Fascination with Modern Japanese houses

You might have already seen these type of houses. Despite having a small floor space, they are able to design a stylish and spacious looking house. From what I often see on magazines or on dramas/movies, Japanese people love nature. They love wood, plants and the view of the sky.

Toda House
I especially love the Montblanc house, I dreamed of having this kind of house too. Though I don't think it would work in our climate ( ̄へ ̄) the sun is too hot and it rains quite heavily. Hmn then again Japan is a rainy country too plus they have winter. I wonder how the owners close down their roof?!

Kdrama: What's Up!

I only watched this drama because of Daesung. I didn't know a single actor so I was feeling a bit unsure if I'm going to enjoy this. Going towards the first 3 episodes, each actor is perfect for their roles. I ended up loving the other characters more than I loved Daesung's character.

A drama revolving around music and the romance between students enrolled in the theatrical department of a university.

I'm not gonna go into a detailed review because (one) I suck at organizing my thoughts (two) it's better to watch on your own else I'll spoil the storyline.

It's 20 episodes long. The storyline had a strong beginning but dragged on a bit towards the middle. I honestly don't like watching teenage angst anymore. Maybe because I'm older now so I'm over that stage. So for me the middle part was boring & annoying. I just want them to deal with their problem and show me the juicy parts. I also didn't like how one of the most bubbly characters became gloomy in the end. That could be part of her character development though. After all the drama was about each character's journey towards finding themselves. That by the end of the series they're all changed people.

The ending left a lot of things unresolved. Which was ok in the sense that if they tied each character's story in a neat little bow it would feel quite rushed and much more annoying. So this unfinished feeling is all because they didn't resolve the other character's story towards the middle while they were dragging that other angst-y storyline. ( ̄~ ̄;)

Anyway the series is over now, after so much complaining, I still love this drama and highly recommend it! (^-^)v

Could there be a 2nd season? ¯\(ಠ_ಠ)/¯ That is still unsure :3
