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??
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.
Sometimes a drama fan just needs to watch a drama with off-the-wall comedic moments and over-the-top makjang intensity. The Last Empress is just such a drama. Come join The Fangirls as we cover our expectations going into The Last Empress, our favorite characters, where we think the story is headed, and so much more!
Ah, what a way to start off the New Year! Hot-Blooded Priest has an all-star cast with Kim Nam Gil, Kim Sung Kyun, and Lee Honey. I am going to guess we will have a good mix of humor and intrigue in this one. I love a good murder mystery, so I’m excited about this drama. Look for future recap posts for Hot-Blooded Priest, I know I’m on board for recapping this drama!
This is one of those dramas I am on the fence about. On one hand, the first several seasons of Quiz From God were amazing. On the other, when it went bland, it went really bland. So where does that leave Quiz From God: Reboot? Continue reading →
Autumn is a time for relaxing and catching up on a good mystery. Something about this time of year is just perfect for sitting back and being a couch detective. My fellow fangirls know I am obsessed with Agatha Christie. I even own a The Body in the Library tee shirt. So when a Korean version of an Agatha Christie mystery popped up on the list, of course, I got very excited. After all, it’s combining two of my favorite things kdramas, and Agatha Christie stories.
Early in my kdrama career, I watched Scarlet Heart, closely followed by Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. I was young(er), I was impressionable, and there was this one common denominator between the two dramas — Ji Soo. There’s plenty of eye candy in both dramas, of course, but Ji Soo’s playful gravity, combined with his warm good looks, drew my attention. So come join me as I indulge in a little fangirl stalking of Ji Soo.
I need my heart to calm down, Lee Min Ki is about to be back on my screen with a new drama! We have the first teaser for The Beauty Within, and obviously, I’m pretty excited about this.
Synopsis from AsianWiki: Han Se-Kye (Seo Hyun-Jin) is a top actress. She is known as a troublemaker and the object of many rumors. Her life is a mystery, but, in reality, she suffers from an unusual phenomenon. At a certain point every month, her appearance changes to a different person. She lives one week out of every month with a different appearance. Han Se-Kye meets Seo Do-Jae (Lee Min-Ki). Seo Do-Jae is an executive at an airline company. He seems perfect with an attractive appearance and possessing smarts, but he suffers from an inability to recognize faces. He hides this disability and tries hard to memorize people by their habits and mannerisms. The only person’s face that he is able to recognize is Han Se-Kye. By meeting her, his life changes.
This drama is based on a movie with the same name. I really liked the movie and I’m interested to see how they handle this in a longer format. Are you excited for this drama to start? Mark your calendars for September 17th, I’ve already marked mine!
