Watching dramas is my favorite pastime. And even though I greatly appreciate the more popular Hallyu actors and actresses, I often find myself bolting down random rabbit trails to fangirl over lesser-known (and under-appreciated) talent. Enter novice actor Kim Seon Ho. Admittedly, my soft spot for dimples may have be the reason I first took notice of him! But I’ve been watching his progression through Kdramas since his very first role in Chief Kim. A little bit goofy and awkward, but with an abundance of sweetness and sincerity, his characters always have surprising depth and leave a lasting impression. So come join me as introduce the charming and captivating Kim Seon Ho!Continue reading
Never judge a drama by its synopsis.
I have started so many dramas in the past couple of months, prepared to watch a certain story line or genre based on the plot synopsis. After beginning, though, I come to find what I was promised and what I’m actually watching are two entirely different things. Sometimes, unfulfilled expectations can be super frustrating. And sometimes, they can give you the gift of a fantastic drama you may not have pushed play on otherwise. Radiant is one of these dramas. Nothing could have prepared me for the journey I embarked on. (And that’s probably a good thing!) Come join DramaGeek and I as we share our thoughts on this hidden gem.Continue reading

Long before I was a K-drama junkie, I was (and still am) a lover of books.

Read on to see what I thought about Marie Lu’s book Warcross.Continue reading
Netflix has begun airing the highly anticipated Lee Jong Suk drama, Romance Is A Bonus Book. Since Lee Jong Suk will be beginning his military service soon, it’s time to start preparing for his absence.

My drama plate has been filled with nothing but serious and intense dramas for the past month, so I am SUPER excited for a couple of rom-coms premiering this week. In particular, Touch Your Heart which is starring two of my Hallyu favorites- Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Ah. After watching the extra long trailer TVN just dropped, I can’t wait!Continue reading
When the stars align and life hands you the opportunity to see one of your favorite Korean actors perform live, you jump on it! I was recently able to snag tickets and attend the Daejeon performance of Shinheung Military Academy Musical, starring Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, and Sung Gyu (from the k-pop group Infinite). Since these three actor/singers are currently in the middle of their mandatory military service and have been MIA from our drama screens, it was an especially delightful way to end my time in Korea. AND being able to watch Ji Chang Wook act on the stage, right in front of me, was all that I dreamed it would be!Continue reading
I’ve been on a bit of a drama-hiatus (suffering from major withdrawals, actually), as my family underwent the upheaval of an international move.

I just saw the most recent teaser for Romance Is A Bonus Book and my first thought was— What could be better than a drama about books and romance starring one of my top 10 actors, Lee Jong Suk? Answer: Absolutely nothing!Continue reading
