News Train 2: Dragons and Giant Apes

More hodgepodge stuff of shows I’m anticipating and currently watching!

Upcoming Shows:

So I recently learned about The Magnificent Seven, a remake of the 1960’s version that originally starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen. I honestly have never watched the original but the remake looks pretty exciting. I like the idea of westerns (gunslingers, shoot-outs, saloon fights) but I’m not a fan of most of them as classic westerns are a little slow for my taste. However, this remake looks action packed PLUS (okay, the real reason I’m interested…) Chris Pratt is in it and Lee Byung-Hun!!

I honestly forgot about Kong: Skull Island until I was looking through Tom Hiddleston’s IMDB page. It’s an origin story on King Kong. Not exactly sure what that means but I’ve always liked the King Kong movies… and yes, the REAL reason I’m stoked is because Tom Hiddleston is starring! I mean, how can I resist? Hehe.

Current Shows:

Six Flying Dragons – still watching and only falling more in LOVE! This drama, how can you be so freakin’ heartfelt, intense, epic and emotional?? The swordfights, the bromance, the epic speeches, so many surprises, SO MANY STRONG GIRL CHARACTERS, the secret CULT THAT CONTROLS EVERYTHING!

Beautiful Gong-shim – I’ve kinda fallen behind but the show has been pretty cutesy and silly so far, which is a nice change of pace from the other stuff I’m watching.

Parks and Rec – aww! Ben and Leslie got married. They are so freakin’ adorable. I really have to give it to the show for creating so many sweet couples and likable characters.

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…
