Being a drama watcher can be hazardous to your health at times. It’s more than eating every time your favorite characters eat in a drama (I’m avoiding Let’s Eat for a reason!!) and losing sleep to watch just ONE more episode. Come join me as I tell you the cautionary tale of falling down the Cdrama rabbit hole.Continue reading
Once upon a time, in a land that’s not so far away and only about 2 years ago, I was the newest entrant into dramaland. I had just consumed Goblin in a record amount of time, setting aside things like household chores and sleep. The question inevitably came to my mind: “What am I going to watch next??” I floundered. I stumbled. I watched things better left unwatched. Then I found drama-watching communities and EVERYTHING changed (KMUSE: We Fangirls ruined her) .Continue reading
When we were migrating the blog over to the new platform a while back, I kept seeing the posts on Love O2O show up. I didn’t read them because my maknae self said, “Holy CRAP, Chinese dramas are LONG.”
HA. Then I watched Legend of Fu Yao and I realized that 30 episodes was NOTHING.
I don’t really keep a bias list or anything like that, but I’ve noticed lately that if I don’t know what to listen to, I turn to either FTIsland or Lee Hong Gi’s solo work. I guess that means I *do* have a bias…? I do love listening to Hong Gi’s powerful, slightly raspy voice a whole lot. Anyway, here are the top 5 Lee Hong Gi songs on my playlist!
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.
I have to admit there are a LOT of kpop songs that evoke a certain feeling in me of stretching out to reach someone or something — and they aren’t all from OSTs (just most of them). Come chat Kpop Songs of Longing with me!
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.
There’s a question of vulnerability in this week’s episodes of Where Stars Land. Can Soo Yeon allow himself to be vulnerable enough to let Yeo Reum know about his weakness? Can Yeo Reum find the courage to say the “L” word? (But not THAT “L” word. Because this IS a Korean drama.) Let’s chat about it!
The Maknae finally got around to watching Chicago Typewriter (one of the best decisions I’ve made this year!), which made for a great Patreon podcast discussion. Come join us as we discuss our favorite OTP moments, what we learned about this rarely portrayed era in Korean history, and whether we would recommend it to anyone else. (SPOILER ALERT: We totally would!)
Kpop music videos are always colorful and brilliantly executed and they definitely embrace an element of the weird more often than not. Today’s selection, however, pushed me beyond the initial “What did I just watch?” reaction, though. Before you start thinking that the shiny newness has not worn off this Maknae, let me tell you that there were several videos that did not make the cut for today’s post, including SHINee’s “Everybody” and “Ring Ding Dong.” In my wanderings down the kpop rabbit hole, I have found some videos that would make even David Bowie raise his eyebrows. Without further ado, I present to you Five Over-the-Top Kpop MVs!
