There are some things i find addictive: the harry potter books, twilight books and now the Queen Seon Deok television series from Korea. As with all things addictive, one can't just get enough of the object of their addiction.  Its a good thing that this is not of the drug kind or i am busted.  I have been spending all of my free time watching QSD series on Youtube. It's just well written, well acted and it helped that the main characters are easy on the eyes.  It tells of the struggles of the first Female ruler of ancient shilla which aspires for the unification of the 3 kingdoms which will later become Korea. Whatever may be the reason that made the program addictive, the personalities are certainly unforgettable.  Yushin who impels Deokman on the road to be taken, Alcheon who protects Deokman, and Bidam who offers solace.  Hayyy...It didnt matter that the story has a tragic ending, i still want to watch it over and over again and relive the conversations.  A lot of wisdom there...
Sageuk or historical dramas are successful in conveying love and affection without the actors having to resort to kissing and physical expressions.  One can feel the longing with just the eyes or the touch of a hand.  Maybe we can learn from that rather than bombarding the primetime with kissing scenes.  But i digress once again..

No regret

Quite shocking to see Kim Nam Gil portraying a gay role. Just proves that he is a multi-faceted actor and not afraid to tackle different roles, even those that are not suited to his matinee status. Regardless, I remain a Bidamholic..Enjoy these video peeps!

Here's the official movie trailer..

Great books on the big screen

There are two movies on the horizon that i would like to watch on the big screen. These are Eclipse of the twilight saga and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, both of which came from bestselling books. Watch these trailers here...

It was just a month ago when i started treatment at Facial Care Center and it seemed there's already a noticeable difference as two person already complimented me saying my skin has improved! Hah...

Of course, I am vain enough to say I am happy. Not deliriously happy, just happy. But I really think that the Garnier whitening toner, Garnier Whitening Facepowder as well as the Maybelline AngelFit Natural Flawless Foundation contributed to my improved facial condition.

I should have taken a before and after photo. Oh well, if my officemates and my Boss says so, it must be true! Anyways, make-up will always help but using the right products will make it more believable!

For hubby

Just recently, i came across this song by One Republic which I like very much to the point that i have been playing this on youtube everyday, in the background of course. It says all the things i wanted to say to you. I know you come home everyday to me and to our children, but I need you to COME HOME...

I am Bidamholic

Yes, I am a Bidamholic.  If  you even recognize the term and you came to this page searching for anything about Bidam then you have found a kindred spirit. 

Why did I became a fan of Kim Nam Gil? I was one of those who used to wonder what people saw in korean actors and actressess.  Now I know that it's primarily because they love the stories that koreans make and specially the characters within those stories.  Of particular interest of mine is Queen Seon Duk shown in GMA7's telenovela series.  Having watched a few episodes in tv, i got hold of the complete dvd set and watched QSD on marathon.  That's when i got hooked on the character Bidam as portrayed by Kim Nam Gil.  I suppose, that credit should be given to Kim Nam Gil for researching and creating a manga like character which viewers can really identify and love regardless of the darker side of his character. Maybe, i just love the fact that he just love to love QSD and his country doesn't matter to him if QSD is not there.  As Mishil said, a truly simple person others would like to trample on.  Other men have grander ideals like those of Yushin who dreams the same dream with QSD that of unifying the 3 kingdoms and as such love to him is secondary to love for country.  With partners like that, you learn to accept that you're second priority. I suppose deep inside, i want to be love as Bidam loved QSD. Hayyyy....

All in all, QSD is a well-prepared korean historical drama. The life of the first woman ruler of Shilla would probably have been as tumultous and as colorful as have been portrayed on film. Kudos to the director and the staff for giving us insight on the culture and traditions of ancient korea as well as introductions to their ancient heroes.  Indeed, I do love QSD and his valiant men Yushin, Alcheon, and Bidam.
