I predict that Investigation Couple/Partners for Justice will be one of those polarizing dramas that people will either love or hate. Come see what Kmuse and Karie the Maknae have to say about the first 4 episodes (but not really 4 episodes, because they’re the one-episode-split-into-two format that’s trendy right now. This doesn’t bug me. Not at all. I have no idea why you would think that.)
I have been waiting for Lee Joon Gi to pick a drama that really allows him to showcase his multi-faceted acting talents and his ability to create stellar action scenes. Read on to discover my first impressions and five reasons you should be watching!
I’m warning you before I do the review that I’ve watched the Japanese version and I ADORED that OTP (One True Pairing). That being said, I can see the cuteness of this version already, and I’m willing to give it a fair shot. I will try to keep my comparisons to a minimum, but since they followed the original plot so closely, it will be hard for me to not at least mention the Japanese version.
OH MY GOSH! I am so addicted to this drama it is not even funny. The Bromance, the mystery, the political intrigue. There is so much chemistry it is flying off the screen and making my heart pitter patter like crazy.

I have never watched a drama with a leading lady who is running a drone company, and I was intrigued by the idea of such a geeky revenge plot. Read on to hear why I keep watching despite some cheesiness. Continue reading
Gather ’round, y’all, and I’ll tell you a little tale from grad school. As I was earning my master’s degree in English, I had to read many, many books that people thought were the best form of art. Some were great — excellent characters, good humor, moments of lightness, and a well-resolved ending. Some, often extolled as high art or literary fiction, were about the worst of people making the worst of choices and brooding about it for pages in lyrically moody settings.
Guess which kind I hated? If you said literary fiction, or lit fic for short, you can anoint yourself with a gold star. So, read on and see what lit fic and My Mister have in common, and what Kmuse and I think from the first few episodes we watched.
