Just Watched: Hot Gimmick


Hot Gimmick popped on my Netflix. I had no idea what it was about and hit play. I regretted it. This movie is poorly written. I don’t know where to begin… I sense missing plots as soon as I started. I was left confused. I don’t know where the writer wanted to take the viewers to. For the first time in many years, I used a lot of FF button. The acting wasn’t bad but wasn’t good, either.

Just Watched: The King: Eternal Monarch


Wow, I just finished watching The King: Eternal Monarch. I feel cheated, y’all! Cheated! I cannot even ask the writer to give back my 16 hours because I chose to continue finishing it.

Just Watched: Find Me in Your Memory


It took me forever to finish Find Me in Your Memory. I initially watched it on Viki but I do not have the plus access which got me behind on this drama.

Thankfully, the illegal site started popping those stupid X-rated ads that made me stopped immediately. I made an executive decision late last month to subscribe Kocowa. I felt so relieved again knowing that I am doing the right thing.

Currently Watching: Rental Nan mo Shinai Hito


My good friend wondered why am I attracted to unique dramas. Honestly, I am not sure. I just find it fascinating. Japanese dramas always have a way of turning something mediocre or unique to something interesting. Rental Nan mo Shinai Hito is the unique drama I am talking about. What I love about it is the simplicity of the show. Based on a true story and life of Morimoto Shouji, this drama explores his daily life as Mr. Rental with his clients.
