Let me bring you up to date #randomremarks

So I went on a work trip yesterday and I’m going to go on a vacation today. Since I’m not actually taking my computer with me, I don’t know whether I’ll be able to post anything, so here is just a small update about recent shows/songs etc.:

First off, currently there are a few currently airing BL shows. Coming out on top at the moment is definitely He’s Coming To Me, a show we all watch even though we all know it cannot really end well. For everyone who doesn’t know the show – there’s a lonely ghost who doesn’t remember anything about himself or why he’s actually dead, and a young boy (later on young man) who can see ghosts and decides to help the ghost remember. While there was some doubt in the beginning whether it was really a BL show or just a tease as a one-sided BL love, the latest episode (no.5) washed away all doubt. Let’s enjoy the good ride while it lasts because as you may have noticed – one of them is a ghost…as in dead…yeah. The show is awesome though, so I’m definitely gonna continue watching.
Currently airing every Thursday on LINE TV and I think later on on GMMTV.

Not convincing at all is the currently airing second season of What The Duck: Final Call. So the first season was already a mess and the second season isn’t any better it seems. Last season the only chemistry came from the PreeBo couple and since we won’t get much from them this season it seems…well, the chemistry between everyone else is way off. There is a spark between Bo and Pent but like I said, a spark, no real chemistry yet. Also because Rambo is pretty much a total troublemaker and mess in this season. His moral compass has not changed yet it seems. I heard there were some problems between the actors but seriously, if it would be that serious they shouldn’t make a second season. I am gonna continue watching even just to see if anyone can save this show or if it is gonna sink to the ground of nowhere.
Currently airing every Monday on LINE TV.

Another currently airing show is The Best Twins. To be honest, the chemistry is not awesome but kinda nice. They fit well you could say. Still, I don’t know where this show is headed AT ALL. I am gonna continue watching for all the cute and funny scenes but there’s still this big question mark over my head every time I watch it…
Currently airing every Saturday on LINE TV.

We also finally got the trailer for the third season of HIStory: HIStory3 – Trap. Let me be honest, I did not expect what I saw at all, I expected it to be more like the Obsessed episodes but well, if there are some writers I trust, then it’s the HIStory writers. Cannot wait to watch it – mark it in your calender, start day is April 16th.

No news about HIStory3: That Day or the second season of Boundary Crossing yet…

Another show that just ended and left many fans thanking Thailand for its awesomeness – Great Men Academy. SPOILERS AHEAD

To be honest I’ve only suffered once from second lead syndrome and even more, I’ve never seen the second lead actually get the “girl”. Well, GMA gave us just what all the fans wanted. A happy ending no one really expected. For those who don’t know: GMA tells the story of a young girl named Love who fancies one of the best students at Great Men Academy, called Vier. One day she meets the mystical unicorn by the lake and after helping the unicorn she gets a free wish. She wished for her love to be fulfilled and the unicorn allows her to turn into a boy. To get closer to her crush she decides to enroll into GMA and soon learns a lot more about life and love than she could hope for.
But let’s be honest we all just expected them to maybe have an open ending, no one expected that kiss ^.^ well, I’m not complaining, I loved the ending and if there was a second season I’d totally watch it. There probably won’t be one though since it was a project for the 9×9 group.

As for songs, we got a few new releases and a few news. Currently, with all the scandals in Korean entertainment, it is not the best time to be a K-Pop fan I guess, but what to do, I just love the music.

As for new releases, there are a few: We have KARD‘s amazing come back with Bomb Bomb. No one can say the ylaways sound the same after this one ^.^ I totally love the vibe of this one and the music video is really beautiful. VAV‘s Thrilla Killa shows their usual charisma with a little bit of a new vibe and amazing visuals. Also there is IZ*ONE‘s Violeta. I’ve not been a fan of them yet and tbh I won’t become one after that song. It’s good but now my kind of song. We also have the big come back of Black Pink with Kill This Love and I admit I didn’t dislike their songs but also didn’t really favour them much. Kill This Love though…wooo…it’s on replay on my phone already and the music video is nothing less than absolutely awesome. We also have Kang Xiwon with Click Click. The song has a really interesting chorus and kind of a nice melody. It’s kind of stuck in my head….
We also have DALsooobin with Katchup…this one is just really strange but also gets stuck in your head and won’t disappear once you hear it. As for a new rookie we have EVERGLOW with Bon Bon Chocolat. They are delivering a pretty strong debut song so I’m curious what’s gonna come in the future. We also have another strong comeback with Stray KidsMiroh…I did not expect that AT ALL, but I oh-so love it ❤

