Currently Watching: Love Affairs in the Afternoon

WmXwXf

It is 3 pm somewhere, right? If you have seen Hirugao, I am sure you know what I mean. The Koreans aka Channel A decided to do a remake of Hirugao with the same title: Love Affairs in the Afternoon. Yup, a forbidden love drama that can be so romantic, so innocent, so naive yet so nerve-racking. I feel so nervous as if I am in this affairs with them as well. So far, 12 episodes have aired and I have been nervous watching it ever since especially episode 6, 7 and 8. I had to take a breather because my heart was palpitating so hard for them.

Just Watched: Spring turns to Spring

Oxnqkf

I completed Spring turns to Spring last week but did not get a chance to blog it until today. I would like to blame on my real life but it is not true. Honestly, I have been very busy marathoning Game of Thrones. I just started season 7 and hope I complete it by next week. Back to Spring turns to Spring, I am surprised that there are not many people watching it. I wonder why… the premise is typical yet interesting. The drama is super hilarious. Of course, some part did not make any sense but it is nothing new in kdrama land, right?

Currently Watching: The Smile Has Left Your Eyes

I have been delaying The Smile Has Left Your Eyes for the longest time until I ran out of things to watch. Mind you, I don’t have a long list of dramas to watch lately. The Smile completed this week so I guess I better finish it now. I am trying to keep my list short and sweet and be very selective on the dramas I want to watch. I am glad I chose The Smile because it is crazy interesting and mysterious with a touch of crime and romance. I started two weeks ago and I am now sitting on episode 13. Seriously, I am dying to see the ending because this drama lost me at first but now put me on adrenaline.

Sigh, despite my busy schedule, I managed to start another new drama again! I want to kick my butt but that gotta hurt, right? *laughs* I can’t help it, though. Besides, it’s Seo Kang Joon. I can’t missed this cutie pie. On top of that, Lee Joon Hyuk is back! I feel like winning a lottery seeing him twice in three months! Also, Gong Seung Yeon is in this drama. Another talented cutie pie. I enjoyed her so much.

Currently Watching: Avengers Social Club

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.

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*

Just Watched: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

71g7dz71_02fec4_f

It just so happened that Scarlet Heart Ryeo was aired around the same time Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. Because it started airing two weeks later, my focus was mainly on the other drama. But to be honest, I usually don’t do this. Last time when Kill Me, Heal Me was aired, Jekyll, Hide and Me was airing too. I’m not a big fan when two similar genre or theme drama airing at the same time slot. Almost always one will get neglected. Fortunately for Scarlet Heart, I decided to pick it up because it has different story plots than Moonlight.

The show ended in early November. It ended with a bang! I was stunned. The ending was not as I imagined it to be. It feels incomplete. Someone told me to draw my own conclusion. I usually am good at that but for some reason, I was being stubborn and refuse to do so. I mean the show, despite the flaws which I really did not mind, ended abruptly as if it was edited by a newbie! The certain loopholes got me really frustrated and disappointed. The writer ran out of time! How could you run out of time? Certainly bad planning! If she wants me to watch her next work, she better work on planning and coordinating her writings well!

One thing to adapt from the original Scarlet Heart, but as a writer, she should have challenged herself and determined to outbid the original! Geez, this is just a lazy work. She wasted good talents’ time and effort! Prop to the PD for giving us beautiful cinematography; but his direction can be a bit choppy. His editors definitely should have done a better job in editing. Some scenes seemed choppy. Prop to the costume designer for giving us such beautiful costumes, though. I really adore them. I really love UI’s earrings. I wish I could keep them! Prop to the musical director for giving us a beautiful soundtrack! Till this day, I still listen to the OST.

Scarlet Heart: Ryeo suffered a lot! I blame the writer and some would blame her and the PD for bad editing. Either way, this show was once the most anticipated drama is now the most disappointing drama of the year. So glad none of the actors and actresses are newbies. Or else it’d be tougher for them to sell out on their next role. Sigh.. what a mess. Though I enjoy the pretty and the stories, I don’t enjoy what the writer did. I wouldn’t recommend this show if you have the eyes for every little flaw. If you are able to see through it, I don’t mind you watching it. It’s watchable but please keep your expectations closed to nothing.
