I watched Shin Hye Sun in a couple of shows this last year that took me off on a tangent with the Korean language. Have you ever noticed the subtitles not matching the names the characters are saying? Come and see what I noticed about how Koreans address each other, and then, if you have more information, please comment! (We have tried hard to find the correct word usage and romanization of the Korean words. Meaning, we scoured the internet and picked the brains of our members who are learning Korean. That said, we know we may have a few mistakes here, so let us know if you see something so we can use the correct term. -Clkytta)Continue reading
Ah, what a way to start off the New Year!
Well, drama fans, that wasn’t the ending I was hoping for. Come see what MiataMama and I thought of the finale of Where Stars Land.
Ok, it’s the last episode. Yay for me being right and they weren’t siblings! But…now what? Moo Young killed Creepy Sister CEO and I’m not getting Happily Ever After vibes here. Join me as we wrap up the final episode of The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.
We’re getting close to the end, folks! The intensity is heating up and some secrets are being revealed. But are they the right secrets? Come find out in our chatty recap of Where the Stars Land.
Oh, I have been waiting for Park Bo Gum to grace my screen again, and the teasers for Encounter do not disappoint. We usually reserve the term “mane of glory” for the sageuk and historical locks, but Park Bo Gum just owns this look.

So Ji Sub is the main attraction in Terius Behind Me, and of COURSE The Fangirls had to weigh in on his first drama since 2015’s Oh My Venus. Come see if we think that So Ji Sub has chosen wisely, or if this is a hard pass in a new crop of good-looking dramas.
Two chilling new teasers for the upcoming drama The Ghost Detective have just been released. Murder, mystery, and a whole lot of spooky might make this show the perfect fall-weather watch!
It is a common trope throughout storytelling: the ugly duckling becomes a beautiful swan. American movies in the 80s certainly used this approach a lot, geeky guy takes off his glasses and gets some new clothes and suddenly…hot, hot, hot. Overlooked girl gets her hair cut and styled and tosses her glasses (note the glasses theme here) and suddenly…instant popularity.

Reality creeps in, however, when it becomes clear that surgery cannot immediately transform a timid personality or erase the years of pain experienced. In fact, even beautiful people can get bullied. Read on to discover our first impressions and unfiltered thoughts about My ID is Gangnam Beauty. Continue reading
