Coffee Prince (Not so) Quick Review

636017991590129630-1204417915_kdrama2 This review might contain slight spoilers, you and your sensitive ass have been warned.

Coffee Prince is a Kdrama about a tomboy girl who acts like a guy to get a job and a guy who falls for her while still thinking she’s a guy.

So, let’s say this won’t exactly be what I call a quick review. As per usual, Kdramas tend to be insanely long. Sometimes it makes them great and other times, it makes them hard to watch. You really need to commit to the story for 15, 17, 20 or even 30 hours of content. Yes, a full episode is normally a little over an hour. They are long and usually the progression of the plot is slow or there is a lot going on at the same time with more than 1 big story.

31DFWC1 Entry 31 ; Ending

<- Previously

Jacob and Kath made their way through a rain of blossom. Slowly, they walked to the top of the hill. Arrived there, they sat on the grass and started messing around.

Kath suddenly stopped and frowned. Jacob stopped as well. He stared at her, the green in his eyes paler than usual.

-“What?” He finally asked. Kath suddenly looked bashful. It was something she hadn’t done for a while.

-“Say it.” She simply said, looking down at her feet. Jacob gazed at her, puzzled. “Say that you like me.” At her words, Jacob grinned.

-“That’d be a lie.” He said. “I don’t lie.” Kathelyn pouted.

-“Meany.” She said, brooding. Jacob came to her and embraced her gently.

I’ve Gotten Emotionally Involved; I’m Screwed

I want to say, I’m pretty much writing this as a reflection to kinda heal myself. I think writing this might make me feel better and empty my head from all those thought.

So, I’ve made the mistake of starting Goblin 2 days ago. I’ve screwed myself. Goblin is a KDrama about, you know, a goblin. Though… I didn’t think this would give me that… I thought I would hate it. I’m stupid. I should never think anything. From now on, I won’t do that anymore.

So, now, basically, this show is giving me the same emotional trip that Love Rain did some months ago. The problem with this is that, when I’m done, I’ll go full hungover mode. This is the bad part of a good part, I think.

But, you see… The thing is that in these moments of complete emptiness, where I feel so empty inside and out, I’m a shit at writing. I have those unbearable writing blocks. I have one right now. I don’t know what to do with Entry 11.

I think I might just go around and clean the whole apartment over. That might do the trick. The other tricks I had won’t work right now because of my arms… So no Diablo III and no overly modded Minecraft to save my soul. Yay~

Goblin is too freaking good, and I hate it because I love it so much that my brain can’t work. Shit! If you need to just forget your reality for a while, it’s always good. The mistake I made is starting it while in the middle of the writing challenge. You know, when I need my brain for other stuff…

I’ll survive. Let’s go clean every crevices of the cave I live in! (Btw, I’m fine. I’m not sad or anything, just angry at myself. Letting the frustration out is good for my blocks. I’m sure Entry 11 will be released before midnight.)

The Marvelous Cheese Piece

So, I’ve made a new blog. It’s basically, an even quicker quick review blog for cheesy Asian cheesepiece4dramas. Basically, it identifies cheesy content and I also try to rate other stuff. As long as there is a little bit of cheesiness, or just romance in general, it’ll have a place there. There’s no scheduled updates so you can check it out often and use the search engine to find specific titles. I’ll try to keep it updated as much as I can.

cheesepiece4https://themarvelouscheese.wordpress.com/

So far, there’s only 10 titles in there but I might add much more tomorrow.

Okay, I’m done. Awayyyy~

Update? Emotionally hungover!

Won’t lie. Things have been rather slow over here. Still, wanted to say “Hey, I’m kinda still alive!” Blogging is being a little hard on me as of late. Actually, I’ve had something to my shoulder and now it’s kinda on both. On top of that, I have something to my wrists as well and it hurts into my fingers when I write.

But, heh, you can’t stop me from writing! Hah! So I write, still.

Um, CoMa is on hold, maybe even a dropped project… Things happened. Life is full of those unplanned things.

