Are we really nearing the end of this drama? I enjoy watching it so much it doesn't feel like it's going to end soon. I see myself so immersed in the lives of our main characters that the separation anxiety is slowly creeping in. I don't want this to end just yet. I want to…

Beom-soo and Jin-joo This director and writer tandem would make a cute couple with these two oddballs! I loved Beom-soo in Episode 5 so much. His lines were the highlight of the hour.

K-Drama Reaction: Be Melodramatic | Episodes 5-6

What I like most about Be Melodramatic was that it does not only mirror the reality of struggling in your 30s, but also it shows a different perspective of the "what ifs" of life. It has a certain way of telling a story by means of what would you NOT do in times of crisis.…

It's been a while since we wrote a K-drama reaction piece!!!! But since I'm quite hooked with this new romcom series, I thought it's the perfect way to get back into the groove of writing K-drama content. I hope this ahjumma's penchant for watching "slice of life" K-dramas would also magically bring back my eagerness…

K-Drama Reaction: Revolutionary Love | Finale

Despite all the setbacks, I liked how the drama ended. It's not easy to turn things upside down and expect it to change immediately. Breaking the norm is a challenge in itself, and introducing a new normal is an even bigger challenge. But with strong will and determination, what was once a long shot became…
