A Fangirl Movie Review: The Princess and the Matchmaker

This fangirl loves to travel and I’m always looking for shows I can download onto my electronic devices and watch while I’m in no man’s land aka on the plane. I discovered The Princess and the Matchmaker last month and meant to watch it with my fellow fangirls during our time in L.A. for the BTS concert, but we got all distracted by other visual offerings. Last weekend I was headed out of town and I remembered that I had this movie to watch. My best friend, who isn’t into kdramas, watched this one on the plane with me and she laughed while I took notes. I tried to keep my review pretty spoiler free, but beware, I may have slipped one in and not noticed. Continue reading

The Fangirls’ Movie Review — Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon

Karie the Maknae: Over this last year, I’ve come to trust Kmuse’s recommendations more and more.

So when she said, “Do you want to watch Young Detective Dee?”, my immediate response was to pop popcorn and press play. As per usual, I was NOT disappointed.

The Fangirls Movie Review: The Suspect

Karie the Maknae: Once upon a time, I decided I wanted to watch a movie and review it with MiataMama. We have a mutual love for Gong Yoo, me because Goblin: The Great and Lonely God was my gateway drama, thanks in large part to Gong Yoo’s incredible acting. Between that and my uncharacteristic love for action movies, when MiataMama suggested The Suspect, I thought I could give it a try.

MiataMama: So when Karie the Maknae suggested doing a movie review together, I immediately offered up the 2013 film The Suspect as our subject for discussion. Starring the talented Gong Yoo, this movie has been on my watch list for some time now. After several failed attempts to coerce my hubby into watching a K-movie with me (it’s an action flick, right?!), I decided no more waiting, and dove in feet first!
