Upcoming K-Drama: Madame Antoine


A new year has started and new K-dramas are rolling in. Though I haven't started any new ones, still trying to catch up with some older K-dramas that I need to finish, an upcoming K-drama, Madame Antoine, has caught my eye and I'm interested (ahem excited, hehe) to see it.


Madame Antoine stars Han Ye-Seul as a phony fortune-teller who uses her unique skill to read a person. She meets a cynical psychologist (Sung Joon) who's out to prove that love doesn't exist. Of course, the only way to do that (at least in K-Drama world, hehe) is to start contract dating to prove love isn't real at all! I'm already sold on the premise which sounds silly but cute with lots of potential for fun and funny moments. Also, I find it amusing that Sung Joon played a psychiatrist last year in a K-drama (Hyde, Jekyll, and Me) and is playing a psychologist here.



Hopefully this one will deliver! Though a watched a handful of good K-dramas last year, I dropped probably ten dramas that I just couldn't get into or finish. Lol. Madame Antoine is slated for January 22nd which is right around the corner! Aren't the posters gorgeous, by the way?? And I love Han Ye-Seul's bohemian, boho-chic style. So much pretty!!

  1. I hadn't seen this one yet! I'm so excited now :) I love Sung Joon, and I fell in love with Jung Jin Woon in Marriage Not Dating, though I am sad to see it's likely another second lead role where he won't get the girl :P

    2015 was not a good year for dramas for me. I dropped way more than I finished!

      And that's right Jung Jin Woon was in Marriage Not Dating! Hopefully he'll get a leading role sometime in the future.

  2. This is a fun premise and it's on my list- mostly for Sung Joon. He's brilliant in the psychologist/psychiatrist/genius roles. OCN's Local Hero premieres the day after this one and that takes priority for me, but I'm definitely watching this one at some point.

    1. Oh I remember hearing about Local Hero! (quite a while ago so of course I forgot about it, lol) Well, there's another drama to add to my TBW list! :)

    2. Lee Soo-Hyuk is one of my three top favorite Korean actors so any new drama of his goes at the very top of my TBW list.

    3. I like Lee So-Hyuk a lot! Have you seen High School King of Savvy? I haven't; just wondering if it's any good. ;)

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…
