Currently Watching: Age of Youth

Y4BEOl63_27b708_fAge of Youth is gold! I think everyone should watch it. No exception, this show is a MUST watch. Age of Youth is a drama gem I can relate to. I missed living with girls. So many secrets and heartaches one must wonder why do we girls still enjoy being with other girls! I do wonder that myself. A house full of estrogens yet we love it so much! We are catty and feisty, we are awkwardly social, we are ignorant and naive, we are also stubborn and stuck up, we are arrogant and proud, we are aggressive and gentle, we are introvert and extrovert, we are emotional and unpredictable, we are just a human being. But what makes Age Of Youth fun is the relationship between the girls. This show covers all range of behaviors that I sort of missed it when I used to live with a bunch of girls in my tiny apartment back in college. Ahh…. those were the days.

I just completed episode 10 and now feeling tiny withdrawals after I found out it is ending next week! What? Why? *stomps feet* I know all good things must come to an end but… but… I’m not ready to part with my girls! This is too much to handle! I still not ready to say goodbye to Five Children (which ends today)! Why is it only 12 episodes long, jTBC??? This is totally unfair! Do you know how difficult it is to get all your shows subbed? Ooooh, even the sky is pouring its tears for me! *sobbing*

The house where the girls are living in is called Belle Epoque. There are five of them. Each of them has their own baggage. Eun Jae is the youngest of the bunch. She moved into the apartment with a secret on her shoulder. I sort of knew her secrets by now but really she needs to reveal it quickly now and to confirm whether my hunch is right! And then we have four sunbaes in the house. Sunbae Ye Eun is bubbly and cheery on the surface. But deep, deep down… She is insecure with her relationship with her boyfriend. She caught him cheating but had no idea who he cheated with. In the beginning, she suspected one of her roommates but realized there is another person. In the end, she broke up with him. But really, though, she still missing him terribly. Will she go back to her ex?

Sunbae Yi Na has not enrolled in college since after high school. She’s been going out with men, in general. She switches from one sugar daddy to another like changing clothes. In the beginning, I wonder why is she doing this to herself? She’s pretty and sexy. She could have asked the men to pay for her school. But rather, wasting money on branded clothes, bags and shoes are just too stupid! In between men, she met Jong Gyoo and they became drinking buddies. There is something about him that I got curious. He was not attracted to her at all. But once I get to know him, what I thought he was stalking Yi Na was actually an excuse! He wants to know the truth about his daughter’s death! Only Yi Na can soothe his achy heart.

Next, we have Sunbae Song Ji Won. Ji Won is my favorite character of the bunch. She overdoes things a little too much. But her lovely spirit is to die for! If I can get a sunbae like her, I would. She can be overwhelming a bit, just so you know. She’s dying to be in a relationship but because of her nature, and her Bohemian style, none of the men she met the first time would go further other than being friends. Once a country bumpkin, Ji Won really just want to be known as the cheery person. She must be hiding something… *rubs chins*. One day she claimed that she can see a ghost. But is she? The ending of episode 10 says otherwise. Did she lie about the ghost just to get attention?

Last but not least is Sunbae Yoon. My heart aches for her. In the beginning, she appeared snobbish to uri maknae. But it was not her intention at all. She came out a bit too strong but Eun Jae finally understood her after seeing numerous rolled up notes in the trash bin. There are too many burdens on Sunbae Yoo, to be honest. Her mom still holding on to her younger bro’s life even though he’s been in vegetative state for years. Her bad luck continues when not only she have two jobs to support her education and everyday needs, she also got treated badly by one of her bosses. Life is tough for this girl. I cried for her… *tear up*

Age of Youth is a great life drama. I’m just lost for words to describe how great this drama is. You should really watch this show. I will really judge you if you aren’t *raises a brow*.

Just Watched: Choco Bank

Choco-Bank-Exo-KaiWhen life is busy, you squeeze in some web drama in between. And exactly what I did when I was on work travel. Choco Bank was my main squeeze. It was a quick 6-episode, stress and tension released drama that you must watch when you have less than an hour and half time to spare. The story is simple and cute. In the beginning, I was worried that there will be a triangle love but it didn’t turn out to be. Phew… I worried for nothing. It started with Ha Cho Co (yeap, that’s her name), opening her chocolate bakery business. She’s an old school baker business woman who knows nothing of the new financial technology world. Basically she needs help. A lot of help since she is soooooooo clumsy! And then we get a jobless yet perfect and handsome looking Kim Eun Haeng, who’s been dreaming of being a banker but never landed one. The two crossed path one day and made a pack. She will offers a job but in return he will bring money in through giving financial counseling to her clients (as well as managing her financial).

For all I know, Kai in his first acting gig isn’t bad at all. I think this boy has major potential. He can’t be a lead yet since he has a lot to learn but he did really good here. Park Eun Bin as clumsy Choco seems pretty weak in acting next to Kai, to be honest. Maybe because PD-nim wanted to highlight Kai. *shrugs* Anyway, as a web drama, Choco Bank was short and sweet and I’m glad it stays that way. I wouldn’t want to see it as a drama series… I don’t find love in financial love plot drama *grin*.
