5 Kim Soo Hyun Dramas to Watch While Waiting for ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay’ new episodes

You have probably heard of the actor extraordinaire Kim Soo Hyun. If not, then you have seen him in one of his high-rating and award winning dramas such as Dream High, Moon Embracing The Sun, My Love from The Star and The Producers. Because of his high caliber and acting skills, he remains to be the highest paid Korean drama actor in 2020.

He finished his military service in 2019 and appeared as a cameo in IU’s big hit drama Hotel del Luna as the manager of Hotel Blue Moon. He also appeared briefly in the 2020 drama Crash Landing on You as an undercover agent acting as a chicken delivery man.  His latest work is the psychological romantic-comedy series It’s Okay Not To Be Okay which airs on Netflix.

So far, his latest drama has been creating a lot of buzz specially because it tackles a lot of issues that are still considered taboo to this age. Also, his partnership with the glamorous Seo Ye Ji stirs a lot of talk among fans and viewers due to their undeniable chemistry together. Although the drama is still airing, we can’t wait for the rest of the episodes to air! While our anticipation builds, let’s look back at the top Kim Soo Hyun dramas that we could watch while waiting for the upcoming It’s Okay Not To Be Okay episodes.

1.  Moon Embracing The Sun (2012)

Set in the Joseon dynasty, Kim Soo Hyun plays the role of Crown Prince or King Lee Hwon who fell in love with Yeon-woo who was played by Han Ga In.

The 30-Day BTS Song Challenge (Part 3 of 3)

Wow! We’re down the the third and last part of The 30-Day BTS Song Challenge! I really had a great time choosing the songs though I think 30 songs is not enough to showcase how great the Bangtan boys are! Refer to Part 1 and Part 2 first if you want a smooth transition 🙂

As we enjoy the 2020 BTS Festa this month, I would like to share 10 more tracks that will truly comfort you, trigger you to think of some things and make you happy. The fun thing about the discography of BTS is it is so rich with quality content. So Lit!

Anyway, shall we proceed?

Day 21: A Song That Saved You: Black Swan by BTS

I recall watching the first live performance for Black Swan in The Late, Late Night Show with James Corden and wondered why BTS doesn’t have an official music video for it yet. I screamed when they simply dropped the music video on March 4 without fanfare or anything. BTS Army were shocked in a good way and I have to say this is my second favorite music video of theirs. It’s too classy! This song saved me from boredom and the lyrics made me think about my own creative endeavors. I will probably write a separate blogpost about that. Also, I tried learning the choreography of Black Swan. It felt great to dance again while in isolation.

Day 22: A Song for the Summer: Paradise by BTS

I imagine myself enjoying a sunset cruise in Boracay with a bottle of beer in my hand while this song is on full blast. This just gives you that ‘it’s ok to relax you deserve it’ kind of vibe, which is perfect for those who are on vacation but can’t disconnect from their work mentally. It would be nice if they can perform this song live or use it in their next Bon Voyage or Summer Package adventure.

The 30-Day BTS Song Challenge (Part 2 of 3)

Did you like the first part of my 30-Day BTS Song Challenge? I really had a hard time picking the songs. I guess that’s a good problem to have, right?

On the second part, I noticed that almost half of the tracks in this post are solo songs from the members. Hope you enjoy and take the time to appreciate what they can offer. Who knows, you might have a favorite or bias after you listen to the chosen songs!

Are you ready for a coffee shop-inspired BTS playlist? 😛

Day 11: A Song to Listen to in the Café: Coffee by BTS

Who wouldn’t want to stay in a coffee shop when you hear Jungkook’s endearing intro for coffee? This song was often played in the coffee shop I used to visit in our old neighborhood. This is a teenybopper type of track that will make you feel good and crave for that delicious coffee. I don’t like caramel macchiatto or anything with caramel or super duper sweeteners, but I will give it a go if Jungkook is the barista! LOL!

Day 12: A Song That Makes You Want to Fall in Love: LOVE by BTS RM

I first heard the intro of Love from the BTS Mini Figure teaser in YouTube. The song was played when RM’s cutie mini version was revealed. I searched for the full song and liked it in an instant. I didn’t expect that such sweet song will come from RM knowing that he tends to do groundbreaking rap tracks. I fell in love with it when I saw his live performance for this song and I was just amazed on how he was able to hype up the crowd on his own. Live and Love! That’s what RM’s LOVE can do!
