Anyone in the mood for deep thoughts, self reflection, and long walks from the bus stop? Lee Min Ki, Lee El, and Kim Ji Won play three siblings who live out in the country with their parents, yet all work in Seoul. Their daily commute looks exhausting and wears on their ability to hold relationships and participate in work activities. At first glance, you would think “this show moves at a glacial pace” as we follow each mundane thing the siblings do about their day. But as we continue the journey, I’m finding a quiet peace in their meanderings. They are all in a state of personal growth and I find myself wanting to grow along with them. Let’s see if you too can handle the commute.Continue reading

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!
Until Next Time,
Dramas With a Side of Kimchi
Since we are all going through some serious Lee Min Ki withdrawals we decided to check out one of his classic movies. Come see what we thought of the spooky romance Spellbound.
Last week was a week full of new dramas which meant I was busy trying to decide which of the nine I would be simulcasting. Yup, you heard right. Nine new kdramas aired last week which is a bit too much for even this Fangirl to watch all at once. So a decision had to be made. Come find out if Because It Is My First LIfe made the cut as I share my first impressions. Continue reading
I am really enjoying this double teaser promotion style that is happening with the upcoming tvN drama This Life is Our First. Not only does it highlight both leads (SQUEEEE! Lee Min Ki is back!) but I love how we see fate step in at the end of both teasers and brings our leads together. Continue reading
SQUEEEE!!! Lee Min Ki is finally back on a drama! Thanks to military service and post military life, he has been gone so long that most of the newer kaddicts won’t even know who he is. But this fangirl remembers his awesome acting skills and could not be happier. And after Jung So Min’s successful run on Father is Strange, I am totally prepared to ship them. Continue reading
