Mine | Series Review

It took me a while to finally finish this series, and I’m completely taken aback by the complexity of it all. The entire drama screams women empowerment, and though it’s not perfect, it definitely raised some important points. The drama’s main suspense was the guessing game on Han Ji-yong’s (Lee Hyun-wook) real killer. Among the…

K-Drama Rewind: I Can Hear Your Voice

This drama catapulted Lee Jong-suk into stardom. Let’s find out why. At first glance, this drama seems to be a noona romance with a mind-reading fantasy theme on the side. But as the story went into full gear, it started to detach from that initial impression. The lives of the main leads Jang Hye-sung (Lee…

K-Drama Reaction: Mother | Finale

After a long journey of sacrifices, forgiveness, and healing, we've finally reached the end. The road was surely not easy but it taught us a lot of lessons about life, motherhood, and unconditional love. Soo-jin (Lee Bo-young)'s bid to adopt Yoon Bok (Heo Yool) was proven not easy.

K-Drama Reaction: Mother | Episode 11

It's the worst idea for Soo-jin (Lee Bo-young) to confront Seol-ak (Son Suk-ku) alone but I have a pretty good feeling that Dr. Jung (Lee Jae-yoon) is somewhere out there working on the sidelines. All I pray for is that Soo-jin to be able to defend herself if needed and be able to get Hye-na…

The chase begins OMG Seol-ak (Son Suk-ku) abducted Yoon Bok (Heo Yool)!

Remember it? I knew…

K-Drama Reaction: Mother | Episode 9

Just when I thought I had cried so much as I could, this episode proved me wrong. The confrontations were heart-wrenching all thanks to the beautifully written script. Ja-young's story It's interesting that Ja-young (Go Sung-hee)'s story has striking similarities to Soo-jin's birth mom (Nam Gi-ae)'s. Ja-young was also abandoned by her husband after giving…

I was sick for days and I've been warped from dramaland into dreamland for quite a bit. Okay, let's go back to business. Run!…
