Blurb:

Eun Dae Gu, Uh Soo Sun, Park Tae Il and Ji Gook – otherwise known as the P4 – are the new recruits in the violent crime unit at Gangnam Police Station. These rookies are neither enthusiastic nor passionate about their new jobs and have joined the crime squad for varying but unbefitting reasons. They are lead by an erratic and hot-headed Seo Pan Suk who wants nothing more than to wash his hand off of the incompetent new recruits.


You’re All Surrounded is definitely one of the best K-Drama I’ve ever seen!! It was so freaking awesome! This drama kept me engaged thoroughly from the start to the finish. I randomly discovered it YouTube one day and watching this one was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. #SorryLife #NopeNotEvenSorry

Eun Dae-Koo (Lee Seung-Gi), Eo Soo-Sun (Go Ara), Park Tae-II (Ahn Jae-Hyeon) and Ji Kook (Park Jung-Min) are four rookie detectives who start working under Pan Seok (Cha Seung-Won) who is the leader of team 3. They have all joined this profession for some reason or the other but Eun Dae-Koo is the one who seems to be the one harbouring secrets and he’s the only one who recognises Pan Seok even though it’s been 11 years since they first met, Eun Dae-Koo still holds a grudge against him but as they start working together, he realises things may not have been the way he actually thought in the first place.

The plot was definitely refreshing and interesting! Eun Dae-Koo’s mother was murdered when he was still in school and he holds Detective Pan Seok responsible for that and after so many years he’s back but working under the same detective he has a grudge against. The backstory was moulded perfectly into the present. One of the things, I loved the most was that this drama was hilarious at times! The only let down of this entire drama was the big reveal, well even the characters thought so… but don’t let that be the only thing from watching this show because it’s definitely worth it! Also, I enjoyed how Eo Soo-Sun’s mother incident tied up with the main plot, it was seriously interesting! I can’t reveal much without spoiling, so just go and watch this show!

The characters. Oh, my god, the characters were freaking EPIC!! Eun Dae-Koo is the perfect epitome of angry young man but in fact, he’s a squishy teddy bear. Eo Soo-Sun was just adorable and I soooo loved the romance between the two. The romance was not heavily focused but it was still there and I looooved it! Park Tae-II and Ji Kook (is actually a teddy bear) were the perfect additions to the team and definitely provided the comic relief. But the one character who was the most interesting was Seo Pan-Seok, the lead detective. He was already involved with Eun Dae-Koo’s mother’s murder case and as the show proceeded we get to see more of him, I definitely enjoyed how everything was handled. He was phenomenal actually!! And that ending, I can’t stop laughing whenever I think that!! ūüėā

This scene was the best and the most HILARIOUS moment of the entire drama!! ūüėāūüėā

Although the main plot structure was maintained, the rookies had to solve other cases and each and every one of those were pretty awesome, especially the ones with which the show starts. It was hilarious actually! I had to pause before I was laughing too goddamn much.I loved the fact that they grew as a team as the show proceeded and it was one of the best things ever. They became one as a family. I really hated all the politics that played a vital role in the show, there were quite a few shocking moments but I definitely loved how the ending wrapped up.

Overall, You’re All Surrounded is an addictive show! The acting was really great and Cha Seung Won definitely did a brilliant job. His character will keep you guessing throughout most of the drama and I loved that mystery factor. I am soooo glad I decided to watch this drama.

You still need to ask!!

K-Drama Review: Kill Me, Heal Me || Intriguing with a pinch of irritating


Show Name: Kill Me, Heal Me
Episodes: 20
Genre: Romance, Comedy, Mental-Illness, [Adult]
Director:  Kim Jin-Man
Cast: Ji Sung, Hwang Jung-Eum, Park Seo-Joon, Kim Yoo-Ri, Oh Min-Suk, Choi Won-Young
My Rating: 

Blurb:

After a traumatic experience in his childhood, Cha Do Hyeon, a third-generation billionaire, suffers memory lapses and his personality then scattered into seven different identities. Wanting to regain control over his life he asks Oh Ri Jin, a first-year psychiatric resident, to try to helps him secretly, but she eventually falls in love with one of his personalities. Meanwhile, Ri Jin’s twin brother, Oh Ri On, is a famous mystery novelist who investigates about Do Hyeon and his family.


