Movies and TV I’m looking forward to in 2014 (Part 2)

And the continuation of my great journey – into the heart of TV, both U.S. and worldwide!


Ongoing: Agents of Shield
This show has had a lot of ups and downs for me. But it’s Marvel. It has secret agents and superheroes. So yeah, I’ll be watching to see where it goes.

January 24: Emergency Couple (Korean drama)
I love Song Ji Hyo and Choi Jin Hyuk! And now they’re playing a couple? I’m so tuning in. Only, it’s a medical drama - blood and surgical knives, eek! It’s also a weekend drama (which can be loooong) but luckily this one is only 20 episodes (normal length for a prime time k-drama).

March 6: Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
I like this show despite its predictability, cheesiness and really bad CGI. Lol. Hey, it’s cute and sweet and about fairytale characters. I just hope the writers know where they’re headed with the plot. Otherwise this could be a real short ride.

March 9: Once Upon a Time
Yay it’s coming back! Fairytales rock, people! This show may struggle with some repetitiveness and runarounds, but it’s still the best thing on American television IMO right now.

Possibly April: Unprecedented (Korean drama)
Not sure about the release date. But this k-drama will be a saguek (historical) about a politically aggressive king who took down his own brothers to get to the throne. I may tune in and watch an episode or 2 to see if I’m interested. Possibly staring Cha Seung-Won (that's his pic up there).

Spring: Turn (AMC)
American Revolution. Georgian Era. You’re speaking my language now. Not sure if it’ll be good, but I’m still really, really excited!

Spring: Crossbones (NBC)
It’s really hard to find information on upcoming TV. There’s just not as much early hype as movies. I have no idea what this will be like – but it’s got pirates. So I’ll at least be watching the trailers.

Sometime 2014: The Condor Heroes (Chinese drama)
There’s not a lot of info on this C-drama, but some pretty pictures. My interest is piqued mostly from the two main actors (who I’ve heard about, not actually seen, lol). It’s rated TV-14 (well, a website said PG-13, but I consider that a movie rating). I have to admit I haven’t seen many C-dramas that I liked, so I’m kinda doubting that I’ll get into this.

Unknown Date: Emerald City (NBC)
I’m mentioning this simply becuz I heard about it this year. I have no idea of any release date. But I like the Wizard of Oz story, so I’ll be interested in seeing what this becomes.

Unknown Date: Gotham TV Show (Fox)
Batman is my favorite superhero. Does that mean I like this idea? Not really certain. Especially if Bruce starts out as a ten-year-old. Not sure how that’s gonna work out.


  1. YES! Love some of these on your list like 'Once' (that poster is GORGEOUS!) and am curious to watch 'S.H.I.E.L.D' as well. Plus you've piqued my interest about 'Emerald City.' That could be really good. :)

    1. That poster is sooo gorgeous. I still haven't figured out yet if its real or fan-made though, lol. I hope its real. And yeah, I think Emerald City could be really good if they handled it right. Can't wait to hear more about it.

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
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…

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…

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…
