/ / m a i n / /hi guys!! i haven't done show reviews in so long, thought i'd do up a quick one today to show you guys what i've been watching in my free time!:)Doctor stranger:I've always been a fan of medical dramas, and this one is definitely one of my favourites of all time! The storyline is abit more unique, its not just a medical drama cos it incorporates a bit of politics regarding north and south korea, which made the whole thing ALOT more interesting. I thought Lee Jong Suk's acting in this drama was really quite on point and i enjoyed it very much. He basically acts as a super genius talented surgeon by the way, which was really cool. If you aren't a fan of blood i suggest you don't watch this though haha.Rating:8.5/10Pinnocchio:I watched this drama because of the lead actors, Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye! To be honest the synopsis didn't make an impression on me at first, the idea of a newscaster drama didn't seem that interesting. But i guess i was proven wrong cos i did enjoy this drama a fair bit. A touch of murder, mystery and vengence definitely spiced up the drama. I liked the chemistry between the two leads, it was so much better than in Heirs! The plot was so intriguing at first, and it peaked around the middle, but died down near the end, which is a pity. However i think this is still worth a watch!Rating:7/10Heirs:Once again, i watched this because of the cast (Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye). But yes as many reviews have said, this drama was a disappointment. The plot is so cliche until cannot cliche anymore, there was no plot twist in any way and no high and lows. It was rather boring, and even the chemistry between the lead actors weren't there. The star studded cast (Minhyuk from CNBlue, Krystal from fx etc) might have helped attract viewers at first, but i guess if the plot itself isn't good, its hard to keep the interest of viewers. The actors in this drama aren't bad to be honest, but the plot just didn't do any of them justice. The only good thing about this drama is Kim Woo Bin to be honest lol.Rating: 4.5/10The Girl Who Sees Smells:This is the latest drama i finished, featuring Shin Se Kyung and Yoochun from JYJ! I think the whole idea of the lead actress being able to see different smells is a refreshing one, although this drama IS adapted from a manga or something. Somehow the director managed to make something so fictional seem possible in real life, which i think is commendable. This storyline revolves around a serial murder case, which ties together relationships between the characters quite nicely. The suspense factor isn't there though, cos the murderer is revealed quite early in the story, though there was a minor plot twist in the middle. The chemistry between the lead actors is so-so, not too bad. I did enjoy this drama a fair bit, i would think its worth a watch!Rating:7/10Liar Game:I watched this because of two reasons, Kim So Eun and the synopsis haha! I first noticed Kim So Eun cos she acted in Boys Over Flowers, then recently she is in the variety show We Got Married as well and i thought she has quite alot of spunk. She acts as an innocent, kind girl in this drama, too kind for her own good, which i think she portrayed really well (after comparing with her real life personality haha). If you like intellectual dramas, this one is not bad cos it requires thinking as you watch the drama and try to think of tricks to win the "games" in the drama, alongside the lead actors. The bad guy in this show is super good btw! Acting on point and he just naturally has that evil vibes so it was quite suitable lol. This is adapted from a manga as well if I'm not wrong! Worth a watch, i enjoyed this:)Rating:7.5/10So other than korean dramas, here are some other shows i've been watching!I've been watching every season of America's Next Top Model and also the Australia version since i was young, so when Asia's Next Top Model was launched i knew i had to watch it! Honestly, the US version is alot more drama and thus many find it more interesting. However i actually quite like the Asia version cos its more relatable! Plus, many of the episodes are filmed in our very own Singapore and i feel so proud of that hehe. I remember i first started watching it in sec 4, when I accidentally chanced upon it when i went into the living room to do my work and the tv was on. I was hooked within the first 5 minutes and couldn't stop watching it, so i ended up staying past midnight to finish my assignment lol! The themes for each episode are really quite unique and creative. Not to mention, the clothes they wear in the show are really pretty yet wearable, unlike the high fashion walkway kind that has more artistic value than "wearability" value. I found out that the clothes from the show are from Zalora omg. Even better cos can shop for the looks i like hahaha. There's a link to the looks here if you guys are interested!I also like looking at the hair and makeup done by the stylists of the show cos its so on point!! So far i like season 3 the best! I was super excited cos i saw a familiar face on this season (Aimee)! She modelled for local blogshops and i've always thought she had such a sweet look and gorgeous features. A lot of girls are aiming to be models nowadays, maybe not the runway kind due to height limits, but maybe freelance or blogshop models. I would recommend they watch this show cos it offers an insight into how the modelling world is like. Personally i've done quite a few photoshoots, whether personal or for other blogshops. And when i tell my friends modelling is actually tough, they don't believe me!! They think its just "stand there and pose lor", but its actually not. I think if they watched this show they'll believe me hahaha. So yup, this is a show I personally enjoy and would recommend!
I've actually been watching quite a few more shows but i guess i'll stop here today and continue next time!Now go watch the shows guys hehe!Till the next;xoxo
