If only networks could pace the amount of good dramas to broadcast, my Kdrama viewing life would be set. However, we know that shall never happen on a consistent basis 🙂
So, on a rather quiet evening, I perused the backlog of dramas that have premiered but didn’t get a chance to watch (and assess its worthiness to invest my time). I saw Misty, with one of my fave actors, Ji Jin Hee, in the lead role.
OK, this could be promising…
A couple of months back, it was such barren KDrama-land for me as I struggled to get hooked on a drama… any Kdrama 😩 When I catch myself watching TV series that are not produced in South Korea, I’ve scraped the bottom of the Kdrama barrel.
My instincts told me, it was an impending sign of a major deluge, of a fabulous kind.
I was Right. And I’m in Big Trouble 😱
I need this thingamajig NOW! 지금!!
Allow me to begin my entry with the iconic sound-effect from Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo:
Say it ain’t so! Andwae!!
One of my favourite shipped-to-life couples, Nam Joo Hyuk & Lee Sung Kyung, have parted ways. I was just re-watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo this past week, inhaling the love and re-living those moments when they indeed fell in love with each other. Of course they inserted that standard template of an excuse for the falling out, but they are young, and have so much more to experience too.
JiJi couple, you’re my only hope (at the moment) for yet another reel to real-ship.
Maybe I should re-watch a classic like Coffee Prince or Secret Affair, because there’s no way in heck those OTPs are gonna get on board the cruise line 😆
Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! 😄
Extending the shout-out in case you missed out on these gorgeous videos ❤ ❤ ❤ …

I just HAD to say something about this little dynamo that can hold its own against The Legend of the Blue Sea.
While many viewers were anticipating the premiere of Lee Min Ho’s latest drama, a few of us tuned in to Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo mostly out of curiosity. Well, maybe not so for Nam Joo Hyuk’s die-hard fans, but we’re talking about David & Goliath proportions when these two dramas were pitted against each other in the Wed-Thurs prime time slot.
As I watched Lee Sung Kyung’s character transformation (from Bee-yotch Doctor in Doctors to No-nonsense Athlete in WFKBJ) in Episode 1, I had a feeling this could be her defining moment as an actor.
This has been one of those “Catch-Up” Weekends for me, drama-wise. Come Monday, my brain will switch gears to “where did all that time go?”
When realization hit on Saturday morning that I had Mirror of the Witch, 38 Task Force, The Flower in the prison, Beautiful Gong Shim to sink my mental teeth into just for the weekend, I felt a sudden tide of bliss. YAASSSS!!
Weekdays are meant for Doctors, Beautiful Mind (an under-rated drama, IMHO), Lucky Romance and Uncontrollably Fond. I know. Squeezing in KDrama during weekdays in between Real-life tasks is an art form ^_^
However, there is one newbie who flew in under the radar and has all the interstellar potential to knock a few Home Runs during its run: The Good Wife.
And no site (that I know of) is SUBBING this Gem 😦
Unless you know of a site that does English-subbing regardless of on-air grabbage factor.
Let me know, STAT! ❤
In the meantime, this is me waddling through my limited understanding of Hangeul while watching The Good Wife:
Have a blast of a weekend, peeps! 😀
KDrama Gods have answered my prayers!
The Good Wife has been subbed! YAAAASSSS!!! XD
