Age of Youth K-Drama Review

Age of Youth is so near and dear to my stomach right now, but it’s such a peculiar drama that I’ve had a hard time figuring out what to say about it. It’s realistic, changeable, heartfelt and one of best available female-centric dramas I’ve seen in a while.


Age of Youth follows five very different young women–responsible workaholic Yoon Jin Myung( Han Ye Ri ), self-confident seductress Kang Yi Na( Ryu Hwa Young ), cutesy daughter Jung Ye Eun( Han Seung Yeon ), reticent freshman Yoo Eun Jae( Park Hye Soo ), and outgoing life of the party Song Ji Won( Park Eun Bin ). As the 5 maidens share a residence, they proliferate together and share their sufferings and prevail.


Love it with a big passion

I roughly missed this establish because it aired without much fanfare and initial reports complained of a slow premiere, but fortunately Outside Seoul ‘s rave reviews reassured me to pick it up, and I was immediately secured.

This show is something special. At first sight, it’s about all of the stereotypical beings you converge at college, but then you peel back the beds was discovered that each and every person has more going on than encounters the eye. I desire courages who feel real, and when I watched these women, I felt like I was watching a( slightly more dramatic) edition of our friend and college roommates.( For the record, I was the Eun Jae of our group–insanely reticent and touchy and necessitating more outgoing roommates to learn me how to not be a lunatic and go on dates. Coco was unquestionably our Ye Eun, but don’t tell her I said that ….)


Because I went into this series with so few info about it, I was more than halfway through before I discovered that it came from the same scribe as White Christmas , but once I knew that, everything met so much better impression. The series unquestionably isn’t afraid to be grim, and the latter half turned often darker than I envisioned. Like White Christmas, the series pushes frontiers and hypothesis about its courages, and yet somehow it doesn’t obliterate the soft, sweetened flavor of the first few chapters. I felt like the darker points were handled well, and the narrative “ve had enough” cute or odd times interwoven throughout the heavier duties to preserve a realistic sense of balance.

If I have one complaint, it’s that this is the one series I please could have been longer. There was a little boy threads throughout the series that I wanted to follow in more depth, but I got the sense that 12 chapters simply didn’t give the writer enough time to follow up on all of them.

SPOILERVILLE: Ending discussion

Instead of going into too much degree about the establish as a whole, I thought it would be easier to give thoughts on each character’s tale.

Jin Myung: Where did I even get this numerous sobbings to cry over this person? Is there a year-end awarding for realizing my stomach hurt most? Because Jin Myung would prevail it in a heartbeat. Oh wait, perhaps she did make, and her prize was Caring Dreamboat Chef, my own personal pick of the accessible male results( yeah, large-scale catch that he beat out Vengeful Ahjussi and Aggressive Douchebag Extraordinaire ). Can we have a sequel just about her and Supportive Dreamboat Chef seeing one another and smiling shyly in the sprinkle?

 Fill the sequel with cute umbrella produce placement, and the establish pays for itself!


Superb bowling stood the West Indies to overcome the absence of various leading player as they trounce Sri Lanka by 62 pass in the second one-day international in Harare on Wednesday.

After managing simply 227 all out with the bat, Ashley Nurse and Shannon Gabriel grabbed three wickets apiece and captain Jason Holder picked up two as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 165 inside 44 overs.

As a result the West Indies too picked up a bonus moment, putting them height on five points with Sri Lanka, who hit Zimbabwe in Monday’s series opener in the triangular series.

” It’s good to start off with a earn in a short tournament ,” articulated Holder at Harare athletics club.

” We fell short of our batting target but made up for it in the field, where I thought we were outstanding.

” It’s good to start passing happenings around, and hopefully we can get some uniformity starting and start ripening .”

Shorn of their biggest superstars, including batsman Darren Bravo after he was sent home for notes obligated on Twitter about West Indies Cricket Board president Dave Cameron, the West Indians “ve lost my” toss and were asked to bat first in seam-friendly conditions.


