Movies

I might not have updated this blog for almost a year, I did watch some awesome movies I want to share with you. So take some time to watch the overload of trailers and to read the summaries since this post is going to be long.

I’m a Cyborg, but that’s okay

Convinced that she is not entirely human but in fact part android, Young-goon’s health begins to deteriorate as she gives up eating food and instead decides to “charge her batteries” by administering electric shocks to herself via a small transistor radio.

As her mental state continues to deteriorate, the troubled young woman takes to donning her grandmother’s dentures and carrying on extended conversations with various machines around the mental health facility.

Of course Young-goon isn’t the only person suffering from a mental malady in this hospital, and it’s not long before Il-soon, a young man with a penchant for wearing masks and a reputation for being anti-social, is admitted as well.

A good-looking young man who sets about convincing his fellow patients that he has the power to absorb their personality traits, Il-soon gradually begins to develop a tender romance with the troubled Young-goon.

Later, when hospital officials determine that the only way to save Young-goon is to administer electro-shock therapy, the treatment has the unusual side-effect of convincing the would-be android that she has been fully recharged and possesses the ability to fire bullets from her fingers. In reality, Young-goon’s physical deterioration has become truly alarming.

With little time to lose before the love of his life slides beyond the point of no return, Il-soon enlists the aid of his concerned fellow patients in getting Young-goon back on the path to good health.

A “sort-of” romantic comedy. It’s rain at his best. I’ve never laughed so much at a movie yet felt sad. I think this is the best movie I’ve seen this year so far, why? Just watch it and you’ll know.

Seducing Mr. Perfect

Min-joon (Uhm Jung-hwa) is a believer in true love and always very dedicated to her current boyfriend. However, men always break up with her – her latest boyfriend ends their relationship on her birthday. Distracted by the latest break-up, she bumps into a car and a man steps out of it – who turns out to be her new boss, Robin Heiden (Daniel Henney). Heiden has very clear ideas about a relationship and love: both are a game of power and Min-Joon seeks advice from him, as she doesn’t want to get dumped again. However, when she starts to treat men like Heiden treats women, she realizes that she prefers her older behaviour, even if that means that she gets dumped again; she doesn’t see love as a game of power and never will. Heiden, who has to deal with his own heartbreak, as he loved a woman so much that she had to shoot him to get the message across that she wasn’t interested in him, starts to soften at Min-joon’s attitude towards life. He eventually falls in love with her and both get into a real relationship and a happy ending of their own.

It’s sweet, maybe to sweet for some of you.  But sometimes you need something like this. A sexy man who you understand (you think so, at least). A woman who tries her hardest, it just doesn’t seem to work, or does it?

Want a super sweet romance, watch it.

Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery is a korean movie adapted from the Japanese manga Antique Bakery. A man with an unreconciled past, Jin Hyuk  (Ji Hyun) opens a pastry shop even though hating cakes. What’s worse he has no choice but to hire a gay patissiere  (Song Woo) who makes wonderful cake just to keep his business alive. Song Woo (Jae Won) is a professed playboy and once confessed to Soo Hyun but was rejected. After the incident, he becomes a guy magnet and this became a problem with work because guys fall in love with him. Because he also has problems working with girls, Jin Hyuk tries hard to find male employees who wouldn’t fall for Jae Won to help in the store. Eventually Jin Hyuk hires a young man (Yoo Ah In) who got bribed by the cakes and wants to be Song Woo’s apprentice. Another guy enters the scene (Soo Yeong) as unofficial bodyguard of Jin Hyuk who unfortunately falls for Song Woo. So the chaotic world of Antique Bakeshop lives on.

For people who like their cakes and some hot men. It’s super akward yet super funny to watch them find what they are looking for.

Windstruck

When police officer Kyungjin met with Myungwoo accidentally in a crime, she found that this responsible teacher was a really nice guy. At that night, Kyungjin got into a fight with a bunch of high school kids and got trouble in a big gun fight between rival drug dealers. Myungwoo tried to help her but then something happened that forces them stayed together all day long. They got closer to each other and Myungwoo was not able to repulse the strange but pure nature. He fell in love with her. One day, when Kyungjin was chasing a notorious criminal, Myungwoo helped her again, however, not knowing that what would happen that day changed their relationship forever…

A sad but strong movie.  It makes you want to feel the wind. Makes you want to feel like a bird, flying over the ocean. It makes you cry and smile at the same time.

Longing for a sad movie, watch it here.

I know loads of Korean movies, but they are good even if your not into “Asia”.  Once you watched one you’ll won’t stop watching Korea movies.

So are you going to watch any of them? Please tell me. Also if you have any recommendations Put them in a comment below
