It’s the dog days of summer and the temperature where I live is creeping very close to 100 degrees. So I’ve been staying inside watching dramas and movies, as well as doing a bit of blogging.

This fangirl loves to travel and I’m always looking for shows I can download onto my electronic devices and watch while I’m in no man’s land aka on the plane.

I tried to keep my review pretty spoiler free, but beware, I may have slipped one in and not noticed. Continue reading

After several failed attempts to coerce my hubby into watching a K-movie with me (it’s an action flick, right?!), I decided no more waiting, and dove in feet first!
