Checking in on: That Man, Oh Soo [Evergreen] Episodes 2-4

Ohmygod, I don’t even know myself anymore. That Man, Oh Soo is not a great drama, not by a long shot. But why do I find it so easy to watch? Seriously, I was shocked at the end of the second episode that it’s over and I didn’t find it boring or I didn’t have the itch to fast-forward the show. WHAT SORCERY IS THIS? HAVE I BEEN DRINKING THAT MAGIC POLLEN? I saw the second, third, and fourth episode all in one go so what does that say about the show? Or about me? Hahaha! Anyway, my thoughts on the show after the cut! Continue reading →

Premiere Watch: That Man, Oh Soo [Evergreen]

HAHAHA what is with this poster? It looks like Lee Jong-hyun is all too happy to serve his customers laced drinks which killed them, while he has Kim So-eun and Kang Tae-oh as accomplices who just share a cup of coffee by the side. And that is why I used this much more interesting poster instead of the basic ones which focused on Jong-hyun and So-eun. Hahaha! Anyway, I wish I could recap with all the works for even just the first episode for you since Dramabeans doesn’t have it. But I honestly do not have the time. I’m just taking a not-so-quick break from my thesis time. So this time around, I’ll only share my thoughts on the first episode. Read on for more! Continue reading →

Look What We Got Married Made Me Do

vlcsnap-error082

I’ve been meaning to post about this one since November but I kept on forgetting to but better late than never, right?

Anyway, if you remember, I was O B S E S S E D with Gong Myung and Jung Hye-sung’s stint in We Got Married last November. I rewatched clips countless of times and I’ve spent the wee hours of the morning watching and rewatching them. They gave me so much joy, this sweet and adorable virtual couple.

Even though I love rom-coms, I rarely get that feeling of misery that I’m so alone and that I wish I had a special someone too. Seriously. I guess I just enjoy living vicariously through characters, without that wishful thinking that somehow I want to be them. I treat We Got Married as fictional, by the way, so it’s just like a romantic comedy kdrama to me. Except that the characters are celebrities I like.

So it was a surprise that I felt that pang of ~being single~ while watching Gong Myung and Jung Hye-sung’s We Got Married. Especially at that scene above, which was just the second episode, right after they met and were driving to go eat. Since Gong Myung drives with just one hand, Jung Hye-sung keeps on taking chances on holding his hand and later on, he does it too. Which made me go “aaaaaaaaaaawwww” and “I WANT TO HOLD SOMEONE’S HAND WHEN I DRIVE TOO”.

Then I remember watching Gong Seung-yeon and Lee Jong-hyun in We Got Married last August and noticing how much they hold hands inside the car too. I remember thinking that Jong-hyun needs to focus more on his driving because there was just so much skinship going on in that car! Hehehe but I still lapped it up. It’s so cute with Gong Myung though because he likes it when Jung Hye-sung initiates the car hand-holding but he always chides her too for doing so because he has to focus on his driving. I like a guy who’s into safe driving, okay. HAHAHA

And since I wanted to be able to do it too, I did the next logical step. Nope, I didn’t find myself a boyfriend because I’d just get stuck in that step. HAHAHA. I practiced driving with just one hand! And I’m glad to report to you that I’ve succeeded! I sometimes have to use my right hand still when I need more control since I’m still too scared and unconfident about my driving in general. But I can finally hold someone’s hand while driving! HAHAHA

WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE???

It was kinda saddening to realize though that I’d be the driver in my future relationship if I wanted to use the skills I’ve garnered when of course, I also want to be driven around. HAHAHAHA BUT WHATEVER. I don’t need to worry or be sad or feel anything because I’m not gonna use this ~skill~ anytime soon. I do, however, appreciate being able to rest whichever hand needs resting when I’m driving long distances.

AND THAT IS ALL I AM NOT EMBARRASSED AT ALL THAT I SHARED THIS NOPE NOT AT ALL *runs and hides*

Lee Jonghyun for ELLE Girl Korea

When my eyes first saw Jonghyun, I thought “ooohhh, vampire”. And here, he looks so pale he’s channeling some Edward Cullen. I think he’s a better fit for that role. More under the cut!
