Noona’s Playlist: Mini Album 4


I’m back with the songs I currently listen to on repeat!  It’s the female K-Pop edition too!  It feels like every time I turn around I have more Korean music downloaded.  I’m pretty sure the songs multiply when I’m not looking!  That’s ok, because I am really enjoying discovering new bands, new songs by bands I already follow, and rediscovering songs I love.  These songs are all the first that drew me to each group.  Let’s get right into the songs for this mini album!

2017: New Year Drama Resolutions!


Happy New Year!!

Am I the only one who can’t believe that we are already in 2017?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to be moving on and looking to the future for new and better things.  I have supremely high hopes for the new year both with blogging and with dramas.  As always I set myself a few goals and look back at what I wanted to accomplish in 2016.  In previous years that I’ve done things real life has prevented me from really doing all the things I wanted to do here in the blogverse and dramaland.

2016: Year in Review


What a year!  Seriously, this year has been an emotional roller coaster.  Some truly awesome stuff happened and then a few things that threw me for a serious loop that I had some difficulty dealing with.  It was so tough that I had to take a few months break for my mental health.  Then there was a whole month gone for taking care of my mommy with her severely broken ankle.  Real life has finally taken a turn for the better, for which I am extremely grateful!  I’m in a good place emotionally and my mommy is walking again on her own and all better!  Despite all the real life stuff that took me away, I had a very good blog and drama year!  I’m actually pretty proud of all the blogging that I did this year and just as proud of all the dramas I got to watch this year!

Pint-Sized Review: Cinderella and the Four Knights


This Review of Cinderella and Four Knights Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

I didn’t go into this drama with exceptionally high expectations.  I wanted something bubbly and fun with lots of cutesy romantic moments.  I didn’t think that was too much to ask for.  Plus I have enjoyed Jung Il Woo in everything I’ve watched of his.  Also, I adore Lee Jung Shin, CNBLUE is one of my favorite bands.  It had potential to be a fun bit of brain candy.  There was so much potential in this show, loads of it.  Sadly, it never took advantage of any of the story opportunities.  Combined with the flat writing and cliche plot points I was disappointed, even with my low expectations.   Don’t get me wrong, there were things to like with this drama, but the things I could live without overwhelmed what could have been a fun drama.

Review: Full House (Thai)


This Review of Thai Full House Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

This show was super fluff and pretty darn adorable.  It was my first ever Thai drama and it opened a whole new world of dramas to me.  From here I watched several other Thair dramas and enjoyed them too!  You can see my intial thoughts on Full House here.  I liked it within the first few episodes and I continued to enjoy it throughout the twenty episode run.  I said this in my First Glance post, but I like to call these sorts of dramas the brain candy of the drama world.  It wasn’t too terribly complicated, a silly over the top plot concept, and pretty actors.  Overall I had fun with this drama and would recommend it if you are looking for something light!

Review: Boss & Me


This Review of Boss & Me Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

After fell in love with Love O2O I found translations of the Gu Man novel it was based on.  Which is when I discovered, to my ultimate joy, that there were other dramas based on Gu Man’s novels!  So, after giving myself a day to relish in the Love O2O feels I hit play on Boss & Me.  Oh boy, I am so glad that I did!  I think that I must really love Gu Man’s writing because I adored Boss & Me just as much as I loved Love O2O!!!

What I Wanted:

  1. Something as addictive and cracktastic as Love O2O
  2. A sweet and fluffy romance
  3. Really amazing OTP moments
  4. Low amount of drama
