It’s August, and for me, that means it’s Back to School time. I’m a full-time student and a mom, so I’m currently caught up in finding obscure sizes of paper and lamenting the end of my free time when school starts next week. 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
I just can’t contain it anymore. There are so many amazing female characters on my screen right now that I need to gush about them. It’s not always easy to find a layered female character so I’m a happy camper.
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!

Yup, the wait is almost over. Prison Playbook is finishing its run in South Korea and we are finally going to be able to watch it here in the states. Set your clocks because it is being downloaded on January 24th.
A new year is a new beginning, a clean slate, and a good opportunity to improve ourselves. Does hearing other people talking about New Year’s Resolutions get you thinking? Does it get to be too much for you? Lucky you! For Asian drama watchers, this kind of thing ends up being a lot more fun! We have some ideas for you of how to fall farther into the kimchi rabbit hole!
Last week we saw a ton of premiers and we thought we’d give a first impression of a few that we watched. I happily grabbed up Mad Dog. A show on the outside that looks about as interesting as sitting on hold with your insurance company for four hours. But once you peal back the premise you get a sexy caper drama with a pretty big melodramatic underbelly. Continue reading
