Stop over

Since we are having a brief stop-over in Norway, I have decided to share a Norwegian song.
I first discovered Kurt when he was in the Norwegian IDOL back in 2003.
Here's the song Everything!
Enjoy! ^^

Heading North West!!

In a few hours my cousin and I will be heading off to the Nordic country in the North West, Iceland!
We are going to Reykjavik for a long weekend!
I have no expectations, I'm just gonna go.. relax and find out the rest over there!

I'm looking forward to their hotsprings, maybe horse riding and aurora sightseeing!!
But it's all about the weather, we'll see what's gonna happen!

It's the very first time for us to go there (^^)
Happy thoughts and happy long weekend!!

My past week on a bicycle

The past week I have found myself a lot on a spinning bicycle instead of a cross trainer.
I donno why but I get cramps when I run on the CR.
So I think I did pretty well last week, I also counted last Monday... 
My total distance became 153.4 km!!

I feel pretty pleased although I think I could have done better in some of the training sessions!
However I do think I need a rest, Last Monday after 30 min I thought my legs were gonna fall off due to the strength it takes to ride the stupid bike!! Also, I did it two days in a row.
Anyway, I will have a rest now for a few days as I go to Iceland tomorrow!
But before that I have one more PT session!!!

This is love

I donno, but I think I have out of love of Super Junior.
Lately every time I hear that they will release something new I get excited, but when I hear it I get sad. I know I saw that Mamacita was a great album. it's true, however there's something about their title tracks.

I like the boys in this video, that's why I share it. ^^

What do you think? Love it? So-So? Hate it?

Shut Up!

I saw that this was uploaded onto DaeSung's and YGs Youtube channel.
Although the song is kinda cheesy, I like it ^^
But for some reason Daesung starts to look like Kis-My-Ft2's Fujigaya Taisuke, maybe it's the time in Japan that made him like this??

Here's Shut Up!

BBQ buffet in Stockholm!

Last Saturday I first spent time at the Korean embassy, listening to presentations about the Korean movie industry. It was interesting but too short. I wanted to know more.
Anyway, afterwards.. Alex and I went for dinner. We had already decided on "Korean BBQ".
When we came to the restaurant, called Asahi, it was pretty much empty, only one more couple.
We decided to have the full BBQ buffet with both meats and seafood.
It was really nice and we have a nice chat about this and that ^^

Last time I was there was in July, then I had hot-pot.
I'm not sure which one was better. I like both!!
It kinda felt like being in Korea in one way, but being home in Sweden in another.
I guess I missed the kimchi and "banjeons" (aka side dishes)

I'd say that this is one of the best BBQ places for an affordable price
I'll visit this place again!! Not sure when.. but ;)

You gave me love

I found this by chance, I had never heard of Macy Kate before, but I really like this song!
I like both music and lyrics, The lyrics of the song really says and means a lot to me right now!!!


에스(S) - Autumn Breeze

Over a decade since Kangta, Lee Ji Hoon and Shin Hye Sung teamed up as Group S, Now they are coming back together!
It was one of my fave units during my teens, although it was brief, I love it and I have wanted day to come for so many years now. I think we all have been patient
This trio is known for their heart-melting voices. And this mini album is great!! They have aged and it's new music but it takes me back 11 years!
My fave song on this album is the forth track, 세상 속으로, it's something about the music and lyrics that are just magic! My second fave is the title track, 하고 싶은 거 다. But yes in all... all songs are great!! I want to see more of them in the future!!
Well done guys, You have been missed!!!!


01. 하고 싶은 거 다 (Without You)
02. 내려놓기 (One Last Memory)
03. 세상 속으로 (Utopia)
04. 이런 어느 날 (One Fine Day)
05. Secret Letter

I listened a lot to Nik &Jay back in the days, and the other day I listened to this.
Yes, they have grown a lot over the years, still it's N&J.
I like that they still sing in Danish. Also that they are still active!! I think I heard them the very first time in 2002.


Sky's The Limit

It has been a few months since previous single from V6. This one is for Miyake Ken's drama "ほっとけない魔女たち". I cannot believe they are heading towards their 20th anniversary!!! And this is their 44th single! Of course they have gotten older, but look at Ken-chan!!he still looks like he's 17 ^^
I haven't really followed V6 for quite some time now, I listen to their singles, but as for everything else, I have no idea. I used to follow them a lot more during my teens.

