Flash Review: LOVE [Taiwan] [Movie]

Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends!! ❤️

If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day movie to watch, this omnibus movie, which is all about love, might be a good contender. Show was released 10 years ago, specifically in celebration of Valentine’s Day – which is why I thought it’d be the perfect show to check out today, in honor of the season of love.

Flash Review: 9 Seconds: Eternal Time [Web Drama]

If you’re on the market for a short little drama thing, and are in the mood for young love with lashings of poignance, and a fantasy twist, then little web drama 9 Seconds: Eternal Time might just be your ticket.

At just 7 episodes of only 15 minutes each, Show works out to be under 1 hour 25 minutes, and yet, manages to pack a surprisingly solid emotional punch, in that short time. Not bad, I say.

Flash Review: Seobok [Movie]

Huge shout-out to Beez, who was the one who let us know, over on Patreon, that Viki would start carrying Seobok, from 1 Feb! Thanks, Beez! 😘

I have a great deal of fondness for both Gong Yoo and Park Bo Gum, which is why this movie’s been on my radar, ever since it was announced. Now that I’ve finally had the chance to see it, I’ll say that while this movie didn’t ultimately rock my world, I am glad to have checked it out.

Flash Review: Namiya [Miracles of the Namiya General Store] [China] [Movie]

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! 🧨 If you’re looking for a holiday movie for the festive season, this one just might fit the bill.

It’s a heartwarming Hallmark-esque sort of story, with a fantasy twist. Not your typical holiday movie, in that sense, but with enough of the cozy, poignant, warming feels that you’d tend to want, from a holiday movie, to make it a contender for your holiday screen time.

Flash Review: Reincarnation Love [Mini Drama]

Shout-out to Cure or fire, who was the one who let me know that Lee Do Hyun and Go Min Si were reuniting for this tiny little mini drama. Before that, I’d had no idea that Lee Do Hyun and Go Min Si were reuniting for anything at all, so this was a welcome bonus.

Sure, fans of Youth Of May who were waiting for this reunion with bated breath, are now crying foul, because instead of a drama special of some sort, of an hour or more, it’s turned out to be an itty-bitty 6-minute beer commercial. Ha. I can see why that would feel deflating. 😝

Honestly, though, I kinda love it, for what it is. 😁

Flash Review: Adoring [China] [Movie]

If you’re looking for a holiday movie to watch this New Year’s weekend, Adoring might be a good contender. It came out on 31 December 2019, just in time for New Year’s – so we’re only about a year late? 😁

Show is simple, easy, and it focuses on bringing the feels. And! There’re pets!! What’s not to love, right? 🤩

Flash Review: Sunset In My Hometown [Movie]

Merry Christmas, everyone!!

I thought this would be an apt post for today, since some of you might be looking for a movie to watch during the holidays.

If you’re looking for some rustic countryside vibes, all sorts of relationship feels, with a side of introspection, growth and gratitude, this could be just your ticket.

Flash Review: I’m Dying Soon [Drama Special]

When I saw that Oh Jung Se and Kim Seul Gi were headlining this little drama special from 2014, I couldn’t not check it out. I mean, they are both so talented, and I’d love to see more of them on my screen.

Now that I’ve emerged on the other side, I do think that some specific lens adjustments would help to make this one more uniformly enjoyable for the average viewer, which I’ll talk about shortly.

Overall, I think this one’s definitely worth a look, if only for our leads.

Dropped: At A Distance, Spring Is Green

I had good intentions of wanting to like this one, particularly since it was enthusiastically recommended to me by Carulhein. She mentioned that she really enjoyed this one, despite Show’s low ratings, and that gave me hope that I might like it too.

However, 1.5 episodes in, I’ve come to the conclusion that while Show may have its fans (and said fans really do love this show a lot), I just don’t think it’s for me, unfortunately.

Hopefully this Dropped post will help you to figure out whether this one could work for you.

Flash Review: Bite Sisters [Web Drama]

When I saw that Kang Han Na was starring in this as a vampire, I was immediately intrigued.

I’d loved her (so much!) as a ditzy ex-gumiho in My Roommate is a Gumiho, and this felt like it was in a similar enough space to tap on that same otherworldly fabulosity, while sounding different enough, to not feel like this was more of the same.

The good new is, my estimation wasn’t wrong. Kang Han Na’s role in this is similar-yet-different, when stacked up against her outing in My Roommate is a Gumiho. The not-so-great news is, this little show isn’t quite as fun or interesting as I’d first imagined.

Still, I do think there’s a niche sort of appeal to this, and I hope this quick review will help you figure out whether this one’s for you.
