Currently Watching: Hotel del Luna

poster-hotel-del-luna

I was not keen on starting Hotel del Luna at first. Maybe because at the time, I was still recovering from my illness. And when I started watching the first episode, I did not get a good vibe. Not only it is because of Hong sisters’ drama, I feared that the drama reminded me of Goblin even though it was not written by them. Mimi from The Talking Cupboard pointed out to me of Master’s Sun instead and I immediately cannot deny the similarity. The glamorous set. The richness. The beautiful cast. The luxurious brands. Yup, I can’t deny this drama won my heart now. Either way, I feel that it is a marriage of two dramas which to be honest resulted in a very interesting and engaging fantasy drama.

Currently Watching: Search: WWW

If you are not watching Search WWW, you are missing out on the coolest and chicest drama of 2019. The drama poster got me riled up. Look how cool the ladies are. But the title puzzled me, initially. I wasn’t sure what to expect since I don’t read the synopsis. I remember when I started watching, I was blown away by the open credit of this drama. It is a bit too cool to be true. “I wonder, you search. Me wonder, what you search.” Hmmm what was that mean, right? After watching 2 episodes, I finally understood. It’s a war between two search engines and the people that run it.

Just Dropped: Different Dreams

40Rqrf

Yeah, Different Dreams and I have different dreams. I don’t see it eye to eye with this show anymore. I try my best to give it another chance but I just couldn’t. I’m not sure what it is that makes me lose hope. I get bored most of the time. Every time I see an opportunity for a story to reach climax, it did no go the way I wanted it to be. I get deflated too many times. Even though the story is based on true event and with some true real characters, the stupidity in some scenes got me frustrated. I feel that the show could have been better told. And better direct.

Currently Watching: My Absolute Boyfriend

I went back and forth before starting My Absolute Boyfriend. On one hand, this drama offers Yeo Jin Goo. Yes, I said “offer” because I have seen clips of pure fan service to fan girls like me! But, on the other hand, this is a Japanese remake. I’ve seen the original version and the idea stuck in my head. I guess what I want to say is I’m afraid of the show getting butchered. Also, rarely would I read comments on MDL but I did this time. Some says the ex-boyfriend character is extremely annoying and his over-and-over stalking mode turns people off.

Currently Watching: Angel’s Last Mission: Love

Well, do you want to know the truth? I started Angel’s Last Mission: Love because of L. I feel so shallow for saying that *laughs*. I really enjoyed him in Miss Hammurabi and I had a feeling that he would do well in Angel. I am not wrong! Well, I am not right, either. He still has a long way to go but I am content with what I got from him for now. His role as angel Kim Dan suits him, though. But pairing with Shin Hye Sun is a hit or miss. The problem is Hye Sun. She is not bad but not good either. But no matter how seasoned of an actress she is, she still could not perfect her facial expression. She is my broom #2 but at least she can act!

Currently Watching: The Nokdu Flower

I just had to add The Nokdu Flower to my watch list. The cast line is so stellar I cannot miss the opportunity of not picking up this epic sageuk drama. Why do I say epic? It is directed by Six Flying Dragons‘ director. I am a big fan of Yoon Shi Yoon but not a huge fan of Jo Jung Suk. But I am fully aware how talented Jung Suk is and I believe this is his first period drama – correct me if I am wrong coz I am too lazy to dig into his bio at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, though. Just because I am not a fan it does not mean I won’t watch it. I always go for the story regardless of the actors.

Currently Watching: The Secret Life of My Secretary

I am glad I have this drama to fall back because I knew I would be miserable if I have no romcom to watch after Her Private Life. I am so smitten by this drama. It is so darn cute! I am also happy that Kim Young Kwang is back on my screen. The last time I saw him was in The Guardians. He was great in that drama. His role was definitely different and refreshing but in The Secret Life of My Secretary, he is back doing what he is great for. A handsome chaebol. And to be paired with Jin Ki Joo, it is a match made in drama heaven. She is super cute! Her deep-dimple smile is so contagious! I wish I am as cute as her!
