Feeding the Korean Addiction

Image
Korean series somehow succeed in making me get attached to them. Watching ‘Mary stayed out all night’ presently and I am already emotionally attached to all the main characters. All the characters are complicated; they are spoilt in certain ways, vulnerable, and are not what they seem at the surface. Fate and destiny has taken a toll on each of their lives. Life has not been just enough. Kang moo kyul- the main hero of the series, has never experienced parent’s love by the sense of the word. His mother gave birth to him when she was 17, when she was a child herself and ever since he spent his childhood living at various relatives. And even now he sees to the whims and fancies of his immature mother who just demands ice cream and kimchi and money every time. On the surface he seems a cool indie band lead vocalist with his guitar; girl swooning over him and a typical playboy who rejects no girl but also doesn’t extend a relationship more than a month. But in reality he is deep; an emot…

Bows N Arrows

Recently I have developed a strange liking towards archery. The bow and arrow appear as a symbol of a free spirited, independent and brave person who can fend for herself. I had loved Susanne in Narnia, when she rode on horses that were faithful and loyal to her and attacked enemies efficiently with her bow n arrow. The way she held the bnow in her left hand, arms straight and brought the arrow from the case behind her with the right hand and aimed the target with unwavering eyes, and eventually release it (N the arrow flies- hits the target – with precision)—the whole process seems so graceful. Ah! Love it! Heart it! Beauty with brains!






I really adored Katniss in The Hunger Games. Be it whenever she hunted for feeding her family or in the arena, trying to stay alive, I felt proud of her.i connected with her so well.while Susanne was fantasy, Katniss was very urban, and Scarlet- ancient.



Scarlet’s love of bow and arrow (apart from daggers) was a part of her need of hunting and self defe…

Archers of Avalon by Chelsea Fine

Image
Completed reading ‘Avow’ yesterday. The last book in the Archers of Avalon series. Best series this year-2012. Well, my 2010 best favorite was the Twilight series, then 2011 fav.was Divergent. Now 2012 fav is Chelsea Fine’s Archers of Avalon series. Loved it, really!! How can all the three books in the series be so equally good!! Got to know that it’s going to be made into a television series.O.M.G.O.M.G!!!Can’t wait...so, so eager to watch Tristan and Scarlet on screen. I really loved all the characters- Gabriel, Nate (Nathaniel Fletcher) and Heather was also equally lovable, though the main focus was on Scarlet and Tristan- our very own Scar and her Hunter.
Loved the comic relief brought by Nate and Heather. Their dialogues were so good; you would want to laugh your stomach out and blush at the same time. The way Nate warned Tristan and Scarlet to keep a ten meter distance between each other so that they don’t accidentally trip over and fall on each other- awkward- you can’t help b…
