Bidding farewell to SUFBB

What a brilliant way to end, SUFBB. I couldn’t have asked for more, couldn’t be happier. Everything ended the way I’d wanted, but the route it took to get there was unexpectedly different and refreshing. No over the top or excessively dramatic tropes, it managed to stay genuine and heartfelt thruout. Certain scenes made me cry, some made me laugh, rest just brought big wide smiles to my face. A drama which I’d dived in with no expectations whatsoever (ok, well I did expect it to have loads of eye-candy, that’s all), it ended up blowing all expectations and took everything out of the park and water, however and whatever you call it. It didn’t have great or WOW actors, most of them are noobs and rookies (a few have never even acted before). But yet they managed to convey to us such genuinely relatable and real characters. They made me care a lot more than I’d expected myself to. The writing delivered amazingly for such a genre (about friendship and music) and the directing meshed well with everything. I may have been slightly critical and picky about the dramas I’ve watched in recent years, but SUFBB defied all of that (in spite of some flaws, no drama is perfect) and allowed me to focus on how much I was moved and touched by the bigger picture, the story and characters instead.

GF and DB couldn’t have said it better with their SUFBB recaps. They’ve said all that I’d wanted to say about the drama. Every single word, and cannot agree more.

It’s been long since I’ve been this glum bidding farewell to a drama that I enjoy and love. Even History of The Salaryman didn’t affect me this much (the ending was too cop-out for my taste). Tho I’m sad to let the drama and Pure Eye Candy go for good, I’m more than delirious that it’d ended with a huge bang. Yes it was a happy ending for all, but I loved loved loved that it didn’t stretch things too far and make it all sugary or cheesy. It wasn’t overly ideal or perfect, but yet it still maintained the level of realism that the drama has been going for all this while.

Last, time to say goodbye. Not the best feeling ever, but at least I know that whenever I want to indulge in good music, or whenever I feel like having a great time with the boys, I can always go back to PLAY.  SUFBB, is a 100% keeper, for entertainment. And for lessons and values to be learned in life.

Don’t let the PRETTY fool you.

Thank you drama. THANK YOU!

On SUFBB and Friendship

SUFBB 13 and 14, waddaheck did you DO TO ME?!?!? T____T

The above is just an understatement, I’m sure a lot more people suffered worse. If you didn’t cry or bawl your guts out watching the break-up of Ji Hyuk’s band, you must have a heart of stone. You’re not from this world. T____T

Pure Eye Candy, can you guys be together forever?! Can you guys, PLEASE? I can’t take it any more, it breaks my heart to see you guys rift apart, from each other and from your love for music. The agony seeing you misunderstand each other, over things which could have been sorted out if you guys had proper communication and mutual understanding. The torment seeing each of you hide your real feelings knowing how much all of you want to be together. The pang in the heart – it’s unbearable. >__<

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).

Gimme a Kwon Ji Hyuk please!

Ahhhh… just when I thought Byung Hee’s absence would kill me…

Apparently NOT, when Sung Joon‘s Kwon Ji Hyuk is doing such a great job filling his void. His genuine love for his members makes me smile so wide, his thoughtfulness towards Su Ah renders me a crazy swoony loony, and his caring nature behind his rough exterior? Be still my heart. I fear by the next episode, I would have totally forgotten about Byung Hee aiks (miahne Min Ki ssi) and my heart ===> solely on Ji Hyuk ♥. Of course we  also have Sung Hoon, who’s equally an intriguing character with so much more layers than just being the saggaji and arrogant leader of Strawberry Fields. But oh, when heart’s already chosen, it stays. heeee~~~

It’s kinda ironic because I was one of those went all out bashing Sung Joon in his previous drama Lie To Me. Not that the drama had any good material to offer, but apart from the leads’  chemistry (which many loved but I’d failed miserably to detect), I guess you could say that the drama was an utter downright crappy failure. I even considered him a miscast in it. o_0

But hola, in just one turn, I’m actually loving his performance in this flowery boy band drama?! It’s not a mind-blowing performance by any means, and he certainly isn’t what I would call a good actor (yet). But I guess charisma-wise, he definitely has it. And spunk, gimmmeeee more baby Ji Hyuk! ❤

PLUS, you don’t mess with men…err…boys (I just realized he’s younger than me by half a decade o_0) who can sing! ^^

Shut Up Flower Boy Band: First Impressions

Darn Lee Min Ki, why just a friggin CAMEO??!!!!!

I suppose everyone who has seen the first 2 eps of Shut Up: Flower Boy Band would have reacted the same way as I did. Who would have thought a cameo character would be able to garner so much love and attention in just 2 episodes?! It’s so UNFAIR it’s killing me! And it makes me wanna cry T_T because not only have I been missing this guy on my TV for ages, he has to come back in a cameo role, make me fall head over heels for his character Byung Hee, and leave in a zippy (cos he’s a cameo DUH). He just has to do that to us fans huh?!

WAEEEEEE?!?!?!?!
