Because updates are exhausting #randomremarks

Welcome to another installment of random remarks and me lamenting about some ongoing things…or if I’m late, the recently past things 🙂

What to do with Monday and Tuesday?

So recently I started to write down all the shows I’m watching and on what weekdays I can expect some new episodes. I really need it because I watch to much and already lost total control of my calendar I guess. Well, so I started this calendar and soon realized…why do I have almost nothing to watch on Monday and Tuesday? For some time I had one (!) show to watch but since that ended I’m pretty much screwed at the beginning of the week. For now I have spend my time re-watching already released stuff or to finally finish a few shows I had stopped watching for some time.

So if you know any good shows airing on Mon/Tue, feel free to write it down in the comments.

It’s gonna be an interesting Phase Four…

Whether you are a Marvel fan or not, if you like superhero movies at all, you probably have heard of the dispute between Marvel and Sony.
For those who do not know, Marvel (which belongs to Disney) and Sony have made a pretty amazing deal in the last few years, something not seen before. Sony owns the rights to Spiderman while Marvel wanted to add the friendly neighborhood hero to their highly popular MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and integrate him into the world of their other superheroes. If you have ever entered the world of licensing, owner rights and so on, you’ll know it’s messy and pretty much a world of “i have something you don’t have, hehe”. So, this deal… Marvel and Sony decided to cut a deal, where Sony would pay and produce the movies but Marvel would take the lead on the creative side. Of course, the income would go to Sony too. I mean, let’s be honest here: if you are not an avid comic fan and totally for “the original comic creators should be able to do what they want with their hero”, then this does sound pretty reasonable considering Marvel/Disney were the ones who wanted to include Spiderman into their universe. I mean, yes, Sony got the lucky end with the movies considering only (I think) 5% of the movie profit went to Marvel but…everyone…you DO KNOW HOW MUCH money Spiderman made, right? The first one got pretty much 7-8 times its original budget and the second made around 9-10 times its original budget.

tenor

A little bit of math: if I can believe wikipedia, Spider-Man: Far From Home made around 1.111 billion US Dollars. Even if we minus the 160 million for its budget, 5% are still around 47 million dollars. Ever heard of the phrase: “if you don’t respect the little money, then you don’t deserve the big one”? and Marvel finally got a deal that allowed for them to get to use Spiderman in their MCU.

In general, I understand why Marvel asked for more money, I do. I do not understand why they asked for 50% though. Let me be honest, if I was in Sony’s position I would’ve trashed the deal too. I mean, Sony DID buy the Spiderman rights and now they are being slandered for actually doing what they want with it…that’s as if I bought a house, painted it pink and now everyone is complaining that I should give back the house, JUST because I colored it pink. I mean Sony already saw that it was smarter to let Marvel take the creative lead because they are far better at that than Sony, but asking for half of the money, it’s pretty much Marvel asking whether they can have their hero back. I’m totally for Marvel getting their hero back…but maybe don’t ruin your own story on the way. So many people already doubted the MCU could survive without Iron Man and this definitely does not bode well for the MCU’s future.

So yes, I’m actually on Sony’s side here…I do hope they reach a new deal with Disney and Marvel though, because Tom Holland as Spiderman is just amazing ^.^

And fall brings us back to the wonderful world of BL…

For BL there are these phases I think. During the year there are like 3 or 4 phases where there are 2-3 BL shows airing at the same time. Then suddenly it stops and we are left with nothing. Before 2Moons2 we had such a sad phase. Well, another one is coming soon. September brings another dry phase considering 2Moons2 ends in September and Dark Blue Kiss doesn’t start until October. The same with the highly anticipated (at least by me) series Until We Meet Again, that one is supposed to start in November. History3 Make Our Days Count (the second story of the HiStory3 series) is also set to air from October 1st. So prepare for some sad weeks of not being able to watch anything. Do not be too sad though, since we are getting Dark Blue Kiss, Until We Meet Again, HiStory3 Make Our Days Count and maybe finally the also long awaited series The Effect (although we may not know whether that show goes the dark or happy road)

