HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I’m so glad it’s friday, I feel like a walking machine these past two weeks. Good thing my contract work for the summer will be over in two weeks so I can resume my normal work hours instead of these long shifts back to back to back…
Adulthood is hard. Enjoy your kiddiehood, my little friends. >.<”
Hohoh. If you’re gonna be torn, might as well be torn between two very good-looking men. Deng Jia Jia is pretty lucky when it comes to being involved in love triangle. She was romancing William Chan and Ma Tian Yu in Fate Leads To Happiness and now she got herself in another tangle of love with Korean actor Joo Won (Bridal Mask) and Qiao Zhen Yu in Love Express (爱情也包邮). The story follows our humble heroine as she gets married to the man of her dreams (Qiao) and later discovers his affair with another woman (*ahumfriend*). Pregnant and cheated, she insists on a divorce and raises her son on her own. A gentle and kind man (Joo) enters her life then and encourages her to pursue a career in bakery. With success and a new love within reach, her ex-husband re-enters the picture, after figuring out he was trapped in a snake’s trick years ago. Oh really? How nice of ya cheater!!
Formerly known as Passion Heaven and Summer Tears in Paradise, it is now called Sweet Sixteen and is based on a novel (夏有乔木，雅望天堂) written by Zi Yue about the complicated romance between one woman and three men. One man is enough problem, and she has three?! It’s a joint production between China and Korea and is being directed by Jo Jin Kyu (My Wife Is a Gangster, Man on the Edge). I read some spoilers and Sweet Sixteen is not what I would call the movie… here we go..
Darn it! What are casting directors ON these days? I wanted to see Moon and Joo do a drama together. I know people complain saying that she’s small BUT who’s to say dangerous things only come in large packages? If not Moon, I was hoping for quirky actress Im Joo Eun. Sigh, I can only be positive and hope that sparks be seen between Choi Kang Hee and youngin Joo Won. And then there’s Yoo Seung Ho to rival Micky Yoochun for Yoon Eun Hye‘s affection in I Miss You. Pretty but odd.
Rant aside, have some pretty spreads of Miss Moon and Joo in the November issue of Cosmo.
Bridal Mask was never a romance, that part I understood from the very beginning. It’s just a small, but very lovely and colorful part of the forest, bringing life and meaning to our lost heroes. The ending scene was awesome, true to the spirit of patriotism and the fight for independence of a country. A lot of deaths in the finale, as expected, but with death comes a new generation of fighters, and the theme of patience and bravery continue as the people struggle, fight, and die to protect the grounds they live on.
Upset. The blue screen of death destroyed my highlights for episode 5 & 6. And I didn’t save a copy. T____T So you guys bear with me this week, as I’m going to be posting screen shots and thoughts for these two episodes only. No highlights. 🙁