Let’s see about TV shows…
Since I watch pretty much internationally I’m gonna mention different ones: From South Korea, since we just talked about K-Pop, I have three shows I highly recommend. First, He is Psychometric, starring Jinyoung from GOT7 but also featuring a really nice brother relationship and a few funny but really dramatic scenes. Airing every Monday and Tuesday on tvN. We also have The Fiery Priest, a show that is hard to place but impresses with it’s all around characters, scenes and overall build up. Also if you had told me it was an OCN drama I would have believed you. It is really unlike the usual SBS shows, so check it out. Airing every Friday and Saturday on SBS. My biggest recommendation, though, is Kill It. Every other year we Kdrama fans need a show like City Hunter or also Healer. Kill It has a very similar vibe to that with the difference that the main character is less open and more closed up and quiet. Still the show impresses me again and again. Airing every Saturday and Sunday on OCN.

As for non Korean shows: check out Shadowhunters. It is in its last season and I have no idea what ending we are going to get but I’m excited. Also we have Chicago Fire finally back on air, as well as the whole Chicago franchise, except for Chicago Justice of course, but let’s be honest, no one really watched that one…airing every Monday, I think. 
We also recently got the new trailer for season 8 of Game of Thrones and it looks interesting. Whether it’s going to be good or not, I’ll leave that to the real fans though. My recent knowledge of GoT comes from wikipedia and people around me, I stopped watching at season 3 or 4, don’t really remember.

My last update, movies: New releases are Dumbo, a movie where even my mother decided to watch it with me, so while I’m visiting on vacation, we’ll go watch it. Therefore I have no opinion on it yet. Maybe I’ll post a review though, after watching it. The pre-sales for Avengers Endgame have started, guys!!! I’m gonna watch this movie even if I’m totally angry at the producers for the ending in the last movie. Also there is the new movie Shazam!…I really don’t know what to think of that movie. Okay, no, I know what to think of it. It may be a super hero movie but don’t take it as one, take it as a comedy or a parody…because if you take it like that it is definitely awesome ^.^
We also have Pet Sematary and I already promised my college friend I’ll go with him, so I cannot say anything about that one yet. I’m just happy he accepted to watch this one instead of The Curse of La Llorona…seriously I think I’d scream in the cinema for the first time if I had to watch that one. I just hope Pet Sematary still allows me to sleep later on.
Oh and we also got the new trailer for Annabelle Comes Home, the third installment of the Annabelle series. I’ve watched the previous two and while I nearly fainted and couldn’t sleep after I’m probably gonna watch this one too…the trailer is actually really interesting and while really scary the Conjuring franchise does feature some of the best story telling in the whole horror genre, imo. The only thing I’m not looking forward to? The Warren’s managed to survive two Conjuring movies…I don’t think their luck stretches to another one…
Oh, and did you see the newest trailer for Aladdin? I know it’s coming in May but still…I watch the trailer pretty much three times a week since I’m so in love with it ^.^ I love how they solved the animation of all the musical songs and how Will Smith adds a little bit of a modern humor to the Genie. I did not start out watching the English version of Aladdin so while I did love Robin Williams, I never got as engaged in it as some other fans who watched the English version first. Aladdin is one of my two favourite Disney movies (the other being The Lion King) so yes, I am overly excited! Release date May 24th.

So…that’s it. Now you should be up-to-date with everything. Sorry that there won’t be a review or so this week, but I wanna enjoy my vacation XP

  1. Hi,

    I’ve been waiting for your opinion or perhaps even a full review of He’s Coming to Me since it’s already Ep5. This is one show that got be into writing reviews again, and so I was looking for another reviewer with a similar or differing opinion and it seems we share the same sentiments. I do hope you can find the time to do some more reviews of it. People are thirsty of knowing what you think of the show, and that includes me and I think other reviewers as well.

    Cheers!

    1. I’ve been thinking whether to give a review or not but after this motivating comment I’m gonna give you one. Don’t have the time right now but I can probably publish something around the end of the week 😊 thanks for giving me some energy

      1. Thai BL reviewers (outside of such site as MyDramalist) are becoming such a ‚rare species‘ that I’m trying to reach out to those I knew and respect their views/opinion. I think that energy can feed off of each other.

        Your BL recommendations have given me both inspiration and challenge to come up with my own, and I think you made a lot of points especially in storylines – their logic or lack of it. It’s refreshing when you read honest, frank reviews like yours compared to lip services… LOL

        Looking forward to your take on He’s Coming to Me.
