Drama is good for your health! The full article on Women’s Health (Your Brain on a Romcom) also says it can help insomnia, and belly laughs lower blood pressure as much as exercise.

Why I love a feel-good drama.

    Now you gotta tell me which fairytale this is. I need to read/watch it! 😉

      Sorry for late reply, I was down with a horrible flu! Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors😊 He references a lot of myths to talk about human condition — philosophical but very whimsical and witty! He wrote the graphical novel series Sandman (SO GOOD!!!), Good Omens (where an angel and demon team up to stop the apocalypse and the anti-christ gets switched as a baby and is raised by a countryside couple — hysterical!), American Gods (a novel about gods that people forgot), Coraline, . He also wrote childrens books which he reads in Youtube. You can search for him there to get an idea of his style. I LOVE HIM.❤

My 10-yr-old daughter catches a scene from my Kdrama. Alex: β€œWhy is he watching her sleep?” Me: β€œHe secretly loves her.” Alex: β€œThat’s sort of romantic…but mostly creepy.β€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Articles on Sulli\’s death and the dark underbelly of the K entertainment industry makes me think about how lonely our idols must be, and the pain they hide to help US \”escape\”. #RESPECT.

    What do the writers say? Are they blaming the industry and the culture? Or are they still hiding behind the personal issues excuse?

      I see many articles and people coming out against malicious comments. To the extent that someone has proposed a bill after Sulli’s name for taking action against malicious comments. Sadly, all this is happeneing after her death. But yeah many people are realizing that the hate agaibst her was one of the main reasons that lead to her demise.

        If these haters could be slowed down it would be great but they are not the problem, they are consequence. They had to go after the cause, what creates these idols and these haters? Where do their vicious village mentality and anger come from? Until they deal with that, the haters will simply find a new way to spread their violence which their society has told them was their right all along.

        I can’t understand internet trolling and anti-fans. Don’t like someone, then don’t follow. Nobody is forcing anyone to like a song, drama or celeb. What can a normal human being gain from posting vicious comments? Are they paid to be a-holes? I don’t get it.

          I’d never even knew what antifans were before knowing more about their culture. I’d be interested in knowing how much does it even exist in the West.

      Lawmakers are trying to pass an anti cyberbullying bill, and theres a few opinion pieces that quote anonymous industry insiders who criticized a system that neglects lesser-known actors (so big agencies only protect “profitable” stars). And a lot talk about the toxic and judgmental fan culture, where “no dating” is practically an unspoken contract clause, and Kpop idols are sold thru personality not talent (which is why they are given images and then placed in reality shows sl they can act out that image — thus getting fan support even before an album is launched). Just reading about those gives me stress hives.

        It always confused me the mentality that these idols can’t date. Even if I might like an actor/idol that doesn’t mean I can’t allow them to date someone, it’s their life and they deserve happiness like everyone else. But it’s this weird and sickening idea that they belong to the fans so no one can have them. They are placed on these pedestals to just be objects for the fans to love and abuse as they please and it’s quite gross to me, as they are no longer seen as people.

          EXACTLY. Every time I hear the word “scandal” I am like what is so scandalous about 2 consenting adults liking each other?

        That’s why I despise their variety shows, it’s all part of the scam.

    But I am so surprised that she stayed till the end! Did she need subtitles to understand what was being said?

      We’re on Ep 23. It’s a slow watch, since she gets tired after 2 or 3 eps and takes a tea break, then we have to rewind so she remembers where we were…
      There are some confusing bits, maybe bec so much is lost in the subs. Maybe I’ll rewatch, or is there a good episode guide? But Ma doesn’t mind, she’s just enjoying the ride. And I’m enjoying her enjoyment😊 she gets bored so easily, but this really entertains her. If you know my Ma, it’s the highest drama praise possible!!!😂

Work is so crazy-toxic-busy, and business planning sessions feel like those sageuk scenes with ministers chanting, \”Your majesty!\” 😪 (Modern translation: Noted.) #WhatWouldHae-RyungDo

It’s barely 9:30 on a Monday and I’m already stressed. Chanting this like a meditation mantra!

Me realizing that my two favorite shows ended this week.
Goodbye, Melo and Rookie Historian. Does this mean I have to do adulting now?

    Ahhh I hate that you pointed it out TT.TT. I’ve been rewatching the last 2 eps of Melo and some cuts from Rookie to heal my withdrawal. I’m NOT ready to move on from our beloved shows!
