I recommend listening to this song first:

 If you couldn’t listen to it entirely because of how many times the word “love” is sang, then this post might not be for you, your heart is probably two sizes too small. If, however, you loved the song as much as I do, or at least if your skin didn’t crawl because of all the “love love love”, then, please, read on.

Beside OdaJoe’s existence, what are you the most thankful for? What are the things that make you feel “rich”?

But then there’s a car accident in episode 1, he loses his memory, and ends up living with Bok Sil, a young woman that recently came to Seoul to look for her estranged brother after their grandmother, who raised them, passed away.

Splash Splash Love 퐁당퐁당 LOVE

Splash Splash Love is a 2 episodes Korean drama that aired on MBC in 2015. It was written and directed by Kim Ji Hyun, and stars Kim Seul Gi, Yun Du Jun, Ahn Hyo Seop and Jin Ki Joo. In that drama, a high school student called Dan Bi is about to take her university entrance exam, but is afraid she’ll fail and can’t take the pressure.

I like Kim Seul Gi.