95692a24d09d02a8ad3b7fd4813804efbcd56202_hq

Since I already mentioned it, I cannot wait for Until We Meet Again. I’m currently reading the novel and it is absolutely awesome. I mean seriously, it’s tragic and sad, but at the same time so lovely! And considering the trailers/teasers and the pictures I have seen I think they did a good job with the cast ^.^ so excited for it. For those who do not know: UWMA is about Korn and Intouch, who fall in love and promise each other to always be together and find each other. But their love is not supposed to last and ends tragically. 30 years later, Parm starts his university life and meets the swimming team captain Dean. And strangely, both of them have the feeling of having met each other before…as if they remembered each other from a previous life.
I am seriously so excited for this series!

pvoznf

As for 2Moons2, let me be honest, if the ending is as good as the show is right now, they totally top the previous season. The show has the chemistry, the cast, the stories, the design and camera work and gets better each episode. I’m definitely gonna post a review after it ended, so yes, you’re gonna hear my full review then.

So, is there anything else? Not really I guess…I am planning to release a review on Theory of Love soon 😀

Summer is here #lifeinanutshell

Let me start this post in a different way than usual. With a warning. It’s 36°C where I’m from and my brain switches off at around 25°C so I’m overly excerting myself right now. It’s hot, it’s sunny and even though I’m on vacation right now, I’m totally useless.

92603455d66316ec6b8446b0db1d9e7c511722b9_00

So despite this lack of usefulness and energy, I thought it would be a nice idea to post some life update again since I haven’t in a long time. Just to keep you up to date even if you’re not interested 😉 (even I’m getting tired of all the reviews)

What have I been up to?

I tried losing some kilos and the only thing I lost was my patience.
I finished my Bachelor thesis, but I do still have to take additional courses at uni.
I’m on vacation and sweating my life out of me since IT IS TOO HOT. Did I mention that already? *my brain is overheating right now*

I’m diligently watching the ongoing BL shows and tried to post some reviews but I kind of get stuck in the middle all the time so no posting yet. I will try to finish the 2Moons 2 review today though, so maybe in the next few days I can release it.

dzgh731uuae_xbe

As for general BL news: currently ongoing Theory of Love with #OffGun and like mentioned 2Moons 2 with the new cast. We just finished the re-telling episodes of the story so let’s see how they manage with a whole new story. I’m interested.

So, yeah, there is not much going on but at the same time some things have happened I guess. I hope that after finishing my thesis, the exams and so on I might have some time to release some posts again so keep your eyes open, maybe I’ll manage to keep my promises for once.

So this is the end of my post, it’s a short one, I know.
Bye 🙂

 

 

 

Ending and Ongoing #randomremarks

Here we are again with my new corner of #randomremarks or an update on BL, K-Pop or whatever is going on right now.

Find the rest of the series here: Updates #randomremarks

This time I’ll include a short review of the He’s Coming To Me finale, as well as a short Shazam! review. I know that did not mix well at all but who cares 😉 as for K-Pop…I don’t really have any interesting news there. Not really…there are other BL news though.

He’s Coming To Me – Finale *spoilers*

So we just got our long expected (it was only 8 episodes but we all felt like we were watching it for so long, admit it) finale of this wonderful series. Did I expect this ending? Not at all. Nope.

I expected it to end badly…like really bad and for me to cry my eyes out. I did cry (a lot) but it was an ending I could rewatch and I won’t scratch this ending from my memory compared to others (yes, I’m talking about stuff like My Bromance The Movie etc.).
It did end really corny and with a lot of questions popping up but on the other end it was like the producers doing just what we wanted them too. They solved the whole mystery surrounding Mes’ death (shock! Did I expect that? I had my suspicions but never though they would go that far o.O ) and gave us a wonderful cry-all-you-want scene. I loved that Than came clean with everyone in the end and told them about Mes, even if he still plays some jokes on them, but still, they are his best friends, and I love how supportive they are. And we got another kiss!

