ep 2 for me :). Though I blame myself for reading recap first. The same happened with ep 1: when I finally turned it to watch I got borried and fast-forwarded most of the show, stopping at some places, turning back to recap and only then noting :so thaaat's what should have been funny". Hope, next one is better :) It looks so from the recap.

Hi everyone * waves *
In the middle of ep 2 Level 7. If you ignore the fact it doesn't have the same vibes as the movie, the episodes are actually pretty funny.

It is not rubbing me the wrong way. I don't quite see the chemistry but the acting all round is good. Not to mention it's a zippy little 2 episodes and I am curious enough now to know how the story goes.

In the meantime, happy chatting everyone.

For those who watched In Between like me last week, I am done. No regrets watching it. Got me in a great mood. Now I am all ready to tackle Korean dramas again. Nothing like a mood lifter drama to get you out of a drama funk.

Talking about uplifter dramas which reconcile you with Dramaland: Pricele$s ep 10 was perfect in my book. Perfect drama, perfect ending. Woah! Didn't feel a feeling of completion like that in a long time. I'm marrying that drama & waiting for the Special.

Priceless was indeed lovely! Always so funny. I did rather like how it ended - Karina's romance nightmare (hahahaha!!!!) and the fact that our three besties stuck together, and how they dealt with the whole Miracle debacle and the older half-brother.

Maybe it wouldn't happen like that in real life, but it felt good, not forced or anything!

I just started In Between and am really enjoying it! I am only like on episode 5 so I am hoping it keeps its light and fun tone. (The main couple is so adorable when they are on screen together).

I am a little aprehensive because of the dragging and angst that many of last couple of T-dramas I have watched devolved into. (ie. Fated to Love you).

Happy Friday! Apparently we're getting ice and sleet all morning, so I hope my commute won't be too bad.

I'm sad School 2013 is ending. I feel like I just fell in love with it. Dang Jang Nara being all talented and busy and stuff. ;)

Also enjoying Flower Boy next door... I felt kinda meh about it at first, but now I'm getting into it. I enjoy it while it's on, but I can wait between episodes, if that makes sense.

Watching High Kick Through The Roof and accidentally spoiled myself. Whoops. I need to learn how to not click on links, no matter how tempting they seem to be.

So, SO sad that School is ending. I know extensions practically never do anything good for quality, but man, now that the last episode's coming up? I kind of wish the show had gotten one after all.

I'm curious how exactly they're going to end it, though. With so much focus on character development, I wonder how it's going to pull off giving a sense of a closure without tying too neat a bow on everything. (I do have confidence that whatever they do, it'll work and be good. And that's why I'm going to miss you so much, Show.)

Oh gods the heartbreak when I realised that School 2013 had only 16 episodes and not the 20 I thought it had at first.....

I haven't had anticipatory missing-it ache this strong since Arang, we're nowhere near ready to let go of these characters yet - I started watching it anticipating some fluff with heart, but it turned out to be SO much more.

FBND, now that one I can't get enough of - I save an episode to watch over weekends so I don't have to wait too long between episodes, ha. I'm kind of in love with our heroine, and with all her boys - but especially Ke-geum, his hyperactive bunny self is adorable.

I feel School 2013 is going to be my top drama (certainly K-drama) of 2013 and we're only in January.

But I don't see what could beat it. It's got everything I need in a drama. A high-school set story (my favourite kind of setting). Fabulous characters. Bromance galore (that ramyun eating scene in the most recent episode was just pure awesome). Wonderful eye candy. Tackling real problems and problems that matter and should be tackled and often aren't. It's always felt very true to life and slice-of-life to me (even if there are some cultural difference that I can't quite relate to - but that's okay.)

And doesn't contain anything of the things I hate in K-dramas like romance competitions with evil or irritating leads that drive you bonkers.

I'm replying a little late but when i saw your comment on Friday, it got me thinking. so, I was wondering, if anyone's checking back, what would be the teen pregnancy rate in Korea? Because if sex is a big deal in that students in that high school expect to have it, then it should be high enou to be viewed as a societal concern, right? And then it would be natural to have both sex and its aftermath an issue in a show about school life.

