Along With The Gods: The Two Worlds – Korean Movie 2017 [Eng Sub]


The first time I knew about this movie is January 31st. Then I searched it on the cinema in my city in case it is still showing. I got my hope high to see it is still showing in other city but unfortunately the cinemas in my city didn’t air the movie for long. When I emailed them about it, they said they could organized the screening if I have large groups to fill the theater. How can I? I just wanted to watch this movie alone. So I could only wish for some websites to upload this movie to watch at home.

My wish was granted. On February 14th, I didn’t need to wait for long, a website has uploaded the movie. I watched the movie in the morning to noon of February 15th. I really wanted to watch this movie, Why? First, it’s because the genre, Fantasy, Action, Drama. I red the reviews on several websites and it mentioned about the stunning CG effects and a strong story. These are all we could need for a movie with that genres. Not to mention the strong casts have been known for their strong acting performances. I also read that this movie surpassed 10 Million viewers in South Korea alone in short amount of time. But although that’s great as a premise, I don’t really consider box office record as something that assure the quality of a movie.

So what about this movie that attracts so many viewers?

First, the story.

Story of the death of an ordinary fireman named Ja-hong (Cha Tae-hyun). Gang-rim (Ha Jung-woo), the head grim reaper, Haewonmaek (Ju Ji-hoon), and Dukchoon (Kim Hyang-gi) are assigned as public defenders to escort Ja-hong in the afterlife and represent him in 7 trials in 49 days to find out how Ja-hong lived his life and where he ought to spend the rest of eternity, heaven, hell, or granted for reincarnation.

The story is based on a webtoon by Joo Ho-min, Along With the Gods.

I was curious about the concept of 49 days after death in Korea. The first time I heard about it was through the drama 49 Days. And along the way, I watched several dramas nudged on the topic of the afterworld in Korean myth. But none really based the whole story in the afterworld. This is another reason I was so looking forward to this movie.

Before discussing the movie further, just watch the movie first here

I wanted to dwell further on the story of the movie. But because it is a recent movie which is first released in South Korea in December 20th, 2017, it’s not even two months old. So surely there are many who haven’t watched. I think I will stop here first. Then I will add more about the movie in a few days or weeks as to not spoil the story for those who haven’t watched.

Happy watching!

Now it’s time to discuss the movie.

It’s been a little over a month since I posted this and it gained over 1800 views. It might not seem plenty but for a blog like mine which rarely get views over a hundred it was quite much. Now I assume people have already watched this movie, I want to start reviewing it.

The concept of the afterworld is what attracting me to the movie so I start with that. In Korea, people believe in the concept of reincarnation, that if you live good live you will get the chance to reincarnate. This movie also mention about 7 types of hell and heaven. It’s quite similar in Islam there is a concept of 7 level of heaven and 7 level of hell. But there is never such thing as reincarnation, because the afterworld is described as our last home for eternity. While the world is actually just a test where our live spent there is short. The 7 types of hell or heaven in Korean myth have separate trials while in Islam, the trial is just one and it’s like another phase before decision on which level of hell or heaven someone is to enter based on their life’s deeds.


DBSK – Love in the Ice (Japanese Version) with English Lyrics



Love in The Ice (Japanese Version) English Meaning



It’s not your fault those hands are cold
Clinging onto the wounds of the past
Afraid to love someone
Turning your back against
The true meaning of the story

The heart that is hugged
Slowly melts
Like Ice

To be loved by someone
By anyone
It makes life shine
Like this
If it was me
I would make your heart once again
Warm with undying love

Fate’s play
Even though it makes
Your heart ache
When the tears end
A ray of light
Descends from the darkness
We can grasp it

We can feel
The fierce painful touch
Of a person’s warmth

Sorrow and loneliness
That every person endures
Searching for
A refuge to mend
Yes, for you that place is here
Don’t worry, don’t falter anymore
I will protect you

Because it is a love
(My love)
As beautiful
As it is miserable
(Don’t be afraid)
This beautiful
(Let you know my mind)
Beautiful time
(You know)
It’s ephemeral
(Let you know my love)

To be loved by someone
By anyone
It makes life shine
Like this
If it was me
I would make your heart once again
Warm with undying love

Seo Seo Galbi, Jakarta

Address: Ruko Crown Golf blok A no 31, RT6/RW2, Pantai Indah Kapuk, Kamal Muara, RT.6/RW.2, Kamal Muara, Penjaringan, Kota Jkt Utara, Daerah Khusus Ibukota Jakarta 14460, Indonesia
What I ordered : Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap, Mango Juice
I came here first asking whether the meals served is halal and one of the waitress said that beef and soups here are halal but pork is not. I usually not eat unless they have halal written on the menue but I decided to trust her and eat here. Bismillah. She showed me where to sit and give the menu.

I wanted to try Korean BBQ but thinking how big the portion will be and whether I have to grill it myself and kinda worried how the taste will become if I cook it myself (like I see Koreans in TV) so I decided to taste something ready cooked and ordered Dol Sot Bi Bim Bab. I didn’t know that the waitress grilled the BBQ for us, I should’ve tried the BBQ then.

