(mslee's thoughts) Just Between Lovers - First Thoughts


#justbetweenlovers

After watching this week's episodes I can say that this drama is promising. It is one of those dramas that shows emotional struggles and as an outsider (viewer) you keep watching to know more. Junho and Won Jin A are both good in portraying their characters. Their chemistry is also nice. If you have watched Secret (Love) you will get the same vibe in this drama.

Four characters ๐Ÿ‘‰perhaps getting tangled in romance. Like she loves him๐Ÿ‘‰he likes her๐Ÿ‘‰she loves another guy๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘ˆhe loves her back.๐Ÿ˜›

Right now I can't wait for episodes 3&4 already. The romance part between lead characters is slowly getting interesting. ๐Ÿ˜ป

Two souls who experienced the same tragedy. Two souls who are still trying to move forward from painful and scary memories. The emotional scars they got from the past changed them. Will they ever heal from the trauma?

(mslee's thoughts) Black - Final Thoughts

#black final thoughts...

I think the drama left a mixed impression on viewers as a whole. Some like it very much while I can't exactly figure out if the story as a whole is something worth watching again. I have already wrote that the storyline was kind of messy and there are lots of twists that I think is unecessary. There were too many incidents that happened surrounding the backstory of the main leads. Two main events in the past were used as the center point of the story while a grim reaper happened to enter a human body to look for his runaway partner. The story was a tough one to follow from the beginning until some revelations tied up loose ends. Still..most of the twists were random as the romance between Black and Ha Ram blossomed. Anyway...it was later revealed that Joon was 444 who entered Moo Gang's body where his heart now resides. Yes..the mother was the one who killed Joon in order to save Moo Gang. In the end there is no Moo Gang ( he died when he was shot at the mall) coz Joon totally exists in his body as 444.

I just wonder why the story did not show Moo Gang died in the end when 444 aka Joon left the body to receive his punishment. The story only showed that his existence ( was it Joon or Moo Gang) vanished in everyone's memory as if he did not exist. Let us not forget that Ha Ram did not realized that Moo Gang whom she loves was actually Joon when he finally learned the truth. So..who was it that Ha Ram and the others forget or erased from their memory?

One thing I am not comfortable with in kdramas is how death always seems to be the answer or easy way out when things get harder and life seems miserable. Suicide is like the answer when there seems to be no hope. Almost every culprit or villain that the story had revealed as twist in the drama ended dying. They were not punished for the evil deeds that they have committed. Only Oh Man Ho who was later on revealed manipulated funds and documents of the company got imprisoned and seems to be the only one paying for his crime which ironically is the least evil of those other culprits. With so many twists in the latter episodes Man Ho was thought of as the culprit for most part of the story. I wonder why the writer did not pursue this path but created other villains or masterminds.

The ending was a consolation for shippers coz a grim reaper can not be with a human especially with Ha Ram who will know and see that Moo Gang has black shadow inside him if the writer tried to make the love story as is. Oh..and it was Joon after all. Ah...this is really confusing in a way so glad Ha Ram was spared of knowing who she loved in the end.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Time jump reminded me of Titanic. Rose lived her life when Jack died. Like Ha Ram...she lived her life as a wife to a nameless and faceless husband, had children I supposed and grandchildren. Only Leo aka another grim reaper knew about what happened to 444 aka Joon as he was instructed to remain by Ha Ram's side as a friend and protector in place of Joon and to live as a human for a long time.

When finally she died....Joon was there to fetch her soul. I wish she knew it was Joon. Or is that unecessary?

Yes..seems like a happily ever after in the next life for Ha Ram and Black.
Ending was kind of poignant...last scene I could say beautiful if not original.

(mslee's thoughts) First Impression - Black Knight

Since I wrote a short impression on the drama Black Knight in my Facebook page I would like to share that post here in my blog. Just quick thoughts...

On episode 1

Black Knight - Kim Rae Won is full of charisma๐Ÿ’• he has few lines in episode 1, more on reminiscing and pondering but still his presence on the screen is worth appraising every second. His eyes and face are expressive and yet so very natural. And the thing that makes this drama appealing is that his chemistry with Shin Se Kyung in those short scenes with her towards the ending of the episode was so beautiful. ๐Ÿ‘

The drama gives off the vibe of a fairy tale romance that we used to read. Like there seems to be an immortal witch/ fairy godmother... A second lead villain that also looks like she lived through times and will not stop until she gets what she wants๐Ÿ‘‰Kim Rae Won aka Soo Ho. Then here we have a charming prince who lives in a castle...used to have scars ( like beast / beauty and the beast vibe) but now gone. Is he our girl's prince charming? Or is their story more on the tragic romance kind? Like star crossed lovers? Who is he exactly?

Although we were shown snippets of each character's past lives and how they are all tangled together as fate made them, there are still lots of intriguing story we need to find out. But I am feeling the romance here. Like in a fairy tale๐Ÿ’•

First impression...

On episode 2

Just finished watching ep 2 #blackknight.

