Snackfever: Korean snacks and more!

I am a snacker, I love to snack while I’m watching my dramas. The problem is, I want to eat what I see on the screen or at least something similar. When you live in an area where there isn’t an Asian market, that’s a real problem. So while I was watching Let’s Eat a few years back, I went on the internet to see what kind of food I could order online. I discovered Snackfever and decided to give them a try.  Three years later, I’m still excited to see the box at my door. I got my box this week and thought I’d share this treat with our readers.

A Fangirl’s Book Review: Flower Boy Tour Guide

Many many years ago I came across a blog and couldn’t stop laughing. It was witty, entertaining, and had a unique writing style that was very engaging. Through a series of comments, the blogger and I (a noobie to the blogging game) became friends. Eventually, real life caused this blogger to no longer be able to blog full time and she decided to join the DWASOK family. During the summer you are privileged to experience this blogger’s entertaining reviews. Yup, I am talking about our very own DramaRookie. So I am equally as excited that she spent the last year working on a Kaddict themed novel Flower Boy Tour Guide. The book I will be reviewing today.
Synopsis: Continue reading

BOOK REVIEW: The Epic Crush of Genie Lo

Y’know what I hate? When a review starts off with a recap of the plot. If I’m interested in the book, I’ve already read the plot synopsis and nothing anyone puts in their review really tops what the publisher/author has already written.

WHEW. So glad I got that off my chest. Here’s what’s on F.C. Yee’s site about The Epic Crush of Genie Lo:

“The struggle to get into a top-tier college consumes sixteen-year-old Genie Lo’s every waking thought. But when her sleepy Bay Area town comes under siege from hell-spawn straight out of Chinese folklore, her priorities are suddenly and forcefully rearranged.

Her only guide to the demonic chaos breaking out around her is Quentin Sun, a beguiling, maddening new transfer student from overseas. Quentin assures Genie she is strong enough to fight these monsters, for she unknowingly harbors an inner power that can level the very gates of Heaven.

Genie will have to dig deep within herself to summon the otherworldly strength that Quentin keeps talking about. But as she does, she finds the secret of her true nature is entwined with his, in a way she could never have imagined…”

Kmuse’s Musings: Filipino Movie & Drama Streaming Site TFC Review

DramaKimchi25

Many of our readers know that Clkytta and I have been dipping our toes into the drama/movie waters of Southern Asia. Specifically Philippine movies and dramas. This experience has been both a positive and a negative. The positive being we have found a whole new level of fun romantic movies to delve into. The negative is the lack of English subs and availability of content to foreign viewers. Which brings me to today’s topic. The Filipino TV streaming site TFC. Is this the answer to my content problems? Come join me as I review the various aspects of the site and let you know if it is worth the money.  Continue reading

The Maknae’s Journey Through the Classics: City Hunter

...1.jpg

One of my favorite comic book heroes is Batman. Dark, broody, a little bit handsome, and sometimes sassy, he overcomes his tragic childhood through pure grit, then uses the resources he has available to make life better for the people around him, even if they don’t appreciate it. 

Now let’s put City Hunter into that paragraph: One of my favorite kdrama heroes is City Hunter. Dark, broody, a little bit handsome, and sometimes sassy, he overcomes his tragic childhood through pure grit, then uses the resources he has available to make life better for the people around him, even if they don’t appreciate it.

Yep, it works.
