News Round Up: more Flower Grandpas, Night Watchman cast, international F4 reunion & dating HYD couple

This xxx over Flowers trend is officially a never ending story. From the same network that brought "Grandpa Over Flowers", comes the drama, "Flower Grandpas Investigation Unit". Three of the flower boys transform into their grandpa versions. It's currently airing in Korea. More info from dramabeans.


Another foursome update from the upcoming, "The Records of Nightwatchman". They have casted Jung Il-woo (from another reverse harem, "Flower Boy Ramyun Shop", Go Sung-hee and Yunho. This from the producers of "Sungkyunkwan Scandal". The drama will air on July. More info from dramabeans 1 & 2.


The poster and trailer of Lupin III starring Shun Oguri has been released. But there's no signs of Jerry Yan yet who plays a villain. Then I suddenly noticed that there's another F4 member included in the cast! It's Kim Joon! Okay, I definitely have to watch this rare F4 reunion. The movie will be released on August 30.

Book Review: The Scarab Thief # 1

The Scarab Thief # 1 by C.L. Stone

Kayli resorts to pick-pocketing to support her brother no thanks to their drunk father. But while she was on the "job" she catches the attention of the Academy boys or maybe the other way around? This happens at the same time with "The Ghost Bird Series" and at times the two stories will overlap. Actually, it's a bit grown up version but the totally opposite of the earlier series. The genre is under new adult which means the themes are mature like their outlook in life and more risque situations. I liked it that it's not another TGBS. It was a breath of fresh air. I couldn't take another long story of waiting for the heroine to kiss anyone! One is enough. The heroine and the boys also have their own unique personalities that are totally different from TGBS. I also liked that there's the reverse harem stock characters of twins and the villain. I had an Ouran moment when she tried to guess the twins' identities.…

Poll: Kuro to Kin no Hirakanai Kagi Couple

And the winner for the guy to whom Kanade should have an unhealthy relationship with is..the stepbrother, Ikuto! Okay that didn't sound right. Lol. For the first time, I'm happy that there's only 321 people who joined the poll. And I do hope they're all 18 years and above. But I'm nervous that my review for the anime is consistently the most popular! My favorite cool-looking Yukio was close in the heels of Ikuto. While I'm not really into teacher-type, I'm so into the mysterious and dangerous-looking, Chihiro. But sadly, he's at the bottom of the poll. And here's the rest of the votes: 
Ikuto (stepbrother)  128 (39%)
Yukio (former schoolmate)  120 (37%)
Tomoomi (hairdresser) 31 (9%)
Chihiro (teacher) 22 (6%)
Tatsuki (classmate)  20 (6%)

Happy Birthday Taurus!

Happy birthday Homare! Wallie is up until May 20 at Starry Sky.

Book Review: To All The Boys I've Loved Before

To All The Boys I've Loved Before # 1 (ongoing) by Jenny Han

Lara Jean Song always writes farewell letters to the boys she once liked/loved as a way to close her one-sided, imaginary final chapter before moving on with her life. But suddenly the letters were mailed to all the five boys! 
I first saw this being given away in dramabeans. (The heroine and the author are Korean-American so it figures that a copy was given to the kdrama site). And the sirens in my head went off when I saw the title and read the plot. We have to wait for book two though, "P.S. I Love You", if it will become a full-blown reverse harem. But if my hunch is right, I get this feeling it will be. I'm really dying to know what happens next. 
They say not to judge the book by it's cover. But the very cute and girly cover gives justice to it's contents. I don't know maybe I just haven't read this type of romance for ages. It's a light reading with sweet vibe. Not too angsty or …

Book Review: The Ghost Bird Series

The Ghost Bird Series - Books 1-5 (ongoing) by C.L. Stone
The very shy and loner, Sang Sorenson moved to a quiet, suburban neighborhood, well more specifically because her mom wants it that way. All her life, she's been told that life is dangerous and that men will do nasty things to her. She never had made any friends but all of a sudden she's gotten her hands (almost) full of friends from the mysterious Academy. And might I add, they're all boys.  Book 1 - Introductions - I have this talent of not really digesting the plot and forgetting about it so later on I'll be really surprised with the plot twists. And oh boy, I was in disbelief with the number of boys. When I thought my expectations has already been set, another boy is introduced, and then another and another and so on and so forth. But my excitement for the abundance of boys was eclipsed by the very slow pacing. 
Book 2 - First Days - I. Hated. Sang. I was jealous of her! I couldn't relate at her at al…

Anime Review: Capriccio - stile Arcana Famiglia (OVA)

Capriccio - stile Arcana Famiglia (OVA)

Jolly creates a potion which would have serious yet hilarious effects. It's such a fun episode! And the only hint I can give is that you'll see all of them in a new light. Dante really shined in this OVA.
