I foresee that our positive comments are going to be few and far apart in these last few episodes. It is really hard to remain positive when the plot focuses on that blasted orb of stupidity. Seriously, I still don’t know why that orb is important and we are entering the home stretch. But I digress. Drama Geek and I are committed to positive comments so please join us as we discuss the scintillating details of various cast members wardrobe. What? We have to talk about something while our leads are being defeated by the stupid possessed 1st Prince. Continue reading
Y’know, there’s a reason that Kmuse’s name is Kmuse. She really is my inspiration when it comes to picking dramas. I’ll whine that I have time to kill between finishing a series and waiting for the poll to close and she ALWAYS has the perfect solution. She’s also happy to promote Seo In Guk to new fans anytime, anywhere. And for very good reason. Because of her, I’m now a huge fan myself.
Attitude! It’s all about attitude! Last week Dramas with a Side of Kimchi spotlighted hooking your man on Korean dramas. How happy do you think we were when Jennneeefeeerr wrote in the comments section that her husband watched Man to Man and Bad Guys with her? And then diannegoh commented that her husband enjoyed Healer and Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho. Yes! Proof it can be done! Read on to see more ways you can hook your man on Korean television!
I had a terrible time starting this series, y’all. I was raised to say “please” and “thank you” on a regular basis, and I’m raising my children in Texas, so we add “ma’am” and “sir” when needed. The female lead of I Hear Your Voice, Jang Hye Sung, was NOT raised that way and she got on my nerves at the beginning. There was a point when she finally said “thank you” to someone and I actually said, OUT LOUD, “How did those words taste coming out of your mouth?” Made my husband laugh and he was in a different room!
Y’all, I finished Answer Me 1988 a day before we posted the poll and I had to wait THREE WHOLE DAYS for the poll to close before I knew what I was going to watch next. I maaaaaay have whined to Unni Amber about it and she may have suggested I Remember You as a great way to fill that time. Seo In Guk? Park Bo Gum? Mystery? I was in. And then I was completely hooked.
Are you looking for a fluffy drama full of handsome Chinese swimmers? Well, maybe you didn’t exactly know that is what you were looking for, but I would like to convince you that My Mr. Mermaid might be just what you need. Join me as l share my unfiltered thoughts and reasons why you should “dive into” this drama. Continue reading
At least once a year this inevitably happens. I start watching a Korean crime drama and get so pissed off at police stupidity that I start searching elsewhere for my crime trope fix. Sure enough, I started Criminal Minds and within an hour I was yelling, “Nope, nope, nope.” and searching for something else. Just so happens that my all time Japanese bias had released a crime drama earlier in the year and it was completely subbed! It is amazing the things you miss when you actually have real life interfering with drama addiction. But in this case, it is a great surprise since I can now binge the heck out of Oguri Shun’s newest show Crisis. And that, of course, means writing a blog post to try and encourage all of my amazing readers to give it a try with me. Drama enabling is alive and well here at DWASOK. Continue reading
We have finally reached the end of Suspicious Partner. And while there were high and low points in the plot, the writer has rewarded our patience with two final episodes of pure and total fluff. Something I would usually be upset about, but with a cast that is the cutest fluffy cast ever, I will give it a pass and just enjoy the last hour of a relatively successful storyline. Continue reading
Most watchers of Korean dramas are adults, but some of us watch with our families. I usually do that in the evenings with my husband, and sometimes with a granddaughter who visits. I have seen comments from other people looking for dramas to watch with children, so I thought I would share my experiences. Part of this includes how the granddaughter reacted to the dramas, which will involve some spoilers. I’ll give warning, although these are mostly older dramas since I only show her things I have already seen. Continue reading