But if having sex in high school is pretty taboo, then the most we could expect to see is some actual dates between some of the students. (Which would not be a bad thing, especially since k dramas have been reminding me what dates look like...)

As fr homosexuality, that could've been something they could've tackled in extra episodes, either with a student coming out or a new transfer student. Or a student from a different ethnic group who'd been raised in Korea.

I'm glad they tackled learning disability at least with Young Woo.

Hello everyone. Happy friday. I'm watching the jdrama "Piece". It's ok so far. I love how different the look and feel of a jdrama is compared to a kdrama. Though my first love is still the world of kdramas.

I want Kame to appear in some tatta hitotsu no koi type drama soon. Or maybe they could remake that as a kdrama? I'd like to see Kim Bum in that role.

Speaking of whom, oohh so excited for that winter that blows.

I am also digging around for more Taiwan and J-dramas myself. After watching probably over 100 K-dramas (in some cases with a lot of fast forward and skipping), I am starting to wish for some new themes, but a lot of the k-drama seems stuck in a rut.

BTW, has anyone EVER EVER EVER seen a K-drama where someplace in the series someone did NOT mention using honorifics? Only one I can think of "My girlfriend is a Gumiho", but I may have missed it.

Happy Friday everyone!

This is my slow season at work and I have been taking advantage by watching some older dramas that are on my list.

Damo - Unbelievable that a drama that is a decade old could knock me off my feet. I'm still in awe.

Also watched Delightful Girl Chun Hyang and a little gem called Thank You. Loved them both.

I'm not sure yet about Level 7, will see how it shapes up. What is everyone else watchng?

DGCH was my first introduction to Jae Hee and Um Tae-woong! It's still up there as one of my favorites, and helped promote my love of a man who confidently wears pink!

"Thank You" was one of the first kdramas I watched, and it still ranks among my favorites. I loved that it was rural and tackled some difficult issues. It was also a major reason for me becoming a fan of Jang Hyuk.

I thought Delightful Girl Chun Hyang was alright. It had a couple themes that tend to annoy me consistently, but I did make it through the whole thing...so obviously it kept my interest.

I haven't seen Damo yet. Working through Warrior Baek Dong Soo right now, which has been fantastic. Am thinkin' that I may actually be a sageuk fan without realizing it.

Also watching FBND (so cute) and reading recaps for CDDA (it's too annoying to actually watch).

I've also tried CSL7, but not sure if I care enough to keep watching.

Who thought this was going to be like Salaryman?
* Me raises hand *
Seriously freaked out it's a 24 episode drama. This is one where even from the beginning I say, please no extension. It's not even makjang. It doesn't come off sounding makjang but man, it does sound like a serious drama doesn't it?

Individual apps on Roku are called "channels"

So, there is a Netflix channel, a Hulu channel, a Dramafever chennel, etc. Most of the channels themselves are free, but a lot of the channels are subscription services.

And I hope that if Viki is almost ready to go that they've improved their interface. It really needs improvements. As of last week, it just showed categories and then had every episode of every show available on Roku in the category.

Netflix, Hulu, DramaFever, KDrama/CrunchyRoll etc. give you a drill down from category > show > episodes

Also, I believe it was missing search as well.

Ok I tried looking for Viki on my Roku channels and still could not find it! Could you please PLEASE tell me what category to look for, I have gone to TV/Movies and even tried Foreign and could not find it at all!

The downside of Roku is that there is no search functionality for channels - seriously?!

Roku is the best streaming device for internet movies ever. They have approximately 750 channels, 8000+ if you count music sub-sub-channels.

Supposedly the Viki channel will be ready for testing in 2-3 weeks, but as someone else mentioned, their interface kind of sucks so it could be longer.

I just cannot get into School 2013, so gave it up. On the hook for the last two episodes of Alice. Been watching "100 year inheritance" - and as of the latest episode, it STILL has the most evil MIL ever! (Even more evil than last week).

Looks like "Queen of Ambition" is finally starting to get really down and dirty, with betrayals, male prostitution, and gold diggers going for the gold big time. I just don't see any happy endings for this, but pretty early to tell.

Well, "Queen of Ambition" WAS from the guys who made "Daemul", and I wasn't surprised when I found out about it (clue: Kwon Sang-woo).

