Surprisingly, I am watching sageuk again. I believe Queen for Seven Days is my second one this year. The first one was with my Yoo Seung Ho in Ruler. And I also started Six Flying Dragons early this week with Mari. Trust me, I have more historical dramas to watch. Now that I am no longer allergic to sageuk, I will watch more and more. Be prepared *wink*.
I just finished my krack drama! I hate that I finished it! Now I am having major withdrawal! Seriously, I really did not want The Best Hit to be over! If you have been following my tweets, you will see how much I have tweeted this show. I just couldn’t contain myself. I tried to be discrete but I realized few of the tweets with photos speak a thousand words. I am terrible with spoilers. Because I love spoilers myself *laughs*
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.
I am bored lately. 90% of my dramas are currently airing dramas. To wait every week for new episodes can be frustrating. I decided to marathon Baek Hee Has Returned since it is only 4 episodes long. This short series is funny, cute and fun! The acting is quite stellar! I got totally engrossed in this show. Even my son is!
I just love Choi Kang Hee. She is just so adorable! From the way she talks and makes faces, I just find her utterly adorable! I have been trying my best to watch all her dramas though I couldn’t get into her Glamorous Temptation and quit 7th Grade Civil Servant. And even though I said I have been trying, I still haven’t seen her old dramas. Anyway, I love her in Heart to Heart and I thought Queen of Mystery will give me the same feels as well. I have been playing catch up with this drama since Monday and I am finally watching episode 10. I really enjoy watching the OTP. Their chemistry is awesome. She calls him Detective Ha. He calls her ahjumma. So hilarious!
I can’t believe I boarded on Five Children train!!!! Seriously, I was not expecting this! In the beginning, the synopsis did not grasp me. It sounded too makjang for my taste. And then last month, I was browsing the tv channels in my hotel room and Five Children was on. Episode 11 to be exact. So I watched. And watched. And continue to watch until the end. It didn’t feel makjang at all. In fact, it felt very earthy and comedy-ish. I immediately got hooked on the show. Obviously, I did not want to pull a Grace so I decided to start it from the beginning. And as of last week, I saw the newly subbed aired episodes! Yeap, I managed to catch up!!! I was so determined to do so mainly because I wanted to start on another new drama and I will not start until I’m caught up with Five Children! *giggles* I feel like a champ now! *flexes her biceps*
So Five Children is a great family drama and it is currently my current crack family weekend drama! It is been very smooth and easy to watch up until last week. But I think something huge is about to happen. I mean, think about it, it’s not a family drama without crazy hair pulling, fist punching, and cussing! Also, I feel that after 28 episodes, this drama though is seriously wasted a lot of time on the second brother. His story is the most uninteresting one of the bunch. But hey, I know it is a family drama and all family drama loves incorporating every single character’s background story. I personally feel it could have been done in a more productive way. Nevertheless, I’m still enjoying Five Children the most for two reasons: the divorced couple and the golf couple! Who are they? Well, *rubs hands*, allow me to give you my version through their romance *wink*.
Sang Tae and Mi Jung: They are both single. Sang Tae is a widow with two kids. After his sick wife died, he moved in with his in-laws. Who does that? Shouldn’t he go with his family? Anyway, that’s what he did and his in-laws appreciated his consideration. I find him rather gentleman for what he did. Mi Jung, on the other hand, is a divorcee. Her husband cheated on her with her best friend! That basturd! She has been divorced for three years but her children, 3 kids, were left clueless. They assumed that their dad is in the US for work. Even Mi Jung’s grandmother was clueless!
The two met at their workplace. Mi Jung got hired as an Assistant Manager to Team Leader Lee Sang Tae. In the beginning, Mi Jung felt that Sang Tae has given a romance vibe but the misunderstanding forces them to distance themselves. Eventually, they sorted out their feelings for each other and started dating. The only problem is Sang Tae’s in-laws, especially his mother in law, are not happy that he’s seeing Mi Jung. In my opinion, his mother in law has no right in stopping him and his dating life. Throwing tantrum will not change the back the fact that her daughter is dead! BUT, there is another hurdle Sang Tae has yet to see. Though his dad will understand, his mom will also deny Mi Jung, too. So what would Sang Tae do? Should he please his family or himself?
