    Sunja is the protagonist, they wrote it as if this story revolves around Hansu, it doesn’t…then Isak, Mojasu, Noah..they are going to ruin this at this rate

    Also Isak was from Joseon, North Korean, hence Mojasu is korean by blood…these idiots really thought it was a good idea to cast a Japanese actor there?

    If you’re on a creepy mood, School Nurse Files. If you’re more into funny but can deal with a bit of creepy, then Zombie Detective!

    Brahms has a good first section and a horribly angst-filled middle but the last episode is wonderful.
    Zombie Detective is just laugh out loud funny with so many references to other shows and the fact it doesn’t take itself seriously.
    And if you want real fun – try Pegasus Market.

        Pegasus Market was this hidden jewel that came out of nowhere and I laughed and laughed so much. I can’t highly recommend it enough!

Book challenge day 7: A book that makes you laugh

Bill Bryson’s books make me laugh but In a sunburned country is my favorite. I can’t read his books in public for fear of laughing out loud.

Just finished Pachinko. I loved the writing style, every word was intentional. I highly recommend this book.

    I read this last year. I found it an interesting book because of how it introduced (what was to me) a completely alien – but real – sub-culture to an English-speaking audience. I found the saga form just about okay, having read much better versions (e.g., Galsworthy’s Forsyte books), but it was a fresh piece of writing overall, I agree. I lent my copy to and recommended this to many friends, who all loved it!

    Re-started season 1. OMG it was one of the earliest kdramas I watched, and I had no idea how subtle and finely made it was. Cho Seung-woo is a stunning actor.

Coreyah.

According to the band, the name represents “inheritance,” and that’s evident in the way this six-piece presents old or traditional Korean music with a modern

Swing dancing/music + James Stewart + June Allyson = one of may favorites

    I love these two actors! I should watch this asap.

    Have you seen Swing Time, with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? A bit earlier (1930s) but their dancing is superb.
