Currently Watching: Death Cash

Death_Cash-p02

Death Cash reminds me of the Final Destination movie franchise. But it is a lot more horrid. All death associated with cash. And they aren’t just regular cash, they are Death Cash. The type of cash that would cost your life. Scary right? You won’t know when you will get it. For anything, I could be getting one anytime soon! *screams* This what happens to Yuka’s friends. They all ended up dead. Their death are pretty gruesome, too! I can’t even tell you. Some of the death are too shocking…

死幣

The episodes are not easy to watch  even though I marathon the first three ones just like that. The episodes are pretty short. They are less than 30 minutes long. But the context makes it as if you’re watching an hour-long show. I’m not going into details in my review today because my drama buddy Bel is recapping it. So far, 6 episodes have aired though I have yet to watch the episode 6. I’m not really sure how many episodes Death Cash has. I’m going to assume no more than 11 episodes long. So far, I’m really liking it. Some parts can be quite slow and draggy but they are necessary elements before the buildup to the next death.

Death Cash is not for everyone. I’m surprised that I get this far with the show. I have a weak heart you see but for some reason, this show makes me curious. How this death legend got started (you will get your answer in episode 5)? And how it get spread out like that? Also, why is occurred among Yuka’s friends? Lots of questions; hence the reason I’m watching it. If you are interested in reading recaps, here they are: episode 1, episode 2, episode 3 and episode 4. Good luck!

Currently Watching: Suki na Hito ga iru koto

 

w700_b4e2e698f832350f1b227d09636e91165c310b9d82dac468

Like I said in my previous post, the title keeps getting longer and longer. Do I remember all of them? Heck no. And character names? Nope, either. Thanks to MDL; otherwise, I would have gone mad!!!! So what is the meaning behind the title? A Girl & Three Sweethearts by literally it means There’s Someone I Like. Hmmmmm *rubs chin* who likes who now? As my other Japanese dramas, Suki na is another weekly drama. It airs every Monday and slated to end on September 12. I’m not sure the final date is still standing. I think this drama is another Olympic’s victims. I’m still waiting for Aquarium Girl final two episodes… *sigh*

mv_photo_02

The reason I’m watching this drama, besides Bel‘s strong influence on me *giggle*, is because of Yamazaki Kento. I have been falling in love with this boy since Suikyuu Yankees. And then I fell for him again in movie L<3DK. And then I realized, Kento once acted next to Kiritani Mirei in Heroine Disqualified! Omo, perfect combo! I love these two together in big screen! Their chemistries were tight!  Omo, I’m in love already with the cast! Furthermore, we got Miura Shohei!!!! The man is twice more desirable here than he was in Please Love The Useless Me! And last, but not least, is Nomura Shuhei. I saw him in Koinaka. He didn’t leave any bold impression on me. He didn’t leave any good one in this show, too. His character is very teen so I see him like a little brother.

Anyway, the title gives it all! A girl and three sweethearts. She’s lucky! Can we trade places, Misaki??? *giggles* But who would she choose, right? 6 episodes in, we can certainly eliminate Touma. Misaki sees him the same way I see him. A younger brother.  So we can now focus on Chiaki, the eldest, and Kanata, the milder one. The brothers live in Shonan and run a family restaurant. Chiaki is the restaurant manager and Kanata is the chef. Misaki was offered to work at Chiaki’s restaurant as the pastry chef when she stumbled on him one night.

1-7-728x421

So long story short, Chiaki was Misaki’s first love. Misaki accepted a challenge from her girlfriend that she will be kissed by a man by the end of summer (is it summer?). So Chiaki’s offer came at the right time. When she moved to the town, Misaki buttheaded with Kanata. But, on that very same week, she was kissed by him! *gasp* I know!!!! But I immediately knew that Misaki and Kanata should be together forever. The only problem is… Misaki can’t take Chiaki off her mind! So it is like Kanaka wants Misaki but gets turn off because of her heart, mind, and soul is with Chiaki. And then we have Kaede, Chiaki’s ex. They are friends now but after she found out Misaki is interested in Chiaki, she became possessive and started announcing that they are a couple.

story_02_01

This drama is a very summery and darling romance. I treasure it so much. I love the feeling Mirei portrays as Misaki. She’s girlish, childish, yet dedicated. I love the way she sees life mostly. Suki na Hito ga iru koto is definitely a sweet drama everyone should watch. That pitter patter feeling you get from watching romance? You’ll definitely get it here. If not, either you’re heartless or I am easily pleased! *wink*

