.dat The Bride of Habaek First Impressions.

The Bride of Habaek When the narcissistic water god Ha Baek (Nam Joo-hyuk) visits earth in order to find a stone powerful enough to help him claim his throne, he seeks out the help of his servant and destined bride, psychiatrist So-ah (Shin Se-kyung), whose family is fated to serve the water god for generations. The problem is that she has no belief in the gods and initially mistakes him for suffering from delusions. Things get even more strange, however, when the wind god Bi Ryum (Gong Myung), the water goddess Mu Ra (Krystal), and a hotel CEO/demi-god Hu Ye (Lim Ju-hwan) show up to complicate things.

.dat Breaking News: Song Joongki & Song Hyekyo’s Marriage.


I’m sure many of you have caught a whiff of this by now, because this piece of news certainly washed out all of my social media feed! After rounds of denial about dating “rumors” (now known to be facts, not rumors), Song Joongki and Song Hyekyo have not only admitted that they have been in a relationship since 2015, but are going to tie the knot on October 31, 2017 aka Halloween!

.dat Ruler: Master of the Mask Thoughts.

With Yoo Seungho, Kim So Hyun, Kim Myung Soo (Infinite’s L) and Yoon So Hee leading, I was drawn to this drama. Maybe because things aren’t going our protagonist’s way right now, I am extremely frustrated with the drama and find myself skipping over a lot of the scenes, but at about three quarters into the drama, I feel like things are getting a bit draggy.

.dat kVariety Repertoire – Current Watches.

I think of variety shows as weekly doses of laughter that heal my soul. In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it is easy to lose oneself in a monotonous lifestyle and be trapped in accumulating stress, but watching variety shows helps me out a bit. Every time I hit play and sit back to enjoy the 90+ minutes, I not only forget my troubles through laughter, but I also learn as some (if not most) of the weight is washed out of my system. I want to share some of this medicine with you, so I present to you:

.dat Abnormal Summit Thoughts.

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 share their thoughts on a variety of topics.

.dat 2017 Drama — Top 10 Picks.

Hi everyone! I know we’re just at the halfway mark for 2017, but I figured with all the amazing dramas 2017 had for us, might as well start a bit early! I tried my best in terms of “ranking” the dramas I actually watched this year — from this year (Signal aired back in 2016, so it won’t be on this list even though I just finished it and wrote a review). Rather than numbering them, I’ll just make it super relative: the top will be, well, the top picks from me to you BUT that does not mean that #10 is bad or anything! These are the top 10 (for now), so they’re all pretty good! Over the second half of 2017, some of these dramas might disappear from this list and be replaced by others, but this might also not be the case (hopefully second half won’t be that bad).

Well, enough from me! Here’s my
