REVIEW: Novoland, The Castle in the Sky

vlcsnap-2016-11-09-22h12m12s271Alright, I’m not sure how should I go about reviewing this. I started this because it looked interesting and someone recommended me to give it a try.

It was interesting initially, but I can’t deny that there are a lot of things which made me frustrated. I’m glad it was only 28 episodes long and I didn’t have to waste more time on it.

In fact, when it comes to chinese historical or wuxia dramas, I have a little bit more patience in me, maybe because I grew up watching these kinds of dramas.

REVIEW: Jealousy Incarnate

vlcsnap-2016-11-15-06h49m27s265Finished Jealousy Incarnate!

I love this drama! It was quirky, unique and funny! There isn’t much to say about the drama, just that you have to be in “the mood” to watch it, to fully enjoy it.

I’m not sure about others, but for me, I have to have a certain mood to watch this. It wasn’t exactly a drama I could just watch anytime, anywhere. But every time when I watch it, it leaves me laughing like a mad woman.

The characters are all crazy. And I like that ❤

I would recommend this for anyone who wants a good laugh. But, be warned, it’s not your straight up romance comedy.


REVIEW: On the way to the Airport


I finally finished On The Way To The Airport! It’s an amazing feat because I’ve been so busy lately it’s so hard to catch up and finish a drama.

Overall, I thought the drama was good. It had this certain consistent mood throughout that there wasn’t any moment which I thought was randomly added or thrown in. I watched this basically without any expectations but I do find it pretty decent.

However, as the theme of the drama is about two married individuals being attracted to each other, it might make some viewers uncomfortable.

[REVIEW] Chihayafuru (Film & Anime)

vlcsnap-2016-10-22-08h54m35s595I watched the movie out of curiosity. The casts looks great so I was tempted to give it a try though I didn’t have much idea on what the film was about. And that was one of the best decision I’ve made. It was a great movie and I loved it!

Basically it’s about Chihaya, a high school girl who is crazy about Karuta, a Japanese card game. She wants to start a karuta team in school, so that one day, she could reunite with her childhood friends, Arata and Taichi. Taichi ends up in the same high school as her, and she asks him to join her.

The movie has two parts – part one focuses on Chihaya starting a karuta club in school and recruiting 4 other members before joining a competition. Part 2 of the movie is Chihaya & Taichi’s “quest” to find the reason why Arata stopped playing karuta, and more matches.

POV DISCUSSION: Scarlet Heart Ryeo Ep 10 & 11


Things take a nasty turn and tears are shed. The latest episode where Court Lady Oh sacrificed herself is nothing short of beautiful. Loyalties and feelings are tested against reality and in this important moment is where everyone shows their true colors and their choices.

Will this be the turning point in the drama?

There are a couple of things which happened, such as 8th prince turning his back on Hae Soo and Court Lady Oh’s death. I would expect Hae Soo to finally understand that life is the palace is not as easy as it may seem. Court Lady Oh’s death is more than enough reason for her to finally learn the hard way that every step in the palace is like walking on thin ice.

It doesn’t matter how sincere, kind or loyal you are. It doesn’t matter what kind of person you are, as long as you are living in the palace, anything and anyone could be used against you. One wrong move, even if it isn’t yours, could mean death. And sometimes, having unnecessary attention can bring death as well.

POV DISCUSSION: Scarlet Heart Ryeo Ep 8 & 9

vlcsnap-2016-09-21-18h11m08s051Yes! This was what I was waiting for! Finally~

Things gets more interesting and exciting as Hae Soo finally realizes that 4th is Gwangjong of Goryeo, who is known to be a cruel ruler. Complicated emotions and relationships; consequences of every little action…

Will she just stand and do nothing, or will she try to change fate? But the real question is whether they can avoid fate…?

FINAL REVIEW: W – Two Worlds

vlcsnap-2016-09-17-14h00m18s460I stopped watched W a few weeks back actually, at Episode 10, but managed to catch up and finished the last episode today.

I have mixed feelings about the drama. It started out really good but somehow along the way, it was very hard to keep up with the drama. That was one of the reason why I stopped watching it for a while before getting back to it.

However, it doesn’t mean that the story is bad or anything like that. In fact, I do think that the quality of the drama is great from start to finish. The graphics and execution were all amazing.

POV DISCUSSION: Scarlet Heart Ryeo Ep 6 & 7

vlcsnap-2016-09-14-13h40m55s635I feel that things are finally starting to move forward but I’m still not sure what kind of drama Scarlet Heart Ryeo wants to be. I’ll discuss about this in a while.

So Hae Soo finally enters the palace, though it was really weird that she was betroth to the King. Well, at least we know the King was only doing it for political reasons and not that he really needed another wife.

I’m still confused by Ji Mong’s existence. I’m not sure what kind of role he’s supposed to be in the drama. Will he just simply be the astronomer? Or is the drama trying to make him a character which knows Hae Soo is from the future – or something along those lines?

DISCUSSION: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (Historical background)

Okay, it’s time to get to work. The best part about BBJX was that the famous battle for the throne can be read online and there’s plenty of information which works the same way as a drama synopsis.

So I did a little digging into Goryeo’s history to see what we can find. There wasn’t much information available honestly – so it doesn’t help much and we still don’t know what’s in store for us in the drama.

Those watching the drama and do not wish to read spoilers – DON’T CONTINUE READING
