You know what always sounds good in theory? Chocolate lava cakes. All that rich chocolate goodness, and then the molten chocolate in the middle to enjoy when the cake runs out. But every time I order one of them, I get to the end of the cake and remember that I don’t have that much of a sweet tooth and it’s a burden to finish the syrup. But I ordered it, so by golly, I will finish it!!
YOU GUYS!! YOU GUYS!! Siwon is back from his military service and he’s been cast in a drama for October! I might be a little excited about this. I LOVED him in She Was Pretty. Now he’s going to be the LEAD. *faints a little*
You guys, that last teaser for While You Were Sleeping was dark and this new one is ADORABLE. Bonus: No blood. Though I did spy a bandaid…
Y’know, there’s a reason that Kmuse’s name is Kmuse. She really is my inspiration when it comes to picking dramas. I’ll whine that I have time to kill between finishing a series and waiting for the poll to close and she ALWAYS has the perfect solution.

I had a terrible time starting this series, y’all. I was raised to say “please” and “thank you” on a regular basis, and I’m raising my children in Texas, so we add “ma’am” and “sir” when needed. The female lead of I Hear Your Voice, Jang Hye Sung, was NOT raised that way and she got on my nerves at the beginning. There was a point when she finally said “thank you” to someone and I actually said, OUT LOUD, “How did those words taste coming out of your mouth?” Made my husband laugh and he was in a different room!
KBS2 has a new drama coming out this September, called Girls’ Generation 1979. That Korean title is gonna make it show up in some interesting web searches…. Continue reading
Y’all, I finished Answer Me 1988 a day before we posted the poll and I had to wait THREE WHOLE DAYS for the poll to close before I knew what I was going to watch next. I maaaaaay have whined to Unni Amber about it and she may have suggested I Remember You as a great way to fill that time. Seo In Guk? Park Bo Gum? Mystery? I was in. And then I was completely hooked.
A true-crime enthusiast, Dae Man (Kwon Sang Woo), and a senior detective, Noh (Sung Dong Il), launch a joint investigation when a mutual friend and detective, Joon Soo (Park Hae Joon), is charged with murder. Continue reading
You know what’s really hard to do? Marathon a series whose episodes are regularly 90 minutes long. SERIOUSLY, Y’ALL. That takes commitment! Fortunately for you all, I am a committed sort of person. Or maybe I just need to BE committed . . . . Continue reading
