Currently Watching: Hotel King

Hotel_King-p1

When I heard Lee Dong Wook was making a come back to the small screen, there were no words to describe how I felt at the time. Too happy. Too excited. Heart palpitates 200 beats per second. I could spazz all night just thinking of him. His bedroom eyes. His fairest skin of ‘em all. His abs… Oh my god, his abs! And his perfect posture. *facepalm* Here I go again *laughs*. But you know I’m not alone in spazzing over this perfect creature, I know a lot of ladies too. And then I found out the leading lady is Lee Da Hae. A pure beauty with bad acting skill. Oh boy… I cringed so badly. Flashback of her in Miss Ripley (which I couldn’t finish it – sorry Micky!), My Girl and Chuno. Seriously, they could have get rid of her character in Chuno. I seriously don’t get her existence in that almost perfect show… She slowed down the show. Just give me the men and their chocolate abs *giggles*.

Hotel-King3

For the longest time I was debating if I should start or skip Hotel King. But I love, love, love Dong Wook. I don’t care what people say about how bad his acting skill is. To me, if you compare him with Da Hae, he’s better! So I took drastic measure and told myself whatever… It’s for Dong Wook. Watch for Dong Wook. Live for Dong Wook. And so the journey began… It was June 1. It was my first day in Jakarta. Alone in my room. And guess what? I thought Da Hae wasn’t bad at all… She improved a little… But way better than I saw her in other dramas. But what’s up with that quirky, almost quacky voice she made??? Is that her interpretation of being cute? Errrrr… Sorry, Da Hae but you sounded ducky to me! Just speak properly for goodness sake!!!! *rolls eyes* ooooooh, sasaenghae *fist air*

Hotel King is a melo-romcom revenge drama. Does this category exists? Sure it does! In my head it does *laughs*. Why? As I’m shaking my head rewinding the show from the first episode until episode 28, I found that the show was funny at the beginning and suddenly the drama took a sharp U-turn and became melo and revengy. Urgh, the show must thank me for still watching it. It wasn’t as painful as you think, but I hate it when I got lured by the romance and comedy and then the show turned all serious on me. I hate pulling a straight face on the characters that made me laugh since the beginning. I do feel cheated a bit… But I should have known better. The title says it all. Hotel King. It’s a business drama. Oh boy, what have I got myself into?

Anyway, there is no turning back. I’ve invested all my emotions into this show and I’m happy to say, I am loving it! Yes, despite of what I have said earlier, I really care for this show. Every week I look forward for the latest episodes. The OTP is surprisingly very convincing. I ship them hard! Really, really hard! Cha Jae Wan is the hotel manager where Mo Ne’s late father used to own. Ah Mo Ne is the heiress where the hotel he’s working in. He’s a cold and arrogant yet a very confident manager. She’s a bubbly beauty who went back to Korea to save the legacy her dad had left. He thought she’s his sister. He’s trying to make her life miserable as a revenge thinking that her dad abandoned him. But when he found out that there is no blood relation between them, he felt relief. He became fond of her and she’s madly in love with him. At the same time, they both had to fight the man, Lee Joong Go, that raised him to become the man who he really is. It turns out, he’s been poisoned into thinking Mo Ne’s dad is his but turned out Joong Go is his dad! *cues horror song*

So this kind of madness mess yet juicy plots lured me every time. Wait till you find out who is Jae Wan’s mother… *rolls eyes*. Pure evil! My only argument is how can a mother doesn’t recognize her own child all this while? Did she really believe her child is dead? Really? She sure lost her mother instinct. *shaking ma head* Of course when she showed up in my screen, I have nothing but hate. She was the mean biatch I wanted to slap so hard! But I hate to call her biatch (even though I did) since she pre-warned Mo Ne not to trust her. But ya know what I mean… The more you said to people not to trust you, the more people take it otherwise…  I have nothing against the actress to be honest and obviously she did a wonderful job! She convinced me to hate her.

This week is the final week of Hotel King. My tablet has been cranky but you know I’m going to finish it as soon as the last two episodes are subbed. I think I’m going to finish it… The story can be weak at some part but it folded nicely. And for all I know, I only care that my OTP gets happy ending. They have awesome chemistry so I’m pretty sure they will. And as for you, if you are into business melo-romcom drama, this is a drama for you. Don’t feel intimidated by the word “business” coz they did not throw all sort of business technical term, it pretty much typical common sense plot. To be honest, I think you should give it a try… *shrugs* You might like it.

