The Wedding Banquet: Ady An and Hu Ge Reunites

I have been waiting for this day for eight long years. Hu ge and Ady An are finally going to reunite in the movie The Wedding Banquet.

“The story is about Ady’s character going home to her rich family to attend a wedding banquet. She’s too embarrassed to reveal that she and her ex-boyfriend played by Hu Ge is no longer together. So she begs him to attend with her and act like they are still together. This brings the former exes back together as cuteness follows.” (credits to koalasplayground) (i hope this comes out with english subtittles.)

I am so too happy to hear this news. It’s getting me so excited and I just can’t wait to see these two together and feel their chemistry and their emotions towards each other again.
Ever since Chinese Paladin, I have fallen in love with this couple. From my personal opinion, Hu Ge and Ady An together out shined Hu Ge and Liu Yi Fei as a couple.

Although I am extremely excited for their coupling again, I’m not really liking the story line (but it’s not too bad). I was hoping Hu Ge and Ady would star in a really good Wuxia drama together 😦 but I guess i’ll have to wait a bit longer for that to take place.
Hopefully in this movie, the two characters end up together (unlike in CP). And i’m also praying to god that after this movie, they do a wuxia drama together>_<

 

NG Life: Past Vs. Present

I have finally finished reading the manga series NG Life (Nice Going Life) by Mizuho Kusanagi. It’s hard to express how much I love the manga. If you haven’t read it (i feel sad for you), go read my post about manga suggestions and I will have a summary of it there. Reading it made me happy and cry my heart out on the sad scenes. This manga is of course your happy ending shojo manga. But before the story ended, Keidai Saeki has to sacrifice the most important thing to him. His Past or his one true love, Mii Serizawa.

Let me start with my thoughts on all the major characters^_^
Keidai Saeki/Sirix: Who wouldn’t love the dorky stupid passionate idiotic main guy!!! I love keidai’s character and love how the dear author drew him. I feel the author did an extremely good job with Keidai’s face expression. Through out the story, Keidai’s character has shown happy, excited, sad, jealousy, etc.. emotions. If you’ve read the book, you would actually feel sympathy/pity for him. Keidai is so passionate about his past life in Pompeii with his beloved Serena and his one best friend Loleus that he tends to forget what he has in front of him in his present life. But despite all that, he still loves everyone around him. He was blessed with meeting everyone from his past life in the life that he has now. And that is his happiness: Having to meet everyone who he shared a special feeling with in Pompeii.

Mii Serizawa/Loleus: There’s a reason why Serizawa is Kei-chan’s best friend in both the past and the present (only now she’s a girl instead of a boy). Serizawa has no memories of her past life in Pompeii what-so-ever. But being keidai’s best friend, she learns of how special she is to Kei-chan and of her past self. It’s pretty obvious that she is madly in love with Keidai. But with Keidai so dorky and so in love with his Beloved Serena from the past, Serizawa has to suffer hiding her feelings in. She didn’t show a bit of emotion that she’s hurt by Kei-chan not looking at her as a friend. That’s what I love about her character. She is always by Keidai’s side through his problems. She tells herself that she’s fine with just being Keidai’s Friend for ever. If you look at how here eyes were drawn during those moments, you can tell that she’s telling the truth and not just saying stuff. At the same time, you can also tell that she can break down in tears any moment.

Yuuma Ujoh/Serena: Well, I feel sad for Yuuma. He has to go through his whole life looking like a sweet innocent girl when he’s actually really a boy in the present (this is also bad for keidai>_<). This little cute young fella fell in love with Serizawa too(i mean, who wouldn’t?). But too bad SErizawa is already in love with Kei-chan:). Poor Yuuma, he was rejected. This made him furious (in a good way). It motivated him to exercise and lift weights so that he wont look like a girl in any way. btw, he does not remember his past. Yuuma knows that Serizawa likes Kei-chan and Knows that Keidai likes Serizawa too. So he strongly encourages Kei-chan to grab his balls be a man and look after Serizawa although inside him hurts so much. But im glad that later on, he slowly gets over his feelings for her. Yuuma is so caring. I wouldnt mind dating Yuuma^_^ (but im too old for his age. he’s only in junior high!!).

