Let just say I started to watch this because I miss that “overly dramatic drama act” by Satomi Ishihara. Ha!
Drama was about Etsuko (Ishihara) dreamt about working as an editor in a famous fashion house (Lassy) but ended as a proofreader at the same publishing company, fell in love at first sight with Yukito (Masaki Suda), while always bickering with one of the company book editor, Kaizuka (Munetaka Aoki) aka “octopus”.
Sure….Yukito is cute! But I ship octopus xoxoxo
We had been warned ahead that this drama might be one of the most melo drama of the year (It was their tagline. I kid you not). I cringed at the warning, but it got me hooked. Maybe it was Kim Haneul’s aura. Yup, I am a fan. Plus, Lee Sang Yoon had won my heart being melo since Angel Eyes. It’s ironic though, when a story that started with leads that are already married to others is usually not my cup of tea. But as story unfold, and plots built up, I some how starting to like it. Maybe writer-nim did wrote from unusual different perspective. I cheered for the lovely friendship between Soo Ah (Kim Haneul) and her bff, Mijin.
Plus, Kim Haneul’s chemistry with Lee Sang Yoon is no joke.
Personally, this is one of my favourite “Drama Title”. You know…when title name, story and plot really make sense *smirk*.
A big round of applause for a beautiful ending…
I used abbreviation for dearest Lee Jun Ki for title because I’m avoiding unnecessary spam on this page. We don’t want people flocking and roll-eye when reading about how Rae had spent the entire evening going for a shopping spree with Wang So *giggle*. Well, atleast Rae wished it was Wang So but it was the Running Man LJK (not that I’m complaining).
I decided to post the weird dreams Rae had so I can come back anytime, read it and smile at all the silly dreams.
The dreams differ from each other; some vividly remembered with story plot and all, some like a still screen shot here and there, and some are like a commercial break.
Yesterday’s dream with LJK was like commercial break.It’s like Rae and LJK were doing a promo on Shopping Spree… Probably because Rae just finished watching the finale episode of Shopping King Louie before napping… and LJK, could it be because of the SuperMoon effect, and on Monday some more?? *smirk*(longing for the MoonMoon Monday)
Yup, I just had to share this moment of the adorable Jo Jung Suk stuck with all six brides *smirk*.
I came across the latest remake of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (drama), I ended up finishing this in one go (5 episodes)…marathon style (thanks to Olympic *smirk*).
A time travel story with series of adaption. I just get to know that instead of three adaptations, it actually have four (minus the novel). The basic of the story plot was a girl gained the power to time travel. The way she used this supernatural power however differs, from amending the current situation to avoid an awkward situation to find an answer to a current situation.
As for this post topic above, I’m going to sum all three adaptations I had watched just because but without spoiling the fun. Let start the rambling with the latest one.
The drama. There’s Mihane Yoshiyama (Yuina Kuroshima), Shohuei and Goro as the three musketeers.
The love story. The friendship stirred up when one boy tried to confess his love while the other fell in love out of curiosty. Guess who Mihane chose?
The movie. A lovely quirky girl named Akari Yoshiyama (Riisa Naka) on a quest back to the past and met Ryota san.
The love story. Mom wanted to reminisce her first love and daughter decided to find the man only to found another love. Did mom’s first love founded?
The anime (movie). We have Makoto along with her two side kicks, Chiaki and Kousuke.
The love story. I love Chiaki *confessing*. hahahaha
Comparison of all three adaptation. I somehow have a feeling that the slight differences to the plot might influenced by the “WHAT IF” rules, which kind of fun.
I watched the anime (movie) version around 9 years ago and I did have a thought of “WHAT IF”…what if they were separated and try to find each other later? And the movie version almost gave the answer to that. And then, “WHAT IF” both guys actually fell in love with her? “WHAT IF” we want more detailed stories that happened? Hold and below, the drama fairies waved their wand and we have the latest version (the drama).
I still have a sour heart feeling towards the OTP of the latest version. Cheering for the second lead is my kind of thing lately *sigh*.
And if you have to know which version I favour more…
It’s the anime version. The journey to pursue happiness was more laid back and delivered in simplicity, which I adore.
And….Rae shouldn’t get entangled with a red haired-Chiaki *smirk*.
Warning: Not for those who wanted a “and they live happily ever after” ending.
July and August are awesome months this year. I have been addicted to these three ongoing dramas all in one go. It’s an almost neck to neck challenge for me on which i favour more.
It started with Doctor where we have the usually lovely romantic Park Shin Hye become all tough and the usually manly tough Kim Rae Won become all cheesy. However we don’t find any fault being at that.
Then came Uncontrolably Fond with one of my favourite kdrama writer, along with WooBin who we hope will get the girl this time.
When I thought it all goes well, W hit all the right note and alas…i lost the battle of “no more adding ongoing drama”.
Peace to you both dear July and August *wink*.
This is my current crack after healed from Healer witdrawal. Plus, i kinda miss Hyun Bin since he’s back from the army. Although body swaping is not new for Hyun Bin (Secret Garden), I think him with split personality is something I actually enjoyed, felt excited about and also now terrify at. Choosing ship would be confusing at first cos both ships have the same owner. Although as the drama progress, I found myself loving the cold and distressed guy more. Sure we all love a warmer person but with SeoJin, such pityful person like him is more easier to handle with.
The above scene is one of my favourite when truth was reveal and SeoJin again made a home run in my heart by actually letting HaNa learned the truth. Face it head on.
This drama presents a twist line of bad guy and I learn that the real truth sometime might be NOT THE WHOLE TRUTH. And easily planting memory into others? Gosh! What an awesome and terrifying ability TaeJoo have.
I think it had been a while since I watched any movie. I ended up with this one last week. Although the story setting supposed to be dark or gloomy, I found the story to be rather cute. Yeah, how could “waiting” for your death day to come would be more interesting to some eh. Anyway, thanks for the sweet ending.
Still in second lead boat, I found the main story of this drama is boring. Micky’s detective character is going on with the same flow, gripping to his first love, motivated by it *yawn*. He was one slow detective and I now think he’s not fit the job.
For a moment, in the second quarter of the show, there was an interesting thing happen. And it’s not because of Micky (Jung Woo) and Eun Hye (Soo Yeon/ Joy) so call love story. I like it when the script writer brought in an unsuspecting ahjumma to the story telling and it was actually fun till in ended.
Jade Seung Ho , he really pulled it all together. However… Given on how I know where this story will end (JW and SY) and how I actually want SY to stay with our Harry, I think Seung Ho suit as Harry more. Harry’s character filled with so much tensed and I really love how Seung Ho expressed and convey the feelings. And that’s including his frust little chuckle when he saw Soo Yeon picked a call from Jung Woo after staring somehow longly at her and Harry potrait.
At a little bit pass midway of this drama, I believed things will get more interesting since we will be dealing with more revealing of this family-tangled relationship. I like the idea of the drama but Rae really hopes script writer ease down a bit the tears and JW+SY story and more of the family cat fight
because Rae does not favor Micky. *scoff*
