Just Watched: The King: Eternal Monarch


Wow, I just finished watching The King: Eternal Monarch. I feel cheated, y’all! Cheated! I cannot even ask the writer to give back my 16 hours because I chose to continue finishing it. I am at fault, too. But mmm yeah, this drama is a major disappointment for me. And I am sure for everyone who has been looking forward to Lee Min Ho’s comeback. In addition to that, all of us watchers knew the work of Kim Eun Sook, the screenwriter behind Goblin, Descendants of the Sun, Mr. Sunshine, The Heirs, A Gentleman’s Dignity, Secret Garden, On Air, City Hall to name a few. She is a moody writer. Mr. Sunshine, her last work, was great!

Currently Watching: Hyena


It’s very apparent why I picked this drama. Jo Ji Hoon and Kim Hye Soo. The poster itself excites me. Their BTS photoshoot got me riled up. If their chemistry already off the chart pre-drama, imagine them in this drama. I cannot take my eyes off them. And I secretly ship them off-screen now. Am I allowed to do this? Is Ji Hoon seeing someone? Is Hye Soo single? I better google *wipes sweat*

Just Watched: Hot Stove League



Yes, I am a bit late with posting Hot Stove League. I was behind on my watch but I was able to catch up with everyone. The only thing I could not catch up was posting it under Currently Watching segment. I heard so much raving about this show which prompted me to pick it up. I knew it was a baseball drama. I am never a fan of Korean sports drama. I have dropped a few. I had a good time watching Prison Playbook with minimal baseball exposure. I thought it would not hurt watching Stove League, too. I started with zero expectation but by the end of it, I reached maximum satisfaction!

Currently Watching: Doctor John


I spent my weekend marathoning Doctor John! I started the first four episodes in Malaysia but did not get to continue. It felt good to continue watching this drama. Ji Sung never fails me and he is the reason I am watching Doctor John. I guess he is the reason I can handle this medical drama. There were not many bloody scenes as I thought it would be; thank goodness I survive. Now before this drama, I know nothing about pain management. But now, I am very curious. Even got me google for it!

Currently Watching: My Absolute Boyfriend


I went back and forth before starting My Absolute Boyfriend. On one hand, this drama offers Yeo Jin Goo. Yes, I said “offer” because I have seen clips of pure fan service to fan girls like me! But, on the other hand, this is a Japanese remake. I’ve seen the original version and the idea stuck in my head. I guess what I want to say is I’m afraid of the show getting butchered. Also, rarely would I read comments on MDL but I did this time. Some says the ex-boyfriend character is extremely annoying and his over-and-over stalking mode turns people off.

Currently Watching: The Nokdu Flower


I just had to add The Nokdu Flower to my watch list. The cast line is so stellar I cannot miss the opportunity of not picking up this epic sageuk drama. Why do I say epic? It is directed by Six Flying Dragons‘ director. I am a big fan of Yoon Shi Yoon but not a huge fan of Jo Jung Suk. But I am fully aware how talented Jung Suk is and I believe this is his first period drama – correct me if I am wrong coz I am too lazy to dig into his bio at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, though. Just because I am not a fan it does not mean I won’t watch it. I always go for the story regardless of the actors.
