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 about me 🙂

who am i?

» a malaysian lil ambassador
» a korea not-so-secret admirer
» a movie goer
» a kdrama loyal viewer
» a kvariety show addict. Like REALLY.
» 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. 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 am i doing here?

» sharing lyrics
» album/drama review
» travel log (i recall maybe i did once duhhh so lazy)
» maybe a bit of korean language
» basically intended for various stuff but it somehow became some sort of lyric blog lmao

can i read and speak korean?

yes and no. i can read. that’s how i could do romanization 🙂 actually my listening is better than speaking. i can speak a little.. not fluent at all cos i’m suck at grammar. i think from 1 (weak) to 10 (excellence), i’m at 2.7? 🤭

did i take any TOPIK test?

no. i didn’t go to any class.

can i translate stuff?

only for easy sentence. lyrics? depends.. i did a few but with a lot of work. only doing it for desperate request or when i feel like it cos i’m not qualified enough. understanding korean is one thing, having poor english skill is another limitation.

who is my favorite celebrity/actors/singers?

my favorite celebrities are mostly actors. kim rae won, ha ji won, kang dong won etc. are among actors that i’ve liked for so long, i grew up watching them. they are like my default favorite already. lee seung gi is my default favorite too. my friends and family will think of me when they see lee seung gi’s name lol. that shows how much i’ve fangirled about him when he was an active singer. shout out to kim woo bin and lee jong suk who has a special place in my heart, cha eun woo for always make me feel good with his handsome look and genuine personality, kim seon ho for literally breathing, kim jung hyun who captivated me with his passion in acting, na in woo who i hated in the drama mystic pop-up bar, but turns out he’s a ball of sunshine after getting to know his personality in mr. queen’s behind story, big bang and super junior for being my first in kpop, msg wannabe for bringing back the fangirl in me even for temporary, winner, roy kim, jannabi, nct that i always pray for their success, mc mong oppa for his old-fashioned but-still-relevant music, are there more? of course! i love way too many actors and singers. i can’t do this.

this is just the tip of an iceberg. no way i could mention all name in here.

what is my favorite variety/reality show?

» 1 night 2 days (currently season 4 ❤ season 1 was legendary)
» infinite challenge (has ended but still iconic for me)
» hangout with yoo
» the great escape (the pain of waiting for new season is real)
» master in the house (very informative!)
» i live alone
» happy together (has ended but i would revisit from time to time)

what is my favorite kdrama?

there are so many kdrama to mention, so i just list down a few…

» hot stove league
» signal
» tunnel
» live up to your name
» while you were sleeping
» sky castle
» misaeng
» mr. queen
» defendant
» fated to love you
» hospital playlists
» dr. romantics
» hometown cha cha cha

my special kdrama

» beautiful days
my 1st korean drama ever in 2001. this drama marked my first in everything. my first lead, lee byung hoon and choi ji woo, ryu si won as second male lead, and it was shin min ah’s debut drama. i remember i hated her character so much in here. i didn’t even know it was from korea cos i didn’t recognize korean language yet at this time. it was foreign to me, yet it was very interesting but i don’t know what country it came from until i watch winter sonata.

» winter sonata
broadcasted on our national tv not long after beautiful days began airing, on different channel and different timeslot. the drama that trapped me into korean world. it was heavily promoted as this “popular drama from south korea”. i unintentionally watched the first episode and instantly fell in love. it was very beautiful, with breathtaking cinematography, the ost were amazing, beautiful actors and actresses, romantic storyline, but it was dubbed! it just happened that choi ji woo is the female lead in this drama too, so that’s how i connect the dot that the language they spoke in beautiful days is korean language.. it’s all started from there. i was at the point of no return.

» jewel in the palace
i’m not sure if this was my first sageuk drama cos i watched pretty much many sageuk back then which is unforgettable even up to this day, but i can say dae jang geum has significantly boost my interest in korean history. the beautiful in everything they presented in this drama, plus great storyline, it was phenomenal. i still see ji jin hee in his role in this drama when i see him now to be honest.

my favorite soundtrack album

» winter sonata (it screams WINTER and it’s beautiful in my ears, and in my imagination)
» the lawyers (the adrenaline of modern classical crossover — i just love it beyond words)
» princess hours (the theme song literally ringing in my ears while i’m typing this)
» fated to love you (did you know that ailee’s goodbye my love won best ost in korea drama award?)
» girl who sees smell (everything is cute in this album)
» pinocchio (dalpoyaaaaa)
» who are you: school 2015 (i wanna reset, i wanna reset, i wanna resetttttt)
» reply 1988 (i’m not korean, but somehow this remake album still manage to bring me back to my childhood)
» mr. queen (great drama with perfect ost)
» goblin (the quality of this soundtrack is insane)

… anddd the list is continually growing

  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 :



    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.


      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 🙂
