K-Drama Rewind: Descendants of the Sun

There's something about re-watching an old drama that relaxes you. First, you already know the ending, so it definitely won't make you anxious anymore. You know who's the endgame or who's the killer. The plot twists don't surprise you anymore. You can finally see through the smallest of details in that scene. Second, you get…

Science says a dimple is an anomaly in the cheek’s muscle that causes a dent when the individual smiles. An anomaly, that we can all agree, we all love especially if it’s on our favorite Korean actors' faces. The imperfection just somehow makes them more charming than they already are. And so, we list down…

K-Drama Rewind: Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Let me share something personal about the ahjummamshies squad. When we were just starting out as friends who share a common interest in Korean dramas ages ago, Tipsy Ahjumma asked me to watch this fun sageuk about a group of young scholars studying in Joseon's prestigious university for future government officials. Sounds like a common…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Finale

We reach the end of the long and winding maze that is Chicago Typewriter. I really enjoyed reviewing this series, although it's just sad that it got low ratings in Korea. I just hope more people get to watch it and appreciate the superb writing and admirable execution of the script. Yoo Ah-in, Go Kyung-pyo,…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 15

We are about to end this melancholic journey, and revelations are flying everywhere.

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 14

It pains me so much that after all the hype built to support this drama, Chicago Typewriter remains to be underrated, and still far from reaching even just the hairline of Goblin. This drama has a lot of potential with a solid story to tell, but I guess the competition in the South Korean television market is so challenging,…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 12

It's the moment we have all been waiting for. Just as we all thought we are ready for the big reveal, it's still painful to learn the truth this way. Though the show gave us hints of Shin Yul's (Go Kyung-pyo) death, we remained in denial that maybe, just maybe, he died because of natural…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 11

I swear this series sure knows how to tug at heartstrings! I was almost disappointed with Jeon Seol's (Im Soo-jung) seemingly obvious plan of leaving our hero writer Han Se-joo (Yoo Ah-in) behind after seeing his face as the person she "killed" in the past. We are not even sure of it yet, and I…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 10

Awww, Jeon Seol (Im Soo-jung) remembers our puppy-eyed ghost! Shin Yul (Go Kyung Pyo) was the first person whom Seol recognized in her vision of her past life. She knows that he was the one who taught her how to use a pistol, and many other things. As much as I root for our OTP…

K-Drama Reaction: Chicago Typewriter | Episode 9

After weeks of zoning out from the weekly write-ups, your resident GF is back! I am sorry it took me so long to compose this episode's reaction, but I promise I would stick around more this time. Also, I'll try not to recap so much starting from now, and only share about my personal say in every episode…
