SERIES REVIEW: FIGHT FOR MY WAY

I know this was a little bit delayed but anyway here are my thoughts on the series Fight For My Way, which ended recently.

It started out great – witty, funny and i just love the friendship between the four main casts. However, somehow along the way, I got a little bored – the story felt stagnant. It felt as though it didn’t get any more interesting that it already was. It just felt…hmm… sort of dull?

I wished that it got more intense or at least interesting but somehow it didn’t really happen. I wouldn’t call the series boring, it just felt like it could have done much more.

I love Joo Man and Sul Hee. Their relationship is somehow relatable in certain ways, and they’re so cute ❤

Aera is a gem and I really wanted more of her sass. Pity that we couldn’t see more of it.

While it started out cute and fun, I think that overall the drama is easily forgettable. There wasn’t any particular strong subplots in it – just some funny moments which is engraved in my memory like Aera calling herself crazy at the police station and Joo Man saving Sul Hee who choked on strawberry dipped in yogurt. Yup the two best moments for me.

Worth a watch? Well – if you have time to spare, why not. It’s at least worth a try because sassy Aera is worth it.

SERIES REVIEW: MAN TO MAN

vlcsnap-2017-06-12-07h16m42s929

I started on this pretty late but I managed to finish it within 3-4 days? I wouldn’t say that it’s mind-blowing awesome, but it was indeed enjoyable and addictive.

It’s different from most of the dramas I’ve watched and it has a good balance between action and comedy. Personally, I wouldn’t have complained if we had more action because Park Hae Jin is so hot. And even more so when he’s in action.

Rather than the plot, I was more interested in watching the characters because I find them adorable and unique. If I would say… it’s the characters which makes the whole drama much more enjoyable. The plot on its own wasn’t exactly anything special to scream about.

SERIES REVIEW: TUNNEL

vlcsnap-2017-06-26-09h41m03s716

I know this is long overdue but I had to do a write up on this because I really enjoyed it a lot.

First of all, I am impressed at how OCN always delivers their crime/thriller dramas so well. And their newest addition to it is Tunnel.

Basically, it’s about how Park Gwang-Ho, a detective, who accidentally travels through time (to the future, 2017) while chasing a serial murderer. There he meets Kim Sun-Jae, his previous partner, Sung Sik, and Shin Jae-Yi and they work together through a series of crimes, while trying to find the serial murderer of the past.

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.
