The Story is As Crazy As the Title!

Here’s my review without spoilers:

1. Your initial thoughts would be “this looks cliché”, “the story starts slow”, “the main couple looks weird and crazy”, etc. You may feel like the drama starts off slow have no idea where the story is heading to.

2. But as the story progresses, you’ll see that the writer is playing with our hearts. This drama is full of twists, becoming anti-cliché with each episode, and giving us unexpected moves. Even the episodes that you think is “boring” actually have some important details.

3. Because of the crazy relationship & chemistry between the main couple, the dark mystery circling around the male lead and the misunderstandings that actually help with the plot progression, this drama gets more interesting with each episode. So rather than it getting more boring & bland, it’s actually getting more intriguing & engaging.

4. Although some of the plot seem ridiculous at first, but they’re actually needed for the plot. You’ll find them reasonable, realistic and relatable at some point.

5. The romance is not cringy like most romcom dramas. It’s very well executed in its own pace, not rushing or slowing down too much. The ML/FL don’t change overnight just because they start falling in love with each other.

NOTE: What I love the most is how mature their relationship is shown after they officially date. The transition from enemies-to-lovers, from them physically & mentally hurting each other, to understanding & supporting each other for better, for worse, in sickness and health, till death do them part - PERFECT!

6. The comedy doesn’t feel forced. Sometimes the comedy is dark, but it’s the kind of funny that doesn’t make you cringe. You’ll find yourself thinking “yes, this is how romcom is supposed to be”.

NOTE: The comedy may not “click” with you like some viewers, especially if you’re not used to “breaking the 4th wall narrative” and “dark humour”. But like some other viewers, maybe you’ll start finding the humour funny when you rewatch after you know the direction of the story. :)

7. Sometimes it gives us emotional damage, especially with the ML’s backstory. His life is so sad it makes us hope he’ll get the happy ending he deserves.

8. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IS ONE OF THE BEST HERE. It’s like “character development” is the genre itself with this drama.

The ML’s character is not new in Kdrama world, but the difference is this drama writer really addressed his asshole-ness in details. ML characters in typical romcom dramas would change drastically after falling in love and after that, they act like they weren’t an asshole in the past. XD

Of course the FL plays a part in it, but the writer wants us to witness his realistic character development, the real and painful causes, impacts & process of it, not drastic solely because of love. And the FL becomes his biggest supporter for that. <3

That’s what I love about CL. The writer takes this matter seriously (EP14 is the peak), though the development is slow compared to usual romcom dramas.

9. “Underwhelming mystery/villain arc”? If you considered the fact that CL is originally a romcom so it needs to maintain its lightweight, then the underwhelming mystery/villain arc wouldn’t affect you that much to the point that you rate it low. It’s still one of a kind, a refreshing romcom drama that defies cliché tropes! ^^

10. This drama conveys messages around character development, healing process & and second chances. This story is not as dramatic as usual dramas, no black & white. “Human beings are prone to make mistakes”. It’s more mature & realistic. :’D

11. IMO, compared to most romcom Kdramas, Crazy Love has the best satisfying & unproblematic ending so far, after enough of unsatisfying endings in romcom Kdrama. You hear me? I’m not saying “one of the best”, but “the best” here! XD

NOTE: If you ever think that the ending is rushed, think again. Because the mystery arc was pretty much being hinted since EP1. The writer/director dropped bombs little by little in each episode, then the heaviest bomb was dropped in EP14-EP15. Just need us to pay more attention to details (I even rewatched it more than once to notice a lot of Easter Eggs that they left for viewers).

Along with the hints, the story focuses on the ML’s character development & the relationship dynamics between our main couple. In the end, everything was wrapped up in a nice way with many relatable lessons to learn.

12. All OSTs for this drama are absolute bliss to your ears. My top favourites are “Dive into You” by JayB & “Maybe” by DAVII.

13. The more I rewatch, the more I appreciate the drama, the brilliant writing & directing. I love how the writer had everything and every character planned & built well from the start. It makes me wanna check out other works from the scriptwriter. :)

14. CONCLUSION: “Crazy Love” is not a pure romcom, has a mixed of many genres (mystery, psychological). It’s not that light, but also not that heavy.