Back to the single, I'd say that the first time I heard song I felt, "waaaah... this is so V6", it almost feels like going back to the 90's ^^ The more I listen to it, the more pumped I get, it's a good beat for my spinning sessions at the gym! I actually like all songs on this single, all are very V6 like, the rhythm of the songs screams V6. If you know them and listen you'll understand what I'm trying to say. The voices are mixed very nice, however there are sometimes where I'd like to switch, like Morita should sing instead of Ken-chan, or Nagano instead of Sakamoto. The other songs have their individually and together as a single they matches well!  WELL DONE!!

I wonder how their 20th anniversary will be (^^;;)

The Most Epic Safety Video

I'm not a fan of the Lord of the Rings or Hobbit, but who has missed out on this one?
 Air New Zealand launched this onto their YT channel a few days ago.
It's called The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made #airnzhobbit.
I think all LOTR and Hobbit fans will be overjoyed when watching this^^

Yesterday was the opening of Tokyo International Film Festival, many various notable and celebrities attended.
Among them Arashi and Japanese Prime minister Abe.

Prime minister Abe repeated the country’s ‘Cool Japan’ culture and tourism pitch and joshed with five part boy-band Arashi, who were dressed like the PM in sharp, dark suits. He also said “I hope some of their popularity rubs off on the government”.

To read the full story go here...Variet's original article

After 11 years, Group S is finally coming back!!
The title track is called 하고 싶은 거 다 (Without You), 하고 싶은 거 다 means All I want to do.
I'm so excited, I loved this trio although their activity didn't last for too long!
Just by looking and listening to this track makes me even more excited!!! I cannot wait until the cd release, some time in November!!!

In search of freedom

Last week i met Kim Eun Ju or Kim Eun Sun as she is more known as...the author of the book "North Korea - 9years escaping hell".Today I saw/heard this speech, i agree people and media talk about the regime and Kim Jong Un's presence in public. But what about the North Korean people?!The ones without any human rights, being the victims of being born in the wrong country!?

Having left N.Korea doesn't mean freedom in the way you and I imagine it!

Payback is GOLD!!

Finished this week's first PT session last Monday.
This time we had a new workout session with moves I haven't really done before.
So what did we do?? Well... we started off with lots of boxing and martial arts moves (something like the picture above...). I still doubt it's in my blood.
Exhausting like nothing else but fun to kick and hit my PT..payback is GOLD

There's a new drama season now, and one of them I will try to follow is this one... Dear Sister starring Ishihara Satomi. I'm kinda keen on the story so I hope it will be nice, it started last Thursday so I hope I can catch up!
I wonder what the secrets could be? (^^;;)

Title: ディア・シスター (Dear Sister)
Episodes: TBD

Air time: Thursday 22:00
Theme song: Happiness by Che'Nelle

27-year-old Fukazawa Misaki and 29-year-old Hazuki are sisters who are polar opposites in both lifestyle and personality. Although they would hurt each other's feelings, they would also make up for each other’s deficiencies. The beautiful Misaki is the typical younger sister who is good at putting on the little girl act. She did not fare well academically but knows how to swim with the tide. After graduating from high school, she left home and went missing. But one day, she suddenly moves into Hazuki's apartment and behaves with wild abandon. However, Misaki has a secret which she keeps to herself... Hazuki works at a ward office and has set her sights on an early marriage to her boyfriend who works in the same office. She is the well-organised, fastidious chairperson type, but is a wee bit socially awkward. Hazuki feels that Misaki snatched all their mother's love in childhood. What will happen now that Misaki has moved in with her? Hazuki actually has a secret which she cannot tell Misaki too. As these two sisters clash while living under the same roof, their values start to change little by little...

I finally made it passed 35 km.
Last Sunday when I went to the gym my aim was to reach over 35km in 60 min.

And I did it!!! I was so happy and kinda pissed I didn't do 36km. only 35.9 km XD
I know, I'm never satisfied. But I guess that's what makes me get going!!
Will try to ride the spinning bike even longer tomorrow ^^

Kana-chan is back with a new single!
It's a cute ballad about love..and life ^^ The promotion video is super cute and this is a typical Kana-chan song!? Nothing beats Sayonara in my opinion, but I like this the most of all her singles this year!! I'm excited to listen to the new album that comes out next month!!!


