The drama was also known as "The Shrewd Wife" when it was shown in Channel U this year and i enjoyed watching the drama and has been looking forward to the movie version to be shown in local cinemas. Those who have been left frustrated by the drama's open ending will finally get to find out who the main character Xie Anzhen will choose 4 years later after her divorce from her cheating husband Wen Ruifan. Who are you rooting for? I'm of course hoping Anzhen will choose the charming and faithful Lan Tienwei who has always been there for her during her devastating divorce and betrayal from her ex-husband Ruifan. You can check out the exciting movie trailer and lovely song by one of my favorite singers 郁可唯 featured in the movie below:

Korean Drama "Ghost" Is My Top Favorite Drama For 2012 (Spoiler Alert)


Korean drama "Ghost" brought twist after twist in its exciting plot and finally ended in Korea last week. According to AGB Nielsen Media Research on the 10th, SBS drama "Ghost" rated 12.2% on its final episode. This is 0.7% lower than the previous record. It is such a pity that such a good quality and entertaining drama with a great cast did not bring in the high ratings that it definitely deserved. Hubby and i finished watching the final 2 episodes during the weekends and was really satisfied with the happy ending and am glad that the writer did not kill off any of my favorite characters comprising of Park Ki Young, Kwon Hyuk Joo and Yoo Gang Mi in the drama. They really make a good team and i love seeing Hyun Joo and Ki Young working together to fight the baddies in the show. I'm glad 2 other members (Lee Tae Gyoon and Byeon Sang Woo) of the cyber crime squad also joined them in rounding up all the baddies in the end and were not the suspect spies in the team :)


I'm really impressed with the writer for coming up with such a good script. Hubby and i really enjoyed watching the drama with its fast-paced and interesting cases and the main casts did a great job of portraying their characters especially main lead So Ji Sub who acted 2 characters (Park Ki Yong and the late Kim Woo Hyeon). Eom Gi Joon also did a great job portraying the main villain, the chilling and cold-blooded Jo Hyeon Min. Even though Jo Hyeon Min killed so many people in the show we still can't help feeling sad in the end when he realized that he had killed the woman who truly loves him and was pregnant with his child. He had shown no regrets at all for committing all those evil deeds and killing so many lives out of revenge but Park Ki Young really delivers the final blow to him by revealing in the end that his ex-girlfriend Shin Hyo Jeong was pregnant with his child and had decided not to reveal Hyeon Min was the true murderer of Nam Sam Woon in the end. Jo Hyeon Min had mistakenly killed her for betraying him and he could not accept the truth! I really enjoyed the final showdown between Park Ki Young and Jo Hyeon Min.

I also love how the drama highlights the harm the internet can bring to its users if used in the wrong ways and raise public awareness of cyber crime through the various cases shown. I hope fellow fans of the show have enjoyed watching the drama as much as i did ;) For those who are new to the drama, you can read more about it from my previous post ( and give it a try. I look forward to more great dramas from the writer of "Ghost". Do check out this interesting article i found online about the drama:

Well Made Drama Ghost - Whats The Secret?


SBS TV drama "Ghost - Drama", a cyber investigate, ended on the 9th in popularity.

"Ghost - Drama", captivated viewers from the beginning while raising the alarm about cyber crime.

In the midst of the conflict between genius hacker Jo Hyeon-min and police officer Kim Woohyeon, this drama showed how careless comments can lead DIDOS programs as well as hackers to attack the nation and how it can affect the network and long pole.

It showed at the same time, the danger caused by one virus and the scariness behind cyber crime.

The drama shocked viewers in the beginning with the set up of Woo-hyeon dying and then Ki-yeong coming back as Woo-hyeon then brought out curiosity in the middle of the drama regarding the spy in the police force and went through with Kim Woohyeon and Jo Hyeon-min's mental war. The storyline was well made-up with twist after twist and it didn't' try to force in any romance in between but focused on the investigation point. It doesn't mean there wasn't any romance in it.

The little bit of romance in the drama was only added in so slightly so that it didn't stand out or break the wave. The romantic scenes added as spice to the serious drama. There was a love-line between So Ji-sub and Kwak Byeong-gyoo and Kim Byeol.

