Drama review: Sensory Couple

Sensory Couple or The Girl Who Sees Smells is Yoochun's last drama before his enlistment in August this year. It's been a buzz in the fandom when there's rumor he'll be starring in a drama prior to his enlistment and it turned out to be true. I like Yoochun as an actor, not to forget he is and always a singer in the first place. Shin Sekyung is his lover in the drama, Oh Cho Rim, who was able to see smells and different smells have different shapes. All started when she had an accident in her shs year made her in a coma for 3 months and woke up with her left eye turned to be blue. Yoochun as Choi Moogak is a police officer who lost all his senses since his younger sister's death. His sister was a false victim of the Barcode Murder Case where Chorim is the survived victim of the case but she lost all her memories after waking up from her coma. They accidentally met when Yoochun was searching for a thief and Chorim helped him with her ability. Later on, they work together to solve another murder case which will lead to the Barcode murderer. The murderer was revealed in the mid of the story (I forgot in which episode). Because of this, many netizens were afraid they lost the hype of the drama since it had many episodes to go till the end. I admit that my interest towards this drama decreased a bit after they revealed the murderer because it's not easy to keep all the hype without being draggy. I was also pessimistic when they casted at first Suzy then changed to Shin Sekyung as the female lead. If you watch drama frequently, you probably knew how she acted. Her face is too plastic and expressionless. But she changed my perception here; she wasnt as bad as what I think and paired up well with Yoochun. As for Yoochun, I think his best drama is still Rooftop Prince; this one was just a so-so for me. Sensory Couple got to maintain a good story line till the mid of the drama, after that they spent a few episodes only focusing in the lovey dovey scenes between Choi Moogak and Oh Chorim. Definitely not my thing since the romance-thriller is the concept I expected. We know in the police department most of the officer are men, but I like his team leader, Inspector Yeom. She was able to lead all her subordinates besides being underestimated at first because she's a woman. She didnt show much expression here, but that's what makes her looks great. The expression is suitable for her character. Nam Goongmin is also the second lead acting as a chef. You need to see how he did in this drama. I actually recommend this one because it's Yoochun's last drama before his enlistment. Perhaps you may like it, but Im a bit disappointed because they cant keep the good pace which make me lost my interest. Everybody has different taste right? Enjoy!
Kim So Hyun also made a cameo in this drama in earlier episode as Yoochun's younger sister Choi Eun Seol who was falsely murdered. She has been acting with Yoochun for several times, who was said to be her ideal type.

It's been exactly a week since the concert. I still left my heart in Bangkok. I am a Yoochun stan for almost 8 years and now I start to like Yunho. I was allowed to watch this because accidentally my uncle and aunt planned to go to Bangkok that weekend and my parents too so I requested this. I didnt hope much for it; the chance was 50:50 but my parents granted my wish! To be honest, this concert was even better than the JYJ concert I watched last year. First, finally Im part of Red Ocean in real life!! This has been my dream since a long time ago. My dream was crashed in JYJ concert because there were so many individual stans resulting in a Rainbow Ocean. It's such a shame that they did that. Second, Homin is better in dancing (Im sorry) and they were so energetic that I kept screaming during the whole concert. My hands were sore the next day because I held and shook my lightstick for the whole concert like for 3++ hours. Third, my seatplan was in the third floor and many people said I just can see them in a very very small view but turned out it was far better than I expected. I think my seat at JYJ concert was worse despite paying a bit expensive than this one. The best part was I took pics and recorded so many fancams! The security in my area was not that strict made me possible to do it freely. I also met many new friends; Im happy that through TVXQ we can know each other. In the past, I supported all five and strongly denied the fact that they had separated. Now I realise maybe they are happier in this way; both sides can achieve what they cant in the past. Even I have to wait for more than 2 years, I will still wait for you guys. Thank you for making one of my dreams come true. Please keep continuing to be TVXQ. #alwayskeepthefaith

Medley: 믿어요/My Little Princess/You Only Love/Tonight/Paradise/She/You're My Melody
Red Ocean!! #proud

The fanproject during "Always With You": we held up the banner written  난 기다리는 거 잘해 which means "We are good at waiting". This project was made because Yunho will enlist very soon and we will wait for both of them to return.
Yunho cried in the end T_T he kept bowing to the fans in every side of the stage after seeing the project made by us

Drama review: 聽見幸福 (Someone Like You)


This is the latest taiwanese drama I watched starring Kingone Wang and Kirsten Ren. It's called "Ting Jian Xing Fu" which means listen to happiness and I actually dont understand what is the connection with the English title. The synopsis and casting were the reasons I decided to watch this drama. Kingone Wang was the second lead in 2005 hit drama Devil Beside You where Kirsten starred in 2013's drama In A Good Way. The story starts with Fang Zhan Cheng (Kingone Wang), a blind man who lost his fiancee in a car accident on their wedding day. His guilt for surviving the accident makes him decides not to get an operation so he could never forget his fiancee. He met Chen Yuxi (Kirsten Ren) accidentally in a spa, where he overheard her singing the same song like the one his fiancee always sing. She thought he was a pervert without realising he's blind and kept shouting at him. After a little misunderstanding she finally knows he's blind and pity him. His secretary then asked her to be his nurse, taking care of him. At first he rejected her because she hurted him in the past but slowly he opened his heart and befriends with her. This is just an ordinary love story but I love the chemistry between them. Kingone pulled off the character really well; not every actor can portray the role as a blind man so naturally. I dont think he can be considered as idol actor anymore because I can see his wrinkles clearly lol He acted as a blind man till half of the drama which made me bored occasionally and just skipped some episodes. As for Kirsten, she's just an average in my opinion. I didnt watch In A Good Way so I dont know how well she did in that drama. Crying scene is a big no for her; she looks really fake and cant cry naturally. I even find her voice sometimes is a bit annoying because it's so high pitch when she screams. Aside from all of those, I think she suits well with Kingone and even think he balances her character. There's even a gossip saying these two have been a couple but no one confirmed about that. The storyline itself is actually interesting though like typical taiwanese dramas it was draggy in a few episodes before the end. I cant say this drama is really good but it's refreshing.

Rate: 7/10
