Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 9.47.31 pm

:'( I am so sad because the recap I wrote for ep 7 didn’t save properly so everything I wrote disappeared! This is why this ep’s recap is out first.

There’s a saying that goes “timing is everything” and this has never been truer for both Won and Seo Hoo who were both just at the wrong place, wrong time so they missed out the opportunity to be together with Ha Na. For Won, he just never found the appropriate time to confess while for Seo Hoo, he was not there with her when she needed him most and because of that he crushed her heart. Won had 17 years to confess but could never muster the courage to do so. Seo Hoo had three years to find her, explain and apologise but never did so until now. For both these men, following their heart both comes down to timing. Now, they are given the opportunity to win her once and for all and timing will be the crucial deciding factor. Read more

The Time We Were Not In Love Episode 6 Recap

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 9.48.16 pmLove takes people on a journey, one that is full of self discoveries. It’s a journey that is very complex, not that it is ever simple to begin with, and for Won and Ha Na finding love has never been more complicated. Ha Na has never had much success in the field of love; just when she think she has got a good hold on love, she loses grip and it all comes crashing down beneath her eyes. It is no wonder she loses more and more confidence with each relationship. The guy who she almost walked down the aisle with has returned and ready to start anew with her but the question is whether she has the confidence to give their relationship another shot? Won will, regardless of her decision, remain by her side and catches if she falls, though he will definitely protect her from falling over like the protector he has been to her for the past 17 years.

The Time We Were Not In Love Episode 5 Recap

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 11.50.33 pmIt’s all about the ex-lover as Seo Hoo enters back into the game and is ready to fight for another chance to be with Ha Na. Won is not happy to see the jerk who once broke his best friend’s heart back in town and Seo Hoo’s appearance only pushes Won to realise deep down how he feels towards his best friends. It is becoming clearer and clearer that the feelings are no longer platonic, not that it ever was. For 17 years, he has been in love with her. He has witnessed every one of her past relationships just as she had with his. While Ha Na is still lost in her complicated love life, Won is not and is certain with his heart that counter to always telling Ha Na that he will never love her, he does in fact love her. But first he must get through that pesky ex of Ha Na’s before he can take her heart and one thing for certain is that Won will definitely put up a fight with Seo Hoo and that Seo Hoo will also put up a fair game.

My Opinion on When I See You Again: Episodes 3-6

17When I See You Again continues to be very light and fluffy, something that rests easy on my eyes. I have always been more of a rom-com kind of gal and as long as the drama is nice and fluffy enough, I will be sure to have some sort of liking towards it. WISYA is that kind of drama and continues to build up with lots of fluff which is just my cup of tea. These few eps gave the drama an overall backbone, something that the first two eps was a bit wobbly in doing and now is revving up the romance. It really set in ground the shaky beginning that was introduced in the first two eps. These few eps also firmly directed where the drama is to be headed. I think that’s really nice because the drama was quite slowly paced in the first two eps and took its time to settle down and into the main intention of the drama. Read more

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 9.22.20 amHa Na and Won may have been friends for 17 years but a friendship can all change in the spur of moment.

The Time We Were Not In Love Episode 1 Recap

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 12.45.20 am Everyone has been highly anticipating for the release of The Time We Were Not In Love both internationally and domestically and it has finally arrived. TTWWNIL (what a mouthful!) is the Korean remake of the critically acclaimed Taiwanese drama In Time With You which not only spawned a number of awards but also gained itself quite a niche audience, an audience that still keeps with them despite it being four years since it aired. Korean dramas getting remade by Taiwan is quite common but it is not that often that Taiwanese dramas cross the strait to get its own version in Korea which is one of the numerous reasons why TTWWNIL is so highly anticipated this year. With remakes, as they are based on being a remake, there is both pressure for it to be good and also the added pressure for it to live up to its cousin. That is my biggest worry for TTWWNIL and only time will tell whether it will float or sink. Read more

My Opinion on When I See You Again: First Impressions

When I See You AgainI love it when the holidays come because this means I can just sleep, eat and drama without any other worries in life. With more time on my hands, this means I can load myself with more dramas, which is just the perfect way to spend my semester break. One of those dramas on my current watching cycle is the current SETTV Sunday-night drama When I See You Again. Unlike its predecessor Someone Like You, which was a melo drama, SETTV has reverted back to its roots of rom-coms, something that is right up my alley. WISYA has all of the elements of a SETTV rom-com and while SETTV doesn’t necessarily always make the best dramas, its rom-coms are always light, fluffy and easy on the eyes, something that is much needed after studying intensely for the past semester. WISYA is a very typical SETTV kind of rom-com, set in a village environment with lots of cutesy interaction from the two leads. Read more

Show Luo Crushes Hearts as He is No Longer Single

1This confirmation is sure going to crush hearts because it crushed mines. Taiwanese singer-actor-emcee Show Luo is off the markets. I haven’t always liked Show. I first got to know Show as an actor when I saw him with Rainie Yang in the drama Hi, My Sweetheart. I then discovered him as a singer but it wasn’t until the past few years when I really got know him and his music style that I came to really like him. But today he broke my heart with news reporting that he is taken, and that lucky girl is internet celebrity Grace Chow who frequently gets compared to Angelababy, even referring to her as “Little Angelababy”.
