February 2016 Period Drama Challenge: Tag Questions

Yay! Since I finally reviewed a period drama for February (Hail, Caesar), I have some tags to answer! Excited for the many more reviews to come.

1. What period dramas did you view in February?
Hail, Caesar is really the only period drama I can think of that I watched in February. I enjoyed the film especially as a fan of the classic film era.

2. What is your favorite period drama musical?
Singin’ in the Rain is my favorite and I swear the best musical ever!! Other favorites would be Slipper and the Rose, Roger’s and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, The Sound of Music, and lots of others, lol.

3. If you could order up an adaptation of your favorite classic book, what would it be and who would star?
Yes! I love this question! I would order an adaptation of Eight Cousins and Rose in Bloom by Louisa May Alcott. Most of us know her Little Women series, however I love Eight Cousins/Rose In Bloom just as much and I would be SO HAPPY if someone like PBS adapted it into a miniseries. I think Lily James would be so perfect as Rose!

4. If you could be a famous royal from history, who would you be and why?
Ooo. This is a toughie. Sadly, many royals lives were really dark and tragic. I guess I’d choose Queen Seondeok, who ruled Silla (early Korea) by herself. She had a few revolts but her trusty general Yushin easily quelled that. That or I’d choose Princess Heo Hwang-Ok, said to be a princess from India who came to Korea and married King Suro of Gaya (early Korea). They had 12 children; two of her kids took on her surname. Much of their story is surrounded in myth and legend, but it's an intriguing story.

5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in March 2016?

I’m planning to start watching some historical dramas, including Six Flying Dragons, however whether or not I’ll start this month will be seen. Hehe.

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
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…