Okay so, this drama is super popular and super love by most people but unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought it did. I guess the case of it’s me, not you happened with me for this drama.

Cha Do Hyeon (Ji Sung) has been suffering from split personality disorder since he was a child after a certain accident but he has no previous memories of it. When his life accidentally intertwines with a psychiatric resident Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung-Eum), she decides to try and help him but slowly she starts falling for one of his personalities. But when everything threatens their future, they are both forced to relive their painful past in order to make peace with their true selves.

So first of all, the good things! The plot was a masterpiece. The way multiple personality¬†disorder was handled was indeed praise-worthy, it was comical at times but it was never offensive and it kept surprising me at every turn. Cha Do Hyeon’s personality breaks down into 7 pieces after a certain incident during his childhood. All the personalities were so freaking different from each other,¬†Ji Sung’s acting was simply phenomenal. The way he switched from one role to the other definitely managed to surprise me.

Out of all the personalities,¬†Shin Se-gi was the most dominant one and damn I loved him! He was also¬†the one most attached Oh Ri Jin. The romance was a bit insta-lovey which didn’t bother me much but I didn’t totally enjoy it either. One of the things that was the most annoying was¬†Oh Ri Jin’s screaming. My goodness, there was definitely no need for so much screaming though!!

Anyway, among the rest of the personalities, Ahn Yo-na too was the one who was the most hilarious but I can’t forget Perry Park, he was equally funny but dangerous as well because of his love for making bombs! I seriously couldn’t stop laughing at those moments!

Although the plot was executed well, I felt this drama stretched too much, especially because of the repetitive¬†flashbacks which after some time started to become too irritating. But I did enjoy how their pasts intertwined. Anyway, the way this show wrapped up won my heart. I was almost on the verge of tears when we had to say goodbye to the personalities but I was absolutely pleased how this show ended. Oh, oh how can I forget, I looooved Oh Ri On (Park Seo Joon) as the female lead’s brother, they were such cute siblings and I loved how they took care of each other until the end.

Overall¬†Kill Me, Heal Me was an intriguing drama. The plot was complicated but executed well enough and all the issues were handled well. The acting was reaaaally awesome and although I didn’t enjoy it totally, I’m still glad I watched this one.

Recommend it?

Yes.


So guys, have you watched this show yet? Did you enjoy it?

K-Drama Review- Goblin: The Lonely and Great God || Such a fantastic watch!

Show Name: Goblin
Episodes: 16
Genre: Fantasy, Romance
Director: Lee Eung-Bok
Cast: Gong Yoo, Kim Go-Eun, Lee Dong-Wook, Yoo In-Na, Yook Sung-Jae

Blurb:

Kim Shin is a Goblin who is cursed with immortality and uses his powers to help others. He lives together with a Grim Reaper who has amnesia and can’t remember his past. To end his immortality, Shin must search for a human bride who can pull out the sword in his chest and return him to ashes. He meets Ji Eun Tak, a high school student who, despite her painful reality, remains optimistic and ends up falling in love with the Goblin. She works with Sunny, the owner of a small chicken restaurant, who is a bright and attractive girl, loved by all men. However, when she meets the Grim Reaper, she finds her while beginning to change.


This was definitely one of the best K-Dramas eveeeeeer!! ‚̧ It was such a whirlwind ride. One moment it had me laughing hysterically and in the very next moment I was ugly crying. Dayum. And it was so unpredictable due to which I enjoyed it even more.

Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is a goblin who is stuck forever as an immortal due to a curse that only his bride can break who will be able to see the sword through his chest. He currently lives with the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-Wook) who can’t remember anything about his past and the reason why he became a reaper in the first place. But everything changes when Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go-Eun) enters Kim Shin’s life claiming to be his bride. And the Reaper finds himself falling for Sunny (Yoo In-Na), Eun Tak’s boss. But when the past begins to intertwine with the present and the truth is laid bare, chaos fills their life and it’s up to them to decide which path to take.

