OMOOOO how cute are Hang Woo and Secretary Kim together?!!
Poor Sec Kim I don’t even remember his name in HoTS (he appeared in Ep 20), he will always be the memorable Sec Kim of Joo Won in Secret Garden for me <3333 (he and Oska both were the only saving grace of that uber BLEH drama for me).
Some random updates on mah drama watching…
History of The Salaryman
Drama continues to be awesome and kickass. Lost quite a bit of its momentum in the past 4 episodes but picked up again in the most recent Ep 20. Alas, you do need ACTION and some meat to keep the story going. Mogabi continues to force her evil and seductive ways on everyone, Bang-Chi continues to be daebak together (I love their not so overly sugary or sweet relationship, they’re just super funny and comfy together!), Hang Woo and Woo Hee have been so cute from the beginning now that angst is creeping in I feel so so bad for them..etc. But of all, I love that everything is slowly coming to light. The corporate battles and the romance. Everything’s gearing forward with full force.
This my most favourite scene in Ep 20:
I don’t know what happened, or how it happened. My heart broke into pieces, eye flooded with tears when Bang told HW how much hurt he’d imposed on WH because of his evil deeds. Jung Gyeo Woon surprised me with his acting there because while I thought he was great as the evil-cute Hang Woo, he never blew me away as much as the rest of the actors did. But there and then, at that moment, my heart WENT all out to him. It was such an intensely gripping scene, so raw, so heart-tugging, so REAL. Hang Woo may be a ruthless and evil schemer when it comes to toppling Cheon Ha and battling Bang, and many may not root for him for his evil ways. But when it comes to someone he cares about i.e. Woo Hee, he goes all out. It’s all there. That moment. Those tear-filled saddening eyes of his.
Now it’s killing me that I’d have to wait a few more days to see what happens next. The cliffhanger at the end of the ep was just too much for me to handle. )($y)(#(u$(#*_)# If Mogabi succeeds in her plan, I’m going to go mad. No joke. Although I get it may spice things up a lot more and push HW over the edge, I really cannot bear to see it happen. No friggin way!!! T____T
Dream High 2
1) Writer ruined my favourite characters Yoo Jin and Hye Sung. Jinwoon’s relegated to typical second lead status while Hye Sung’s generally back to annoying and painfully oblivious of anything and everything apart from JB.
2) Writer has no single idea how to write an inspiring drama about broken dreams. Plot is all over the place messy without a concrete direction.
3) Writer messed up my original OTP – JinSung. The original writer wasn’t any better but at least he/she managed to built up a potential connection between Yoo Jin and Hye Sung and made it believable. Now I’m forced to accept JB and HS (whom IMO aren’t compitable at all *no bashing me, just mah honest opinion*). Yeap I’m sour-graping here knowing that they’ll never end up together. But hey, you don’t just give us those precious JinSung moments in the beginning and take them all away just cos you like the idol-star more? Or just cos JYP wants to promote rookie JB? Have a feeling it’s both.
Oh wellz, I don’t give a damn now. Even if they make JinSung end up together miraculously or something, nothing’s gonna save the show for me. Dropped for good. Buh-bye.
This is probably the last time I’ll ever mention DH2, so here’s something for me to reminisce before I sail away from this shipwreck.
This is likely the last you will ever see of JinSung cuteness in DH2. If your interest is piqued, rest assured you will be disappointed. They are not the OTP.
Shut Up Flower Boy Band
Such a delectable show! LOVE IT TO BITS! *some pointers to DH2 writer, this is what you call a drama about music, hope and dreams, broken or what not* It’s not like really great or mind-blowing in any sense, but it feels genuine, deals with conflicts and complexes organically, and doesn’t just go all makjang with excessive histrionics on us. It connects.
I had the least expectations for SUFBB, but am getting the most satisfaction from it. The acting isn’t WOW or anything (just decent at best) and the story, not the most original. But like DB, GF and other avid SUFBB fans, the show just has a very mysterious hook on me. It’s like I’m under a magical spell cast by the boys. The music is a plus, and the romance, icing on the cake. But ultimately, it’s the together-ness of the band which makes it for me. Their ups and downs, their allegiance towards the band and Ji Hyuk, their inner conflicts…etc. Everything about them makes me want MORE of them.
I’m currently still on Ep 10. And the boys are just as and still as ADORABLE together as before. I get the building tension between Ji Hyuk and Hyun Soo (my 2 fav boys! heeee~~~) and I’m increasingly wary about where it may take them. Both characters have problems communicating properly, they seriously need a good talk together. One to one. Heart to heart. Ji Hyuk needs to gear up and think about his goals in life other than jsut following Byung Hee’s footsteps, and Hyun Soo, guy needs to loosen up. If drama ever rifts them apart, I am going to CRY big time. CRY! T____T
Bromance is always a big plus in my dictionary. <333 The fact that Ji Hyuk always keeps Byung Hee close to his heart is enough a reason to love him. Now all of a sudden, I miss Byung Hee T___T
Yeap drama has ended 2 weeks ago, but I’m still following the delayed version on KBSW. Everything’s pretty much summed up now. The OTPs are all together and the conflicts are all resolved, very much as we’d all predicted. As all weekend dramas do huh? Same old same old. I wish the writer hadn’t added the 10 episode extension, having seen how things had been dragged out for no reason, drama drawn out unnecessarily. But ultimately, I had a great time watching this drama for the laughs and the OTP cuteness. I’d say, quite OK for a family drama.
Hah, I’m surprised I started this. Old cable drama, police investigation focused and procedural, no famous actors or anything. I’ve seen 3 episodes, so far just OK. The cases could have been more original (but I get that in reality you don’t get crazy cases all the time), and flow could have been better. Overall, a lil bit under-par compared to TEN (which wasn’t stellar either) but definitely less glossy and than SIGN.
Equator Man > Rooftop Prince > King2Hearts >< Fashion King
Might also check out Love Rain just to see how horrible Yoona is – or how much she’s improved (I hope). Otherwise, MEH. Even with Jang Geun Seuk on board.
Oh yes, I’m also downloading A Wife’s Credentials by Lee Sung Jae and Kim Hee Ae. Heard from a reliable X that it’s really really good. And it’s directed by master Ahn Pan Seok who gave me the wonderful White Tower. Cannot wait to get started!
Last but not least, some filming BTS ofLove Recipe by Joe Cheng and my girl LDH!
Can’t say much about the OTP yet, but why do I feel so giddy seeing them together? hahaha XDD
