TV Review: Memories of the Alhambra (Spoilers!)

Back when I was first getting into Korean dramas, another drama that caught my attention was “You’re Beautiful”.

TV Review: Confession (Spoilers!)

If you have been following this blog for a while, then you would know that 2PM’s Lee Junho has a very special place in my heart as he is the actor/Kpop idol that pushed me back into watching Kdramas and into listening again to Kpop.

TV Review: Mr. Sunshine (Spoilers!)

Historicals, whether it be a drama or a movie, when done right, are powerful motivators for their audience to learn more and appreciate history. Personally, I do have a soft spot for this genre, but when it comes to Kdramas, I have yet to make the deep dive into saeguks or historicals. My gateway to this was the tvN 2017 drama “Chicago Typewriter”, which I … Continue reading TV Review: Mr. Sunshine (Spoilers!)

TV Review: Chicago Typewriter (Spoilers!)

Anything that has a unique concept, whether it be science fiction or fantasy, is a soft spot of mine, especially as it is interesting to see how it will be executed as the show goes along. Sometimes, the main concept is just a convenient plot device or falls short of expectations, and sometimes, they manage to pull it off seamlessly. Such is the case with … Continue reading TV Review: Chicago Typewriter (Spoilers!)

TV Review: What’s Wrong w/Secretary Kim? (Spoilers!)

For some, the Korean drama romantic comedy is a genre they’d lap up the instant it  arrives on the docket, but for some, like me, it takes some persuading, and the right timing.

TV Review: Prison Playbook/Wise Prison Life (Kdrama) (Spoilers!)

Dramas and comedies about the justice system are nothing new, with shows tackling subject matters from court room trials to the prison system, and they have their own followings. As for me, I usually go more for crime procedurals and court room dramas, but I decided to take a chance on “Prison Playbook”, as it’s trailer sort of intrigued me, and because it was listed … Continue reading TV Review: Prison Playbook/Wise Prison Life (Kdrama) (Spoilers!)
