Taxi Driver | Series Review

I’ve judged Taxi Driver wrong in its first week. I was so used to watching character-driven plots that I thought this series would go to that route. But nuh-uh, I’ve got it wrong. It was clear in the succeeding episodes that Taxi Driver would have an action-packed plot-driven narrative and it just needs me –…

The Curious Ahjumma: Second Lead Couple

I recently wrote a list of second couples we love in K-dramas. After finishing that listicle, it kind of felt like I haven’t released all my ~feels~ for these secondary pairings. And so, I have decided to make a relatively longer feature for our beloved second lead couples in K-drama because they DO deserve more…

I know it is still too early but I'm already claiming this. Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) and Kim Mi-so's (Park Min-young) wedding is dramaland's wedding of the year! Who is with me? A WEDDING THAT IS MEANT TO BE It's always so beautiful to witness two people ending up exchanging vows of love in front…

"You know that I never ask for someone's permission. And yet, I am asking for your permission in the most polite and the most romantic way. Will you marry me?" ~ Lee Young-joon OPERATION PROPOSAL I know I should be sympathizing with Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) right now because I can clearly see how stressed out…

K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 14

"I found it. I think staying as your secretary is what I want to do. Perhaps... I've been doing the job I am good at and is perfect for me. Because I've gotten too used to it, I didn't realize it. I like assisting someone... and solving problems that break out. I like the sense…

Lee Young-joon just proved to me in this episode that he's far from being a saint, and I think I liiiiike it. 😂 YOUNG-JOON, THE SEXY BULLDOZER Omygosh, uri Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) couldn't stop his bursting feelings for Secretary Kim (Park Min-young) anymore! He's so open about his physical need and desire for Secretary Kim,…

K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 10

The mystery is becoming clearer now. YOU'RE NOT THAT BOY Madam Choi (Kim Hye-ok) told her husband that she wants to finally reveal the truth about the decades-old kidnapping incident to their two sons. This proved my belief that they aren't aware that Lee Young-joon (Park Seo-joon) has never really lost his memories of that…

K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 8

This episode is giving me two strong, opposing emotions at the same time. I'm very happy because finally, Secretary Kim Mi-so (Park Min-young) accepted Lee Young-joon's (Park Seo-joon) heart, and confessed to him that she likes him, too. But, I'm also confused about what really happened to Secretary Kim, Young-joon, and Lee Sung-yeon (Lee Tae-hwan)…

K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 7

BECAUSE YOU'RE KIM MI-SO Alright, I'll admit that I didn't put much weight on Lee Young-joon's (Park Seo-joon) cryptic statement in the previous episode saying he hired Secretary Kim (Park Min-young) because she's Kim Mi-so. But now I realized that it's quite the biggest clue that this drama has dropped so far, hinting that Young-joon…

K-Drama Reaction: Why Secretary Kim | Episode 2

And the challenge to keep Secretary Kim continues! DATING BEFORE MARRIAGE Yoomyung Group vice president Lee Young-joon's (Park Seo-joon) dilemma shifted from why his trusted secretary Kim Min-so (Park Min-young) suddenly wants to resign to why she doesn't want to marry him. LOL. Seriously? He calls himself 'perfect,' but he doesn't know the answer to…

K-Drama Reaction: Fight My Way | Episode 8

Yikes, I wasn't expecting Ae-ra (Kim Ji-won) to be the first one confessing her feelings but it's pretty noticeable that she's more aware of how she truly feels than Dong-man (Park Seo-joon) who seems to be in a tug-of-war when it comes to realizing his true emotions. But with this turn of event, will the…
