The Barberettes on Sketchbook

The Barberetter appear on Yu Huiyeol's Sketchbook for their first time on TV. The ladies look wonderful and sound fantastic. Give these ladies some love by watching them perform.

Pinocchio Episode 1-4: I've Got No Strings

I debated on if I should give Pinocchio a chance. I really enjoyed Lee Jong Suk in I Hear Your Voice which made me want to try Doctor Strange a chance. I wasn’t too impressed with the comments coming out of the drama and stayed away from it. Also, Park Shin Hye is happens to be the lead in this drama. Heirs was a horrible mess from start to finish. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed Shin Hye in most of everything she has done. The problem with her as an actress is her lack of execution in any skinship relationship. Which I will talk about Shin Hye a little later. However, Pinocchio is by the same writer-director team of I Hear Your Voice. I can’t tell you all how much I really enjoyed that drama, plot holes and all. I loved it so much, I watched it again twice this year. 

Much like Voice, Pinocchio brings a fantasy element in the form of the case of hiccups when you lie. Only a few people in the world are known to have the “Pinocchio Syndrome”.  I’m a huge fan of the writer for being able to amplify the theme of the drama with these uses of fantasy (i.e. Hearing voices). The theme is all about lies and truth of the media. With 24 hours news channels, it is easy to to relate to how the media twists the news.

2014 Good and Bad Level: Prime Minister & I

This drama is all about a marriage contract between Nam Da Jung (Yoona) and Kwon Yul (Lee Beom Soo) all due to a misunderstanding. I’m a sucker for characters being forced to live with one another. Making characters live together doesn’t allow the characters to run away from their feelings too long. It doesn’t take long before Da Jung and Yul are trying to understand their feelings for one another.
