The Weekly Recap (172)

Posted September 13, 2021 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

I’m back!!! For what seems like the hundredth time this year but what can I say? A bitch was busy, haha. I just got back from a week in Colorado where we celebrated the wedding of my nephew, Seth. It was the first time in a very long time, that all of my siblings were in attendance for a family event. With a family as big as ours, someone is always missing but not this time around. We all came together to celebrate Seth’s big day with him and though it was heavily chaotic, it was still a lot of fun and the wedding itself was absolutely beautiful.

This is the first picture that we’ve taken all together in years as well so it was a pretty big deal for us. So, please enjoy the picture cause who knows when we’ll take another one.

I haven’t been reading anything and I’m not going to freak out about it. I’ll get back to reading again when I feel like it but in the meantime, I’m enjoying what I am doing and that’s watching kdramas and listening to kpop. I’m not going to recap what I’ve been watching and listening to for the entire time that I’ve been away from the blog because I don’t remember anyway so here we go…

Let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

D.P. | 4.25 out of 5
Uncontrollaby Fond | 2.75 out of 5

I really enjoyed D.P. Dramas with Jung Hae In always start off so well for me but then they nosedive and I end up pissed off about one thing or another and though there was plenty of things to be mad about in D.P. I still enjoyed the show as a whole and I plan to review that one soon so be on the lookout for that review. Uncontrollably Fond pissed me off from beginning to end. I was mad at someone new every episode…all the way until the very end but I kept on watching because 1) Kim Woo Bin is fine as hell and 2) I had to see how things ended with everyone. I’ll be reviewing this one as well so stay tuned for that.

Thoughts on This Week’s Episodes

Police University: I watched episodes 9 & 10 this week and my mind wandered during most of episode 9. It didn’t wander enough that I lost track of what was going on but it was a little slow for me. I get that things are starting to amp up toward the end but I don’t know, these weren’t my favorite episodes. I will say that I sincerely hope that the big bad isn’t anyone that I like. There are a couple of people that I’m thinking it might be and if I’m right, I’m going to be pissed. So…please, please, please don’t be who I think it is.

The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim: This is a show with super short episodes and I kind of wish I would have started it when all of the episodes aired because I’m always thirsty for more and disappointed when the week’s episodes end. Needless to say, I’m really invested in the evil spirit at the high school and I’m really invested in the blooming romance between Ga Doo Shim and Na Woo Soo. The chemistry between them is pretty great and I can’t wait for the next couple of episodes to see what happens with the new student in last place. Will they survive or nah?

Lovers of the Red Sky: Of all of the shows that I’m watching, this show is probably my favorite. I hope it doesn’t hit a middle of the show snag because the first four episodes of this show have had me hooked. I’m loving the story, the characters, and even the love triangle. It’s not much of a love triangle right now since both of the main leads are pretty cemented in their feelings but the second lead?? I like him…just not for the main female lead.

Lost: This is the newest drama that I’m watching and I’ve watched the first four episodes. It’s a lot darker in tone than the other shows that I’m watching and it’s steeped in the real world shit (not fantasy) but I’m really enjoying it so far. Can I just say that Ryu Joon Yeol is such a cool actor? He plays these roles so well. The quiet and reserved character that is fumbling through life but you’ll never know it because he’s too cool for school.

What I Streamed for BTS

Butter by BTS, feat. Megan Thee Stallion

I’m liking this remix better than the other versions of this song and I’m streaming this for all I’m worth. It’s disappointing that we haven’t hit 50 million streams of this song on YouTube yet and I’m wondering why that is. Are the only ones enjoying this remix, the international fans? Curiouser and curiouser.

Permission to Dance by BTS

I have learned this dance (sorry, I’m not filming that, haha) so every morning, I start my day doing this dance three times before getting ready for the day. I wasn’t lying to my doctor when I told her that the only exercise that I’m getting these days is when I learn a new BTS dance. This dance is so much fun and super easy so yeah, I’m doing it every chance that I can cause I don’t need permission to dance.

Idol by BTS

I was streaming this video so that we can hit 1 billion views on it (we were so close) and…WE DID IT! I think this was like the sixth BTS video to hit 1 billion views and I’m super happy to have been a part of that so now I’m going through their videos on YouTube to see which video I’m going to throw myself into streaming for this week. I’ll fill you guys in on that next week. This is such a great song too. You can’t stop me loving myself…

What Made Me Laugh

There you have it, my week in review. I’ll be back next week with a more thorough review of my week since I didn’t do much last week. How was your week?

    Nice! Alot going on and glad you and your siblings were able to take a photo together. Its always hard to gather up the flock for a pic- wheew. I still haven’t thrown myself back into the Kdrama scene, but I will. So much to do and watch its crazy! Thanks for the updates on BTS and the views- go BTS and Army!

    • Yeah, Ingrid was excited that she didn’t have to be photoshopped into our pictures, haha.

      You’re still not watching a kdrama? Is it just kdramas or cdramas and the other dramas too?

  2. Welcome back (again) we are well aware of my blogging absence so if you keep needing to disappear to live your best life go for it. It’s awesome all of your family managed to get together for your nephew’s wedding. i can imagine with a family as big as yours it’s so hard to coordinate yourselves to be in one place at the same time.

    Don’t even worry about your lack of reading, my reading has only picked back up in the past 2 months. You’ve been busy doing fun things. i now have to have the debate of if I want to spend time socialising, watching k dramas, or reading. If only there were more hours in the day! But then I’d probably be expected to spend them working.

    If you don’t manage to read anything I’ll enjoy your k-drama updates, I always need recs for what to watch next.

    • Thanks, Becky! It’s really hard trying to get everyone together. It’s always been like that though so that’s nothing new for us.

      I’m just hoping that my lack of reading doesn’t become a permanent thing. Fingers crossed! You can do it all in moderation, I promise!

      Thanks, I’m telling you this…this blog is about to become a BTS and Kdrama fan site. LOL.
