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. Yeah, that was surprising. 😀 What is not surprising is that most of them didn’t make much of an impression, ha. I was reading through the list of this year’s kdramas and frequently going “oh wait, I did watch this one 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
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
Reading through the posts @ Dramabeans this past week, it seems like Drama Slump™ is an epidemic within the intl drama community. So… apparently I wasn’t the only one. I’ve of course had the Drama Drought going for several years now but it’s only recently that I’ve arrived in the Slump territory. Continue reading
Yes, I’m still watching stuff, only in a much slower pace than I used to. Which means I’m not always up to date with the currently airing dramas. I also tend to quit some of ’em at the drop of a hat. 🙂
Some thoughts on what I have watched recently, under the cut.
Oh my, this looks kinda epic. 😮
It’s going to be gzillion episodes though. Well, I’ll give it a go anyway, once it’s airing… whenever that may be. 🙂
Life is still sort of busy but I have found time to cram in some drama watching too. I just haven’t felt particularly inspired to write about them. In fact I seem to have spent unpropotionally many hours reading what other people think about the said dramas, LOL! The Problematic of the Unproblematic seems to have become The Place to park myself at, as the ladies there are recapping several of the cdramas I’ve recently watched or that are currently on my roster. I’m also throughly enjoying my “re-watch” of our delish Wingkind Emperor & Co through the recaps of Novoland. Ah, Zhan Ryo Yun – why so fine.^^
I don’t know if it’s due to a somewhat sombre patch I’m going through in RL or just that I’ve the reached the sturation point for ‘gritty’, but I’ve not been in the mood for anything too heavy or dark lately. I don’t seem to be capable of watching stuff that demands any brain power or is too serious either. This has effectively pushed dramas like Defendant or Voice to the sidelines. I’ve been having this totally uncommon craving for lighthearted fun and fluff, not my go to drama specs by a long shot. 🙂 Even a fantasy adventure like Candle in the Tomb seems to fit the bill. Things like leaps of logic, plotholes, inconsistences etc are no obstacles atm. Just as long as the drama leaves me feeling contented and happy I don’t mind. Strange.
