Period Drama Challenge 2016: March Tag Questions


So far I've had a lot of fun being a part of Miss Laurie's Period Drama Challenge. Since I posted a review for Rurouni Kenshin, a Japanese film set during the 19th century, in March, I have some March tag questions to answer! Definitely check out the March Drama List on Miss Laurie's website - there are so many great reviews, including Poldark, Miss Potter, Arabian Nights, and more!

 March Tag Questions: 

1. What period dramas did you view in March?
I'm so bad at remembering the films I watched, lol. For films I watched 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2: Sword of Destiny. I also rewatched Maleficent and started on the K-drama Jackpot (set during the late 17th-early 18th century).

2. What is your favorite period drama soundtrack?
This is SUCH a hard question! I listen to a lot of soundtrack music. I really love the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks.

3. If you could attend a ball in a Jane Austen story what would be the color of your ballgown and who would you dance with?
White for my ballgown. I know, it's such a basic color but I'm just kinda obsessed with the dreaminess of white. And I would dance with Mr. Knightley or Mr. Tilney. No scratch that, I would dance with Mr. Bingley. Because he'd probably endlessly compliment me on my dancing and the music and everything and make me feel happy. Lol.

4. Do you prefer watching period dramas by yourself or with friends/family? Why?
It really depends. I think with miniseries or TV shows I prefer to do so myself. But I find a lot of fun in watching a movie with my sisters. Especially if it's ridiculous or comical, cuz then we can make fun of it. Like we did for the third Hobbit film (my apologies Hobbit film lovers).

5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in April 2016?
I want to see The Jungle Book, if that counts. Also a bunch of historical K-dramas. I have a long list of Chinese/Korean historical films that probably no one's heard of that I want to see. I already watched Victor Frankenstein with James McAvoy, so there was one. Looks like I'm well on my way!

    1. Yeah Keanu Reeves wasn't the best part of the movie, lol. Actually there wasn't a lot of great things about that movie at all. It was kinda average.

      He does have the happiest manners of any Austen hero :D

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
Ahem.
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…
