One of my favorite things about k-dramas is how it brings people from all over the world together. Case in point is my friend MiataMama, whose husband has been stationed in Korea for the past few years. She’s been a drama fan for much longer than that, so she’s had ample time to see if things like wrist-grabbing are a thing in Korea, or just made up for our favorite OTPs.
Here are the questions you all asked that she could answer. Thanks for your submissions, drama fans!
I cannot even TELL you how excited I am for this trailer! (insert lots of Maknae squealing here) I can’t wait for Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days to be released in the US!
What do you think, drama fans? Are you up for the second installment? Come and squeal about it with me!
When I catch my breath, I will return to being your–

Dramas with a Side of Kimchi
I’m finding that Live is my new cracktastic drama. The characters are becoming compelling and growing, and while the plot isn’t novel and actually ends up being a bit predictable at times, it still resonates enough that I’m drawn in and want to keep watching. Continue reading
Come join The Fangirls as they try to persuade Kdrama Jen to watch their favorite Asian movie! Continue reading
There was something comfortable about watching Switch. It felt a little like coming home, which is odd to say about a drama that was full of twists. I reminded me, forcibly, of USA Network’s White Collar and TNT’s Leverage. All three shows drew me in because of the characters with contrasting moral codes, the unexpected plots, and the likable ensembles.
Howdy, drama fans! Karie the Maknae here, happy to join Kmuse, Drama Geek, and Kdrama Jen as we recap the new police kdrama Live. I have a hard time scaling down my recaps to the parts that stood out to me, especially in a drama like this, where every detail seems to have meaning. So buckle up, drama fans, because here come the Maknae’s thoughts on Live, episode 2! Continue reading
There are SOOOO many ways to make ramen and so many times I crave it while watching dramas. I figured this was the perfect time to expand my ramen palate (surprisingly, I avoided the stuff in college) and figure out the best ramen recipe for a newbie ramen fan. Join me as I go through my cooking process and maybe even help you think of new ways to enjoy this tasty meal. Continue reading
HAHAHAHA! I crack myself up. Those shots look like they’re from a very romantic melodrama, but that’s just good editing on my part . . . and a very obliging new trailer. Check it out after the jump and see how What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim DEFINITELY looks like a comedy.
I’ve figured out lately that I collect biases a little differently than other people. For instance, I will watching anything that Lee Hong Ki is in, not for his looks, but for his adorable personality–his humor just shines through. Lee Dong Wook is masterful at conveying his emotions and has a great sense of comic timing. And now that I’ve watched Hwayugi and The Greatest Love, I am on the Cha Seung Won train–the man is a capable actor who cracks me up even when he’s being ridiculously cheesy. That takes some serious talent, in my estimation.
Y’all, Life on Mars is looking like so much fun! I’m hoping it gets picked up by one of our streaming services–they’ve been oddly reluctant to pick up Western remakes, for some reason (*shakes fist at the Powers That Be*). Check out the clip after the jump and tell me what you think.