01. 好き
02. Never Know
03. I Say No


I found this drama by chance, I haven't watched a Taiwanese drama for quite some time and this seemed like typical TW drama to be honest. And yes I know it's a work of TW and mainland China.
Anyway, as I used to be a Mike He fan I thought I'd give it a chance.
I might fast forward, I think I know what's gonna happen anyway (^^;;)
I wonder if I can find a version without the voices being dubbed. I hate that with Chinese speaking dramas!!!

Sporting challenge for North Face store visitors

Shoppers in S. Korea faced a terrifyingly hilarious marketing stunt by brand The North Face and agency Innored. They titled this "Never Stop Exploring".
Shoppers at this pop-up North Face store were startled when the floor slowly began to disappear, and they were forced to grab on to the walls, which "just" happened to have rock-climbing holds attached to them. ^^ Climbing on for their lives in shock, a tv screen was turned on and a text appeared, You have 30 sec to grab onto the jacket and it will be yours for free. And the clock started to ticking. The still terrified customer had panic in their eyes as they had to take on the challenge.

Very terrifying indeed but fun as well... take a look at the video below.
I wish I would have had been one of them ^^

ザ・デジタリアン (Review)

I got my hands on it already, despite release date is on Wednesday!!! I got the LE but I was able to find the RE track, written by Sho-chan too! I might buy RE in Japan in Dec just because..haha

Arashi is back with their 15th anniversary original album titled THE DIGITALIAN (ザ・デジタリアン). The more I listen to it the more sad I get as I was unable to get tickets for their upcoming tour. I think the light effects will be something else!!!gaaaah... why!?
Oh well back to the review.Every since they announced this album and what music would be featured I think the discussions have been many and long, now we finally know! This album contains a lot of new sound and mixes that we haven't really seen from them before. Still in the album Arashi shines through! I like this style a lot, and the fact that they can pull it off! I also love that they have ballads too.
Zero-G gets to me more and more, it makes me super "Genki", Asteisk that kind of song, these are songs I'll play a lot at the gym ^^
My absolute fave song on this album is the track called Hope in the darkness. I fell for it as soon as the into started and the love grew stronger the more I listened to it! I love both music and lyrics!! I can't wait to see them performing this song!!!
Other fave songs are Zero-G (Obviously - it's stuck in my brain), Tell me why, already released 誰も知らない, キミの夢を見ていた, and One Step.

As for the solos, let's begin in the order the appear, I have said it before and I say it again, despite having Sho-chan as my ichiban, I always look forward to hear Riida's solo the most. This solo is a very typical Riida song?! I think we'll see a great Riida choreography for this. The lyrics is so so though. Not as great as I wished. But not bad!
Aiba-chan's, I'm not surprised, the tile Disco Star says quite a lot, and the songs kinda reminds me of Magical song...Or is it only me?!I think children is gonna rock to this one at kindergarten..haha
Matsujun's Stay Gold - This is a typical up-tempo song that screaaaaaaaaaams Matsujun! It fits him perfectly. I wonder what kind of awesome performance he'll do! I think this is one of the best Matsujun solo songs!!!
As for Nino's, I give him cred for creating it but sorry, it's not my cup of tea at all. I'm actually kinda disappointed in so many ways I cannot even put in into words. I donno why but I think the other solos he has released over the past years have left me with a MUCH bigger impact.
And finally my Arashi ichiban - Sho-chan, The song is awesome, my fave solo in this album. It's fit's Sho-chan so well, I can see him march out on stage making all fans super genki! It's a great song to wake up! This suits him well and it's not difficult to fall in love with!

To finish off with the bonus track - This is also a song I will play at the gym..haha
It's easy to guess that Sho-chan wrote it, I can also imagine the Domes' around Japan go loud and high to this song!! The lyrics and music is a perfect Arashi tune, Sho-chan... you've done VERY WELL. A+++++++++ (^^;;)

1. Zero-G
2. Wonderful
3. Tell Me Why
4. Asterisk
5. Imaging Crazy
6. GUTS!
7. Disco Star
8. 誰も知らない
10. Stay Gold
11. Bittersweet
12. メリークリスマス
13. キミの夢を見ていた

More biking

I so wanted to finish 35km, but no.. I only made 34.7 km in 60 min!!
1 km more than last time!
This time I blame the woman who came and interrupted me while biking!!
Those 5 min she took made me miss out on 300 meters!!
Why did she have to ask me questions and NOT listen to my answers, when she CLEARLY had no idea what she was doing on the bike!!!

