Oh no, this ep was all about relationship turmoils for our OTP pushing them to breaking point. The jealousy kicked in but resulting in a negative effect rather than a positive. The jealousy is pulling the OTP apart rather than bringing them closer together. Naoki is handling his jealousy totally opposite to what one expects. Instead of putting up a game against his love rival, he is distancing himself from his wife leaving her in all sorts of confusion and frustration. Poor Kotoko who is trying her very best to remain positive of the situation despite receiving the cold shoulder from her hubby but she can only do so much because a relationship can only work with participation from both parties but not both parties are willing to participate.

I was travelling this past week so this post is coming up later than intended, but at least it is here, right?
This ep was all about bringing Kotoko and Naoki closer together by first bringing them apart. They are still so young and still have uni life ahead of them. Never would anyone have thought they would end up as a couple (except for Mama), not even Kotoko herself and definitely not Naoki but they are together despite the people around them thinking that they are incompatible together. But even between themselves, there is the sense that they might be incompatible together. This is obviously the case for Kotoko who is working extremely hard to try and match her hubby’s standards while not so for Naoki who seems like he couldn’t care less for it. Continue reading
Sometimes dramas just creep up on you and that is exactly the case for Singles Villa. It was just a few months ago when I heard of casting and filming for Singles Villa and now it is ready to premiere tomorrow on Hunan Television. That’s actually a pretty fast time frame for Chinese dramas which usually don’t get an air-date until well after filming and post-production. Singles Villa is about a group of residents living together in rich condominium where falling in love with one another is strictly forbidden but of course they all go and break this rule because rules are meant to be broken.

It’s my third year blogging already!? Woaaaaahhhh, time flies! I can’t believe that I’ve hit my third year blogging already! Third year! Woaaaahhhhh, just give me a moment to comprehend this please. That’s just something very very very unbelievable. The third year here. Woah. I feel so old, ahaha! Here I am turning three while most bloggers are just hitting their first or second year. But age doesn’t matter, it never did, because age is just a number. This year was a very very hectic one for me. I watched fewer dramas than I previously did and I spent less time blogging. But despite that, I still received many love from you readers and that alone makes me so happy to blog. ^o^ Continue reading
As a sequel, Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in TOKYO has one of the best feeling of being a sequel. It has the same tone and captures the same essence that was Itazura na Kiss ~ Love in TOKYO and this is not something that can find in a lot of sequels. Most sequels then to have new casts, diverge from the storyline that was the prequel, add in unnecessary plotlines or be a combination of all. INK2 is different in that it does what a sequel is supposed to do – continue the story of the prequel, and that is something that I am loving so so so much about this second instalment.

Merry Christmas my beautiful readers! I hope you are all enjoying this festive season!
Sunday night drama Say Yes I Do Again (AKA I Do2 ) will be ending in a few weeks and that means a new drama is getting ready to take over the spot. SETTV Sunday night dramas have been quite a dud in recent years, particularly after Miss Rose. King Flower (AKA Substitute Princess OR Replacement Princess OR The Adventure Of King Flower) was a relative success but the drama went through some major changes during its run. Love Around was just plain boring and I actually sat around recapping it. Déjà Vu and Fall in Love with Me were both trainwreck makjang crazies and just kills brain cells. The currently airing SYIDA is draggy, tedious and falls into the boring category. None of these five dramas have managed to excite me but the upcoming drama Someone Like You (Chinese literal title: Hearing Happiness) is visually appealing! The drama itself might stink and truthfully, I am just going to close my eyes and hope for the best for this drama. At least the visuals are pleasing to look at. Continue reading
