Currently Watching: Love Affairs in the Afternoon

WmXwXf

It is 3 pm somewhere, right? If you have seen Hirugao, I am sure you know what I mean. The Koreans aka Channel A decided to do a remake of Hirugao with the same title: Love Affairs in the Afternoon. Yup, a forbidden love drama that can be so romantic, so innocent, so naive yet so nerve-racking. I feel so nervous as if I am in this affairs with them as well. So far, 12 episodes have aired and I have been nervous watching it ever since especially episode 6, 7 and 8. I had to take a breather because my heart was palpitating so hard for them.

Just Watched: Justice, My Foot!

I was bored one time and decided to watch Justice, My Foot!, a 1992 Hong Kong movie that is currently available on Netflix. I cringed immediately because it has been a while since I last saw a Cantonese drama or movie. I also cringed at the way they acted. Mind you, because it was an old movie, the acting is definitely not as par as movies today. The language tickles me as always but also brought back good memories. I understand Cantonese but never dare to speak it in public. I initially saw this with family and everyone had a good laugh! But I finally finished it myself because I knew no one was interested or even care if they see the ending.

Currently Watching: Hotel del Luna

I was not keen on starting Hotel del Luna at first. Maybe because at the time, I was still recovering from my illness. And when I started watching the first episode, I did not get a good vibe. Not only it is because of Hong sisters’ drama, I feared that the drama reminded me of Goblin even though it was not written by them. Mimi from The Talking Cupboard pointed out to me of Master’s Sun instead and I immediately cannot deny the similarity. The glamorous set. The richness. The beautiful cast. The luxurious brands. Yup, I can’t deny this drama won my heart now. Either way, I feel that it is a marriage of two dramas which to be honest resulted in a very interesting and engaging fantasy drama.

Just Watched: Criminal for the Prosecution

Well, another movie I saw on the plane. This time, it is called Criminal for the Prosecution. I was not planning on watching it but there were not many interesting movies onboard. I saw Kimura Takuya and Ninomiya Kazumari aka Nino on the movie poster so I thought it would not be bad. I was wrong. While the premise and the story were interesting, the loopholes were too many. I felt lost because there were many untold and unexplained plots – hoping that you would fill in the gap yourself. It is impossible for me to do so since I did not read the novel. I was a bit disappointed but the execution part by Kimura and Nino were awesome. They really put a lot of their skills into this movie.

Just Watched: The Travelling Cat Chronicles

I had to watch something on the plane and chose The Travelling Cat Chronicles. The word “cat” got me jump into watching this movie immediately. What can I say? I am addicted to cats. However, I was fooled by the title. The way I read it, it sounds as if it is a journal movie about a cat or a cat traveling to find his long lost owner. You know, like one of those Hollywood animal movies. But 30 minutes into it, I realized this is not just a movie about Nana the cat. It is also about his life with his owner, Satoru.
