Guys, we’ve been sentenced to 16 episodes (which equals way more than 16 hours) of hard drama time, but we’re all in this together. This episode we move from the correction facility and into our permanent cell. We meet our cellmates, which comes with trying to figure out if there is anyone we can trust. Thankfully, we have Je Hyeok and Joon Ho to help us through the murky waters. Continue reading
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

Karie the Maknae: When you hang out with the same set of kdrama friends online, it’s inevitable that you’ll end up watching the same thing so that you can know what your friends are referring to. And perhaps those friends will try to convince you with terms like “grasslands hottie” or “Han Jiang’s sexy feet” (in this humble writer’s opinion, there is no such thing as sexy feet) or “shaman hottie”. LOL. I swear we watch dramas for the stories. Really!
Join Kdrama Jen, me, and our repartee guest Drama Geek as we talk about coming to terms with a drama not being right for you. Continue reading
If you blink while watching the teaser you might miss the amazing line up this drama has to offer. Seriously, I have not seen so many casting announcements for one series. Continue reading
