will finish this drama. I hope Shining Inheritance will lighten up in the next few eps. :(

If you are in the United States or Canada, you can watch online streaming Shining Inheritance episodes via DramaFever (link). Otherwise, you can view the episodes via MySoju (link).

You’re Handsome [Korean Drama]

Posted on 05 February 2010 by Flisha

Yes, I am still talking about You’re Beautiful, also known as 미남이시네요 / Minami Shineyo, soon to be broadcasting here in the Philippines. But since I don’t have a TV set, I went ahead and watched it online. I prefer watching the Korean dramas undubbed, anyway. It preserves the original feel of the series.

Anyway, I found more Minami Shineyo photos and I just wanted to share, because I still can’t forget them, so I’m dumping everything I find back to you. Hahaha!

You’re Beautiful [Korean Drama]

Posted on 05 February 2010 by Flisha

Also known as You’re Handsome or 미남이시네요 / Minami Shineyo, the Korean drama You’re Beautiful is a fangirl must-see. :) The plot is predictable, but there is no shortage of cuteness or laugh-out-loud moments in this dramedy, so I give it my two thumbs up! :) I laughed and cried all the way, perhaps even spurred on by the theme songs both beautiful and heartbreaking.

Don’t be fooled by the poster. This isn’t a fantasy-themed drama. It’s about a nun (Go Minyu) who is forced to impersonate her twin brother (Go Minam) in a boyband (A. N. Jell) because the brother is recovering from surgery. She looks and sings exactly like her brother, but her demeanor is very girlish and innocent, which makes the other boys wary and suspicious of her. The leader of the A. N. Jell (Tae Kyung) finds her out, but she begs him to keep her secret. Throughout the course of her stay, she causes lots of trouble for Tae Kyung but at the same time starts to crush on him…

Well, I won’t spoil the rest of the story for you, but you can probably tell how it’s going to end. :) It’s a very light and fun drama, and I watched in on Youtube for two days straight. LOL. And I still rewatch it over and over because I think Tae Kyung (Jang Geun Suk) is too cute, haha. But he should really get some meat on his frame! Still, I love the show because it made me laugh. Really!

Here are some stills to get you excited! :)

And here we have a couple photos of the gorgeous Jang Geun Seuk, err I mean, Tae Kyung. :)

And a cutesy image of the cast of Minami Shineyo. A, Tae Kyung, you kill me with those angry eyes. LOL.

You're Handsome / You're Beautiful Korean Drama

I hear from the online gravepine that ABS-CBN has bought the rights to You’re Beautiful. Will we be seeing Jang Geun Seuk in Manila to promote this drama then? Ooooh, I hope, I hope!!! Hahaha!

Avatar Torrent DVD Screener [Download]

Posted on 05 February 2010 by Flisha

Until yesterday, the best online copy of the blockbuster hit that is Avatar was only a Telesync. Yes I have that copy, but no I did not watch it as the low quality annoyed me. However, I gave it to my friends who badly wanted to watch anyway.

But now the DVD Screener has been leaked, and given that only the Academy Awards voters have been given a copy, it probably came from them. Well, thank you, Oscars! I can finally finish watching Avatar. :)

Download Avatar DVD Screener Leaked from Oscars

It’s a long story, what I went through to watch Avatar. Basically, the movie was cut off before it ended. Because the lazy staff of Mindpro Mall wanted to go home early and their stupid managers had gone home. A fun night out turned ugly and we even had a shouting match with the supervisor the following day.

We got our money back after about 30 minutes of yelling and threatening the incompetent staff at Mindpro. They didn’t want to return the money. Their logic was that well, we should have listened when they asked us to enter the moviehouse before the previous screening ended so that we could have caught the end of the movie! What?! They expected us to watch the movie backwards??? And never explained when we bought the tickets that the movie was going to be cut off?!? Fuck off!!!

*Calming myself*

Ah, sorry for the outburst. It was just a very bad experience for me. In any case, I am never watching a movie there again. Boycott Mindpro, you hear?!

Wanted to watch the movie in Manila again, but ah, nobody wanted to come with me see it in 3D. :-( And most everyone had already watched it. So I’m thankful for the torrent, at least. :-)

Here is the link to download the Avatar DVD Screener. It’s a good copy, trust me. :)

Pasta Spaghetti and Roast Pork Cutlet

Posted on 04 February 2010 by Gim

Did I mention that I love pasta? Yeah, I think my previous posts are a testament to my love for Italian cuisine. Well, this time around, I decided to do the traditional spaghetti. You know, the one’s we Pinoys are soo used to. The one’s that big, fat, happy bee bastardized and marketed as langhap sarap. As much as possible, I don’t ever order pasta from that bee. Anyway, bees are supposed to specialize in making honey, not pasta (just go shoot yourself over some game tables, you silly bee).

Tall glass of shake sold separately

Here’s the recipe:

Pasta

Boil 1/2 kilo of uncooked spaghetti pasta in a caldero of water. Liberally add a spoonfull or more of oil. Add a dash of salt. Boil until it’s cooked, but firm (aldente, I think is the term they use to describe this).

Sauce

Sautee a clove of garlic (finely minced), a bulb of onions (still finely minced), mushrooms (cut in half) and bell pepper (chopped, not minced) in olive oil. Throw in a handful of ground beef. Sautee until brown. Open a sachet (around 200ml) of tomato sauce (or Italian spaghetti sauce) and pour it in. Grate a bar of cheddar cheese and season with salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar and a handful of Italian seasoning. Simmer for 10 minutes. Pour on cooked pasta and serve with grated cheese toppings.

Mouth watering, cholesterol laden, porky-liciousness!

Roast Pork Cutlet

Season raw pork cutlet with salt and pepper, grill until well done. Serve with a side of pasta.

Enjoy!
