Korean Dramas I’ve Just Finished

I have been watching quite a few dramas lately, I had planned to blog about my “currently watching” dramas but i ended up finishing all those i was watching before i got around to blogging about it😅 . Either way I hope you enjoy and check out the dramas that I listed they were pretty good. 👍

This list is a compilation of all the dramas I’ve watched and completed from the beginning of this year to now.

Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

Image result for Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

This drama was a supernatural romantic comedy.

“A fabled “goblin” attempts to end his life by marrying a human priestess, but things get complicated when he starts to actually fall for her, and in turn, finds a new reason for wanting to stay alive.”

This drama had really good actors which made this drama very fun to watch.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

“A spunky female weightlifter and free-spirited male swimmer meet on campus, only to find out their pasts may be intertwined”

I really enjoyed this drama it was very sweet and cute. It really made me happy to watch every single episode. The romance was so pure and the actors did  a really good job of making the love seem real.

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

“A freakishly strong, but totally sweet girl is caught between the love for her arrogant, yet gorgeous boss, and her handsome but disinterested childhood crush.”

This drama was probably my favorite drama of this year. I highly highly extremely recommend this drama. It was a thriller, romantic and comedy filled drama that i never wanted to end. The romance was so real and perfect. The thriller was actually thrilling and creepy but if you not into thrillers do not make that stop you from watching this drama. I am also not into thrillers but its not the main parts of the drama its just an added part to it. MUST WATCH!

Saimdang: Light’s Diary (Herstory)

Image result for Saimdang: Light's Diary (Herstory)

“This historical drama tells the untold story of the artist who defied the limitations of her society and became a legend.”

This drama is not one that i would usually watch. It is my first historical drama that I have actually finished. This drama was very long and some parts were very boring and dragged a lot it was also very sad. I think what made me continue this drama was how handsome the male lead was and the slight funny bits and also the strong love and passion for painting the actors had. It was a really good drama all in all.

Lovely Love Lie (The Liar and His Lover)

Image result for Lovely Love Lie (The Liar and His Lover)

“A famous composer with a hidden identity falls for a girl with a great voice in this adaptation of the popular manga of the same name”

I have read the manga of this drama and i read it a long time ago so I can not really remember it but i believe it was better than the drama and the male lead was not the right choice in my opinion. I did not really enjoy this drama. I was very clique and kind of boring. I was not attracted to the male lead so that made it hard for me to like the relationship.

My Secret Romance

Image result for My Secret Romance cast

“A partying chaebol has a one-night stand with a beautiful girl. When she joins his company years later, it is difficult to hide their secret romance.”

I enjoyed this drama mainly because of the comedy. This drama was very interesting to watch…bright and happy. It was quite an obvious script but i still enjoyed the characters and the look of the drama.

Shopping King Louis

Image result for Shopping King Louie

“An heir used to shopping away his grief finds himself trapped in Seoul with no memory and no one to help him except a sweet, rural girl who teaches him the value of a life without money.”

This drama started off really well. it was really funny and i liked to see the actors…and then during the middle of this drama i began to get bored of the hole thing. It wasn’t as funny anymore and the male lead was not attractive to me anymore. Anyway i struggled through it and finally finished.

This drama is more of a action almost serious but not too serious type of drama. Starring Ji Chang Wook started out as a fugitive and then became a personal body guard to the presidential candidates wife. Eventually he falls for the hidden daughter of the candidate and begins to protect her.

This drama was amazing i loved every thing about it i was completely glued to the screen the entire time.

This is probably the closest I will every get to watching a historical drama. This drama was about two students met eachother in an online game based in the historical theme. they soon meet eachother in real life. The two of them are acctually the strongest players in the game. This drama has amazing chemistry between the two people and it really keeps you interested and its also nice and long.

#5 My Amazing Boyfriend

Chinese supernatural type of drama about a guy who was awakened by a girls blood and because of that he was somehow connected to her. Soon they end up leaving together because he has now where to go and then obviously they fall in love and helps stop people from finding out his secret.

