A note to visitors

Due to my new found love/addiction (reading), it is possible that I may not post anything in this blog for a long, long time.

It pains me greatly because I have invested so much time in this blog way back. Give Me Some Dramas is like my baby. What I am regretting is my decision to have a separate blog for my book reviews, I should’ve thought better of it.

But what is done is done (I don’t want to finally admit it, but I think I have outgrown my addiction to anything asian), if ever you still want to feel my presence, you can head to my book reviews blog BookOaths. If you’re a bookworm like yours truly, a comment is gladly appreciated.

Ciao!

A woman is meant to be swayed by a man who holds out his hand when she’s going through the hardest time.

note: This is not a full-length review, more of a rant.

Even if I am not watching Asian dramas lately, I have been up-to-date with what’s going in on in doramaland. The success of You Who Came from the Stars (YWCftS) did not miss my notice.

What prompted me to finally watch this is its nearing broadcast in one of our local channels, I thought to myself, I should not miss it because with the way that the channel is promoting it, I am sure it will be a hit.

So, after two days of watching it straight, my verdict is???

Yeorobeun, I am in the Continue reading

Mini-review: Bride For Rent

Yesterday, my office mates and I watched a Filipino film - Bride for Rent (BfR).

I am not really a fan of Pinoy films (or I don’t watch that many Pinoy films) but I watched BfR because I was peer pressured (lol).

Thankfully, I enjoyed the film so much. Enjoyed it to the point that I am somewhat compelled to write a mini-review because I don’t want to forget my thoughts about it.

Bride for Rent is a story about a rich boy, Rocco (Xian Lim), who is looking forward to getting his trust fund once he becomes 25.

Before that fateful day, Rocco and his friends drunkenly gambled away ten million pesos, making the issue of getting Continue reading

[Sunday Special 03] Kiseki by GReeeeN

A bout of laziness, two weeks of film production and a power outage later, I am back with my third video for this blog’s Sunday Special.

I was really tempted to skip this week but oh well.

This week’s song is one of my favorite Japanese songs from one of my favorite Japanese dramas ever.

It’s Kiseki by GReeeeN

I remember that everytime Rookies ended, this song would play and I would have tears in my eyes. Kiseki is such a heart-warming song and it complements such a perfect drama.

For those of you who haven’t watched Rookies yet, I urge you to do now.

[Sunday Special 02] Dong Le – Tank

It is week two of this blog’s Sunday Special.

This week, I’ll be sharing my favorite OST from the Taiwanese version of Hana Kimi, Dong Le by Tank.

I remember how crazy I was with Hana Kimi back in those days. I was so gaga over Wu Chun and thinking how obsessed I was during that period brings me shame now.

I used to like Wu Chun but that like turned to dislike and I can’t imagine seeing any series of his. Too bad right (I wonder if it’s the muscles or his acting skill)?

disclaimer: I do not own the video used in this post.

My new drama crack: The Heirs

, , , ,

From being doubtful to insanely searching for Heirs related videos/teasers, how I have fallen.

The Heirs - Chan YoungFact: I’m not a Lee Min Ho fan. MH fan = crazily obsessed with him. I’ve watched a few dramas of his and I can confidently say that I am not enamored with him. I do like Park Shin Hye though.

So, the only reason I knew about Continue reading

[Sunday Special 01] Like Me – Lee Sang Kyu

Tags

, , ,

As a step in reviving this blog and making sure that I get to post regularly, I am going to introduce a weekly feature – GMSD’s Sunday Special (SS).

So what is SS about?

Every Sunday, I am going to post a music video of an OST that I love from a drama (be it Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, etc). Here in our country, our radio stations always play the old classics during Sundays and I thought that why not do that? It’s a great way to look back to the songs and series that made me what I am today (drama addict).

For my first post, I am giving you my favorite OST from the korean drama What’s Up Fox/Foxy Lady (WUF) – Like Me by Lee Sang Kyu.

WUF aired in 2006 and starred Go Hyung Jung and Chung Jung Myung.

The real song starts at the one-minute mark so don’t be put off by the weird music at the beginning :)

p.s. video is not mine
