Gringo

Review Movie Gringo Directed by Nash Edgerton 2018 In the Chicago offices of Promethium Pharmaceuticals, co-presidents Richard Rusk and Elaine Markinson receive a call from a company employee, Harold Soyinka, who claims he has been kidnapped in Mexico and that his abductors are demanding a ransom of five million US dollars.

One day earlier, Harold, Richard, and Elaine arrive in Mexico where they meet Sanchez, head of Promethium’s Mexico plant.

Unbeknownst to Harold, it is revealed that Sanchez has been selling Promethium’s latest product, medical marijuana in the shape of a pill, to a Mexican cartel.

Promethium has decided to cut them off to avoid harming their upcoming merger. Later that evening, as Richard, Elaine and Harold have dinner, Harold secretly records Richard’s and Elaine’s conversations while he is away from the table.

He learns from the recording the merger plans, which would result in Harold losing his job.

That night, he also discovers that his wife is having an affair and wants a divorce.

Sanchez informs cartel leader Villegas about them getting cut off by Promethium; Villegas maims Sanchez and, believing that Harold is Promethium’s boss, orders his capture.

Richard and Elaine leave Mexico the next morning without Harold when he seemingly disappears. Harold, hiding away at a motel, convinces the motel’s operators, brothers Ronaldo and Ernesto to pose as kidnappers in an extortion plan in which he calls Richard pretending to be kidnapped in exchange for a hefty ransom.

Richard calls his former-mercenary-turned-humanitarian brother Mitch to rescue Harold.

Harold spends the evening at a bar, believing his scheme to have failed. The bartender alerts the cartel when he recognizes Harold. Two men arrive and kidnap Harold, but, while delivering him to Villegas, Harold overpowers them and crashes the car.

The next morning, Harold is rescued by tourists Sunny and Miles, the latter of whom is working as a drug mule.

The two take Harold back to Ronaldo and Ernesto’s motel where all three had been staying, where Sunny befriends him. Soon, Ronaldo and Ernesto, who have been bribed by the cartel into helping them, attempt to kidnap Harold.

However, Mitch arrives, defeats the brothers, and takes Harold with him.

Mitch takes Harold to the airport to return him to Chicago, but he runs away. Mitch subdues Harold and injects him with a tracker to know where he is at all times.

The men get on good terms with one another and devise a scheme to extort Richard for more money.

When Mitch calls Richard to make that deal, Richard tells him that the company is planning to collect a large life insurance claim on Harold if he were to die, part of which Mitch would receive.

Mitch reluctantly agrees to kill Harold.

Harold and Mitch are spotted by Ronaldo and Ernesto on the streets. Mitch prepares to shoot Harold but cannot bring himself to do so as he has grown fond of him.

The two are then attacked by the brothers, who kidnap Harold and take him to Villegas. Villegas kills the brothers and orders Harold to access a vault at the Promethium plant in order to steal the marijuana pill formula.

There, a shootout occurs when the police arrive.

Review Admission romantic comedy drama film

Admission (film)

Admission is a 2013 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Paul Weitz and starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. The film was released in the United States and Canada on March 22, 2013.

It is an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz’s 2009 novel of the same name.

Strait-laced Princeton University Admissions Officer Portia Nathan (Tina Fey) is caught off guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by a former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Paul Rudd).

With vast experience in the coaching, consoling, and criticism involving
Princeton’s admission, she pays a visit to the Quest School, where John
teaches while raising an adopted son.

After exposing Portia to outspoken Quest students’ impressions of college,
he takes her to meet the rather unconventional Jeremiah Balakian, a child prodigy.

Back on campus, Portia’s longtime boyfriend Mark breaks up with her after
impregnating a “Virginia Woolf scholar” named Helen.

After an awkward romantic attraction to Pressman, she arranges for
Jeremiah to visit Princeton, where she and a colleague, Corinne, are rivals to succeed the soon-to-retire Dean of Admissions.

Portia long ago had a secret pregnancy, putting the baby up for adoption,
and is shown apparent proof by Pressman that Jeremiah is her son.

Although he is brilliant, Jeremiah’s miserable transcript results in his being deemed unfit to attend the University.

