Corruption is everywhere in real life, and this issue is unravelled perfectly by this new k-drama “whisper” that I started watching yesterday. As I was watching the first episode, I remember being mind-blown the entire time, because this show talks about heavy issues in ways that are heart-wrenching and addicting. Also, I love how this show doesn’t only show flat characters (e.g. hero vs. villain), but reveals the motives behind the villain’s actions (much like OUAT, for a comparison). It makes the story more believable, and in this particular context, is a constant wake-up call for me that while money can’t buy happiness, it can buy a lot of other very necessary things: loyalty, power, fear, and “justice”.

And that last scene, man. That last scene left me gaping and wanting more.

So what’s the point of this post, you ask? I just wanted to let you guys know about this drama and how its so effing good (so far). Currently, I am at episode 3 and I literally had to pause it to write this short post.

In short, just go watch it. I’m srs.


Angel Eyes

So…. Here we go.

I am not gonna go into detail as of why I started watching this drama, you can read it in my previous post.

Basically, I finished watching another Korean drama, and I always have to have a Korean drama to watch, so I decided to try this out after hearing all my friends rave about it.

Ok? Ok (haha get it TFIOS) 

This drama is an SBS weekend drama, so it comes out in the weekend (obviously.) #lolnotrelevantsorry

Anyways, back on track. Ok straight up, this drama is so EFFING good (Yes, I swear. Get over it. I’m sorry it’s just that good I have to swear.) Like what the heck, I was straight up crying in the first episode. OK NO ONE CRIES IN THE FIRST EPISODE. But it’s just reallyyy good.

If you’re wondering what it’s about and what genre it is, it’s medical melodrama/romance, I guess. I mean, don’t just disregard this because it’s a genre you don’t like. Honestly I find medical dramas very cheesy, but I fell in love with this one, and I am pretty sure you will too. So don’t give up on it yet! 

This drama is about a girl Yoon Soo Wan who lost her eyesight and her mom in an accident in a tunnel, while at the same time a firefighter who was trying to get her mom out also got killed. Yoon Soo Wan in her teenage years then meets with Park Dong Joo, a guy in highschool who apparently is that fire fighter (who tried to save her mom’s life)’s son. They fell in love at first sight (technically it’s not possible, but you get what i mean), but was separated because of a sad family histories. They then met again 12 years later. Soo Wan got an eye donor, and is now a 119 emergency worker, while Dong Joo went back from Boston and works as a surgeon. 

And I’m trying hard to write a synopsis without spoiling anything (really though, I’m still at episode 3 I don’t have anything big to spoil yet:p). But this drama is very sad and cute, and I love how it’s really clear with the storyline. Unlike God’s Gift, it went straight to the point, which I like because then I don’t have to constantly pause the clip and take a moment to digest the material. I’m not saying God’s Gift is bad, because I think it is supposed to be very mysterious and all, but when you’re looking for a light drama that you don’t have to think a lot about, this is a perfect drama. 

I would have to say that this is a very emotional drama. I cried a number of times, and I’m still at episode 3 (btw, currently there are 6 episodes). I mean, the actor’s honestly not the best people (I expected more), but they were so great at making the already devastating scenario even more devastating, and I just can’t help but feel the pity for them. Oh no, let me rephrase that. I did not feel pity for them. I felt what the character felt. I was made the character by these amazing actors. So yeah.

So overall, I would rate this 90/100, just because I have only watched 3 episodes and I can’t base the whole drama off this. But I would really recommend it. 🙂 

Cheers! xx 

P.S that song run to you is really catchy, you should check it out. 

The Fault in Our Stars

Ok hands down, this book is one of the best books I have ever read. At least in the young adult genre. 

With the new trailer and movie coming out soon, I decided to re-read this book. And i completely fell in love with it. Again.

For those of you guys who don’t know what the book is about (have you been living under a rock?!), it is about a girl suffering from cancer who met this guy who completely turned her life around in this support group. She discovers how beautiful love is, something she’s never dreamt of having. Until this guy told her how he’s bound to die soon.

Green wasn’t very descriptive with the physical characteristics, but that’s one thing I love about his writing because then I get to imagine what the character is like with the description given. He was, though, very descriptive with the character’s feelings, especially Hazel’s, since it is told in her point of view. 

Yes, I did cry in this book. It was a typical love story, but John Green made it so real ughhh it is really good!

One thing I really love about Green’s writing style is the details he puts that symbolizes the character’s personality, and that every little thing fits into a puzzle in the end. I especially love the cigarette metaphor, which is a metaphor Augustus (the guy) uses to symbolize how we give the cigarette the power to kill us. The story about the An Imperial Affliction book was also a great part of this book, and it made the story so much more meaningful. 

I am so looking forward to this movie, especially since Shailene Woodley is in this movie! 

Happy reading fictionistas! xx
