Review Package 1: Reviews #11-13 part 3

This part covers 2011 Drama City Hunter.

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

Dramabeans was raving about how good the show was but somehow, I wasn’t impressed or invested in City Hunter. It could be that I was expecting good things but then again, 49 Days didn’t disappoint me. Well, sans the last episode. Why did I have to recall it?! 😦

The Storyline in brief and my opinions.

Lee Min Ho plays City Hunter Lee Yoon Seong (err..shouldn’t he actually use a fake name?) who sets out on a revenge mission against the Big 5 as a result of a dark past that involved his late father  living drug lord of a father fathers. With such a project, he has to stay away from affairs of the heart as much as possible. As if that’s possible. The other party isn’t simple. She’s (Park Min Young/Kim Na Na) a bear Blue House bodyguard!

* Spoiling the show for you beyond this one-liner, brought to you by yours truly*

Here’s 2011’s 4-episode-r Hair Show not-a-review review

The storyline, the characters and acting 

Lee Seung Hyo leads the show as an arrogant but talented (aren’t they all? Seriously..) hair stylist/designer Eun Su who returns to the hair sce..ne(?) in Korea( of course) from England to prove that he’s got skills, since a critic smashed his work back in England.

Review Package 1: Reviews #11-13 part 1

Hello again! Remember I said I was doing a final year surprise for the end of this year? Here it is:D The first review will be for 2010 Drama…

*wait! Spoiling the show for you beyond this message~ Feel free to carry on now~*

Dr. Champ…

~Storyline~

The show is basically about the going-ons in the national training centre (Taerung) in which our 4 main leads will meet and interact. Kim So Yeon(Kim Yeon Woo) and Uhm Tae Woong(Lee Do Wook) play the new doctors who arrive (and are stationed) at the sports centre while Jung Kyeo Woon(Park Ji Heon) and Cha Ye Ryeon(Kang Hee Young) play a Judo athlete and a swimming coach respectively. The drama’s main sports in focus are Judo and Swimming, which introduces the hot-bods-galore team Judo team (Jung Seok Won/Yoo Sang Bong, coachies and the rest) and a female national team swimmer(Kang Sora/ Kwon Yoo Ri).

Now let me complicate matters. I’m good at that. Haha. : Kim Yeon Woo and Park Ji Heon has a love-line, but before that, Ji Heon had a crush on her while Yeon Woo has something going on with Do Wook. But then, and as expected, Do Wook had a past with Hee Young that ended on an ugly note. Yoo Ri is Cha’s student and she has a crush on nice-butt Ji Heon, but Ji Heon’s heart has now gone to Sang Bong Yeon Woo. Sang Bong and Ji Heon had(if im not mistaken..) and will continue their bromance-line. However, like all dramas, something must happen to test this lovely friendship. Sigh~

Review #7: Soulmates (2006) [edited 15th Aug 2012]

Another review done!

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

Soulmates is another dramabeans recommendation that I tried out but didn’t have as much love for it as JB did.

What is it about?!

Soulmates, as you can infer from the title, is a drama about love or finding love. The initial episodes were great for me simply because my interest lied more in the comical-yet-true aspects of dating life – how each gender view love and dating, and the things people do (to get the upper hand). I actually thought things would carry on being this fun and quirky but then the second half took the drama-mama route. So, I practically watched the second half for the sake of knowing the ending and of listening to the OST. Ha.

The main focus of the show then? Do people date for love or companionship or do they, for the sake of an experience or marriage? Worse, do they take dating as a game?

Review #6: A Crazy Little Thing Called Love(Thai Film, 2010)

Yes. This is a Thai movie review. So, apologies if you guys, the readers, were waiting for a korean film/drama review. It was an unexpected decision to see it because never in my life would I have thought of having a thai film in my list of have-watched films/dramas but, it was a pleasant surprise!

When my friend introduced this movie to me, I was a little hesitant about the suggestion. I wasn’t exactly excited about thai productions since most of the shows they are famous for are violent fighting shows. But then again, it’s a show with ‘love’ in its title..so..

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

The Storyline

Anyway, ACLTCL is first and foremost, a film about crushes with Nam’s told in an ugly-duckling-to-swan style.
