Crazy For Kdrama Podcast Episode 22: Cozy, Cozy Kdrama

1 Apr

We had some fun this episode — or at least we laughed a lot. Although, how that’s different from any other episode? I’m not really sure.

Show Notes
In this episode we do lots of stuff, so just listen. Just kidding! After chatting about news, what we’re watching, and how Roommate has been letting us down of late, we answer Kdrama-related questions, which have us coming almost to blows over the epic question “Super Junior or Big Bang?” and wondering which Kdrama heroine we would most want to be. Then we move over to talking about comfort watches, dramas that are our go to’s if we are sick or just want to be cheered up.

Fun Friday: Top Five Dance Party Moments

6 Mar

In this cold, cold winter, stuck inside for days, I think we’re all going a little stir crazy. Unless you are on the west coast–and then I hate you.

A lot.

In times like these there is only one thing you can do to raise the spirit and get the blood pumping–and no I’m not talking a broody shower scene. Yep, you guessed it it’s time for a Dance Party! Now here are some of my Top Five kdrama Dance Party Moments. You know, characters getting their groove on!

City Hall

city hall 3

From a drama that turned from a light fun drama to a serious angst fest, it was great to have this last episode which was almost all epilogue, bringing us back to the light and fun. This song to Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry with almost all of our City Hall cast is one to remember. Makes me wish I worked at a job where I could group dance. You now, if only I could forget the episodes of office bickering and backstabbing which let up to this joyous occasion.  Continue reading

Top 5 Dramas Who Missed the Landing

12 Sep

Last weekend I had the…displeasure to finish the TWDrama, In a Good Way. Throughout most of the drama, I really liked it. Yes, it moved slower than a snails pace, and had basically no plot at all, but it was a character driven drama, which is usually right in my wheel house, so that was fine. But then, as the last 4ish episode came in, the drama went and decided to get a plot. A bad one. A plot bad enough to make me very cranky, I believe I posted this online:grumblez

The ending just left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Which got me to thinking about all the other dramas that were perfectly enjoyable, until those last few episodes, or even minutes came in and the writers blew the ending for some reason or another.

Do-dad’s and Whatnots. Random bits of Kdrama news

28 Aug

So, with the deadly cold I barely survived last week, some news has begun backing up here. So here’s a bunch of interesting stuff in easy bite sized pieces. Aww…I missed you guys almost as much as I missed the ability to breathe through my nose.

He’s in the Army Now.

Awww…..Song Joong-ki has officially shaved off the hair and reported for duty. It seems too soon doesn’t it? I feel like we should have more warning, more time to prepare ourselves for our favorites to go off to disappear for their 2 years of military service.

Mi-rae’s cast is confirmed and now, so is my interest!miraes choice Continue reading

Second-hand Crack

19 Feb

one more

While watching Smile Dong Hae the first time around I was totally hooked. Each episode made me gasp with each ever more ridiculous plot twist, each cliffhanger made me put off food and bathroom breaks for way, way too long. I HAD to find out what happened. It was the exact definition of a crack-tastic kdrama.

However, this time around, I’m finding myself not able to get as into it as I had before. I’m just not as invested, things before which had me saying, “Oh no she didn’t!”, now have me groaning or rolling my eyes. It makes me wonder:

Do these crack shows not hold up after the fervor has gone away?  Continue reading

Casting News: Jeong Kyeo-woon

30 Jan

wonderful mamaJeong Kyeo-woon’s coming back to TV, Jeong Kyeo-woon’s coming back to TV!

Yep, it has been confirmed that my favorite pointy eared Khottie is coming back to TV after his pretty awesome turn in History of a Salaryman.

Now this show, Wonderful Mama, is a weekend drama, so it’s not going to have the biting funniness of Salaryman, but that’s okay, Jung Kyeo-woon is still going to be the lead. I’m fairly certain this will be his first leading role since the (under-appreciated in my mind) kdrama Dr. Champ. Continue reading

Top 5 Most Rewatched Shows

9 Oct

Be it a rainy day, or a blue mood, or just a genuine love of drama, we all have shows we go back to again and again. For us these shows may be cozy, heartwarming, or just a pick me up. We don’t necessarily have to rewatch the show from start to finish, we watch favorite parts, favorite scenes, or heck we may even just highlight reel the whole series. I personally also use these dramas when I want to watch Kdrama but don’t have time and don’t want to take the chance to get sucked into a new show. You know, because once a show has me in its clutches, I’m there until the end.

Again, like the list of Cracktastic Kdramas, these may not even be the best shows, they may not even show up on my top 5 or even top 10 list of favorite dramas. But when the urge to rewatch comes upon me, there they are, waiting.

Assorted Gems Review (Spoilers)

3 Jul

assorted gems

Son of a Sea Monkey, this one hurts to have to do again. As I posted on Saturday, do to some errant computer freezing and someone who doesn’t back up a document until it’s done, I lost all the work I’d already done for this review. Which, I’m sure, was absolutely brilliant. However, I have a container of ice tea next to me, Pandora is set to Elvis Perkins, a post-it note reminding me to save as I go along attached to my screen, and a determination to finish this bad-boy.

Top 5 Grossly Irresponsible Kdrama Parents

29 Jun

So earlier this week we discussed the Kdrama phenomenon Grossly Irresponsible Parents. These are the worst of the worst offenders. These parents just make me angry with their willful ways and endless expectations for their children to clean up their messes. Once again, keep in mind the show’s I’ve seen, I’m sure there are more, possibly worse parents out there, and I’m sure I’ll bump into them at a later date.
