Parting Ways: Suki na Hito ga iru koto


This Review of Suki na Hito ga iru koto (A Girl & Three Sweethearts) Contains Spoilers

There is this strange need to finish dramas no matter what that in all my years of drama watching I haven’t been able to shake.  I do try to be a little picky when choosing a drama so that I can, hopefully, watch dramas that I will enjoy.  No matter how careful you are, there is really no controlling how you’ll enjoy dramas.  In my past years I haven’t watched many currently airing dramas, maybe 1 or 2 a year while they were airing.  So I am able to research and read reviews so that I can better understand the drama and what happens in it.  Which has helped me avoid dramas that I might drop.  This year I’ve watched 3 dramas as they have aired and currently watching 3 that are airing now.  So there aren’t any completed reviews for me to read to determine if I’ll want to watch the drama from beginning to end.  Which is the case with A Girl & Three Sweethearts, I watched this as it aired.

Episode 9

Ha Won wakes up in bed with Ja Yeong and then she remembers the night before!  The kisses!  She sneaks past a passed out Ji Woon outside of her room and heads to the bathroom and then starts to sigh happily as she remembers the kisses again.  Then scolds herself and as she has a mini freak out about the kisses she slips on the soap and knocks herself out.  Yoon Sung whisks her off to the ER and then calls to send the others home.  Ji Woon is remembering the kisses too and have his own mini freak out.  Hyun Min is having trouble dealing with the moment that he and Hye Ji shared.  Ha Won wakes up in the hospital and is shocked that she didn’t sleep through a week at least or lose her memories.  Yoon Sung has her transferred to the hospital in Seoul because she’s also sprained her ankle badly and needs a cast.  During the drive to Seoul, Ha Won teases Yoon Sung about not being able to hold his alcohol.  He kindly and bashfully asks her to forget that.  Then asks if she was drunk too.  She stutters and says she doesn’t remember anything which of course makes it obvious that something occurred.

Review: Love O2O


This Review of Love O2O Contains Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

Let me put this out there right away, I love this show.  Like a lot.  It is pure sparkling fluff, but I enjoyed every episodes of it!  This drama was a first for me in a few ways.  It was my first Chinese Drama.  I’ve watched some Chinese movies like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers, but never a drama.  It was also the first drama with more than twenty-five episodes.  Normally I shy away from dramas that are especially long as I’m afraid it will drag and I’ll lose interest.  It was also the first drama in a long time that I actively rearranged my schedule so that I could see the new episodes as soon as they were posted.

It has taken me a little while to get my thoughts in order for this review.  I’m not the most organized when it comes to notes for reviews, but I was especially disorganized with this one because I was spazzing with excitement each episode.  So please have patience with me and this rambling review!

Cinderella and Four Knights: Episodes 7 & 8


This Recap of Cinderella and Four Knights is full of Spoilers

Episode 7

The confession and rejection are filmed by the school cameras along with being live cast to the whole school.  Hye Ji and Ji Woon watch Ha Won and Hyun Min together, she’s upset yet again. I really want her to grow a backbone or grow at least a little.  She is such a static character caught in a really bad place mentally, her whole identity is based on her former relationship with Hyun Min.  Ha Won tells Hyun Min that he needs to think, really think about if he likes or not and how he treats his family and women in his life.  Hyun Min is very shook up over that.  Seo Woo is stuck at the school, the fangirls won’t let him leave.  He bluffs and says he sees CNBLUE!  I laughed a lot at that.  He gets away and Ha Won’s BFF, Hong Ja Yeong, yanks him into a room to hide from the hoard.  To get away they devise a plan, Seo Woo will wear Hong Ja Yeong’s uniform and run away.  This scene was flipping hilarious!  I ship these two so much!  I really hope they end up together in the end!

Can we just take a moment to bask in the utter adorableness of this show?  Seriously, if you haven’t been watching I truly suggest that you do!  I am having the best time with this show.  I hadn’t heard of the book or the drama until I read Amber KMuse’s post urging other people to join her watching this totally fantastic drama.  What a complete shame it would have been had I not taken the time to read Amber’s article!  I would have been oblivious to this drama and that would have been bad!  My life is better with this drama.  Ok, that might be a little much.  But seriously, this drama just makes my heart happy and I cannot help but smile and giggle while watching.  I suggest that you take a moment to read Amber’s post too, she’s read the novel as well and I think she’ll convince you to watch this too!
