Challenge: Day 25 – Cringe Worthy Moment

I don’t know if I could pick just one cringe worthy moment in Time Slip Dr. Jin. I mean there’s so much to choose from! Like all the gratuitous surgeries with blood and more blood.

Dr. Jin - perhaps contemplating how bad his show became
What really takes the cake though is that Dr. Jin time-traveled back to the 1860s in Joseon (Korea) – so he’s doing surgeries back then with limited tools and only his amazing super brained knowledge. Like doing C-sections… without anesthesia (or a hospital). Or heart surgery where he literally holds someone’s heart to pump it back to life or removes a bullet from someone’s lungs!! Or a romantic ballad playing in the background while Dr. Jin pops the heroine’s oozy foot blister. I seriously wish I was making it up at this point. I don’t know if I can go on; I’m honestly dying of laughter right now at how bad and insane this show was. In my defense, I fast-forwarded a lot of the later episodes and just watched the scenes with my favorite characters (which wasn't Doctor Jin or the heroine). 

However, I'm choosing the scene where the king was talking with his political ministers about serious business and then leans over to let out some flatulence – which makes the king happily chuckle and all his ministers awkwardly look around. You see, Dr. Jin saved his life with surgery (and a blood transfusion to boot) and told him once he passed gas he could eat again. Oh my gosh, I’m laughing so hard right now. Perhaps this should’ve been put in funniest moment instead, lol.

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
