56. Kdrama Review: Shut Up Family (닥치고 패밀리)

Hello everyone! So in this post I would like to give my 2 cents on a kdrama that I recently finished. It's not the latest drama, fyi. This will be my first time giving a review to a kdrama after watching dozens of kdrama and became a fan of it. This is my personal opinion.

The kdrama I'm talking about is "Shut Up Family" or later known as "Family". It's a daily sitcom by KBS 2TV aired from August 2012 until February 2013 with 120 episodes + 6 special episodes.

Official Poster cr: AsianWiki

WHAT? 120+6 EPISODES? You read that right! But you know what, throughout all 126 episodes I don't even get bored watching it. This drama is really really good you won't regret spending your whole day watching it. It took me almost a week to finish this drama. Well, it's a semester break and I had nothing better to do than watching kdrama the whole day. aha.

I won't really explain what's this drama all about because you can read more information about this drama here: AsianWiki or DramaWiki To put it in a sentence, this drama is about two families with totally different personalities and appearances, but they got married and live together under one roof. Hmm, might as well ready about the plot in the link about eh.

What's so good about this drama?
I must say this drama is full of emotions. Love? Yes. Hate? Yes. Friendship? Yes. Betrayal? Yes. Sacrification? Yes. Love-Hate? Yes. and much more, you name it. Afterall, it's about family which is really heartwarming. Eventhough this is a sitcom, this drama touches the reality in a natural way. They don't go overbroad with reality which helps viewers to understand this drama more. Plus, every single characters in this drama are just... I don't know how to say it but you will really fall in love with their characters. The trying-to-be-funny-but-still-funny dad, the nag mom, the unexpected-choding friendship, the love-hate relationship, the four-square-love-story, the lazy-ass-but-always-pretty sister, the ugly-but-cute sister, the top-student-with-no-friends sisters, the clean-freak-with-good-look guy, the too-nice-that-you'll-fall-in-love-with guy and the endless-curious little brother. Gosh, so many characters in this drama but you will never hate them. To add more, their acting & chemistry is really good that sometimes you might think this is not a drama, but a real family story.

However, there must be an OTP in a kdrama that keep people watching, isn't? I can't deny it because there's an OTP, no scratch that, OTPs that keep me watching this drama until the end. I ship BongJi Couple, SeoBong Couple and noona-dongsaeng couple.

BongJi Couple (ep 120)

I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE BONGJI COUPLE. I SHIP THEM SO HARD. OMG THEY'RE SO GOOD TOGETHER. (Too bad, Shim JiHo is married and also a father to a son) Ji Ho is a clean freak with OCD as shown in the screencap above but later fall in love with HuiBong the ugly girl nicknamed Herabongles because she's so strong and healthy. But I'm dissapointed with the character described to Yeol Hui Bong. Park Hee Bon who acted as Yeol Hui Bong is actually a goddess I must say. She is really pretty and she resembles Park Gyuri and Kim Tae Hee whose known to be one of the goddess in S. Korea.

Alright, back to the track, I ship this couple so hard that it makes me sad that this drama ended at 120 episodes. I wish this drama have more episodes so that I can watch more of their lovey-dovey scene. Btw, this couple released their duet song for special OST. It's a remake of the OST Part 2 by SunBee "You & I Together". Watch and listen to the song here I never know Shim Ji Ho can sings. His voice is deep and low but oh my, you will melt when you hear his part. Park Hee Bon on the other hand is not a surprise because she debuted as an idol before made into an actress.

SeoBong Couple (ep 104)
As for SeoBong Couple, they are new friends but they get attached that they always stick around. Their personality is also similar, with their choding or childish character. What I love about this couple is that they get attached at a really short time but it seems like they've known each other for life. I envy their friendship. They might fight today, but tomorrow you'll see them reconcile because they rely on each other and they don't have any other friends hahahaha. You will smile and laugh at every scene with them. They totally rock the hilarious character. To describe more about their character, U Bong (right) is a loser and Seo Jun (left) is a fool. Well, actually both of them are loser and fool LOL. In ep 104, SeoJun involved in accident which affected his brain system lol, and suddenly changed character. U Bong felt betrayed and sad that his one and only friend changed completely to another person. U Bong then hit Seo Jun's head with a book and SeoJun is back. I really like this episode. It's really funny.

