So glad that Akira to Akira is finally subbed. This currently airing drama is my current obsession. Well, Saito is an added bonus, of course! *laughs* But really, you have to believe me when I said I’m obsessed with this drama. Why? It reminds me of Midas, a Korean drama by Jang Hyuk. Though the base of the dramas is similar, the stories are completely different. Akira to Akira is a hearty drama that focuses on friendship, relationship, inheritance, and life. And most of all, the background of this drama is circa financial sector in the 80s.
I finally able to start this glorious drama everyone has been raving about. I was either getting ready or already started my traveling when it first began airing. I was full of envy and jealousy that my Twitter friends could watch it and I couldn’t. But now the show has ended and they all are in withdrawal stage while me, enjoying every minute of it. In fact, I even spamming and tweeting madness whenever I get a chance. Some friend I am, huh? *laughs*
My son gave me his tablet last night and told me I could watch whatever I want on Netflix. With no agenda, I browsed the page and stumbled on Momo Salon. Not sure what it is about, I curiously check the drama page. 6 episodes long? 9 minutes for each episode? Well, it took me less than a minute to give the show a go. If I don’t like the first episode, I could just walk away. No strings attached.
I’m back!!! I’m here to share my love for a certain show that’s currently airing!
School 2017 airs Mondays & Tuesdays on KBS2 if you are in the states Viki is streaming it!
Why should you join me in this??? Why? Why??
Honestly because the show is good! 10 episodes have aired and I learned to love and care for the three main character as if they where mine.
so what’s the show about you wonder? Well it’s about a a group of students in their second year of high school ( I honestly don’t know how to label SK schools but I believe by their ages it’s the equivalent of a sophomore/junior in the US).
The main characters are: The class president Song DaeHwi he is the schools number #1 student and seems flawless. He seems perfect on the outside but having a poor background means he has to work a lot harder for his place. He is ambitious and willing to do anything to get into the top university.
All schools have a bad boy!! And here is ours Hyun TaeWoon. He checks all the needed boxes for bad boy in a kdrama. He is rich, good looking, seems to not give a care about anything. Yet you find out out that what you see is not what you get with him.
Out female lead is the adorable Ra EunHo. She’s cute, spunky, loyal to a fault. She won’t stand for any injustice and will never give up without a fight.
Then we have one of their teachers Shim KangMyung. He is their homeroom teacher and the one we often see interacting with the students. He hasn’t been jaded by the school system and still cares for the all the kids. He is often the only adult on the kids side. He is this adorable awkward man and has this cute friendship/romance going on with the person in charge of security in the school Han Sooji. They start off in opposite sides, but know both seem to just want to help the kids.
So please join me in watching these kids journey into adulthood. This is the age when you decide what’s important to you. What you want to be in life. What friendships are worth keeping and how to deal with a world that seems to only protect the affluent.
Also have a mention that this show has the cutest otp? They are adorable together!!!
A live action drama titled Gintama: Mitsuba no hen. I really am not familiar with the show or if there are other Gintama installments, but I can assure you that the 3 episodes just saw were really entertaining and surprisingly funny and intense. The story itself is quite predictable but the presentation was fun to watch. Thanks Bel for recommending this drama. Like her, I look forward to the movie! I really am curious now. The ending was abrupt!
Circle was the most complicated drama I have seen this year. The reason I said it was that this drama was difficult to predict. Really drove me insane! I really could not piece out the puzzle until the last three episodes. Yeah, I think my brain was not able to keep up especially that in each episode, the story was told in two different years. The first 30 minutes focused on the present world while the last 30 minutes on the year 2037. It felt like watching two different stories in a drama. Thankfully, Orion and Drama Panda were available to explain exactly the story was.
It was Erl that introduced me to The Bride of the Water God and I was quite taken by the story. I read it religiously before and I am still not done with it. While I was reading it, I even fantasized who should play Habaek. Obviously, I have forgotten all about it when the production cast Nam Joo Hyuk. I was unhappy with the news. I really liked him in Weightlifting Fairy but I simply could not see him as Habaek. Furthermore, I have no faith with Shin Se Kyung. I am currently watching Six Flying Dragons and she’s doing well in this show but I don’t know what happened… She is back to being meh. As I expected, her colleagues and the director play a huge role in her character delivery.
