What a great episode. I cried practically all the way through it, but it was a good cry. The satisfying kind. So many great conversations, and lots of great acting. And, as always, gorgeous cinematography. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Rumble Fish – “Smile Again.” [ zShare download ] [Audio clip: view full post to... More »

What a great episode. Funny but emotional, and lots of satisfying moments. Despite the tinge of sadness, it didn’t overshadow the story and didn’t drag the mood down into depressing.

Thankfully, things lightened up a bit this week! As much as I’m enjoying Flowers For My Life, last week was starting to bum me out because it was starting to get sad. At least we have a lot of sweet moments between Ho Sang and Hana here, and I think I’ve figured out a way... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 11

^^ The flowers Ran puts in her hair. Oh, and this episode tells me her name is actually Lan, not Ran (the Korean letter used doubles for both “l” and “r” and I don’t know Vietnamese to have guessed Lan). But I’ll stick to Ran for now to stay consistent. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY... More »
