POV DISCUSSION: The Liar & His Lover

vlcsnap-2017-04-10-22h07m23s723Okay – So I finally started on The Liar and His Lover! (and I’ve already finished the 6 episodes…) 

I took some time to start this for various reason – one of it was because I wasn’t keen on the casts and secondly was I had no time!

Anyway, firstly, I had been unhappy over the casting but despite it, I would say the drama didn’t turn out as bad as I thought it would. In fact, I actually kind of like it. I guess that’s the power of a good story.

Well – I never doubted the story in the first place since it is after all an adaptation of a manga.

Drama Slump and Busy Schedules :(

Hey guys!

It’s been a while since I last wrote and I haven’t been writing much on dramas for so many months 😦

I’m going through a drama slump period – nothing appeals to me 😦 Well, nothing is addictive enough for me to write about.

I dropped so many dramas over the past months! Right now, I’m only watching Radiant Office and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I love Radiant Office so maybe I’ll drop by again to do a short write up on it.

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon has been disappointing thus far but I’m still watching it because I love the cast.

I need to watch Whisper but I don’t have the time right now 😦 Hopefully I get out of this slump soon…..

Anyway just dropped by to say hello 🙂 Hope you guys are enjoying whatever you’re watching ^^

POV DISCUSSION: Missing Nine Ep 7 – 10

vlcsnap-2017-02-18-12h14m53s544And boy look what do we have here….it’s weird but Missing Nine continues to keep me on my toes because I never know what to expect.

It’s funny how weird it seems but I didn’t really like the drama that much at the start but I would have to admit that with each new episode, it gets better. First of all, I’ll say this straight, all of the 7 survivors are alive!

Now that it’s been revealed that Joon Oh is alive, I can’t wait to see what is lying ahead in future episodes.

[REVIEW] A Girl & Three Sweethearts (Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto)

vlcsnap-2017-01-17-00h11m58s121I found a gem! I was randomly browsing looking for something to watch and somehow I decided to watch Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto (A Girl & Three Sweethearts) and it was a great decision!

I loved the drama so much ❤ There’s 10 episodes and I finished it in 2 days. I would have probably finished it in a day but I still need to go about my daily life and need sleep so…

Anyway, it’s been quite a while since I last sit through and finished a Japanese drama. It’s just so hard to find a good one and something which suits me. I would actually love to recommend this to anyone who love romance drama – though not the sizzling kind, but it’s sweet and addictive ❤

[FINAL REVIEW] Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

vlcsnap-2017-01-12-07h03m30s168And it’s time to say goodbye to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo!!! I’m so going to miss this so much.

It’s been such a long time since I’ve last watched a really good youth drama. Everything about the drama screams PERFECT to me. I loved every single thing about the drama! Given that in recent years, most dramas will have a certain degree of angst included, but this drama does not have any heavy angst and yet managed to be addictive and compelling to watch.

There’s a lot of youth dramas available but this really stands out the most to me right now because of how smooth the story actually flowed from beginning to the end. And not forgetting how each character totally owned their roles and no one stick out as a sore thumb.

[REVIEW] Evil Minds 1 & 2

Recently I’m having a lot of ‘feels’ for criminal dramas. I’ve recently finished Dr Qin Medical Examiner and I’m currently watching Memory Lost. My latest addition is Evil Minds and I’m currently watching the second second now.

I think it’s a good time to actually write a short review on it.

I wouldn’t say Evil Minds is a must watch. It’s interesting but can also get boring and draggy at times. It seems like the drama aims to show crimes and the psychological state of the criminals as well as Fa Mu, the profiler who aims to find the killer. He works together with Tai Wei, a detective who sort of have a quick temper.

Personally, I do find some of the crimes interesting. However, I get bored occasionally at certain episodes when there is little progress to the story. Part of me actually wishes that there are more individual murders which they crack rather than a string of murders which are related and lasts a few episodes or maybe even the entire season 2 (?) before the criminal is found.

But anyway, I guess it’s still pretty decent since I’m still watching it. Or maybe I’m watching it just for Tai Wei. Hah. ❤

I’m still itching for a good crime or mystery drama, please let me know if you have any good ones to recommend 🙂

note: i’ve watched love me if you dare and when a snail falls in love. 

[REVIEW] Ao Haru Ride / Blue Spring Ride (Anime, Manga, Movie)

vlcsnap-2016-12-29-10h19m41s454I was looking for an anime to watch and came across Ao Haru Ride which had a lot of positive reviews and I’m glad I did. I got hooked pretty quickly and finished the 12 episodes within a day.

As the anime only covers up to volume 4 of the manga (there are total 13 volumes), I decided to read up the manga as well and also check out the live adaption film.

I have different reviews for the anime, manga and the movie. My personal favorite is the anime. If I were to judge the anime solely on its own, I would say it is one of the best anime I’ve watched thus far. However, I wouldn’t say the same thing for the movie and I have mixed feelings about the manga.

24 Dec: LeeJIN’s Current Drama Ranking

1 – Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo
2 – Oh My Geum Bi
3 – Romantic Doctor
4 – Goblin
5 – Solomon’s Perjury
🙂

I just started on Solomon’s Perjury and have yet to watch Night Light. Legend of the Blue Sea was dropped. My current addiction is obviously the first four on the list. All of them are great dramas. Goblin is still considered pretty new so I’m not sure if it could be considered in the safe zone yet. We never know what will happen with dramas.

Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo is a gem. I miss youth dramas and this one hits all the right spots! It’s probably one of the best youth dramas I’ve ever watched so far. Oh My Geum Bi is also really good but I need to prepare myself for the upcoming tears. Might not be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s really a good drama. Romantic Doctor is good too! I love them medical dramas and it’s not as politically focused as most medical dramas. I think it has a good balance of medical scenes, romantic scenes and political scenes.

That’s about it right now. Probably will check Hwarang out soon. Happy Holidays everyone! Merry Christmas! ❤

TRAVEL: BORACAY 2016

img_20161206_111026I know this is pretty random – but I just thought it would be okay to post this here. A random post on Boracay 2016 and the rough estimate of the cost and my experience! Good things are meant to be shared!

My travel period was from 4 Dec 2016 – 8 Dec 2016. It was a 4D3N trip and I was travelling from Singapore with a friend. My total cost incurred was about SGD810, including flights and hotel. Flight + Hotel were paid beforehand. I changed SGD 350 for all expenses there. (rate was 34.6; changed at raffles place)

I was travelling with 4 other people – but staying in a hotel with only 1 of them.
