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
Wishing those who celebrate Lunar New Year, “Gong Hey Fatt Choy” !!
This is one of the few moments in a year when I really, REALLY enjoy driving in the city. Why? That’s because the Urban Exodus carried with them the usual grid-lock traffic back to their hometown during this week of festivities. DAEBAK! XD
I’ve been in a quagmire lately, unable to decide which drama to hitch a ride on. So far, the schizophrenic Ji Sung is garnering interest in Kill Me, Heal Me but… still a “hmmm” for me. Heart to Heart definitely has ❤ but only enough for casual viewing. I’m still on the fence with Ho Goo’s Love… though I really Adore the Adorable Choi Woo Shik who definitely has earned his Lead Male role through memorable characters he brought to life in Ten and The Roof Top Prince.
Blood? BWAHAHAHAHA! Let’s not even sink our teeth into that one.
I shall wait for the premiere of Unkind Women which is within 5 days’ time.
Please do not disappoint me 😮
I had to undergo some major recuperation by surfacing for “much-needed clean air” after that mess of a drama coughValidLovecough… Was Kim Do Woo aiming to create an urban classic like Secret Love Affair? There were more than a handful experienced actors who brought other sub-plots to life, like Choi Yeo Jin, who carried the voice of reason when everything else around her was imploding. ❤ the relationship her character had with IR and how her passing on was handled.
And the other beautiful thing in Valid Love was seeing Lee Soo Hyuk growing by leaps and bounds in his role as Carpenter KJ. I have never seen so much emotion coming out of this model-turned actor in a single drama. Good job, Director Han Ji Seung, for helping him break out of his cold-urban-male-who-can’t-help-but-be-cool mold.
The scent of a woman who will turn his life upside down, inside out…
And, about that “much-needed clean air,” I decided to take a whiff of a drama that’s probably on the opposite end of Valid Love where skinship is concerned. Heart to Heart turned out to be unexpectedly entertaining 😀
Seeing how delayed this “Weekend” post is, you know I just came out of a marathon wormhole XD XD
This post may be closing in on the finish line of a weekend, but it still IS Sunday 😀 Yay!
Waiting for Monday with a smidge of trepidation… the vexing and energy-sapping phase in Valid Love is crushing my soul… but I’m hopeful for an unconventional home run. Writer-nim, don’t let millions of us outside of South Korea down 😮
But another Mon-Tues show is giving me all sorts of warm feels and I grin at every screentime Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young share ❤ ❤ ❤
Did a Healer marathon (in some parallel universe) and I was sucked into YET another KDrama wormhole XD XD XD
Dressed up to the nines and went somewhere swanky with close friends to usher in the New Year? Or did you lounge at home in your most comfortable and worn down clothes, catching up on other KDramas that you wouldn’t have time to look into otherwise?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! XD XD XD
Am in the midst of collating what’s coming up in January where KDrama premieres are concerned (cough, returnofbinnie, cough), but at the moment there are two things that take up much of my limited leisure time…
And the universally-loved cutie pie, Song Min Gook, who’ll grow up to be a heart breaker one day…
We’ve finally arrived at the final weekend for the Kdrama Juggernaut of the Year, Misaeng. I have yet to watch Episode 19, but from what I’ve gleaned from the fanatics grapevine… it better be a FANTASTIC ending on Saturday night.
That’s all I’m prayin’ for peeps…
On a lighter note, it’s only a few days more to Christmas!
And to all who celebrate this joyous occasion:
I hope everyone is doing swell in whichever awesome place you currently reside in. I was simply gobsmacked at how fast we’re careening into the last month of 2014. I mean, we’re pratically hurtling at warp speed
I’ve been deliberating over this matter for weeks and just a few minutes ago, I decided (albeit with a heavy heart) to discontinue recapping Mr. Baek. I shall continue to watch the drama, but it’s a totally different ballgame when I need to recap.
My mental capacity just depletes (I’m already at 50% by the time I return from work)…
… and I refuse to turn my joy of recapping into a burden.
Because it’ll defeat the purpose of sharing my eternal ❤ of KDramas with y’all.
Mianhamnida Chiggus 😥
Misaeng though, shall remain on my roster… coz I wanna see the blossoming awesomeness of GR and his tight crew by the end of its run 😀
There are a couple of currently on air dramas that I’d ❤ ❤ ❤ to sink my teeth in (ie The King’s Face/ Birth of a Beauty/ Dr. Frost). But if you’re already watching these shows, give a holler and share your take on them so far.
Ehrmerhgerd. Another thought just struck me: There will be an onslaught of December premieres soon…
