peter pan collar

so lately, i've kind of just been hanging out. still applying for jobs and going for interviews but at the same time, getting more and more annoyed at this job hunt thing and annoyed at the fact that my future is all up in the air. it doesn't work well for me because i'm so used to planning my whole life out and knowing what i want hahaha.
anyway, on monday, i got super super sad and felt like i was going to have a 맨붕. i know i don't have to always be so composed and have it altogether but i've done it for so long, i don't really know how to handle my meltdown.
i ended up doing what i do best - watching a new korean drama. i've been watching more korean variety shows than dramas in the recent years but turned to a drama this time. i watched 빅 starring 공유 and 이민정. well, technically i'm not done with it because it's still showing and i have to wait a painful one week for the last 2 episodes hahaha. thats what happens when you watch 14 episodes in two days and have no patience. 
so basically, 18-year-old Kang Gyung-Joon's spirit suddenly finds itself in the body of 30-year-old Seo Yoon Jae (공유) . Seo-Yon-Jae is a successful doctor and engaged to high school teacher Gil Da-Ran (이민정). Gil Da-Ran just so happens to be the teacher of 18-year old Kang Gyung-Joon. and so yeah, 이민정 gets stuck with her student and has to marry him cause physically, he's her fiance haha. it's super hilarious! and omg, 공유 is such a good actor! and omg, 공유's 몸 너무 좋다! hahaha.

anyway, while watching the show, i realized how much i love asian fashion! the clothes are so pretty and seriously, this whole show, they wore my favorite peter pan collar so much! i was oohing and ahhing over the clothes all the time hahaha.
이민정's style throughout the show consisted mostly of cute blouses tucked into flare skirts/high waist shorts
asian fashion kind of has a very girly, feminine feel
i seriously want this white top. i love lace! esp. white lace
more peter pan collar. i love the back of this last one cause there's some color block going on.
in the drama, suzy has great clothing too and she always wears headbands so i love her outfits too!

so yeah, that's a quick look at asian fashion. oh so pretty! 
and watching korean dramas, there are always some cheesy but cute scenes:
the winter scene where its cold and the guy holds the girl's hand
she thinks about him at 10:10 each day and so that's the 10:10 sign hahaha (hands on a clock)
asian wedding shoots are the cutest! the ideas and concepts behind each scene of the wedding shoots are always so cute and well thought out.
measuring the length of the bed using their hands and him pulling her in
competition to see who can color the best panda out of a white bear haha
and then there are always ridiculous scenes such as this one. the father accused gil da ran of cheating on her spouse and locked her up. and then her husband came to save her and her father locked him up together with her. and so they spent the night locked up like that haha

so there you have it, a look into my culture hahaha. 
and you know whats funny? i love all things korean. i watch nothing but korean shows and i crave korean food all the time (probably cause i see them on the shows so much). in fact, i was craving it so much, i went and had some the other day hahaha:
it was so good. tasted like what i would have roaming the streets of seoul. yum.

so if you were wondering, that's what i have been up to the past 2 days hahaha.
i still need to blog about life lately, the end of my internship, as well we my DC trip. i will soon :)
