Why does Just Between Lovers make me feel so contented? It’s pretty sad at times. I don’t tear up that often anymore, not like I used to anyway, but I had to grab a hanky more than once while watching the last fiew episodes. I’ve seen comments on how people are not feeling the characters, which mystifies me. I’m feeling a bit too much at times. But… I’m that way too, occasionally. There have been many instances when I haven’t felt anything while others went on and on about how wonderful the characters are. Each to their own I guess. We all have our preferences.

I have to confess that my first reaction to reading the recent news about OCN remaking Life on Mars was a horrified “NO WAY!!” Let’s be real here, Korea’s track record with remakes is pretty awful. I don’t want them anywhere near this show. And it’s the Overly Cruel Network to boot. Ottokke! Continue reading
I really wasn’t planing on leaving this to the last day of the year, but as so often this year RL got in the way.
Looking back at Drama Year 2017, it feels like I didn’t watch that many things, but turns out I actually finished 21 kdramas, plus a couple of cdramas as well.

That said, there were couple of truly wonderful shows and some very good ones in the mix, as well as fiew nice surprises. Continue reading
Overshadowed by more popular, but not necessarily better dramas, The Package flew under the radar for most. Probably because the cast doesn’t have any “crowd pleasers” and the premise sounds like it would be your typical light fluff, padded with some touristy advertising for France. Well, turned out it actually has substance and those who watched the drama were pleasantly surprised. Continue reading
I give up. Guess I’m going to make this a regular feature with a category and all. *g* There are times when I really want to blather about music, so… Continue reading
I recently did some digging in my old LJ account to find something I’d written about an older drama and thus came across couple of old posts that I thought might merit a re-posting. Here’s the first one. Written when I was still a relateive noob and had stamina to marathon dramas. 🙂
I think people have been waiting what feels like hundred years for this. 😀 I remember being all impressed with the trailers and occasional production photos released early 2016. Sometimes it can take years for cdramas to get an air date, so Tribes & Empires actually came out pretty fast. Considering it’s a huge production with plenty of cgi, locasion shoots and a very large cast. Continue reading
