KDrama Review: Let’s Eat

letseat001_zps86074611

Today, I will be reviewing Let’s Eat, which I found so delightful. I got so obsessed with Let’s Eat that I finished this show in a week, despite being super busy with work. I’ve been sleeping less just so I can watch JUST. ONE. MORE. EPISODE. And now that time has passed since I finished it, I find that the more that I think about it, the more I love it? I wanna relieve it and rewatch it and when I go back to Seoul, I wanna visit the places they ate at. Now, I’m gonna profess my love for this show so I might get all fangirl-y in here. You’ve been warned!

Weekly Round-up (26): February 26 – March 18, 2018

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! (Three weeks worth because I barely had a life prior to the past week!)

Checking in on: That Man, Oh Soo [Evergreen] Episodes 2-4

Ohmygod, I don’t even know myself anymore. That Man, Oh Soo is not a great drama, not by a long shot. But why do I find it so easy to watch? Seriously, I was shocked at the end of the second episode that it’s over and I didn’t find it boring or I didn’t have the itch to fast-forward the show. WHAT SORCERY IS THIS? HAVE I BEEN DRINKING THAT MAGIC POLLEN? I saw the second, third, and fourth episode all in one go so what does that say about the show? Or about me? Hahaha! Anyway, my thoughts on the show after the cut! Continue reading →

KDrama Review: Queen of the Ring

For today, I will be reviewing the 2017 drama special Queen of the Ring, starring Kim Seul-gi and Ahn Hyo-seop. I ended up watching this after one of my rewatches of Splish Splash Love and I just needed more Kim Seul-gi. I MISS HER DEARLY. I want her to headline a drama so badly but I know that seems unlikely. But how about a second female lead with her own loveline? Like Go Won-hee in Strongest Deliveryman? Or being cast in an ensemble drama like Laughter in Waikiki? I JUST WANT HER ON MY SCREEN IN A MEATY ROLE, KDRAMA GODS, JEBAL. Anyway, I’m getting off-topic so check out my review under the cut!

Premiere Watch: That Man, Oh Soo [Evergreen]

tumblr_p50pa6dglm1qjvc0co4_r1_1280
HAHAHA what is with this poster? It looks like Lee Jong-hyun is all too happy to serve his customers laced drinks which killed them, while he has Kim So-eun and Kang Tae-oh as accomplices who just share a cup of coffee by the side. And that is why I used this much more interesting poster instead of the basic ones which focused on Jong-hyun and So-eun. Hahaha! Anyway, I wish I could recap with all the works for even just the first episode for you since Dramabeans doesn’t have it. But I honestly do not have the time. I’m just taking a not-so-quick break from my thesis time. So this time around, I’ll only share my thoughts on the first episode. Read on for more! Continue reading →

[One True Pairings] When love doesn’t cure all

So I submitted this one for Dramabeans’ February Theme of the Month about OTPs but I crammed it and felt like it really wouldn’t see the light of day. It was almost incoherent and repetitive. It was so uninspired. But still, I figured I should just post it here on my blog because I still haven’t talked about Individualist Ms. Ji-young as much as I would like to in here. (It’s harder for me to talk about things that I love because I feel like words would never be enough to heap it praises.) Anyway, so forgive me for the quality of this post and lezgirit!

Weekly Round-up (24): February 12 – 18, 2018

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.

Cooking with KDramas (1): Seafood Ramyun in Buamdong Revenge Club

New feature alert! If you must know, I almost always cook everything that I eat since I’m living in an apartment with my sister in the city during weekdays to be closer to work. It’s so expensive to eat out and ever since I started watching my weight, it’s just so much easier to count calories (or fake count exact calories since I stopped because it took so much of my time) when you cook your own food. My sister used to help cook but these days, it’s all me. Although I’m not too mad about it because I like to cook! Although I’m not entirely good at it. I’m kind of afraid of salt and I don’t have the patience to make the dish super tasty. “Season to your taste” is my nemesis. Hahaha!

Anyway, I’m getting off tangent. So the thing is, a lot of kdramas feature mouthwatering food and I almost always crave whatever they’re having. So the same week or the week after, I end up cooking what I saw to sate my cravings. And I thought, why not share it on my blog! So this feature would share whatever I cooked because of a kdrama and if possible, the recipe too. I’m still lazy as fuck in taking ~instagram-worthy~ photos of my food so please bear with me.

And the pilot food/recipe is the seafood ramyun in Buamdong Revenge Club as cooked by the character Hee-soo! Continue reading →

KDrama Review: Buamdong Revenge Club [Avengers Social Club]

I feel like I’ve already talked too much about this drama but then I realize that I didn’t talk about it here but in Dramabeans. Heh. So I’m rectifying things around this block and I’m finally reviewing this adorable and heartwarming show. Go under the cut for my review! Continue reading →
