K-Drama Flashback Weekly Watch "Boys Over Flowers" Finale Episode


Boys Over Flowers is one of the biggest Korean drama hits of our time, sweeping ratings and awards across Asia in 2009 and 2010. This Korean take on the popular Japanese manga of the same name, tackles complex issues involving outcasts, socio-economic disparity, family, love, and friendship. Jan Di is an average girl whose family owns a dry cleaning store located near the luxurious and well known Shin Hwa High School. After saving a boy from jumping off the roof of Shin Hwa High School, Jan Di is admitted into the school on a swimming scholarship. At school, Jan Di tries to avoid confrontation with the four richest and most spoiled boys known as the F4, because she knows what happens to those that stand against them. However, when Jan Di's friend, Oh Min Ji, accidentally gets ice cream on the leader of the F4's shoes, she's forced to declare war on the leader of the F4, Goo Joon Pyo. What will happen though, when she falls in love with someone from the F4 and Goo Joon Pyo starts feeling something for her too? Will the love triangle disrupt F4 and change their lives forever? Get ready for addictive drama, romance and comedy at it best.

Thank you so much to everyone who watched this drama these past weeks! It was a struggle, but we got through it yay! Hopefully we can get together again soon for the next flashback weekly watch. But I need a little break first because all I want to do is punch Lee Minho's face every time I see him.

BTS Map Of The Soul: 7 - The Journey

BTS last Japanese album is out now. We already heard "Stay Gold", the first single and this is "Your Eyes Tell" which Jungkook  helped composing and producing. It was supposed to be on his mixtape (it's been 84 years my boy) but was chosen to be on the OST of the Japanese movie "Your Eyes Tell' out in October.

I don't know what they did to Fake Love but it sounds so weird and Jimin's part in Black Swan, what happened ?
I like Dionysus though, it's less messy and Boy With Luv is still cute.
I'm not the biggest fan of the studo version of "Your Eyes Tell", the "live" they did yesterday was so much better, it's really high pitch but the vocal line nailed it.

Marz (MZMC) is fired (?) from SM Entertainment, files copyright claims for a bunch of SM tracks
