Paradise Kiss

Paradise-Kiss-2011 Paradise-kiss

Starring: Keiko Kitagawa, Osamu Mukai, Yusuke Yumamoto

The movie is about a very pretty and studious student who always obeys her mother. She’s trying her best to have better grades just to please her mother, although the truth is, she wanted freedom and try doing what she wanted. This [what she wanted] actually happened when she met a group of fashion designers. At first, she kept on refusing their offer to be a model, but then, she met the leader of the group and noticed that there’s something about his stare that bothers her. Some of the members of the group went to her school just to persuade her to be a model, and she always ended up in the studio of the fashion designers. She started to love staying in the Paradise Kiss studio and being with the designers. She was even dressed up to see if she really is the one. Part of her wanted to do the job, but another part of her is afraid of what reaction her mother might have. The leader then talked to her and told her he doesnt need a puppet who is being controlled by another person. She decided to do the modelling to prove that she’s not a puppet and to help the group in the competition. Through time, they started to fall for each other, tho the leader thought that the girl was still in love with her classmate.

Rating: ★★★★★ ★★★★☆

I think i cant give it a perfect ten, because the development of their love story is so fast. That’s the only part I didnt like. The story is kinda fast. But! Overall, it’s rally good. I love it. The plot of the story, is very well-written (i was just expecting it will take some time before they fell in love. bec there were no definite signs that they like each other). The characters are all great. Keiko Kitagawa is very very pretty, she looks like a doll and i love her expressions in the drama. And i notice she looks like Iya Villania!  Osamu Mukai also did a great job though i thought he was a gay at first. Haha! Twas bec of the way he was dressed. Haha! And the rest of the members of the group were amazing. If you want something new, try this movie. Especially if you like fashion, this is a must-watch for you then 🙂

The drama is about Go Dok Mi, a shy copy editor, who doesnt want to leave her apartment and interact with the outside world as much as possible. She always peeks at her neighbor across the street until she was caught by Enrique Geum, her neighbor’s cousin, a famous video game creator, who is funny, talkative, and naughty. Her quiet life is turned upside down as she and Enrique build relationship that made her go out of her shell. The story becomes more interesting as she get to know her neighbors and meet the people from her past.

The plot of this drama is very different from the other korean dramas. It’s different from the usual love stories i’ve watched. It doesnt start with the lead actors fighting and then falling in love, or a girl pretending to be a boy and later on falls in love with someone, or a man who travels from 300 years and meets his better half in the modern time. It’s just a simple love story wherein a very talkative boy meets a very shy girl. I really like this drama. It’s very very very funny because of Yoon Shi Yoon. His role in this drama is very different from his role in Baker King. He’s so funny and very energetic. And the other casts proved that they really deserve the roles they got.

Tho i really love the drama, I didnt give it ten starts because i think the development of their love story is too slow. I mean, I’m almost half of the story, but their love story is not that visible. I guess it is focusing more on the funny side of the drama and making the viewers relate to the story especially those who are introverts, or those who are afraid to go out of their shell.

When i read the plot of this drama, I wasnt that excited to watch it because i thought it was just like the Rooftop Prince. I still watched tho, expecting it would have a twist that will make it better than RP.

As expected, a scholar from Joseon period traveled 300 years and arrived in the 21st century. He can go back to Joseon whenever he wanted because of the talisman he got from a gisaeng. The scholar was clueless about the things in the modern world, but an actress came to his path and helped him adjust in the present time. And through time, both of them fell in love with each other, but because they came from different times, hindrances came to test their love for each other.

Rating: ★★★★★ ★★☆☆☆

I dont really like the drama that much. Yes, there were scenes that made me laugh and made me kilig haha, but i guess the plot’s not that realistic, and there are times wherein the story is too slow and too fast. But overall, it’s not that bad. I think traveling and arriving in different times to meet the better half of the lead is becoming too mainstream nowadays.
