Did you know that in years gone by, music was widely considered an intellectual pursuit? Music was meant to edify; to challenge you; to make you think. Artists wrote poetry set to music. They would strive to inspire their audiences with the beauty of their words.
Karie the Maknae: So Kdrama Jen said I should watch a thing. I trusted her and watched the thing. And now we will banter about it while she makes my head spin with all the Korean names.
Kdrama Jen: Hey, I am simply trying to educate our Maknae. It’s not my fault they happened to cast both Kim So Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun in the same drama. But, seriously. What did you think? Moon Embracing the Sun is an absolute must-watch because you get to see so many of the current big name stars when they were just young foals galloping around dramaland.
So when we started throwing around the idea of a kpop series of posts, I was conflicted about what I wanted to write about. There are so many great groups that could use a Fangirl Stalking. Not to mention, all the ones that I feel don’t get enough love and attention. Instead, I decided to do what I do best and share some classic MVs that I consider to be iconic. Hopefully, this will convince my readers to try some of their other music and create some new fans. So, in no specific order, I give to you my favorite, and what I consider iconic, Male Kpop MVs.

You know what’s more fun than watching a drama? Watching it with friends! I propose we have a drama discussion club. It would be like a book club, but online. You’re in charge of your own finger foods and drinks, by the way. 😉 Continue reading
Have you dreamed of aimlessly wandering through Jeju tangerine groves or visiting the Seaes Resort (featured in Boys Over Flowers)? Did Warm and Cozy make you want to visit Jeju (even if it was just to beat some sense into that arrogant boy)? If so, then now is your chance! Kdrama Jen would like to invite you along. Please comment with your favorite Jeju drama locations and Kdrama Jen (and maybe Jennie Bennett too) will visit them for you! We even have a fun contest in mind, so be sure to comment for your chance to live vicariously and maybe even win something!
Yes, I am 100% a kdrama addict. I watch them, obsess about the actors and actresses, blog about them, even dream about them. You get the picture. But it doesn’t mean I don’t see through the rosy glasses I wore when I first started watching. Just like American TV, Kdramas have their flaws but we love them anyway. Today’s blog is not really about those flaws in general, it’s more about a certain mental side effect I found myself having. It made me wonder if anyone else suffers from it as well. Continue reading
As Drama Geek posted last week, the teasers for Manhole have been intriguing, even if they don’t reveal a whole lot about the plot. I’m tempted by the imagery alone. I’ve never seen this guy before (thus the reason I’m the maknae!), but I really, REALLY want to know why he’s dancing in the middle of a busy street in his pajamas, and now coming out of a manhole in a sharp suit. Continue reading
Hello there show that I fell in love with! Plot twists! A bad guy that makes me shiver! Oh so yummy kisses! (These two need an award for most believably natural yet still steamy kisses). We are winding down and just when you thought the rest of the show would be filled with fluff they make sure we remember that even though a criminal is arrested doesn’t mean there isn’t a ton of work to be done to convict him of the everything he is guilty of. Especially when he have amnesia that equals possible mental instability. Continue reading
I am just going to put it all out there. I find scary nutjob cults and their leaders terrifying. Which of course means I am all ready to be scared as well as entertained with upcoming OcN drama Save Me. Heck, the teasers alone are already enough to make me a tad bit paranoid. Continue reading
