The Maknae Recommends: A Spoiler-free Review of Switch

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.

First Impressions and Unfiltered Thoughts: Partners for Justice

I predict that Investigation Couple/Partners for Justice will be one of those polarizing dramas that people will either love or hate. Come see what Kmuse and Karie the Maknae have to say about the first 4 episodes (but not really 4 episodes, because they’re the one-episode-split-into-two format that’s trendy right now. This doesn’t bug me. Not at all. I have no idea why you would think that.)

Return – The drama that defied our expectations

Remember way back when? Back when I wrote a 1st impression post and declared that Return was “weird” and I would most likely be dropping it after four episodes? It turned out that I was 100% wrong. Not only didn’t I drop Return but it became one of my favorite recent dramas. So join Kdrama Jen and me (Kmuse) as we discuss what we loved about this drama and how it turned our expectations on their head. Continue reading

Drama Fashion Review: Just Between Coat Lovers

Sometimes I have a hard time letting go of a drama that I am really fond of. In this case, I keep thinking about Just Between Lovers, a quietly endearing story of two people who find each other after having endured the same tragic incident in their past. There is something that I noticed all through the series and finally decided to take a good look at. I am talking about the coats. Seriously, for a woman who seems to be not very well off, she has a LOT of coats, and they are mostly really nice wool coats. Who else noticed it? Come with me and take a look at this! How many do you think there are?

Who’s Not a Robot?

Who’s not a robot? It depends on who you’re talking to. Meet Aji-3, she definitely is a robot! I was excited when I’m Not a Robot premiered, and to see a Korean drama with a robot in it, and now she has become my girl-crush. I am a fan of science fiction, and you don’t find much of that in dramas. Knowing that our story is largely about someone who is NOT a robot, let’s see how Aji-3 fares in a Kdrama!
