Never cease to impress, how much cost goes to just for a back hug scene LOL. If the past episode, they have to wreck more than 10 cars just to create a back hug scene, this time they have to go shoot it at the peak of a mountain complete with the aerial view. Storywise, it's getting more intense, and next episode will be the angst. But they still manage to slip in the bromance and the humour (the Gong Yoo scene is just LOL, very short but LOL).

The bromance of these 2 immortal being is basically the essence of this drama
Pretties... )

Happy New Year everybody!

Cain & Abel epi 4-7

Out of so many drama this Fall 2016, I think I end up looking forward to this one the most. There're some chops in Ryuichi's monologues (I think around episode 6 that I feel the most that it sounds like a plot hole, and this is one of the rare moments where I wish J-drama is having more episodes, so that the story flows better and not choppy), but nevermind, this is just a minor thing that somehow my pettiness just picked up. If we look back from the beginning of the episode, the first 2 episode is quite slow, and it just picked up when Yu starts to get more work aka work harder and getting more confidence while Ryuichi is going down mentally. Love the progressiveness of how Yamada portrayed Yu character. You can see the increasing of confidence level and changes in Yu as a whole (whether this is going to be good or bad). And I find this is to be more interesting than watching Doctor X for now.

Goblin epi 5-7

This beautiful drama is going to get more angsty soon. So we have to savour all the cute and adorbs bromance which are overflowing right now. The honorary mention goes to Grim Reaper with video calls and his hung up on business card (this goes for more than 1 episode LOL). Goblin being jealous is also another funny intake but what's better than Goblin watching Train to Busan (his own movie) and got the scared shit out of it in the most embarassing way.
Though this drama is pretty, with beautiful backdrops, cinematography, fabulous OST and good looking people and also fantastic acting, it doesn't make me emotionally attached to wanting the next episode pronto (side eyeing that harem drama) and it doesn't make me mulling over the characters too (THANK GOODNESS, I got a life to live). So, I guess I can enjoy watching this drama with more freedom and appreciation ;).

Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim epi 13-14

So it takes over 11 episode for the stupid doctor to be less stupid, and it takes 13 episodes for us to see the kissing scene again, no wonder they're dangling us with carrot (that hot kissing scene) in epi 1. Skip lots of non sense, especially with those scenes with Director Do, and off course when Kand Dong Joo being stupid.

Hwarang epi 1-3

Hmm... not as impressive as I'd think. I'm more frustrated watching this than watching Romantic Doctor, tbh. The political portion is more interesting than watching the pretty people (gasp), and probably the problem is the pretty people is not that super pretty as described (or maybe I just have different preferrences). Up till epi 3, I still don't know the characters names, and the main character is blindly taking revenge and not thinking aka rather stupid. Yes, his best friend was killed in front of him, but to direct your sword against the queen just like that, seriously??? really??? Looks like writer-nim just trying to get an easy way out to move the plot and create more angst. Even So knows when to direct his sword despite all his train wreck issues (and yes I still reference whatever to that harem drama and I'm not sorry).

Can't stress enough how beautiful this drama from cinematography point of view!!! Not to mention the story, the acting is so good so far. I love how the goblin is portrayed here. Gong Yoo gives out this ancient air every now and then, very contrast to the petty and childish side of him when he banters with the shinigami. Speaking the shinigami, the bromance!!! The friendship that only lasts for 5 minutes line is totally LOL.

Our resident goblin LOVES being told that he's cool <3

Some pretties coz... just can't help it... )

You know I'll jump straight in for a BEAUTIFUL and PRETTY drama because there's a reason why it's called fantasy drama. This is the perfect medicine to move on from that harem drama (though can I really move on? Not really since we won't get anything from SBS :( ). But look at the aesthetic, Epi 1 has all the beautiful stuff from Goryeo era, and the church, but Epi 2 just up the level with the scenes in Quebec. This is like movie quality for a drama. In J-drama, I only can think of TBS big budget drama to pull this kind of similar aesthetic (eg. Tenno no Ryouriban), but apparently it becomes more and more often for K-drama.

I'm definitely a masochist for spending the entire sunny Saturday morning watching these 2 things... beautiful & pretty but at the same time, you know... making yourself emotionally twisted, as if that drama harem is not enough.

Never Say Goodbye

Nevermind that the girl's character is rather annoying and self centered (who wouldn't if the woo-er is that pretty LJK, damn), but as a whole this movie is something similar to Tamaki's Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru, only the role is reversed, and more dramatic plus angsty. Well, everything becomes angsty if there's LJK in it. The concept itself is nothing new, the lover that wishes the happiness of the other half and knowing that he's dying, he did what he thought the best for his girl, lessen her sadness and preparing her to move on. Kind of one sided and bittersweet, which is the point of angst. And I seriously hope that I get to see LJK doing rom com for a change in the future (WITH HAPPY END), because his track record of angsty work just keep piling up and my DoM heart can take it so much. The nice touch at the end, they use LJK's For A While to end the movie.
Overall, something to watch if you want to squeeze some tears while watching LJK did some fan service :p.

Goblin Epi 1

Well, at least this one is more truthful than that harem drama by stating a 'sad love story' from the get go, so you know what you're getting into and prepare your heart if the guy ended up dead, he's a goblin (a hunkie one at that) anyway. So many deaths from the first half of the episode, but at least it's balanced by the comedy side of the friction between our hunkie goblin and hunkie shinigami (I hate the hat though, what's up with that get up???). The background is beautiful (the church, the field, the sea), but I hope those pretty backgrounds don't depleted the whole budget that the latter episodes suffer. At least this is something that will probably keep me interested because I'm on the verge of dropping the rest of the current drama...
