It’s Okay, That’s Love

    One of the dilemmas a Kdrama fan goes through is choosing the next drama to watch.  A lot of factors goes into that final choice.  Personally, current mood is my main basis of choosing what to watch next.So finally I decided to watch It’s Okay It’s Love.  It has been on my “to watch list” for sometime now.

    This drama is about a bestselling writer named Jang Jae-yeol played by the dashing Jo In Sung.  He is obsessive compulsive. Behind his cheery exterior is a dark past.  He meets Ji Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) who is a psychiatrist. She is career driven and suffers from anxiety when it comes to intimacy.

    The drama is about these two finding love while battling their inner demons.  A great ensemble cast who also suffers from different mental health issues.

    I felt that the drama tried to cover a lot of the disorders under DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). If there is one thing that the drama successfully conveyed to viewers is the reality that those who suffer from metal illness should not be shunned.  We should be able to put ourselves in their shoes. We are all the same.We all crave for love and understanding.  The issues the drama tackled is indeed quite serious but it was able to achieve balance with the fun banters among the characters.  It was a good play of light and heavy which I definitely like.

    The chemistry between Gong Hyo Jin and Jo In Sung was pretty amazing!!!!And their love story sends a message of hope for everyone. Lee Gwang Soo’s and Sung Dong-il’s character made the drama work.  Having these four under one roof was something I enjoyed watching. This is a definite must watch.

    This drama reminded me of a line from the movie Girl Interrupted.  The line goes, “Crazy isn’t broken, it’s you and me, amplified.”

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

ETERNITY

It's been ages since I blogged and I miss it. I am grateful for my husband for encouraging me to write something again. The past year has truly been hectic and blogging took a backseat. Fortunately, the K drama watching is stil my anti-stress. 🙂

So what I have been up to? Well I'm trying to adapt a healthy lifestyle. And yes loss some weight… Woohoo! But in great danger of gaining it back again but as they say, FIGHTING!!!Hehehe

I have been learning to prepare bento snacks for my child. She loves them which is my motivation to keep on doing it. The past year has been all about taking care of family. It's really challenging but the reward is worth it. 🙂

Here are some of those bento that I have prepared…

I have watched 32 dramas since my last post and the current one I'm watching is Delightful Girl Chun Hyang. I must say it's quite good. 🙂

That's it for now till my next post. 🙂
