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

Ah, what a way to start off the New Year!
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.
What would you do if you were asked to fly to a different country to meet a man whose dead girlfriend looked just like you? We get to see what happens in one case. Continue reading
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.
