A Happy Ending but A UNnecessary one

This special episode was focused on their wedding day but where is the story? What was the purpose of dragging it for 4 episodes when everything could have been done in 1 episode? I personally feel that it was a stupid special episode. I don't mean it was really bad but I feel like it was unnecessary. I know the whole original story is about their marriage but wouldn't it be better if they had shown it in the original story.


To be honest from the first episode of this special I didn't like the concept. Well definitely it's good to see them after graduation but there were so many unnecessary things. Can't we just have some happy moments that would actually make sense without any third person interference. They wanna get married so just focus on that. And even after so many days spending time together can't Kuea trust Lian? Communication is really important for a relationship to be successful. That was kinda disappointed. The happy ending didn't feel like a happy ending but more felt like a force happy ending. Marriage isn't the happy ever after of a relationship. Why they had to rush their marriage like this? Is it really all about facing difficulty and solving it together? It's really old theme for 2023.


Comedy scenes were robbed from us with NC scenes. Like there should be a proper balance of this thing but there wasn't. It's a drama special of a rom com drama. So it should be like a rom com. Last episodes product placement took a lot of time which made me uninterested in the last part and I end up skipping most of the scenes. I think everyone acting was okay but Khondiao's acting sucks.


On the other hand the supporting characters saved this drama for me. Syn Nuer supporting each other and making their relationship better was wholesome. Foei steal the show again. He did a lot of hard work to make their wedding success. He definitely deserves a virtual hug.


Well that's all. It was my personal opinion. While watching Cutie Pie the series I used to feel excited whenever the new episodes would air. I used to wait for the upcoming episodes but for this special one I didn't feel the same. For it was a disappointed. They could focus on their wedding with a better plot. It was overall good but definitely a big no for me. If you enjoyed the drama you can give it a try cause who knows you might like it.

Sex Education Thailand - A Different Attempt Taken By GMMTV

It wasn't planned that I would watch this drama. But when the first episode released I just couldn't control myself. Now if you have seen the first episode you will realize that that very one episode made this drama very very special. It was cute but complicated which will keep you till the end.

As a early teenager when I found out what really sex is all about I felt really disgusted. But only later I found out most of the people did too. Haha

I have to say that all the characters were perfectly written. The concept was clear with a mystery in it. Which makes the drama more interesting is as we get to know each characters better each episodes. Many different topics were discussed in this drama. Especially different kinds of sexual preferences and how the society reacts to them.

Taking about the characters

It was Just Between THem

And we waited fu*king 3 years for this. Like they really needed to kill an awesome manhwa vibe bl story like this. Like I had a better plot in my mind.

Both of the characters were swimmers. How awesome the story could have been. Team's sleeping disorder could have a much better reason. Why agrhhhhhhhh Why?

Every episode was pure torture for me. I kept saying myself it would get better it would get better. But it was all an illusion.

LIKES
(+) Side characters like ABC group were more entertaining than the lead couple.
(+) Wann and Tul story was wholesome. They had a better plot and understanding relationship.
(+) Manaow stole the show again. Also like her love story. I wish she had more screen time


DISLIKES
I don't even wanna start. Most of the things were really irritating. Specially acting.

It was the most popular drama of November to January on MDL. Not even any Kdrama could bet it but what was the point when it's a disappointment.


Last but not the least thank god it ended.

For the 10 years they played the "Previous Film Love" but the happiness lied in the "New Film Love"

I know it sounds a little weird but this was the concept which made me excited about this. When I first knew about this drama it wasn't planned to watch this. But as since December 2022 I had decided that I would explore Dramaland more this year so I forced myself to watch this and I don't regret my decision.


STORY

In the first episode the backstory was shown in detail except the main themes which mainly were spoilers. The story progresses and shows us every characters life story. The flashbacks were done perfectly. It shows us how a murderer can change everyone's life involved to that. And how a lie can destroy our lives and all the suffering is our families.


ACTING

Kudos to all the actors. Everyone did a great job. I have seen Off, Ohm, Koy, So, Champ and Nink's acting previously in different kinds of character. In this drama mostly their characters were sad but realistic. It was my first time seeing Tu and View. I have to say that Tu still has to learn more expressions to different feeling. Her face was the same throughout the whole show. If you mute the sound and turn of the captions and see Tu's acting you will not be able to understand if she is sad, angry or happy. She is still a newbie but really hyped because of F4. And it's totally unfair. On the other hand View was awesome. You will feel the efforts in her acting. Two more people to mention. The actor who played the character of Mai and little Phukhao. They stole the show for me in terms of acting. Pluem and Phoo 's acting balanced it for me.

MUSIC

It was good but I don't know much about it. Cause I usually don't feel excited about the OST of an drama or movie.


