Recap and Review: Love O2O / 微微一笑很倾城 (2016 film)




I have been a fan of the Love O2O (other names: 微微一笑很倾城, Just One Smile Is Very Alluring) drama so I was waiting for the release of the movie starring Angelababy :)


Of course, the story was the same but in case you haven’t watched the 30-episode drama that just recently wrapped up in China, read on to know the plot and some thoughts on the film. Please note that I freely insert my thoughts between scenes, and in the case of this film, I might be also mentioning some comparisons with the drama. 

And also beware that this is a very lengthy recap as I have thoroughly enjoyed the film! Possibly also because I used to play online games before hahaha.

Let’s go!

Recap: K2 Episode 2




Another action-filled episode! The characters are all back in Korea this time and we get to see more of how Song Yun Ah and Cho Seong Ha’s relationship works. Looks like Yun Ah’s character is controlling or keeping Seong Ha's (the assemblyman) beside her by having Yoona (his daughter) as her other hostage.

I like Yun Ah’s cold and calculating character who I doubt is only driven by her love for her husband and Seong Ha’s couldn’t-care-less attitude towards his wife but a soft-spoken demeanor when talking about his daughter.

Anyway, let’s get right to it!

Recap: K2 Episode 1



I’ve been waiting for this drama for weeks since I am a fan of Yoona and I missed seeing Ji Chang Wook on the small screen. He had a Chinese television drama recently but I wasn’t able to catch it (Is that still airing? I’m not sure). 

I really admire Yoona’s acting in this drama—seems like she’s matured a bit from her sappy crying chops in Love Rain and Cinderella Man so I’m looking forward to more episodes! Ji Chang Wook sure worked hard in this episode with all the stunts he’s done and his great (GASP!) bod serves as a delish fan service to entice us girls to stay tune.

Overall, this episode laid down the backdrop for our characters and introduced us to their lives and how fate will bring all of them together for an action-packed and possibly political drama with Yoona being an illegitimate daughter of a presidential candidate.
