I can't live without music so when my Creative MP3 player gave up on me after 5 years of service I was really sad. It was a high school graduation gift from my aunt. When I graduated college last year, I kept nagging my mom to buy me an another music player. She didn't give the okay signal back then but early this year she finally gave in. =D 

The name Creative faded already. My old mp3 player really looked messy. Hahha!

Messy...Especially the back side. I lost the battery cover.

I chose Apple's iPod Touch because I love its features like you can use it as a music player, watch videos, put lots of application (with different functions!) and of course it is Wi-Fi ready. Sadly, I didn't foresee that I'll be putting a lot of videos from my Korean entertainment addiction so I already had to delete some of my applications. Yes, I bought the 8 GB one because I really don't want to burden my mom even more for a more expensive gadget but really I'm regretting it now. Haha! I really don't mind having little applications in my iPod Touch because the main reason why I bought this is because I want to listen to MUSIC everywhere I am. =) 

When you take videos using the iPod Touch, it really has a great quality. I took a video during Super Junior's 2nd concert here in the Philippines and the video and sound quality was really good. Too bad I didn't know how to zoom in so the artists were like ants in my video. =D You guys know how? Please do tell me how to zoom in while taking a video. =D I really don't have the knack to thoroughly explore things. Haha!

My favorite application would be the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Do I sound so geeky? No? Okay then. =D Since I also read books and watch Korean series some of the English subs gives you nosebleed especially in historical dramas that uses really deep and ancient words (For instance, I was watching this historical drama called Chuno. The English sub says "harebrained tomfoolery". I don't know those words! =D), I easily just typed in the words and voila! =D My other apps include CNN and BBC World News. =D These three apps will surely not be deleted...oh VLC app too. 

My new baby with Kim Heechul of Super Junior. Hahah!
Piece of advise. If you are going to buy an iTouch make sure to buy a 32GB memory or higher. Why did you choose your current music player? =) If you own an Apple gadget, what is your fave application? =)

I was addicted to this Korean historical drama, Chuno/The Slave Hunters. The root of this addiction is Lee Jong Hyuk. He is a Korean actor known for either the other guy or being an antagonist in a drama. He is not the super handsome boy next door type. I just love his charisma in playing those roles. I became his fan after watching Formidable Rivals/Powerful Opponents in KBS World. Lee Jong Hyuk plays as the assassin, Hwang Chul Woong, in Chuno who was enslaved by his ambitions.

Lee Jong Hyuk as Hwang Chul Woong

EDIT: I'm so happy!! There's this Twitter fan account of LEE JONG HYUK (@LeeJongHyuk_fan) and he tweeted back!!!! He said 감사합니당^^ or Thank You in English! Waaaa!!! ♥

Now the Chuno addiction. I never really blogged about Kdramas in my personal blog but this one is an exception because I just super love this drama. I regret not watching this drama in its original run on KBS World. I wasn't able to watch the last episode while streaming at dramafans.org because the link was broken ( of all the episodes..grr) and that left me so restless finding for a Chuno DVD. Desperate measures knocks in and I searched on the internet for an orginal DVD but was discouraged because it costs Php 5249!! I searched for a Kdrama seller on the net who downloads them and burns it in a blank CD. That's the best option I had so after 3 days, I got myself a Chuno DVD. =D 

For a bird's eye view of the drama, please visit my other blog Chuno/The Slave Hunters  .

I was left speechless after watching the last episode. JANG HYUK's acting was just AMAZING. He made the character, LEE DAEGIL, soooo memorable. He really deserved all those Daesang awards last year and for those awards that he didn't win screw those award giving bodies because JANG HYUK'S acting was beyond amazing in this drama. Lee Jong Hyuk was an AMAZING antagonist too. Ironic as it sounds I LOVE THE WAY THE DRAMA ENDED. Almost all the characters had closure but I wished General Choi and Wangson was there when Daegil died though. Hwang Chul Woong felt remorse at the end. Taeha and Hyewon will continue to change the world one step at a time. When I think about Chuno/The Slave Hunters, there is only one name that first pops out of my mind and that is LEE DAEGIL. Daegil deserved the "epic hero" ending. He gave up his life saving his only beloved, Eunyeon, and telling her to live with happiness with Song Taeha (super duper ouch!). Real love is unselfish.

I really cried watching the scene of Seolhwa and Daegil in the last part where Daegil was dying. I was a Daegil/Seolhwa shipper at first but realized no one can replace Eunyeon in Daegil's heart. Daegil's treatment to Seolhwa was like a little sister. This line from Daegil made me cry even more.

Daegil (dying): "Seolhwa, I'm sorry. Darkness surrounded me, that's why I couldn't see your heart was beating for me."

Before Daegil died, he asked her to sing him a song but when Seolhwa asked him what song will she sing for him, Daegil stopped talking...........and he died in the arms of Seolhwa. *sob sob sob* =( 

Well at least he didn't die alone and he was with a woman who loved him. Gosh, even typing this one I still feel sad and teary-eyed. Seolhwa loves singing and the actress who plays her, Kim Ha Eun, has a really good trot voice. =) 

Result after watching the ending? PUFFY EYES! Hahha. =))

Quotes from the drama:

"A life of simplicity is a wise man's greatest virtue." - Lee Daegil

"For with great ambitions, come even greater challenges." - Monk  (I forgot the name =D)

Currently, Chuno is my most favorite Kdrama and it is one of the best indeed. Everything about Chuno is great.  The actors down to the supporting one, cinematography (I suggest when you watch this drama view it in the highest possible pixel), fight scenes (hawt! rawr!), and the OST ( I always listen to the OST right now even the instrumental ones!). I will never get tired watching this drama over and over again.
