Chuno, My New Obession

Yesterday (or was it the day before yesterday??? don't give a damn though...) I was supposed to help my mom with baking cakes but then I ended up ticking to our tv set, watching the first episode of Chuno.... lol

so I'm gladly announcing that I'm currently addicted to CHUNO. have finished the series (yeah, I'm just that fast with skipping annoying parts in the series which have nothing much to do with my favorite characters in it lol

well considering that I have wasted so much time on it, why not make a summary of the series right? after all I'm so freaking loving summarizing....

Will post it sometimes later, when I'm totally free... so I hope you'll drop by soon to read it (only if you're interested in it lol)

Okay, I cannot end this post without giving you a brief explanation on this series right? lol I'm talking to myself, AGAIN!

So this drama is an awesome sageuk drama which is full of actions, filled with beautiful scenes, delivered by talented actors and my favorite part of all, it's pretty much a tearjerker... The theme may sound ridiculous, slavery, but there is more than meet the eyes! The story? it involves loyalty, first love, revenge, letting go, action, some humor, bromance, unrequited love, and lots more..

I know that my brief explanation is leaviing yu wondering, so I'll spare you some time in googling this drama, here's something that I found on the web earlier:
