My Healthy, Happy Lifestyle 2017

Haha...Early this year 2017 I chance upon the 2 prosperous 'Choi Sen Ye' at Sunway Velocity Mall during my jewelry shopping for Dancing Diamond+Double Yellow Sapphires to welcome the new year with a sparkle bang. As it was a long queue with many shoppers waiting for their turns to get 'Angpow' from the God of Prosperity, I let go the chance for others to get those shopping/dining vouchers as I don't wana greed for that. But while waiting for Rambo to pay for the 0% installment payment, I saw another one coming from the right side and so I asked one of the sales associate to snap a picture for me as quick as possible. 

What a great luck I thought to myself to get the chance to take a nice picture with 2 auspicious Choy Sen Ye without any plans at all. And the queue keeps forming for a long queue like forever. I quickly left after everything's has been completed as I have many other places to go on that day. No matter how lucky and happy I was also that day with another Green Rooster among the other colours redeemed with the purchase, I still remind myself that I need to eat right, stay healthy in order to have a happy life. Not only I keep myself far, far away from illness and sickness even flu or cough also I begged them to stay a far distance from me in my everyday's life. As long I'm healthy, I know I'm able to achieve my golden dreams superbly and living happily everyday.

1. Water

Every morning, I start to perk up my life joyfully awake with a cup of aromatic good coffee. But before letting the coffee to function well inside my body for brain, heart and digestive system excellently, I would take a cup of water. The water can be alkaline from advance technology, mineral Cactus water or Cold Lemon Water up to my mood of the day. In fact every time I ordered my coffee of my choice of the day also, I will request for a cup of hot/warm water to hydrate back my body after indulging my favourite coffee, sometimes iced tea or hot tea but water is essential and also the best liquid to replenish sufficient 'liquidity' to all over my body.

Even China would explained the reason why taking pure, clean water like Alkaline helped a lot for health benefits before any other supplements to absorb. Even when you sip good premium Chinese Tea cost thousands of dollars, you need good water that's able to 'Pao' the superb tea for you to enjoy besides the very hot boiled water. In Thailand during my recent Phuket holiday also, I found that my White Coffee didn't taste as tasty as usual I enjoyed from my home sweet home because of the water quality.

Making coffee using Alkaline Water is tasty lot than using their no brand mineral water but I can't be traveling by bringing the whole machine with me right. That's why in Hunan, China when Sam asked me did I get those health supplements that most of them bought in which I had the 'Cha Duo Fen' from Jamie, I need not buy any of it because I already have the Alkaline Water Machine when they 1st started promoting it to the world. I even recommended it to many of my family and friends because it is the most important thing that you need to own for good health ahead.

Our bodies need about 70-80%(it's weird some cannot take too much water also) of water to function superbly, Some lack of water can go dehydrated easily, prone to fainting and headache miserably. To me, water is not my favourite drink at all but I know I needed it desperately to keep me moving, my organs to function orderly and to hydrate myself preventing from sore throat, cough and also thyroid problem that's prone to happen to both men and women too. In China, you'll see me taking a bottle of mineral water and Rambo's taking a flask of Green Tea to keep us hydrated during our hectic China holiday because China is so huge, you need to walk a lot like the marathon champion.

So invest a good Alkaline Water machine even if you don't have any cancer or tumour like my aunt also, you need clean pure water to keep you healthy for many years to come.

2. Exercise

No matter how busy and lazy Rambo and I with our busy schedules also, we make sure we went for a good swim for good exercise workout. Not only Swimming managed to garner the No.1 spot and score a perfect 10 among the other exercises listed under one health magazine I read many years ago, it's one of the best exercise that can burn about 700+ calories from your body to keep you slim and trim excellently. Yea, if you can't swim then you can do some aerobic exercise, yoga or cycle swim also that some of the resort hotels made at their pool. 

And if you can't get a nice, clean swimming pool to go for a swim then you can go jogging like Rambo. Jogging fell under No. 2 spot and he always feel good after a short run nearby but he didn't like to go for any run so I didn't wana force him also. For me, I prefer playing Badminton, Basketball, Netball or Volleyball but I can't join those friends who organised these games at Shah Alam. Too far for me, there's no way I wana braze myself going through all the jams, forgo my total peace for exercise that I can do from home like Yoga, another good exercise practise you can do anytime of the day.

3. Food

Malaysia is one of the country with the highest obesity rate in the world but can you really blame us for the great fortune that befalls us for that? The answer is No, because 'Sik Dak Hai Fuk' and as a Malaysian myself, I still think that Malaysia have tonnes of good food to boast about pridefully without a doubt. You name it, we have it, you only need to ask for it and you shall receive it too. Haha...It's not only applies to The Secret, Laws of Attraction but Malaysia is definitely the land of the Genie who can fulfill our magic calling spell for good food choices everywhere, from North Penang to South Johor. 

But no matter how much we can indulged in good food also, take everything in proportions based on the basic nutrients that we need only for our body moderately. Didn't mean I like Laksa or Nasi Lemak, I can take it everyday or 3 times a day, sot crazy meh. Remember to take health supplements like Multivitamins or drinking a bottle of Yakult a day keeps the doctor away is essentially important because sometimes the food intake that we took everyday can be harmful to our bodies so taking it may helped to boost up our immunity system and helped to absorb those vitamins that we cannot absorbed from the food that we take on that day. It's good to take your food with less oil, sugar or salt too.

Fried food like Chicken Chop, Keropok Lekor, Fried 'Yau Za Guai' Yu Tiao etc. with too much oil fried kinda food, you can only take it once in a blue moon. How often do you see a blue moon, no right so if you didn't get to see it then forget about it also. Only take it when you really chance upon it, buy one but split into 2 and share it with another buddy for enjoyment. At one time, I saw my Uncle Ta took one Fried Potato Wedges from my Mongolian Lambchop meal, my aunty stopped him and I laughed out loud because I think they're very sweet in their 60's to care for one another this way. If possible, indulge in nutritious soup be it double-boiled like Ah Yip Herbal Soup which is one of the best for its 'Bo Tau Kung Gam Liu', short of ingredients that sum up a complete meal for you on that particular day.

In fact, I did that all the time for Rambo too as I'm his Doctor and Pharmacist to make sure he took the medicine when he's sick as he tried to skip that after his meals, his Nutritionist to make sure he takes the basic nutrition of the day and his Gym Advisor also to make sure he exercise everyday no matter how busy he is. If that day he have Japanese Class, then he can still do 'Fing Sau' Flipping Hands from the Chinese Health method while revising his Japanese study that he attended earlier.
So long he exercise be it for Yoga, swimming etc., I'm totally fine with it with a peace of mind.

4. Medical Check Up

Every year Rambo and most of my family members would go for yearly medical checkup at Gleneagles Medical Centre or Pantai or even Prince Court where my Pharmacist Sis working these days. I lazy to go one but from time to time whenever my mom checked on her super duper high blood pressure or Rambo's high cholesterol level, they checked for me too. Since they wanted to play doctor game, let them be although I did check on it all the time. Usually mine is normal, record came with flying colours but I cannot guarantee also if there's anything wrong inside my body if anything go wrong one day. 

I'm still a human, not a Robot so I will go through 'Sang, Lou, Beng, Sei' (Birth, Aging, Sick, Die) like any other human being also. But while the others are sick, I was there nursing them caringly. Like Lynette who's very manja with me since her baby days, I kissed her and taught her to be strong of her mental health in getting well as soon as possible. The rest like my health-conscious Pharmacist Sis May who took Herbalife healthy supplements also got sick been 'Da Lem' got hospitalized recently, until admitted into ICU, scary dao my mom got so worried about her. 

My only advise for her is to take the magic Cellfood besides medical and family's care, prayers etc. for her. Like I always said, I can live my life without iphone that I left at home, shopping malls (Thank God many good samaritans returned it back to me because I did the same for others and Karma is maha berkuasa), but I never leave my handbag without my magical Cellfood Spray. Last CNY 2017, Da Jie also feel dizzy with red eyes got swollen like a 'Keong Si' Vampire with good mood also can become no mood for CNY liao.

Seeing her suffering in pain so pity, I took out my Cellfood Spray and told her to tahan a bit in terms of mentally and physically prepared as I would spray those precious 'Hou Ye' Water into her eyes. She had no choice to stand the pain also rather than going to suffer in pain with that bulging eyes. I counted 1, 2, 3 like a Nurse so that she's prepared when the sparying going to happen. She felt better, then she asked me to spray more for her and I did to help soothe her pain and sufferings. Then my Sis Toto also asked me to help spray her whole body because I used to do that for her whenever she had skin allergy, even Sis Hoon said she should get one spray for herself as this kinda allergy is no joke man.

Allergy can cause many chains of reactions in a bad way, can cause death too. I'm very lucky that Rambo found Cellfood from his Thai colleague who introduced him to take it many years ago during their leadership conference in Bangkok. It's Cellfood that has helped me to live up my life perfectly over the years. And I'm proud to say that I have managed to help many people to prolong their lives from getting 'Hoi Dou' going through many times of operations/surgeries like my Aunt WK from her ovary tumours, Aunt J as I told her no need to cut those cyst by taking Cellfood only and my Uncle Luck of his big tumour on his knee that burst out on his own naturally.

As simple as that, According to the Chinese traditional medical care existed thousand years ago, they never really recommended anyone to go through surgery or operation one unless it's too risky liao. Just like my Gu Jeong who's rich and healthy, suddenly doctor told him liver cancer and wait to die only because not everything can be cut and healed in this way. If you have Ovary Cancer, yes you can cut it all away but if you have Cervical Cancer Stage 3/4, you can't cut it away but leave it to rot and waiting to die only. That's why we need to go for a comprehensive medical checkup every year if possible for prevention is better than cure. 

5. Sleep

Sleep is equally important as breathing oxygen air. To me, it's 'Dai Guo Tin' in which the Chinese is very 'ging' in expressing their thoughts to show how important it is. Everyday, I make sure I sleep 8 hours a day without failed so that my body organs can rest, repair and rejuvenate superbly. In China if I need to wake up as early as 6 am disciplinary, I made sure I sleeps at 10pm to make the time. 

Let my body rest 'Gau Gau Hui', sufficient enough to process whatever their duties can be so that the next morning when I wakes up, I'm full with energy to focus on my holiday excitedly. Sleeping enough also helped very much to brighten up my good mood to feeling fantastic all day long. the last time my CEO friend got hospitalised also due to lack of sleep as I knew he only sleeps 3 hours a day.

No matter how motivated you can be to achieve your goals, you cannot torture yourself like this. Even if you have Insomnia where you have difficulty to sleep also, you need to try lie on the bed and let it rest by closing your eyes. That is why it's important to invest in good quality bed for a blissful sleep based on your back health condition or a lovely Silk Comforter under air-condition room like me who sleeps like a baby. 

6. Menstruation (For Women only)

During the few days menstruation period cycle every month, obviously I cannot visit Ecoparadise Spa for smooth blood circulation of my body, so the best thing I could do is dipping myself into hot bath tub for about 10 minutes only. Seeing the obvious red all over my body, I knew it's working already and used those good, the effective negative ion sanitary pad during the day till night. 

All the time I very 'Zi Zung' putting high priority in using the best quality sanitary pads that helped to ease the pain, keeping me clean, tidy and comfy at the same time. Thanks to one of Rambo's friend who is a man, didn't need to wear it but 'Ying Cau' entertaining other friends who are involved in the hot trendy MLM business doing health products. They're rich also so they see no up on petty things like pads and gave us 2 big boxes in which I think can last me up till reaching menopause also. 

Haha...No matter how leceh it can be, I always told my body system that they must come on time every month let say if it's on the 10th, then make sure you come on the 10th monthly. I was lucky my mental health is obedient enough to listen to me all these years without failed and pain. Jamie, my bestie have been going through years of treatment liao for irregular menstrual cycle where I told her, one month no come considered no good liao, what to say 2 or 3 months. 

Cannot go on like this so I encouraged her to go for health check, curing and healing it till regular only she can stop for it. Sometimes even when I have to attend any event/appointments also, I tried to negotiate with my brain and body to come afternoon after it ends. And it really happening to me many many time liao, sometimes during travel also no choice if it bumped or clashed with the same dates but still I wanted it to come on time punctually just to make sure I'm healthy there.

7. Spiritual Commitment

Everyone is a sinner, as we live each day we tend to make mistakes every now and then. To be a good person is not easy because sometimes you treat others good, not necessary they will treat you good or appreciate as much as you did for them. And who is daring to tell me that as a good person, you can be a saint all the time? There is no way let me tell you that because everyone are human beings, we have emotions and deep feelings over something we feel 'Gam Chuk' about.

Everyone also have stress, only depending on what level of stress you're handling and how you reacted to it only. You have stress, I also stress as we live each day especially when you meet crazy people or those who have mental depression but they think they're 'Dai Sai' just because they have it. Sorry, no one is owing you anything. If you're having bad mood that day, lock yourself up in the room, house or gold cage like Sis Toto always tease me who prefer to stay at my home for own praying or chanting time instead of joining them at temple. Many Buddhist organisations actually approached me to join them too but I prefer to practise it on my own, 

I find my own Zen peace of mind from doing meditation of my own. Even singing or chanting 'Ohm Mani Padme Hum' already blissful enough to keep me peaceful. It is important to have spiritual belief to keep you sane, focused in life and humble too. Even Rambo always encouraged his malay staffs to go mosque for Friday praying because they performed better at work. You can never buy 'Zen' total peace of mind using money but you can start cultivating it with the right attitude, staying calm and coll about it all the time.

8. Essential Oil

Besides enjoying the most trendy brand of Young Living Aromatherapy Treatment for relaxing Lavender scent before I sleep blissfully, I have enjoyed many other brands from all around the world over the years, Then I have this friend Eva who's in aromatherapy MLM business who shared and presented me one bottle of essential oil for face and body real luxuriously. Their products are superb and remained as one of the best among the rest that I have used over the years. Very natural, once you smell it you knew it's a good stuff that you need to spend hundreds or thousand dollars for the whole package like those I bought from Europe and theirs are also made from Europe be it Italy, France etc. I think it's totally worth it because it's purely essence of the flowers' bloom and it smells so good.

She also loves to travel to Europe on her own and always asked me to join her for many events including this MLM business too. After hearing her share with me her company's marketing plan, I told her no wonder she told me she wana gained 1 Million Dollar income, not just few hundred thousand dollars suffice to make her happy. It's definitely one of the best marketing plan I ever heard among the others and she agreed with me because she closed down all her 5 hair and beauty salons to do this MLM business. Besides paying high price for the products, part of it is to pay for their structural income and other perks too.But many others who have money and love to pamper themselves with aromatherapy real luxuriously, they're willing to spend that kinda money. 

Just like when Sis Toto 1st got introduced by her good friend who got to know Young Living also from their wealthy living homes, for me is all the while I'm using it but trying another brand brings no harm to me. But it's definitely expensive than many other brands but after you start using Young Living, other brands didn't seemed to smell nice anymore. I also love applying those natural essential oil all over my body everyday to envelop myself with deep hydration and uplifting the total luxury of my body, mind and soul sensationally. Buy those natural ones like Satira brand from Thailand, smells heavenly divine and luxury without putting a big hole in your pocket.

9. Stress Free

Some people find solace through dining or wining, shopping, traveling, running, singing, dancing etc. to destress at the end of the day. Some like my sister Defney teased my Monkey Sis Shyan who loves to talk a lot among the 6 sisters that made us all LOL hysterically because only by talking a lot, she feels happier lot. So the 5 of us always let her talk all she wanted, I LOL more than talk but still voice out my opinion and thoughts whenever it's necessary. The 6 of us are very united one, we love and care about each other as sisters very 'Kam Ching'ly even when they're based in overseas also, we still video chat every Saturday evening without failed.

Some likes to shop like nobody's business, to the extent like my bestie she would rather shop for makeups than going for yummy lunch unless Auntie Maureen bought us lunch at Sydney Casino. I always taught her to spend money in balance ways for years liao since we're 13 years old. You can shop yet still need to allocate some money spent for good food also and so yes, she loves indulging Coffee Bean Mocha Ice Blended together with me whenever we had gatherings together. Some prefer to shop for branded goods so skip all the lunches/dinners just to save money for that. Some love to go traveling, die die also save every penny she could so she can fly to her dreamy holiday passionately. 

