Drama Addict Diary: Youthful Indiscretions, Do-Overs and the Unbearable Chemistry of LUCA

I’m delighted to join Saya in her foray into diary-writing (is this a support group now?), which like Mi-joo in Run On, I haven't done for many years. But it's a super fun way for us to keep up with what we’re watching in between Yaks. We’re already covering Sisyphus week to week, so I… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Youthful Indiscretions, Do-Overs and the Unbearable Chemistry of LUCA

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 2 Review

I spent most of Episode 1 more confused than anything else, and with SO MANY QUESTIONS. We did get a few answers this hour, although they mostly led to more questions, but hey, it’s premiere week. I’m so glad we jumped into the action instead of having 1000 voiceovers explaining what’s going on. And I… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 2 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 1 Review

Guys I finished the first episode basically in one second (yes that’s a lie, it took me more like two hours) and I will start by saying: YES. Yes yes yes. Yes, give me this show. Yes, I am excited. Yes I am terrified. Yes, I am going to write nonsense and pretend it’s a… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 1 Review

Mr. Queen: Review

Mr. Queen just ended, and I find my head nearly exploding with thoughts, so here’s my manifesto review. I NEED to talk about that ending, but I’ll give my general thoughts on the drama before jumping into spoilers. (A note about pronouns: I’ll refer to Bong-hwan as "he", So-yong as "she", and So-bong, which is… Continue reading Mr. Queen: Review

Drama Addict Diary: Run On (Again), Pride and Prejudice, and K-Pop Novels

I have to do my due diligence and tell you that down below you may find some mild spoilers on the following dramas: Run On (up to ep.10), Pride and Prejudice (ep.7), and The Life of Saya. Of course, I say go ahead and read anyway since I am easily, like, three years behind everyone… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Run On (Again), Pride and Prejudice, and K-Pop Novels

Drama Addict Diary: Uncanny Queens, Uniforms and More Jo Seung-woo

Friends. I think you will regret asking for more of these. It is untidy inside my brain. But with the overwhelming 100% POPULARITY of the last one, I felt like I had to at least let this one out. But don’t go thinking this is regular! I am a woman of limited and finite thoughts,… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Uncanny Queens, Uniforms and More Jo Seung-woo

Drama Addict Diary: Run On, Jo Seung-woo, and the Virtues of Scruff

Drama Addict Diary is back and it's very silly and trivial and full of pictures, even though I did not manage to stick in that one Lee Jun-ki one that I can't seem to let go of. This is a highly untidy version of what's been going on for me lately in drama-watching-land, and it's… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Run On, Jo Seung-woo, and the Virtues of Scruff

Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 7-12 Review

We're still loving this drama, so Paroma and I sat down to enumerate the many ways we keep falling for Joon, Ra-ra, and the gang. Do Do might seem lightweight at first glance, but it's actually surprisingly thoughtful, and does a great job of balancing its darker elements with the characters' inherent optimism, and the… Continue reading Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol: Episodes 7-12 Review
