What’s poppin’ in da hood, Robin Hood?

AAAH!! That title was freaking hilarious!!

So here I am. Coming to you guys with another blog post. I wanted to share this sense of excitement that I have. Jeon Woochi started airing the 21st of November. I can’t put into words how BADLY I want to watch this drama!! Really…. I can’t!

So, the funny part about this whole commotion is that… I don’t know anything about it! I am completely and utterly CLUELESS. But, child, does it look legit!!! If my drama – senses are  on spot, this drama should be scary good! There are just times where I look at a drama and I get a sense of awesomeness ushering towards my body. It’s like those movie/music video scenes when someone important comes through a door and all of a sudden there’s wind blowing towards them and they just come out looking all amazing and fabulous. Well that’s the kind of feeling I got when I saw this drama. A lot of wind.

All that’s left is to see if I’m right! I really hope I am! Needless to say, I’m going to wait till all the episodes are out so that I can get the full effect ;). The drama is based on a novel which was turned into a movie in 2009. I’m still debating if I should watch the movie before the drama… 

Anyway, I’ll leave you guys with unsure feelings of my extremely important dilemma 😛

Runway Cop?

What do you do when the only police officer that is decent enough to go as an undercover model gets injured and you end up with……. that.

I’ll admit, I had no expectations to this movie when I first saw it. I was just bored and wanted something fun to watch. Luckily, it didn’t go wrong 😛

I was SO excited when I saw the Hong Gil Dong couple reunited. I LOVED that drama so much! When I first saw Sung Yu Ri after knowing that the main lead in the movie was Kang Ji Hwan I started to laugh. I was like “Oh my goodness, it’s her!! She’s in the same movie as her love interest in Hong Gil dong!” I thought that she was just a cameo to make us laugh since they had a 24 episode long drama together. But little did I know that she had a significant role in the movie. I must admit that it made me pretty hyped up! So if you haven’t watched Hong Gil dong, I totally recommend that drama. It’s AMAZING!

Anyway, the movie was pretty good. I don’t want to go into the plot since it pretty much speaks for itself. Sung Yi Ri is a designer that’s going to have her own fashion show, while Kang Ji Hwan is a police officer that’s going undercover as a model to investigate a drug dealing issue where one of her models is the prime suspect. I think that the movie is pretty funny and very effortless. The plot is very simple and the characters are very likable. You don’t get particularly attached or detached. It’s a perfect movie for a day you don’t have anything special to do and just need some mindless fun 😛

I would rate this movie, but I think I’m just going to leave that to you guys haha. 

The transformation happened so fast and unexpectedly, that even that became funny! LOL

[Soul] K-Movie Review : “You’re My Pet”

Hey there peeps!
I was assuming Dazzling Snowfall would write a review on this as well. So the title is to distinguish the two. This way you’ll get two opinions.

So I just recently got the chance to watch this movie. It was quite random actually, but I will not leave out the fact that I really wanted to watch it. Prior to the movie, I did not see the trailer, so now that I have seen it, I am kind of like.. “Suuure O_O”.. Oops~ not trying to ruin it for ya there ;P.. Just kidding. Don’t worry.

Quick Plot
The movie is based on a Japanese manga and there was also a Japanese drama on this. It’s about a professional woman, Ji-Eun-Yi(Kim Hanuel), who is pouring her life into work. She eventually gets herself a human pet “Momo“(Jang Geun Seuk). The story basically follows the life of Eun-Yi, how she manages her image and work, her life with co-workers and the ideal boyfriend, and how she must keep her human pet a secret, and well.. I guess you can tell from the trailer what else happens…

The Good and the Strange
The movie is cute. It has some cute moments that make you give off a little “aaaw”.. but the concept to me was quite strange. 30 minutes into the movie, I literally thought to myself “What the hell am I watching?”. Now I would understand if their “relationship” as master and pet would eventually evolve. But it’s like “Momo” has no dignity and is all puppy-face from the start. She is also quick on accepting this “pet”.. and it’s all kind of strange.

(Might have minor spoilers)
Ok.. you get to know that she is “considering a pet”. Fine. He initiates on becoming a pet. Fine. Still the whole concept falls strangely into place. I do understand why things happen the way that they do, but Momo is still partly confusing. If he doesn’t want to work with women, how can he become a pet like this?!..Or did I just miss something.. I don’t know..

Anyway, the scene development and the camera work is also confusing at times. There’s not a very precise coherence or flow in how everything falls into place, in other words.. the cinematography is at times messy.

Conclusion (No Spoiler)
Personally, I thought that it was a weird movie. Weird because I’m not a sucker for things that become cheesy and “sticky”.. LOL.. Which is all I can think of when I see “Momo”.. Like.. literally.. is he a dog?.. It could have been scripted and made much better, still it’s not half bad either. I recommend it if you’re in a mood for a “simple” movie, which runs quite moderately, and with nothing that really makes you jump up from your seat. It is cute and at times funny, so props for that!

3 out of 6 for me 🙂
