The Maknae’s Spooky Journey through the Classics: White Christmas

It’s been a while since I did a journey through the classics–all the airing dramas lately have been top-notch, and it’s been difficult to find time for old fan favorites. Kmuse insisted that I needed to have White Christmas under my belt, though, and since she rarely steers me wrong, I pressed play on the first episode. Come see if it was the right Halloween drama for me!

Kmuse’s Musings: Going Back to School Kdrama Style

It’s fall!  The weather cools down, everything is flavored with pumpkin spice, and the kids go back to school.  There are a few times I envy my kids and their fun school shenanigans.  And whenever this happens I dive into the drama vault and rewatch some of my favorite school-themed dramas.  Because what is better than actually being in school?  Watching Seo In Guk being awkwardly sexy in school, of course.  Continue reading

Kmuse’s Musings: Why am I Still Watching Your Honor?

Your Honor is one of those dramas that sucks you in for no real reason.  The acting is so over the top I can’t believe the director decided that this was what he wanted from a performance.  The plot is pretty much Law Drama 101.  And the romance is really not even a concept yet.  Yet here i am clicking play 5 weeks in.  Come join me as I discuss the hits and misses of this drama and try to figure out why I am so addicted.

Live: A Summary

Well, drama fans, we ran into a snag. The Fangirls went into Live with high expectations, but those expectations weren’t met and some of our recappers weren’t able to finish the drama. I, your resourceful Maknae, will do my best to sum up what happened between episode 8 and the end so that you can judge if you want to continue. There will be spoilers, and there will definitely be commentary on the writing, the acting, and the overall feel of the drama.

I’ll try to be accurate in these summaries, but I can’t promise it. I started hitting play over and over again just to be DONE with this drama and I don’t have the patience to go through the episodes again to make sure I’ve got it right. This should tell you a lot about how I felt about this drama by the end. I’ll do my best to hit the highlights.
