Yes, I am finally caught on to Reply 1988 fever. To be honest, I had no intention of watching the show. I did not feel the vibe with Hyeri as the main lead even though I have never seen her in anything before. But what made me change my mind? Bogummy! Park Bo Gum! My love. My harem. My king! Ever since I saw him in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, I just couldn’t get my eyes off of him. Since then I vow to watch all his work. And Reply 1988 is my first drama since Moonlight ended.

 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.

Taking A Dare! -Asian drama Style Day 16 to 20!

30 day challenge

Day 16: Drama that ruined your fondness for an actor/actress you previously liked.

BeFunky Collage

Me: Two dramas. Healer with Ji Chang Wook and Descendants of the Sun with Song Joong Ki. They didn’t do anything wrong, to be honest. BUT too many of them on my screen, social media (Instagram especially) really turn me off. Right now, I tend to avoid Joong Ki since his stock is still hot. But once the crowd slow down their fondness on him, I believe I’ll be back to appreciate him more. Just like when Chang Wook slows down on his appearance on tv, magazines, etc.

Mari: I’ll continue to drool for that man because he is Sex on legs but I’m not very excited about anything with Hyun Bin since Hyde, Jekyll, Me. I dropped it after 3 episodes and this was a first for me! I usually stick around if I like an actor ( Yes, Warm & Cozy, I did finish you!)

Erl: Descendants of the Sun – Song Joong-ki. It’s unbearably overwhelming seeing him almost every-freaking-where! One of the reasons that I can’t even finish the “stalking” post I promised to a sweet, sweet, friend. He’s no fun to stalk to anymore, the rarity is gone. And I adore this actor so much before the whole Descendants of the Sun craze. In my heart, I know I still adore him to pieces, but I can’t stand one more photo. I’m sorry Joong-ki, I still love you, but I just need to be free of you for now.

Day 17: Your favorite sidekick character in a drama.

Me: Haitai from Reply 1994! How can’t you not like him?

Mari: the whole cast of “Reply 1988” including the parents! Yes, they were technically not all sidekicks but I love them all so much I love their stories. This also goes for all the characters in “High Kick through the roof: Revenge of the short-legged” every single character in the show was love!

Erl: Yong Soo-Cheol (Yoon Hyun-min) – A Witch’s Romance. He’s soooo cute and I was really envious of his relationship with Yoon Dong-ha. They’re just completely goofballs together.

Day 18: Your favorite second female lead character in a drama.

BeFunky Collage

Me: I really can’t think of any… They are mostly evil!

Mari: Bai Xue Fen from “In a good Way” she was pretty, popular, and genuinely a nice person. She was madly in love with Shan Feng but quickly accepted it was not going to happen and moved on. She also never hated Jian En and the two girls became best friends .

Erl: Shin Soon-ae from Oh My Ghostess. I love how Kim Seul-Gi portrayed that character. I mean who wouldn’t love a perverted ghost? 

Day 19: Drama that started your obsession towards a particular actor/actress.

Me: Operation: Proposal. This drama should take responsible for my obsession with Yoo Seung Ho. I saw the drama many times and since then on, I’ve been a hypnotized by this boy. Glad he’s no longer under 21! Otherwise, this noona is in truuuhble!

Mari: “The Devil Beside You”  After watching this show I fell in love with both Mike He & Rainie Yang. Mostly with her, I went on a binge of all her dramas “Why Why Love” “TogetHer” “Sunny Girl” and my favorite of hers “Drunken to love you“. I also watched that movie where she plays a girl that does show online/lesbian. In other words, I love her in anything! Mike He, I love but I can only watch Devil & “Sunny Happiness” with him since his other dramas are not that great.

Erl: Baker King Tak-Gu, the drama that started my Yoon Shi Yoon obsession. I’ve watched it about 4 times already and still, it never fails to make me cry.. That puppy.. And after his stint as a Marine.. Oh la la, come to noona! Anybody watching Mirror of the Witch would know what I’m talking about.

Day 20: Your favorite drama from a non-romance genre.

too_many_kdramas_meme_kdramafighting

Me: Hmmm… Signal, My Beautiful Bride, Cruel City, Nirvana in Fire, The Disguiser, Siren, Warrior Baek Soo Dong. I know there are a lot more but these are my current favorites.

Mari: Signal, Cruel City, Pied Piper, Mawang,  The village: Achiara’s Secret

Erl: Nirvana in Fire. I can’t even put into words the love I have for this drama. I was completely satisfied with it. I loved everything about it.
