Happy New Year everyone! May your 2016 be filled with infinite happiness, good health and good fortune, lots of laughter, adventures and delicious treats! 2015 had some high and lows but was overall a pretty good year as I became further removed from some health issues and was able to move forward in some other areas as I started saying yes to many more invites and opportunities. I hope you all enjoyed your holidays. We had one of the warmest Christmases on record in NYC and it was definitely nice. We've been making the most of it and getting out and enjoying it before winter really arrives. Yes we did go and watch Star Wars. We also took care of some projects around the house and got a jump on our cleaning for Chinese New Year which is on February 8 this year. Last year we ended up binge watching the Korean drama Misaeng and this year we caught up on Oh My Venus which is a pretty formulaic rom com but it does have Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub as it's stars. These two had some incredible chemistry (see below) when they were paired up in ads for the Giordano clothing brand and they do look really good together but it was recently revealed that Min Ah is dating her current ad partner Kim Woo Bin.
One of the supporting characters is Joon Sung, a ward of So Ji Sub's character played by Sung Hoon. This is the first time I've seen him and he reminds me a little of Hong Kong actor Bosco Wong. Anyway he portrays a UFC fighter who goes by the name Korean Snake. I find this a little implausible considering how tall and lanky he is which is not the typical body type for those athletes. Either way his recent editorial for Sure magazine was smoldering.
