Don’t Leave the Maknae Unattended: School 2013

Hi-dee-ho, neighbors! It is I, your lovable Maknae, back from another solo journey into KDramaland. Did I survive? I did! And I came away with a greater appreciation for Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin’s acting skills. Let’s talk about School 2013, shall we?

Overwhelmed With Thanks: The Drama Edition

I am thankful I figured out a spot to put this into the post. And Maknae & Jen said it couldn’t be done. Bwhahahaha

We thought it would be fun to do a tiny post to express all the things we are thankful for this year at Dramas With A Side of Kimchi.  So take a moment from basting those turkeys and dodging those relatives (possibly in a closet to check out your favorite dramas) and join us in giving thanks.

Hey you guys! Our dear Kmuse isn’t feeling well, so I, the intrepid Maknae, have taken over this week’s While You Were Sleeping recaps. Mwahahahaha!

ALSO, I noticed something in my last post. You know that picture of Jae Chan threatening his brother with “Wolverine” and I said something about sibling torture? That whole story arc is a contrast in sibling relationships! There’s the fun-loving, caring one between Jae Chan and Seung Won, and the deadly one between Kang Dae Hee and his brother. Can we just say excellent writing? Because, seriously, that is some excellent writing. I applaud the writer.
