Just Watched: Space Sweepers

If you are looking into watching something fun and entertaining, please consider Space Sweepers which is available on Netflix. Let me just say this: the graphic is impressive! I know Koreans don’t do well in sci-fi genre movies or dramas, but I see an improvement here. I wonder if it is supported by talents from other countries… Regardless, Space Sweepers was a good movie! My husband agreed, too (he’s hard to impress)!

Just Watched: Love Alarm

I have been wanting to watch Love Alarm ever since it aired on Netflix but work travel got into my way at the time and eventually, I started to forget about its existence. I only realized it again when I saw Love Alarm 2 promotion! Last week, I decided to take my time catching up with the show but needless to say, I enjoyed it so much I finished the first season in 3 days! Well, granted that it is only 8 episodes long, I thought the show is super decent and quite addictive. I am not a fan of high school romance but thankfully, the show moved on to college life after episode 4. Phew!

Just Watched: Piece of Cake

Piece of Cake? More like a piece of mess! But no, I did not regret watching it. It is a filler in the background while I finish up my work assignments this evening. I don’t pay much attention but I could see the flaws, the weak writing, and messy plots. I would credit the acting though especially between Ayano Go and Tabe Mikako in their last scene together. But really… I rolled my eyes watching them bickering for a good 5 minutes and then starting to kiss. What was the argument for?

Just Watched: A Love So Beautiful

A remake of the original A Love So Beautiful? I signed up immediately! I enjoyed the original version which was in Chinese. I was worried that the Koreans would butcher it. I held my breath and started watching this version with an open mind. I am so glad I did because not only it follows the show exactly as the original (well, almost), I thought it is way funnier and cuter than the Chinese version. The soundtrack is cute and the actress, So Ju Yeon, is super adorable! How is she is 27?

Just Watched: Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu: Ganbare Jinrui! Shinshun Special!!

The anticipated special episode is finally out! My friend did not like it and I suggested giving it another watch. While she saw it as soon as it became available, I had to wait for two months for the show to get subbed. I believe I made the right decision by not rushing it. My friend said that the episode seems rushed. I mean… it was a 2-hour long episode and the producer/director crammed everything into one long episode. It is true, they should have broken up this special episode into 4 30-minute or 8 15-minute episodes. I understand it would cost the network… and shooting the show in this pandemic time? Nightmare! *shakes head*

Currently Watching: Mr. Queen

Mr. Queen is my current crack drama! I never thought that this drama would be so good and so funny! At episode 15, I still found myself enjoying it a lot! Yes, I may say that as it has been smooth sailing so far but I know the sh*t is about to hit the fan soon. It is impossible to watch a drama without a storm, right? And as usual, when I started watching a drama, I did not know what exactly the show is about. I saw Mr. Queen‘s trailers and thought they were funny. However, when I started watching the first episode, I got really confused because the drama is set in the present time. You can imagine my confusion. Where is my Shin Hye Sun? Why is Choi Jin Hyuk on my screen? Yup, I was confused and panicked. I looked at the title. It says, Mr. Queen! What is going on?