Noona-Dongsaeng (Ubong & HuiBong)
What I love about this pair is that they always fight and quarrel but it's a way to show their love. Ubong always nitpicking on her sister, HuiBong, saying she's a rotten girl and ugly but he can't stand still if other people said the same thing. He's the only one who can call her sisters ugly and rotten girl. Awww~ Huibong towards her brother, she never lose. If he called her ugly, she kicks him, but she always care. This pair showed the love of siblings. Even though they always quarrel & fight, at the end, they just love each other.

Overall, if you are looking for kdrama with natural emotions that brings you to the reality, this is it. You must watch. You will not regret watching all 120 episodes. How I feel when I finished this drama? I'm not sure how to describe it but I feel so sad that this drama ended so early. They could make 200 episodes I will still watch it. I feel so sad to leave BongJi couple. I'm so gonna miss them. I feel attached to this drama and their characters. The day after I finished this drama, I visit all their possible SNS to stay up-to-date with them. Crazy, huh? XD

Where can you watch this drama?
I'm not sure but maybe you can watch it online either Viki or DramaFever. I download this drama with torrent from asiantorrents. If you are interested to download this drama, I guess the torrent is the best way to download. It takes up about 13GB for 120 episodes. In some episodes, they put some NG scenes at the end of the episodes. For additional special episodes, you can watch all 6 episodes of the special at DramaKBS Youtube.

This is all for my review. There's much more to say but I just don't know how to put it into words. This drama is really beautiful but I just can't describe it in details. If you are watching or watched or will watch, why don't you drop a comment below? Hehehe. I would love to hear from others.

54. Week 13

Next week is the Week 14 which means it's last week of 5th Semester. How time flies?! Serious talk, for every subject this semester, I don't really know what I learned. It's like there's zero input. Lecturers are being so...hmmm I won't say anything, but it's a great dissapointment this semester. I'm most afraid of the upcoming final exam. Can I do it? Can I score? *InsyaAllah* So many things happened this semester but the only thing remained in my memory, is of course the bonding time with my dear classmates BM111/5C. Every week in Eid month, we went to our T'ganu friends' house for open house and eat and talk and play and take pictures and yeahh I love every single moment of it. I can't imagine what will happen if we will move to a new campus next semester.

UiTM is such a...dissapointment at certain points. Yesterday they said we will move to a new campus, but the next day they said we won't but the next next day they said we will and this sh** "you will/not move to a new campus" is freaking me out. You know, some lecturers were forced to cancel our class to attend the meeting for the 'campus movement' for many times and they still have yet to finalize everything! Please do something quickly lah.

53. 5th Semester

9/6/2014. New semester begins and this will be my second last semester in Diploma in Business Studies. Well, nothing really changed except that my campus is now under major construction for Computer Science students. One by one, students are leaving the campus and we can see that this campus is starting to get quiet since there are only 3 batch left. The saddest part is, this semester could be our last semester at this campus which mean we might have to move other campus to give a way for CS students. Whatever it means, new place is not an excuse I believe. Whatever comes, it's actually a challenge for us. Talking about challenge, I was grouped in a male group for HR assignment. I'm the only girl with 4 of them are all boys. It'll be my first time in a male group and maybe working with them. I've never really work with them buy I can see that they've done such a great works for the past semesters. I will absolutely show them what I can do. Having an annoying person in their group, I'll show them I'm not weak and I can do better than they think. InsyaAllah. I hope everything will be fine.

8/6/2014. Today was college registration day. Finally, after 2 years straight I got the top bunk bed, I got the bottom bed this time weeeheeeeee! This was my first time for showing up so early at Dewan Utama for the registration. I was there sharp at 8.15 y'na! For the past 4 semesters I registered after Zohor but not this time. It's all because I mixed up my calendar that I thought the registration will be on the 7th which is SO NOT 7TH IT'S FREAKING 8TH!

