Just Watched: If Cats Disappeared from the World & My Korean Teacher.

If Cats Disappeared from the World

166266_02

*coughs* to be honest, I did not watch this movie recently. I completely have forgotten to blog it due to my work travel. But for sure, I saw If Cats Disappeared from the World in one of my long flights. This movie was done well. Another slice of life drama directed and acted so perfectly. If you decide to watch it after reading this post, please get your tissue handy. This movie has a tragic ending. After months of suffering from headaches, Mr. Postman finally went to see a doctor. He was diagnosed with a brain cancer and has little time left. He was shocked by it and do not know what to do. A devil in a form of himself appeared before him. He told Mr. Postman that he could extend his life if only he gives up his precious belongings. The offer was tempting but giving up means losing certain memories with it. For example giving up on his cell phone. By doing so, all his memories with his ex-girlfriend will disappear as well. The story began interesting the minute he gave up his phone, his watch, and so forth. His decision affects everything. His relationships with his ex-girlfriend, his father, his mom, and his friend.

Yeah, I just have to be on Ji Chang Wook train. The man is gorgeous. The man is beautiful. His sheepish smile is contagious. He made me feel giddy. What else could I say? Let’s hope my Cher eonnie is not here to police me on her boy *laughs*. Also, his recent announcement that he will be enlisted made this watch even better! I will miss his smile, his voice, and his IG update. Aish…

Just Watched: Fight for My Way

It has been awhile since I saw a great Korean rom-com! Fight for My Way is one heart light hearted drama. The edgy style of acting powered with well-diverse characters made this drama feels very real and fresh. This 16 episodes drama maintains its quality consistently. Well, by quality I mean the pace is steady throughout the show. What I love the most are the characters. They are so relatable. It is like watching your friends’ stories on tv. I admit they are not perfect, but it is the beauty of it. They made Fight for My Way entertaining and enjoyable.

Just Dropped: Frankenstein no Koi

フランケンシュタインの恋2

Hmmm, what can I say about this drama? I am trying to find the right word but I just could not come up with any! I have only seen two Frankenstein no Koi episodes so far and all I could think is how weird it was. Don’t get me wrong, this drama hired solid actors. But the writing is weird and slow. And I cannot let go of the ridiculous magic mushroom idea. I just can’t. I did think that I should give it another try but unfortunately, I am dropping it for few reasons.

I have been slowing down on my Japanese watch recently. Part of me is retaliating because some of the dramas I started I still unable to finish it because of missing subs. I am pretty upset but I have much respect on the subbers. Some of them are still in schools so I understand life as a student is really tough. If only I could do it myself. Bel and I talked about it. We want to contribute but our busy schedules may slow this project down.

Just Watched: Boku, Unmei no Hito desu

I finally completed this drama last week. And boy I was glad. It was a fun drama but there were few yawning moments too. I was not too crazy about the story. For some reason, it annoyed me. I was trying to pinpoint exactly why it went downhill for me. The boys were great together. Their chemistry was expected. Awesome. I could watch them forever. But the female casts were not to my liking. Maybe I’m so used to seeing them in homicide-like drama, it feels weird watching them in rom-com. It almost feels that they don’t belong in this genre.

Currently Watching: Lookout

I am currently hooked on Lookout aka The Guardians. Seriously, this show is captivating and is worthy of your time. Each episode is like a rollercoaster. The suspense will keep you at the edge of your seat. To be honest, I keep thinking why aren’t many people watching this show. Is it because of the lack of romance? I don’t get it. There is much happiness in watching dramas and romance is one of them but romance can’t give you the satisfaction like a crime/thriller drama could give you. The kickass! One more thing! Lookout has action! And Lee Shi Young is giving us the action! Gold action!
