The King 2Hearts: First Impressions

After the disappointment that was The Moon that Embraces the Sun (which I stopped watching after dunno what episode, with the intention of resuming in the near future, hopefully), I pretty much lost interest in current dramas and was more in the mood for old series. But I think I've found a new drama crack for 2012 which is The King 2Hearts (what's with the title?) starring Lee Seung Gi (My Girlfriend is a Gumiho) and Ha Ji Won (Secret Garden). The drama has a rather imaginary setup, in which the South Korea's monarchy lives on until this very day, and a setting where the North and South's collaboration is not impossible, if ain't easy.

Yellow Handkerchief (2003)

Summary from wiki:
After being in a relationship with Yoon Ja-young (Lee Tae Ran) for nearly ten years, Lee Sang-min (Kim Ho Jin) dumps her for a richer woman. He plans to marry the president of his company, Jo Min-joo (Choo Sang Mi). Things go astray, though, when Lee finds out that Ja-young is pregnant.

Forgiving and waiting, Yoon Ja-young rises from her hard times to become a successful businesswoman. In the search for success, love is obstructed by greed until the f…

Knowing (2009)

Didn't really plan on watching TV tonight, figured there would be nothing interesting. But as I flipped through the channel, caught the beginning of a movie showing a scene with schoolchildren drawing pictures to be put into a time capsule of what they think the world would look like in the future. I wondered if it's anything worth sticking around for another two hours, so I quickly searched for the TV guide on the internet, learned the title, and found its synopsis on the web. It's a sci-fi kind of movie. Why not?
For synopsis and reviews, you can visit Rotten Tomatoes, my favorite site for some quick info on movies. It's basically about Nicholas Cage trying to save the world by decoding some numbers related to all major world disasters for the past 50 years. 
I enjoyed the movie, even though watching it alone was kind of freaky. Yeah, I am a scaredy cat. But at least it's not a ghost story. I could never watch ghost movies alone, especially if they get very graphic…
