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.

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
It’s Okay, It’s Love is a quirky drama that I would describe has being weird and beautiful all in one. It was a very interesting drama to watch and I caught on after hearing many positive reviews in addition to wanting to see how it will tackle the theme of mental health. It sure gave this theme a lot of exposure because 2015 is set-up for an abundance of mental health based dramas. IOIL is a drama that depicts romance, friendship and family on top of psychiatry. It sounds like a lot going on for the one drama but there is a nice blend of the various elements which gives the drama a good balance. The theme of mental health is quite a raw one in k-dramas but IOIL has set the bars up high and watching was such a joyous adventure, especially seeing the various relationships develop and how the manifestation of schizophrenia to a person close at heart takes a toll on the relationships.

Soooo, prior to my exam, I had heard news of Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in TOKYO coming out this Spring but I was a little upset since it was going to air during my exam period! I loved the first season and was so ready to live-watch this season! I was ready to watch it right under exams and to my surprise, it was only the special Itazura na Kiss 2 ~ Love in OKINAWA that aired during my exam period and that the drama itself will start airing the 24th of November, so that means I will be able to live-watch it (yay!).

Having thoroughly enjoyed both the Taiwanese and Korean versions of Fated to Love You, I decided to write a comparison post comparing the two versions, since I think it will be fun to compare the different aspects and to highlight the similarities and differences between the two versions. I had an unbearably difficult time in deciding how to type of this post which included me backspacing everything that I wrote numerous times. Even right now I am still quite iffy how I should set about on this post! If you have any ideas on how to write these posts (took me ages to write this one!), you should definitely comment and let me know for any future posts! I’m not sure how this comparison post will turn out since I’ve never written one like this but here it is anyways. I hope you guys enjoy this post! If you saw both versions, please leave a comment below letting me know which version you liked better! Continue reading
Usually when I watch dramas, I go into it without much pre-knowledge except for maybe a few lines of the synopsis. I’m not really one for spoilers because I like being hit with the element of surprise so I usually restrain myself from reading or watching anything too spoiler-y. Maybe it is because I have seen the original but for this current airing of Fated To Love You, I have constantly been stalking forums and the official website for every single update about it. These four eps were intense to say the least. A looooot happened in a four eps and in real time, this all happened in a few mere weeks. Weeks, not months but weeks and when you think about it, the different relationships were bubbled and burnt at an uncontrollably fast pace. It’s the closing of one chapter for the fated story, but this is just the start of a new beginning. It will be fate that draws the OTP together once again because they are just fated and meant to be together. Continue reading
