KDrama Review: Strong Woman Do Bong-soon

strongwoman1

After finishing Strong Woman Do Bong-soon, ​I knew it wouldn’t be difficult for me to wax a thousand words or so for the show and here are words, hopefully enough to convey how much I adored this show (whilst still seeing its flaws). It wasn’t difficult but I needed to find time to convert the thoughts and feelings I had in the form of chemicals to a collection of words that would make sense. Go under the cut if you want to read about the show! (Also, this draft has been sitting for a long time in here so I just wanted to be done with it! Sorry if it took so long for my promised review back then!)

JDrama Review: Ito-kun A to E [The Many Faces of Ito]

In my neverending quest to watch everything Okada Masaki is in ever, I’ve come across the jdrama Ito-kun A to E. I was intrigued by it because he’s in the film of the same name scheduled to premiere in 2018. When I discovered the existence of said drama, it hasn’t aired yet and so I filed it in my mental list of Okada Masaki dramas to watch.

Then early last week, while I was casually checking Netflix for their newly added shows, I saw The Many Faces of Ito. I thought it sounded familiar and as I was always desperate for good jdramas to watch, I checked it out and lo and behold, it’s Ito-kun A to E! So I immediately queued up the first episode. And finished the entire drama in less than a 24-hour period despite a hectic work day, forgoing sleep because who needs sleep? Detailed thoughts on this wonderful drama below the cut!

KDrama Review: Falsify

With the aim to review every kdrama that I’ve seen this year, here’s the review for Falsify! I’ve pretty much talked about it during my weekly round-ups so this will be just elaborating points I’ve brought up then into a hopefully more cohesive review. Go under the cut for my thoughts on Namgoong Min’s second drama this 2017!

KDrama Review: Strongest Deliveryman

This post has been long overdue but I’m trying to post reviews of every kdrama I’ve seen this year before the year ends and I just need to let this draft go! Anyway, my thoughts on the last thirds of this show under the cut! (By the way, I’ll be dropping spoilers in this so if you haven’t seen the show, please be careful in reading. I’ve included spoiler “tags” so just scroll down really fast! Hahaha.)

KDrama Review: Last Minute Romance + A Person You Could Know [Someone You Might Know]

last-minute-romance-korea-2017-tile

With no deliberate planning on my part, I was able to watch two web dramas last week! Coincidentally, they are both from JTBC and star actresses that were former idols. Surprisingly, they are both so good too! A lot of web dramas I’ve seen are okay but that’s because I lower my standards for web dramas. Due to the short runtime, I don’t expect full characters or very moving plots, but lo and behold, I’ve seen TWO just this week that exceeded those middling expectations. I’m very happy and smug and content about my life choices last week. Heh. Go under the cut to read more on my thoughts on Last Minute Romance and A Person You Could Know!

Checking in on: Buamdong Revenge Club [Avengers Social Club] Episodes 1-4

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 →

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: This Life is Our First [Because This is My First Life]

because-this-is-my-first-life-poster4

Since Falsify ended, I haven’t had a Monday-Tuesday kdrama yet. I know, I’ve seen Lingerie Girls’ Generation in the interim but I made the grave mistake of not following it week per week and just binged it the weekend before finale week. So I couldn’t say that I’ve followed that drama. But that’s gonna change right here because whatever happens, whether it’s good or bad or middling, I’m gonna livewatch (and even livestream) This Life is Our First [Because This is My First Life]. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been sharing its promotional materials and I even made a Youtube playlist of everything tvN releases about it. I AM SO READY FOR THIS SHOW. (Spoiler alert: I’m hooked!) [Also, this post has been long overdue. It was supposed to be up two weeks ago but I got so busy with my SoKor trip cramming for the itinerary that I wasn’t able to blog anymore. Gah. Sorry for being me. Hahaha!]

Belated Happy Birthday, Yoo Ah-in! | Film Review: Veteran (2015) + The Throne (2015)

yaiIt was Yoo Ah-in’s birthday last Friday so I thought of finally reviewing these two movies of his that I’ve seen. I’ve loved Yoo Ah-in since 2010, when he made everyone suffer from Second Lead Syndrome in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. I was even a contributor for one of his international fan sites. (I tend to be obsessive, okay.) BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OPPA!!! (Forgive me for being late. Huhu. This was supposed to be posted last Friday but I got so busy and I wasn’t able to finish the reviews.)

Premiere Watch: While You Were Sleeping

whileyouweresleeping-poster1

THIS IS SO NOT PART OF MY PLAN! I wasn’t supposed to watch While You Were Sleeping. For one, I am not a big fan of Lee Jong-seok. Don’t brick me, I think he’s a good actor but I’m not following each and every project he makes. Second, Suzy. We all know she isn’t a talented actress so I don’t exactly look forward to her dramas. And lastly, I gave it a chance and checked out the teasers and the trailer but I wasn’t enticed by them. So I was set to pass on this one. But here I am, telling you my thoughts on While You Were Sleeping‘s premiere week. Life is indeed full of surprises.
