As I reviewed what I watched while gone… I was surprised at how much there was. I guess I love K-dramas more than I’d thought, if that’s possible. Here’s my reason to watch K-drama this week: it’s a free alternative to netflix during college. Hear me out–I’m a major introvert and often need an hour or two zoned out from human interaction to prep me for the next day. Books take up a lot of room space and netflix is just another expense to add up for a poor college student… but Viki and dramafever have free options. All you need is wifi–and an adblocker, if you’re so inclined.
Upcoming and Excited:
Let’s Fight, Ghost (Premiers July 11–I don’t care what I’ve heard about Taecyeon‘s acting, I watched Who Are You? myself and thought he acted the part wonderfully–better than his female counterpart, actually. And the premise this time around looks hilarious! check out this post for a 4 min trailer.)
Let’s Fight Ghost still via K-Pop World.
W: Two Worlds (Premiers July 20–just writing the title give me heart palpitations. Lee Jong Suk is one of two actors I consistently list as a favorite. And now he’s paired up with Song Jae Jung–a writer I’ve loved. I have such high hopes for this drama, it’s not even funny. June 20, please come faster!)

What I’m Watching: ahh, my favorite part of this post. :)
Love Me If You Dare (episode 5… scratch that 18. He is so so suave. And where did all this production value and acting come from?! “Hi, Simon…” Oh my gosh! I’m dying of the chills and thrills here! This is my must watch right now.)
Mirror of the Witch (episode 12, and yes I promise I’m finishing it. I just didn’t have the heart to keep going after one of my favorite characters turned out to be a murderer. Thanks, show. Still love you, I’m making my way up to real time!)
Beautiful Mind (Episode 3, I thought I’d drop it after I watched for a while… but dangit it has a hint of something awesome, even for the shaking cameraman.)
Beautiful Gong-shim (Episode 13, I’ve read some recap comments… and I think I just need to blaze through the middle episodes so I can get back to the cute.)
What I’ve Finished:
Assassination (K-Movie, 2015)
You Call it Passion (K-Movie, 2015… I don’t know what to do with this movie. It just… happened. It didn’t feel very well put together and I left feeling unsatisfied. I wanted Pinocchio, I got… something.)
The Beauty Inside (K-Movie, 2015. I think I died when Lee Jin Wook showed up to be her boyfriend. I’m sure I was grinning like a madman.)
Accidental Detective (One part comedy one part horror, both parts fantastic. Would I watch this again? You bet.)
Northern Limit Line (K-movie, 2015. Ever seen the movie U-571? Picture that, but more sad. Review to come.)
Entertainer (*Sniff* You all grew up so well *sniff* I don’t know what I’ll do without you! I’m a bit sad I didn’t get a definitive “we’re together” from Seok-ho and Geu-rin, but the ending was perfect.)

What I’ve Dropped (or put on hold, to be fair):
Police Unit 38 (It’s on hold. I liked what I saw… I just liked Leverage more, and I’ve decided to watch that for now instead.)
Wow, that’s so. much. drama. But I love it! Here’s to keeping life balanced, heheh.
Thanks for reading,
