Quick Post: Still Here!

Hello there! Sorry for the extended absence. I’ve switched to watching mostly cdramas lately. The few kdramas that I started left me slightly underwhelmed despite its charming male leads. I will be back (hopefully before July wraps up) to share a few of my thoughts on the following shows:

kdramas: Man to Man, Secret Romance, Suspicious Partners
cdramas: Ode to Joy 2, Rush to the Dead of Summer

Cheers,
Mitta

A slice of life drama about five women of different backgrounds and age group but ultimately it is about the friendships, girl-power and sorority which won me over.

Wrapping Up My 2016 Dramas

Just like that.

Another winter is here and a brand new year is upon us. And that means hundreds of hours spent drama gazing, weeping, laughing, cherishing but also sometimes eye-rolling, chastising, and growling.

In total, I watched 13 full-length 2016 dramas this year: 2 Chinese, 1 Taiwanese, 1 Chinese/Korean collaboration and 9 Korean. Ah. So — kdramas still reign supreme.

As a whole, none in my 2016 trough made it to the holy grail of my masterpiece mount but a few got pretty darn close.

Bucketful of Tears: Loving, Never Forgetting

I don’t remember the last time I cried this much over make-belief, fairy-tale characters and story-telling. Over the years of drama watching, there were many, many moments where my heart fluttered, my voice cracked and the tears threatened but rarely over and over, and over again.

And yet, Loving, Never Forgetting managed to do just that.
