The Weekly Recap (194)

Posted March 6, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Happy Monday, everyone!

It’s been a pretty quiet week for me and I spent a lot of it reading, watching my shows, and streaming my faves. J-Hope dropped his last song before he goes to the military and it features J. Cole, his long-time inspiration and idol. It’s a song with a hopeful vibe that I think will do a great job of holding the fandom together while he’s in the military. I loved that the music video shows Hoseok going back to his dancing roots while his idol raps on the rooftop. We need all the YouTube streams we can get for this one so if you’re army (and even if you’re not), please stream On the Street with us!

Jungkook went live this last week and my guy had me dying. He sang for us, he reacted to On the Street with us, and then…my guy went to sleep and left us all on Live. He was slumped so much that he started snoring and they had to cut his live off remotely. Haha, he’s out here living his best life and I love that even after he deleted his IG, he goes on Weverse to make sure we know he’s still alive and well. That’s definitely going to be a huge part of army history. Haha.

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

What I Watched

Crash Course in Romance | 3.5 out of 5

Crash Course in Romance aired the final episodes this week and while I wasn’t a big fan of the murder story during the course of the telling of it, I wasn’t a big fan of the way that whole thing played out EVEN MORE. The whole thing with the real Mom had me rolling my eyes as well but everything else? Loved. I’ll be reviewing this one soon so be on the look out for that.

Suchwita: This is my favorite show right now. I just really love listening to the different conversations that Yoongi has with all of his guests. They’ve all been different and I’ve liked how each of them has shared their experiences in the music and acting industry and seeing how flustered Yoongi gets with whatever praise they send his way makes me happy. This week, actor Lee Sung Min came through to promote his new movie, The Devil’s Deal and I enjoyed seeing him swap stories of their early days doing music and acting in their hometown of Daegu. I liked how easy their conversation was and how we learned little tidbits of both Suga and Lee Sung Min’s careers.

Our Blooming Youth: This weeks episodes were cute. I’m much more invested in what’s going on, and I wanted to spank the Crown Prince for kicking my girl out. I did love the way that she was cheering against my guy during the competition even though she only had eyes for him.

Jinny’s Kitchen: I am loving this show so much. I love seeing my k-drama bias, Park Seo Joon rock it out in the kitchen and I absolutely adore my BTS bias as he works his ass off as well. I’m also glad that Woo Shik is finally in Mexico and working with everyone. Poor guy was put immediately to work after traveling for 20 hours to get there and then had serious FOMO while washing those dishes. I haven’t watched very many Korean tv shows but I’m really liking them and this one is cute. They’re a nice break from the dramas.

Taxi Driver 2: We only got one episode this week of Taxi Driver (does anyone know what was up with that?) but I was hooked the entire episode, and that ending? Gah, I really need the next episode like now. I wish that our married couple would have acted less cheesy and more like a married couple but I’ll take whatever kind of affection I can get from them. The way that he proposed to her made my heart skip a beat though, not going to lie, haha. I see that the next episode comes out today so I’ll definitely be tuning in for that. While I haven’t loved every episode (or case, I should say), I’m still really loving having this show back.

The Heavenly Idol: I’m trying really hard to like Rembrary but no lie, he annoys the shit out of me. There’s just something about him that makes me want to kick him in the nuts. But then he saves someone using his divine powers and I forget for a little bit that I’m annoyed with him. I’m really liking Kim Dal though. My girl is just trying to power through everything life throws her way and Rembrary be putting a kink in every single one of her days. I am starting to get soft for all of the members of Wild Animal though. I’ll keep watching this, hoping that this episode will be the episode where Rembrary stops getting on my nerves. So far, it happened yet. Maybe next week though.

Traveler: Because we only got one episode of Taxi Driver this week, I started this show to get more of a Lee Je Hoon fix and I’m glad that I did because I watched three episodes of this one and learned a lot of things. I learned that Ryu Jun Yeol’s English name is Anthony and I loved seeing him maneuver his way around Cuba and then once Je Hoon got there, I freaking adored seeing them together. I haven’t watched very many shows like this but I’m thoroughly enjoying this one.

Eye Candy Friday: Priest Yohan from Island

Posted March 3, 2023 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 Priest Yohan from Island. I think this one is self-explanatory. He fine as hell.

Until next week…enjoy!

The Monthly Recap: January 2023

Posted February 7, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 2 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 wasn’t expecting to be as busy as I was in the month of January. I was in Utah and then flew into L.A. for some family stuff and by the time that I got home, I was too exhausted mentally to focus on any drama watching so February started off really slow…but even with how busy I was in January, I watched hella dramas.

Here’s a rundown of what my month looked like. Check it out…

Fan Letter, Please | 4 out of 5

Actors that Stood Out

Jung Sung Il from The Glory: This guy was a pretty big highlight for me while watching The Glory. I watched the show for Lee Do Hyun and was pleasantly surprised at the introduction of Ha Do Young. He was fine as hell and I’m going to need him to not be a bad guy. Please, please, please don’t be a bad guy.

Cha Eun Woo from Island: Cha Eun Woo as Priest Yohan was such a vibe. He was such a delightful part of the first season. The show, for the most part was on the dark side and Yohan provided a little sunlight that went a long way and I just really liked his character.

Park Jin Young from He is Psychometric: I watched this show randomly with Therese and we were both so smitten with Park Jin Young in it. He was so handsome and just kept getting more handsome and more handsome with each passing episode. Even after the show ended we were still smitten with him. He fine as hell.

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!