They soon saw themselves on the back paw, with Johnson Charles concluding third “mens and” fellow opener Kraigg Brathwaite run out by a direct hit from Nuwan Kulasekara.

Although their next three partnerships all contacted more than 40 , none were able to set up a significant total as Evin Lewis was caught behind off Sachith Pathirana’s offspin for 27, and debutant Shai Hope was bowled for 47 by Asela Gunaratne.

Kulasekara then had top scorer Jonathan Carter catch for 57 at deep square-leg, and once Rovman Powell’s entertaining cameo had been halted on 44 by Nuwan Pradeep, Kulasekara accomplished another run-out and grabbed a second wicket with the ball.

Despite the challenging maladies, the West Indian total seemed short-lived until a luminous first sorcery from Holder relented the wickets of Dhananjaya de Silva and Kusal Mendis, with a Charles direct hit helping to reduce the Sri Lankans to 16 for three.

” The bowlers did a great job to keep them to 227, but the batsmen didn’t turn up today ,” articulated Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga.

” We lost three early wickets and never recovered- we are only couldn’t formation partnership agreements .”

It was Nurse who prevented any meaningful convalescence in the middle of the innings, dismissing Tharanga and Gunaratne just as they were concluding their hoofs at the crease, before having top scorer Pathirana caught in the deep as he threatened to producing Sri Lanka back into the game.

With Gabriel cleaning up the fanny, the West Indies assured their first win outside of the Caribbean since March 2015.

The series will now move to Bulawayo, where Zimbabwe will take on the West Indies on Saturday


How the Charlotte Hornets find themselves top of the Eastern Conference

Published 19.14 pm 10/11/ 2016

Seven games into the new NBA season and we are starting to see blueprints unfolding. In the west, the L.A. Clippers are looking very, very strong, the Golden State Warriors are picturing the signs of being the’ super team’ we all expect them to be and the New Orleans Pelicans are bad- very bad.

In the East, the Cleveland Cavaliers are now going the team to beat, the Atlanta Hawks are their customary prototype of coherence and the Philadelphia 76 ers search placed for another lottery picking in the 2017 enlist. But one anomaly stays out when you look at the early tolerates; the Charlotte Hornets sit atop of the conference with a 6-1 record.

Yes, that’s the same Hornets who lost Al Jefferson and Jeremy Lin in the summer and were tipped to be around the 39 acquires mark arrive the end of the season.

So how have the Hornets managed to lead the east meeting in the early weeks? Well, often of it is down to their resists. Their one loss went to the Boston Celtics, who have themselves been one of “the worlds largest” underwhelming squads in the opening exchanges, but their victories have come against a number of the league’s strugglers.

Milwaukee, Miami, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Indiana and Utah have amassed a collective enter of 18-27, but the Hornets is simply thumped what is in front of them and have certainly grew the level expectation.


Their upcoming flee of fixtures; visits to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks sandwiched between dwelling encounters with the Toronto Raptors and Atlanta Hawks has certainly test their ability to compete with the stronger squads in the NBA.

But, given their start with a supposedly weaker listing, it’s only fair to be acknowledged that it has been done. Losing Jefferson, who put up 12 stations and 6.4 comebacks per competition, and Lin- 11.7 stations a night off the bench- has been a jolt, but a few members of their listing have stepped up to the plate.


Kemba Walker, at 23.9 stations, is averaging three more per competition than last-place season and has made on a more prominent persona in the offence with his usage rating rising by 3.8% to 30.5%. There have also been helpful tallying contributions from a number of role players.

Nicolas Batum’s outlay has descended somewhat- from 14.9 to 12.7- but Cody Zeller is lowering nearly three more points a night, Frank Kaminsky is up from 7.5 to 11.4 and Spencer Hawes has rushed from 6 to 9.3. So, in truth, it’s pretty simple; a combination of an easy-going start and improved tallying from a number of actors has sidled the Hornets into early meeting supremacy.


Their prolonged success residues on the shoulders of Walker, but filming a career-high field goal percentage and dishing out over five assistances per competition, he seems be prepared to take on the responsibility.
