11 Random Facts About Myself

1. I have 4 dogs: a Scottish terrier, poodle mix, a lhasa apso, poodle mix, a Chihuahua, Yorkshire terrier mix, and a jack Russell terrier.

 2. While watching Kdramas and writing for this blog take up a lot of my time, I do have a full time job that steals me away from Kdramas. I was just promoted, and it is stressing me out. I will continue to use Kdramas as a therapeutic tool.

3.  I love Korean cars. My first car after I graduated from high school in 2007 was an ‘07 Hyundai Elantra. I just upgraded to a 2013 Elantra Limited. It’s red, has heated seats, leather interior, sunroof, navigation system, basically it’s my dream car.

4.  I live in a small, redneck-infested town not far from Portland, OR. I have lived here since I was 8 because I moved back in with my parents to save money. At this juncture, I don’t really have any plans to move out. In fact, I started a rose garden in my parents’ yard.

5. I used to be an American TV addict before I started watching Korean shows. Some of my favorites include: One Tree Hill, BH 90210, Gossip Girl, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Revenge, The Real World, Friends, Seinfeld, etc. there are too many to list them all.

6. I LOVE Kpop right now. A side effect of my Kdrama addiction is a less severe Kpop obsession. SHINee is my favorite. I get that they are all really flamboyant young boys, and it’s a bit weird. I can’t help but love the music and choreography, though.

7. This summer I am all about “billowy” tops. Any time I am out shopping with my gay BFF, I always get really excited when I find a flowing shirt, especially if it’s colorful.

8. I went tanning in a tanning bed twice because I wanted to try it once before I die. It was awful. The bed had a weird chemical smell, and I was burnt for days.

9.  I love Lavender and rose plants. I have a garden with 6 different types of Lavender and 8 different colors and varying types of roses. They look beautiful and smell great.

10. My fuel is Red Bull. I know it is probably killing me, but when I drink a 20 oz, you wouldn’t believe how many episodes I can watch in a row!

11. I have 3 tattoos: a unicorn on my left calf, a cockatiel on my right calf, and quotation marks on my feet. I want to get my unicorn colored in someday, and I want to add more to my feet tattoos.

Questions from Kenyaq

1. Why have you chosen to blog?
I had so many feels from watch Korean dramas that I needed to get them out somehow. It’s my therapy J

Watching TV and/or shopping. Watching TV and shopping at the same time refers to shopping online, of course.

Seoul would be amazing, but I’ve been wanting to go travel around the Mediterranean countries for a long time.

4. What's your fondest memory?
Hmmmm… I remember my childhood fondly overall. There were times when things were difficult, but I love my family and we are a pretty close group of people compared to some families, I think.

5. How do you express yourself apart from blogging?
I guess through my garden. It’s so relaxing, but it requires physical work so I have to put myself into it and concentrate.

6. What type of music do you listen to?
Kpop and American pop music. I also like some Indie music too. The Kooks are my favorite band.

7. What's your ideal date?
First we would go to dinner at a fancy restaurant and I would order filet mignon and lobster with a vintage wine pairing. After that he would take me to pick out a Fendi purse… wait, am I gold digger all of the sudden? Probably.

8.  Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Moved out of my parents’ house, at least half of my student loans paid off, and I will have a white Scottish terrier.

Purple. I’m not really sure why I would be that color, but I just love purple.

10. Do you believe in global warming?
Yeah, it seems legit to me.

11.   If someone gave you a box with a push button in it and pushed it, you would receive 10 million dollars for FREE but the catch is that once you pushed that button, someone somewhere in the world you don't know would die. Would you push that button to receive 10 million dollars...why or why not? Not judging you haha...
I’m going to be honest, I wouldn't push it. I love money, but I wouldn't feel happy to have all of that money and know that someone died because of me.

Questions from KDramaGuk

1. You are the director and I am a producer with money to throw at your dream project. Pitch me a kdrama scenario with your fantasy kdrama cast, sky’s the limit: lead actor, lead actress, supporting actor and actress, and two peripheral castmembers.

2. If you could substitute yourself as the heroine/hero of any drama, who would you replace?
I would totes be Yoo In Na as Choi Hee Jin in Queen In Hyun’s Man. Wouldn't it be cool to meet a hot guy who time traveled because it was destiny for you two to meet? Also, he sold an ancient sword to buy her a car and those two are an amazing couple outside of the drama. I’m jelly.

3. Where would you like to go on vacation (besides South Korea) and why?
Vegas because I love the big drinks, LA because I love the beaches in SoCal, Puerto Rico because it looks like paradise, and I would love to go to Italy to eat a ton of Italian food.

4. When you aren't watching kdramas, what are you up to?
Mostly working. I take escalated tech support calls and do other boring cell phone provisioning junk. Other than that, I lay in bed with my puppies, work in my garden, or hang out at Target with Warren.

5. What is your favorite movie (doesn't have to be K-related)?

That’s a hard one. I love movies. I took a few movie courses in college, but my favorites aren't weird or artsy. I love Bridget Jones’ Diary, A Knight’s Tale, Pride and Prejudice, and Rear Window.


  1. Hahahaha I love your answer to the ideal date!! And I just realized how ridiculous my questions are hahaha

    1. I had fun answering them. I've never been asked if I would rather have a million dollars or let someone die before lol
