About NewKDramaAddict

Just started watching dramas Jun 2011 and now have been totally sucked into watching not only KDramas but TDramas as well as JDramas, Thai Lakorns, Chinese dramas and an occasional telenovela. But I talk about EVERYTHING!! Follow me on pinterest (http://pinterest.com/newkdramaaddict/). Facebook is for family so I hardly talk about dramas unless I'm a member of a group. Check out my Movie Monday reviews here and on: http://koreandramareviews.com/. Come join us there!

Drama Weekend with Gomen Aishiteru (2017)

Gomen Aishiteru
aka
I’m Sorry, I Love You


I love remakes when they honor the original story and is done well. No surprise here that the screenwriter, Taeko Asano (Love Generation, Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake, Last Friends) and Director, Ishii Yasuharu (Byakuyako, Kurosagi, Ouroboros) would put together a great rendition of one of my favorite super melodramas, the Korean drama, Sorry, I Love You.

Happy New Years to ALL (2018)


I want to take this time to wish everyone a Happy New Year! As we enter the new year, I’m wishing the best for everyone. 2017 had its ups and down as it became clear that I had no time to devote to my blog as I had wished. Between work and the ups/downs of my personal life, I really had no time.

So, will 2018 be any better? Probably not. For work, I have many major projects that have to be completed this year. There is no time allowed to let the schedules slide. Another thing is the sadness we are expecting as my mother’s last remaining younger sister is at the end of her life. Time is really precious and we really need to spend time with love ones when we can. This year also marks the 2 year anniversary of my beloved sister’s death. Again, death is expected but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept.

Regardless. I hope that every has a wonderful and prosperous New Year. I do plan on returning to review at least one movie each month and I still have several blog posts to complete or write. Here are some of those I plan to write…one day:

A Night with beWhy in Washington DC (Concert review)
Best of 2017 Japanese Dramas (Still watching a few so I’m not ready)

KARD in Washington, D.C (2018)


You don’t have to tell me how late I am in writing this! I know. After a couple of months of writing performance reviews at work, I was really tired of sitting at the computer/laptop and writing anything at length, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it; however, I promised that I would write something before bewhY concert at Howard University Theater in November. So, with one day to go, here I am. Putting remembrance to blog post. Continue reading

A Night With G-Dragon…..And Some Really Great Friends! (2017)

G-Dragon aka Kwon Ji-yong


Of course I am writing this weeks after my return from Canada. First of all, what a wonderful experience to meet new friends for the first time! Friends that when you get to hang out with them and talk to them, its like you’ve known them for years!! Okay, I digress from the real reason you probably came to check out this blog post. However, my trip, suggested by my new BF Jay to come to Toronto to see G-Dragon was an utter success! Not only did I get a chance to meet Jay but also to see and meet our little maknae, Mawiie after years of talking to her on Twitter, Kakao, and Facebook! In addition, it was a chance to meet another new young friend, Marie! I guess I can consider myself a seasoned concertgoer as this makes my second full concert (BAP has the first honors) and my only fanmeet (and probably my last) with GOT7. More to come for September 2017 when me and my BAP concert buddies do a repeat and we go see K.A.R.D at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. Continue reading
