My hand itched to watch any DVD or shows the last few days (another attempt of procrastination by the “infamous procrastinator” when facing stress)
Hence, when I saw this VCD box set of "Autumn in my heart" lying around my place and thought I’ll give it a go just for one episode. (I don't really watch Korean dramas). My friend told me this drama pioneered the Korean dramas craz in Malaysia.... (aiya I am so out-dated!) :p
Unfortunately, it was slow paced (as usual for Korean romantic dramas) and I happily watch it in forward mode. After one episode, another continued and another continued till I watched half the entire series till the morning prayers sounded. :P
Well, as slow as it is, (with all the non-stop crying by both actresses and actors) I thought the storyline should have beautifully stopped after the 5/6 episode already. Somehow, they delay and complicate the plot to make it go round with non-stop hurt and disappointment (plus more crying).
The plot is basically of being in love but not being able to be together plus a dash of one-sided love. Of course, they had to introduced the tragedy – life-threatening disease to dramatized the story further.
As slow-moving the show was, I still got hooked to find out how the storyline would end. (plus Ms Procrastinator’s desperate attempt to prolong the inevitable)
In the end, I have another 5 more episodes to forward my way true and later scold myself silly for wasting so many hours on watching something not beneficial to myself.
And that’s why I call myself the infamous procrastinator in the face of stress… arghhh!!
