About ME

Annyeong! So you are curious about who is this sleepless lady.. Well, she is a boring person who like to share stuff that caught her interest. She can be blogging for hours at once with her warm sandwich turned cold cuz she’s ‘too busy’ to eat. She could also be offline for days due to mood swing. So far she’s not willing enough to share other stuff aside from lyrics. Cuz she thinks that’s the least she can do to keep this blog updated since she’s lazy like that. Well there’s more to it. Lemme introduce her in details. Ok stahp with 3rd person already. Hey I’m Aliana! Besides introducing myself, this can also be FAQs to answer a few questions people had asked me in the past 🙂

Who am I?

» a Malaysian lil ambassador
» a Korea not-so-secret admirer
» a movie goer
» a K-drama loyal viewer
» a K-variety show addict. Like REALLY.
» a backpacker
» a concert goer
» an earnest music listener (95% Korean music. Pls don’t flash only kpop in your mind)
» an easily-fascinated-by-many-things person. and.. I can even cry at the sight of moving clouds…
» an unofficial music/drama critic. Even my favorites cannot escape from my eagle observation. swords clashing sound

What I did and currently doing here

» sharing lyrics
» album/drama review
» travel log (I recall maybe I did once duhhh so lazy)
» Maybe a bit of Korean language
» just… anything.. lol I’m such a random person

Can I read and speak Korean?

Yes and No. I can read. If not how come I could romanized the lyrics ayy. 🙂 Hmm.. I think I can speak a little below than kindergarten level. Not fluent at all. I’m suck at grammar. I think from 1 (weak) to 10 (excellence) I’m at 2? *sad emoticon*

Did I take any TOPIK test?

Nope. I didn’t even go to any class.

Can I translate stuff?

Only for simple sentence. Lyrics? Mostly nope. I recall I did twice. Well, I’m not qualified. plus my English is not good enough to make poetic stanzas. sigh

Favorites/The Best K-Drama I’ve ever watch

Hmm… I’ve watched countless drama since I was 14. when was it. 2001? erhmerhgerd I’m a grandma. If I have to name my favorite one, you’ll have to scroll down more and more. 😦 So I will narrow it down to the Best one. Still hard to choose. 2016 to early 2017 has a collection of many great dramas. But among all, Goblin has stole my heart… completely. I believe majority is in withdrawal right now. I must say this drama is something else. It pulls me without even trying. Everything about it is perfect. Casts, OST, cinematography, fantasy plots, humor… It’s magic. As at Jan 2017, Goblin is officially TOP my Best Drama charts. Followed by Signal and Misaeng 🙂 Looking forward for more!

  1. Hi Aliana,
    Hope you are doing good. Read your blog and got to know quite a few things about K-Dramas. 😀 Was glad to come across it.
    Could you help me translate the middle part of the Crash Landing on You ost?
    Here’s the link :

    Thanks.

    1. hello!

      i’m doing fine, I hope you are doing good too 🙂
      thank you for visiting my blog, I’m glad you came across mine! ^^
      anyways the middle part of this OST came from the opening title.
      Unfortunately they didn’t include the lyrics for this part be it in the opening title,
      or the full version. They only include the english part in the full version..
      so I’m aware of the missing part and trust me I’m looking into it like crazy.
      It’s hard to figure out the language. At first I thought it was in Korean but
      there are many foreign words I’m not familiar..
      I’m still looking, so if I found any, I’ll update the lyrics and let you know.

      Thanks! 🙂

  2. Hey! i wanted to ask you to translate this song or you can help me find someone to translate it in a good way
    “Stranger’s Love” (낯선 사람의 사랑) By Jang Jin-Young X The Barberettes
    its from SM STATION S2
    thank you!!!

  3. Hi! I’m Gee from the Philippines. I just want to say I like your blog. Keep up the good work! I’m also a fan of Korean music, drama and food.

  4. Hello!!!
    Just wanna ask you, pls
    Do you know the ending soundtrack of “Hidden Identity” in each ep ?

      1. There are 4 OST.
        But it’s an instrumental music. I can not find it, even I love it so much.
        Anyway, thanks for notice me 😀

      2. Ahh.. i get it. Usually, near the end of drama or after the drama ended, the production team will release full soundtrack album. Instrumentals will be in it. I notice not all drama release full soundtrack, let’s hope this drama will have one soon. 🙂

    1. I look into it and I actually never heard of the song before, but I heard Jeong Yeop’s voice which is a big hint for me. I found it yeay! ^^

      It’s a song by Brown Eyed Soul (Jeongyeop is one of the member) titled “그대” means “You”. heres the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZuJj7jGPHs
      I heard a woman voice in the Return of Superman clip which later I discover that this song has made into a CF song with Han Hyo-joo. Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zPy8HusDVI

      Hope it helps 🙂
