Time for round three of my super fast movie reviews! Asian movies are so much fun, a perfect little dose of drama and K-Hotties and the stories that I love in the shows. Today we’ll be taking a quick look at Antique Bakery, Love On-Air, and Millionaire’s First Love.
Honestly, I had no idea what I was getting into when I picked this movie. The few brief descriptions that I read didn’t truly prepare me for the story as a whole. I knew it was about a bakery where four very attractive men worked, but that’s about it. Which means that I was wonderfully and pleasantly surprised by the story and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The characters were so much fun, well made, and remarkably intriguing. On top of that the story was unexpected. I thought it was going to be just a fluffy piece without much substance, but I was wrong. It was deep and full of substance. I would absolutely recommend this! I do believe that you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

I really enjoyed this movie despite myself. Even though throughout the entire show all I could think was how similar the story was to The Greatest Love. The lead actress is the former leader of a girl’s idol group who suddenly breaks up the group to protect a dear friend and member. Years later she becomes the hostess of a radio show and clashes with her new boss who is famous in the radio show world. Despite the similarities I really had a whole lot of fun with this movie. First, let’s take a moment o gush over Lee Kwang Soo. I love him so much and he was just utterly adorable in this! Not to mention the cameo by Kang Gary and Kim Jong Kook! That whole scene was hilarious! I was not prepared for the buckets of tears the new radio station wrenched from me, seriously the stories of our heroine’s show were so beautiful and bittersweet. All in all this was a great story, well done, with lovely acting, and a sweet ending.

I was utterly unprepared for what this movie turned out to be. Somehow I completely missed the words melodrama and tragedy in the description. I was just quickly browsing for a movie to watch while I updated some things on my blog and the description sounded adorable. Snarky and entitled chaebol discovers himself in a tiny little town and falls in love. It turned out to be so much more than that. I avoid anything sad and heartbreaking like the plague, I’m a happy ending girl all the way. But it was too late when I realized the sadness I had signed myself up for. By that time I was utterly invested in the story and couldn’t turn away. Now here I am a blubbering mess of tears, a thing that I do my best to avoid when picking out dramas and movies. Despite all of that I loved this movie. The story was phenomenal, the acting was good, and the love was beautiful. If you are up for a good cry I definitely recommend this one.
