Hello bloggy and Zombies out there!
I know it’s so outdated to talk about Drama of 2016. (where have you been nci hello?). But my fingers are itching to write about it anyway. 2016 was a hella hectic year in every aspects, be it my life comedy-drama or Korean Drama, thank God i survived :).
I’ve gotten questions about Korean Drama and Netflix i watched and some ask my recommendation. My answer for everyone who loves thriller is The-Forever-Intriguing Signal of tvN. If you’re asking for Sageuk, i’ll recommend Taejong’s Six Flying Dragon of SBS. Those two and Black Mirror pretty much sums up 2016.
- Signal is tvN’s time-bendy cop thriller. The main cast are Jo Jin-woong ahjussi, Kim Hye-soo, and Lee Je-hoon. It’s a drama that filled with desperate voice of a righteous cop detective, Lee Jae-Han (JJW) over the transmission of walkie-talkie in parallel time with a young (handsome&cute :p) cop, Park Hae-young (LJH). Kim Hye-soo is a detective with fate entangled with the two detectives from the past and present. A premise that a lil’ bit similar with Frequency (2000), but as you dive further into the drama, you’ll find a real life murder and serial killer stories that actually happened in South Korea.
- Six Flying Dragons, it’s a story about six people (and friends) who’s sick of Goryeo and tried to change the dynasty then establish the Joseon Dynasty. It decipher the ideological and political conflict between Yi Bang-woon (YAI) and Jung Do-jeon (KMM). The main cast are Yoo Ah-in, Kim Myung-min, Shin Se-kyung, Byun Yo-han, Yoon Kyu-sang, and Chun Ho-jin.
- I’m going to emphasize the final episode of Black Mirror Season 3 because that is da bomb. Yuhuuu! Hated in The Nation is about a murder mystery that happened in Britain. It perfectly depict the true human nature trough the technology and the ugly side of social media. It shows how the internet has enabled and accelerated public opinion and judgment…..in a bad way (the only way it can be helped is to rebuilt the system wholly, optimistic me think that internet is still a young baby so we can systemically change it). In scientific side, the cutie auto-Bees are frightening but beautiful. Low-key it’s an awful story of psycho programmers who has been rejected by his love interest. Overall it’s an entertaining and thoughtful series.
I lost my interest halfway of watching Mr. Robots Season 2. I don’t know why maybe just the spark has long gone? Dunno. Rami is still cute, though. I’m going to review Mrs. Cabby and Holmes later (it’s 2017, anyway).
So many real life drama that happened in 2016. Makjang ones like Brexit or US presidential election left me an open question about how actually the humanity works in real life. Another ones like terror in Europe big cities, Mosul, Rohingnya, refugee crisis, and many more.
Pilkada in every corner of Indonesia left a divided opinion from the citizen, especially Pilkada DKI Jakarta (for the second round everyone fighting!^^). Actually it’s not a comically absurd drama because, yeah, it’s Indonesia. Nothing is absurd in here, it’s kind of sad. Criticism and hateful comment are a different essence but many don’t even know the difference and their limit (kalo kata bapak saya, orang-orang jadi ngablu dan unsensible, soalnya nggak semua bisa diatasnamakan kebebasan berpendapat). On a side note, Kabupaten Bekasi is almost going to have a singer and concert producer as a Wabup (Gandi tweeted many concerned tweets about it HAHAHAHA).
I’m having many internal discussion with my self about humanity nowadays. Kata bapak wajar kok begitu, namanya manusia. Yang penting jangan lupa ibadah sama berbagi kebaikan. Oke sekian dari nci buat hari ini. Wish you all a bright day!^^
