Recommended: If you like romance dramas, cute guys & don’t mind a bit of trope

Reason for watching: The poster captured my attention (just look at it) and the plot sounded interesting

Reasons to keep watching: There’s two types of dramas, ones that grab you in from the start and ones that slowly build your love and investment. This is the first type.

Re-watch: I want to but other dramas keep getting in the way!Read More »


Politics IRL

Have you heard what’s going on with the South Korean President Park Geun-hye? It’s sounds like a drama. It could legitimately be a drama. For some reason You’re All Surrounded particularly comes to mind but I don’t remember the drama well enough to put the comparison into words (besides – spoilers).

Update: She’s been impeached and may go to jail like all her other conspirators including “the de facto head of Samsung.” I don’t know what that means but my conspiracy theory is that the exploding Note 7’s came about because they were being lazy with safety laws due to paying off the president. Or it’s just a coincidence.

If you don’t I’ll give you the story off the top of my head. Keep track of all the people involved.

Best of 2016 Dramas

…that I have watched anyway.

The drama world was much better this year! So many dramas are still on my ‘to watch’ list! Although I have struggled to finish even the good ones but I want to! I’ll get around to it eventually… hopefully…

Side note: Who writes up the wiki pages? Do they even watch the dramas? Why do they put the male as the lead when it’s the female etc.Read More »

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥   ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Recommended: If you even remotely like mysteries. This was raved about even though it wasn’t a romance drama, that never happens.

Reason for watching: My husband was making me watch Buzzfeed unsolved murders so I was in the mood for a bit of detective work and remembered Signal was raved about.

Reasons to keep watching: The intrigue! Everyday my husband, who does not watch any tv with me ever, would ask ‘Signal? Can we watch Signal?’ It’s that good.

Re-watch: No, I can’t really watch mystery shows again, I already know the answers.Read More »

List of BTS songs

It’s so hard to find some of those Jap songs, the copyright’s too strong. Why? I think I like the songs The Stars & Wake Up but I can’t find it anymore. WHY!? D’: ….I’m not even allowed to watch For You’s MV what kind of stupidity is this!?

Fav Album: The Most Beautiful Moment in Life/HYYH: Part 2. Every song is so good, I even love the intro which is rap.

2nd fav albums are HYYH: Part 1 & You Never Walk Alone. Notable mentions: Skool Luv Affair & Love Yourself: Her. Young Forever and Face Yourself are compilation albums so it’s kind of cheating.

Note MV’s that link starting from HYYH era: I Need You; Prologue; Run; Young Forever; Wings short films; end of Jap Blood, Sweat & Tears; Love Yourself Highlight Reel; Euphoria. Also [2 & counting?] image texts called ‘The Notes’ from their twitter.

D.O.B.: 9 December 1991         Age: 25

Height: 181cm / 5’11

K-pop: SHINee (2008-)

I love Minho. I’m not into SHINee nor their music, but I love Minho. He’s so cute. I love his adorable smile. I can’t tell if he’s actually a pretty good actor or I’m being biased. He is definitely not a bad one either way.

I need him to be in a good romance drama! Why is he not in one yet!? To The Beautiful You does NOT count. It’s SO bad.

I love his competitiveness, some people find it annoying but I don’t. I love watching him in Running Man and Dream Team. He’s just so cute. Also, them abs.Read More »
