If you haven`t been reached by the craze fan girls(and boys) all over the world are experiencing, "Descendants of the Sun" is a hit Korean drama which just finished airing last month. It has gained popularity not only in South Korea but also here in the Philippines. According to some online reports, the production cost was 13 billion or approximately US$ 11,047,010.00/Php 515,514,245.16. With such high budget, the whole team of "Descendants of the Sun" must have really worked hard to give the viewers the best TV series they possibly can. And with the widespread enthusiasm and passion surrounding this drama, I think they`ve gotten a flattering response from people around the world.

These Mojos are actually appetizers. They had a taste of authentic potato fries but I felt like there was too much onion-like taste to it. It tasted odd combined with the sauce. My friend commented that the sauce tasted like it has too much vinegar. I didn`t quite enjoy it.