Portia, in an act that greatly endangers her position, schemes to gain
Jeremiah entrance into the school, knowing that Princeton cannot reveal such a scandal.

Her resignation is demanded. Later, when revealing to Jeremiah that she is his biological mother, she finds out that there was a photocopy mistake on his birth certificate and that the boy has already located his actual biological mother.

Portia appears at the Adoption Agency, trying to locate her son, where she describes her life with a different perspective. When asked how would she feel to meet her actual child, she replies that she would feel “nervous, but lucky.”

In the end, now dating Pressman, she receives a letter about her son, which says he is not ready to meet her yet. Pressman points out to her that she is on the waitlist “… and that’s not so bad.”

review The Good Cop Season 1 by Andy Breckman

review The Good Cop Season 1  by Andy Breckman

The Good Cop Season 1

The Good Cop is an American streaming television comedy-drama murder-mystery created by Andy Breckman. The ten episode series premiered on Netflix on September 21, 2018.

On November 13, 2018, Netflix canceled the series after one season.

The program is based on an Israeli show of the same name created by Erez and Tomer Aviram and produced by Yoav Gross

Netflix announced the new series in June 2017. The show stars Tony Danza as “a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules”,and Josh Groban as his son, Tony Jr., “an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules”.

The show was created and is written by Andy Breckman, who created and wrote the Emmy Award-winning USA Network series Monk.

The main characters are father and son policemen, Tony Caruso Sr. and Jr., who live together. Tony Sr. (Danza) was expelled from law enforcement for chronic violations of departmental policy, while his son, Tony Jr. (Groban) scrupulously obeys departmental procedures.

During one scene in episode 1, two of Tony Jr.’s colleagues reveal that others in the department refer to him sarcastically as the “Choirboy” and “Nancy Drew.”

In the series, according to Netflix, “This ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.”

Danza, a native New Yorker, is on the board of directors of the city’s Police Athletic League, and “will be able to draw on his real-life connection to the NYPD” to develop his character and role.

The first season is being filmed in various neighborhoods in Brooklyn.

About the series, Breckman said, “Many cop shows feature dark and provocative material: psycho-sexual killers, twisted, grim, flawed detectives.

Many address the most controversial issues of the day.

I watch a lot of them. God bless ’em all. But the show I want to produce is playful, family-friendly, and a celebration of old-fashioned puzzle-solving.”

Music for the series was composed by Pat Irwin

Review Movie Crazy Rich Asians 2018 American romantic comedy

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians is a 2018 American romantic comedy film directed by Jon M. Chu, from a screenplay by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim, based on the 2013 novel of the same title by Kevin Kwan.

The film stars Constance Wu, Henry Golding, Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina,
Ken Jeong, and Michelle Yeoh. It follows a Chinese-American professor who travels
to meet her boyfriend’s family and is surprised to discover they are among the richest in Singapore.

The film was announced in August 2013 after the rights to the book were purchased.

Many of the cast members signed on in the spring of 2017, and filming took place from April to June of that year in parts of Singapore, Malaysia and New York City.

It is the first film by a major Hollywood studio to feature a majority cast of Asian descent in a modern setting since The Joy Luck Club in 1993.

Despite praise for that, the film did receive some criticism for casting biracial actors over fully ethnically Chinese ones in certain roles.

Additional criticism was directed at the film for failing to include non-Chinese
Singaporean ethnic groups—notably Malay and Indian actors—as characters.

Nick Young and his girlfriend Rachel Chu, an economics professor at New York
University and New York native, travel to Singapore for the wedding of his best friend
Colin, who is marrying Araminta Lee.

In Singapore, Rachel visits her college friend Peik Lin and her family, who are shocked when she tells them she is dating Nick Young.

Peik Lin reveals that Nick’s family is extremely wealthy and famous, and are members of high society.

At a dinner party at the Young estateNick introduces Rachel to his mother Eleanor,
while his cousin Astrid discovers that her husband Michael, who comes from a more
humble background than the Youngs, has been having an affair.

Rachel senses that Eleanor dislikes her.