Now, I wanted to talk about something that is… uh… I want to say dear to my heart but somehow I think this would be wrong. If you’ve read the title (no doubt you did) well this is it. This is something that’s happening more and more to me it would seem. Actually, emotional hangover can happen after long nights of drinking. But you can binge on a show, who said you can’t suffer from it’s effect? Emotional hangover, to me, is that state you’re in once you’ve just finished something that took a long time to finish and that you invested your mind and your emotions in it so bad that once it’s over, you life seems almost meaningless.

Think of your favorite show, of your favorite book or collection of books. Think of that amazing manga or webtoon, of that one great thing that you’re so emotionally invested in that you dreamed about it on multiple occasion.  Now that one thing is complete. It’s done. It won’t be updated anymore. You know there won’t be any follow up, no other entry, no updates.

I doubt everyone has such a strong reaction to that kind of thing but I do. Suddenly, around me everything is empty and meaningless. Nothing can compare. Nothing is good anymore. I end up stuck in this endless spiral of emotions that I struggle with.

Now, it’s got to the point that I know it’s going to happen. I know I’m going to be emotionally hungover and I freaking end up being hungover before I’m even finished with the thing I will be hungover over.

This is not only from show or other things. It can come from my own things. Like something that I’m writing and once I’m done, the world crumbles down on me. AND I LOVE IT. This might sound rather strange. Somehow, this is the best cursed feeling ever and I embrace it.

And it hit me so hard of late. I’ve been writing something that I called Noire. You might see some stuff about it later if I don’t get lazy and if my limbs leave me be. Turns out that I wrote this story for 3 whole days. I was sitting still so much that I actually hurt my butt! My boyfriend was worried about me and he even fed me. It was like a sickness. I was like a prisoner of that whole setting. I had to lay it down, even though I hurt, even though I don’t live anymore, even though I don’t eat enough. Nothing mattered more. Suddenly, everything was about this story and I lived solely to write it down. And when I was done, the emptiness settled down. Boy, what a journey that was. And I actually live for that. I hunger for those crazy moments where there’s nothing but me and my story. It could as well kill me, I’d die happy. (Is that wrong to say?)

But being hungover comes along with it. It creeps on me, waiting. And then, it leaps and presses it’s fangs around my neck. And I’m like “Not today!”. Actually being hungover like that turns out to be a good moment for me to collect myself and wash my emotions before I go on a new journey with new characters and a fresh story. The thing is that it can become really hard to detach yourself from the characters you love so much. But it’s needed when you want to improve it. You need to let it be, even if it hurts you. and then when you go back, you can fall in love with it all over again.

Now, enough about the rambles of a crazy shut in. It’s just, right now I’m so in it that I struggle to sleep. This is what I live for right now. So, have I been good? Yes, yes I have been. In a strange way and I wish to make it my job. Now more than anything.

Oh, by the way. I love my sweet sweet Netflix. And now that stuff came out… At first, I thought this gem would be really bad. It’s called Love Rain. Go check it out, I’m dying for this right now. (Might make a quick review on it.)

Well, that’s it. I’ll see you again…

Oh, I want to know, do you ever feel emotionally hungover (not from alcohol!)? How do you deal with it? And how bad is it?

Quick Update

Yo! Yes, you are not hallucinating, I am still alive. The thing is, right now, it is quite hard to write. I got diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome… on both hands. I don’t know much about it so far, only that I need to wear restraint at night. I can’t do much right now so instead I watch loads of jdramas. Yep, gathering infos for some juicy quick reviews !!

That said, I think I’ll rethink the way I work on those reviews. I might write many when I have the time and publish only once a week. I think it would make things easier for me.

As for the things you will probably hear about, well, here’s a list :

  • Ao Haru Ride (movie)
  • Heroine Disqualified (movie)
  • Good Morning Call (jdrama)
  • Strobe Edge (movie)
  • L<3DK (movie)
  • Asuko March! (jdrama)
  • Sakamoto Desu Ga? (anime)
  • Nirjiiro Days (anime)
  • Noble, My love (kdrama)

Aside from that, I still have some western movies too like The Good Dinosaur, the Poltergeist remake and other stuff.

For many of those movies, I decided to read the manga before writing anything.

Also… I caught second lead syndrome. It’s horrible. I love it despite getting my hearth broken every time I watch something. Oh well! ^-^ I’ll survive!

I’ll see you on the next review.  ^-^ /
