Are you looking for a drama that captivates the imagination as well as the heart?  That tells the stories of a vast cast of characters with passion and depth?  Look no further!


Oh My Venus: Episode 2


This Review Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

I meant to have this done last night, but we had the biggest storm on record for the past 20 years and lost power until a few hours ago.  Whew!  So I’m a day behind in watching the second episode and writing up my review.  So two episodes in and I am really loving this show.  I noticed something today that I missed in my fangirling previously, our little ditty of a show is listed as a melodrama… if you’ve been around here for any length of time you might already know that I dearly dislike melodramas.  I’ve got enough of that in my life so when I pick a drama I go for happy and bubbly and cute, if there’s a Noona Romance in the mix even better!  So, this might end up being a bit of a difficult watch for me.  But!  I’ve committed to watch the whole thing and review as I can so wish me luck!  Hwaighting!!!!

This episode picks up right where the last one left off with Young Ho saving our cutey-patutey Joo Eun from the rain as she had just discovered that her boyfriend of 15 years was cheating on her.  No bueno!  The first episode introduced a storm of faces and tid-bits of story.  This one gave us a better idea of who each character is and then dumped a whole lot of meat into the story, plus some crazy twists!  Since I’m really working hard not to turn this into a recap (they’re too hard to keep going!) I’m just going to gush about my feels.


Oh My Venus: Episode 1


This Review Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

I have been looking forward to this drama since it was announced!  I fell for So Ji Sub during The Master’s Sun and Shin Min Ah in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.  Plus Shin Min Ah is one of my most favorite actresses, I’ve been watching a great deal of her movies and have amazing intentions to watch Arang and the Magistrate. Which brings me to Oh My Venus.  I couldn’t resist, even though I vehemently swore of watching a show live after recapping and live watching both Emergency Couple and I Need Romance 3.  Yet here I am!  I won’t be recapping, that takes way too much energy.  However, my plan is to review the episodes.


Noona’s Playlist: Mini Album 2


It is probably no surprise to other lovers of the K-Ent world that as I continue on this journey my music collection seems to grow when I’m not looking.  Seriously, I turn around and I’ve got another ten songs!  So let me introduce you to the songs I’m currently listening to on repeat!


Noona Killer – Daniel Choi


Isn’t his smile infectious?  I think that is what first grabbed my fangirl heart.  Though he didn’t have much occasion to truly laugh and smile in the first drama I saw of his.  If you haven’t seen School 2013 then I highly recommend it!  Daniel was absolutely fantastic as the somewhat pompous teacher with a heart of gold.


Pint-Sized Review: Goong/Princess Hours


This Mini-Review Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

I took somewhat of a tiny break from watching dramas and go caught up with the hubs on the shows we watch together.  I also watched loads of Korean variety shows.  So when the drama bug bit me again I thought a re-watch might just be the thing!  I’ve never actually re-watched a drama.  I did fast forward my way through Boys Over Flowers last year which didn’t do much for my desire to re-watch another drama.  However, I am super happy that I decided to watch Goong again!


UnBoxing: September SnackFever Box


Watching dramas and variety shows I get to see my favorite stars eating all sorts of yummy looking snacks.  Where I live there isn’t exactly an abundance of foods from other countries.  I used to live in Seattle where there were so many more options, yet I wasn’t addicted to Asian Dramas back then.  I wish I had those options here now, but alas it is not so.

I’ve ordered a few food items here and there from Amazon and H-Mart, but it is hard to know what to buy.  Though I am hopeful that as I learn to read and speak Korean I’ll know more about the items I’m ordering.  So when an add for SnackFever popped up on my twitter feed I had to check it out.  I wanted it very much. Now I’m extremely happy that I signed up!
