Random thoughts and Showtime Reviews

Here is a random thought post and a small random navigation around the blog. 🙂

We have Apink’s Showtime, Exo’s Showtime and Infinite’s Showtime at our blog, written by my sister who likes variety shows. She especially likes these 3 kpop groups. I like Infinite too haha…, surprisingly the only kpop group that I like, maybe because I mostly only hear kdrama osts rather than kpop groups’ songs. I watched the first episode of Infinite’s Showtime with her and it is really good haha, the car driving session is so heartwarming!

I heard from my sister last time that she was quite sad that Exo is somehow separated now. She likes them as a whole. Many groups seem to be changing such as Beast too, another group she likes. I think she watched whichever showtimes there are already, just that she only wrote certain episodes for those 3. Since she manages to write a few episode reviews for each showtime, enjoy if you like these kpop groups!

You can find them under Showtime page bar too!

I even see her quickly finishing up all the Weekly Idol episodes, sometimes still complaining that there are not enough episodes or some being unable to watch. Recently, she showed me the X2 speed dance, random play dance and some high pitch voice competition in Weekly Idol which are funny. When I check the number of Weekly Idol episodes today, I am shocked to see that there are so many, almost similar to the number of running man episodes. :O

For Running Man, I think I only finished every of the first 100 episodes which are entertaining. I especially like those with a story in the background or those that include a mission that has to be carried out before the whole team is caught by the chasers. I also like the museums or historical sites that they visit while carrying out missions. For the first 100 episodes, what I can still remember and laugh at until now are the parts like Gary’s peaceful expressions in pictures no matter how chaotic the photo-taking process is, the rain in the first episode that cover their self-introduction especially Lee Gwang Soo’s- the unlucky one, and the Yoomes Bond episodes. For the rest after 100, when my sister watched every week I just slot in whenever I am free. Of course, I watched the episodes with my favourite actors in them haha… I got to know many different groups and people I would not have known if I didnt watch Running Man. After Running Man change its members, my sister did not watch it much anymore and I also did not get exposed to it anymore haha. Enjoyed the days Running Man episodes made me laughed and made me stay up late to “chase” them.

Taiwanese Drama Quick Review Love Cuisine

     

Didnt expect much from this drama as the lead actor didnt look good looking.. haha…erm… and the first episode just somehow left an impression of blandness and old, especially due to the colour effects. And also just felt a bit ridiculous with the mermaid chasing human scene in the first episode.

However, it becomes better and better as the lead actor’s character becomes distinct which makes him more and more good looking haha. Besides that, the conflicts within and between students stick out well in this drama.

Enjoyed how Han Jie has such good ability in his cooking throughout the drama and how he conducts his hell-like strict training for the students. Liked how Xiao Rou cares for her students, being able to deal with all kinds of students: catching Ma Chong Sheng whenever he tries to skip school to work, and being able to understand and advise the arrogant Wang Mai Zhi who comes from a rich family.

          

Full review coming out soon~

Hi!

Hopefully this adjustment to our blog works~

The changes are as such:

For now, Korean web drama page is an overview of all the dramas we, especially Joyous JY watched, and will not include the reviews. Reviews will be found in posts instead.

At the foot of the blog on home page, there will be a category column to help you all navigate to the posts you may be interested in.

For other dramas and shows, we are still adjusting and experimenting to see if we should focus on pages or posts.

 

My current status:

Singapore Drama Quick Review 真探

Just finished watching this sg drama. Finally come across a sg drama worth watching! Nowadays, the plots of sg dramas just dont captivate me. After this drama, I may dig out some old ones to watch.

Wanted to watch a crime drama but then I dont want those that are too solemn or serious, and just nice this drama is portrayed in a less dark manner and make murder cases less haunting for me haha. This may be a disadvantage for sg dramas if compared to crime dramas from other countries haha. For my case, I just had fun relaxingly seeing how cases are analysed.

Will let you know again when I finish the full review!

Hi again haha

I am back again. After much consideration, I have decided and told my sister that I will still be blogging even in this month. No matter what happens with Google, it should not affect whether I should blog or not.

After all, I started a blog with my sister to channel our favourite hobby- watching dramas into something productive, something that not only helps us with our writing skills, but also something that can help others, be shared with others. Even if there is just one person visiting our blog, I should still continue sharing. I wont be losing anything anyway.

