Lee Jung Shin’s Longing Heart

Quite honestly, writing this review is one I have been avoiding due to a single reason: Jung Yong Hwa's scandal. After the events of last December, we were all just recovering that CN Blue fans got hurt by Yong Hwa's scandal. An absolutely illogical scandal that has left me very disturbed, especially because of Yong [...]

Year 2010: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

So I finally watched My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, after having planned to watch it for the last five years or so. It was definitely fun to watch and it helped flesh out the main elements of a Hong sisters plot. With a plot based mostly on fantasy, it had a lot more significance in terms [...]

Year 2009: You’re Beautiful

With Hwayugi's finale fast approaching, here am I paying my own kind of tribute to the ladies behind a multitude of classic Korean dramas that have defined pop culture for over a decade: The Hong Sisters. For many new fans of Korean culture, specifically dramas, these women, rather script writers are ones they are unfamiliar [...]

Trauma in the Aftermath of Man-Made Disaster | Just Between Lovers

살아남았어 다행이다 (이강두) - Because we survived, it's a relief. (Lee Kang Doo) The journey from Seo Yul in Chief Kim to Lee Kang Doo in Just Between Lovers has been fantastic for Lee Joon Ho, and it's the growth of a promising idol-actor. The show has not even been completed as I begin to [...]

Scaling the Edges of Humanity | I’m Not a Robot

Another great drama came to an end last night. I Am Not a Robot was a scientific fiction drama with a mix of romance. It had all the trappings of a conventional Korean romantic comedy, but somehow was able to deliver a very memorable story, through all its characters. It's a story that I believe [...]

Wise Prison Life

One of the best, most iconic Korean drama came to an end last week, but was unavailable with English subtitles for almost another week. Hence my review is exceptionally late. Set in a Foucault-inspired Panopticon, that is Seobu penitentiary, the story is a unique one, given such a depressing place as a constant set for [...]

When the Mistakes of the Past Come to Haunt the Present | Two Cops

My first review of the year, 2018 and I am over the moon writing about such an incredible drama that just came to a close last night. A story revolving around the police force and swindlers uniting against a common enemy: people behind numerous murders. It was packed with action, suspense, mystery and of course [...]

All My Friends Are Heathens

Written by guest writer. 31st October, 2017 9:45 pm   Jungkook yawned.   He was cold. He was hungry. He wanted to be in his bed right now, snuggled up in the warm blankets with a hot cup of coffee in his right hand while he watched one action movie after another (preferably with blondes [...]
