FOTW | Being sick, Goblin & Amazing covers

In the life


– I've been sick the past, like, two weeks so that was great! Blocked and runny nose, painful throat, nonstop coughing... All that jazz. It turned out to be the flu and I did feel like I was dying and barely got out of bed – and when I did, I couldn't talk to people and had to remain communicating with sign language and ridiculous pantomime. A post on beating colds upcoming! 

– Slowly everything is coming together. I found someone who would take over my flat since I'm moving to London upcoming March for six months and everything is being planned. I'm so glad I have "one less problem" to take care of.

– Exams are coming up and I'm in the midst of preparing for them. Beating procrastination isn't all too easy but I'm working hard because I know the disappointment in myself will be horrendous if I don't pass the exams because of the amount of shows I watched instead of studying.


Watching

Since I had my best friend Lu here with me for a few days, we did end up watching two K-Dramas.


Dream High

For me it was a re-watch of Dream High and I'm glad I watched it again because some lessons in there are really inspirational and let's talk about the music! Love. Dream High is about six unlikely students at Kirin High School with the dream of becoming K-Pop idols. They learn to develop their skills while they start to develop unlikely feelings for each other. Each one of them has their own strengths and weaknesses but they strive to debut with the support and guidance of each other. A fun tale about friendship, competition, jealousy and personal growth which I would definitely recommend.



Goblin

In ancient times, Kim Shin is an unbeatable general in wars until the young King becomes jealous of him and kills him. Kim Shin becomes a Goblin, possessing an immortal life – first seen as a blessing but then turning out to be an endless curse. Closer to the present day, Kim Shin is living with an amnesiac Grim Reaper and has waited 900 years for his human bride to end his immortal life. 


Everything about this show had us hooked since the beginning and we did only get to sleep at 6 in the morning. Totally recommended for anyone who enjoys fantasy, a crossing of Goblin and Grim Reaper, their hilarious banters and amazing parallels and character development. 


Music

  • I am deeply in love with the Goblin Soundtrack, especially the song "Stay With Me" by Punch and EXO's Chanyeol. 
  • This Ex's and Oh's cover by Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens is my new religion. 
  • Ed Sheeran is back with new songs and I cannot be happier!
  • A.C.E is a Korean group that hasn't even debuted yet but has gained popularity already by uploading singing and dancing covers. And boy, I am in love with these vocals. No offence to Blackpink but A.C.E really have the ability to make the original songs seem dull. 

What have you been enjoying this past week? 

Until then – stay cozy,
Arden
