[Korean Drama Review] Dark Hole

 

Dark Hole is about a group of survivors who have to fight for their lives against mutants that are created when humans breathe mysterious dark smoke from a sinkhole.


Recently, I've just finished watching the Korean drama - Dark Hole.

I thought that introductory was nicely developed with a mystery element that was suspenseful. The progression in each episodes led me to ponder and followed them closely as well. However, it's a pity that the entire story-line barely met my expectation. 

There are actually good intense and action moments, which kept me at the edge of my seat. Not to miss out, some emotional scenes that was beautifully presented too. It was carefully crafted, as though I am watching a movie.

Kudos to Lee Joon-Hyuk and Kim Ok-Vin acting capabilities. They definitely did well!

[Korean Drama Review] Mouse

 


A crazed serial killer’s ruthless murders have left the entire nation gripped with fear and chaos reigns. Justice-seeking rookie police officer, Jung Ba Reum, comes face to face with the killer. While he survives his dangerous encounter with the psychopath, Jung Ba Reum finds his life completely changing. A suspenseful story that asks the key question, “What if we could identify psychopaths in advance?"


Had just completed watching this Korean drama - Mouse

The development of its plot was well-thought with a mystery element that was suspenseful. A pity that it got draggy during the mid-episode. This drama got better and exciting on episode 15 where you start to see the main characters involved in the entire case. 

I've got to agree that the "gathering of evidence and revealing of hidden truth" moment was definitely epic and kept me at the edge of my seat. The finale turned out to be predictable but it put a good end to it.

Kudos to Lee Seung-Gi and Lee Hee-Jun acting capabilities. They definitely did well!

[Movie Review] My Love 你的婚礼

 
[Photo Credits: ent.ifeng.com]

My Love is a heart-warming film about a 15-year love story between Zhou Xiao Qi (Greg Hsu), a swimming student and You Yong Ci (Zhang Ruo Nan), a transfer student. In high school, Zhou Xiao Qi fell in love with You Yong Ci at first sight, only for her to leave suddenly without saying goodbye. 15 years later, they meet again. Will love be the same?


Watched My Love 你的婚礼 earlier on at GV Plaza.

This romance comedy film reminded me of nostalgic memories I had during high school. A show that was similar to You Are the Apple of My Eye 那些年,我們一起追的女孩 where it journey viewers through first love and youthful ambition. 

The show focused on the love story between the 2 leading characters - You Yong Ci 尤咏慈 & 周潇齐 Zhou Xiao Qi. It was nicely depicted with a compact story-line. The humorous and touching scenes are nicely injected as well.

Though both of them lost contact after You Yong Ci 尤咏慈 disappearance to another school, it was fate that allow them to crossed path each time. It was indeed heart-wrenching towards the finale, which totally reminded me of this quote -  "在错的时间遇到对的人". I suppose this pretty much sum up the show.

[Movie Review] Vanguard 急先锋

Covert security company Vanguard is the last hope of survival for an accountant after he is targeted by the world’s deadliest mercenary organization.


Watched Vanguard 急先锋 with Trois at Shaw Theatres Waterway Point.

The film is fast-paced and engaging along with many intense moment injected. It is a pity that the storyline itself lack originality and appear to be predictable. On the other hand, I enjoyed the nice visuals and explosive fight scenes presented. 

Kudos to Mu Qimiya 母其弥雅, Jackie Chan 成龙 and Yang Yang 杨洋 acting capabilities. They definitely did well in their craft. If you are into action-packed movie, I will recommend you to catch this in cinemas soon!

[Korean Drama Review] Flower of Evil


The drama is about a female detective learns about the dark past of her nearly perfect husband and tries to get to the bottom of the truth.


Had just completed watching this Korean drama - Flower Of Evil

The introductory was nicely developed with a mystery element that was captivating and suspenseful. Though a slow progression in its plot, the few cast whom had secret agenda actually made this already good drama, an interesting one. Kudos to both Moon Chae-won and Lee Joon-gi acting capabilities. They definitely did well!

The "gathering of evidence and revealing of hidden truth" moment was exciting which kept me at the edge of my seat too. The finale appear draggy and predictable to me. Oh well, I'm glad that it is a happy ending for both who had gone through so much together as a couple.

[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!

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.

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!