15. What are you waiting for? Still sleeping on this drama? You’re missing out!

I hope these points will help you jump into watching Crazy Love! :)

A Modern Kdrama with a Touch of Older Kdramas that Can Be Confusing and Unpredictable at Times

“Destined with You” is a drama with a mix of light and dark genres, which starts with a light tone, then the tone shifts, darkens as it gets more serious to reveal the backstory, and make viewers realise that they’ve been given clues along the way, and they just need to connect the dots as the story is unfolding, which means…

…it is also the type of drama that needs you to pay full attention or you will miss out on the details left by the writer/director. Trust me, I’d been rewatching while waiting for next episodes and found details that I didn’t notice on my first watch.

The drama does not spell out every detail for you due its non-linear narrative, but gives enough hints and details along the way if you pay attention. It does not hold smooth consistent tones from start to finish, nor are the characters all perfect and more akin to flawed human beings you find irl. The characters have layers and depth that you need to understand as a whole and if you only chose to see them from the surface, then you will definitely misunderstand them and their motives, actions etc You have to be patient with both, story and characters, in order to see it all unfolding and to enjoy it.

I missed the kind of feelings I get from Kdramas that remind me of how I fell in love with Kdramaland 13 years ago. Most modern Kdramas have become more westernised, most storylines and characters have become rather… ‘forgettable’. Kdrama has been losing its essence since few years ago that I switched to Thai/C/Jdramas that feel more like home.

But this one, is some kind of refreshments for me. It’s modern, but it also contains some tropes we saw in older Kdramas.

We have leads with FLAWS, which allows space for character development. We have dramatic, confusing and exciting plots - best when we watch it ongoing, sharing theories with other viewers.

My final say:

I suggest if you’re ready to start watching this drama, go with an OPEN MIND. Just go with the flow (it has non-linear narrative, so that’s where it gets confusing sometimes), so that you won’t be questioning why this happens, why this character did what they did, etc..

Don’t be too stuck up and too strict. This way you might end up loving this drama as a whole!

Has a Very Very Good Start and Keeps Getting Better with Each Episode!

(This review will be edited as the story progresses)


I don’t like Bua’s (the FL actress) previous dramas even though they’re popular (e.g. “Praomook”) so before starting this one, I was sceptical at first.

And I’m not familiar with the ML actor, never seen him before. But oh my, he’s like a FREAKING hawty! He’s one of eye candies in this drama, along with Bua and the actor who plays as her brother.

But one thing that made me jump straight into EP1 is my love for the plot involving the romance between a main character from the city & their future love interest from the countryside! E.g. “To Me, It’s Simply You”, my all-time favourite Thai drama, number 1 on my favourite lakorn list! :P

So I pushed aside my initial sceptical feelings and jumped straight into EP1, and I never regret my decision ever since. It’s so good that I wish I could travel in time to the future just so I could watch all episodes. So yeah, the only thing I regret is that I started watching it too early. :(


So far, so so so good! I love how light it is, and fresh, with less cliché scenes.

I love it. It has originality. It feels fresh. Not that cliché, IMO. I like that sometimes they almost gave us cliché scenes, but they decided not to, in the end. LOL

So if you’re tired of cliché storylines but you’re not really looking for “bizarre” plot, then this one is perfect for you. :D


So far (EP1-5), it’s fun and cute with nothing really important happening, except for the accident that happened in EP1. I think they left that for the “mystery” part later, but we just don’t know when they’ll start to uncover it.

However, I feel kinda worried seeing the lack of the word “comedy” in the genre list of this drama. Because the early episodes are funny, cute and light, like a romcom drama.

I’m just hoping it won’t be too heavy later, because I want the story to have the same tone like its intro & outro.


If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’d know that character development is the most important thing that I seek in a drama.

The FL starts off as an annoying/snobbish rich girl, like typical city girl in dramas. But what I like is how they portray her in a way that she also has her sweet & kind side, and TBH, her snobbish personality came from her life as a person born with a silver spoon in her mouth. But she’s not too spoiled. Her dad has the power to control her path in life. She’s also hardworking and smart! <3

The ML, on the other hand, is strict, but soft-spoken. I just hope he doesn’t go too hard on the FL. And I’m also not a fan of some of his life principles.


