I thought it would be a crime to not share how giddy I am over the fact that Shin Min Ah is playing a photographer, and her love interest is Lee Je Joon! I apparently don’t consider leaving my blog to the dust mites a more severe crime but eh, what can you do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Continue reading “Dramascope (Feb 2017)”

Dramascope (April 2014)

I’m back! These past few months I haven’t been particularly keen on writing my thoughts about dramas. Not that they haven’t been interesting, in fact, this past month it has been quite the opposite. 2014’s drama lineup is so much better than 2013’s. Continue reading “Dramascope (April 2014)”

Dramascope Year 2013: The Year of Iffy Endings

Dramascope Year 2013 Main pic

This year was unlike any other year for me regarding my hobby of watching Asian dramas. I was happy to be able to fully immerse myself in the drama blogging world and connect with others who share the same interest as me. Although this will mark my 3rd year since I began this hobby, this was the first year I became even more invested in analyzing dramas and appreciating them for what they are worth. You may not have watched every single drama that has aired this year, but I hope like I did, you have found one drama that will stay close to your heart for years to come (pssst, Heartless City xD). One pattern I did notice in many of the dramas shown in 2013 were the ambiguous endings. So many of them left us viewers puzzled, angry, and utterly disappointed because the writer decided to leave it up to us to practically guess what the heck happened. I’m not a fan of those type of endings unless they are done right, but hopefully next year we will be able to see explicit closures… I don’t want to have to end up writing my own fanfics in order to get the ending that I want. With all ado, cheers to all of us who have managed to survive yet another year of used up drama tropes, hot oppa’s, nutty families, heinous villains, pesky second leads, and the slew of other bitersweet stuff that we all love and enjoy to indulge in.

Dramascope (August 2013)

A handful of dramas have ended this month and as much as we hate to see their closures, there seems to be a number of new ones rolling in to yet again have us hooked to our screen. I definitely enjoyed the round of dramas that broadcasted during this summer and I’m hoping one would come along that will sweep me off my feet even more than the previous ones already have. Here’s a condensed review of the dramas that have passed and the ones that have now started to premiere. Continue reading “Dramascope (August 2013)”

Dramascope (July 2013)

Dramascope july2013

Cheers to a new segment that I’m starting on this blog. I’m a little shy to call it a new segment when it’s very unoriginal, but until I can come up with something spectacular, this will have to do. It’s very similar to my commentary series where I try to keep an eye on how pedantic my writing can become. I’m currently watching 12 dramas because I’m crazy, and to write about all of them means that I really have no life. So my dramascope posts will be dedicated to first impressions, ending thoughts, or just random babbling about dramas I don’t want to dedicate an entire post to. Also, not sure why I find that breaking grammar rules is cool..just look at my blogger name. Continue reading “Dramascope (July 2013)”
