I Believe In Love ...

Ever watched something and felt good watching it ? I did. It took me some time to complete the full episodes but I'm glad I did. It is a family drama and something I  think everyone should watch. It's a loss that we don't have such quality in our local programmes.
I Believe In Love (사랑을 믿어요 ) is a drama about Mr Kim & his family goin thru the trials and tribulations they face in order to create a warm and happy family. A very heartwarming family drama, that suited my taste very well lately. The writer is very good to capture simple thing in life and then translate ‘em into an acttractive story. It was delightful to see how much Mr Kim adores his wife and how they advice their children and family about life....
My favourite character (besides Ujin & Yunhui) is the grandma...she rockz !
If you are a fan of Korean drama and if you have plenty of patience - do watch this 62 episodes serial.
Till blessed !

When times get tough,
And life seems rough,
Don't you ever think you were born to die,
But know that you were born to survive,
Don't give up,
Because you haven't been defeated until you stop trying,
And it doesn't matter how many times you fall,
But how many times you get back up.

God gives every woman that special strength inside.
To survive,
And to get on with life.

Dedicated to every woman who had, is, and will suffer from breast cancer.

The Korean Affair - Part 4

26th September 2012

Techinal tour.

1) Jeonju Hanok Village

Jeonju Hanok Village is located in the city of Jeonju and overlaps Pungnam-dong and Gyo-dong. There are over 800 traditional Korean 'hanok' houses. While the rest of city has been industrialized, Hanok Maeul retains its historical charms and traditions. Jeonju Hanok village is especially beautiful for its roof curves. The roof edges being slightly raised to the sky is unique. Hanok houses are generally divided into two sections, Anchae and Sarangchae. Anchae is also known as Gyusu room, and is furnished accordingly. Sarangchae is where the men dwell, and is referred to as the Seonbi room. Because men and women have to remain separate, Anchae is situated deep inside the house so that it is secretive and quiet.

Omokdae Pavilion

 Standing high on a hill in the Jeonju Hanok Village, Omokdae Pavilion is where Yi Seong-gye (1335-1408, founder of the Joseon Dynasty) held an important banquet after defeating the Japanese army on Hwangsan Mountain (Namwon) in 1380. Past the Jeonju Gallery of Traditional Crafts and to the right, you’ll find a wooden staircase leading up to the pavilion and its scenic view of the Hanok Village.

2) Gyeonggijeon Shrine
Gyeonggijeon Shrine (“gyeonggijeon” meaning “a royal palace built in a place of joy”) was built in 1410 to house the portrait of King Taejo, who founded the Joseon Dynasty in 1392. Boasting treasures both inside and out, the shrine yard is full of old trees and a bamboo grove. Inside are the Royal Portrait Museum showing portraits of the kings of Joseon and the Jeonju Historical Archives with exhibits of historical manuscripts.

learning about hanbok
Hanbok (South Korea) or Chosŏn-ot (North Korea) is the traditional Korean dress. It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means "Korean clothing", hanbok today often refers specifically to hanbok of Joseon Dynasty and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. The modern hanbok does not exactly follow the actual style as worn in Joseon dynasty since it went through some major changes during the 20th century for practical reasons (Source: Wikipedia)
psssttt...a modern / fusion hanbok...(perhaps can design one for myself soon) **wink**
