First Impression: Moonshine

Welcome to the age of illegal spirits. Rice is scare so the king has banned all production, distribution, and consumption of alcohol. We all know how that goes: the rich keep drinking and the poor keep starving. What’s surprising is our male lead (Yoo Seung Ho) is on the side of righteousness with a proper stick up his butt, but all he needs is an independent moonshine dealer to help him loosen up. Kang Ro Seo (Lee Hye Ri) has bills to pay and her late father’s recipe for rice wine is just what she needs to free herself of debt. Throw in a hot Crown Prince who loves his wine, and a maiden with sticky fingers, and we’re in for a fun ride.

New Drama Confirmed for Yoo Seung Ho!!

The most adorable smile in Kdramaland (you can argue with me, but then you’d have to fight me) is returning to the small screen!

Yoo Seung Ho has been confirmed as the lead for Revenge is Back, a drama written by newcomer Kim Yoon Young and directed by Wok of Love‘s Ham Joon Ho. According to, “When Kang Bok Soo was a high school student, he was falsely accused of committing violence and kicked out of school. This was caused by his first love Son Soo Jung and a male student Oh Se Ho. Kang Bok Soo is a now an adult, but his life has not gone smoothly. To get revenge on Son Soo Jung and Oh Se Ho, he returns to the same high school as a student. The environment at the school has changed and Kang Bok Soo gets involved in unexpected cases.”

I’m so excited, y’all! I’m in the middle of a rewatch of I Am Not a Robot, so I’m super excited to see Yoo Seung Ho in another great, goofy drama. Crossing my fingers that Revenge is Back will live up to my expectations!

What do you think, drama fans? Will you be watching? The drama will start on SBS in December.

Until December, I remain–

First Impressions and Unfiltered Thoughts on I’m Not a Robot

When Kmuse and I heard Yoo Seung Ho would be starring in a new drama, we were both hopeful, but feeling cautious.

Read on to see Kdrama Jen’s first impressions and, as always, unfiltered thoughts! Continue reading
