Anyhoo, this was the first series I've finished within the week: Coffee Prince. I know it's super late! It's just that it seems I needed to be sick, in order to relax.
커피프린스 1호점 or Coffee Prince is a fun romantic comedy about a spoiled rich dude, Choi Han Kyul (played by Gong Yoo) who mistakes Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun Hye) for a boy but falls in love with her anyway. I understand that Koreans are quite conservative when it comes to gay issues, which is why I applaud Coffee Prince for exploring the idea of love that knows no gender. That was quite brave. And apparently, it was a rather successful formula, since the show became tremendously popular in Korea that it had to extend by one episode.
I just felt so sorry for Choi Han Kyul. Can you imagine being so tormented by "forbidden" feelings in an ultra-conservative society? Looking at all the actors in this series, I'd be confused as well. Everyone's so pretty. Sheesh. Especially the waffle dude, Sun Ki (Kim Jae Wook).
What I couldn't get over, actually, was the fact that Choi Han Kyul looks so much like my former boss Mike Lagumbay. They have the same cute smile (eyes that disappear into mere slits, dimples that overpower the face).
I swear, the resemblance is so uncanny!! It actually made me wonder where Mike is now...
Anyway, since we're on Korean ground this very moment, I'd like to announce the winner for the first round of my Missha Giveaways. (Missha is one of the more popular Korean beauty brands and I've written about them in my BB cream review and the actual contest.)
Our winner is:
Congratulations, MommyLove Bytes ⎝⏠⏝⏠⎠!! Please PM me your mailing address so I could ship this to you. Although...I might be a little late in shipping it off because my eyes are still sore. People might resent that I'm still contagious. Haha!
Details of the participants and the draw can be found in this spreadsheet.

ADDITIONAL ENTRIES: I will put an extra entry (meaning your name will appear on the list twice) for those who spread the word about this contest through blogs and/or Facebook. Of course, I need to find out the URLs of your blog entries about this. Just put them on the comment fields below or tag Skysenshi's Hermitage if you're spreading the message via FB.
For those who have participated the first time around, you can re-Tweet, re-Plurk and re-post to FB. That would mean additional entries again on top of the entries you already gathered on the first round. Just make sure that you indicate here the NEW URLs of your re-postings. Thanks!
Some of the other peeps did the additional steps without doing the actual two requirements, so those weren't counted. Please make sure you do Steps 1 and 2 first before trying to enter using the additional steps. Thanks! =^.^=
If you encounter any real problems (like Ms. Melanie Magno), please don't hesitate to contact me so I can find solutions. I still have lots of items to dispatch so I suppose there's plenty of chances.
