Hope everyone had a great new year! My parents decided to spend New Year in California, far, far away from their kids and home. It was really quiet without my mom’s laughter. So I decided to watch a Korean drama…. The Crowned Clown with Yeo Jin Goo playing a crazy King who is paranoid of his enemies and so he finds a clown who looks exactly like himself and places him on the throne. Who would have thought Yeo Jin Goo will one day steals his own thunder. Lol. What a powerhouse actor he is and I sat there marathoning the first half of the series, shocked at the ending of episode 8!
Aww, the remake of Korean series Reply Me 1988 looks adorable! It’s officially known as Our Youth (我们的青春期). And it’s airing today (6/26). Lol. One of the things that stood out from the stills and trailers is the fact that we have equal number of boys and girls. I love it! Sisterhood and bromance! C’mon ladies, we need more dramas that depict the love and sacrifices us girls can make for and with each other too!
Am I dreaming?! I have time for a drama! Columbus day, thank-you! Great characters in that they are not what they appear to be at first. Some people need time to groove into your dance and show you their best side. Patience is a virtue! 😉
Looks good. The Thai Remake of Korean series You Who Came From the Stars has cast Matt Peeranee and Nadech Kugimiya as the leads and they had a costume fitting yesterday and both look amazing, especially Matt Peeranee, she’s feisty and those eyebrows – they slay. Filming is due to begin in October!
There are three series to the Answer Me franchise and yet they picked Answer Me 1988, perhaps the most infuriating one of the three to remake! Answer Me 1988 revolves around five friends and their families, growing up in the 1980s. Of course, the infamous husband-hunting crack factor of the whole franchise doesn’t miss its chance in here as well. Our heroine is the only girl of the group and finds herself stuck between the bromance of two other friends. Hehe.
Ah, Kim Hubby’s drama, You Who Came From the Stars, gets a Thai Adaptation, securing actor Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee in the leading roles. Interesting, to me the original is totally owned by Jun Ji Hyun so it will be a challenge for another actress to top or come close to her perfect performance as the famous starlet who lives next door to our male lead, a 400-year old cynical alien with super powers. I don’t know much about Thai dramaland and a quick google tells me both of the Thai actors are under 30! So young despite their more mature faces.
Wow. This is unexpected. I thought it would be, yunno, light and fluffy in the beginning and then heavy and angsty towards the end. Nope! No siree! The heaviest first four episodes (divided into 8 parts of 30min each, silly) ever. The running theme is this: “You have a dad?” *kills* “You have one too?” *stabs* “Who’s next?”
