    One of the many reasons why I love this drama was it’s rawness and how it was unafraid to tell an imperfect story about imperfect people

I downloaded episodes of My Fellow Citizens to watch when I’m miles from Wifi and so far it’s keeping me crackling. Siwon’s face is pure elastic. His wife is <3 and Kudo Hina (^_^) is extra.

Why you should watch WWW: Search

I’m sorry, I need this epic-ness on my wall.

I just finished WWW: Search and I’m at a loss for words. This drama was utterly spectacular with incredible empowerment, characters, development, aesthetics and a stellar OST that I’ve had on repeat. Usually when I’m done with a kdrama all I can think about are the loose ends and lost potential. But WWW shocked me by being utterly amazing in every aspect. I relished the realistic dialogues, the engrossing work place dynamics, the changing alliances and brilliant details. I know this drama isn’t one for everyone. I’d personally classify it as Josei (a Japanese manga classification) instead of straight-up romance. All I know is that this drama was bliss for me, down to sleekness of it all, the epic trope reversals and the mindblowing OSTs that suited every mood under the rainbow. I’m happy with the way it ended but sad to let it go at the same time.

The moment I take a break to catch up with real life, Dramaland decides to throw 1058839 premiers at me on top of my billion drama long To-Watch pile.
How do I keep up 😭😰

So I have a week to cram up for 3 very important finals, one of which contains almost Einstein level mathematics, attend 2 interviews for next year, submit all my formal documents and complete 1 shift. University stresses the heck out of me. Mood = fatigue.

I had originally sent a submission for the theme of the month but since I wasn’t published I thought I’d share my favs here, with some of my graphics to spice things up.
PART I
The best mini dramas make us care about the poignant characters that grace our screens for a few hours. They manage to make us feel for the tiny worlds that flash by in a couple of episodes. Binggoo is one such drama. Instantly within the first few seconds we’re catapulted to a boisterous 1979 with The Ronettes’ ‘Be My Baby’ playing in the background whilst a love-struck man runs to surprise his girlfriend.
Binggoo was a sweet, fantastical ride that handled time travel with a deft hand by creating characters we cheered on and teared up for because we were so utterly invested in their stories. It’s one of those few mini dramas that detailed their mains with snippets of back stories, realistic motivations and troubles, and growth arcs that left us stunned. Love was painted in its finest with the eager-eyed invincible young love between our star-crossed lovers to the devastating familial love that pains when family fades away or to friendship that leaves a mark even decades later. It’s a fun zippy mini drama that I’d recommend to anyone who’d like to sit back and chill with a show that’s as softly sweet as a lullaby.

PART II
Buzzcut Love
was a mini drama that I’d class as sunny, optimistic and ride you could breeze through despite the fact that it dealt with cancer. Polar opposites, I know. Yet, Ji Yool wedged her bubbly self into our hearts from the very moment she exclaimed ‘I love it’ as she stared back into the mirror at her electric, almost eccentric bright orange buzzcut. A whirlwind of a journey that covered loving oneself, feeling vulnerable and experiencing the bliss the freedom of life gives, it’s an unforgettable adventure that leaves you mushy and grateful.

PART III

I’m probably bending the rules a little, but I couldn’t not include Girls Generation 1979. Maybe I have a thing for 1979, but at 8 episodes (probably a midi-drama?) this was a cracktastic swirlie of laughter, friendship and the pangs of growing up whilst dealing with being a hot-blooded teenager during an uncertain time. The drama was whimsical, heartwarming and slice-of-lifeish which featured some of the best decade music hits. Sure, Jung Hee wasn’t the most selfless or loveable heroine, but she was realistic as a teen whose world revolved around a crush who didn’t like her back. The romance in the drama was a relay race of tag, (you’ll understand if you’ve watched it) but it was also sweet and endearing.
The social attitudes were so different back then and the drama makes it a point to create this old ambient atmosphere by driving in the different perceptions using true-to-life posters, attitudes, a curfew, war prep classes etc. So again, a recommendation I’d whole heartedly give.

Had Korean food for the first time!
Started off with steamed buns with bulgogi and ended with bogum bibimbap. 🤤🤤🤤

Happy Easter Beanies!

Celebrated today by gorging at an all you can eat Chinese buffet. After 3 plates, 2 hours and 2 ice creams I’m stuffed. I didn’t even bother with chopsticks after plate no.1 😋

So I just finished IU’s first short: Love Set and I’m 99% sure she and Bae Doona have some romantic history between them and IU is still in love with her that’s why she opposes the marriage. That’s why there was so much symbolism: the peach, the sounds, the sweat, the blood down her leg, the linger of the thumb touch at the end.

Been of DB for a while so I jumped into Light In Your Eyes expecting a time-travel romance but got a slice-of-life, bittersweet realness mixed with incredible writing and a thousand feels. I’m a mess but I love it.

Secret Terrius is so adorkable! 💕 Just the fluff I need when I’m about to go cray cray from stress.

Thanks so much DB for such an incredible wacky drama-loving community and for publishing my review. I’d given up hope but now I’ve got my Daesung groove back on.

2018 was the year I finally emerged from my underground cave and became active on DB and honestly, I’m in love with this hilariously snarky and equally drama addicted safe haven. *showers love to all the amazing beanies who’ve made this year so much better* 💖💕

    I had noticed it when I saw the separate character posters. They have been cropped in an unfortunate way to make this later poster.

      I guess I haven’t seen the individual posters then T__T The show still manages to catch me off guard in the best way possible though.

        Sorry that I don’t remember where I saw them.

        It really is the best. Honestly it is the ONLY show in ten years that I am live-watching! And not only that, I had no intention of watching it at all, because I can’t handle watching too disturbing shows, but I knew this writer writes great thrilling stories so I was reading the recaps. After 5/10 episodes I couldn’t resist anymore and started watching.

          10 years WOW! Exactly- CoN is such a thrilling masterpiece, it sucks you into their world. There’s so much carefully crafted suspense and mystery along with incredible acting. I’m in love. If the ending is as amazing as the rest of the story so far this might be a 9.5 or a 10.

Kim Sun ah is blowing me away with Children of Nobody. Like blowing me away. I have no idea whether to trust her delusions or not because she seems like an unreliable narrator. And I’m here for every second of it.

    SAME. I feel like the little girl in the green dress is her younger comatosed sister. Btw, have you watched the recent episode?

      No, I’m still in ep8 but I’m catching up very fast! It’s such an intricate web of possible deceit and pain that I pause to take a breather and figure things out. I think the girl is her sister too but then wouldn’t she have recognised her from looking at the photo album? (Step) Mom definitely knows who she is, so maybe she’s a friend who was abused or some relative?

        I see. Hope you watch Ep 9 soon. Don’t want to spoil anything yet but would like to discuss this theory further with you.
