Whatcha Watchin’ – February 8th: Welcome to Black History Month

It is Black History month! Also Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Annndddd Mercury is in retrograde so if you’re feeling a little bit fucked up, well grab the wine and ignore the texts from the exes!!!

Sugar Baby Unnie

Can I live? Can I live? Can I fucking live? Sigh. So like I dropped Lost Romance because fuck that shit. I felt a visceral and physical pain while watching this. I had to tap out. I have shows on the radar, but I don’t want to think about it.. LOL. So …

Korean Dramas

Love Scene Number: I love when Kdramas decide to go woman centric and give us fresh ideas. It is currently airing with very limited subs, but I like what I am seeing. BTW they are not in a polyamorous relationship yanno, home girl is straight cheating, but like ya know fuck men anyways.

Run On: Yes, I know this has ended but I haven’t ended my journey with it yet so leave me alone. I have four more episodes that I will eventually get to. Don’t rush me!!

The Penthouse: Okay so there’s gonna be a season two starting soon AND a season three…. Damnnnn. Anyways I’m chugging along. Hehehe.

Chinese Dramas

Begin Again: I picked this back up again. We’re just gonna power through hehe. It’s a little corny, but not in the fun way. I hate that it is embracing the bullshit that is women are only fulfilled by marriage and babies. Fuck off. In other news, spare cock, Gong Jun?

Love Unexpected: I did a first impression post on this one! It is so goofy with a little bit of heart. Hard to believe MGTV allowed all these innuendos to exist hehe.

Lazy Unnie

I can’t believe I actually finished a show! But with that, it’s given me some needed boost to really get back into dramas. Let’s see if I can ride this wave.

Dramas

Strongest Deliveryman – Same old, same old. Gonna bust it out sometime this month. Maybe in two weeks. We will see.

To All The Men Who Loved Me– This is still going strong. And since True Beauty is finished for me, I can focus on this being my second completed show of 2021. But I already can see why people may have not liked this show. There are some plot choices I don’t really agree with. But I’m pushing through.

Go Go Squid 2: DT, Appledog’s Time – I didn’t know about this until Sugar Baby told me it was coming. I started episode one. I don’t know how I feel about it because it feels like a whole new universe. But I will give it a try because we know I’m obsessed with Hu Yitian.

What’s On Deck?

The Uncanny Counter – STILL COMING REALLY SOON….

Lovestruck in the City – MAYBE COMING SOON….

Hello, Me! – This is one I’m really excited to watch. I have been waiting for Kim Young Kwang’s drama return since The Secret life of my Secretary. This seems a little goofy from the previews but I’m okay with that. This might be a joint watch for me and Sugar Baby.


First Impressions: Love Unexpected

After the disaster that was Lost Romance, I decided that I needed a palette cleanser. The trailer for this drama caught my attention and here I am with a first impressions post! Read my thoughts below!


Love Unexpected


Genre: Romance, Comedy
Origin: China
Episodes: 24
Air-date: January 31, 2021 to present
Starring: Kris Fan as Xu Nuo, Judy Qi as Ke Si Yi, Zha Jie as Liang Zhi Xiao, Wang Xu Dong as Zhou Yan Xin, Shen Yao as Lin Wen, Zhang Chu Xuan as Li Yun Zhu

A sweet love story between an emotionally detached CEO and a female bodyguard who is full of empathy.

A series of unexpected romances have arrived. Xu Nuo who has been suffering from alexithymia meets his match in bodyguard Ke Siyi. Elite variety show producer Liang Zhixiao encounters the goddess of hardcore combat while lawyer Zhou Yanxin crosses paths with a female boxer.

chinesedrama info

Thoughts: I’ve seen four episodes of this drama so far and can I tell y’all that I’ve cracked up in every single episode???? I’m having a grand old time with this one. No lie. I really didn’t even think I would, but it has elements that I really enjoy. This drama was pitched as a loosely based Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, but that isn’t really quite the case. The only comparison is really that she’s his bodyguard and it stops there. She’s not like cartoonishly strong or anything, matter of fact, she had to be trained to become his bodyguard. There is an element of fantasy to it, as somehow our male lead is able to feel the pain for our female lead. Is it only physical pain? We’re not quite sure. I believe not and that there might be a case where each gets to feel a certain emotion for the other based on what I saw on the trailer? Oh well, I can tell ya with certainty how my ass was cracking tf up when he had her period cramps. There’s also a little bit of comedic raunchiness that I’ve been enjoying as well. Naturally our leads have all kinds of connection to each other, but listen, I ain’t even mad about it. Haha. I’m also not mad about any side couple development (so far) because the other two girls are so interesting! I will definitely be continuing with this and will keep you updated during our Watcha Watchin’!