Here’s a sweet fanvid made by Lee JJang. The song is just so appropriate!!! I’m sorry, by this time I already have my pick for Misaki! Do you? *raises a brow*

 

 

Song of the Moment: Scarlet Heart’s Just You

71g7DZ71_02fec4_f

Are you all ready for Scarlet Heart: Ryeo??? I saw the Chinese version Bu Bu Jing Xin but couldn’t finish it. I really hope the Korean version one is more interesting. But lookie, the first OST is already out! Thanks to the EXO boys for lending their voices, Just You is a sweet and tender song pack with powerful and soulful vocal. The song really touches deep into my heart. Chen’s voice is especially awesome, he always gives me the chills to my spine bone. This song is just…. Too much to handle right now. Yeap, I’m tearing up a bit. Happy tears, of course!

Now I can’t wait to hear UI’s voice for Scarlet Heart OST!!! I’m a huge fan of her voice! Soon I hope!

W-Two Worlds: Fangirling Over Lipseu Episode 9

01e8EAk4_8bfe88_f

Me: The WTFuckery episode is here!!!! It is insane!!! Half of the time, my jaw was on the floor!

w

Me: Who betrayed who now? I’m so lost!

Erl: I’m not sure Nelly, I’m lost like you. This guy is everywhere! OMG!

Mari: Seriously! How can you stop an assassin that only has one purpose? Also, one that can teleport into a plane! A freaking plane up in the sky! 

w

Mari: The torture of my heart begins now! Sigh* He wakes up crying and it’s right after he was stabbed on the rooftop. So we are going back in time! 

Me: Subconsciously he remembers her? Maybe?

Erl: I think he does, why the tears if not? And ugh, yes, their back in time. Reset.. T__T

w

Erl: Run Soo-bong, don’t ever come back puppy! Save yourself!

Mari: This poor assistant. Who is going to pay for his therapy when this is done? Think of all he has had to deal with. 

Me: I don’t know about that but he will be traumatized forever!

FotorCreated

Erl: This gives a new meaning to message from the past or from another dimension. “Here, have this USB, this holds the answer. Oh and even better, you can check the manhwa you’re writing, the clues are all there.” Yup, that works.

Me: Wow, so he read his own manhwa too? Are we to assume that the manhwa is writing its own story from now on?

Mari: So I’m assuming dad landed in Australia & immediately took a plane back to SK? What did Kang Chul send him? Also, I hate that iPhone can’t use memory cards. What if one day I need to send you guys secret information from another reality? How will I get this done? 

w

Me: So….. How long did she go for? I could use a car. I mean… the door is open. And it is quite inviting!

Erl: My thoughts exactly. I doubt she took the key with her. Any idea how long did she gone for?

Mari: If it’s like the other times she was only gone for half an hour in the real world. So technically if you happen to go by in those thirty minutes, you could get a new car, Nelly. 

Me: I’m on it, Mari!

FotorCreated

Mari: This is emotional abuse! I want to punch him in the face. Fine, he does not know she’s in pain but he needs to shut his face! 

Erl: Well, he’s the senior staff and she’s the “junior” sooo.. It’s correctly portrayed? Just saying. But I’m with you, Mari. I, too, want to punch his lights out.

Me: Urgh I hate him. Really, he is so insensitive!

w

Mari: thank you for the arrow. Lol this scene needed some levity. This manhwa is being so cruel to her. She gets to see the love of her life, but he does not remember her!! *fetal position on floor crying for Oh YeonJoo* 

Me: You’re welcome!!! That’s all I see! *wiggles brows*

Erl: There’s nothing to see there. No applebutts. Sad, just like Oh Yeon-joo. Wait, she’s sadder.

FotorCreated

Erl: Let me take a minute to process this okay, give me a minute to appreciate the scene.

Mari: Darn they are pretty! But I’m starting to feel bad for tree puppy. He has had maybe 5 lines in 10 episodes? 

Me: Yeah, they pretty much used him for his face. That ain’t bad, he still gets some screen time.

FotorCreated

Erl: WOW! Is it just me or is Mr. Assistant hotter with facial hair, I mean RAWR. Can he keep it? He’s hot and freaking out still.

Me: He even got amulets? Will it help though? I wanna pet this scrubby boy, though. Poor thing…

Mari: I’m telling you guys, he will need years of therapy. So we are getting our “happy ending”. Does writer Oh not care that his happy ending hurts his daughter!

w

Me: What on earth? Is this the best solution he can come out with???

Erl: Apparently it is and I believe it’s the only way. But it freaks me out a bit, he lending his face to a killer. It’s freaky but can’t be helped.