Oh well... I should be able to make it next time!!
I hope (^^;;)

Or maybe it's just an excuse?


Flower released a new music video last week.
I really like this song and video theme.
The song is called Akikaze no Answer... meaning The answer of the autumn wind.

L♥DK (鄰居同居)

I saw the trailer earlier this year, I thought.. SO typical Japanese ^^
Anyway i saw it a few days ago, and it was kinda predictible. I mean from the trailer, see below, you can all guess what's gonna happen.
So no surprises there. Anyway it was nice to see a movie where I didn't need to put any effort into it!!
A typical girl teenage movie?!


Title: L♥DK (鄰居同居/Rinkyo Dōkyo) Love cohabitation
Release date: Apr 12, 2014
Country: Japan

Shūsei Kugayama, the "Prince" of his high school, has a reputation of turning down confessions from admiring girls; Aoi Nishimori takes offense after he turns down her best friend, Moe Shibuya. Later that day, Aoi is greeted by her new apartment neighbor which turns out to be Shūsei! After a kitchen fire accident ruins Shūsei's apartment, Shūsei decides to move into Aoi's flat, but becomes more casual and friendly towards her at school. After getting to know him better, Aoi falls in love with him, although he does not initially return that feeling. Meanwhile, they must keep their cohabitation a secret. Aoi tries to divert the girls who are interested in Shūsei, the guys who are interested in her, and family members who reveal hints about Shūsei's past. The two eventually come to fall in love with one another.

The album is said to be released in 4 different versions - Limited Edition A, Limited Edition B, Regular Edition, and TakiTsuba SHOP Edition!

Yesterday I was told something like 「ARASHI LIVE TOUR 2014 THE DIGITALIAN」チケットもお取りすることができませんでした。Which means I lost the ballot for this year's tour. Although it wasn't a big surprise, I still felt sad and a depressing feeling came over me. I donno but I felt sad for the rest of the day. I guess I wanted to go this year really bad, despite knowing the chance of getting tickets would be like one in a million (T_T)

Oh well.. I can't keep on sobbing, at least I will be able to get some goods, but well..being inside the dome, listening and see them live again would have had been a PERFECT Christmas surprise.

My dad joked and said he'd cancel his flight ticket to Japan, he too wanted to go.
Last year, for LOVE tour, he wasn't able to attend, I had a super great time. I guess I should keep that memory with me!!!

소녀시대 - 디바인

I feel like I missed this, it was released last month but I heard it just a few days ago.
Oh well.. kinda weird without Jessica now but nevermind that now.
I like this song a lot so here it is ^^

A few days ago one of my friends in Japan asked me when I'd go to Osaka.
I said I was gonna go on Dec 26 and asked why.
She then said she had tickets for SMAP's 2014 tour「Mr.S -SAIKOU DE SAIKOU NO CONCERT TOUR-」in Kyocera dome on Dec 24.
To me that felt like being impossible to turn down, so in the end I changed my schedule totally and will go to Osaka in the morning of Dec 24!!
I can't believe that I will be able to see SMAP, they are not my fave group when it comes to music. However they do entertain me in so many other ways!!

Also, this means I'll be able to see Kimutaku and Goro-chan live ^^

I'm excited!!!! no matter what seat we get!!

North Korea - Nine years escaping from hell

A little more than a year ago I saw this girl or woman on the Norwegian / Swedish tv-show Skavlan. Then a few weeks ago I saw an invitation to go and listen to EunSun Kim during her visit in Stockholm.
I felt an urge to go, so I'm happy I can get off work to go and see this seminar with her.
I bought the book last week and I have started to read some. Not finished. But I hope to finish it soon.
I'm looking forward to see her this afternoon!

오직 그대만

Although I have to admit the story and movie was kinda slow, it had a nice theme and I liked both So Ji-Sub and Han Hyo-Joo.
I know it was released way back, but I finally had the time to watch it!! I have had it in my bookshelf for 1,5 years!!!
I'd say this is a typical Korean movie with some violence and romance. Also if you like to look at beautiful people, the movie is for you.
Still I wished they had developed the plot a bit more as it felt very slow here and there.


