Dong-Joo <Uhm Tae Woong> is a quiet guy and a romanticist. Throughout his whole life he hasn’t worked very much. Dong-Joo lives with his younger sibling <Park Ki Woong> and only plan seems to win the lottery. One day, Dong-Joo is diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Song-Kyung <Jung Ryu Won> is a 28-year-old bank teller. She meticulously has a plan for everything. One day, she is suddenly she is diagnosed with a terminal illness. After that, Song-Kyung makes changes in her plans and prepares for her own funeral.

Dong-Joo then meets Song-Kyung who seems to be a polar opposite from him. Dong-Joo starts to plan out the rest of his life. Song-Kyung takes Dong-Joo out on a date.

 

This movie is too cute.! You won’t even feel that the two main leads are going to die.. Haha. It’s a lighter role for Uhm Tae Woong, doing those serious roles in Architecture 101 <not so> and Equator Man.. You will see dance and serenade his girl.. I haven’t seen him in 1N2D yet, so.. 😉

Jung Ryu Won has this “all-mighty” role.. Remember 2 Faces of My Girlfriend and History of The Salary Man? She’s the bossy type and this movie is not an exception.. 🙂

All in all, this movie will have you laughing one moment only to cry the next.. It is thoroughly enjoyable..

 

 

 

Ghost <유령 / Yoo Ryung>, also known as Phantom, is a 2012 Korean crime, action, investigation drama with 20 episodes which stars, So Ji SubLee Yeon Hee, Uhm Ki JoonChoi Daniel, and Kwak Do Won.

Synopsis

A drama based on a cyber investigation squad. Kim Woo-Hyun is the only son of a high ranking police officer. Woo-Hyun entered the police academy ranked first and graduated from the academy ranked first. As a detective, he then joins the cyber investigation department. Woo-Hyun then works to reveal the secrets of those that hide within the cyber world.

 

I freakin love this drama.. Not to exaggerate, but this is waaayyy too good.! 🙂 It had me on the edge the whole time.! You won’t even mind that this drama doesn’t have a romance, at all.

Though many was disappointed that So Ji Sub didn’t really portray Park Ki Young’s character.. It was Kim Woo Young all the way.. Yeah, it would be more enjoyable if we ever see the gullible part of So Ji Sub.. Haha. And he’s been doing serious roles in most of his dramas and movies.! I wanna see him in a more light roles..

As For Lee Yeon Hee.. Many are complaining that she can’t act, but I love her.. I’ve seen all of her dramas and movies and I’ve no complaints at all.. 🙂 I think she can do her part really well..

I love the twists that came about.. 🙂

 

Ghost

Previously known as “An Introduction to Architecture”, Architecture 101 is a 2012 melodrama Korean movie which stars Uhm Tae Woong, Han Ga In, Le Je Hoon, and MissA Suzy.

Synopsis:Seung Min (Uhm Tae Woong) is a 35-year-old architect with financial problems and a bad smoking habit. One day he is approached by a woman who claims to know him. She turns out to be Seo Yeon (Han Ga In), a friend he knew back in his university days when they both attended a class about architecture. She wants him to build her a house and he accepts. As the two start planning her dream home they reminisce about the past and how young Seung Min (Lee Je Hoon) met young Seo Yeon (Suzy from Miss A). Soon their lingering feelings start to resurface.

It’s like an all-star cast movie.. This film is quite predictable, but I enjoyed it.. There were moments where I was bored then asked myself, “What now?”..
First love really never dies..This film proved it.. And at the end of the day, you’ll never get what you really want.. One of those”sayang” movies.. Haha.
I still like this one, mainly because the casts did great.. They portray their roles perfectly.. Even Suzy improves her acting.. 🙂 There wasn’t any heavy or excitement moments, but the story that the writer wants to convey is sincere.. Try to watch it and see if you’ll enjoy this as much as I did.. 🙂
ETUDE OF MEMORY IS FREAKIN EPIC..!!! 😀

Only You (Always)

I’m sooooo in to So Ji Sub again after watching latest drama, Ghost / 유령 / Yoo Ryung, with my fave Lee Yeon Hee.. 🙂 So I downloaded and watch this one.. Only You..

Synopsis
A fatal love story centered on ex-boxer Chul-min (So Ji-sub) and telemarketer Jung-hwa (Han Hyo-joo). He has closed his heart to the world and she remains spirited despite slowly losing her vision. Eliminating the so-called silent style of long shots and long takes and appealing to soul and spirit, this could be deemed Song Il-gon’s declaration of transformation from an auteur director to a popular director. Those who were mesmerized by Song’s “Flower Island” and “The Magicians” may be somewhat disappointed. As suggested by the trite title, the movie is full of old clichés. But what makes it extraordinary despite its clichés is the director’s characteristic unconventional directing style and dramatic twists in detail that reveals moderation and omission. [Always] takes small steps towards the climax without excessive use of words and action. Chul-min’s climactic scene trumps the explosiveness of “Rough Cut”. The director also adds class to the film through the remarkable visuals and sound design, sensuous but not superficial. As a result, this film is distinct from overwhelmingly common melodramas and successfully emerges as an ‘uncommon common’ drama. So Ji-sub and Han Hyo-joo are perfect in their roles. The commercial expression as ‘So-joo couple’ is no exaggeration. (JEON Chanil)

It’s a predictable film, but I still LOOOOOOVE it.. I just love a guy would do anything for the sake of the gurl he loves.. I read that So Ji Sub took up boxing training for his role in this film, and you can really see all the effort he put in to prepare for this role. The choreography of the fighting is so well done, and looks completely natural.. It may be your typical Korean drama where the gurl gets helpless and here comes her knight with shining armor, but it’s still a must-watch~~ Haha. Freakin highly recommmended..!!!! ;D

English Translation:

Tune your ears in – can’t you hear the small whisper?
Wherever you hear it, I will be with you

Even if you’re far away, the wind calls you
This heart rush that only we know touches the end of the blue sky

Stay by my side, hold my hand
As you listen to the small whispers and what the wind says

We just need to fly to the sky
We can forget everything just for that moment
Because everything is the same color as the sky
Tears scatter and the wind takes it all away
Just for that moment, you and I can be together for sure

Even if you’re far away, the wind calls you
This heart rush that only we know touches the end of the blue sky

Don’t be afraid, don’t hide – hold my hand
As you listen to the small whispers and what the wind says

We just need to fly to the sky
We can forget everything just for that moment
Because everything is the same color as the sky
Tears scatter and the wind takes it all away
Just for that moment, you and I can be together for sure

How do I look? Do I seem at peace?
Whenever you want, fly higher like the clouds

Because everything is the same color as the sky
Tears scatter and the wind takes it all away
Just for that moment, you and I can be together for sure

~Aside from being biased, I simply love this song.. Haha. 😉 It’s a light, feel-good song..

I have only seen the first 2 episodes of  the drama and I can’t wait to finally see all episodes…!!!! I wanna watch how Lee Hyun woo acts as a “gay-guy”.. Haha. 😉

Both Tdrama and Jdorama had a very opposite ending.. I wonder how they will end this one.. ^^
