I haven't been watching any drama in particular nowadays, I guess work is getting in a way and the unnecessary stress level starts to build up lately, but anyhow, I finally finish watching this pretty drama. At the end of the day, unfortunately this is what it came down to, this drama is a pretty drama, the color, the scenes are pretty, there's no doubt about it. But then? Ah, this is where all the ugly parts come about.

Read it at your own discretion, may contain spoiler, but since this is my blog... )

I actually have the caps done BEFORE I went back Singapore, and thought of writing the rest during my vacation... as if that's going to happen. Now back down under, the caps are still here and nothing written, plus they already up to episode 8, far away from episode 2 obviously. But nevertheless, it's a shame to waste caps (especially the pretty ones), so here we are. Bride of Water God is based on manhwa, and that's the only similarity, story-wise. Just like the terminology of 'remake' in Criminal Minds, the term 'live action' shouldn't be used for this series. They should just use 'inspired', not even adaptation, if they're just going to take the theme and some if not all the characters' names, and have the story completely different from the manhwa counterpart. Thankfully I'm not invested in the manhwa so I'll just look at this drama as a clean blank canvas, and yes, without being attached to the manhwa, it's a nice light romcom drama to watch. TVN doesn't really disappoint me so far.

Divine blessing from a Water God? What could it be, hmmm...

Bless us with the prettiness... )

The upcoming Nam Joo Hyuk's drama (yeah, now I know the kid's name and even know how to spell it LOL). Read the manhwa halfway and the overall story is good, though the manhwa itself is confusing to read, at least for me. I mean, we have a tortured damaged male lead, a pretty and strong female character, lots of dubious, or just plain evil side characters, so what more can you ask for a drama? Which probably this is why it's made to a live action. Only... why they change the setting to modern era, I mean, look at this teaser! Just.. Look!! Nam Joo Hyuk is so freaking pretty, WITH LONG HAIR! That's why he's so noticeable in Scarlet Heart Ryeo, well, aside from his character being the adorbs cinnamon rolls, but before that it's his prettiness that caught my eyes (I'm just a sucker for pretty stuff).

Will this drama be a good one? I DON'T KNOW, especially knowing that it's so hard to judge live action without seeing it butchering the original works, especially if you already have the major setting change from the get go. But oh hey, just enjoy the prettiness that is Nam Joo Hyuk. And I really want to know how they're going to have the interchanging between adult Ha Baek and kid form Ha Baek... don't tell me they change that as well?
