1st Impression: Medical Top Team

first off, i’m not very good at first impressions. i probably won’t keep up with the updates on each episode because i’d rather watch the drama, not type with the drama. that’s what soompi is for, for me to lurk, spazz, and have a common place that i know i belong and to see if it’s just me feeling that way or im just crazy. my coworkers think the latter.

anyhow…..i’m just watching this now because:

a. aside from Jejoongwon, i shy away from medical dramas. you can probably guess why i watched the above mentioned drama, if you haven’t got a clue….watch Vampire Prosecutor 1 & 2.

b. viki didn’t have it available at the time i wanted to watch it.
c. well – i can’t get my head out of TMS’ kingdom. i’m still in it…but i moved to the attic.

i thought i’d give it a try when i saw it on viki today. my kids seem to be tired and went to bed early. i’m not inspired to make any fan art for TMS…i’m having an addict’s block. so i watched the 1st episode. again, i’m not recapping, just ranting about how i feel. okay?

male leads…im not spazzing yet. i don’t even know who’s going to end up with Joo Yeong – i haven’t followed the news bites that gets released. i haven’t been on the soompi thread yet either.

JRW – the sole reason [for now] i’m watching episode 2 tomorrow night.

overall for the 1st episode, it’s a good intro for the characters at play. i am for sure investing my time with this show. and ratings shmatings…i don’t care about that. i like this show and im watching it.

Rounding up my fave leading ladies

i’ve been watching kdramas since 2008. i can’t believe that i was watching Yoona on a daily drama before i even knew she is in SNSD!. i think it’s safe to say now my top leading ladies are…..

#3 Jung Ryeo Won

i watched her for the 1st time in Ja Myung Go. even though the ratings tanked, and subs weren’t available at the time, i waited for this to air here in the US. unfortunately, i haven’t seen any of her movies, but ever since JMG, i’ve watched every drama she’s in.

#2 Kim Sun Ah

i watched her for the 1st time in City Hall. oh my gosh, she’s like a goddess to me. even though i’ve only seen her in one drama, i’m a fan and always wishes the best for her future projects.

#1 Gong Hyo Jin

bet you knew i was going to say that. she really is just lovely. i watched her for the 1st time in The Greatest Love. she’s the reason i was eager to watch The Master’s Sun. now, i’m off to figuring out how to watch her movies. i guess i’m going to Yesasia and buy some dvds. i watched bits of pieces of Pasta just to see if there’s any similarities in her acting. this actress, really is the best in Korea. you can give her any character, and she’ll portray it for you.

I take it back….

i decided to watch episode 8 of Secret to try to get away with my little troubles at home. well, what do you know? i ended being looped in. usually, i’d know by the 2nd episode if it’s something i’ll pursue, or if i really really want to watch…i’d go up to episode 6. i really gave it a chance, and episode 8 was the kicker.

i just wanted to say that yeah – i’ll be following this series to the end.

It’s not a Secret anymore….

taken from my post @soompi thread on 10/13:
what do you think? i’m really curious how this story will play out….i skipped a lot of parts from ep 1 – 4..but by the ending, i got curious….for sure though im not delusional about this yet…but i do like that i have that urge to come back and finish the series.

i watched the first two episodes before i started lurking at the soompi thread. maybe two weeks before that post? for a while i wanted to post what i really feel about the drama, but given that they know how delusional i am about TMS, i opted not to say anything. but, in today’s episode 7, when SY told MH that he’s childish…that’s how i’ve been feeling towards the drama all along!!!! even the writers knew that [unless that’s the idea]. i get that it starts out as revenge then blossoming into love, i see now that DH has gone to the dark side, and i can tell that SY secretly loves MH.

when i first watched this, i thought okay, a 1st grader doesn’t like a girl, then subconsciously likes her but like a normal boy would, teases her to death. that’s fine…but, we’re talking about grown ups here. there’s gotta be a way to get your revenge out other than making her cry every episode. then on episode 4….yeah i got really curious. there’s that potential to get me hooked. it’s sort of working?

i still found myself skipping scenes and i’m at episode 7 now. and by the looks of the ending, it seems that MH is still carrying out his revenge….is it still toward DH now? how will it affect YJ?

so…..after 7 episodes, i don’t know if i really want to stick to this show until the end. i just don’t think it’s an “all kill” from the cast, story, and the ost for me. this is right around the time frame where i either stick to the drama no matter what or jump ship. i’ll wait until tomorrow’s episode and if there’s no other posts regarding this drama, then yeah i’ve abandoned the secret ship.

however, before the hardcore fans tear me down…..i must say that the main leads’ acting is superb. i’d be lying if i say that YJ scenes didn’t make me cry. my goodness, MH’s stare – omg i’m hyperventilating. don’t forget DH…gawd i was mad with him when he’s yelling at his parents, and yeah i shed a tear too when he cried.

at least my feelings about this drama isn’t a secret anymore.

Review: The Master’s Sun

It’s been two weeks. I’m not ready to let go and review this drama. Posting a review means it’s really the end. I promise, there will be an end. Right now, let me enjoy re-watching the episodes with no interruptions and pressure to post something @soompi.

A review is coming soon.

Addicted to The Master’s Sun

it’s been two weeks since this show ended, i haven’t written a review, although i’ve written a couple of intros for the fan project. why? because i’m in denial that it’s over. well it’s over in Korea. it’s still airing somewhere around the globe. so what do i do? i make fan arts. the last drama i did this for was YAB…i think i made one. then SKKS where i made some .gifs [i have to find those to link here].

for the fan project, i made 12 entries. i thought i was done, my kids thought i was done. hahaha
