Well, I got curious and started watching Magic Cell Phone while I know I have millions of dramas on my watch plate. Don’t you just hate that? You know you have episodes to watch yet you start another drama! I hate myself too this morning but thankfully this drama is only 2 episodes long combined or 10 episodes in 10 minutes span for each episode.
Yeah, still hungry! Bel and I continued watching after we completed season 1. I mean… it only took us an hour to finish The Cravings. Yeap, it was such an easy watch! In season 2, our glutton gal Je Gal Jae Young is back with 10 episodes! The show is still sponsored by Lee Kum Kee! A trusted brand of mine *wink*.
They say when you are hungry you will do anything to satisfy your cravings. Yes, I was hungry (because of fasting). And yes, I was craving for something delicious. I recruited my Bel and watched The Cravings, a 6-episode webdrama produced by Naver TV Cast together yesterday. When a show this delicious, you do not watch it alone. You recruit and make them suffer with you! *laughs*
I don’t know what to say with this web drama. 3 episodes aired on Viki. I am still hoping there will be more to come. Fortuneteller’s Secret Recipe confuses me a lot. The ending did not make any sense. Please, don’t even think of watching it. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. I feel wronged!
Lately I started seeing influx of Korean movies, dramas and web dramas on Netflix. And then I noticed that not just Korean but plenty of shows from other countries too. I am happy that the network recognizes international shows and audiences. I browsed through my dashboard last week and saw Never Die. With only 5 episodes, I knew I could finish the show in under an hour.
The story was interesting and unique but the acting was very juvenile. I cringed at some of the scenes. Maybe because it is a web drama and they purposely make it extra cheesy? Or the directing was super bad? It’s a combination of many factors but to be honest, I didn’t care for any of it because I was dead focus on the story itself. I was curious. Dead curious.
Another Parting was on my plan to watch list. I got curious and asked Max sunbae on Twitter. He said, “I’m hopelessly biased of course because it is Wang Ji Won’s first lead, but bearing that in mind, I thought it was quite good.” That’s a good enough reason for me to start watching it. Besides, since this web Korean drama is only 5 episodes long, with each episode about 10 minutes , I thought it was good of my time to catch up on it before going to bed.
This drama is weird but quite good. An alien inhabited a dying person’s body and was asked to figure out what makes a human cry. This alien took Young Mo’s body and searched for a human. He met Ha Na who was about to jump off the bridge. She had a tough life and so Young Mo approached and asked her reason for crying. And then we were transported to a different scene where the caused of Ha Na’s tears was due to her recording manager. Young Mo was ready to kill him but it didn’t end up that way. Both Young Mo and Ha Na decided to escape instead. For what or why? I don’t know!
After that, it was a bit mystery to me. I wasn’t sure what happened. It seems that once Young Mo disappeared, Ha Na had a deja vu. She saw herself… like another person resembling her ready to jump off the bridge. I guess she was able to convince herself to not jump. Life goes on and then we saw her performing in a club. One of her viewers is a guy that looks exactly like Young Mo. She walks toward him and kisses him immediately. Well, what kind of guy who doesn’t like to be kissed by a pretty woman like Ha Na, right?
I was completely bummed out when Another Parting ended. I know web dramas are always abstract. But, just so you know, if they develop this story well, we could get another time travel or extra-terrestrial drama! I’m just saying… *wink*
This is the quickest, shortest web drama in my watching history. To be honest, I don’t even get it. The couple continuously talking about stars and extraterrestrial intelligence. And I went okay, how are they related other than she continuously wanting to get a kiss from him? Then I got it, this web drama is sponsored by Canon. At the end of every episode, well sometimes they aired it throughout the episode, you will see EOS 500D. After I completed the series it hit me… No wonder I see the main characters holding a huge camera.
The drama is cute and mindless. Would I recommend this drama that is originally based on webtoon? If you have 38 minutes to spare, you can finish all 16 episodes in one sitting. I just did that. Interested in watching it? Click here. That’s all.
