asian drama movie to watch during quarantine
Plenty of time during quarantine,and a side of working from home...i know sometimes we get pretty bored and there's not much to do to entertain ourselves unless binge watching dramas/ movie. For  me, I just unwind myself with some Rom-Com J-dorama / Asian Movie or youtube travelling vlogs as if  i'm on virtual tour, haha. So here's the drama list of what I watched so far during self quarantine time. - ( i'll be adding more the list once i got something nice to watch.)

This drama is all about friendzone .It's is must to watch If you've been a fan of old Taiwanese Drama : In Time with You - starring Ariel Lin and Bolin Chen. At first, I was hesitating to watch it because the original TW version was too good. I don't usually put high expectation on anything remake. But this one got me interested in just an episode. The outcome does not make the Taiwanese version washed away from my heart ,but create a different spark between the chemistry of two main lead.

They tried to keep character the name similar to the original drama. 'Chen You Qing - Yo' & 'Li Da Ren - Ren'. Personality wise imho, the character of female lead is more cheerful, and sanguine in IDLWYY , while in INTWY, she supposed to be more serious looking, fierce, and melancholic. I do like the two version of them but I'm more fond with the Chen You Qing in TW version. For the male lead... I cannot help more about it. Shirasu Jin such a boyfriend material here <3 I like how in this drama they shoot more details about the male lead true feelings. Like how he stole a glance over Yo,etc.

 I approved. These two is successful enough in creating their own kind of
'In Time With You' moment.

hikaru genji funny japanese drama to watch
Hikari Kun randomly sings a poem after sipping a glass of matcha 

This is the type of drama when you can burst into laughter on most of every scenes. The idea of putting time travel theme is somehow kind of common , remind me of an old k-drama : Queen Inheyon Man's. Yet, it's way more comedic. I like how Yudai Chiba portrayed the character very well. His acting was really hilarious ! Watching a funny drama like this during quarantine is such a stress relieve !

3. Heaven ? My Restaurant , My Life

She tells Kan that she is going to open a French restaurant soon and that "The staff needs originality. You will be a good serviceman."cr@dramalist
If it's not because of Ishihara Satomi, I wouldn't watch this kind of drama. Personally, the plot is rather simple and more like tv show than to be considered as drama. However ,It's enjoyable to watch when you're simply not want to think too much, feel to much and just kill time while munching your favorite snacks.

thai movie sentimental
thai movie good
Haven't really catch-up with any Thai Drama for a while ,but this one is surely one of the best thai movie I ever watch this year. My first impression from the poster was, I thought it was so emo to the point it only makes feel sad after watch it but I'm glad it's not. Sure ,it portrays some kind of sentimental -how to move on - scenes yet it more likely lead to self reflect. Kinda regret with the ending tho,If I were Jean, I wouldn't do that extreme but that was a personal choice ; everyone should ask themselves.. What are the important things you want to keep in life? 

Ps :I do think this is a satire movie of marie-kondo phenomenon lol and it was brilliant to bring that wave of life style into a "slice of life" movie.

my long awaited love story j movie watch

Another friendzone drama, (Although I never experienced this myself..*as long as I remember lol)  It was cliche and cheesy ,josei manga kind of movie but it can make me laugh and smile till the end. I guess it's all thanks to of the main lead , He was the same one who played in last year's outstanding drama  : Nagi's Long Vacation. Didn't like his character there tho, here in this movie he can switch into someone who's truly innocent and kind.