Some prefers to buy property, save every dollars into paying bank mortgages, taxes like forever esp. nowadays the government like to implement this tax lah this year, that tax lah next year so pening kepala dibuatnya. Orang kaya also can jadi miskin papa kedana if going on like this. Last February fuel price hike already raised 20 cents, then they dare to compare us with other countries that raised 50 cents with us. OMG, how much they earned and how much we're earning here in Malaysia? Not even balance of our GDP growth, how to compare us both? Not fair and tally also. Back to my story line here, some save every cents and dollars but never even wana spend a dime on it because he feels song gila by admiring his FD certs everyday.

10. Success/Achieving Golden Dreams (Working or Business Ventures)

Haha...In this world, macam macam kerenah of people and everyone have their own thoughts and planning to live their lives happily ever after. If Plan A makes you happy, by all means go for it and stay focused on your plan strongly and firmly ever. After completing my projects for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter wonderfully, I would go for Spring Holiday to rest, relax and recharge my battery back to full energy level fantastically. There's always Plan B or C for improvement. 

Most of my travel holidays I met with people like Jenny in my last Europe holiday who stay quite close with me it's very rare to meet someone humble like me. The reason why both of us can stayed close during the trip is they're good people and I believe good vibes are created from the postive energies that we're surrounded with all the time. It's very important to mix and stay close with great minds, good people to exchange superb ideas among us, uplifting each other and improving our lives
to greater, further heights besides able to share our creative insights with others to grow also.

Humble also keeps us sane, back to reality world where materialism should be put away to judge a person's success. Didn't mean you're loaded with money and wealthy, you can speak louder than the others or said anything to downgrade the others. Being rich and famous didn't mean you can judge the others like you're more superior than the others. Not only Buddhism Teachings taught us to stay humble all the time, humble can helped you go a long way straight up to the top more easily that's for sure. Humble makes you look beautiful and wonderful in any way, any angle by being your true self.

Before I ended this Health related blog based on my true life stories so that you can stay as healthy and happy like me, I wanted you to know that life is short so live life to the fullest you can everyday. If you wanted to achieve your golden dreams successfully, you need to learn how to love yourself before you can afford to love the others lovingly. Take things easy sometimes because I see many people who got sick usually are having 'Sem Beng' (love hate sickness) that sometimes derived from your own bad reaction to it. 

You cannot change what other people think or perceive of you or said anything about you, you only need to learn how to let go and let karma take its place only. I know there are many people who like to create rumour, gossiping and condemning the others so that they can looked better than you but then, it didn't worked that way actually. People who did that are usually losers, forever behind your back and will never succeed in their lives even if they looked happy but in actual of fact, if they're happy they will not backstabbed you from behind like two-headed snake. That's life, remember to stay healthy before you can enjoy your life real happily by doing good deeds whenever you can. Xoxo, Jacinta!

My Busy February 2017 Updates

No matter how busy I was for MIFF 2017 also, I managed to drag myself to Dr.Ko
Specialist Media Launch to get the latest updates of Aesthetic Beauty so that I
won't get 'Tou Tai' out from the whole picture of today's beauty world since the
90's. To them, beauty is everything & they would go all out to look as beautiful, 
youthful as they can be. They think it's a worthy, necessity investment to make!   

Another reason also because I have many family and friends who are willing to spend or invest
a lot of money on aesthetic beauty costing thousands of dollars at local or overseas for beauty
enhancements be it face, body etc.despite the pain that they can endured during the painful
treatment. They even asked me which clinic that I trust to recommend to them and I usually asked
what's their budget which they replied me no money issue as long the end result is guaranteed!

Hada Labo’s New & Improved Lifting & Firming Range Will Awaken Skin's Youthfulness

For many women, turning 30 signals a time to truly consider the best-suited skincare for their skin. It is a time to choose wisely a skincare range that is targeted at skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and collagen. Formulated to restore youthful radiance to the skin, the new and improved Hada Labo Lifting & Firming Range does just that. 

