That Romantic Moment! Series: Piggyback Ride

Back with another That Romantic Moment where I choose a favorite romantic gesture or action and pick moments from shows/films I've watched. This one is called Piggyback Ride. Very similar to the "carry the girl" version I did last time, however this one only has people carrying someone via the piggyback. While there's a lot of piggyback riding in K-dramas I couldn't really find any non-Korean movies that had it. I guess piggyback rides to most simple minds is more of a kid thing, but in K-drama land it's the epitome of romance, friends!

That Romantic Moment! Series: Piggyback Ride

A Cinderella Story
The one American film I could find with a piggyback ride... 
and it's really only for the poster. Hahaha

Can You Hear My Heart?
The only way to walk in the park, friends.

Cheese in the Trap
Hong Seol gets points for having two dudes escort her home.
Of course her boyfriend gets to be the one to carry her.

"I'll just fall asleep here. Thanks."

King 2 Hearts
I'm not going to cry.

My Princess
They're just too cute.

Queen Seondeok
Dramatic rescue with piggyback ride from the mud pit of death. Check.

Running Man
In Korean variety shows there are lots of episodes dedicated to the piggyback ride challenge -
many of which are hilarious. I chose this one because I love the SpartaAce team:
Ji-Hyo and Jong-Kook rule!

Running Man (again)
Monday Couple cute. This one gets double the points because the girl (Ji-Hyo)
is carrying the guy. Also she really carries him through the streets;
 I have no idea how.

Yes, this one is not romantic. This is just all kinds of awesome
It had to be included; forgive me.


  1. The piggy back ride is always a fun drama cliche :) I love all of your examples! It really was hard not to tear up seeing Si Kyung and the princess. Why, drama writers? WHY!?

    I love the last one a lot :)

    1. Oh, yeah. You always can anticipate the piggy back ride. I was feeling so emotional just watching the scene of Si Kyung and the princess to get the picture!

    1. Yes! That one makes me so happy lol!

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…