I really love the chemistry between all cast members here, not just the main leads. I can tell that they’re enjoying the shooting of this drama. ^^


I have no complaints about the acting part, because as far as I can see, they’re all good at their job. Yes, even the child actor!


So far, the songs are good, however, they haven’t left a deep impression on me, yet. Let’s see.

But OST isn’t an important part of a drama for me. If it’s great, then it’s great, I might put it in my favourite OST list. But if it’s not, it’s fine as long as the story is good. Usually when the story is not good, then I don’t even care about the OST no matter how good it is!

EDIT: The OST is growing on me

I hope there will be many more Thai dramas like this!

Genuine, Warm, Peaceful

This is the drama that you need when you want to seek genuine peace and warmth in your life.

TBH, slice-of-life is not my preferred genre. I’d avoid this genre, most of the time. But I decided to watch this because of Li Xian, and I love it SO MUCH I ended up falling in love with other cast members.

As a graduate from Tourism Management course who is also an aspiring writer, I think this drama has succeeded in promoting Yunnan with excellent script-writing.

Even tho it’s slow, there wasn’t a single boring moment. No skipping/fast-forwarding at all. I even found myself feeling hesitant to finish this masterpiece, as if it wasn’t slow enough.

Definitely a 10/10 from me, and if it was possible I would rate it much more higher!

When It’s So Much Better Than You Expected

“My Sassy Psychic” - a truly great lakorn with a concept that’s nothing new, but written and executed in a fresh way.

To begin, this lakorn is like a mix of “My Secret Bride”, “Love Forever After”, “I See Dead People”, “Let’s Fight Ghost” & “Superburoot Jorm Jon: Maturot Lohgan”. It has a bit of mystical/supernatural elements because of the amulet thingy, and horror because of the ghosts.

As always, when I do drama reviews I’ll include the Pros & Cons/Likes & Dislikes in my own views.

WARNING AHEAD: It’s gonna be long.

1. PLOT: Oh the storylines is VERY good overall. There’s never a boring moment even when it’s not the main characters’ scenes.

And you know when you’ve already watched too much lakorn that you’ve become an expert in “clicking the skip button”? Yeah, I’m one of those people. There are quite a number of lakorns that make me click the skip button and skipping through unnecessary plot, sometimes I end up skipping a big part of the story, but it’s unnecessary, so why waste time, right?

But that’s not the case with this one. Without expecting anything high, only started with my love towards the ML actor, Punjan, and my liking for romcom genre, I ended up enjoying this drama very much, from episode 1 to episode 13.

The plot development is surprisingly fast. In episode 2, we already see the main couple agreeing to work together. It’s so nice to see that.

The writing is also smooth and almost flawless, unlike typical Thai lakorns. It made me look forward to watching more dramas from the same scriptwriter.

2. CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: This is one of the most important aspects for me when I watch a drama. And luckily it passed the standard. You may not like the ML at first (not me tho, because it’s Punjan LOL) as he started off as a hotheaded guy, easy to get angry and pick a fight, but here’s what I LOVE the most about it.

It’s shown every time after discussing/resolving a misunderstanding that leads him to being a hothead, he’s kinda quick to be cool and calm down. Now this is considered a very great trait that a Thai lakorn could have.

Same with other characters, even the side characters (like Phai). I really like that even side characters have their own roles here. Not a waste of acting talent.

3. ROMANCE: Of course, the one that I’d been looking forward since the beginning because it’s “romcom”, after all. NGL, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the romance between our main couple. No unnecessary hate towards each other, started as a cute crush then it develops quite fast, I’d say. That’s one more surprise for me. And the romance is not that heavy romance, it’s rather cute, sweet & satisfying.

4. ACTING: I’ve always known Punjan’s great potential and he did not disappoint in this lakorn. That’s one of the reasons I decided to watch this drama.

On the other hand, I never knew Preem tho. At first, she kinda reminds me of the famous Filipino actor, Daniel Padilla. IDK why, maybe the nose and the lips? ? But her acting is also great. It didn’t feel awkward or anything.

As for other characters, I think all of them did a great job. My most favourite is the cute Palm Supachai (Sak, the ML’s bestie). He’s always entertaining in every lakorn he’s in, even in a heavy lakorn like “Game of Outlaws”. He brightens our mood with his funny & cute character.

