Are you a fan of Twice or a fan of k-pop? Let me know in a comment!
This time I saw k-pop group Twice special for their Dance The Night Away comeback special on V Live.
If you know me or follow me on other social media platforms you all know that I am a Once (Twice fan). So I had to see this, well I have to see most of their V Lives however I won't write about every single one. In this special the members talk about the album. They also play games and answer other types of questions. They also performed the comeback song.

'Best Chicken' yes! as the name says this drama is about chicken! Fried chicken.
Also, yes it did get me hungry at points for some chicken. Lead are Kim So-Hye (IOI), Park Sun-Ho (The Current Produce 101 X) and Joo Woo-Jae, also Lee Seung-Hyub (N.Flying).
So-Hye lives in an old bath house that is owned by her grandfather. He puts it on sale because no customers come in which So-Hye lives upstairs of and is in charge of the bath house. She is working on becoming a webtoon.
Her grandfather sells the place to Sun-Ho character which he quite his business job to follow his dream of opening a Fried Chicken spot. He turns the bath house into a restaurant. So-Hye tries to get rid of him but ends up working for him while still trying to get the business to go out. However her plans turn out to help the place.
They end up meeting a homeless guy Woo-Jae character who ends up helping them improve the recipe. He used to go to school to become a chef. But do to his hand shaking, (can't hold steady the tools) he gave it up.
Overall the drama was ok, it wasn't one of the best one. I don't regret watching it either. After all I did get the chicken song out of it. Haha.
By the way I saw this drama on Viki and I believe it is also an original. For those of you curious on where I saw it.
Any of you seen this drama? If so let me know your thoughts on it!
'W' k-drama about a webtoon coming to life. Not sure about ya'll but I see a lot of webtoons mention in drama. Are webtoons big in Korea? If you know please let me know in a comment below.
'W' is one of the top dramas on my list. The story just gets you hooked and it was great for binge watching! The cast is also great. The 2 leads are good actors. Eventually I will have to do research on their names to add on to my reviews. I should be doing that already but give me a break. I am still new writing and at the moment I want to focus and get on the routine of posting more frequently. Back to topic.
This drama is about the female leads father being a webtoon creator in which she gets sucked into the webtoon. She gets into the webtoon for several hours to days maybe even months depending on the story of the comic how it goes. But in real life only a few mins have passed. Not even an hour in some cases.
The main character in the webtoon realizes/finds out what he is. Later on he is the one that gets out of the webtoon into real life. Of course what story is good without a villain which in this case is the villain of the webtoon.
This drama like most have its funny moments as well as its romance. The lead female of the drama became an actress bias. She is so beautiful.
Have ya'll watched 'W'? If you have please let me know your thoughts on it. If you are a k-drama fan please let me know. Looking to make friends with this interest.
Getting back into watching anime more often. 'High School DxD' been a while since I last saw it. Really enjoyed the first season. No I did not only enjoy it because it is uncensored but the story is actually good!
This anime is not only about nudity which I feel like all most people talk about is that. The story, the action, the funny moments is all good. The characters are also good. It does have harem as well. The last fighting scene was awesome. I am looking forward to watching the second season. For those of you wondering, I am watching the series on Hulu. They have the uncensored dub version. I normally like subbed but I started watching this one with someone else and they wanted to watch it dub. They stopped watching it but once I start something a certain way I continue it that way. I'm used to the English voices.
Any fans of High School DxD? Let me know your thoughts.
'Coffee, Do Me a Favor' a Korean drama. This drama I believe is a Viki Original. (For those of you wondering Viki is a streaming service for asian dramas, mainly Korean. I'll write about it another time.)
This drama starts Yong Jun-hyung (ex Highlight member), Kim Min-yeong, and Chae Seo-jin. It's a story about a overweight woman who works for a webtoon creator. She is one of his artist (animation? not sure of the proper positions). She is in love with her boss, however because she is overweight she has a harder time with life because she lacks confidence.
She comes across a cafe where the Barista offers her a coffee that can grant her a wish. She is transformed into this beautiful tall skinny woman, model material. However, when the caffeine leaves her system she turns back to herself. Enjoying how her life is different just by her look changing she decided to go back everyday for more coffee. Of course this ends up causing her problems living a "double" life.
She ends up getting the attention of her boss with her new looks. However it does not go as planned in the long run. There wouldn't be a drama is everything went smooth.
Overall the drama was good. Cast was good. I really Enjoyed it.