First of all, I absolutely loved the plot! The beginning of the show was a little bit slow but it picked up its pace soon enough. But I was definitely hooked from the start.¬†Kim Shin has been waiting an eternity for his bride to appear so that he can finally end his curse but when¬†Eun Tak appears in his life, he finds himself slowly falling for her and his will to die fades away. I saw a few people complaining about the age difference between the two main leads but I didn’t have an ounce of problem with that. In fact, I adored the chemistry between them.

Also, one of the best part of this drama was the bromance between Kim Shin and the Grim Reaper!! From the very first, they kind of have a love/hate relationship but slowly it kind of turns into an alliance and then a beautiful friendship. Their continuous bantering and jumping on the same train the next second was so funny!

It was hilarious at times. Mostly, all their interactions were hilarious. Especially their slow-mo model walks! I couldn’t stop giggling during those times! XD

Anyway, the history between them is complicated. I can’t discuss it much without spoiling the entire thing, it was it was definitely well executed. I love this thing about K-dramas, how they manage to intertwine the past with the present and end up with an epic plot! Anyway, I was just relieved to see even after everything their friendship was not affected in the end.

The Grim Reaper was just freeeeeaking adorable! I just wanted to squish his cheeks! And when he was in the presence of Sunny (she is so damn gorgeous!), he became more awkward and it was just so cuteeee! Damn cute. I loved this couple even more than the main leads!

Buuuuuuut their fate was pretty tragic.

After everything in the past gets revealed things become hella complicated, especially with the villain popping out of nowhere. The episodes were structured pretty well and it was easy for the audience to put the puzzle into pieces once all the clues became clear. I was pretty heartbroken when things took a different turn but then this drama again managed to surprise me!

Goblin and Eun Tak’s fate was pretty tragic too, especially how hers was fated from the very beginning of her childhood. The ending was definitely bittersweet. I full on cried for the last 3 episodes! It was just so heartbreaking but the ending left me satisfied, although I definitely wanted a little more but there were happy tears in the end.

I loved this trio so muuuuuch!

Also, I enjoyed the character of Yoo Duk-Hwa (Yook Sung-Jae). I thought he was mainly there for comic relief but he ended up playing one of the most important role! I also didn’t know before watching this drama that he is one of the members of BTOB and dayuuuuum, he is real life and the character he played in this are such a stark contrast. Anyway, I loved him!

Overall, Goblin was a fantastic watch. The acting was superb, the special effects were absolutely perfect and both the plot and the characters managed to keep me interested throughout the drama. This drama will always have a special place in my heart!

Recommend it?

Yes!


So guys, have you watched this show yet? If yes, what are your favourite things about it? Also, recommend me a few more K-dramas if you have them in your bucket?!

Mini Movie Reviews || A bit of both rant and raving!

Name: Wonder Woman
Genre: Fantasy, Action, Romance, [Young-Adult]
Director: Patty Jenkins
Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright
Release Date: 2 June 2017 (USA)
My Rating:

THIS!! ‚̧ I loved this movie so freaking much and though I was a little bit that it wouldn’t live up to my expectations because the hype surrounding this movie but I’m so glad it did. Princess Diana has never been outside the Amazons where she had trained her whole life. When she learns about the war ravaging mankind, she understands it must be Ares, the God of war who had come back to take his place back in the world by destroying God’s creations, aka men.

I was hooked from the very start. The story unfolds in a beautiful yet strong way. When an opportunity presents itself, Diana takes it upon herself to save mankind. I loved Gal Gafot so freaking much. I would have been imagined a better Wonder Woman than her. She was simply perfect for this role. This movie is not only enjoyable but also empowering. I watched it with my little brother and we both had so much fun.

The war was portrayed realistically and the Dr. Maru or the poison woman was really, really vicious. I hated her from the very start and I guess Diana pardoned herself due to the better cause but I hope she gets the ultimate punishment. I loved Steve!! I mean, I have always adored Chris Pine but the ending!! Why, oh why!! Nonetheless, I loved the action sequences, they were pretty kickass and I enjoyed every moment of it.


