There has been a serious gap between posts around here. Almost a full week, people! And within that time period, zero dramas have been watched by me. Insane, right? I’ve honestly been that busy. Fortunately, not in a Sisyphus at his rock kind of way; every push at the boulder brings some progress. But it’s all been very mind-sapping and I just haven’t had the attention-span necessary for even the most frivolous of dramas.
I can’t think of a time I’ve gone this long without blogging or drama-watching. Not while still at home and in possession of a working internet. So it’s been a bit strange and I’ve made a couple of observations. Continue reading
Secret Love Affair is still on-going, so I am still clutched tight in its over-heated grip and loving every minute of it. (I am so thrilled for Yoo Ah-in, by the way. That his last drama before Military Duty is such a gooder, and that his acting is being so well remarked on. It makes me a very happy fan-girl.)
But! Other dramas do exist and I shall babble on about a couple of them now. Continue reading
I will admit it. My drama-watching life has been almost fully engulfed by the awesomeness that is Secret Love Affair. But “almost” is the key word here. Other things are ticking along.
[No spoilers at all!]
My drama-watching has been hi-jacked by Secret Love Affair and I love it! I’m constantly thinking about the episodes I’ve just seen, anticipating the episodes to come, haunting the places where people share my obsession… So. Much. Fun! I adore being this all-in on something. [No spoilers!] Continue reading
The check-in post is back! And on time even! I’m getting a warm feeling of accomplishment. Like me and the universe are finally back in synch. Bring on the week!
No seriously — bring on the week. The next episodes of Secret Love Affair needs to get here now. Continue reading
Late again! I officially declare Monday a part of the weekend — problem solved. We shall speak of this no more!
On to more interesting stuff. So I finished watching both Miss Korea and I Need Romance 3 this week. (Which means my to-be-reviewed list has exploded and I need to get right on that before it gets daunting.) But it also got me thinking. Because one of those dramas tackled a thought-provoking subject with intelligence and grace and humor. And the other one revealed just how skinny Sung Joon actually is. Continue reading
I meant to get this out yesterday but then got into a Liebster mood and decide to let that particular bull run while it had its wind. So a day late with my big, huge (alright, alright — more technical and boring) news! I have completed the widgets lining up my sidebar! (Well… mostly. They are the kind of things that beg to be tinkered with, and I do like to tinker.) Continue reading
Hurray for marathons! My drama-viewing this week was very staid and healthy. I watched all of Aftermath. (A drama with really short episodes — about 8 minutes or so — and maybe ninety minutes long, total. Especially when you take out all the closing credits.) And I managed to keep up with I Need Romance 3. But, then! Yesterday, I was able to dive back into Miss Korea — which had been languishing in “I need to get back to you” land — and watched all the way up the halfway point! It was delicious. Continue reading
Seriously. So busy. Not in a bad way — things are getting done. But the past month has been stuffed full and this month hasn’t been much better… It’s kind of amazing I’ve posted at all, honestly.
I say “amazing,” but in a weird way, having my off-line life so filled to the gills has made me more efficient in cranking out posts. I started this blog partially to prove to myself I had the discipline to write regularly. And I don’t want to prove myself wrong, darn it! So the postings have continued.
But there has been a price. Continue reading
There are two ways, I’ve realized, that I drop a drama. One is very dramatic and impossible to miss. The story has managed to make me mad, it’s not worth the emotional toil involved, I declare, “I am done with you!” and there you have it. The drama is dropped. Level 7 Civil Servant was felled by that sword. So was You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin.
Then there’s the second way. Continue reading