Mari: It makes sense because they need Kang Chul to believe he this guy the killer. Kang Chul already knows this man tried to kill him earlier. Once they write a motive, he should be able to accept it. 

w

Erl: How old is this Doctor again? He’s acting like a complete teenager. Of course, I do that sometimes too but he is completely out of it!

Mari: Fine! I get that he does not know he is hurting her. I still want to push him off a building! 

Me: But he’s truly a fan of that manhwa, I kind of dig that, though.

FotorCreated

Me: The character on the left never took off, right? He was used to diverting attention, correct?

Erl: This guy used Kang Chul’s case as a publicity tactic so he can rise to power as a politician. He didn’t consider the possibility that Kang Chul was innocent so when the real culprit comes out, he arranged for the hit. It’s a brilliant plot line, I’ll give it to Yeon-Joo’s dad. Hopefully, it happens the way they want it to be.

Mari: I’ll admit to being confused here! I might had also gotten distracted. When I looked at my screen Killer dad was flying off the building. 

w

Mari: *rocks back & forth in pain* stop making me suffer show! These is sad, heartbreaking and a bit creepy! Girl, how old are you? You can’t have cartoons on your wall anymore. 

Me: Don’t we used to do this when we were in high school? What else can she do, Mari? She doesn’t have any pictures of him… *cries*

Erl: I did it until college. Actually, a poster of the F4 is still on the door of my old room. Anyway, I’ll probably do the same thing that she did, only I’ll put it in a photo album. And I’ll carry it around. *more torture*

w

Me: I don’t know… You tell me! I’m so confused how she still gets transported back to manhwa. What is it about her that makes it easy to jump into the story? *scratches head*

Mari: Well the first few times was because Kang Chul still has some memories of her. They might have been subconsciously triggered. Have any of you ever remember something then immediately forgotten it? Is that just me in my old age? Anyhow, I think now she got sucked back in the manhwa because her dad’s plan did not go the way they planned. No one expected the killer to be smarter than them. Now she needs to help her dad & of course Kang Chul. 

Erl:  Yeah, I have that sometimes. I did something then after awhile I’ll suddenly remember it but I’m not sure if I really did it. Must be the age thing. And I agree with you Mari, that could be the case since Kang Chul, even if he can’t remember her is still connected to Yeon-Joo. He’s  her brainchild.

FotorCreated

Erl: Wait a minute, WHAT HAPPENED? NOOOOOOO!!!!! This is so gonna be my nightmare!

Me: Now this WTFuckery!!!!!!

Mari: Dear writers, I’m also sending you my therapy bills!! 

w

Mari: Frak! Frak! Frak! The killer is one step ahead of them! Dear writer Oh, on your next manhwa make your killer dumb. 

Me: Dumb??? For once, I really want the killer to be smarter than the rest!

Erl: Or next time you make a manhwa be certain with the characters, give them a face so they won’t take yours and freak everyone out! Question, though. How many rounds does that gun have? He seems to be not running out of bullets. *scratches chin*

w

Me: Where does he thinks he is going??? Oy… *headache*

Mari: Frak! Frak! Frak!! Seriously! He can still teleport? Who is writing these rules? They can’t just constantly be changing to fit the plot! 

Erl: There’s no change, he outsmarted Writer Oh. He’s creating his own rules and he gets to keep his ability to teleport. He really should have given him a solid identity in the first place. Now it’s too late. All hell is breaking lose.

Final Thoughts

Me: I really don’t have any thoughts! Well… Maybe I do. I’m still speechless to why he put his face on the assassin! Is this means… The assassin showed up at his place, took his face away and went back to W world? Is that what it is? Help me understand, ladies!!!!

Mari: I’m confused too! But here’s what I think. Dad & Kang Chul agreed on a plan to get rid of the assassin & close the manhwa with a happy ending. It seemed like a good plan, everyone got their corresponding end. They just never got a chance to implement said plan because the assassin had his own plan? I don’t know why he needed to steal the face? I think that was just put in the story to shock us. As to why the assassin needed to be Writer oh, I explained it earlier. It makes sense in a weird way. Maybe I don’t make sense either. I’ll take questions below!

Erl: I’m blown away by this episode. It appears answers won’t be presented only more questions asked. I agree with Mari’s theory, though, there was an agreement between Dad and Kang Chul – to end everything accordingly, not some half-assed ending but an ending that makes sense, an acceptable one. Too bad that when the “reset” happened, it seems that it only affected Kang Chul. True it brought the assassin back in the manhwa but he’s still as powerful as ever. It scares me to think where he disappears to now cause he can be anywhere. Heck, he can be in the real world right now. Now that’s really freaky if it really happens.

