This was the first drama that I picked after taking close to a three month break from watching any Asian Dramas. I was still watching variety shows, primarily The Return of Superman and Running Man, but I had stopped watching dramas. So when I finally couldn’t hold out any longer I took my time in picking a show. Since my most favorite trope is the Noona Romance, I started there. Looking through what I have listed on the Noona Meter I read through the synopsizes and reviews for the majority of the list. What drew me to Baby-Faced Beauty was the unique twist on the Noona Romance. I’m certainly glad that I picked this!
I picked up this drama after reading a review by Fangirl. So when I finished Kyo wa Kaisha Yasumimasu I decided it was time to give it a try.
First, it isn’t anything like I was expecting based on a few reviews and the synopsis. But that’s not to say I don’t like it. In truth I wasn’t sure if I’d stick with it after the first episode. Though I’m glad I gave it another episode before deciding what to do.
During my hiatus I often thought about new features and post types that I could include to help make my blog better and help provide more content. Of course with my Drama Resolutions I’ve promised myself that I will watch more dramas and movies so that I can in turn write more reviews. I am most definitely going to get more reviews written! But I also want to add some new content that is more bite-sized like my Lightning Strike Movie Reviews. So I’ll be adding three new categories to my repertoire.
I completely missed setting up my New Year’s Resolutions at the beginning of this year, so I’m going to do a Mid-Year Resolution! Never too late to set some goals, right?
The last resolutions I made were on January 2, 2014. I wanted to take a moment to look back at what I wanted to accomplish last year and see if I was actually able to manage any of it.
After trudging through Playful Kiss and mostly enjoying It Started With a Kiss /They Kiss Again, I’d vowed that I wasn’t going to watch the Japanese version of this story. However, recently posts were all over my tumblr wall, twitter, facebook, and on DramaFever about ItaKiss the Honeymoon episodes and season 2… I was intrigued by how cute it all appeared. Then with some wonderful feedback from some of my good friends in the blogverse I couldn’t resist watching season one of Love in Tokyo.
Music has always had a huge place in my life. When I was growing up my family played music together at parties and gatherings. I play a few instruments myself. Throughout school I was in orchestra, band, and marching band. It has always been there, adding flavor to my life in many ways. My musical tastes are very eclectic and varied. So when I discovered Korean Dramas it was probably a natural transition into discovering K-Pop too.
I think that passion is one of the main things that we as fans share. When we love something we really and truly love it. This love has the potential to be a little bit obsessive. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve suffered obsessive love in my Asian Drama fandom. Dramaland is rife with actors, actresses, and shows that draw out the crazy fangirl hidden inside me.
