Drama Recommendations – Doctor Who [BBC Series 2005-ongoing Review]

Doctor_Who_Poster_by_darthedak

“Doctor… Doctor Who?” These are my most favorite words and I repeat them around like a mantra every now and then when I’m possessed by the Doctor Who spirit!

To be honest, this is the kind of series that I would never have approached under normal circumstances. My first reaction is always that I run away from any such series-Sci-fi, aliens, time travel are so not my cup of tea. But thankfully, at one point of time I was so bored that I decided to test the waters of Doctor Who. After all, the IMDB ratings were good and I liked the poster that was displayed there. And so I put the series on download and kept my fingers crossed.

Drama Recommendations – The Princess Man [Review]

Princess Man

I caught this drama a while back while studying. It acted as the perfect buffer from the continuous drag of books and data and while I was expecting it to be good because of people’s recommendations to- that included Raine from Raine’s Dichotomy, I didn’t expect it to blow me away the way it did. Yes, it had some major flaws and glaring discrepancies in its story, but what it had and delivered, left me floored! While I already loved Moon Chae Won, this drama made me fall head over heels for her once again! This series is well-acted, well written and moreover, it’s thought provoking and that is something not every series can do! *SALUTE*

A Werewolf Boy – Movie Review :]

a_werewolf_boy

Werewolf boy, or as the Korean title goes 늑대소년 is a truly wonderful and heartwarming story of love, coming of age and in some aspects, fantasy. I downloaded the movie just for one reason-Song Joong Ki, and expected to have a good time watching but was so pleasantly surprised when I ended up glued and hooked to the screen for two hours straight! And needless to say, I watched it again right after finishing it. It’s now a part of my collection, going to be stored in my hard drive for a long time now.

So Eun Oh finally gets true to his feelings but Arang, facing the reality of their separation more keenly than ever is unwilling to respond even though her own heart mirrors his.

Finally the master begins to see the world with eyes that do not simply watch and ignore. As a character, we see leaps in Eun Oh and ones that totally make you love him even more.

Arang and the Magistrate Episode 11 & 12 Highlights

Sorry for the late post guys but I actually saw the episodes today-Yup, a whole week later on the day that the new episode is airing! Things have been crazy on my end, but in a good sense because I became an aunt last weekend and hence was unable to get to anything at all! Even now, I’m swamped with studying and babysitting so I cannot promise the next recaps will be out on time or even out. I’ve not made a final decision yet-I love Arang and have loved recapping it so I want to continue but let’s see which way the tide blows!

Hopefully, Episode 9’ll be up soon too (Think: hopefully tomorrow!). Episode 8 might not be up soon though or for some time yet but I’ll update once something is worked out! Till then, enjoy the recap!

Gaksital aka Bridal Mask Episode 28 [Final] Recap

And here it is. Time to say Goodbye to Gaksital! I don’t wanna! I can’t believe we’ve crossed 28 episodes so fast. The ratings once again passed it’s precedent to end at 22.9 and as always, the episode was packed with all the right elements. It’s like an end that symbolizes another beginning and in the life of Lee Kang To and Gaksital, it was truly befitting! I love the shot above-it depicts the essence of Kang To’s life so well!

Gaksital aka Bridal Mask Episode 27 Recap

Gaksital has come to avenge his personal vendetta against Kimura Taro and to help the cause of his comrades as well. Shunji finally faces Kang To once more but as always, their past and their feelings are too much for wither to ignore and neither of the two can truly bring themselves to deliver the final blow. In many aspects, Shunji is the hero of this episode as he surprises and stuns you when you thought that day might never come. He still may not be redeemable, but he’s not too far gone either! One wonders if this really is the happy ending for our long suffering hero or is this just the calm before the actual storm? Is there really no way for a freedom fighter to find happiness along with a cause? Must Kang To and Dan lose their everything-and each other for the sake of their cause?
