I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Sunday to Saturday. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes!
I’m already preparing and getting hyped for G-Dragon’s concert in a few weeks so I’m listening to the concert’s setlist. EEEEKKKKK (Kinda irritated though that his first album, Heartbreaker, isn’t on Spotify so it’s not in the playlist.
Taeyang also dropped two amazing tracks for his comeback!
New Journey to the West 4: I saw this with my sister while I was so fucking drunk. That was an experience. Haha! I can’t believe though that it’s over! T_T I know there’s still another episode for the season but that’s just the “director’s cut”, kinda like a bonus episode. But they’ve gotten all the dragon balls! I’m trying to placate myself that there’s gonna be a fifth season because they said there will be BUT STILL!!! NO MORE KYUHYUN. Huhuhuhu
I also ended staying up until 4AM some days because I was watching clips of I Live Alone and variety shows with Big Bang and WINNER as guests. And GD clips too. WHY IS HE SO CUTE
I also saw random Return of Superman episodes/clips with my sister because WE LOVE CUTE KIDS DUH
Boku, Unmei no Hito desu: I’ve only seen one episode so far and I like what I see! It didn’t elicit the just-one-more-episode mania I had with We Got Married as a Job! but I’m definitely continuing with it, if only for the Kame + Pi reunion. I didn’t find myself shipping the romance just yet, probably because they’re not interacting yet? I am SO INTO Kame and Pi’s weird but awesome relationship in this, though. PI CRACKS ME UP!
A Girl & Three Sweethearts: I tried this one because MIURA SHOHEI. It was cute and I’m sure I’ll feel Second Lead Syndrome with Shohei yet ship the girl with YamaKento. After the first episode, I read a negative review about YamaKento’s character being abusive and I hate myself for kinda swooning at him on the first episode when the red flags were there. I’m now scared to continue with this because what does it say about me if I continue to swoon? I can still like problematic things, right? Gah, but there were so many raves about this one! And I kinda get it too because after the first episode, I wanted to see the next one immediately. *dilemma*
Fabricated City (2017): I already posted a review of this one so just check it out instead of me babbling again over here. Ha.
The BFG (2016): Truth be told, I didn’t really pay attention to this one because I was at a house party and I was eating and drinking and socializing while occasionally watching this and asking those who were indeed seeing it to explain some things. The giant’s accent was so thick and I couldn’t hear much because everyone was loud. I did like the interactions with the queen though and it was a bit heartwarming too. Maybe more if I was focused. Alas, nope.
Thoughts on Fabricated City + army sendoff to Ji Chang-wook huhuhu