At Araminta’s bachelorette party, Rachel meets Amanda, who reveals she is Nick’s former girlfriend and hints Rachel may not be able to integrate into such a high-class family with her lower background.

Rachel finds her hotel room vandalized by the other girls, who deem her a gold-digger, but is comforted by Astrid.

Nick attends Colin’s bachelor party, where he reveals to Colin his plan to propose to Rachel.

Colin expresses his concern about the trouble it will cause them, especially
with Nick being expected to stay in Singapore and run his family’s corporation
and Rachel loving her job in New York, as well as the difference in their statuses.

Nick apologizes to Rachel for not telling her who he really was and takes her to make jiaozi dumplings with his family.

Here, Eleanor recounts the sacrifices she made to become a part of the Young family and makes jabs at Rachel for her American background.

Eleanor later privately recounts to Rachel how Nick’s father
had to cast his own green ring to propose to her as Nick’s grandmother
refused to give him the family ring, owing to Eleanor not being the first
or even second choice.

She tells Rachel that she will never be enough for Nick or his family.

Peik Lin convinces Rachel to stand up to Eleanor and earn her respect. On the day of the wedding, Astrid confronts Michael about his affair; Michael blames his unhappiness and the financial disparity between them on her.

During the wedding reception, Eleanor and Nick’s grandmother privately confront Rachel and Nick.

Using the findings of a private investigation, Eleanor reveals that Rachel’s father is alive, and Rachel was conceived through an extramarital affair, after which her mother, Kerry, left her husband and fled to the United States.

They demand that Nick stop seeing Rachel for fear of a scandal, as they cannot be linked to such a family.

Rachel is stunned, as Kerry told her that her father was dead. She flees and stays at Peik Lin’s home, depressed and unwilling to speak to Nick.

Kerry arrives in Singapore, explaining that her husband was abusive and that the comfort an old classmate provided turned into love and a surprise pregnancy.

She fled with baby Rachel in fear that her husband would kill them.

Kerry reveals that Nick was the one who had called her to Singapore and urges Rachel to talk to him.

When they meet, Nick apologizes and proposes to Rachel, saying that he is willing to leave his family behind to be with her.

REVIEW: DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY – SEASON 1

REVIEW: DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY – SEASON 1

DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY

DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY is a recent fast-paced sci-fi show from BBC America. The series is loosely based upon the 1987 novel of the same name by Douglas Adams. Adams, of course, being the author of the famous The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book series.

The show begins as Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood) finds himself seemingly at the centre of a tangled web of murder, dognapping and the activities of a strange cult.

This, of course, attracts the attention of the even stranger Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett). As it turns out, the eccentric holistic detective may be worse for Todd than being at the centre of a murder investigation.

It is difficult to describe the plot of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Put simply, it is a mess and purposefully so. The show draws upon a huge number of plots points, jumping genres and tone at a ferocious pace. Not a single character in the show, from the put-upon Todd to the mysterious cult member Gordon Rimmer (Aaron Douglas), knows what is going on.

This is where the show weaves in Dirk Gently and his so-called holistic detective methods. As a detective, Dirk doesn’t do anything as simple as looking for clues or following evidence.

Rather, he lets the “interconnectedness” of everything, or fate, drive his investigations. Unfortunately for Todd, fate seems to enjoy dropping Dirk right slap bang in the middle of trouble.

Now, no hero, even one as questionable as Dirk Gently, is complete without a dangerous counterpart. Dirk’s adversary comes in the form of Bart Curlish (Fiona Dourif),

who, like Dirk, believes that everything is connected. The only difference is that she is an assassin, a holistic assassin, and fate seems to want her to kill Dirk Gently. Dirk and Bart aren’t even the strangest of the vast bunch of characters that inhabit the world of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

The enigmatic Rowdy 3, of which there are four, routinely appear out of nowhere to terrorise Dirk and whoever else happens to be nearby.

Then there’s Farah Black (Jade Eshete), a highly trained yet untested bodyguard on the hunt for the missing daughter of the man in which whose murder Todd is a suspect.

All these characters, and more, come together in this bizarre and,
dare I say, interconnected tapestry of motivations, events and plot points that make up this show.

They are each interesting in their own right, but whether these storylines mesh well is up for debate.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, despite its constant genre hopping,
is billed as a sci-fi comedy.

The humour in this series is often dark and unexpected,
whether this comes from a dog being thrown off a bridge to a weaponised kitten.

And yet, sometimes the humour is obvious and silly and
more in line with the frenetic nature of the show.

This is an unexpected combination and it has its ups and downs.

Most of the laughs in the show come from the sheer confusion that the characters embody in serious moments as things get weirder and weirder.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is not an easy show to judge. Some viewers are bound to love it and others are bound to hate it.

But, it’s almost impossible to tell who without having them actually watch the show. The show can also come across as meddling with aspirations to something more interesting and flashes of genius. As the series has recently been renewed, it may become more focused in the second season.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Johnny English Strikes Again is a 2018 action comedy film directed by David Kerr.
A sequel to Johnny English Reborn (2011), it is the third instalment of the Johnny
English series. The film stars Rowan Atkinson in the title role, alongside Ben Miller,
Olga Kurylenko, Jake Lacy and Emma Thompson. The film follows the titular MI7
agent who is called into action, when all undercover operatives are exposed in a cyber attack.

A cyber attack exposes MI7’s field agents, forcing the agency to reinstate older
inactive agents, including Johnny English.

Now working as a geography teacher,he secretly trains his students in espionage.
English accidentally incapacitatesthe other retired agents, leaving him alone to accept
the mission. He insists on

the services of his old sidekick Jeremy Bough, still an MI7 clerk. Collecting their
equipment, including explosive jelly babies and a tracker disguised as a Sherbet
Fountain, English and Bough leave behind their mobile phones and drive an old
Aston Martin to the source of the attack in France.

They arrive at the Hotel Magnifique in Antibes, where the cyber attack originated.
Disguised as waiters, they steal a mobile phone with a photograph of their next target,
a yacht named the Dot Calm. While flambéing shrimp, English accidentally sets fire to
the restaurant. Sneaking onto the yacht, English and Bough are caught by Russian
operative Ophelia Bhuletova, but escape after finding a vast array of computer servers on board.

Pursuing Bhuletova’s electric BMW i3 through the countryside, English and Bough run
out of fuel. Bhuletova finds them and agrees to meet at the Hotel de Paris in Cagnes-sur-Mer.
While English meets Bhuletova at the hotel bar, Bough discovers evidence revealing her to be
a spy. Infatuated with Bhuletova, English rejects Bough’s suspicions. Bhuletova secretly
attempts to kill English, but fails to do so after he accidentally takes a pill which makes
him hyperactive.

Further cyber attacks force the Prime Minister to solidify an agreement with Silicon Valley billionaire Jason Volta, to be revealed during a forthcoming G12 meeting.

Having learned that Volta owns the Dot Calm, and suspecting
he is behind the cyber attack, English and Bough return home.
Seeking more evidence, MI7 arranges for them to infiltrate Volta’s
mansion. In preparation, English is tasked to complete a virtual
reality exploration of the billionaire’s mansion. However,
he unknowingly leaves the simulation room and assaults various
members of the public whilst in the virtual environment
(including battering the manager of a local cafe with two baguettes,
and commandeering an open-top bus by pushing the tour guide off the bus’s top deck).

Arriving at the mansion, English discovers Bhuletova is also a spy. He records evidence of Volta’s plans with Bhuletova’s iPhone, but he is exposed after accidentally hitting the wrong button and playing the song Rasputin by Boney M. English escapes and hijacks a driving instructor’s car, returning to MI7 after being chased by Volta. However,

English mixes up the phones and instead takes the driving student’s phone, therefore he fails to convince MI7 and the Prime Minister of Volta’s schemes. The Prime Minister, having heard about both the restaurant and virtual reality incidents, fires English and proceeds with the G12 meeting in Scotland.

Bough convinces English to stop Volta anyway, enlisting the assistance of Bough’s wife Lydia, the captain of Navy submarine HMS Vengeance, to arrive at Garroch Castle by Loch Nevis.

