Memories of Alhambra has done it again! Episode 3 was breathtaking, the ending had me shell-shocked, and Park Shin-hye is gorgeous. I love this writer’s flair.

Prison Playbook finished! I genuinely cared so deeply about every single character, to the point where my heart ached and rejoiced right along with them. I’ll really miss this blessing of a drama.

    Great show! All the characters were amazing! Looney broke my heart though!

      It still hurts me to imagine Han-yang’s parents and boyfriend waiting at the restaurant, knowing inside that he had lost to drugs the moment he got out. I really hope Looney was able to fight his way out of addiction eventually. He was honestly trying SO hard when he was in prison.

When you realize writing down “watching kdrama” as your only hobby for Secret Santa isn’t going to help the gift giver at all. Maybe I should pick up something like journaling. That’s much easier.

    They can gift you subscriptions! 😂 Or merch!

    Maybe you could break it down:

    Maxim coffee
    Choco pies
    Subway
    A new coat for every day
    Piggy back rides from Gong Yoo

      An I Hate Tilda shirt
      a finger heart water bottle
      a time machine so you can watch more dramas

      Or just leave it with Gong Yoo – period. That works for me.
      oh wait, I’d take the new coat every day too.

    Now that you told us in OT that you live in So Cal, I think it’s a very legit Secret Santa entry. SoCal is the only place in the country where probably nearly everyone knows what “kdrama” means and where to get related merch! So, good luck with that Yoon Kyun Sang pencil case 🤞🏽

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Yoon Kyun-sang pencil case but that would be amazing!! Maybe an Lee Jong-suk pencil case 😉 I just ended up asking for some kpop merch because that’s generally easier to find. If only I lived in LA. That’s where all the good kdrama stuff is (and all the kpop concerts too). But I’m not very close to the LA area *sob*.
      And you’re right! My Asian circle of friends are born and raised SoCal and we all know kdrama very well, even if not all of us watch it. I was just talking about how its hard to get kdrama merch without ordering online.

        Yes, in my mind I’ve created a pretty obscure Christmas gift for you, one that might not even be available in Korea quite yet LOL. For sure on the Lee Jong Suk items 😊! You name it, I’m sure they make it with LJS’s face on it 👍🏼 Please report back on how your Secret Santa works out!

          Now I’m so excited to know this obscure Christmas gift!! We should really have an online DB Secret Santa. We can write down our top dramas and actors/actresses and then the gift giver can send a list of what they would have gotten gift receiver. It would be so fun 😊

            That’s so cute! “I would have gotten you” . . . a Porsche 911 with Yoon Kyun Sang driving and his cats in a basket in the back! 😸😸 Like that? (I don’t know if they even make 911s anymore 🤣)

            @bbstl I had to search up what a Porsche 911 looked like 🤣. I’m a total cat person, so I’m obsessed with Kyun-sang’s cats.
            If I was going to give you something, it would be all the time in the world to watch all the dramas you ever wanted to watch.

            @sukstan wow, it didn’t occur to me anyone could crush on YKS and not want the cats! 🙀🙀 Thank you for my gift, I think we’ve got this thing nailed!

Yoon Kyun-sang is so handsome 🙈🙈 Clean with Passion Now has started off strong! I loved the first episode. It had just the right amount of quirkiness and heart (and Kyun-sang in suits)!

Illegally listening to this 19+ album, but I’ve been breaking rules since watching dramas before I was 15. MINO’s XX makes me feel alive; his music is nothing short of genius. On Repeat.

I have truly found my happy place in Prison Playbook. How can a drama be so heartwarming and intelligent? I’m in love with everything about it. I really should have watched it earlier.

    I too just completed this drama. It truly had the best characters & storytelling. My initial impression of the drama before watching were soooo wrong.

      I was really surprised with Seung-yoon’s acting actually! I had watched him in a few web dramas, and he did decently, but his acting in this was really well done! I hope after Winner’s tour ends, he’ll be able to be in more acting projects. I love Yoonie <3<3

        He is a good actor and he has improved steadily! I really hope we are able to see more of actor Yoon but I dunno when that will happen… He is preparing for W’s next album and then the North American tour in January… But yes, let’s hope so! 🙏

        I love Yoonie tooooo! And u even have him as your profile pic! So cute!

        Are u a WINNER fan by chance?

I went through enough emotions to last a lifetime watching episode 12 of 100MSFTS. That\’s it guys. I\’m never going to feel anything ever again.

It\’s worrying that I have a small suspicion of incest for 100MSFTS (am I just ignorant?). This drama just keeps getting more controversial. But my heart is fully down the rabbit hole for now.

    The hints they’ve dropping so far – it looks like the case, doesn’t it?

    Especially the part where Tak said “JK shouldn’t be dating MY if MY is the boy from the past”. But I can’t understand JG! He’s the selfish one here. I know he doesn’t want to reveal his past to JK but he’s letting them to fall into a hell together.

      MY mentioned that he had a “little brother”. Maybe because he doesn’t have any memories before he was 5, he could have mistaken the little brother for a little sister (who is JK). JG shot their dad, who was a violent criminal. Then somehow the boy (MY) ran off (maybe because he had witnessed the scene), and JG was only able to find the little girl (JK). JG then decided to raise JK in some twisted way to deal with his guilt.

      In that case, their sex scene is just… Not Okay. BUT I have another theory that makes a lot more sense. MY’s dream of a gun shooting a man is a memory, but the man is not his dad, it’s JK’s dad. MY and JK may have been friends or raised together before MY was 5, so MY was close to JK’s dad, but not directly related. JG shot JK’s dad and MY witnessed it, which is why JG was looking for MY. But still… why would you raise the child of the man you murdered, and not tell her?? JG needs to consider JK’s situation as well and stop being so selfish about his guilt.

        I also find it sick to take in and raise the daughter of a man you killed. That’s just twisted…

        BTW I read somewhere else from a Korean speaker that MY only said it was his “dongsaeng” which didn’t specify the gender, so it’s still unclear.

Happy Eunuch-in-drag promotion!! I was just wondering where that term came from. Is it a reference to a specific drama, because I don\’t think I\’ve seen drag portrayed in Korean media.

The more I think about how Ghost Detective totally ripped off Daniel Choi, the sadder I get. I mean Daniel was so good in School 2013!! What happened 🙁

I have been very very bad. I just binged 7 hours of Chicago Typewriter today. I’ve never felt more liberated, but so chained down by my looming responsibilities. School tomorrow *sobs deeply*
