News Train: Anne, Night Light, Liar Game & More!
Time to chat about the current shows and movies I’m watching at the moment as well as those that I’m looking forward to!
K-drama Night Light starring Lee Yo-Won and Uee will be getting released in the U.S. on Netflix Valentines’ Day. I really like this cast, however still uncertain if this drama is going to be able to come together well.
Anne of Green Gables is getting a Netflix series!! Said to be “grittier” lol, whatever that means beats me. However, I’m super excited for this new take on the series. Look for Anne on Netflix in March. Source
Running Man won’t be cancelled!! I hadn’t expected this at all. If you’re a fan of the show, then you’ve probably heard all the chaos about how two cast members were fired off the show without even being properly told. Apparently, the cast members and production managers had a meeting and decided to continue the show. I have to admit my feelings are slightly mixed about this. I love that the show is continuing… Running Man has been a favorite show for me for years. I just hope that none of the members felt pushed into continuing this show just to save management from the anger of the fans for how they treated the cast members. But I guess we have no way of knowing. Source
Lee Joon-Ki is going to be in his first U.S. film, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. I’m not a fan of this kind of genre of film and I’m pretty certain his role in this film is very, very small. Still, it’s cool that he’s getting a chance to break out into Hollywood!
Current Shows I’m Watching
The Legend of the Blue Sea – This show continues to make me fall more in love with the characters and touching darker fairytale story. Thankfully, the emotional, darker side of the show is wonderfully balanced with plenty of happy and funny moments that just make me smile.
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo – This show is just super cute. More of a youth heartwarming drama, then really anything else, it has lovable characters and fun and funny moments.
Hwarang – Hwarang, thy name is bromance. And I’m loving it! This show continues to put most of its effort in the happy, silly and giddy side and I honestly have missed that in a lot of the shows I’ve been watching. There’s still drama, of course. And the drama surrounding the boy-king after his throne is my favorite.
Liar Game (J-drama) – So I decided to watch the J-drama version of one of my favorite K-dramas ever, and I’m loving it! It’s not on the same production quality and sometimes I do get a little crazy at all the dramatic-revelation sudden close up shots of every single person’s face for the hundredth time in each episode… but I just love mind-bendy dramas and it’s so fun to watch Akiyama-san outsmart everybody again and again.
Lemmie know what you’re watching now or excited about seeing soon!
