[from ddoboja - 3月] What I've Been Watching, What I've Been Listening To, What I've Been Doing

Hey guys~
I'm back with another monthly 'from ddoboja' post! .。.:*☆
March is already almost done...
I feel like this year is just flying by ㅠ.ㅠ  
Alsoooo I've got a few announcements for this month's 'from ddoboja' but let's get onto what I've watched, listened to, and have done in the month of March!

D R A M A S + F I L M S

This was one weird movie... LOL 
I was looking forward to it because I really enjoy Guillermo del Toro's films and I heard such goods things about it from the people around me but I couldn't get into this one ㅠㅠ
I enjoyed the artistic aspects to it but the overall storyline was meh... 

I need all of you guys to watch this ㅠㅠ
Especially if you enjoyed 'My Name is Kim Sam Soon' (which is a legendary k-drama)
Kim Sun Ah plays the same type of strong, confident female lead but this drama is so sad 
But it's also really funny at the same time
The epilogues at the end will break your heart every time because it always reveals how Kam Woo Sung and Kim Sun Ah are connected to each other 
I really really really recommend it!
There's no acting holes (except for the actress who plays Kam Woo Sung's daughter and the part time worker at Oh Ji Ho's cafe - like I don't understand the point of his character...)


I watched this film on my flight back home and this might sound super cliche but this movie really inspired me creatively and personally ㅠㅠ
I recommend it to everyone who feels as if they're stuck in a routine in their life and are scared to take any risks or chances. 
You can't get anywhere if you don't step out of your comfort zone.


Not going to lie... 
At first, I was a bit weary of watching this drama...
The title turned me off, I wasn't a huge fan of IU's acting and while translating the whole Oh Dal Su - #MeToo scandal, I didn't want to watch it even more if he was still going to be in the drama... 
But then they dropped Oh Dal Su and added our favorite actor, Park Ho San-nim from 'Prison Playbook'!
I think this character fits IU really well - her acting wasn't cringey or bad at all, her character is just a bit cynical and dark
I can't wait to watch more episodes ㅠㅠ

M U S I C 

「DAY6 - 예뻤어ㅣYou Were Beautiful」

Another month has passed and I have been listening to DAY6 nonstop
My friend recommended this song to me and I can't stop listening to it ㅠㅠ
It's so heartbreaking 
Why does it feel like I went through a serious breakup every time I listen to this song 
I literally feel like I'm a part of a drama and the male lead is chasing after me while I'm leaving on the bus LOLOL
I also get the urge to yell out "YEPEOSSEOOOOO!!!!" every time the boys sing it in the chorus and the "DAAAAAAAAA"-part 😂
But I stay quiet and just bob my head along to the beat lol


Listening to this song makes me feel like I was screwed over by a fuckboi hahaha
Her voice is so smooth 💕


Da Bin has come out with another BOP
we're seriously so spoiled 😭😭😭
Not going to lie, I had no idea what he was saying when he rapped "emrata" until I realized it  was the model's Instagram handle LOL

I really enjoy indie music and I heard this song for the first time a few days ago on 'Radio Star' with Jung In performed it (t/n: Jung In is Jo Jung Chi's wife)
For me, the song just captivates how an early morning drive feels like LOL
I can see this song coming out on 'Hyori's Homestay' but the title of the song is a bit... LOLOL


I've noticed that there are some people who read my translations and take screenshots of the post and repost them on their sites, Twitter accounts, etc without giving me any credit...
Please don't do that.
That's extremely rude to all translators who take time out of their own personal lives to translate for international fans and many of us translate for fun, we don't get paid to translate.
I don't mind if you guys share my translations on forums like OneHallyu but just remember to credit it and not leave a small 'X' on the bottom of the post.
And if you want to take screenshots and post them on your twitter fan account, just mention me on your tweet or just retweet/requote my original. 
Giving credit isn't hard, all you have to do is mention that I was the one who translated the original post and just provide a link back to my blog/post.    


Just wanted to remind you guys to be nice and respectful to all the other readers/commenters, the celebrities mentioned in the post, and even to me. 
We're all human and just because a celebrity is a public figure doesn't mean we have to be a huge asshole to them. 
Don't be mean and say unnecessary things just because you can hide behind a username. 
That's not cool~


As many of you guys already know, I traveled this month to London and Paris!
It was my first time flying alone (and it was an international flight) so the process was a bit scary but I was happy that I was able to do things independently on this flight without the help of my older sibling or parents LOL

I loved London sooooo much! 
The architecture, the weather, and oh my goshhhh... the people dress so nicely!
Everyone looked so classy with their coats and suits ㅠ.ㅠ
Why can't everyone dress like that in the US 😩 
We all look like hobos compared to them LOL

Notting Hill was my favorite part of the trip~ 
Look how pretty the houses are ♡

Fun fact: I really like going to museums, I went to four museums back to back in London in one day and boy... was I tired at the end of the day LOL
This was at the Natural History Museum and that's a whale skeleton!

Paris was... an experience... haha 
Our flight back to London got cancelled and the whole ordeal was a huge mess...
I really liked the architecture in Paris too ㅠㅠ
Europe really has the best architecture and transportation system ♡
I went to a cafe that was known for being really aesthetic on Instagram but the drinks and service weren't that good LOL

I have more pictures and vlogs but I don't want to spam you guys with them 

What have you guys been up to during the month of March?
Hope everyone is doing well 

Well then... this is the end for today!
우리 또 보자~
(t/n: let's meet again~; uri ddoboja~)

Original Source (Sports Chosun via Naver): "Hardship and suffering"...'I Live Alone' 1-uhl Lee Si Eon, goes to LA for the first time by himself

1. [+2047, -32] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ just looking at the picture is already funny 

2. [+1240, -29]  Clumsy Si Eon, I hope he's safe this time too ㅋㅋ

3. [+1093, -30] ㅋㅋ he must've gone alone later than the others, I'll enjoy watching the hardships of the U.S. trip~ 

4. [+797, -2] Ah ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I feel like the LA-special is going to be really funny~

5. [+713, -54] There are no comments ㅜㅜ great actor fighting!!!!!!!!! (t/n: this person literally commented as soon as the article was published lol so that's why there were no comments when they read the article)

I'm sooo excited for the LA-special!!!