What I like here is that they put a bottle of cold ocha (taste like a light tea) for free so I can refill as much as I want (I drink water a lot). Then they put 6 different banchan (side dishes) for free: panjeon (vegetable pancake), sweet potatoes, kimchi, salted cucumber, pickled raddish, and one green vegetable (I don’t know what it is called). I like panjeon the most.

I really appreciated they told me when to break my fasting as there is no adzan in PIK. And I can hear the lady told them to give me banchan fast so I can eat it first while waiting for my order.

Not long after (the service is quite fast), the mango juice and Bi Bim Bab came. And miyuku soup (Sup rumput laut in indonesian) as a complementary dish (A birthday here would be great). They give the sauce to mix with Bibimbap separately. It was served on stoned pot so it was sizzling hot for quite a while. I like it because if not, usually the meal would cool off fast and if we take a while to eat, we end up eating cold dish. Overall the taste is quite fine. At the end they give an ice cream as dessert (free again).

As the entertainment they have SBS live on TV broadcasting the kpop music performances.

For the generousity, service, and price I give it 5 stars. This is the most generous restaurant I ever been. And value for money is excellent.


For the taste I give it 4 stars. There is room for improvement.

My first suggestion would be to put a logo of halal in certain dishes which are really halal (whether the beef which is imported is really halal is questionable for me). I know pork is not halal but other dishes could be not halal if they are cooked with the same pan used to cook pork. If logo halal is written, it could gave muslim guests a peace of mind. As the largest community in Indonesia, it would be great to target the muslim consumers also especially because the hallyu wave is spreading much.

Secondly, it also would be great if this place could accomodate single guest. For example by making small portion choice on each of the menu. Even Bibimbap portion is too big for me (I forced myself to eat more but ended up too full to finish the meal). I would also want to try the Beef BBQ if there is small portion (but then again am worried about halal as the grilled pan is the same for pork).

Overall, I had a good time here.

The Advocate: A Missing Body – Korean Movie 2015 [Eng Sub]


At first, I just wanted to watch investigation movie, but was not so expectant since I didn’t quite like A Hard Day, the main actor’s previous movie. But this movie is a gem. The story is solid and nothing foolish, combined with strong acting by the actors and a plot twist so it made none of the scene felt boring or useless. I recommend this movie.


Cast :

Lee Sun-kyun as Byeon Ho-sung

Kim Go-eun as Jin Sun-min

Im Won-hee as Office manager Park

Jang Hyun-sung as Moon Ji-hoon


Summary :

Byeon Ho-sung is a hotshot lawyer at a big law firm; with a nearly 100% win rate, his life motto is “Winning is justice, and I am the winner.” After Byeon wins a lawsuit for a large conglomerate pharmaceutical company, its chairman Moon Ji-hoon asks him to defend Moon’s chauffeur Kim Jeong-hwan, who is suspected to have murdered a female college student named Han Min-jeong. A pool of blood was found at the crime scene where Kim was apprehended, but a body has not been found and there are no witnesses.

Kim insists that he and the victim were dating, but passionate rookie prosecutor Jin Sun-min believes that he was stalking Han. Just when Byeon is close to successfully contradicting Jin’s claims and winning the case as he always does, his client abruptly confesses in court on the last day of the trial that he killed Han. Furious at his humiliation and even accused of tampering with evidence, Byeon uncharacteristically embarks on a search for the truth and teams up with Jin. But as he digs deeper, Byeon begins to uncover clues that may link the case back to Moon.

My Annoying Brother – Korean Movie 2016 [Eng Sub]


This movie is unexpectedly good. It is one of my recommendation for 2016 Korean Movie. Since I didn’t read review or synopsis of the movie beforehand, I have no set image of what the movie will be like, I only make a guess. I thought this will be about quarrel among brothers filled with humor, but on the contrary it is filled with serious issues, psychologically and emotionally. This movie reminds us of the meaning of a family and what it feels like to have one. It is a heartwarming movie and it is one of the movies that leaved me with a good impression. I’m thankful for the writer who made a great story and the actors who have pour their emotions into the characters.


Cast :

Jo Jung-suk as Doo-shik

Do Kyung-soo as Doo-young

Park Shin-hye as Lee Soo-hyun


Summary :

National Judo athlete Doo-young (Do Kyung-soo) damages his optic nerves during an international event and loses his sight permanently.

To Doo-young, who lost his parents in an accident as a teenager and had to fend for himself since then, the news of Doo-sik coming back home is an extra stress to deal with. He’s barely adjusting to the fact that he is now blind for the rest of his life but now he has to deal with swindler of a brother. Although hesitant at first, Doo-young slowly eases up to his older brother, who gradually takes charge and helps him adjust to his disability. Just when the two brothers are starting to make amends, Doo-sik finds out that he’s in the final stage of terminal cancer. He has only a short time to say farewell to his brother and help him win gold at Rio Paralympics, which will secure his future.

I love Korean Variety Shows because they are very entertaining. Some made me laugh out loud to see the casts’ behaviors. The concepts are varied: talk show, game show, cooking show, or performance (dance, music, or gag).

One thing that I admire from them is how the people work so hard to show the best.