LIKES

Honestly I didn't expect anything from this show. It was a forced watch so it's all my fault if it's not good. But It was a decent shoe. It's not the drama for which I was excited every week but if you binge watch this you will find this exciting as the mysteries are disclosed you can watch the next episode immediately.


PHUKHAO: He loved Mai a lot. Mai was his hero, his inspiration. It's was really traumatic for him losing Mai. The anger inside him is understandable. This may not be the character which will give you comfort. But Phukhao will protect you and love you till his last breath. Even though Mai isn't alive anymore but he always was in Phukhao's heart. He wants to do everything his brother couldn't do. He is always there for his loved ones.

Brothers Rivalry Done Wrong

The concept of brothers becoming enemies is such a common thing is dramaland. But if it's not done right it would make the whole drama a big flop that most of the people would regret watching it. Brothers Rivalry is anyway a risky theme to work with cause many people doesn't like this theme.

With such an interesting cast GMMTV really did some shit. The start of this drama was good but in episode 4 everyone could understand where this was really going.

I personally feel the first episode was an okay one with the proper introduction of the main and supporting characters. I liked the relations between the Li, Korn and Win. But did it last long? NOoooooooooooo
U know everything was going okay even though Korn's father was a total insane person but the main villain of their life is none other than Rung. I really didn't like her character from the beginning. Like girl was so much annoying. She gets involved with people life so much. Does she even understand the meaning of privacy and space? Like girl you aren't two years old kid. She and only she is the reason for all her miseries.


From the start till the end we don't get any character development for the characters which was annoying and stupid. Just for a stupid bitch two brothers relationship was fucked up. The conflict between the brothers were so big but the reason behind it was so silly.


Let's talk about the script writer who is none other than New. His ideas are so stupid. He really should stay away from GMMTV.


The supporting characters were the only good thing of this drama. Their stories were more logical and realistic. Let's not even talk about the father.

So this drama isn't anything special. So it wouldn't really matter if you guys skip this one. Although Ohm and Perth together could have been a big serve but it really wasn't.

Stranger's to Friend's to Stranger's

I have not been writing review for almost 7 months now and strangely the last review I had written was also Ohm's drama Double Savage. Double Savage was so disappointed that I had to share my thoughts somewhere. Now even though I really don't wanna write any review but I really have to do this because of Ohm and Wednesday Club because they deserves it.

From the first trailer to the original trailer I literally had zero expectations from Wednesday Club. Even the first few episodes felt boring but with every new episodes the excitement started increasing. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The main leads were really suitable for their characters. We could see them in different characters and another version of their acting.

One the main charms of this show was May and Peem. When Satang and Film was replaced in place of Joong and Jane I was really disheartened. But guys Satang did a great job portraying the character of Peem. And Satang and Piploy had great chemistry together. And Man I really wish Jane wasn't replaced because I wanted to see Ohm with Jane as we already have seen Ohm and Film as a couple before.


Maybe this wasn't perfect drama with a great storyline. But important issues like Friendship, Love, Marriage, Abortion, Mental health, Politics rivalry etc were discussed and portrayed in a great way. And in the end it was far better than many other dramas that got higher rating than this one.

I truly enjoyed it and if you guys give it a chance instead of looking at the bad reviews, I personally think you also might like it!

Her meaning of love was slow motion but he saw her in fast forward

This two concept of slow motion and fast forward was an important element of this movie. It's really not about that how you saw it. If you are in love then it's just love.

This movie concept and story wasn't anything new but the self loving thing made this one a memorable. You don't need to make yourself beautiful for others you need to make yourself better for you.

Their love was simple. If you love someone you will accept their own self. You won't wanna change anything. In this concept I would say the love triangle was done right. They were made for each other and also ended up together.

At some point I did feel like I have watched this storyline before many times but it wasn't completely same. It had a different vibe.

It's perfect for a gloomy day to brighten up your mood.

ChenNhai Express

Well it was losing your braincells journey. You don't need to use your brain to watch this series. Only thing that is good about this drama was Ai. Well it had a great starting but failed at everything. It didn't make any difference or sense in anyway. The fluffy things were good at first but got bored at last. And why they added the side characters story when they wouldn't show those stories properly. And what the hell was the point of this drama??????

I wouldn't recommend this drama to anyone. There are other ton's of dramas much better than this. It was not so bad but definitely not good for currently watching drama. But that's it. Definitely no for binge watching.

The Progress of Falling in Love aka The First Love

I didn't read the synopsis and I thought Nanon was the one chasing his senior until I watched the first episode and it was other way around.

