Liar Game Drama Review

Season two! Season two! 

Seriously though, I think that I aged ten years for each of the last two episodes I was so stressed out the whole time and then it had this wonderful open ending. It wasn't annoying open though like some other dramas that I could mention 


Sorry, one of my students must have given me a winter cold that somehow onomatopoeiaed itself onto my screen. I'll try to keep that under control in the future.

The King's Face First Impressions

My newest sageuk. I have been on a big history kick lately with watching Secret Door and I would like some history books but that means that I would actually need to find one and then I would have to transport it back to the states when finally I go back. I think that I might just suck it up though because I also miss reading things. I miss my books! Someday, I will be reunited with them!

After doing a little reading about Prince Gwanghae, our main character, I have found that he was the king before King Injo who is the king in the drama Cruel Palace: War of the Flowers. I have recently been getting back in to watching that drama and maybe this will help me finish the last twenty episodes. I don't know where this drama will end, but it will give me more background information about the slight uselessness that was King Injo. From my reading, again, Gwanghae may have been dethroned, but he at least did good things. Injo took over the throne and just threw the country into war and because of that, ruined the economy.

Mamamoo Piano Man MV Review

Did I not just say that I wanted more jazz in my life? I think I did. Thank you Mamamoo for filling my need for for jazzy swing in my K-pop. I now have the desire for a Mamamoo/SPICA collaboration project but I'm not sure if the world is ready for the magic that would happen if they were to do that though. They could probably destroy a small building with their voices.

I just had a though, can Mamamoo sing the Mulin Rouge version of "Lady Marmalade"? Not anyone can sing that song and I think that these girls could do it.

Pinocchio First Impressions

I'm a little behind in writing about this drama, I've been a little busy at work. So many essays, so little time. Especially when reading these essays is sometimes like defining hyrogliphics; bad hand writing plus bad English equals difficult reading.

I have been waiting for this drama to begin and I do not feel disappointed from what I have been presented with thus far. To be perfectly honest, it actually reminds me of I Hear Your Voice in some ways. It is the same writer/director team though so, I shouldn't be too surprised. You have our lead, Dal Po played by Lee Jong Suk (the most obvious connection) who has a traumatic past that connects him with our female lead. He can also read the female lead's mind in this drama too! In Ha played by Park Shin Hye can't lie so Dal Po always knows what she is thinking. Then, because of his past and the distrust that it caused him, he puts himself right in the center of the people that threw his life into chaos in the first place.

Hi Suhyun I'm Different MV Review

Thank you for this song and video. I feel like I haven't written anything in forever and now I have something to write about! The most exciting thing that has happened to me lately is Kyuhyun's solo debut, and even though that was really exciting because Kyuhyun has the voice of an angel, the video and song didn't give me much to talk about. The video was artsy, the song was beautiful, it made me want to drink hot chocolate and wear a sweater, that was about it. Super Junior!

Hi Suhyun's song is totally different from Kyuhyun's song is every way possible and I love it. If there was anyone in YG who can do a jazzy sound it is definitely Lee Hi who we haven't heard from in a while and I love Akdong Musician, I think Suhyun is adorable and her voice is great as well. Put then together and what do you get? Greatness.

Zhou Mi Rewind Mini Album Review

You know what I have been rewinding? This album. Zhou Mi has always been my favorite member of Super Junior M and I have been patiently waiting for the moment that he would be able to do this. It wasn't really until the Break Down album that I felt that Zhou Mi and Henry really got to show what they could do and now the two of them have done solo work. I personally like Zhou Mi's style better though so the feels are stronger right now then they were for Henry's solo debut. Sorry Henry, you're cool too.

Zhou Mi Rewind MV Review

The moment is finally here. The Gentleman Mimi has at long last put out a solo album. I could cry I'm so happy about this. When the teasers came out and there was all the speculation, I didn't really care who it was, but I knew that it had to be someone in an existing group, why else would they hide his face? I also knew that it wasn't going to be Kyuhyun like some people though because Kyuhyun is the TOP of Super Junior, he doesn't take his shirt off.
