It seems like 2017 is going out with a bang drama wise for me! There are soo many shows I loved in this last quarter of the year! This is one of them. This is a story of 4 friends, their love life’s, their struggles and most importantly their friendships.
I am a big Jung Ryeo Won fan but this drama was not on my radar to watch in the beginning. I started watching more and more lately and I do not want it to take over my life again. Well, Bel said I should watch it because she knew I would love it. And she’s right! Not only I enjoyed watching it, I became a bit obsessed with it! The episodes suck me into it. And this drama keeps getting better and better! Jung Ryeo Won is fabulous here! She nails her character as Prosecutor Ma Yi Deum. She is so awesome. Very flawed yet she made it so real. And this is what we need… A cold-hearted, egoistic, arrogant, clumsy, self-righteous yet flawed female lead! Ma Yi Deum is my current favorite character of all of my current airing drama.
When I heard the first lead pairing for Because This is My First Life, I simply could not accept it. I love Jung So Min so much especially from her recent weekend drama, My Father is Strange. But I was way on top of my head and I just could not picture sweet So Min with Lee Min Ki. I may have judged him by his looks. To me, his rough feature does not fit the rom-com genre. Also, this is my first time watching him as a lead. I was first introduced to him in Shut Up: Flower Boy Band but his presence was too short for me to like or dislike. I have never seen his other works, especially in movies.
First of all, I must credit kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict for this watch. I started Girls’ Generation 1979 one night and completely forgotten all about it. Kfangurl’s blog post on the show prompted me to go back and finish it. I can’t believe I missed it completely. The first episode was so awesome. For some reason, it gave me fond memories growing up in the 80s even though the show was based in the year 1979. And I am quite surprised by the lack of attention this show got. I wonder why? I really loved this drama. Yes, it is super chick flick but it was pack with emotions. It reminded me of the Reply series which I adore so, so much!
We have been hearing about this movie for a while. Each time we started it, something came up. But finally, today my son and I were able to sit through the entire movie. But this show uses foul lingo which I continuously reminding my kiddo to not use it since I don’t use it. *coughs* Bel knows I only use it in private *giggles*. Anywho, this movie is available on Netflix if you are interested in watching. Ahn Seo Hyun plays Mija and she was wonderful as the lead.
This rare gem is definitely not a popular pick among Kdrama watchers. I only saw few people on my Tlist. Too bad because for me, Borg Mom is sort of my daily drama fix. Only shorter. 12 episodes short. But it is no daily drama, it feels very sitcom-ish. It is pretty funny. Definitely a show that gets me excited these days. The best of all is Park Han Byul. I first saw her in Freeze but her role was not very memorable. This is my first time watching her as a lead.
Well, peeps…. I checked out Once Upon A Time. I saw it. I chewed it. And I’m spitting out my *beep* opinion in here. It was terrible! I felt nothing. No reaction at all. They spent gajillion money on CGI and actors but could not get the story right. I knew it would be impossible to cram the stories into an hour and 40 minutes movie. It would make sense if they focus on just the main couple but even that I just think they are incapable of turning the story around. So here how my face looked like the entire time watching the movie…
