Happy Holidays! I spent the better portion of my last Friday night of fall quarter knee-deep in a sea of emotions elicited from currently-airing Korean drama, Valid Love. Having steered away from any spoilers of the show over the past two weeks (thank goodness), I went into the show blind and halfway through the … More The Strange Case of Valid Love: Deliciously Sinful & Stirringly Evocative.
Like other drama-bloggers who (maybe) juggle between Twitter and their blogs, I find myself sharing opinions about shows I’m watching via multiple 140-character quick blurbs.

This is actually my one (rare) free weekend, so I’ve been catching up on things I’ve meant to get to, like write a bunch of stuff both personal and drama-related. I also caught up with my Asian dramas and figured I’d (finally) come up with a two-in-one first impression of Tomorrow’s Cantabile and Liar Game, otherwise known … More From Japan to Korea: First Impressions on Tomorrow’s Cantabile & Liar Game.
Objectively speaking, I am not sure if I really want Yeo Reum to end up with Tae Ha because five years in a relationship is indeed a long time, but five years since the relationship ended is an equally significant time frame. Plus, if she insists and really believes that she is firmly grounded to the … More Discovery of Love, Part II: Thoughts on the Leading Characters.

Lots to discuss, isn’t it? I can’t speak enough about how ridiculously excited I was when casting was … More Discovery of Love, Part I: Thoughts on The Writing etc.
…and for the life of me, I can’t form coherent words to try to express what I feel about seeing Eric Mun and Jung Yu Mi on my screen TOGETHER. In a rom-com. As ex-lovers with loose ends and lots of residual mixed feelings. Where they’re not screaming at each other in every scene they appear … More Timeout: So I Finally Got Around To Watching Discovery of Love…
In an effort to end my drama-watching drought, I returned to my first love: Jdramas. Wakamonotachi 2014 (lit. Young People 2014) – also known as All About My Family – is a remake of 1966’s Fuji TV drama of the same title, and focuses on the staying power of families, specifically by closely examining the intricate relationships of five … More Wakamonotachi 2014 (lit.

So dmohican14 and I have been exchanging thoughts about Roommate since I last pimped it in my most recent Kvariety write-up and that thread of ours is getting pretty lengthy haha that I figured it’s worth dedicating another entry to this show. Consider this a hub-of-sorts to chat about the show if you want to, because I … More Still Lovin’ The Hilarious Hijinks & Bonding Sessions in Kvariety Newbie, Roommate.

Considering I’m wasting my night away tonight, I might as well double-post… Switching gears to talk about In A Good Way, which is a show that makes me feel ridiculously happy just thinking about it. I’m now up to episode 18 or 19, and I think I’ve undergone some paradigm shift about some characters and where … More Timeout: Finding Happiness In A Good Way.
