Thoughts On: The Package

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

A dig into the archives – 2010

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophesy

I think people have been waiting what feels like hundred years for this. ๐Ÿ˜€ I remember being all impressed with the trailers and occasional production photos released early 2016.

Forest of Secrets – Final Thoughts

I’m hesitating to call Forest of Secrets a masterpiece, as what show is truly flawless, but FoS sure comes awfully close. I finally had the time to finish it and I’m still basking in this warm glow of having watched something truly good. If I was someone more atuned to critiquing TV shows, I’d probaly find things to nitpic… luckily I’m not. FoS is the best kdrama I’ve seen in years and very likely the best Korean crime show I’ve ever watched. My hat off to the whole team, who gave us something so grounded and well executed. Even though some of the actors may have featured more prominently, mostly due to their character’s placing in the story, FoS is truly a group effort. Everyone was pulling their weight, equally.
