Live: A Summary

Well, drama fans, we ran into a snag. The Fangirls went into Live with high expectations, but those expectations weren’t met and some of our recappers weren’t able to finish the drama. I, your resourceful Maknae, will do my best to sum up what happened between episode 8 and the end so that you can judge if you want to continue. There will be spoilers, and there will definitely be commentary on the writing, the acting, and the overall feel of the drama.

I’ll try to be accurate in these summaries, but I can’t promise it. I started hitting play over and over again just to be DONE with this drama and I don’t have the patience to go through the episodes again to make sure I’ve got it right.

Live Episode 4 Recap: Going By the Book

The others have introduced themselves, so I guess it is my turn. In case you are new to the blog or never took the time to peruse my bio, here is a little about me. I am Kdrama Jen. I have been watching Kdramas since 2006. (Yes, it was back before streaming sites were as ubiquitous and we had to scour the big bad internets for our favorite shows.) I love dramas with really great acting and tightly written scripts, and I enjoy blogging about my first impressions and the random thoughts that come to me as I watch. I especially love it when I can connect from one drama to the next–either concepts, actors, or themes. I have a day job that forces me to use my brain, so I freely admit that I sometimes watch dramas that are NOT tightly written or do NOT have stellar acting. I have a soft spot for idol dramas, and sometimes those are just fluffy, but I love them anyway. Don’t judge me. Continue reading

Live Episode 1 Recap: Overcoming Life’s Trials

The Asian police drama trauma of Kmuse.  I am telling you that this is a real thing.  So often I will go into a show and be driven batty by stupid/unrealistic cops who do stupid/unrealistic things.  So when we were discussing what drama to recap next I was slightly hesitant about picking a show which is focused solely on the police.  But, it turns out that this drama is more about surviving and overcoming obstacles, which I am totally into.  So join me as I recap the first episode of what is hopefully to be a wonderful and enriching drama experience.
