Wonder Woman (2017)
PG-13 | 2h 21min

When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

Amazing movie/story, it left me wanting to be Wonder Woman :P. Can't deny the chemistry between Chris and Gal, and it made me sad to see him died in the story.  I wished they could have let the story ended that both the characters have spent couple of years together. But yeah, I know that Chris' being heroic have lead to Wonder Woman releasing/discovering her utmost power, so the story had to be ended that way.

The Beautician and the Beast (1997)
PG | 1h 45min

A New York City cosmetologist, mistakenly thought to be a science teacher, is offered a job to teach the children of an Eastern European dictator.

I stumbled upon this movie on HBO HD, and honestly, there weren't many other appealing movies on different channels. Although it's been two decades since its release, the comedy in this film feels a bit outdated, but surprisingly, it still manages to tickle my funny bone, especially because you don't come across such humor nowadays.

Doctor Stranger (2014)
Dakteo Yibangin (original title)
20 episodes

As a child, Park Hoon (Lee Jong-suk) and his father were kidnapped by North Korea. In North Korea, Park Hoon was trained to become a doctor by his father who was already a famous doctor.

Second KDRAMA of Lee Jong-Suk for me. Didn't thought that the series or the story will keep me interested. If only, I started watching this on the first day of my rest day then I could've finished this in just a day or two.

Though, I like him more on W: Two Worlds, because (1) he's more manly, he's better with a little more weight; (2) can't get enough of the chemistry between Lee Jong-Suk and Han Hyo Joo that I wished hard that they could continue off-cam :P. I didn't feel the chemistry between Lee Jong-Suk's character and Jin Se-Yeon on this series, I felt it though on scenes between Lee Jong-Suk and Kang So-Ra.

Overall, it's a good story and worth watching.

Oh! My Lady (2010)
16 episodes

Series Outline: Sung Min Woo is the top male star in Korea due to his good looks and singing talent. Ambitious, he moved into TV dramas which he helps with his star power and hinders with his terrible acting. He also has an exploitative, unethical manager. Yoon Gae Hwa is a housewife divorced from a rich husband who needs to earn enough money to keep her daughter in her custody while her ex-husband's new wife doesn't want the daughter of a previous wife around. Gae Hwa's sole prior work experience is 6 months as a reporter for a weekly scandal rag. Her first jobs shown in the series are unsuccessful but include 1 day as housekeeper for Sung Min Woo where a babysitting emergency forces her to leave early, infuriating Sung Min Woo. Shortly afterwards, she finds another job at a musical production company, learns a secret about Sung Min Woo, and convinces him to work on the agency's musical, and becomes Min Woo's handler for that agency as it prepares to put on a musical starring Min Woo..

After a whole month since my last KDRAMA series, I finally dived into this one on Wednesday night, and it hooked me so much that I couldn't stop watching until Thursday morning. Then, on Thursday evening, I continued my binge-watching spree until Friday morning.

I had asked Ame to download this series for me because I missed the chance to finish it when it aired on our local TV station. The downloaded copy has been sitting on my laptop for a month, waiting for the perfect moment.

While watching, I had a flashback to why I discovered Choi Siwon's "Who Am I" version. It was in this very drama where I first heard that soul-stirring song. I was so moved by it that I searched for it on YouTube and found that it was originally by Casting Crowns. Interestingly, Choi Siwon's rendition had a more profound impact on me than the original.

Finally, after all these years, I've completed the series, but I must admit that I was left a bit disappointed with the ending scene. I had higher expectations, hoping for something more. Nonetheless, the overall experience was worth it!

Aladdin (1992) on IMDb

Aladdin (1992)
G | 1h 30min

When a street urchin vies for the love of a beautiful princess, he uses a genie's magic power to make himself off as a prince in order to marry her.

Upon watching Lea Salonga and Brad Kane's singing "A Whole New World" again after 2 decades. It prompted me to watch Aladdin again :). Watching this movie brought back high-school memories, nostalgia.

Looking back then I was amazed with the animation. But comparing it now with today's animation, like Frozen, it shows how animation has improved over time.
