You know what always sounds good in theory? Chocolate lava cakes. All that rich chocolate goodness, and then the molten chocolate in the middle to enjoy when the cake runs out. But every time I order one of them, I get to the end of the cake and remember that I don’t have that much of a sweet tooth and it’s a burden to finish the syrup. But I ordered it, so by golly, I will finish it!!
YOU GUYS!! YOU GUYS!! Siwon is back from his military service and he’s been cast in a drama for October! I might be a little excited about this. I LOVED him in She Was Pretty. Now he’s going to be the LEAD. *faints a little*
Y’know, there’s a reason that Kmuse’s name is Kmuse. She really is my inspiration when it comes to picking dramas. I’ll whine that I have time to kill between finishing a series and waiting for the poll to close and she ALWAYS has the perfect solution. She’s also happy to promote Seo In Guk to new fans anytime, anywhere. And for very good reason. Because of her, I’m now a huge fan myself.
No Sandra Bullock in this one, folks, but it looks FASCINATING. And as a newly-minted Lee Jong Suk fan, I am very interested in this drama! Continue reading
I had a terrible time starting this series, y’all. I was raised to say “please” and “thank you” on a regular basis, and I’m raising my children in Texas, so we add “ma’am” and “sir” when needed. The female lead of I Hear Your Voice, Jang Hye Sung, was NOT raised that way and she got on my nerves at the beginning. There was a point when she finally said “thank you” to someone and I actually said, OUT LOUD, “How did those words taste coming out of your mouth?” Made my husband laugh and he was in a different room!
KBS2 has a new drama coming out this September, called Girls’ Generation 1979. That Korean title is gonna make it show up in some interesting web searches…. Continue reading
The saga continues! In a move that some saw coming, but I didn’t, Kocowa has partnered with Viki to offer their new content at a higher monthly price. Which kind of makes me wonder why Kocowa was created in the first place. Come join me as I chat about the new plan and what that means for viewers.
When it comes to K-entertainment, I really am such a newbie. I’ve only been watching since January of this year, so I’ve had to learn a lot of things about a completely new culture very quickly, because I hate missing out on the jokes.
Okay, it’s also because I want to understand the culture, but I really, really hate missing jokes. Continue reading
All right, maknae here. Please take care of me and don’t mock me too ruthlessly for the following confession: Once upon a time, I wrote an academic paper defending Bella Swan from Twilight as a strong character. True story! And I still stand by that paper because I think that the character of the distressed damsel has gotten picked on long enough.
Please note, I said distressed damsel, NOT damsel in distress. There’s a huge difference, one that I’d like to demonstrate using Ha Won and Hye Ji from Cinderella and Four Knights.