Name: Before I Fall
Genre: Paranormal, Romance, [Young-Adult]
Director: Ry Russo-Young
Cast: Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Cynthy Wu
Release Date: 3 March 2017 (USA)
My Rating:

I went into the movie fully knowing what was about to come but it still managed to break my heart. Although this movie did not manage to capture me like the book (obviously -.-) but it definitely had its moments. I wish we had more of Sam and Kent, he was portrayed by perfectly but we only got very little of him. Nonetheless, Sam was this pretty and mean queen bee as portrayed in the books. All her other friends were cast perfectly too. I hated how everyone treated Juliet, I hated the fact that Sam didn’t stand up for her in front of everyone. It would have been nice if the movie provided some sort of closure with how everything ended. This movie stayed pretty true to the book and although the middle felt a bit slow but it was because of the fact that how everything repeats itself and the way how the book is narrated. Overall it was an enjoyable watch.


Name: Beauty and the Beast
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, [Young-Adult]
Director: Bill Condon
Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans
Release Date: 17 March 2017 (USA)
My Rating:

Unpopular opinion alert! I usually enjoy musicals. I mean it’s in my genes since I grew up with all the Bollywood movies but I didn’t quite enjoy this as much as I had hoped. Don’t get me wrong, Emma was just perfection just as I wished Belle would have been but all the continuous extravagant singing and dancing were giving me a headache. But I did enjoy this movie, I loved the beast and the enjoyed the fighting sequences. I especially loved the tea cup lady and the ending was joyous and truly beautiful.


Name: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Genre: Fantasy, Action, Horror, Romance, [Young-Adult]
Director: Burr Steers
Cast: Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston
Release Date: 5 February 2016 (USA)
My Rating:

I seriously loved reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen during my 2nd year of college. I hadn’t read this book but I was pretty excited for this movie and honestly, it pretty much lived up to my expectations. I loved the action and the sassiness along with the humour which kept me engaged throughout the book. Although I didn’t enjoy Lily James as Cinderella but I adored her as Elizabeth. She upholds her character and stood true to the original character. The zombies were definitely a horrific part of the film, and I hated how a particular character played a part in that but it was a no brainer. Darcy, I would have expected a bit more from him but in the end, I was satisfied. There were definitely oh-my-god moments and the last scene after the credits nearly killed me and finally when the scene cut off and ringa ringa roses emerged in the background, it gave me chills to my bones.


Name: Letters to Juliet
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, [Adult]
Director: Gary Winick
Cast: Amanda Seyfried, Gael García Bernal, Vanessa Redgrave
Release Date: 14 May 2010 (USA)
My Rating:

This was such a sweet and romantic movie. I loooved it so much. Sophie had always wanted to be a writer and when she visits Verona, Italy with her fiance, she gets to meet the “Secretaries of Juliet”, a group of women who write back replies to the letters of love, trouble and heartbreak on the wall, she can’t help but feel intrigued. And when she finds one by her own which hadn’t been replied over for years, she takes it upon herself to write the lady back regarding her dilemma about love. And now, with her encouraging words, that lady is back to conquer her lost love she left behind all those years ago.

Honestly, this movie was such a great ride. It was filled with fun and adventure and the promise of love. Claire ran away from love when she was young but after getting Sophie’s letter, she returns to find the man she once loved accompanied by her grandson Charlie who tries to persuade her to go back in every step. This was a story not only about love but also about discovering oneself and knowing what the heart really wanted. I loved how the story unfolded, it was funny and humorous at times. Even the angry young man of a grandson aka Charlie felt the change in himself with Juliet along for the ride. I loved the chemistry between them and I liked how maturely Sophie handled things with her fiance. The ending was super sweet and it melted my heart.