Shinogu Kagami/Smyrna: Now here’s a hot student teacher in the present life and a sexy over-protective anti-boy older sister of Serena in the past life:). In the past life, Shinogu hated Sirix(Keidai) for courting her/his beloved younger sister Serena. And now in the present life, he still dislikes him. another thing, he’s Yuuma’s older cousin so another problem for Kei-chan (hehehe). Shinogu remembers his past life. This is what brings him and Keidai’s relationship closer to each other but at the same time, he cannot forgive Sirix/Keidai for leaving Serena all alone in the dark during the volcanic eruption in Pompeii. Since in the past, Symrna hated boys so much, she is reborn as a hot guy in the present (not to mention a pervert also). Although at times Shinogu seems like a cold hearted ignorant person to Keidai, he still really cares about him (in an aggressive way..LOL). That’s why I love this character as well. One thing that’s sweet about Shinogu is that he looks out for the girls like Yuuma and Serizawa (because they’re cute). Which really reflects out his past self where he was really overprotective of Serena.

Reina Sakakibara: A girl version of Yuuma. She looks exactly like Yuuma/Serena and also his age. I personally thought her character was really annoying when she first walks into the story. She was always crying and putting up a big fit (but she was a bit funny) and I thought she was going to be another girl who will fall in love with Keidai. But as the story progresses, her character tend to grow in my heart. I thought her character was really special compared to the other characters. Everyone thought that she wasn’t a part of the past but at the end of the story, we, the readers, finds out that her past self(tina) was the last one to stay by Serena’s side. I love how she and Yuuma gets along so well and hoped that they will fall for each other later on. After her annoying scenes when she first came in, her character really started to come out more. She’s really straightforward and openminded. She’s not scared of hurting other people’s feelings but at the same time, she cares for them a lot and say things to get people to realize stuff. For example, making Serizawa admit she likes Kei-chan^_^.

Shuna Sakakibara/Aglaia Felix: Reina’s older sister. This girl is straight up mature. She’s the same age as Keidai and Serizawa. In her past life, she was like the mother goddess whom everyone respects and loves. Shuna remembered her past life until one day when she suddenly forgets every bit of her beloved Pompeii and the people from it. You have just gotta love they way the author drew out Shuna. She’s a high school girl, but has this really mature and feminine touch that the readers can just grasp on the first scene that she pops up. She’s not really like a doll, but more like a young motherly figure. Although she looks mature and look like she knows a lot, she is an airhead who is most of the time really clueless-__-. She gets confused and hates it how everyone who remembers the past keeps seeing her as Aglaia (after she forgot her memory). It drove her nuts and wanted to be seen as Shuna and not Aglaia. Shuna is so sweet and innocent. I love love love her romantic love life with Souichi Mikage.

Souichi Mikage/Delos: This dude’s straight up hot. But was a straight up jerk in his past life and a little tiny bit of his present life (he remembers his past). In the past life, he was a guard for Lady Aglaia now Shuna. One day he betrayed her and if you read the story you would know what im talking about. But, because of him, Shuna forgot her memories. They are in love in the present and Shuna gave up her memories of the past for her love towards him. I hate it how Mikage can’t stand the fact that Shuna forgot her past. It was as if he loved Aglaia and not Shuna. So, because of the way he is, he has to suffer through Shuna’s “hard-to-get”. Eventually he learns to love Shuna for who she is and they have a happy ending together. Mikage doesn’t really talk much. He’s really laid back and acts like he doesn’t give a crap about other people. But he really does. Especially Shuna. After reading the manga, I can understand why Shuna fell in love with him even though he betrayed her at the last minute in the past.

Overall, I love all the characters of NG Life. Im really happy that I’ve finished reading the series but at the same time i feel sad cause it has ended (a happy kind of sad). But anywho, that’ll be it for now!!!

THANKS FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL TIME!!

This feeling of having feelings for someone is just miserable. i can’t even believe they call it love when all i can feel is misery thinking of that person, thinking of when i will see him. then i think about spending the rest of my life with him. and all of a sudden this spark of happiness struck my heart and a smile comes upon my face. then i ask myself. is this love? and i realize it is.

OGURI SHUN MARRIED!!!!???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!

SAY WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???????

IM SORRY. I, at this moment, am TOO surprised to even say “hello moonlights!!”
I am probably late by now but i just recently got this news TODAY from LUNADARA(thank you very much for ruining my day). Anyways, Oguri Shun is married to his girlfriend, now his wife, Yamada Yu. I am very much surprised. I loved him so much and he’s such a great actor and I loved him as Detective Conan and no one can ever replace him in my heart. It’s too bad that he and I are of different world and will never meet *TEARS*

I am still happy for him. He has found the one that he truly loves (hopefully). My dear Oguri-Kun, you and I shall meet in the next life time and become one heart and live together in harmony.

