Mo Reasons To Celebrate A Liebster

If you’ve been following me on twitter you’ll notice that I have, after almost 10 years of kdrama-watching, FINALLY found my one true love:

Ladies and Gentlemen: Song Jae Rim... (is mine)
Ladies and Gentlemen: Song Jae Rim… is mine. (You can have the pants, though.)

Coinciding with this happy event is beebgee and Admin A giving Kdrama Laws a Liebster award!

Since I’m new to this Be Completely Crazy About An Oppa thing, I wanted to go all out for once.

Ergo, all questions posed via Liebster Award shall be answered in relation to Mo Il Hwa/Song Jae Rim. And anything that does not apply shall be ignored. *lalala I can’t hear you*

First up, beebgees’s questions:

When you’re not listening to Korean music, which genres from which countries do you like?

When I’m not listening to Korean music, I’m looking at Song Jae Rim gifs on tumblr. (Pre-SongJaeRim Era, I only like a song if it plays in a kdrama and I associate said song with the show. So I never did develop a wide taste in music. How boring, right?)

If you could create any boy-/girl/coed-group  you like, who would you choose for it and what kind of music would they produce? You can choose ANYONE.

The Shanghai Club Band

  • Ok Ryeon (vocals)
  • Soso (manager)
  • Mo Il Hwa, Jae Hwa, Jung Tae (dancers)

Their band concept is “Brawling In A Bar“. Where the vocalist sings a solemn song while chaos ensues all around her and the band’s dancers beat up anyone who tries to disturb the performance.

You have to choose one K-Drama to introduce one of your friends who has never seen one to Kdrama-Land. Which one would you choose?

Nail Shop Paris – everyone else would suck so much, my friends will think that Song Jae Rim is IT. Which he is. I was just trying to emphasize the point… (prepare to be slayed with the cuteness)

What is your favorite OST?
At the moment, I have this video on loop. So, this:

Imagine having to listen to the same three songs for the rest of your life…which ones would you choose?
T___T Such a difficult question. How about I list what I DON’T want to listen to? Because I found this song and it was so sad.

What is the best non-Asian series you have ever seen?
Song Jae Rim is Asian. IGNORED. 😛

If you had to stop writing for whatever reason- how would you continue to express your thoughts: Using audio podcasts or videos?


I would do silly videos reenacting all of Mo’s cool scenes from Age of Feeling until my (foolish) videos go viral and catapult Song Jae Rim to greater fame. Then his manager will invite me to guest with Song Jae Rim in Running Man, where I will make all sorts of excuses to manhandle him. For the sake of variety.

When did you start writing a blog and why?

I’ve been blogging aimlessly in different platforms since 2005, but Kdrama Laws was started 2 years ago. I used to think What am I doing? I’m not an expert at Korean culture! Why am I blogging?  But now, I think I know why. I was supposed to keep blogging so I could meet these wonderful squeecappers who will, in turn, introduce me to Mo My Il Hwa.

What was the most shocking scandal in 2013 in your opinion?

That the Two Weeks assassin didn’t slay all women in one look. I mean, look at him.

I died.
I died.

What is your funniest memory of Asian/Korean Entertainment?

Watching this video and giggling at the Japanese dubs. I got so used to subtitles that I find dubbed videos jarring now.

Next, from topofthekpops:

What kpop group would you most like to be classmates with in real life?
2NE1, because then I’d be able to ask them to explain this video:

(I hated Song Jae Rim in this. Yes, I am not completely blind as to like abusive boyfriends. Yet.)

Which kdrama character would you most like to be?

Soso! Because right now, she’s the one with CHANCE! on My Il Hwa:

Stop killing me writer-nim and pay Song Jae Rim's wages!
Stop killing me writer-nim! (And pay Song Jae Rim’s wages!)

Who is your absolute ultimate bias?

Well, I know it’s not obvious since I’m kinda shy and all, but there’s this guy called SJR who I’ve started to like a lot. Do you know him?

If you could ask any person in k-entertainment one question, who and what would you ask?

Song Jae Rim.

Will you marry me?

Which kpop star/korean actor that is usually regarded as super attractive do you not find attractive?

