The Monthly Recap: October 2022

Posted November 1, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

The Monthly Recap posts are a way for me to take a look back and reflect on my previous month in Korean dramas. I always lose track of what I want to watch and I need these posts to keep me honest with my damn self because I be forgetting shit. So let’s start this recap, shall we?

I can’t believe that we’re already entering into the last two months of the year and that a month has passed since my last Monthly Recap. Time is moving way too fast and I’m not sure I’m ready for the new year. I have loads of plans and shit to do but am I ready to tackle all of it? Not really. The show must go on though so I’ll be moving forward with this post, at the very least.

October was a lot busier than I thought it would, especially with how busy September was. I traveled to Utah and then on to California for different things. I had a lot of fun but was more than ready for a break from the hustle and bustle that is my family life. I did manage to get some k-drama watching in so that’s a good thing. Let’s take a look back on what I watched, what worked, and what didn’t work for me. Shall we?

Monthly Stats

Dramas Watched: 9 | Dramas Dropped: 1 | Dramas Still Watching: 6

Dramas I Completed

Little Women | 4 out of 5

This was a solid month in my k-drama watching. Out of the three shows that I completed, my favorite of the bunch was definitely Little Women. My least favorite is the one drama that I couldn’t even finish.

Dramas I Dropped

The Cursed | 1.5 out of 5

Therese and I tried to get into this show but it was too confusing, the story was just meh and it was hard to connect with the characters so we got to episode 5 and called it quits. I was surprised that we only got to episode 5 because I thought we were watching for days and were a lot farther into the show but nope…it was that boring for the both of us. Oh well.

Dramas I’m Still Watching

Love in Contract
Bad Prosecutor

Gaus Electronics
Love is for Suckers

Actors that Stood Out

Jung Eun Ji in Blind

I’m really enjoying this drama and I’m sad that it’s wrapping up next week BUT as much as I’m enjoying the main three leads, I’m enjoying Jung Eun Ji’s character the most. She’s always looking on the bright side of things and always doing her best to do what’s right. I like her acting so I’m looking forward to checking her out in whatever else she’s got going on.

Kwak Dong Yeon from Gaus Electronics

I love me some Kwak Dong Yeon but I especially love him in this drama. I didn’t think that I could love one of his characters more than I loved Jerry from Big Mouth but I hella love Lee Sang Sik. I love how unlucky he is and how optimistic he is even when things are stacked against him. He treats everyday as a day to do better than yesterday and I just love him sincerity so he stayed with me throughout the month.

Go Kyung Pyo in Love in Contract

I’ve seen Go Kyung Pyo in a lot of different things and I’ve enjoyed him in everything he’s been in but it wasn’t until this show and this character that I’ve really paid attention to him. I really like him as Jung Ji Ho and seeing him bring this character to life every week has been a delight. I’m buying everything he’s selling and seeing his character learn to fall in love and be in love has been great. He’s been great.

How was your month, in all the things? Did you read or watch anything good (or bad)? Share in the comments, I’d love to catch up!

The Weekly Recap (181)

Posted October 31, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments


Happy Halloween!

Stay safe out there if you’re celebrating on the streets this year. Halloween’s not really my thing so I’ll be in the house, probably watching some k-dramas. My thoughts and prayers are with the families that were affected by the sad events in Itaewon over the weekend. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about all of that. Between that and Jin’s military enlistment, I’ve been a giant ball of emotions. So if you’re going out tonight, please, please, please be safe.

I’m back home so this week was for catching up on my rest, catching on my k-dramas, and relaxing in my own space. I’m also all caught up on all things Bangtan and to all of those people that showed up at the airport and were stalking the guys lives…I hope you step on three legos every day for the next 20 years. SMH.

Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

Twentieth Century Girl | 4 out of 5

Blind: I am finally all caught up on this show and I’m hooked. The way that I can’t figure out who’s good and who’s not and what the heck is going on but I can’t stop watching. The actors and actresses in this show are doing a fantastic job of carrying this story. I’m invested and super curious about how this is all going to pan out so yeah, I’ll be tuning in every week until the very end.

Gaus Electronics: This show is a lot of fun to watch. I’m glad that I added it to my weekly k-drama line up. I’m enjoying the heck out of this one.

