Y’all know how much I struggle with watching historicals, but 100 Days My Prince is tempting me anyway! D.O. is a fantastic actor and this teaser cracks me up. How could I not be won over?
Here’s the plot summary from MDL if you need a refresher like I did: “Lee Yul falls off a cliff and nearly dies in an attempted assassination. He loses his memory and wanders for 100 days under a new name and personality. During this period, he meets Hong Sim, head of the first detective agency in Joseon.”
I’m in. Even looking at my hideously full drama plate, I will make it work SOMEHOW.
What about you, drama fans? Will you be watching? 100 Days My Prince starts on Monday, September 10th, on tvN.
Until then, I remain–

Needing a break from all the angst and intensity in my drama-watching schedule, I decided to check out the new show Witch’s Love. I wasn’t expecting much but fluff and some tropes, and I ended up being pleasantly surprised, so I made MiataMama watch it with me. What can I say? I’m a helper like that. Continue reading
When I was putting together my post of Korean culture questions for MiataMama, Kdrama Jen helpfully suggested that she had some host daughters who live in Korea, and that they could answer questions too! So below we have answers from HostDaughter1, who is 26, a former military officer and current office worker; and HostDaughter2, who is 21 and currently a student at a prestigious Korean university. MiataMama is an American. She and her children are in Korea with her husband, who has been stationed there with the US military for a few years.
It’s been interesting to see their different responses to these questions, and to see the difference in their experiences. Enjoy!
I’m breathing, you’re breathing, we’re all taking deep breaths and watching the fantastic trailers below: Continue reading
Join The Fangirls as we chat dramas that that made us sleepy since we couldn’t stop pushing next episode. But these are not just your regular well-done drama. These are the ones that have flaws but sucked us in regardless. So come find out what cracktastic dramas you should binge watch ASAP!
So the trailers for Thirty But Seventeen don’t give away much, but the premise is absolutely intriguing. Also intriguing–why is our lead dressed like a cave man??
There’s a new webtoon adaptation in town, and I’m not sure what I think, drama fans. It also seem to be an idol drama. Will this combination work?
The Fangirls have been buzzing about this drama since it was announced, and it’s finally here! SQUEEEE! Also, entertain yourself by playing “Where’s Chilbongie?” with the movie poster above. I’ll give you a hint–he’s hidden under a TON of hair, and it looks good.
Well, Let’s Eat is back! It seems that our main character, Goo Dae Young (Yoon Doo Joon), has always had a habit of getting into relationships with women who need to learn how to appreciate food. So does that make him a serial monogamist or a cereal monogamist? The Maknae must know! Continue reading
Well, drama fans, we ran into a snag. The Fangirls went into Live with high expectations, but those expectations weren’t met and some of our recappers weren’t able to finish the drama. I, your resourceful Maknae, will do my best to sum up what happened between episode 8 and the end so that you can judge if you want to continue. There will be spoilers, and there will definitely be commentary on the writing, the acting, and the overall feel of the drama.
I’ll try to be accurate in these summaries, but I can’t promise it. I started hitting play over and over again just to be DONE with this drama and I don’t have the patience to go through the episodes again to make sure I’ve got it right. This should tell you a lot about how I felt about this drama by the end. I’ll do my best to hit the highlights.
