Lovelyz on Knowing Bros (Ask Us Anything) Ep 34

http://www.ondemandkorea.com/ask-us-anything-e34.html?lang=en

It’s an hour and a half long, but EEEEEEEEE THIS IS MY FAVORITE EVER LOVELYZ VARIETY APPEARANCE. ♥ It’s so much fun and everyone is hilarious!

The concept is that everyone there is classmates and can speak informally to each other, regardless of age/seniority. Lovelyz and the guys go on a retreat!

I love how much freedom the informal speech gives Lovelyz to be themselves and be more fearless than ever without worrying about repercussions ;u; Everybody is merciless with each other and extremely comfortable, so there’s plenty of teasing and shameless image-ruining all around AND IT’S GREAT. Silly and feisty Lovelyz is best!

Baby Soul is usually the most stiff (debatably most boring on variety?) but she’s let go of herself a bit here and showed off some really unexpected charms LOL! She was hilarioussss. She and Soogeun made such a fantastic pair.

Tbh I was squealing with laughter over and over during this episode. So much goodness!!! I wish that they were regulars ;A; I’ll probably rewatch this sometime.

Some highlights:

  • Sujeong plays guitar and sings Super Junior’s Bonamana while Heechul dances to it!!!! My two favorite groups aaaaa
  • BABY SOUL’S UNEXPECTED CHARM AND HILARITY. BABY SOUL WITH SOOGEUN
  • Yein’s touching moment reading the letter to her parents
  • Kei’s epic aegyo
  • “HA!”

140409 Weekly Idol – A Pink

Been a while since I’ve watched variety other than Running Man!! hehe

This further cements why I LOVE A PINK like crazy HAHAHA. A lot of people don’t realize just how hilarious they are because Naeun (who’s the most reserved member) is the one put on shows, but they do so well on variety.

In fact, they might be some of the most embarrassing female idols LOLOL….. I enjoyed it though! I love how it doesn’t feel like they’re faking their lovely cute “fairy” image, but it’s in fact just one side to them, and when they’re off stage, they have no problem bringing out their unruly and loud traits.

(Can I also mention that I love all of their outfits here?)

Includes:

  • A LOT of Bomi hilarity. Homequrl owned this :D
  • Their high note battle (see part 2 – 7:32 IT’S A MUST WATCH LOL) aka screeching like dolphins and pterodactyls
  • Awesome dancing (Bomi’s “hyperbulia” dance and taekwondo dance, Namjoo’s “sexy” dance)
  • … “rapping” LOL
  • Eunji singing Let It Go

A Pink & B1A4 – Love Song Medley (@ MBC Gayo Daejun 2013)

THIS IS SOOOOOO CUTE. One of the few collab stages for 2013’s gayo dajuns that I actually really enjoyed and wanted to rewatch over and over. I like that they paired A Pink and B1A4 who’re both very endearing, “innocent,” sweet-natured, and adorable groups.

Highlights for me:

  • EUNJI AND SANDEUL PLEASE SING TOGETHER MOOOOREE
  • Chorong and Jinyoung pairing is super cute because leaders! (They look comfortable holding hands; soooo cute)
  • CNU AND NAMJOO during “We Fell in Love” (3:36) are so lovely together! They match really well, look and sound good together, and seemed to have chemistry. ;v; They’re both pretty dorky, blunt, but cool people too.
  • One of the songs was H.O.T’s “Candy” though I reaalllyyy wish they could’ve featured Eunji in that because of Reply 1997.. ;3;
  • All the girls are super cute and they sound pretty good. ^^ (B1A4 always sounds good, so no surprise.)
  • Eunji at 0:33 fucking slayin’ errthang being the cool unnie HELL YEAH

Complaints:

  • I wish there could’ve been more of Gongchan. ;A; ..Only after rewatching did I realize that he DID have a part at 1:58… and he’s styled/dressed so much like Jinyoung that I got confused at times.
  • Baro had no parts….

