I Can’t Believe I Bought This DVD: Heart is…2 (2010)

I really shouldn’t be allowed near a video shop for the next six months. I knew I had an unhealthy fixation with a certain baby-faced actor but I didn’t think I’d actually end up buying, of all things, Heart is…2. I don’t know how it happened. One minute I was browsing DVDs, the next thing I knew I was handing over money and walking out of the shop with said movie.

I have nothing left to say about myself.

A couple of things to note:

  • If you’re watching Heart is…2 for Song Joong-ki, just know that he isn’t the main star – he appears in 30% of the movie at best. There’s a reason why Dal-i (the dog that plays Maumi) was the highest-paid performer after all.
  • Don’t be fooled by the poster. This entire movie is about a dog outsmarting two bumbling idiots. To be sure, Dal-i more than earns her paycheck and some of the scenes are quite sweet but Heart is…2 is hardly riveting stuff. I’m not saying this just because SJK plays the part of the scenery here. The plot is really the stuff that cotton candy is made of.
  • This movie is strictly for children under seven and rabid animal lovers.
  • I want my money back. If you absolutely have to watch this movie, take it from me – watch it online.

Crack of the Week: Running Man Ep. 26, but first…

I wasn’t too excited when I read about the new Kim Joon drama Serious Crime Squad on Dramabeans. Don’t know most of the actors and I’m not really a fan of cop procedurals. So I was going to give it a miss until I saw this:

OMG, Song Ji-hyo is going to be in it? She’s been absent from the drama scene for the past four years, working mainly on entertainment programmes and most recently Running Man. (more…)