Recommendations: If you’re into comedy, enjoy bickering romances and need something fluffy.

Lazy Unnie’s Couch: True Beauty

True Beauty is a romantic comedy about a high school girl Lim Ju Gyeong, who rises to pretty girl fame after she masters the art of make-up from YouTube. She turns into a goddess because of her makeup skills, but would rather die than reveal her bare face to anyone. It tells her love story with the only boy that saw her without makeup, Lee Su Ho. Lee is an attractive and handsome boy who appears cold because of his dark past but is actually very caring. They grow when they meet each other sharing their secrets and finding love with each other, but can Su Ho make Ju Gyeong find her true beauty?

  • Network : tvN
  • Where to Watch: Viki


It has been a while since I’ve become obsessed with a drama. And by a while, I mean like two month. Anyway, True Beauty was the latest weekly obsession in my life. Practically everyone else’s as well. A show that was based off a currently updating webtoon about a girl who was born not the prettiest of the bunch, uses makeup to disguise her unwanted features after dealing with a horrific bullying incident at her previous school. The plot is pretty straight forward when it comes to what’s going on. Especially in the romance department. Im Ju Gyeong, our lead, isn’t really torn between our two male leads, Lee Suho and Han Seo Jun. It turns out that us viewers are more torn. I haven’t seen this many #Team’s on social media since #TeamEdward and #TeamJacob fights.

As I was saying, the plot is pretty cliché and your typical high school drama tropes are all present. One-sided love, misunderstandings, jealous second leads. All of it is present. And you would think that it wouldn’t work but it is Moon Ga Young’s performance as our lead that really sells the story. Her portrayal of Im Ju Gyeong is both relatable and sweet. It really loved the scenes where she really got vulnerable about the insecurities she felt being the ugly duckling in her family. Another thing I really liked was yes, she wore the makeup as an armor but when she was home, she was still just her horror comic, heavy metal, spicy food loving self.

Now the romance on the other hand… I’m a sucker for a good love triangle and I would love to say this was a good one, but lets be honest… Seo Jun had no chance. When you throw in a childhood meetcute, you know our second lead, no matter how much better a choice he is for the lead, he is not getting the girl. Speaking of Seo Jun… WHOA! Hwang In Yeop did his damn thing as the bad boy exterior with the soft gooey center. Watching his progression from first meeting Ju Gyeong to the end when he has to basically bottle up his heart… it was beautiful and painful. He deserved better.

Me at Ju Gyeong when she curbed my boy Seo Jun

As I come down from my rage and depression of the mistreatment of my second lead, let me discuss some of the other points I found enjoyable. I really REALLY loved Im Ju Gyeong’s family, especially the love story between her sister and her Homeroom teacher. It was intentionally atypical and I ate that shit up. Another aspect that I appreciated was how the topic of bullying and its outcomes were handled. Bullying is such an issue and I think they handled it in a way that wasn’t tacky. Then there was Kang Su Jin. Besides the romantic relationships that Ju Gyeong had, what she really wanted was friendships and she got that with Su Jin and Choi Soo Ah. But it was Kang Su Jin that really had a storyline that I felt could have been explored more. The physical and mental abuse she endured really rounded her out as a character and I would have loved to see even more of her backstory. I know everyone, myself included, was pissed at her villain turn but I think it just made her redemption arc better. Brava.

