We have a new robot Kdrama! It’s about an android who is designed to learn and to be self-aware, and looks like a cute teenage girl. Well, why would they bother to design an ugly one? She graces our tv screens in a short web drama called I Am… only six episodes of fifteen minutes each. It’s an easy watch, and it is well done. Come with me and meet our latest robot, Annie!

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?
You guys you guys YOU GUYS!! Can I be in love with a drama after only watching two episodes? YES I CAN! Come join Kmuse and I as we discuss our first impressions of Radio Romance.
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!
Is it possible to be watching a drama, not like ANY of the characters, and still want to know who really killed the victim? A victim that was also completely unlikable so you really are not invested in her death in the first place? That, my friends, is the enigma of the new mystery drama Return. Continue reading
My husband and I often talk about psychology and mental health. We took a few classes together in college and he has a master’s degree in a psychology-related field. We’ve talked about how it seems like Korean culture doesn’t really have an open dialogue about things like depression and anxiety. So when I talked his ear off about Kill Me, Heal Me, his first comment was, “I thought kdramas didn’t deal with mental health!” I laughed. Kill Me, Heal Me is aaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllll about the mental health! And I loved it the whole time I was watching it.

My Sunday evenings are usually very similar after I get in bed. Look at all the dramas I need to catch up on… searches for hours for the next binge watch instead. For some reason the same feeling came over me on Thursday, (I blame it on slow Viki subs) and thankfully my search unearthed Solomon’s Perjury. With it’s shorter 12 episodes, I was able to binge this in four days, and you can now find it on Netflix. Join me for a fairly spoiler free review of the series. Continue reading