Happy Together – “Good Doctor” Handsome Guy Special

Guests:
Joowon
Joo Sangwook
Kim Youngkwang
Jung Manshik

Eep, had to watch this since I’ve been really into the drama Good Doctor these days.

It’s pretty entertaining, though some parts have a tint of awkward/forced behavior. Jung Manshik says some hilarious things at times haha.

It’s nice to see actors as themselves and out of character! Joo Sangwook’s real personality is so much friendlier than his character’s, and he has a great laugh that you can’t help but be attracted to. Joowon is always great, though I wish he’d been able to show more of his manly charm since that’s been shoved under the rug since Good Doctor. He’s so much more charming than a lot of people think!

Running Man – Ep 87

http://www.kshownow.net/2012/03/running-man-episode-87-english-subs.html

Guest: Han Ga In

Okay, had to watch this episode since the guest was Han Ga In and the theme was the drama Moon that Embraces the Sun, which I’m currently loving despite its many flaws.

The premise of the game is to find the first loves!
And I kind of don’t understand.. how you can win the game if you’re not in the “first love” couple? Because if the purpose was to attain 5 nametags, then there’s no point in finding out who the first loves are. I DON’T GET IT.

But either way, I loved this episode. :D It was hilariously entertaining and really sweet and touching at parts. You don’t have to know the drama to enjoy this.

ALSO, they got kids to act as the “young version” of the RM cast and Han Ga In, which was TOOOOO TOO TOO ADORABLE. There were so many references. Mini!Gary’s “STRESS” was too cute.

Love Me Not (Movie)

http://www.viki.com/videos/174912v-love-me-not

At the start of That Winter, the Wind Blows, I found out that it was based off of a Japanese drama which had previously been adapted into a Korean movie in 2006. Since the movie starred Moon Geunyoung, I thought I’d check it out after finishing the drama.

Not gonna lie.
Seeing this movie makes me appreciate the drama more, even though it’s flawed and left much unanswered.

Pretty much everything about That Winter was more captivating than the movie, which was pretty bleak in general although maybe more realistic(?). That Winter added a lot of plot elements and fleshed out more characters that made it much more compelling and complex; but then it did have the “privilege” of being a drama. I can’t really blame the movie for not being able to include a lot, but it just… didn’t go deep enough and didn’t have much spark.

Some people felt that they couldn’t really “connect” or have much sympathy for the main characters in That Winter but .. I think there’s even less of a connection in the movie.

Moon Geunyoung was surprisingly pretty good! I didn’t expect her to play such a role since she was so young and I thought she didn’t break out of her candy girl/baby image until Cinderella’s Sister. I think she pulled off the role pretty well though the transition from cold to warm and loving was awkwardly fast. However, Song Hye Kyo was better at portraying both the blindness and this character imo.

And .. I think Jo In Sung beats the movie’s main protagonist in every category. So sorry. It was also hard to see the chemistry between the movie’s main couple, and especially with the notable age difference (15 years!!). It was awkward to watch.

130408 We Got Married (Global) – Ep 1

First of all. BLESS YOU MBC. MWAH MWAH MWAH MWAH♥

Thank you for:
1) uploading this episode onto your official youtube account, and
2) providing English subtitles.

Way to go!!!


Ok Taecyeon (2PM) x Gui Gui

THIS COUPLE IS WAY TOO CUTE… (Also, Gui Gui has way too many names LOL. Emma Wu?) I loved how natural they were with each other and how they were just always silly, fun, smiley, and energetic.

Listening to Taecyeon speak English was unexpectedly attractive, and Gui Gui’s Engrish is actually not too bad and it’s cute. There’s more of a language barrier here but it doesn’t seem like they’re having trouble with that seeing as how they’re both so expressive. They’re so hilarious ;u; I’m going to enjoy watching this couple a lot.


Lee Hongki (FT Island) x Fujii Mina

This couple was a lot more calm, shy, and awkward. Hopefully they’ll have lots of chemistry once they warm up to each other! I was really impressed by Fujii Mina’s Korean; she seems so surprisingly fluent. It doesn’t seem like they’ll have much trouble communicating. :’D ..It’s just that I don’t know if these two have much to communicate to each other.

