First of all, I must credit kfangurl of The Fangirl Verdict for this watch. I started Girls’ Generation 1979 one night and completely forgotten all about it. Kfangurl’s blog post on the show prompted me to go back and finish it. I can’t believe I missed it completely. The first episode was so awesome. For some reason, it gave me fond memories growing up in the 80s even though the show was based in the year 1979. And I am quite surprised by the lack of attention this show got. I wonder why? I really loved this drama. Yes, it is super chick flick but it was pack with emotions. It reminded me of the Reply series which I adore so, so much!
Hello again!!! I finally got the girls (Nelly and Erl *waves*) back for another combined post. After “W” I was afraid we would never work together again.
My Love for end of year list is humongous, I read every single one I see. So I was very excited to put this one together.
The rules were simple: 1. Any show that aired in 2016 2. It can be SK, Taiwan, China and Japan 3. only get 2 picks per question and one honorable mention ( I suck at following my own rules). Lastly 4. Only shows that have finish airing. I have tons of love for mermaids, weightlifting fairies and goblins, but they can’t be in this list! Also keep in mind, these are our opinions, life would be boring all loved the same things. Lastly guys there may be spoilers so please beware. Let’s get it started! Continue reading
Finally! FINALLY! Kdrama God has answered my pray. KBS is finally making a comeback with a stellar daily drama! I miss KBS so much but their recent C-grade dramas really turn me off. Urgh. Congratulations, the network finally earns its reputation back with Descendants of the Sun (which y’all know I dropped it *shrugs*) and now, Heaven’s Promise and Five Children . Especially with daily dramas, nothing has grabbed my attention. I really feel good now. And this drama is not just another feel-good drama, it is a satisfying after a series of gross meal dramas! Ha, that’s my closed attempt to a metaphor…! Kinda! *giggle*
Jja jja jja… I told myself no more daily dramas from now on but really I think I should just put my feet into my mouth! I really can’t help it, especially when the drama is so calm and well written. And I’m slightly addicted (it’s an understatement, really!) to this show! In the beginning, it was hard for me to watch Apgujeong Midnight Sun (AMS). I can only watch it via OnDemandKorea and it is only view-able via computer and laptop. But for some reason, I finally able to watch it from my tablet. Ooooh the joy of watching via portable device! Oy, first world problem. Am I spoiled or what? *giggles* *crosses her arms* I don’t care, the technology has taught me a lot so I refuse to butt down!
Heh, let’s forget this bratty girl and focus on AMS. It is an MBC Network production drama at 149 episodes long (it got extended by 29 episodes). Yeah, AMS just wrapped up the series yesterday (Friday May 15) so I can’t wait to marathon the rest of the drama now. So what do I like about it? I don’t know how to say it specifically… The fact that there were no screaming and yelling (so far) and that every dilemma that crosses path was handle with manners and dignity, I actually wonder whether this drama is for real. I constantly waiting for them to explode. I have seen 70 episodes and I’ve yet to see those. Wait. I’ve cried. Yes, I cried due to death of one character. That’s about it. I thought daily dramas are full of revenge plots but where is it?
The story is simple. Yaya and her brother were left behind by their mom and one day, while her brother on job duty he accidentally found out that she is alive and happily living as a rich woman to a surgeon with her two step kids. On the day Yaya’s oppa met their mom, he forgot to turn off his phone after spoken with Yaya. That is how she found out that her mom is still alive and heard every conversations between him and her mom. Yaya’s oppa was distraught after the meeting and not realized that he crossed the road without looking. Yeap, that was the end of his life! I cried big time over this! It was totally unexpected! His death was a total shocked to Yaya as well! There and then she decided to take revenge for her brother’s death and for her sister and her newborn child! My take on her revenge? Smooooooooth!
The story is pretty simple. The angst is not what I quite imagine it to be. But lately, I have heard AMS has gone out of control. Oh boy *slaps head* am I ready for this? I heard it has gone totally lunatic that MBC is officially banning this writer, Im Seong-Han, from writing for them! Good lord, really??? I can’t imagine! It’s all good so far…! Now, as for my recommendation, would I really recommend it? Heh, I’m in love with the main character, Hwa Uhm so I’m going to say YES!!!! He’s so handsome I’m totally drawn to him! *laughs hysterically* Hey, at least I know where to anchor my eyes at! *giggles*
