Currently Watching: Mask

fullsizephoto595989

When I heard Joo Ji Hoon is in this drama, boy oh boy, the excitement in me is beyond words! I screamed like a school girl! I’m a fan of his acting. The last time I saw him was in Five Fingers and I was head over heel with him. Well, that’s one half of the story. The fact that he is incredibly talented and super duper handsome, can you blame me for being this giddy? You can’t! Because I know you are squee-ing as loud as I am too! The man is just… a walking sex symbol! There, I said that! Too much? Ehhh, who cares! It is my post and I’m entitled to say whatever I want! The canvas is white and I’m painting it with red lips kisses all over it! *giggles*. Okay *breathe*, let’s stop fangirling and focus on Mask, my current obsession drama *wink*NISI20150528_0010989593_web

Yes, I admit I was very excited to watch this drama. Joo Ji Hoon is a driving factor, of course! And sure, we can throw Yeon Jung Hoon and Hoya into it as well. Why not! A cast with full of sophisticated and handsome looking men? I’m in! Sadly, I’m not fond of both female leads. Soo Ae looks very depressing whereas Yoo In Young looks very bitchy! Well, we can just expect this drama will go as melo as we want it to be. Will it reprise the melo-ness of Secret? *giggles* I was shut down completely on the first episode already. Mask is more comedy than melo, to be honest! Waeeeeeeeeee? *stomps her feet* This girl want melo!

So Mask is a story of doppelganger. Seo Eun Ha is a daughter from a wealthy family. Her family arranged her marriage to Choi Min Woo, a chaebol heir of a large conglomerate company. Min Woo has OCD and mistrust issue and he was not happy to be married of to Eun Ha. Eun Ha agreed to this marriage only because but she warned Min Woo that he will not have her heart as she has given it away to another man. That another man is none other that Min Woo’s brother in law, Min Seok Hoon. Seok Hoon is married to Min Woo’s eonnie, Choi Mi Yeon. So noticed that I’m telling a story from Eun Ha’s perspective whereas in the drama, it is from Eun Ha’s doppleganger side Byun Ji Sook. Ji Sook assumed Eun Ha’s identity when Ji Sook was given a life or death choice by Seok Hoon. Before Eun Ha’s death, she and Seok Hoon were planning on framing Min Woo but it didn’t turn out to how it should be. Now, Seok Hoon is making Ji Sook to step in as Eun Ha and planning his seeds into Ji Sook. The problem is Ji Sook is forever feeling guilty. And of course, in my feeling, she is the most stupidest character in this drama. *shakes head*

From Ji Sook’s perspective, she dreams of becoming rich. Her family is poor and in debt. She tries her hardest to pay out the debt by partying with who’s who of the block but constantly getting humiliated. This opportunity offerd by Seok Hoon is a bitter sweet for her. She gets to be play a rich girl but had to die in her family’s eyes. But Ji Sook constantly feeling guilty and trying her hardest to reach out to her family even though she knows her family had accepted her death. This stupidity going on and on from one episode to another. Frankly, I’m getting tired by her stupidity and carelessness. She was caught by her younger brother (that she’s alive and well) and now, even the gangster is on her tail. Yeah, I told ya she is stupid. Min Woo, who was once suspicious and wary of Eun Ha is now curious that she’s different before the marriage.

The question is because Ji Sook is so stupid and trying hard to get away under Seok Hoon’s influence, would she able to get herself away and figure out the reasons what Seok Hoon with Choi Min Woo’s household? 10 episodes have aired and we have another 10 episodes to go. As much as the madness and chaotic this drama can be, I will still watch it. I am frustrated that I spent the past 5 episodes watching Ji Sook continuously making poor and stupid decision. By the end of episode 10, I thought I saw some light. I really hope Ji Sook is really accepting her role as Eun Ha and turns the table around with Seok Hoon. I also hope that she could convince Min Woo to quit taking his medication, one of the reasons that constantly made him unreliable and fragile as Director in his own company. Do you think Ji Sook can now put on the mask and save herself, Min Woo and the company? What do you think Seok Hoon wants so badly from the Choi’s household? Do you have any theory you want to share with me? My theory is that Choi’s dad must have ruined his family and now taking revenge alone since the real Eun Ha is dead. His goal is now to continuously poison Min Woo and once the board kicks him out, Seok Hoon will step in and eventually take it all as his! *laughs* Yes, I have my own evil plots too! Hehehe… If you haven’t seen the drama, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Watch for the craziness, people!

