2015 was Amiciness’ debut year after expanding out from Tumblr. Honestly, I didn’t expect the blog to grow as fast as it did. After 525,600 minutes, the blog gained a couple of sponsors, 170 likes in Facebook, over 80,000 page views and almost 40,000 unique visitors. This blog is my “baby” project. Since blogs became a thing, I have always wanted to have my own and I have always been a frustrated writer. For some reason, I forgot to fulfil this dream. Maybe I felt that I was not ready or I could not sustain it because of school and eventually my day job. Finally, I decided to do it and commit. You won’t know if you’re ready for something unless you’d tried. This is Amiciness’ 2015 Year in Review.
2015 Year in Review
To celebrate 2015, here’s a recap of the posts that went “viral” (in my own definition) and those that were memorable to me as a blogger and pop culture fanatic.
For a Korean drama fanatic like me, one of the highlights of traveling to Korea is visiting Korean drama (or as we call it in the Philippines, Koreanovela) sets . Well, I’m a recovering Koreanovela fan. I try to avoid watching them because they make me stay up so late and my eye-bags can only handle so much. I also get attached to the characters and the stories that I find it hard to move on.
The Korean drama set I visited was none other than the 2014 hit series Man from the Stars (also known as My Love from the Star or You Who Came from the Stars). For those not familiar, the show’s main protagonist Do Min-joon (Kim Soo-hyun) is an alien waiting for centuries for a comet to bring him to his home planet. Fate brings him to Cheon Song-yi (Jun Ji-hyun), a beautiful but a bit nutty actress. I promise you, it’s a must-watch!
The set (one of the house sets used in the series) is located at Korea’s exhibition center, KINTEX (2) similar to the Philippines’ SMX Convention Center only so much bigger and wider. According to the print ads, the exhibition will be until August 2015. What are you waiting for? Go to KINTEX now!