This improved formula targets the epidermis layer to realize youthful skin with firmness and resilience. Die die also I made it that fateful afternoon to attend the Japanese beauty event at Roofino Sky Dining, KL Trillion in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which is also the latest sky dining place you can check out when you're coming to this area. The food was good and even the Raspberry Juice specially blended for this Hada Labo event was juicy+yummy too and last but not least, the breathtaking hilly mountain views to die for perfect pictures here. 

The two key ingredients in the new and improved Hada Labo Lifting & Firming range are Hydrolyzed Elastin and Hydrolyzed Collagen, which work together at cell level to create skin strength, firmness, and shape. The Elastin and Collagen are both essential to maintain skin firmness and elasticity. This range is also infused with Elasgrow and Fermented Soymilk, an exclusive ingredient to boost collagen and elastin production that helps improve skin density, firmness and elasticity to keep skin visibly tighter, firmer and more lifted.

This new and improved range is also upgraded with 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid to help deeply hydrate skin from the surface to the inner skin layers for a significantly soft, smooth and supple skin. It also contains powerful anti-oxidants properties to fight against the damaging effects of free radicals. In my last Japan Kyushu Island holiday, I saw this Hada Labo Red Hung Dong Dong packaging lining up prettily at most of the pharmacies, I told Rambo I'm gonna need this full range of skincare very soon and I was so glad my dreams do come true so soon at the perfect timing in 2017. Haha...I love it and I especially needed the new Anti-Wrinkle Care Cream to smoothen the fine lines around my eye and lip areas so desperately. 

The Hada Labo Lifting & Firming range is comprised of 6 distinct products:
Lifting & Firming Lotion – Rich (RM 67.50)
Lotion is an essential first step after cleansing. It helps to awaken skin and drives moisture deep into the inner skin layers to prepare skin to fully receive the benefit of the next skincare regime that follows. For best results, use twice daily after cleansing. Gently pat the lotion onto the face until thoroughly absorbed.

Lifting & Firming Milk (RM 70.90)
A light-weight milk that easily penetrates deep into skin to restore youthful radiance and luminosity, leaving skin visibly firmer and smoother. This can be applied twice daily after lotion / essence application. Gently pat onto the face until thoroughly absorbed.

Lifting & Firming Cream (RM 78.00)
This velvety cream melts into the skin to provide an intense nourishment to strengthen and improve the skin’s youthfulness, leaving skin visibly lifted, firmer and more luminous. After applying lotion / essence, take a sufficient amount and apply evenly on the face and neck area. Gently massage and pat to allow absorption into the skin.

Lifting & Firming Wrinkle Care Cream (RM 74.90)
A rich and nourishing cream that is designed to treat age sensitive contours around the lips and eyes. Regular usage of the Wrinkle Care Cream will leave the lines looking finer and smoother, revealing a plumper, more youthful and renewed skin texture. Use this twice daily after moisturizing. Gently dab onto wrinkle prone areas such as the forehead, eyes and lip area.

Lifting & Firming Mask (RM 52.90)
A serum-soaked mask enriched with anti-aging ingredients to deeply hydrate the skin and restore the skin’s youthful vitality. This soft cloth mask is designed with the right thickness to fit the face perfectly. Upon application, skin feels instantly revitalized, lifted and smoother. The Lifting & Firming Mask can be used once or twice a week as part of your skincare regime.

Lifting & Firming Essence (RM 89.90)

It also contains Soybean Extract to help improve skin elasticity and boost collagen and elastin in the skin to reveal firm and youthful skin. The Lifting & Firming Essence is formulated with High Performance Penetrating & Deep Moisturizing (HPP&M) Technology which has an active delivery system to drive moisture deep into skin to fully hydrate skin from the surface to the inner skin layers. This also works to prepare skin to receive the full benefits of skincare that follows. For best results, use after Hada Labo Lifting & Firming Lotion. Apply on palms and gently pat onto face until thoroughly absorbed.

Saimdang, Korea’s highly-anticipated series set to Premiere in Malaysia

Making a comeback after a 13-year small-screen hiatus, Lee Young-ae takes centre stage in Saimdang, Oh!K’s latest period drama. A love story set across time about the life of historical Korean figure – Shin Saimdang, the series will premiere with double episodes simultaneously with Korea on 26 January 2017 (Thursday) at 9pm, exclusively on Oh!K (Astro Ch 394). Fans will be able to catch new episodes every Wednesday and Thursday at 9pm. I'm doing my best to catch this Korean highly-anticipated series too once I have completed my Summer Projects in hand.  