Titel: 오직 그대만 (Ohjik geudaeman) / Always
Release dates: October 20, 2011
Running time: 106 minutes
Country: South Korea
Language: Korean

Cheol-min, a man with a dark, mysterious past, gets hired at a part-time night job as a parking lot attendant. He sits in the tiny pay booth in the parking lot and stares at the small television. A woman named Jung-hwa walks into the booth. She offers something to Cheol-min and sits next to him. Cheol-min realizes the woman is blind and she is confusing him for the parking attendant who worked there previously.
Nevertheless, the woman comes back on another night to watch the same television drama. She constantly asks Cheol-min questions on what is happening on the television screen. Cheol-min starts becoming attached to the woman. Their past is tied by a life-altering incident.
One day, Cheol-min accompanies Jung-hwa to a musical. Afterwards they have dinner together. Jung-hwa asks about Cheol-min's past. Cheol-min ruthlessly berates Jung-hwa for asking about his past. Their relationship becomes strained.
Several days later when Jung-hwa's boss follows her home and tries to sexually assault her, Cheol-min busts through the door. He beats up Jung-hwa's boss savagely and attempts to comfort Jung-hwa. They move in together and start to live as a couple. But can their happiness last?

Anyway.... ENJOY!! ^^

I bought this movie 1,5 years ago but I finally had time to watch it. Late I know, but better later than never!?
I like the story a lot and acting, it had it all... action, romance, seriousness and cuteness!!
A great movie!! ^^
I can't understand that Song Joong-Gi is turning 30 next year, although the movie was made a few years back... thinking of it, he looks like 15!!!


Title: 늑대소년 (Neukdae Sonyeon) / Werewolf boy
Directed by: Jo Sung-hee
Distributed by: CJ Entertainment
Release date: October 31, 2012
Running time: 122 minutes
Country: South Korea
Language: Korean

Kim Sun-yi, an elderly woman in her sixties living in the US, receives a phone call about the sale of her old family home back in South Korea. Returning to her homeland, she's met by granddaughter Eun-joo, and they drive to the house in the country and stay the night. Sun-yi recalls how 47 years ago when she was a teenage girl in 1965, she moved from Seoul along with her widowed mother and sister Sun-ja to a remote valley to undergo a period of convalescence after suffering problems with her lungs. The Kims lived in genteel poverty at the mercy of their arrogant and foppish landlord, Ji-tae, son of the business partner of Sun-yi's late father. Because of her delicate health, the beautiful yet introverted Sun-yi lives an isolated life in the country home, without any friends her age.

One night, Sun-yi glimpses a shadow in the outhouse; the next day, she discovers a feral boy of about 19 crouching in their yard. The boy's body temperature is 46 degrees Celsius, his blood type unidentifiable, and he can neither read nor speak. Even though he behaves like a wild beast, Sun-yi's kindhearted mother adopts him and names him Chul-soo, assuming he's one of more than 60,000 children orphaned in the Korean War.
At first Sun-yi considers him a nuisance, but eventually has fun taming him according to a dog-training manual. She teaches him how to wait patiently before a meal, how to wear clothes, how to speak, how to write and other human behavior so that he could one day live like a normal man. Chul-soo demonstrates unswerving loyalty and superhuman brawn, thus inspiring the envy of Ji-tae, who lusts after Sun-yi....

60min spinning

5th time thos week o went to the new hobby?!
Oh's more fun than it sounds, it starts to feel like something "normal" or just that's how it is. Kinda like waking up in the morning.
Today i did 60min spinning, i managed to bike 33.7km. I wanted to reach 35 at least but i was too slow this time. Oh well..I'm kinda satisfied. ^^

Tomorrow is a new week and a new work out week ^^
I have 24 h work out rest..hehe

First Cabin Midousuji-Namba

So I booked myself a capsule!
I have always wanted to stay in one, but my JP uncle always said I wasn't allowed as it's most used by men!!
But I managed to find one for women only, or at least a women's only section ^^
I'm kinda excited to be honest!!!
I wonder how it will be, then again, this one is a bit larger than a normal capsule!!

