If You Loved Age of Youth Watch This Korean Movie

When the male voice singing “Time After Time” infiltrated the screen I knew I was in for a good movie. The song set the tone for what preceded. The film Sunny had the perfect balance of hilarity, sentiment, drama, and heart warm. The feel was very much like Age of Youth in terms of discussing edgier topics, along with the undying loyalty and love each girl showed each other.

It gave a Reply Series feel as well, as it dipped back and forth between the present and future, covering the lives of a group of tightknit girlfriends. Going through the comments section on DramaFever I saw its high praises and figured it was just what I needed.

If you just finished Age of Youth or the Reply Series and are looking for something with the same realistic coming of age value, give Sunny a try.

Favorite K-Pop Songs Released in Fall 2017

Fall marked the beginning of another hectic school year. This made the possibility of being stress-free that much harder. Well, if you consider stress having a million and one assignments to do and opting to do nothing at all as you lay in bed and imagine a better existence that doesn’t involve waking up to be lectured about the workings of 20th-century literature. Phew! Between that, I managed to listen to a good K-Pop song or two.

8 of My Favorite Descendants of the Sun Moments

This post is four months over due as it would be with constant procrastination coupled with a “busy” schedule. But hey, the intent is still there, so who cares, right? In light of the news of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s marriage, here’s a Descendants of the Sun post to reminisce about the drama that was all the rage in 2015.

As I’m sure many fans could relate, I never knew I could want to date a soldier so bad until I took the time to watch this drama that I had been putting off for months. I finally sat down after the hype had worn off and my good friends pestering me to watch it came to a halt. I’ve had nothing but positive things to say about this drama since then.

I can go on forever about all the moments that made me enjoy it so much, and so I decided to make a list of some of my favorite moments.

Summer is coming to a quick end, highlighted by the sounds of the screaming, kicking children in school courtyards all across the nation as they’re dragged by their hair into the dark abyss that is early morning wake ups and endless assignments until next year.

8 Things I Appreciate About Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

This post was ten episodes shy of being titled “Goblin, My Unpopular Opinion”, as when I watched the first few episodes of Goblin: The Lonely and Great God, it was pretty slow to me and I did not understand the hype. I found the female lead annoying, and somehow did not see the amazing charm of the male actors.

Thankfully I continued as I thought, this had to be one hell of a drama for it to do better than the 2016 hit drama that swept drama land not too long ago,  Descendants of the Sun. And after I watched the Goblin special and realized that this masterpiece was in fact created by Kim Eun Sook, the same woman that created Descendants of the Sun, I thought daebak! That makes so much sense as both dramas were legendary in their own respect.

There were many things that crossed my mind as I watched Goblin and took in the amazing effort and detail put in by the cast and crew, and I’m going to tell you exactly why this drama took me by surprise.

Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People—Things I Loved

I’ll be real, other than a promising plot one of the things that got me to watch Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People was how charismatic and cool I thought the main lead looked. And charismatic and cool he was. When I began watching Rebel I wasn’t really looking for a love story, but more of a story in which the underdog triumphs, and that I got.

Yoon Gyun Sang, along with the other impeccable actors of this drama kept me glued to the screen episode to episode.

Now let me let you in on all the things I could not get enough of in this drama, other than the charming leads half smirk that did all sorts of things to my heart.
