Princess Jasmine’s Ji Chang Wook fanmeet adventure!

Hi everyone!

We have a special treat today!

Princess Jasmine, whom you’ve likely seen around the blog, recently went on a cross-border adventure, to see her One True Love, Ji Chang Wook in person, during his fanmeeting in Jakarta, and generously offered to share the experience with us.

Isn’t that so very sweet of her?

Thank you, Princess Jasmine, for thinking to take us on your Ji Chang Wook adventure, so that we can feel the feels with you. 🥰

Please enjoy, everyone!

KFG ❤️

Review: If You Wish Upon Me

THE SHORT VERDICT:

Show is warm and well-intentioned at its core, and does deliver a good amount of poignance and feels, when it leans into this aspect of its personality.

At the same time, Show also has a melodramatic side, and while it is relevant to the story, and therefore necessary for Show to give it time in the spotlight, I do feel like Show goes a bit ham with it, especially in its late stretch.

That said, Show manages to end on a poignant, feel-good, thought-provoking note, despite some treacly tendencies, which is a solid accomplishment on its own.

Your mileage is likely to vary, given Show’s mixed reputation. (Hopefully, this review will help you figure out whether this one’s for you.)

Review: The Sound Of Magic

THE SHORT VERDICT:

Show’s pretty ambitious, in that, not only is this story about plausibly real magic, this is also quite possibly Dramaland’s first attempt at an actual musical drama (versus dramas that have musical numbers in them).

As with all first attempts, there are things that Show does well, and things which Show could have improved on, in the interest of being better and more cohesive, overall.

Choi Sung Eun is excellent as the heart of this story, and the rest of the cast puts in brave and  reasonably strong performances as well, but I do think that both the story and the music could have been better managed.

Not amazing, but not bad, overall.
