That Romantic Moment! Series: Carry the Girl

So, I’m starting a fun little series called That Romantic Moment where I choose a favorite romantic gesture or action and choose moments from shows/films I've watched. This one is called Carry the Girl (probably self-explanatory, hehe). I think I find it so sweet and endearing as there's never a reason for it to happen in real life. It can also be dramatic – carrying the injured girl and all that romantic whatnot. And good drama never hurt anything, am I right?

What are your favorite "carry the girl" (or boys, in the case of Ever After, hehe) scenes? Any favorite romantic tropes? Maybe I can add it into my romantic series! I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. love your list, it's just too bad about that guard in king2hearts.

    make this list piggyback rides and you will have plenty of scenes to choose from all those Korean dramas

    totally love 'ever after' and that scene is a lot of fun because you never see a girl carrying a guy, certainly it says so much about her character there.

    have a lovely day.

    1. Aww thanks! (And I'll never forgive King2Hearts for what they did!!)

      Yes! You're right; piggyback rides! There's an never-ending supply of those in K-dramas, hehe.

      That scene from Ever After is my favorite in the movie. Its just too good.

  2. Great list! You've made me want to go and re-watch loads of these, haha. How about kisses in the rain for a romantic trope? :D

    1. Aw thanks! I'll add that idea to my list for future posts! :D

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…
