NETFLIX To-Watch February 2020

The entire January I was bingeing on Netflix back to back. Mainly because I took a long leave for Chinese New Year and there's nothing much to do at home. Here are some of the shows that I think you might like to explore this month.

On the top of my list has gotta be Crash Landing On You. If you follow me on Instagram (if you don't then you should), you'll know that I'm such a fangirl of Hyun Bin. His previous dramas didn't really catch my attention, but in this one, he's the dream oppa of every girl. That aside, the drama is the highest rating drama in 2019-2020. It's about a South Korean girl accidentally landed in North Korea and it became a mission of Captain Ri to bring her back home. In the process, they fell in love and things get complicated. The drama is still ongoing on Netflix. I'm so eager to wait for the new episodes every weekend at midnight. I'd watch the drama all over again because I was busy reading the subtitle.

The next to watch is the Ghost Bride. This is a local production and it is ah-may-zing! The storyline is about a woman looking for a ghost bride for her deceased son. The bride struggled between living in the world of dead and coming back into the real world. The CG of this movie is so good. Also, do your part to support local talent. Even the costumes are designed by local designers. Two thumbs up for this drama.

Here's a documentary. As you know, I love watching documentaries. Don't F**k with Cats is about a video went viral on cat torture. The netizens form a group to find out who the anonymous culprit was. It became a game of cat and mouse and it slowly lead to a murder of an Asian boy. This documentary is about psychology, crime and how powerful the internet is.

I've been a fan of Sabrina. It is a series of drama about a teenage witch. This is a new season and of course I had to continue the trail. In this season, Sabrina crowned herself as the Queen of Hell. If you have not watched it, start from the first season, I'm pretty sure you'll be hooked in no time.

If you love fashion, you'll love Next in Fashion. It is all about talent - no dramas and pure talent. The contestants in the shows are some-what established in the fashion industry but not-yet a household name. This is a cut throat competition where they are given very short time to complete their designs and switch partners. I'm rooting on Minju, her imagination translate into her designs.

The Night on Earth is my bedtime Netflix show where I watch it with my baby. It serves as a good lullaby as the narrating is very smooth. Most importantly, you can see all the activities of animals via high tech infrared and temperature camera. 

Miss Americana is a Taylor Swift docu-biography. I'm not a Taylor Swift fan, but I do give her the credit for working so hard. Despite being constantly picked on, she stands on her ground and do what she does best. It is an inspirational documentary regardless if you're a Taytay's fan or not. 

Gwyneth Paltrow has an online portal called the goop. The Goop Lab is a life documentary on the projects her team working on. The first episode "The Healing Trip" hits right back home because I could resonate with the emotions that the participants went through. Then the second episode was about cold bath and how it becomes a method for mental relaxation. Come to third episode about self-pleassure, it becomes awkward. 

This documentary came out the right time. It is depressing to watch, but it is informative. After watching it, it gives a little insight on how medicines/vaccines are deployed in times of pandemic.
