I will not be able to access the internet for about a week, starting this Sunday, which means that I won't be able to do Fall In Love With Me Episode 9 Recap! I might still write it when I come back to drama-land but that will mean that the recap will be a week late. Alternatively, I might just skip recapping Episode 9 and go on to do Episode 10 when I'm back. I shall see how it goes! On another note, I have been marathoning Once Upon A Time (just started on season 2!). Rather delighted with Julian Morris's cameo appearance. Even though he's better known to me as Doctor Wren hehe. My eyecandies are suffering from short-lived fates. First the Huntsman died because he tried to escape from Regina. He was kissing Emma yes, but that doesn't make his death any less tragic. T.T And then Prince Philip (or Doctor Wren, or Julian Morris) died within a episode because he was marked. T.T T.T My dear Prince Charming, please be a long-lived …

Fall In Love With Me Part ll

someone has abs now:D This drama is really growing on me. I was initially rather disappointed that we can't see Puff and Aaron again, but to be honest, the pairing of Tia and Aaron is growing on me too! While I don't think they have that great chemistry off-screen, on-screen wise I think Tia has done a good job of being Tao Zi and now I can't really vision Puff bringing a better Tao Zi (we might actually be seeing Liang Liang). I think the script for Fall In Love With Me might be a bit stronger than Just You, in that the script is really funny when it's supposed to be funny. I love scenes between Tian Xi and Fu Bo, hahahah they are like father and son! Quite eager to see what else the drama has in store for us:D <3thoughtsramble

oh no

Oh no I've disappeared again hahaha, it seems like complete free time doesn't exist since two years ago. Anyway, I've been catching up on a few things recently Aaron's new drama — what a pity Puff isn't acting in it! I guess we do have to give Tia a chance though. Those fans who kept putting Tia down and saying how good Puff was, remember she wasn't the best when she first started out on Just You…in fact I could positively say she was quite horrid in the first few episodes. So since she improved greatly, we should give Tia an opportunity to prove herself too! I just wish I could see the sparks between Aaron and Puff again, they are REALLY cute. 3 Days — not a great drama for my heart because I just can't take thriller (no idea how I survived the City Hunter days) hence I've stopped at Episode 9 after shouting at the screen because even I know that the Secret Service should be protecting the Major rather than the …

Emergency Couple Last Episode

Hooray for a misleading preview HAHA, and it's a happy ending for all as I've wanted!! *throw confetti* I love it that the main couple isn't rushing into marriage this time and that they are just taking it slow, learning from the mistakes they have made in the past. It's nice that Chief finally learns how to open his heart and to accept his past. The mothers have put down their grudges, and Yong Gyu and Ha Reum have a happy ending. What I like about this show is the exploration of the theme second chances and also relationships. Using couples of different forms (I mean different types of relationships), we see how each couple deals with the past and present circumstances. It's kind of a feel-good and sad show for me at the same time, because while I love how Oh Chang Min and Oh Jin Hee finally found their happy ending, it feels kind of wistful that these kind of second chances may never come by in reality. Their relationship worked because they …

Emergency Couple Part V

Oh no I don't have a good feeling about the last episode sighhh. Is Jin Hee gonna be sent to somewhere far away:(( and why must they make Chief see the kiss between Jin Hee and Chang Min tsk…I rather his rejection takes place along the lines of him confessing and being rejected, but no, they must make him into this sad figure who FINALLY decides to have some action, only to be stopped by some cruel 'fate' of running into the couple. On another note, I am going to miss the main couple SO much. They have so much cuteness going on, and it makes me feel good. It makes me feel as if second chances really exist in reality hahaha and that if you were meant to be, the obstacles that got thrown in your path would make sense one day. I love the scenes when Chang Min was being all prim and proper about which side he is drinking the water from (to avoid contact of saliva/indirect kissing, which is hilarious because …

Emergency Couple Part lV

Even though I am a Chang Min — Jin Hee shipper, I felt sad for Chief here when he was helping Jin Hee find Chang Min. I could see the sadness in his eyes:((( And much as I am a shipper of the main couple, I don't like how Jin Hee suddenly discovers that she has feelings/respect for Chang Min. It seems too simple and unreal, and not how I would want them to come back together as a couple. <3thoughtsramble

Emergency Couple Part lll

It's quite a pity because Emergency Couple's episodes always get released on days when I'm the busiest, hence I don't think I would be able to recap them. However, I do like how it's turning out so far hehehe. Pleaseee just give Chang Min and Jin Hee a happy ending! I admit I might be biased towards Chang Min from the start. He certainly wasn't the nicest character around and I don't like him in his immature ways. Yet, he has really become more mature in the past few episodes, and I'm sure the death of his father is going to change him and his mother in ways that are permanent and for the better. I do like the pairing of Jin Hee and Chang Min. Jin Hee and Chief make a really cute duo, but I feel like they are perhaps just a brief respite to each another rather than the significance of a new life. They make each other's hearts skip a beat, but that initial attraction and admiration…could it really be the …