Name: The Boss Baby
Genre: Animation, Comedy
Director: Tom McGrath
Cast/Voice: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel
Release Date: 31 March 2017 (USA)
My Rating:

This was a super fun watch! I watched this with my brother as well and both enjoyed it very much. When the babies are ready to be delivered from Baby Cory, most of them get chosen into a family while some get their duties assigned to management. The boss baby is one of that few who comes to Tim’s house as his new baby brother with the intention of fulfilling his mission of collecting information about Puppy Co who is stealing all the attention from the babies which is leading to the loss of their company.

The relationship between the baby boss and Tim started on bitter terms since Tim was the only child and he got all the attention but everything started changing since boss baby arrived. But when they came clear of his mission, Tim agrees to help him so that he would return back to his company soon enough and everything would be like before again. And so the adventure began. It was seriously funny but the fact that I loved the most was, despite everything they began to develop a bond as a family. I seriously loved the duo and it was heartbreaking when the boss baby had to go back. Tim took the ultimate step and I felt so proud of him. The ending was seriously the sweetest, I enjoyed this movie so much!


Name: Angry Birds
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Directors: Clay Kaytis, Fergal Reilly
Cast/Voice: Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride
Release Date: 20 May 2016 (USA)
My Rating:

I actually saw this movie last year but since I was doing this post, I decided to add this to the list since it was a pretty fun watch. Red is always angry and he prefers to stay isolated. When the pigs come into their homeland, all the other birds invite them with joy but Red is the only one who suspects them. His suspicion turns true when all their eggs are stolen by the pigs.

This was an enjoyable movie. I never played the Angry Birds game much but my brother was a huge fan and we also watched this together when he came for a visit. Despite not playing the game, I loved these wonderful and colourful birds so much! ūüėÄ Each of them were unique and had a personality of their own. Red had to suffer because of his attitude but it was exactly was saved the day. When all the eggs of the birds get stolen, Red takes it upon himself to rescue them. He leads the mission and it was so fun to watch. All the specific powers that the birds in the games, they had the same in the movies too which made it worth watching the movie. The birds fought bravely against the evil pigs and Red used his wit against them to defeat them. This movie also dealt with a great deal of friendship and I was glad Red managed to make true friends in the midst of everything.


So guys, what are your thoughts on this movie? Have you watched all of these from my list? Any particular favourites?

How can a mermaid from the Joseon era survive in modern-day Seoul? Shim Chung is a mermaid who finds herself transplanted to modern times. She is caught by Heo Joon Jae, a charming but cold con artist who is the doppelgänger for Kim Moon, the son of a noble man from the Joseon Dynasty. But in the present time, Joon Jae works with Jo Nam Doo, a skilled conman who guides Joon Jae to become a genius scammer. But Joon Jae’s friend, Cha Shi Ah, who works as a researcher at KAIST, may be Chung’s only hope for surviving in her strange new world.

I was pretty excited to watch this show. The Legend of the Blue Sea incorporates mermaid folklore which got me interested to watch it in the first place and another was the fact that played a key role in the show was that a mermaid can love only once and if it’s not reciprocated while she stays in land, her heart will slowly turn cold and she will die. This was enough for me to start watching this show asap and¬†I’m glad it didn’t disappoint.

One of things that I loved about this show was how the episodes were structured. Though I was a little confused at first, but everything became clear quick enough. This show deals with 2 lives, the past life and the modern day. In the past life, Dam Ryung (Lee Min-Ho) is the newly appointed governor of a village where he meets Seo Hwa (Jun Ji Hyun), a mermaid for the first time who came ashore accidentally after a storm. He saves her from a terrible fate from the officials of the village but fate had something else planned for them. Fast forward to the modern day, Joon-Jae (Lee Min-Ho) is a successful and smooth-talking con man and he works with  Nam-Doo and Tae-O. On a holiday retreat, fates bring Joon-Jae and Shim Chung (Jun Ji Hyun) face to face once again, only they have no memories of each other of their past lives expect recurring dreams.