Sang Min and Yun Tae: These two singles met in an unexpected way. Yun Tae, Sang Tae’s youngest sibling, is heartbroken. Jin Joo, Sang Tae’s sister in law and Yun Tae’s friend, likes Tae Min. Tae Min and Yun Tae have been friends for years but Yun Tae never confessed her love for him! Her shyness gave Tae Min away to Jin Joo. Devastated, she walked out of the club drunk and got into what she thought to be a taxi. It turns out, she got into Sang Min’s car. Sang Min is a professional yet diva-ish golfer. He is a bit weird to a sense that can be very ignorant and naive at the same time. It is hard to describe his personality. He definitely an edgy diva!
Anyway, the two met when she got into his car drunk. He kicked her out of the car. Yun Tae accidentally took his phone. Diva Sang Min was concerned over his phone and made Yun Tae shut it off. However, before the phone exchange, Sang Min’s constant harassment made Yun Tae’s insecurity deeper. Something happened later that after the phone exchange, Sang Min continuously to harass her. She definitely aroused his curiosity. He was puzzled how Yun Tae, not once, attracted to his handsome look! *laughs* The man then went from completely psycho to madly in love with Yun Tae. He has found his way into her home and now, he’s working on getting into her heart! But devastated Yun Tae is still heartbroken… Can he make her forget her crush and go to him instead?
So what these four have in common? Sang Min is the model and spokesperson for Sang Tae’s company. Yun Tae is Sang Tae’s sister. And unknown to Yun Tae, Tae Min is Sang Min’s younger brother. Yeap, it’s a small world, isn’t it? Typical kdrama plots, chingu! There are other interesting side stories you should be aware, too. Some are funny, some are just… meh. But who cares… that’s what FF button is for! *giggle* Now, please get your azz and park them on your couch (where it should be!). Five Children is one hilarious and comical family drama. One must not miss this show. Every year, there is that one fabulous family drama and I can say Five Children is the one! Watch it! I’ll judge you if you aren’t watching it! *evil eyes*
I finally saw the anticipated KBS drama special, Page Turner. In the beginning, I thought the show has ended. But it turns out I still have another episode to go. Yay for me! So glad that I do not need to rush my watch just to finish it. I believe the third and final episode will air tonight. I’m not sure if I am able to catch up on it this week but either way, I will watch it when the time is available.
Page Turner is very interesting. I usually dislike high school drama but this one was written quite well. I found it very solid. Kim So Hyun is a solid actor and her presence really forced Ji Soo and Shin Jae Haa to step up in their roles as well. I love the three of them. The boys can be a bit immature but that’s how boys are, right? Besides, I do not want to be overcritical with them. They are still young and this is a high school drama. So why not give them a break and enjoy the story, right?
So here is the thing. Yoon Yoo Seol is a great pianist and a top student in her school. Being pianist, however, is not her dream. She was forced to be one because of her mom. It is sad but Yoo Seol is a great daughter and listens to her mom. One day, she got into an accident and lost her sight. She now has to adjust to her new lifestyle as a blind person. Seo Jin Mok was her mom’s student and he is the second best in the school. He and Yoo Seol were neck to neck on being the best of the best. Though enemies, Jin Mok felt guilty and a became concerned over her sudden fatal. He volunteers to be her guide but Jeong Cha Shik stepped in and offered his service instead. Cha Shik lost his chance to continue his career in sports due to his injury and now looking for a new opportunity for his future life and working with Yoo Seol is a great opportunity for him.
Cha Shik’s dad was a pianist and he thought going back to the root would be his next adventure. However, he is rusty and need guidance. Being Yoo Seol’s assistance would give him opportunity to pick up and make music his future career. But we all know Yoo Seol. She’s a bit bratty and stuck up even at her current condition. Do you think she would give in and be Cha Shik’s mentor? This 3-episode KBS2 drama special is a must watch. Though it portrays the life of high schoolers, it is also warm and hearty. I really am looking forward to tonight’s episode. Yes, I will park myself in front of tv and watch it raw *grins*.
