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 →
I slept at 3:30 AM a while ago even though I had work because I ended up binging the first four episodes of Buamdong Revenge Club, whilst drinking soju too! Hahaha. Anyway, I ended up going to work late but who cares because my heart felt fuller than it was before I got to know these amazing ahjummas and THE KID WHO MADE ME FINALLY ACCEPT THAT I AM A NOONA ALREADY. I know the show is over now and my Checking in on posts were for checking in on currently airing shows but this is my blog and now I’m using it for when I want to talk about a drama’s episodes. Hope you can discuss this amazing show with me! Continue reading →
I’ve seen all available twelve episodes of this show and MY HEART IS SO FULL. I was supposed to write this right away, while my feelings were fresh, but I ended up unable to because MY FEELINGS WERE SO FRESH. Seriously, I was so giddily happy last Thursday and it’s been a long time since I’ve felt that due to a kdrama. (JDramas excluded!) The last was probably during Suspicious Partner. Anyway, I’ve seen all twelve episodes in three days (Tuesday to Thursday) and I’m still too giddy to talk about this one. But I’ll try. My thoughts under the cut! (Needless to say, there will be some spoilers!) Continue reading →
That scene was from the third episode where I ended up howling with laughter, as well as my mom, who only went to my room to escape the Wimbledon Men’s Finals (she was getting anxious) but ended up watching a bit of Father is Strange with me. After seeing this scene, she left the room because she didn’t want to be spoiled because she knew she’ll definitely watch this show. What better way to sell Father is Strange than Lee Joon’s chest, right? Hahaha!
After reading raves after raves of Father is Strange on Dramabeans and learning that the recent episodes were such hits in Korea that they’ve been reaching 30%+ in ratings, I knew I really had to start binging this one. As of writing this post, I’ve seen only up until Episode 10, which I’ve practically binged last weekend. I intend on binging this drama on weekends only, not only to keep up with the ~weekend feel~ but because I also love watching it on our TV’s big screen (well, not really big but at least it’s bigger than my laptop) while lounging in bed. So hopefully next week I’ll have a post for you about the episodes I’ll get into.
Anyway, I planned on writing an episode-by-episode mini-recap but with such a big and connected ensemble cast, I found it hard to start writing them. I don’t even know where to start! Everyone is really connected. So I’ll just write about the characters and comment on them and along the way, their background story will be told. Spoilers will be casually thrown in so proceed at your own risk! (But this is a weekend family drama, who are you kidding, nothing is shocking. Spoilers are no big deals.) Continue reading →
