The Yearly Recap: 2022

Posted January 4, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

If you know me then you know that I’m a huge nerd. I track the shit out of everything that I do so that I can keep track of what I’m spending my time on. When I was reading a hundred books a year, I tracked what I was reading, what genres I was reading the most and least of, and now that I’m really into watching k-dramas, as you can guess, I tracked my k-drama watching.

I’m on year three of my k-drama adventures and I’m still a nerd so I’m still tracking the shit of my k-drama watching. I’m tracking a lot of things, to be honest. What kind of dramas I’m watching, which tropes, which actors & actresses I’m enjoying, and all sorts of other things as well. I thought that 2022 was a quality year in dramas and there weren’t a whole lot of dramas that I absolutely hated. I’m counting that as a win.

Quick Stats of the Year

Dramas Watched: 64 | Dramas Completed: 47 | Dramas Dropped: 14 | Episodes Watched: 808
Favorite Drama: Alchemy of Souls | Least Favorite Drama: Love is for Suckers

The Breakdown

By Month

January: 6
February: 0
March: 1
April: 4
May: 4
June: 6
July: 9
August: 6
September: 4
October: 4
November: 12
December: 6

This year, I went with the format of drama watching that I used last year. I watched more new shows instead of binge-watching older ones and I really enjoy watching shows that way. I find that I watch more shows with this format so I think that I’m going to stick with it. November was my best month in k-drama watching with February being the worst month in k-drama watching. I should say that those numbers are for dramas that I completed and I was still watching a bunch of dramas in February, I just didn’t complete any so that one is a little tricky.

By Genre

Comedy: 2
Coming of Age: 1
Family: 2
Fantasy: 5
Horror: 1
Legal: 1
Melodrama: 10
Romance: 25
Suspense: 15

2022 was the year that I jumped in and fell down the Suspense k-drama rabbit hole and I’m here for more of these kinds of shows. I’m still pretty solidly stuck in the romance genre and being the kind of person that I am, that is probably never going to change. I’m all about romance!

By Source

Disney Plus: 1
HiTV: 9
Hulu: 3
Netflix: 24
Prime Video: 1
Viki: 25

I didn’t know that Hulu and Prime Video had newly released k-dramas but I know now and I will definitely be watching more of their offerings in the new year. I’m low key excited about that. It’s not surprising to me that I watched most of my dramas on Netflix and Viki. That’s probably not going to change either. They both offer most of everything that I want and need to watch so I will probably continue watching most of my stuff on those platforms. Hopefully this year I’ll give more of the other platforms a shot.

The Wednesday Five: My K-Drama Besties

Posted October 26, 2022 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 my top K-Drama Besties. These are some of my favorite k-drama characters that I would love to be besties with in real life. These characters have captured my heart and I adore them to pieces and know that we would have the best of times if we were really best friends.

1. Ji Eun Tak from Goblin

I want to be besties with Eun Tak because if anyone needed someone in their corner, it was her. I mean, I know that she eventually finds her found family but before she found them, she was living life on her own and I got a mean mouth so I could have stood up for her at school, I could have fought some bitches for her, especially her cousin. I could have definitely fought that bitch. I wanted to protect Eun Tak so much because she was such a sweet person, even with the shitty hand she was dealt. She’s a much better person than I am.

2. Naksu, from Alchemy of Souls

Naksu is a bad bitch and I always want to be around bad bitches. Naksu is such a bad bitch that she could protect me from anything and everyone. And since I have this big ol’ mean mouth, with Naksu, I could run it without fear of consequence because having Naksu as a best friend, she’d handle all of my light weight, haha. Let’s not talk about my love for her boo thang. LMAO.

3. Sung Deok Sun from Reply 1988

Deok Sun is one of the funniest and most fun female leads that I’ve ever watched. She was funny as shit, silly as shit, and just looks like she’d be a good time, no matter what we were doing. She’d be the best best friend because of everything I mentioned. We all need a goofy bestie to make life more interesting and Deok Sun fits that bill perfectly. Let’s not talk about my love for her boo thang either, haha.

4. Na Hee Do from Twenty Five, Twenty One

Ain’t nobody as loyal to the soil as Na Hee Do. She’s one of those best friends that take all of your secrets to the grave so she’d be a great bestie. She’s also really good at fencing so I’d carry her bags so that I could travel all over the world so she could play and I could see the world. It would be a fun friendship, I promise. I would be her loudest cheerleader at all of her matches, too. See? So much fun.

5. Jin Yeong Seo from A Business Proposal

I really loved Jin Yeong from A Business Proposal. I thought she was a great best friend to the main female lead. She was thoughtful, she was funny, and just the right amount of silly that would be a good time. She’s the kind of bestie that sleepovers were made for. We would have so much fun together. Our girls nights in would be full of laughter for sure.

There you have it. The five k-drama characters that I want to be besties with. Who’s on your list?
