Manga Review: Megane Apato


Megane Apato (Glasses Apartment) by An Tsukumiya

Haruse was requested by her grandfather to be the landlady of the Haruse Apartment or better know as the Glasses Apartment due to the glasses-wearing tenants. I'm not really into the glasses-type even though I wear glasses. But there's more to the story than meets the eye which I find very cute. It looks like a oneshot manga but I'm not really sure.

Kdrama Review: Reply 1994


Reply 1994 - 21 episodes

The drama is set in 1994. It's about the lives of 7 college students from different provinces who lived in a boarding house in Seoul. Among the male boarders, is Sung Na Jung's husband in the present time. The story will teases you with hints as it moved back and forth from the past to the present. 

This is the drama that I equally love and hate. I didn't know it was even possible. I give it a perfect 10 for direction, acting, and set/props. But the ending left me all heartbroken. She didn't end up with the guy I loved! But I've moved on now so I can finally post this without anger.

I enjoyed the overall themes and that's coming from someone with zero knowledge of Korean history, geography and Reply 1997. I love how they interweave the past events, pop culture and regional differences in the story. The drama was nostalgic for me too as I am part of the Generation X. 10 years ago I was in 6th grade. Do the math, yes, I'm old! The last lines hit the spot that I'm part of a generation that both enjoyed the analog and digital technologies. The most glaring example is how technology plays a big part in the drama. You'll see how it evolved from pagers, payphones, cellphones and smartphones. It feels like you also traveled in time with them. You'll also feel the ups and downs of the journey of all the characters as they all shine. It's quite an entertaining ride with a good mix of comedy and drama. 

Is it just me but have you noticed when the story reaches a critical point with the love interest the story afterwards just goes on a downhill or becomes tedious. And it never goes back to that point again. Take for example: Sungkyunwkan Scandal and  To the Beautiful You. I'm such a love junkie. 

You'll enjoy this one but it comes with a great risk. Depending of who you'll be rooting for, you'll either love it or hate it. I got the bitter end of the deal.
