Silent Separation aka My Sunshine Ep 1-4 Recap and First Impressions

Silent Separation aka My Sunshine aka 何以笙箫默 ep 1-4 Recap and First Impressions

I first found out about this drama when someone asks me to help translate the drama on viki. I went into this drama not knowing what the full synopsis is-just something about a lovers beings separated due to some misunderstanding but later meets again but struggles to get back together due to different obstacles.

This drama is more of a romantic melodrama with inner struggle between leads due to misunderstandings.

It is based on a novel By Gu Man’s Silent Separation which is also the same writer as the person who wrote Shan Shan Comes To Eat which was turned into a drama and I had breezed through. Continue reading

I started watching this drama because I am still entranced by Sound of the Desert and can’t get it out of my mind and I still thirsting for some kind of romance that takes place back in the historical time period. While I was searching for historical dramas I found that this one was already making a third season so it had to be good and decided to watch this one.

Kim Yoo Jung Casted in Angry Mom

kim hee sun kim yoo jung

Kim Yoo Jung, Kim Hee Sun and Lizzy are confirmed for the new drama Angry Mom which will be broadcasted on MBC after Kill Me, Heal Me on Wed and Thurs beginning in March.

Angry Mom is described as an upbeat and heartwarming show where the mom, played by Kim Hee Sun, goes back to high school as an undercover student to help her daughter, played by Yoo Jung, who is being bullied at school. Lizzy will play one of the bullies.

I am currently watching Golden Rainbow where Yoo Jung plays the younger self of the main protagonist and when she grows up, the character is played by Uee. I ended up suffering from withdrawal syndrome ever since she was gone and  watched Love Cell, a cute mobile drama, which was a hit, just to see her but I couldn’t get into it since each episode was so short. However I am glad that she is finally casted in a drama where her character will last throughout the entire course of the drama and not be replaced after the character grows up.

The drama won an award in an open scriptwriting competition last year and is being directed of PD Choi Byung Gil who has worked on When a Man Loves (which I hated) and East of Eden (which is on my ( to be watched list).

Aren’t you glad to finally see her as a main character that won’t be replaced in the midst of the drama?

I am definitely looking out for this when it gets released.
