Don’t Forget Omran; Nor Aylan

Tweet by @khalidalbaih on 18 August 2016 saying

An image of injured boy from Syria draws attention currently. He just lost almost everything, but he didn’t cry; instead, he was sitting in an orange seat in the back of an ambulance, maybe wondering which one of fault that made him deserves to go through such thing.

And again, in this very small note, I realized how that picture has drown me into a memory. In the past time, when i was 12, I used to have a friend from Syria. Facebook connects people, right? She was my friend even before Syria turned into a hell. I just wanted to let you know that at first, i always kept in touch with her and worried about everything. There, she always said that she’s fine. Syria doesn’t hurt her that much. Time passes and suddenly she doesn’t use Facebook as much; there’s no green button next to her name on my chat list. I claimed something happen, and in short time, I left Facebook just like the other people. But time heals, and time rebuild. Today i tried my best to get my Facebook back–I accidentally forgot the password after 3 years of not using it.

I was in God’s blessing today, that i could open my Facebook again and i checked how she’s been doing… She’s doing okay. She lives in Turkey now just like the other Syrian refugees. I hope that she’ll feel like home, wherever she goes. And my prays goes for Syria, as always.

2 & 1. Angry Mom vs Signal.

Rating: 4.8

Do i regret? GOD NO

Thrill you yet? MY STOMACH HURTS BECAUSE I BECAME SO NERVOUS THAT I THINK I’VE HAD ANXIETY

Uuugh it’s so hard to choose between these two masterpiece. They both are equally complete each other. Let me explain how they do that:

Angry mom: A comedy drama that contains more WTF moments than any detective dramas that i’ve written before, and slightly more shocking than all of the dramas i’ve watched, but in the same way as Signal. Really good to watch for teenager, or any organization who fight bullying. This is the only drama i rated as Educating. What makes it better is that you could laugh hardly at some episodes that you’ll never forget. Involves love story of course–you can guess it. But the lovebirds is not weird or make you wanna puke. It’s just normal. The ending is perfect, tho. It’s not disappointing. On some episodes you’re gonna cry like a baby, the way Titanic has made you cry 19 years ago.

Signal: No words could describe this amazing drama! Longtime film actress are used in order to make this drama perfect, that if you take Signal and Remember side by side, you’d change your mind and give a 3 for Remember actors. That sounds rude, but this epic drama is unbeatable! When i first watch it, i thought it was a movie. Didn’t think K-Drama could be this great. Weird, ha? And this drama doesn’t involves WTF moments only, but OMFGWTFIH?! A.K.A oh my fucking god what the fuck is happening. And with no question, this one’s involves romance too–that shockingly, written in my opinion as beautiful. The ending is good tho, but it left some of your question unanswered. And that’s the only prons that make it equally has the same rating w/ Angry Mom. If only they take like 4 mins more for to complete the drama to the end, i’d give this drama slightly 5 stars with no doubt.

(But if you ask me which one of these two you’d have to watch first, i’d give a signal for you to watch Signal. Because this one’s more epic and thrilling like, alot)

Everyone who have completely watched both dramas till the last episodes know, that it’s not only about thrilling. I can say that these two is the only dramas that made me sad when it ends, not because the story ends but because the story has build a living character on my own imagination. It plays your heart, you know, the emotional range is there. When you’re watching angry mom especially. Either you fall in love with one of Oh Ah Ran’s classmates or conjunctly become very sad when they almost graduate.

These two dramas deserves Korean Grammy, if that ever exists.

3. Ghost (A.K.A Phantom)

Rating: 4.3

Do i regret? Nope at all!

Thrill you yet? Of course!

You have to do whatever it takes to watch this drama, climb any mountain you have and swim across the Nile river even. The drama contains many WTF moments in all its 20 WTF episodes.  Detective-themed drama is everywhere, but a detective whose the enemy is not a killer, but yet a briliant genius hacker is something else. This sucessfully took this drama to another level. It involves romance, a bit, only a tiny lil bit like an atom (Not this tiny, tbh) that you wouldn’t even notice it at first. Intrigued? Please be.

4. City Hunter

Rating: 3.75/5

Do i regret? Nope at all.

Thrill you yet? A bit.

Lee Min Hooooo! He is the only reason i watched the drama. His face is so pure, you know. Like you’ll straightly know that an angel had escape from heaven to Korea.

Okay, okay, forgive me. Let’s talk about the drama. But that actor is seriously works if you are in need of eye candy for your poor lil heart. LOL.

If you’re a fan of drama that involves kick-ass scene alot, this one is for you. Sometimes it gets a little bit too much, tho. I couldn’t see much blood, hope that explains. And yep of course Korean is all about romance, so this little thing involves romance too–in which i hate–but it doesn’t bother me as much as SC.

I’d give a dislike for the end, unfortunately. They should’ve create a better ending, but i’m not some loser that would likely become a spoiler, so yeah just it.

5. Remember (A.K.A War of the Son)

kdrama remember

Rating: 3.5/5

Do i regret? Not really.

Thrill you yet? Nope.

This drama is actually deserves an atleast- 3.75-star from my own rating if it’s not showing much of a romance scene. And what makes it goes even lower than 3.75 is because for some reasons, the actor seems like they don’t know what they’re doing.  They are supposed to make the Drama alive, right? It’s not like i have a good acting talent, but this is another thing–this is a Drama, on TV screen. I’d give the actors, like almost all of them, a 8 out of 10 for their talent.

But the pros is, and this is what matter the most, the scenario script and the story line will make your heart beats faster. It’s shocking, unpredictable, and that’s what the 3.5 talks for. (Seriously, 3.5 is good, man! I’d give Hannah Montana 2 stars only!)
