On my radar

17 Aug

Watching now:
* Arang and the Magistrate
Not head over heels in love with it but it’s visually arresting and characters intriguing enough for me to want to continue checking it out.

* Fai Chon Saeng
Yes, 3rd consecutive Chompoo lakorn that I’m watching and we get twice the Chompoo in FCS ‘cos she plays twins. The story and characters are darker in this one with murders, conspiracies, vengeance and lots of slapping. There were already 4 full out cat fights in the first episode alone and our n’ek Wan emerged victorious in all of them so you know she’s not one to be trifled with. The plot is OTT with lots of DRAMATIC MUSIC and you can forget about nuanced characterization for the villains and n’rai (May again working her facial muscles to the max to entrap poor Chai) but I rather like Wan and even the weaker twin Tien and am interested to see how it all pans out for them.

It also helps that I like the theme song buuuuuuuuut I’m so annoyed that a yt comment on the ost video accidentally spoiled the ending for me! *pulls at hair* I found another video without comments so you can safely click on the link to hear the song.

To check out:
* Faith
From the blog posts that I’ve read on it so far, seems like a love-it-or-loathe-it drama. I’m neither a fan of Lee Min Ho nor Kim Hee Sun, not even that much into time travelling dramas but the story seems kinda fun?

* Kularb Rai Glai Ruk
I like Matt’s vibe from what little I’ve seen of her but still looking for a lakorn of hers that will attract me. Hopefully this will be it?

* Wanjai Kub Nai Jomying
There are 3 couples in this one so ep 1 was mostly about introducing everyone and setting the story. Wasn’t compelling enough for me to continue but I picked it up again yesterday thinking that maybe the story will start proper in ep2. I ended up being so irritated by the 3 n’eks that I promptly dumped it before the episode’s end. They waltz into a hotel for their internship and preened in front of the mirror expecting to be whipping up fancy dishes in their fancy clothes. I was already super turned off at their looks of dismay at the uniform they were supposed to wear and when they started moaning when tasked with preparing ingredients for the kitchen, it was out the door for me. Hello, a) you are an intern. You start from the bottom. Get over yourself and stop complaining. B) you work in the kitchen , not on the catwalk. What did you expect to wear?? Meh, I don’t know, it’s a small thing and maybe the audience was supposed to find them cute but I found their attitudes unbelievably obnoxious and it just killed the whole show for me. Ah pity, I liked Mart in this.

    I am favoring Arang over Faith. And I hope Arang hits Bridal Mask out of the park. Advice to everyone out there, if you haven’t watched Bridal Mask, save your sanity! It is ridiculously good at making you love to hate everything about it from poor acting to poor scripting!!! And this drags like there is no tomorrow, far worst than a Ch7 lakorn when they do extension. And if you have seem many poorly executed Ch7 lakorn, you will know what I mean. It is far worse than that. I just hate myself that I am still actually watching it, hoping and praying that it will get better. Hasn’t happen yet. There’s still 6 more episode to go. This should have really been an 16 episode drama instead of 28.

    Fai Cong Saeng, I couldn’t stomach the first few episodes but stuck thru it til the end. It’s not the best drama but it was decent.

    KRGR I try to like Matt, I don’t hate her or anything but she really doesn’t work for me. Her bratty, stuck up and strong roles pisses me off. Why can’t we have a strong, spoiled, bratty nang ek without irritating me… well with the exception of Ann (minus Chaluey Ruk lol)

    I only finished Wanjai Kub Nai Jomying because of my precious Chalida. I liked her best out of the 3. Thankfully towards the middle and end of WKNJ, there wasn’t much of Mart and Matt. And Matt here doesn’t annoy me as much.

      Haaa, I’m not interested in Bridal Mark’s story and won’t be checking it out. All my Ch7 experiences have been ruined by extensions, so extensions are a big no-no for me.
      I’m on ep3 of FCS and it’s getting a bit tiresome with everyone angry all the time. Worth sticking around till the end?