Even though I 90% loved this show, there was one debbie downer to the whole thing, and sadly that was our main Mr. Lee Su Ho aka Cha Eun Woo. Let me preface with saying that I was really okay with his OTP with Im Ju Gyeong, but his acting really brought the character down. I will give him credit and say his acting has improved since I watched him in My ID is Gangnam Beauty, but that isn’t saying much. He just felt wooden at the worst times. And when he tried different things, they felt awkward and out of place. FNC, please just pay for acting classes, please, I know you got some money somewhere.

The ending wrapped up with a nice little bow, even though I feel like they should have went more open ended and given us a second season at least since the webtoon isn’t even completed. But for what it was, I was in love with this drama. All it means is I can wait for Hwang in Yeop and Moon Ga Young to do something together instead. Or maybe we can have a world crossover between True Beauty and Extra-Ordinary You like we did with the cameo’s… one can wish.

I LOVE YOU LEE JAE WOOK

Sugar Baby’s Review Corner: Cheat On Me, If You Can

Cheat On Me, If You Can


Genre: Comedy, Romance, Thriller
Origin: South Korea
Episodes: 16
Air-date: December 2, 2020 to January 28, 2021
Starring: Cho Yeong Jeong as Kang Yeo Joo, Go Jun as Han Woo Sung, Kim Young Dae as Cha Soo Ho, Yeonwoo as Go Mi Rae

A comical mystery thriller between a divorce lawyer and his wife, a criminal novelist who only thinks about how to kill people. She wrote a memorandum saying, ‘If you cheat, you die’.

Wikipedia

When I first saw this drama, I truly had no intention to even start it. The reason I ended up starting this drama was simply because I needed to watch more viki pass plus dramas since I now unfortunately have a subscription. I was very adverse to another cheating drama, but I love watching Cho Yeong Jeong in her roles and settled on this. I DO NOT REGRET IT AT ALL. I had so much fun watching this drama yall. Like SO MUCH FUN.

This drama was very well done imo. I am still reeling off of the last two episodes because I am sitting here like wait but that kinda makes sense though! I think the charm of this drama is that it asks you to believe in the improbability of certain things happening and is filled with red herrings. I can understand for a lot of viewers how this can be frustrating especially when it moves at a slow pace in a circular movement. However, as someone who enjoys these type of shows, I didn’t find it frustrating at all. Once we got to episode three, I was like basically anything that happened where it seemed like she found out her husband cheated is not true. I also did not expect them to reveal who the killer was until the end. There is a complaint that the ending was rushed but I really don’t see it as such. Another complaint is that they didn’t understand the various side characters and the points they served to the story, but like I am sorry that you are not big brained enough to connect the dots. It is quite clear that everyone served to tell Kang Yeo Joo’s story. It made sense to me that the entire premise of this show wasn’t her finding out her husband cheated on her and trying to exact revenge.

(SLIGHT SPOILER AHEAD) One of the things about the story that I had a hard time understanding was why with all of Kang Yeo Joo’s intelligence did she never pick up on him cheating on her. However, I think that the final episode really honed in on her temperament. Her major aversion to cheating was explained well and I can’t say I blame her. She really loves her husband and was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. After all she spent more than half their marriage telling him what would happen if he did cheat on her. She said she would rather be a widow than a divorcee and I respect that. Even in the scenes where he attempts to tell her that he cheated, she misunderstands it to be something else. He also did a really good job of providing his mistresses with the same products that she uses and using his friend to cover up his actions and passing the blame onto their family. The heartbreak in her face when she asks why does everyone suspect her to be the killer when she has no reason was hard to see and in the final moments when she is told by the detective that her husband has indeed been very unfaithful to her, I was like yes bitch KILL THAT MOTHERFUCKER. It was poetic that the last episode ended with the scene similar to the one that the first episode ended with. It could also have been interpreted that Yeo Joo was aware of the misdiscretions and felt shame that everyone but her knew about this once. EITHER WAY HE GOT STABBED AND THAT IS ON PERIODT. (END SPOILER)

Naturally the standout acting was done by Cho Yeong Jeong. She was able to deliver the unique charm of Yeo Joo and tapped into the nuances of her character. Sometimes it was just the little ways that she tilted her head or squinted her eyes which delivered that strong emotion behind it. I would say that the weakest was Yeonwoo and I am not saying this because she is an idol or was one, but rather the kind of unnatural way her delivery was. I understand that Go Mi Rae was supposed to be a timid character, but even her transformation into the “bolder” version still wasn’t really much of anything. I felt a disconnect to her story because of that.