It's only for a night but I don't think I want to stay there more than that anyway.. ^^

Separate sections

Japanese styled bath ^^

Address: 4F Midousuji-Namba Bldg, 4-2-1 Namba, Chuo-ku, Osaka, Osaka-fu, 542-0076, Japan

Mr. S

A few days ago I found out that I'll attend SMAP's concert in December, I felt like I needed to get this one. They will probably sing songs from this album so I should know some of the songs right!?
I have never really been a fan of SMAP's music, just a few songs here and there. Still I think it will be fun to attend their concert.
One thing that surprised and disappointed me was that some of their "latest" singles weren't on it... Like Battery, Shareotsu, Amazing Discovery, and Top of the World!!
This album is well.. very SMAP like, but there are too many songs that are not my cup of tea. It's too much "Ossan poi".
But I love Kimutaku's solo, I like the music style and lyrics, I'm excited to see him performing this! I also like Kimutaku and Goro-chan's duo! I love when they collaborate.
I also like Shingo's and Goro-chans solos, the songs fit them and I think it will be fun to see live too!! Shingo's song makes me think of the old days when I was younger ^^ And Goro-chan's is a great work out song as well as it fits him which makes it fun to listen to ^^ A little 90-00's style..haha
Of all of the group songs, my fave one is the tune called THE FUTURE. I like that kind of beat and just like I have said before, it will probably be nice to hear live! ^^
Nakai doesn't have a solo on this album, but to be completely honest, I don't really miss it.

This pop-ed up on my YT feed the other day, I have never heard of this artist before. But it was quite nice so I felt like I should share.
I wonder why it pop-ed up, then again it's always nice with some new unknown music! ^^
I guess it has something to do with my Canadian country music from earlier this year ^^

There's a new Swedish movie coming out today that I think I might want to go and watch.
In Swedish it's called: Hallonbåtsflyktingen and in Finnish it's called Vadelmavenepakolainen. Which means raspberry boat refugee in English.
And it has premiere today!!

Hallonbåtsflyktingen is a comedy about a Swedish man caught in a Finnish body.
Mikko Virtanen hates everything that is Finnish. He has since childhood wished to leave the great silence, sauna, knife fights and "Kosken" for regular Swedish lifestyle including the Swedish national insurance agency, refrigerator temperature soured milk and ABBA.
On a Finland ferry Mikko runs into the Swedish psychologist Mikael, who has grown tired of the whole Swedish "ordinariness of life." On deck the two hits life-critical agreement; Mikko will take over Mikael's identity and finally become homegrown Swedish. Now he is just getting to know his new Swedish family...

Funny thing is, looking at the trailers it kinda feels like two different kinds of movies.

Summer feeling

I ate this last Friday, the photo maybe looks so so but it was super delicious.
BBQed chicken, mushrooms and corn with bulgur, feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, olives and tzatziki.
It felt like summer all over again!!! I could eat this kind of food every day!!

40 km in the woods

Last Saturday I took my bike for a ride, I had in mind that I'd bike 20 km but in the end I did double, 40!!!
I guess I had fun while doing it and my PT had told me it would do my knees good so why not? ^^
It took aprox 2 hours and 20 min.
Although it was kinda lonely, I had my mp3 with great music. And well.. not totally alone, me and lots of cars, driving like crazy. Only because they think it's on a cartway they think they can drive just as the pleases. that means NO SPEED LIMIT!!!!
Oh well, I'm used to it now and I survived!!

The weather was perfect, cloudy and not too hot. Riding the bike made it hot anyway (^^;;)

Close to civilization

In the middle of nowhere

Me and my Strawberry helmet I picked up in Taiwan in 2011 ^^

Only me and the road

내 마음이 뭐가 돼 (Wasted)

Singer songwriter Younha is back! I have been waiting!
This time she is back with a beautiful yet sad ballad.

It's described as "사랑 후에 이별을 삼켜내는 과정에 놓인 그 누군가에게 전하는 노래" / "Convey the process to ones what has experienced the after effects of a break up".

Attention please

Who doesn't want some attention now and then?
Take a look at this fella, maybe 20 times as big but still crying out for attention ^^

I know this video is quite old, but it doesn't get boring (^^;;)

Coca Cola Life

Who hasn't seen this at the store or on TV?
Coca-Cola's new more healthy coke!? (If you can call coke healthier?!)
Oh well, yesterday I fell for it and had to try. What I regret it. The stevia tastes HORRIBLE. It's really disgusting.
This is not coke, to me it feels like a fake brand using their logo. Coke ZERO or Light are the only ones I will ever drink if I don't want the normal sugar amount!!

Sorry Coca-Cola but better luck next time!
