Winter Sonata (Drama)


Genre: Romance, Drama

Winter Sonata begins when Joon-sang (Bae Yong Jun) moves to a new high school in search for his biological father. Yu-jin (Choi Ji Woo) and Sang-hyuk (Park Yong Ha) have been close childhood friends; though Sang-hyuk wants to be more than a friend, Yu-jin sees him merely as a brother. On a trip together with other high school mates, Oh Chelin (Park Sol Mi), Jin-suk (Lee Hye Eun) and Yong-kuk (Ryu Seung Soo), Yu-jin is saved after an accident by Joon-sang. Afterwards, they become close to each other and she opens up his cold heart. However, circumstances and fate dictate that their love will never be. He abruptly disappears from their lives.
Ten years later the old High School buddies gather together to celebrate Yu-jin and Sang-hyuk's soon-to-be wedding. Yu-jin, who was deeply in love with Joon-sang, still has a fire in her heart for him even though he's been out of her life for a decade. But at the party, Oh Chelin's new boyfriend arrives, who appears the same as Joon-sang. Could it be him or is Yu-jin only dreaming?

My Progress:
I have read a lot of good reviews about this drama and my cousin also recommended it. I'm still watching this one, and so far, it has attracted my attention. I wanted to finish this before my birthday (but it didn't happen!) but I wanted to post something on my birthday, so here we go!!

Aaaaah! Another sad drama! But in the end, ......, shhh.... can't tell! Hmm... there were a lot of crying in here, so I wonder if Choi Ji Woo's (Yu-jin) eyes were swollen the whole time... hmm... Anywayz, it's a pretty good drama, especially for the fans of Bae Yong Jun.

Moon Child


Genre: Action, Drama

In the year 2014, Japan has collapsed economically and thus its people emigrated in large numbers and settled in other parts of the world. In a corner in Asia, there is a little city called Mallepa, a big melting pot where Asians such as Hongkongers, Taiwanese and Japanese live together. It was a place where people fought for order, food and freedom. It was there where Shou (Gackt), raised as an orphan and Kei (Hyde), who could live forever, met and became the best of friends. However, they were unable to escape from the fight for power involving gangs of different ethnicity on the city of Mallepa. How can one live when living requires a gun?

The poster does not really show anything that would be scary, so don't let the poster scare you away, ok! This was actually an interesting movie! Love the action scenes with Gackt and Hyde...hehehe... Sometimes it gets bloody but anybody can handle that... and there were a lot of killing, so be careful. But all in all, a pretty good movie... kind of sad too... awww!!... If you're a fan of Hyde, visit Kagen no Tsuki here on my blog!!
