Please excuse me for being MIA! Can you believe that this is only my third post of the year!? Thank you to those of you who are still around and reading what I write! You guys are seriously so amazing and what keeps me motivated and passionate about writing! I’ve been a busy busy busy bee this year trying to piece together life, to work out what is it that I want to chase after and sometimes real life just gets in the way. This year has been a hectic year and although I might not have achieved everything that I had wanted at the start of the year, I am a true believer that when one door closes, another will open. Everything happens for a reason and at the end of the day we can’t change the past, but we can change the future! 2018 will be sure to be one crazy year for me and I can’t wait to see what the ahead year holds.

2016 was a great year and I loved every moment of it! But I can’t believe that it flew by just like that! 2016 was a big year for me! I have learnt so much and met so many amazing people! 2016 was full of challenges, just like 2015, but going through these challenges has helped me to become a better person. I was quite busy this year and I found that as you grow older, you become more and more busy in life. I still, however, managed to fit in some drama-watching in my life, ehehe. The year start off quite slow with not much dramas attracting my attention. The middle half of the year was when my attention start to pique up but it wasn’t until the end of the year that I found numerous dramas calling for me. There were some amazing dramas but at the same time there were some not-so-amazing dramas but overall, I am quite happy with what I watched. This end-of-year drama review is late, but I finally finished it! Continue reading
Wow, what a year 2015 has been! I can’t believe that another has just flew by with a blink of an eye. 2015 was a very important year for me, taking some of the biggest steps in my life and embarking on wonderful adventures. I have learnt so much in 2015 about myself and beyond that I would never have thought would have been possible. 2015 was full of challenges and while challenges they were, they were challenges that has helped to shape me into the person that I am today. I found myself quite busy in 2015 with various commitments consuming most of my time leaving me not much time to spare for dramaing. Surprisingly, I watched a similar amount of dramas as I did in 2014 butI found myself being a lot more picky with what I chose to watch. I started the year quite slow with drama-watching as there was not much dramas that called for my attention to watch them. Then the year-end came around and there were a number of dramas that all wanted my attention at the same time. It has been especially hard for me to catch up on my current dramas as I am currently in Shanghai where the internet hasn’t been so great and that added on with my current commitment has made drama-watching less of a priority. Nonetheless, it has been a very eventful drama year and I am quite happy with my drama choices. This end-of-year drama review is late but it’s finally here! Better late than never, right?

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.

Phew! Made it on time!
End of year drama reviews are a great way to look back on the year of dramas that was but it is such a pain to write, consisting my me racking my brain remembering the drama and finding the write words to express myself. Writing is no easy task but I write and continue to write because I enjoy doing so. It’s a tedious and meticulous task but it’s a worthwhile one that I have come to appreciate from other bloggers alike. It’s such a nice way to wrap up the year as we head for the festive season as well as look forward to a new drama year. I can’t believe Christmas is just nearing the corner! There were some great dramas this year and that in it of itself is a great Christmas present!
This year was a very busy and time-consuming one for me, with most of my time spent on studying and dramaing being pushed to the backseat. As such, I have been more selective in the dramas that I saw this year. Most of the dramas that I saw this year came from marathoning earlier this month when I finally had a break from studying and it feels really good to be able to just sit and drama and drama and drama without having any worries! Although I only managed to see a few dramas, I did hear a lot of talk about this year’s dramas so I wasn’t entirely kept out of the loop. There were some good, some bad and some which were just plain horrible. But I enjoyed most of the dramas that I picked to watch and that makes me happy because there is nothing more satisfying than to be able to engross yourself in a drama that it is a hit from start to finish.

