I’m between semesters at college, so I’ve been dramathoning like a good little fangirl. Coffee Do Me a Favor caught my eye, and I had high hopes that this drama would overcome all the fat to skinny tropes we are used to. You know, the ones where the frumpy stupid fat girl loses a lot of weight and becomes beautiful and smart. Let me just say, I want those hours I spent watching this drama back.Continue reading
I’ve figured out lately that I collect biases a little differently than other people. For instance, I will watching anything that Lee Hong Ki is in, not for his looks, but for his adorable personality–his humor just shines through. Lee Dong Wook is masterful at conveying his emotions and has a great sense of comic timing. And now that I’ve watched Hwayugi and The Greatest Love, I am on the Cha Seung Won train–the man is a capable actor who cracks me up even when he’s being ridiculously cheesy. That takes some serious talent, in my estimation.
Arang and the Magistrate strikes me as a perfect drama for Halloween. It has ghosts, as well as a whole background of mythology that is better than perhaps that of any other drama. We get Shin Min-ah as our perky ghost, Lee Joon-ki as The Magistrate who can see ghosts, Yoo Seung-ho as the Great Jade Emperor with a Mane of Glory, hot Reapers, and Heavenly Fairies. What more could you ask for?

Y’all, I finished Answer Me 1988 a day before we posted the poll and I had to wait THREE WHOLE DAYS for the poll to close before I knew what I was going to watch next. I maaaaaay have whined to Unni Amber about it and she may have suggested I Remember You as a great way to fill that time. Seo In Guk? Park Bo Gum? Mystery? I was in. And then I was completely hooked.
