사랑하는 빅뱅~~

This week appears to have been the week of weird lunches, most that I really liked, one that I was very o.O about it.

It was also a very standard "Go to work, go to class, do homework, repeat repeat repeat" week, so I don't have much to say about the school week. 

I love chicken and quail eggs (top right) and the soup is potatoes
and some sort of ricecakes that are awesome. LOVE IT

Carbonara pasta for special lunch!

Celebrating payday with some delicious BBQ

Cesca and I have been wanting these
hats that say waygookin on them for a while.
It means foreigner. 

Ok seriously how is this something they can serve
in school?!?!? If my handler hadn't warned
me about the bones, I would have been in trouble.

New flavored sojus that I really want to try. 

On Saturday, I woke up bright and early and met Lauren, Cesca and Ga Hyeon at the clinic near Lauren's house so we could get our medical checks done for our renewal.

wake of MERS

We had to get our temps checked and
wear masks before we got to the clinic.

They have reading glasses for you at the hospital
while you're filling out forms!

The experience went smoothly for me, mostly (the nurse even said I have good blood pressure, huzzah!) but poor Cesca and her difficult to find veins proved a challenge. She didn't look so good when she got her blood taken, but thankfully Ga Hyeon was with us and insisted to a nurse that she be given a place to lie down.  

After a nice lunch and chat with Lauren and Ga Hyeon, I went home and intended to do some cleaning that I normally do on Saturday mornings, but apparently not eating, being hot and getting blood drawn wore me out, so I just took like a 2 hour nap and then got ready to head out again. 

It was our friend Hanh's birthday, so we headed to Itaewon for a night on the town!

Hanh's friend brought a bunch of ring pops for us from Canada

Poor cesca's was broken

Birthday cake drink for the birthday girl!

I saw a bunch of friends I don't normally see, so it was a really great night!

On Sunday, Cesca and I lazed around cause we got home late Saturday and were tired, and then we went to dance class, which we were highly anticipating, because we learned the dance to Bigbang's BANG BANG BANG. 

The dance to this song is energetic but also not excessively complicated, so we actually learned the whole thing.

It was fun and awesome and I can't wait for the real video our studio took to come out!

pretending like we're baller waygookin

we had so much fun

messing around after class 

Of course I spent sunday night winding down and attempting to paint my nails with a new kit I got from Daiso that's supposed to make you have like, gradient nails. I'm not that good at it yet haha

After finally catching up on Penny Dreadful, I also spent a good portion of my weekend starting a drama my co teacher recommended, 사랑하는 은동아 (Saranghaneun Eun Dong-ah). It's a melodrama, which means I've cried a bunch watching it because I get easily emotionally invested, even though the story is predictable. 

The title means "Beloved Eun Dong"
or "My Love Eun Dong"

It's a really intense and beautiful story (of course, with some tropes) about a boy and a girl who meet in 1995 after the boy almost hits the girl with his motorcycle. He feels indebted to her for hurting her, and so he wants to repay her by helping out. They develop a close friendship and start to have young love feelings for each other that they don't quite understand yet, when, suddenly, Eun Dong disappears without a trace. 

Following Eun Dong's dream, the boy, Hyun Soo, attempts to become an actor, because he wants to find Eun Dong. He struggles for 10 years, wondering if Eun Dong was happy and grew up well. After not doing so well in his attempts at stardom, he enters the military to do his mandatory service time and, by chance, happens upon Eun Dong once again. The two rekindle their friendship and it quickly develops into more, when, suddenly and inexplicably, Eun Dong disappears.

Using his raw emotions and heartbreak for his work, Hyun Soo (now named Eun Ho, a name Eun Dong once said she liked), makes it big and becomes a famous actor. Convinced he can love no one else, he sets out to use his fame to find his beloved Eun Dong. 

Eun Ho hires a ghost writer, Jung Eun, to write the autobiography for him and to publish the book, and through audio files and songs, reminisces about the times he shared with Eun Dong, hoping to find her again. 

If you know kdramas, you can guess who Eun Dong is just by the description of the show, but I'm still hooked and can't wait to keep watching. 

That's about it this week!

It's almost July, which means more hot weather, English camp (ugh) and new Bigbang songs( yay!!).

I heard it was a super exciting week in America, and I'm glad we're changing some things for the better. Equality is a long way away, but we're taking steps and that's huge. Fighting!!!

Love and support to all of my beloved friends and family!


AOA had a comeback this week that I really like. It's a good summer song, and the video is cute,  though AOA is a sexy concept group, so there the requisite boob and butt focus... I actually know one of the guys who got to be in the video- he was at my orientation. Small world!