10364032_686302101462415_2445306439443735073_n

Itazura Na Kiss 2 – Love in Okinawa is almost airing soon!!!! I heard it is not a full season *womp* *booooo* but the season 2 is cut into two parts. As much as how disappointed I am, I DON’T CARE!!! I love all Itazura Na Kiss (Japanese, Taiwanese and Korean) and I’m ready to feel that bubbly love again! I love, love, love the OTP. I believe that Love in Okinawa is the part where the couple went on their honeymoon and they met another honeymooner and….. Well, I’m sure y’all already know the story *beams*.  Here are the pictures from their wedding… Aren’t they the cutest of all?

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Freedom is here…

minwoo

Hello and happy Wednesday! Freedom is around the corner, y’all! *twirls madly* What freedom am I talking about? My Ramadan! It is ending this weekend and I can see rows after rows of food before my eyes now! Waaaaaaaah… FOOOOOD! But I missed home food the most. I missed celebrating Eid (aka Raya in Malaysia/Singapore/Indonesia) with my family and friends. Being out in the boons (US is boons in my opinion), you can get pretty lonely. I wish I have close fam to celebrate my Eid with…

Since I’m a little exhausted by the heat and lack of liquid in my system, I’m going to keep this post short *fingers crossing*. Three men! Three different voices! Three different style of music! One is feeling lonely. One is feeling longing. And one is feeling happy! Go figure! *giggles*. Yes, my mood is all over the place… Without food, I’m lonely and longing for it. Once I had it, I’m happy as a clam!

The first song is  a sweet, sweet song by Seo In Guk for his High School King of Savvy drama OST. It is called Feeling Lonely. The song is beautifully composed. And Seo In Guk’s voice is beautiful! If you haven’t watch the drama already, well… go! Ga!

The next song is by someone or group I’ve never heard of! He or they are called Melody Bread. Funny name, ya? But wait… never judge the book by its cover or in this case, its name *laughs*. The minute the music starts, all hell broke lose with me. I was on the train when my friend Nikki sent me the link to this song. At the first pluck of the guitar, my heart started to feel remorse and nervous and suddenly I became longing for something. Yearning for something that is dear to my  heart… Yes, this is what the song made me. The song is called My Tears. It sure did bring me into tears…

Obviously I had to cheer myself after sobbing with Seo In Guk and Melody Bread… And here comes Parc Jae Jung! Nope, I don’t know him. But when I saw his MV, the first thing came to mind is…. That’s Eric #2! *laughs* And the song is of similar genre! How can I not possibly fall for him, right? I love Eric and Parc Jae Jung is second on my list now. Sorry, I have too many lovers I can hardly keep track… So please don’t ask me about my list! Anyway, get ready for a mood-lifting song of the week!

Uhm… Didn’t I say that this post is going to be short? I’m pretty  hopeless… *hang head low*. I was trying to hold myself together for not saying too much but look…! I can’t stop! What can I say… I get excited with music. I could say a lot but I’m running out of time… That’s all from me today! Annyeong!

Currently Watching: Two Mothers

Two_Mothers-p1

Yeap, me and my daily dramas again. We are kind of inseparable *giggles*. I don’t know *shrugs* why I’m suddenly drawn to it. The story plots are much more juicier and scandalous. LOL scandalous is my new favorite word by the way *grins*. Bel can vouch me on that! So anyway, since Ruby Ring is almost ending I decided to find a new replacement for a new revenge daily drama. Lena, Bel and I agreed that we should watch Two Mothers. The teaser preview was very convincing! The drama poster was so scary we fell for it immediately. And the synopsis of the show were extremely scandalous and downright stupid but we went on with the show regardless since we decided to watch it together.

Two-Mothers-Cuckoo-Nest_4

So last week was the week of doom. We saw the first 12 episodes. We watched. And we watched. And watched. We started yelling from the first episode. We shook out head in disbelief. Stupid! Ridiculous! Unbelievable! And __________ (insert your preferred cussing word). We thought the main female lead is utterly ridiculous. No! A crack! She accused people blatantly for the death of her oppa without concrete evidence. I mean… C’mon!!!! How stupid can you be! It was no Angel’s Revenge accident! This accident happened on broad daylight with many witnesses who can solemnly swear that her oppa died in a car accident, not murdered as she claim it to be. *shaking my head* she is stupid!

