Have You Watched Them Yet?: [22nd May – 20th July 2013]

Disclaimer: All posts are just containing my OPINION. I don’t mean to offend. I mean to give only my honest feedback. 

Note: The comments below will be my zeroth impression, though it may be influenced by what I had heard about the drama/film. I’m more for shows that experiment( find something new in the old) or have a different script.

Besides shows which have already released, I will also be adding shows which are on its way to the screens:)

Movie Picks

1. You Are More Than Beautiful stars Gong Hyo Jin and Park Hee Soon. Like what JB said, the movie seems like it’s a plot out of a romcom script(dying dad’s wish for son to get married, so he gets a fake wife!), except done in a thoughtful, matured manner. I love that the film has hints of being melancholic but funny at the same time. With both actor and actress on board this project, I have high hopes for this. The movie is entirely shot in Jeju Island.

Have You Watched Them Yet?: 7th March – 21 May 2013 [updated 4/8/13]

So yes, this is the drama/film version of ‘Have You Listened To Them Yet’, which I have been doing for songs and covers from March-June. I figured that it wasn’t very appropriate to use the original titles, since these aren’t very recent updates.

Note: I haven’t watched the films and shows below so the comments will be my zeroth(because there’s a first?..and before that is zero..so..ehehe :P) impression. More information is a click away:)

Movie Picks

1.High Heels: The film sounds like it’s going all out with the comedy, with Cha Seung Won leading as a cop, Ji Wook, from the ‘Violent Crimes’ department who wants to be female. That’s so extreme O.O I mean, I totally love Cha for his masculine, charismatic image and imagining him as someone who wants to change his gender and do girly stuff (like wear heels for instance, or even shopping) is just mind-blowing. I am very curious as to whether another actress will play after-operation-Cha, or will Cha continue playing the character, just in female-wear and wigs? 

Also, transgender is no small matter in Korea, especially for men. Perhaps the plot will inject some seriousness with regards to how the family takes it…unless the cop doesn’t have a family… I’ve been thinking too about whether Cha Seung Won’s decision to change gender is related to the character’s occupation and the cases he handled and handles. Esom will play the role as a bff(I suppose), Jang Mi, in helping the man with his wish, while Oh Jung Sae acts as Cha Seung Won’s rival, Heo Geon. Casts include Go Kyung Pyo and special appearances by Oh Ji Ho, Ahn Kil Kang and Lee Eon Jeong

Another show that’s along the same lines as High Heels is Kim Myung Min‘s Kang Ho’s Childbirth Story. Why do the two guys have to be a ‘Violent Crimes’ cop?! Or why don’t the two films merge!

Review #8: Pasta(2010)

Hello! The review next up ‘Pasta’ is finally done. Whew.

* Spoiling the show for you beyond this message, by yours truly*

Considering my issues with long dramas( Referring to those I choose to watch. HK ones are daily so I don’t feel the strain on my time. I know, I don’t make sense.) , it’s a wonder how I could commit my time to watch Pasta.The thing with these long shows is how they write and time or pace each content-of-the-day, the build-up of the tension and the cliff-hangers. I really don’t mind spending my hours watching a long show, if it gives me a good pace and good content every hour. 30-episodes-and-more shows just give me the impression that I have to either endlessly wait for the main story/romance to come to fruition (Eg Queen of Reversal. Bahh the things I do for my favourite celebs. But..then..I got tired and ran away. Sorry Park Shi Hoo!!) or watch an exciting first half, possibly with children or teens, and then get disappointed at the lack of anything happening in the second half because the writer/director-nim had probably lost steam or something( Eg. Queen Seon Deok?).
