I am catching up. It is really hard to squeeze in my addiction to asian dramas and movies but this is a different weekend for me. I have a long list of Chinese and Korean movies to watch. I might even be able to watch a few episodes of recent dramas.

The movie, Going By The Book was a good way to start my date with asian actors. I missed a lot of movies and dramas this year and I will try my best to see them all this weekend.

In the past year, I was trying to remember two chinese movies I watched several years ago. I fell in love with the story and I totally forgot the titles. I am just glad that I was able to accidentally bump into one of them. I wrote an article about Wu Chun’s new movie, Butterfly Lovers a couple of days ago and when I read about the synopsis of the movie, I immediately realized that the older version of Butterfly Lovers was what I was looking for so long. I was so happy that I found the older version in crunchyroll.

Now, my only dilemna is finding the other one. All I can remember from the other movie was there was two people who I believe is in love with one another and somehow they can transport to another time via electricity or light. It was a chinese period movie. If you guys have any idea on that movie, pls give me a holler.

I am looking forward in watching the following movies:

Red Cliff, Three Kingdoms, Lust and Caution, Girl Scout, Frivolous Wife, The Chaser, Le Grand Chef etc. Some of these movies are already with me but some of them I am still waiting for a good friend to send over. Plus a few episodes of Gourmet, Strongest Chil Woo and When Night Comes.

I did not realized that I stopped blogging for over a month now and I think Google and the rest of the world wide web have forgotten my existence. I was too darn busy to keep on blogging my asian drama addiction. I never thought there will come a time that I needed to set it aside. I even altogether devoted my time on other more “important” things. I have not watched any asian drama in the past month or so.

Sad, isn’t it? The very last korean drama series I was able to watch from Episode 1 til the end was Formidable Rivals a.k.a Powerful Opponents. My heart kept on bleeding when I hear people talk about Kim Rae Won’s Gourmet. He’s my first Korean crush and I was not able to follow it regularly. I am also frustrated because Lee Dong Gun and Kim Sun Ah’s series is being aired already and I go no time to check it out but I heard the ratings are not that good, wonder why? I was down and out when I was not able to offer a post for my favorite Gong Yoo when he celebrated his birthday. The only consolation I had was that Yoon Eun Hye is still not doing any drama or movie as of this moment and Bae Yong Joon is still resting.

Don’t let me start on the Taiwanese Dramas and the Jdoramas and the Pinoy Teleseryes and the Thai Lakorns. I have been missing a lot of great dramas lately.

I was able to watch around 5 episodes of the Taiwan hit Fated To Love but my work got in the way so I said goodbye to Cun Xi and Xin Yi temporarily. I did not even had the chance to google Taiwan’s Honey and Clover. I was hoping I will get a lot of Joe Cheng but…Whew!

Even the Pinoy Teleseryes have to take a backseat. I was hoping I can fully follow two korean remakes, My Girl and Kim Sam Soon but unfortunately, I only saw bits and pieces. My li’l sis told me that she was quite disappointed with the way the character of Sam Soon was written. She was supposed to be a cool girl with a devil may care attitude but the pinoy writers made her such a crybaby. BUT she said that Mark Anthony as Sam Shik is deliciously yummy.

I am back with a vengeance…uh oh…be careful what you say…errr…I’m not promising anything but I will surely be back in my old form…hopefully. To those who kept on checking my blog, HUGE THANKS! I miss you all.

Enough said!
