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 Heirs Episode 17 Recap: God, I will literally make a list, and plan to fly to Korea in order to just personally strangle a couple of people…ARGHHH!!

This has been going on for WAY TOO LONG! I cannot hold off another reaction/recap post just because I didn’t want to vent my feelings out.

This cannot go on Kim Tan, and it mustn’t! Otherwise, the title WILL come true.

But you won’t be first on my hit list, oh nono~~ Someone took that place ages ago. And guess what? You aren’t number two either.

*Sigh* Alright, let me explain why I’m feeling this way…

Oh and if this post isn’t obvious already, there will be spoilers duhhhh lol

Regurgitating an entire episode isn’t really the thing that I do here, nor do I feel that I am talented enough to write in such a way which is as enjoyable as the beautiful ladies over at Dramabeans, so this post will probably seem more like a vented rant than ever (sorry in advance!)

EXO FINALLY FINALLY RELEASES MIRACLES OF DECEMBER…MVs. Yep, just the MVs…WHERE’S THE ALBUMS GODDAMMIT?!

An amazing song, in both Chinese and Korean *tear drop*

An amazing song, in both Chinese and Korean *tear drop*

I am literally melting here.

I’m probably suffering from post-traumatic fangirl syndrome or something; I don’t know.

The only thing I am well aware of is the fact that I have to still wait another 4 more days for the rest of the album to be released, which to this woman here *points at herself* sounds like a death sentence!

*Intake deep breath*…Now, let us begin…

“That Winter, The Wind Blows” – Kdrama Review: I feel so…conflicted ><

Hi everyone, I AM FINALLY BACK!!! Sadly, not for too long. More essays are due quite soon, so I won’t really have much time to watch anymore dramas. In the meantime, more song/maybe anime reviews will be up very soon. This drama has been delayed for a VERY VERY LONG TIME!!! Today’s review is on “That Winter, The Wind Blows”, which was broadcasted in South Korea between February and April this year. Clearly, I have been quite delayed in watching this but, like I stated before, I never had the chance to get to it.

Smexy picture; I absolutely love it >//<

“Forbidden” – Book Review & Update on life

Hey guys!! I am so sorry that I haven’t been doing anything over the past wen or so on this blog. The 30 day challenge absolutely drained it all out of me but I promise, more will come in the future on this blog. I’m currently watching a billion animes at once, and I can’t wait to share with you everything about them.

However, today I will be discussing to you all about the most recent book that I have finished reading called “Forbidden” by Tabitha Suzuma. A couple of days ago during the 30 day challenge, I had talked about this book briefly, but now I am back and ready to share with you all my thoughts on the book.

So, here goes!! (By the way, I’m typing this on my iPod so if there are any mistakes in grammar and/or spelling please forgive me ><)

Also note!! This review will contain spoilers so if you are intending to read this book then please stop reading any further and exit this post IMMEDIATELY!! Just to warn you hehe
