Beautiful Mind Episode 1 Recap

Jang Hyuk, Kdrama

Beautiful Mind Kdrama Episode1 banner

Anyone who’s known me for some time knows that I LOVE Jang Hyuk. He’s not only a handsome face for me. His acting style is one I really admire. He is a versatile chameleon that will morph and inhabit a role that he chooses to play (whether the script is any good or not). I say this, but I’ve been the worse possible fan in the last maybe year and a half. Although I’ve attempted his last two Sageuks, I couldn’t successfully finish them (yet).

Descendants of the Sun post-it note

 

Hey everyone,

Wow… I haven’t posted in quite some time. I’m still around and well although life has been a little hectic. I’m quite exited because Descendants of the Sun starts tonight. Other than that, I’ve been Watching Madame Antoine and One More Happy Ending. I also started and almost finished Mask, but I’ve been stuck on the last couple episodes. I did start Gaekju, but I fell so far behind that I’ve set it aside for now. I’m disappointed in myself, because I really wanted to watch it for Jang Hyuk, but forty plus episodes seems so daunting.

Let’s hope that Descendants of the Sun is enjoyable.

Bye for now 🙂

Bubblegum Kdrama Extended teaser, Screen Caps and Nonsensical Rambling

Bubblegum, Jung Ryeo Won, Kdrama, Lee Dong Wook

Ahhhhhhhhh! Spazz attack! Okay, okay. So I watched the 8 minute Bubblegum Kdrama teaser and my excitement for the drama continues to grow. I was originally going to make a coherent and analytical post dissecting the teaser, but let’s not kid ourselves. I’m in no state of mind to do this. I want to simply enjoy it, leisurely screen cap and make collages from it because it’s fun. Plus, I’m at a disadvantage because I don’t know what they are saying.

Hotel King Quick Review

Kdrama, Lee Da Hae, Lee Dong Wook, Melodrama, Romantic Melodrama

When Hotel King first came out, I was very intrigued. I wasn’t familiar with Lee Dong Wook at the time, but I did really liked Lee Da Hae. I attempted to watch it when it first aired, but ten minutes into the first episode, I saw how very intense it was going to be. Back then, I was burning out on melodramas so I decided to wait, but happily browsed recap posts so i could still get a taste of the drama. Finally, over a year later, in the midst of my Lee Dong Wook obsession, I decided this was the moment to sit and watch.

5 Things I like about Lee Dong Wook

Actors, Lee Dong Wook

A couple months ago if you had asked me what I thought of Korean Actor Lee Dong Wook, I probably would have said “Meh, I dunno. Haven’t seen him in much and don’t really have an opinion”. Well, boy did that change. After finally watching the Kdrama “Scent of a Woman” I decided to board the crazy train and go down a very interesting and fulfilling journey discovering Lee Dong Wook’s projects. I’m still in the process of doing so, therefore I’m going to keep this short as more of a teaser post.

Now I’m not going to pretend to claim that all of his works are masterpieces, but I did find some marvelous ones I really enjoy. I plan to review quite a few of them, so I won’t blab on about specifics, but will give you a few reasons I’ve come to love and respect this actor in a short period of time.

Scent of a Woman Kdrama Review

Kdrama, Kim Sun A, Lee Dong Wook, Melodrama, Romantic Melodrama

Scent of a Woman Kdrama Tango Scene

One of the things I love so much about work, is that a few of my co-workers also watch Asian dramas. It’s really fun to discuss and recommend shows when we’re on break. Even though we have dramas in common, we also each have our own unique style when it comes to dramas we like and dislike – and the same goes for actors. That is why I often hesitate when a co-worker recommends a particular show to me. I’m a bit of a rebel, and don’t always like to follow recommendations if I’m not sure if it’ll suit my personal taste. I’m notorious for dropping dramas, so I don’t like wasting my time. But, my one co-worker has been telling me for about 6 months now that I should check out Scent of a Woman. Finally she wore me down and I conceded.

Super Quick Movie and Kdrama Reviews

I watch more than I review these days. I must do my blog justice and give you all a peek into my drama mind.

I’m listing all the dramas and movies I’ve watched since January that I haven’t reviewed and will give you a very brief rundown on my thoughts. Perhaps at some point I’ll elaborate more on a few of these dramas. You’ll be able to tell that I’ve gone through a Jang Keun Suk phase. I pretty much watched him in everything I could fined with a couple exceptions.

Without further ado, here’s a quick rundown on what I’ve been watching.

I’m Sorry I Love You (2004) Kdrama Review

Kdrama, Melodrama, Romantic Melodrama, So Ji Sub

I don’t know how many of you like to go back and watch older dramas that you haven’t seen before, but periodically, I really enjoy watching older dramas.

“I’m Sorry I love You” has been on my radar for quite some time, but I had been avoiding it, waiting for the right time where I felt I could handle it emotionally. I had been warned that it was sad, so I didn’t know if it would be worth it or not.

There are certain dramas and movies that have really been upsetting, yet beautiful at the same time; so you ask yourself, is it worth it? Well, I’ll be honest – I’m not sure why, but some of the most endearing love stories to me are rather depressing because the love is really tested. It also seems heightened due to tragedy.
