The first episode of Signal (the Japanese remake of the Korean drama) is out which means it is time for another Original vs. Remake where I compare and contrast the two versions to see who tells the story better. Let me help you decide whether it is worth watching the newer version or if you should just settle in for a rewatch of the original. Continue reading
Oh man, y’all — Signal was an incredible bit of storytelling. Thank you for choosing that drama for me! Fingers crossed for a season 2, right? Let’s chat about what I loved and why I think it DEFINITELY deserves a second season.
I 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. Continue reading
I was hoping for an upbeat question today. The dramagods chose otherwise. Come join us as we discuss today’s question……. Beware! There are spoilers ahead. Continue reading
I think the majority of The Fangirls actually started checking out Kpop due to hearing our favorite actors sing on OSTs. So we thought it would be a fun topic to chat about. Is your favorite OST on our list? If not, let us know in the comments since we are always happy to check out new music. Continue reading
I am sad to say this will be my last post on a show I have come to love, and the characters that live within this world. Our three heroes do not give up even when the credits roll, and neither does this writer. They’ve taken us on a ride from day one and it doesn’t seem to stop until the last minute. Or… maybe it never stop as long as there’s another transmission. Continue reading
Every week I assume that they can not wring any more emotions from me, and every week I am proven wrong. The story of Signal and all its time changing characters are going down swinging to the end. Because when it comes down to it, none of them are the type to let sleeping dogs lie. So join me in my last recap of the drama (Drama Geek will be covering the finale). Continue reading
We get some seriously satisfying backstory in this episode that I feel like I am about to explode with awesome plot feelz! How can a drama be so good week after week and have no down swings? It is as mysterious as the person who is behind all the evil doings and crooked cops in the precinct.
We finally get to the two main cold cases, and unsurprisingly they’re connected. Which leads me to believe that the walkie talkie might be smarter than we think. This weekend’s episode broke the double digit mark in ratings with episode 11 coming in at 10.456% and episode 12 at 10.065%. I am so happy for this show. It totally deserves these ratings and all the love it’s getting. A tight suspenseful story being acted and directed fantastically. What more could we ask for? Well, maybe that all our heroes end up in 2015 alive, but I’ll take this for now.
I am not sure if I am excited or dismayed that we are finally getting to the final cold cases that need to be solved. Sure I am thrilled to finally get to the meat and potatoes of the plot. But that also means that we are getting closer to the end which will leave me devastated. It is always hell saying goodbye to a truly well-done drama. But time waits for no one and we must move on with yet another great episode. So join me as we finally get to delve into Hae Young’s tragic backstory. Continue reading
