The Restless (korean movie)

In fictional ancient Korea, Yi-gwak is a demon hunter who lost his lover, Yon-hwa, and colleagues of demon hunters in the past. He enters the Midheaven, a transitory place for spirits, only to find the spirit of Yon-hwa who has forgotten about him. His deceased former mentor, Ban-chu, masterminds a demonic rebellion in Midheaven, wishing to invade the living world.
this movie stars kim tae hee(iris) as sohwa/yonhwa and jung woo sung(athena,a moment to remember) as yi gwak. this is such a romantic (historical at the same time) action movie, at the end my heart shattered againnnn at the open ending. sigh yigwak was so romantic, never forgetting his love. sighhhh i can only sigh and do nothing else, wishing it was happier.
the action was fabulous, all the fights made me drool, yes even the demons lol it was so cool hehehe i loved the plot. we don't see this type of plot much nowadays, such a simple and pure love, with so much action. he just protected her, even though she had already lost her memories, and she fell in love all over again.
you can watch this on youtube complete with english subtitles. enjoy!!!

City Hunter (korean drama)

‘City Hunter’ is an original script based on the world-famous novel by Japan’s Tsukasa Hojo. Since it became public that Korea would be the first remake of this story into a drama, ‘City Hunter’ has been receiving worldwide attention. ‘City Hunter’ has switched the setting from Tokyo 1980 to Seoul 2011, and according to the original story structure, the protagonist becomes a city hunter and his character develops while resolving gratifying cases.
this is one of the perfect food for me. it has the right amount of ingredients-action, romance, sadness and some slight touches on humor. sigh i definitely enjoyed watching this and i think, this role suited lee min ho perfectly. but maybe i'm biased cos i like cool heroes who can fight and all. hehehe there were some really sad parts too, parts that made me blink my eyes more often than not. sigh as for the ending, i had hoped to see a little more, it kinda felt open. with the romance, with his dad among other things.
but overall, this is a good watch which i definitely recommend for action and romance fans. not only that, it also has humor, so much revenge and twists. it's all complete and online. i watched it on epdrama. enjoy!!!
