Recently, I’ve gotten into yet another kVariety show — but technically this isn’t your typical variety show that’s all fun and games. Although it has its moments of laughter JTBC’s Abnormal Summit is a show where a bunch of foreigners from a wide variety of backgrounds but all residing in Korea gather to debate and […]
Taking a Closer Look @ the 2016 SBS/MBC/KBS Drama Awards SBS MBC KBS HAN SUK KYU LEE JONG SUK SONG JOONGKI & SONG HYE GYO To be very frank, of all the Daesang (Grand Prize) winners from the 3 major broadcasting networks, SBS was the most fair.

Vampire Detective Final Thoughts (there are definitely spoilers) Okay. So I didn’t like the ending too much. Of course characters had to die, premises for a possible season 2 had to be set – yadda. Yadda. Yadda. But it sure wasn’t satisfying as a series – I’ve seen better.

This little review/reflection is pretttyyyy late, but better late than never right? But first, let’s take some time to get into the zone and get a bit nostalgic: BROMANCE. MORE BROMANCE.

When a drama “dies” – note the quotation marks… It’s like watching a plant you’ve nurtured wither away into nothing. What’s your worst experience?
