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

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.

KDrama Review: Magic Cellphone + Love for a Thousand More

winner-web-dramas

For this round, I’ll be talking about two Korean web dramas with WINNER members as leads. (I am getting too deep into this fandom.) I’ve seen both on the same week and I can’t promise that I won’t compare their acting abilities. Still, I love both members, okay. My thoughts on these web dramas under the cut!

Film Review: So I Married an Anti-fan (2016) + My Annoying Brother (2016)

exoIt’s an EXO edition for this film review post! There was a night when Lianne and I saw both movies one after the other. She watched for Chanyeol and I was there for Kyungsoo (D.O.). My thoughts on both movies are under the cut!

KDrama Review: Ex-Girlfriend Club

I binged Ex-Girlfriend Club last June (I know, I am very late with writing about what I’ve seen, hence the creation of my weekly round-ups) after reading and getting convinced by javabeans’ review on Dramabeans. It was a low-commitment series, with only 12 episodes. It’s also available on iflix so it was easily accessible. So how was it? My thoughts on the show under the cut!

Checking in on: Strongest Deliveryman Episodes 1-12

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 “Checking in on: Strongest Deliveryman Episodes 1-12”
