For the first time, Viki is releasing a Japanese drama while it is still airing in Japan! They are calling it In Time With You (JP), because it is a remake of a Taiwanese drama of that title. In other places you will find it as I Don’t Love You Yet. What kind of show rates this milestone?Continue reading
Your Home is My Business is a fun, rather light show that has a lot of heart. It’s about a branch of a realty company that is not doing well, and a woman who is sent from the head office to shake them up.Continue reading
I am firmly on Team Angel Dan. Especially with his backstory and the fact that I’ve never warmed up to Kang Woo at all. So let’s see how the writers are going to try to convince me that Kang Woo is a real second lead and that Ni Na deserves to be the main ballerina.Continue reading
BTS in Chicago was an epic event. It was cold and rainy, but so much fun! The first BTS Winter Concert in Chicago was full of awesome highlights, so to make sure we had a chance to really fangirl about it, we invited the awesome Megan from Noona Ya Business podcast to join us for a chat. Hear about our favorite performances, moments, and songs as we have some serious ARMY bonding moments.Read mor
Happy Father’s Day! If you are one of the many people out there who get a little down on this day every year (me!), I have a binge watch for you. Okay, so some people don’t like to wallow in their sadness, or add to it, but I felt this drama was very therapeutic.Continue reading
JI SOOOOOOOO! Pardon my exuberance, but I’ve just come off a recent veiwing of Page Turner — need I say more? Ji Soo has firmly solidified a spot on my favorites list and will soon be back on our small screens with a new drama, My First First Love. Come check out the trailer with me!
All the descriptions of the drama that I’ve tracked down are rather wanting. But it seems as though this is going to be a slice of life drama about five friends leaving home for the first time and moving in together. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Kdrama without a love triangle — please, oh please, let our Ji Soo FINALLY get the girl!!!
The rest of the cast are all familiar faces, having been in supporting roles for various other dramas. My First First Love also stars Jung Chae Yeon, Jung Jin Young, Choi Ri, and Kang Tae Oh.
So one thing to note, this drama only has 8 episodes. Which means it’s longer than a drama special, but only half the length of the usual Kdrama episode count. Hopefully this allows enough time to flesh out all the characters, but keeps the plot from falling victim to unnecessary dragginess. And bonus. . . since it’s airing on Netflix (beginning April 18th), I can download and watch away from home – yeay!
What do you think drama fans? Will you be giving My First First Love a try??
Dramas With a Side of Kimchi
So, before we get started on the recap… I’m going to digress a lot because we’ve hit that patch where nothing really new is happening and I’m a little bored. Can we take a minute to talk about this trend of hottie evil minions? Cheol Bum’s trusty right-hand man is a real hottie! He’s all stoic and hot and evil and hot. It’s enough to distract a fangirl every time he’s in a scene! Prosecutor Park’s nemesis, her boss’s minion, is also pretty hot. I’m ok with this trend of hottie flower boy evil minions, at least they are nice to look at. Join me this week as I hope this story starts to progress a little more and stops going in circles.Continue reading
