jandoe’s Dramafest Reflection is here again! I’ve a friend who chides me all the friggin’ time for watching Asian dramas (I’ll take it in good spirits but when you imply it’s not okay to watch Asian dramas yet totally acceptable to watch Western dramas – get outta here) that I reflected on just why do I invest so much of myself for Asian dramas … More A 2014 Year-end Dramafest Reflection: For The Unsung Heroes in All of Us!
Okay Mischievous Kiss fans, have you guys watched this latest trailer yet? It sheds (somewhat) greater detail about the new season which by the way – when is it premiering again?
