Anne: Properly…trip is over and again to the realities of life. Though I assume I did not go that distant from actuality since I refused to let my work electronic mail pile up into excessive triple digits and having to undergo it multi functional go. It was fairly enjoyable for essentially the most half since I used to be capable of ignore virtually all of the scheduled conferences. I did managed to observe among the older (as in a single or two years from now) Korean dramas that had been in my queue. Now on to the reveals that I’ve watched this week. (I am scripting this as I am catching up on this weeks episodes of Alchemy of Souls. And subsequent week we must always discuss how the CP on this drama is de facto Jang Uk and the Crown Prince.)
I used to be very, very excited when this present dropped unexpectedly. I’ve watched the primary 8 or so, and it’s all the pieces that I anticipated it to be…for higher or worse. Yang Zi performs Yan Dan, one among two final descendents of some kind of plant, and her physique is mainly a treasure trove of “medicines”. She was a part of a twin, and her elder sister was thought of the stronger one of many two, and had achieved what can be thought of “profession” after 800 years. Cheng Yi (nonetheless with that face paralysis drawback) performs Tang Zhou, one of many higher deities. The plot is pretty typical and I stand by what I’ve stated earlier than, that is like Ashes of Love and Love and Redemption mashed collectively. Yan Dan is a plant, an a lazy woman whose solely aim is to turn into the best playwrite in the entire realms. Tang Zhou is an higher deity who thinks that conserving peace among the many realms is the one aim in his life.
After a serious battle with the demons, almost the entire higher deities had been useless. Tang Zhou is severely injured and goes into the human realm. One of many attention-grabbing factor is that the battle is what prompted the heavenly emperor to break down the unique 9 realms into 3, the heaven, mortal, and the “demon” realms. So this was an attention-grabbing element that I’ve by no means seen.
Up to now, nothing out of the abnormal, and all of the silly cliches appears magnified. However I nonetheless prefer it although.
Taxi Driver (2021)
This was VERY good. I discovered this as a result of I used to be trying up different works by the solid of As a result of that is My first Life, and I’m now fangirling over Lee Je Hoon. In case anybody hasn’t seen this little gem, Kim Do Gi was a solider who got here residence to search out that his mom was murdered. He joins a crew of others who’ve misplaced members of the family to violent crimes. They function a reputable sufferer advocacy service, and a taxi service, that’s the cowl for a secret service to supply revenge for victims. Kim Do Gi performs completely different characters within the present, and he masters each single one.
The dorky and unscrupulous programmer who is simply in it for the cash.
The meek substitute instructor bullied by his college students.
And the block-head gangster with superb manners.
This was nice!
And that is all for this week.
