What a blessing you were, Answer Me 1997

This is not a show to be mess with. It was so great beginning to end. I LOVE IT! Even though it didn’t have A-list stars or a great production value it was so alive and wonderfully made. This feels like the whole package if you wanted to sit at home and watch, marathon the whole thing. (I wouldn’t recommend it if it is your first watch, every bit and pieces is so great.)It would just be a pleasure.  Even if the acting has rough patches, the actors are able to give it their all and create lovable characters that you want to put in your pocket and run away with.:)

The story goes from the present tense to the end and uses voiceovers so great. It touches my heart because it all felt so real and I can imagine all this happening with real people.  It makes so undeceive and you won’t even be able to predict what the hell is going to happen next.

I don’t want to spoil anything because this drama is so great and it’s story is one that needs to be heard and watch. Have a good time, Answer Me 1997 will make you happy. 😀

There’s No Such Thing As Nice Guys

In my opinion, the best melodrama to date. This show had everything, the music, the fast pace, the incredible storyline, the cast, scripter writer, directing, almost perfect. It tug at my heart all the way, I felt for all the characters minus Lawyers Ahn. Hehe. I might be the only one who wasn’t satisfied with ending. I felt exactly like how Ms. Koala at her playground felt, cheated. The whole show was great every bit and piece, and the ending wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great too. It was just good.

I give my applause for everyone who had a part in making this one of the best shows thus far, and I better see it scoring some awards at the award show, you hear me KBS!

All the leads were so enriching and alive that I couldn’t but help feel for them froth beginning to the end. I know most people hate Jae Hee but I love the way Park Shi Yeon portrays here, brilliantly.  Eun Gi made me view Moon Chae Yoon in a different light as an actress. Song Joong Ki definitely hit it out of the park for Kang Maru. Ohh, how I loved his character. They lived up to all my expectations of them. Everything just builds up on everything.

While watching the show I was glad they used Eun Gi’s amnesia to create such a great storyline and effect that gave melodrama a whole new definition of cliques. Especially Maru’s revenge for Jae Hee, it didn’t end just half through the story and wasn’t revenge the whole way but added so much depth into turning Jae Hee around and opening up Maru’s view on the whole aspect. I love Jae Hee and sadly, it’s something I have to admit. Maybe it’s because Park Shi Yeon did a great job making me pity her. I wished Jae Hee had the best for herself, which she eventually did. However I felt there wasn’t enough scenes of her and her son interacting that would have been great.

At the end of the day, Nice Guy is not one to forget, all it’s character were so alive and human that I could rewatch the show again and again. So now I’m going to go off to find Doodlearts to gossip more. 😉

I Miss You: First Impressions

When I read the summary for the drama, I did not realize watching the show would be a different story. I finish the first four episode and all I can say is everyone is DOOM. I cannot see a happy ending. If you care for knowing the summary, it is about 15-year-old Soo-Yeon is a victim of bullying at school. They target her, because her father is a murderer. Soo-Yeon has an ally in Jung-Woo who always protects her from the bullies. Soo-Yeon and Jung-Woo are in love, but due to an unexpected accident they become separated. Now as adults they meet again through destiny. Jung-Woo is now a detective and his first love has always remained in the back of his mind. Soo-Yeon is now a rookie fashion designer who tries to have a bright personality, but still carries emotional scars inside of her. Hyung-Joon  is Soo-Yeon’s lover, who appears warm and nice, but he will try to take vengeance upon Jung-Woo.

And the worst thing of all, only the first half of the summary has happen.*pounds head on table* This is a great show and should be paid attention too. However it contains so much different emotions and levels that I almost couldn’t continue after episode 3. I Miss You gets very dark and goes all the way pass what a melodrama should be. It’s above and beyond supported by a wonderful and brilliant cast of actors and actresses that I can’t imagine the adult generation of leads can take on what their child counter parts did. I’ll be a seeing this show to the very end since I believe I already pass the hardest part of the story, the lead’s separation.

