I’m doing weekly round-ups now, which will include any media I consumed for the past week, from Monday to Sunday. I’d be glad if you end up getting some recommendations but I’m only doing this as a form of a media journal (to make it easy to write reviews later on). And fine, an actual journal too. Here goes!
P.S. I watched almost nothing this week but I blogged a lot (like every weekday) so at least there’s that? I don’t even have a gif from a show I’ve seen. I just saw this on Twitter and laughed aloud and wanted to suddenly start watching Blackpink House after.
If you’ve been following the blog, you should have seen me bemoaning how all of the girl groups I liked in the past have disbanded. So here’s a little playlist with some of their hits because I’ve been reliving their glory days for the past week. No 2NE1 though because I love all of their songs okay and I can’t listen to them without getting my heart broken. Honestly. Because I love them. These girl groups I only like but 2NE1, let’s not even go there yet.
Hwayugi / A Korean Odyssey: I finally saw episode 9 and harumph, I don’t know, it was easy to watch but at the same time, it wasn’t all that exciting too? I was at the doctor’s, waiting for my appointment, and my doctor was late, so I was able to watch it. I wished I had downloaded more Haikyuu!! episodes though because I could have watched that instead of this but this is all I got on my phone.
Buzzcut Love: I forgot to include this in last week’s post! It’s because it’s not on Trakt so I forgot to mark it as watched. Anyway, I didn’t edit my previous post because the two people who’ve seen the post might not see this one if I just edited the post. And I want people to know about this KBS drama special because I’m recommending it! I adore the romance and even though the runtime is short, their emotions and the characters felt lived in and real and I’ve rewatched this one already, that’s how much I like it. Thanks to Laughter in Waikiki for making me notice Kim Jung-hyun. Anyway, Kang Hyeon-jung’s acting reminded me SO MUCH of Kim Seul-gi’s and now since I can’t get a Yoon Doo-joon and Kim Seul-gi reunion, I’m just wishing for a Kim Jung-hyun and Kim Seul-gi pairing. KDrama gods, jebal.
Queen of the Ring: I missed Kim Seul-gi (and her with Doo-joon) SO MUCH that I watched this short drama with her and Ahn Hyo-seop and Yoon So-hee. And, well, I have lots of thoughts about this one so I’ll reserve it for a proper review. But to summarize: Kim Seul-gi is great as always, the others were such snoozefests. The plot was simplistic and I have some qualms about it but overall, I still enjoyed this one. I ended up rewatching Splish Splash Love after watching Queen of the Ring though, even though I just rewatched it PRIOR to watching Queen of the Ring. Hahahuhu Seul-gi x Doo-joon FOREVER.
Haikyuu!!: I LIKE IT. But I’m so slow in watching it. But I already like the dynamics of the characters and I can really see myself loving this show. Saw episodes 2 and 3 and I just want to watch more but I either forget to download them to my phone or just don’t have time to watch. Huhu.
I shared Wanna One‘s photos from High Cut Korea and I also lamented the disbandment of the pre-2011 kpop girl groups I loved. Then I finally reviewed my much-adored Buamdong Revenge Club and even shared the recipe for Hee-soo’s seafood ramyun and my version of it!
