MV Review- SNSD Lion Heart and You Think

All this while I had not reviewed music videos, a hell lot of music videos released. We had GOT7 and Infinite, then a whole series of girl bands. SHINee released their repackage album, and Super Junior made a comeback with Devil. We also had B1A4 making a comeback after almost a year and of course Big Bang left it's mark among all the MVs. And then Wonder Girls made a superb comeback- I Feel You being one of my favorite video and song.
Coming back to the latest, we have Girls' Generation releasing Party in the summer and now Lion Heart and You Think. First I will review Lion Heart.

I personally like Girls' Generation videos for their music videos, the fact that they are not like other girl bands. But slowly SNSD is becoming a little monotonous- especially their videos. Most of these videos focus more on the glamour part. Bright colours and clothes, advertising stuff in their videos and so on. Most of their videos look like I Got A Boy, all with bright clothing. The amount of pink and orange lack of sober colours distract you. The girls look pretty as usual, no doubt in that. Yuri's healthy figure and Hyoyeon and Sooyoung's short hair look too good on them. It suits the retro style that has been chosen for the theme.

Lion Heart, well, the song did not appeal me much. It was an okay song- not very addicting but not bad. Probably it will take a little time for it to grow on me.

The music video deals with a man who has the nature and heart of a lion- but then as the girls wait for him, he ends up flirting with all of them and in the end gets beaten up, instead of getting a girl.

Now about You Think. All the songs chosen to be made MVs with are of totally different genres. You Think turns out to be hip-hop-ish, again not very upbeat and not very addicting, but better than the others.

What actually looks good here and strikes you is the dance. The dance really stands out, and so is the set. They leave all the glamour in Lion Heart, for which I am just too glad. The choreography is very cool.

The song is a feminist break up song. It's after a break up and how the guy tries to act cool, but that is only his thinking. The girl doesn't want get affected by the attention the guy gets after the break up and the wrong image of her that he puts of her in front of the world. The song has a "Monica" call which has been taken from an yester year bollywood song. It suits the song well though.
I was surprised to see Sunny getting so many lines. Probably she had more lines the Yoona. She did justice to the song though. And then the rap, Sooyoung really needs to try hard, but Hyoyeon nailed the rap like literally.

I just hope next time all get a little bit equal amount of screen time.

Drama Review - Marriage not dating

These days, I have been averse to the idea of getting married, so I could totally connect with whatever the protagonist of this drama was feeling. You meet one wrong person in your life and your trust in humanity vanishes. Yes, that's what happened to Kong Ki-Tae (played by Yeon woo-Jin) in this drama. As if living with a broken family - a cheating father and a manipulative mother - wasn't enough, his longtime girlfriend kinda puts him off. When she tries to take over his life, he calls off the wedding and decides to live alone forever.

On the other hand, Joo Jang-Mi (played by Han Groo) doesn't give up no matter how many times her trust is wounded and heart is broken - she believes in true love like a fool. After getting played by Lee Hoon-Dong (played by Heo Jeong-Min), who dumps her when she asks for commitment, she gets acquainted to Kong Ki-Tae. They both partner together to avenge Jang-Mi's broken heart and to protect Ki-Tae's 'single' status.

As you guessed already, they end up falling in love with each other though that wasn't on their agenda when they started putting on a show in front of the world. Han Yeo-Reum (played by Jinwoon) and Kang Se-A (played by Han Sun-Hwa) do their best to break them apart, but do not succeed. Even Jang-Mi and Ki-Tae try to break themselves apart but the circumstances only brings them closer. They get closer and start developing feelings for each other thanks to Ki-Tae's mother Shin Bong-Hyang (played by Kim Hae-Sook) who puts them in weird situations to end their relationship. Yes, in this drama everyone is trying to stop Jang-Mi and Ki-Tae from getting together, and it's quite hilarious. It's humorous until the end, except a few scenes here and there.

The actors have delivered praiseworthy performances, especially Yeon Woo-Jin. I had watched him in the Arang and the Magistrate first, and to be honest, hadn't liked him at all. But, his acting in this drama wooed me....totally!

The background music was amazing as well. I liked Mamamoo's Love Lane the best, but the piano was better. It was so catchy that I keep listening to it...more often than I listen to Kpop (except Bigbang).

If you are looking for a drama that has a sensible storyline but still doesn't make you cry, then this drama is a must-watch for you. It's a total timepass.

Drama Review- I Order You

First of all I want to apologize to all our readers and the followers of this blog. Both of us have been really busy and therefore we haven't been able to update. So I decided to post a drama review that I just finished watching and start posting all over again.
So the drama I finished is I Order You. I just randomly came across some posters and thinking that the actress is Goo Hara, I decided to watch it. And I seriously wasn't ready for this surprise.

We have Jung Yunho as Yeo Gook Dae who runs a doshirak or tiffin store. He makes beautiful and delicious tiffins and also makes personal deliveries. One day Park Song Ah (Kim Ga Eun) ends up in his kitchen to take a tiffin for his brother. Song Ah immediately gets a crush on Gook Dae. And then Yeo Gook Dae ends up giving Park Song Ah a supplementary tiffin box, but it ends up to be a wrong one. And that is how their interaction starts. A series of events happen, which a re a bit silly, and she ends up working for Gook Dae.

A good thing about this drama is- it isn't very long. The episodes are only of half an hour and there are only 16 episodes. The most attracting factor in the drama is Yunho cooking. You can totally understand why the female lead fall for him. He looks damn hot. He simply over- shadowed the actress. One more part is the food in the drama. I have never seen such pretty and decorative tiffin boxes in my life. Not only they look pretty, they look damn delicious.

 Apart from all of this drama is a bit like any other drama, a bit unnecessary dragging and a bit unnecessary addition of characters, also some logic-less and forceful rivalry is shown here. But since it is short, we can just finish it up. There are some sad scenes where Yunho breaks down due to something. That scene hits your heart straight. Yunho;s crying is so realistic.

Personally, I would really recommend to watch the drama once. and only once just for Jung Yunho and the food.
