Weekly Round-up (10): October 1 – 7, 2017

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! (Posted a day late because I got so busy last week that I couldn’t even finish this weekly round-up post!)

 

~MUSIC~

If it isn’t obvious yet from the deluge of gifs with MINO’s body rolls, I’ve been O B S E S S E D with his song “Body”. Here’s the MV and I also included the live performance where those gifs came from. EVERYTHING IS SO SEXY GOODNESS I CAN’T BREATHE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And because of Respeto (which I’m talking about in the films section), this song got stuck in my head.

 

 

~KOREAN VARIETY~

Weekly Idol: I finally saw WINNER’s Weekly Idol in full and IT IS SO SHORT!!!!111 I WANT MORE!!!! They didn’t even dance to girl group songs. T_T Anyway, I loved how Hoony got so much screentime and it was just so fun and enjoyable overall. I hope they go to the basement again soon!

 

~KDRAMAS~

While You Were Sleeping: Everything is so cute!! And I already feel like swooning from our main couple. But it’s also SO very high in stakes that I’m so invested in this week’s case. Woo-tak the cop is so cute, seriously, I’m kinda obsessed with how cute he is. Every week I feel like I didn’t get enough and I always want more more MORE MOAR. Livewatching this is the best/worst choice I made. Hahaha!

Girls’ Generation 1979 / Lingerie Girls’ Generation: AND IT’S OVER TOO SOON. DONG-MOON~AH YOU ARE SO CUTE I AM GLAD YOU GOT THE GIRL. GOOD LORD THIS DRAMA GAVE ME SO MUCH FEELINGS. I plan on writing a full review/spazzout for this drama so just look out for that. BUT SERIOUSLY ALL THE CUTENESS IN THE WORLD IN ONE SHOW

Age of Youth Season 2: I wouldn’t exactly call it watching the show because I only watched EVERY CLIP WITH A SHIP on JTBC Drama’s Youtube channel. Hahaha! I swear, I’ll get on watching this for real.

 

~FILMS~

Respeto (2017): I was able to catch Respeto, finally! My friend Jeffrey has hyped this one to me that I wanted to see it. Overhyped actually because then I had such high expectations that I feel like weren’t met. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, I guess I just expected a whole lot more after the hype. Haha! Anyway, the screenplay was by Njel de Mesa so it was also a given that I’ll watch it. I’ve been a fan of his since my high school days. Love how it didn’t feel like poverty porn, love the anti-Martial Law and the government discourse in the background which felt like the first ever film I’ve seen that directly criticized the current government, the underground rap scene, A SCRIPT IN FULL TAGALOG/FILIPINO, and the boatloads of societal issues tackled/touched upon.

 

~BLOG~

Erm, since I got so busy, I wasn’t able to write up posts beforehand sooooooo I only got to share the songs I was into last September.