The cast did an excellent job as well. So Ji-sub pulled off two roles and Eom Gi-joon portrayed the cold and murderous characteristics of Jo Hyeon-min with just the right amount of density. Kwak Byeong-gyoo's performance in creating the character of Kwon Hyeok-joo, a crazy character to which he added his own personalities.

"Ghost - Drama" raised the alarm about the seriousness of cyber crime and didn't lose its track on the main theme. It chased two hares at once and perfected the idea of an investigations drama.

Eating is Singaporean's favorite pastime and i'm no exception ;) I love having breakfast at Chong Pang Market with my family and enjoying my favorite childhood dishes :)

This is my all time favorite NDP song "Home" by local singer Kit Chan.

Happy 47th Birthday Singapore, A Place I Call Home :)

Singapore is a place i call home and love and i'm grateful that i'm able to live in a safe and harmonious country with my love ones and friends from various races and religions. I'm proud to be a Singaporean and hope that we will never lose the Singapore identity with the influx of foreigners who do not bother to integrate to our society. I hope my beloved country will continue to grow and prosper without forgetting our less fortunate countrymen and we will also be more tolerant and understanding towards their needs. Happy 47th Birthday  to Singapore and my fellow Singaporeans :)

Hotaru The Movie: It's Only A Little Light In My Life



For fellow fans of popular Japanese drama series "Hotaru no Hikari' season 1 and 2, you would be happy to know that the eagerly awaited "Hotaru The Movie" is finally showing in local cinemas on 23 August 2012 (according to updates from film distributor Encore Films Facebook). The movie first premiered in cinemas in Japan on 9 June 2012 and i have been looking forward to watching it in local cinema. Big thanks to Encore Films for bringing the movie to Singapore :) I first blogged last year about the movie at
( and can't believe the movie is finally completed and we would be able to watch it this month!!!

Picture 5

The movie did well when it premiered in Japan and Taiwan and its main leads  were at Taiwan for its movie premiere. If only they are able to come to Singapore...

Picture 2


I'm a huge fan of the drama and have both sets of its DVDs and love the wonderful chemistry shared between the lovely and bubbly Ayase Haruka and charming Naohito Fujiki in the show. They really bring to life my favorite characters Amemiya Hotaru and Seichi Takano in the show and endears the characters to viewers' hearts. 



“Hotaru no Hikari” was originally a manga by Satoru Hiura which was adapted to a TV drama in 2007. Haruka Ayase played a quirky interior design company employee named Hotaru Amemiya who had no interest in relationships and choose to abandone love while in her 20s. She instead spent most of her free time laying around her messy rented house in her jersey while drinking beer and earning herself the title “himono-onna” (dried-up woman).



During the course of the series, she falls in love with her boss, Seiichi Takano (Naohito Fujiki) who turns out to be the son of her landlord and they were forced to stay together as he had to vacate his own house after his divorce. Seiichi also ended up falling for the innocent charm of Hotaru although he was initially horrified by Hotaru's "himono onna image and behavior which is a vast difference from how she behaves at work. A prim and proper office lady who is admired by her peers. By the end of the second season in 2010, they were finally preparing to get married.



I can't wait to see their married life and also my favorite Hotaru in a wedding dress during her dream honeymoon in Italy :)) Really miss seeing the cute "Ahomiya" in action although i can't imagine her doing her favorite "goro goro" activity in the streets of Italy like she loves doing at home heeheee..






Set two years after "Hotaru no Hikari 2" drama series, Hotaru Amemiya learns that her boss and now husband Seichi Takano has dreamed of vacationing in Rome, Italy like in the movie "Roman Holiday". Hotaru then makes plans to go to Rome for their honeymoon. Rome, Italy prepare ... Hotaru Amemiya and Seichi Takano are coming!



Hotaru meets another “himono-onna” named Rio Saeki (Yasuko Matsuyuki) by chance in Rome and gets caught up in a situation Rio’s younger brother Yu (Yuya Tegoshi) has stirred up. Later, she gets cut off from Seiichi and runs frantically through the streets of Rome to find him. It will be interesting to see how a himono onna like Hotaru will survive in a foreign country and what will happen when things do not go her way....  





Do support the movie when it premieres in local cinemas on 23 August 2012 ;)