Bhuletova attempts to kill Volta, but he reveals he knows she is a spy, having immunized himself to her poison ring and removed her handgun’s firing pin. Scaling the castle using a powered bodysuit, English intervenes before Volta can kill Bhuletova, who escapes. Volta reveals his plan to extort the G12 leaders by threatening to shut down the internet. English calls MI7, but forgets Lydia’s warning about using a mobile phone near the submarine.

An MI7 secretary unintentionally places two telephones next to each other: one on a call from English, the other from Lydia, calling to confirm a launch code English inadvertently keyed in.

Mistakenly given the order to attack by English, Lydia launches a ballistic missile. The missile diverts to a Sherbet Fountain beacon left by English on the Dot Calm, destroying the yacht and Volta’s server.

English, wearing a traditional suit of armour, Bough and Bhuletova chase Volta to his helicopter as he prepares to reroute the attack to a different server in Nevada.

Bhuletova gives English a tablet computer to disable Volta’s Aerospatiale Gazelle helicopter. After Volta mocks his inability to use digital technology, English throws the tablet, knocking Volta out, and smashes his phone to stop the attack.

The Prime Minister praises English, who accidentally disrobes before the press and G12 leaders while trying to get the armor off.

English returns to his school and is excitedly welcomed by his students. However,
he realizes that the headmaster is about to eat one of the explosive Jelly babies, as the film ends.

Wine Country

Wine Country  Abby (Amy Poehler) decides to celebrate her friend Rebecca’s (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday with a weekend getaway over Rebecca’s protests that she wants a low-key celebration. Abby, Rebecca and four of their friends, whom they have known since they were young waitresses, decide to spend the weekend together in Napa.

Rather than allow the women to relax and drink Abby wants them
to adhere to a strict schedule, a way of seizing control as, unbeknownst
to the rest of her friends, she has recently lost her job. All the other friends
are struggling with problems of their own: Rebecca is in denial that her
husband is inattentive and her friends hate him, Naomi (Maya Rudolph)
is afraid of receiving test results from her doctor, successful business woman
Catherine (Ana Gasteyer) feels that the rest of the friends are cutting her out,
Val (Paula Pell) is looking for love and Jenny (Emily Spivey) a depressive writer,
is simply miserable in life.

On Friday the friends eat at an expensive restaurant where Val flirts with their waitress, Jade.

The following morning the women have a sinister tarot reading from a woman called Lady Sunshine. Afterwards they go day drinking around Napa. Near the end of their tour there is tension when Abby snaps at the other women for not adhering to their schedule. When Rebecca goes to talk to her about her attitude Abby reveals that she lost her job. In anger Abby throws out her schedule and the women decide to go to Jade’s art gallery opening.

They are shocked that Jade’s art is all related to The Nanny. During a Q&A
Abby rants on how younger generations have it too easy but ends her speech
by saying that they are Fran Fine (in reference to Fran Drescher’s character
on the show The Nanny) causing the art goers to believe she is a part of the exhibit.

Val stays behind to flirt with Jade but when she tries to ask her out Jade assumes she is trying to buy a painting and humiliated, Val agrees to buy it.

Returning home drunk and miserable Abby is propositioned by Devon the housekeeper (Jason Schwartzman) and has sex with him.

The next morning Naomi goes to wish Rebecca a happy birthday and finds
her on the floor having thrown out her back. Rebecca reveals that spending
the night on the floor led to the epiphany that she hates her life. She agrees
to adhere to Abby’s schedule and all the women, except Catherine who they
can’t find, go to brunch. Catherine eventually arrives and accuses the other
women of trying to cut her out. Naomi tells her she is locked in a self-fulfilling
prophecy as work means she has no time for her friends and not spending more
time with her friends makes her work harder. Naomi then reveals she also has
problems as she is waiting on the results of a BRCA1 and BRCA2 test and then
storms out of the restaurant. After Rebecca tells Abby that the birthday weekend
is more for her than for Rebecca, Abby storms out as well.

