Hapimari: Happy Marriage!? Episode 1 Recap

hm13

As promised, here’s the first recap for ‘Hapimari: Happy Marriage!?’ live-action adaptation. The first episode lays down the basic premise: a man and a woman, who are on the opposite ends of the socio-economic ladder, meets in the most unconventional way. Destiny and circumstances force them to get married and eventually fall in love for real.

Though some details were changed, I believe the drama delivered quite well for its pilot episode. Considering that the plot and characters are already “TOO” familiar for most audiences, the challenge now, is how to keep the dynamics afresh.

BIG, BIG Announcement for My Amazing Boyfriend Recap

My Amazing Boyfriend

Hi there! It’s me zsa86. Of course, it’s me, I’m the administrator and sole writer here. Tehehe!

I have a sad news for everyone. Oh well, if you’re not a My Amazing Boyfriend Recap follower of this blog, then skip this one out because it’s not for you. Tehehe! You see, the main reason why I do recaps is that if ever I want to be reminded of how a particular drama/movie went, I can readily read about it. It doesn’t really have to be my recap, it can be anybody else’s as long as it’s on the Net and is available. Anyways, I will be dropping MAB for that reason. Yeah, I know I did say I will be recapping this drama to the end, but you see, other blogs which also featured this series are already done with their recaps, so, I don’t see the point of continuing.

The good news is, I will be recapping other dramas. I’m thinking Hapi Mari!? (if subs will be released), Sukina Hito ga Iru Koto (once vids are out), Far Away Love (if it’s awesome), I wanna be a Sup’star (since I don’t find any recap of this drama on the Net). This is pretty ambitious for someone as busy as me. But since, writing is my stress reliever, I’m going to give it a try. 🙂

My Amazing Boyfriend Episode 18 Recap

Professor Li is evil! I hate him. -_-

This episode is quite emotional. I love Jing Zhi’s lines, specifically the part where she was delivering her farewell speech. Tehehe! I was extremely touched. I don’t know why. 😀

Yosh! The long wait is over! I really hope that this live-action doesn’t disappoint. I seriously love the manga and I seriously adore Dean. I also hope someone takes time in subbing this one. I’ll be writing recaps once the subs are out. Yay!

Orange Movie Recap

O-02

More than romance and friendship, I love that this movie brought light to two of society’s darkest issues- depression and suicide. It has a strong message addressed to both young and old, and that is “live a life without regrets”. Bottom-line is: let’s do the things we need to do while we can or it’ll be too late and the chance will pass us by.

There’s an intermixture of past and future events, so if you’re a hardcore realist and not a fan of time-travel and parallel universes then this is not the movie for you. But believe me, if you can look past all the fantasy, you’ll find “Orange” one awesome movie.

PS: I’m extra generous with the screencaps. It’s YamaKen we’re talking about after all. Tehehe!

My Amazing Boyfriend Episode 16 Recap

16-17

There’s a notable development in the romance area, especially in Ling Qiao’s end. Who would have guessed that the only way for him to appreciate Jing Zhi is for her to give up her feelings voluntarily and declare that she doesn’t need him anymore. Hail to reverse psychology!
