Bravo, Jealousy Incarnate!

*Slow clap*

And the public announcement service of the year goes to Jealousy Incarnate!

They’ve done a fab job of raising awareness for breast cancer in the most entertaining way possible. Don’t want to give it all away, but episode 3 is a killer. It’s part of the story arc, at least at the beginning of the series, so kudos to the writers (and likely the health promotion board) for presenting a grim topic in such an open way. Chest Thumbs up!

Last Woman Standing

So many feels.

What happens when a successful career woman who has all but given up on meeting The One, falls for a man a decade younger?

I love Eddie, and I like Shu Qi, and the subject matter is something close to the heart. What defines love? Does one ever get that opportunity for that once-in-a-lifetime relationship? What happens if you let it go?

No subs, and lots of ads at inopportune times, sorry. Dunno how long the video will be up, so enjoy it while it lasts. [Edit: Video’s been taken down. Sorry.]

The show’s not particularly stellar, but there are moments in it that hit too close to home. 3 out of 5 stars.

Can I get me some Eddie now? He’s only exactly four years younger. That’s practically a match made in Chinese zodiac heaven. Hee. (But damn – she’s only six years older than him and it shows…)

Drama – I’m breaking up with you for a bit. I’ve had enough of you toying with my heart – all those unfulfilled promises of promising premises, and horrible endings that make my past weeks of rabid fanchasing all in vain… Sigh… Maybe that’s why people stick to soaps – mindless drivel, but so steadfast in its predictability.

Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers… Continue reading

Repost: Mirror of the Witch: Episode 18 » Dramabeans Korean drama recaps

Why aren’t more people watching this fabulous show? Cliffhanger after cliffhanger, it continues to deliver with lots of plot twists and heartrending moments. 2 more episodes left, 5 more candles left unlit (seriously, what kind of voodoo candles are these that burn perpetually? Our energy crisis might be averted if that kind of technology can be harnessed…) Please let the ending be good!
