Mr. Virgin is a very strange romantic comedy from Hong Kong. A 30-year-old man has been told his entire life that he will die if he is intimate before he turns 30. Just after celebrating this milestone and getting married, he finds out he is a year younger than he thought and therefore can't consummate his marriage. The side story is that his wife does make-up for dead people and she doesn't want him or anyone else to know about it. The story and acting are okay, I did laugh out loud a couple of times and it is very 80's but the thing that put me off this film is the rape storyline. The main protagonist is at a club, meets three women and proceeds to be raped by them in an alley, this is done in a lighthearted way (you do not see anything sexual or violent) and provides comedic moments after the event but I just found it distasteful, I realise that it is from a different time but it ruined an otherwise okay movie for me.

Touching, family drama. A young couple falls pregnant aged 17 & have a son with a terminal illness. The film takes place with the son as a 16-year-old, recounting how his parents met & coming to terms with his fate. Very sentimental & sad but beautiful in a way too. I don't normally watch these types of depressing films & I was very hesitant to watch this but there is a lot of humour in this film, I actually laughed out loud quite a few times, so don't be put off if this isn't the type of thing you'd normally watch.

A girl running away from an exam jumps into a puddle, goes back in time to the Joseon dynasty (stay with me) & falls for the King. A time-travelling, historical, romantic, comedy, drama, what more could you want?! Short, sweet & powerful. It's only 2 episodes & definitely leaves you wanting more but think of it as a movie. The only thing wrong with it, is that it's so short lol. WARNING: Doo Joon will make you swoon <3 <3 <3 It is very rare that any film or series will end perfectly but this is one of the few. The ending is absolutely perfect in my opinion. PERFECT!

I loved this and hated it at the same time. A young lady has a heart transplant & goes to a beautiful island to recuperate. Whilst there she meets a lovely young man who plays the trumpet to the sea. This is a romantic, soppy, melancholic, tear-jerker of a film, so be warned lol. I actually didn't mind the romantic build-up of this film (for once), I thought it was done beautifully & I enjoyed seeing the relationship between the two leads develop. Unfortunately, right from the beginning of the film, you can work out the "twist" which takes away a lot of the enjoyment (in my opinion) & makes it even sadder than it already is. Overall, the acting is decent, the scenery is beautiful and if you enjoy melancholy films then you will probably like this one. Personally, I think the predictability is what really lets this film down & the ending could have been a lot better.

A fascinating drama based on a true story. Shows what happened during the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923, the Massacre of Koreans and the trial of Park Yeol & Fumiko Kaneko to cover it up. This film is based on a period of history I knew very little about but after watching it I will definitely be doing some research into the history told here. The story is brutal and upsetting but leaves you with a sense that justice will be done in the end. Definitely deserves a watch no matter what but if you enjoy films based on real-life or historical dramas you should like this.

A girl starts a new year at school but trouble soon finds its way into her teen life, then almost magically an app appears on her phone, 'Revenge Note'. When she enters someone's name on the app misfortune falls on that person. The app is not actually a main part of the story, it's a very exaggerated high school teen life story, which of course includes a bit of romance. This drama seemed very promising to start with, I liked the main protagonists and the story was interesting but I'm afraid to say it went nowhere (hence the lack of stars), which was disappointing as I did really quite like it. The two major plotlines I was interested in was what happened with Cha Eun Woo (member of Astro who plays himself in the show, quite a bit of time was devoted to him at the beginning and then his storyline wasn't even slightly resolved ????) and who is the master of the Revenge Note (you don't find out, even right at the end it teases you about this and it just made me really angry ????). If you are watching because Cha Eun Woo is a main character, he isn't, he is most definitely a part of the supporting cast (he isn't even in all the episodes). It makes me a bit angry (doing that quite a bit today lol) because it seems like they are just trying to get more viewers by advertising this handsome idol is a main star when he's not ????. Anyway, the good news is if you like Eun Woo you may be a fan of Astro and the whole group makes an appearance! That was definitely the highlight of the series for me! Although Eun Woo is not on screen as much I would have liked, when he is, the show seems 10 times better and he is pretty much perfect (yet another reason why his story being cut short is annoying). I'm also doing something I never thought I would, I'm giving a whole star just for Eun Woo ???? cos he deserves it ????. Finally, episode 12 is just a recap of the entire season, which made the teaser for who the master of the Revenge Note was at the end of the previous episode infuriating, I actually thought we would get the answer in the last episode but there was no payoff, it was just a recap! ???? #Anger #Infuriated #Disappointed