I had my doubts about Singto and Ohm’s chemistry especially because they had to fill some big shoes after SOTUS but they did great. I think that’s partly because there was a total different dynamic between them than between Arthit and Kongpob but also because the actors seem to be pretty comfortable with each other and tbh I enjoyed them together a lot.

coming-04a

Also compliments to Singto for making me forget that Kongpob had the same face 😀 Ohm and Singto both have this energy about them just sucking you into the story and forgetting other stories while watching. Big compliments to all the actors, the writers, the production team and please give us more of them!
And good luck, Khiem, for your new love 😉

Ongoing – check it out

Regarding other news…there aren’t many new things just a few news and me telling you to maybe check out HIStory3: Trap. It has a totally different dynamic than the previous ones, especially because this time they are both grown-ups having a job (or something like a job) and not students or at college. I’m really starting to enjoy it. At first I thought the pace was really slow but it’s actually quite nice paced. I will probably publish a mid-season review too but still. Also, guys, there are three episodes a week, when do we ever get that?

So if they go on like this, it is a worthy installment of the HIStory series, but let’s wait and see 🙂

Note: I still don’t know whether it is named HIStory3: Trap or HIStory3: Trapped though…in the posters it says Trapped but everyone just calls it Trap?!

875d50765a99eb35d3351e7d22cccbe498acc6c2r1-1313-960v2_hq

Another HIStory news: We still don’t have fixed release dates but HIStory3: Miracle will probably come around summer or fall and HIStory2: Boundary Crossing 2 is probably going to be released either the end of this year or its looking at a 2020 release. None of this is a sure thing but just the highest probability I guess.

The Best Twins, another currently airing show, is slowly moving forward and while also giving us one joke after another, the romance is moving along real slow, like reeeeeeaaaaal slow. We do kind of get a picture of where it is going though, so at least we have that.

8ma05qba_400x400

As for What The Duck 2: Final Call…I’m still watching but I gave up every hope of someone being able to save this show. They made this mess and it seems to be impossible to get out of it. I’ll keep you up to date though, so if something interesting happens, I’ll tell you. Let’s see if they manage to save the show, somehow.

Love Beyond Frontier – don’t we know them?

GMMTV released more trailers for their 2019 line up. One of them (even if not a BL series) is Love Beyond Frontier and tbh it looks amazing. In general it seems to be about four people living under one roof and falling in love with the wrong person. Don’t know whether it will end well, but the trailer looks great, funny and serious at the same time and I cannot wait to see all of the actors again! I even know the actresses!!! Excited. Starts May 12th. Here is the trailer, ENG SUBs available

Shazam! – Short and neat

I also recently went to the cinema to watch Shazam! and I did mention before you just need to think of it as a comedy and less as a super hero movie and I still stand by that comment. If you want to compare it to other super hero movies…there is none. This movie is pretty much the funny PG version of Deadpool for DC. And I love it. It is funny and while corny at some points, it has a charm that many other movies don’t have. And also, while Zachary Levi did look strange in this costume (who wouldn’t?) he did great and convinced as the kid in a super hero body. Also compliments to Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer. Both convinced in their roles and definitely gave it their best, I hope I see them in other movies again soon!

And while I do say the film is comedic, it is more serious than I expected it to be in the beginning, so I definitely recommend checking it out 🙂

Otherwise there are no more news I really want to share…maybe I’ll remember something, then I’ll post it with the next #randomremarks though, so this is it for now 😀

So lucky #randomremarks

I recently decided that I’d like to post some updates regularly. Updates like: what is new in the BL world, what kind of song releases are interesting at the moment, what movies are in the cinema right now and so on.

You can find the first one of these, here.

So what is new this week?
We got some new BL news also a short review on Dumbo. Maybe I’m gonna give you a full one later on. Also we got some new trailers.