As for the music well needless to say I stand by my belief that all of Suran’s OSTs are better than any of her original stuff since Walkin’ Ep. I really enjoyed the three songs and their composition/lyrics. I thought it fit aptly with our story at hand. I also enjoyed the way the director shot various scenes even with the terribly obvious product placement.

Overall, I enjoyed this drama. It is not one without flaws, but it kept me entertained and guessing all the way through and honestly what more could I ask for? Well besides, more shirtless scenes of Kim Young Dae! I would definitely recommend!

Lazy Unnie’s Playlist: CIX – Hello Chapter 0: Hello, Strange Dream

TITLE: Hello Chapter 0: Hello, Strange Dream

ARTIST: CIX

LABEL: C9 Entertainment

RELEASED: February 02, 2021

I feel like Jungle was just released, but I’m not complaining about the new release from my favorites. It feels nice to have them back doing what they do best. I love it, my wallet does not. Damn me and my collecting mind. Anyway, lets get into it.

Cinema – Title Track

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I am OBSESSED! The song was just released and I can’t stop listening to it. It’s a refreshing funky, pop track that really highlights our vocalists and even baby BX is singing it up in this. CIX debuted with Movie Star, so it feels fitting to have a song named Cinema. And it truly makes me want to be their leading lady, or the Noona in this rom-com in my head. I digress, the melody is simple but the hook is catchy and def has me singing over in my head all day.

Stairway To Heaven

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We finally have gotten a ballad from CIX! On first listen, it reminds me of something Wanna One would have done or has done, but I ain’t mad at it. The soft orchestral pop fits with Seunghun and Jinyoung’s tones. The song really lulls me until BX comes in with his baritone rap. I swoon.

Round 2

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This is a sound I didn’t really expect from the group. A Lo-Fi Hip-Hop R&B mix of a song. I don’t know why I didn’t because it actually really fits their sound esthetic. The falsettos of vocal line and the deep raps from BX really lend to this sound. But it’s the almost acapella bridge with beatboxing that makes this song really special.

Young

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Another unexpected turn for CIX is this song. It’s a genre mashup that I don’t know where to start with it. On the surface, it shouldn’t work because you don’t know where the song is going but the constant rock elements really elevate this song and I will say it’s definitely a grower.

Everything

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

If I can pick a second favorite song, this would be it. Not to sound corny, but this song is EVERYTHING! It’s a little understated in its delivery but there are little moments that make it stand out. The pre-chorus in particular is addicting and catchy as hell. I’m in love.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I have been messing with CIX since their debut and I can say that they usually are consistent with their delivery. Hello Chapter 3 wasn’t my favorite even though it was decent and it really put them on people’s radar. However, this is probably my favorite EP from them and I would kill to have a full length album if the tracks are along these lines. And that’s me saying this when I’m a Numb enthusiast. This group is growing and experimenting with each release and I love that they aren’t putting out carbon copies of what all the other boy groups this gen are doing. Keep up the good work!

Monthly Roundup – January

Wow 2021 huh? We really barely survived the shit show that was 2020. I really believe it will go down in history as such a trash ass year. But you know what was kinda funny? For such a trash ass year we received a fairly decent number of music. Might have been one of KPOP’s best since like 2016 tbh. I hope that we are all proud of me cause I made it all the way to the end of the year. Kiii.

So I was a lazy fart this month and only listened to songs like yesterday. WHY WERE THERE SO MANY RELEASES????? Sighs. I gave men way too many rights this month. Very sad.

ALL BY MYSELF

Dalsooobin – Eyes Like Cloud

She’s a singer!! She loves to sing!! Let’s get it going. I really just enjoy Subin’s voice so much I find it beautiful and soothing.

Coogie – Pow (Gray)

You know what’s weird? I don’t think I like much of Coogie’s stuff, but this is actually not bad at all. Oh wow. Kinda shook. Please leave me a second while I mull over the fact that I didn’t dislike this.

