Seriously! Does Monday get better than this for drama news?!! So looking forward to this!!

The Drama Corner

Yayyyy! Jo Seung Woo is back! I already loved him after his mesmerizing act in movie Classic but my love grew by leaps and bounds after watching him being awesome again in 2014 drama God’s Gift – 14 Days (and I would have said the love thing about this show as well but that ending!!!*big sigh*). Hence, of course I’m grinning like a Cheshire cat after hearing the news that he has confirmed upcoming mystery thriller for tvN,

Drama Review – Mind Game (2015)

Mind Game (2015)

Mind Game (2015)

Once in awhile, I encounter a Singaporean drama worth discussing as well as one that is subbed. Actually, I started watching Mind Game in the early spring but after 14 episodes, the subber(s) either took a vacation or a long break and disappeared! I’m not sure which one but it wasn’t until late fall that the rest of this drama turned up. Happy I was! Continue reading

Death Cash (2016) – Episode 6

Episode 6

Episode 6

I swear, I cannot believe not many people are watching this drama! As a big Final Destination movie fan, there are so many nuances of this drama that really reminds me of the movie. We have a story; old wives tale if you will, a person who sees death before it happens and the people that are trying to stop all of this from happening. Win! Win! (For cast and synopsis information see Episode 1) Continue reading

ON Ijou Hanzai Sousakan Todo Hinako (2016) Episode 3

My first words after the end of this episode was simply: WOW! There is no other way to describe it. Just imagine an episode which exceeds the sheer brutality of the movie Silence of the Lambs (circa 1991) which is the first analogy I can come up with to give you an idea what this episode was all about. Again, this drama is not for everyone! As a matter of fact, it should come with a warning message before every episodes! Forget drama content ratings! This episode alone was way up there in the hemisphere when it comes to the macabre! (For cast and synopsis information see Episode 1) Continue reading

Marathon Worthy – Decoded (2016)

Decoded (2016)
解密 / Jie Mi

This Chinese drama was definitely not on anyone’s radar. I happened to see it pop up while on the Viki website and after reading the synopsis, I had to watch it. The period in which the drama takes place is one of the times which not a lot of information has been told to us here in the U.S. Yes, before you say it, it probably has been sanitized and cleared through proper channels; but life for the Chinese people during the 30-50s is really an unknown period which is why it is so fascinating to watch for me.

Japanese Drama Spring Season 2016 – What I Watched! Or What I Had Time To Watch!

Japanese Spring 2016 Dramas

Japanese Spring 2016 Dramas

As I sit here watching a movie that is making me jump left and right, I will try to write my Spring 2016 thoughts for the Japanese Spring season for 2016. This is one of those rare seasons where I truly watched one drama from each of the genres that I like. The thing I like about Japanese dramas is that they are short and sweet! There is no dragging of plot lines and non-sensical stories that normally have me complaining profusely.

The Spring represented some of my favorites coming back to the scene: Jun, Shota, Charlotte, and even Haruka! Another thing that the Spring brought to me was the boys! All the lovely idols boys! Before this spring, I only knew EXILE but now I know J Soul Brothers, DOBERMAN INFINITY, and Kozmic Blue. Here we go! Continue reading
