I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Monday to Sunday. 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! (Two weeks worth because I barely watched two weeks ago because of being busy!)
Ever since Mino played these songs on his V Live last February 1, I’ve been listening to this playlist all the time. My baby! We have the same tastes in music too so that’s a plus. MY BABY
Weekly Idol: Lianne was craving for some funny variety shows and she asked to watch SECHSKIES’ Weekly Idol episodes with me and who am I to say no to two hours of fun? I still enjoyed these episodes so much, even though I’ve already seen it. Jae-jin’s 4D-ness never gets old and Ji-won is so Ji-won.
Hwayugi / A Korean Odyssey: I’m severely behind on this show, which is a shame but I don’t even feel guilty about it. The last that I’ve seen was episode 8 and that was on January 29. I’ve been downloading the episodes on my Netflix app but whenever I reach for my phone, it’s not the thing I want to watch. I really enjoy this drama whenever I’m watching it but it’s hard to get me in the mood to watch it and be patient with it. The plot could be draggy and I have quibbles here and there, which prevents me from being !!!excited!!! about it, but whenever it’s on, Lee Seung-gi just sucks me into the zone. Hahahahuhuhu. I might just binge it this coming long weekend since I already have so many episodes to catch up on!
Let’s Eat: Ohmygod, I got so obsessed with Let’s Eat this previous week! I finished this show in a week, despite being super busy with work. I’ve been sleeping less just so I can watch JUST. ONE. MORE. EPISODE. And now that I’m done with it, the more that I think about it, the more I love it? I wanna relieve it and rewatch it and when I go back to Seoul, I wanna visit the places they ate at. I tried watching Radio Romance when it started airing but I was getting mad at Doo-joon’s asshole jerk character and how unprogressive we’ve become YET AGAIN. It’s 2018! We shouldn’t romanticize this behavior! And yet again, I fall for it, we fall for it. So while I was mad at myself for being confused about Radio Romance, I figured that the first full drama I should see of Doo-joon’s shouldn’t be such a polarizing one so I dived into Let’s Eat and OHMYGOD WHAT A GLORIOUS SLOW BURN ROMANCE THIS IS. I was even afraid there wouldn’t be any romance! They’re so cute and while the romance doesn’t take a whole lot of the drama pie, I still love LOVE it. Now I’m getting a bit stressed thinking about Let’s Eat 2 because I really adore and love the first season and it’s gonna be weird seeing Doo-joon with a new girl. So I’m taking a break before I see the second season although I’m yearning for some more food porn.
Laughter in Waikiki: THIS SHOW IS SUCH A BLAST. I haven’t seen the second episode but I’m dying to! Work has been so busy that it’s taking my kdrama time away but I’m gonna do everything so I can watch the second episode today. I actually recapped the first episode and I LEGITIMATELY had tears in my eyes with some scenes. It’s just so hilarious and I’m now such a big fan of Lee Yi-kyung. I’ve missed Go Won-hee and it’s so nice to see her here and see her being all out and game and funny too!
Haikyuu!!: I watched the pilot episode of this one and I ALREADY FEEL LIKE I’M GONNA LOVE IT. Unfortunately, only the first season is on Netflix so I would have to find another way to watch the next seasons, which is why I haven’t binged it yet until I find a way to watch it on my phone without all the hassle of downloading or streaming with ads.
The Edge of Seventeen (2016): Because Mino mentioned this movie in his V Live, I finally decided to watch it. I wasn’t very impressed by it, probably because I had super high expectations. Even before Mino mentioned this one, I’ve been hearing raves about this, especially Hailee Steinfeld’s performance. I do admit I teared up while watching The Edge of Seventeen and I related to Steinfeld’s character so much. The more I think about it though, the more I appreciate Hailee Steinfeld’s acting. She was Nadine and it didn’t feel like she was acting, which just meant she was so natural. A quote I got from the movie though would forever be etched in my memory. It was kinda sad but quite comforting too. “Everyone in the world is as miserable and empty as I am. They’re just better at pretending.”
I blogged about how We Got Married made me jealous of couples holding hands while driving so I learned how to drive one-handed . HAHAHA I also shared my January jams, which were quite few, sorry. Since I missed the deadline for Dramabeans’ theme of the month last January, I just posted my defense of web dramas here on my blog. Lastly, I recapped the first episode of Laughter in Waikiki! I’m glad I don’t have to recap it anymore too because it’s being recapped over at Dramabeans!
