Can I just take a moment and pat myself on the back, remind myself that I’m awesome and congratulate myself on completing my first ever week of college? I think that deserves some mental online applause. It was totally overwhelming, especially for an introvert like myself–but I made it! And hey, I get to go grocery shopping tomorrow. Clean the bathroom. Maybe even do some laundry (Oh, that’ll feel good). Even with all the craziness though, I still managed to watch at least an episode a day and still keep up on homework. Go, Cozybooks! I believe in you!
My Reason: Because when you’re homesick and just calling home feels hard, there’s always W to give you a sense of familiar ground. You know K-dramas. They’re your detox–they make the insane manageable and the crazy a bit more normal again.
Upcoming and Excited
K2. Oooh, this is starting to look good. I managed to track down a trailer through a third-party website, and I liked what I saw. Which, to be honest, wasn’t a whole lot… but I’m still excited!
Tomorrow With You (I forgot the actual premier date for this drama, but wow! What a cast! A few of my favorite actors and a writer I feel pretty ok about. Plus I do love a good time travel drama. Let’s the hijinks begin!
What I’m Watching
Boss and Me (episode 9. This chinese drama turned out to be a lot better than I was expeting. Normally the over acting style turns me off within an episode or two–but they tone it down and totally make it work here. That’s not to say he doesn’t drive me crazy sometimes with his “holier-than-thou” attitude… but now that he’s really falling for her it’s pretty hard to stay mad at him.
W: Two Worlds (Episode 13. WHAT IS LIFE?! HE SHOT HER! SHE’S DEAD! WHAT? They were so cute, and I finally got to see the scene with the couple shirts, and then she was gone and then she was dead, and then they totally drove right into each other! Wow.
Jealousy Incarnate (episode 4. I totally wasn’t expecting the breast cancer plot–but you know, they’re making it work for me. And I absolutely love how the show is living up to it’s title. So many trios for jealousy. I think I nearly died with the two ladies showed up wearing the same outfit. Battle of the wives, indeed.)
Let’s Eat (episode 4. Ok, so I’m officially a little freaked out that our next door neighbor foodie is secretly a killer. That wouldn’t be good. But on the other hand, I was totally stunned and happy when he showed up in Let’s Fight Ghost to talk about food with all the right stylistic choices of Let’s Eat. That was pretty fun. I just can’t watch it while I’m hungry… maybe I should go grocery shopping tomorrow.)
Pied Piper (I wrote a review on this one… check it out, if you’d like. But the short version is, great philosophy, great main cast, slightly disappointed by lack of terror of and empathy with the villain.)
Let’s Fight Ghost (What am I going to do on Mondays from now on?! I have nothing. Nothing. I really ought to try Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo [I can see why some are shortening that] but I don’t really want to at the moment. Do I?)
I’m looking forward to my second week of school… and all the drama that comes with it! Hah, pun.
