At First Glance: Romantic Princess


I picked this drama completely at random.  So honestly I had no preconceived notions, I used my list and a random roller, determined to watch whatever it was that I landed on.  Now my possible watch list is really-really huge so it could have been anything.  But I was feeling brave!

Review: My Queen


This Review Contains Some Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees

This Noona Romance has been on my radar for a very long time. However, I am a little wary of Taiwanese dramas because they have a lot of episodes and can have the tendency to drag too much. Yet I couldn’t resist Ethan Ruan as the wooer of a strong Noona. I’m quite pleased that I gave in and watched. Continue reading “Review: My Queen”

My Queen: Ep 3 & 4


This Episode Review Contains Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees.

Lucas and Wu Shuang set out to meet the mistress who was once Wu Shuang’s teacher. It is pointed out by her co-workers and boss how callous this is, though it falls into line with what we know of her character thus far. She sees only the story, not the fallout of what will happen when the story is published. Wu Shuang doesn’t consider the politician’s wife and son or the mistress and daughter, they are an acceptable loss when compared with getting her story. She and Lucas trick her former teacher into giving them information and record it even though they said they wouldn’t. This doesn’t sit well with Lucas, though Wu Shuang ignores his protests.

Noona Killer – Ethan Ruan

The first time that I saw Ethan Ruan was in “Fated to Love You.”  I have never cried as much watching a drama as I cried watching that one.  Even though I needed to take a break from the emotional roller coaster, I was completely enamored by Ethan Ruan.

My Queen: Ep 1 & 2



This Episode Review Contains Spoilers in the Form of Fangirl Squees.

It has been ages since I have watched a drama of any sort.  Let me tell you, I have missed it greatly.  Once I was well enough to sit and watch a show then I was faced with the exceptionally difficult question of what to watch.  My lovely and amazing drama blogsphere friends offered some excellent suggestions, one of which was Witch’s Romance (thank you Drama Fan!)  I very much want to watch that show, however, the Taiwanese version has been on my watch list for ages.  So I thought I’d start there, and since I’m such a humongous fan of Noona Romances, it just seemed to fit perfectly.

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!

I’m creating this space in order to build a shrine to the trope that I hold so dearly to my heart.

Something New


The New Year has brought on a lot of firsts for me, and I have to admit that I am loving every moment of it.  With the New Year has come a remodeling of the site, with all new banners to fit the larger header space, and a double live watch session; Emergency Couple and I Need Romance 3.

Now a new, shiny, and brilliant idea was proposed to me.  My honorable Sunbaenim suggested that, because of my obsession with Noona Romances that I perhaps make an attempt to gear my blog a go to place for reviews and suggestions on Noona Romances.  And you know what?  I think that’s just about the spiffiest idea I’ve heard all year.
