drama reviewss

I realised I'm such a failure. I made the blog URL blackkeyetude because I wanted to learn how to play it, but I still can't play it completely well yet. Same for many other things. I want to do them but end up doing it halfway.

Anyway, I've been wanting to update my blog but I was lazy. So I'm only doing this now. :/ Lazy bum. I must change my laziness if I want to get my first class honours.

I've finished watching many dramas now, including You Who Came From The Stars and Moon Embracing The Sun. Gahhh.... I really like Kim Soo Hyun haha. I started noticing him since Dream High. Song Sam Dong was really cute and such a bumpkin. I like his voice too, although he did break his voice during live performances haha.

You Who Came From The Stars
I remember vividly that there was this interview scene at the end of an episode, and Do Min Joon/Kim Soo Hyun just squeezed out buckets of tears within seconds. Oh my god. How do you even do that? I'm such a crybaby and I can't even match up to that. Indeed, one of those with the best crying skills in dramaland, I agree with Dramabeans.

I don't know why Kim Soo Hyun always get paired up with older women... Ok, not always (Suzy). But it's true in both dramas. Han Ga In looks young for her age, so it's more or less okay, but Jeon Ji Hyun? I'm sorry, Jeon Ji Hyun looks just her age, so the image is a little weird in YWCFTS.

Moon Embracing The Sun
Wow I don't know if I'm able to get more and more absorbed into dramas/acting, but I think I cried the most with this drama. This drama is short for a period drama/sageuk, and I feel that the political part of the drama is a bit lacking. Because the romance is overpowering the political parts.

Kim Soo Hyun can cry extremely well, but when he's angry at the bad guy ministers, he just yells like he's throwing a tantrum. Because for me, I think this kind of situation should be acted by speaking louder and being more charismatic, manly, confident and like a KING, because he's trying to deal with and show the bad guys that he is all grown up and ready to fight them. Regardless of that, I still love Kim Soo Hyun! Yay.

I really like the song 시간을 거슬러 (Back in Time) – Lyn!!!!!!!!!! although I only remember three words out of the entire song haha

Oh and I'm impressed with the child actors too. Yeo Jin Goo's voice is so deep for his age, and the Mandarin dubbing on Channel U is totally not matching a crown prince and is vastly different from the original as it's higher pitched and sharper. I always prefer the original audio. Kim Yoo Jung is brilliant as always. [EDIT: I really loved the childhood portion, maybe this is why from Dramabeans " I actually think the reason everyone praises the childhood portion of this drama compared to the adult years has little to do with the actors, and more to do with the characters. They were young, idealistic, and had wide-open possibilities. They spoke their minds and wanted to change the world. Of course we rooted for them.
But they quickly grew up into dutiful, passive adults who time and again let other people decide how their lives would be. Yang-myung giving up like that was just the nail in the coffin for me. Yes, Hwon turned it around in the end, but it doesn’t make up for the drama hours I spent watching him be a shell of his former spunky prince. Had THAT been the central focus of the drama, it might’ve helped to ground the conflict in something a little meatier than restoring the princess bride to her rightful place."]

In this drama, there were a few characters that I felt were really pitiful, like Seol (she had unrequited love for Yeom and sacrificed herself while saving him), Yang Myung Goon (destined to be the second Sun, he didn't get anything he wanted: his dad's love and Yeon Woo. Well his dad loved him but didn't show it. And he got rejected by the same person, Yeon Woo/Wol twice. :( And he let himself get killed to protect his brother from similar future situations) and Yoon Bo Kyung (she loved Lee Hwon but he never loved her and he treated her with harsh words after their marriage. She committed suicide because her dad abandoned her for power so she knew she was going to lose her position whether Lee Hwon or her dad won. So sad. Apart from the fact that she ordered young Seol to be beaten up severely just because Seol dirtied her clothes, she wasn't that evil.)

I really admire Yeon Woo. She's a very intelligent and wise girl, and she is also thoughtful and caring. She loves reading books, and she can still concentrate on her 韩非子 book even when her beloved Hwon is right in front of her after 8 years lol. I hope when I get a boyfriend, I'll be able to study with him instead of getting distracted.

I'm also at the last ep of Can You Hear My Heart, but it's draggy...

Whoever reads this, don't judge. Because I'm just writing this while being emo. But nobody visits my blog anyway. That's why there's no need to privatise this blog.

I discovered 2 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer today. I couldn't believe how such an expensive brand of ice cream appeared in my house. I was shocked. I felt so touched, and I actually couldn't bear to even start eating it, which never happens for regular ice cream like Walls.

And just now, Mum just came home, and I asked her when she bought it. She went, "Oh, right. I bought that for daddy because he's too skinny." I felt damn disappointed, you can't even imagine how someone would feel over merely ice cream. I asked her why she didn't buy Häagen-Dazs for me. Then she said something like: Buy for you? It's Mothers' Day, and you didn't even buy for me. I felt damn wronged I started crying. I know I cry over little things. SO WHAT. I usually just eat cheap ice cream, and I could even feel touched over seeing Häagen-Dazs in my house. I was never willing to splurge over my favourite dessert, and I always just buy cheap alternatives. I had to go…

One of the Things I Hate The Most

Today morning, Mummy flew to Penang to for my Ah Ma's wake, so my Er Gu Zhang is staying at my house while she's away, to ensure Daddy won't starve or fall down. Bcos I go to school until quite late.

Oh yeah, lemme digress a bit first. I had my LSM3211 CA1 today, and although I didn't finish studying, I felt that it was so much better than last sem. What's different is that I tried harder to study this time, and yesterday night, I managed to stop myself from watching the latest episodes of 2D1N and 稍息立正我爱你! I know the proper thing to do is to finish studying, but I really did improve from last sem. For that, I need to praise myself, encourage myself, pat myself, because I learned that scolding myself is just going to discourage me. I have been a bad student since secondary school, and I think I've improved the most in this period of time. I am a perfectionist. I am not praising myself, because that's not a good thing. My brain used to turn off every time th…


WHY DOES IT ALWAYS HAPPEN?! WHY CAN'T I CONTROL MYSELF BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE? I'm so sorry mummy. You're always so hardworking to raise me, but I never studied hard. Now my lab report is going to be late. Why do I always regret only when it's too late, but I repeat it again and again every time even though I know the consequences? I really hope this is the last time. Do not repeat your mistakes please Huai Tian. I feel so exhausted at my own behaviour and how I always give in to watching shows until I'm right before the deadline. Why am I like that? I even went to visit the counsellor. Why can't I change? I feel so bad for my mum... that she only has one daughter but I turned out like this. Please. I want to pull back my grades back up. PLEASE
