Oh Hae Young Again

This is the drama I was obsessed about recently! Oh Hae Young Again is about an "ordinary" woman who shares the same name who has "better and greater" looks and visuals. Growing up, she was always in back, the forgotten Oh Hae Young, while the other Oh Hae Young gets all the better treatment and boys fall heads over heals for her.

One day, her fiancee dumped her and cancelled their wedding a day before it happened. She soon run into this man named Park Do Kyung. Their fate seemed to always overlap and she eventually fell for this man. Ironic part is Do Kyung's ex-fiance was the "better and greater" Oh Hae Young.

It’s heart wrenching and my heart hurts so much for this woman. Every time she wants to take a step further to building confidence, circumstances just make her take two steps back. I like that despite her very low self-esteem since elementary (always being compared to the "better" one), she strives so hard to break that stigma and just be herself.

This woman wears her heart on her sleeve, loving with all of her heart and wants nothing but to be loved in return.

I seriously think this song is such a perfect song for her.

“So I put on my make up,
Put a smile on my face
And if anyone ask me, everything is okay
I’m laughing cuz no one knows the joke is on me
Cuz I’m dying inside with my pride and a smile on my face…”

This song just truly describes what she’s been through this entire drama.

I enjoyed so much making this video, reeling in the song for OHY. Hope you`ll enjoy too!

Reply 1988 - Nothing's Gonna Change in Taek and Duk Seon's relationship

Beautiful drama. I wish the song was longer as I, unfortunately, couldn't fit all the beautiful scenes this couple had in the drama.

I thought this song was perfect for this couple who loved each other since they were 8. Three decades later, their love still continues to grow.

"Hold me now, touch me now
I don't want to live without you

Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you

One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love

The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you"

If you haven't seen this drama yet, please do! It's very heartwarming. You can't help, but wish you had their kind of love - childhood sweethearts.

Thoughts on Reply 1988

So! This post is long overdue! This has been my favourite drama of the year (up high in the rank of my all time favourites, for sure), and I wish nothing but write about how much I loved this drama, but alas! time has restricted me to express my obsession with this drama. My BluRay copy of this drama is coming out soon, sooooo I'm very excited to own that.

Reply 1988 is the third installment of the Reply series. I talked about how much I fell in love with Reply 1997 and wished that I had discovered that gem during its run. I totally missed out on the fun of being cliffhanged and the countdown just to see a new episode. I made sure this time not to miss out on 1988! I thought no installment could ever top my love for 1997. I mean, 1994 was a good run, but I wasn't fully invested in any of the characters. My love for 1988 was just on a whole  different scale. I loved it from day 1, even though I jumped on ships way too many times until I decided to fully board and be faithful in one couple.

1988 takes you back to how people were like with no technology to depend on.

Youth and young love.

^I love this scene so much.
Duk Seon tapped Taek's bum asking him to drink his milk well, so that he can grow up faster and marry her.
Little did we know, that's what exactly Taek did. He grew up and married his childhood best friend.

This post will be heavily Taek and Duk Seon-biased as I talk about how beautiful their love story is and how much I am smitten by their unconditional love for each other.

Cheese in the Trap

This drama was very controversial during its run. I have read the webtoon before the drama aired, and I was obviously shipping Seol and Jung. I thought their relationship seemed interesting yet one hot mess because of the misunderstandings that continue to build up the more their feelings get involved and deeper. I was expecting the same exact thing the moment I decided to watch the drama. However, somewhere a long the way, I was caught off guard and slowly falling in love with the wrong ship. ACK!

Here is Baek In Ho who always wears his heart on his sleeve. To be really honest, he is the most developed character in this series despite being a side character, and I think that is probably why I was unconsciously shifting to the other camp (In Ho's camp) and secretly rooting for his character. We first saw him as a messed up boy with no direction in life then became someone who pursued his dream despite the struggles that came with it.

Seol and In Ho's chemistry in this drama was just totally different from the webtoon. In the webtoon, you could tell right away that Seol and In Ho were a big no no right off the bat. In the drama, however, Seol and In Ho grew together, learning from each other, and became very, very comfortable with each other. Seol was more of herself around In Ho. With Jung, I feel like Seol was tiptoeing around him, carefully watching her actions around him. Her feelings were genuine for him, yes, but there was definitely something missing. I got to see more of a carefree Seol with In Ho - she laughed and played in the rain with him, discussed their worry together. She was happy and comfortable with him. Like everytime they were together, I keep forgetting that "oh right, she has a boyfriend."

So you see, it was very hard to come to a full decision to totally go down with this sinking ship. A lot of Cheese in the Trap fans were furious about how this drama turned out because it totally made Jung a psycho and didn't really go into depth of his character. He was the most interesting character in this series, yet his growth fell flat compared to how much In Ho was developed and carefully crafted.

However, I overall, I didn't think it was the most traumatizing drama I have seen - I have seen worse, seriously. And yes, I can't say this drama was bad when I fully fell in love with In Ho and Seol's dynamic. Even though the ending left me feeling unsatisfied, I've got enough adorable InHo-Seol scenes to remember from time to time.

I thought this song was perfect for In Ho and his feelings for HS.
Anyways, Enjoy! hopefully you`ll like it. ;)
