Started Switch Girl today and i finished all the episodes in one sitting.
It is effin’ hilarious!
It’s just like watching an anime come to life.
Next up, Switch Girl 2!
Wait for me drama, fo’ sure we’d meet tomorrow!
Itazura na Kiss is a drama that is a dream to every obsessed Asian Drama Lovers feels.
It doesn’t get old, it brings out the same kinds of emotions in the same intensity to a viewer no matter what version you’ve seen and most of all you can’t help but fall in love with the OTP no matter how mismatched they may seem.
Episode 8 was a dream.
But poor Kinnosuke…
If no one wants you, i’m here.
I think i have made a similar post in the past where i also answered the same query for another follower.
However since i can not retrieve that particular post anymore and for the sake of anyone else who might be curious (okay, okay, i’m just too lazy to search), well, here ya go anon…
HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN WATCHING DRAMAS
I started watching dramas last 2003 and that was because of the Meteor Garden craze that hit the Philippines.
It all happened by chance because honestly speaking, i used to scoff at the people who went crazy over it because it’s something that i can’t simply fathom or understand since i just find the whole idea of watching 4 gay looking men who look as if they were transported from another planet with the way they were dressed gaudy and unelegant when i didn’t know any better.
But alas, one fine day i was sick and in bed and had nothing better to watch and i chanced upon this scene of San Cai playing the piano for Dao Ming Sz’s birthday while channel surfing and suffice it to say that i ate my words BIG TIME.
I was obsessed from that point on.
I spent a big amount of money just to buy the DVD’s of the drama when the prices for such were really still so exorbitant.
I was sleepless for days just watching episode after episode after episode just to catch up and i became such a big Jerry Yan fantard that come Christmas time that year i had tons of posters, collectibles and other what have you’s as gifts from friends that had his face on it because all of them know how much i adore him since i can not simply stop talking about him.
After that, Meteor Garden 2 came around and it left such a bad taste in my mouth that i was convinced that Meteor Garden 1 was a fluke and so i stopped watching for awhile.
Then the Lovers in Paris phenomenon came around and i watched it and liked it but not as much as MG because let’s all be honest here, Park Shin Yang is really nowhere near the vicinity of hot and so i was just pissed in the entire course of the drama over the fact that Kim Jung Eun did not choose Lee Dong Gun over him.
And so i coasted by.
But then, MY NAME IS KIM SAM SOON happened and i have never looked back since then.
This series cemented my fate of being an ASIAN DRAMA ADDICT because it was soooooo damn good that i finished the entire 16 episodes in one sitting and it made me feel FEELS that i have not felt ever in my entire life watching TV and it was that addiction to the emotions that a simple drama can bring me that led to my obsession of watching drama after drama after drama.
The rest is history.
I REGRET NOTHING.
HOW DO I FIND THE TIME TO WATCH SO MANY
The secret lies with a good internet connection.
I don’t wait for a drama to finish but rather i watch it while it is airing and when subs become available for the recently finished episode so it’s just like watching one or two or three episodes at most in a day or night depending on what is airing.
Waiting for a drama to finish takes dedication because you invest a larger chunk of your time watching it since you have to finish all the episodes in a matter of days rather than having it evenly spread out just like any regular TV show that you’d watch on TV if you watch it while it’s airing.
I also pick my series logically in a way that if it doesn’t interest me, i don’t force myself to watch it despite the urging of other people. That cuts back on the amount of time that you’d invest in a drama that you will drop later on vs. those that you would really like to see more of.
If you follow me on instagram, you would see that i have a really full packed social life and that i spend most Saturday nights away from home and yet i still can watch as many dramas as i like because of this technique.
Of course, if it’s a weekend and i have no work or nowhere to go, i invest a larger chunk of my time watching but not to the extent where i’d sacrifice real life just to be able to watch my series.
I enjoyed the movie and i am now a Lee Jonghyuk fangirl thanks mostly to appa odiga so definitely yay!
Love her as a person and as a model, hate her as an actress.
Ugh. Marmalade Boy hands down for reasons which can be found HERE.
Just mentioning the name of this drama is enough to send shivers up and down my spine.
Not because of anything good but because of the horrors of horrendous acting and scriptwriting that i’ve suffered while sitting through it.