5. CHEMISTRY: Oh God, who would’ve thought that Punjan & Preem would look so good together? Their chemistry is unexpectedly off the chart, y’all. I have nothing bad to say. I just hope we’ll see them as the main couple in another drama in the future.

There’s nothing bad to say about the chemistry between every cast member. I love them all!

6. EMOTIONAL DAMAGE: Although this lakorn is lighthearted, it still has its own emotional phase. The family & friendship aspects caught my heart. Tho I laughed a lot because of the comedy, I also cried a lot towards the end.

7. COMEDY: At times, when watching this drama, I thought it wasn’t like Thai lakorn, but aside from the amulet thingy, the comedy is what reminds me that it is indeed a Thai lakorn, as we know Thailand is the best when it comes to comedy.

I love the comedic duo, Phai & Mee, the FL’s dad, the ML’s bestie Sak, the saloon owner Thor. They made this drama funnier and brighter.

1. OST: The theme songs are nice for your ears. My most favourite is “I’ll Be There”. I find myself unconsciously hum the song and it keeps playing in my mind and I like it. Gonna be in my favourite lakorn OST list!

Now it’s time for-


1. ROMANCE: I know I said I love the romance but it’s kinda short for me. I wish they could give us at least one more episode that focuses on the romance. :(

2. SLS: It might be bad if you have 2nd lead syndrome (SLS) for Doctor Pran. I’m lucky enough that I was always rooting for the ML since episode 1. But what’s there not to like about Doctor Pran? He’s hot, cool & calm, kind, smart, rich, well y’know, he’s the typical dream guy most ladies would swoon over.

1. SHORT: I’m not sure if this is even a bad thing about this drama but 13 EPISODES IS NOT ENOUGH FOR ME. *cries* But only 13 eps might be a good thing as no unnecessary draggy plot like typical lakorns.

CONCLUSION: Honestly speaking, My Sassy Psychic is a gem. It’s one of the hidden gems that we rarely find when it comes to Thai lakorn. It deserves more recognition & hype! :’)

OMG sorry guys it’s sooo long. I always do this, losing track of what I was really trying to tell, then it gets so long before I even realise. But I hope my reviews could convince you to start watching My Sassy Psychic (now what else are you waiting for? GO WATCH IT NOW!)

Thanks for reading & BYEEEPPPP!!!

Someone said YAMG is a drama that’s “far from drama, but close to reality”


Words can’t describe how much of a masterpiece this drama is! I cried so bad at the final episode, part of me felt so proud of the entire production team especially the novelist/scriptwriter. Another part of me felt like I’d be missing something big in my life after this drama ends.

“How do I move on from this drama?”
“What should I watch next?”
“Where else can I find a drama that’s as good as this?”
^ My thoughts during the finale.

I kinda regret that I decided to watch this drama late (because it’d be better if I watched it while it was ongoing, so I could suffer from waiting for new episodes LOL), but also grateful because I started watching it nonetheless.

The only disadvantages of YAMG are:
1. 32 episodes are really not enough for me. I need more! I need to witness their future as a family.
2. It’ll be so hard for me to get out of this hole YAMG has thrown me into. :’)
3. YAMG, amongst other Asian romance dramas that I’ve watched since 2010, has successfully made me feel single af! LOL!
4. My standard for romance genre AND my type of guy have went up to a new higher level (as if they weren’t already high). Now I don’t know if I could get me a boyfriend—ahem—a HUSBAND like Yu Tu who has flaws but perfect in my eyes. I don’t know if I could find a partner as supportive as Jing Jing, who would look at me like I’m the brightest star in his life, who would tell me that I’m “his GLORY”. :’D

This is it. Without second thoughts, I rate You Are My Glory a solid 10/10, more than that if I could! I’d definitely rewatch it in the future. <3

A Perfectly Written and Directed Thriller/Suspense Drama with Versatile Acting!

As a Yoo Seung Ho’s die-hard fan, I had been waiting for this drama to air since the casting news last year.

