K-POP: NCT127 First Win

Congratulation to my children on their first win!!! You guys deserve it and the song is lit.

I swear some of their outfits make it look like they went to school, got in a fight, and got wrecked. Please don’t fight my children. They are still young and innocent (not sure about daddy Johnny though… Jeffrey is a bit iffy too).

While we’re at it, watch the music video and their dance practice video. Yuta flexing in the beginning always give me a mini myocardial infarction.

 

Drama Updates: The King Loves

Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 12.50.11 PM.png

I feel like I’ve been waiting for this drama for forever. My bae Im Yoona has been practicing seclusion up in the mountain for what seems like before human began walking on two legs. I’ll come out of my cave when she comes out of hers. She only made an appearance for a few events here and there; thank buddha for her birthday or I would’ve started hiking up that mountain myself (first I have to earn plane ticket money). Since there is hopefully only a month left until we finally meet Eun San I want to just post this to hype myself up. Hopefully a teaser will come out soon. Meanwhile, enjoy some pretty pictures of pretty people. Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 12.47.11 PM.png

Kpop: Tell Me It’s Okay

Screen Shot 2017-02-19 at 3.16.50 PM.png

Recently, I watched Hitmaker and was introduced to this beautiful song by Yong Jun-Hyung. Just listening to it makes me feel like things will be better and that I’m not the only one feeling this way. Luna’s voice really bring out the message of the song. I wished this song existed last year when I was starting toward an uncertain path in my life because I would’ve gain some strength from it.

In my earnest wish that more people will know about this amazing song, I’m going to share it here. I hope Yong Jun-Hyung will continue to do music for a long time and along with his B2ST members create more unforgettable and amazing songs.

Drama Updates: The K2 Ep.11-12

Loved episode 11 and 12! Episode 11 rating is 4.9% and episode 12 was 5.4%. There’s a mass protest going on in South Korea so I expected the rating to dropped but it remained consistent.

♦IRON LADY SPOILER EXPLOSION♦

I really enjoyed episode 11 because it had a perfect balance of action, politic, comedy, and romance. The episode breezes by and I was just happy by the end of it. I mean I would appreciate another lip locking session because there were so many perfect moments for it in episode 11 but noooo, why are you guy such a tease? I mean we don’t know what the heck is going on under that blanket, hehehe.

Park Kwan Soo seem so ignorant for someone who had gone overseas for political business dealings. I think the only explanation for that is his men are highly capable whereas Choi Yoo Jin is smart but her underlings are less than stellar. Thank goodness for his ignorance because as we all predicted, Je Ha still cannot pull the trigger, well at least not to kill another person.

I flinched when Jang Se Joon slapped Choi Yoo Jin because I’m sorry he had no right to hit her. Just the way he cowards back when she threatened his presidency said so much about his personality. She’s the one who planned everything, she sets the table and people just walk up to eat all of her handwork then blame her when the food doesn’t taste good. I would be mad too. I thought her monologue to Jang Se Joon at the end was great. I don’t know why but I flinch in fear whenever Choi Yoo Jin laugh out loud.

Finally, we get to see her evil and truly capable side. You never know what she’s thinking or what she has up her sleeves. I wanted her to take some action but just seeing her laying out the fields for him and all the different paths she could take show that she is a mastermind who had thought about many different possibilities. If one fails, there’s always something else she could do that is even worse. The way she confessed to no longer having any feelings for Jang Se Joon makes me think she has a crush on Je Ha now. Did you see how she bypass Anna and zoomed in on Je Ha’s picture, that is exactly what I would do if I liked somebody. At first I thought she was just attached to him because he’s someone she wishes to have in her life but the more she looks at him, I think she truly fell for him. Je Ha was the only one who had doubts and straight up asked about Anna’s mom. When the whole world is against you and the one person who even gives you a string of hope, no matter how small and flimsy that string is, you’re going to be grateful and hold on. But I think Je Ha will be her downfall because at the end of the day, Je Ha belongs to Anna.

Can we just talked about the bomb that Choi Yoo Jin dropped at the end of episode 12? It was great when all the jerks who were laughing got their mind thrown into a blender. I loved it! Choi Yoo Jin, you are finally doing something. I feel like Jang Se Joon somewhat expected it to happen because he did not look as surprise as I expected.

Anna went and took the drugs her uncle gave her. I don’t trust her uncle at all.  Anna honey, what did I say about taking drugs from strangers. If he is trying to keep everything a secret from the one person who is willing to sacrifice his life to save you and put you above everything else, do you think it is such a good idea to listen to him? But I think the more I watch, the more I understand why Anna’s character is as naive and as trusting as she is. If Anna was more deceitful and calculating then there would be no need of K2 active participation. If Anna was like Han Yeo Jin in Yongpal then K2 character would’ve been overshadowed like what happened to Yongpal. Anna needs Je Ha to help her, he’s the one who will move all the chest pieces to the appropriate spot and she just needs to say checkmate. Would it make Anna’s revenge less satisfying? Maybe, but I think Anna just wants to know the truth, she’s the last person I would expect to wish death upon another person. We may never say, “man, Anna’s so bad ass” or be in awe of her amazing plan but her character wasn’t written for that purpose so I think I am okay with Anna character trajectory because it is consistent with what we’ve seen of her so far.

