I literally finished the American drama, The Good Wife, a few days before the Korean remake began.  The dangers of looking forward to a new show is that you’re just not sure what you’re going to get but so far, I’m optimistic about the drama.  I will say that the drama makes me think a lot about the original American series as there are so many similarities.  There are some differences as well but the characters are generally the same and even seem to have the same backstories which I’m not totally against as long as the story is compelling.  And so far, it’s been pretty compelling.

Tonight is the last episode of the 2nd season of Three Meals a Day, Fishing Village Edition.  I’ve been enjoying watching Cha Seung Won make fabulous meals, Yoo Hae Jin trying to catch fish and Son Ho Joon… well, basically at their beck and call.  The 2nd season has been pretty decent and there have been lots of guest but I think they really saved the best for last.

Her album isn’t due out until Cinco de Mayo but we got a little taste of it with “Hard Out Here” back in November.  She recently released another single from the album called “Our Time” and listening to it just reinforces how much I still like her.
