Currently Watching: The Untamed

qOXeDf

Listen y’all, I have to be on The Untamed wagon! Ok? I mean I cannot resist some hotties! Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo are so irresistible together. Forget that it is a Chinese drama, I just need to focus on them. I’m never a fan of the fantasy genre. I don’t particularly love it but I made an exception for this one. For the boys. It looks like my BL drama watch list is growing. I am quite impressed with myself. However, The Untamed is unlike Until We Meet Again. Rest assured, The Untamed is very tamed! Nothing naughty whatsoever which makes it easier for my son to watch it. The only untamed about it is the story. It is complicated but I managed to follow.

Currently Watching: Crash Landing on You

If you are a fan of You Who Came From the Stars, and The Legend of the Blue Sea, then you WILL love Crash Landing on You. It is written by the same writer, Park Ji Eun! I did not believe I am still into cheesy romance. The appealing of this drama is out of this world. Hyun Bin is so gentleman and handsome as North Korean Captain Ri Jung Hyuk. And then we have Son Ye Jin, my heroine and one of my favorite actresses as chaebol Yoon Se Ri. Rumor has it that Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin are an item. I can see their chemistry online but I have never seen them offline. If the rumor is true, I wish nothing but the best in their relationship. I secretly hope it is true.

Just Watched: The Ghost Bride

No, I did not read the book but I got curious when my favorite Instagrammer said the novel was to her liking. But after watching this, I don’t think I need to read the book. Then again, I might read it to support my birth country. Yes, the author is a Malaysian but I heard she resides in the US. I need to do my research better. Fortunately, The Ghost Bride got picked up by Netflix and they released it during Chinese New Year week. Good timing, I suppose. Shockingly though, I feel like it is missing the true Malaysian oomph. The casting is mainly Taiwanese though I recognize one or two Malaysian actors. This is where they spent their budget most. Everything else seems mediocre to me sadly.

Currently Watching: Argon

999FD73359AD0D4B2F

Yes, I am working on my To Watch List and Argon is one of them. I decided to pick it up this week as I knew my heart is finally ready to face Kim Joo Hyuk. His death was untimely and my heart sank by it. It is not even two years yet but I feel that I am finally ready to face his face. And Argon got so much great reputation from my tlist. It would be sad if I don’t pick this show up. I have always loved an investigative journalist theme drama. It sparks my intellectual interest since I am not that intellectual in the first place *laughs*. Plus, since it is only 8 episodes long and is available on Netflix, I don’t see why I should delay my watch. Right?

Just Dropped: Vagabond

qboZPf

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?
