K-Movie: Miracle in Cell No. 7

Two days ago, a colleague of mine came to work with puffy eyes. Like she did some major crying last night. And true enough, she indeed cried hard but not because of some personal problems. It was because of the Korean movie Miracle in Cell No. 7.

She eagerly gave us a copy of the movie the next day and made sure that we watch it when we get home later that same day. And so I did. And boy, did I have some cry-fest on my own as well.

The adorable casts (L-R): Park Shin Hye, Kal So Won, Ryu Seung Ryong 

Miracle in Cell No. 7 (Hangul: 7번방의 선물; RR: 7beonbangui Seonmul; lit. "A Gift from Room 7") is a 2013 South Korean film starring Ryu Seung Ryong and Park Shin Hye. The film is a heartwarming comedy and family melodrama about a mentally challenged man wrongfully imprisoned for murder who builds friendships with the hardened criminals in his cell, and they help him see his daughter again by breaking her in.

When I started watching it, I'm preparing myself to hold back my tears. I'm thinking maybe my friend was just easily moved to tears. Maybe the movie wouldn't be that touching. But after making it to just about 30 minutes of the movie, I was crying like it's nobody's business.

These guys brought me laughter and tears. Such great actors.

I adore movies like this. It's so heartwarming, touching. The script was well-written. And the actors portrayed their characters so well. You can't help but admire such wonderful art. And Park Shin Hye never disappoints. I didn't even know before that she'll be in this movie.

The love of a father for his daughter.

The love between the father and his daughter is so great, it's overwhelming. I was so emotional the whole movie.

Such great father-daughter love made me miss my own father more.

I highly, highly recommend you watch Miracle in Cell No. 7. It's a great movie with equally great actors. And I promise you, you won't regret every single tear you'll be shedding for this film. ☺

Of Girls Generation and Demi Lovato

Just now, while listening to my new Demi Lovato playlist, I came across the song Mistake from her Unbroken album. And I was thinking, this song sounds familiar

It turns out, the Demi Lovato's Mistake has the same melody as that of Girls Generation's Japanese single, Born To Be A Lady. Really. Go and listen for yourselves.

It's too similar I thought for a while that Mistake was the English version of Born To Be A Lady.

Park Se Joo and Seo Yoo Kyung are Perfect for Each Other

I haven't been watching Marry Him If You Dare lately but I've been keeping myself updated through klaritia's recaps. Oh and the screen caps there are amazing!

And as much as I'm rooting for Mi Rae-Se Joo couple when this drama started, right now I am having second thoughts. Scratch that. I am definitely CHANGED. Seriously, Seo Yoo Kyung is too adorable! And I am transforming transformed into a Se Joo-Yoo Kyung fan.

Come on, Se Joo! Why can you not see the perfect girl in front of you? Instead of doing whatever for Mi Rae and in the end getting shove aside by Kim Shin, why don't you just focus on Seo Yoo Kyung??

From the beginning, I thought Yoo Kyung is going to be that arrogant, bitchy, I'm-so-gorgeous-I-can-get-all-the-guys-I-want-so-worship-me kind of girl. But apparently, I was wrong. The scene that had me fall for her character (figuratively, of course) was when she was waiting so long for Se Joo in the bar and was about to leave when he suddenly appeared. Her trying to regain composure and self-control was all too funny and cute. It was an "awwww" moment for me, really.

And then everything that she does after that is just too nice and cute and oh-so-perfect for Se Joo! Honestly, this is the only drama I've encountered where I am more interested with the second leads rather than the mains.

Anyway, if you're craving for some Se Joo perfection, check out these two favorite sites of mine:
