Taking A Dare! -Asian drama Style Day 26 to 31!

30 day challenge

Day 26: Drama character you’d actually want to be.

Me: Call me crazy but I wanted to be as cool as paksa’s son from Cruel City. I don’t mind the beat up as long as I get 9 lives and still looks good *giggle*. Another character as cool cucumber as paksa’s son is Kim Do Hyeong from My Beautiful Bride. Yes, I’m drawn to these calm, cool, badazz, and collective characters!

Mari: ahh this is hard!! I want to responsible with this choice…. But honestly, I have to go with Cheng You Qing from In Time with you. She had amazing fashion taste, a good job, a great family (sometimes) and she had the best man ever in Li Da Ren! He was her best friend & the one person that was never afraid to tell her the truth! We all need a Li Da Ren in our life 

Erl: Kim Hang-ah from The King 2 Hearts. She’s so badass but she’s also vulnerable and she has a cute puppy for a hubby.

Sada: Do I wanna be smart as Choi Seo Yeon, capable as  Miss Kim, fangirl as Sung Shi Won, unstoppable as Kim Hang Ah, devoted as Yuan Xiang Qin, lovable as  Chun Song Yi or just Makino Tsukushi? Hmmm…

Day 27: Your top three bromances in dramas.

Me: Dae Gil and Jun Choi in Chuno, Ki Tae and Yeo Reum in Marriage Not Dating, AND Dong Soo and Yeo Woon from Warrior Baek Dong Soo.

Mari: all the Reply series had excellent forms of guy friendships but 1988 had my favorite. Those kids adored each other so much. 

Erl: Yoon Yoon-jae and Kang Joon-hee in Reply 1997, Samcheonpo and Haitai in Reply 1994 and Yoon Dong-ha and Yong Soo-cheol in A Witch’s Romance.

Sada: Hana Yori Dango, Flower boy ramyun shop-Shut up flower boy band, Cruel City, School 2013, Bad guys…it’s easy to name boys.

Day 28: Your top three sisterhoods in dramas.

Me: Shi Won and Yoo Jung from Reply 1997, Bong Seon and Sun Ae from Oh My Ghost, AND Soo Kyung and Jin Yi from Let’s Eat

Mari: The 3 girls in The woman that still wants to Marry. I don’t remember them ever fighting over anything major. The first I need romance, also had 3 good friends. It’s sad that I can’t think of more. Female friendships are so rare in dramaland 

Erl: Park Gae-in and Lee Young-sun from Personal Taste, Na Bong-sun and Shin Soon-ae from Oh My Ghost, Sung Shi-won and Mo Yoo-jung from Reply 1997.

Sada: Protect the boss, Wild romance, Marriage plot…hmmmm…why is this difficult.

Day 29: Drama that everyone else absolutely loved and you absolutely did not.

Me: Descendants of the Sun. Seriously? *shrugs* Don’t shoot me, I’m just following my heart.

Mari: I don’t know how well loved it was while it aired but I constantly hear people praise it and I hate it with such a passion I want to throw stuff at it What Happened in Bali, then Full House

Erl: My Love From Another Star and no, I seriously do not want to explain myself.

Sada: I can’t say I hate it..but I never saw City Hunter. I was loved, I was indifferent towards, Blade Man as well. The list goes on…

Day 30: Caption a screencap from a drama you’re currently watching.

Me: Good Morning Call. A 2016 Japanese drama I’m currently watching from Netflix. *wink*VLQ2zWN3_77a84e_f

Mari: I’m currently watching Back to 1989 and this is the most adorable girl in the planet Zhen Zhen

Erl: Doctors. So far, still interesting in my opinion. Although I suggest a new title – Irresistible Hye-Jung or Guy Magnet Hye-Jung. It’s apropos.

Currently Watching: Man from Another Star

You_Who_Came_From_the_Stars-p1So as y’all know, I couldn’t start watching new dramas released in December and January because of my work travel. It was painful. I wanted to cry and I was full of jealousy and rage at the same time. Having unable to start watching on the first week with all my friends, it really dampened my kdrama ego *steams coming out of ears* I want to be at par with everybody. When I got home two weeks ago, I couldn’t hold it any longer. My ego was killing me. I have two dramas in mind and I decided to start with Man from Another Star first. Like a vampire who finally got to drink blood to feel full and recharged, I am happy to say I AM FULL! *burps* Exsqueeze me *wink*

Man from Another Star unites two of my favorite star. I saw them together in The Thieves and I liked what I saw. They were very comfortable together no wonder they were cast together again for this drama. Two thumbs up from me! Plus, I love them both. And together, they produced one of a kind couple chemistry I haven’t seen in awhile. The squee between the two totally caught me off guard. I never expected that the female lead will be the one playing the dorky part and the male lead playing hard to get. Maybe I’ve seen too many dramas in the past I dunno… 2/3 of my life but i can’t recall any OTPs behaving this way. Please jolt my mind if you’ve seen similar OTPs as the one in here… Uhm, jjakkamman. I think I’m losing my mind *pulls hair* Wasn’t Master’s Sun OTP as quirky and funny as this one too? *shudders* molla molla I’m going nuts.

Amuden, Man from Another Star is definitely my current crack drama. The minute I landed back, all I could think was to start this drama. Imagine that I’m all caught up by now… Yes, I sacrificed my sleep for Kim Soo Hyun baby *giggles* The story is about an (handsome) alien who was left behind by his other alien friends 400 years ago and now his time to return back to where he was from is nearing. The alien, Do Min Joon is the perfect looking alien I’ve seen in a bunch. He doesn’t have a cone head! Daenghida! *wipes sweat* Min Joon has special abilities to stop the time, to travel in lightning speed, to hear conversation near and far, and to see things clearly than others. One day, he fell in love with a hallyu star, who resembles the girl he sort of had a feeling with 400 years back. The only different? Of course, the hallyu star, Chun Song Yi, comes with a big attitude. But because his time on earth is almost expire, Min Joon is conflicted and debated whether to pursue his love for Song Yi or to treat her coldly because he knew there is no point of investing and tormenting himself on her.

So my friends and I are speculating how the ending would be… My take? He will go back to where he came from, come back to earth as a mortal person and marry Song Yi. Well, my very own fairy tale ending… I approve! *laughs* Anyway, two new episodes out this week and I’m dying to catch up with. I’m sure you are too if you are as current as I am. If you are not watching it…. I just don’t get you *shakes head* Why not? Watch it! It’s the bomb, yo!