Away from all the speculations, let’s take a moment and appreciate how good looking K2 is*swoon*. He is just working it, no wonder Anna wants to take his clothes off, hahaha.

Yoona is also looking amazing and fitting of her character as Anna. How can someone look utterly drop dead beautiful with their hair all over the place like that. I want to thank Dispatch for the amazing photos but I’m also scared out of my pants because it’s Dispatch.

Here’s some cute behind the scene. I have to be honest and say that I had heart palpation and could not bring myself to watch the kiss scene BTS. I think I was more excited for the BTS than I was for the actual kiss scene.

Drama Updates: The K2 Ep.9-10

Screen Shot 2016-10-22 at 9.26.36 PM.png

So so so many sweet Je Ha and Anna moment in episode 9 and 10. Episode 9 rating is 4.8% and episode 10 is 5.6%.

♦SPOILERS UNDER THE BLANKET♦

I didn’t particularly enjoyed episode 9 because although there was a lot of Anna and Je Ja moment, I felt like nothing happened in that episode. It feels lacking and honestly I was a bit mad at Anna for pulling that disappearing stint on Je Ha. Honey, you can do that to anybody but don’t do that to Je Ha. You want him to protect you but you keep on doing dangerous stuff without telling our bodyguard anything. How can he protect you properly?

Is Choi Yoo Jin suppose to be a competent antagonist? Honestly, so far I’ve seen her being humiliated way more than anybody in this drama.  We hear about her doing evil things all the time but I’ve never actually seen her do anything. Seriously, most of the time she either threatens people or her plans just fail. I’ve felt this before but Choi Yoo Jin underlings are so incompetent. The bodyguards in JSS are beaten repeatedly and way too dependent on that CCTV traffic feed. Choi Yoo Jin’s secretary is just pure crazy without a brain for actual plotting. The white hair guy who leads the bodyguard talks big but he has no actual skill. The only one who properly did anything was that chick who got Kwang Soo to back off for the first time. And what is up with our bad guys aversion to guns? I’ve seen so many fight scenes but most of the time they’re carrying batons or knife. Why are the bad guys trying to work so hard? Just get some guns and use your darn baton and knife as backup when you run out of bullets. I know they used sniper rifle to try and kill Anna but it doesn’t really count when nobody shot anybody. Choi Yoo Jin needs to get rid of everybody and find a new team.

Now going onto Choi Yoo Jin obsession with Je Ha. She wants him to be her friend and her strongest operative. She doesn’t have anybody who will tell it to her straight like Je Ha or is as competent as Je Ha. Je Ha doesn’t talk a lot but most his lines are to the point. He’s the voice of reason. When things doesn’t make sense to me, I feel like Je Ha will either explain it to me or ask the one question that will connect everything together. Choi Yoo Jin is envious of what Je Ha and Anna has. Yoo Jin said that she used to be an Anna but life happened. If Yoo Jin had someone like Je Ha around her, she probably would have never went off the deep end. Rather than hating Choi Yoo Jin for the things she did, I just feel pity for her. When you’re hurt and beaten down so badly, the only thing you can do is to retaliate in order to live. Honestly, that email is just an excuse, if she has high tech artificial intelligent behind her, how is finding an email that difficult? I know that in the end Choi Yoo Jin is wrong for the things she did but we didn’t live her life so we cannot sit on a pedestal and think that we’re better than her and that we would never do the same thing.

Remember when I asked the writer to make Anna a better foe for Choi Yoo Jin. I don’t think it’s going to happen. Anna is just too innocent and inexperience. Anna Banana, your uncle is not even related to you by blood and you barely know the guy, why would you trust him enough to drink the pills he gave you? Seriously, I almost smacked myself in the head when she even thought of drinking those pills. I don’t care what her uncle has done for her, if she was just even a little bit suspicious of the people around her, she would never consider drinking those pills. Look at her relationship with J4 now, when initially J4 drugged Anna without even a little bit of hesitation or remorse. That part of Anna’s personality defines her innocence and what makes it feels like it’ll be impossible for Anna to actually plot against Choi Yoo Jin. At this point, it feels like when it comes down it, like Je Ha, she won’t be able to pull the trigger.

I don’t understand how Je Ha is going to pull off his mission when he still has PTSD. How can he agree so easily when he knows he cannot pull the trigger? It’s just seem like a tragedy waiting to happen. It felt so ominous when Je Ha told Anna that if they stayed together they would die.

I don’t know why but episode 9 and 10 got me so worked up. It seems like the drama is moving along but nothing is happening. I had such high expectation for Choi Yoo Jin antagonist character, it just makes me mad that she’s not being as calculating and as evil as I would like. Is it bad of me to want her to succeed?

Anyway, no matter how worked up I got, I couldn’t help but smile like a doofus at Anna and Je Ha scene. There’s no way you can look at those two and not smile. I was mad at nothing happening and then those two just hypnotize me and then I forgot. Don’t you two try to distract me! Why is Choi Yoo Jin like that? Why are the bad guy not… oh my god they just kissed! Oh my god, what the freak is up with that blanket? Sweet holy matrimony…uh..what was I mad about again?

I thought this scene was so freaking cute and sweet. It almost gave me diabetes.

I know it was suppose to be a sad scene but I laughed so hard when I saw Anna caller ID photo.
