Kmuse’s Musings: Why am I Still Watching Your Honor?

Your Honor is one of those dramas that sucks you in for no real reason.  The acting is so over the top I can’t believe the director decided that this was what he wanted from a performance.  The plot is pretty much Law Drama 101.  And the romance is really not even a concept yet.  Yet here i am clicking play 5 weeks in.  Come join me as I discuss the hits and misses of this drama and try to figure out why I am so addicted.

I am so EXCITED!  Those of you who have been longtime followers of the blog know that I have had a deep love for the actor Seo In Guk since way back when he was in Love Rain.  So to finally have another drama coming my way after his long hiatus has made my week, my month, heck, maybe even my year.  Yes, I know these are only stills of our future OTP (one true pairing), but I swear I can already feel the chemistry jumping from the screen.

Back to School: Saying Goodbye to My Summer Drama Marathon

It’s August, and for me, that means it’s Back to School time. I’m a full-time student and a mom, so I’m currently caught up in finding obscure sizes of paper and lamenting the end of my free time when school starts next week. Every school year starts with the same question: What did you do over the summer? Let’s talk about what I watched this summer and what fell by the wayside. Continue reading

New TvN drama Big Forest throws out a retro vibe in 1st Teaser

Every now and then a drama comes along and there aren’t any big name actors and you and were totally oblivious that it was even in the works.  Such is the drama Big Forest.  Shin Dong Yup, Jung Sang Hoon, & Choi Hee Seo have starred (often as side characters) in various dramas that I watched but none really stick out.  That isn’t necessarily a bad thing though. This interesting casting choice means that someone thought they were talented enough for a shot at the big time. Will they be able to hold our attention as leads? Continue reading

New teaser for 100 Days My Prince is adorable!!

Y’all know how much I struggle with watching historicals, but 100 Days My Prince is tempting me anyway! D.O. is a fantastic actor and this teaser cracks me up. How could I not be won over?

Here’s the plot summary from MDL if you need a refresher like I did: “Lee Yul falls off a cliff and nearly dies in an attempted assassination. He loses his memory and wanders for 100 days under a new name and personality. During this period, he meets Hong Sim, head of the first detective agency in Joseon.”

I’m in. Even looking at my hideously full drama plate, I will make it work SOMEHOW.

What about you, drama fans? Will you be watching? 100 Days My Prince starts on Monday, September 10th, on tvN.

Until then, I remain–
