Played a lot of catch up this week.
Gu Family Book has me worried, as I’ve said — but I’ll keep on watching for the sheer need to know what happens next.
You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin continues to be my comfort food. Though, this week was a little uncomfortable what with several secrets coming out and the emotional fallout that brought. Plus, there were a couple of times characters I didn’t like became the voice of reason so I felt that discomfort that comes when your enemy is suddenly on your side. But as this is all leading towards catharsis and moving on, it’s still my comfy-watch.
And of course, I still adore Jang Ok Jung: Live in Love. Though, a little poke around the internet revealed the blush coming off the rose for others. I read their critiques but I tend to disagree with them.
And now I being to spoil through episode 12…
First the good news. The hair appears fixed. I wouldn’t call it sexy or stunning, but it’s inoffensive and that is beyond good enough as far as this show’s concerned. (I will say, imagining the in-story reasons for all the changes has kept me amused.)
On to the not so good news (so, the bad news? except maybe it’s not? so, the confused news?) I am really, really unsure of where they’re taking Chung-jo’s story. And, as she’s my favorite character and I’d like her story to end happily (or at least, well), I’m getting a tiny bit worried.
Huge spoilers through episode 12 below…
I’m behind on Gu Family Book so I missed the gasp heard round the world (there had to be a collective gasp) – but let me add my own cry of despair. His hair had been unfortunate.
But this is just plain mean. (No Spoilers… but it’s all just too horrible!) Continue reading
…and it will be awesome. Painful and, I strongly suspect, tragic (though, I still hope for some sort of historical sleight of hand to save a tiny bit of the day) but still a story to remember.

One hundred posts, baby!
I love the round figure of it and that there’s three digits and that it means I’ve kept on posting away. Accomplishment! That’s what I feel and I do like that feeling.
Now that the mini-celebration is done — onto this week in drama watching! (Spoilers for “Lee Soon Shin” and “Jung Ok Jung” below.) Continue reading
Existential crisis solved (for now…) — I’m going in!
I watched Playful Kiss (the k-drama version; and one of the first five K-dramas I ever watched ever) a long time ago. Continue reading
Dramafever has been advertising their first ever, live-broadcast, Japanese drama, Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo, for a long long time (weeks! or at least… days! plural!) and the other day I caved to the ad-pressure and it’s pretty marvelous. It’s a retelling of the same popular manga the Korean drama, Playful Kiss, was based on and there is so much I could say about it. Tons even!
Here’s my crisis. Continue reading