So far now, let’s stick with the happy faces to contain ourselves from the mellowness later on.:)

So you guys know I don’t only watch just Asian dramas right? You guys see me post One Tree Hill videos of Brooke&Lucas on here.There’s a reason, they’re my ultimate OTP and I found an mv that I believe represents their love. Trust me this is bias.:)They will never get old for me, never.

One Tree Hill was the first TV Series I remember falling deeply in love in.This couple made it feels so real everything. They set the bar pretty high for couples in the future in my opinion. This is where I let go of them and let them rest in my heart.

The Prettiness of Summerfever

Gahhhhhh. After watching the teaser, which was full of heart-tugging moments and awesomeness, I just want this to come out already. I been looking in ever little corner possible after I found out this drama on Guigui‘s wikipedia page. It’s sad to see it under the radar with not much popularity as others. However I have a feeling it will have good reviews though. Guigui and George Hu are magnificent in this.

Summer is the height of tourist season on the island of Kinmen. In one particular summer, national pianist champion, Chen Wen Qing, came to the island to spend her summer vacation. Local boy, Lin Ming Kuan, was her tour guide. As their adventures on the island went on, Kuan gradually fell in love with her. Yet, he never revealed his feelings. He didn’t think he was good enough for her. He even pushed her away when he discovered that she felt the same way for him. However, her unwavering love finally demolished his defense. They spent the rest of the summer being happily in love. When the summer came to end and Qing must return home, she promised to email him everyday and come back the next summer.

Next summer came. Qing returned to the island as promised. But, Kuan started to feel there is something different with Qing…

Now for some pretty:

King of Baking,Kim Tak Gu:Scene Recap

The scene,maybe two, that I’m about to recap holds dear to my heart and my love for this drama despite the makjiang of all makjiang.

Here our leading lady, Yi Kyung (this is our leading lady folks according to dramawiki and casting list) is offically saying goodbye to our leading guy, Tak Gu forever.

Yi Kyung decides she’s is going to resign from working under Tak Gu’s father’s company and marry his half-brother Ma Jun instead.

This leads them both to a handshake and a firm hug, Yi Kyung saying she’ll hold him dear to her heart always and both of them nodding their heads in agreement.:(

An so she finally marries the pathetic brother of his with just his sisters and father dad’s friend as witness.

He later stupidly tells her his secret and leaves her to live with it while he party his jealous ass out at the club. However what he doesn’t know is this is what causes him to lose her for an entire 3 episodes.

She tells him that a part of her thought he really loved her. She continues with why she chose him and not Tak Gu and her regret.

Good thing a happy unsatisfying ending exist so their world wouldn’t be so craze-up.

Reflections of My World.

hellooooooo. It’s been awhile since I blog but I just wanted to tell you guys how busy I was with my drama life. 😀 I’ve been hopping drama ships back and forth from Korean to Thai to Chinese to Taiwan. I know I’m an Asian loverrr.

First off I want to introduce my plate of K-drama I’m watching and the impression they left on me.

Big

This show surprise me right at the beginning. I was lost and didn’t know who the OTP was till halfway to half.:( I’m kinda slowww. I forgot to tell you guys, Big is about a 18 year old boy Kang Kyung Joon who switch body minds with Yoon Jae, a 30 year old doctor, during a car accident. The thing is KJ wakes up alive while YJ doesn’t wake up period. I think it kinda sucks because YJ’s story is kinda left out and that becomes a mystery to me which I’m still solving. Also forgot to add that YJ has a fiancee whose is the teacher of KJ.Awesome right?Then in the mix we have crazy stalker childhood friend of KJ, Mari who tags along for the rectangle love.Well just the triangle one.This is one of the rare Hong Sisters drama that doesn’t really get to me just like the last one sadly.:( I hope I end up liking it more than what the impressions gave me because the acting is bringing IT!GONGYOOO.

