[Taiwan Movie Review] A Choo 打噴嚏 我的情敵是超人


As a boy who had grown up in an orphanage, EJ (Kai Ko) met Hsin-Hsin (Ariel Lin), the one girl who’d care and hold him close to heart. Blossoming into a deep, mutual affection, Hsin-Hsin became the single most cherished soul in EJ’s young heart. For some reason, whenever Hsin-Hsin thought of EJ, she couldn’t stop sneezing. As they grew up, Hsin-Hsin left the orphanage to work in the city. EJ on the other hand, swore to be “the bravest man” to earn Hsin-Hsin’s love, and devoted himself to become a boxer. Through his unyielding love for Hsin-Hsin, EJ became a legend in the boxing ring as the “man who could not be knocked-out”. Yet as the evil Dr.Cube schemed in the shadows, threatening Hsin-Hsin’s life with all sorts of dangers, EJ will soon learn that his true purpose lies not in becoming some superhero, but to be the one-and-only superman for the person he cares most in the world.





Finally, after 6 years of wait I can watch A Choo 打噴嚏 我的情敵是超人 in theatre! Been eagerly awaiting for this film to screen in Singapore after finish reading the novel. Sadly, this show has been delayed and postponed due to due to Kai Ko 柯震东 drug scandal.

The story-line is similar to the novel and definitely added more emotions to it. Imagine a guy who loves a girl so much that he is willing to do anything and everything to win her heart. Honestly, I admire his courage and perseverance to be a hero for her. 

A good romance story which includes superhero as part of the highlight. Honestly, it turn out amazingly well. Kudos to Kai Ko 柯震东 and Ariel Lin 林依晨 acting capabilities as they did well in their craft. Louis Koo special appearance certainly help to liven the show too!

[Thailand Drama Review] Who Are You เธอคนนั้น คือ ฉันอีกคน


After enduring vicious bullying, orphaned student, Mind, attempts to take her life in hopes of escaping her problems. Miraculously, she survives with the loss of all memory and wakes up with a new life as she takes on the identity of Meen. Mind and Meen couldn’t be more different, of course, besides the fact that they are identical twins. Living as Meen, Mind is granted the opportunity to meet Natee, a young swimming athlete who is Meen's close friend, and Gunkan, a mischievous handsome boy at the school who later comes to help her recover her lost memories. But, as time passes, unveiling the truth causes her to feel more pain than she had ever experienced.





Had just completed watching this Thailand drama - Who are you เธอคนนั้น คือ ฉันอีกคน. The story was adapted previously from a Korean original series “Who Are You: School 2015". Also, it has a similar plot to this series the lying game which I watched in year 2013. I enjoy watching school-life drama because it reminded me of those carefree days. 

The film has a smart plot with great suspense. At the same time, engaging even though it revolves only a few characters. It also urged aspiring individuals to be courageous and strive in pursuing their dreams as well. 

Imagine 2 twins with different characters and goal in life. One day, things change and took a turn in their lives. That's how the story got interesting and allow me to follow through the series.

Ji Hyung Joo is a detective in the violent crimes division. He used to be part of the traffic police but was promoted when he arrested a wanted criminal.

Had just completed watching this Korean drama - 365: Repeat the Year. The story was adapted from Japanese novel “Repeat". Decided to catch it because the synopsis attracted my attention.

The drama has a refreshing plot with good suspense. It revolved around the few characters with different purpose and agenda in life. On the other hand, never place your trust in people. At times, the one whom you trust dearly could betray you. In order to grasp the story, please follow each episode closely. The finale had an unexpected turn-out which made this already good drama, an exciting one.

The whole series may not seems logical but, trust me, watch it with an open mind to truly enjoy it!

It is the year 2020. The university reunion party brings three estranged best friends - Si Ya, Yun Xi and Zi Ying back to the campus once again. Besides retrieving the ‘memories’ stored in the time capsule 10 years ago, everyone is also eager to see Romeo, the person who caused their fallout years ago. However, he does not turn up. Yun Xi tries to get close to Si Ya and Zi Ying, in order to rekindle their friendship, resulting in a trip down memory lane.





Just finished watching this series - Best Friends Forever 致2020的我们 currently airing on Mewatch. This show certainly bring back nostalgic memories where it journey viewers through friendship and first love during schooling days. 

The characters each has its own traits and attitude towards school and relational life. It is actually comforting to also see individual with different personality accepting one another as friend. 

In life, there will be arguments and misunderstanding which cause unnecessary hurt to the people around. However, people do change and learn to cherish when their life turn upside down. This is how a person grow to be better isn't it?