W-Two Worlds: Fangirling Over Lipseu Episode 8

01e8EAk4_8bfe88_f

Me: I found this episode a bit boring. The whole context was fine but the frequent flashback really put me to snooze! The episode is a bit…. frustrating? I don’t know how  else to put it. If the writer wanted to give the assassin his own episode, at least, make it right! The back and forth switching between Kang Chul and the assassin just annoyed me.

Mari: See I rather like this episode! I was ok with the sweet romance but I need some action! Let’s move this story along! Plus I was right! Much like Kang Chul, the assassin also became real because of her dad.

FotorCreated

Mari: Did Kang Chul just missed the whole conversation with the assassin? The assassin change the story! He could not let Kang Chul die because he needs a reason to exists.

Erl: He wanted a confirmation, something logical enough that he can accept. That’s on of the traits I love about him. His craving for things to make sense. It’s a perfect irony.

Me: The story is, once again, changing courses again! This is freaky!!!

W

Me: The one in the middle is my style although I prefer the dress to be pinkier than that!

Erl: I want the middle one too but I want it in a shade of blue.

Mari: I’ll take the black & white one! You can’t see it in this pictures but I like that one!

Me: The very revealing one?

W

Mari: See!!! This is why I want the black dress! He likes it!!! We must please him! I obviously need mental help.

Me: You’re sick, Mari!!! I’m all about girly… *wink*

Erl: LOL. Somehow I was expecting him to say something like this. Nope, Mari, we all need mental help. We’re all a bit pervy here.

FotorCreated

Erl: How is it that the character of a manhwa created by a living person knows better about the characters more than the creator himself? Creepy! He has a complete grasp of the killer too.

Mari: what I said a few pictures ago. The assassin needs a purpose!

Me: So Kang Chul is giving the assassin what he wants?

W

Me: Meanwhile… Someone is definitely in la la land!

Mari: lol but she’s right, the Prince of England could be there!

Erl: So are other princes from other parts of the world. She didn’t choose the revealing dress…

Me: She is ME!

FotorCreated

Mari: wow… That assassin is a very good sniper. I wonder where he was standing?

Erl: If there’s a building that’s higher than Kang Chul’s hotel, that’s my best bet. The rooftop. It’s the best perch for a head shot that’s that clean. Sorry, too much Counter-Strike and spy film plus Harlequin Intrigue.

Me: Was that not one of the most graceful drop from her?

W.png

Me: Where are the people???? Why can’t they hire more extras?

Erl: I thought I was alone in that thought. Otherwise CGI?

Mari: They used all their budget hiring artist to draw the comics. Duh!

FotorCreated

Me: Why is he repeating what she said? He sure is curious!

Mari: let him!! We get to stare at his face more!!! Lovely.

Erl: I will love it even more if he would pout. ^_^

FotorCreated

Erl: What kind of question is that? That’s not logical, what kind of father would let something bad happen to his own child? Just think about it, think about it!

Mari: So do we all agree that some unknown power is drawing this manhwa now? Because she’s obviously not, and her father is on the longest plane ride ever.

Me: He didn’t! She should tell Kang Chul that the manga is writing its own story now! But who, Mari?

W

Me: She’s bleeding! This can’t be good!!!! She is turning into a cartoon character, right?

Erl: I think so too. She seems to be completely tied to the manhwa since she tied the knot with Kang Chul.

Mari: well this is confusing, what changed? Why is she able to bleed now?

W

Erl: Who gets drunk with wine? I’m expecting soju here, SOJU! Alcohol aside can we take note how sorry I am for her?

Mari: I would feel more sorry for her if she was played by a better actress. This one is just whiny & annoying.

Me: Honestly, if I’m her, I will feel cheated. By I don’t think Kang Chul ever show any remote feeling towards her… And I don’t think he ever promises her anything.

FotorCreated

Erl: That’s right, write your own story dude. You do you!

Me: And all of a sudden I get so many suggested pins on my Pinterest board on how to create a perfect character for  your own story. Hmmm…. Handsome. Tall. Handsome. Tall. Genius. Knows martial art. Hmmm…. The list could go on and on.

Mari: I now  know how to become the main character. Just in case I ever get stuck in a manhwa.

FotorCreated

Mari: ahh so that was the purpose of his monologue. She needed to understand what’s going on.

Me: W-Two Worlds is turning into a daily drama! There are lots of monologues in dailies!

Erl: We also needed to confirm our speculations.

