Day 18: Name a Drama you dropped, and why?

Sunshine Angel

I had such high hopes for Sunshine Angel. Yes, the plot is a little overused but I expected it to at least entertain me with the lines. I thought Rainie Yang, whom I adore, (and Fahrenheit appearance) would be sufficient for me. I watched the first two episodes and I was bored. Any drama that allows you to casually pause it to do other stuff every few minutes is not worth mooning over.

I had such expectations I shouldn’t have. It needed major scene and line revisions. However, I noticed a lot of people liking this one. It just goes to show that we all have different cups of tea.

I have yet to watch the new Itazura Na Kiss-Love in Tokyo but my favorite drama character is Kinnosuke Nakamura (manga character name). In Playful Kiss he was Bong Joon-gu played by Lee Tae-Sung. In It Started With A Kiss and They Kissed Again, Jiro Wang played Jin Yuan Feng (Ah Jin). He’s Jiang Zhi Shu’s rival and Xiang Qin’s “stalker” and close friend. I love how crazy he gets yet there is unspeakable balance about this character. Though heartbroken in the end, and have every right to be angry, he still chose to be the voice of reason by giving the two protagonists a way to find each other. When a girl you love has outright turn you down, confesses her love to another man and cries when you’re about to kiss her, a man could only take so much heartache. He was depressed for a while but he never lost his humor. I love the resiliency of this character. He wasn’t easily disappointed nor did he give up his love. The love he felt for the female protagonist never left the story. The love just evolved. It was a joy to watch him gave the same love to the male protagonist when they were married. He offered loyalty and friendship to the very end. He had so much love to give that I was so happy when Taiwan’s version and manga (I’m not sure if Japan showed this. I will find out) showed how he found his own true love. One last thing I love about this character was that he never turned into a bitter rival/antagonist that would plot schemes to break the couple apart. He was heartbroken and he dealt with it like a man.

 Day 13: The last Asian Drama you’ve seen?

I missed posting yesterday so two for today.

30 Day Asian Drama Challenge
Day 13: The last Asian Drama you’ve seen? Rookies

I never thought BAKA could be beautiful. Rookies is the most BAKA filled drama and I’m not complaining. Adorable cast,simple but somehow complex plot about friendship,passion and determination made me finish this in two nights. And I almost forgot to mention that it was HILARIOUS!

Day 10: Your favorite Drama insert song? Come A Little Closer by Lara (ISWAK)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D5Fzi8kegw

This song is so ke ai.I love how they change the song’s pace and transform it to another genre that depended on the scene’s demand. Lara’s voice is just joy. The lyrics’ cute too.

I silently wait behind you

Really want to see your accidental smile

May be you do not understand my heart

I will try to flatter you

 

I’m the clumsy one in your eyes

I will not give up my will to follow you

I just need you to give me some response

I will accept a smile or a nod.

 

Can I come near a little closer

Confess my feeling to you loudly

Don’t shut yourself in your own world anymore

The warm sun welcomes you

 

Can I come near a little closer

Can I be braver a little bit

Even if I knew it’s always a one way love

I will still keep my gratitude

Smilling to you and say goodbye.

Day 9: 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge

Day 9: Your favorite Korean Drama? Princess Hours (Goong)

Image

 

I love Yoon Eun hye. She’s a kdrama Queen!I love this drama. What I didn’t like about Goong is any scene with the villain queen and the number of episodes. Any drama surpassing twenty episodes is too long for me. Things escalate too slow for me.I’m impatient. Goong’s definitely a drama I’ve watched with subs, no subs and ridiculous subs.I even watched the Tagalog dubbed and Chinese dubbed versions. That’s how much I suffered for this drama. I belted the soundtrack a number of times in the shower. This drama will always be in my recommendation list.

Day 6: Your least favorite Asian Drama?
Peach Girl Live Action

I love VanNess but I will never watch that drama again.I was disappointed at CTS with this one. The story had the goods of love, jealousy and revenge and it turned to be…just no. I don’t think I’ll ever recommend this drama to anyone. But that’s just me.
