My Arashi Drama Rating part 2


The List...Collapse )

My Arashi Drama Rating part 1

The list is purely subjective. Those are not in this list would mean I haven't watched them or I haven't finished them or I dropped them or I just don't have much or enough opinion about them.

The list...Collapse )

My J-Drama List

It's good that I was asked about Drama List because honestly I lost track of what I've watched. I just list down what I can find on my HDs and what I remembered watching. I only include what I finished, so those half way and drop are not in this list. I just mention once for those who has Season 1, 2, 3 plus SP plus movie, whichever. You can google them and it'll include the whole franchise :).

I used to watch K-drama too and I think that list is also long, but... I'm not in K-drama land anymore...
I put in the cut because I just realize that it"s... LONG...Collapse )

I won't update this so often, maybe at the end of the year LOL...

That Harem Drama and That Evil Queen

While we're waiting for the continuation of the horrid ending that we're left of this week (I still couldn't let go of it until I watch the next episode), let's talk about the character that everybody hates, that evil Queen Yoo. She's the mother of 3th (Wang Yo), 4th (Wang So) and 14th (Wang Jung) prince with the very clear one objective in this drama, to rise up to be the King's mother. And for her to reach that position, she won't hesitate to use her children as tools. To make the story short, basically so far she scarred little Wang So's face when protested the King for not taking more concubines, then threw away Wang So to be 'adopted' since she saw him as the damaged good, then literally made Wang Yo to do all the dirty jobs, while mercilessly insulting, assaulting the other ladies beneath her who she deemed had crossed her. Wow, we're not even halfway through the whole series yet and we'll see more scheming & insults from her, for sure.

Yes, she's so full of hate especially towards our angsty tsundere, Wang So, but that's what fascinating about her.

Who don't feel like throwing something at her?

OK, let's get off this heavy topic with the new OTP, Wang So x any trees. I mean, he made friends with them, gave them names, and even gave them away as gifts <3

Have a good weekend guys! And I can't wait for Monday (only until October! LOL)

My K-drama List

Might as well make this list before I forgot what I've been watching. I should have done this a long time ago before I stopped on K-drama so that I know where I left off, not that it matters but it could make my watching routine/binge more structured and more efficient because right now I'm just jumping around on any drama that I thought would be interesting, though some ending up in the dumping bin. I won't mention those that have gone to the dumping bin, only those that I managed to finish, whether with tons of fast forward or not. It'll be still a long list, but I'd think still be lesser than the J-dorama. And since it'll be a lesser list, I'll just put a short thought on what I like or whatever.

Again, emphasizing of my criteria of a drama. Visual is the utmost importance. There's no point watching a drama unless the story is really good and appealing to me if there's no visual. I'm dealing with lots of shit and excels everyday, so I need to see something pretty and think less at the end of the day. Another habit of mine is going through actors' resume if I want to do a binge watching. I like to see how an actor grow (or not) and the type of works that he'd chosen.

Here we go...Collapse )


D.Gray-man Hallow Ep 9

OMG NOOOOOOOO!!!! I almost stop breathing when Kanda turned into stone! This anime is a freaking roller coaster! So how Kanda going to go back to Allen since Alma died already? Anime surely know that D.Gray-man is not D.Gray-man without AllenxKanda, yeah? And WTF that hitler cosplay dude is still alive! Should have just kill him instead of killing the innocent Alma, sobs! And what will happen to Allen? Gosh gosh...


That Harem Drama Epi 1 - 3

Yes, this 2016 harem drama finally graced us all with not just 2 but 3 episodes for the first week, and so far? It looks amazingly beautiful. Bigger budget makes a difference. And off course, with the eye candies overload, the visual effect is just multiplied by a lot.

The cinematography is breathtaking and impactful! The prettiness!

