Storyline
33-year-old Akiyama Satomi is a history teacher at the prestigious all-girls high school she once attended. She has earned the nickname “ohitorisama” (meaning “one person”) for her perfectionism and capability to handle any work by herself. At the same time, the name also refers to her lack of romance. One day, a young man named Shinichi arrives at the school as a temporary instructor. He’s 10 years younger than Satomi, has only worked part-time jobs, and has neither money nor status. Although the other female teachers and students find him cute, he is completely not Satomi’s type… or is he? Will love blossom between this unlikely pair?  – Tokyograph

My thoughts,
A bit draggy at times but suprisingly entertaining though..

Still Triangle irritates me because its red herrings are totally senseless and sucks.  If the scriptwriters purpose of wanting to divert our attention from the murderer, I’d be more thrilled not able to guess who the murderer was.. I love unpredictable movies / dramas!! However, that’s not the case for Triangle, I actually feel kinda cheated because I felt that the scriptwriter has belittle my  “intelligence” 😛 They should have divert it more intelligently and not senselessly or aimlessly.

Moonlight Resonance

Short Review:
I have finally finished watching this really long drama.  Quite a similar storyline to Heart of Greed with similar actors and actresses too but this time their role of characters are reversed.  For instance,  Michelle Yim was a good sis-in law and Suzanna Kwan was the villain mistress to Jack Wu but here their roles are reversed. Suzanna Kwan is the sis-in-law (bad one) and Michelle Yim is the villain mistress.

In Heart of Greed, Moses Chan was loyally in love with Linda Chung who loved Continue reading

Painted Skin

It’s not a horror movie. It’s not a kung-fu movie either… I would say it’s a dark version of a SWEET FAIRYTALE movie. It gets really sweet in the end. If you love sweet things then this movie is for you. I’m the type who cry easily but somehow I was not even touched or moved to tears. Anyway, it was still enjoyable mainly because of Zhou Xun‘s engaging protrayal as a demon fox spirit Xiao Wei.
