“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”

In another dimension, the Devil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As “conquering the world” are the only skills the Devil King possesses – and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation – he must work as a part-time to pay for his living expenses.

I had a good laugh in this anime. It’s a supreme comedy and a short side of action. The energy flows through the entire episodes; at the beginning, seriousness took over, after its gone, the real fun begins.

What makes this show stand out is the strong characters which develop eventually. They are quite stupid, but not annoying, a certain mix of charm to see the lord of demons working as a part timer and protecting Tokyo along with his generals lucifer and Alciel who became a computer online addict and a domestic helper.

Should you watch it?  the hell yeah!

Verdict: 8/10

I am ALONE. I am STRONG.

Such a long weekend, she thought. While everybody is planning where to spend the holiday, she doesn’t have any plans at all. Nothing seems to interest her nowadays, everything is repetitive and boring. At times, her mind was being cranky that she have known to the same people as if no one is new, nothing is to be excited about, she feels that she’s been trapped to same traces and faces. This feeling is not new to her, it always comes and goes.

Two days passed, she never received any invitations from her friends. No one bothered also to organize a getaway, well, she was the one who usually does the arrangement and her friends will just go with her plans, so how can she wait? For once, she doesn’t want to take the lead, she just likes to follow the trail.

When she feels her body is throbbing from sleeping, she got up, took a bath and went out.  She can’t stand it anymore. She has to be thankful for the free day and good weather. She has to do things even when being alone, enjoy it and never expected anyone to give her delight.

She ended the day with a little gratifying. She was able to go out, wander around and dine alone. Well, eating by herself outside is a challenge to her. While everyone is sharing the food together, it makes her a little bit lonely that she has no one to share, as much as possible, she doesn’t dine alone in the public, takeout is her ultimate comfort zone. But that day, she made it without feeling isolated in the middle of the crowds.

She realized that not all the time you can rely on to anyone. They said friends are always there to cheer you up, but these friends have their own life too. They have their issues to be solved, and days to relish by their own, they have kids and husband to take care of, they have boyfriends to please, they have work to finish, and same with her, they might suffer the same tedium she felt and just waiting for something new to happen. The world is not just revolving around her.

So be strong when this moment comes, because no one can help you, but yourself.  There is nothing wrong to be alone sometimes, it is the chance you can date and hang out with our own because there are so much to discover, learn and to love.

STRONG WOMAN DO BONG SOON

Strong_Woman_Do_Bong-Soon-p2

This show is to be watched and enjoyed while being okay to overlook the plot flaws. In my K-drama land, as long as I enjoy it and pull me out from the real world, then I forgive the imperfections.

Do Bong-Soon (Park Bo-Young) and An Min-Hyuk (Park Hyung -Sik) made the show over the top of cuteness and loveliness. It was effortless to love them and join their journey to experience the romance, power and dark thrills rounded to their lives.

I wouldn’t deny I was hooked from episode 1 and I feel the Oof from my heart when it has ended. Actually, I don’t find the plot exceptional, heroine genres is far from unique, I suppose. But they nailed it. They got it all when they depict their characters and act seems so real. Park Bo Young acting is still excellent, and you’ll gonna love our gentle Park Hyung Sik polished charm of what truly man should behave when in love.

Enjoy the drama!

Verdict: 10/10

Torn between two lovers
Feeling like a fool
Loving both of you is breaking all the rules

THE BEAUTY INSIDE (K-movie)

Love has many faces. Would you be able to date somebody who changed appearance every day? Can you love enough?

Heropage-980x560_41

Furniture designer Woo-jin wakes up in a different body every day, regardless of age, gender and nationality. Sometimes he’s a man, a woman, old, young, or even a foreigner. He’s the same person on the inside, but on the outside, he’s always someone new. Looking at a different face in the mirror every morning is hard for him to get used to.

The only constant in his life is the girl he loves, Yi-soo, who knows his secret and loves him anyway. Each time he transforms, Woo-jin must figure out how to reunite with Yi-soo.

This movie is based on Every Day written by David Levithan.

This film shows a mystical element, but focus on the reality of what TRUE LOVE must be. The story is polished emotionally, inoffensive in any ways. You will wrestle with the protagonist heartaches, inner war struggles, undying fidelity, and submission. The story is an inspiration to all, it makes you think, it makes you judge between what shows on the outside and what is on the inside.

Apart from the plot is unique, you will appreciate various transitions of the actors hired to portray Woo-Jin. Character development is surprising and the twist will lurk you on your seat. The cinematography and Photography are stunning too. The acting is marvelous, it gives you chills and goose bumps.

Verdict: 10/10

NOTE TO SELF

Judge yourself. That is the most difficult thing of all. It is much more difficult to judge oneself than to judge others. If you succeed in judging yourself rightly, then you are indeed a man of true wisdom. – Little Prince

It’s one of the best quotes I have ever read in the book of Little Prince. From that moment, I knew these words will serve as a guide. Every day, I faced with diverse people with different opinions, cultures, beliefs, and even religions. Because of this, I may tend to judge people as if I know them deeper.

