Dimpled Goddesses: Korean Actresses with Lovely Dimples

Dimpled Goddess: Korean Actress with Lovely Dimples The greeks and the romans have been writing poems about women blessed by the deities with a perfect imperfection called gelasin – that indentation that appears in the cheek when someone smiles. And if the ancient poets are still alive today they would probably croon about these Korean…

My Roommate is a Gumiho | Series Review

Another fun and unbothered drama had ended! I honestly enjoyed watching this fantasy series – not just because of the leads, but also it’s just light! If you’re looking for a fantasy drama that’s full of quirks and will not make you think deeply about anything at all, this is the one for you. No…

Start-Up | Series Review

This is one of the few nice surprises of 2020. Pitch Deck (a presentation that covers all aspects of your business in a succinct and exciting way) Start-Up’s story introduction was similar to that of a “pitch deck.” It’s so effective that the characters each gained committed and passionate “investors.” Who wouldn’t, tbh? The “point…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 11

One thing I realized while watching this episode was that there was the love of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) for Hye-won (Kang Hanna) had no strong foundation. He had no memories with Hye-won; he doesn't even remember their own wedding. All his memories consisted of Woo-jin and their kids. Hye-won was a mere image in his…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 10

So let's talk about how this episode explained that Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) are really fated to love each other no matter where on earth's timeline they may live. We started the episode with Joo-hyuk and Hye-won's (Kang Hanna) marriage starting to crumble. It's partly Joo-hyuk's fault for being indifferent to his…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 9

I don't know if it's just me or there are also other people out there who are still supportive of Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) despite everything that's been happening with him right now. I know it's easy to take sides in this drama, especially when you empathize with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), and I get where the…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 8

Making the wrong decision is still fate. In this episode, Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) learned the hard way of facing the consequences of one's actions. After witnessing the supposed "kiss" (it didn't happen) between Jong-hoo (Jang Seung-jo) and Woo-jin (Han Ji-min), he lost his cool and desperately searched everywhere for the homeless man who "helped" him…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 7

"There is no correct answer in love." I like this newfound friendship between Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) and Joo-eun (Park Hee-bon) in this alternate timeline. We all know they were not really friends in their original lives as the real Woo-jin was aloof towards the real Joo-eun. Or maybe because Woo-jin was just too stressed out…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 3

This entire episode focused on how Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) managed to drastically change his life after that trip with the time machine. He now lives an affluent life with his new wife, Hye-won (Kang Hanna). Not only that, Hye-won is apparently the only daughter of a rich corporate chairman, which makes her a chaebol heiress!…

K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 1

Yay! The first thing that came to me when I watched the pilot episode was, "Is this another Go Back Couple or another Manhole or both?" Some people are bashing this drama because of its similarity with Go Back Couple, but I totally disagree with them. We always watch recycled drama plots about friends-to-lovers, tsundere…
