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. Continue reading
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. Continue reading
We finish our recap of the AMAZING kdrama Come and Hug Me (Hug a Psycho) and discuss our latest favorite Still 17. Come join us for squeals galore as we discuss our favorite moments in these two stellar dramas.
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
The monsoon season temps continue to soar here in Korea, yet all my favorite “summer dramas” are coming to a close. What’s a drama fan to do with all this free time? Hunker down with the A/C blasting and start a new drama of course! Read on for my first impressions of Familiar Wife, starring Ji Sung and Han Ji Min. Continue reading
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
Here we are at the very end of our drama, and now we have to say goodbye to our characters. How did it turn out, and what do we think of the ending? In trying to express my feelings, instead of a normal recap, I ended up with something slightly different. Be aware there will be SPOILERS.
It’s the end and I’m not ready! I’ve invested a lot of hours into this drama, a drama that wasn’t even on my radar until Kmuse asked if I’d recap it with her. Since then, I’ve been literally on the edge of my seat watching every week while writing notes furiously. Will all our loose ends be tied up or will we be left with more questions than answers? Continue reading
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–
