Just Watched: Takane no Hana


I knew I wanted to watch Takane no Hana aka Born to be a Flower after I saw the trailer. It was dark, mysterious and interesting. Since Ishihara Satomi is the main lead, I knew immediately that it is a must watch drama. I loved all her dramas and I expect nothing less of of her performance in here. Unfortunately, I feel like this is not her best roll and she should have not taken it in a first place. I get it if she wants to challenge herself. This is a toughest roll for her. It is not easy to play two different characters – the dedicated Momo and the casual Momo.

Currently Watching: 1 Pound no Fukuin

I needed something silly to watch and Bel suggested 1 Pound no Fukuin when she stayed over at my house last weekend. The first episode got me laughing my butt out. I mean… a boxer fell in love with a nun? How silly is that?! And then to watch Kame three quarter naked all the time? Juicy juicy juicy! He is super skinny though but very fit! But the best part of this drama? Fun and entertaining! I have never laughed so hard watching a drama lately.

Just Watched: Tatta Hitotsu no Koi


So I needed a romance after I completed A Love So Beautiful. I stumbled on Tatta Hitotsu no Koi on plex and thought of giving it a try. It’s Kame and Ayase’s 2006 drama. It is so old but for some reason, old school romance drama is so lovely and sweet. Unlike today some dramas try to focus on physical romance. I mean it’s not a bad thing but unspoken romance gives you a deeper crush which will make your heart palpitating faster and faster. With only 10 episodes long, I completed in a day. Thanks, jet lag! I owe you again!

Currently Watching: Switched


So I caught up with Mr. Sunshine (review to come soon) and was shocked by the ending and immediately felt I need something light and fluffy to cheer myself up. I started Switched with a mind that it would be fluffy and cute. Well, God dang it was I wrong! This drama, only 6 episodes long, but oh man… it is packed with twisted plots! Seriously, I did not expect a high school drama to be this complicated! Currently on the last episode, I am hopeful for some happy ending. Some!

Currently Watching: Black Revenge


I have been putting Black Revenge on hold since June. The series ended last year but someone finally subbed the show. Thank you subber for your work! I finally able to start it last week while I was in Istanbul. I was bored and needed something edgy and intense to keep me awake. In the beginning, I was not keen on watching it even though I was bored. But it turns around really quickly when I realized what’s going on. It is a revenge! It is my kind of story!

On Hold: Ima kara Anata wo Kyouhaku Shimasu


This is my first On Hold post for this blog. I can’t helped but to pen down Ima kara Anata wo Kyouhaku Shimasu. The reason for putting this drama on hold? No one is subbing it. This series is only 9 episodes long but I am not sure why the subber stop working on it. Many reasons, of course. So far, I have seen 5 subbed episodes. There are 4 episodes left to be subbed. I wish I could do it but I do not understand Japanese. This is sad because the story is quite interesting. Shameless me wants to ask my J girlfriend to sub the remaining episodes but I know she’s busy with work and life. Sigh.

Just Watched: Phone Call to the Bar 3


After Tremble All You Want, I was in the mood for a different kind of drama. Something crime. Something gross. Something thrilling. So I started Phone Call to the Bar 3. I initially worried if I would not understand since it is the third installment of this movie. As it turns out, it is completely independent and easy to follow. And the story is pretty interesting and funny! I never thought I would laugh so much watching it.