The past lives of the characters were beautifully incorporated with their modern lives creating a beautiful contrast yet a kind of similarity between both. Both the story of the past and the modern day life are narrated simultaneously with each other which kept my interest throughout the whole series. When Joon-Jae and Shim Chung first meet, it’s absolutely hilarious along with the incidents that follow. Her fighting skills was a treat to watch. XD

Also, when Shim Chung first came to land, she had no idea how to behave like a human and she messed up quite a bit. And it was pretty great to watch how¬†Joon-Jae taught her the ropes. Although there was history between them, the romance in the modern day life between them evolved slowly and steadily and I loved them together so much!! The only thing I didn’t like about Chung was how she made Joon-Jae forget about her every time she went away, her morals were different, despite that she acted against it. It was definitely selfish on her part.

Anyway, as the show proceeded, it is revealed what exactly happened in the past and how the fates of every character were intertwined. There were some aspects, though I predicted correctly, still came as a shock.¬†Also, the sub-plot which involved¬†Joon-Jae’s family was quite interesting as well. His step-mother was such an evil woman and how she succeeded in breaking down their family. She definitely got what she deserved in the end.

Overall,  The Legend of the Blue Sea was an entertaining show. I loved how things were executed and how the past and the present life were neatly tied up in the end.

Recommend it?

Yes.

Blurb:

Jeon Jin Ho is a straight guy who is mistaken as gay when he applies to become Park Gae In’s roommate. His hobbies include organization and ironing, and he’s known for his stoic poker face. He’s a stickler for cleanliness, but he also has a talent for figuring out a women’s feelings. Kae In is very trusting even though she has a habit of being betrayed. However that doesn’t stop her from giving people the benefit of doubt and Jin Ho is no different. How will Kae In react when she finds out that her gay roommate is not actually gay at all and that he has fallen for her?

This was such an epic show!! I think I enjoyed Personal Taste more than The Legend of the Blue Sea. But both of them were pretty different from one another and it’s just my perspective.

Park Gae In (Son Ye Jin) has only one flaw. She is too trusting and cares too much and in return she is hurt every time. When in debt, she decides to rent her spare room and that’s when¬†Jeon Jin Ho (Lee Min Ho) comes in but he gets mistaken as gay due to some previous incidents and at first he decides to play the part because of his own selfish motif but soon he finds himself telling more lies to avoid one problem or the other and falling for his roommate as well.

First of all, this show was extremely funny and humorous with a healthy dose of romance in it. I seriously felt so bad for Park Gae In. She trusted everyone in her life so blatantly and in turn got back-stabbed or hurt every single time. She is someone who is extremely unorganised and usually went with the flow, the exact opposite to Jeon Jin Ho. But when she finds a friend in Jeon Jin Ho, she requests him to teach him how to be a woman as he is expert in the etiquette. Reluctant at first, he then agrees. The irony was the rules that he taught Park Gae in in order to function like a woman, the flaws he asked her to rectify, it was exactly those flaws he fell for. Damn. Adorable. The relationship between them was simply so sweet and everything!!

At first, I was angry about the fact that¬†Jeon Jin Ho came to rent¬†Park Gae in’s house because of his own selfish motif. But as he became her friend and learned more and more about her, he could help but fall for her. Park Gae In knew she was falling for a gay person who couldn’t reciprocate her feelings but love was simply love to her. She was so simple and naive and it was something worth envy to everyone else which she couldn’t realise.

I simply loathed Han Chang Ryul and¬†Kim In Hee. I seriously didn’t understand their purpose at all. I mostly skipped the parts Kim In Hee was screaming because that was kind of irritating. At first, they both ditched¬†Park Gae In in the worst way possible and then went after them because they couldn’t have what they wanted. What. Even. Sometimes things got repetitive which was kinda boring but mostly it was pretty enjoyable. I was soooo glad when finally¬†Park Gae In stood up for herself in the end.¬†When the truth about everything spilled out, things got messy, but¬†Park Gae In again surprised me once again by her act of forgiveness.

Overall, Personal Taste was a fun and great watch. I loved the characters and the drama. And I would love to see these two main leads again together! They were a treat to watch!

Recommend it?

Yes!


So guys, have you watched any of the two show yet? If yes, what are your favourite things about it? Also, could you guys recommend me a few more K-dramas?