Yubin – Perfume

Oh yes we stan this music! Yubin bitch!! This is perfection! The retro vibes will always be a hit with me. I love that this is the new trend.

Alexa – Never Let You Go

A very different style than usual Alexa. YAWN. I love her hair color! It is so pretty!

U-KNOW – Thank U

Why did his ass do a whole movie? I am dead. Hahahah. Song is fine. Nothing I will revisit.

U-Know – Eeny Meeny

You know .. (hAH HA HA Get it).. Yunho looks very hot lately. Is it the SM surgeons being put to good work or what idk. Seulgi has also been looking so damn good lately as well.

Chungha – X

So y’all heard that Chungha is doing a whole album with 21 songs!!! I am pretty sure that’s more songs that Blackpink’s entire career. This song is chill. A nice vibe, I will be listening to the 21 song album ehehehe.

Bobby – U Mad

That hair…. sighs. It is 2021 motherfuckers. Other than that, song is definitely a vibe.

IU – Celebrity

Queen Jieun can do no wrong by the way. A lyricist. A singer. When will any of your favs ever?!?!?!

Hyuna – I’m Not Cool

So P Nation just letting their artist release any and everything right? Why Hyuna out here sounding like Soyeon. Sighs.

THREE’S A CROWD

MCND – Crush

I mean.. It’s not bad. It could be a grower.. we shall see. Minus that dance break. Idk how I feel about that.

Treasure – My Treasure

I am sick and tired of this fucking group using Blackpink’s money. SHUT UP.

(G)-IDLE – HWA

If we just dialed back the Soyeon a little bit this would be so much better. I unfortunately do like it for what it is as long as I don’t hear that girl’s voice. I wish she had just stuck to the rapping instead of singing.

Viction – What I Said

Every boy group just feels so generic to me nowadays. They are all interchangeable. This isn’t bad to listen to though.

E’Last – Dangerous

Idk I might be a little too drunk or something. Why does this not sound bad? Ugh fuck.

Epik High – Rosario (feat CL, ZICO)

I thought Zico went to the military??!!??! KOREA EXPLAIN. Okay but the song kinda slaps . Ugh fuck x2.

Epik High – Based On A True Story (feat Heize)

Heize really only good on OSTs which is sad as hell imo.

AB6IX – Stay Young

A very easy and breezy song. I think I can enjoy the chill vibes that AB6IX offers tbh.

Cravity – My Turn

No, thank you sir. I don’t need no ride.

ONEUS – No Diggity

Idk guys I think I am back on my boy group noisy behavior. Like why does this shit slap so much? IT GOES MOTHERFUCKING HARD.

Golden Child – Burn It

Fuck it looks like men get rights this January. Whenever I like more than one boy group release for the month, I feel like I am dishonoring the misandrist in me. I feel like we were blessed to have an actual storyline for the music video with this song, Whew. I am a little obsessed.

Cherry Bullet – Love So Sweet

Very Twice inspired. I like it though. Way better than the Aloha song from last year. It has very fun beats reminiscent of their debut sound. Chaerin my queen. She’s such a performer!

Dreamcatcher – Odd Eye

They literally NEVER miss. So nice to see Handong back!

NEW KIDZ ON THE BLOCK

T1419 – 아수라발발타 (ASURABALBALTA)

T1419 is a South Korean-Japanese boy group under MLD Entertainment. They consist of 9 members: Noa, Sian, Kevin, Gunwoo, Leo, On, Zero, Kairi and Kio. They released a pre-debut single “Dracula” on October 27, 2020. They debuted on January 11th, 2021 with the 1st Single Album “BEFORE SUNRISE Part. 1“

I will be honest. I have already forgotten how they sound. It is weird that there wasn’t like 500 groups debuting this month. Maybe they all took a break?

OST

Best Song: Golden Child – Burn It


See ya next month!

Asian Drama Bingo : January Check-In

First month of 2021 has come to an end and we have seen so many things happen that we about to call 2021 season 2 of 2020. But we still working from home and making this all work. What is usually the longest month of the year, felt like the shortest, but see what we got done.

Lazy Unnie’s Card

This month was a wash for me. I watched a few shows but I finished nothing. It’s okay, just means February we going IN on the reviews.

