OK…. I will admit that my inner fangirl is a little excited that Jang Geun Suk is returning to my TV. I know that it has been years since his last true hit…but my You’re Beautiful love goes way back. So, until I know whether this is going to be a hit or a miss, I will remain optimistic and excited. Continue reading
Every once in a while there is that odd drama that none of The Fangirls got around to watching when it aired. Queen of Mystery (Mystery Queen) is just such a drama. Unexpectedly, the talented promotions for Queen of Mystery 2 had us wondering if we had missed something special. So come join us as we share our thoughts on Queen of Mystery and maybe you will discover it is a show you should be checking out as well. Continue reading
Japanese Title: Final Fantasy XIV: Hikari no Otousan
With this title you would naturally think that it is a drama heavily about playing video games, but it is not. It is about a son using the game to reconnect to his uncommunicative father, and although there are scenes that take place inside the game, the main story is about their family in real life. It is in fact, based on a true story that Ichigeki Kakusatsu related on his blog between 2014 and 2016, and later wrote up in a book that he titled Hikari no Otousan.
I wanted a happily ever after for each character in Prison Playbook. I imagined a joyful reunion at the end where everyone, including Doctor Ko, would be waving from the stands as Je Hyeok pitched a perfect game. That would have been a storybook ending, but this show has proven again and again that providing perfect closure and resolution all around is not what it is designed to do. It just would not feel genuine. Read on to hear my last impressions and unfiltered thoughts… Continue reading

I am a huge Ariel Lin fan from way back when I watched my first ever Chinese drama, Prince of Lan Ling in 2013. So, for that reason alone, I will give this drama a chance. The fact that I really need some romance in my drama queue is secondary. Continue reading
Way back before I discovered kdramas, I was a bright-eyed, anime watching, certified geek. And one of the first anime’s that I watched was Bleach. Which means when I saw these trailers my inner fangirl went ballistic. Continue reading
This will be my last recap on this show and I can’t believe we have to say goodbye. I do want everyone out of prison and happily living their lives, but I just don’t want to say goodbye!!
Sometimes I have a hard time letting go of a drama that I am really fond of. In this case, I keep thinking about Just Between Lovers, a quietly endearing story of two people who find each other after having endured the same tragic incident in their past. There is something that I noticed all through the series and finally decided to take a good look at. I am talking about the coats. Seriously, for a woman who seems to be not very well off, she has a LOT of coats, and they are mostly really nice wool coats. Who else noticed it? Come with me and take a look at this! How many do you think there are?
Wow. I can’t believe I’m almost to the end of this drama! And yet I can believe it, because I keep wanting to push play at the end of each episode to find out just what happens–that’s how I am at the end of the really good ones. It’s been an interesting exercise to see Je Hyeok grow during his time in prison, and to see who he truly is. I hope the final episode gives us a glimpse of where he ends up in the future, because I’ve grown very fond of this single-minded man who is far smarter than he acts.