'A Love So Beautiful' a Chinese drama starting Hu Yitian and Shen Yue as the leads.
I found this drama on Netflix right after watching Meteor Garden which Shen Yue is the lead in as well. This drama was good, it kept my interest to binge watch a few episodes each time I sat down to watch. The story is romance with a few laughs here and there. Girl likes boy but boy doesn't pay attention. On top of that they are neighbors. Of course as time goes by he starts liking her as well. The whole cast is good, the actors that played the leads friend are great as well. Supporting cast is very important as well.
It's been a while since I saw this drama, maybe a few months. But I definitely recommend it especially if you like Meteor Garden.

Sabrina, the Netflix original not to be confused with the 90’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Like probably most from the 90’s saw Sabrina the Teenage Witch a family friendly comedy. However, this Sabrina is the dark twist of it. Not sure if it follows the comics because I have never read them. (I will soon get some to start reading)
Sabrina is raised as dark witch and is the age to become a full witch and attend their school. However she has to leave all her mortal friend behind. Which she does not want to do which appears a conflict for the show. The dark lord really wants Sabrina, which makes things a bit more complicated for her.
Overall the show is awesome, the cast I think is real good. However, making Salem not come out as much or talk is not so good. We all love Salem and want more of him! I read and heard that the actress who plays Sabrina turned out to be allergic to cats which sucks. But hey with technology now days doesn’t hurt adding a cat more often into a scene. Just make them shoot separately. It’s been done before even in lower budget shows.
I also saw the Christmas Special episode which I believe is part of part 1. I still haven’t got to the new episodes. I been watching other shows. Once I am done with season of those I will return to watch the current episodes of Sabrina.
Would I recommend this show? Yes I would if you are into the dark stuff and like Sabrina. However I know some people that love the teenage witch and would love to check this out but do not like dark stuff. To those I might not recommend it. If I do it will have a warning attach to it.
What did ya’ll think about Sabrina’s first part?
I finally gave Frasier a chance a few months ago. In the past this show did not really interest me. Few months ago I wanted to find a new sitcom to watch, while flipping through Netflix I decided to give it a try. Turned out I love this show. It is very funny. I guess it was just not interesting to me because I was younger.
During binge watching this series, I heard the sad news that the actor that played Martin Crane which is John Mahoney passed away. This was very sad, I loved him in this series. He played a father with 2 successful sons that he really didn't have much in common with. He got along more with his dog Eddie.
The show has many laughs, also some emotional moments. Overall the series was a good one, I am glad I finally decided to give it a chance. I was not disappointed at all. Also found out that there might be a reboot in the works. That would be interesting if the original cast returns Maybe for a one season special.
What do you all think of Frasier? What do you think about the reboot? Let me know!
“With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story”
Director: Terry Dougas, Nikki Frakes, William Lawrence Hess
Cast: Stan Lee, Various Celebrities
“With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story” is a documentary about Stan Lee and his journey in the comic book world. They go back to start on how Stan Lee got into doing comic books all the way to live action movies.
This documentary is great to get the history of Stan Lee and Marvel empire that it is today. Throughout the film you get colleagues, friends, and actors. You get the inside of how every character has a bit of Stan Lee in them. Not only do you get to hear from friends but you also get to hear Mrs. Lee. Very insightful
I would definitely recommend this to someone. I give it 7.5 out of 10.
The Warrior’s Way
Director: Sngmoo Lee
Cast: Dong-gun Jang, Kate Bosworth, Geoffrey Rush, Danny Huston…
The Warrior’s Way is about a warrior who is killing off the enemy’s clan leaving no one alive. However, he comes to the last person of the clan which turns out to be a baby girl. He takes her with him, the 2 end up in a western town. Peaceful he is for a while until trouble arrives to the town.
This is a ninja and cowboy movie, the story is decent in my opinion. There is a lot of CG. To me it was a bit artistic but a little to much CG that wasn’t so great. It has a bit of a cartoon feel to it. Some of the action sequences were pretty cool; I love how the warrior uses his weapon.
Kate Bosworth and Geoffrey Rush are part of the cast which I was surprised to see in a movie like this. Geoffrey Rush didn’t even seem like it was him until they focused on him. Both Bosworth and Rush character were good in my opinion.
Overall it was an entertaining movie, I saw it on Netflix. It is there until 4/26/15. It’s a good film to watch and get entertain, however it is nothing to go out of your way. I give it 5 out of 10. Didn’t hate or love it. One of those movies you just didn’t mind watching.
