Since weekends are best spent, cozying up on my couch and just binge-watching on various trending movies on Netflix. For this week, one series that popped up in my recommended items to watch is the Netflix Series called Love Alarm.
Since Netflix has been pushing for more authentic content as of late, this Hallyu drama seems to depict not just the usual sappy love triangle that high schoolers face but also the societal standards on beauty, social media and validating our self-worth from the engagements that we get online.
As I have read somewhere before that the likes and comments that we get in our socials seem like a dopamine booster which gives us more positive feelings, feelings of acceptance, and happiness that in a way our opinions are heard, acknowledged, and validated even though it’s just done in the form of likes, shares of comments in our feeds.
This drama has had me glued to my screen for the past 2 days now, avidly awaiting the next few episodes which will be released in their second season coming this March 12, 2021, on Netflix. I can’t wait to know who Jojo decides to fall in love with between the 2 leads. Would it be Lee Hye-young, who was silently admiring her from afar and chose to give way to his friend Hwang Sun-oh since they seemed to be getting along pretty well before. Or would it be her former flame Sun-Ho, who seems to have it all with his model-like looks, affluent family background, and aggressive take on love relying solely on the app to validate Jojo’s feelings for him.
To be honest, I would like for Jojo to either end up alone and discover herself and love herself to the fullest than come in between the 2 best friends who were like family to each other for the longest time. Being all self-sufficient isn’t that bad sometimes especially since whoever she would pick between the 2 guys would surely have an aftereffect as to how their relationship would be moving forward.
Of course, binge watching on this Netflix show would not be possible without me snacking onto something while watching this series, hence due to my lack of culinary skills in the kitchen. I decided to go for something simpler to snack on, something that would not require me to cook and bring out the frying pan.
I decided on just having the cheesy corn kernels as my snack and decided to eat corn kernels direct from its can. Since these can also serve as a go-to snack when you are fully focused on doing your task. In my case, this serves as an easy to prep snack while binge watching on Netflix or while working in the wee hours of the morning.
I decided to go for the Jolly Whole Kernel Corn to use in this snack. Here are more details about it.
