Chinese Drama: The Kings Avatar

I was randomly browsing on what to watch on Netflix when I stumbled on The King's Avatar. I was not really interested in watching a Chinese TV series but what initially caught my attention to check on the drama was because of Yang Yang... The Love 020 blues. But after reading the tv series description the game buff in me got so interested to watch it.
When I started watching the first episodes my son was not interested to watch with me, coz he thought it's going to be the same with Love 020. (He doesn't like romantic dramas.) However, as the episode progressed on he got hooked and interested.
According to him, "this drama gives so many lessons in life, your passion, and gaming." I agree with him. Even though there are potential romantic interactions but it's interesting to see that until the end no one falls in love. The director did not insert a love interest in the drama. Instead, love interest for the game called Glory and E-sport. The drama shows the rise of the E-sport industry and its challenges. The storyline focus on passion, sportsmanship, skills, teamwork, and friendship.
It was a good ending and has potential for another season.
My son got so inspired after watching the drama and has been asking me to play rank games and wanted us to join MCL Weekly in Mobile Legends.

My Fave Outfits of Park Minyoung in Her Private Life Korean Drama


Park Min-young and Kim Jae-wook

I just finish watching the Korean drama, Her Private Life in Netflix starring Park Min-young and Kim Jae-wook. And I couldn't help but notice Park Minyoung's fashion in the drama. It's really chich and eye-catching. And I love how simple the style yet she look so elegantly stylish. I took some screenshots of my favorite look among all she wore in this drama to share here in my blog. 

The first three pics are in my wishlist. I'll share a post if I can shop this clothes. ^_^

I really love the stylish cut of the skirt of this plaids suit!

Love this all nude outfit is gorgeous. I'm not sure if this one will look good on me but I shall try. I dont own any nude button-down shirt  but I did have a nude skirt before but it has prints on it. I use to pair it with dark top.
 I want this knitted dress with a modest side slit.  

New idea on how to style the button-down shirt.

I love side slits and that's why I love this outfits with modest slits that she wore. And the combination of cloth texture is amazing. Truly get some great ideas for a stylish corporate look.

I actually like this particular scene because it flaunts Park Minyoung feature. When she bun her hair it was perfect with the outfit.
I do notice that she mostly wear knitted tops in this drama. And this white long sleeve knitted top actually has an open slit at the back of the elbow which make it unique. (But I honestly don't like the open slit. XD)


With this look I just love how the men long sleeve and men slacks still look chic on her. 

 If you've seen the drama, you may noticed  I didn't post the pant suit outfit besides the last two images. They're actually nice but I'm no a fan of pants, I'm a skirt and dress type.  

What outfit do you like of Park Minyoung in Her Private Life Kdrama? 

If you haven't watch this drama, which of the outfit above do you like?

Scream Queens

Anyone ready for the next big hit series on TV? This coming September 22 get ready for Queen Bee Emma Roberts, Glee diva Lea Michele, pop star Ariana Grande, original scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, the hottie Nick Jonas, and a lot more stars in a new horror-comedy series. Scream Queens are from the same creator of Glee and American Horror Story.

Watch Scream Queens official trailer...

Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen B*tch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts). But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school's silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder... Or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

Scream Queens all-star cast includes... 

  • Emma Roberts (Aquamarine, Nancy Drew, Wild Child, The Art of Getting By, We're The Millers, American Horror Story: Coven), 
  • Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, True Lies, Prom Night,Terror Train, Freaky Friday)

Korean Drama: Bel Ami (Pretty Man)

Bel Ami -Pretty Boy

Just finished watching Bel Ami. When this drama was announce I was excited because Jang Geunsuk and yes lame but I guess I havent really IU's drama's. I really though it's going to be exciting but then again ratings of this drama are dropping low. Just a few days ago, I told a friend, Im planing to watch Bel Ami she said she is having second thoughts of watching this drama because a lot of people said its not interesting.

Nonetheless, I still go on and watch the drama. Thank God I did! The drama is not bad after all. I actually find the drama interesting. I usually skip scenes when I find it boring but on this drama I didnt get to skip much because I feel every scenes must not be missed. The story is a must watch on this drama.

Why low ratings?

I do figure out the reason why the drama gain low viewers rating, this is because of the cast. Jang Geunsuk and IU has no chemistry. IU may have played her character well but I really dont see any romantic chemistry with her and Jang Geunsuk even with Lee Jangwoo. I dont even smile and shiver when lead characters has some romantic interactions and lines nor get hurt when characters are broken hearted. I just dont see the connection of each characters. I have seen a lot of drama's of Jang Geunsuk and even if I dont like the female lead cast I was able to watch to the end because the romantic interaction is there.


Main Cast

Jang Geun-suk as Dokgo Ma Te

Korean Drama: 49 Days

Funny how at first I just disregard watching the Korean drama, 49 Days. Well maybe because after reading its synopsis I felt like its a fictional story and doesn't appeals me much. However, after seeing an advertisement on local TV that it will have a Filipino version, I gave it a try an downloaded it online. It turns out that it was a great Korean drama with a lot of life learning lessons on death and taking chances on life. The story is different from the usual Korean novela that I watched. I usually watched something humorous Korean drama because they would never fail to make me laugh out loud and feel good inside but 49 Days is far different since its a heavy drama. Yes, it has a lot of crying scenes but much more to that in this drama you learn to understand about pain, fate and love. After or even while watching 49 Days you will even stop and think of;

How good you live your life.
How many people is touch by your presence.
How much love you have give to the people around you.
The sincerity of tears people will shed for you.

In this drama you will also reflect two sides of living life. Either making the most of your everyday existence or chase death for an easy way out to skip the pain and loneliness. Pain will always be there if we dont learn to accept and let go. It may be hard but its the only way to put everything in place and let fate runs it course.

Live well. When times are hard, just like now recall those days that you treasure most. Gather your courage and live.

49 Days lead cast are Lee Yo Won, Nam Gyu Ri, Jo Hyeon Jae, Bae Su-bin, Jung Il Woo and Seo Ji Hye. I suggest you download the original Korean drama with English subtitles so that you will really understand the full run. Sometimes Filipino versions has some cut scenes. And for info 49 Days is titled Pure Love in the Philippines.
