New Asian Goodies on Netflix
I’ve been out sick for the past 2-3 weeks. It wasn’t fun. I’m finally on the upswing at long last! And just in time! Netflix has added a new movie that I definitely want to check out. This Korean movie is called Miss Granny and stars Shim Eun Kyung who recently had the starring role in Korean drama Tomorrow’s Cantabile. The movie is about an elderly widow who learns she is to be put in a home for the elderly. She ends up at a photograph studio and comes out as a young woman in her 20s! The scenes look so cute. B1A4 leader Jin Young stars in this movie…as the grandson to our younger granny…I think.
Doesn’t it look cute? Also added is Once Upon a Time in Shanghai starring Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, Philip Ng, Andy On, and Chan Koon-Tai. The movie follows a young martial artist who becomes embroiled in a gang war in Shanghai.
New in the drama department is the long Chinese drama The Legend of Zhen Huan (Netflix has the first six episodes under Empresses in the Palace. I recommend checking out Heisui’s My Drama Tea for episode reviews and pretty pictures from that drama.