I cannot believe that the year is coming to an end already! It feels like it was only just the start of 2013! Oh, how time flies! It just makes you look back and appreciate all the goodness that has come out of this year. It comes to the time for an end of year review and I really do appreciate the goodness that dramaland has given this year.
2013 has been one drama year for me (every year is a drama year for me!), though it was definitely much slower than 2012. I was actually quite slack with my drama watching for the first half of the year and only began to intensely drama during the second half of the year. With a heavier school load, I had no choice but to lighten up on my drama watching and this also meant choosing wisely with what I wanted to watch, which didn’t work out quite so well with some drama choices. But I did manage to do a lot of live-watching this year, which is something that I am very proud of. I also managed to watch a 73 ep drama, which is another thing which I am very proud of. I looked back at my 2012 End of Year Drama Review where I said that one of my resolutions for this year was to watch more dramas outside of hk-dramas but I don’t think I accomplished that. Anyhoo, I’ll just blame this on school which, really, is just an excuse to make me feel better of not achieving my goal.
There were quite a number of misses rather than hits this year which is quite disappointing but there were also a number of great hits. I didn’t get to see all the dramas that I wanted to see this year but I can always catch-up on it once I find some time in life. However, in generally, I think this year was quite a miss in terms of dramas. The reason why I was quite slack in terms of drama watching for the first half of the year was that there was any dramas that called out for me to watch it and furthermore, I have read reviews which have not been so positive about those dramas. It was during this half of the year that the dramaland picked up its game, especially in the k-drama verse.
I am going to have an even heavier school load next year which means less drama time for me but it won’t stop me from dramaing! Obviously school will be my priority but nothing is going to keep me away from dramas and blogging!
For this review, I am rating all of these dramas together for this year so the ratings will vary to the ratings on my ratings page. The ratings will be out of 5 stars. Continue reading
kind of behind in getting out end of year posts! I need better time management for next year!
For those of you who are connected my blog for quite a while now would know that out of out the dramas that I watch, it is Hong Kong dramas which I frequent. This isn’t because I enjoy it more than dramas from other countries (which is certainly not the case) but because I grew up watching HK dramas. Furthermore, I always have HK dramas physically available on hand whereas for the other dramas, I have to go and search for it.
It is obvious that the quality of TVB dramas is going downhill, but nonetheless, I still continue watch HK dramas. 2013 was a very disappointing year for HK dramas with no dramas standing out of the crowd no achieving high ratings. Regardless of all this, for those of you who watch HK dramas, I would like to know which were favourite dramas of 2013. Please take an opportunity to vote below and comment which were your favourite and least favourite series of 2013! (: I look forward to hearing from you!
Oh, please vote before you read my favourites for 2013, since it would influence your decision.Continue reading
As much as I hate to do so, but it is time to bid farewell! Ahnnyeong! It has been an amazing ride two both couples, and I do not regret spending 15 weeks on this. They were 15 weeks well spent. It pains me to have to bid farewell to WGMG; I have been there walking with both couples (mainly TaecGui) through their adventure of getting to know one another but now I have to face the sad reality of not being able to watch them every Saturday any more. It really has been one beautiful adventure and I loved every moment of it.
WGMG ended sweetly and every emotionally, not just for the couples but also for the viewers, which is inevitable considering how some have devoted 15 weeks towards it. I cried buckets for this because watching Taecyeon and Gui Gui part is something very painful. They have spent 3ish months warming to each other but they are forced to part. I have watched them face their difficulties and overcome them with each other by their side but now they have to revert back to their lives without one another. They have moved on and so I will have to learn to move on too. Continue reading
Reality does hit when it comes right at your face. There is only one more week left before we have to bid goodbye to seeing Taecyeon and Gui Gui on my screens and like Gui Gui, even I am growing emotional about it. I have been there watching them grow as a couple from the very beginning but now it is time when I have to let go. I am sad that I have to part with them but I know that I will have to move on. Together, they changed the rules and proved that two people coming from different cultural and language backgrounds can also create a happy and loving relationship.
I loved this ep for various reasons, mainly being that this is the second last ep and because of Gui Gui’s surprise for Taecyeon. What she did for him is sure to be something very memorable and touching. The memories that these two have created together will be something that they will remember forever. What she did for him really shows what they have been through and what what he means to her. They have been through a lot and everything that they have done together has helped one another to further discover themselves. Continue reading
At last WGMG has managed to to satisfy me in terms of the content delivered with each ep. I have been longing to see a new mission with each ep and now I am finally getting it, well that was the case for the this ep and last ep. Next ep will be a continuation of this ep so hopefully the last and final ep will be of a new mission and end with a bang! Yes, two eps. Isn’t it sad that WGMG is already reaching the end of its run? I am already going to miss seeing Taecyeon and Gui Gui on my screen each Saturday!
More dates like this must come! I loved both couple’s dates, they were both so sweet and meaningful! This is want I want to see more of; more of these heart-to-heart interactions between the couples. This was pure goodness with was filled with love and happiness. Both couples have opened themselves to one another, especially with how far TaecGui have progressed. Just watching their date this week in contrast to their initial meeting has showed how their 100 days of marriage has allowed to not only help each other to understand the other but also creating unforgettable memories for one another.
