Just Dropped: Vagabond


It was terrible of me to even started Vagabond. I know I got succumbed to it from watching the trailer. Lee Seung Gi looks cool in it even though I am not a fan of his acting. But the main reason I started was for Suzy. I just love her despite her lukewarm acting. The two leads reunited after their successful drama, Gu Family Book, which I did not nor have interest in watching it. Again, it was because of Seung Gi. I am not sure why I hesitated. His last drama I enjoyed watching was King 2 Hearts. He is one of the male leads that never made my heart flutter… it was never love, sadly.

Just Watched: Love and Fortune


One night, I could not sleep at all so I decided to watch something to keep me asleep. I thought of catching up with Hanbun, Aoi but I am all caught up. I decided to browse on Netflix instead to get my Japanese drama fix. I started with Tuna Girl but 8 minutes into it, I got turned off by the main character’s overly bubbly character. I definitely was not in the mood for something cheery. And then I was led to Love and Fortune. The synopsis screamed pedophile! It is disgusting but I found myself clicking the Play button. Did I regret it?

Currently Watching: Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung


Somehow, I feel super relieved to watch another period drama. I don’t know why but I’m starting to get addicted to sageuk genre. Right before Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung, I was watching the Nokdu Flower. Though Rookie is less political than Nokdu, the fact that it is a period drama was enough to get me going. I know I will be adding more sageuk dramas once Rookie ends. In fact, I already have one in mind. Be on the lookout for my review, okay?

Just Watched: Ramen Teh aka Ramen Shop


Ramen Teh has been popping on my Netflix for a while. I put it on hold for quite some time but I finally succumb to it last week. I needed something light to watch and seeing the word “ramen,” I immediately thought of comfort food. Sure enough, the movie is about a relationship that can only be amended with comfort food. If you are a Singaporean or Malaysian, this movie is quite dear to our hearts. I know bak kut teh is a very famous dish among Chinese Hokkien. I never tried the original since I don’t eat pork. But, as it turns out, you can also have it without pork. As a vegetarian, bak kut teh is my go-to dish especially in wintertime. Say… is it winter yet?

Just Watched: Designated Survivor: 6o Days


Honestly, I never thought of falling for Designated Survivor: 60 Days this much. I never heard of the original one until I started this drama. I am considering now after being so engrossed with the Korean version. I don’t do political drama and when I do, it mostly sageuk kind. So it is refreshing to watch modern politics in a drama. I was on the fence starting it but got super addicted as soon as I started the first episode. Never would I thought I would love it so much. I just completed the last episode and A and I cried because of the ending. I am hoping that this show will get a second season. But will it?

Just Watched: My First First Love


I don’t know what to say about My First First Love… It was okay for me yet I felt it quite addictive. It is a light-hearted drama so you don’t really feel a burden. To me, this drama was cheesy and funny yet very entertaining. It is pretty much a slice of life drama from college students’ perspective without emphasizing much on the studies. It is all about that dating life, about survival, about freedom, about doing the right thing, about the future, about friendship, about truth, about family, about money, about dignity, about jobs, etc. The typical dilemma for young adults.

Just Watched: Persona


Rated mature, Persona is a series consisting of 4 different stories on Netflix. Each episode is around 20 minutes long. I was drawn to this series because of UI. I adore her as a singer and actress. I decided to give it a watch – I had no expectation and no clue what is it about. But now, I just feel like what did I just see? So my review is based on 4 episodes. The stories are not related but the only common is IU. She is in all of the episodes playing four different characters.
