I Miss You

I Miss You a.k.a. Missing You
Warning: This will be a long blog & will probably contain spoilers...I can't help myself
This is a post I've been itching to write for a long time but kept putting off in the hopes that my emotional turmoil attachment would finally cease but even after more than six months, I'm still as emotional distraught attached to the Kdrama as I was on the day it ended. This is one of those Kdramas that define other Kdramas--the kind that you rewatch in the hopes that somehow magically the script and the characters will change to make everything as perfect as you know it should have been.

So mischievous looking!
I note this Kdrama as being absolute perfection. There is not one thing I didn't like about it--not even in it's smallest form. I actually had to draw this KDrama out for a few months--not because I didn't like it but because I Honest-to-God didn't want it to end. All of the strings in the KDrama were tied in a neat little bow and basically gift wrapped for your Kdrama Heart!

I Hear Your Voice

I Hear Your Voice

This drama just finished airing a couple weeks ago and it was great! I was impressed by everything with this Kdrama. I had seen both Lee Jong Suk and Yoon Sang Hyun act before in Secret Garden except this time Lee Jong Suk was the main lead and he definitely raised the stakes with this performance.

This was one of the KDramas I was glad I didn't start until AFTER it had finished airing. The cliffhangers were good enough that being forced to wait a week must have been pure torture. This was my first historical drama and with one or two minor exceptions, the Kdrama itself was perfect. It had great actors who played characters who were easy to understand. Much like Secret Garden, this KDrama blended the fantasy and reality very well.

By far my favorite Kdrama...I'll tell you why!

This wasn't the first Kdrama I ever watched but it is definitely the one that I always refer to first whenever suggesting Kdramas. To give a synopsis of the series; the story follows Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin) and Gil La Im (Ha Ji Won) and their tumble into love.

Ajusshi's & Ajummas We Can't Help But Love

Ajusshi's & Ajummas We Can't Help But Love

The title refers to those familiar faces we see in Kdramas that belong to the older generation--you know...the ones who play minor, yet impactful characters and you can't help but go "Hey, it's him!' If you are a fan of Kdramas but don't live in Korea, it's more likely that you won't remember their names as well as you will their counterparts (i.e. Kim Woo Bin, Joo Won, Lee Min Ho) but you most definitely remember their faces as well as their previous roles in other KDramas.

First Step to Every Well-Planned Trip: Lodgings...

First Step to Every Well-Planned Trip: 
Lodgings...

I sort of fell into this blog while planning my trip to Korea...but it's been quite the ride so far! I started off intending to write about the different hotels and hostels you could find around Korea but the more and more I wrote, the more I realized it was becoming a "General Info" blog rather than specifically about Korea (although, it still kind of is). From my years of being a writing student, I know better than to fight with my muse and just go with her...she can be quite a handful if she's ignored. So my inner battle has been put to an end: I'll do both!