 

Cinnamon Rolls

This week I attempted another recipe form the cool Japanese youtuber’s channel that i mentioned in my last blog . This recipe was not vegan but I tried to change around some of the ingredients. In place of butter I added margarine…milk–> oat milk….eggs–> banana. I read that you can use either banana or apple sauce as an egg replacement. It did have a slight banana flavour.

Mine got a bit burned because I left it in longer than the recipe said to because i wasn’t sure if it was ready. But all in all it still turned out okay…edible lol. my sisters enjoyed it.

This is how mine came out.

Curry Buns

While scrolling through youtube I watched a video by this youtuber sharmander who is a youtuber that I watch often she and her friend tried out the recipe and I took most the recipe from there but the youtuber which they got it from has really nice video quality and is just really nice to watch. All the videos on there are really nice and seems simple.

When I saw this I immediately said ” I must try this!!” she linked the video of where she got her recipe from here which has many different recipes that looks great and I also want to try so look out for some more try outs from there on my blog. I baked it and used a normal pizza dough. it was delicious.

This is how mine came out

It was a bit white but the dough was well cooked and very tasty. It tasted a lot better when it got cool. I am so happy that I tried it. I’m always looking for easy different recipes to do for lunch once in a while #greatfind 🙂 . They were quite big and filled me up quickly which was great since i had it for lunch.

Ginger bread cookies

I have never had ginger bread cookies so when I saw this recipe and I had all the ingredients i decided to try it out.

The recipe I followed was on this web site http://www.ilovevegan.com/perfect-vegan-gingerbread-cookies/

While making this I didn’t use an electric mixer there for the oil and sugar mixture didn’t get “nice and light”. Also I used canola  oil instead of coconut oil and normal brown sugar. For the addition of molasses i used mostly honey and a small dash of black strap molasses since that’s what I had. When it had to become a dough it was quite sticky and unable to form into anything so I added more flour…..All in all it came out okay maybe not the way it was supposed to. It was nice had a little doughy taste but other than that my family enjoyed it. ^_^

Here’s how mine came out

It made the house smell delicious 🙂

Sugar Cookies for my valentine

I acquired this recipe from someone on pinterest [ http://www.babble.com/best-recipes/the-best-vegan-sugar-cookies-ever/ ]

I added extra flour when forming the dough in to a ball because it was quite sticky and unmanageable. All in all it came out great and P.S my valentine loved it 🙂 . For the icing I started with 2 cups of the powdered sugar and added in the rest as I went along and it was way too much for the amount to cookies that I made.  Also I also substituted the  soy milk with “oat milk” you can check out that recipe on youtube here [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk3RDyhnmk4 ] .

This is how mine came out

Really good I was very happy with it even though it wasn’t as thin as the picture but I like the thickness of this one.

My valentine was surprised when I said to him that the cookies were vegan 😀 he couldn’t believe it.

 

Pumpkin Pie

I have never eaten a pumpkin pie until now. I have always wanted to try it but never got the chance. I found a recipe on a YouTube video and blog called “the edgy vegan”. I switched up some of the ingredients to what I had at home. In the end it was still delicious and my siblings enjoyed it.

This is how mine came out

The ingredients that I changed based on the recipe are as follows.

For the crust I used whole wheat flour and margarine ( instead of all purpose flour and vegan butter)

For filling I used real pumpkin, honey (in place of maple syrup), fresh coconut milk ( in place of almond milk), normal sugar, arrow root (in place of cornstarch), olive oil (in place of coconut oil) and no pink salt i don’t know what that is anyway.

When rolling out the crust I didn’t have wax paper so i just used foil. Also I made the crust by hand and blend the filling in a normal blender.

The only reason I changed the ingredients is because I didn’t have the ingredients. The crust was delicious even with the wheat flour.

Maybe the next time I make it I’ll try it with whipped cream 🙂 .

Cranberry Rug

This “pie” use to have a recipe which my mom gave me but over time it got lost so I just did whatever. With that said…this recipe is not legit because I just winged it. It came out pretty good if I say so myself. The only problem is that the crust was not together enough so maybe it could have a bit more oil. Also I didn’t document precise measurements  but you can just use the ingredients and figure it out…one day i will create an updated version of this with better every thing and maybe you guess could tell me how you did it.  I really enjoy this pie btw. 🙂
