Somehow, I can’t keep up with this drama-binging post, trying to make it bi-weekly but it always comes around as monthly. Lol. With august almost over, we are officially stepping out of the “hot summer” drama period and entering the cooling phase of the year. I finished Seven Day Queen as well; first Korean drama I finished this year! I put it off for like a whole month because I didn’t want to see such a well-acted, well-written, and well-directed drama come to an end. The last episode was beautiful, everyone has their deserved ending, especially the three main characters; they recognized their shortcomings and situation and did what was best – true to their characters and in line with the plot development. Props to Park Min Young‘s character because she made me realize that a badass heroine is not about wielding a sword; she fought with every fiber of her being, she took control of her fate, deciding every step of the way how she wanted to live her life.
The seamless transition between the three phases of our OTP undid me because it symbolizes their bittersweet relationship and how their strong commitment to each other transcends time and keeps them motivated to live until they are reunited.
What can I say…. I will binge-watch Princess Agents at the end. Lol. The other show I’m watching is Seven Day Queen, and while both shows are tragic, one is tragically messy (PA) the other is tragically compelling (7DQ), but of course, I’m in the minority with PA’s 35 Billion views+. LOL. I still can’t believe they did that to poor Seo No!! It was fitting but so unexpected for me. I thought he would last longer or at least be the one to stay with Chae Kyung after she’s deposed!
So what are you guys watching? Maybe I need some fluffy romance or just simply something unique!
Beauty And The Beast was a let down on my end, didn’t feel the magical sweep of the romance, top-notch graphics and animation though, and I do love the bantering of the various house objects – they, to me, brought magic to the film. On the other hand, Kong: Skull Island was an unexpected enjoyment. I came for Tom Hiddleston but stayed for Kong; what a surprising twist to put us humans as the bad guys. What I also didn’t anticipate was the beauty-and-the-beast element placed at the end. I swooned. Was surprised to see Jing Tian in the movie…..who was absolutely disposable for all points and purposes. Lol. And you know I adore her but here, she was just there.
