Film Review: Veteran (2015) + The Throne (2015) | Belated Happy Birthday, Yoo Ah-in!

yaiIt was Yoo Ah-in’s birthday last Friday so I thought of finally reviewing these two movies of his that I’ve seen. I’ve loved Yoo Ah-in since 2010, when he made everyone suffer from Second Lead Syndrome in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I was even a contributor for one of his international fan sites. (I tend to be obsessive, okay.) BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OPPA!!! (Forgive me for being late. Huhu. This was supposed to be posted last Friday but I got so busy and I wasn’t able to finish the reviews.)

Premiere Watch: While You Were Sleeping

whileyouweresleeping-poster1

THIS IS SO NOT PART OF MY PLAN! I wasn’t supposed to watch While You Were Sleeping. For one, I am not a big fan of Lee Jong-seok. Don’t brick me, I think he’s a good actor but I’m not following each and every project he makes. Second, Suzy. We all know she isn’t a talented actress so I don’t exactly look forward to her dramas. And lastly, I gave it a chance and checked out the teasers and the trailer but I wasn’t enticed by them. So I was set to pass on this one. But here I am, telling you my thoughts on While You Were Sleeping‘s premiere week. Life is indeed full of surprises.

KDrama Review: Magic Cellphone + Love for a Thousand More

winner-web-dramas

For this round, I’ll be talking about two Korean web dramas with WINNER members as leads. (I am getting too deep into this fandom.) I’ve seen both on the same week and I can’t promise that I won’t compare their acting abilities. Still, I love both members, okay. My thoughts on these web dramas under the cut!

Film Review: So I Married an Anti-fan (2016) + My Annoying Brother (2016)

exoIt’s an EXO edition for this film review post! There was a night when Lianne and I saw both movies one after the other. She watched for Chanyeol and I was there for Kyungsoo (D.O.). My thoughts on both movies are under the cut!

KDrama Review: Ex-Girlfriend Club

I binged Ex-Girlfriend Club last June (I know, I am very late with writing about what I’ve seen, hence the creation of my weekly round-ups) after reading and getting convinced by javabeans’ review on Dramabeans. It was a low-commitment series, with only 12 episodes. It’s also available on iflix so it was easily accessible. So how was it? My thoughts on the show under the cut!

Checking in on: Strongest Deliveryman Episodes 1-12

I’ve seen all available twelve episodes of this show and MY HEART IS SO FULL. I was supposed to write this right away, while my feelings were fresh, but I ended up unable to because MY FEELINGS WERE SO FRESH. Seriously, I was so giddily happy last Thursday and it’s been a long time since I’ve felt that due to a kdrama. (JDramas excluded!) The last was probably during Suspicious Partner. Anyway, I’ve seen all twelve episodes in three days (Tuesday to Thursday) and I’m still too giddy to talk about this one. But I’ll try. My thoughts under the cut! (Needless to say, there will be some spoilers!) Continue reading “Checking in on: Strongest Deliveryman Episodes 1-12”

KDrama Review: Splish Splash Love

I can’t even remember why I decided to watch Splish Splash Love back then. Maybe it was because I’ve loved Yoon Doo-joon since he debuted as a member of B2ST (now Highlight) and I wanted to see how he acts since I heard he was funny. Maybe it was because I was curious about Kim Seul-gi’s comedic chops. Maybe because time travel will always be a catnip for me. Maybe because it was only two episodes, I mean, some movies are longer than that and I can sit through them. Maybe it was a combination of all these. But the one thing I for sure can say is how watching Splish Splash Love is still one of the best kdrama decisions I’ve ever made. What a perfect little thing. More squealing and some more gifs under the cut! Continue reading “KDrama Review: Splish Splash Love”

Film Review: Fabricated City (2017) | Bye, Wookie HUHUHU

Ji Chang-wook has left for the army today (ANDWAEEEEEEE) and I decided to send him off by watching his latest film, Fabricated City, which was a blockbuster success early this year. I’ll be mostly babbling about the film so if you have nothing better to do then go read my thoughts on Fabricated City! Continue reading “Film Review: Fabricated City (2017) | Bye, Wookie HUHUHU”

Premiere Watch: Manhole (Episode 1 Recap)

I’ve been pretty vocal about my excitement for Manhole and IT’S FINALLY HERE! Manhole premiered yesterday and unsurprisingly, was at the last of the ratings race. I do hope it fares better as the weeks go by as I liked what I saw and I’m excited for all the hijinks. I ended up not being able to follow Reunited Worlds week by week as originally planned so my Wed-Thu kdrama slot is actually free. Would Manhole make the cut? Let’s see!

Premiere Watch: Falsify (Episodes 1-2 Recap)

No rest for the wicked(ly talented) Namgoong Min as he’s on his second headlining drama this 2017 with Falsify, which premiered yesterday and led the race ratings-wise. Despite premiering a week later than its competitors, Falsify got double the ratings. I don’t know if it’s the Namgoong Min magic, as his previous drama Chief Kim was also a hit in Korea, or if the audience just wants to tune in to a drama about journalists fighting off corruption, or this star-studded ensemble cast. Either way, I’m curious to see if Falsify lives up to its ratings. Let’s check it out! Continue reading “Premiere Watch: Falsify (Episodes 1-2 Recap)”