52. klia2

Hello and good afternoon! So on this post I would like to share a bit about klia2 (yes it's klia2 not KLIA2) which about to open in 9th May 2014. Yesterday was the Open Day and everyone was invited to have a tour at klia2 and have a look around it, from the terminal to departure hall to arrival hall to gateaway and EVERYWHERE in klia2.

Excuse the ugliness of me in the photo above but just want to point out that I was at the 'gateaway' that is the shopping mall. Yes. I read in a news article saying that klia2 concept is shopping mall in an airport, or something like that. So, basically there are 3 Starbucks, huge Vincci, F.O.S, Gloria Jeans Coffee, The Loaf, Chatime and many more I can't remember. There are too many shops you don't want to come late if you have a flight. You'll stuck at the shops and lost your flight if you didn't come earlier. 

Boarding Pass for Tour in klia2

Waiting room in Domestic Departure Hall

The full tour yesterday has 11 checkpoints but I only found 5 out of 11 checkpoints. Probably because we were too busy taking pictures of the airport. Well, there was a 'Selfie Contest' and everyone was excited taking their selfies with the boarding pass.

Selfie of The Day

Our submission for the contest

 I was told the biggest airplane (airbus) can pass under the bridge. Isn't that cool? It's like the Tower Bridge in London.

Baggage claim area

I would say that klia2 is hella big and you must lalu the shops before you can enter the terminal. It's a strategy to let you buy something before you fly. And the carpark, the nearest carpark to the terminal is near the DCA tower.

51. Check On

So, it's April. The 4th month of 2014 and this is my second post. Sucks eh?

Just want to make a post, saying that my 4th semester just ended! YAYYYY! Tbh, I went through a lot of ups and downs this semester compared to previous semesters. What I afraid most is the result. I'm afraid that I might drop both of my GPA and CGPA. You know, I got around 3.9 in 2nd semester but then dropped at 3.7 in 3rd semester even though I was really confident in my 3rd semester that I will get better than previous semester. But Allah gave the best for me. I got 3.7 so that I will work harder to get back my 3.9. Maaaannn! This semester is really tough for me I'm not sure how I can grab my 3.9 again *insert rolling on the floor worrying emoji*

Toughest course this semester, is of course PR. I don't know but I can't 'eat' that course. The 'corporate-thingy' isn't my thing maybe. And the syllabus is crazy I tell'ya! With the sudden format change in the final exam, I'm sure most of the students in the Examination Hall cursed on the paper. To add to my frustration, my carry mark is really low compare to other courses and it was the lowest carry mark I ever get. Another thing, I failed the Quiz 1 and Test 1. I cried a lot when Madam Dae returned my paper. I felt sorry for her, like a lot. I'm sure she disappointed with me. I'm sorry Madam. I can't face you telling you this because I really do, feel sorry for giving such a bad result.

I really really hope that Allah will show a miracle for me. The only thing left now is keep hoping & tawakkal. I hope everything will be better, both my GPA and CGPA. Amin~ Please keep praying for me to get a better results for my 4th semester.

50. What is your word for 2014?

Before the clock ticks at 12 o'clock to mark 2nd January, Ayah asked me, "What is the word you'll live for this year?" I didn't expect for that question so I just replied with "Wo-word? Err... I don't know"
Ayah said his word for 2014 is "excellent" and he told me that you don't need "azam baru" because when it's about azam, everyone has it and they will mostly have their azam list covered a whole notebook. He said you'll need a word to live, only A WORD. Everything you do, you must remember that word.

So, I was thinking what kind of word should I pick. I'm blank. It was past 11 when Ayah asked me and yeah my brain stops working after 10 most of the time. I even thought that maybe I should open a dictionary and pick a nice word from it.
After a minute of thoughtful thinking, I decided to pick "SAVE" for my 2014.
Save means a lot. (or it could be 'secure' as my dad said)
Save money. Save energy. Save time. Save memory. Save knowledge. Save yourself. Save people etcetera

In term of save money, there are a lot to do. I want to because I want to travel, I want to study abroad, I want to tick off my wish list.

In term of save energy, I want to use less water (I take shower for like 40 minutes), I want to save MY energy - don't want to waste my energy on useless thought and thing.

And much more to list!

What's your word for 2014? Let's join the fun of living with a word. A word means thousands of thing, isn't?
