Update/The Throne

I'm back! Did anyone miss me? XD

I arrived back in Fukuoka today, after a really, really quick trip home for my cousin's wedding. I've actually got a lot to blog about (although I'm not sure if I should be blogging about my cousin's wedding. Maybe I'll just talk about the other things in Singapore), so you can expect more than a few posts this week(:

Today though, is just a quick update to let you know that I'm alive. And to talk about a movie that I watched on the plane.

The Throne (titled "Sado" in Korean) is a movie about a king who locks his son in a box and leaves him to die. And yes, it's based on a true story. At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, and was more than a little doubtful about whether it could hold my attention for two hours, but... I was proven wrong on both counts.

The movie starts with the prince being locked in the box, and as each day passes, more of the past is revealed. To be honest, I saw the king as a villain, because of the way he treated the prince. But google says that it's a little different. That does explain the ending though, because I thought the king's reaction was a little unrealistic.

Oh, but I cried like a baby throughout the whole ending. No spoilers, but I thought it was really touching.

And because of that, I had puffy eyes when I alighted from the plane. It was an overnight flight, so I'm currently still very tired. I'll begin recapping about Singapore tomorrow(:
