Kmuse’s Musings: Dramathoning in the Fall

But just as the season is unique and has distinctive attributes, so do the dramas I choose to rewatch. Come join me as I discuss my favorite shows to dramathon in the fall. Continue reading

Kmuse’s Musings: My Drama Inspired Book List

Every now and then I like to glance away from my TV screen and rejoin the real world. Usually by reading a book in a coffee shop surrounded by the smell of coffee and a nice cup of peppermint tea sitting in front of me. What? I am not going to do something crazy like go to a party or anything. That kind of thing is exhausting. But despite my stepping away from on-screen drama, the drama often follows me into my reading choices. Which inspired me to share my favorite Asian themed books and hopefully give you new options to explore when you are forced away from your dramas. Continue reading

Kmuse’s Musings: Attack of the Sequels

.;a1a.png

I am so conflicted.  Some of my favorite dramas are coming out with sequels and my interest is conflicted.  On one point, I love that my favorite shows were so good that they deserve a 2nd look.  The problem is that often, sequals are made just to get more money and not necessarily to promote talented storytelling.  So lets take a moment to check out what is coming up and my feelings for each project.

Kmuse’s Musings: A Morning of Kpop Comebacks

.;a1a2s.pngI started the morning off like any other.  I dumped the kids at school at an ungodly hour (what?  No one should be forced to wake up before 9.) and shuffled back into the house debating on whether I should just fall back into bed.  Instead, I opened up my twitter account and was overwhelmed with visions of a blond Roy Kim in various bright colored screenshots and now here I am.  Inspired to discuss, not just one, but three Kpop comebacks.  So join me as I chat about my thoughts regarding the newest MV’s by Roy Kim, Twice, and VIXX.

Kmuse’s Musings: How To Survive While Your Bias Is Gone For 2 Years of Military Service

.;a1a1We all knew this day was coming.  As of March 28th 2017, Seo In Guk officially entered the mandatory South Korean military for two very long years.  I imagine I am not the only Heartrider, sitting at my computer devastated at the thought that my bias will not be in new dramas, music videos, or any other form of media entertainment for 24 months.  So I thought it would be useful to write out in words how I am going to survive this horrible time in my life.

Kmuse’s Musings: These are a few of my favorite things…

It’s the holidays.  Which means it is time to reflect on the blessings life has given us, spend time with family, and for the random kaddict out there it means binge watching a drama.  So as I sit next to the tree blogging away before having to play Santa for the kids, I thought it would be fun to just do a random post (emphasis on the random) on some of my favorite things.  Continue reading

Kmuse’s Musings: It’s a Winter Wonderland

fotorcreatedI am officially stuck in my house. For those of you who are unaware, if you are in Portland and it is snowing it means you stay home and wait out the storm.  The roads are horrible and the drivers on the aforementioned roads are worse.  So what do I do during my forced hibernation?  Write a post about my favorite winter drama moments of course.  Just because I choose to not frolic in the snow doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy watching it on my TV.