Bridal Mask

Yeah. They don’t look as innocent and sweet as they do.They’re so doom you want to cry, literally.Bridal Mask reminds me of City Hunter in tone and mood just more doom. This is such a great drama and I don’t wanna ruin anything for the watchers because it keeps you on your toes, every scene breaks my heart. So I’m just going to give you guys the drama-wiki version: Gaksital (Bridal Mask) is a famous manhwa set in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation. The hero, Lee Kang-to, is known as ‘Gaksital’ because he wears a mask to hide his face — one of those traditional play masks, specifically the rosy-cheeked one reserved for the female role, aka the bride. He’s an unassuming young man in real life, but when he dons his superhero mask, he fights injustice and rights wrongs during one of the darkest periods of Korea’s history.Summary true to story.I recommend this drama more than anything airing right now because it feels so human and you can actually connect with the characters which to me is great. All the characters plus actors bitchy or not fit perfectly into the roles. I didn’t post pictures of the OTP and Bromance for nothing, great chemistry…. all doom.:)

I Need Romance 2012

If it weren’t for this drama BM would’ve eaten me alive. I love this, I Need Romance 2012 is similar to the first season but wayyyyyy better in it’s storyline and plot. Basiclly it’s about three 30 year old friends who and their love life. The main girl lives with her on-off ex-boyfriend of 3 years in an apartment. He’s her best friend and vise-versa. If you guys want to watch one of the INR season I recommend this season as the pace is faster less stupid and non-irritating. Did I mention everyone as hot as hell?!Yup they are.

P.S Watch this age 16 and above.XD

Here’s my Thai dramas and their non-nonsense:

Likit Fah Cha Ta Din

This show is so-so. I liked it in the beginning,it touch my heart at time but the rest of the screw-up crap that happen I blame on the mom’s selfish-self. If she been there for her son, he wouldn’t turn into a jerk-face and actually meet his soul mate sooner.Also we wouldn’t have almost get some taboo going on. I give props to the actors though, they went beyond what I thought of them and made me pity their foolishness. The chemistry between everyone was great and it one of the better Exact lakorns nowadays. They storyline is base on how the mother had pra’ek with her boyfriend but he left her to get marry. She has the baby and leaves him at a faraway temple, where he grew up raise by mental parents. The mother on the other hand got remarry to an older guy and has the second pra’ek he turns doesn’t get the motherly affection that is needed.They grow up and fall in love with the same girl,who only loves the pra’ek not the second one. There’s another n’ek(second) who also falls in love with her pra-ek her unknown half-brother but laters love second pra-ek. Told ya we’re almost tabooing.:)

Rak Praksit

I don’t even know how this got on here but I watch the whole thing and it disappointed me from beginning to end despite all the pretty that was in it.SAD. If you watch the older version you’ll understand. This one had pure nonsense in it that I feel sad for the actors in it.Enough said.

Tawainnnn:

Alice in Wonder City

Isn’t the title so enchanting, I wish the same for the drama.I knew I shouldn’t had kept my expectations high because AiWC beat it all down in a punch of an episode. I don’t know why I’ even still watching this stuff. First,I greatly disappointed  in the writer who brought two amazing Taiwanese dramas to life, Black & White and The Hospital. However I’m still going to keep watching to see how our two talented violinists male leads are going to to battle with a non-existing singing female lead and on whatever craze she is second lead female. I came on the ride so I better finish it all the way.

The best for last, CHINA:

The Legend of Zhen Huan

After watching Bu Bu Jing Xin I thought no drama can beat this but TLoZH came and it was beasttt.This drama makes me shiver, it so damn good I’m dedicating a post to it after I finish the whole thing.This is what they call love.XD However a little summary on drama-wiki to keep you on your toes: This Qing dynasty drama focuses on the schemes in the Harem between Emperor Kang Xi’s wives.  Zhen Huan, initially a kind and innocent young lady, enters the palace and eventually finds herself caught in the conflict between the empress and concubines. Zhen Huan discovers that the palace is actually a cruel and harsh place, and learns how to survive on her own.