And the fact that the plot was a 180-degree reversal from "Daemul". From first lady-president to first lady. And from slacker-to-lawyer to scorned lover-to-gigolo/callboy. Who would've thought it's "Innocent Man" all over again.

Plus KSW stripping makes my mouth water and all sorts of tizzies. XD And his waypeu's cameo. XD

And OT, I have the heeby-jibbies that "Daemul" was kind of a premonition that Korea WOULD have Park Geun-hye. But then again any similarity ends there, since Seo Hye-rim is a far cry from Park Geun-hye.

Hope you all had a better night than me. I ended up drinking way to much and throwing up. Had to leave early.
And umm yeah I don't get drunk so this was a rare experience for me. I don't like being drunk.
I'm ok now and woke at 5am completely sober and even made half my 9am lecture. Yay me haha.

And another thing. It looks like my prediction that Hot Korean Guy was either the universe being perfect and wonderful or the cruelest trick ever is true. It is a trick as I knew it would be. I just got stupid for a bit haha.
Hot Korean guy has got back together with his ex girlfriend over the holidays.
Said girlfriend is INSANELY pretty. Like she's a perfect blonde model looking girl. They dated for two years. And I always believed they would get back together cause she's mega hot. Turns out I was right.

I'm ok with this. And it wasn't which caused the drinking by the way. I found out while completely drunk. I smiled and said I was happy for him. It's better this way haha.

Sorry about all this rambling. This message was meant to be funny stories from tuesday which was a great day out but cause of last nights drunkness I'm feeling a bit down on going out. Really don't like getting drunk haha.

Anyway hope everyone has a good week!!! Love xxx

I have a couple of Tween nieces that are on Facebook, and their posts are like in a whole different world - and a lot reminds me of K-drama scenes :D

13-year olds saying things like "I hope your love lasts forever" just has a huge makjang feeling to it all :)

Leaf!!! *hugs*

Aww... Way to find out just when you're drunk. :( But as you've said, it's better that way.

Sorry to hear about that. I should have done my special wish-your-friend-very-good-luck dance, though. Might have made a difference.

As I always say... hey, they're not yet married. And if they've broken up once, they can break up again. ;) LOL.

Let me know if their relationship gets on the rocks, then I'll do my wish-your-friend-very-good-luck dance. Or I might do it for you now so things could speed up. :P

No matter what the news is... Happy Friday chingu!

YAY IT'S FRIDAY!!! Haha. Finished my insanely boring lectures for the week WHOOT!

And haha. Yeah... they could always break up again. But I doubt that would make much difference for me haha. I'm fine with it. It was always too good to be true.
I just need to sort myself out so I don't massively fail Uni lol.

And save your dance for important stuff ok? <3
Thanks <3

I'm not sure this will make you feel better, but ...

My 24 year old daughter is in an on-again/off-again relationship with a Korean boy. I like him well enough, but HIS ex happens to be my daughter's best friend... which makes things complicated. I keep my mouth shut, sit back with popcorn and watch our own personal melodrama unfold.

Anyway, I told her dating him was fine, but marriage? ... well? ... does she really want a Korean mother-in-law? o_O

That's like... complicated... emotions and stuff...

Did it ever get less complicated and better?

Urgg... I feel like my no relationship thing is gonna last the rest of life. I can't see myself dropping it haha.
I totally was not made for this stuff.

I'll just stay to my dramas haha.

It's still ongoing, but currently my daughter is backing off the guy in favor of keeping her friend happy. I think she's not into the guy enough to risk losing her friend. It would be nice if she'd stick with that, but the guy keeps calling and texting her... that's kind of hard to resist.

I noticed more leading actors are taking 2nd or 3rd leading roles lately? Is this a new trend? If it is, I hope it sticks. I find some none first leading roles more challenging and involves varied emotions which requires more skill from the actor.

Happy Friday, Dramabeaners!

I'm currently half in bed, cause I'm (half-)ill. This is how I get the flu: no real fever, but very dizzy, tired, and heavy, heavy limbs and head ... well, it could be worse.

