Drama Grab Bag


Well, I’m back. Sort of. I still don’t have much time for blogging nor all that much incentive either, but I’m watching stuff and I actually found it in me to write one of these again. 😄 So, I guess things are moving to the right direction… Continue reading

Encore – Here’s to new beginnings!

For someone who’s not an Aghase I sure post a lot about GOT7 but in my 10+ years of following kpop, they are the only group whose music truly speaks to me. I do like them as a group too, there’s just something about them that feels so organic and wholesome. 😀 Anyway, when they said that they are not going anywhere, they really ment it. To everyone’s surprise GOT7 just dropped a new song, totally out of the blue. Even cynical olde me got tears in her eyes watching the video. 🙂

Farewell GOT7 and thanks for the swell times

I knew that GOT7’s exclusive contract with JYPE was up but somehow I had not internalised that it would actually be right now, ha. I don’t follow my faves outside promotions which means I don’t follow any fandom content either, I just don’t have the time for that $hit anymore. Otherwise I would have been more aware of the situation at hand. I knew of course that the chances of them re-signing were pretty slim, so the news didn’t come as any sort of surprise. Can’t deny that I’m a bit sad though. It’s another end of an era for me. Continue reading

Drama Year 2020

This has been a difficult drama year for me. I’ve struggled watching dramas and struggled even more trying to write about them. Which is why the “cold winds of no content” has been blowing through this blog for most of the year. The state of the world has probably had something to do with how things stand but mostly I believe it’s just overall, persistent drama fatigue. Which is why I’m probably going to take some time off from the blog and dramas, as both have sort of started to feel like a chore, something I have to do insted of something I enjoy doing. I may still keep tabs at what my blogging pals are doing and even comment if the mood strikes. 🙂

Thoughts On: Cross Fire

I guess that in a sense Cross Fire / 穿越火线 is like most sports themed shows/movies. It’s an underdog story. In fact it’s an underdog story times two. I’ve watched several and I tend to like them, depending on how engeaging the story is and how likeable the characters are. Cross Fire ticks all the positive boxes for me and there’s very little to grumble about. It made me feel warm and fuzzy. These days the shows that even register enough for some after episode musings are far and wide apart. It’s always a pleasant surprise when I come across one that I actually want to write about. Especially as I can never be sure which ones turn out to be those, ha. There have been some decidedly odd ducks among them. 😀

Who’s your last piece?

Yes, I know, I know. I ‘m MIA for months and then out pops another kpop post. But, but… it’s GOT7! 😀 And their new album is great! Color me surprised when I realised I can buy it here (It is kinda pricey though, but I don’t purchase physical albums very often these days). There are now so many hoops you have to jump through to buy anything from outside of EU.

Drama Grab Bag

Goodness, it has been quite a while since my last post! It’s not like don’t have any dramas to watch but rather I’ve had heck of a time trying to press ‘play’. It’s been a real struggle. Thus there hasn’t been much material to write about. Well, there are other factors too but I’m not going to go into that right now. Anyways, this post has been in the making for a loooong time and I’m SO glad I can finally publish something.^^

Thoughts On: Ancient Detective

I’m still making no headway with the kdramas on my roster. Neither is anything on The List of Doom beaconing enticingly. So when AvenueX’s review on Ancient Detective popped up on my YT suggestions, I took that as a sign to watch the drama, ha. I’d already had my interest piqued after reading some postive comments earlier on and had Drama lined up for a looksee.

A.C.E ~ Being vocal aces :)

I have always loved the fact that all of the members of A.C.E are vocalists, even the rappers. Well, the vocalists can rap too, so… 🙂 They all have a slightly different vocal color, which blend nicely to make a lovely, harmonious whole. It’s a pity that A.C.E is still rather underrated, but here are just too many groups around these days. It’s hard to get ahead no matter how good you are, especially if the group is from a smaller company.

Anyways, the vocal line of A.C.E just released a lovely ballad as part of producer Hong Chang Woo’s music project and they promoted it in couple of music shows. An additional way to get the group some recognition. Continue reading