Dreams coming true (BL corner)

Mark it in the calendar, next week is the finale of He’s Coming To Me. I don’t know whether to be excited or afraid …

ohm-singto-01

I think something that has a lot of BL fans taking a big breath at the moment is this little special called Reminders (or ReminderS). If you have not heard about it yet, here is your chance to find out why everyone is going crazy right now: It was pretty clear from the beginning that the widely popular series Love By Chance is not going to get another season. There were so many troubles regarding the airing and channel changing of the series that it was like 95% sure there was not gonna be another one and so a lot of people prayed for another season and a little miracle. Well, we are not exactly getting another season but we are getting something.

xevwxf

ReminderS tells the story of three couples and yes, two of them are build with the actors from Love By Chance. We are about to see more of Perth and Saint and Mean and Plan and can go crazy about them again. One thing you need to keep in mind though – the characters are not AePete/TinCan. Yes, I heard it is because the rights for the story went back to the author recently and since there have been some problems in the beginning when LINE TV took over the airing of LBC, so they probably couldn’t mention the characters anymore and changed it. Do not worry though, since the new characters are just as amazing, maybe with a few additional character traits but all of them having some parts of their initial characters in them.

pwe08f

Another big surprise from ReminderS, though, is nothing other than Phun and Noh from Love Sick coming back! Yes, even before the announced third season of the series, we are getting a little snippet of them and I just could not stop smiling while watching it. I just love them so much and Love Sick is such a classic and started so much for me that I cannot wait!!! So only episode 1 aired already, the other episodes coming on Friday, 19th and I think Sunday, 21st (but not sure about the second one though), and I can tell you, I love seeing the LBC actors together, I love their new character traits but what I love even more: Phun and Noh more grown up, still having some of their charm from Love Sick and the chemistry still being there! I also really appreciate that they seem to be the most stable couple in this 3 episode “reminder” 🙂 Maybe the director decided to keep the big drama to the third season and give us a treat with a drama free short special…hahahahaha, we all know that’s not gonna happen 😀

I mean we all know they just want to make some promotion for Love Sick and also give fans something in return with the LBC couples and PhunNoh but still, I’m excited! So episode one already aired, episode is out on April 20th!!

For BL fans there is also other good news, we are getting some Love By Chance candies in general. While it is not totally clear yet if the whole thing is with the Love By Chance characters or if it’s just the same actors playing different roles – though I doubt that since even two of the couples are the same, did not see AePete though (probably same problem as mentioned above), but Perth (Ae’s actor) is coming back. Well there are gonna be three movies called Love: Must Fight, Love: Must Slap and Love: Must Take It Off and they feature some of our favourite couples bringing us smiles and hopefully no tears this time!! Other good news, release date is May 5th.

Get ready for a full on Disney year! (Movie Mania corner)

Disney has never been a company that releases a movie trailer like a month before the actual release. Usually they release a teaser around a year before and a full on trailer at least three to four months prior. Well, with this in mind, I waited for the actual The Lion King trailer on the edge of my seat. There were some doubts since they could have released the trailer on the same day Aladdin starts in cinema but fortunately they kept to their usual and released it two days ago.

Soooo…The Lion King seems to have the same problem as Aladdin, the villain sounds too smooth and soft but while I was surprised by Scar’s voice I was more interested and excited for Simba’s voice…well, Disney decided to keep that for themselves for some time more. You hear Scar, Timon and Pumba and Mufasa but no Simba. But I did enjoy the little singing snippet of Timon and Pumba at the end. I am still curious how they are going to animate all the other song sequences – since seriously, The Lion King is so famous for its music, you cannot make a movie without the musical sequences – but since they seem to have done a great job with Aladdin, I am going to believe in Disney and trust them to make my favourite Disney movie into a must-watch miracle. (haha…no pressure at all, I know)

As for the Dumbo movie, I just watched it in cinema this week (or since I am going to release this on Tuesday, it would be last week then): The animation is nice and the acting is really great, especially since I watched it in Spanish and I may not have understood everything they said but those parts I did not understand I understood with their acting 🙂 The only flaw the movie really has is the fact that it is sooooo cheesy. Like a serious cringe factor. It is endearing and charming and sweet but if you cannot watch a romance or kids movie without cringing, this one will probably make you cringe too. The few but still existing funny snippets of the movie are great though and the chemistry between all the actors seems really nice and binds everything together. Also Dumbo is so cute ❤

dumbo_sb5gr

Oh and today I went and watched The Kid Who Would Be King. Short review: the CGI and production of the movie is amazing, the actors are more than just nice, you can see they give it their all and they definitely succeeded. The humor is really funny and the modern spin on the movie is like a fresh breath of air. There are a few overly cheesy and dramatic scenes though, so if you are like me and don’t shy away from watching a movie made for a younger audience even though you are not part of that predicted audience, feel free to watch and enjoy! I had a blast even though I had to go to the toilet in the middle of it…don’t drink too much coke guys!

