New K-Drama Alert: She Was Pretty


Am I the only one who has been longing for a new drama cycle? I'm in love with Twenty Again, but every other show on the air right now is making me roll my eyes and yawn at the same time.

I just watched the web series Noble, My Love out of sheer desperation for something fun and mindless (because that's what web series do best). It was both of those things, but it also took every single sexist trope that has ever bothered me in a K-drama male lead and put them into one (admittedly handsome) character. Dear Sung Hoon, if you flatly refuse to wear a shirt, I will happily use it to strangle your domineering character. But I digress.

Speaking of terrible male leads, let's talk about the first entry in the upcoming drama cycle — She Was Pretty.

New Drama Alert: Twenty Again and Yong Pal

We're not dead! (*throws confetti*) Some people are really responsible and good at juggling blogging even when real life throws real life things at you. I am not one of those people, which means that I have a back log of about 15 posts partially written in my mind that may or (more likely) may not actually get written. Sigh. 

On the upside, there's something refreshing about unplugging from dramaland for a bit. Drama watching time has been pretty limited around here, which has made me really selective about the shows I choose. Fortunately, the summer offerings have been excellent so far, so I don't really feel like I'm missing out if I only have time to watch one or two excellent shows (I swear an Oh My Ghostess review is coming next!) instead of four mediocre ones (The Time I Loved You, I'm not at all sad that I dropped you).

New Drama Alert: Oh My Ghostess and The Time I Loved You

I am a solar-powered person, which means that anything and everything related to summer is automatically my favorite. As a result, I also love the light, breezy dramas that generally come out during the summer months.

Coco and I have a slight Mask obsession right now (so ridiculous, but so, so cracktastic), so I only have so many other dramas I can watch in between trying to enjoy as much sunlight as I possibly can before winter sneaks up on me again. Right now, the two options are Oh My Ghostess and The Time I Loved You, but I only have time to watch one. Which will it be?

Ex-Girlfriend Club Korean Drama Review

Ex-Girlfriend Club simultaneously makes me excited and furious to review. Excited because, in spite of going up against some major drama heavyweights, it ended up as my favorite summer series so far. Furious because apparently no one in Korea felt the same way, so dismal ratings cut the series short.

A Breath of Fresh K-drama Air: Angry Mom Korean Drama Review


I thought the premise of Angry Mom sounded terrible, and I didn't want to watch it. By the end of its run, I was obsessively counting down the days until each new episode came out.

The end.

What, that doesn't count as a review? Okay, let's get into it, then.

Remember how I was looking at upcoming dramas and was super duper insanely excited about Divorce Lawyer in Love?

Yeah...me too.