Just realised that this drama was from wawa's production. No doubt, it was pretty good. I'm always a fan of their series and this one did not disappoint too. 

You may wish to watch the entire series here.

[Korean Drama Review] Tell Me What You Saw


"Tell Me What You Saw" is a suspense thriller about a genius profiler named Oh Hyun Jae who has lost everything, and a detective with photographic memory named Cha Soo Young who work together to track down a serial killer. Other members include, team leader Hwang Ha Young who sets the plan, ambitious investigation team member Choi Hyung Pil, and veteran detective Yang Man Soo.


Had just completed watching this Korean drama - Tell Me What You Saw. This series reminded me of Dr Frost which focus mainly on investigations. I enjoyed the progression of each episodes, which led me to follow it closely. It was that good as though I'm watching a movie.

The cases are carefully depicted with an unexpected twist. It got better and more interesting when the main characters are involved in it too. The "gathering of evidence and revealing of hidden truth" moment was definitely epic and kept me at the edge of my seat.

Kudos to Jang Hyuk, Choi Soo-young and Jin Seo-yeon acting capabilities. Nicely portrayed!

[Japanese Movie Review] Kaiji: Final Game


Based on best-selling manga. It's the year 2020, and just as the entire nation of Japan finishes playing host to the Tokyo Olympic games, the economy suddenly spirals downward at breakneck speed. Inflation soars, public safety crumbles, and the federal government finds itself on the verge of insolvency, rapidly transforming the national economy into one big underground labor camp. Kaiji is the epitome of a life turned ring. Treated like dirt, he makes do with a salary handed to him in a thin envelope. Struggling to decide whether he should spend his money on a beer, now rising to 1,000 yen per can, he is gradually filling with rage. Then he discovers that his former underground labor camp boss, Otsuki, who made a name for himself through an illegal gambling ring, has now risen to President of the powerful Teiai conglomerate. Otsuki induces Kaiji to take part in the "Tower of Babel," a game of luck invented as a diversion for cash-flush old tycoons, who give hope to the weak and destitute with a chance to get rich overnight. The wheels of fortune start to turn again for a born gambler like Kaiji. But is the future that awaits him to become a paradise or another form of hell? Tune in to the gambling show of the century as it returns to mesmerize a nation. 


After a long wait, Kaiji: Final Game is here! As a whole, the movie was decent. Initially, the plot seems promising but it turned out draggy in-between which was a pity. The suspense and thriller elements are ample but sadly not notable as before.

If you are expecting something similar to previous installment, this sequel may disappoint you because it wasn't as witty as before.

It had an unexpected twist towards the finale which was amusing, I never thought this will happen to the clever Kaiji. It definitely put a good end to this Japanese blockbuster movie!

[Taiwan Drama Review] Someday or One Day 想見你


Are you my imagination or illusion? If I could go through the time of the universe from 2019 to 1998, it's all because of you. 


Currently, I am watching this Taiwan drama - Someday or One Day 想見你. This ongoing drama airs every Sunday in Taiwan. In total, there are 13 episodes. Viewers can expect main cast such as Alice Ke 柯佳嬿, Greg Hsu 許光漢 and Patrick Shih 施柏宇.

I'm now at the 10th episode and the story turn out to be rather interesting. It has a good mix of romance, comedy, suspense and time-travel. While watching this series, it also trigger some nostalgic memories during high school. The casts showcase professionalism in their characters and acting capability with great chemistry. A pity that certain scenes may turn out slow.




I also enjoyed the 2 OSTs - 想見你想見你想見你 Miss You 3000 and Last Dance. The lyrics are meaningful with a great melody. Most importantly, they are relatable to the story. I never expect to have adore 伍佰 Wu Bai&China Blue Last Dance while watching this series. Not miss out, 八三夭 831 想見你想見你想見你 Miss You 3000


As I'm towards the finale, I'm really excited to find out what will happen next. Be it imagination or illusion, I would recommend it to you. Do binge watch soon!!

About Double Cleanse

A two-step cleansing ritual designed for scalp’s needs.

The scalp is different from the skin on the rest of the body: 
  • It has an abundance of blood vessels.
  • Higher density of hair follicles, sweat glands and sebaceous glands.
  • Scalp has its own distinctive microflora –when sebum and sweat accumulate, it creates an environment that harmful bacteria can thrive in.
  • These make the scalp prone to disorders such as oiliness, itchiness, dandruff, acnes and even hair loss. This is why proper cleansing to prevent unhealthy build-up of sebum, seat and dirt is crucial. Once the scalp is damaged, it’s hard to reverse.
PHS HAIRSCIENCE® advocates a preventive approach
