The Fugitive: Plan B.

The Fugitive Plan B cast

After IRIS’ intense and tragic end, I didn’t have to wait long for the next Korean Drama as The Fugitive: Plan B aired right on it’s heels. It was such a welcome comic relief and so different from IRIS. None of that political, espionage stuff and the war between the North and South Korea.
This is  about a Private Investigator and his client whose entire family had been killed due to gold discovered and hidden during the Korean  war. The client is in search of her family’s murderer and the reasons why. The underlying issues are the villain’s son’s political aspirations as the next president and his need to take care of all the people who know about the gold so the son’s aspirations come to fruition.
I loved it because I found it quite funny and it starred Bi Rain (Private Investigator) who won an MTV Award for Ninja Assassin. It is neither sappy nor sob story-ish and Na-young Lee (client) is a fearless female. No swooning and simpering for her. She gives as good as she gets without having a hair out of place. The scene where she’s dishing out kicks in the sand absolutely blew my mind.
Bi Rain looked so young a times but he is good (Koreans have such fantastic genes). I never watched Ninja Assassin so seeing him in this made me believe. Also, it is the second time I see David Henney in a Korean series, first was in My Lovely Samsoon where he was quite young. In this; he is very grown up and HOT! I guess even hotter now, considering this is a 2008 serial.
The good thing about Korean series is; they are 22 episodes long if not periodical dramas and they pack quite a lot in the hour and half duration per episode. They are so well written and the plot never drags.
I absolutely love this song from the series and naturally, I downloaded it. I hope y’all like it too.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
