Why I dropped The Producers

*Disclaimer: I’m writing this from a pure viewer’s point of view and I didn’t finish the drama, so my thoughts are only pertaining to the episodes that I’ve watched. Don’t get upset with me but feel free to leave a comment if you disagree!(: I didn’t finish this drama, although I persisted till Episode…9? I can’t even remember.

The Producers and small updates

Life in reality has overtaken my virtual life for a good three weeks! Nevertheless, I’ve been trying to keep up with the dramas – What I’ve watched thus far: The Producers: I’m really not feeling this show, and I doubt I will ever end up recapping it (although we still have 4 episodes to go, so anything can change!) I like Kim Soo Hyun and I admire his acting, but I don’t really like the number of close-ups. Yes this guy can act with his eyes, but sometimes, the close-ups aren’t used in the most apt and poignant ways and it kinda spoils the times when they are used nicely. Additionally, I’m totally shipping Cindy-Seung Chan so I will be rather disappointed (as a fangirl) if this couple doesn’t work out because Seung Chan ends up with Ye Jin! That being said, I like how each character is developing holistically because of another character. It’s a very gentle love rectangle where I’m actually alright if they all don’t end up with each other (I just don’t really …

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.

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

You who came from the stars Part ll

I finished the existing 8 episodes and I really really like this show! I get so annoyed sometimes because I stream this drama online, and the subs are just horrible. I sound like an ungrateful brat but it really grates my nerves when they miss out subtitles for an entire chunk (oh, and even worse the crime when they did it during Min Joon's lines haha). Nevertheless, with the help of recaps and other streaming sites (which I don't like as much due to the ad pop ups), I manage to finish the show and I love it. Just some of my thoughts, not written in a very coherent progression: I read somewhere previously that girls like their guys to be brooding and cool. While this statement remains debatable in reality, I suppose it holds some truth in our dramaland. And especially so when it comes to Min Joon because I just love how cool and in control he is. Then I started thinking about why I like Kim Soo Hyun's character so much. Granted, …

You who came from the stars

I love it!! Well Kim Soo Hyun was a big yes for me, having loved all of his shows so far. I was very happy to learn that Yoo In Na was acting here. Even though she will be slightly evil, but I think her role is a very dimensional and grey one which you can hardly just label her as a 'good' or 'bad' character. So far I'm on Episode 4 and enjoying every bit of it. The flashbacks are done tastefully and reveal enough without being draggy (cos flashbacks are always draggy). I shall finish the rest of the episodes in a jiffy haha. <3thoughtsramble

Secretly Greatly

Just caught the movie and I must say it has left a deep impression on me. It started off with lots of comedy, and often bordered on fan service, especially when Lee Hyun Woo turned up all cute and disguised as a high school student. It did have dark undertones, when Kim Soo Hyun/Dong Gu often writes letters to his mum back in North Korea and you just get a hint that this is a relationship that might never be reunited again. I don't want to say too much in case I spoil it for anyone, but let's just say it ain't all action and comedy. I really love the acting here, especially Kim Soo Hyun's. He alternates between the village idiot and his identity as a spy without a hitch — all sane and serious while talking to his comrades, a customer comes and bam, Dong Gu the idiot takes over. It's good and it reinforces what I've said on one of those Moon That Embraces The Sun recaps, that Kim Soo Hyun is …

Kim Soo Hyun’s and Han Ga In’s birthdays

I swear I'm on a roll.  Hyung Sun dabbing cake on a very cute Hwon's face I shall be immature and whine that I will like to have two good looking guys sing a birthday song for me too.  And I know I got into this a little late, but well, better late than never — I think I'm beginning to like Kim Soo Hyun a lot:DD  <3thoughtsrambletaken from,