The Law Cafe: This show wrapped up this week and I’m a little bummed that the ending dragged for me. The first half of the season was strong and I was totally invested but somewhere along the way, the show lost steam and I lost interest in what was happening. While I did enjoy the show overall, I wasn’t that bothered that the show came to its end.

Love in Contract: This weeks episodes were good ones. I didn’t know that I would enjoy this show as much as I am when I first started watching it. With each passing episode, it gets better and better for me. What an impossible situation to be in for all three leads but they continue to shine through their struggles. Gah, so good.

Bad Prosecutor: I finally started this one and holy shit, this drama is good. It’s my style of drama and I’m here for another drama with DO from Exo leading the story. This has the right amount of mystery, thrills, and humor to keep me coming back for more. I’m all in on this one!

Love is For Suckers: This one is a mess but I’m invested in what is going on. It started off so great. It was cute, it was fun, and I adored the friendship between Yeo Reum and Jae Hoon but then episode 4 and 5 happened and now I want to burn shit down. I’m hooked though so I need to see how it all comes together and fixes itself but gah….the mess! I’m not even going to front, I watched episode 5 screaming, “THAT’S WHAT YOU GET!” But even I feel bad for all the shit going on right now. Gah again.

May I Help You?: I started this drama this week and I’m glad that I did. I love Lee Hyeri and would watch her read her grocery list if she released it. I’m super glad that this show has an interesting premise and I already love Hyeri’s character so much. I’ll continue to watch it to see everything unfold.

The Weekly Recap (180)

Posted October 24, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Happy Monday! I took last week off without realizing I was going to take it off because I was traveling and spending time with my best friend but also with my family. I had a great time, had some not so great times, and I’m back home and ready to get back to my regular degular life.

I first traveled to Utah for a funeral on my Dad’s side, my niece’s gender reveal party, and a farewell dinner for my nephew who reports to the Army boot camp this week. Yep, lots of people I love are getting ready to enlist in the military, haha. My niece Chaylene, and her husband Isaiah, are having a baby girl and I’m thrilled for them even though I was hoping for a baby boy. Our family has a lot of women. We need some men to even things out a bit. Chaylene is so extra too but I loved it. She recreated the dinner party in her favorite movie, Coraline, and not a detail was missed. I felt bad for her because after we got everything set up exactly to her liking, the Utah wind decided to act up that day and blew all of our hard work away. We didn’t even get to take pictures of it and I had the hardest job. I had to make a fireplace that was sturdy enough to hold the desserts and gender reveal chocolates. And I had to make it out of cardboard boxes! It took me most of the day to get it figured out but once I finally did, it came out great and a huge part of that is thanks to Isaiah’s sister, Chalet. She’s a great painter and she brought our fireplace to life in the most spectacular way. It was so pretty.

Last Sunday, after we had dinner for my nephew Chance, who leaves for bootcamp today, I flew to L.A. with my Dad. I spent the week in L.A. before returning home to Vegas yesterday. While in L.A. I attended my niece Meghan’s Recognition Night at her old school for holding the record in Women’s Basketball for every single record. Meg really is the best. But now, I’m home. My introverted ass is super glad to be home too. I’m glad to have all of my things around me again and to sleep in my own bed for the first time in over a week.

Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

The Law Cafe: I’m all caught up on this show and the last four episodes were a lot better than the previous four episodes and I’m glad that I kept going. I really like the dynamic between the team members. I love how they each bring something different to each case and I really like seeing them all work together to defend those that can’t defend themselves against the rich people. I can’t believe this series is already ending this week. What a ride it’s been.

Young Actor’s Retreat: I need to watch more variety shows. I’m thoroughly enjoying this show. I loved seeing the poor guys being ejected from their seats into the pool, while it was pouring rain and everyone laughing their asses off.

Love in Contract: Things are definitely light and fun in this one and I’m really enjoying it. I like the three main leads and though I feel bad for the second lead and wouldn’t be mad if he got the girl, I’m really rooting for the first main lead. I adore him in this one.

Gaus Electronics: This show is warming up to me. I didn’t care for the first episode because I detest bullying but I’m glad that I stuck it out because this has been a surprising delight for me each week.
