Protect The Boss

Protect the Boss (also known as The Last Secretary)
PLOT: A down-on-luck woman, who can take out a guy or two with her martial arts she learned from her dad, gets a job as a secretary and P.A. for a paranoid rich-boy. Only, he’s decided he’s in love with her…
EPISODES: 18
OPINION: So cute! Funny and more cute. I loved this show, which, IMHO, was almost a subtle spoof of all the office k-dramas. The show can be pretty crazy (not as crazy as Community or American comedy shows though, lol), but also at times dramatic or just plain fun.
The characters were adorable and engaging. I thought the lead actor’s crazy phobias (played for comedy) hilarious and even at times touching. I loved his journey to become free of it all to win his love. Also, the girl power rocked; really enjoyed seeing a girl who stands up for herself but is also mature, compassionate and honest.
CONTENT: a man makes an advance on a female employee, the heroine goes to the men’s bathroom and attacks the guy hitting on her coworker (in a crazy, rather comedic event) and threatens him to leave girls like that alone; a girl and guy contemplate their former fling (they describe it as hormonal attraction); a guy sleeps over at two girls’ apartment on the floor; a girl sees a guy in his bright-colored boxers; rumors circulate that a secretary is sleeping with her boss; a girl and guy lie on a bed together and stare at one another; a guy stays over at a girl’s apartment (it is unclear if they sleep together); some drinking, a girl has brief day-dream fantasies where one guy comes onto her & another where she shares two lovers, a lot of comedic fighting, scuffling, and hitting; (*warning* - if you watch this show, or any K-drama, you may notice that often parents strike their adult children all the time, on the arms and shoulders, whenever they are angry. Not sure why this is a staple in k-dramas.)
(my) RATING: PG-13 (a Spider-Man PG-13)
STARS: 5 out of 5

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Ahem.
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
