I’ve heard of Julie Kagawa for years, but I never got around to reading her books. Why? No idea. But now that she has a book about a ninja and a fox shape-shifter, all of a sudden I’m in. Come see if Shadow of the Fox held my attention!Continue reading

Getting Sucked into Chinese Dramas: Because I Have SO MUCH TIME On My Hands
Being a drama watcher can be hazardous to your health at times. It’s more than eating every time your favorite characters eat in a drama (I’m avoiding Let’s Eat for a reason!!) and losing sleep to watch just ONE more episode. Come join me as I tell you the cautionary tale of falling down the Cdrama rabbit hole.Continue reading
What Should I Watch Next? The Maknae’s Tale of Abundant Options and Peer Pressure
Once upon a time, in a land that’s not so far away and only about 2 years ago, I was the newest entrant into dramaland. I had just consumed Goblin in a record amount of time, setting aside things like household chores and sleep. The question inevitably came to my mind: “What am I going to watch next??” I floundered. I stumbled. I watched things better left unwatched. Then I found drama-watching communities and EVERYTHING changed (KMUSE: We Fangirls ruined her) .Continue reading
Don’t Leave the Maknae Unattended: Love O2O
When we were migrating the blog over to the new platform a while back, I kept seeing the posts on Love O2O show up. I didn’t read them because my maknae self said, “Holy CRAP, Chinese dramas are LONG.”
HA. Then I watched Legend of Fu Yao and I realized that 30 episodes was NOTHING.
The Maknae’s Journey through the Classics: The Greatest Love
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.

Hi-dee-ho, neighbors! It is I, your lovable Maknae, back from another solo journey into KDramaland. Did I survive? I did! And I came away with a greater appreciation for Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin’s acting skills. Let’s talk about School 2013, shall we?
Don’t Leave the Maknae Unattended: I Remember You
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.
The Maknae’s Journey Through the Classics: City Hunter
One of my favorite comic book heroes is Batman. Dark, broody, a little bit handsome, and sometimes sassy, he overcomes his tragic childhood through pure grit, then uses the resources he has available to make life better for the people around him, even if they don’t appreciate it.
Now let’s put City Hunter into that paragraph: One of my favorite kdrama heroes is City Hunter. Dark, broody, a little bit handsome, and sometimes sassy, he overcomes his tragic childhood through pure grit, then uses the resources he has available to make life better for the people around him, even if they don’t appreciate it.
Yep, it works.
