News Train: K2, Moon Lovers, Poldark, & More!


Welcome to that part of the blog where I talk about shows I’m intrigued about and those that I’m watching at the moment. I call it… the news train (disclaimer: italic words prefacing this are best read in a spooky whisper).

Upcoming Shows I’m Anticipating

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy – This is a C-drama that I leaned about not long ago. I’m not certain when it’s coming out… either late this year or next year. Or where it will be licensed in the U.S. at this point. But the trailer blew my mind! I mean, the production quality was on the level of a movie. Seriously just watch the trailer!

Current Shows I’m Watching

The K2 – Very dramatic with a lot of fight scenes (no, I mean a LOT of very long fight scenes!). There’s definitely things I enjoy about this show. But there’s still a lot that I feel that is missing. I’m not quite certain that I can really say what. Perhaps more heart?

Moon Lovers – finished this dramatic retelling of the popular Chinese novel/C-drama with a reverse harem time traveling story. My feelings were extremely mixed by the end. Overall, I enjoyed the show… but the ending left a lot to be desired. More of my thoughts here…

Shopping King Louie – I just love Louie. And Bok-Shil. They be so darn cute it kills me! I like the silliness of the show and the cutesy effects they add in, etc. However, I’m bored unless it’s Louie and Bok-Shil on the screen. Being their usual adorkable selves.

The Man Living In Our House – I love Soo-Ae. She’s so awesome! Aside from her perfection, I’m only at episode two and already I’m not certain if this show has enough momentum to carry it very far. Will have to see. Fingers crossed.

Poldark – finally started watching the first season of this highly talked about period drama. I’m halfway through and: the drama is so freakin’ gorgeous, Ross Poldark is totes handsome, and Demelza is perfection. That is all.



Lemmie know what you’re watching or excited about seeing soon!

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…