Here are my thoughts about this drama, divided into 3 categories:

1. The Plot

I haven’t found a truly good thriller/suspense Kdrama for a while (I was in a Kdrama slump for almost 2 years). Just like why Yoo Seungho picked up this drama, one of the reasons I decided to watch it is also out of ‘curiosity’.

This kind of plot is quite unusual (as expected from Yoo Seungho’s dramas, most of the time). Kidnapping a FRIEND for ransom money? I’m totally bought!

And this drama gave me the tense that I needed. Every episode ends with scenes that left me feeling shocked and intrigued. It reminds me of Yoo Seungho’s previous thriller drama, “Memorist”, in some ways, especially the camera movements.

2. The Character-Building

I love that every character, from main to side characters, have their own roles that are useful to the story development. Nothing feels unnecessary. Then again, it’s only 8 episodes. I don’t think there’re rooms for fillers.

The main characters make me feel what they feel, especially Lee Junseong (Yoo Seungho). His life is so miserable that it pains my heart to watch his parts. He still has a pure soul though he has been tested a lot in his life.

Song Jaehyo (Kim Donghwi), how he starts to be out of his rational mind when his whole life depends on the money. We can’t help but pity him because of his poor situations.

Park Minwoo (Yoo Soobin), he was used to being taken advantage of for money since high school. He’s physically weak, and people see him as a fool, when in fact he’s not. He has a kind heart and trusts people that treat him good.

3. The Acting

YOO SEUNG HO. The authentic, versatile, and trustworthy actor that he is. His eye acting, his facial expressions, his body movements, his voice control in every situation, how he shifts from action to emotional scenes. Smooth. PERFECT!

Of course, I will not discredit other actors, especially Yoo Soobin and Kim Donghwi. They amaze me the most at scenes that show their ‘desperation’. Yoo Soobin’s cries when he was begging to be spared. Kim Donghwi’s voice intonation when his mind becomes more distorted.

So yes, I am truly satisfied with everything about this drama, so far.

I genuinely hope that it will end on a high note, though I am curious about the ending and how their friendship will become after the whole kidnapping events.

A Masterpiece Lakorn!

So... it has really ended... i was never ready for it to end but I must learn to let go.

I’ve been planning to write a long detailed review on this lakorn but unfortunately I’m at a loss for words. The only thing that I keep repeating whenever someone asks about this lakorn, is “THIS IS A MUST-WATCH LAKORN”

This lakorn is such a rare gem, a masterpiece, which means we rarely find lakorns like this. It’d be such a waste if we decide not to give it a chance.

Seriously, for those who haven’t started watching this, I can only say “just start watching and you won’t regret!”

Trust me. My Thai friends told me that this lakorn had done good both in ratings and online views, and I can see why. It attracts attention nationwide, even without much promotion from CH3 (I really don’t understand why CH3 treated this lakorn dirty, when it has the talented and powerful Nadech Kugimiya as the ML!).

The ONLY downside of this lakorn is, 13 episodes are not enough! We need more! Lol

Rewatch value: 10/10 (I even rewatched it when it was still ongoing, only to kill time while waiting for the next episodes!)

P/S: if you ever feel stressed and down during this pandemic, yes! This lakorn would definitely be a great help to bring you into a world filled with sunshine and happiness!

A Second Season?

I’m one of the viewers that had been waiting for this lakorn to air since 2020, during “My Forever Sunshine” era. Game of Outlaws or Game Lah Torrachon, is simply an outstanding action-packed lakorn with bittersweet romance.

I had high expectations before it started airing, and yes, it reached my expectations. I love love LOVE how the production team, Metta Mahaniyom put their utmost efforts to deliver GLT, despite the lack of promotions from Channel 3.

Now I’m gonna put what I love & dislike about GLT into Pros & Cons categories. It’s gonna be a long review.

