I know what you’re probably thinking… two blog posts in one week!? Is she sick!? Is she dying!? Alas the answer is no… I’m just incredibly bored and have a wealth of time. And to take advantage of that time to my best abilities, I decided to take a break from watching Chinese Drama Boss and Me interspersed with Harry Potter fanvids to update you on a recent film I watched called Train to Busan! Beware… spoilers ahead!
Hello everyone! I know it’s been a ridiculously long time since I last wrote… What’s new, am I right? I could give you my typical excuses or I could just accept the inevitable, I am incredibly lazy and spectacular at putting things off.
However… one plus of my radio silence is that I have a looooot of things I want to talk about. The list goes on and on in terms of what I’ve been watching over the past couple of months, but the MOST PRESSING is… unsurprisingly… the drama that has already sparked so much conversation – W: Two Worlds.
Hello everyone! And Happy New Year! I know it’s nearly February already but as per usual I’ve been busy with life and all the messy intricacies that come along with it, so I haven’t gotten around to writing anything. But last night I (finally) finished the ridiculously long drama Reply 1988, so I decided to churn out a quick post about it – and specifically about the adorable OTP of Taek and Deok Sun. If you haven’t noticed from the title, this will be spoiler heavy!
So I promised to try and post more regularly… and I’m kind of doing it! Sort of! I’m currently swamped with work and interviews and life in general, so this is going to be a short catch-up post about what I’m watching right now.
First of all, possibly one of my new favorite dramas ever, the most amazing Flower Boy Next Door.
Pardon the slightly cliche title for this post, but it is actually quite fitting. I realize that in my last post I said I’d do a review of Rich Man Poor Woman, but I’ve decided to put that off at present. Why, you ask me? Well, for the simple reason that this morning, I finished watching Answer Me 1997 (also known as Reply 1997). I briefly discussed that drama in my last post as well, but after finishing it, I need to discuss it and something its perfection made me start thinking about.
I sincerely apologize about having not posted for so long. However, as a fourth year university student, currently writing my dissertation, I’ve had to deal with a massive increase in work. On top of that, I’ve been traveling and my laptop broke for a while, so all in all, it was lucky for me to even be able to get online to check my e-mail, let alone write a blog post.
Unfortunately, I’m not writing a full post right now. However, this is a promise post that this week, when I get the time (and unfortunately it might not even be til Saturday), I will write a full one. However, it will be a bit of a catch up, to let you guys know where I’m standing! Recently I’ve been finishing up two dramas that have been absolute pleasures to watch. One is a kdrama, and the other a jdrama, and both are absolutely amazing, and should be given a chance by everyone.
Firstly, the Kdrama, Answer Me 1997, or alternately known as Reply 1997.
So I was about to start making my Favorite KActors: male edition post when I realized it would take way too long (there are just too many for me to pick from). It’s already 11 pm, and I want to go to bed early tonight, so instead I’m just going to do another short little post on what my current Korean and Japanese Drama list looks like. It’ll be an update with shows I’ve finished watching, am watching, need to start watching, and look forward to watching!
This isn’t a recap or review post. Instead I just wanted to pause and appreciate the awesome that is Shut Up Flower Boy Band. I’m really late in coming to this show. It’s been out for months, and has been on my “to watch” list since I read the recap of the first episode over at dramabeans. However, for some reason, I kept forgetting to start it until this week. After watching White Christmas, my love for Sung Joon was sparked into full gear, and when I looked him up, I saw he was in SUFBB with Lee Min Ki, who is one of my all time favorite Korean actors. So, after a small amount of denial, and a couple of hours spent watching fanvids, I gave in and watched the first episode.
Given the fact this blog is brand-smacking new, I’m still trying to decide what to do with it. As I’m a huge lover of Korean dramas, I’ve always thought about doing reviews or recaps of them. As of now, I don’t have the time nor the patience to actually recap a full series, and I don’t want to commit this blog to one genre exclusively, so I’ll just start with reviews. Recently I’ve watched a spectacular show, so I am very excited to dedicate my first real post to a review of the 2011 Korean drama White Christmas. I actually only got turned onto it three days ago, when I was surfing dramabeans’ website and came across Heads No.2’s recap of the first episode of this drama (which I’ve linked below in case anyone wants an in depth, episode by episode recap rather than one long summary). This post will be a spoiler-full summary with my thoughts on the show. I warn you now: if you haven’t seen the show and don’t want to know major plot points, do not read this post!
