Being in prison isn’t as fun as this show has made it seem the last few episodes. But today we get real when it comes to being locked up with criminals. With the loss of Dr. Ko (I’m still in mourning about that development) there is an empty spot in the cell and some genius decides to transfer Crony in there. Yes, the guy who stabbed Je Hyeok in the shoulder and almost ruined his baseball career. Continue reading

Who’s not a robot? It depends on who you’re talking to. Meet Aji-3, she definitely is a robot! I was excited when I’m Not a Robot premiered, and to see a Korean drama with a robot in it, and now she has become my girl-crush. I am a fan of science fiction, and you don’t find much of that in dramas. Knowing that our story is largely about someone who is NOT a robot, let’s see how Aji-3 fares in a Kdrama!

This resident maknae is taking on episode 2 of Prison Playbook, so I thought I’d take a second to introduce myself. I am the maknae because I just started watching kdramas a year ago and writing for the blog about six months ago. In real life, I’m the oldest of three, six months older than my husband, and the mother of four children. Being the maknae in ANYTHING has never been on my radar! I can attest to Kmuse’s mad recommendation skillz — she has rarely steered me wrong. 😀 If you want to know anything else about me, click that handy “Karie the Maknae” label just under the banner. It’s got a headshot and everything. Continue reading
