So I just started watching the new and popular Taiwanese drama In a Good Way. It's quite different from the other Taiwanese shows I've seen, and I quite like it. Just like Answer Me series, In a Good Way is set in the 90s, though it focuses much less on the pop culture references. It does have a pretty good soundtrack, tho.
But what I love are the opening and ending MVs for the show. I love the way they're filmed, I love the interactions between the characters, and I love the songs "Good Morning Hard City" by Adrian Fu for the opening and "Obviously Love You" by Freya Lin for the ending. Both videos are really awesome and I had to share them with you.
It is rare that a movie which I have anticipated and hoped to be good actually proves to be good. Usually, or at least in my experience, great expectations lead to poor results. However, Bleak Night proved to be one of those rare instances where I got what I asked for: a story that wasn't just sad - a story that would be moving. And in that test, Bleak Night passed with flying colours.
After his estranged son Ki Tae's (Lee Je Hoon) tragic death, Ki Tae's father (Jo Sung Ha), filled with guilt and regret, sets to find out what happened to his son. He finds a picture of Ki Tae and his friends Dong Yoon (Seo Jun Young) and Baek Hee (Park Jung Min) and decides to contact the boys in the hopes of hearing some answers. Reluctantly, Baek Hee agrees to meet but there is something he isn't telling. What happened between the friends? Will the father finally learn the cause for his son's death? Disclaimer: I apologize in advance if this review might retell the movie in a some parts, but because I really wanted to discuss certain aspects more thoroughly I had to explain the scenes beforehand. Also, because of that, this turned out to be a pretty spoilery review so...
