A Wedding Invitation (Fen Shou He Yue - 分手合约)
103 min, Romance/Comedy/Drama
More than four months since my last asian movie waaahhh. I remember watching the trailer and being interested ever since but because it’s a relatively new movie, I couldn’t find it online anywhere :( But now it’s here and you can watch it with or without subs :D
To be honest, the plot isn’t anything innovative. There’s a contract that if they’re both single in 5 years, they’ll get married but oh no! One of them breaks their side of the contract and tada! we have our story. So it’s nothing new, in fact it has one of the most annoying common “twists” in the world BUT I still liked it though I can’t really pinpoint why.
I wished we saw a bit more of their relationship before the contract because I think that way we’d be more attached to the couple and root for the female lead more. Also after the twist, pleassee, everyone will know how the rest of the story will go but nonetheless it was a good watch.
Final Rating: 3.5/5. Nothing new but well done. Oooh, and also the mom is You Qing’s mom in In Time With You!
Cute couples are cute but 4th prince.. :( why you do this? Less than 10 episodes left until the end and I have a feeling the ending is going to be sad…
baaasically in love with Liu Shi Shi eep. About halfway through the series and it’s only been two days…the ending of episode 17 o_______o
Onwards to the second half of the series!
I Need Romance (Romaenseuka Pilyohae - 로맨스가 필요해)
Length: 16 episodes (~45min each)
So I’ve always heard of this drama every now and then but I never was that interested in actually watching it. In fact, I don’t even really remember how I ended up finding myself watching this drama but dayummm no regrets. But a little bit because I watched it during finals week. Because I’m feeling lazy (winter break started an hour ago for me :’)), I’ll just do a pros/cons list like I did for Love Around.
LOL I realized all my complaints were petty so don’t let them put you off. The pros are 234234x more worth mentioning.
Final Rating: 3.5/5. Refreshing/different than most kdramas :) Depicts relationships in a more realistic way than most kdramas do. If only the last four episodes were different I would’ve loved this drama even more but nonetheless a great drama that you should watch!
I can see where this is going and I’m not happy :( I like the character growth but noooo… I can see where the story is going and T_____T
Love Around (Zhen Ai Hei Bai Pie - 真愛黑白配)
Length: 21 episodes (~70 min each)
What a mistake to start this while school is still in session T_____T … If only I could’ve held back for Thanksgiving if not winter break gaah. Finals week after this weekend…
Because I have a lot…
Hope for Dating (Yeonaereul Gidaehae - 연애를 기대해)
Length: 2 episodes (~65 min each)
Yayay I finally found the time to watch something. This is supposedly a big deal because it has BoA as the leading lady but other than that I went into the drama pretty blind.
Tokyo Girl (Toukyou Shoujo - 東京少女)
98 min, Romance/Fantasy
Didn’t feel like doing anything productive, went through MDL’s top 100 movies list, found this. Main actress is also the lead in Otomen which I watched a couple months back.
I guess it’s cute. And there’s the sweet (and…
I’ll Teach You Love (Sarangeul Gareuchyeo Deurimnida - 사랑을 가르쳐 드립니다)
71 min, Romantic Comedy
So this is part of the MBC Sunday Best Theater drama special meaning each episode is it’s own independent story/cast/crew/everything except for the producer. I decided to count this as…
