Something New: The Noona Meter

There are so many tropes out there that are repeated throughout dramaland.  I am admittedly a fan of quite a few of them, however, there is one that captures my heart a little more than others.  The title of the page gives it away.  So without further ado I present my homage to the Noona Romance.

Noona_Meter_01What is it about the Noona Romance that gets me right in the feels?  I did my best to explain that or at least touch on what I love in a Noona Romance here.  I”m most assuredly a Noona myself or if you’d prefer an Ahjumma.  Either way I’m certain that puts my heart in the right place.  Regardless of reasons I love them so!

Review: Last Cinderella


This was recommended to me by someone on My Drama List, and boy am I thankful they did!  It was also my very first Japanese drama, as well as my first introduction to Haruma Miura (who will promptly be showing up on the Noona Killer list).  I thoroughly enjoyed the entire show and really wanted more episodes!  I would have been in drama heaven if there had been an episode showing the happy couple after she said yes to the marriage proposal!  But even without that, this has made it into my top five favorite drams!