So, before I become busy again, I will add on as many reviews as I can. Thanks again for the support for this blog! 🙂

The Miracle(2017) Korean Web Drama

The Miracle (2017)
Cast: Kim Na Hyun as Kwon Shi Ah, Hong Yoon Hwa as Kwon Shi Yeon, Kim Dong Hyun as Ban Hae Sung and Yang Hak Jin as Han Gyo Seok

Episodes: 12

Reviews: It is about a fraternal twin who live completely different lives as Kwon Shi Ah has looks and everything while Kwon Shi Yeon does not. Kwon Shi Ah is a rude girl who became an idol and joined a kpop group to show that her popularity can help the group. She was not in good terms with Ban Hae Sung as they criticised each other when they had to be advertisers of a product. While Kwon Shi Ah gains such huge popularity, Kwon Shi Yeon prefers staying at home and record her voice and songs in her own radio station without showing her look.

One day, Kwon Shi Yeon saved a taror card reader while searching for his dog and the tarot card reader let her choose a card. She got “The Miracle” card which nobody picked before and she got to choose a wish she truly wanted, which was to change looks with her sister and was given a wishing charm. The journey continues as both sisters experience each other’s life. Did them switching lives make them a better person? What are some challenges they will face in this journey? Is Shi Yeon happy after living Si Ah’s life? And what is the wishing charm for? Watch to find out more.

My review: I realise many fantasy web dramas have a moral of the story behind it. Firstly, this show teach us not to be greedy of what others have and be contented with everythinf we have. Kwon Shi Yeon is happy living Kwon Si Ah’s life as she started loving Ban Hae Sung. This resulted her in being more greedy and wishing for things using the wishing charm, which has a consequence behind every wish and this may hurt the people you love. Secondly, no matter how you look, you will definitely still be precious in the eyes of the one who loves you for looks is not what that is the most important.

I really enjoyed watching this show as the twins improved each other’s life when they switched body and of course the love stories in the show, especially how the sisters came to live each other. It is definitely one of the good fantasy korean web drama I watched.

Third Colour Fantasy: Queen of The Ring

Queen of The Ring

Cast: Kim Seul Gi as Nan Hee and Ahn Hyo-Seop as Se Gun

Episodes: 6

Review: This web drama is part of the three colour fantasy and it is about Nan Hee who is ugly whose look was not accepted by others. Se Gun is a handsome clothes designer who like pretty girls. One day, they chance upon each other at a model show(details please watch the drama). She fell in love with him but did not know what to do as she was not pretty and attractive. Nan Hee’s mother gave her a ring which make her look pretty in the eyes of Se Gun in order to date with him.
Want to find out more? Please watch the drama to know what happens after that.
My review: It has been long time since I have the urge to watch drama. But the drama definitely relates to me very well and makes me have a deeper understanding of love, which is to accept one self despite of her outlooks or shortcomings. I was quite happy that they ended up together(I have always been waiting for that since the start of the drama). From this drama, I better understand that the beauty that comes from within makes a person most beautiful. So, we shall never judge a book by its cover. This is definitely a very sweet and cute storyline. I really hope everyone’s true love will like each other truthfully and not hide your real personalities to the people you love. If you want to find out what truly makes a relationship work for a long time? Check it out by watching the drama.

KBS special 2016 ep 4 review Home Sweet Home

Suddenly spotted this while watching KBS award ceremony as the leads were nominated. And thus, was attracted to watch this!

homesweethome     homesweethome-2

It feels like a movie as it is just one episode so it is a quick watch for me, too short for my liking as I am not my sister haha. The overall feel of the episode, especially the start, is very dark as it deals with the female lead, a genius scientist, making a person she likes into a cyborg so she can live with him forever, and also distorts his past memory so he only remembers her and their happy times. At first, I was a bit curious yet disturbed by the female lead’s behaviour as she is not only mysterious but also scarily domineering. However, when more is revealed I feel sorry for the female lead who has to live her life in such misery. Liked Lee Sang-Yeob’s acting as the cyborg in this episode! Expected the ending and kind of satisfied with it. Shall not give any more spoiler…Watch it to know more!
