Take a goofy Korean PI and a rookie Chinese undercover operative, throw in some guns and a rather interesting motive, and you have a movie that is absolutely perfect for me. (The voters have impeccable taste.) Come see if Kim Young Kwang and Lee Sun Bin’s Mission: Possible antics might just work for you too!Continue reading
The Box, starring Park Chan Yeol (EXO) and Jo Dal Hwan, is one of the loveliest stories I have seen in quite a while. I don’t often watch movies – my time in drama-land leaves me desirous of fictional characters with more depth than a two-hour film can typically provide.

And since I always need blog content, you all get to join me on my Bollywood journey. So the first film up is Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.Continue reading

Karie the Maknae: Over this last year, I’ve come to trust Kmuse’s recommendations more and more. My own forays into Chinese dramas were disastrous, but after Kmuse inadvertently got me to watch Legend of Fuyao, I’ve discovered that branching out from kdramas ain’t so bad. 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.