With this quote, it helps me to remember to judge myself first with honestly before seeing the fault of others. We are not allowed to trample others existence, but to understand them and to be understood.

I am not perfect. I judged other people. I never liked some of them and sometimes pretending to like them. I am not certainly a woman of true wisdom, but I can learn, control and can follow what is right and not.

CHIEF KIM (K-drama)

chiefkim20-12615

Chief Kim is not perfect and not spotless.

Though this drama isn’t my preferred genre, I have never been doubtful because I believed that Namgung Min can manage to cover the 20 episodes with his flawless skill. And I wasn’t wrong at all.

The plot was well written and developed. Nothing is draggy. Every character has been established to change and able to emphasize each charm and appeal. There was no boring moment with Chief Kim, the book was full of joyful, funny, with a little action, bromance that you will enjoy and some emotional phases. They give emphasis on how to be optimistic when facing a dilemma in your workplace and personal matter.

What I like about this drama is the lesson on how to become a decent person against the evil domination arises everywhere even in our own workplace. It has shown that we can always turn back no matter how far we have gone. It is not a weakness to correct your mistake and liberate yourself to change.

A must see drama for a second chance at life.

Verdict: 9/10

INTROVERTED BOSS (K-drama)

introverted3-00991a

I love the handsome, over-thinker, smart, perceptive, shy and introvert boss.  When you know him deeply, despite being an introverted person, he really cares and protects who dear to him. He managed to observe his employees and know their worth.

This drama received a mix comments of disappointment and acceptance. I honestly didn’t anticipate this one to watch, but found myself doing the marathon and finished it for three days without complaining. Yes, I have liked it.

There was so much to like about the introverted boss and so much to understand about his lonely life.  He spent years living in his own shell; protecting his weakness, hiding his strength, misunderstood his silence and trying to change his incapability to interact and face with people.

There are lots of kisses, internal monologues and flings in this drama that you would surely enjoy too.  It will give you comfort, that though you are different from the rest, there is always someone who will sincerely discover the real you and accept you for who you are.

Introverted boss finale is warm, sweet and the cutest.   It wraps up accordingly from where it falls and stands.

Verdict: 8/10

SPACE OUT

She’s a giddy person and she is my roommate, unfortunately.

She’s always spaced out and sometimes I didn’t understand a word she said. When she talks, she jumps from this topic to another issue. Sometimes, she uttered something out of nowhere that you can’t follow.  I think her brain is disoriented from taking any substance or something.

There are times, she complains that her boyfriend is cheating on her, while she was having another affair too. She is always posting something on the Facebook and begged us to like them or make some comment.

Rarely, she washed her bed sheets and pillows and complained she never any spare of them. So she slept with her mattress for a week without beddings and pillowcase. I think It’s gross.  I wonder how she couldn’t buy those important things (they were cheap) when she had an iPhone7+, Chanel bag and shoe collection that she never wear all out.

One morning, she behaves like crazy when she hurriedly goes back to our room from outside to take her umbrella. She told us it was raining hard. Startled, we never see any single drops of rain when we were out. It wasn’t sunny and it wasn’t raining at all. We are pretty sure, she wasn’t joking that day.

Honestly, we are comfortable without her around, so much I got the benefit most. We decided we will pay no attention to her as much as possible to avoid conflict. Let her space out as much as she likes. However, this morning, I wasn’t able to ignore her. I exploded.

When her alarm clock rang around 5:45 am, I totally woke up. Though it was loud, I tried to sleep again. When I was about to doze off after five minutes, her alarm rings again continuously until four times. I am a light sleeper, you can imagine how bad it was for me. I have never slept again.

I was really furious, much more when I saw her still on bed soundly sleeping until 7 am.

I screamed at her with all my veins and bones to blast. I was ready to fight with her. But do you know what she said after my yelling? “Yeah, my phone was very loud.” that’s all and she space out.

OMG!

Tomorrow With You (K-drama)

Tomorrow with you is another time travel drama that is heartbreaking and beautifully written at the same time. It had one blast for doom, happiness, the rains, and rainbows.  It’s about saving whoever you love most, a roller coaster of leaping from the past to the future, change the original plans and face the consequences that filled with unbearable sadness.

I love time travel and no matter how mystifying the plot could be, I would still watch it. But this drama was not complicated as Nine Times Time Travel Yes, there are some hovels in the plot, but because of this captivating chemistry and the magnetic romance between the main couple, you wouldn’t mind at all.

Lee Je-Hoon as Yoo So-Joon is a CEO of a real estate company. He has the ability to travel through time via a subway. Song Ma-rin (Shin Min-A) works as a photographer and destined to meet an accident where Yoo So-Joon saved her, and later got involved with her life too.  These two will give you a ride to travel the emotional mundane of life, a real hitch of every couple do and experience.

Tomorrow with you shows us that we should live each moment in our life, to be true with our feelings and to less worry about our future by trusting the process in the present. No matter what we do, we can never tell what awaits us because life is peculiar and full of unwanted surprises.

I hope our tomorrow with someone we love brings real happiness in our life.

Verdict: 9/10
