– and so are the decisions we make in life…
Hi *shy face*
It’s been a minute.
Let’s leave it at that.
I felt… inspired, which is why I’m posting today. I finished watching the drama Seoyeong, my daughter a couple of hours ago. It’s a family drama of 50 episodes that aired in 2012/2013. It’s funny how you can read about a drama for years and then just finally get the guts to watch it. Family dramas are an investment! You have to give it more time to shine compared to other shorter dramas. You can’t expect to be hooked right away.
I did though.
This drama is such a lovely story. The message of mistakes, forgiveness, love and understanding is universal. It really pulled at my heartstrings. I love dramas that look at the complexity of human beings.
And the juice of it all, of course, are the cute couples. One thing that I absolutely adore about family dramas is that the main couple’s story is not the only story. We follow other couples that meet, fall in love and have troubles as well. It’s so refreshing. You’re not just let into one household, but many. I love it!
The girl I found annoying became loveable. The man I found frustrating became caring. The woman I found depressing became pitiful and relatable, and the man I found unreasonable I fell in love with.
Sometimes we forget that humans are 4D.
I just saw the last episode of the drama Secret. It started airing this passed fall, but I never came around to watching it. By coincidence I saw that someone recommended it so I decided to give it a chance. It’s been a while since I’ve been this addicted!
The story is about a woman who sacrifices herself for the man she loves only to receive the complete opposite. As the episodes go on the story unfoldes and the layers get deeper. Was this man worth the sacrifice and is this secret worth keeping? In the midst of the dirt a flower blossoms and gives life to a new love, but can they be together? And can they handle the truth that lies behind this unspeakable secret?
Lol, that was my mysterious way of explaining the plot without giving too much away. Trust me, it’s not depressing. This drama made me LOL hard and smile like a fool while shedding some tears. It really pulls on all of your emotions. Every episode left me craving for more which makes me really happy that I didn’t start watching this drama while it was airing. I curse myself everyday for doing that with Empress Ki. The struggle….is real!
I always know a drama is good when after the last episode I end up going to my personal DOA meetings. Yes, for the ones that haven’t heard of it; that’s Drama Obsession Anonymous. You heard it here first. The meeting usually contains of excessive wall-staring.
I have a meeting to attend.
Till next time,
Hello lovely people 🙂
Again, I disappeared!
But don’t nobody care about no explanation, right?
Right, so I’ll just jump right into it.
Did I watch the last two episodes of The heirs? No… And that shouldn’t surprise anyone who has been following this blog for quite some time. But I really wish I did though. I really wanted to review it, but as I got busy I just couldn’t seem to fall back into it. It’s been over two months!
Honestly though, I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. Because the same writer that wrote Secret Garden wrote The heirs as well, I do admit that my expectations were a bit high. I shouldn’t have thought that way. Also, I couldn’t help but feel that the story reminded me a lot of Boys over flowers, just a depressing version of it though. And the main female character….
I must admit, I’m tired of weak female leads. I’m tired of girls being dragged left and right by these overly dominant guys. If you have something to say, say it! Don’t get dragged along by a guy you don’t even like only to be harassed so much that you eventually fall in love with him? I mean, seriously people! I’m over it, which takes me to the drama I’m currently watching.
Empress Ki. Ha Ji Won never ceases to amaze me. I love how strong she is in every single drama I’ve seen her in. I love how she has a backbone and she knows what she wants. I love how she stands up for what she believes in and doesn’t let some random guy control her. I love it. I love her.
I won’t go into detail, the drama is still airing. I definitely recommend it. It’s outstading…. so far 😉
Till next time
Wahhh! I’m exhausted!
I’ve been packing like crazy lately. I’m leaving this humble abode to England as an exchange student. I’m leaving TOMORROW 0.0
Needless to say, I have no life at the moment. Which is why the review of The heirs hasn’t been up yet. I haven’t watched the two last episodes. I said I would do it over the weekend – which makes my pants burn up!
I izz a baad gurl!
Forgive me, and wish me luck ❤
Till next time,
I just couldn’t think of a clever title….
I hate the new layout wordpress has for posting posts >.<
And I forgot our username like twice…
I just wanted to point that out.
I’m currently watching The heirs. Most drama lovers are aware of it. The last two episodes will be airing this week. I won’t be able to review it as I’m out of town, but I’ll hopefully be able to do it over the weekend.
I’m excited to throw my two cents in.
I recently saw the drama The wedding scheme. In my opinion; the whole drama was a scheme!
I started watching this drama because of the title “The wedding scheme” and the description “A mother of four daughters and the president of a kimchi factory decides to embark on a grand marriage scheme for her children… by having them cohabitate with four eligible bachelors.” I wanted to watch something cute and lovey-dovey, so of course, this seemed like the perfect drama!
I was wrong….
But I don’t want this review to be misleading! The drama was good and cute, but the way the drama was advertised and the actual drama just doesn’t fit. The drama is about a mother with four daughters. The mother is the president of a kimchi factory. The factory is not doing well, so they move out of their beautiful home to a less extravagant one and they gain three male tenants who will live with them. The main focus is on one of the daughters who works at the food division of a company that the mother highly dislikes. The daughter is trying to make her mothers kimchi because the CEO of the company loves it and wants to sell it. But her mother is trying everything in her power to not make that happen. Also, the son of the CEO is in the same food division as the daughter and will also become one of the tenants. We know where this is going. (Highly predictable :P)
This is why I say that the drama itself is misleading. The drama is mainly focused on the kimchi factory and the company. 80% of their conversation was; kimchi, kimchi, kimchi. I swear, I almost dreamt about kimchi.
Lol, I’m turning into a nutcase. But yes, the mother does say in one episode that whoever marries first will inherit the factory, but nobody seemed too bothered about it. None of the daughters felt like they had to rush to get married or felt any particular pressure. There is no rivalry between the sisters so it’s a pretty peaceful drama. But I do feel like this drama gave me nothing of what I expected. So even though I still laughed really loud at some parts and smiled at the end of the last episode…..
I still feel scammed!
This is probably the longest we’ve been gone since we officially started this blog. I ended my exams two weeks ago actually, but I was just too lazy to write anything :P! Because I was so focused on school, I hadn’t been watching anything in particular, so there wasn’t really that much to write about. Soulful Stardust won’t be done with her exams in the nearest future – she has a valid excuse ;).
I will hopefully put up a drama review as soon as I finish the drama I’m watching right now. It’s called Horse Doctor. The name doesn’t do the drama justice. I have been having so much fun watching it. I can’t wait to tell you guys about it!
I’ve been loving this song
One love ❤
