Seo In Guk & Jung So Min exchange glances in first stills from upcoming drama The Smile has Left Your Eyes

I am so EXCITED!  Those of you who have been longtime followers of the blog know that I have had a deep love for the actor Seo In Guk since way back when he was in Love Rain.  So to finally have another drama coming my way after his long hiatus has made my week, my month, heck, maybe even my year.  Yes, I know these are only stills of our future OTP (one true pairing), but I swear I can already feel the chemistry jumping from the screen.

Legal Action in Kdramas: A Comparative Look at the Korean Justice System

Have you ever watched a Korean drama and wondered about the courtroom scenes? Why are some judges so young? Why do prosecutors seem more like investigators? Where are the juries? Why does it seem like the judge is interrupting with questions instead of letting the attorneys present their cases? Well, Kdrama Jen is here to answer your questions! Come along as we chat about Korea’s judicial system and how it relates to our favorite dramas!

Overwhelmed With Thanks: The Drama Edition

I am thankful I figured out a spot to put this into the post. And Maknae & Jen said it couldn’t be done. Bwhahahaha

We thought it would be fun to do a tiny post to express all the things we are thankful for this year at Dramas With A Side of Kimchi.  So take a moment from basting those turkeys and dodging those relatives (possibly in a closet to check out your favorite dramas) and join us in giving thanks.

The Maknae’s Journey Through the Classics: Reply 1997/Answer Me 1997

It’s not often that I let people make decisions for me. I may be the DWASOK Maknae, but in real life I’m the oldest in my family AND the mother of four children. So, you see, usually *I* am the one making the decisions.

But I have NO REGRETS. Oh, you guys, ZERO REGRETS. I loved Reply 1997/Answer Me 1997. I loved it so much I accidentally had a marathon! Thankfully, I had a day with very few obligations and the kids are more than old enough to fend for themselves — and to feed me. 😀 Yeah, I’m that kind of mom.  Continue reading

Kmuse’s Musings: How To Survive While Your Bias Is Gone For 2 Years of Military Service

.;a1a1We all knew this day was coming.  As of March 28th 2017, Seo In Guk officially entered the mandatory South Korean military for two very long years.  I imagine I am not the only Heartrider, sitting at my computer devastated at the thought that my bias will not be in new dramas, music videos, or any other form of media entertainment for 24 months.  So I thought it would be useful to write out in words how I am going to survive this horrible time in my life.

Fangirl Stalking: Seo In Guk

fotorcreated2

It has come to my attention from several of our readers that I have been remiss in doing a Fangirl Stalking post for my ultimate bias of all time Seo In Guk.  It isn’t because I don’t love him (as we all know that I do) but just the thought that I write about him so much that I might annoy people with my fangirl exuberance.  But obviously that is not the case since we have had requests so without further ado……here are my thoughts on Seo In Guk’s filmography!