Sugar Baby’s Card

I had more dramas that I wanted to write reviews for but idk effort was at a zero.


Whatcha Watchin’ – January 25th – Where Did January Go?

This January did not feel like all the Januaries before. It’s hard to believe it went by so quickly when January usually feels like it has been four months. As a result we have done a considerable amount less than usual. Oh well. It happens! Just bare with us and we will try to be better! I mean look at this, we’re keeping you all updated.

Sugar Baby Unnie

Nothing has improved with my watchlist. This is what happens when I watch currently airing dramas. Not really I just suck as a human being but I will not admit to this behavior. Last post, I said that there were some dramas on the radar that I would start and I still didn’t so they remain there, I just didn’t want to include the list again.

Korean Dramas

Cheat On Me, If You Can: We’re at around episode 11 now and I am still enjoying this so much. It makes me laugh and I am actually intrigued as I can’t tell if this drama is being literal or giving us a fake out. I think everyone has been perfectly casted.

Run On: The ships are everything! This is so underrated and we hate to see it. I am still only midway, but I haven’t hated the show as yet. We know midpoint is usually the make or break it.

The Penthouse: I have only watched one more episode since the last post and it’s not because it isn’t interesting, but rather me trying to figure out if that new season is really coming in February or not and if I want to put this on hold or complete it before. Choices ya know?

Other Dramas

Lost Romance: It’s a buddy watch with the cohost of Soju Chronicles and yes this is going exactly as you would expect it to be going. I just stand firm in my belief that Marcus Chang is just way too hot for his costar. We’re on episode 5 and nothing has happened. Did this drama need 20 full episodes? I think not.

Voice In The Rain: Yep! I’m watching a Thai drama that isn’t made by GMM One Studio and it must be why it feels so different to me? I’m not used to this guys. I’m undecided on whether I will continue this or not.

Lazy Unnie

So January has been a long marathon of online gaming and almost nothing else, however, I have managed to try to keep up with some shows and starting a few here and there. I really hope that I can calm the fuck down and get back to my past time of zoning out on dramas. We shall see.

Dramas

True Beauty – Still keeping up with this. I know that it’s cliche as hell and I hear that the webtoon is way better, but I can’t stop watching. I’m about a week behind but today is Monday and I have fuck all to do except watch to see what happened with Suho and Seo Jun.

Strongest Deliveryman – I guess I’m still watching this. I haven’t started another episode since the last Whatcha watching, but I still need to get my Kim Seon Ho fix somehow.

To All The Men Who Loved Me– I started this because I was in the mood for some good romantic comedy. I don’t know if this fits that criteria but I’m keeping with it because Seo Ji Hoon is slowly climbing my K-Drama boyfriend list.

What’s On Deck?

The Uncanny Counter – COMING REALLY SOON….

Lovestruck in the City – COMING SOON….

mydramalist

Heyyyy! I’m back with another Jdrama. Will I ever watch one that is normal and has a logical storyline? The answer is no. I swore I had found it with this one but like deep down I knew better. I will say though, I have yet to be proven wrong about my idea that all Jdrama heroines are idiots. Seriously if you have one that can prove different, drop it in the comments! This review took me days to write because I realized that I really had nothing to say. Lmfao.

Anyways as far as stories go this one went exactly as you would expect. There was no twists and turns. Just your average Japanese cheating drama turned into workplace romance. The selling point here is that it’s a more mature drama but everyone still acted like immature children anyways. Like you fucking your whole boss but still a bobble head? No discretion to that shit whatsoever? Just fucking all willy nilly in the place your coworkers could enter at any given point? … Okay.

The acting was fine, nothing phenomenal. I will say that I kinda have the urge to watch Coffee and Vanilla now because Sakurada Dori kinda hot, but like I’ll pick that one up after a nice palate cleanse and prepare for the equal parts ridiculousness that it will offer me. The one thing I’m still thoroughly confused about is why it’s called Perfect Crime… I mean it wasn’t really like there was a crime of some sort or anything? Idk y’all tell me in the comments.

Watch it or don’t, it doesn’t matter either way.
