News Train: Period Drama Kindred Spirits

Period drama kindred spirits await to be made!

Upcoming Shows:

Anne of Green Gables – Anne is getting a Netflix show! I am so excited about this! Of course, I don’t believe anything could really compare with the 80s movie… but this could still be SO GOOD!!! Also a show means there will be multiple episodes… think of how much they could put in the show that was in the book?

Moon Lovers (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) – It’s ALMOST HERE FRIENDS! One more week! I am so excited for this time traveling reverse harem K-drama remake of the popular Chinese drama Scarlet Heart! It’s going to be EPIC! I will be writing recaps for the episodes on Silver Petticoat Review also! Super pumped!

Current Shows:

W – Worlds Collide – I heard so many good things about this drama I finally bit the bullet and started watching. This show is all kinds of fun with a comic book hero coming to life (think more of a manga/manhwa story, not a superhero comic)! The plot is twisty-turny fun and I seriously have no idea what’s going to happen next. Which is a really cool feeling.

Cinderella and Four Knights – My cotton-candy drama that  is fluff and pink and sugary sweet. Seroiusly, there’s a lot of pretty. I’m still waiting for the show to really bring on the hijinks excitement though. I'm also falling in love with Bodyguard Yoon-Sung. Please marry me??

Doctor Thorne – Found this on Amazon Prime! I haven’t watched a BBC period drama in a long time and man… seeing the costumes and gorgeous, mouth-watering settings and everything… well it just feels like home.

Click Your Heartfound this on Netflix. Apparently this was a Korean webseries, thus the episodes are very short – about 12 minutes each. The story is pretty simplified – klutzy hated high school girl and four cute guys, who will she choose? (whoa this story sounds familiar… right, Cinderella??) But the actors are cute. I dunno… it’s just CUTE!

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…
