Hi @vivi_1485

sorry I didn’t answered you, but exactly 8 days ago I ended up in the hospital, and was too sick to log in to this site. I got to see only 2 episodes and so far too much dialogue between the male characters and nothing much going on; will try to catch up soon.

Park Bo Gum has such a manly voice in this drama that it feels so strange, like is not him lol. He’s so cute.

oh my goodness! Hope you’re doing better now, stay safe and healthy! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

cute but with a manly voice?! this I’ve got to check out!

@vivi_1485
Thank you so much for your well wishes.

You must see him in this very manly voice role. So far I saw episode 3 and 4, and I can say it has room for improvement bc I feel they talk too much, and in the romance department is flatlining on me (going too slow and too dry). Let me know what you think when you see it.

I’m watching “Love and Destiny” right now. I tend to wait until a Chinese costume drama is completed for awhile before starting. I was drawn to this because I loved Ni Ni in “Rise of the Phoenixes”. I have never seen Chang Chen before, he’s an actor from Taiwan who stars mostly in movies, but I must say tsundere describes his character’s personality.

Like you, I really enjoyed “Train to Busan”. I started to watch the Korean movie “Rampant”, but was so disturbing I couldn’t even watch 5 minutes of it.

Remember the [really] old movies with Boris Karloff as “Frankenstein”, Bela Lugosi as the vampire, and Lon Chaney Jr. as the Wolfman?!
I remember watching these as reruns on TV [yes, they were all in black and white] in the early 60’s when is was still in 4th or 5th grade, scared the daylights out of me.


Boris Karloff with Elsa Lanchester in “Bride of Frankenstein”. This movie was released in 1935. My mom was only 7-years old at that time.

I finished watching the dance of the phoenix, a bit different, and a chinese drama 30 episodes!!
other than the length, it was really good


#615

oh yes those old dramas none like them! thanks for the reminder!

I JUST FINISHED [MY NAME IS BUSABA]. I hope more ppl watch this Thai drama. Amazing cooking lessons but ingredients impossible to find here in U.S. Gorgeous male characters some cute kisses, an ending that was perfect but no kissing (u can’t have it all sigh)

Starting ‘‘Flower of Evil’’ and is going on like the perfect drama it has always been. A bit too violent for those who are too squeamish but I’m not; so is fine on my end. GO and watch it LJK and MCW are amazing actors in their respective roles.

I have watched it last week and it’s really sweet, you can at most say it was loosely inspired by My Name Was Kim Sam Soon. I wish for some more Lakorns, but I am totally under informed what is going on in Thailand on TV. I was reading a blog years ago but she stopped writing while we still had many Lakorns at Viki. There were sweet dramas but rare, there were mind games going on, but a lot of slap and kiss like they called and yeah unfortunately “r***” was a big topic, because of forgivness and redeeming, to show the big heart of a woman. Because of the actors I saw quite a few Anne Thongprasom and Matt Peeranee. Matt especially had many series without the infamous topic, that probably made me watch more of her work.

I still need some time before I can go to watch Flower of Evil.


#618

I have tried to watch flower of evil, and with me being a “frustrated writer” don’t really know if I want to. don’t want one of my faves be the bad guy!

I am watching madam holmes, what a neat story, and us women have so many rights now that its pitiful. those women way back when couldn’t even think about doing something outside the home. wow! also imperial doctress, gets me to appreciate our times now!! not just Asians but around the world


#619

In some countries that’s still the case.
And even in “modern” countries there’s still some hidden inequality.


#620

so true, and I realized it watching these dramas!


#621

For some diversion I started this one

So far I like it.
