Dinner & A Movie: 14 Days of Love 5

Love Quote ~ Reply 97

Korean Drama Quote from Reply 97

Those smooth sounds that you hear coming through the speakers is none other than the soulful, Brown Eyed Soul, with My Everything.  It’s such a treat to have a Korean Group that gives me the same feels as one of my favorite American groups, Boyz II Men.  Sit back and enjoy with us on our 5th Dinner and A Movie.

Dinner & A Movie: 14 Days of Love 5

Please click menu names to be taken to recipe links

We decided to switch up our menu and go Japanese. Since dating my hunnie, I have gotten more into Japanese and Korean food due to the fact that he is of a Korean and Japanese mixed background. Tonight’s main course, Beer Beef Stew with Bacon and Shimeji Mushrooms, comes from Humble Bean blog and it’s an actual Japanese meal even though it doesn’t have the usual Japanese ingredients.  As a side dish, we added a Corn Porridge also from the Humble Bean blog.  It’s supposed to be a chilled porridge but we prefer it hot but that is strictly your choice. Keeping in the Japanese theme, we ordered sake (rice wine). You will notice two different bottles in the picture and that is true to life because those are the favorite brands that we drink. Yeobo will not drink the Sayuri brand because he says it’s for girl’s cause it’s a pink bottle and a pinkish color. So he drinks the Hiro brand. {rolls eyes} He says it’s pronounced Hero but I have serious doubts but  since I don’t know any Japanese away from what he has taught me, I’ll let him have his BS moment.  As a sweet way to top the night off, we are eating a few slices of the Kasutera(Japanese Honey Spongecake)

Virgin Snow

I shouldn’t want to see one more piece of snow because these past few weeks, snow has attacked us furiously but we are talking Lee Jun Ki in the 2007  Korean movie, Virgin Snow.  I have already shoveled a lot of snow what’s a little more to see a young Lee Jun Ki before he became the cause of many women to fangirl and pant at his grown up swag.

StoryLine

 Min moves to Japan following his professor father. One day at a local shrine, he meets a beautiful Japanese girl with innocent eyes. Her name is Nanae, and she is an aspiring painter. Min falls for her at first sight, and soon learns that Nanae attends the same school to which Min has just transferred. They become friends, and despite the culture and language barriers it is an intense friendship. When his grandmother suddenly falls ill, Min hastily returns to Korea but can’t get in touch with Nanae beforehand. After his grandmother regains her health, he hurries back to Japan to reunite with Nanae, but she is nowhere to be found. Had his true feelings for Nanae not been clear to her? Why has Nanae disappeared without a word? ~IMDb

Thoughts

It’s a very simple story that tells about love transcending through culture and language barriers.  It’s emotions range from funny, cute and sad.  If you are an emotional person as I am, you will be choked up during this movie but don’t expect this movie to be a great awesome 10 because it’s not. Don’t expect much but a simple story of finding and losing love.