Currently Watching: My Lovable Girl

Aaaaaah, Rain oppa. I have never seen his other dramas but Full House. I hated him so much for torturing Han Ji Eun but at the same time the feels I got from watching his naughty yet cold ‘tude really, really worked on me. So remembering my experience of watching Full House, I was hoping to get that same cutesy effect from My Lovable Girl. Well *knocks her head with her hand*, what was I thinking? These are two different dramas. Two different genres. Full House was a romantic comedy, and My Lovable Girl is just romance drama. But a girl can dream, right? *shrugs*

In the beginning, My Lovable Girl was not on my watch radar. One of my kakao gf saw the first episode and wasn’t impressed. I blindly took her advice and decided not to watch. And then Michele started texting to me on it. And I suddenly realized, Infinite L is in it! L!!!! MyungSoo!!!!! My other pretty boy is in it! Oh mo, I told myself I’ll regret for the rest of my kdrama life if I don’t start watching it. Plus, the way Michele was describing it, I found it very interesting and intriguing! And I’m glad I listened to her. So, so glad. I marathoned the first 6 episodes in a day! Yes, I was highly addicted with the drama by the end of episode 6 and immediately had withdrawal because the waiting for the next episode began thereafter.

The story line is pretty simple and extremely predictable. You and I can read it very well. So why bother watching it? We watch it because of the presentation with different actors,  of course! Same plot line presented in different circumstances. How can I possibly give it a pass? Besides, it’s Rain and L and it involves music. Somewhat but I love music. My Lovable Girl is a life story of Hyun Wook, a composer and producer of an entertainment company. He came back from his looooong hiatus, after losing his songwriter girlfriend to an accident that potentially partially his fault. He later met Se Na. At the time, Se Na was just a hotel employee assigned to care for Hyun Wook’s adorable golden retriever. He then hired her as his pet sitter. He found out one day that Se Na wanted to be a songwriter and eventually discovered that she is his late girlfriend’s sister. He took her under his entertainment business wing. Unfortunately, her presence was very unwelcoming by his team and it was especially taken it hard by Jae Yeong, the company’s own songwriter and producer. He created a havoc and tore the company’s best kpop group apart and leaving Shi Woo, one of Infinite Power member, behind.

Shi Woo was the prettiest of the Infinite Power member but lacking vocal talent. His team pushed him away and blaming his popularity is nothing but his own appearance. He was very arrogant at the very beginning and used his celebrity title to win all, but in the end he came to realize that he got nothing to brag about. SeNa really pushed his boundaries in a way and made him understand his own ability and was humble by it. In the beginning, SeNa composed a non-typical kpop song for his solo debut but he rejected it thinking a fast, upbeat tempo would get the crowd to love him back. He blew it and ended up injured while performing on the stage and losing respect from his fans more and more. SeNa helped him made a come back and the song was extremely humble and down-to-earth, written to acknowledge his mom.

In the process of all this, Shi Woo slowly falling for SeNa while she’s falling for the handsome dog man aka Hyun Wook. By the end of episode 12, SeNa found out Hyun Wook’s real identity and by the end of episode 13, Shi Woo took heartbroken SeNa and made his. Of course he didn’t say it but action speaks louder than word. This is where Hyun Wook made the biggest mistake of his life by not being honest to SeNa. The girl is hurt. Shi Woo is already making her his. So what do we expect in the next 3 episodes? I, for once, really really hope that the second lead won the first lead’s heart! I want Shi Woo to win the final prize! Beside, it is just wrong to date your sister’s boyfriend! Don’t you agree? Yeah, that’s my prediction but who knows… KDrama is pretty much awesome at breaking their watchers’ hearts. SeNa could ends up forgiving Hyun Wook and go back to him (or not!). *shudders* I’m praying hard that for once, ONCE, that the second lead win! Who is on Team ShiWoo, please raise your hands! Besides, the chemistry between Rain and Krystal is pretty awful as a couple. Krystal and Myung Soo are way better as a couple and are more realistic considering their age and all. Amuden, this 16 episodes drama is nice and lovely even though it sometimes leaves you frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, the frustrating is okay and I get it why Hyun Wook didn’t want to be frank with SeNa. It is what it is too in real life. If you are into a mush mush drama, My Lovable Girl is for you. I like it since it is a light drama, it cools me off from my angsty dailies.