TV Show Review: Full House (Thai)

Show Name: Full House (Thai)

Cast:¬†D’Angelo Mike,¬†Manaying Sushar,¬†Panichkul Uttsada,¬†Janesuda Jane,¬†Nisachon Siothaisong,¬†Wittawat Arisara
My Rating: 

Blurb:

Aom is a writer who got swindled out of her house during her trip to Korea. She finds out that her house was sold to Mike and in an attempt to get her possessions back, she enters a contract marriage with Mike for one year. Though she lost everything, Aom remains optimistic and takes things in strike. What started out as a business relationship between the two becomes personal as they start to care for each other.


Plot:

The plot was definitely predictable but it was pretty enjoyable as well. When Aom-am gets duped by her own sister, she is forced to make a deal with the new house owner, Mike who is a superstar. I sooo love this trope! And it was perfectly executed in this show. Mike and Aom-am begins to develop feelings for one another how much they try to stay away from each other, they genuinely being to enjoy each other’s company after some time but things begin to take a different turn with Mintra in the picture. Although there wasn’t a full-fledged love triangle but it was almost like that which made it impossible for me to stop after one episode. This show was pretty addicting. There were so many laugh-at-loud moments as well as heartbreaking ones. There were a few things I wanted it to go differently but the ending made everything absolutely okay.

Characters:

Mike (D’Angelo Mike)¬† I loved his character. He’s a famous star but he begins to care for Aom-am when they start pretending to be playing house for a whole year. But he’s quite impulsive and not-so-good at decision making because there were seriously some moments when I just wanted to hit him with a saucepan (I don’t know why I always want to hit people with a sauce pan…lmao). When he was with Aom-am he was a totally different¬†guy. Most of the guys think it’s mighty difficult to understand a girl, but just small things are the ones which make a difference, just like there were some moments that absolutely melted my heart and those were completely¬†swoon-worthy. Nonetheless, whenever he was with¬†Mintra,¬†he couldn’t absolutely deny her anything. I get it, he was in love with her since his childhood but after he married Aom-am, even though it was kind of fake, he should have at least told her. He sure did but he should have a lot earlier because dude you were getting me confused.

Aom-am (Manaying Sushar) She was just adorable, I loved her bubbly and cheerful personality. She was caring and forgiving despite the fact what her sister did to her for money which was pretty savage. Nonetheless, I enjoyed her sense of humour and she was very dedicated and hardworking towards her book, she never gave up on it despite being rejected for a number of times. When she actually confessed her feelings for Mike, that scene was really heartbreaking and I kinda pretty much broke down. And she was just amazing when she went for Mike knowing that he would never actually say it himself.

Guy (Panichkul Uttsada) Guy was a great guy! Oh well… xD He was genuinely caring and was always there whenever his friends needed him. Without his push and help Aom-am would never have completed her novel and he was the one who called out Mintra on whatever game she was playing with Mike. I really felt bad for him in the end, he’s a guy who deserved a¬†happy ending but he handled everything so maturely. He was a true gentleman.

Mintra (Janesuda Jane)–¬†Oh God! I hated her so much!! She always had feelings for Guy but when he tells her that he sees her only as a sister, she makes up her mind to go for Mike despite knowing that he’s married. She tried full on to break Mike and Aom-am apart and this was the only time I really felt angry with Mike because he didn’t stop Mintra wither when it was clear how much Aom-am was getting hurt. Though she redeemed herself at the very end, I wouldn’t have been so forgiving as Aom-am.

The Romance:

I really, really loved the romance in this show. It’s not heavily reliable on it but the few moments were pretty enough to showcase the evolving relationship between Mike and Aom-am, they had the perfect chemistry. Although they went on their (fake) honeymoon trip, the few itsy-bitsy bits were more than enough for me and sooo damn cute. And that ice-cream eating shoot for the advertisement was hot as hell!

Overall:

Full House was a really fun watch. I binged watched it in two days! The plot was enjoyable and I loved the character growth. The chemistry between Mike and Aom-am was absolutely amazing. I am pretty satisfied with this show, it was just amazing.