The story is really simple and cute. Belle one of the most beautiful senior of school always get every guy she wants to have but this time she failed to do so because of S, her junior. Breaking up with her ex boyfriend, he gives Belle a challenge to win over S and if Belle could do so in a year he will stop approaching Belle. Accepting the challenge Belle and her two best friends do many crazy things to make S fall in love with Belle but S is someone who doesn't even want to know what love actually feels like. When Belle actually falls in love with S, she stop approaching him. But at that time S has fallen in love with Belle.


This is pretty much the whole story with some additional plot twists. The interactions between Belle and S was actually really cute and sweet. Friendship of Belle and her friends were genuine. Overall it was a tennage love story with the same elements but still it seems fresh. It wasn't cliche at all, they didn't try to act mature rather their age.


Supporting characters were good and everyone did a great job in acting. Taewin stole some spotlight for me. This guy seemed timid at first but not only he is intelligent but also learnt about love real quick. It was fun to see him whenever he appeared on screen.


Let's talk about Nanon, he was only 16 years old and it was one his early roles as a main lead. He was good at acting even though he was so young. Isn't it a slap to the people who defend their favourite actors acting skills saying it's their early roles and they will get better later. Nanon did justice to his acting and show the true feelings that how a nerd tennage boy actually falls in love. Thanaerng was always good in her every roles and she did a pretty good job in here too.

There might a reason why people would hesitate to watch this, because it's a 2016 drama, but it doesn't feel like old and cliche drama.

And it has Nanon in it, young cute Nanon who would miss it!

What's Your Three Words To Forever?

I started watching this much randomly on Netflix. When I first started I was confused if it's a documentary or something like that because the starting was an interview of different couples who have been married for a long time.

It's a story of three different couples. As the story progresses we can see how their relationship is. Woman are the glue that sticks her family but is it really easy for her. This movie also shows how important is to communicate with each other. Not just between the couples but also between parents and children. Also marriage is a really important thing. This thing definitely shouldn't be rushed.

This was like a warm hug for a bad day. A decent watch.

She was his greatest Love

This is my first Filipino Movie. Well the storyline was really unexpected. I literally didn't think it would be like this. This movie has something really special about itself. The story was somehow new and different.

STORY
About the sudden but great love story of Kenji and Athena. Athena Abigail was diagnosed with a disease and was dying. So Abigail break up with Kenji. Kenji doesn't wanna let her go so he fake dates with the same named girl Athena. She was a heart patient. While fake dating Kenji and Athena falls in love but Abigail couldn't bear the pain of her broken heart anymore. Kenji finds out the true about Abigail so both Athena and Kenji decides that Kenji should stay with Abigail. Years later because of Kelay and Ken they were reunited.

Things I Like

. The way the story progress.
. The Plot Twist.
. Ken and Kelay recreating Kenji and Athena's dance scene.
. Ken proposing Kelay to marry him at the airport.
. The music.
. Backstory was perfectly shown.
. Kenji and Athena's outfit.
. Kenji and Athena's love story.
. Kenji truly loving Abigail after marrying her.
. Kenji being happy after holding Ken for the first time.


This movie is really good and beautiful. Highly recommend.

"I'm 34 but you're still 18"

I got to know about this movie while writing my MDL'ers Favorite Korean Movies article. This movie was in the top 10 most awaited upcoming Korean movies section. At that time this movie had a orange poster which looked really cool and beautiful at the same time.


So when this was finally relaesed it really created a lot of buzz. I mean literally everyone was talking about this movie. It was like talk of the town. I couldn't open my Instagram cause everyone was posting about this movie. My Instagram Fanpage was in a more difficult situation. All my mutuals were editing about this movie on the other hand I really wanted to watch it without any spoilers but I couldn't cause I had ongoing exam. Unfortunately Instagram spoiled the ending of the movie anyway I decided to watch this movie once my exam finishes.


Watching the trailer I felt like another movie in which the girl falls in love with her best friends and ironically the crush also falls in love with the girl. But it wasn't really about that..................

I really love that even though I knew about the ending how I love the story progress. It's really unpredictable. The summer scenes. The cute interactions.


STORY

About the last year of 20th century of Bo Ra's life which became a special memory of her 21st century life.


ACTING

I always feel like playing the role of high school students are a little different than the other roles. It needs a lot of emotions. Every and each actors acting really made everything feeling magical.


CAST

My first time seeing the leads. I have seen Kim Yoo Jung in Instagram reels and YouTube Fm but I never realized until this movie that she is such a great Actress. I think the casting was perfect as we can feel their chemistry with each other.


Although I have gave this 7 rating overall after thinking like thousand times. Everything was this movie was nice but does the ending even make any sense. So many unanswered questions. And it just ended like I don't know it ruined everything for me. It's okay for one time watching but I definitely will never rewatch this. They just ruined our summer vibe comfort movie. I wish he could meet the 21st century of Bo Ra.


Memories matter and stay with us forever.