An hour of pure pleasure as my heart flutters and finding myself smiling as I feast on Kim Rae Won and his sweet stares and lines towards Shin Se Kyung. It has been a while since a drama showed pure romance between 2 leads. An hour of revelation on other characters that somehow answered part of the intrigues in the storyline. 2 immortals and 2 reincarnated characters will be the center of the story. And I think there will also be revenge towards the man who killed Soo Ho's father and stole wealth from Hae Ra's family.

Well..I am quite satisfied by the episode even if I was left wanting more. I am in love with the idea of falling in love in this drama. ๐Ÿ’• KRW surely can make a woman's heart beat faster and his stares melt a lady's defenses. He is the perfect #blackknight ๐Ÿ˜œ❤❤❤

Hoping to write more on this drama.

(Mslee's thoughts) Temperature of Love - Final Thoughts


Finally done watching Temperature of Love.๐Ÿ’•

From the same writer of High Society and Doctors of which I both watched.. (Adding Can We Get Married) I think this drama is not far off from her previous works. She tackled mostly on the emotional struggles of the main leads and gives enough justification for antagonist / second leads to be somehow understood by viewers. Although the writer goes on to show how far the second leads or antagonist can go as far as making situations intriguingly frustrating, yet in the end she wants a happy ending for all characters and reconcillations are possible for all.


Temperature of Love has given viewers all the romantic feels everyone longs for in a relationship. Jung Sun is almost a perfect boyfriend and if Hyun Soo makes viewers disappointed and feels frustrating she still makes it okay as a girlfriend who despite difficult situations and wavering managed to make it through and be firm in love. I think her mistake in letting him go once was a burden she faced everyday that when finally given a chance the longing to make it perfect this time makes her cling to a relationship that wants to protect it. Even unknowingly suffocates Jung Sun with wanting him to completely reassure her of his love. With different childhood background there will certainly be different emotions involved and how one grew up will be how one tackles emotions. And i understood Jung Sun on how he can't easily opens up about his past. But of course all ends well as the writer wants a happy ending for her otp.


As for CEO Park... As much as I felt irked by his character I think was unnecessary, once again the writer showed how the third party in this story truly feels and what would he have done if she is in his shoes knowing he is likely a man who pursues until the end and never gives up easily hence him being a successful businessman. So I give writernim an applause even though I really felt CEO Park was being an a** for not backing down and being a gentleman and a good friend who took loss in a good way. Making him more human and close to reality is what makes his character loveable and annoyingly irritating at the same time. Glad he knew he started a gap and almost break what is precious to the people he thinks he treasure the most as family and took a step back. By doing so he invisibly somehow helped the two to find their own way back in each other's arms.


Surprisingly I liked Hong Ah and her childish yet strong personality. Her character showed development and in the process she matured in handling romance. She gave some of the best scenes in the drama with her continuous tantrums that won her her fight against possible injustice that she could suffer as a beginner in the writer's world of drama. While she makes it impossible for the director and CEO Park to put her in her place she showed also how she will stand firm in her rights not to be manipulated. Which was totally opposite of Hyun Soo who is never feisty as her. I also like how time goes by and finally she realized her love towards a friend turned into romantic love. With Won Joon I also like that the writer showed how love can never be replaced by forced love by turning to someone else when everything revolves to that one particular person...aka Hong Ah.


I also find Jung Sun's mom refreshingly likeable as a characater in kdrama. Her insecurities she makes up for clinging to men who entered her life and at the same time childishly burden her son financially. Without knowing how to live her own life indenpendent of men she selfishly makes it hard for her son to understand her pains and her suffering as a mother and as a wife who settled early in marriage with the thought all will be like in a fairy tale. But reality hit her hard literaly! I love how Jung Sun despite having broken family stood by his mom against his father. It was after all adult's problem. But of course violence can not be excused whatever reasons behind it. Well the writer is a possitive person and decided to make this family forgive and somehow forget pains of the past. Reconcillations are not fully dealt with but acceptance of who they are and what each meant towards the other makes them still a family. They have to move on to start afresh. Just like his mom who finally realized what she wants in her life and started a business. Now she has her own little world without necessarily having a man in her life but still find happiness. It was all a matter of trusting and believing in herself. I love how writernim showed this side of the story where one can start again despite numerous failures in life. Sometimes it is not really romance that can fulfill one's life. There are things more to romance.๐Ÿ˜œ


As for the other couple in the drama who are like cat and mouse (tom&jerry) there is that kind of romance in real life where two people start off in the same vibe. Like everything one does irritates the other and vice versa. Like teasing to the point of annoyance makes one happy and the other crazy mad. But in the end it is just the process of how romance builds up between them. Like they finally realized that they are exactly the opposite of each other.. But at the same time compliments each other in an ironic way. Many can relate to these two on how their "can't tolerate each other" can surprisingly be a blossoming romance.๐Ÿ˜‚


Hmmm..i think so far I have covered all the important things this drama has showed to viewers. Happy and sad moments both make the drama a nice one. Something that will make a viewer remembers the story of each character. Most of all Temperature of Love shows different degree of love and romance. We felt how it is to be in love again.
