Friday, Friday, Getting down on Friday~ Fun! Fun!

Today is the best day of the week (besides Saturday), its Friday! For overworked college students such as myself this is a great day because I get to come home, unwind, and binge watch Dramafever! Every Friday I typically watch at least one movie with my sister. We usually pick a theme and find different movies that share the theme. After watching 2 we then like compare the movies and pick the best one!

Since this is a fun Friday tradition I have decided to invite all you guys to join! Now I understand that we can’t all watch it on the same screen, or the same room, but we can watch and share. Even if you don’t want to join in and share, at least watch the movies. This could a great way for you to find new Asian films and discover more things you love!

Today’s theme is Secret Agents! Yeah, Baby!

Lee Shan and Ayo are ex-Interpol agents who are now bounty hunters, chasing fugitives for cash rewards. When the two of them are framed for a hotel-bombing, they join hands with a legendary bounty hunter named Cat. Together they work to clear their names and discover who is behind these attacks. (Taken from Dramanice.eu)

This movie is purely for laughs! The cast create a colorful variety of characters that seem to parody typical spy movies. The romance was weak, and their were many plot holes, but the comedy in this film was genius. You will be left crying on the floor because this movie is so funny!

Note- Don’t watch this movie if you want to see a great action film, with a detailed plot. This is the exact opposite!   

Secretly Greatly

Secretly Greatly Korean Movie Poster A group of spies called the 5446 Corps were trained by North Korean elite special forces since their youth, ostensibly towards the lofty goal of unifying Korea. They are ambitiously dispatched to South Korea, where each disguises himself as a fool, an aspiring singer, and a high school student. Passing boring time without receiving any orders from the North, they gradually get used to life as ordinary neighbors in a small town until one day, their mundane lives are turned upside down when a “secret and great” mission is suddenly assigned to them.

Kim Soo Hyun was the main reason I picked up this film, and no, he did not disappoint! This film started off as a great comedy,action, and suspenseful story filled with pretty boys. I loved the plot, and unlike Bounty Hunters, the story was more developed. The characters had more meaning behind their actions, and the movie wasn’t as lighthearted. There is a major plot twist that many people may not like, but I still recommend this movie. There are so many humerus moments that make this movie worth the watch! 

Hope you enjoy this weeks recommendations!
