I finally able to start this glorious drama everyone has been raving about. I was either getting ready or already started my traveling when it first began airing. I was full of envy and jealousy that my Twitter friends could watch it and I couldn’t. But now the show has ended and they all are in withdrawal stage while me, enjoying every minute of it. In fact, I even spamming and tweeting madness whenever I get a chance. Some friend I am, huh? *laughs*

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.

Currently Watching: Strong Woman Do Bong Soon (Reaction Ep 1 – 8)

Y4a5Qvm4_012325_f

If you are on Strong Woman Do Bong Soon fever like usI am sure you look forward to Fridays. So far, 10 episodes have aired and we have eyes only for the OTP. The ever so lovingly and petite package Park Bo Young and the how-did-he-suddenly-so-attractive Park Hyung Sik! If we could bottle these two together, we would! They are simply attractive together. Sorry Ji Soo, looks like you are completely forgettable in this drama (Mari: I still love JiSoo, but the OTP is LOVE) . I hope he gets justice on his next project because really, he just can’t be saved anymore *pouts*. For this post, I have decided to do it differently than usual. Mari and I will comment on selected scenes from each episode (up to episode 8). WARNING: OTP heavily focus. Why? Because we can! *wink*

Just Dropped: Hwarang 

%ec%a0%9c%eb%aa%a9_%ec%97%86%ec%9d%8c

KBS’s anticipated winter drama, Hwarang, started last year. I, along with the fangirls of the world, was really looking forward to this show. One of the reasons why this show got so many raves was the cast. They reminded me of Moon Lover, a group of handsome young (and hot) men in their mane of glory dressed in what appears to be Joseon-style pirate like. Also, the vibe that I got where modern music meets modern Joseon world certainly reminded me of The Knight’s Tale time even though the story lines are pretty much different.

Let me be frank. The reason I was drawn to Hwarang was because of Park Hyung Sik. Yup, he’s my one and only intention. I do like Park Seo Joon but he does nothing to my heart. Go Ara, no matter how pretty she is, is not my ideal babe. I don’t know; I just don’t feel her chemistry with the men. Furthermore, she annoyed me big time. I really despise her weak character. Now please, do not judge me because I only saw up to episode 10. She could be the weakest link in the beginning but who knows by now she is back stronger and more confident.

The story, too, weirded me out. When Park Seo Joon’s character, Moo Yung, pretended to be Ah Ro’s (Go Ara) brother when clearly he is not her long-lost, blood brother I sort of feeling uneasy. And then when the two developed some feelings yet suppress it because, ya know, they are “siblings” got me feeling really barfy. Ok, clearly Moo Yung knows they are not related. But Ah Ro though… she was attracted to him. Granted that she continuously reminded herself that her feeling is wrong, I still could not and would not accept it. *sigh* I am sure they have taken care of this misunderstanding. I am sure the two lovebirds feel relieved. But I wonder if Ah Ro felt cheated by her dad. It was her dad’s idea for Moo Yung to pretend to be her brother. They did it all to protect her. But really, she’s a big girl! I am sure she could take care of her own feeling…

Hyung Sik’s character as the snobbiest, arrogant, and blunt Maek Jong is really sad. He was forced to hide his identity as the next King. I don’t know why his mom refuses to acknowledge him. Is she power hunger? Why did he agree to her request? Maek Jong retaliated and joined Hwarang, an elite group of Knights. Maek Jong was not supposed to join but as he was so angry with his cuckoo’s mom, he entered the group as his way of revenge. Of course his mom was shocked! And she could not say anything out of fear leaking his, as well as hers, secret.

Now, the story itself is interesting. The drama, as I remember, is pretty funny. So why I dropped it? I don’t know… I just can’t past the cheesiness. For some reason, it feels as if I am watching Boys Over Flower. In addition, I have been so behind in my watch and decided to sacrifice Hwarang. I might watch the last two episodes just for my closure. But would I recommend it? Ya know, I can’t say I could. I had problems with Ah Ro so I most likely not recommend it. Sorry… (not sorry)

Just Dropped: Jealousy Incarnate

y4bevq63_076eb1_f

I started this show because I was influenced by Grace and Mari. My undying love for Gummy was too strong and Grace’s fear that I will combust led me to start Jealousy Incarnate. I sort of agree with her. It was difficult to breathe. Gummy took over my life completely I couldn’t focus on anything. And if you notice, I have not been blogging almost a month because not only I was busy with work, I just couldn’t focus on my writing. I blame Park Bo Gum *laughs*.

Anyway, let’s not talk about Gummy. Or else this post will turn into another Gummy post *giggles*. And his post will come up soon. Jealousy Incarnate. An attempt to get me to fall for the second lead, Jeong Won, played by handsome looking Go Gyeong Po. Well, clearly my heart did not sink in with him. He is a puppy alright. But not for me. His character is too char for me. He has this romance aura but somehow I found Jeong Won a love beggar. As a humble chaebol, Jeong Won is the man of of your dream. He is generous with smile, generous with his money, generous with love. But his generosity is overshadowed by Hwa Shin, his nemesis played by Jo Jung Suk. Let me just say, I dislike Jo Jung Suk and his character in this drama is pretty chauvinistic! I just can’t!

As of last night, 19 episodes have aired and I have seen up to episode 18. I have decided to quit this drama because of its continuous tug and pull between the main characters, the second leads and the third leads. Yes, there are three triangle love in this show. Between Hwa Shin, Na Ri and Jeong Won, between Seong Sook, chefu and Ja Yeong, and between Red, Seong Sook and Ja Yeong. The show is romantically cute, funny and mature yet dark but I don’t think it is for me. I’m just tired of it.

But what good about this drama is the OST. Oh my God… I would love to own it! That’s all. For now, goodbye Jealousy Incarnate. Thanks for the laughs. If I ever continue to watch it again, I’ll just FF to chefu scenes. He’s hawttttttt! EOP (end of post) *giggles*