Strong Heart – Ep 159

http://www.daebaksubs.com/2013/03/eng-strong-heart-ep-159-full.html

Guests include:
Park Shinhye
Yoon Siyoon
Kim Jihoon
Go Kyungpyo
Mir (MBLAQ)

Woooooo, it’s the Christmas special with the Flower Boy Next Door cast! I couldn’t resist watching this one after seeing its preview at the end of episode 158 and since I loved the drama. I highly recommend the drama if you haven’t seen it already. :’D

Overall a very lighthearted episode. Kim Jihoon is teased by everyone on set, Park Shinhye shows off even more of her perfection and prowess in sports, Yoon Siyoon demonstrates that his natural personality is surprisingly very different from the talkative and jumpy Enrique, and Shinhye and Jihoon’s offscreen chemistry is awesome.

Strong Heart – Ep 158

http://www.daebaksubs.com/2013/03/eng-strong-heart-ep-158-full.html

This episode is a continuation of episode 157.

Guests include:
Kim Sohyun (13yo child actress from I Miss You, Moon that Embraces the Sun)
Park Minha (6yo child actress)
Lee Sangyup (Secretary Park from Nice Guy)
Hye Park (model)
+ surprise visit from Hwang Minwoo (“Little Psy” aka dancing boy in Gangnam Style)

Regulars and interns include Boom, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk, Rainbow’s Jisook, and ZE:A’s Kwanghee.

TOO MANY CUTE CHILDREN… SOB. AND ONE OF MY TOP GIRLCRUSHES, THE LOVELY AND TALENTED KIM SOHYUN. (In her talk, she mentions Kim Yoojung and the kiss scene with Yeo Jingu.)

It’s not too spectacular of an episode but they made it worth it for me!

There were some continuity issues with the editing though; for example, they’d show a reaction from Sohyun without the clothespin in her hair, and then right after, she’s in the background with the clothespin in her hair. =w=;; Nice try, SBS.

Running Man – Ep 139

http://www.kshownow.net/2013/04/running-man-episode-139-english-subs.html

Guests:
Lee Yeonhee
Go Ara

I REALLY like the guests. Yeonhee and Ara are both gorgeous girls who are decently-esteemed actresses and definitely satisfy what the RM guys look forward to when there are female guests on the show. But the big difference is that instead of being a pretty decoration, THEY ACTUALLY TRY TO HELP. They were still a bit reserved and shy and are still kind of watching their images, but they ended up being more proactive than I expected them to be. And they were naturally cute at the same time! What’s not to like? 8D

Yeonhee was so great in dodgeball, Ara wasn’t afraid to be noisy and let loose, and both were rather competitive. And I swear, I was just fawning over how pretty they were the entire episode OTL.. It’s not fair HAHAHA.

About the episode though. It’s essentially a parody (kind of) of the melodrama That Winter, the Wind Blows which just ended last week. Having watched the drama myself, I enjoyed that the parody LOL. Basically, the cast first plays some games in couples and for the finale, they have to find the 2 people who are secretly “long-lost siblings that are in line for the inheritance of a large company.”

That Winter, the Wind Blows aka This Drama, Things with No Point Happened

[This post contains spoilers.]

I finished the melodrama That Winter, the Wind Blows. It was a beautiful drama that I, for whatever reason, really liked/enjoyed/was invested in even though it’s, well, a MELODRAMA and is out to cause you pain. It was intense; now I’m left wondering why I even put myself through all that.

Overall, I must say that it was a good drama though; it’s really mostly the ending that disappointed because it could have been SO MUCH MORE. I’m satisfied with all of the actors/actresses because they were brilliant and all such eye-candy. The cinematography for the most part was impressively done and aesthetically pleasing.

But the ending frustrates me so much. It may be ultimately a happy ending, but too much was left unanswered, unjustified, or unexplained. It seems like nothing that happened actually HAD to happen.. so what was the point?!

Some issues I have with this show:
(oh boy, here we go)

(more…)
