The Weekly Recap (183)

Posted November 14, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

Yesterday was my birthday and I celebrated it exactly the way that my introverted ass wanted. I got dressed up in all of my birthday presents and hung out at home, haha. Bren ordered my meals for the day, I FaceTimed with my Dad, and then I spent the day working on my photocard collection, watching k-dramas, and working on blog posts and it was such a delightful way to spend the day and I am the happiest of campers right now! I’m blessed with another year of life and with the knowledge that I am cared for and loved by loads of people. And yesterday was a big day in these Borahae streets. It was the anniversary of when Namjoon and Yoongi first moved in with each other, and the anniversary of when V coined the term, “I Purple You”. AND…Bangtan dropped the dance practice for Run BTS.

All in all, it was a fantastic day and I loved how low key it was. With the holidays coming up, I’ll be traveling back and forth to California for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I was really looking forward to relaxing on my own this weekend. I even had a cinnabon birthday cake this year and that is just the perfect icing on my perfect birthday.

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

What I Watched

Little Forest | 4.5 out of 5
Minari | 4 out of 5
One Ordinary Day | 4 out of 5
Confidential Assignment | 3.5 out of 5
Rookie Cops | 4 out of 5

I binge-watched two dramas from beginning to end this week and enjoyed the heck out of both of them. I cried so much during One Ordinary Day but I thought that Kim Soo Hyun did such a fabulous job with his entire character arc. That show had me at the edge of my seat throughout the entire thing and my heart went out to him in the end and gah…just so good. Rookie Cops was another delightful drama. I adored all of the characters, loved their whole squad, and even shed some tears but enjoyed the whole thing.

I watched a few movies this week as well and enjoyed all of them. My favorite of the bunch was probably Little Forest. I really enjoyed both Kim Tae Ri and Ryu Joon Yeol in this one.

Bad Prosecutor: This was a fun drama. I enjoyed the entire thing and was bummed that it wrapped up this week. I really enjoyed D.O. and was pretty happy with the entire thing.

Behind Ever Star: Episodes 1 & 2 dropped for this one this week and already, I’m interested. I’m interested in seeing what happens to the company, I’m very interested to see what the heck the connection between Ma Tae Oh and So Hyun Joo is. I’m definitely going to continue this one.

Curtain Call: I got halfway through the third episode and I’m not very interested in what’s going on right now. I thought about continuing in hopes that it’ll pick up for me but ehh, November is going to be busy enough for me without forcing myself to wait for a show to pick up eventually so I dropped this one, my first dropped drama of November.

Love in Contract: This drama ended this week and I was so sad to see it go. I have to come love the hell out of all three main leads and the rest of the cast. This was such a sweet show and I’m SO glad that I watched it.

Love is for Suckers: It’s been a while since I watched an episode and I’m a little sad that the new episodes that dropped this week were a little on the boring side. Actually, not boring but maybe my interest in this show has waned because I still don’t quite like the female lead? Hmm…I’ll finish this one til the end though.

May I Help You?: Holy cow, I’m REALLY loving this show. There were times when I wanted to spank Dong Joo last week but I’m well over all of that now. I adore both of the main leads and when he gave her a ride back to their house and put her arms around his stomach, telling her to hold on tight? *swoon* And don’t even get me started on when he tells her about her hands. AHHHHH, LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Also, holy shit!!! His worlds are colliding! I can’t wait for next week!

The First Responders: I knew that I was going to like this one and after only two episodes, I’m hooked. I am looking forward to sticking with this drama. I’m enjoying all three of the main leads so far.

Revenge of Others: This drama kicked off this week and I’m intrigued. I have a lot of questions just from the first two episodes and they all center around black hoodies and the main male lead. Just in the world is going on??