Lee Young-ae first gained international recognition in 2003 for her performance in the award-winning television series, Jewel in the Palace. The series which is currently airing on Oh!K was exported to 91 countries, increasing the Korean pop-culture phenomenon abroad. Yea, because of Jewel in the Palace TV series and Rambo's infatuation towards Lee Young-ae's great acting skill, we finally decided to travel to Korea for Winter Holiday after watching the whole series. Haha...We visited many places all around Korea and we even flew to Jeju Island by Korean Airlines for winter snow escapade.

Set in both the Joseon era and present day, Saimdang weaves a story of fact and fiction, uncovering the life of this unconventional 16th century Korean woman. In an interesting twist, Lee Young-ae is set to play both roles of the female lead in past and present - as Seo Jiyun, a part-time university lecturer and Shin Saimdang herself. The story opens when Seo Jiyun discovers the diary of Shin Saimdang in Italy, and goes on to uncover the secrets about a mystery painting she finds inside.

Acting alongside Lee Young-ae is Korean heartthrob Song Seung-heon (East of Eden, Autumn in My Heart). After a break of three years, he returns to the screen in his first period drama as Lee Gyeom, Shin Saimdang’s love interest. In Saimdang, viewers can expect to see a different side to the actor.

Be sure to catch the double-episode premiere of Saimdang, same time as Korea on 26 January 2017 (Thursday) at 9PM exclusively on Oh!K (Astro Channel 394). New episodes air every Wednesday and Thursday at 9PM. For more information on Oh!K and its programmes, you can visit the Oh!K Website or the Oh!K Facebook page

An intertwined journey of Jiyun (Starring Lee Young-ae), a university lecturer of Korean art in the present, and Shin Saimdang herself in the past comes alive in this brand new series. After Jiyun stumbles upon the diary of historical figure Shin Saimdang, she becomes intrigued by a mysterious portrait that she finds inside of it. Looking to discover the history behind the picture, she takes it upon herself to locate the real portrait and through this, Saimdang’s love and life story awakens.

Meet the Main Cast
Lee Young-ae (Plays Seo Jiyun and Shin Saimdang)
Lee Young-ae is a well-known actress in the Korean entertainment scene. She began her career through a role in an advertisement in 1991, with Andy Lau. In 1995, she went back to school to pursue her favourite subject – acting.

After 10 years, since her appearance in the hit drama Jewel in the Palace, Lee Young-ae is finally returning to the screens.

Through her highly praised acting skills in Jewel in the Palace, she created a global craze for Korean dramas. In 2007, she received the Medal of Culture Merit from the South Korean government for her contribution to the Korean wave.

In Saimdang, Lee Young-ae takes on a double role in the series. She plays Seo Jiyun, the mother of a precocious eight-year-old son and a Korean art history lecturer at a university. When she comes across an old book in Italy suspected of being Saimdang’s memoirs, she gets swept up in the whirlwind of destiny.

She also plays Shin Saimdang, the woman who writes “the Sujinbang Diary” that Seo Jiyun discovered. She is an artist with an extraordinary sense of colour.

Song Seung-heon (Plays Lee Gyeom)
Song Seung Heon is an instantly recognisable South Korean actor. Wooed by many for his chiselled good looks, Song Seung Heon began his career as a model for the jeans brand STORM.

He broke into acting with the 1996 television sitcom Three Guys, Three Girls, and a very successful acting career followed.

His popularity increased tremendously with the 2000 drama Autumn in My Heart which made him one of the most recognised Hallyu stars and much sought-after actor.

Song Seung Heon has since starred in many popular films and dramas, including East of Eden (2008), My Princess (2011), Dr. Jin (2012), When a Man Loves (2013).

In Saimdang, he takes on the role as Lee Gyeom, a free-spirited boy who was locked in a prison disguised as a home. He was a man who never stopped loving Saimdang and stayed devoted to her all his life. He was the Joseon version of a chivalrous man who treasured even the shadow of the woman he loved.
