The Wednesday Five: Strong Female Leads that I Love

Posted February 22, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that.

This week’s Wednesday Five will feature Strong Female Leads that I Love. These aren’t just the strong female leads that have been through it and lived to tell the tale. These female leads are strong of mind, might, and strength who could kick your ass. I’d want each and every single one of these women on my team when going into battle. If you’ve watched these dramas and are familiar with these characters then it’s pretty self-explanatory so this is just going to be a straight up list. Enjoy!

Eye Candy Friday: Jang Man Wol from Hotel Del Luna

Posted December 23, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week, I’m featuring Jang Man Wol from Hotel Del Luna. This year was the year that I became a big IU fan. I adore everything about her and in this drama? Jang Man Wol was the bomb so that’s why I’m featuring her this week. Love, love, loved her.

You’re welcome. 🙂

Watch Hotel Del Luna

Hotel Del Luna

Where to Watch: Netflix
Starring: IU, Yeo Jin Goo, Shin Jung Keun
Year Released: 2019
Genre: Fantasy, Horror, Romance

Nestled deep in the heart of Seoul’s thriving downtown sits a curious hotel, the like of which no one has ever seen before. Old beyond measure, the building has stood for millennia, an ever-present testament to the fact that things are not always what they seem. Running this hotel is Jang Man Wol, a greedy, suspicious soul who has spent the past thousand years acting as the establishment’s CEO. Bound to the hotel by a deity who keeps her there to save her from going berserk and self-destruction with rage, hatred and thirst for revenge. Her only hope of escape is if she could let go of her resentment and hatred, and find love. Trapped in her resentment for a betrayal, Man Wol is doomed to spend all of the eternity running this odd establishment, catering to the needs of the most peculiar clientele.

Things take an interesting turn when Goo Chan Sung shows up. Once the youngest assistant manager ever to work at a multinational hotel corporation, Chan Sung finds himself forced to manage the Hotel del Luna because of a deal his father made with Man Wol years ago. Excellent with managing money, he starts to put Jang’s excessive spending and disastrous finance situation in order, that may be exactly what this odd establishment and its cursed CEO needs.

Until next week…enjoy!
