I was not expecting my flight to Sao Paulo to have amazing selections of Asian movies. I scrolled the list from A to Z over and over again. It was difficult to pick the perfect zzz movie because everything looks interesting. I finally decided on Because I Love You because the trailer was the funniest of the rest. Besides, Kim Yoo Jung is in it! I love this girl so much.
Well, this is a drama I unexpectedly enjoy from the beginning. I don’t know… sisterhood and friendship genre drama is so awesome and I’m always drawn to it. Like Girls’ Generation 1979, I binge marathon this drama up to episode 9. It was the greatest feeling ever to watch sisterhood of a different kind unite for a revenge. Now, even though I mentioned sisterhood, this drama made an exception – the group accepted a young man to be a part of their club. It makes it more interesting because now the revenge is mutual.
If you are not watching Black yet, why haven’t you already? Black got me curious through the synopsis but I got really fidgety a bit because the drama employed two undesired actors! Go Ara and Song Seung Hoon! I was screaming like hell! Why oh why oh why??? I really dislike Go Ara’s acting. I could not finish Hwarang and partly because of her. I finished Reply 1994 mainly because of other casts – I could not avoid her but was able to simply ignore her as much as I could. However, she is tolerable in Black. Tolerable is generous – her expression is still dead to me. Her eyes are as woody as I remembered. Oh well… Continue reading
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.
