OT week 49! I just saw the cutest three patients, all in their 60’s, and the last one was Korean! I had to talk about kdramas of course, which she watches! She tried to guess my nationality, which no one (not even people of my own nationality) gets right. She thought I was Chinese and because I didn’t put any make-up on today except Etude House’s BB cream (which is amazing, BTW), also thought I was younger than her 35 year old daughter! So, she’s my favorite patient today! Otherwise, we’re going on an overnight trip with a couple other couples to celebrate some milestones tonight. Kids will be staying at home with my cousin. It’s going to be EPIC! No, really, I work with some amazing people who I am lucky enough to call my friends and we not only work hard, but we play hard as well! So, here’s to playing hard tonight! I also had a fun singing with a “garage band” (which I haven’t done in 20 years) last weekend. I might be a regular. A friend just got a stand-up bass and had to show it off. Music is probably what keeps me young.
We watched “The Thieves” (2012) which was a kmovie with everyone and their dog, and apparently the 5th highest grossing movie ever in Korea. Him Hye Soo, Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Yoon-seok, Kim Hae Sook, Lee Jung Jea, Kim Kang Woo and Kim Soo Huyn to name a few. My neighbor’s son just returned from Macau and China, and had been sending us pictures of Macau, which is where this movie is originally set, and it was pretty cool seeing the sights in this. It was good, but there was a part where we were worried we would be seeing more than we bargained for, and my husband said to me if we were going to see two over-the-hill people doing it, we’d have to turn it off! It was pretty funny.
Otherwise, we are still watching “20th Century Boy and Girl” and I’m really enjoying this. It’s adorable. I’m in love with Lee Sang Woo’s voice. He’s a nice baritone when he speaks that resonates and I’m a sucker for that. Otherwise, I’m sure all Korean writers went to Disney movie school because someone’s parent must die when they are young. (I saw Bambi when I was four and have never recovered.)
You know, we tried to watch “Just Between Lovers,” but my daughter was watching it with us and we couldn’t get past the first episode where the building starts falling and you know, that’s kind of traumatic for a 9-year-old who is about to go to bed, who still comes into my room at night because of “bad dreams.” So, this will go on the “to watch when the kids go to bed” list. I think I will like it though. Again, what is it with tragedy setting up every kdrama premise?
And while watching “20th Century…” which is about an actress who meets her idol crush after 20 years and also her real crush/boyfriend after 20 years, setting up their love triangle.
Hubby starts reminiscing about his own high school past:
Hubby: This reminds me about a girl I was obsessed with in high school.