W

Me: OMG!!!! Now I get it!!!! He followed Kang Chul to our world!!!!

Mari: *side eyes unnie* took you this long unnie? Also, why did Kang Chul not close it before he left?

Me: this eonnie is slooooooooowwwww!

Erl: I don’t think Kang Chul has the ability to close the “portal.” Also, I think the killer became self-aware when Kang Chul crossed it.

FotorCreated

Mari: dude, your girl can now die in both worlds! How are you going to fix this?

Erl: Gah, I bet he’s frustrated as hell trying to figure out how to save his girl.

Me: So… When will he be cross back to our world? He needs to find the assassin!

W

Erl: Dang that voice, bone chilling.

Mari: seriously who’s doing this voice? It’s beyond creepy! Also, the writing freaks me out!

Me: Is it not digitize?

FotorCreated

Mari: wtf!! Wtf!!! Not fair! You can’t have the villain teleport! No! No! He can teleport? How can you hide from someone that teleports?

Erl: I think he got the ability by default because he was created that way. Should I say he was lucky?

Me: Did you write this manhwa, Erl? You seem to know all the answers!!!!!

W

Mari: lol. Love him. How is he staying sane with all this craziness around him?

Erl: I know right? If I was him I would probably have lost my marbles or something like that.

Me: LOL – lost your marbles. LOL. I would probably be like that rabbit from Pets. Accidentally poops a few… LOL. Because I’m freaking scared!!!!

W

Me: There is something wrong with this scene! Do you see what I see? *laughs*

Mari: Too many blondes? Don’t you know that all Australian are blonde? (actually, if there are any Australian readers, please know that I’m being sarcastic)

Erl: I’m looking for a redhead, I demand a redhead! LOL

Me: *rolls eyes* the headrest is shorter than usual!!!!! Oy…

W

Me: Holy flipping fudge!!!!!

Erl: Oh to materialize out of thin air. I feel like I’m watching X-Men only this is the creepy version.

Mari: He can f)&)(&!  teleport! No one is safe! No O N E!

W

Erl: She’s fading, oh no! She’s fading! I’m trying so hard to care and failing miserably.

Mari: ugh* her again. Also dammit those words must have hurt Oh YeonJoo so much.

Me: Just go jo already!

W

Mari: I’m obviously not romantic, I don’t get why this is sweet? Stop touching my feet!

Erl: Same here, I don’t see how this could be romantic. Or am I looking at this from an entirely different angle?

Me: You two are weirdos! Please tie my shoe lace, Kang Chul!

W

Erl: What do you mean this is all a dream? NOOOOO!!! What are you doing Kang Chul? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??!!

Me: Is he giving up hope???? Don’t be a loser, Kang Chul! Fight fight fight!

FotorCreated

Me: Goodbye beautiful. I will miss you!

Mari: omg, no! No! No! This is so unfair. Sure, she was selfish in his point of view to bring him back. Yet asking her to do this is worse! He won’t have any memories of her, but she has to go on with her life knowing she was happy with him.

Erl: I call foul! I can’t! *runs in a corner trying not to sob*

W

Me: Uh oh… She’s back! Is this means she will be mean again?

Erl: Ah, she’s solid again. Am I twisted if I say I liked the fading form instead?

Mari: Does anyone care to explain to me why all girls in Kdramas wear their coats like this? I might start doing this in real life!

Me: I do this all the time!!! *flips hair* It’s sexy that way!

W

Erl: She still has the ring and the memory connected with the ring. I’m trying hard not to cry.

Mari: My heart is breaking for her already and we still haven’t see what will happen. I can still feel her pain. Imagine meeting & falling in love with the man of your dreams. Then to be separated. Knowing his life will go on without any memories of you! Ahh can I hug her?

Me: Poor girl. This is it. The end of her love life. She will be a spinster forever!

 

Wednesday Eu-Mak: Cooling Down…

2826894594_J4ySvaiW_16594bd94a6bb03d90eade138a8ecd51d718a1e5

I’m in need for a refreshing and upbeat song, especially when summer is slowly crawling out… This MV just answered my prayer! Literally, it did as it got released yesterday! I still out of word how to describe the song. It is just so versatile… And Crush’s voice is super sexy! This funky song is what you need if you’re in need of a pick-me-up. I say bring the summer back!

When you hear Skip, you really want to get up and dance. And really, you want to put your hands up and clap. This song is not Crush’s typical R&B song… It is so summery and lively. I’m still ga ga over this song. I should stop or else…. I will be writing nonsense *laughs*. Enjoy Skip, y’all! Also, enjoy your summer before it gets cool down *wink*.