This morning Lena started watching episode 13. She had to fast forward some parts because she couldn’t stand the boring plots anymore. In order for the Hwa Young aka Grace Lee to revenge her oppa’s death (remember, her oppa got into an accident and not murdered), she started to seduce Byeong Kook, husband to her oppa’s ex. And then she did the most disgusting infidelity act that led me to decide this show is no longer worthy of a watch! She seduced her oppa’s ex’ dad! Now what kind of eff up revenge is this??? Hell NO! I have to put a stop on this! And because of that… I’m dropping Two Mothers. There is no value in this show. Very immoral. I do not want to be part of such nonsense, stupid and disgusting drama. This is a 100 episode drama and it is still airing. I do not want to waste my 60+ hours… *taps on back* This is the best decision I’ve ever made. Please… save your time, DO NOT WATCH Two Mothers. Plus, it is so boooooooring and predictable! Yeah… *nods* toss this drama away!

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Body Parts

Mask-Black-White-Wallpaper

Good morning, chingu! And happy Wednesday! How are you all doing today? I’m doing fabulous! I feel good. Physically good. The new workout I started last week is doing its magic and my body never felt so good! My arms are defined in a strong way… The muscles are forming nicely and extending my arms longer. I feel taller too. I hope the next part I get to work on is my abs, the trouble maker. I’ve been out of shape since early this year. I’m carrying extra weigh at the moment *sigh* and it’s too much on this small frame. I’m trying to commit into this workout for the next 2 months and I hope to see a tone body by the end of August. Just in time for my Twitter gathering I say *winks*.

Speaking of body parts, I wanna know which Eyes Nose Lips do you like the most? Taeyang’s? Tablo’s? Eric’s? Or AKMU?

I can honestly say each version is different! I love Taeyang’s version. No, no, no, no… I love Tablo’s. That voice, that crisp rap voice but wait…. Eric’s acoustic version is also awesome! And then a little twist, a duet by the siblings AKMU. Eeotteoke???? *screams* I can’t decide!!!! Each singer has their own uniqueness. The song itself is magnificent. I’m so, so in love with this song so so much. Thanks to my sis, Heart_YB, for making me listen to this song. She was so excited when YG released the song she stayed up all night long memorizing the lyric word by word. Not that’s what we called a true fangirl!

Amuden, tell me which version you like?

Just Watched: Vampire’s Flower

vf1

This webdrama was never on my radar until I saw NeeNee posted her review on Vampire’s Flower two days ago. I read her post and was intrigue by it immediately. It’s a web drama first of all so the length of each episode is short short, and it has 6 episodes only. Thanks to NeeNee, I finished all of the episodes in one sitting and if you decide to watch it, the episodes are available on YouTube. Anyway, back to Vampire’s Flower… As I read some of the review, a few readers compare it to Korean version of the Twilight saga. Well, I’m not a fan of Twilight nor I haven’t seen a single of it… *shrugs* I’m not interested. That’s all. *ducks from Twilight fans*

vf2

The story is pretty simple. I thought it was kinda juvenile in a way. I mean *shrugs*, it is so high school and the cast is pretty young. I only know the main female lead, Kim Ga Eun. I recognized her from I Hear Your Voice and Inspiring Generation. But the rest of the boyz… nope. The main male lead, Louis, is played by Seo Jae Hyeong aka Jae Hyeong from kpop group, A-Jax. This is his first acting gig. I say not bad, kiddo! Not bad at all. Another male lead is played by Kim Hyung Koon, also a member of A-Jax. He plays Reika. I guess this web drama is a gateway for these boys to enter the acting world. Kudos to these two… They made the show enjoyable and believable.

vf3

Oooh, sorry… I got steered by the boys, didn’t I? I’m such a naughty noona *sticks her tongue out*. Let’s get back to the story. Louis is a 150 year old vampire, looking for the missing vampire’s flower. Louis came to know Seo Yeong through her blood, she accidentally cut herself at the flower shop her family once owned it. She occasionally visited the shop with her high school friend there. Louis is a regular at the shop as well, looking for the missing flower human has stole many, many years ago. The drip of the blood from Seo Yeong led him to her. Ever since then, he haunted her night and day for the missing flower. The flower is very important to Louis because if the flower is in his possession, he gets to be the vampire lord every vampire is dreaming of. Of course, the road for the flower is not easy. Louis had to go through all the trouble including facing his own death which later was revived by Seo Yeong through her blood.

This web drama is ahhhhh-mazing. It is still juvenile but the adventure I went through on these 6 episodes was awesome! Because it is very short, I do feel that the story could have been developed better had it go through a longer episode. I hate filling in the gap. The chemistry is great. I really wish there are more vampire – human romance in a future. I highly recommend this drama. It’s a great watch and break between my 12 other dramas! And did I mention there are action scenes too? Daebak scenes *two thumbs up*. Gotcha… palli and watch!