Kim Hyun Joong. I used to like him best in BOF but now I don’t even see my Jihoo anymore because, THIS:

More Il Hwa
More Il Hwa

Which kpop star/korean actor that’s normally not regarded as attractive do you find attractive?

Everyone kept saying that Song Jae Rim was “eew” in Nail Shop Paris, but I BEG TO DISAGREE.

Nail Shop Paris. K. Very K.
Nail Shop Paris. K. Very K.

Which is your favorite out of these three dramas and why?: ‘Rooftop Prince’, ‘Dream High’ and ‘Secret Garden’.
No Song Jae Rim. IGNORED. 😛

What is the country you’d most like to visit, excluding Korea?

Who is the one person, celebrity or not, that you look up to the most?

Recently? Song Jae Rim is the celebrity I look up the most.

Oh. You meant look up to… Haha. Sawry! Here, have a kitty pic:

All your ovaries are mine.
All your ovaries are mine.

If you could take one characteristic from each member of your favorite kpop group, what would you take?

I only need one KPop Superpower:

The ability to pay for Song Jae Rim to star in my own MV.

Thank you beebgee and Admin A!

Thank you for the nominations!

And thank you so much for playing along (though I might have forgotten to tell you of my devious plan to make everything about Song Jae Rim). Hehehe

Still, I hope you had fun reading the answers. Have a nice day!

  1. Haha this is hilarious! I am still chuckling while writing this.. such a fun read:D
    Please tell me you knew that he was a fixed member of Oh My School aka 100 Points out of 100 aka one of the best variety shows ever?!
    Jae Rim strangely reminds me of a better looking version of a person I know and it kind of freaks me out a bit tbh

    1. OMG I DID NOT KNOW THAT. Will rectify it now. Thanks for the tip! I’m new to this crazy fangirl thing. 😀

      Knowing a lookalike of a kdrama crush in real life is sooooo weird. I was the manager for this small team and there was this student/intern who looked like Yoo Seung Ho. O___O

      Noona squeeing is only cute in kdramas. In real-life/workplace? It’s kinda awkward. Maybe that’s why I don’t watch a lot of Yoo Seung Ho.

      1. I don’t remember that well but I thought that he was a fixed member in the beginning so yeah more than 2 episodes xD but I might be wrong and if the wiki page says otherwise…
        I hope I have not given you false hopes… 3 episodes is something right? 😀

    1. I’m sorry. *hangs head in shame*

      I was wondering if the undie pic was too much. I don’t usually post that stuff. I am possessed. Not myself. Not myself at all. T________T

    welcome to the CLUB of who-possessed-my-soul?!?! heeeeee!!!
    i must say, he looked miiighty fine in “the suspect,” though it’s a shame he had all of 3 minutes of screen time. okay, maybe 4. heeee!

  3. HAHAHAHA!!! This was a fabulous, hysterical read, mary!! XD I love that you’ve got Oppa-love flowing out of your ears. And I do agree that SJR has lovely appeal. I noticed and liked him in MoonSun even though I was ALLL about Kim Soo Hyun in that show ^^

  4. I am trying to resist watching WTFParis now, but I feel the pull. Who said he was not good looking in that? I have just spent an hour looking at all the youtube videos of him in that show when I should be grading papers. He’s like a drug!

    1. OMG I really have to work faster on those squeecaps to tip you over to the dark side. MWAHAHAHA

      A lot of people hate his facial hair in NSP. 😦

    1. *eyes kakashi* dunno what you’re laughing about. This was your fault. (Although if I infected you with the RimBug in return… does that make us even?)

      DON’T WATCH THE WTFPARIS VIDEOS. Major spoilers there. Or not. Meh. I saw those spoilers and still couldn’t guess the ending. That fooking show sure enjoyed jerking us around…

  5. I really loved this thread, mary! So funny and yet so you 🙂 Thank you for making me aware of who SJR is. I really love him with long hair. And from the looks of it, boy knows how to shake what his mama gave him (his bumbum, as the children I take care of would say 🙂 ).

    I seriously couldnt stop laughing, got here after reading an article about surplus princess being reduced to 10 eps ㅠ ㅠ, I was more than depressed and this helped a little!!
