Drama Review: Sly and Single Again

There are times when all you want to watch is a good rom-com drama. Not a drama that claims to be rom-com, only to end up leaving you scattered in a puddle of emotions. No, an actual romantic and comedic rom-com. Oddly enough, those true to claim dramas are rather hard to come by, mostly because a vast majority of them turn into a sad ball of sadness towards the second half. The good thing is, they're not extinct. Sly and Single Again (also known as Cunning Single Lady) should be proud they could fit themselves in this true rom-com category.

God's Gift-14 Days Finale Week Thoughts

Today's post is going to be a big fat rambling on why good drama endings are always hard. Mostly because of the God's Gift-14 Days ending and I want to rant about it. Hopefully this will all make sense. But I'm in a puddle of emotions right now. Spoilers galore for obvious reasons. For actual comprehensible writing on K-drama endings, you can read fellow blogger Indigo's writing here which is really funny and totally true.

God's Gift-14 Days, Week 7

In the world of God's Gift-14 Days, it isn't over til it's over. Just when you think you can breathe a sigh of relief, it jerks you back in, unwilling to let go. It's the final week before the finale. All cards are on the table. But the gun is still on someone's head. Let's just hope everyone will come out alive this time.

Potato Star and the Dilemma of Long Dailies

Here's something you may be surprised about. I've been watching Potato Star 2013QR3 for the past few weeks or so. The reason why it may be surprising is because this is a daily drama. With 120 episodes. That's a whole lot of hours I could've used for something somewhat useful. Whatever that is.

God's Gift-14 Days, Week 6

The chase is now officially at full speed. Our main characters are getting closer and closer to the answer of this riddle. But as we're getting closer, the stakes keep getting higher. And with a criminal on the loose willing to kill anyone who's in his path, no one is safe. Will they succeed in changing fate, or are the forces of evil too strong to fight back?

Drama Review: Emergency Couple

Rekindled divorced couple rom-com is a thing, and Emergency Couple is the first of at least two dramas with the theme this year. (The other is Sly and Single Again which I'm also watching.) Set in the emergency room of a hospital, a divorced couple unexpectedly find their way together again as interns. Hilarity and hijinx, and plenty of mama drama, ensues.

God's Gift-14 Days, Week 5

No psycho killers coming out of their caves this week. All eyes back to our main case. But the more we learn, the more mysterious everything becomes. Like an endless pit of doom. More and more of the people we know become more and more suspicious. Or at least suspiciously secretive. And that's never good.