His episode was legendary lolol

[I Live Alone Roundup] DBSK show a glimpse of their personal lives for the first time

1. [+4963, -95] Ah U-Know Yunho is so freaking funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ He now just seems cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+414, -5] Forreal for a while, I thought it was cringey but now it's past that and it's just cute ㅋㅋ 

2. [+3274, -74ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it was so funny  

3. [+2868, -82] It was the best seriously ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+2709, -163] Is Shim Changmin's face for real... (t/n: they're in awe with his handsomeness)
↪ [+240, -38] He sure is handsome 
↪ [+200, -9] I thought it was Choi Changmin until now ㅋㅋㅋㅋ;; He said it himself that for 15 years, people thought he was Choi Changmin ㅋㅋㅋ (t/n: it's because his Korean stage name is Choi Gang Changmin so people thought his last name was Choi and not Shim)

5. [+2182, -92] DBSK is forever! 

6. [+1277, -24] Seeing U-Know Yunho being like this for 15 years makes it seem like it's not a concept but his real form..  
↪ [+91, -3ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ah this comment is so funny

7. [+1385, -215] Seeing DBSK made me think that kids like Wanna One are arrogant/cocky. Look at U-Know Yunho collecting piggy banks. Kids who got their fame by luck say lewd things to their fans and say money this, money that - those kinds of kids don't last long 
 [+137, -24] I had the same thought, those kids need to learn some things. I'm not in DBSK's fan club but they're the best well-rounded idols


1. [+6478, -97] They're both the complete opposite of each other and totally charming ㅠㅠ they are good characters and have no bad scandals ㅠㅠ the best ㅠㅠ   

2. [+5425, -81] Seriously U-Know ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅌㅋㅌ so freaking funny 

3. [+4923, -84] Changmin really lives hard at life.. amazing (t/n: he takes cooking lessons, guitar lessons, and has a personal fitness trainer for sessions)

4. [+4755, -65] U-Know Yunho dancing as soon as he woke up was the best ㅋㅋㅋ    
↪ [+237, -1] I came out of the bathroom with a face mask on and as soon as I came out, Yunho was dancing and it completely fell off ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+4656, -57ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ah it was funnier because they're the complete opposite of each other  

1. [+4248, -118] Ah this part was really funny ㅋㅋㅋ U-Know Yunho is cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋ  

2. [+3697, -72] Son Ho Jun, Jung Yunho are exploding with cuteness~~ ㅋㅋㅋ  

3. [+3549, -106] They're really warmhearted and it was good to see ㅎㅎ You can feel exactly how nice of a character U-Know Yunho is ㅎ

4. [+3087, -64] It was nice to see, I hope they're friends forever 

5. [+1902, -353] The editing saved it all (t/n: the commenter is insinuating that the show's editing/captions made it funny)
↪ [+155, -18?????  
↪ [+279, -8] ㅋㅋㅋ the content was funny but the editing was also daebak

[I Live Alone Roundup] Viewers praise Seungri for being hardworking, Jun Hyun Moo holds a fan meet, DBSK will appear in next episode

1. [+3722, -69] He acknowledges it himself that his skills/talents are lacking compared to the other members but he overcomes his handicap with his language skills and successful business.. he's amazing.

2. [+3040, -184] Who else is reading 'I Live Alone' articles right now in their bed without even having eaten breakfast? 

3. [+2410, -83] Watching Seungri living life diligently makes me look back at my own life.

4. [+1915, -67] Seungri really lives life diligently, he's cool

5. [+904, -100] Who's reading this article on Saturday while getting off of work 

At his fanmeeting, a fan asked him: "Are you in a some with Han Hye Jin unni? No some?", and Jun Hyun Moo answered that he doesn't deserve her - as in, she's too good for him. (t/n: the fanmeeting was held before it was revealed that these two were dating)

1. [+4854, -144] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ are they really his fans? ㅋㅋ so freaking funny (t/n: LOL it's because during his fanmeet, his prizes for his fans - if they answered questions about him correctly, was things like a hug, forehead kiss, etc but the reactions were of the fans screeching LOL)

2. [+5138, -755] No but how can they drag out Jun Hyun Moo's fanmeeting for three weeks;; I'm not saying it wasn't funny but I'm now getting tired of it;; I was really looking forward to the LA episode, exactly when are they going to air it~~ 

3. [+3797, -314] Leave their relationship to these two, can't they just show how people live their daily lives since it was the show's original premise, they keep milking off from their relationship

4. [+2362, -305] I'm all pleased  

5. [+1158, -131] It's good that they're dating but it feels like everything is about that... The original vibes were funny, it's a shame...

6. [+583, -58] Did they drag this out for three weeks ㅋ

1. [+155, -5] Really looking forward to DBSK on 'I Live Alone'!!!

2. [+135, -3] DBSK ....... I'm fiercely welcoming DBSK to 'I Live Alone'!!!!!

3. [+129, -3] Wow.. DBSK really looking forward to it ^^^^^^^^

4. [+119, -3] I really like it.... I love you....

5. [+116, -3] Wow DBSK... making a variety show appearance around the same time as their comeback!! Really looking forward to it
