Tae Joo struggles with finding out if his current situation is all a coma induced dream or if he really traveled to the past (and in the end does it really matter). The clues continue to grow as he learns to navigate a more brutal police system. Continue reading
Secretary Kim is adorable – the show AND the character. No wonder Lee Young Joon is smitten. I wish someone would look at me that way. Has he always been like this or is it a case of you-don’t-know-what-you’ve-got-til-it’s-gone? Either way, I’m loving it. Continue reading
Life on Mars continues to bring us more questions than answers in episode 2. As Han Tae Joo struggles to find his bearings in 1988, we also get tiny hints of what is happening on the other side. Let’s talk about how Tae Joo’s adjusting to old-school crime investigation as all of us try to figure out just what is going on here. Continue reading
Not much changed in this episode. Secretary Kim is still quitting. Her handsome boss is still freaking out. And the show is still hitting a sweet spot. Let’s talk about why.
Wait! What’s that sweet smell? Like fresh, fudgy brownies coming hot out of the oven?
Yes! It’s a romantic comedy! A real one! Not a legal drama or a supernatural story with romance woven through it. What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (Why Secretary Kim) is a genuine, honest-to-goodness, squeeworthy, romantic comedy. And I am sooooooooooo happy. Continue reading

I’m finding that Live is my new cracktastic drama. The characters are becoming compelling and growing, and while the plot isn’t novel and actually ends up being a bit predictable at times, it still resonates enough that I’m drawn in and want to keep watching. Continue reading

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
