New poll!
I started watching She's So Lovable and so far it is good! I am looking forward to watching Boarding House No.24.
I don't think I am fond with the lead actor/actress for My Spring Days; the age gap tho...


There's also a large age gap between the lead actor/actress in She's So Lovable, too. Krystal is 19 whereas Rain is 32.

Uuugh, just finished Surplus Princess. I'm disappointed with the ending 'cause everything was so rushed. Then again it was cut down to from 16 to 10 episodes. I knew who she was going to end up with by just reading the synopsis, but I was really hoping for a shocker since they had to cut it short. =( I read a comment on Viki that describes my disappointment perfectly.

"My heart broke for 2 reasons: first of all I was not expecting ep.10 to be the end. I am very upset that it was cut so short and because of that I feel like we didnt get a complete picture of how everything worked out. That really bothers me! Like the shower scene, how the heck did she get out? Where was the confession between Hani and Hyun Myeong about their feelings and about her secret? When did Si Kyeong found out her secret? And what happened to her in the end? Why did she disappear and where was she for a year? I hate unanswered questions! My 2nd heartbreak was for Si Kyeong. When he let Hani go you could really tell how much he loved her. I like Hyun Myeong but I dont think he needed her like Si Kyeong needed her. Si Kyeong said he had a lonely life and his disability isolated him even more. Hani brought laughter and warmth into his life. So watching him cry when he let her go really broke my heart. In the original mermaid story, the mermaid has the disability by losing her voice in order to be human. In this story by giving Si Kyeong the disability I thought the writers were intending Hani to be with Si Kyeong. So I was very disappointed when that did not happen. This drama had so much potential and Im upset that the ratings were not better because it really deserved a completed ending."

Agreed. The drama went rather well the first 9 episodes, but then in the 10th episode, it just went downhill. Like WTF was that at the end?

I think maybe Si Kyeong found out about her secret when he listened in on her and Witch Ahn's conversation? After all, the scene that followed afterward was Si Kyeong telling Ha Ni that he regretted not having recognized her earlier, and after she left him to go to Hyeong Myeong, he was seen taking out a piece of her scale and staring at it solemnly.

I think the reason why Ha Ni ended up with Hyeong Myeong instead of Si Kyeong is because her heart began to recognize all that Hyeong Myeong had done for her, like protecting her identity while pretending not to know about it. If you recall what Witch Ahn said to Ha Ni at the hospital, he said that love means making sacrifices for others. Also, you have to remember that Ha Ni must be the one to find true love in order for her to become human. It wouldn't have worked if she and Si Kyeong got together, but her heart has wavering feelings for Hyeong Myeong. And because her heart chose Hyeong Myeong over Si Kyeong, that's who her true love turned out to be in the end. The heart is a complex organ. xD

Tomorrow's Cantabile came out today!

It's been a while since I watched the Jdrama version, but I thought they did a pretty good job for the first episode, especially with the messy apartment scene. I'm not sure how well Joo Won and Eun Kyung captured Chiaki and Nodame's characters, but I liked them.

Yeah, but I do feel like the love was a bit forced. I know it showed them quickly being all lovey and dovey, but I wish I got to see more of that. Also it made no sense that she disappeared and then reappeared at the very end. When she turned into bubbles, did that mean it wasn't really true love? And then the ending didn't tie in with what we saw as in the very first episode where she turns into bubbles while letting go of a hand.


I never finished the Jdrama version of Tomorrow's Cantabile, but I'm enjoying the Korean one so far. Maybe it's 'cause I have a not so secret crush on Joo Won. :'D
