Drama Reviews - Because This Is My First Life (2017)

Because This Is My First Life is a romantic comedy about a writer, Yoon Jiho (Jung Somin) who gets into a contract marriage with Nam Sehee (Lee Minki), as she needs a roof over her head and he needs the rent money for his house loan. Jiho has 2 best friends - Woo Sooji (Esom) who works in a big company and prefers one night stands over a relationship, and Yang Horang (Kim Gaeun) who just dreams to marry her long term boyfriend.

So many people raved over it, so it was one of the few 2017 dramas I decided to watch. Not because I don't want to watch more, but because I simply have no time!

Drama Reviews - Age Of Youth 2 (2017)

The one and only drama I completed during this hols is this precious little gem of a drama! I finished AOY S1 about a month before S2 came out so I was hyped for S2, and luckily wasn't disappointed. Of the 5 housemates last season, our beloved Kang unnie left the house to be a business woman, so we had a new addition in the character Jo Eun. Song Jiwon also took center stage in this story as hers was the last demon left to be uncovered.

December 2017 - Shanghai + Osaka (Part 1)

It's vacation time again after 4 months of school. After our short 6 week mandatory research project, I did my paediatrics posting for 8 weeks which was super exhausting because an average day is 7am-7pm. And then I'm currently doing my psychiatry posting which is a lot more chill. We have a 3 week break before going back to psychiatry so I planned 2 trips - 8 days to Shanghai + Osaka with my family, and another 5 day trip to Vietnam with friends. Also can't believe it's about almost a year to our final MBBS exam! Time flies...I still can remember being a clueless first year. Now a slightly less clueless 4th year.

This will be about my 1st trip to China & Japan. I headed to Shanghai because my brother was heading there for a business trip so my mum and I decided to tag along After 3 days in Shanghai, my mum and I would fly to Osaka to continue the trip. Originally wanted to go to Okinawa but I think you need a car to get around in Okinawa and I haven't driven since passing my driving test 3 years ago! And because I really really wanted to go to Universal Studios Japan.

July 2017 - Switzerland

Annual summer break, annual big holiday! This is 2 months late cos I was lazy and too busy watching dramas!
We chose Switzerland on a whim. I just thought the 1.8k flights to Zurich on SQ were pretty reasonable so I booked it, and didn't expect everything else to be so expensive. Luckily, it was a family trip, so all expenses covered by the ATMs, aka the parents haha. My sister booked the flight a couple of weeks after us due to some scheduling problems, but thankfully, due to wonderful SQ, we got seats all together :) 

Also, all my pictures are unedited/unfiltered, and blogger seems to reduce the quality of pictures which is really annoying, but real life is definitely prettier than whatever we took!

Drama Reviews - School 2017 (2017)

Uni has started, but luckily, the 4th year of medical school is considerably less intense than 3rd year. Plus, we have a 6 week research project at the start of Y4, and I happened to choose a pretty straightforward project and I chiong-ed in the first 2 weeks - which left me a lot of time in the past 3 weeks to watch stuff. So I picked up School 2017! Mainly because I was an IOI fan and curious about how Sejeong was doing, and also because everyone was swooning over the main couple.

School 2017 is about Ra Eun Ho (Kim Se Jeong), a pretty ordinary student in Geumdo High School who doesn't like to study and prefers drawing webtoons, and how she gets involved with Hyun Tae Woon (Kim Jung Hyun) through a mysterious figure X who is doing pranks in school.

Drama Reviews - Dear My Friends (2016)

Dear My Friends is a slice of life drama about a bunch of ahjummas (+ a few ahjussis) who have been friends since elementary school, and their children. It's a rare drama focused on the elderly, and it is certainly not for marathoning imo. It's rather short at 16 episodes but I took more than a week to finish it because I can only watch 2-3 episodes in one sitting before feeling completely emotionally drained.