Apart from that, I was challenged by latteholic to do a "Top 5 Shower Scenes" post. Great idea! But ... I currently have over 20 shower scenes on my list! How the heck should I choose only 5?! I also decided to do a spin-off post, a "Top 5 Swimming Pool Scenes" post. Same problem there ... there's tons of those! haha. I might turn them into "Top 20" posts.

Painful to the undergraduate students, mwahahaha! It's also very boring, because you have to walk around the room and make sure nobody's cheating. You stare at the same people for 2 hours, you can't talk, and even reading is difficult, but hey, it's a paid job, and I need the money.
Sorry for the double post, by the way, I received an error message when I posted the first one, so I'm not sure how both ended up being accepted.
So yes, FBND - consider me hooked. I like everyone, but most of all - Park Shin Hye. She does the cutesy walk again, but the girl can emote. I love how she goes from lost in deep thoughts to spunky when speaking to Enrique.=) Also, she's cute and I want to pinch her cheeks.

I really hope Ad Genuis Lee Taebek is a worthy successor to School 2013. I liked the lead in Grand Chef Kimchi.

But w/o Kim Woo Bin and also the whole story in School which had really engaged me, I feel a bit drama-less and lost like I'm going to have to read a book or something.

On another note, I got Sword With No Name from Amazon, so I'm psyched for that this weekend. And has anyone seen The King and the Clown? Excellent sageuk film with Lee Jun-ki on Netflix.

If you have access to netflix, that's where I watched it. And google turned up a stream here: http://www.gooddrama.net/korean-movie/the-king-and-the-clown-watch/1-5

Can't attest to quality, but a spot check had all parts of at least the first playlist subbed and working. If netflix isn't a good option for you, that looks like a decent alternative. :)

Hi All!
Wow! I marathoned king of dramas on the train to/from work this week. At first I soooo wasn’t feeling the love, but somehow it just got to me and when I look back now turns out it was really good. The last sentence somehow made me cry, so I was sitting on the train trying to sniffle quietly, but it obviously didn’t work because I started getting lots of stares and an old lady asked if I was ok! I came home with puffy eyes and told mum I had hayfever.

I’ve also started Alice in Cheongdamdong but I’ve kind of stopped cause I’m worried it’s going to make me feel all nervous and icky – I’ve been reading ahead and I’m scared its going to be one of those dramas where the couple breaks up in ep 14 because one of them has told lies from day 1. I HATE it when that happens! But I do love a good cinderella story, so can someone let me know if it’s not like that??!!

In other news, I’m organising a girls trip with one of my best friends before she gets married. She really likes period dramas but we’ve watched all the main ones. Can any recommend one that’s probably not that well known or that’s very new?? Thanks in advance :-)

Hello all.

Hope all is well with you or you have some great dramas to take comfort in.

I'm watching My Love Madame Butterfly and Flower Boy Next Door.

Following the recaps for 1N2D, Alice in C, JWC, School. Thanks recappers.

Anyone try the Korean specials? I tried but they were luckluster I gave up.

In fact this week there was so little KDrama to watch I started watching Japanese ones.

The Korean Specials: A lot of coal and a few diamonds in it. I remember a recent one with Ji Jin Hee where he was a barber/killer (doesn't show on his filmo: O.O). Also the Lee Jong Suk one "When I was The Prettiest".

Me too! (see post 28 for my jdrama list) I am definitely a newbie jdrama viewer, I really liked everything I watched this week. I am not sure that I want to compare j with k dramas but for the sake of discussion my thoughts are:
a few jdramas I watched were more fantasy comedy and caricature-esque than the kdramas, and definitely more bizarre. Perfect for the mood I was in all week. Some being based on anime that would make sense.
Maybe it's me, but the lighting in jdramas seemed so ethereal, it was noticably present and set the tone of scenes and entire dramas. Even the new jdrama Biblica...has distinct lighting. At first I thought it was my computer angle, but the lighting has a definite presence. I like its effect/quality a lot.
So far I lean towards the acting in kdramas, perhaps just personal preference. General observations of my jdrama debut so far. Liking dramalandia all around!

Just wondering if anyone has some jdrama recs for the 2012 seasons? It occurred to me that Rich Man Poor Woman is literally the only thing I finished from last year, and that seems like a tragedy.
