Notice for Review Requests

I have been receiving some review requests over the past few months. However, I have been quite busy with my personal and school life to continue actively reviewing novels. I do read every request that has been sent but I apologize in advance that I do not reply to them all. I have accumulated a pile I have yet to go through and I try to work with what I have instead rather than taking on more.

If I do take on a request, I will forewarn that it may take a couple of months before I get around to it.

In the meantime, Stop, Drop, and Read! serves as an archive book review blog. Once in awhile when I have time, a new review will go up.

Watching on Wednesday: Baby and I

Title: Baby and I
Type: Movie
Age Group: Teens +
Release Year: 2008
My Rating: 5/5

Han Joon-so (Jang Geun-suk) is a very attractive eighteen years old delinquent. His parents are devastated to know that he will never change his ways and decide to one day run away! Well, more like stay out of town for awhile and tell him through a home made video that his attitude has chased them away. Strange as it is, Joon-so does not mind so much and continues on with his daily life.

While he goes grocery shopping, he finds a baby boy in his cart with a note saying that he is the father! Shocked, he goes around asking all the previous girls he was with if the child, Woo-ram (Moon Mason), belongs to any of them. Not only did he not find the mother but he got quite a bit of pounding on top of it.

Unsure of what to do, Joon-so attempts to abandon the baby. He fails so everytime. With no one to take care of Woo-ram, he brings him to school and causes an uproar. As time passes, the inevitable happens between the young father and the toddler.

I simply LOVE this movie!! When my friend introduced it to me, the first thing I did was gawked at Jang Geun-suk. He plays a prince in my favourite historical Korean drama called Hong Gil Dong and I was surprised how young he looked. When I searched him up, I found out he is only 21 years old instead of 26-ish (like his character in Hong Gil Dong). I love him in this role and is looking forward to the future movies and dramas he will be in! Moon is also the cutest baby I've seen on TV! He's a baby model over in South Korea and I just want to pinch his cheeks whenever he comes on the screen! Haha, I wonder how he'll grow up to look like.

Moving away from the actors, the movie is very comical and adorable! If you are a Korean drama addict, this is something you should overlook! I forced my cousin to watch it until she did and she loves it as much as I do! Even if you do not watch Asian dramas, you should definitely try this movie!