Plot wise it moves quite fast for a saeguk drama, a good effort to cram in the over 30 episodes of Chinese version. However, I'd strongly suggest not to compare this with the Chinese version because it's different from the get go. I'd say this drama is inspired by the Chinese version or the Korean take of the novel rather than a re-make. The concept is the same, the girl time travelled and landed in another girl's body in the past, and the past is the kingdom with lots of handsome princes. But from here, comes all the differences. The most apparent is the princes' cliques. In Chinese version the 4th and 13th were like BFF, not in here, and 8th prince didn't hang out with 3rd prince in Chinese version. The queen's favoritism is the same though, but the 14th prince character is different. He's more gullible and well loved here, which is interesting on how this will go later (I have high hope in Ji Soo's portrayal of 14th prince in the future episodes). Heck, even the 4th prince has a completely different take in here. The 4th prince that I know from the Chinese version is a rather stoic with the calm outer appearance but we all know that he's scheming inside his head. Completely different from here whereby we're blessed with a broken wounded misunderstood awkward tsundere who could actually looks cool in modern time, but ended up being feared and loathed (by his own brothers and even mother to booth!) in this ancient period. The king in here is also very different from the Chinese version, he's more humane, as in the drama gave the audience his inner thought of slight guilt/regret towards how he treated the 4th prince, while the Chinese version focused more on how the king was feared and a literal tyrant (how many people being executed for silly or valid reasons, regardless, in that drama? Countless). All these differences may merged later in the future episodes, but so far, these are the gaps in my book.

Sorry, I just have to make this one bigger, any complaints?
So, what's this drama is in for me? After episode 3, this drama is literally a homefield game for Lee Jun Ki, and the drama team knows it, hence so many (literally) close up face shots of him. And the person himself seemed to have too much fun playing the 4th prince, and he never fails to impress me with his acting. His facial expressions here, the eyes (his eyes speak a million words, and in here with the mask and only clearly showing 1 eye, it's even more impressive), the gazes, the movements, are very smooth and natural. You'll feel for 4th prince (plus pet & hug him and telling him it's all right) even though he just killed 10 people at one sitting and for those scenes his half of his face is covered with blood (and the other half is with the mask LOL). Look forward for more prettiness, angst, and more angst from 4th prince.

4th prince close up shots appreciation since he"s so bloody damn pretty here...Collapse )
D.Gray-man... what is this that I've watched??? Kanda was just too pitiful (but white hair Kanda is bloody damn cool!!!), and before we're going to get more Kanda angst, we'll have intermesso of Allen's angst??? Earl, what is it that you actually want? All those sufferings... each episode is just toying my heart. I don't really understand why Alma must kill Kanda though, he kept on saying that if he doesn't kill Kanda he'll... what? WHAT? Sorry, I ain't a mind reader, so just spell it out! In this episode, there's no thinking in Kanda, he kept on charging & attacking and it's heart wrenching. AND, why the hell is that hitler look-a-like dude still alive? The hatred that I got on him is deep, very deep (both his face & character are equally hatred-friendly).

And 1 more day to that harem drama... finally, but I'll wait for subs or maybe after 2 episodes, or maybe 4, but don't think I can last that long wait though. The longer preview just increases the temptation, sigh. This drama is practically a Fushigi Yuugi live action without 4 gods and all the magic, but still have the action. Just look at the princes, the eye candies <3. The me who don't watch Chinese drama purposely watch both season of Scarlett Heart just for this (1st season is good despite the long winded merry go round, that's why it's bloody damn long, 2nd season is meh and pissed me off real bad, no saving grace). The C-version is like watching a pre-set otome game with all the options explored. At this point, I don't really care what the K-version will be like, just look at the visual will make me happy. And since this drama sucks LJG's weight so much (he looks so bloody damn scrawny now, it's freaking me out), it'd better be good.

and I have a swollen toe now. The poor toe just endured the hit of the fallen of a mixing bowl with 1 kg of meatloaf mix. Thanksfully the bone is still in tact!



The flu bug is flying around me non stop for the last 4 days :(. Having porridge as your diet is good for a day or 2, but it's getting annoying now because we don't have that many condiments here (the thought of having to go city to buy them while you're coughing and sneezing is... nope). I already did the chicken porridge, the dried scallop porridge... what else? Leek porridge? I basically run out of ideas, and the flu is still here...

Watched D.Gray-man ep. 6 & 7 and OMG, human beings are just so cruel. Kanda didn't really deserve all those painful memories and to even snoop around his memories without his permission, sobs sobs, how many episodes they plan for Kanda vs Alma battle? I don't really want Kanda to kill Alma again for the second time, it's just too heartbreaking.

And speaking of heartbreaking, W ep. 9 is equally heartbreaking, and Kang Chul's solution backfired too! The killer has too many variables, can't wait for the next ep, 1 week is just too long of a wait. Kang Chul'd better pay Yeon Joo's heartbreaking scenes with quadruple cuteness overload in near future episodes!

and nobody expresses how awesome W is better than Prof Park.