BRIDE OF THE WATER GOD by Mi-Kyung Yun

A Korean Manhwa and a MUST READ. It’s about a little town that’s been suffering from a drought for a very long time. They say it’s because the water god (Haebaek) has not been giving them rain. So, they (the towns peeps) say that a sacrifice must be made in order for the water god to give them rain. The town will sacrifice/drown a girl and make her the water god’s bride. Soah, is unfortunately one of the girls to be sacrificed. It’s a really interesting book. Haekaek and Soah will eventually fall in love and a lot of things will happen and their hearts will be broken and everything>_< (it’s really sad) *tears*…FYI, the water god is a total hottie^_^

NG LIFE by Mizuho Kusanagi


Keidai Saeki can remember his past life. Many years ago, he was a young man named Sirix who lived in a city called Pompeii with a beautiful wife named Serena and a best friend named Loleus. They lived in peace and happiness but ultimately perished when their city was destroyed in a volcanic eruption. And now, in the present, his wife has been born as a boy and his best friend born as a girl!! Everyday is full of anguish for keidai as he struggles with these relationships in a completely altered present!
The author is the same creator as MUGEN SPIRAL! NG Life is worth reading. I think it’s sad and comedic at the same time. Do check it out and tell me what you guys thing:) FYI, it may seem a little draggy at first but it has its reasons. PLUS! all the characters are not annoying. I loved everyone one of them^^

LEGEND by Woo SooJung

Once upon a time, a selfish king summoned the monstrous Bulkirin into the real world. The monster killed half of all human beings, leaving the rest helpless as to what to do. That is, until one day when a hero appeared and defeated the Bulkirin with the legendary ”Seven Blade Sword.” But…what does all this have to do with 8th grader Eun-Gyo Sung?! First, she gets suspended from school for fighting. Then, she runs away from home. The last thing she needed was to be kidnapped — and whisked into the past by a mysterious stranger named No-Ah! (summary credit http://www.yenpress.com/legend/
I love this Manhwa!! the main girl, Eun Gyo, is so funny. She may seem like those typical snobbish manga teenage girls but there is something different about her aura that really attracts me. The Art is beautiful and i recommend everyone to read this!! What i like about this Manhwa the most is that it’s not draggy at all. It’s really fast pace and you can easily understand every detail. LEGEND also reminds me of a particular manga, Inuyasha. But LEGEND is so much better:)

MAID SAMA by Hiro Fujiwara

Seika High School, once an all-boys school notorious for its wild students and for generally being a terrifying place for girls, has recently become a co-ed school. With the female population still a minority and living in fear of the over-the-top antics of the males, Misaki Ayuzawa takes it into her own hands to reform the school and allow the girls to feel safe in the rough environment.
Training, studying, and even becoming the first female student council president of the school, Misaki has gained a reputation among the male students body as an uptight, boy-hating dictator and as a shining hope for the teachers and fellow female students. However, despite her tough-as-nails appearance, she secretly works part-time at a maid café in order to support her family. Unfortunately, her hard-earned reputation is threatened when the popular, attractive, and somewhat impassive Takumi Usui takes an interest in her after discovering her in a maid uniform after school.
The main guy in here is everything a girl would ever want>_<. At first he will seem like he’s really mean and cocky. But once he meets and gets to know the main girl, he is as gentle and sweet as a flower(?). He’s so in love with her and protects her as much as he can(although he doesnt need to) because she’s a strong willed girl!!! this is a must read. It’s really funny too.

KIMINI TODOKE by Karuho Shiina


Sawako Kuronuma, called Sadako by her classmates for her resemblance to the character fromThe Ring, has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance. There are rumors that Sawako can see ghosts and curse people. However, despite her appearances, she is a sweet and timid girl who longs to be able to make friends with everyone and be liked by everyone else. When her idol, popular boy Kazehaya, begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, trying to make friends and talking to different people and she can’t thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly, but surely, a sweet love blossoms between the two as they overcome circumstances and obstacles that stand in their way. (credits: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimi_ni_Todoke)
This story will not be a waste of time. It’s filled with friendship and love. The manga will not fail your expectations.

PIG BRIDE by Huh Kook-Hwa

Rebellious and spoiled eight year old Si-Joon Lee is sent to a summer camp in the mountains by his senator father. He runs away and gets lost but is saved when he finds a house in the middle of nowhere. A mysterious woman who lives there reveals to him that he is part of an ancient prophecy and must marry her daughter, Mu-Yeon, a descendant of the Park family of the ‘Park Bride’ folktale. The daughter is a small girl of Si-Joon’s age who hides her face behind a smiling pig mask. Tempted by food Si-Joon agrees to the marriage.

Si-Joon attempts to live his life normally but begins to experience flash-backs involving his past life and Mu-Yeon.
Later on in the series, Doe Doe starts to fall for Ji Oh Yun, Si Joon’s best friend and at the end of the series, it is never officially resolved whether Ji Oh like Mu Hwa or Doe Doe.