1. The action is top-notch! My most favourite action scenes are Inspector Nont & Jennaree’s action scenes. I kept rewinding because their moves are too fast sometimes. I could tell that they were really trained for their fighting scenes, and you can watch Mark’s training/BTS videos on Metta Mahaniyom YouTube channel.
2. The romance. Oh God, I’m a sucker for romance, but not heavy romance. This one has bittersweet romance journey between the main couple, but it’s worth it. I won’t forget to mention that their kisses, OMG, for a moment I thought I was watching a lakorn from Channel 7, not Channel 3! Mark’s best kisses are, without a doubt, in GLT. It made the “slight romance” become satisfying for me.
3. The acting. As expected from the cast members that are mostly experienced, I could say that their acting is *chef’s kiss*, especially Taew’s. Her performance is spectacular! (PS: I’m not speaking as her fan here!). Ah, I think only the teen couple that really seems in acting, but it’s acceptable since their indeed new.
4. The chemistry. Should I even explain this? GLT isn’t Mark & Taew’s 1st lakorn together so their chemistry is highly satisfying. As for Top (Mavin) & Toon (Lisa), althought it’s their 1st time working together, they have great chemistry. And as for other cast members, they all go well with each other.
5. The quality. GLT is high quality in terms of production, sound effects, videography, props, etc. Simply said, it’s one of the rare Thai lakorns that makes me feel like watching a modern Kdrama. I hope more future lakorns will be produced with high quality like this one, following Metta Mahaniyom footsteps, no matter whether it’s action or other genre.
6. The storyline. Although some parts are repetitive, it makes sense in the end because everything here happens for a reason. Most scenes are necessary. No skipping unnecessary scenes for me, like what I did to most lakorns. This one is totally different.
7. The OSTs. I love all songs. Periodt.
8. Lastly, most of the time while watching GLT, I forgot that it’s a remake. It’s similar but so different, in a good way!

1. The shooting scenes. Some shooting scenes look unrealistic, like shooting from far with just one hand. But eh, it’s still bearable for me.
2. Evil people are so hard to die LMAO. Especially Rita. Why is it so hard to see her getting even a slightest cut?! Sometimes I laughed because if this.
3. Sergeant Chart. No exact words to explain how I loved his character. He was one of my favourite characters, and they decided to kill him off, but fortunately, he died with honor.
4. Lisa & Mavin. Hmm, I didn’t really enjoy this pairing, but I certainly was hoping that none of them would die in the end (tho a part of me already had a feeling that it’d happen anyway). I’d say their deaths were unnecessary, if you asked me. But after all, GLT is a remake, so even tho the writer changed a few parts of the story, I think they decided to stick with “significant”/“important” parts of the original version.
5. Lastly, the ending. In my personal opinion, they should’ve just ended it with the beach scene, but I guess it’s still a GAME. If it ended at that confusing scene, I guess they wanted an open ending for our own imagination. But if I’m gonna be honest, I HATE open endings so I really hope they’ll give us a 2nd season! PS: But if there’s season 2, then most probably we won’t get to see Lisa & Mavin again. :(

Could be Better

To be honest, this second season is disappointing for me, and this is coming from a TUC S1 die-hard fan who went around telling everyone to watch TUC 2 years ago.

A lot of things could be removed/added/improved to make the sequel a lot better, but well, it already happened. It’s useless to say anything contradictory to this drama at this point.

I finished this only for the original counters (they carried the show).

Things I’m not satisfied about:
1. The new counter, Jeokbong’s character showing no significant development.
2. The story focused too much on the evil spirits’ plot.
3. The piano guy made appearance in the finale - no significant reason, IMO. Closure? He already had his closure after what Hana did to save him.
4. The writers deciding not to develop Hana-Somun relationship dynamics further, after they started it first in S1 - a big loss. As more than half of TUC fandoms are their shippers.

Overall, 7/10 from me (10/10 for season 1)

My Taste in Romantic Drama Becomes Higher Because of this Drama

And here goes my FIRST review on MDL.

Honestly, I can’t put my feelings for this drama into words. It’s just PERFECT.

Oh well I was overboard. Sure, it’s not perfect in terms of the plot. The story seemed to have lost the point midway. There was a time when I went “what? Why are they like this? What’s happening? It’s not supposed to be like this!”

BUT the final episode, I’m telling you, is the best final episode of all dramas’ final ones. All kinds of emotions got the best of me. It was like I forgot what happened before that.

Although I still think this review is not enough to put my feelings into words, I want to thank the production team, especially the writer and the director. Thank you for making my life brighter with this AMAZING drama, especially during this overwhelming year of 2020. It has a special place in my heart. I can never look at other romance dramas the same as I look at this one. :’)
