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.

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!

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

Parting Ways: Suki na Hito ga iru koto

This Review of Suki na Hito ga iru koto (A Girl & Three Sweethearts) Contains Spoilers

There is this strange need to finish dramas no matter what that in all my years of drama watching I haven’t been able to shake.  I do try to be a little picky when choosing a drama so that I can, hopefully, watch dramas that I will enjoy.  No matter how careful you are, there is really no controlling how you’ll enjoy dramas.  In my past years I haven’t watched many currently airing dramas, maybe 1 or 2 a year while they were airing.  So I am able to research and read reviews so that I can better understand the drama and what happens in it.  Which has helped me avoid dramas that I might drop.  This year I’ve watched 3 dramas as they have aired and currently watching 3 that are airing now.  So there aren’t any completed reviews for me to read to determine if I’ll want to watch the drama from beginning to end.  Which is the case with A Girl & Three Sweethearts, I watched this as it aired.