Two very different women who have been unlucky in love swap very different homes for a week, will they find happiness in each others lives? It is basically a remake of the Hollywood movie 'The Holiday' (starring Cameron Diaz & Kate Winslet) with some slight plot changes (and they're in China instead of America & England). I would say it's not quite as good as 'The Holiday', it actually gets a bit depressing three-quarters of the way through but there is a happy ending. So if you like your rom-coms with a dash of the serious then this may be for you.

Guy's fiance dies, he sees a Chinese girl online that is her doppelganger and invites her to visit him in Japan. This is a TV movie, that's all I think I need to say really. It is an okay film but I wouldn't choose to watch it again. The plot is thin & predictable and the backstory & characters are underdeveloped.

A woman with a seemingly troubled past gets referred to an amazing therapist who likes to hypnotise his patients to deal with their issues. There appears to be something dark hidden in her past that she has buried in her subconscious which the doctor must unravel, but will his secrets be unravelled too?! This starts out as a run-of-the-mill psychological thriller, gets super confusing mid-way through & ends with some fantastic twists & turns you wont see coming. It gave me a slight 'The Sixth Sense' vibe. It's a very good film which I would definitely watch again.

Nerd boy meets not so smart girl, they hate each other but are forced to spend time together, start having feelings, have a huge misunderstanding, it's all very sad then a lovely reunion occurs. Standard rom-com territory set against the backdrop of college stress, male egos & female feistiness. Cute, fun, nerdy rom-com drama. Not the best film in the world - has a few plot holes and lacks some character development for the supporting cast but if you want a not too serious, nice, rom-com type of film then you can't go far wrong with this.

WOW! The 2017 Championships are amazing, I would have given 10 stars but there is no futsal & the archery didn't seem quite as exciting as usual to me. The rhythmic gymnastics & aerobic dance are fantastic additions and show the idols put a huge amount of effort into this! Love it! Long may it continue!

Long Meet-Cute

A very short film (13 minutes) about a young woman that travels to the Chinese countryside. A very short film (13 minutes) about a young woman that travels to the Chinese countryside. It's kind of a long meet-cute. It is a sweet little film but I feel like it's part of a tourism campaign that doesn't quite work as a film. At the end, it says it is based on a true story which is great but I feel that this story could definitely have been made into a full-length feature & it would have had much more of an impact on me.

This is a short film (not much longer than an hour) and as you can probably guess from the title, it's about a vampire. A 500-year-old vampire catches the scent of her long-dead female companion but it comes from a very modern, young man. Will she be able to control herself around him? A very cute & quirky short film which I absolutely love. It starts off as a bit of a comedy but turns into a super sweet love story. Song Kang is so adorable as the young man who becomes attracted to a beautiful woman he doesn't realise is a vampire. Okay, it's not without its shortcomings, some strands of the plot are not developed as fully as they might be in a longer film but for a short film (and I don't usually watch short films) it tells a wonderful story & I was left wanting more. This may have been better as a drama to develop the characters & story more but I personally hope there will be a sequel, I loved it that much!

Quite a strange drama/film. A man has some bad luck and ends up working for a loan shark then to get some money back for the shark he ends up playing for an ice hockey team. I don't think the story was very strong which is a shame because the acting was good. Kwak Dong Yeon was part of the supporting cast, which is also a shame because one of the best parts of this, was him and Lee Kwang Soo on the railway - it was definitely my favourite part of this drama. I think this probably could have been better as a full-length series, with more time to develop the plot.

A man who is a master of disguise takes his brother's place after he is murdered to try to find his killer. I agree with a previous reviewer that this film is very confusing, the jumps in time make it quite difficult to follow & you have to be paying attention at all times or you will get lost in the plot. The technique of never seeing our main protagonist's true face was inspired, although it took me a while to get used to it, it's a shame that this was also a part of the film's downfall - it was confusing when you thought you were watching one character and it turned out to be another. This film definitely had an interesting concept but I wasn't sold on the execution. It may have been better if it was longer and the characters were developed more.
