    COUPLES DAYS12 days of fun lovingDid you know that mid-month is a day for couples in Korea? I just found this out.

  • K-Drama Feature: Sideline Romances

    October 3, 2014 @ 6:47 pm

    April 10, 2014 @ 3:05 pm

    EMERGENCY COUPLE EPISODE 21 (final episode)It is the very last episode of Emergency Couple. Few events can compare to the end of a series you've followed for awhile.
