Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #409

Anne: I’ve since come to the belief this week that the 5 12 months previous has the vocabulary of a teenage lady in each 80s film ever made. Every thing is “Oh My Gosh!”, “What the hell?!”, “That’s ridiculous!”, “Are you severe?!”. It’s fairly humorous. That is the one little little bit of foolish information that I’ve of the true world. And now again to drama land…

Jinxed at First

This was on my Viki listing, and I began it this week simply to see what it was all about. The story is a bit fantastical, a couple of household of feminine shamans who might see the way forward for anybody they contact. For years, they have been the properties of royalty, till a chaotic time allowed them to flee captivity. Nonetheless, being free did not final lengthy, and one of many line ended up being again beneath another person’s safety. Lee Seul Bi, a girl who has been saved in captivity and hidden away by a rich household who makes use of the ladies’s powers to maintain themselves rich and highly effective. 

Nonetheless, Seul Bi accidently lets herself out of her “jail” at some point when she catches sight of Gong Soo Gwang and immediately turns into smitten with him. She thinks that he’s the prince that she’s been ready for, the one which her mother tells her about in her tales. When he lastly brings her again to the “lodge” that she escaped from, he finds that he was accused of kidnapping a baby of a lodge visitor, misplaced his internship, and bought thrown in jail. So as to hold anybody else from realizing about Seul Bi and her mom, Soo Gwang then finds his mom killed by a driver and him additionally tied up and thrown into the ocean to drown. Stroke of luck that he did not died outright. The person who saved him gave him a brand new title and Soo Gwang grew to become Go Myung Sung and have become a fish vendor in a neighborhood market. However each time he goals about Seul Bi, that day his dangerous luck streak will are available threes. 

In the intervening time, Seul Bi is “given” to Seon Min Joon, the son of the person who saved Seul Bi and her mom hidden. To this point, regardless of utilizing her items to assist his household, Min Joon remains to be one that does not suppose that his father is true in holding them locked up. So when Seul Bi escapes once more, together with her mother’s assist, Min Joon pretended to haven’t seen her “get away”. 

Seul Bi runs straight to Soo Gwang… 

The present is sort of attention-grabbing, plot-wise. Though Seul Bi’s “character”, whereas comprehensible contemplating how she grew up, does get a bit irritating. Hopefully she grows out of it rapidly like JinMi.

Alchemy of Souls

This was on my Netflix listing, and wow this factor may be very BRIGHT. The colours and outfits of this are a bit out of this world, jogs my memory lots like how Ashes of Love had all these in-your-face colours. The story takes place in a very fictional world, the place there are folks with particular powers. They translated this as mages in English, so let’s go along with that. On this place, there may be an elite murderer who, when she was about to die, transferred her soul right into a human named, Mu Deok. She occurs upon Jang Uk, whose “power” have been sealed by his father and nobody highly effective sufficient to undo them dared to. He realizes who Mu Deok actually is, and “convinces” her to be his grasp. And by episode two, she managed to get his “power” unsealed. Unsure why he by no means thought of doing the identical factor earlier.

It is cute. The garments are outrageous and every thing is sort of visible. That is an okay watch thus far.

A Dream of Splendor

There may be a lot kissing on this drama and we’re solely at episode 26. This man nonetheless managed to get a kiss or two in earlier than he handed out from his close to mortal wound. Whereas not every thing goes as quick as the start of this present, the introduction of recent characters and the expansion of previous ones hold every thing very entertaining. I cringed each time when Track Yin Zhang had considered one of her “little” moments of daydream about Gu Qian Fan.  And the way is she the ONLY one that cannot see what is going on? And none of us are stunned that she instantly rotated and agreed to develop into a live-in girlfriend of the person who did pursue her. I swear, did she NOT hearken to a phrase that Zhao Pan Er advised her about counting on a person to advance her life?

San Niang and her relationship growth with Du Chang Feng was one of many enduring surprises of the present. And the way cute is Chen Lian, Qian Fan’s little follower?

And what’s with all these scenes with Ou Yang Xu’s struggling? Is he coming again? 

Qian Fan higher not play the noble fool in a while. 

And I do not get the distinction between proudly owning a tea home versus a restaurant/bar.

I’m nonetheless totally having fun with the present. After all there are points right here and there, the voice altering actually bothers me. 

And that is for this week. I completed Sh**ting Stars and From Now On, Showtime!, and I favored each of their endings. No huge scandals for our secretly courting couple and everybody paired up. For the magician, he accepted his destiny because the Shaman and let Choi Gum possess him to handle the evil spirit. There was some odd issues in that why did not the evil spirit simply possess the opposite 7-star folks? If it gave him a lot extra energy? Why did he simply ended up sucking up their power? Cha ChaWoong misplaced his potential to see ghosts and have become an assistant of his rival and ended up having a expertise for placing on a present. Seul Hae grew to become a detective who “kicked ass” along with his police accomplice. And Choi Gum ended up not having the ability to head to Nirvana as a result of he wanted to make up the sin of sponging off ChaWoong and Seul Hae to “repair” his karma. And you need to see the youngsters. I do not know the way however they did a GOOD job casting these children.

Have an ideal week and completely happy drama watching!
