Currently Watching: Scarlet Heart Ryeo


It is surprising that I would be watching this, because I wasn’t a crazy fan of the original Chinese drama, Bu Bu Jing Xin / Scarlet Heart, it was based on. In fact, despite my love for palace dramas, I was never really interested in that drama. I knew people were crazy over it, I kept up with the storyline but it was just too angsty for my liking. I know I’ll enjoy it if I do watch, but the amount of tears I’ll most likely drop while watching the drama has successfully deterred me from watching the actual drama. I contented myself with just reading recaps (and even that made me drop a tear or two… good job recappers!)

So, why would I watch this drama? Good question, I don’t know either. It just happened. And thus far, I’ve been enjoying it a lot. Here are a couple of thoughts I have from watching this drama (synopsis).

Hi readers, it’s been a long time. I have disappeared without warning for the past few months but the irony is, I watched more dramas than I ever did during the times I was active on here. During my disappearance, I was on a drama binge, probably because I finally had time to throw myself into the world of dramas without worrying about blogging and all.  Continue reading

Native title: Hotaru no Haka 火垂るの墓
Country of Origin: Japan
Duration: 90 minutes
Ratings: Rotten Tomatoes = 97%, IMDb = 8.5/10, Dramarian = 11/10


Hopefully my writing streak won’t break so soon because I’ve been watching such beautiful movies lately. Before I go on full blast movie review mode, I’m beyond happy to share with you that I passed my board exams! Yes, that exam which made me disappear for such a long time into dramaland😀

This will be my first time to write a review on a Japanese anime film and possibly a start of a series of reviews especially focusing on Studio Ghibli films. For every review that I will be doing, I will not focus on recapping the story or scenes because you can just look it up everywhere. Instead, it will comprise the  following sections: story, characters, rewatch value, and overall rating.  So feel free to read more on how/why “Grave of the Fireflies” just ruined me into pieces.
