Alice in Cheongdamdong Review

  I went into this drama with a lot of trepidation. I couldn't help feeling that the premise left me doubting that I would like it, since it made this drama sound so much like it was trying to set feminism back 100 years. I worried that Han Se Kyung would be the antithesis to independent women everywhere, and that this drama would mostly promote materialism, greed, and shallowness. I was never happier to be proven wrong.

Kekkon Shinai Episode 8 Recap

  I'm finally back to the world of the blogging! I guess I just have to acknowledge that the holidays are really over and get back to normal life.
  I did use some of this time to marathon another jdorama—Guilty Akuma to Keiyakushita Onna—which also stars Kanno Miho and Tamaki Hiroshi, but is a dark revenge drama. It's not my usual thing, but it's good, and compelling. Thank you to Anonymous, who recommended it to me. However, after watching so much heartbreak between Tamaki Hiroshi and Kanno Miho, it's great to get back to the happier and lighter story of Kekkon Shinai.

Coming out of Hibernation

  Some of you may have noticed that it's been a while since I posted anything. Like a month. Don't worry, I didn't die, or get sick (a cold doesn't really count), or have anything dramatic happen. I've just had a severe case of the lazies since Christmas.
