I’m off in the land of far and away, visiting my in-laws in Kentucky. I’ve been having a great visit (my mother-in-law is fixing to fry up some chicken — so it’s been a delicious visit as well) but my k-drama viewing has fallen down to nil. Which means, I’m still waiting to watch the final two episodes of Two Weeks. Which means, I’m just popping in to make a quick report and then flitting right back out again. This is me avoiding spoilers.
Actually — my k-drama viewing fell down to nil all the way back to last week. In a declaration of discipline I’d vowed to not watch another k-drama until I got my “awaiting review” list down. So of course, I watched some j-dramas. (There is always a work around. Always.)
The first was one I just stumbled across. The name was intriguing and the first few minutes were interesting and next thing I knew I was pulled in. Liar Game was fun. More math than I’d expected and I think probably aimed towards a younger audience — but they knew how to work a cliff-hanger.
The second I deliberately sought out. Jandoe of Blogphilic has a lot of lovely lists regarding j-dramas, and one of them is for crackling chemistry and that’s exactly what I was in the mood for… and thus, Pride. Which I adored and which filled with me so much nostalgia — which of course I wasn’t looking for — and (re)introduced me to Kimura Takuya (who is awesomely intense and whom I’d actually seen before in my very first j-drama ever where he played a psycho-killer *insert hockey-player joke here*). And yeah. Basically I loved it and wished it went on forever — though the ending was perfect.
And that was last week in k-dramas! Not much of a week at all as it turns out. I’ll be home at the end of this week and am looking forward to finishing Two Weeks and I think Heirs is due to start and The Queen’s Classroom is still waiting patiently in the wings. So I’m confident my k-drama dance card will easily fill once I’m ready to start dancing.
Until then… delicious, delicious eating!
