Girl’s Generation and 2NE1 Who wore it better battle

Girl’s Generation’s Yoona and Tiffany and 2NE1’s Dara was spotted wearing the same stripped midi-dress in blue and green tones by Fendi.

Let’s start with our forever gorgeous Dara. She attended Fendi’s spring summer 2017 fashion show in Milan wearing the dress with her hair down and black thick-heeled pumps. She finishes her look with Fendi’s red Dotcom Click bag.

If I was to wear it out, I would be concerned if the stripes would look too matchy.

However Dara looks graceful and ladylike pairing the two together. The contrast in color between the red and blue looks great too.

When fall comes, you start seeing brown, purple, auburn, forest green etc. However I could never bring myself to buy those colors because I’m probably only going to wear them in the fall. I always feel those colors look dull and bring down my mood. However I changed my mind after seeing Yoona wearing these colors on the September 2016 cover of Vogue Taiwan.

I loved every single outfit that she wore for that photoshoot. She manages to make the clothes look feminine and refined even with her ruffled hair.

What catched my eye the most is Yoona wearing the same exact blue dress. Her look is minimalistic with short black nails and silver star loop earrings.

When Yoona wears the dress, she makes it the focal point of her look. All the lines and waves on her dress accentuates her.

I believe it was in the midst of Tiffany’s controversy when Fendi released a video titled “A Day in Rome with Fendi”. In the video you see Tiffany getting her makeup done and her clothes sized to fit her.

She ecstatically twirls around in the dress, satisfied with her new outfit and heads out to sightsee in rome.

Her look is the most unique where she wears a thick-striped blue and white shirt underneath the thinly-striped dress. She wears these black peep-toed heels with socks on. Unlike Dara, she chooses a handbag in the same color scheme as her dress and finishes off with a modern white and blue timepiece that matches her inner shirt.

You have to check out the video below. It’s totally magical.

So, which look do you like best?

Personally I like Yoona’s look best. She made the dress look like the it dress to have. Minimalistic, refined and sophisticated. But of course she has the body to make the dress look amazing.

The Choovely Family Becomes the Perfect Models For STL

STL has chosen the perfect models for their swim wear line. Which family can exude the cuteness, coolness and sexiness better than this family can. Their bright, cheery and active aura complements the bold multicolored prints designed by Keith Haring.

Just looking at these photos, I can feel the happiness and excitement for a day at the beach with the family.

Watch to Watch in June

Hello everyone. I know, it’s been 5 months since I last posted but sometimes life just takes over. I can’t tell you guys I’m back, but I’m still alive and would still love to continue posting.

I am a bit more active on my tumblr blog which gives me inspiration on what to watch next  and I also make GIFs from scenes in dramas that are memorable to me. So if you’re bored, you can find me there.

I just finished Imperial Doctress with Cecilia Liu and love it just as much as I thought I would. While watching this drama, teaser ads stuck at the end and beginning of the video for Huang Xuan‘s Hunter looked quite appealing. For one, he’s not playing the annoying second male lead that went haywire for a good second part of Imperial Doctress. Continue reading

2015 SBS Kpop Awards Full Performances

At the end of every year, there are numerous award show and performances from my favorite idols. Sometimes these shows are translated into english and sometimes they aren’t.

This year my fav artist IU is hosting the SBS Kpop Awards aka 2015 SBS Gayo Daejun with veteran MC Shin Dong Yup so I have to see it. This is IU’s second time in MCing this show and surprisingly it’s Shin Dong Yup’s first time.

I always have a hard time finding subbed video of what the MC’s are saying. Thankfully the people at viki has translated the 2015 SBS Kpop Awards. However while I was watching it, I found that the video hosted on viki was quite blurry eventhough  it stated that it’s 360p.

I decided to watch the english translated part on viki and then find the HQ videos of the performances on youtube.

Below is the playlist of the performances in chronological order of how they appeared. I could only find some of the videos in HQ so not all the performances are HQ.

My favorite performance for the first part so far would be the special stage Diva Together by Ailee, Luna,Eunji and Solar. Because IU hasn’t promoted her newest album yet, I believe this is her first time performing 23 outside of her concert. I’ve been watching it nonstop since the only other live videos of her performing 23  are from fancams.

I liked the second part a lot more than the first half , my favorite performance would be

  • Taemin performing Yoo Jae Ha’s Because I love You
  • Exo and Taemin’s joint performance of MAMA and Lucifer
  • Girl’s Generation performing Lion Heart and Catch Me If You Can

Which performance is your favorite?

Just wondering for when I upload music performance in the future, would you prefer me embedding each video on my blog or would you rather I put the videos in a playlist?

Full translation of the entire awards at viki here

I didn’t upload any of the videos. I only grouped them into the playlist.

2015 in review on DramaDreamLand

Happy New Years!!! I would like to take this moment to thank everyone who have followed me and commented on this blog. It means so much to me to know that I am not a loner in this world and that there are other people who appreciate dramas just as much as I do. The comments and conversations I have with you guys are what propels me to write my drama reviews and to keep this blog going.

For the past two month, due to real life obligations I didn’t have time to do any reviews and make an posts. However I am still alive and actively watching dramas. I am still quite active on tumblr as making memorable gifs takes a lot less time than writing an entire drama review. I do plan to write a year end review of all the dramas that I watched during this year soon.

Currently I am behind on many dramas. It may be because a majority of the dramas I’ve watched this year were lackluster and I have found more enjoyment in watching  variety show and have been marathoning through Running Man and Infinity Challenge. I am still in the midst of watching Yunge from the Desert and I also started a couple korean dramas (Last and Bubblegum). The next drama that  I am dying to watch would probably be From 5 to 9 and Love Me If You Dare.

I was checking my emails and found that wordpress stats has made an overview of my blog for this year.

If you’re interested you can check it out at the link below :

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 64,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

And again, thanks for being such great listeners to this drama addict and I wish you all a Happy New Year!!!