Monstar Part lll

in the end, my love for this drama started to ebb away, so here's some final thoughts from me without any screenshots. I think it's a lovely drama (note: especially if you support the main couple). They do awesome covers and I like how there's a backstory to almost all the characters, so it was very satisfying to finally learn of them. However, I read both Dramabeans and Couch Kimchi's recaps for the last episode, as I decided I didn't want to waste anymore time watching or loading the shows…and the thing is, both of them dislike Seon Woo! I think I must have been quite blinded/biased/Seon Woo turned horrible in the last episode then, because I still find Seol Chan very annoying and that there's hardly any cute parts about him. True, he was super sweet when he told Ahjusshi that he grew up listening to J. Ahn's composing, but he isn't always that sweet. And he has that inferiority complex thingy going on or is it some jealous thingy that just makes him …

Monstar Part ll

There's just something better when they have wet hair. — Anyway, I must let out some of my pent-up rant right here. I may be biased because 1. I like Seon Woo's actor and 2. He's better looking to me. However, it's just not understandable why Se Yi would ultimately go with Seul Chan instead of Seon Woo. If you carve a main male lead's character, you should at least make him appealing. But he's just annoying when he likes to shout at Se Yi and hide his real feelings inside, or grab her wrist, or shout at Seul Chan when it was his own mistake to start with ("Are you a spy?" "Are you kidding, you know Hyo Rin could sing and you didn't say anything?" Hello, who was the one who told the All For One group that you guys are going to sing for the competition. Yes you, Seul Chan, so don't point your finger at someone else) I can't see what's appealing about this character other than the fact that he …

Monstar Part l

A show with one of my favourite people from The Heirs, and such a cute, pretty female lead? Bring it on man. Haha, *totally ignoring the main lead as of now* *you should have seen my reaction when I saw the second lead, I was like "WHY IS HE NOT THE MAIN LEAD* *but it's okay, maybe it will all change, just like my feelings towards JB:P* <3thoughtsramble

Behind The Scenes: You who came from the stars — Secrets revealed

So I just stumbled across this subbed clip where the interviewers polled a number of viewers and the production crew answered a few questions that they (we) all have. #1: Where is Do Min Joon's planet in actual fact? Well, in reality, KMT 184.05 doesn't exist. It's a made-up name where KMT stands for the name of the telescope and the numbers stand for stars which the telescope has discovered. #2: Did the UFO really appear in ancient Joseon times? Apparently, there is concrete evidence detailing sightings of UFO way back in Joseon times. So yes, there's very clear support. #3: How did they film the scene where the UFO was sighted? Uhmm….instead of a UFO, they shot the scenes with a helicopter, so everyone would look at the helicopter and pretend that they saw a UFO. HAHA. #4: How did they film the stop-motion scenes? Wow, this is really amazing, they use 60 cameras to capture the scene and when they overlap the film together, it will look like everything has stopped. Other interesting …

You who came from the stars Part V

"You should say your farewells ahead of time, because when the time really comes…you won't have time to say your farewells." Somehow I love it a lot that the script went back to this line. It's like an echo that resonates. Even though he loves Song Yi, and not the girl who looks like her, that girl from a long time ago does play a part in his 400 years on Earth. Him remembering his experience and lessons from the girl has a much nicer significance than if the girl was just a fleeting crush-of-sorts. I teared a lot from this episode because we are finally nearing this point, the point when he leaves. It's tomorrow in the show, and quite literally, tomorrow when the episode releases. [or today, not sure when I'm gonna post this post exactly] <3thoughtsramble

HELP

Now that I've finished Dream High 2, and am currently waiting for new episodes on Pretty Little Liars and You Who Came From The Stars, I need new dramas to watch!! This is a dire situation (lol), anyone can recommend anything? <3thoughtsramble

Review: Dream High 2

Before we go on to how I feel about this drama, we need to look at how cute JB is again. When he got a text from Hae Sung And when they broke up:(( Aww look at his sad face:(( Unfortunately, I was too taken with finishing the rest of the episodes that I didn't take any more screenshots. So what do I think about this drama? I am glad I watched it many years after Dream High. There's no sense of comparison when I watched this and I think that's good, because this is quite a good feel-good drama. As I have already classified it as a feel-good drama, I have chosen to ignore plot intricacies that honestly aren't that small a flaw, but rather obvious holes. For one, I feel that the ideas they have are good, but they need a better script to bring out the characterisation. Till the very end, they left relationships iffy and unsettled, which can be a good thing — you know how friendships can exist between males …

