The Heirs Episode 20 (END) Recap: A rollercoaster ride that came to a finish; some got off safely while others got dumped and fell off near the end…

1450230_623089621087505_495380378_n

And so, “The Heirs” has finally come to a close, after taking all of us on a ride that we wish to remember some, but also forget some. It has been one heck of a ride – from happy to sad moments, from angry to frustrating-moments-where-could-even-throw-your-computer-away. But no matter what has happened over the past 10 weeks, it is not hard to say that we will dearly miss the whole cast and story. And if these characters were real people in our lives, we would want to dearly wish them all the best in their endeavours.

On a side note, I’m sorry that this recap is being posted up so late; had to go to work earlier than usual therefore the post had to be postponed.

Alright, let’s finally finish this! Continue reading

The Heirs Episode 19 Recap: It was a rollercoaster all right, but why did it seem not as scary as I expected it to be??

Definitely my most favourite scene out of the whole episode! <3

Today’s episode was what everyone was probably not what everyone hoped for, but it was exactly what was expected of the episode – an episode that just gave-out literally at the last minute.

This episode had its moments, as in it showed what we wanted to see (cute, happy moments between the main leads) but in all honesty, considering this is the penultimate episode already, plot-wise there should have been more.

Let’s do this!

The Heirs Episode 18 Recap: Ahhh sooo you rip my heart into pieces, and then use cheap glue to mend it back together…sadly, it fell apart again too quickly writers, too quickly

Happy Eun Sang and Kim Tan at last...

Happy Eun Sang and Kim Tan at last…

Today will be a much calmer look on things (and for the better too), as redemption is a key aspect in today’s/yesterday’s episode of “The Heirs”.

Like yesterday’s entry, it won’t be a full-out recap like most bloggers do, but rather a post to discuss about what I think are the highlights of the episode.

Let’s begin, shall we?

The remaining half of Psycho-Pass fell short, but is still a series worth checking out…kind of

psycho pass ending title

So, I finally finished up Psycho-Pass once and for all, and ended up getting out of it a lot of questions about our current society, conflicted feelings and another awesomely addictive Jpop song…what more could I ask for, hey?

Oh yes, there is one thing; the next season for this series please.

Why? You’ll eventually find out…but don’t say I didn’t warn you beforehand.

What is it? I haven’t said anything? Well….SPOILERS ALERT!

There, I said it – happy?

…Let’s finish this.

By the way, this is kind-of part two of my review for Psycho-Pass; for part one, click on the link provided:

30 day Kpop Challenge – Day 15: I miss you so much Dad…so much

Day 15: A k-pop song that reminds you of someone you miss 

Hello everybody!!!

So, as I have mentioned before in this challenge, my father passed away from cancer over three years ago. Even now, I still think of him, and miss him dearly. So, I decided to use the same answer again, as it does remind of him (I know, this is probably cheating, but still)

30 day Kpop Challenge – Day 7: It’s still very hard for me to sit through the whole song…

Day 7: A k-pop song that makes you cry 

Hello people! Wow, it’s been one week already!! How time flies!

So, today’s challenge was a bit difficult to choose…there are probably hundreds of songs out there which are bound to make me cry a river (haha, get it?), but there is one song which has been difficult for me to sit through without tearing up for a while now.
