K-Drama Reaction: Flower of Evil | Finale

 “The cruel truth that shakes the perfect trust.” This was the quote written in the main poster of drama. At first, I thought it's about Do Hyun-su pretending to be Baek Hee-sung to hide his past identity. But when Cha Ji-won learned the truth, no trust was broken between them. The trust even made them…

K-Drama Reaction: Flower of Evil | Episodes 14-15

"I feel anxious every time when we're apart" I knew it was just an act. Hyun-su would never intentionally hurt his wife. Ji-won is everything for Hyun-su. She is his reason for living. And seeing them fight through this together is just too much. Hyun-su had to pretend to hostage his wife to send a…

K-Drama Reaction: Flower of Evil | Episode 11

Daebak! Please know that while writing this reaction piece, it took me a while to find the right words to express how amazing this drama is.

K-Drama Reaction: Flower of Evil | Episodes 9-10

I like how the story is going! "Just trust me" I really feel bad for Ji-won to be undergoing this unfortunate situation. I know there are times that she's meant to be annoying for pushing Hyun-su to the edge but I have decided to be extra patient with as it's not easy to be left…

I have so many emotions for these two episodes!!!! The drama is just getting better and better every week and I seriously can't have enough!

This was Ji-won's week for sure. All the pain she had to bear alone while discovering that her husband isn't who she thinks he is. She was even slapped with the truth so unexpectedly. Now I can't wait to see how the dynamics will change for our main couple. Jung Mi-sook murder case We now…

K-Drama Reaction: Flower of Evil | Episodes 3-4

Because I was so intrigued by the first two episodes of this suspense thriller, I have decided to go back into writing weekly episode reactions for the blog.

K-Culture: Dog-like vs Cat-like Faces

K-drama muggles may find it weird that Koreans often compared their beloved actors/actresses’ faces to dogs, cats, and other animal faces. But if you think about it, the resemblance is there. Aside from the physical comparison, they also tend to associate celebrity traits and impressions with animals. Why Animal Faces? The curious cat in me…

From Reel to Real to Kill: Korean Celebrities Who Used to Date

Unlike most of Korean dramas we watched, not every couple get their happily-ever-after. They might have been lovey-dovey at one point but they are now just “strangers with a familiar laugh.” So if you’re looking for a way to kill all the Valentine vibes around, you’re in the right place as I list down Korean…

K-Drama Reaction: Lawless Lawyer | Finale

Isn't it satisfying to witness an evil force's downfall? THE FINAL SHOWDOWN What more can I say aside from I love it?

K-Drama Reaction: Lawless Lawyer | Episode 15

FLIP FLOPPING I thought I could trust Pres. Ahn Oh-joo (Choi Min-soo) and Nam Soon-ja (Yum Hye-ran) even just for once. I thought that the proofs of Judge Cha Moon-sook's (Lee Hye-young) plan to destroy them once they become useless are strong enough to make them see the truth. But I'm so damn wrong! I…