Dream High 2 Part 2

I really liked Yoo Jin from the start and I didn't like JB at all. However, my heart has warmed greatly towards him and I shall explain why in another entry. So here's some screenshots of him: When the principal turned around and said "I like you" Hurhur I was truly amused at his expression. This couple is quite cute actually!! Love their performance here. Then adorable JB appeared when he tried to cheer Hae Sung up. And when he just suddenly turned up with black hair, that was strange. I really enjoy watching this series but I can understand why the ratings were bad. I think it's of no fault of the cast because they all acted pretty well. JB's crying scenes probably need some brushing up but hey it's his first time. Besides, I never expect much from a idol cast, regardless of what show it is. I think the fault pretty much lies in the scriptwriting. There's so many loopholes and changes in dynamics I can't keep up with the counting anymore, …

Dream High 2 Part 1

I would do up a review soon but am currently on Episode 10 and loving this guy over here hehe: His smile. Is. So. CUTEE!!! *mindless fangirling* The puzzling thing is I haven't yet figured out who is going to end up with who haha. Also, his sudden crush on Hae Sung is quite sudden hmm. <3thoughtsramble

As you guys know, I was really busy for the past two years that I pretty much stopped a lot of recapping projects. It was all about surviving life for me (of course watching dramas still continues as that is part of me surviving life:P) However, this idea popped into my head a few days ago and I decided that I would just go along with it. I really miss writing. As life takes a toll, there was really no time for to express myself anywhere. Writing in a diary takes so much time I only limit the writing to really emo entries. A few days ago, I was in a lousy mood again and I thought — hey I really want to share my feelings here. It offers me the anonymity which is such a beauty because then I can be myself and maybe more people can relate. So, if once in a while, you see these entries titled (as of now) Raining #(a number), it's probably one of my more reflective entries, usually …

You who came from the stars Part lV

I finally caught up with the last three episodes and I really love them:') I felt that Episode 14 was brilliantly executed even though there was a significant dip in tension for 5/6 of the episode because what we are really doing is just filling in the gaps in Episode 13. Yet I still appreciate that episode because it puts a different perspective, or a more enhanced understanding of what we see in Episode 13. Likewise, I really like the epilogues at the end of every episode — they are insightful, and sometimes even explain certain behaviour in the previous episode, or simply just to add humour. For example, Song Yi's dad acted like he knew who she was talking about right in Episode 15, and the epilogue showed us the Meet-The-Parents session that Min Joon has with her father. It was sweet and lovely, right down to the line "I like her very much." Ooh:') And that kiss at the end of Episode 15 was really sweet with all the lights (I didn't really …

First kisses

This is not really a drama-related post but just a personal reflection thing. So…I've been quite interested in this topic and have been asking for some opinions on What do you consider to be a first kiss. Here are some stories that I've collected/heard: An accidental first kiss when the girl wishes to peck the guy on the cheek but the guy unintentionally (or so we think) turns his face A promise that was fulfilled when the couple reached their second month anniversary A slow, intentional descent onto the lips when the couple was alone in the girl's study room A first kiss lost (given?) after a few dates with a nice boy I've only been asking really close friends so of course I don't have that many anecdotes. But even as I read online and ponder upon the depiction of first kisses in dramas, there seems to be varied opinions as to what a first kiss entails. For the more liberal, first kiss is just something sweet and perhaps non-consequential. Nothing big about it. For …

Sorry

I’ve been sooo busy trying to my life to the fullest that I don’t have much me-time, which is quite ironic and regrettable. Haven’t gotten the chance to watch the latest episodes of You Who Came From The Stars and also Pretty Little Liars *gasp* haha. Anyway, I have a few posts in mind that I would love to share with you guys(: So till then, here’s just an update that I’m still around!   Hope everyone has been well^^   <3thoughtsramble Posted via LiveJournal app for Android.

You who came from the stars Part lll

Hahaha what I'm best at after being in love with a show, hope this didn't clog up your page! stalked from Facebook and Tudou, these aren't my photos of course. The first two photos ahhh hahaha they simply sizzle on my screen. I found out Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun have co-stared in Thieves before, maybe I should give that movie a shot! And then the next two (this greatly reminds me of post Moon syndromes, I distinctly remember that my page was filled with Kim Soo Hyun's face) hehe. Then some behind the scenes! I can't wait for the next two episodes to come out. <3thoughtsramble