K-Pop comebacks and dance covers (K-Pop corner)

From the K-Pop perspective or the TV show corner I don’t really have many news for you.

BTS had a comeback which would be awesome but well…I don’t actually like the title song as much as the previous songs 😥 I do like the Dionysos track though. That and its performance version is amazing!!

Also, side note, don’t put “Kpop in public” as a search term in youtube…you will pretty much only get Kill This Love covers…still I have to admit the energy in the one below is awesome!

Renewals and Cancellations coming up…(TV Mania corner)

Game of Thrones is releasing new content to promote its final season and has already started airing. I’m waiting for the finale and then binge watch it but if you want to have a blast and the excitement of not spoiling it for yourself, do it like a normal person and watch it regularly (yes, I’m not a normal person regarding TV shows, if you haven’t noticed ;))

Also renewal and cancellation time is coming up guys. April and May are like the second time of the year (after the new year, new news period of series news) TV channels are releasing news about TV show renewals and cancellations. Also streaming services are giving out some news.

After 7 seasons, Arrow has been renewed for a 10 episode final 8th season. Also Supernatural is getting a final 15th season and ending after, I grew up with this show so it’s quite harsh T.T

maxresdefault

Here a very short overview of other shows:

Renewed: A Million Little Things (excited for it and happy for them, the show seems nice and I do plan on checking it out as soon as possible); The Good Doctor (I’m a 100% on board with the original Korean version but I appreciate that a successful remake has finally been made); Modern Family has been renewed for a final 11th season (never watched it, tried it, didn’t like it, sorry); Criminal Minds (gonna end o.O renewed for a final season though); God Friended Me (yes!!!); Magnum P.I. (I still didn’t get to check it out, lucky I get more time now); NCIS; Young Sheldon (for two more seasons even); The Resident (YES!); Brooklyn Nine-Nine (yay :D); Chicago Fire / Med / P.D. (Yay!); Manifest (a surprise tbh, but I like it ^.^); New Amsterdam (it’s getting more awesome by the minute); Legacies (I’m still angry with the ending of The Originals and while I did want to watch it I kind of lost interest); Dynasty (I’m enjoying this show more and more so keep going!); The Flash
Not clear yet are some of the newer shows like Single Parents, Whiskey Cavalier and The Rookie. I only watched Single Parents though and I really hope it gets another season. Also another show hanging is Bull – please don’t cancel it!!! Also MacGyver…I love that show, but no news yet…
Cancelled: Elementary (nooooo T.T); Code Black (I watched a little bit of season one but that was it); The Big Bang Theory (I do think that’s been known for some time that the finale is airing this year); The Gifted (hm…I like some parts of it but not really the whole show); Gotham (I have season one on DVD since some time ago but never watched it, tbh); Midnight, Texas (that show was kind of addicting though)

More detailed list HERE.

On a more positive note, I recently purchased Deadly Class on Amazon after they finally published it there. Still haven’t watched the last two episodes of season one but I guarantee, this show is absolutely awesome and the most binge worthy material I’ve seen in a long time!!!

dc-header1

Ending: Don’t forget Avengers: Endgame is coming! And beware the movie is 3h (and I think, 58 seconds) long and there is NO INTERMISSION. Since I hate going to the toilet while in the cinema (but it always happens, since the coke seems to go in and want to immediately come out again), my mind is like YES! My head who knows I’m gonna have to visit the restroom for sure, decided to just bring someone along who can go with me and tell me what happened while I was gone 😉

So, this is the newest #randomremarks update. I hope you liked it. I’m thinking of posting it like every two weeks or whenever there is something new coming out. Hope I can keept that up ^.^

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.

d083c8nwoaabkyc

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

great-men-academy-great-men-academy

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.

kill-it-poster-ocn-9

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