Naomi and Abby are pursued by the rest of the women in a golf cart. Naomi is bitten on the ankle by a snake and as they can’t get cell phone reception Val decides to run down the side of the steep hill they are on to get help. One by one the other women follow Val down the side of the hill. Catherine is the last one to go and gives an emotional speech at the top of the hill about why she is planning to turn down a lucrative job opportunity to spend more time with her friends, a speech that they don’t hear.

Arriving at the hospital, they learn that Naomi is fine. Catherine also calls the doctor for her and learns Naomi’s blood tests came back negative.

That night, the women sit around drinking and invite the lonely local owner of the house they are staying in, Tammy (Tina Fey), to join them.

Review series Legal High K- drama Developed by JTBC

Review series Legal High K- drama Developed by  JTBC

Legal High

Review Legal High First things first, Legal High for those who don’t know, is an adaptation of
the original Japanese drama.

It follows our two main leads, Go Tae Rim (Jin Goo) and Seo Jae In (played by Seo Eun Soo)
as they navigate the legal world and try to work with each other. I don’t want to bore you so
much by going deep into its premise so to make it simple, Go Tae Rim is an experienced lawyer
who’s known for his greed for money, with a winning rate of a 100%, he turns even the most
defeating case into a successful one. Comes in our female lead, who from a series of events,
decided to become a lawyer to fight for herself. And ofcourse, she’d be learning from Go Tae Rim.

Sounds almost too simple, and had I not given this a chance, I would’ve just put this to the side without
even looking at it. But thankfully, after a search for something light and completely different feel from
the scare Hand: The Guest provided, this one just ticked the box.

This drama had such a perfect blend of everything – humour, comedy, quirky characters,
enjoyable episodic cases and a slight dash of romance and angst. It delivered great cases
every episodes but one of the things that sets this apart from other legal dramas was that
it never took itself too seriously. The casts themselves were light and fun, giving more life
to otherwise grave and what would have been dull cases. But don’t get too fooled
by its lightheartedness, this drama knows when to take things seriously.
And the impact couldn’t be understated.

You should know that I watched this drama over a course of about two months.
Yes, not because it was draggy or boring. Or I’d rather have it playing in the background
whilst browsing my phone. No, I was trying to savour each and every moment of each episodes
because they were just that entertaining, heartwarming, comedic and brings relief by delivering
what each previous scenes promised. Each episode delivered something new and different,
making you expect nothing less than what’s shown in the previous episodes.

Which I think is also thanks to it being an adaptation. From the drama’s tone and vibes,
this drama felt different that even if I hadn’t seen the original, this vibe really gives me an idea
they paid homage to the original just from the overall tone. It was relaxing and for the first time in so long,
I was watching because I was really engrossed in it.

Rather than pushing through in the hopes that the next episode would make me want to
keep pressing the next episode button, Legal High did this effortlessly and for a drama
I tried and came across because I was trying to divert my attention from previous drama
I watched, Legal High managed to find a place in my drama favourites. That no matter how much
I loved The Guest, this is the drama in sooooo long (including My Mister!!) that I saw because
I was enjoying every bit of it.

 

I really think the writing was genius in terms of characterisation, most especially Jin Goo’s character, Go Tae Rim. He was amusing and I looked forward to his rants that included almost every country and all things I wouldn’t have thought about relating to situation/cases they are handling. He’s so unique and Jin Goo really brought this character to life with his amazing and impressive acting. And this is one of those roles I didn’t think I would want to see him in. (Mind you I’ve never actually seen him act before but was familiar with him because of Descendants of the Sun). I really thought this was such an unusual choice of drama for him at first but amazingly, it’s like this character was made for him.

So was it a perfect drama? Personally, it was almost perfect. It hit everything right, apart from the conclusion. Where everything felt smooth and flowed consistently, the last few minutes were a bit less than amazing, as compared to what the rest of the show has been. The flow, the logic mostly, of how they came to the conclusion and what conclusion they came to, wasn’t my favourite part. Personally, I felt like it was out of sync to how the rest of the drama had been.

Apart from that small gripe I had, this drama was truly an amazing find. Special shout-out to the lovely Lee Soon Jae – our lovely butler. He was sooo adorable and made this drama even more worthwhile. If there was an underrated drama you’re looking to watch, this one shouldn’t be far down your list.
