Premiere Watch: Laughter in Waikiki (Episode 1 Recap)

I wasn’t THAT interested in Laughter in Waikiki when it was first announced. Probably because I haven’t seen School 2017 or Age of Youth so most of the male actors didn’t particularly rouse me to take note of it. (And Lee Yi-kyung was funny in Go Back Spouses but I wasn’t about to watch a show solely for him.) But as promos trickled in and photos of Go Won-hee (Strongest Deliveryman) surfaced, I found myself suddenly getting curious and excited. The final nail to the coffin was when I watched the six-minute trailer unsubbed, understanding nothing, yet so ready for what the show would give me. So here I am. Read on for a recap on what happened in episode 1 and my thoughts on the premiere! (Gifs by rinny at Dramabeans! Thank you so much for allowing me to use them!)

Premiere Watch: Meloholic (Episode 1 Recap)

melo-holic-2

I don’t know why I’m doing this. I saw people who’ve watched it and thought it was pretty okay/good so naturally I got curious and then I figured why not provide the ~gap~ in the community and recap the first episode for all those people who are curious whether to watch it or not too. Hope this helps!

Premiere Watch: Manhole (Episode 1 Recap)

I’ve been pretty vocal about my excitement for Manhole and IT’S FINALLY HERE! Manhole premiered yesterday and unsurprisingly, was at the last of the ratings race. I do hope it fares better as the weeks go by as I liked what I saw and I’m excited for all the hijinks. I ended up not being able to follow Reunited Worlds week by week as originally planned so my Wed-Thu kdrama slot is actually free. Would Manhole make the cut? Let’s see!

Premiere Watch: Falsify (Episodes 1-2 Recap)

No rest for the wicked(ly talented) Namgoong Min as he’s on his second headlining drama this 2017 with Falsify, which premiered yesterday and led the race ratings-wise. Despite premiering a week later than its competitors, Falsify got double the ratings. I don’t know if it’s the Namgoong Min magic, as his previous drama Chief Kim was also a hit in Korea, or if the audience just wants to tune in to a drama about journalists fighting off corruption, or this star-studded ensemble cast. Either way, I’m curious to see if Falsify lives up to its ratings. Let’s check it out! Continue reading →

Premiere Watch: Man Who Dies to Live (Episodes 1-2 Recap)

Maybe it’s me overcompensating with my Wednesday and Thursday freeing up now that Suspicious Partner is over (*mourns forever*) but I can’t help it, both new shows in the Wed-Thu line-up interested me enough to garner checking them out. I posted a recap and my thoughts on the premiere of Reunited Worlds (linked) earlier and now I’m doing the same for Man Who Dies to Live. I already picked up a new show in Reunited Worlds. Will Man Who Dies to Live make the cut? Read on. Continue reading →

Premiere Watch: Reunited Worlds (Episodes 1-2 Recap)

Yesterday saw the premiere of Reunited Worlds, the newest drama from SBS this week, which replaced Suspicious Partner on its Wednesday-Thursday line-up. I’m here to weigh in on the first hour and judge it to determine if I’m going to continue on with it week per week or binge it near the end or completely pass on it. We’ll see. Continue reading →

Premiere Watch: My Secret Romance (Episode 1 Recap)

Sung Hoon with a cat, I can’t deal

Heya! I’m trying my hand on this recapping biz again. Sorry if this is weeks late though. Hope you’d still appreciate it and fangirl with me. Also, if I get lazy as I get through this post, it just might turn into an opinion-cap and not a detailed recap. We’ll see. Here goes!

Recap: Baby-Faced Beauty Episode 6

Photobucket

We can see the love sparks between Jin-wook and So-young in this episode! The two seem to worry about each other beyond what normal friends and co-workers do and they’re getting more comfortable with each other. I love this stage in a love story, the creeping awareness of that someone’s presence and how that someone affects you more than what you’d allow yourself. We also see many jealous facets of Jin-wook. Jealous Jin-wook, for the win! BABY-FACED BEAUTY Episode 6 >>

Recap: Baby-Faced Beauty Episode 5

Photobucket

Hey, guys! This has been sitting in my drafts for so long. I was supposed to recap Baby-Faced Beauty for Dramabeans but then I wasn’t able to because of school. I became so busy that I wasn’t able to do the recaps on time. I’ve done recaps until episode 7 and I don’t think I can finish the full drama. So I’m just posting episodes 5 to 7 since they’ll just be rotting here so better to let the world see. And if ever someone reads this, maybe s/he will be interested in BFB, or better yet, kdramas, and watch the show or more dramas. So, enjoy!
