I just finished watching Boys Over Flowers, which is a Korean drama and found the story mind sweeping and entertaining. Its one of those romance stories that make you think its not possible, but then... yes its one of those stories. For girls, it keeps you glued to the story 'til the end. Its not like Twilight since there are no vampires but its more realistic in a sense and the story is anything but boring. I wouldn't say boys shouldn't watch it. Infact, I think the boys should watch it because of the four main boys in the story. I know that there is one person in there that boys can relate to.
When I started to watch this, I didn't want to stop watching it until I reached the end, so I sat down and watched it 'til I didn't finish it. I had to do that in order for it to not haunt me because I wouldn't be able to sleep if I didn't finish watching it.
The story does not ramble on and there are no parts in it where it would make you think okay moving on because each sequence in the story is important for the story to move on forward. I would say that their separation might have been too long and then the amnesia thing in the last episode left me thinking that maybe they won't get together, but they did. It ended happily ever after.
I loved how the writer had so many different characters in this story. Its like making spicy rice where the author is adding all these different flavors to make the story more interesting and the actors do a good job of portraying the characters. I think they do a better job than the Japanese version.
To conclude, I would recommend this show to everyone. It is worth your time watching and you should read the comics before or after you watch the show. Things will make some sense when you read the comics since this show is based off of the japanese comics, Hana yori dango or boys over flowers. I just watched the show and in the process of reading the comics. I normally don't read comics, but this show compelled me to read the comics. I would say you should keep an open mind if you don't like comics and read this one.

My apologies

I apologize for not posting anything. I don't know the identity of my readers. I will try again to post much often as possible and I am expanding my posts, so there is nothing one thing I will be posting. You could see book reviews, fiction works, poetry works, and much much more. Thank you for those who do read my posts and I appreciate your support. I will continue to post and you keep you entertained and maybe, possibly informed.

Vampire Diaries: The Awakening

I don't know how many of you guys have stepped into the world of vampire fiction, but I have just taken a step into it and I am not happy with the first vampire book I have picked up.
I am reading The Vampire Diaries right now and I see a romance story with good characterization and I could say plot, but the problem I have now is with the plot. I see a romance story here instead of a story, story about vampires. I don't mind the romance aspect of the plot, but I would like to see more of the vampire story come out. I would like to see more about Katerina, Damon and Stefan. I know the love triangle is important part of the story, but Stefan and Damon are vampires so I would like to their vampire sides more and perhaps be introduced to more vampires. I don't mind seeing the brothers family and see someone else crop up in the story since the brothers have been around since the fifteenth century. It would sure add more depth to the story.
I have to say though it still does absorb the reader into the story and the progression is not bad, but I'm saying this based upon reading The Awakening. I would say it is worth reading at least once, not more than that if you don't enjoy the books completely. Then again those people who are enjoying the romance story and the story the way it is written then by all means go ahead and read away. Go buy the books. But those who are looking for real stories I would suggest reading once and moving on.
