Some rambling thoughts

Anyway, as you guys would have known, I've finished Healer just yesterday and am dying from drama blues. I was just thinking about my little nice cozy thoughtsramble where I meet great readers (shoutout to @usisblog for recommending Healer) and have long conversations with some of them. Sometimes, I stumble upon my old comments and I suddenly remember the constant presence of a certain reader at that certain period of time. If you guys are still reading, know that you will always have a special place in my heart, even though all I know is your username/letter of your name. I have no idea why, but I suddenly felt like writing a really long and heartfelt post, which I've not done in ages. For the past few days, I'm in this reminiscing mood and I cannot convey to you guys how much this website means to me. I'm always careful not to reveal too much of my personal information, which is why I don't have a self-introduction of my name and where I come from. …

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 …

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 …

Ratings

Has been something that is on my mind recently. Are ratings really that important, and are they a good reflection of the show's quality, or even the show's popularity? You might have guessed already, that this post is triggered by Alice in Wonder City. I really do think that it deserves a higher rating than it has right now (which is below 1 I think) — is it really comparable to Momo Love which suffered from the same ratings, and is it really much worse than other shows like Down With Love?  For a show's quality, the ratings can always be masked with the casts' popularity. You have a few hotshots, mediocre acting, passable script and you can survive with not-bad-ish ratings. But even a show's popularity can't be determined from ratings. Taiwan has a rather flawed system of installing track devices in a small number of televisions, so their percentages are all really based on a small population of people. Also, if you think about it, who controls the remote? Most often than not, …
