A Fangirl Movie Review: The Princess and the Matchmaker

This fangirl loves to travel and I’m always looking for shows I can download onto my electronic devices and watch while I’m in no man’s land aka on the plane. I discovered The Princess and the Matchmaker last month and meant to watch it with my fellow fangirls during our time in L.A. for the BTS concert, but we got all distracted by other visual offerings. Last weekend I was headed out of town and I remembered that I had this movie to watch. My best friend, who isn’t into kdramas, watched this one on the plane with me and she laughed while I took notes. I tried to keep my review pretty spoiler free, but beware, I may have slipped one in and not noticed. Continue reading

Snackfever: Korean snacks and more!

I am a snacker, I love to snack while I’m watching my dramas. The problem is, I want to eat what I see on the screen or at least something similar. When you live in an area where there isn’t an Asian market, that’s a real problem. So while I was watching Let’s Eat a few years back, I went on the internet to see what kind of food I could order online. I discovered Snackfever and decided to give them a try.  Three years later, I’m still excited to see the box at my door. I got my box this week and thought I’d share this treat with our readers.

First Teaser for Ms. Ma: Nemesis

Autumn is a time for relaxing and catching up on a good mystery.  Something about this time of year is just perfect for sitting back and being a couch detective. My fellow fangirls know I am obsessed with Agatha Christie. I even own a The Body in the Library tee shirt. So when a Korean version of an Agatha Christie mystery popped up on the list, of course, I got very excited. After all, it’s combining two of my favorite things kdramas, and Agatha Christie stories.

First Teaser for The Beauty Within

 

I need my heart to calm down, Lee Min Ki is about to be back on my screen with a new drama! We have the first teaser for The Beauty Within, and obviously, I’m pretty excited about this.

Synopsis from AsianWiki: Han Se-Kye (Seo Hyun-Jin) is a top actress. She is known as a troublemaker and the object of many rumors. Her life is a mystery, but, in reality, she suffers from an unusual phenomenon. At a certain point every month, her appearance changes to a different person. She lives one week out of every month with a different appearance. Han Se-Kye meets Seo Do-Jae (Lee Min-Ki). Seo Do-Jae is an executive at an airline company. He seems perfect with an attractive appearance and possessing smarts, but he suffers from an inability to recognize faces. He hides this disability and tries hard to memorize people by their habits and mannerisms. The only person’s face that he is able to recognize is Han Se-Kye. By meeting her, his life changes.

This drama is based on a movie with the same name. I really liked the movie and I’m interested to see how they handle this in a longer format. Are you excited for this drama to start? Mark your calendars for September 17th, I’ve already marked mine!

Until Next Time,

Two New Teasers for The Smile Has Left Your Eyes

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve been in a deep drama drought.

The fangirls will be recapping this one, which I’m sure you already guessed since Kmuse’s love for Seo In Guk is legendary. Continue reading

Back to School: Saying Goodbye to My Summer Drama Marathon

It’s August, and for me, that means it’s Back to School time.

Every school year starts with the same question: What did you do over the summer? Let’s talk about what I watched this summer and what fell by the wayside. Continue reading
