Arang and the Magistrate: Episodes 1-4

Arang and the Magistrate

Episode 1-4

So I watched the first four episodes of Arang and the Magistrate and I find that I am very impressed with it’s cinematographic beauty not to mention it’s quirky attitude and charming story (so-far). The vividness of the color, the sharpness in detail, the interesting angles, added to the crazy story that has actually managed to get me fully behind Arang, it’s really obvious that the director and the writer have a method to their madness because it all comes together to make it a visual delicacy.  Nom Nom, I’m eating it up with Joon Ki as the main dish! (I luff him ) Continue reading

In Time With You – Episode 8 Recap

In Time With You

Episode 8

Intro

So many missed opportunities for one person are  another person’s golden opportunities and so it is between Da Ren and Ding Li Wei. Da Ren hasn’t been able to make use of his time with You Qing but Li Wei with the little time he’s had since coming back he’s taken each opportunity to try and claim her affection.

If it’s love or not, if it’ll last or not, those are things that are not easy to determine if it’s even possible, there are so many gray areas in life that it becomes hard to determine it’s different shades.

Hoping that we’ll get to choose between black and white is futile, all we’ll get is choices of gray, is it more black than white or more white than black? that’s what we have to determine for ourselves. You Qing has a dilemma like this in this story. Should she choose Ding Li Wei who is open with his feelings though he has a temper to match her own, should she choose Da Ren who thinks about her feelings over his own and is often too lily livered to actually confess?

In Time With You- Episode 7 Recap

In Time With You

Episode 7

Intro

Why are our favourite couple so uncommunicative lately? Why? I swear since the past two or three episodes Da Ren hasn’t been able to actually get a word in edgewise because of all of You Qing’s Ding Li Wei drama. In this episode I wanted to hug Da Ren and at the same time smack him for being so passive. It’s definitely the Second Lead weakness, but he’s the main! so he should be forward about his feelings, and yet we care about him because he is like that, so mindful of the other’s feelings… What to do?

In Time With You- Episode 6 Recap

In Time With You

Episode 6

Intro Commentary

I think this episode has a lot of misunderstandings. Finally some are faced and fixed and others are still festering waiting to explode.  I want everything to come out in the open, I want them(You Qing mostly in this ep) to really listen to what they’re saying. I want them to use their incredible bond to notice how much more than friends they are. I swear this relationship they have has more love, more devotion and honest to goodness caring than many marriages! They have a lot going for them and I hope they realize it SOON! or I’m going to die… I swear I’m about to self-destruct, implode, or what have you.

In Time With You- Episode 4

In Time With You

Episode 4

Intro

Today it was all about denial. Denial, You Qing is drowning willfully in that wide river. She knows that she’s jealous but she refuses to analyze the reasons for it. Da Ren on the other hand, knows that he loves You Qing and has started to step out of his denial phase, but doesn’t know what to do with that knowledge.

This episode is all about the relationship between Da Ren and You Qing, how they each perceive each other and how they think the other perceives them in return.  Continue reading

In Time With You- Episode 3

In Time With You

Episode 3

Intro

First off before I start the recap I have to say that I love ITWY’s mood, pace, ambiance, and the awesome acting by both Ariel and Chen Bo Lin. They make me feel like YQ and LDR could be my friends too, they’re just that real. I appreciate the little things, quirks that make them so real, like the fact that they too get busy and can’t talk to each other all the time, and one might get miffed about it though forget later when the other calls back. Or how LDR is so used to teasing and being hit by YQ for his smartass answers/ comments that he scoots that half inch away in anticipation before the hit comes. I love their friendship to bits and though I wish that they would realize they love each other and face life together, I don’t mind watching them be great friends to each other.  Continue reading
